The Princess Bride

Watched this one with the kids on Saturday night. Long time favorite here.

Our story goes that when Buttercup, the betrothed to Prince Humperdinck is kidnapped by a Sicilian "genius," a Spanish master swordsman, and a giant, she is pursued by the mysterious, black-clad Dread Pirate Roberts. But who is Roberts, and what is his connection to Buttercup? Hijinks (and true love) ensue.

I don't know how much I need to talk about this film, which is beloved by nearly all of my generation and remains a timeless classic which appeals to just about all viewers. Classic moments abound in this film -- the duel between Westley and Inigo, the duel of wits, the Pit of Despair, the wedding, Miracle Max, and more. Adventure, comedy, romance, and heart all in equal measures, with an amazing cast from top to bottom. As a wrestling fan, I always loved seeing Andre the Giant playing the kind hearted Fezzik, and still do.

The framing sequence with Peter Falk and Fred Savage is a lot of fun as well, even if you (purposefully) forget about it from time to time.

Legit classic.

Passengers (2016)

Watched with my wife via Netflix DVD on Saturday night.

Our story goes that on a 120 year interstellar trip to a colonial world, passenger Jim wakes up about 90 years too early, and is the only person awake on a ship of more than 5000. He soon begins to face the reality of his situation, and begins to consider drastic courses of action -- all of which have extremely negative consequences -- including waking up another passenger, a journalist named Aurora. Hijinks ensue.

This is something of a rarity out of Hollywood in the modern era -- a legitimate science fiction film which is based on character instead of action. With a very small cast and a very impressive production design, the weight of the story and the actions of those involved is what drives the film. I often joke that when a filmmaker says "My film is about people and the choices they make," that is code for "phoned-in crap," but here that statement is accurate.

The two leads -- Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence -- have good chemistry together and are both believable in their roles. Their relationship with each other plays out well, and the actions of each are understandable. Jim's solitude and loneliness are expressed well, and the awful decisions he is faced with and forced to make present a moral quandary for viewers which I felt was refreshing for this type of film. There are no real easy answers in this film. Even the ending raises additional questions which the film does not answer, seemingly leaving it to the viewer to make their own judgement.

Worth watching. Not perfect, but a thoughtful film especially for a mainstream Hollywood release.

HELL TO ETERNITY (1960)

Overall movie quality

Entertainment value


I loved this movie when I was a kid. It still has sentimental value even though it is flawed.

Jeffrey Hunter plays Guy Gabaldon, a real-life World War II hero who could speak Japanese and was able to convince over 1,000 Japanese soldiers and civilians to surrender.

The movie is divided into 3 distinct segments:

* Gabaldon's boyhood and teenage years when he was taken in by a Japanese family (George Takei appears in these scenes)

* His pre-combat days in marine boot camp and shortly after

* His combat days on the island of Saipan

The movie's worst sequence is when Gabaldon and his two buddies (played by David Janssen and Vic Damone) have a wild drinking party with three women. David Janssen's portrayal of a drunk is so far over the top that he ruins the entire sequence.

Many of the Saipan scenes are also poorly done. It seems like neither the Americans nor the Japanese have any knowledge of perimeter security as they usually just walk right up beside each other. Gabaldon walks up to the Japanese general's door, goes inside and captures him with almost no opposition.

Despite its flaws, it's a fairly enjoyable movie (although, not nearly as enjoyable as when I was around 8 or 10 years old).

Co-starring John Larch

Directed by Phil Karlson

THE DUCHESS AND THE DIRTWATER FOX (1976)

Overall movie quality

Entertainment value


I saw this in the theater when I was 12 years old in the midst of some pretty active years for George Segal's acting career. I thought it was very funny when I was 12. Not nearly as funny 4 decades later.

This is one of those movies that strives to get a lot of mileage out of the same jokes . . . over and over. I'm not saying it doesn't have some funny parts . . . it does. But for the most part it's the kind of humor you'd find in a sub-par TV series.

Goldie Hawn and George Segal have decent chemistry, but it doesn't quite carry them through the entire 103 minutes of this movie. 90 minutes or so would have been sufficient.

