Okay, I let Greg's post slide as it falls under the general heading of "Movies", but if this is going to turn into a discussion, there are STAR WARS threads for that!

(That's okay, 'cause he's officially on my IGNORE list.  The guy just cannot help himself, and it's beyond tiresome.)

And now for something completely different: MOBY DICK (1930). Wow. Just... wow. And not in a good way.

Actually, say what you want about STAR WARS (in the proper venue), its sequels and prequels got nothing on this movie. John Barrymore does show his magnetism as that lovable scamp, Ahab.

FROZEN 2

Certainly a notch or two below the original. But okay in spots, and some excellent animation as well.

Followed by...

6 UNDERGROUND

Not even Ryan Reynolds and some occasional one-liners could raise this above the usual Michael Bay level. It was okay for a mindless action diversion but I am not planning on watching it again.

I've been in a Batman-mood so the last couple of days I've been watching these:

BATMAN (1989)

Yup, it's flawed and the casting of Keaton is off model. Yet I find a lot of pleasure in this one. The set designs, the score, the batmobile and even Batman's costume looks better than in most other movies. And Keaton does a good job in that costume. And Michael Gough as Alfred... 

BATMAN RETURNS (1992)

What a freak show - literally. It barely finds time for Batman in the first hour. Christopher Walken steals the entire movie, though.

BATMAN FOREVER (1995)

Ok, I knew I was going to be in for a rough ride for this one - and I didn't last all the way through. It's just too terrible on every level, from Val Kilmer as Batman to the nipples on the costume. 

I won't be watching BATMAN & ROBIN.

Your lack of dedication is disturbing.

THE GODFATHER PART III (1976)

Ever and always, a true masterpiece.

The Perfection (2019)

Flawed, certainly, but I got hooked by this one. Impressive performances from the two leads(it included some relevant themes, too).

The online blurb describes it as: 

 A troubled musical prodigy and a new star pupil embark down a sinister path.

Doesn't even come close to describing what I watched.

PATHS OF GLORY. I recently watched SPARTACUS so wanted
to follow up with this other Kirk Douglass/Stanley
Kubrick film. Two very different movies! This is only
the second time seeing PATHS OF GLORY and I had pretty
much forgotten the whole story-line. Powerful movie
with much more "Kubrick-y" moments than SPARTACUS.
