    I love this film, and always have. If it was on TV I would always watch it. I recently ordered it on DVD along with a boxset of all the original Superman films, and the 2006 Superman Returns.
    Yes to all of this! All the reasons I love it. And Hart Bochner is gorgeous in it, who wouldn't love the idea of him being under a spell to love you! Yes please.
    I've always been a bit of secret Superman geek.

    Nice. I love an occasional super-binge.


    And even if the spell wears off he's still pretty good with bark, so it's win/win really

    Oh, it's an ongoing monthly thing and the films they show are quite random. I haven't been to many of them but do get notified. Some of them are the Psycho Killer Lesbian Elves type thing, or terrible hidden Schwarzenegger films. They're often based on current trends in film. For example, I recall they showed Shark Attack 3 recently to coincide with the release of The Meg.

    I love Supergirl, too. In all her incarnations. Like so many of those films, the production values are good. They just made the wrong script.
    I have the DVD, too. The Reeve era is not complete without it.

    I enjoyed it! Some of the language and pronunciation was a little American/contemporary at times, but not enough to spoil a decent film. ​

    A rarity these days, a film that is thought provoking, inspiring, powerful, beautiful. Amazing!

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    First Man. I don't think I can say anything of value to add to what the film and the two main actors (Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy) offered. And the trailer doesn't do it justice because despite the grand topic, it is overall a low key movie about a low key character who happened to be thrust in the global limelight. Though it does have its nail biting moments.

    The Girl King (2015)

    About the Christina, the 17th century Queen of Sweden.

    In a way it's a prequel to The Abdication (1974) which starred Liv Ullmann, although it contradicts it in some of the details.
    Greta Garbo also played her in Queen Christina (1933).

    I watched this yesterday on Netflix. Thoroughly enjoyed it...again. Reminds me a lot like "Annihilation" starring Natalie Portman. Another thought provoking movie.

    I watched Cosmopolis yesterday. Almost the entire film takes place in the back of a stretch limo. It reminded me a lot of The Man Who Fell to Earth. R-Patz is in every scene and he's a really compelling, weird screen presence. More like a young Christopher Walken than a young Bowie though.

    And I watched Maggie's Plan the other day. Really enjoyable and funny, with interesting, unpredictable characters, and a neurotic Woody Allen vibe.

    17 Again

    Matthew Perry youthens into Zac Efron thanks to a mystical janitor with unexplained motivations and tries to redo high school.

    I've seen this sort of thing done better. Efron is okay but he and Perry are not really enough alike to convince me they are the same person and Thomas Lennon steals the show from both of them. It's interesting to seem him with Matthew Perry in almost the reverse of the roles they later played in The Odd Couple on TV.

    Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool -- a beautifully tender, compassionate, intimate love story. Full of heart and very moving.

    Added bonuses: Julie Walters reprising her Educating Rita scouse accent and Billy Elliot dancing, joyously, to 'Boogie Oogie Oogie' by Taste of Honey.
