Don't know why but it seems a bit boring. I mean everything is amazing but the story so simple. hope to find something more interesting

I've been on a stock market binge since the Gamestop stuff.

The Big Short - Fucking incredible movie
Margin Call - Great tense board room type movie
Trading Places - Classic Eddie Murphy comedy....definitely a movie of its time, some might find it offensive 😂

I had not seen The Killing Fields since it was in general release thirty-seven years ago, so I recorded it a couple of weeks back; viewed it in three sittings: Holy Mother of Cambodia (!)
Now in the winter of my discontent, I was able to more fully appreciate Mike Oldfield's score. And Sam Waterston has moved from New York Times reporter through the ranks of the Manhattan DA's office.

I see I have met a grand tour fan here 🧡🧡

Just saw "Gretel and Hansel" (on Amazon Prime). Loved it, and ROB's score. I went back and looked at some of the reviews, and was kind of shocked at how many people hated it. If you are a fan of A24 type horror, this might be right up your alley. Alice Krige as the witch is phenomenal. Full disclosure: I loved "Hereditary" and "Midsommar".

? Not a movie...I watched a few episodes but ultimately gave up on it. I know a lot of people have liked it though.

Recently saw "The Paper" which I'd seen a long time ago but mostly forgot. Good comedy/drama movie with a star-studded cast including Michael Keaton and Dennis Quaid among others.

I just watched "200 Motels" again, for the first time as a sober adult, as it just showed up on Amazon Prime. FZ is one of my musical patron saints, and to this day I am still a huge fan. That said, I thought this movie was awful! The video to film transfer was ugly and harsh on the eyes, the sound was terrible, and the effects were incredibly dated. Except for the orchestral interludes, and an all too brief guitar solo, the music was pretty lousy, too. George Duke on trombone throughout the entire film!? The social satire was flat and unfunny, and the movie strained way too hard to be provocative. I know Frank could be self indulgent, and I have always defended him doing so, but he cut himself off at the knees every step of the way in this movie.
