The Last Days of Patton (1986 TVM) YouTube Directed by Delbert Mann ('Marty', 'Separate Tables'). Cinematography by Dennis C. Lewiston ('The Squeeze', 'Night Games'). Editing by Bill Blunden ('The Night Visitor', 'The Chain').

Not the budget, not the accolades of its predecessor, but contains memorable performances by George C. Scott and Eva Marie Saint (Mrs. Beatrice Patton). Scott's close friend Murray Hamilton provided strong support, and would succumb to lung cancer shortly after.

Home for the Holidays (1995) - Jodie Foster directs. Holly Hunter, Robert Downey Jr., Anne Bancroft, Dylan McDermott, Geraldine Chaplin, Steve Guttenberg, Claire Danes, Cynthia Stevenson and Charles Durning.


Late watching this year, found HD version on Hulu+ last night. One of the few Thanksgiving comedy-drama themed movies available, adapted from a 1990 short story by Chris Radant by screenwriter W. D. Richter. An over-the-top story of a dysfunctional family at their annual holiday gathering. Yet in spite of this there are many kernels of family human behavior exhibited that we may be all familiar with. Great cast and performances by Hunter, Bancroft, Durning and Downey. Cinematography by Lajos Koltai. Blu-ray released in October 2017.

The last two movies I watched were Pride & Prejudice & Zombies on Blu-ray, and Captain American: The Winter Soldier on DVD.

Between the two, I liked PPZ the best.

The Winter Soldier wasn't too bad though for a superhero flick. I have not seen all the MCU movies preceding this. It might be useful though to watch the first Captain America and Avengers movies for the context. There is alot of gun violence in this btw. So it's probably not suitable for younger/less mature viewers. Black Widow and Nick Fury of SHIELD are also featured in this.

This was my second viewing of PPZ (first was streamed free w/ads on Crackle). And first viewing of The Winter Soldier.

Also finally watched the animated movie Tangled on DVD. (My internet service has been out for awhile, so I'm playing a little catch-up here.) This felt a little like "been there, done that" to me, after watching other similar movies. But it was not bad. And to be fair, some of the other similar movies, such as Brave and Frozen, were made after this.

Ryan's Daughter (1970) Cable TV Directed by David Lean ('Brief Encounter', 'Oliver Twist', 'Summertime', 'The Bridge on the River Kwai', 'Lawrence of Arabia', 'Doctor Zhivago', 'A Passage to India'). Cinematography by Freddie Young ('Goodbye, Mr. Chips', 'The Inn of the Sixth Happiness', 'Lawrence of Arabia', 'Doctor Zhivago', 'You Only Live Twice', 'Nicholas and Alexandra'). Editing by Norman Savage ('Doctor Zhivago', 'The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie').

The film was savaged by critics. Trevor Howard remarked that it's too long for a trifle romance. Robert Mitchum complained about weather, "Ireland makes the rain a national monument. I think it's deliberate. They do it so they can make the tourist season last twelve months a year."

With all its faults, I still like the 3 hours 26 minutes of David Lean direction and Freddie Young cinematography. They even bring a few Fellini moments.

Critics would hate anything, 3 hrs and 26 min. long.

I saw 'Jack Reacher' on TNT via ATT TV Now. Picture quality was good, TNT has good video quality if your cable system doesn't overly compress it. Directed by and adapted for the screen by Christopher McQuarrie, it's easy to see why Tom Cruise likes this guy. He's good at his craft. Cruise's character in this is a little different than his character in the Mission Impossible series. Imagine if Clint Eastwood's man with no name was an ex-military investigator. Worth the watch.

Watched Hobbs and Shaw again last night, and man, this movie has reference quality video and audio! I just had my projector calibrated recently and switched out screens and this movie really shines in my HT now! Also, the audio is top notch and a lot of fun!

It is on the longish side, esp. compared to most movies nowadays. The movie was beautifully lensed though in 65mm Super Panavision 70. I had the 2-disc DVD for awhile (which didn't really do the large format cinematography justice). And would love to see a nice HD or UHD transfer sometime.

