Sunshine Boys (t0073766) - 7/10 - loved Burns, hated Matthau.
I wanted to watch this movie because it's a true story about one of the first times ever in the U.S. that a man got convicted for a capital offense without a body or a murder weapon having been found. Unfortunately it never surpasses the level of the average B-movie.
Zulu - 7/10 - could have used a bit of a prologue explaining the situation this battle happened in, for those of us unfamiliar.
The Count of Monte Cristo - 8/10
The Man Who Knew Too Much - 8/10 - the ending was too abrupt but otherwise, I liked it very much.
Ninotchka - 8/10 - Garbo's penultimate film...oh what might have been! Her performance at the beginning really annoyed me but I guess it was necessary to show the contrast to her later behavior. Interesting fact - actress Ina Claire who played Ninotchka's rival ended up marrying John Gilbert, who had been Garbo's lover for many years.
Made in Dagenham - 6/10 - I wanted to like this so much more than I did. I love a lot of the actors and the subject matter was compelling but the execution just seemed very blah. Disappointing.
Stage Beauty - 7/10 - there are certain quirks of Claire Danes' acting that seemed to be heightened in this film and I really don't like. I've seen her in maybe 5 to 7 projects before and it wasn't until this movie that I really noticed now distracting and yet boring it is. Two examples are when she is making out with someone and when she starts to cry. The rest of the film is mostly interesting, and a story I haven't seen before.
Joe Kidd (1972) - 7/10
Trespass (1992) - 6/10
Children of the Damned (1964) - 7/10
The first two were about to leave the Netflix Latin America catalog so I watched them before it was too late. Joe Kidd is a decent western, Trespass is not perfect and is only to pass time if there's nothing better to do.
The last film I watched as a follow up to village of the damned (1960), it is not as good as the first version.
