Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

I'm with you on the above, though I still wince when I hear how "Gloomy Sunday" gets butchered. Seen this three times now, and it gets better every time. Walken's finest hour? Discuss.

Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

Wolfgang Petersen - Outbreak (1995) Splendid spoiler-filled summary (I too have no qualms about spoiling if it's something as evidently awful as this). Were people really this susceptible in the nineties, this dumb? Did it take 9/11 for Hollywood to wake up to realism? To answer your questions with...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

Lady of the Lake just didn't work for me (see earlier review somewhere). This one did - but I do think Montomery's snidy intonation is part of the attraction. How that would sound in German I don't know. Anyway, you're better off riding a pink horse than watching https://m.media-amazon.com/images/M...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

Indeed it is - next time you come to town Henrik hop the RER A at Opéra and head east - only 15' out of Paris en route to Disneyland. Or stay on the train and end up at Marne la Vallée in homage to Rohmer's Les Nuits de la pleine lune :)
