    Somewhat of a Hitchcock fan here. So I was interested in seeing Spellbound on TMC.

    The title didn't work. I was sound asleep after a half hour. Grandma shook me awake, told me to go to bed, watched the rest of it and then Notorious, which she said was the one I should've seen. But by then, I was in the bedroom and had hit the road to dreamland.

    We watched Captain America: Civil War on Netflix. We like the characters and the universe, so it was all right. But I'm glad we didn't buy tickets to see it.

    Spawn. Pretty bad movie, but John Leguizamo's performance was electric.

    Re Kubrick... In my view he is overrated. Way overrated!! To be a director is not only settings and cameraangles and things. It is also about telling a story. regarding FMJ the first part, in camp, is very good. The rest is bad, unconvincing and pointless. There have been many better Vietnam movies though his camp part is probably the best but since that just a part of the movie you cant judge the movie from that. Eyes Wide Shut? BORing, Boring, Boring, 2001, Confusing. I could go on. He was best in the early movies, like Spartacus, when he actually told a story too!

    ....gotta give you a big "agree" on this one....I was and am a fan of that character, and the movie should have burned in Hell....

    Re Kubrick again.... Just look at his filmography. His early ones are the best: The Killers, Spartacus, Paths of Glory, Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange and Lolita. The Shining was a good horrormovie but a bad adaptation. Barry Lyndon not the movie it should have been, FMJ has good parts but not good as a whole, 2001 interesting but confusing and ultimately a failure, Eyes Wide Shut a disaster. I might have forgotten some but these are the one ones i remember without looking. Anyway its clear that he was past his prime about 1975. The 50s, 60,s and early 70s are the kubrick we ought to look at, not his ambitious failures that is usually connected with his name from the later part of his career.

    Because I'm a 9 year old, that's why.

    And she may not be MJ - filmmakers say that was just dropped in as a tease.

    Aw, she was juiced in from the dang Disney channel. I know what those corporate ding dongs are up to.

    But anyway, just dye her hair red and I'm good. And bring back Jonah Jameson!

    Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016)

    Mediocre movie with some big laughs. It's sort of an "In-Laws" type of movie except the mysterious people are neighbors instead of an in-law. It's very funny in places but a bit predictable.

    I`v heard a lot about 2001, but i never heard, it was a Failure.
    Watched it several Times.
    Confusing, yes but also Groundbreaking.
    Untill 1969, most of the SCIFI Cinematographic Works were Nonsense.
    It unites a Technical Utopia with Cultural/Philosophycal Speculations.
    Visuell still Stunning, and an awesome Cut

    Glad you liked it! (Probably was better for you, since you don't have to use subtitles!)

    I was going to ask you, could you understand them without the subtitles? They spoke very rapidly and I made a note of it. "Dahm, if Danie can understand these people she has an excellent ear," was my thought. :)

    (BTW-I mentioned you in the Weekly Survey. :smug:)

    Jeez, no. If someone is speaking to me in Spanish, I ask them to speak very slowly, por favor! Even, then I struggle. These actors speak so fast, I'm lucky if I hear and understand one or two words in each sentence.

    Spiderman Homecoming.

    Quite enjoyable. From having seen Spiderman from the '70s (I was a late-comer to Marvel), Tom Holland nails it as the geeky, conflicted, frustrated, and actually young wisecracking Peter Parker of legend, and they tie it in nicely to Tony Stark and Civil War.

    We all (grandparents and grandchildren) enjoyed it thoroughly, and the ending credits were a joy, and the Easter egg at the very, very end got us. Joke's on us, Marvel. Nicely played.

    If you like the Marvel Universe to any degree, you'll probably like this.

    I've seen this one many times before, but I saw it again this week -- Anything Else, by W. Allen. Great movie; smart screenplay. Has an awesome flow to it; impeccable dialogue, almost play-like at times (and I always enjoy characters talking to the audience). I also quite like Irrational Man by Allen and have watched that again recently -- not a comedy, really, just a superb concept done well.

    Not really into the Marvel stuff, I'm afraid...
