  • The Caine Mutiny

    The Caine Mutiny 1954

    ★★★★½ Watched 17 May, 2015

    Always cool and always in control Humphrey Bogart is anything but those things in the excellent The Caine Mutiny.

    When Lt. Cmdr. Philip Francis Queeg (Bogart) takes command of the Caine he finds a messy none too disciplined outfit in need of a tighter leash.

    What Dreams May Come 1998

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Aug, 2014

    There is no chance I am able to write an objective review after having seen a Robin Williams film now, but who cares about objectivity at a time like this.

    Minor spoilage included, proceed at your own risk.

    I have consciously avoided What Dreams May Come since its theatrical run,but I felt like this was as good a time as any as the sad plot might prove to be something of a cathartic experience for me. The story of doctor…
