Resuming my Bond marathon again and moved onto 1973's Live and Let Die - the first one with Roger Moore, in New Orleans....

 

couldn't make it past half way.  it was that bad.  i dont know how this franchise continued after that

This started the unnecessary comedic relief. And, aside from scenes with Q, they got away from any real spycraft that the earlier movies had.

Ah..Live and Let Die and introduction of sheriff JW Pepper.    He was so good he got to come back in The Man with the Golden Gun.  Seriously, though I'd play strip poker with Solitaire anytime.

Never was an actress's last name more appropriate.  And best theme music since Goldfinger.

Isn't that James Earl Jones..? I dunno, I'm sure he was young at least at one time in his life.?!

Ahh... And a solid thank you sir...

I guess since I am typing, I might as well mention I'm looking forward to the upcoming Kang The Conqueror (being that I just rewatched Ant-Man...
Also, did anyone ever think of the fact that the misses could live in the tiny city & be married to VonDoom after all that time away from her real life..?

Pump Up The Volume. Samantha Mathis was the perfect art school girlfriend/alternative girl of the early 90s.

Roger Moore was my Bond. I always thought of them as silly movies. Later on as I saw other bond films I realized that some took the character seriously.

The 911’s chase scene in For Your Eyes Only was the greatest thing I had ever seen at that point.

Marnie (1964)

I liked it.  Sean Connery was great, and the creepy, behind the scenes, story about Hitchcock abusing Tippi the actress offscreen while Connery was abusing her onscreen ads a bit of...creepiness.  Above average Hitchcock for someone who still hasn't warmed to Hitchcock.

African Treasure (1954). Bomba the Jungle Boy has to save a Mexican Hottie’s dad from unscrupulous diamond thieves. According to IMDB there were a dozen Bomba movies starting the kid who played Boy in the old Tarzan movies. It’s exactly like Tarzan even down to the chimp sidekick. Reminded me of the old movies that used to play on one of the San Antonio stations on Saturday afternoons.

Casino Royale (2006).  Chock full pf plot holes, and the poker scenes are abhorrent.  But everything else is great.  Not as good as Skyfall or 2-3 of Connery's films, but great just the same.

Papillon-Why do remakes of great movies? God this shitty was shitty.

It's on my "I refuse to watch" list. The Magnificent Seven remake is on it, too. There's a line I just won't cross.

Broken Blossoms (1919)

D.W. Griffith flick.  Had some cool names for bands (The Jackies/Yellow Man) and the lead villain was the great Donald Crisp, the world's best Dad (National Velvet/How Green Was My Valley).  Guy had a very long and interesting life.  

But no. Film school stuff..

His last movie was Spencer's Mountain in the early 60's.

You want me to strike it?


People don’t like to have fire poked, poked in their noses.

My ranking:
1. Best In Show


2. Waiting for Guffman
3. A Mighty Wind (But I freaking love the soundtrack, Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara are always magic together).


4. For Your Consideration

Haven’t seen Spinal Tap in so long, not sure where to put that one.

Christopher Guest, Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, and Michael McKean are a collective gift from the Comedy Gods. 

Waiting for Guffman is a Top 5 greatest comedy of all time, fight me.

The Bookshop - A widower moves to a small town in England and wants to open a bookshop.  Local rich lady wants the building for the bookshop to be an arts center.  This movie scratches the surface on a lot of themes, but doesn't do a deep dive on any of them.  It's pleasant enough, but doesn't really hit the homerun that it seems like it should (or could) be delivering.

Their Finest (2016) Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighly. Set in the early days of the London Blitz the Propaganda Ministry needs a film to lift British spirits. Arterton is hired to write "the slop" (female dialogue). Well made period flick.

Cave of the Yellow Dog (2005).  Need to lower your BP by 20 or 30 top and bottom?  Sit back and drink in this beautiful, simple tale, showing how for a family of young Mongolian nomads, life has changed very little in hundreds of years.  

And btw, the Chinese restaurant scene in Waiting for Guffman is one of the most spit-out-whatever-is-in-your-mouth funny scenes ever.  Thank you, Christopher Guest and ensemble, for the whole yuckumentsry series.  You hear that? "That whole thing."

If you're familiar with the work of Miranda July this mines the same vein but there is no pooping back and forth.  Great performances from Wood, Jenkins, and Rodriguez.  Worth seeing. 

I liked her first "big movie". Haven't really followed up.
