    Ok. Good action stuff! Kinda awkward w/the overacting & language switching.

    Good one! Wish I had seen it theatrically tho cuz I think it loses some of its power on small screen/home viewing.

    ★★★

    Kinda cheesy Brit film about death & dysfunctional families. Billy Connelly is great.

    The Carrie/Debbie relationship reminded me a lot of my relationship w/my mom so it was kinda hard to watch. It was so very good though.
    Losing Carrie was a genuine loss. Star Wars was the LEAST amazing thing she did. What an amazing woman.

    This was a TRULY excellent movie. So much heart, so good re: lesbian relationships, aging, marriage, and just a great FILM.
    Dukakis is STELLAR and so is Fricker. Perfectly cast. What a gem!!!

    ★★★★

    The cat (Wallach) loved it and I adored it. Great cast but I wish I had seen it when I wasn't sick. I got a little confused at the end bit due to fever, I think.  On the whole it was marvelous!

    BULLITT was amazing, even though my fever started up again during & the plot got even more labyrinthine than initially intended. I will watch again for sure. Now, back to sleep for me. Man, this illness is painful 😖
