    Yesterday I watched Suspicion on Blu-ray disc. Not my favorite Hitchcock, nor Cary Grant but I've always enjoyed this film.

    The Heroes Of Telemark and Count Three And Pray have just arrived so I'll watch one of them tonight.

    Watched all 4 films via the TCM app:
    The Young and the Brave 1963. GI PoW's (losers?) in Korea trying to reach the American lines, pursued by Chinese commies and joined by an orphaned boy and a GI dog. Oh, it's almost so bad that it could be good. Terrible transfer.
    Whiskey Galore! 1949. Revisiting this delightful film with the ever-so-delectable Joan Greenwood, among others. I last saw this in the '70s in a 35mm print and this is one film I'll buy in the BD that's available. It's worth it.
    The Far Country 1954. Not the BD from Arrow, which I've read is somewhat problematic. This transfer is serviceable. The movie is dark, so dark. I really felt for poor Ruth Roman who gives everything up for the man she loves. Dark film indeed, filled with venal characters.
    It's a Date 1940. It's so nice to see Durbin grown up and stretching as an actress and singer. Durbin is beautifully shot and handles the comedy well. The transfer is fair at best.

    I watched Count Three And Pray last night, another magnificent transfer from Sony. The film is more interesting for what it isn't than for what it is. There seems to have been a lot cut out. The Allison Hayes character is the most interesting but she is not properly developed and her sordid relationship with Raymond Burr's villain is not explained. I enjoyed the film and absolutely loved the wide range of exquisite colors in the 2.55:1 images. I'll watch this film again fairly soon.

    Tonight: The Heroes Of Telemark, another Sony Blu-ray disc.

    Not many movies lately. I burned through three seasons of Atypical, which was good, and caught up on This Is Us.

    Zombieland: Double Tap (2019): It was fun, but maybe the inventiveness just isn't as amusing the second time around. I've always enjoyed the original, own it and have seen it several times. I have a feeling I might like it better on a second viewing.

    The Big Clock (1948) - This was our first time seeing the movie, but I read the Kenneth Fearing novel some years ago. We watched the Arrow blu-ray. This is a terrific thriller -- a complex story but very tightly plotted -- with elements of film noir and of screwball comedy. There are excellent performances by Ray Milland and Charles Laughton. Elsa Lanchester has a supporting role but steals every scene she is in. In addition to the film, there are some very good extras: a short documentary on the film and another on Charles Laughton. The commentary track by Adrian Martin is great; he had lots of insights and seemed incredibly well prepared. This is a film we'll be re-watching.

    Star Trek (2009): I have thoroughly enjoyed this prequel/re-imagining of the original series from the first time I saw it. Being re-introduced to the characters, the inventive story, right down to the effects. The obvious love of the characters. I think it's rather brilliant. I wish they'd "worked" with their freedoms more in the future installments, but I like those as well. I'm very disappointed to see that the series seems to be dead in the water. This is one of my favorite movies of the noughties.

    First episode got my attention and now I find myself thinking about trying to decide if I can afford to add CBS Online mostly for this one show.

    For not the first time, and probably not the last, I have a free hour to 90 minutes and no idea what to watch. And for not the first time and probably not the last, I’ll either stare at my shelf and run out of time while trying to make a decision, or will just end up watching something Star Trek.

    Watched a few more rental titles last week:

    [​IMG]
    The Equalizer 2

    Saw this in the theater when it first came out, but wanted to see it again. A solid sequel to the first film.

    Toy Story 4
    The wife and I enjoyed the heck out of this one. Pixar does it again. Lots of fun new characters...especially enjoyed Forky and Key and Peele's "Duck/Bunny" double act.

    I've been watching the second season of Jessica Jones. There's no way it could match the first season, which was exceptional, but it's pretty decent. The first season was a remarkably dark and effective metaphor for the results of gaslighting and emotional abuse & control. Really, one of the best seasons of episodic TV I've ever seen, but seriously heavy at times.

    Finished The Longest Day! I know that it just covered 6 June but the ending was very abrupt. Would have liked a short commentary on the numbers of troops/ships involved and their progress through Europe at the end of the film.