Tip: Fast forward when Bobby Vinton's song "Lemon Drops, Lollipops and Sunbeams" starts playing on the soundtrack.

Co-starring Thayer David and Conrad Janis

THE VAMPIRES' NIGHT ORGY (1973)

Overall movie quality

Entertainment value


There were a LOT of European vampire movies in the 1960s and 70s. This is one of them.

The story involves a group of people on a bus who must spend the night in a seemingly deserted village after the bus driver dies. Alas, the village is not deserted . . . it's full of vampires who show up to slaughter most of the cast.

I think this movie has some good cinematography. Unfortunately, I can't be sure about that because the DVD from Sinema Diable is a bit dark and soft-looking. It is in a nice, ultra widescreen format though.

Whenever I refer to Nolan as the most overrated director, this is one of the first movies that comes up to defend him. As I haven't seen it probably since it came out I couldn't really respond to that, so I've been wanting to give it another go. It's very strange watching a movie that you don't remember any of the details of but all of the twists. And watching the movie knowing all of the twists, I was surprised how telegraphed they all were. I almost can't believe that so many people (I believe myself included) were unable to see them coming.

That said that's also something I really have to give Nolan credit for; the movie was very intricately structured and carefully put together to make sure that everything was foreshadowed and made perfect sense. Technically and structurally this is a very well made movie. But I just didn't really enjoy the movie. It really felt cold and over-engineered to me.

I guess this is my problem with Nolan in general, once you get past how clever the movie is, there's not much else there. It's nominally a movie about obsession, but I feel like it failed to really evoke that feeling at all. In fact it failed to evoke any kind of feeling. Visually it was competent but not particularly interesting or unique. In general I think I could summarize the movie that way, it was very well made in all sorts of technical ways but it never did anything to really distinguish itself. In a lot of ways the best word I can think of to describe it is "workmanlike" as harsh as that is.

If you've never seen it, it's probably worth seeing once if you're into movies with twists, and maybe even a second time if you're the type who enjoys seeing how everything was carefully constructed and appreciate the foreshadowing, but if you want a movie that does anything either visually stylish or emotionally compelling look elsewhere. I do respect Nolan for his ability to create such an intricate plot with such success, which is why I rate this as highly as I do, but I'm in no rush to watch this one again.

There's not much to say about this one. It's pretty dumb, unfortunately a fair amount more dumb than it realizes, but it has some entertaining CGI giant monster fights.

I think it really shoots itself in the foot by trying to ground itself in science as that makes all of the less plausible parts much harder to buy. A lot of times things happen that make no physical sense, and in a movie like this I shouldn't care at all. But because they worked so hard setting things up with a scientific sounding premise all of the stuff that made absolutely no sense just stuck out that much more.

But lets be honest, you're here for giant mutated CGI animals to destroy skyscrapers and fight each other, and the movie does deliver on that front, if less frequently and later than it should. Probably you're best off just finding the exciting action scenes on youtube or something. The Rock does his best to save the other parts with his natural charisma, and he does an admirable job at this. Overall it's a fine distraction but it's certainly not winning any awards anytime soon.

It's just such a shame that this movie takes itself and its premise so seriously. If they got someone who was aware of how patently ridiculous the source material was to make this movie it could have been amazing.

My local cinema (www.riotheatre.ca) has screenings of classic movies on a regular basis.

I'd never seen Dr. Strangelove on the big screen, and it was really nice to see some of the great cinematography skills Kubrick used here.

A classic for sure.

I liked the first Sicario movie and the trailers for the sequel looked interesting so I went to the cinema on a hot summer evening to return to the Mexican desert and watch Brolin and del Torro duke it out with the evil drug cartels.

