BlackPanther_.jpgMovies you've seen lately

It was as good as the hype.  It is my top MCEU movie, tied with Winter Soldier.  What both of those have in common is that they are not Superhero movies, they're just good movies.  I'd say that WS is a movie that heralds back to the Espionage/Cold War type movies.  Black Panther is more of an intrigue type movie.

Definitely recommended.

Fifty Shades Freed.... yep. Took my wife on Valentine's Day. She liked it and that's all that matters.  https://www.imdb.com...477536/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Please Stand By (58% on Rotten Tomatoes as of posting.)

Saw it on Vudu when we were looking for a movie to rent.  It said "In Theatres" and it appears to be, though in very small distribution as an indie film.

It was a great movie, and had a lot to which I could relate.  Recommended.

Leaning Into the Wind: Andy Goldsworthy
Documentary about the artist. Known for working out´ there 'in nature', although as he says here, he now see everything as 'nature'.

if you're not familiar with Goldsworthy's work, here from an image search:

if you think you'll actually look at the film, I'd recommend *not* looking at the trailer. I saw this in the cinema and was blown away by some of the ideas and images -- would have been less powerful if I had known what's coming (but then that's my favourite way to see a movie anyways). He came across as a very likeable guy, very down to earth, no BS (there's a lot of that in the art world). Some scenes in the film had me laughing out loud -- I'll just say he has some pretty bizarre ideas.

Babette's Feast (1987)
I missed the beginning, and dont necessarily agree with some of the ideas presented, but this (still) a very good film.
(The main actress Stéphane Audran died in March.)

The Ten Commandments (1956)
was surprised how good most of this epic about Moses was. They were going mad with the colour too. (There's a restored version on archive.org )

Westward the Women (1951)
'Cowboy'. Again missed the beginning; well acted, gripping, I enjoyed it.

Thanks for the link to the restored version of The Ten Commandments. They did a really nice job remastering it; it looked pretty good in HD, considering how old it is. :Thmbsup:

The Thinning

There's no Rotten Tomatoes score- presumably because it's a Youtube Red production.  My daughter just found out that we have Youtube Red because of the Google Music subscription, and suggested that we watch this.  I had my doubts - Logan Paul of Youtube fame plays one of the main characters.  With him in it, I was skeptical - after all the poster boy for bad youtubers that seemingly doesn't have reverence for nor take any thing seriously.  But it's actually a pretty serious thriller, and better than it has any right to be. I recommend it, strangely enough.

Just watched Quatermass and the Pit - <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2HSbfeXeBs>
It was a 1958/59 B&W BBC TV serialisation in 6 parts -stuck together end-to-end in this YouTube video (3hrs 27mins.).
The sound synchronisation goes off a bit in the last couple of parts, but not so as you'd fail to get the plot.
It's rather good SF and ties together science, fiction, archaeology, ghosts, devils, poltergeists, aliens, black magic, telekinesis, bad acting, over-acting, the works. The end culminates in the commencement of a rapidly-spreading contagious mass racial purging (killing) of all those people in London and beyond who don't think the same and who use irony in their jokes. Well, iron comes into it, at any rate.

I saw this years ago in an old colour movie remake: Quatermass and the Pit (1967)
 - but I think the old BBC series might have been a bit better!    :Thmbsup:

Well worth a watch:
