    How was this? I'm willing to see anything with Sam Rockwell, whom I think is one of the most underrated actors of our time. I look at that guy and I just can't help but smile, even laugh a little.

    Yeah, I like Rockwell a lot, too. Both he and Henson give fine performances in this one. His character here has a lot in common Dixon in Three Billboards. If you liked him in that one, you probably be OK with this one, too. As for the story, it’s a typical Hollywood take on racial issues, similar to Green Book, Hidden Figures, The Help, etc... It’s a fairly gentle, almost feel good film, especially considering it’s about the KKK and school integration in North Carolina in 1971. Worth a watch if the topic interests you.

    I have just watched a fantastic film "A late quartet" about the Fugue String Quartet and based around Beethoven's Op 131 it is the 2nd time that I have seen it but this time it brought tears to my eyes have any of you seen it if not I suggest that you search it out and watch, you will not be disappointed...what a master piece that shows the intimacy of a quartet and the effect that music has.

    The first half of this movie is awesome. I’ll watch that much again if it’s on TV. Nolan’s trio of Batman films certainly was more satisfying than the ones made in the 80s and 90s although I did enjoy Jim Carrey’s Riddler. He was the only one to live up to the wonderful camp of the 1960s TV series.

    Fargo (1996) Fantastic. I had seen it before many years ago, but I had forgotten just how good it was. Disturbing characters, a disturbing plot and made into a fantastic movie.

    Bonfire of the Vanities (1990) Possibly the worst movie I've ever seen, what a disaster. I continued to watch it until the end, because 1) I have nothing else to do in the evenings 2) I wanted to find out just how bad it could be. If it was meant to be a dark comedy, it was neither dark nor funny. A good cast couldn't save this monstrosity of a film.

    Lawrence of Arabia (1962) Brilliant, every scene is a piece of art. I saw the restored version on my HD TV, the first time I've seen it like this. I had to watch something as good as this to erase the memory of the previous movie I watched.

    Airplane! (1980) Hysterical. I've seen it before, but years ago. I had forgotten just how many jokes there were in this, a joke every ten seconds.

    Inherit the Wind (1960) Very good. I enjoyed watching this.

    Great choices, except "Airplane" - which I can live without. "Inherit the Wind": one of the all-time greats.

    One of the funniest and best movies ever. "Shut the F' up Donny, you're out of your element." Never ceases to crack me up!

    Wow, I didn't even know they made this movie. Is this about Nanking? I read the book "The Rape of Nanking" and it is still one of the most powerfully brutal books I have ever read. I will look for this movie. Thank you.

    Still one of the funniest movies of all time. I must have watched that movie over 30 times when I finally watched it on DVD with the Director's commentary on. I thought I had caught everything in this movie. I was wrong. Over 30 times and I never caught the fact that they used a propeller engine sound effect whenever they showed the outside of this JET engine airplane. Just brilliant!!!
