Saw Some Like it Hot again last night.Billy Wilder's timeless comedy.Interestingly Catalan TV (TV3 ) came up with a poll,a few years ago, to rename it "Noboy's Perfect" (after the famous last line of the film).Certainly that was an improvement on the original Spanish title: "Con faldas y a lo loco."
which is/was fairly meaningless).Literally :-With skirts and being crazy" :-)

A Winter's tale -A burglar falls for an heiress as she dies in his arms. When he learns that he has the gift of reincarnation, he sets out to save her. Features Colin Farrell as the burglar, Jessica Brown Findlay as the heiress, Russell Crowe as a demon that raises him and Will Smith as Lucifer. It's not going to be every one's cup of tea, but after a slow start it developed into a captivating film full of charm and fantasy. Available on Netflix 8/10

I am legend - WTF were we thinking watching this again. Great performance by Will Smith and the dog though. 7/10
I love the story about the dog. Will Smith fell in love with the dog and asked the owners how much it would take to buy the dog. Basically giving them a blank cheque and they said No amount of money would ever make them part with their dog.

Saw Billy Wilder's The Apartment again last night.Another timeless,bitter-sweet comey with wonderful dialogue.Can't quite work out how this picked up 5 oscars in 1960 and Some like it Hot 1959 (although nominated) didn't pick up a single gong.I suppose SLIH's themes of transvestism and the mafia had something to do with it.

Two-thirds of the way through watching The Godfather trilogy. Still exceptional after pushing 50 (!) years.....

As an aside, one can see where James Caan's son in the Hawaii 5-0 TV series remake learnt his hammy acting from 🤔

I still watch 1 and 2 now and again. 3 is just O.K. in my opinion. The Godfather 1 is an absolute masterpiece.

As an aside, James Caan and Gianni Russo (playing the brother in law) had reel beef during filming. They hated each other and were both tough guys in real life. During the beating scene, Caan threw a real billy club, heavy bit of wood that hit Russo on the head. Russo also ended up with a chipped elbow, and 2 broken ribs. He said some of the body punches were real. Caan also added an extra real kick into the scene. They never spoke in real life after. But Russo went on to become a real Mafia associate, mainly picking up or delivering parcels of money.

Sinister- decent horror film, not great, not rubbish. Made me scared ( wife laughed).
Would recommend if you like that type of film

Saw Young Frankenstein again last night.My favourite Mel Brooks film (Sorry to Blazing Saddles and Producers fans) but YF is not only an affectionate hommage to John Whale's Frankenstein but also a wonderful satire in its own right.

I adore Young Frankenstein. I have one good friend who cannot resist the "Where wolf?" routine. Next time I get to see her, after all this is over, I'll have to give her the feed line for it.

And Some Like It Hot is one of my comfort movies for whenever I'm feeling down or under the weather. It's usually either that or Miller's Crossing.

Re-watched Dog Soldiers the other weekend, still a great film !

Also watched a film called A Quiet Place, unusual horror film as most of the scenes are silent. The 2nd film (not yet seen) seems to explains how the creatures came to be...

"Don't look now, but there's one man too many in this room, and I think it's you."

They did a season of Marx Brothers films at the BFI a few years ago. It was great!
