Films you've watched recently.

Saw Sam Mendes's wonderful Empire of Light again earlier (on DVD).Think I'd agree with a Grauniad article a fortnight or so ago which called this along with The Fablemans as among the best films of 2023 so far.
 
A great film A SF hommage to The Tempest.
"Forbidden Planet" From Imdb.......This film marked one of the first times a science-fiction project had received a large budget. The genre had rarely been taken seriously by studio executives, and sci-fi films generally received the most meager of budgets. The critical success of this film convinced many in the film industry that well-funded science-fiction projects could be successful. Film historian Ben Mankiewicz has claimed that this film's success made future big-budget science-fiction films possible.
