    The Sentinel 1977

    ★★★½ Watched 25 Sep, 2015

    I'm in the process of moving into a new flat. Not a wise choice to watch this right now. Having second thoughts about this move, haha. Need to check out who lives at the top, that's for damn sure.

    I think I picked this film a bit randomly, and was more and more dumbfounded as one famous name after the other came up at my screen during the opening credits. "How is this not more well known?" I asked myself.…

    Cool Hand Luke 1967

    ★★★★½ Watched 18 Sep, 2015 1

    Growing up as I did in the 80s and 90s, this film is closely connected in my mind to Guns 'n' Roses' Civil War (though this was a first time watch), but my mind drifted towards Steady Rollin' by Two Gallants after the end credits. Mainly this part:
    "Well I come from the old time baby,
    too late for you to save me.
    If I remain then I'm to blame."

    I'll be back with more, so Zap won't stab me, but for now, I'll just say that Conrad Hall bossed it.

    My name is bag. Sleazebag.
    Going through the Bonds chronologically, it's "funny" to see how this sex maniac with little regard for human life, his own or his conquests, became such an icon back in the 60s (and every decade after). And how much I'd forgotten about these films.
    Here he stumbles through, amazingly remains more or less unharmed, all the while perving on every single female bum he encounters, forgetting that he is actually in quite life threatening situations.…
