Jacob's Ladder
The only Adrian Lyne's I was missing. In a filmography of hits and misses, this is definitely a hit.

The Batman
I don't know, to me it seems like this looks at Nolan's films to give a similar take on a different source material. And just as with Nolan's, it lacks the epic tragedy vibe Snyder was able to find. And yes, Pfeiffer is still my favourite Catwoman.

Barbie I wanted to know what the fuzz is all about, but yeah, after 30 minutes I just fell asleep. I don't know what they were trying to do, but for the life of me I did not get it. Shame though, because for personal reasons Greta Gerwig and Frances Ha will always have a special place in my heart. ...

Writing about Blonde: https://manueluberti.eu/2023/09/17/marilyn-avatar.html

Not nearly enough, not nearly as much as what I wanted to say, but I don't know, it's a small piece that I kept re-writing over and over again just to say the same things so I had to push it out and just leave it there.

Bus Stop
Monroe is the only thing worth saving here, but like anything from her last years she was just too much for everyone involved.

How to Marry a Millionaire
Just awful.

All About Eve Well, you don't really need me to tell you how fantastic this is. I rember studying it closely to better understand Showgirls but every time is simply a marvel. Clash by Night I've never seen this before which is absurd considering 1) Fritz Lang is behind the camera and, more importan...

The Seven Year Itch
Better than Gentlemen Prefer Blondes if you ask me, funnier at least. Wilder would do way better with Some Like It Hot, but it's undeniable how great he was at getting Monroe's natural charm.

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Far from the best Hawks and, to me, not even top 3 Monroe's, but yeah, better than I remembered.

Malum
My horror of the year? So far it sure is. Scary as hell, awesome soundtrack, jump scares and goose bumps all over the place.

Texas Killing Fields
I don't know why some say this has always been underrated. There is more than one reason for it being considered bad, and all of them are valid.

Re: TV series

The Outsider Well, well, Richard Price is behind this mini-series and after two episodes in I am already liking it a lot. I've never read the King's novel behind it, and I don't really intend to.* If the episodes keep going like the first two, though, I'll be a happy grown-up. * Don't get me wrong:...

Re: Movies, Flicks, Films, Videos, cinematography

Some Like It Hot UHD because oh yes. This is still funny and perfectly timed, with that ending which is just as good as I remembered it. Inception This is an impossible drag, no wonder the first time I got angry at the screen. Nolan has just no sense of rhythm when it comes to action sequences and,...

Niagara
As long as Monroe is on the screen it works, even splendidly at times. But when she's out I don't know, it just shows its age and becomes forgettable.

[Yes, I am home alone and not working at the moment.]

Incredible early dramatic performance by Monroe. Not on The Misfits level, but she was a different woman by then.

Re: Movies, Flicks, Films, Videos, cinematography

No Hard Feelings It begins leaning too much on that US-style of comedy which needs profanity every two other seconds to be fun, but it soon becomes a nice and simple film, good for a summer evening. It's no Adventureland but I laughed, and that's all that matters I think for something like this. Bl...
