Good to see Stephanie Beatriz from Brooklyn Nine-Nine starring in a movie.

The Light of the Moon

Bonnie, a young and successful Latina architect, is sexually assaulted while walking home from an evening out with friends in Brooklyn. At first, she attempts to keep the assault a secret from her long-term boyfriend Matt, but the truth quickly emerges. Bonnie emphatically denies the impact of what has just happened to her. She fights to regain normalcy and control of her life, but returning to her old life is more complicated than expected. Her attempt to recapture the intimacy she previously had with Matt falters and cracks begin to surface in their relationship. Another attack in the neighborhood only drives Bonnie further into denial, before an encounter with an at-risk woman causes her to face the truth and confront her own self-blame.

These are great. At least the first two are. The third one is simply good.

The Cut supported by YouTube invited filmmakers to create the first official music videos for three of Elton John's classics.

Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives

Documentarian Chris Perkel catalogues the life and successes of iconic music executive Clive Davis, from his miraculous start at Columbia Records through his trailblazing work at Arista Records and J Records, with a heavy dose of outstanding music sprinkled in between. More than mere biography, The Soundtrack of Our Lives is a guided tour of cultural revolution from the '60s to the rise of hip- hop, led by a man who consistently caught the next wave before everyone else - if he didn't just create the wave himself. The Soundtrack of Our Lives will be released October 3 on Apple Music.

This is one of those unlikely subjects for a documentary but stand-ups usually make for great fodder. I'd love to watch it.

Gilbert

Legendary comedian Gilbert Gottfried has had quite the career. Rocketing to fame in the 1980s, he was thrust into the public consciousness almost immediately thanks to his brash personality, unique worldview, and off-kilter comic timing. Now, foul-mouthed and unapologetic after decades of flying solo in both his work and in his personal life, Gilbert has shockingly reinvented himself - as a family man.

WooleyI enjoyed this one for the mood and look, like most Hammer films.

Same here. It's not hard to spot a Hammer film for whatever reason. I had never heard of it but when I spotted it in the channel guide I thought with the year it was made (1971) and the title there was a good chance it was Hammer time and worth DVR'ing.

Blood from the Mummy's Tomb - 6/10 - Not one of Hammer Studios best. It certainly looks good despite the obviously low production values. This being a Hammer production they manage to work in quite a bit of blood spurting. No bandage wrapped mummies to speak of though. Just a really zaftig woman. Two women actually, both played by Valerie Leon. It also has Andrew Keir who stars in one of my favorite non-Dracula Hammer films, Five Million Years to Earth. It's worth watching if only for Ms. Leon's bountiful cleavage.

Wonder Woman - 8/10 - Goes on a little too long and the ending is yet another CGI onslaught and therefore disappointing. But Gadot turns in a confident but understated star making performance. Pine makes for an appealing love interest. They picked the right director in Patty Jenkins. Even though it contained elements that many of us had seen before it at least felt like you were watching a different kind of comic book movie. And it's getting so that any sort of distinction is welcome.

I'll be seeing it. I watched Noah, Aronofsky's last one, at a theater. When it ended the audience sat in total silence for awhile. So who knows what the fuck this will do to people. I want to be there to see it though.

RIP Mr. Stanton. As far as character actors go he and Warren Oates were in a league of their own. Once you became aware of them you noticed them in things. Always. There's an old episode of Andy Griffith where he plays the owner of a decrepit beachfront bar. Stuff like that. Kelly's Heroes, Dillinger. And Where the Lilies Bloom. Track that one down if you haven't watched it. It's one of those, overlooked and all around good movies. And Stanton turns in such a quiet and understated performance as a decent, misunderstood man.
