    Yesterday I watched the movie Mr. Nobody (2009) which has a lovely soundtrack.
    Fantastic movie!

    The Conjuring 2 It was okay, probably watch the third movie too.

    Hunting Ground Low budget Sasquatch movie, but fairly decent.

    Runaway Train Jon Voight plays a prisoner that breaks out of jail and hijacks a train. Pretty decent action film.

    I liked it a lot more than the first one. Haven't seen the third one, yet, but it's on my list. The offshoots involving the doll were pretty stupid.

    Runaway Train Jon Voight plays a prisoner that breaks out of jail and hijacks a train. Pretty decent action film.
    Based on a story by Akira Kurosawa, fyi. Voight's finest role, too. BTW, it's an existential action film.

    He did well in it, but played a villain, which I didn't like as much as other roles he's been in. His best movies for me has been Midnight Cowboy, and Deliverance.

    Saw it in the theater and loved it, but back then, I thought ferrets were cool.
    I like the part where Icarus hijacks the Little Red Hen.

    Quantim of Solace - Daniel Craig is the best Bond ever!
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Two amazing Brazilian films I watched recently both directed by Kleber Mendonca Filho

    Bacurau (2019)

    Totally bonkers film about a small village under attack from tourists with guns.


    Aquarius (2016)

    Sonia Braga is magnificent here as a woman beseiged by a nefarious corporation who wants here oceanfront condo.

    The new one has now been pushed back to November even though it has been in the can for more than 2 years. We will be seeing that one in IMAX for sure.
