Oh yeah, Coraline is fantastic. One of the great psychedelic fantasies. Great 3D too, if you can get a version.

Remember, people, to forgive is divine. In other words, it ain't human.

gunpowder milkshake (netflix, 2021)

kind of a bland action flick, though i'm always happy to see karen gillain on screen (she's awesome)

also had to smile that the hot car was a 1980s porsche 944 -- with automatic transmission

Ava (2020)

Similar to Kate (actually this came out first, so it's the other way around)

Action/thriller... John Wick... the same, but different

I liked both Kate and Ava movies, maybe this is a bit better but no by much.

I didn't plan to watch such similar movies so close to each other. That was a coincidence.

Yesterday
Meh.
Probably not worth the 5 minutes of commercials for every ten minutes of movie (I timed it) if it's streaming somewhere.
The most interesting thing is a one second cutaway to Eleanor Rigby's tombstone.

Um, Duke, are you really criticizing THE MOVIE for being interrupted by commercials?

I found "Yesterday" rather entertaining in part because I am such a Beatles fan. I also saw it on HBO so no commercials.

The Wizard of Oz Margaret Hamilton's Wicked Witch of the West is 10X a better villain than Darth Vader. Fight me.

The Last Waltz Our Thanksgiving tradition when cooking. Robbie Robertson is 5X a better villain than Darth Vader.

High Anxiety I like this Mel Brooks movie second only to Young Frankenstein.

And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

Overlord (2018)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4530422/

A small group of American soldiers find horror behind enemy lines on the eve of D-Day.

I didn't even remember why I downloaded this movie, but I had it, so I watched it.

I think it was better to not know anything about it, but if you need a hint

Spoiler

I'm sure the filmmakers of this liked playing Castle Wolfenstein.

Maybe hit the IMDB link and watch the trailer

A bit slow in my opinion, but still 100% Tarantino.

This is NOT a recent movie, but the critique of "Why Superman is more like Moses than the Jesus allegory that Hollywood can't let go of" makes sense to me.

Um, out of how many?
4 stars (so "pretty good")?
5 stars {so "better than average, maybe worth your time")?
10 stars (so "dreck, but not so bad that it could be entertaining for the wrong reason to some")?

Zone 414 (2021)

Cyberpunk

Low budget, the story is not bad, but you can see the rough edges in the filmmaking. You know it's cyberpunk because they tell you there's realistic humanoid robots with advanced AI. Other than that you don't see much technology at all.

IMDB gives it a 4.9/10. I'm more generous and would give it a 5.5

The Matrix Resurrections (HBO-MAX [and theaters])

Awsome, awesome, awesome...the story of Taravati and Chandrashekar continues. Get high, get drunk, get both, and have some munchies handy. It's long.

I have never seen it. In fact, I had figured that the original movie was enough mayhem that I haven't watched that again despite how it and its sequels are almost constantly running during EVERY Christmas Season in the US.

I did as well, even though I fell asleep about 5 minutes after George jumped into the river.

Miracle on 34th Street
I hadn't seen this in years. Great footage of late 1940s NYC. Interesting that a good part of the plot was people's desire to leave the city for Long Island. A very common desire after the war-- even for people living right on Central Park West.

The Velvet Underground Documentary of the band of the same name. Footage of mid 60s NYC and what 20 years of 'white flight' had done. Now a kid from Long Island goes there to enjoy its seediness. Andy Warhol's factory looks cheap, dirty and slipshod. It is a pretty good documentary. I find it funny that while I like both Lou Reed's music and Frank Zappa's, I find both of them to be egomaniacal pretentious dicks, and it is amusing that they were on the same label and hated each other. Also funny that the people in the Velvet Underground circle refer to Frank Zappa and the Mothers as "hippies" when they most certainly were NOT.

Don't Look Up I found this enjoyable. Some critics describe it as heavy handed. Maybe if you take it too seriously. Then again the core subject explored is pretty serious.
Very much liked Jennifer Lawrence's character. Ron Pearlman is kind of a bit character who cracked me up. It has some people comparing it to Dr. Strangelove, but it is nowhere near as great as that.

And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

Sabrina (1954) Not as good as I remembered but I still liked it.
Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) Better than I remembered.
Christmas In Connecticut (1945) My xmas tradition movie.
Mean Girls (2004) Recommended by my staff. Better than I was expecting.
A Rainy Day In New York (2019) Woody Allen on cruise control. Elle fanning and Selena Gomez own their scenes and make the film bearable, but only just.
Billy Bishop Goes To War (1982) Two-man stage musical. Found it on YouTube. A bit obscure but entertaining.
The Midnight Sky (2020) George Clooney races to warn a returning space exploration ship not to return to earth because of the devastation. Not bad.
