      • Yes, there are some very good ones of Spanish cinema lately, saw one last night called in English “Boy Missing” (Secuestro in Spanish) from 2016…a good one. Also “The Legacy of the Bones” (supposedly a trilogy) the first part was called the “Silent Watcher”, I think, in English but the third part is pending Phase 3 here in Spain. All the best,

      The Knievel one is good. I’ve seen a few on him but this gives a real taste of what a different cat he was. The Morgan doc was all new to me. I knew his music but .. what a story. Really liked the Coltrane one. Worth watching on my end. Later HMO.

    Now that is a lot of movies and quite a variety. I would love to see the Knieval one as I loved him back in the day. I had the toy motorcycle. And Tremors, man, I always seem to stop the searching when I come across that one on TV no matter how many times I’ve seen it. A bunch on here I want to see and a few I already have.

      I wont ruin the Evel doc but they go into the action figure thing. So much off the wall behavior. An original crazy man. I would say that you’d like the film. I sure did.
      Tremors. I cant put into words why I like it but I do. Had a few laughs. Never got to the sequels. Thanks for dropping by.

    That’s a lot of movies. Haven’t even made my way through your last list. I’ve seen several. One that jumps out is ‘Phantom Thread’ which I believe Daniel Day-Lewis said will be his last film. That’s been on the ‘to-watch’ list.

      ‘Phantom Thread’ is the same director/actor combo that did ‘Let There Be Blood’. Different style but I liked it. Performances were great. Lewis is such a good actor. I wanted to slap him.

        because of the genre this probably didnt make a lot of noise (Im not in touch so I dont know). Knowing your eclectic taste I think the Doc would find lots to like. Good film making.

    CB you win best title of a post for this week! Good morning laugh.
    Better Call Saul is a great series. Kinda got out of it and than back into it.
    Currently into season 4 of The Wire. Such a great series.

    Echo In The Canyon is a pretty good music doc. So is Standing In The Shadows Of Motown. If you haven’t seen them, there’s a good chance you’d like them.

    Hey CB. I didn’t enjoy the Lighthouse – definitely not my cuppa!
    I recently watched a film called “Werewolf” – Canadian flick about a young couple on methadone. I thought it was quite good. Slow burn. It might be a little too calm for CB though.
    I wouldn’t mind seeing Cold Sweat. We’ve watched the Death Wish films and I am really enjoying Bronson. Already told Mars to look out for this one.
    Anyway, laterz!

      Yeah Mars and I had a little convo on ‘Lighthouse’. More than a few folks would be reaching for the eject button.
      Just checked out the trailer for ‘Werewolf’. I love those indie films. Thanks I will check it out. A friend of mine was in something that looks similar. ‘Solars Point’ I think you might like it.
      I’m a huge Bronson guy but ‘Cold Sweat’ is not one of his better ones. Quickly shot in Europe and badly dubbed. I’m probably the only person in the world who’s seen it twice. Beware.
      Thanks for dropping by and giving your perspective. Appreciate it. Later Sarca.

      Saul is just good. Totally agree. same page. I think I dropped a comment on “The Platform’ when you reviewed it. I liked it. Dont know much about Guy but enjoyed both those. I guess I was in the mood.
      The Gal and I are doing the at home “Drive – in” movie thing. Tremors was perfect.

    Hi CB! Thanks for the list as I am always looking for new movies. Just saw ‘The Painter & The Thief last night which was a great doc. I’m going to watch ‘Short Eyes’ tonight because any time a play is turned into a movie it almost guarantees that it’s going to be good. Thanks for the list! C. Mack

      Looked at the trailer of ‘The Painter’. I’m in. Getting involved with a junkie/thief is usually a bad idea but I’ll have to watch to find out. I’ve seen that scenario play out before. Several times.
      ‘Short Eyes’ isn’t an easy watch. CB liked it. Some good raw performances. It feels like a play. Plus you feel the environment. Im 50/50 on plays adapted to film. You have an open mind C Mack. Thanks for popping in. And for the film tip. I love docs.

      Ok. We are over due for your film take. You’ve threatened before. Time to pull the trigger and give a film the 1537 works! I was going to do ‘Sat Night/Sun Morn’. It’s such a good film. I’ll never get to all the films that I absolutely love.

        Brilliant. It’s moving without being too manipulative. I think the main judge dude is an absolute hero and Americans should make him king immediately.

