On Her Majesty's Secret Service

I've been watching Bond movies since I was little yet have never seen this one.

It's not terrible, just too long. Lazenby is ok as Bond. I think the ruffled shirts put me off more. There are no gadgets, fights are more rough, Bond is forced "on leave". Diana Rigg is just weird, they probably didn't want any Emma Peel comments so she just plays an overly dramatic person.

Lazenby actually turned down the next movie, with "make love, not war" being the attitude of the day, he thought the Bond franchise would end very quickly.

OHMSS was reasonably close to the book. I liked the settings.

The Proposal (2009) Ryan Reynolds, Sandra Bullock and Betty White. Perfunctory.

I don't mind the genre.

I keep hoping for a Tracy/Hepburn or a "Harry Met Sally" flick but am usually disappointed. It Happened One Night and His Girl Friday are two of my three favourite films of all time. What can I say? I like pleasantness struck through with minor conflict.

I don't mind the genre either. There are a few too dumb to watch but you can usually guess them from the trailer. "Bringing Up Baby" has been a favorite of mine forever.

The Lincoln Lawyer (2011) Matthew McConaughey, Marissa Tomei, Ryan Phillippe, William H Macey, John Leguizamo, Michael Peña.

Legal thriller, murder mystery. Worth a look.

King Kong, the Jack Black version (best dinosaur fight in cinema, IMO).

that movie should have been great but it was just a portent of the hobbit movies ... too long, too overblown, too many back-to-back set-pieces

I just watched some YouTube videos about the central banking history and I'm wondering if we need to invade Iran, North Korea, and Cuba. Gotta see the movie. I know where to invade next, the question is will we allow it to happen? I say yes, yes we will! :p

See if you can "find" both seasons of Bosch. It's an Amazon series based on Connelly's more popular (and half brother of Haller) Hieronymous (Harry) Bosch. 20 episodes per season and superbly well made and acted.

Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) Christian Bale. Same old story. Ridley Scott made the plagues and the parting of the Red Sea as natural Phenomena instead of outright miracles. No jello was used. Impressive sets and effects. I think Bale was channeling Heston a few times.

Knowing (2009) Nicholas Cage keeps it mostly together as a single parent with a son who comes into possession of a piece of paper that foretells major disasters including the end of the earth. There's aliens as well. Entertaining enough. The crashing airplane scene was effectively done.

LOL

I saw that a couple weeks ago.

Growing up on Long Island I had heard their name for years before they got a hit.
That documentary really brought back memories about hearing of all those venues the bands would play as well as the other bands on the circuit.
I wondered what happened to all those clubs, and that documentary answered the question:
NYS raised the drinking age from 18 to 19 and then to 21 within a 2 year period.
It really killed the live music scene in the area.
I was 17 when they raised the drinking age--at that point in time it wasn't uncommon for 16 year olds to have regular access to alcohol.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

The Hunt For Red October, for about the 900th time. It's like video comfort food.

As I was watching it, I wondered how badly Michael Bay would rape that story nowadays. It made me shudder.

any director would totally change it ... tons of extreme close-ups and jittery camera mounts during each action scene

X-Men (2000) Abysmal. Pay-cheques for all concerned, nothing more. Since learning that Deadpool (good fun) was part of that franchise I have decided to give the X-Men a look. I hope the films get better.
