    Finished the Godfather Trilogy yesterday. Just as good as I remembered it.

    Watched the original "McHales Navy" (1964), still as funny as it was back then.

    Still Mine (2012) -- with James Cromwell, Geneviève Bujold, Campbell Scott.

    Synopsis @ Rotten Tomatoes:

    In his first lead role after decades of playing supporting characters, James Cromwell gives a tour de force performance in STILL MINE, an exquisitely crafted and deeply affecting love story about a couple in their twilight years.

    Based on true events and laced with wry humor, STILL MINE tells the heartfelt tale of Craig Morrison (Academy Award (R) nominee Cromwell), who comes up against the system when he sets out to build a more suitable house for his ailing wife Irene (Academy Award (R) nominee Geneviève Bujold). Although Morrison uses the same methods his father, an accomplished shipbuilder, taught him, times have changed.

    He quickly gets blindsided by local building codes and bureaucratic officials. As Irene becomes increasingly ill - and amidst a series of stop-work orders - Craig races to finish the house. Hauled into court and facing jail, Craig takes a final stance against all odds in a truly inspirational story. (c) Samuel Goldwyn

    If a fan of James Cromwell's acting, he was in another film back in 2010: Under The Roman Sky, about the papacy of Pope Pius XII (during the Second World War). About ~3-1/2 hrs in length.

    A couple of "soap opera" type bits added, but otherwise an interesting look at the Vatican and challenges that had to be dealt with as the Nazi armed forces engulfed Europe. With excellent performances, as well, by Italian actress Alessandra Mastronardi and German actor Ken Duken.

    Pretty well done, for a "TV" movie.

    He was great playing Zefram Cochrane in the 1996 film Star Trek: First Contact.

    He (actor James Cromwell) was great playing Zefram Cochrane in the 1996 film Star Trek: First Contact.
    And in another one, 2011's Hide Away, about a successful businessman whose life goes off the rails ... so he takes a year off, heading to a remote town, buying an old fix-'er-upper sailboat, and spending a year on it. Cromwell's the "wise old sailor" guy he meets in the anchorage. Interesting film, if a bit depressing, but Cromwell's pretty great in it. First time I'd ever seen Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer. A pretty good "B" movie that was shown practically nowhere, back when it was released. Saw it on the "big screen" and it was captivating. Good acting. A spare, tight story, told well.

    Bottle Shock (2008, with Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman). The story of the blind taste testing of California's best wines against France's most-storied vintages, back in 1976. The point at which California wines finally were noticed on the world stage.

    A bit quirky, funny, with pretty decent performances by Rickman and Pullman. Worth seeing.

    Scarface (1932) with Paul Muni and Ann Dvorak. On the plus side, it's against modern, for the day, crime organizations. On the negative side, it's message included how evil fully automatic weapons are. Also, I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang (1932) again with Paul Muni. Talk about a horror picture, that one. I usually don't like "message" pictures, but that one gets a pass. The key for me in watching these old movies is to imagine myself being in the era and without ready access to our modern world of information.

    Good action movie with old style fight scenes and gun battles, no shakey cam and no too close cut scenes.

    Ultimate Justice with Mark Dacascos (2017).

    The Last Sentence (2014) -- In Swedish (with English subtitles). The story of a man who as a journalist fought to warn people of the growing fascism and against Sweden's policy of neutrality in the years leading up to the end of WWII. Very interesting.

    Review of 'The Last Sentence' @ RogerEbert.com, by Glenn Kenny, 20 June 2014.

    The Lighthouse (2019) -- starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson. Two lighthouse keepers fight the elements, spirits and each other.

    Film Review: Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe in ‘The Lighthouse’ @ Variety.com.

    From the trailer videos @ IMDB, it looks a bit strange ... but with powerful performances by the lead actors. Just released this week, it hasn't been shown in many theaters across the U.S. yet. Might have to see it. Dafoe generally does such exceptional work, no matter the material.



    Another really interesting and well done film starring Willem Dafoe, which came out last year: At Eternity's Gate (2018). About some of the life, inspiration and challenges of Vincent van Gogh. Two thumbs up, on this one.
