I watched Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn  :D  a few days ago and enjoyed it. I think the full title sets the tone of the movie pretty well, but might be one of the reasons why it wasn't as big as the studio was probably hoping it to be. But it was a fun movie. I enjoyed it more than Suicide Squad.

I found this topic about the Dirty Harry script. I'm not interested in an original script or anything, but I would like to read it. Amazon has a few apparently, but I noticed some scripts are available in their entirety online for free. Anybody know if that's the case with Dirty Harry?

I still plan on renting Parasite sometime here. I guess I've been too busy watching 1970s TV movies. :D ;D

Fascinating that Parasite is the first foreign movie to win best picture. That really opens the whole thing up going forward, which is cool. Honestly I still have no desire to sit through two hours and forty minutes of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Joker still only barely interests me.

Oh, and I'd also like to check out the best documentary feature American Factory on Netflix. It was made by two people who used to be associated with the college I went to, and the movie itself deals with a factory in Ohio.

Laura Dern really cleaned up a lot of supporting actress awards for that role. I figured Bates's award was being nominated.

Looks like youtube has a good quality upload of the movie, which is where I've been finding these movies (except for Night Stalker, Night Strangler, and Duel--I own those on DVD or Blu-ray).

My favorite movie I watched in all of last year was The Night Stalker, which was a 1972 TV movie that led to a sequel and then a TV series called Kolchak. I rewatched those movies last month (and I'm making my way through the series too, some of which I've already seen), and I watched Duel again, which was also a TV movie. So this has led me to start seeking out horror/thriller TV movies from the 1970s. It's too bad the major TV networks don't do this sort of thing anymore. I've read that TV movies just aren't considered to be very profitable for them now. I don't know--Hallmark does all right with them (by the way, I don't list them on my movie journal but I do watch some of the Hallmark mystery movies and enjoy those).

I watched a few of those older movies last month and am going to watch more, but the standouts have been Home for the Holidays and The Last Child, both of which were directed by the same director as The Night Stalker.

I feel like this is a quirky thing to suddenly get into. :D

I recently watched Klaus and I Lost My Body on Netflix, which, as I mentioned before, are both nominated for best animated film at the Oscars. Both are good. I Lost My Body would be my choice for which I think should win. It's not for kids, by the way.

It's not easy to imagine Clint working on a horror movie, but it'd be interesting to see what he'd do with it. It'd probably go more in the direction of how Kubrick made The Shining.

I would be interested in seeing how Eastwood would handle a horror movie. Play Misty for Me comes close, but is considered more of a thriller.

Very shocking news to get yesterday afternoon.

1917 is still the only Best Picture nominee that I've seen, but Parasite is about to be released to blu-ray/DVD. I'd like to rent that and Joker at some point here (still don't have tons of interest in seeing Joker--it's more of a curiosity thing).

I typically have seen most of the best animated picture nominees though. Though this year there's two I haven't seen yet: I Lost My Body and Klaus, which are both on Netflix.

PB for personal best? :D I don't know about that--it's just probably been a long time since I'd posted eight times in one day.

This is my 8th post for today. :D ;D

1. Dirty Harry
2. Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
3. The Beguiled
4. Play Misty for Me
5. The Outlaw Josey Wales
6. High Plains Drifter
7. Magnum Force
8. The Enforcer
9. The Eiger Sanction
10. Kelly's Heroes
11. Two Mules for Sister Sara
12. Escape from Alcatraz
13. Breezy
14. Every Which Way but Loose
15. The Gauntlet
16. Joe Kidd

This is a really tough decade to rank. 16 movies in one decade! :o Obviously the first four are the ones I mentioned in the previous message--those are some of my absolute favorites.

1. Letters from Iwo Jima
2. Changeling
3. Gran Torino
4. Space Cowboys
5. Mystic River
6. Million Dollar Baby
7. Flags of Our Fathers
8. Blood Work
9. Invictus

Much like my 1980s list, I'm putting this together as I look over the list of movies from the 2000s and feel like it could change. I haven't seen Million Dollar Baby in about 15 years. I like it but don't have much desire to see it again. I feel like Letters is the best movie Eastwood has made in the last 20 years.

1. Honkytonk Man
2. Tightrope
3. Bird
4. Bronco Billy
5. Sudden Impact
6. Pale Rider
7. Heartbreak Ridge
8. The Dead Pool
9. Any Which Way You Can
10. Firefox
11. City Heat
12. Pink Cadillac

This list is mostly just a gut feeling as I look over the 1980s titles. It could certainly change. Honkytonk Man and Tightrope are definitely my favorites from the decade.

I'm a little surprised to see The Rookie appearing here.. I think it's one of Clints most disappointing films
and a rare one in his body of work that has virtually no redeeming qualities ..
I think some of us are just ranking all of them, so it's appearing even if it's in last place. (Of course I wouldn't place it very last because it has its fun parts for me.)
