    That is too bad. You didn't write anything offensive, and you are entitled to your opinion. I'm sure most regular movie watchers have a famous actor or actress whose abilities they don't think much of. Natalie Portman would be one for me. I think she has been okay in one thing I've seen her in but is usually just unconvincing and annoying.
    I appreciate the sentiment, but that's just the kind considerate person I am. Lloyd on the other hand is a big meanie that can't help teasing me.

    heh heh

    Rhinestone co-stars Stallone with Dolly Parton. I love Stallone in comedies (and I must be the only person who didn't hate Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot). Dolly has to win a bet with the Rhinestone club owner that she can turn anyone into a country music star. Who does it turn out to be? Yup, Stallone. Outlandish? You bet!

    But though it has good music and funny one-liners, Rhinestone doesn't quite hold together. Howeverrrrr—-

    Getting Physical is a made-for-TV movie with a music video every ten seconds. It features Alexandra Paul, Sandahl Bergman, and a few name bodybuilders. The premise is that Paul, an aspiring actress, is fat, so she turns to bodybuilding. Paul looks like a supermodel, even while the filmmakers are pretending she actually is fat. Drama part: her boyfriend the cop doesn't like her pumping iron.

    1984 is the year Cory Everson began her Miss Olympia reign. I was at that time a (non-competitive) bodybuilder and wrote for various obscure bodybuilding magazines.

    1. You don't train on carrot sticks and protein powder. 2. You don't train for a month and enter an allegedly big contest. 3. A beat cop driving a Porsche? Suuuure.

    Winning the Outlandish Contest by a mile: Getting Physical.
    Of course, now we have Stallone in “King of Tulsa”. Maybe something rubbed off?

    "To Sleep with Anger" from 1990. Despite good reviews, it didn't click with me.

    "Heaven Knows, Mister Allison" from 1957 and starring Robert Mitchum DVD Deborah Kerr. Quite enjoyable, well acted, war/adventure movie.

    "The Green Knight"

    I'm familiar with the various Arthurian legends, and the story of Gawain and the Green Knight. This one is a slightly but interestingly surreal retelling. The imagery is amazing.

    I was looking for a shot of Gawain in the entrance of the green chapel, and came across this article from "Filmmaker's Academy"; which in addition to providing numerous images, describes the technical points of creating the atmosphere - or "look".

    1995's Tommy Boy: Chris Farley, David Spade. Crude, lowbrow buddy/road film, with some great belly laughs.

    Just finished watching "Wakfu" Season 3 on Netflix! Absolutely loved the animation quality and how the storyline has evolved. The character development, especially of Yugo and his friends, was fascinating to follow. The blend of humor, adventure, and emotional depth in this season was just right. Highly recommend it to anyone into animated series with rich worlds and compelling narratives. What are your thoughts on it?

    The Kings Speech.

    I imagine Colin Firth worked pretty hard to pull off the impediment so convincingly, but the thing I liked best is Helena Bonham Carter's performance.

    "The Killers", from 1964. A remake starring Lee Marvin, Angie Dickenson, John Cassavetes, Ronald Reagan, Norman Fell.. Apparently, it was made for TV but subsequently deemed too violent. I really liked it despite it being on a 1964 TV budget.

    The last movie I watched was M. Night Shyamalan's film, Knock at the Cabin. I liked his movies in the past, and I always respected his twist endings, but this film was more gruesome than others. A bit too much. And the ending did not exactly meet his traditional set ups. That is as much as I will say without giving anything away.

    Same here. We used to be fans. I haven't seen this, nor will I.

    Last night we saw 1997's The Ice Storm. That is, almost… couldn't make it to the end this time, since we'd seen it before. Absolutely excellent performances from Sigourney Weaver, Kevin Kline and all cast members, but icky and depressing.

    A great film. Depressing and, yes, a bit icky. It was originally going to be more of a comedy; some of the deleted scenes are quite funny. But, with the ending the film has, they thought, yeah, we really can't have this be too much of a comedy.

    Binged True Detective: Night Country with Jodie Foster. Just a mashup of a mass murder, the clues of which didn’t line up, with lots of intimations that the culprit was some vague native spirit “She”, but wasn’t. Sheesh.

    Oh. And a mysterious, unclaimed tongue. 🙄

    Wetlands (2013)

    Holy guacamole! Let's just say the title is not referring to a swamp. This coming of age film is quite raunchy, but also quite good. I read that the bestselling novel on which it is based was sometimes banned, and so decided to watch the movie.

    The documentary "The Animators Who've Spent 40 Years on a Single Film" from https://youtu.be/73hip3pz0Xs
    Fascinating look at the passionate (obsessive) and talented husband and wife team of Russian animators. Their "Hedgehog and the Fog" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThmaGMgWRlY) and "The Tale of Tales" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hN1zimADh6Q) are considered by some as the best animated movies ever.

    "Murder, My Sweet" starring Dick Powell as PI Phillip Marlowe. Entertaining Raymond Chandler done right.
