Watched Gallipoli (1981)
2.2/5 (amazon 4.5/5, imdb 7.6/10, rotten tomatoes 77%)
Mel Gibson. Two Australian sprinters face the brutal realities of war when they are sent to fight in the Gallipoli campaign in Turkey during World War I.
A quality film with a poignant ending, but it just didn't engage me this watching.
Played The Producers (2005)
1.9/5 (amazon 3.8/5, imdb 6.3/10, rotten tomatoes 51%)
A musical. Matthew Broderick. Mel Brooks. Will Ferrell as Hitler. Gary Beach as Hitler.
"After putting together another Broadway flop, down-on-his-luck producer Max Bialystock teams up with timid accountant Leo Bloom in a get-rich-quick scheme to put on the world's worst show."
A remake of the probably better 1968 Gene Wilder film of the same name, or perhaps a Broadway production.
Opening Weekend: $154,590
Certainly a good effort by all, especially Nathan Lane.
Thought it was an ok buy in a local $5 DVD bin, but I see that amazon is selling it for $3.95.
