    Connery in On Her Majesty's Secret Service?

    Not to mention her being Patsy in Ab Fab for twenty years.

    RRR (2022)

    Can't wait for it to show up in my part pf the world as well, no date on Netflix yet.

    *** Official "TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES" Review Thread

    And until Dark Fate, that was true of the franchise (although my order is 1, 2, 3), 3 was not as bad as everyone said, and 4 and 5 were much worse than anyone said, but Dark Fate was actually quite good. And let's no go there anymore now, ok? And Claire Danes, as always, lights up every movie...

    Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (2023)

    Yeah well, it's all true, as you know: 'Crazy thing is... it's true. The Force, the Jedi. All of it. It's all true.'

    Titanic (1997)

    Never knew that. Or noticed. Another great reason to revisit in April when the time comes. I always see it at that time. As she says; 'A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets' truly.

    Titanic (1997)

    And that is just after Brock says the same thing, when he realizes what's in the picture that has just been uncovered. Great cut.

    Indiana Jones and the lost bong?

    Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (2023)

    So almost two decades after Crystal. So what is it this time, Soviets, again, or do we not yet know? 1969 is too early for oil and arabs, no? The first crisis was not until 1973, so the only real enemies were still the Soviets. Or Chinese? Or maybe South America? But he has already been there...

    Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (2023)

    So, back to the movie at hand, do we know when it takes place? There were nazis (or at least one) in the trailer, so before Crystal Skull? Or old nazis? Or does it disregard Crystal?

    Titanic (1997)

    So what can I say? Totally magnificent, after all these years. What a fantastic experience, like seeing it for the first time, although I've seen it dozens of times. That was intense. And everyone (all forty of them) sat through the credits. Got home and dug out the blu special edition from...

    Titanic (1997)

    Three hours before my show, and when I say my show, I almost meant it. I'm seeing an early afternoon show in Stockholm's only Imax, only 40 tickets sold out of over 400 seats, so it's almost private. Guess everyone will see the evening show, already sold out. Can't wait.

    Thanks for that link, a great read.

    Toy Story 5

    Not me, I never thought TS3 had a great ending, or even was great, it was just a toy remake of a WW2 prison camp story, and I was suprised how people loved it so much. TS4, on the other hand, was really great, and doesn't need a sequel. But that is just me, probably not target audience ...

    Titanic (1997)

    Well, never saw it theatrically, but saw the 2012 3D release, on a pretty small screen, so today I found tickets for a day show at our Imax theater next week. Can't wait. No great fan of 3D myself, but if anyone should do it; it should be Cameron. And I'd rather see a 3D Imax show of Titanic...

    Empire of Light (2022)

    Based on the above comments, it sounds a bit like The Majestic, which I liked a lot, but I may of course be totally mistaken. Anyway, Mendes, Deakins and that impressive list of acting talent, plus the composers, makes me very interested.

    The Menu (2022)

    Just saw it tonight, and thought it was totally magnificent. Anya Taylor-Joy totally owns every scene she is in, and the cinematography is beautiful. Plus big up to John Leguziamo being bloated and unpleasant in a great way. And then Ralph Fiennes is the master of all this, in an equally...

    Titanic (1997)

    Agree, never saw it originally in theaters, so the only time I saw it was 2012, in 3D, which was good, but I still would have liked to see it as originally intended. Still do. Not sure if I'll go this time, they are showing the whole LotR trilogy (extended) theatrically here now as well, and...

    Avatar: The Way of Water (2022)

    No, to be honest I don't know, I just assumed that is the way it was shown, but of course I could be wrong. I know I saw the first Hobbit in HFR and didn't think much of it as there were so many other things that made it a less than good movie.

    Avatar: The Way of Water (2022)

    Maybe I'm blind, but I don't get this HFR hate, and frankly couldn't even notice it in Avatar, it all looked more or less like a video game to me. And as for the Hobbit, this is what made them horrible? With so many other bad decisions?

    Theatrical A Man Called Otto (2022)

    The original actually got two Academy Award nominations, I've seen DVDs with English subs available, but not blus (although I haven't looked that hard). Would be interesting to compare them (I haven't seen either yet).

    Avatar: The Way of Water (2022)

    For me, the LotR trilogy is definitely there with Star Wars or Godfather, and I saw the first SW in the theater, showing my age. However, it might be one of the few more modern films to have that kind of impact.

    Your one, and ONLY ONE exclusion from the Rolling Stone 200 greatest singers list.

    Second Ofra, that was a pleasant surprise. Donna is #122, no? I'm surprised, and glad, to see Poly Styrene, but equally surprised John Lydon isn't there. No other punk singer had a more characteristic voice, IMHO. And what about David Byrne? Or Peter Gabriel?

    The Pale Blue Eye (2022)

    Agreed, really great, with twists and turns you don't see coming. Loved the slow pace, and the cinematography was exceedingly beautiful. Didn't realize Duvall was init until I saw the credits.

    5 Movies You'll NEVER Watch Again...

    Well, I beg to differ. Oliver Stone's JFK, or Comandante, just stories? I think not. There are probably many more examples, Battleship Potemkin being probably the first with Triumph of the Will a second. Films matter, and can change people's minds. Just revisited it the other day, after not...

    5 Movies You'll NEVER Watch Again...

    Interesting. Tree of Life was weird, but I could easily see it again, just to see what I missed. Magnolia is one of the greatest movies I have ever seen, not just one of the best of PTA's. The rest I haven't seen. Really interesting the difference in taste we all have. Anyway, not sure I have...

    Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody (2022)

    Well, you had me at 'Stanley Tucci, nailing the Arista mogul’s bone-dry dictator-mensch savoir faire', although I was interested even before knowing that. The Netflix docu on Clive was mesmerising, especially how he managed Whitney. And Stanley Tucci is always brilliant. Need to check this out...
