    Evil Dead Rise
    Not quite as good as Alvarez's film, but still a good addition to the Evil Dead series.

    I own all the other films, so I will likely blind buy the new one, trailers looked decent.

    It could've been much stronger in several respects but I had fun and was satisfied in the end. That's about all I can ask for anymore. My girlfriend is a big fan of the older films and really loved Alvarez's film but she hated this new one for some reason. I couldn't talk her out of it or make her see any good in it so I dropped that argument real fast.

    I enjoyed Manhunter. William Petersen is really quite good in it, and I enjoyed the differences in the characterization of Will Graham in this film as opposed to Red Dragon. In this film, Graham is more tormented by his work, but in Red Dragon, the emphasis seems to be more on his intellectual curiosity about the murderers. Stephen Lang is really slimy as Lounds, and Brian Cox is a great Lecter Lecktor. Fourth Mann film I've seen after Thief, Heat and The Insider. Collateral will happen next at some point in the future.

    I love Manhunter a lot. Took me years to finally get around to it but I was thankful when I finally did.

    @mattjoes, you'll definitely want to check out Collateral as soon as you can. It's brilliant. And while it's not as beloved by most fans, Miami Vice is criminally underrated to me and ultra cool in every sense of the word.

    I concur about 'Collateral' an excellent thriller, and though not a fan of Tom Cruise, he is excellent here, the shootout at the nightclub is a belter!
    'Manhunter' has always been a favourite of mine, and you should try and check out 'The Jericho Mile' a little seen prison movie of Manns, with Peter Stauss!

    That nightclub shootout is gold. One of the finest put to film.

    I've seen parts of Collateral and I know I'll love the film when I watch it. I'm open to watching Miami Vice too.

    I recently watched Easy Money with Rodney Dangerfield. Fun film, Rodney is great in it. Like many people versed in comedy, he's also really good at playing it serious. From the rest of the cast, I particularly enjoyed the performances of Joe Pesci and Candice Azzara, an actress I wasn't familiar with but who is superb in a straight role as Rodney's wife. Manhunter's Tom Noonan is also in the movie. The film feels like it was edited down, because certain plot elements and characters (the neighbor with the dog, Jeffrey Jones' attempts to get the money) feel like they should have been explored more substantially. But it's still good fun. Would rewatch.

    This is one of the highlights of the movie.

    Manhunter keeps getting better IMO. Not only was it a solid thriller in its days, but it now adds a powerful nostalgia trip, what with the soundtrack, cinematography and cast and all. I'd say it's my favourite police procedural along with Se7en and The Silence Of The Lambs.

    Collateral was the first Mann film I saw in the theatre. I had a blast with it. It's a tense film, well shot, well acted, and very well directed. Cruise is really cool in a role that he's normally not expected to play. It's a film that keeps giving, IMO.

    Yep, that scene always makes my dad and me laugh our heads off. I find Easy Money a bit underrated. Now that you mention it, there does seem to be a lot of material that was cut off a bit. Oh well, I still laugh at the movie for what it is.

    Two Way Strech (1960)
    ti111514.jpg
    All this film needed was Terry-Thomas and Peggy Mount, and it would have felt like a roadmap of late 50's/early 60's British comedy. What we do have though is: David Lodge, Bernard Cribbins, Liz Fraser, Wilfred Hyde White, Irene Handl, Lionel Jeffries and Maurice Denham, all lead by Peter Sellers.

    Marvellous comedy. Lionel Jeffries is a hoot! This was thought to be the basis for the classic Dick Clement/ Ian LaFrenais sitcom, 'Porridge'
    You should also check out 'The Wrong Arm of the Law', also with Sellers, Jeffries and Cribbins!

    I love The Wrong Arm Of The Law. "Nosey" Parker. =)) I did wonder whether Jeffries character, Craut, was an inspiration when Mr MacKay was created.

    All three guys in the photo were also in Casino Royale.

    This reminds me to watch more Peter Sellers movies. IIRC, I'm up to 12 now but there's loads more to watch.

    The Making of Rocky vs Drago: Keep Punching Documentary film.

    A fascinating and thought provoking insight into Stallone's process and philosophy when he originally made the film and recently when he re edited the movie into what I consider far superior.

