Harry Callahan aka Dirty Harry is a great movie character and a perfect fit for Clint Eastwood. That scene where he stands on the bridge, looking Scorpio directly in the eyes as the bus approaches - iconic and my favorite moment in the movie. This was definitely due for a rewatch and the bluray looked crisp. Honestly, not a boring moment in this - I loved every minute.
I don't have the strength to sit down and write a proper review of this masterpiece (which it truly deserves), so this will do for now...
...Barry Lyndon is a phenomenally beautiful masterpiece with a story and pace that will take your breath away. I absolutely loved it and will probably watch it many times over the course of my life.
I feared that it wouldn't be relevant today, but this movie is about life itself, the choices we make,…
Probably the movie that I’ve rewatched the most times in my life and the only movie that I can accurately quote. I am simply never bored in the company of The Dude, Walter, Donny, Maude, Brandt, Mr. Lebowski, Bunny, Karl Hungus, Jesus, Jackie Treehorn, Knox Harrington, Woo, Smokey, Da Fino, Little Larry and, of course, The Stranger! Good times and a movie that will stand the test of time.
Long live… the Dude.
Mel Brooks was a brave man back in 1974, taking on the big studios and challenging them on what could be shown in movies. Today, I think he would have lost easily.

I had seen this movie when I was younger, but only remembered the exploding fake houses near the…
It finally happened... Hollywood managed to corrupt one of the good ones. Guillermo got his Oscar, two actually... but at what cost? I can see why people would like this movie, because who doesn't love candy? Too much of it, though, and you get sick. Giving people what you know they want is a little too safe and that's how I feel about this movie. It's a small piece of candy, nothing more.
I only have good things to say about La Dolce Vita, which swept my feet away. It is beautiful, of course, and very cinematic. Forget realism, you are about to enter the strange and wonderful world of both Marcello, the leading character, but also of Federico Fellini, the director.
Also, I dare you to watch this movie and not fall a little bit in love with Anita Ekberg. Impossible!
