Oh, a very nice movie about the meaning of being and the futility of power and fame; with an excellent ending. I really enjoyed it.

The Ten Commandments movie with Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner. Cheesy and not even close to accurate to the biblical story, but I like it anyway.

Godzilla vs Kong

Delivers pretty much what is on the tin.
I appreciate the split. It's essentially a King Kong film with Kong literally going on a journey with Godzilla acting as a menace but when it comes time for a winner, it's Kong's movie but it's Godzilla's franchise.
"...I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." -MLK Jr.

Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)

Feeling nostalgic these days, so I've been checking out some old movies. Audrey Hepburn is graceful, George Peppard is so damned handsome, Moonriver is a beautiful song, and the racist depiction of Mr. Yunioshi is appalling.

I don't know what to say.

P.S. Also learned thanks to this movie what a "telephone dialer" is and that I would also be unable to afford anything at Tiffany & Co. So grateful that I am not into jewelry and other sparkling things. :p

Anna, by Luc Besson.

A correct and well-made movie that relies on the typical time-shifting structure to have some degree of mystery and appeal, but it's, again, more of the same. Still a much better movie than some thrillers that made more money and attracted much more people to theaters.

Angels in the Outfield (1994)

Hadn't seen it since I was a kid, saw it was on and decided to watch it for for the nostalgia. Let's just say that I liked it a lot better back then...

Ingrid Goes West.

Probably one of my favourite that I've seen in a while, it's fun watching Ingrid be a complete psycho.

I've been watching a lot of movies that I used to watch over and over again as a kid when my parents showed them. Twister, Volcano, Dantes Peak. Very good movies and I will always love them!

Godzilla vs Kong.

Beautiful to look at. Not much of a plot.
*I am a master proofreader after I click Submit.
* There is actually a War on Christmas. But Christmas started it, with it's unparalleled aggression against the Thanksgiving Holiday, and now Christmas has seized much Lebensraum in November, and are pushing into October. The rest of us seek to repel these invaders, and push them back to the status quo ante bellum Black Friday border. -Trotskylvania
* Silence Is Golden But Duct Tape Is Silver.
* I felt like Ayn Rand cornered me at a party, and three minutes in I found my first objection to what she was saying, but she kept talking without interruption for ten more days. - Max Barry talking about Atlas Shrugged