The movie opens with a suicide bombing in a supermarket located in Kansas City. Tracking down the terrorists, the US government with the help of federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) finds out that the Mexican drug cartels are behind the smuggling of Islamic terrorist to the US. To stop this they allow Graver to use extreme measures to combat the cartels. The department of defense comments that it's easier to defeat the cartels should they go back to fight each other. (which means to undo what Graver accomplished in the first movie..) Graver agrees and decide that the best course of action is to kidnap Isabela Reyes (Isabela Moner), the youngest daughter of the biggest cartel leader. To fight this war Graver assembles a highly trained squad, get's the best equipment and he re-teams with the hard as nails mysterious assassin Alejandro Gillick (Benicio del Toro).


The first movie was great but it had the issue that it shifted with the main protagonist from Emily Blunt in the first half to Benicio del Toro for the second with Josh Brolin as supporting cast for both. Since the story of Emily Blunt's character was closed in Sicario, the sequel can focus completely on del Toro and Brolin (Emily Blunt does not return) and it makes it a better movie then the first one for that fact. Josh Brolin was really great in this movie, he is a hard as nails agent that does what he finds necessary to complete the mission.
Benicio del Toro was again excellent in his role as the mysterious Alejandro Gillick. His hard as nails character is shown in full display but he also get's very human in the third act. (which I will not spoil for you) I enjoyed seeing Jeffrey Donovan return as Steve Forsin and I was surprised by the young actress who played the daughter of the drug cartel boss. She starts as a spoiled kid but the events that follow have an bad effect on her and she does a good job in acting that out.

The shift from smuggling drugs in the original to smuggling immigrants is very interesting and feels very real because it links to modern day problems. The first movie had a policing meets military element in it but the police is completely removed from the sequel. This can almost be classified as a war movie. The music in the movie is great and helps tell the dark tale that this movie is. The shots of the endless Mexican desert also add to this feeling. Very little room for heartwarming moments.

I highly recommend this movie if you enjoyed the first movie and like seeing movies about difficult missions with shady rules and mysterious characters. But don't expect much happy moments, this is a dark tale.

I ended July rewatching the Ghostbusters movies - the 1984 original is my all-time favorite movie, and the 1989 sequel...I loved it as a kid, but not so much now. It has its moments.

So I just watched the 2016 all-female Ghostbusters for the first time, and enjoyed it. Certainly it's not as good as the original, but it also wasn't bad. I enjoyed watching how they paralleled the original plot arc without ever actually "crossing the streams", as it were. It was also fun seeing most of the original cast pop up at various places, and I thought the new group did well creating their own characters. Sorry this movie got so assaulted by the mysoginists of the world before ever seeing a frame, and that the critics didn't like it either. It had its problems, but I thought that overall it was fun, and I would've liked to see what they did with a sequel.

Probably the most disturbing movie I've ever seen because it's based on a true story. The gist: a guy prank calls a fast food restaurant and impersonates a cop. People do his evil bidding for hours without questioning his authority.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

+Interesting story, based on real events.

+The lead actors are amazing. The supporting cast, not so much.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

-Really disturbing.

-Some amatuerish acting (but not by the leads who are great).

THE GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN (1942)

Overall movie quality

Entertainment value


This is one of the lesser Universal horror movies and the first of the Frankenstein series without Boris Karloff. Lon Chaney, Jr. is pretty bland as the monster and is overshadowed by Bela Lugosi as Ygor (who somehow survived being hanged and shot in the previous movie).

Cedric Hardwicke plays one of Dr. Frankenstein's sons and Lionel Atwill is the evil Dr. Bohmer. Evelyn Ankers is wasted in a throw away role as Hardwicke's daughter. And it's strange to see a young Ralph Bellamy as the hero.

The movie gets pretty ridiculous when they transplant Ygor's brain in the monster's head (and Chaney starts speaking with Lugosi's voice).

In an economical move, a few scenes from this movie later showed up in HOUSE OF DRACULA.

Directed by Erle C. Kenton

From my DVD collection (part of the Universal/Frankenstein boxed set).

Beau Geste (1939)



Watched on Amazon Prime.

