    Saw a beautiful 35mm print in theatre 4 at South Lamar. Colors popped and it was played loud. It was almost a religious experience.

    ★★★★

    Watched on DVD. Really enjoyed this odd road/buddy movie about DeNiro as a bounty hunter trying to get a fugitive cross country while avoiding the Feds and the mob and even another bounty hunter. Has a wild Keystone Cops style score from Danny Elfman that I'm still not sure what I think about. But the film itself is very funny and entertaining. A great popcorn flick.

    ★★★★½

    Watched on DVD. Easily one of the best films to drink to. A noir-ish mystery where the mystery takes second billing to the witty banter of Nick and Nora Charles, played effortlessly by Powell and Loy. A fantastically quotable film, but the lines are so fast-paced that they're frequently lost under the next lines or the audience's laughter at previous ones. Takes a few viewings to catch everything, but it's well worth your time. The mystery kind of fizzles, but I love the finale with Nick shooting almost completely in the dark.
