Bio: Am mostly into old and/or European films. Low tolerance for Hollywood and mainstream modernity. I don't rate a title unless I've watched the whole thing (or at least tried to, in the case of a few stinkers) and don't rate from distant memory either.

"Interesting/strange movie. Alec Guinness was an amazing actor."

"A poetic film with nice imagery. Very melodramatic and definitely a chick flick, but I still enjoyed it. "
50 16% Man's Castle (1933) - Jun 02, 2018
"Enjoyed this until I realized an unspoken theme of the film, apparently condoned by the filmmakers: they 'shack up' & are sleeping together before marriage, with predictable results. Their immorality was reflected in real life as Young & Tracy began a year-long affair, even though Tracy was married with children and both supposedly Catholic. Tracy's character was also too much of an a-hole. Lots to like though. Very unique and fun otherwise. This film could have been great - it's too bad. "

"Unique and well shot, but quite a few yawns in there."
90 80% The Italian (2005) - May 18, 2018
"Best film I've seen in quite a while. Directed by Andrey Kravchuk, who went on to do (the equally great, but very different) "Admiral". Handsomely shot and impressively acted, especially by six-year old Vanya (Kolya Spiridonov). It's sometimes difficult to watch, depicting the harsh life of boys in an orphanage, but ultimately has a great life-affirming theme advocating motherhood. Definitely not a Hollywood production."
70 37% Blessed Event (1932) - May 13, 2018
"Were we supposed to like this Al Roberts guy? In any case, a fun and occasionally fun-ny early talkie. Not nearly as 'raunchy' as people seem to wish it was. Loved the old dictation machines he was using with the wax cylinders."
