You are one lucky SOB !!!

What do you think about that 70th anniv 3 disc Blue Ray edition?  I already have the 2003 "2 Disc Special Edition" that has a great picture  on SD plus Ebert's commentary and piles of other goodies?

I went ahead and pre-ordered it.   I don't own the 2003 special edition.

Beneath the Darkness

To Sir With Love

5 Stars

The basics of this story of an "outsider" teacher who gets assigned to a tough inner city classroom full of unruly teenagers has been been done many times. To Sir with Love is one of the best i've seen. I  have become a very big Sidney Poitier fan.The 60's music and variety of personalities and background stories of the teens added to my enjoyment of this Classic.

To Sir, with Love

Cape Fear

4 Stars

I have not seen the remake with Deniro and Nolte but I don't think it could match the pairing of Peck and Mitchum. You really build up a good "hate" for the excon who threatens the family of the witness who helped put him away for eight years. Very good suspense created by director J. Lee Thompson (The Guns of Navarone).

Cape Fear

Watch the DeNiro and Nolte version if only to see Juliette Lewis practice her budding sexuality on the smarmy DeNiro.

Juliette Lewis is a fucking revelation in that film.

Four stars? . . . Well, okay . . . but only for Mitchum.

Harry in Your Pocket...everyone who loves Seattle or lives near here should be enthralled by all the street scenes circa 1973...they cover almost all of downtown!

The performances are spectacular...and the great thing is the relationships are not ones that ever make it to the screen any more.  

One of the best parts of this flick is Trish Van Devere who I guess is mostly known for being George C. Scott's wife -- but she takes her 4th of the movie by both horns in this film.   She is sort of like Jane Fonda, but more of an actress who has here characteristics...as opposed to the real Jane Fonda, who simply plays "herself" in her own films.

I went looking for more Trish Van Devere films and sadly, Netflix does not have the one I wanted -- "The Last Run".    Gah!   I really just wanted to call that up and watch it...but it's not listed in the filmbase at all!!

Looks good John. Frustrating. Sevorin recs alot of good looking prospects here also which are unavailable to my searches.

 

The German director, Haneke, amazes me while not exactly entertaining me with "The White Ribbon,"Cache" and the fascinating "Bennys' Video." Check out "Lilya 4- ever" for a reality check. Am also watching "Luther" on streaming as they have released a new season. Have been in a "Jeremy Irons" state of mind and just had to watch "Damages" again.

OMG - someone else has actually heard of the 1992 Benny's Video!  My introduction to Michael Haneke movies (my review is the first one on the Netflix movie page). After that one, I have watched every movie of his that Netflix carries. Arno Frisch, the star of Benny's Video went on to star in Haneke's first version of Funny Games 6 years later in 1998.

"The Fuller Brush Girl (1950)Almost like a live action cartoon with all the physical comedy. Not the type of film I usually enjoy but it wasn't terrible. ★★★☆☆"

British Television comedies

From ,Are you being served? To Red Dwarf. From Absolutely Fabulous to Man about the House. Hilarity, British style, subtle, dry, and completely over the top.
