Just watched "Mule" With, and by, Clint Eastwood. Really good movie, and a COMPLETE departure from a typical Eastwood character.

The King's Choice (Kongens nei) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4353996/

I decided to watch this film after seeing a YouTube video about the Oscarsborg Fortress and its part in stalling the German invasion of April 1940 (Operation Weserübung).

The heavy cruiser Blücher led the invasion force that was directed to capture Oslo and in doing so also capture the King and government. The Oscarsborg Fortress was ignored by the German invasion force as it was only seen as a training establishment with outdated weaponry, however the Blücher was hit by two 28cm shells and then two torpedoes which ultimately sank her and turned the invasion force around.

A very well made and interesting film.

My ole' farts movie club went to see the new John Wick movie. It was exactly what one goes to these movies to see---wanton, but beautifully choreographed murder and mayhem--with an ending that all but shouted at you that there is going to be at least a John Wick #4.

Halle Berry appeared in this installment so she and Keanu teamed up for a segment of the movie that was superb. She really John Wicked up and trained for months to make it look perfect.





Pure mindless action entertainment.

Cheers

Catch-22 on Hulu, nice scenes of B-25s with plenty of humor, though a lot from the book was cut out, but manages the sliding scale of cynicism.

Catch-22 The 1970’s movie version.
Catch-22 @ IMDb: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065528/

The new series with George Clooney looks like it is going for a more comedy aspect, which DaBBQ seems to confirm with his post, whereas this movie wasn’t really that funny. It has a military setting and I think it’s a good movie that shows the absurdity of many things in life not just those in the military if you look at the picture as a whole and start relating your own life experiences. The older you get the more those absurdities in the movie will be relatable to someone or something you have seen in your lifetime.

Well, most of the comedy aspect were all in the trailers whereas most of the show is pretty dark, Clooney as Scheisskopf was distracting without the backstory in the book.

There's an even mix of comedy, drama, and pathos I thought. Nothing funny about the scene where that gunner dies in Yossarian's arms. And imagine, he's the one who told him to sit there because it would be safe!
Good acting, good cast. Well done CGI airplanes scenes. That's how you do CGI airplanes. Just have them behave like real airplanes and it looks so real you're wondering if they actually got a dozen B-25's together for the movie.
I liked it. I liked the description of life on a 12th Air Force bomber base. I liked the period music. I thought it was really well done. Yoyo is closer to the book's character than the Allen Arkin version. Not so silly, and goofy. More cynical. Irreverent. More of a womanizer.
Well done.

I've not read nor seen "Catch 22". I may put the book and film on my already very long "to do" list.

"The older you get the more those absurdities in the movie will be relatable to someone or something you have seen in your lifetime."

This is an absolutely valid point. I had one guy tell me that when he first read it when he was younger, he couldn't get through it. Then he went into the army, and years later he read it again and it all made sense.
I read a beat up old paperback copy many years ago. I now have a signed first addition. Joseph Heller's signature is there in the lower right hand corner on the second page, in blue ink. It's protected by a thin sheet of tissue paper. The book is beautiful, leather bound with it's pages all edged in gold. It was part of my late Father in Law's collection. I've wanted to sit down and read it, again, but I don't want to handle the #%&*$# thing!

Watched the live "All in the Family" broadcast. Actually, I watched the recording I'd made of it on my DVR (ironic, isn't it?).

Wasn't a big fan of the original and only ever saw a scattered handful of episodes, but you couldn't be a young adult in the 1970's without being exposed to it. Not terribly impressed with this offering. The cast came off as doing bad impressions of O'Connor, Stapleton, Reiner, and Struthers. Wanda Sykes as Louise Jefferson actually seemed very natural, but Jamie Foxx tried WAY too hard to mimic Sherman Hemsley, from a rather stupid looking split-level haircut to bouncing his head around so much he looked like a living bobble-head. The obviously effected movements of everyone but Sykes made the whole thing look more like a high school production than a gathering of good actors with probably more than a combined century of professional experience. I couldn't even bring myself to watch the followup live performance of an episode of "The Jeffersons".

I did watch Jennifer Hudson sing the theme song, though. She, and it, was great.

Not a dozen but they did get two of them and filmed them from different camera angles to make it look like different bombers.

Sounds boring as hell but that was not the case. Mel Gibson playing a Scot. No! Don't run away,this time it wasn't too bad smile

The film was very good,not sure why it got a 46% RT score but then again I tend to ignore RT nowadays.

John Wick 3.
If you liked or loved the first two then go for it. It's waaaaaaaaaaaay more of the same. Otherwise don't bother.

Netflix seems to be obsessed with making two types of sci-fi movies.

1. Alien invasion.

2. Post apocalyptic world.