Watched 1959's Sleeping Beauty Saturday night. Classic Disney, the kind of thing I grew up with. My favorite, most moving line: "Thou sword of truth, fly swift and sure, that evil die and good endure". The animation is very good, if not quite up to the standards set by the likes of Pinocchio. The movie makes excellent use of the Tchaikovsky ballet score.

Escape From New York (1981) - John Carpenter directs. Kurt Russell, Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Donald Pleasence, Isaac Hayes, Harry Dean Stanton and Adrienne Barbeau.


Science fiction action film. Kurt Russell's breakout movie as tried to leave his Disney image behind. He shows he can do a fine imitation of Clint Eastwood. Great cast. Now a cult classic. In 2017 it was announced that Robert Rodriguez would be directing a reboot of this movie with Carpenter as executive producer. No additional news since then. Blu-ray released in August 2010 with several re-releases since. Lots of interesting trivia when listening to the director's commentary.

Watched streaming on iTunes. Black comedy supernatural horror thriller film and bloody splatter-fest. The first thing this movie may remind you of is Get Out. What happens when one marries into a family satanic cult? Stand-out performance by Samara Weaving (niece to Hugo Weaving) who exhibits great comedic timing and facial expressions. Excellent supporting cast. The film grossed over $57 million against a $6 million budget, and received generally positive reviews from critics. Blu-ray releases December 3, 2019.
This shows up as a suggested movie after I watched Mayhem ($0.99 rental on iTunes at the time). Which was not bad, ok it was bad, but in a good way. I enjoyed it. The Samara Weaving in this as well thus the suggestion.

Me, too. Crazy, since HD/1.85:1 is available for cable networks. bluraydotcom, in addition to saying "no release date", mentions original aspect ratio as 2.20:1.

In that Criterion hasn't jumped on it, maybe there's hope for a Warner Bros. 4K UHD release.

Ad Astra (2019) - James Gray directs. Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler and Donald Sutherland.


Watched streaming on iTunes last night. Ad Astra is Latin for "to the stars". The film is visually impressive with first rate VFX and action set pieces. This movie is basically a one-man show and Pitt does a fine job with his character. A direct comparison to the Heart of Darkness novel by Joseph Conrad is often used by critics and is fairly evident in the storyline. There are many visual cues that reminds one of other sci-fi films like 2001: A Space Odyssey. An excellent score by Max Richter (with contributions from Lorne Balfe) which seemed similar to the score Cliff Martinez did for Solaris. Blu-ray and 4K release on December 17, 2019.

Visually nice, but it was a movie about a man with no emotions. Why should I care about him. Sure he is searching for meaning, I think. Mr Spock has more character than the one Pitt plays. No knock on Mr Pitt, he played it as it was written. Just a boring slog for me. I left the theater very underwhelmed. I guess it is just not the movie for me.

The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing (1973) Cable TV Directed by Richard C. Sarafian ('Run Wild, Run Free', 'Vanishing Point'). Cinematography by Harry Stradling Jr. ('There Was a Crooked Man', 'Little Big Man', 'Fools Parade', '1776', 'The Way We Were', 'Rooster Cogburn', 'Midway' 1976, 'Carny'). Editing by Tom Rolf ('The Hunting Party', 'The Last American Hero', 'Taxi Driver', 'New York, New York', 'The Right Stuff', 'Stakeout', 'Black Rain', 'Jacob's Ladder', 'Heat', 'The Horse Whisperer').

The movie never matches its intriguing title. No surprises, with Sarah Miles once again showing off her two friends.

Spoiler!

Nice! That dang Tarantino... yeah, it does tie in, very loosely, at the end, and you go "Ok, that's how these things are related".

Spoiler!

Watched streaming on iTunes last night. Ad Astra is Latin for "to the stars". The film is visually impressive with first rate VFX and action set pieces. This movie is basically a one-man show and Pitt does a fine job with his character. A direct comparison to the Heart of Darkness novel by Joseph Conrad is often used by critics and is fairly evident in the storyline. There are many visual cues that reminds one of other sci-fi films like 2001: A Space Odyssey. An excellent score by Max Richter (with contributions from Lorne Balfe) which seemed similar to the score Cliff Martinez did for Solaris. Blu-ray and 4K release on December 17, 2019.

AD ASTRA now in my Netflix queue
