There are enough comments about movies people have seen, book they have read and TV series they find interesting that an Off Topic -> Off Topic -> Entertainment section might be appreciated by others as well as me.
Consideration??

I watched Red Corner last evening. Not too sure how the actual trial process in PRC occurs, but this was an interesting movie. Having spent time in the Orient, many references to 'face' made a lot of sense.

Recap: An American attorney on business in China, ends up wrongfully on trial for murder and his only key to innocence is a female defense lawyer from the country.

It is indeed! Stopping it occasionally to check the validity of some statement, I find, for the most part, the story seems to follow historical accuracy to a greater degree than other movies of its ilk.

If you're interested in reading it, the summation of Mr Aiken, given in the movie, while shortened is accurate.

The question has to come up, was Redford using the century old assassination of Lincoln and the violations of civil law of that time to question (or cause us to question) the suspension of civil law today in, for example, the Patriot Act?

We watch a lot of movies here too. The one movie that sticks out in my mind, watched pretty recently, is Stalingrad. I begged husband to watch it with me for months. He thought it would be in Russian, and too many subtitles. He was wrong. He loved the movie too. Subtitles only for the German dialogue, the rest is in English dubbed. Long movie, about 3 hours I think. Don't know how historically correct it is, but the Russians spent a ton of money making this movie, and it was enjoyable. To find the correct one it would be Stalingrad 2013 or 2014, got low reviews in IMDB, but what do they know, lol. Another one I have watched a few times and have loved is Enemy At The Gate(2001).

Stalingrad 2013 - A good movie, a beautiful piece of propaganda. I don't think the Russians had that much more peace than we did. After WW II, we were in Korea, then Viet Nam, they gradually took over Eastern Europe and were in Afghanistan - none were good wars.
Try 2:10 - at least the one I watched. The German captioning was bad!! Sometimes laughably bad! My German isn't that good but there were times their translation as horrible!!

Last night's movie - "Million Dollar Arm".

Based on true story. Again, I fell asleep 30 minutes into it. I really enjoyed the Hindi background music. Wayne thought the movie was way better than he expected. Alan Arkin's character was a stitch. Makes me want to visit India.

And for me it was "The Water Diviner" IMDB 7.2

After WW I an Australian man travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons.

I was expecting more of a war movie - but it turns into a sweet love story through all the pain.

Got Wayne's official rating of the movie - "a solid three".

Here is our rating system:

1: Turn it off, don't finish it
2: Finish the movie but not great
3: OK
4: Really liked it
5: Liked it enough to buy it and add to our library

I went looking for your Million Dollar Arm and ended up watching The field of Lost Shoes

Plot Summary: In the midst of a prolonged and deadly American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln appoints a very different kind of general, Ulysses S. Grant, Chief of Union Forces. Grant acts decisively. He brings total war to the pristine Shenandoah Valley, breadbasket of the South. The superintendent of the Virginia Military Institute volunteers to send the Corps of Cadets to protect the valley. 274 young cadets march northward toward the strategic valley choke-point of New Market. On the day of battle, Confederate General John C. Breckenridge, former Vice President of the United States, and commander of southern forces in Valley, is faced with a horrible decision. When Southern forces are jeopardized, he orders the young cadets into battle.

I seem to be on a war kick. This is definitely one of those movies that you don't want to watch without a hanky handy!

If you're in for a long movie, The Human Condition is well worth the watch.  Based on the book by Hannah Arendt this 9.5 hour trilogy has to be the longest single movie I've ever watched.

Be warned, this is a nine hour trilogy, part one (which I just finished) is 3 hours and 20 minutes.  Also, regrettably it is in Japanese, Chinese and Korean with subtitles in English.

It's on YouTube, which is where I'm watching it
The Human Connection

  • No Greater Love 3:20
  • Road to Eternity 2:57
  • A Soldier's Prayer 3:10


It's also on Hulu Premium (which is why I'm watching it on YouTube ...)

If you have the opportunity, there's a new movie called "Max"
It's not about a Husky it's about a Malinois - it's one of the few movies that's ad me in tears within 15 minutes and it's 106 minutes long. Bring the Kleenex but do watch it!!

I have been thinking that I will refuse to see it, at least outside the privacy of my own home where I can bawl my eyes out.

Sara, you definitely will!  It's really a great movie but it's also one emotional roller coaster as the story develops.

I suppose it won't be a spoiler to say that the story develops around a "War Dog" and it's dedicated to the War Dogs and their handlers.




The same fellow who pointed me toward "Max" also suggested The Last of the Dogmen which is an interesting story about a "lost" native American tribe.

And this deserves a note all of its own.  The movie is Taking Chance Anything I say is a spoiler to the whole movie - but it is one that deserves watching.

Since I'm ex-military, it hit particularly close to home. When I left Viet Nam, I escorted one of our injured back to the States.

The Imitation Game and Unbroken were so fantastic!

My movie recommendation...
Mad Mad: Fury Road was the single greatest movie I've seen all year. It was a little on the strange side, but it's Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron so... perfection.
