Burnt Offerings (Dan Curtis, 1976)

A family rents a mansion for the whole summer for only $900. Why is the rent so low? Because it's a house of horrors! This movie has good acting (Karen Black, Oliver Reed & Warren Betty). A lot of things are hinted, but ultimately very little is explaned. This is a solid creepy movie and even a precursor of Kubrick's The Shining.

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

So you mean that there's something worse than waking up with a neck crick after falling asleep on the furniture?

Speed (1994) w/ Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Dennis Hopper, and Jeff Daniels - good role for Keanu (i.e. not much speaking), one of my fav ladies, Bullock; and a devilish performance by Dennis Hopper - Oscars for 'Best Sound' and 'Sound Effects Editing' - be prepared for one precarious action scene after another.  Recommended if your into this genre and for Hopper's character.  Dave :)

Quote
Speed is an action thriller film directed by Jan de Bont. The film stars Keanu Reeves, Dennis Hopper, Sandra Bullock, Joe Morton, and Jeff Daniels. It is about a bus that is rigged by a mad bomber: the bus bomb will arm itself once the bus reaches 50 miles per hour and it will explode if the bus subsequently drops below 50 miles per hour. Released in June, 1994, it became critically and commercially successful, grossing $350.4 million on a $30 million budget and winning two Academy Awards, for Best Sound Effects Editing and Best Sound, at the 67th Academy Awards in 1995.

     Recently I watched I'm Thinking Of Ending Things. Yet, here I am.

     The Everest of the Charlie Kaufman range is Synecdoche, N.Y.. In human terms it's certainly one of the most unwatchable films ever made. Highly recommended.

Yeah, that movie messed me up real good. But I haven't seen it since I was about 17. I have a feeling it would hit a lot harder to watch today, now that I've experienced for myself a little bit of what the film is about (the stuff about the passage of time, especially).

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) w/ the usual actors + Catherine Hicks (as Gillian, the 20th century whale biologist) - by far, my favorite of the 'movie Star Treks' for its humor and time travel - more HERE - got Susan to even watch and she enjoyed - highly recommended!

The Ghost Breakers (1940) w/ Bob Hope, Paulette Goddard, Willie Best, Anthony Quinn, and many others - a funny classic Hollywood 'horror-comedy' w/ Willie Best in great stereotypic form for the era - more HERE - wife even enjoyed this one - a new BD arrival to replace an old DVD-R.  Also highly recommended.  Dave

It's an entertaining outing. And very few films of any sort feature nuclear wessels...

Got the Bluray and watched after for only the second or third time, the first being around when it came out. One of my favorite movies of all time.

Back when I watched it I did get some suspicions for a brief period of time (at least until we took a trip out of state), and eventually I heard that there are actually enough people with this severe thinking disorder to make this an actual known "thing."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Truman_Show_delusion#:~:text=The%20Truman%20Show%20delusion%2C%20informally,are%20being%20watched%20on%20cameras.

And although logically it doesn't resonate at all, definitely still that feeling resonates, the feeling of not being the same as other people and perceiving the fakeness of reality- which it captures well, I guess is the best way to put it.

I just finished watching Knives Out.



Hmm. It was kind of fun (my favourite single moment was describing a will reading as like a community theatre production of a tax return), but it never really quite gelled into a complete whole. A lot of the time I felt like I was just supposed to watch the mechanics play out without being fully engaged. Twists didn't quite have the sense of being a twist.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Stalag 17 (1953) w/ William Holden, Robert Strauss, Peter Graves, Otto Preminger; Billy Wilder, director; much more HERE for details. Nominated for 3 Oscars w/ Holden winning for 'Best Actor' - Robert Strauss as 'The Animal' is outstanding (Supporting Actor nominee).  The television series Hogan's Heroes (1965 to 1971) was based on a similar Stalag - highly recommended.  Dave :)
