• Monsieur Hulot's Holiday

    Monsieur Hulot's Holiday

    ★★★

    Jacques Tati's quiet, visual style of comedy is something I can look at and see that there is something resembling humor on my screen, but it never makes me laugh. I just find myself waiting for the film to be over. I'm not here saying that Tati himself is not funny at all, it's just his style of humor is not for me.

    you could say this is made for french sensibilities, but i don't believe the french are sensible!

    I used to like Teresa Wright, but I've really realized that she's not really a good actress....

    Anyway the rest of this movie is quite good, probably the best of the Best Years of Our Lives rip-offs that followed WWII, depicting wounded soldiers returning from the war having to live with their new disabilities.

    the only thing worse than mickey mouse is hundreds of mickeys in one short.

    oscar hammerstein II and richard rogers would take the idea of "evil character tries to burn down good characters" and use it for their seminal musical Oklahoma

  • The Horse's Mouth

    The Horse's Mouth

    ★★★★

    Another delightful comedy starring Alec Guinness! Guinness is most well known today as the original Obi-Wan Kenobi, and if you know him beyond that you probably know him as the main character of Bridge on the River Kwai (or his roles in other David Lean dramas). Neither of those really show what Alec Guinness does best, which I think might just be his comedic parts! Things like this, The Ladykillers, The Lavender Hill Mob, Kind Hearts and Coronets, or even later works like Murder by Death are such great examples of his range and talent, but just aren't as widely seen, which is a shame!

    The film itself is rather staid, but I really enjoyed O'Herlihy in it. Very engaging performance.

    Surprisingly good! Kerr and Mitchum are very good, simple yet potent story. Good work!

  • My Cousin Rachel

    My Cousin Rachel

    ★★★½

    Hampered by an awful Richard Burton performance, saved by a beautiful Olivia de Havilland performance <3 Gothic melodramas <333

  • The Moon Is Blue

    The Moon Is Blue

    ★★½

    i'm really shocked this didn't get a screenplay nomination, not because this is good or that it deserved one, because it doesn't, but because this film got a nomination for FILM EDITING and not screenplay when this is such a script focused film while the editing is so standard and plain and unremarkable. Like how this got in editing over The Cruel Sea and Lili while they got in adapted screenplay over this is a real headscratcher. If you liked…

  • The Star

    ★★½

    Bette is just playing a caricature. I think this might be the worst performance of hers I've seen. She's still good, of course, she's Bette, but somehow it's just not connecting. The closest she could come to phoning it in.
