    King of Thieves

    ★★

    Such a sad use of a great cast. This is the true story of the Hatton Garden Heist where safe deposit boxes were burgled for 14 million pounds.

    The thieves were a bunch of old codgers, organized by recent widower Brian Reed (Michael Caine) looking to occupy himself in his loneliness.

    Though the robbery is a success and very clever, the law is onto them in short order. They also turn on one another.

    A lot of potential hurt by a slow, boring script and people you don’t care about.

  • Undercover Girl

    Undercover Girl

    ★★★

    Alexis Smith and Scott Brady star in “Undercover Girl” from 1950.

    After her police detective father is murdered by people in the drug business, Smith, a cop herself, infiltrates the gang.

    She’s a stunning woman and gets a lot of attention.

    It’s a tough crowd, as she soon learns.

    Routine but a nice part for Gladys George, and an early one for Richard Egan.

    She has a date; she cancels it for…

    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    ★★★★½

    Aaron Sorkin wrote and directed this brilliant film about the trial of the Chicago Seven, which took place In Chicago in 1969-1970.

    The Chicago 7 were Abbie Hoffman (Sacha Baron Cohen), Jerry Rubin (Jeremy Strong), David Dellinger (John Carroll Lynch) , Tom Hayden (Eddie Redmayne), Rennie Davis (Alex Sharp), John Froines (Danny Flaherty), and Lee Weiner (Noah Robbins).

    Actually the seven represented different groups, but no matter, they were all painted with the same brush. At the Democratic Party Convention…
