That's always been one of my favorites.

I watched a good "oldie" last night:

Reign of Terror (1949) (also goes by the title "The Black Book")

I particularly enjoy movies about historical events. This movie is about the French Revolution. The leader, Robespierre, has a "Black Book", that contains all the names of people he has decided to execute. The movie revolves around covert attempts to obtain the book, which would obviously have very negative consequences for Robespierre.

Thanks. Gonna look this one up.

Broke out my Bullitt BluRay yesterday.

Take out the car chase and it still stands on merit. Detailed medical room scenes, police procedures, etc.

Love it.

Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith

So five months later and I've finally made it up to Clone Wars where Episode 3 kicks in. The subtext of Clone Wars really does help the movie work. I always felt it was rushed and underdeveloped and now I can just enjoy it as a finale to something with seasons of build up.

Really I only have nitpicks for Episode 3 when compared to the first two prequels. Anakin still has a bad actor. The ending still doesn't work. The birthing scene just kinda sucks and the whole 'NOOOO' thing is still pretty dumb. Its so very mechanical compared to the rest of the movie as if it only exists to set up the other movies and in no way makes the current movie better. But overall, the Star Wars geeks are right. This is the 'good' prequel movie. But only because of Clone Wars giving everything meaning.

B

I guess there is still more Clone Wars after this.

Sands of Iwo Jima. My dad has always been a huge John Wayne fan and since it was Memorial Day, I figured one of my first movies of his I'd watch would be this one (been getting more interested in older movies over the past few years compared to the more recent ones). I would've watched The Longest Day but it isn't available to stream. But still, I didn't regret watching this at all as I thought it was a good war movie worth checking out.
The Longest Day was a great movie. I saw it with my Dad as a teenager, maybe early sixties. We went into Radio City Music Hall to see it.
