Movies I’ve recently seen: Wildcat ֍ KIMI ֍ Glass Onion ֍ Bluebeard’s Eighth Wife ֍ Babylon ֍ This Place Rules

A lot of good films, or at least interesting ones, pop up at the end of the year. In this selection of Movies I've Recently Seen, there's only one vintage movie, along with five new pictures. Unfortunately, I've seen only one in a theater; there are fewer and fewer cinemas where I live. A Wildcat … Continue reading Movies I’ve recently seen: Wildcat ֍ KIMI ֍ Glass Onion ֍ Bluebeard’s Eighth Wife ֍ Babylon ֍ This Place Rules

Movies I’ve Recently Seen: del Toro’s Pinocchio ֍ Little Big Man ֍ Eating Our Way to Extinction ֍ EO & Twentieth Century

Here are five films that I haven't written about until now. As usual, the films go from best to worst. A Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio (2022) I saw the Disney version some 40 years ago, and I didn't care for it then. I never read the original novel. This new version is set mostly in … Continue reading Movies I’ve Recently Seen: del Toro’s Pinocchio ֍ Little Big Man ֍ Eating Our Way to Extinction ֍ EO & Twentieth Century

Movies I’ve recently seen: Quiet on the Western Front ֍ The Decameron ֍ Lady Chatterley’s Lover ֍ His People ֍ Saving Mr. Banks ֍ The Prisoner of Zenda

Here are six films I hadn't seen before my last Recently Seen article. For the most part, they're about war, sex, family, movies, intrigue, and more sex. A- All Quiet on the Western Front (2022) It's about time the German film industry turned Erich Maria Remarque's powerful anti-war novel into a film. Hollywood did it … Continue reading Movies I’ve recently seen: Quiet on the Western Front ֍ The Decameron ֍ Lady Chatterley’s Lover ֍ His People ֍ Saving Mr. Banks ֍ The Prisoner of Zenda

Movies I’ve recently seen: Bros ֍ See How They Run ֍ Contempt ֍ Car Wash

Here are four films I recently saw for the first time. Curiously, the two new movies are both better than the two new-to-me movies. Proof that vintage cinema isn't always great cinema. A Bros (2022); still in theaters This is the best and most original romantic comedy I've seen since Annie Hall. The characters are real and … Continue reading Movies I’ve recently seen: Bros ֍ See How They Run ֍ Contempt ֍ Car Wash

Movies I’ve recently seen: The Asphalt Jungle ֍ Tahara ֍ Honk for Jesus ֍ Elvis

Here's another four random films. This time, most of them are recent. But the best is the only oldie. A- The Asphalt Jungle (1950) There's no one main character in this noir by John Huston. Instead, we get to know six very different criminals as they set out together to steal a fortune in diamonds. … Continue reading Movies I’ve recently seen: The Asphalt Jungle ֍ Tahara ֍ Honk for Jesus ֍ Elvis

Movies I’ve recently seen:  ֍ The Wedding Banquet ֍ Malcolm X ֍ Mississippi Masala ֍ I Know Where I’m Going!

Here are four movies I've recently seen – mostly at home. Three of them were made in the early '90s. Two of those starred Denzel Washington. Most surprising, all four were worth seeing. A The Wedding Banquet (1993) This comedic drama made director Ang Lee famous. A Chinese immigrant in New York has never told … Continue reading Movies I’ve recently seen:  ֍ The Wedding Banquet ֍ Malcolm X ֍ Mississippi Masala ֍ I Know Where I’m Going!

Movies I’ve Recently Seen: Official Competition ֍ Forbidden Paradise ֍ Victor/Victoria ֍ Desert Fury

What movies have I seen recently (outside of the Jewish Film Fest)? There's a very funny Spanish movie, early Lubitsch, Julie Andrews disguised as a man disguised as a woman, and a mediocre melodramatic weepie. I saw two of these films in theaters, and I'll tell you which they are. Click the film's title to … Continue reading Movies I’ve Recently Seen: Official Competition ֍ Forbidden Paradise ֍ Victor/Victoria ֍ Desert Fury

Movies I’ve recently seen: Men Without Women ֍ Tales From Earthsea ֍ The Clock & The Longest Day

Here's another random selection of films I hadn't seen before. None are particularly brilliant. But then, none is truly awful. Click a film's title to find out how you can stream the movie. B Men Without Women (1930)  The film should have been called Men Without Oxygen. John Ford directed this tense, powerful naval thriller, … Continue reading Movies I’ve recently seen: Men Without Women ֍ Tales From Earthsea ֍ The Clock & The Longest Day

Movies I’ve recently seen: L’Atalante ֍ Eating Raoul ֍ Gentlemen Prefer Blondes ֍ Death on the Nile ֍ The Bitcoin Field Guide

Another random selection of old and new movies, from nearly brilliant to worthless junk. Click a movie's title to find out where you can stream it. A- L'Atalante (1934) It's a common story, but done very well, thanks to director Jean Vigo's poetic realism. A bride tries to adjust to her new family, and they … Continue reading Movies I’ve recently seen: L’Atalante ֍ Eating Raoul ֍ Gentlemen Prefer Blondes ֍ Death on the Nile ֍ The Bitcoin Field Guide

Movies I’ve recently seen: Everything Everywhere All at Once ֍ Blue Velvet ֍Bottle Rocket ֍ They Drive by Night

Between SFFilm and the Silent Film Fest, I haven't had much time to just go to the movies - or even watch them at home. So here are four movies, old and new, that I managed to see in the last few weeks. Click a film's title to find out how to see it. A- … Continue reading Movies I’ve recently seen: Everything Everywhere All at Once ֍ Blue Velvet ֍Bottle Rocket ֍ They Drive by Night
