Wait was that first one Hitler talking about the VW diesel cheating scandal?

Zinnemann’s 1973 Day of the Jackal is still one of the best slow burn thrillers ever. Zinnemann was special.


#405

Yeah I love From Here to Eternity to bits as well.

Just looking on letterboxd at what I’ve watched recently.

Freaky Friday (original Jody Foster movie) - hadn’t seen it since I was a kid. It’s pretty bad for the most part.
Fifty Shades Freed - hate these movies. I only put it on for the wife. Is Christian a jealous punce in the books too? He really is a whiny little manchild. Their relationship is abusive and weird, not your typical BDSM relationship.
Red Sparrow - Worth it for Jennifer Lawrence naked but the movie is pretty dull.
Baby Driver - A fun movie, but not as great as I’d hoped. Some fun things.
Murder on the Orient Express - I’d started my wife on Agatha Christie BBC movies recently and she really likes them. Ordeal By Innocence, And Then There Were None and Witness for the Prosecution. So I showed her the new Murder on the Orient Express movie. Personally, I think Kenneth Branagh is way too in love with himself but it is well directed.
Lawrence of Arabia - amazing movie, of course. Not much to say beyond that, except you really need to carve out a big chunk of time to watch it. And that it’s absolutely beautiful.

For some reason, the names of the movies aren’t displaying.

Weird. Maybe because I put them in bold and italics, but I can’t see why that would affect it.

Freaky Friday, Fifty Shades Freed, Red Sparrow, Baby Driver, Murder on the Orient Express, Lawrence of Arabia.

Isle of Dogs…just a great movie for kids and adults. Stunning animation.

I watched the first twenty minutes or so, but was put off by how hard the director was trying. I never went back to finish it.
