    I guess I'm an old. Kong used to be small enough to put on exhibition inside a Broadway theater. Now he's as tall as Godzilla, who kicks over skyscrapers.

    He grew up and took steroids I guess.

    Argo. Alan Arkin is great. One of my favorite lines of all time, “Argo fuck yourself.”

    My favorite John Goodman line from Argo:

    "So you want to come to Hollywood, act like a big shot...without actually doing anything?...You'll fit right in."

    If Die Hard IS/ISN'T a Christmas movie what IS/ISN'T an Easter Movie?

    Frankenstein - "HE'S ALIVE!"
    High Plains Drifter - Truly Biblical (didn't realize it doesn't qualify as a "spaghetti western" because it was filmed at Mono Lake in California and directed by Eastwood.
    The Godfather - Michael truly honors his father by joining the family business, when he could have just gone on living his life.

    I watched it too since I've got HBO Max and that was two of the stupidest hours I've seen. What was the reason for all this??? And yeah, Kong was sooo much smaller than Godzilla.

    So a story about a movie:
    A couple years ago a movie called "Point Blank" with Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo was recommended to me by Netflix. I watched it and was thoroughly entertained. Non-stop action, semi-buddy type movie that really moves - but what really hooked me was this "big bad" who was out to get Grillo was fantastic, was a nut for William Friedkin films one of which was a movie called "Sorcerer" with Roy Scheider.
    Now I must have passed on "Sorcerer" a dozen times back when video stores were a thing in the '80s. Didn't matter how late it was, how barren the shelves were, even if Roy Scheider was in it - no way was I going to watch a movie called "Sorcerer." I'll go watch Ken Wahl in "The Patriot" for a third or fourth time.
    But "Point Blank" informed me that it wasn't about some witchcraft or fantasy type plot - it was about a bunch of ex-pats with nothing left to lose transporting VERY unstable dynamite 200 miles across god-forsaken roads in some unnamed Latin America country that is on the cusp of a revolution. Yeah - I was IN. Kind of a cross between Deliverance and Treasure of the Sierra Madre. And I have to say, it is easily the BEST movie with the DUMBEST and WORST title I've ever scene. Sorcerer was the name of one of the trucks. Another bonus, Tangerine Dream did the soundtrack (as they did for the aforementioned "The Patriot)." Friedkin blamed the lackluster initial box office on opening the same weekend as "Star Wars" so yeah - I get that. But damn - worth checking out if you are looking for an overlooked gem from the '70s.

    Point Blank was solid. Check out "Wheelman" with Grillo on Netflix if you haven't already. And yeah, Sorcerer is awesome.

    Watched both "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" and "One Night in Miami" this week. Like the second one better. Interesting with they are both derived from plays.

    The first felt like a play, the second did not. I thought Chadwick Boseman kind of chewed the scenery in Ma Rainey's. The depictions of the four famous guys in Miami was spot on. It was really an interesting flick.
