    :D Ah well - it's worked out well for the thread anyway.

    Will do. [​IMG]



    That sounds like a plan to me, Ms. P. :)

    I can recommend "The Taming of the Shrew" and "Cleopatra" if you haven't seen them before.
    Yes he does have a bit of a Welsh in his English accent. :)

    Thanks. I'll add them to my viewing bucket list. ;)

    I can relate to that. ;)

    Once Is Not Enough

    The first half was OK, not a great story but at least it was interesting to watch the characters and the seventies gear and sets.
    But the second half, when the heroine (played by Deborah Raffin) got romantically involved with an older man, was extremely boring and it just went on and on.
    Therefore it wasn't enjoyable in a so-bad-it's-good sort of way. It was just plain boring.
    The ending was abrupt, but I've watched this on YT so I don't know if this was supposed to be a "Sopranos" effect or because the uploader failed the upload the entire movie (there were no end credits either).

    I have no idea what the title has to do with this movie, but perhaps I've missed the deeper subtext.

    After visiting the ABBA museum yesterday. We rewatched "Mamma Mia!" tonight. Such a feel good movie. Funny and lots of great music. :)

    Following on from the Ealing films, I've started a watch of a British comedy film series that picks up in the same era the Ealings left off. Starting with…


    Doctor In The House

    The Conjuring 2 with Bates Motel's Vera Farmiga, who's become one of my favorite actresses. I don't really like (or watch) horror movies at all, but this was truly excellent. One of the best new movies I've seen this year. Beautifully filmed, well written, and fine acting on top of that. The true story it is based on was a compelling after-movie research project.

    Thanks a lot Ome for your post, that reminded me that I had both movies at home and never watched them!! I must change that really soon, I also love Miss Farmiga!! I did watch the first "Conjuring" (in Spain, released with the prefix "Warren File"!).

    For anyone who hasn´t watched "Orphan", you can take a look at the trailer here:

    (...though I myself think I shouldn´t have watched it...) :eck::danc:

    LOL


    Orphan is a film best watched knowing as little as possible. I'd like to say more or even why, but then I'd be breaking the law...

    No, I haven't. Thanks for the recommendation, Ome. I first saw Vera in that 2011 thriller she did with Jake Gyllenhaal and it was love at first sight. She reminds me of a really cool & crazy girl friend of mine. :)

    I finally watched this one...

    upload_2016-11-1_23-49-13.jpeg
    No, not that one, I was just kidding...
    It scared the hell out of me!! At first the girl reminded me a bit of Olivia from "Knots", but then...well, as you said, Ome, the less you know, the best watched. I wish I hadn´t even watched the trailer but...
    Honestly, I thought
    Register or to view Spoiler content!
    Formiga and Skarsgaard are great as usual, and when the movie finished, I googled the child actress´s name and found out that she´s playing Lizzy Caplan´s very stupid daughter on "Masters of Sex"...
    Thanks again for reminding me I had this one at hand!

    My Doctor romp continued last night with the second in the series…

    Doctor At Sea






    The first English-language film appearance of Brigitte Bardot. Very pretty she was too.


    It was an enjoyable film, with some nice scenery. But on the down side it was lighter on the terribly British charm of Doctor In The House, and I wanted to know what happened to Simon's peers from the first film.

    Ha !
    Yes, I can see that too.

    It really is quite a story and the way it was executed is why I still remember it so vividly. I'm glad you enjoyed it, I'm not much of a movie fan, if I've seen 1000 movies, I've usually really enjoyed about 30, and liked 90.

    After watching Doctor At Large on Friday, last night's film was Doctor In Love:




    An enjoyable little film, with a host of familiar faces and more Carry On crew present than in some of the Carry Ons:





    I didn't miss Dirk Bogart at all.
