    Last night watched "The Dig" on netflix about the discovery and excavation at the Anglo-Saxon Sutton Hoo site.

    It was inspirational; about time Brown, a self taught archaeologist, was recognized for his work.

    Ralph Fiennes was unrecognizable physically and vocally. He did a superlative job.

    White Tiger (2021)

    I really enjoyed this one, it was very gritty. It takes place in modern India, and follows the life of a poor lower-caste man from the countryside, who serves a wealthy higher-caste man as a driver.

    I recommend it.

    Watched "Il Processo", The Trial, on netflix last night. It's good; even the English subtitles are good. Nice to hear some accents from Emilia/Toscana, although there are others.

    Ed. Finished it. I can't say enough about Vittoria Puccini's work; she's an excellent actress. All of the cast did a superlative job, especially Scianna, as he always does, but she was just wonderful. I felt her every emotion yet never was she overacting, nor was her face particularly mobile; indeed, she has a stillness to her, a serenity to her face. Yet, through subtle changes in her face, her body movement, and particularly through the expressions in her eyes she draws you in. Rarely do I cry at police or judicial procedurals, but I did this time.

    They also managed, through skillful editing and cutting and flashbacks to introduce a dynamism often missing from courtroom dramas, and the sizzling tension of the contest between the prosecutor and the defense attorney was excellent.

    Really, I can't recommend it enough.

    The Ten Commandments (1956)

    I love this movie, I watch it on TV almost every year around this time.

    I saw it on Saturday.

    For the first time in a long time I re-watched "The Passion" by Mel Gibson. In my opinion it's the finest telling of the Christ story ever filmed.

    I saw that Joseph Fiennes stars in something called "Risen". It reminds me of an old, old movie about the Centurion who led the squadron who crucified Jesus. I think it starred Richard Burton. There was also one with Paul Newman.

    I can't seem to find a way to access the "Risen". So many new cable channels are coming out wanting your monthly subscription that it's going to be difficult to see certain films.

    As of right now I'm watching Amazon (not their new movies), and subscribing to a different British channel or PBS every month. I cancelled Netflix. There's almost nothing on there for anyone over 35 with a brain imo. It's all very toxic, woke stuff too. I can't abide it.

    Passion of the Christ is excellent. I haven't seen Risen, but I will check it out.

    I completely agree about all the woke garbage on Amazon, Netflix, etc. Much of the stuff coming out today is so disingenuous, inflammatory, and stupid. The British are the absolute worst when it comes to this kind of broadcasting.

    I guess that all the Avengers series is so shallow in terms of the plot.

    I recommend tubitv.com free and legit streaming I use it to watch mostly 80's and 90's bad movies I missed out on, but they have all genres on there...

    tonight I'm going to watch Patrick Swayze (RIP) in Steel Dawn...low budget post apocalyptic Mad Max clone with samurai sword duels...

    I wouldn't recommend that at all.

    Completely agree with Jovialis' take on it above:

    "I completely agree about all the woke garbage on Amazon, Netflix, etc. Much of the stuff coming out today is so disingenuous, inflammatory, and stupid. The British are the absolute worst when it comes to this kind of broadcasting."

    I keep on getting messages from Netflix to come on back and watch our new programming...Unfortunately I can't respond the way I'd like. :)

    Probably posted this already, but just re-watched the series Band Of Brothers; it's absolutely fabulous. Saving Private Ryan is good as well, and Black Hawk Down, and The Sniper. That's all if you like war movies or series. I didn't care for The Pacific as much.

    I'm sorry to say it, but the "Many Saints of Newark" wasn't good, I didn't like it.

    I feel like they really missed a good opportunity to make a great movie, with some pointless story-lines. I won't put in any spoilers.

    I think it is at least worth seeing for yourself.

    Wow, I'm glad to get a review from someone I trust. I was about to go to a movie theater for the first time in what seems like years, but now I won't. I'll wait until it's available at home.

    What a disappointment. Do you know if David Chase was involved?

    Please don't tell me "Wokedom" reared its ugly head. I can't stand it. They're EVERYWHERE! :)

    Unfortunately, there is some Wokeness going on. Nevertheless, considering it is a movie about Newark in the 1960s, they seem to have squandered this backdrop I think. Yeah, it is David Chase, they also had a lot of great actors. I don't think they did a bad job at their parts. But I think the story was weak.

    You can see it on HBO Max.

    It feels more like a mafia-movie by Spike Lee, than a Sopranos movie by David Chase. Despite the fact that he is the director.

    Actually, this guy is the director; David Chase was just the producer:

    I figured they'd ruin it. The Golden Age of movies and tv is dead, killed and buried by political correctness. Comedy died long ago.

    I can't tell you how many films and series I've started just to turn them off in disgust. Netflix keeps on bombarding me with e-mails to "come back", but I look at the shows, and not only are they "WOKE" to the max, and therefore completely unrealistic, but they're just marketed to late teens/early 20's viewers with a taste for violence and explicit sex, or they just want content that validates the angst of being a teenager or young adult.

    Goodness knows I don't want anything bad to happen to western civilization, but sometimes I look at these people and think, you'd be the first to die, guys, if the you know what ever hits the fan, because you wouldn't know the first thing about reality or how to survive. I imagine them all like Eugene in the Walking Dead or the Mean Girls. :)

    Thank God for all my books and my DVDs is all I can say.
