That just got me hard.



Witness for the Prosecution

Charles Laughton is awesome in this film. The twist at the end wasn't as surprising as I thought it would be but it was a great courtroom drama punctuated by great performances.

4/5

The Killing Fields

A disjointed mess of a film that survived and struck a chord with me strictly because of the powerful and true depiction of what happened and the performance of Haing S. Ngor. The fact that he wasn't an actor but relying on feelings of his own suffering from the war was a beautiful and powerful thing to watch. It saved the movie for me.

3/5



Renaissance

A gorgeous pile of meh.

2/5



Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf

Well, there it is. That was the single greatest performance I've ever seen by an actress. Ever. Liz Taylor...you could win the Oscar for that role every single year. Amazing. The whole cast was amazing actually which is why they all got nominations and awards. It was like three incredible performances punctuated by a legendary one. Hell, all four of them should have won that year. Just incredible. I wouldn't be surprised if this film was the inspiration for Polanski's "Carnage" because they're almost one in the same but Woolf is so much heavier and just powerful. Really deep and profound film. Loved it.

Lynch/5

I've been on a Western kick recently and I finally watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. I just don't know what to think about it. The meat of the movie was great, but WHAT were they thinking with the soundtrack? Raindrops are Falling On My Head? While Butch is doing bike tricks to impress his girlfriend? What...happened...

So there's all that interspersed with some of the best Western action I've seen...so yeah...I just don't know...

That scene is one of the most notorious "what the hell?" scenes in film history. It's pretty much just ignored when talking about the film now.

There were a few other questionable soundtrack moments, but I'm not surprised it's ignored now. The rest of the movie was pretty damn good.

3/5
Haing S. Ngor was subsequently murdered in the US. A raft of elaborate motives were put forward, but it seems to have been due to his role in the film.

Does anybody here use One Channel to stream? Has it recently been nerfed?

I finally have some time to enjoy film, and now I have no place to find any.
