The Aussie Bulldog
The heck of it is, that movie could have been fixed. It had so many things right, like Annette O'Toole as Lana Lang, and the "Superman, you're a mean drunk" scene in the bar when he is firing the peanuts at the mirror.Superman 3. The one with Richard Pryor. Probably the weakest of the entire Reeve Superman franchise, but also undoubtedly the funniest. Seeing "Bad Superman" straighten the Leaning Tower of Pisa and blow out the Olympic torch is just priceless. I miss Christopher Reeve.
Sorry I missed that one. I really like the noir films.Last night, watched a little-known 1946 noir film, Black Angel. Based on a Cornell Woolrich novel, it features Dan Duryea as the ex-husband of a murdered singer. June Vincent plays the wife of the man who has been having an affair with Singer Girl, and who has been convicted of her murder and is headed for San Quentin's Death Row. June and Dan turn detective to find the real murderer. Their big clue: Dan saw a strange man (Peter Lorre) going into his ex-wife's apartment house that night. . . .
It also features the most restrained performance I've ever seen Broderick Crawford give, as a captain of detectives. Good stuff.
Like a few Chris Nolan films I’ve seen lately I never know what the hell is going on. To be honest I watched this film only because I was waiting for my sourdough to finish proofing. I rode the fast forward button mostly, getting to the cool space scenes, which are plentiful. It had interesting ideas and cool visuals but the ending had me scratching my head. I’ve seen it 3 times now just to torture myself.Have not seen that yet. How was it? I’ve heard it was confusing.
Finished watching this, this morning. I’m not really a jazz music fan but am so glad I watched it. Incredibly talented guy who I need to delve into his huge back catalogue (50+ albums)Documentary on jazz pianist Bill Evans. Genius & tragedy.