This is the Gary Cooper - Ray Milland - Robert Preston version. Fort Zinderneuf makes no sense (who builds a fort beneath scalable palms?), the Tuaregs make no sense (repeatedly “storm” a fort without any attempt to scale the walls?), the French make no sense (for God’s sake, DUCK!), the romance is pasted on (but this is the same time that MGM was diluting Marx Brothers with similar nonsense), the dialog is over the top, most of the characters are types instead of people, but ... but ... it’s a ripping good story (even with the maguffin), and the main actors (Cooper/Milland/Donlevy) are fully committed. Very entertaining.

Interesting triviatum: the adolescent actor playing the young Beau Geste looked very, very familiar. It wasn’t until the credits rolled that I saw it was Donald O’Connor.

I rarely watch movies, but I did watch a movie just a couple of days ago.

Ready Player One

I heard some mixed things about it, but I figured it could be an enjoyable movie regardless. I also hadn't read the book, so I wouldn't be complaining about how not like the book it is the whole time.

Overall it was an enjoyable movie with lots of great video game and pop culture references. The part that made me laugh the most was how Steven Spielberg seems to have no idea how VR works. Every time it showed people dying next to each other in VR, only to show their VR stands turning red right next to each other in real life, I groaned a bit, then laughed. I don't know how these guys managed to run all around in a virtual world, yet were still always right next to the dude who was in the non-movable VR stand in real life.

Incredibles 2

I had a second chance to see this Incredible movie with my neighbour and his son, and this time I had more of an opportunity to take in the look of the movie and the level of detail in the animation. Without changing the feel of the Incredibles' universe, they have once again pushed the boundaries of what is possible with animation. The film looks amazing and the detail in the characters, particularly the hair, is remarkable.

Once again the story thrilled and entertained me, and it made me laugh and cry, often simultaneously. With Incredibles 2, Brad Bird and Pixar do so much, so right... definitely a worthy sequel.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Continuing my catch up of the Mission Impossible franchise, it was the turn of 2015's Rogue Nation, directed by Chris McQuarrie, who is mostly noted for his writing credits of other Tom Cruise movies (Edge of Tomorrow; The Mummy and Jack Reacher) as well as 1995's The Usual Suspects... and, in a break from tradition, goes on to write and direct the next Mission Impossible movie.

There are a number of returning team members, including Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames and Jeremy Renner, and we are introduced to a few new characters such as Rebecca Ferguson's Isla Faust and Alec Baldwin's CIA director Alan Hunley. Once again the IMF is disavowed/disbanded etc. so that it is Cruise's Ethan Hunt against the world, with a little help from his friends... only this time, the CIA are also after him, while he attempts to track down the elusive Syndicate.

Once again there are some fantastic action sequences, which are interspersed with some character development and a few twists along the way... the infamous masks are used again, but I felt it was not overdone this time, like it was in the 2nd and 3rd instalments.

Gone is a lot of the humour that Brad Bird introduced into Ghost Protocol, making this a more serious action spy thriller movie.. though that isn't necessarily a bad thing... and there is still an element of self awareness that is used to poke fun at some MI tropes.

Overall this is a very good entry in the franchise... slightly below Ghost Protocol, but above all others aside from the original.

A Fistful of Dollars (1964)


Turner Movie Classics ran a Clint Eastwood retrospective last weekend, and I was able to catch Sergio Leone's first chapter of his "Man With No Name" trilogy before stepping out for the afternoon (and the Genghis Khan exhibit at the nearby Ronald Reagan Library).

An early adaptation of Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo, its Western theme made the story more accessible to American movie-goers. While sadly number three in my personal rankings of the trilogy, it's still nothing to be ashamed of, as they all remain among my all-time personal favorites.

Where Eagles Dare (1968)


The box office success of this film made Clint Eastwood more than just a spaghetti western hero, but an international movie superstar.

I put the DVR to work while TCM was showing movies I like while I was out. It had been a while since I saw this World War II-themed suspense film written by Alistair MacLean.

I guess I'm becoming a more discerning film watcher, as I was less entertained from this movie than I recall being in the past. Perhaps it stretched a bit long. Possibly Richard Burton's "I've got a secret" schtick now seems overplayed and makes his character appear a tad one-dimensional. Maybe I'm looking at it more as a film instead of "something WWII," making it somewhat less cool.

