I finally got around to seeing Joker

Wow! This is a cinematic masterpiece. I truly think it is. Just so much to absorb from the film on what it says about society, government, the class system, etc, etc plus it's set in a very realistic 'comic book' film.

Arthur's transformation through the film is utterly stunning.

And about that controversial music cue...I think that is very deliberate too. It would be far too jarring for it not to be. Everything other single piece of music was chosen very specifically. I was just glad they (deliberately) did not use enough of it so they would have to pay any royalties.

A stunning piece of cinema that was almost perfect in every single way.

I watched the first three Mindhunters and loved it. But it's not the sort of thing to watch just before going to bed. Which is the only time I get to watch stuff.

I watched 6 episodes today (slow, wet, dank day (weatherwise)) and I have to say I need something light and fluffy tonight to lift my spirits. This stuff is pretty dark.

Mindhunter

Watched the first 2 episodes ages ago and really enjoyed it and so this week I have re-started the series. It is top quality imo.

The first book of The Dark Tower (which was 5 separate stories published in the late 60's, early 70's) are hard going. Once you get to the 2nd book, The Drawing of The Three, it's rockets along and is truly one of the best series of books ever written.

Throw out Your Game of Thrones, this is the real stuff.
70's-80's I think you'll find. :)

I loved the Dark Tower up until its meta turning point, then went a bit cold on it.

You are correct on publication. King says that he wrote the first story in the late 60's and then shelved it.

Doctor Sleep

Enjoyed this and it's good that it differs from the book imo.

In fact the book is a sequel to The Shining novel whilst the movie is a sequel to The Shining Movie so we have the best of both worlds.

Dodgy accents aside (wtf happened to Rebecca Ferguson's accent...Now you hear it now you don't) a decent movie. A little indulgent and a little overlong but fun none the less.

It's been a while, but I seem to remember Tomb of Ligeia being something of a standout.

It is a standout. I think mainly because it's the only one filmed on location.

Re-watching Rear Window for the first time in years.

Jesus, Jimmy Stewart's character is such a dick. And Grace Kelly is so very beautiful.

Disney didn't factor provincial VHS rental outlets into this marketing scam, though - my local was offering Song Of The South for rent right up until the day it suddenly closed down in the late 2000s.

I've still got a VHS original of that.

I must have seen The Godfather and it's sequels hundreds of times.


Like who hasn't?
And I bet these fottuti falsi were tuning in to The Sopranos every week too.

Many haven't according to some of the comments in this thread.

First time I saw it was when I was around 8 years old and despite being an avid horror film fan during that young period it was a scene in The Godfather that gave me nightmares for some time.

The horse's head in the bed scene.
