Better than the 1997 Titanic cos it has more heart, a beautiful Barbara Stanwyck and no DiCaprio.


No one remembers that old Titanic movie though so for all of the merits it may have, it wasn't enough to create a legacy.


And along with Blastman, I don't get the criticisms AT ALL against DiCaprio. He's proven he can act in the 26 years since Titanic was released.

DiCaprio in Django. Enough said. The guy always delivers.

IMHO it's a great film but I totally understand if others don't care for it.

By Hollywood standards the movie has a glacial pace and much of the film is people just sitting around talking in very ornate rooms.


In my case, I have an academic interest in the 18th century (both military and political) and as a general rule I really enjoy historical period pieces.

So the bottom line is that Barry Lyndon is certainly an acquired taste and not for everyone. In that sense it's really not much different from 2001 or Clockwork Orange.

I think it would have been great if it had been edited tighter, could have easily cut 30-45 minutes without losing anything. Glad I watched it but it's not something I will watch again any time soon.

One of my favorite scenes in the film is where Barry meets George III and being the opportunist that he is, he proudly tells him how he has contributed funds to fight those "dastardly rebels in North America". smile

I like Barry Lyndon, but his is probably fair.


In a similar vein I recently watched Kundun, the Martin Scorsese film about the early life of the 14th Dalai Lama. Beautifully shot and overall pretty good, but it seemed a bit longer than it's 2 1/4 hour run time.

Yep. I like him in Inception, Shutter Island, Django, and especially in Blood Diamond, his best role, IMO.


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

I thought he did very good as Howard Hughes in The Aviator.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Most definitely! Been quite a few years since I’ve seen that movie, have to add it to my list again.

I'm currently rewatching the Netflix hosted German sci-fi series Dark. I enjoyed it 2 or 3 years ago and am enjoying it just as much now. Very complex and intricate sci-fi drama involving missing children, time travel, closed loops of cause & effect, family & inter-family dramas complicated by children moving back & forward in time to start new lives in the next or previous generation. Gets pretty mind-bendy but it's only 3 seasons, and is a full and closed storyline.

They did a pretty good job IMO with casting youths & adults & elders that believably could be the same person at different ages. In fact, I read that at least one character is played by real-life father & son who have a genetic resemblance.

The best thing about Executive Decision is that Steven Segal's character dies.

A New Breed of Criminal (2023)

A somewhat low budget British crime drama that's based on a true story.

The A-Team episode 1 "Mexican Slayride".

Yeah.

As expected, has aged as well as Cambodian gas station sushi.

These United States of America
Found a movie from 1990 on Youtube called "The Last of the Finest" with Brian Dennehy, Joe Pantoliano, Jeff Fahey and Bill Paxton. The four man team play a tightknit unit of L.A. cops who have been long on the trail of a major drug operation. It all goes sideways and unravels into a significant conspiracy that involves government officials, members of the police and a "patriotic" organization providing American arms to Central American "freedom fighters" and its all a big racket. This particular selection of actors play really well off one another. The story is sort of a run-of-the-mill action plot often seen in the 80s but its interesting and entertaining and again, all of the main actors including the chief of police do a great job. It had way too much profanity to the point of being distracting and some of the banter was locker-room level childish but most of the dialogue was well written aside from these things that just does everything else a disservice. Overall though this was a pretty fun movie. I would have liked to see another movie with this same group of guys as it was a good cast of actors.
