The movie is I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang, in which a WWI veteran is imprisoned in the USA and escapes with much more story to follow. There are plenty of outdoor scenes mixed with the indoor scenes, which keeps things more interesting from a Time Traveler's perspective.

What I like about some of these old movies filmed in, or near, the era the story is about is that you really get a feel for the times. The technology, the living conditions, the clothing, the language, and mannerisms of those days. Films made many decades later that are set in old times sometimes come across as merely high budget costume melodramas that could be set in any decade. Whereas when a movie is made in the time it is set in, that movie can be a snapshot of that time.

This movie from 1932 was pre-code and therefore a bit more closer to real life than movies that followed it through the later '30s, '40s, and '50s. Of course, films aren't really close to real life, but you'll have to watch it to see what I mean.

Since I've never seen this movie before, my appreciation for it is perhaps higher than if I had seen it years before.
I'll give it 8.5 out of 10 stars.
Fantastic movie! I saw it decades ago and loved it, but I need to look it up again and make my kids watch it.

Talk about your pre-code movies ... Have you watched "Freaks" (Tod Browning, 1932 - not whatever came out a couple of years ago)? Completely worth it.

Her (2013). A balance of sadness and happiness supported by a great screenplay by Spike Jonze. I canít s recommend it enough

The Dirt Bike Kid (1985), came up under 'recommended for you' on YouTube. Must have missed this one growing up. Corny, but in a good way.

6.5

Mad Max.

The 2nd one, I'd give it a 6.0 (IMDB scale)

This scene was priceless, and the memes are self explanatory!

Blood and Money (2020).

Not a lot of dialogue, but there didn't need to be.

I watched Airplane! for the first time in a long time. I don't think I've seen the full movie since it was in the theater. Probably, along with Blazing Saddles, one of the first genre parody movies. Holds up ok. 7.5/10.

I saw Da 5 Bloods on Netflix. I thought it could have been a little tighter and the history lesson less obvious. 7/10

Bad Boys For Life. Expected more than I got. It was ok, but not even as good as 2nd one, and people generally didnt like 2nd one that much.

I dont generally tend to stop watching movies half way through, but this one I did. I just got bored of it, and couldnt do it any more. Some descent parts, but overall it left much to be desired.

A Bridge Too Far (1977) on Netflix. Great scene with James Caan and a 1911.

Great cast: Sean Connery, Ryan O'Neal, Gene Hackman, Michael Byrne, Dirk Bogarde, Edward Fox, Michael Caine, Anthony Hopkins, (as mentioned James Caan), Colin Farrell (must have missed him), Maximilian Schell, Liv Ullman, Laurence Olivier, Elliott Gould, Robert Redford, Denholm Elliott (Raiders of the lost Ark), and lots more recognized but their names escape me. Even the postman from Cheers.

No cgi. No drone shots.

Film Review: A Bridge Too Far 1-1-18

eleven C-47 aircraft and dropped 1000 parachutists, including paratroopers from the British and Dutch armies.

Hidden Fortess 1958 Director Kurosawa. Great movie!

As some of you may know, this movie was part of the inspiration for Star Wars.

I watched The Limey last night. Improbable and implausible in many regards, but an entertaining and very well done movie. 8 out of 10 stars.

I must be in a weird mood for goofy comedies. I watch Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Also, I don't think I've seen it since theatrical release. It's so ridiculous you have to laugh. 7/10

On the serious side, I watched Bone Tomahawk on Amazon. Horror Western. Took its time in the beginning and then got going. Kurt Russel is honing his grizzled old dude roles. 7/10

The Old Guard - How you rate it depends on how much you enjoy Charlize Theron kicking ass (or, to a lesser extent, Chiwetel Ejiofor doing his thing). Plot seems like a collage of a lot of different cliches all mixed together. Dialog isn't the greatest, some of the supporting actors are not great. A lower budget and get rid of the big names, and it'd be a direct to video movie that you'd skip over while searching for something good in the Blockbuster 20 years ago.

I was massively underwhelmed by this production. It felt like thinly veiled theft of several other already done. The plot and storyline was translucent within the first 15 minutes. The music board and it's use were poorly implemented to begin with, on top of poor choice of performance. It seemed like halfway through they could have changed to name "The Old Guard" to "The Old Gay Couple"...just not really sure what that aspect had to di with storyline this side of indoctrination. It "could have been" good. Since I sat through it, 5/10, on substance alone, less. Boo.

I know it's based on a comic book so it can't be completely "original" but I definitely felt like I saw it before. I love me some Charlize though.
