I guess it's time to start the usual countdown as to when Hazel shows up again. Under a week of course but will it be four days? Five?

Heh. It's like that MASH episode. Hazel is our 5 O'Clock Charlie.

John Wick 2 ?nearly an 8 but not quite. I liked it but I think I liked the first one a little more. Maybe because it was new, But I felt the first one had a certain sound pattern to the gun play that I liked better. ?I could be mis-remembering. But also he is so unstoppable and god like I don't know where you go with the next movie because it would be ridiculous.I was already John Wick vs. all the mercenary assassins in the world. Now what?

Creature from the Haunted Sea - 3/10 - This one at least knows it's bad. It's a Roger Corman film and they try and have fun with it. A lot of winks to the audience. But the monster kind of looks like a live action Homer Simpson covered in seaweed with an indeterminate bottom half like they ran out of material and wrapped felt around it. The story is just gonzo but it was written by Robert Towne who plays Secret Agent XK160 and went on to become a really successful screenwriter and sometime director in Hollywood. Half the hour long film is spent on a supposedly deserted island which is bizarrely crawling with people. It's so dumb and silly that it's almost fun to watch.

Mmmm, femme fatale.

El Dorado (8/10)

Yeah it's a pale imitation of Rio Bravo but it's still damn good enough.

The Lego Batman Movie - 4/10

Wow, that was disappointing. Lego Batty was easily my favorite thing in TLM, but he proves unable to carry his own flick. I don't think I laughed even once during the whole thing. Film looked damn good, though.

Deepwater Horizon - 7/10 - With previous films like The Kingdom, Friday Night Lights, and even Battleship, director Peter Berg has shown he knows his way around an action scene. But there's an awful lot of setup before the film kicks into gear. It's mostly spent on Mark Wahlberg's character and there's also a lot of technical jargon when they get to the oil platform. Your enjoyment of the movie will depend on how accepting you are of both of these things. But it does have Kurt Russell and he's one of those actors that can elevate any movie. And John Malkovich makes for a great villain (of sorts), even though his setup doesn't fully pay off IMO. But once it does get to the actual disaster it goes from an okay film to a really solid one.

Harlan County U.S.A. (1976) - 8.5/10

I had never heard of this movie before. If you like documentaries, give it a try.

Excellent film, and one of the most important from that era of social documentary, with the likes of the Maysles, Wiseman, Blank, Pennebaker. This one is Barbara Koppel's best.

Murder! (1930) Continuing on my journey through Hitchcock's early films, we have another take on his usual theme of guilt and innocence in this film. The film starts with a murder, and the neighbors finding Diana (Norah Baring), a young actress, standing by the body of the deceased, blood on her clothes and murder weapon at her feet. Most people are quick to condemn her, but a popular actor that had met her before, Sir John (Herbert Marshall), has his doubts. Serving as part of the jury, he is not convinced, but is forced to vote "guilty" by his peers. Overcome by guilt after the trial, he embarks on an investigation to try to clear Diana's name.

I found Murder! to be quite compelling and entertaining, as well as breezy despite lasting almost two hours. Both of the leads are solid, and despite being somewhat unpolished and rough, it features some nice camera tricks by Hitchcock. Some of the plot twists end up being quite contrived, which wasn't rare in his films, but the overall package is solid. As a film, it is a solid one; as an early look at the Master's work, it was very interesting. Grade: B+

King Rat - 7.5/10 - Good movie. On par with something like Stalag 17 even thought they're somewhat different. They both feature hustlers in the focal roles though. But the central theme of class distinction is new.

Huh, I'm surprised. I just saw it the other night and I really liked it. I actually thought in some ways it elevated the character and his history.

John Wick: Chapter Two - About on par with the original, makes up for lost freshness with more world-building (absurdly so (but fun absurdery)) and intriguing style (the mixture of Gothic and mythic production design). Keanu meeting his match in Common makes for a very tense second quarter of the film. This is supposed to be the middle of a trilogy, but I'd be perfectly happy if Keanu and co. pumped out a new one of these every two to three years. B+
