    Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

    To start with I enjoy end of world flicks like this one is about. With plenty of star power, I guess I expected more. There were some scenes that seemed cheesy, and the final payoff was just ok. Knightly is a nice actress but this was the first film I have viewed her in that I feel she is getting into her career junction of becoming more of a character actress than a lead. What I am getting to is…

    Greatest war film this side of "Lawrence of Arabia". War is hell as the old Sherman quote goes and this flick expounds on this as each death is individualized and not just war porn. Not for the weak stomach nor the bloody anti-war crowd. I thank God my Dad, a medic in the European theater of war for the United State's army did not have to see this film. He would have understood it and would have brought back memories that needed to remain hidden. Have the blue ray copy.

    Those Who Wish Me Dead

    A movie that just does not entertain enough to keep one interested. You put Jolie in a film like this and she keeps her clothes on, what a waste. Very unlikable characters do not help. Slow, violent, and it was hard to finish. The crapper of the month of May of 2021. Viewed on HBO/MAX and I do not have the film nor will I add it to my extensive library. (spoiler alert: Torturing pregnant women is not good in shit shows like this)

    Finally out of the closet. Where in the fuck was I in 1974? I was 21 and how in the fuck did I miss this flick? That is a question I will have to ask myself, from now, at age 67, till I die. More to follow when I calm down.
