    Sully: Miracle on the Hudson.

    Nothing special but short and sweet.

    Free for All (1949) (4/5)

    [​IMG]


    An obscure little Hollywood film with a relatively unconventional plot. As a matter of fact, its obscurity is highlighted by the fact that there are no reviews available on IMDb's website (there is a well-written storyline, though), which is surprising considering that most other obscure old English-language films that I've seen have at least one review.

    Anyway, the basic plot is that an inventor, played by the youthful-looking Robert Cummings, discovers a way to convert liquid water into gasoline for vehicles. The conflict, which is intertwined with the love interest storyline (played by Ann Blyth), arises when a major oil company gets involved. I thought it was enjoyable; it's not a clear-cut comedy with an abundance of laughs, but it's leaning more towards that genre than drama. It's light-hearted and a good way to waste an 70 minutes if you're bored. I do think, however, that the ending felt a bit contrived and rushed.

    But overall, the movie that shares the name with one of IMDF's beloved off-topic sections, is worth a watch.

    ABSENCE OF MALICE (1981) 4/5.

    An interesting and well-made American drama, with a title that refers to the legal definition of one of the requirements of proof against libel defamation and is used in journalism classes to illustrate the conflict between disclosing damaging personal information and the public's right to know. The film was written by Kurt Luedtke - a former newspaper editor - and David Rayfiel. It was produced by Ronald L Schwary and Sydney Pollack, who also directed it. It stars Paul Newman, Sally Field, Bob Balaban, Melinda Dillon, Josef Sommer and Wilford Brimley. It is certainly worth the effort to watch.

    The Lost Boys (1987) - the suspense, the comedy and the music are immortally wonderful - but dear lord, the mullets!

    I saw this recently, too. It's like the antithesis of ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN! Melinda Dillon is especially good in a heart-breaking role.

    The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada (Tommy Lee Jones, 2005) - I had a bunch of rom-coms I wanted to see, but the missus said "Can't we watch a western for a change?" The missus won.
    A dim-witted Texas border patrolman crosses paths with a rancher out to seek justice for the killing of his undocumented Mexican worker, and together they go on a journey that has parallels with (although more accessible than) Dead Man (Jim Jarmusch, 1995). The film itself seems a decade or so ahead of itself - I'm sure if it were made today, it would be seen as reactive to the current political scene.

    Bridget Jone's Baby is a 2016 romantic comedy film. The film stars Renée Zellweger as Bridget Jones, who after becoming pregnant is unsure if Mark Darcy (Colin Firth, also reprising his role) or Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey) is the father.

    It was a nice, cute comedy to watch on a gloomy, rainy Saturday. If you saw the other two, it had the same feeling. Nothing to write home about, except the male eye candy◆◆◆:emoji_purple_heart::emoji_purple_heart::emoji_purple_heart:[/B]

    I watched Moana over the weekend with my family. Quite an enjoyable movie with great songs.

    Get Out (2017) I liked it, except for the few failed attempts of humour.
