    Yesterday (2019) - dir. Danny Boyle

    The characters were likable enough, and I enjoyed the experience overall. Danny Boyle knows how to make a movie visually interesting and involving. However, it should not have taken a talk with John Lennon for Jack to figure out what Aladdin taught us many years ago (or last year, if you saw the remake): be truthful with yourself and others. I am also mildly irked that we did not get an uninterrupted section of Let It Be, while Hey Jude has the full version over the credits.

    3.5/5

    I also rewatched Iron Man, which holds up quite well as an origin story. 4/5

    Remarkable story but very intriguing.

    Over the past week or so. I've been watching a lot of television here, probably like most of you.

    Mr Turner (2014), about the life of JMM Turner, English painter. I really liked this; well acted and no one does period dramas like the English, so realistic and graphic. Recommended.

    Elizabeth (1998) Half way through I realized that I've seen this before years ago. I don't think it lives up to the hype, it's a bit disappointing, but your millage might vary.

    Coal Miner's Daughter (1980) About the life of Loretta Lynn, country singer. I really enjoyed this. The focus is definitely on her early life of very humble hill billy beginnings.

    The Day of the Jackal (1973) Fantastic. Even though we know how it ends, it is highly suspenseful and thrilling. Definitely recommended if you like movies from the 1970s.

    Barry Lyndon (1975) A bit long, but it is an epic tale of an 18th century rogue, so it needs to be long. I liked it and certainly watchable. Not a lot of dialogue for such a long movie. Stanley Kubrick. Good use of contemporaneous music.

    Pirate Radio (2009) released in the UK under the title The Boat that Rocked. I liked it, it was entertaining. But don't watch it for a factual depiction of pirate radio off the coast of England in the 1960s. The ending is a sort of fantasy happy sequence for everyone. Lots of contemporaneous music, though some of it was released after the timeline in the movie. Entertaining, I thought, but not profound.

    The Lady in the Van (2015) Terrific, and highly recommended. Very English. A mostly true story of a homeless woman (Maggie Smith) who had a remarkable past. The widow of Ralph Vaughan Williams is portrayed. And a very interesting portrayal of the writer self and outside persona self of Alan Bennett. Thumbs up.

    I've just been listening to and loving this wonderful, lusty title music for Michael Curtiz's "Mildred Pierce" from 1945, composed by Max Steiner. How I adore that Warner Brothers sound!! Their films were unique for their wall-to-wall musical accompaniment.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mO8_3cUs0sQ

    Having read a great deal about film, worked in television (film) and studied it at university I recall reading about the earliest talking pictures; it was Howard Hawkes who wondered 'how much dialogue should we use'? At this still comparatively early period of sound film (just 18 years old when "Mildred Pierce" was made), Warner Brothers erred on the side of too much music. Not all scores were as excellent as this one, though, and many of them nearly drove audiences crazy!! That and wearing hats, even for committing murder!!

    What a wonderful soap is and was "Mildred Pierce": sleazy bars and dodgy characters, wanton daughters, guns, surging waves on the beach and melodrama in spades. I love it!!