        I promise I will do one CB, I am a bit unreliable though. Could do Robert Altman’s ‘Short Cuts’ I love that one.

        I love that street level stuff 1537. Yeah it can get a little “cue the violins” but this one looks like it just tells a real story. Thing is, there are so many people out there like that judge who are doing things to make a difference and not just shooting their mouths off. Bitchers, moaners, pretenders etc bore the shit out of me (CB’s getting a little riled up. I’ll stop) Stories like this keeps CB on the right track. Thanks. Great stuff
        ‘Short Cuts’ that would be very cool. An off the radar flick and Altman to boot. I have the soundtrack to that. I had to have it for Annie Ross. You will pull the trigger “I can’t let that headcase CB have all the fun”

    Interesting potpourri, CB! Saw “The Nightporter” years ago. This movie is probably about what they saw in the U.K. presented about the third Reich without being there or reading the reports of contemporary witnesses: Uniforms and sexual abuse of detainees – the actors’ performance is very good, the plot cracked.

    “Saturday Night Sunday Morning” is probably one of the best “‘Kitchen Sink Dramas”. A perfect capturing into 1960s “ordinary” Britain with “homely” houses, smoky pubs, down to earth banter and the neighbors chatting with their hairnets. I also recommend the book by Alan Sillitoe.

      I was disappointed in ‘Porter’ Fox. Expected a lot more. Enough said.
      I love those similar films to ‘Sat Night Sun Morn’. Stripped down and gritty. Not everybody’s cup a tea but CB digs them. I love a lot of Finney’s work.

    I remember Tremors…that was the first monster movie I showed Bailey…fun movie.
    I have got to see the Evel Knievel and Miles David documentaries. I want to see that Charles Bronson movie also. A Hidden Life, The Irishman, Lighthouse I liked a lot. In the Irishman, it was great to see them all back together again.
    Many here I’d like to check out.

    When I was working from home…I watched all of Barney Miller, WKRP, and a few other TV shows from the seventies.

      Cool that you remember the ‘Tremor’ watch. I think my gang seen that together also.
      The Kneivel’ doc is a good one. I think there’s better stuff on ‘Miles’ out there. Beware of the Bronson flick. He pumped out a quickie over in Europe. It would be one of those films they would tag as the second feature at the drive-in. ’12TH Man’ is beautifully shot. Bailey would get something out of that one
      I was plugged into the Flintstones..

        I covered a lot of Eastwood films (can’t beat the Man with No Name Trilogy ) in the past year and I was moving to Bronson. Love the Flintstones man. Looking forward to the Kneivel flick…I know nothing about Miles…I’ve just read anecdotes about him.
        Appreciate it….He asked me the other day if you reccomended any more…he is searching for the 12th Man now.

        I’m making my way through and around your site. I’ll get to the movies (CB’s a sports guy also) and other things. Yeah Clint has some good ones. Bailey would dig the Leone camera work on the trilogy. Plus ‘Unforgiven’ is beautifully shot. I do love the outside shooting, the big vistas that Lean caught but I do like that 70’s grit of NY that films like ‘French Connection’ caught. ‘Far From Men’ is a beautifully shot film and a good story. The camera tells most of it. Bailey might dig that one also.
        ‘Hard Times’ is my Bronson favorite.
        All the films on this “Popcorn” list are pretty decent. Not CB’s style to run music/film down. A couple should have got the full take treatment but I have so many to get to. A couple i was disappointed in. I think you might guess which ones buy my few words attached. Hey, thanks for tuning in Max. I was going to drop a couple comments on your site but got into the “guitar history” take and forgot the others.

        The first western I showed him was the trilogy. That spoiled me on westerns for a while. It’s just so damn good. I love that seventies New York feel also…the French Connection, Taxi Driver, Mean Streets…I showed them to him when he was 15…the wife didn’t like it but she will live lol.

        I just check out the first Death Wish for the first time a month or so ago…I loved it. Ok man Hard Times it is.

        I don’t do good movie reviews but I try…I don’t want to give the end away.
        Thanks for the movie recommendations…yea for Bailey but for me also lol. Thanks man.

        Death Wish is a good one. When Charlie was doing some good stuff.
        If the movie reviews are like your music takes were in good hands.
        Yeah those westerns kinda set the bar high for sure. That’s funny about the other half. I really recommend Far From Men for Bailey. Viggo M is in it. Later. Death Wish is up for a re-watch. Thanks.
