Review the most recent film you've seen
I just despise Sondheim. Big Grin

One thing I would like to say I've done is attend the entire Ring cycle as it was intended to be performed.

Anyway we're gonna put the board to sleep with this shit. Seen any movies lately?

Where did you see the Ring Cycle?  I saw it in Seattle 3 (or 4?) times and in  NYC once.

A little bit of "kulcha" won't kill them.

I've been watching some older movies lately on Netflix.
The ones I liked were (n/5 stars are my rating):
All is True (2018) (with Kenneth Branagh and Judy Dench) 5/5 stars
From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China (1981) 5/5 stars
Daniel Deronda (2002)  (Hugh Dancy is Fancy ) 4/5 stars (a frontal shot would have garnered 5/5 stars)
The Hollow Crown series - Richard II (2013) (with Ben Whishaw) 5/5 stars
Like Water for Chocolate (1992) 4/5 stars
Howard's End (1992) 5/5 stars
Lillies of the Field (1963) (with Sidney Poitier) 4/5 stars
Ken Burns - The War (documentary) 5/5 stars
Anatomy of a Murder (1959) (with James Stewart) 5/5 stars
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy 5/5 stars (I like spy movies)
The Red Violin (1998) 5/5 stars

If you like I'll tell you which movies I hated.

I suspect that not many on here will care for my taste in movies.

I'm sorry, I meant I want to do it. Haven't done so yet.

Tonight I did a FF watch of West Side Story catching all of the dance scenes (awesome!) and some of the songs.
I defer to Heinrich's judgement on singing as I have no voice training and am not familiar with Broadway voices.
Still:
Ansel Elgort's singing really bored me.  More than once I cringed when he sang a certain note.
On the other hand, I really liked Rachel Zegler's singing (Maria) whom Heinrich hates.  I think she has a beautiful voice.  Also loved Ariana Debose (Anita) both for dance and acting as well as Rita Moreno (Valentina) who I believe was nominated for an Academy Award.
David Alvarez (Bernardo) kept catching my eye for his dancing (spectacular) and handsome good looks. Fancy
And as I mentioned earlier, Mike Faist (Riff) is a spectacular dancer, but I felt he didn't look the part (miscast).

The solo songs aside, I really liked Leonard Bernstein's orchestral music in the film.

Faist is a dreamboat (what the fuck was up with that accent tho? Do people sound like that in NY?). And I got the go ahead from my therapist to continue lusting after Ansel Elgort so I'm gonna. The camera really loves him.

Bernstein would have liked the boys in this adaptation, too.

I need something light, positive, and cheerful lately. So I watched this.

A bit of eye-candy but other than that, quite depressing because of the storyline. Unfortunately, it's not unrealistic just depressing.

A beautiful film.  Filmed in Bhutan with beautiful scenery.  And a cute guy. Fancy

Nominated for Best International Feature Film Oscar at the Academy Awards.

I too am a Bond fan and have been thinking about watching some of the oldies again going all the way back to Dr. No (1962) and Goldfinger (1964).
I'm not surprised to learn that they've gotten worse recently.  That's what happens when you meddle with an original idea.

Have to admit, I wasn’t enamoured either. Too long and confusing. I couldn’t care less by the end

As society changes in this era of social media (shorter attention span for example?) I suppose action films change to meet them.

Last night I watched "An American in Paris" (1951) with Gene Kelly, a contemporary with Fred Astaire.  (I love Gene Kelly.  He was a wonderful dancer in addition to Fancy )
Boy, has the world of film making changed. LOL Sad

Really enjoyed this. It's darker than the trailer makes you suspect. Still not convinced about the movie's villain, because I've always liked the character, but it was well written and convincing with great special effects.

Just watched The King's Man. Absolute pile of steaming turd of a film.

Man, I love Talking Pictures  Big Grin

Saw this the other night. I'm a huge fan of creepy, atmospheric, slightly camp British horror films from the late 60s/early 70s and this is great. Pete Walker's films in general were pretty reviled at the time, but their reputations have increased over the years and Whipcord is a fine example.

Ridiculous plot, passable acting (for the most part) and I enjoyed every minute of it. Approve

It's weird how British actors can make movies like this seem palpable.
