SiCKO.

8.5/10. Less Michael Moore than his usual movies. Fantastic movie, and really heartbreaking. His contrasts with other countries were very well done. Especially the bits he filmed in France - I have a feeling most Americans have no idea of what continental European lifestyle is like. I also really liked the underlying theme of how we can live perfectly well without making millions of dollars per year. It's a nice subtext that rears its head a few times in the film. Some of the Canadian stuff was slightly exaggerated (I for example, have waited in ERs for as long as 2 hours, whereas most people he interviewed said 30-45 minutes. Then again, he was in Windsor and not a major urban area, so perhaps some leniency is required).

Definitely worth watching. It's not a political film, it's a question of morality. And pay good attention to when the American expats in Paris start talking about what constitutes family values - very, very astute.

7.5/10. Well done and entertaining. Also well acted. I don't know if Hansen was that creepy in real life, but he certainly was in the film. I was uneasy watching him.

Rocky Balboa 4/10

Dialogue was brutal.

Rocky changes a light bulb on Little Marie's porch.

46 seconds later ....

"Yo Little Marie .... Let there be light."

I actually thought the dialogue in Balboa was a lot less "stupid" then most of the dialog in the first 5 films.

Silent Rage

Here's the Sports Guy's spot-on overview of this movie:

Quote:
Imagine if you took "Halloween," moved it to Texas, added some karate and science fiction, then exchanged Chuck Norris for Donald Pleasance.

That can't miss, right? Well, it happened. Chuck plays a Texas sheriff stuck with Flounder from "Animal House" as his partner, plus a girlfriend who's such a bad actress, you start rooting for her to get killed about 45 minutes into the movie (especially because she already had her nude scene). And he's chasing down a homicidal serial killer who's been brought back to life by the demonic Ron Silver ... and now he can't be killed, no matter how many times he falls out of buildings or gets run over by cars.

I kid you not ... this is an unbelievable movie. It's just good enough that you're thinking, "Wow, this is pretty damn good," and then Chuck has to act, which pushes things to a whole other level. In one scene, he's so wooden that he actually catches fire. Have I mentioned there's karate? And Flounder from "Animal House"? Great ending, too. When I attended the "Ali" premiere two years ago, I sprung a "Silent Rage" question on Ron Silver, who quickly responded, "The guy who wouldn't die!" Even he loved this movie, and he got choked to death in it. Just see it.
Well I did see it, and it's one of the best worst movies I have ever seen, essential Norris cinema other than Delta Force and Sidekicks. Good for a laugh

** out of ****

Another classic I've been meaning to see

Love story - unlike the overlong Gone with the wind, this one lives up to the hype. The thin - and good looking back then - Ryan O' Neal and especially Ally Sheedy carry this film. Despite their class differences they manage to live together and get married when life intervenes via terminal illness. The last half hour or so really makes this movie.
"Love means never having to say you're sorry." 10/10

In her majesty's secret service - Lazenby gets ragged on as Bond, but this is one of best movies in the series, next to For your eyes only, Goldeneye and Casino Royale (I haven't seen all the Connery Bond movies yet). He is less annoying than Timothy Dalton. J. Bond says he'll quit his job and he gets married in this one.
Blofeld - played by Telly "Kojak" Savalas - , his archnemesis, almost gets killed by him but ultimately the revenge is his. Really a ending of a Bond movie. 7/10

That is actually a good one, but Goldfinger, From Russia with Love, and The Spy Who Loved Me are better

That's cool you liked Love Story, I couldn't stop laughing at how cheesy it was though.

I saw Never say never and Diamonds are forever so far out of the Connery Bonds. Local TV is showing all the Bond movies so I'll be cathing up on those soon. Not blown away by the "the ultimate Bond" Connery so far.
I'd rank them 1. Moore, 2. Brosnan (had the bad luck of bad scripts), 3. Craig * , 4. Connery**, 5.Lazenby, .............................. Dalton.
* He only did one Bond movie so far, only a temporary position. ** May change as I have yet to see all his Bond movies.

Once you see the rest of the Connery flicks, you'll see why he's the best. I'd rank it like this:

Connery
Craig
Moore
Brosnan
Lazenby
Dalton

I enjoyed Casino Royale more than any Roger Moore flick, except The Spy Who Loved Me. Goldeneye is the shit, but after that Brosnan was all style, no substance. Try sitting through any of his other Bond movies without falling asleep.

Perhaps.
I guess I prefer the elegant agent/charming womaniser portrayal (as done by Moore or Brosnan) over the tough secret agent (as done by Connery or Craig or Dalton).

That said I really enjoyed Casino Royale (it's almost hard to compare it to the others as it has no gadgets. Maybe License to kill comes closest). Craig is definitely my favourite tough/kick-butt Bond, and possibly the best actor so far. I just think in the seducing/womaniser Bond acting Moore and Brosnan are better.

Yes, Goldeneye was a good start, Brosnan was a victim of poor scripts IMO. Compare his movies to Moore movies, who portrayed Bond in a very similar way. Much better stories.

You're right when it comes to the different types of Bonds, but Connery's Bond does get a lot of ass in his movies.
