I knew a mafia type guy some years ago. He was a sort o hit man type. He showed me some oil stock paper which gave him a penny a barrel on oil shipped. He had received these fro blowing up competetors tanker(which he showed me a photo of) he also had this rather odd pistol, 5 shot reverse turn cylinder.
He had heart problems and was not very active.

Interesting review of 1917

The author describes his struggle of watching what is essentially a single shot style movie... when he's been conditioned by fast cuts and continual stimulation for most of his life.

I thought the cinematography was excellent in 1917.  Highly recommend seeing it on the big screen.

I will watch at home when it comes out on red box, I have a projection set up with a kick ass stereo. I have seen a lot of excellent war movies such as Ryan. From the reviews it does not seem that it captures the tragedy and uselessness of WWI. Sounds like an excellent technical achievement, but not a must see. Not a Paths of Glory. I could be wrong.

Better than Saving Pvt Ryan IMO.  The technical genius of shooting / editing this movie is more relevant than it capturing the actual tragedy of WWI. The uselessness of the war is nothing more than personal opinion outside the scope of any actual thought on the movie itself.

Not really Titanic was a wonderful technical achievement as a film. It did not explore the complexity of the situation. As a consequence it has been relegated over time to be a piece of fluff and a launching pad for some of its actors. To me and many others WWI was the central tradgedy of the 20th century leading directly to WWII and the rise of both communism and fascism as well as modern literature which continues to today. Many films we fantastic technical achievements Birth of A Nation, Triumph of the Will - Olympiad, Top Gun, Marvel Films, etc. All are interesting and influential but not great in my opinion.

I saw Togo on Disney+ yesterday. What a great doggy movie! There's a sequence of the dogsled team crossing Norton Sound as it's breaking up which is pure tension; while most likely overly dramatized for the movie, the dramatic ending is reportedly true. Some stunning cinematography as well.

I've been on a losing streak lately.  Quit on several movies, others I finished weren't noteworthy.  I did just watch one I enjoyed.  "The Art of Racing in the Rain."  Never read the book it was based on.  I didn't realize the story is set in Seattle.  While some of it was filmed in Canada, some of it was definitely here.  This could've been sappy or trite, but it was well crafted.  The dog(s)--puppy, adult and old versions--were amazing.  Kevin Costner narrating from the dog's point of view was a really good choice.  Milo Ventimiglia and Amanda Seyfried as the human leads were good.  The trailers did a good job of not spoiling the movie.  Might need a tissue or two for this one.

Just remembered I saw another good dog movie several weeks ago--"Red Dog."  Based on a true story, almost a legend really, set in Australia.  Another good one, definitely worth a watch.

I guess I just stopped posting on this thread for a while.  Streamed a couple decent movies from either Netflix or Amazon over the Christmas holiday.  I'd been wanting to see "Ladies in Black" for a while but couldn't get my hands on it.  Highly recommend.  Good coming of age story set in Australia in the 50s.  I continue to be really impressed with Angourie Rice.  She's going places (just hope she doesn't keep getting wasted in small throwaway roles like she has in the Spider Man franchise).  I hadn't seen Julia Ormond in anything in ages, nice to see her again.  Interesting facet to this movie was a community of immigrants from various Eastern European countries.

Another I'd never heard anything about previously--"Greenfingers (2000)."  Clive Owen and Helen Mirren looking a bit younger than I'm used to seeing them.  Based on a true story, about an experimental prison in England that was low (nearly non-existent) security.  The idea was if you didn't treat them like criminals, they might not act like it.  Several of the inmates took an interest in horticulture and ended up beginning an award winning program.  Interesting story.
