    The Hidden (1987)

    A movie with Kyle MacLachlan from the '80s. I think it inspired Men in Black. Danny Trejo has a cameo.

    "Kiss of the Spider Woman", 1985 Hector Babenco - starring William Hurt and Raul Julia.

    Highly recommended and unusual film. The talented Raul Julia died much too soon and is sadly missed. Hurt has never been better than in this film; not a false note in the whole experience.

    Free movie On Demand

    Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice

    Probably free because it was fairly poorly received critically. Except for the part of Wonder Woman.

    Surprisingly, the "extended version", with an extra 31 minutes of footage was considered a far superior film.

    But we got the 'regular' version.

    Hard to follow at times.

    The score was Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL. It was kind of an up or down sort of score, hitting its marks at least half the time, and being rather tacked on at others.

    Last night we watched Solo: A Star Wars Story

    I bit confusing to watch, but overall enjoyable.

    My wife was a bit more critical, with some disappointment with casting.

    Director was brought in as a replacement director halfway though the production, and had to reshoot a great deal of already completed footage.

    The Romantic Englishwoman

    Starring: Glenda Jackson


    British film directed by Joseph Losey and starring Michael Caine, Glenda Jackson, Helmut Berger. It marks the feature-length screen debut for Kate Nelligan. The screenplay was written by Tom Stoppard and Thomas Wiseman.

    Caine plays a successful English novelist whose discontented wife, played by Jackson, decides to take a holiday to Germany in order to "find herself". There she meets a mysterious young man, played by Berger, in an elevator, which initiates an often bizarre, but extremely mature examination of desire, responsibility and the nature of love.

    The film was shown at the 1975 Cannes Film Festival, but wasn't entered into the main competition.[1]

    Last night:



    I ventured into one of the DVD cabinets yesterday and was face to face with my Dragon Dynasty collection. Dragon Dynasty 're-issues' of Hong Kong martial arts films are an excellent product. They present the best transfers available with the best audio available, much like The Criterion Collection does for important classic and contemporary films.

    Watched the 'follow-up', Justice League, last night.

    A far superior film in practically every department.

    Justice-League-5.jpg

    Hans Zimmer declined to score the film, as he had "retired" from the "Superhero business" (temporarily, as it turns out), leaving only Junkie XL to score this one. In June 2017, Danny Elfman was announced to have "controversially" replaced Junkie XL.

    Replaced? How is that there is drama in film scoring? Well, information on this "controversy' is spotty, but original director, Zack Snyder, "stepped down" during post-production due to the death of his daughter, and director Joss Whedon was brought in to take over post-production duties for Justice League, including writing and directing additional photography for the film. Ultimately he ended up changing most of the film from what Zack Snyder had already filmed, completed, and intended.

    In July 2020, Justice League actor Ray Fisher (Victor/Cyborg) accused Whedon of showing "gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable" behavior toward the cast and crew of the film.

    Among the changes Whedon made was to replace Junkie XL with Elfman.

    The Danny Elfman score was quite good, and I'm not really an Elfman fan. Nothing against him or his music, I just don't typically get excited by his oddball scoring. But I know plenty of folks that ARE fans, so it's just a matter of taste I suppose.

    No, wait, I'll suck it up and give the score an "Excellent" rating for this type of film.

    My Girlfriend and I watched the 2006 film “The Lives of Others“ (Das Leben der Anderen).




    Ulrich Mühe received the gold award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, at the Deutscher Filmpreis (German Film Awards); and the Best Actor Award at the 2006 European Film Awards. Ulrich Mühe died of stomach cancer a year later.
