The Counselor (2013) Directed by Ridley Scott starring Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, Brad Pitt, Rubén Blades. Story about how a big drug deal that goes awry impacts the rich and privileged people who arranged it. By the same writer as "No Country For Old Men", "All The Pretty Horses", "The Road", and "Children Of God". Has its moments but can be a bit wordy and dull at times.

I was on a gig at a casino for five days. Went from the venue to my room, to the venue and back to my room in an attempt to avoid COVID. We'll see in the next few days if that worked. Buy anyway....
Psycho (I realized while watching it that I had seen practically every scene in the movie, but never in order. So it was really the first time I'd ever seen the whole thing from beginning to end.)

WW84

Not only good, but I liked it better than the first one, and I did like the first one.

Wonder Woman is the only good thing DC Comics has done in movies since... The Dark Knight trilogy, unlike not superman vs not batman, and the stupid league.

Joker too. I liked WW84, I'd like to see it in 3D. It's pretty close to how I've imagined a modern Wonder Woman movie to be. I would have involved Mars (from the comics, not Ares)...but who cares, it's fun.

Not if you have ever worked with NASA on anything related to orbital mechanics, and the limits thereof. If you have, that movie was physically painful to watch.

I understand. The climax to Ironman III was set on a tanker in a container ship dock. Like a zamboni in a desert.

Dark Phoenix

I thought I had not seen it before... and even though parts of it felt familiar... other parts felt new...

So I did a search here, and yes, I'd seen it before, I posted about it, there's proof...

what the hell was that?

Threads (1984) Uncompromising look at what happens to the people in an industrial city in a U.K. devastated by nuclear war. Unsparing. Highly recommended.

I liked it more than I expected. Based largely on a true story.

I've been watching the Columbo movies on Peacock. Man, that guy can solve ANY murder with the smallest clue. It's fun to see actors like Leonard Nimoy and Dick Van Dyke play evil killers. Oh, and what passed for fashion and high-end decor in the early 1970s! Just wow.

Columbo is one of my favorites as well. I love how he lured the criminals into complacency with the disheveled appearance and scatterbrained schtick, but then lowered the boom on them with logic.

Columbo's greatest ally was his adversary's arrogance. Every single one of those cases would have been significantly harder to solve had the suspect kept their mouth shut.

Lot's of yellow/ gold colored carpets, drapes and upholstery. Tons of brown and dark stained wood too.
Totally weird, because I was about 4 years old when that show first ran, so I can remember it, but now looking at old photos, I see a certain clumsy, spare bleakness to the decor then

Very little of the decor in Columbo has any real resemblance to the Modernist movement (which was spare but never clumsy).
By the late 60s a lot of that kind of fell apart.
The 70s seemed to turn its back on any real formal modernism--especially on the sets of Columbo.

I am very sure that that movie could not have been made this year. A seventeen-year-old Phoebe Cates and quite a bit of nudity would lead to calls for the director to be brought up on child pornography charges.
and that was the toned down version, originally it was going to be way more explicit

at the time i assumed they used a body double, but ... apparently not

Official Secrets (2019) Keira Knightley, Matt Smith, Ralph Fiennes. True story of the whistleblower at GCHQ who revealed how Blair's government was going to help the Bush administration strong-arm the U.N. security council to get the votes needed for war. One of only a few films to feature a Zip drive in a pivotal scene. Worth a look.

2067

uh... best looking bad movie ever?

It's like... someone who is not a geek, or interested in science, wanted to make a sci-fi movie, for some reason,so they hired a few good CG artists and prop makers, and wrote the movie themselves...

Yet, I can't say I hated it, but I wouldn't recommend it.
