Thunderball (1965). So much underwater fighting! Bond bangs his requisite three women. Not a bad outing.

From Ruisia With Love (1963). Much more of a spy story than an over-the-top romp. Bond bangs his requisite three women. And Robert Shaw as one of the best bad guys ever. This one just might be my favorite Bond movie.

I remember getting into the Bond movies when I was ~12-14 and there were Bond movies being broadcast nightly (maybe after 11:00pm) for part of the summer--I recall thinking Thunderball was one that had all of the Connery Bond elements.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

Soylent Green

First time I actually see it.

Going in, I already knew what it was, have known for years, *SPOILER ALERT* [spoiler]IT'S PEOPLE![/spoiler]

What I didn't know, was that it's set in 2022.

And apart from it being a dramatic exaggeration of things, made long ago, you could say that in a certain way... it's happening!

No, too much artificial coloring, loaded with harmful chemicals, extremely bitter flavor probably. I wouldn't feed that to pigs.

Watched Antebellum. Was entertaining. I know it's a movie but the characters' missteps still make me slap my forehead.

Sticking to the Bond thing. That happens from time to time.

The Man With The Golden Gun (1974). Pretty low-key for a Bond outing. Bond bangs his requisite three women. Christopher Lee is great.

Ok Bond flick, but I always thought the theme song lyrics were terrible. Pedestrian song writing at the least.

Thunderball (Tom Jones) was my favourite Bond theme song until it was surpassed by Casino Royale (Chris Cornell).

Live and Let Die is my fave. I also love You Only Live Twice. I love the Goldfinger theme merely because of Shirley Bassey's incredible voice.

I like live and let die a lot, but nothing beats the James Bond theme

Orphan Train, about New York orphans who were taken out of the city to be adopted by families in the midwest. Made for TV in 1979, I saw this way back when and just wanted to see if it held up. Yeah, it mostly does; like an extended episode of Little House on the Prairie.

I swear to god, I have heard that before.
I had it backward in my head, tho; I thought it was some kind of Weird Al type parody.

Ip-man 4 (Netflix). Pure awesomeness. Better than any Rocky movie. Plus it takes place in 60's SF Chinatown and features more Bruce Lee.

Sneakers (1992).

We've probably all seen it, so a plot synopsis is pointless. I remember enjoying it a lot more when I saw it in the theatre. It's not that it's bad, because it's not, but it just seems like it could have been a little better. The comedy doesn't quite hit the mark, and the drama is a little less than dramatic. I'm not sorry I watched it, and will watch it again sometime.

I really liked Sneakers, but I agree, it had more potential than was realized - particularly with that cast. What was there was really good, though. The McGuffin of the crypto box aside, there was a lot of really great scenes in there - like using audio cues to retrace a path, recreating a voice prompt security system by having someone speak words, etc.

the current war (2017)

a bunch of actors portray the rivalry between thomas edison and george westinghouse over the ac/dc electrical standard in the 19th century

quite interesting, especially for a history geek, but a bit lacking story-wise

however very prettily made with nice music and a dreamy mood

i enjoyed it

just finished watching restrepo (2010), a documentary from the amazing combat journalist sebastian junger

quite intense in a lot of ways ... i need to process it

one thought that occurs to me is how utterly goddamned futile it all seems

The Owners. At best, it was ok. I expected more and wasnt fond of the ending but most people woiuld like the end. Don't waste your money on a rental. Wait and watch it for free.

I watched "The Martian" this morning. It was surprisingly good, though the ending was a bit strained. It also failed to address the perchlorate problem with Martian soil, but all said, I enjoyed it. :up:

I just wrapped up a Blade Runner (Final Cut) + Blade Runner 2049 double feature. I still love the first movie, with its ambiguity, but 2049 was a pretty solid follow-up.

My only complaint is that in the first film, it is quite possible that the only real bad guy is the protagonist. In the second movie, the villain is much more clear cut. Still, I like them both.

I watched The King Of Staten Island tonite. I have to say it was a really good movie, and i came out of it with a different opinion of Pete Davidson. I highly recommend it.

6 underground on netflix

not a bad action movie, very notable for all the insane human waste they do to human bodies

for instance in a high-speed car chase through a crowded city, a ton of innocent people get stick fiddled up

worth watching for that aspect, thinks i

The Other Lamb on Hulu. Girl starts to question the cult she was born into. Didn't delve too deeply into the beliefs or how they got there, just a patriarchal polygamist family cell and its dynamics. A decent watch.
