And Goebbels was a weasel - with looks to match, as well as in character. Ah, but they all were.

Rommel may have been the only non-thug --who played Rommel in the movie?

It is a history of whiskey, the army, miners, militia, temperance women, and the Indians in the old west.This story having been told and re-told many times over the years, has NOTHING to do with reality and is just fun to watch again after 50 years.

[QUOTE=floyd;779187]Watch "Explorers" and "Mars Attacks"
Warning... Involves illegal aliens.
Both great movies for the whole family!

I love Mars Attacks. When I watch movies, I want to be entertained, either by comedy or action that is not deep. I get enough of deep in real life. Mostly, my favorite movies are the ones the reviewers pan

For SciFi fans, the best movie in the last half decade is Arrival.
And its free now on Pluto TV (but with too many commercials).
There is some political commentary in it, but no mention of Trump.

I agree, and now that you reminded me of it I put it on my list to watch again.
FWIW I'm a lifelong scifi addict.

On a dreary rainy day stuck inside, I'd select Spaceballs to lighten the mood

Nearly anything Science Fiction draws my attention. Do you realize the 1st Alien movie is now 41 years old?

Coming soon to a computer or smart TV near you. Americans in it will be coming into close contact with surfaces no human has ever touched - except for Fred Willard, maybe. They will wear their masks, er, helmets.

F-r-e-d-d-d....!!

I totally agree! (The 2008 remake was a huge disappointment.)

Also the original Manchurian Candidate with Frank Sinatra. (The 2004 remake was another huge disappointment.)

Also: The Grapes of Wrath. (I don't believe there has been a remake, fortunately.)

Gravity was very good. Avatar was really good.

For martial arts aficionados: IP Man, with Donnie Yen. Considered The Best Martial Arts film of All Time by some critics (including me.)

With the kids or grandkids: The Princess Bride. The Neverending Story.

TV series: Wonderfalls. Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me. (All are kind of quirky, but superb.)

I'm doing a lot of reading, which isn't any different that before the pandemic.

My son once asked me when he was a teenager: "Why should I read a book when I can watch the movie?"

I replied: "When you read the book the author's words and ideas are plugged directly into your brain, and you interpret the words into scenes and dialog in your mind. When you watch the movie, it is first interpreted by the screenwriter, then the screenplay is interpreted by the director, then each character is interpreted by the actor playing the role, then the entire film is interpreted by the editor. The movie is never exactly what the original author intended, and is seldom better than the book."

Oscar Wilde said: "If a book isn't worth reading twice, it isn't worth reading at all."

I think that applies to many movies as well. All of the movies and TV shows I've mentioned I've watched at least twice, except for the disappointing remakes, which weren't worth watching at all.