It'll probably be a while before I'm jonesing to see this one again.


On a side note, watching the movie again flipped a switch for me. The title score to this movie was adapted by Hong Kong's Shaw Brothers' Studio and used in several of their martial arts films in the '70s (they notoriously sampled many movie scores from the west). It is the foundation to the epic title score of one of SB's most successful films, The Brave Archer (1977):

I first heard about The Name of the Rose when I played a board game called Mystery of the Abbey that bears some similarities to Clue, but was all about finding out which monk committed murder in their abbey. That’s when someone mentioned to me that there was a book and subsequent film about the exact same topic. I was instantly fascinated, and that interest only increased when I found out Sean Connery was the star. The idea of a murder being perpetrated in a holy place is an interesting concept, and having it investigated by a monk as well makes it even more intriguing. I always like murder mysteries, but when they are set in this kind of environment it ratchets up the tension because of how close-knit and insular their little society becomes.

The Name of the Rose is at its best when it allows Sean Connery and Christian Slater to be detectives. Their relationship is a good one, because that master-apprentice connection makes it so Connery has to vocalize to Slater what he’s thinking, and at the same time that tells us. There was plenty of suspicion thrown around in the film, and I never felt like the identity of the culprit was obvious. It helped that so many of the monks seemed insane, disgusting, or at least unpleasant. That made it so you could never get comfortable in this location, and it was easy to suspect everyone. The final reveal of why the crimes were committed was crazy, and didn’t quite live up to the severity of the murders, but at least I didn’t see it coming.

I had some big problems with certain subplots that were clumsily tacked on to the film. In particular the romance/lust story between a peasant woman and some of the characters was an awkward distraction that I found annoying. Knowing how little it played into the plot makes me wish I had just skipped the whole thing. I think it was supposed to add some extra tension in the conclusion, but because I was not at all invested in that character it was pointless to me. There were a few other details that felt like they either needed to be fleshed out more or jettisoned from the script. I think all this extra nonsense was added to deflect suspicion from the real murderer, but I’m not sure it was needed. I still think there’s a kernel of a good idea in The Name of the Rose, but it didn’t come together into a film that lived up to that potential for me.

The Hunt
(2012) =

If you know the premise of The Hunt, you probably know everything to expect out of it. I found that the whole story played out exactly as I anticipated based on the plot synopsis I read years ago. That’s not a bad thing, because this might be the most raw and realistic presentation possible for the storyline, and I was still on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen in the end. The film is powerful, and at times it is hard to watch because it feels like we are seeing a good man tortured for two hours. The story is timely considering things that have happened over the last few years, and it forces us to look at how we handle these difficult situations in order to get the truth, because one simple lie can ruin someone’s life.

Mads Mikkelsen is perfect in The Hunt. Every emotion is evident through the subtleties of his expression, and he goes through a massive range of them. He starts off as this charming man who is a friend to everyone, and we are forced to witness his decline into a broken and empty husk of a man. They also surround him with an excellent supporting cast, and each has a role to play. The variety of people with different reactions to the central conflict are invaluable, so that we could see how the world at large reacts to it just by interacting with the protagonist’s small group of friends. (I’m trying to be careful to not talk about the details of the inciting incident, because I think people should see this movie and might enjoy it more if they can avoid spoilers.)

The Hunt is not an easy movie to sit through, so I won’t be returning to it often. However, while watching I was utterly enthralled, and it stuck with me for days after. More than anything I applaud this film for what it did not do. There were several times when I was watching a scene and I thought “Oh no, don’t become THAT movie,” and sure enough they avoided the trope I feared. The ending was so brilliant, that I wanted to stand up and applaud while alone in the living room. The authenticity of the story was impressive, and in every way this felt like something that could really happen, or even like it was based on a true story. I was thoroughly impressed by The Hunt, and it will be added to my list of standard recommendations for others.

In the last few weeks, I've watched a trio of movies dealing with androids, A.I., and maybe aliens as their central subject.

