    I watched the 1958 Cat on a Hot Tin Roof tonight. Hadn't planned on it; just stumbled across it on Netflix while I was watching other things and surfing afterwards. I'd say if some enterprising producer wanted to remake a Tennessee Williams drama, this would be the one to tackle since it wouldn't be burdened by the restrictive Production Code as this version was.

    Still surprised no one else has commented on “Letterkenny”. We just binged watched “seasons” 4 and 5, and as usual, laughed our asses off.
    It is a show from “Crave” tv I believe, and although we don’t subscribe, the library has each “season” on DVD. (I put “season” with quotations because each only consists of 7 episodes.)

    Great "feel good" movie. Good transfer and the wonderful Jack Palance. What more could one ask?

    OK "I made a cow!"

    The Tony Awards are tonight, so I'll definitely be watching that. Until then, I'm still streaming things from Netflix and Prime, and I've got last night's Noir Alley to attend to today, too.

    We avoided the movie on the theatre, but I ordered the 3der from Britain. I really enjoyed it and watched it multiple times already, especially in 3D. It motivated me to get the book out of the library. The movie parallels it more closely than is usually the case.

    Hello Dave Just like you I have never seen this movie. It was a blind buy. The movie was mastered in 8k and as one of the critics pointed out it seemed to borrow from different franchises e.g. Terminator, Lord of the rings etc. The colours were excellent and if I had Dolby vision it would be even better. Unfortunately my Sony could not be updated to carry DV.I just have HDR10. The sound was all around excellent. The movie was entertaining and full of action and special effects.
    Regards

    Last night:
    The Commuter (VUDU 4K UHD HDR10 Stream) Good thriller. Neeson plays the moral hero making the right choice.
    The Wages of Fear (BFI BD Zone B) Be aware that this is a longer cut than the Criterion disc. What a great thriller this is! Clouzot is a master of suspense; the acting is superb.
    Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno (Arrow Academy BD) A documentary about the aborted production featuring the footage shot by Clouzot starring Romy Schneider and Serge Reggiani. Fascinating experiment. Clouzot seemed to suffer some sort of artistic crisis and subsequently suffered a heart attack. End of production.
    The Mystery of Picasso (Arrow Academy BD Zone B) Another Clouzot film, this one documenting Picasso at work. Picasso stipulated that the works created for this documentary had to be destroyed after completion of the shoot, so this is the only documentation of these works.
    Tonight I'll be watching The Tony Awards. After that, who knows?

    After watching The Tony Awards, I settled for a TCM app movie made in 1983 by Haile Gerima: Ashes and Embers, about an African-American 'Nam veteran. Non-linear storytelling. Strong stuff. Glad I caught it.

    After watching DD movies on TCM all day with my bride I wanted something a little different for evening viewing. Bogey and Bacall - what more can I say.

    Today I watched Good Day For a Hanging, a very clever variation on the "liberal" themes in film such as Knock On Any Door and Twelve Angry Men. Fred MacMurray, as always, was excellent without seeming to do any acting! Joan Blackman, whom I always think of as an Elvis Presley co-star, plays his idealistic but naïve daughter. It's a good film. I wonder if Sony will ever give it the high definition treatment.

    Used the TCM app last night to watch The Falcon in Mexico, entertaining fluff after watching the Tonys fluff.
    Today:
    Dark Phoenix (3D XD DCP Dolby Atmos) More X-Men.
    This will be my last post here until the 20th of this month. I'll be traveling to the Library of Congress in Culpeper, VA, to watch some silent films and a rare John Wayne from 1937 (reportedly one of his worst). Will report when I get home.

    Have a safe trip! I must say I admire your discipline in watching so many movies each day as I get easily sidetracked by other interests like sports.

    I availed myself of TCM's Doris Day tribute marathon by watching On Moonlight Bay and Please Don't Eat the Daisies off the TCM app tonight. Haven't seen either of those in a period of years, so it was nice to reacquaint myself with them.
