No real URGE to see it! Nothing that "called out" to me.

Heresy, I know.

How about, for once, non-Nazi Germans as the villains?!

THEATER OF BLOOD (1973)

One critic at least called this gem Vincent Price’s TRUE GRIT. I am very much inclined to agree.

(Noticed for the first time, the final credit line, the address of the production company on Vere St.....)

The 1979 Bugs Bunny Road Runner movie seeing as Bugs turned 80 the other
day thought I would treat myself.    

The Star Wars crawl opening cracked me up but man that old Warner red and
black logo brought on some memories

The cartoons themselves just awesome

EARTH GIRLS ARE EASY (1989)

Silly, easy-going, enjoyable '80s time-capsule fluff.  Probably haven't seen this since the very-early '90s, when I was, um, quite taken with Julie Brown...

This time, it was all about Geena Davis!

And the night before:

THE MATRIX (1999)

Broke it out on a whim... arguably the best action movie of the '90s (though I might give the edge to SPEED, another Keanu Reeves film)...

No interest in the watching the sequels all the way through... I've seen enough bits & pieces over the years to know they flew off the rails in a spectacularly ridiculous fashion.  This one's enough!

EVENT HORIZON (1997)

Saw this once before—or maybe I didn’t? Almost nothing as I remember. Did the same cast make a different movie?

Incredibly derivative. Scene after scene seemed spliced in from other movies!

THE DISH (2001)

A charming story of the Apollo 11 mission as seen from
some of the ground crew, particularly in this case a
small group of Australians manning a radio dish to pick
up the transmissions of the first moonwalk to distribute
to the world. Wonderfully nostalgic and at the same time
very character driven. I revisit this every few years

PALM SPRINGS, via Hulu.

Premise is similar to GROUNDHOG DAY, as in being stuck in a time loop and re-living the same day all over again. Except its during a wedding.

Pretty decent considering its an Andy Samberg movie (loved him on SNL and his songs with Lonely Island, but his movies are hit or miss).

For the tv fans out there, the bride and groom are the actors who play Veronica on RIVERDALE, and Superman on the CW DC shows. But they are not the main characters. JK Simmons is also in it, and pretty much steals the show whenever he is on-screen.

ICE STATION ZEBRA (1968)

Surfed into it on TCM, and stuck with it to the end. Actually my first time seeing it start to finish in one go.

Hasn’t aged well. Its Cold War dynamics are very simplistic. That the whole thing was shot on sound stages might have bothered no one in ‘68–SOP, really—but made it hard for me to sink into it.

Rock Hudson said this was his favorite of his own films, but he comes across as very wooden.

(And he may have been kidding. I saw him cite ZEBRA in a "chat" with Doris Day, in which she asked which of their films together was his favorite. He said ICE STATION ZEBRA, and she laughed.)
