I am interested in knowing what movies you have watched and what you enjoyed or not. So please send me an email at if you'd like to share. Here's what I watched last week:


SID & JUDY (2019)


Mildly enjoyed:


JUDY (2019)


Did not enjoy:

MA (2019) - At least this movie introduced me to Diana Silvers.

BOOKSMART (2019) - At least this movie reminded me of Diana Silvers.

WHEN A MAN RIDES ALONE (1933) - Tom Tyler played the Llano Kid, who rode up behind the stagecoach, transfered from his horse to the back of the stage, and then climbed up top inorder to pull a gun on the driver and the guard. "Throw off the gold shipment from the Cottonwood Mine." The Kid leaves the stage by jumping onto a low branch of a tree the coach speeds under, and then whistles to his horse to stand under the tree and he jumped into the saddle. Like Robin Hood, the Kid gave the gold to those who were swindled by the Cottonwood Mine operation - with a receipt! Even though the sheriff is out to catch the robber, he felt that the owner of Cottonwood, Slade, was getting what he deserved. 


EL CHICANO (2018) - Who requested a Mexican-American Batman who kills with an Aztec blade?


David Deal enjoyed:



Mildly enjoyed:

BLUEPRINT FOR A MASSACRE (67) - See The Eurospy Guide book for detailed review.


Charles Gilbert watched:

THE MUMMY'S CURSE (1944) B&W. Referenced in Leave It to Beaver S02E18 'The Garage Painters'.  After reading Mark Twain's 'Tom Sawyer', Beaver states that the "dead cat in the cemetary Incident was better that THE MUMMY'S CURSE".