    Seeing Stallone watch Rocky IV and he is reliving every moment is a absolute joy.

    Your post made me look up how many PS movies I have. My DVD Profiler also finds twelve:

    The Ladykillers (1955)
    The Naked Truth (1957)
    The Mouse that Roared (1959)
    Never Let Go (1960)
    Lolita (1962)
    The Pink Panther (1963)
    Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Love the Bomb (1964)
    Casino Royale (1967)
    The Party (1968)
    The Return of the Pink Panther (1975)
    Murder by Death (1976)
    Being There (1979)


    Disclaimer: I'm afraid I haven't even watched all of them so far, although some of them date back to 2003. But I've seen most, at any rate.

    The second to fourth on the list as well as The Party and Murder by Death are on DVD. The others on BD. I need to find an affordable BD of The Party and MBD and I'll replace them instantly. Two of my favourite nonsensical comedies, of the LMAO type.

    Also, based on the recommendations above, I ordered The Wrong Arm of the Law today. Two Way Stretch is not available on BD, and I try to avoid buying regular DVDs any more.

    The Party is an absolute favourite of mine. One of the best comedies ever made, in my opinion. It's a crazy comedy, and probably not entirely politically correct in today's climate. But "birdie num-num" gets me every time.

    "We have a saying in India." "Yes?" "Yes." "Well?" "Well what?" Priceless, and I don't care if it's no more politically correct. Sellers is playing a fake and stereotypical Indian, no doubt, but he's the guy gathering sympathies all during the movie, and why should any Indian complain?

    Whaaaat? Judging by your list, you haven't seen Dr. Strangelove, not even in part, and aren't looking forward to it? That must be an oversight on your part. Probably my favourite Kubrick movie (subject to change every half hour or so), but Ken Adam's War Room alone is worth watching it (the rest is too). And Peter Sellers, as usual, steals the entire show.

    Sellers is one of my favorite actors, everything from the Goons to Being There.

    I bought Dr. Strangelove in 4K last year absolutely amazing film. Check out the The Mouse that Roared, Sellers was the natural successor to the genius that was Alec Guinness who both appeared in the brilliant The Ladykillers which i also have in 4K.

    Strange, isn't it? Might there be someone apart from me that, of the Sellers filmography, is looking forward to watching Where Does It Hurt (a cheap, little known and not well-regarded film) but not Dr. Strangelove? I'm just that way, I guess!

    All this film needed was Terry-Thomas and Peggy Mount, and it would have felt like a roadmap of late 50's/early 60's British comedy. What we do have though is: David Lodge, Bernard Cribbins, Liz Fraser, Wilfred Hyde White, Irene Handl, Lionel Jeffries and Maurice Denham, all lead by Peter Sellers.

    All three guys in the photo were also in Casino Royale.

    This reminds me to watch more Peter Sellers movies. IIRC, I'm up to 12 now but there's loads more to watch.

    I am more of a Terry-Thomas fan, but I have seen a few films with Sellers in.

    The Wrong Arm Of The Law
    Two Way Stretch
    I'm Alright Jack
    The Naked Truth
    The Pink Panther
    A Shot In The Dark
    Return Of The Pink Panther
    The Pink Panther Strikes Again
    Revenge Of The Pink Panther
    The Ladykillers
    Casino Royale
    Murder By Death
    The Millionairess

    One Sellers film that I have long wanted to see, is Only Two Can Play, as it was filmed down my neck of the woods.

    The King of Comedy (1982). A underrated Scorsese movie. Fun, and with a bit of a message: keep yourself in control. As my dad says, Scorsese always has a great music soundtrack. Two other people who can always say the same are Quentin Tarantino and (controversial opinion) Adam Sandler. Overall, I enjoyed it and recommend it.

    This film was difficult to obtain. Therefore, I embraced my inner Indiana Jones and did an archeology hunt for this: the Holy Grail of Lana Turner movies.............

    Marriage_Is_a_Private_Affair-350079716-large.jpg

    I loved every frame and rank this one quite high alongside her other wartime classics.

    And speaking of "girls in sweaters", I watched THE ASPHALT JUNGLE again today (while waiting for the repairman to arrive). What a film!!!