Bladerunner 2049: I'd been avoiding this one, out of my concern that it might be the Godfather III of the original, which I certainly didn't want for my single most favoritest movie of all time. It turns out that my fears, conditioned though they were by so many Hollywood second-chapter catastrophes, were misplaced. It's a beautiful, bittersweet valentine to the original. Its meditations on the essential values we all want or possess to one degree or another -- identity, love, purpose, and even ambition -- and how we find them, were enough to move someone nameless to tears. It is even more blunt in dealing with the core proposition -- that slavery is not merely evil, but corrosive. Visually, it lives up to the spectacle of the original; its soundtrack measures up to Vangelis', another welcome surprise in how it did so. Living up to the greatest science fiction movie of the 20th century was no easy feat; this was the unexpected sequel it deserved.

Extinction: Not the worst possible use of 90 minutes, but it feels like what Hollywood would do to soften a Black Mirror plot and expand it to "movie" length -- 'splosions, Mr. Rico, zillions of 'em! The twist is executed well enough, but basically it's a shooter with a mechanically perfunctory, saccharine conclusion wrapped around it.

Ex Machina: Speaking of Black Mirror-style conceits, this was similarly entertaining in its claustrophbic treatment of the stakes and the implications of A.I. Expectations, identification with and anthropomorphizing something that is essentially alien? Do so at your own risk. Brilliantly executed with a four-person cast (essentially just three), where nobody is being entirely honest.

Your Name
(2016) =

Your Name is one of the most beautiful and powerful animated films I’ve ever seen. It is built on a fantastical premise of two young people who are complete strangers and yet they swap bodies on certain days. I love this kind of magical realism in films, and just like the best ones, they felt no need to explain how it was working. This was just a reality of their lives that they learned to accept. I couldn’t get enough of these early scenes where they were learning to adapt to the situation and using whatever methods they had available to try and communicate with one another. It was a fascinating premise that could have served as the entire plot without anything else added, but then they threw another layer of complexity on top of that and it just made things that much more intriguing.

Without going into too much detail this was kind of a magical time travel movie, and whenever you mess with time it can lead to some unintended plot holes. I was worried that they would get bogged down in the world of paradox, and trying to justify the logic of what was happening, but Your Name steered clear of that kind of confusion. It helped that this wasn’t exactly a scientific phenomenon, so I never felt it was necessary to scrutinize the details too closely. The way they presented this relationship between two characters that could never be face-to-face was amazing. I felt a connection and a bond between them, and some of those climactic moments were shown with perfect visuals to enhance the emotion of a moment where two people were together but separate at the same time.

It’s kind of impossible for me to talk about Your Name without going further into the artistic style of the animation. This film reminded me why I loved and sometimes miss classic two-dimensional animation. It is beautiful to look at and feels like every frame is a work of art. They did a superb job of creating distinct faces and locations, so I could tell at a glance where we were in any given scene, which was vital when the movie bounces back and forth between two “worlds.” All the elements came together in Your Name to make one of the most stunning animated films I’ve ever seen (and my favorite anime film by far.) I was brought to the brink of tears more than once while watching Your Name and the conclusion left me with the biggest smile on my face for the rest of the day.

I really enjoyed this movie. It's not quite like anything else I've ever seen. There are some nice giant monster movie moments and a bit of comedy but ultimately it's using the kaiju premise as a jumping off point for an interesting character study. I'll admit that I'm a sucker for a weird premise, especially when it's used in this way to put a focus on the human element. And I think it really works well here.

And like Ben says about his body-swapping movie above, I'm really glad they didn't feel the need to go into detail about the mechanics of what's happening in the movie, as that's not at all what it's about.

A great idea and some great acting came together to make a really strong movie. But I have to knock it a bit for not having a fully satisfactory ending, it seemed like it didn't know what to do to wrap things up. But for its uniqueness and the experience I got from watching the movie I strongly recommend this to anyone who's up for something a little different.

A warning to some of the regular users here though, there's a fair chance that you won't particularly like any of the characters and I know that's a deal breaker for some of you.
