RIP Brewmeister Smith from Strange Brew

Perfect casting choice. Also always loved that SB is an Hamlet adaptation too. Might just be my favorite comedy of all time.

Still have never seen Seventh Seal, by the time I was getting into film it was already such a meme that I never made it a priority to watch it. At the same time it seems like something that would resonate more seeing now that I'm twenty some years older.

More of a deep cut MVS favorite of mine would be Dreamscape. Totally freaked me out seeing it as a kid in the mid 80s, then watched it again recently & it totally holds up.

He was great in Minority Report too. And, of course, as the Three Eyed Raven.

Always remembered Max Van Sydow from 'Three Days of the Condor', but in recent years I've been watching tons of old movies and enjoyed him in both 'The Emigrants' and 'The New Land', as well as 'The Desert of the Tartars'.

Saddened to hear that he has passed.

I used to show Three Days of the Condor in an Intro to Film for Non Majors class. They all hated it but thought it was cool The Three Eyed Raven was in it.

I saw 1917 and was really impressed with all the long tracking shots. It certainly gave the film a different feel.

I can't believe someone else came up with this. I actually texted that to two of my brothers today. We all loved that movie. I still laugh just thinking about Max Von Sydow and what he must have thought as he made the film.

Oddly enough, I always think of 'Hannah and Her Sisters' when I think of Max Van Sydow.

Surprisingly, The Seventh Seal has a sense of humor. It's certainly not a joyless slog. Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey wasn't that big a leap.

I suppose it's worth noting that The Seventh Seal is a plague movie.

Not sure if it is "must-see", but Frozen II is going to be on Disney+ on 3/15 -- three months ahead of schedule.

Does anyone else want to watch Cats just to see how bad it is?

Apparently getting stoned doesn't even make the movie good. Just ask Seth Rogen.

There are 10 must-see movies right there. The Kurosawa/Mifune combination represents one of the true pinnacles of film-making.

Knocking some films off my bucket list given the stay at home order.

Last week I knocked off the Soviet 7 hour War and Peace film series. The whole series is huge with thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, of extras. It has to be one of the largest productions ever mounted.

What's more, it's really good too.

For Whatever reason I laughed my ass off the first time I saw that movie.

I also took it upon myself to try to watch this series of films a couple months ago. I've managed to watch the first three, one to go. Definitely not something to watch all in one sitting, but yes, extremely impressive. I've heard that adjusted for inflation, it is the most expensive production ever, costing $700 million in today's dollars.

I actually really enjoyed part II, 'Natasha Rostova' the most. Lyudmila Saveleva had a great performance in that one.

Bondarchuk's 'Waterloo' from 1970, starring Rod Steiger as Napoleon and also featuring Christopher Plummer, is another spectacle featuring more amazing battle sequences.

I can't really watch anything "good" because we only have one TV and my wife will fall asleep within 15 min. She did make it through Knives Out and Jojo Rabbit without a problem though [smile]

Would like to catch up on some stuff eventually. We saw Booksmart the other day and I thought it was really good. It will never appear on Criterion but it's pretty dang funny.

Best of Enemies

Saw it in the theater, loved it.

Knew my wife would like it (she wasn't with me when I watched it in the theater, MAN, do I miss going to the movies), so since we have FREE showtime currently, we watched it last night. She loved it, and I enjoyed it for a second time.

If you haven't seen it yet, it is worth your time.

I was privy to a preview screener of Amazon's THE VAST OF NIGHT recently. I think it's a very effective genre film with great attention to time period and a lot of style. If you like something like The Twilight Zone of old radio drama science fiction, or heck just like Orson Welles' War of the Worlds, I think you'll like this a lot.
