    Venom is the same as Punisher for me, so my interest was less than zero right out the gate.

    I loved The Punisher TV show... It's my favorite of the Marvel series on Netflix ....

    I mean if there's one thing we learned from Zack Snyder is that the grittier the superhero the better.

    I've come to the conclusion that Cary Grant really might have been the greatest screen presence of his era. Just listen to his frustrated yelps in His Girl Friday or watch his sardonic, wounded performance in Notorious. He was so adept at shifting between genres. Yet many folks refuse to acknowledge his acting abilities. Most people focus on the suave, dapper aspects of so many of his performances.

    This dialogue is like music. A shame that clip is sourced from an unrestored, PD version of the movie.

    I miss the charm of these films. Does anyone still write like that? I'm not saying they don't, I'm genuinely asking so I can watch something new with this same sort of charm.

    The death of Jòhann Jòhannsson hurts. Dude made some of the best scores of the last decade.

    Laura is on. Such a good movie. Gene Tierney is a goddess.

    I just read about this today. The cause of death is still shrouded in mystery. I, personally, would've loved to have heard what he was cooking up for Blade Runner before Villeneuve went with Walfisch and Zimmer.

    I own all three of those blu-rays. I love them. Well, the first two. I think everyone exudes a ton of charm in The Philadelphia Story but it's plotting bugs me.

    That's fair. It's much more stage-like than the other two as far as plotting goes.

    Criterion's blu-ray of His Girl Friday might be one of my favourite releases of theirs in the last several years.

    oh yeah. I was watching that restoration of the 1931 version of The Front Page the other day and holy crap, that movie was ridiculously ahead of its time.

    Do I buy The Breakfast Club, Short Cuts and Young Mr. Lincoln or do I drop short cuts and go for Night of the Living Dead? I rarely get the Janus/Rialito titles since they're almost always readily available on FilmStruck.
