Early Man (2018)

There is a lot I like about Aardman. I'm a huge fan of almost anything done with stop motion animation, and enjoy Aardman's distinctive style. But I must admit, their films have been hit or miss for me. I liked Chicken Run, and the Wallace and Gromit stuff. Curse of the Were Rabbit was pretty great IMO. Flushed Away, although not done in stop motion, kept the same style and was also pretty great. But that Pirates! movie they did, although visually impressive, had a story that was too silly for my taste. Shawn the Sheep is OK but often too juvenile for my liking. But I understand the audience it is aimed at.

This film was a real disappointment for me. Conceptually, it seemed like it was going to be similar to the Jack Black comedy Year One, and has some pretty funny sight gags. But the plot turns into a story about a football (soccer) game, which has absolutely no interest for me whatsoever. I know there are many fans of this, but it bores me. Practically made the movie unwatchable. Bummer.

Watched an enjoyable "Triple Feature". Back in the days of drive-in theaters, this would be typical of a "dusk to dawn" show.

Fistful of Dollars (1964)
For a Few Dollars More (1965)
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)

The original Sergio Leone "Spaghetti Westerns" that jump started Clint Eastwood's career in movies, and also a big boost to Lee Van Cleef's career as well. The real special feature here was The Good, the Bad and the Ugly this time being the restored, extended version that is 3 hours long. Which, I'm pretty sure I've never seen before.

Interesting note: I read an opinion piece about the run of western movies that followed these, that opined that the movie that essentially killed off the popularity of these films, was 1974's Blazing Saddles. Much in the same way 1963's Cleopatra killed off the Italian "sword and sandal" movie craze of the early 1960s. Probably right.

A few recently watched films:

Isle of Dogs (2018)

Animated Wes Anderson movie. His movies, and his style, are almost a genre to themselves. Interesting, quirky story, Silly Fun, another well made oddity.

Return of the Pink Panther (1975)

I don't know why, but this is the one Pink Panther movie you hardly ever see. It is the only one NOT on Amazon Prime. Sets up a lot of the following films, and establishes many of the sight gags. Probably the second best of the series after Strikes Again.

The Princess and the Pirate (1944)

Light, Bob Hope romantic comedy in a pirate movie setting. Lots of lame jokes, not much drama and the humor isn't all that funny. Not one of Hope's better pictures.

Baby Driver (2017)

Not what I expected. Very well done treatment of a story I'd have probably passed on, but I like Edgar Wright's work. Didn't have as much of the humor I expected from a film of his, but the chase scenes, which make up a good portion of the film, were terrific.

Riverboat Rhythm (1946)

What a great little comedy. A guy who runs a river showboat has nothing but problems trying to keep it going. Lot's of witty dialogue. Some great recycled vaudeville bits by Ben Carter and Mantan Moreland, a real standout here. Fun old RKO comedy.

Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

I'm not a fan of superhero movies, especially the Marvel EU, but everyone said what a great movie this was. I do like the Guardians of the Galaxy, so I decided to get this. I admit, it was a good, well done film. My only real difficulty watching this was that I did not know who half the characters were, not being a fan of the Marvel EU films. But the film was well done enough that that did not really detract from the experience. Well done. I actually look forward to the sequel.

Tarzan, The Ape Man (1959)

MGM sold the rights to the Tarzan film franchise years before, but retained the rights to remake the first of the series. This was a pretty shoddily done cash grab full of bad, obvious studio effects, stock footage, and recycled, poorly colorized footage from old Wiessmuller films. Actually pretty watchable, if you ignore all the technical flubs.

Wizards (1977)

Saw this in a drive in theater in my youth. Was a pretty groundbreaking work in it's day, a full length fantasy adventure animated film. This film was contemporary to the first Star Wars film, to put it in perspective. As much as I love this Bakshi film, and the bar it set for fantasy films, I don't think it holds up too well today.

Which one? I am a fan of the original one from the 1940s, (as well as all the old Universal monster films), and I liked the newer one with Benicio del Toro.
