The Nice Guys - So funny, and they clearly both work so well together. Highly recommended -- 9/10

I enjoyed this quite a lot though at times I couldn't work out how to take it.

The Outer Space Connection (1975) - 8/10
This is a documentary about the possible alien origin of some of the worlds oldest structures, like various pyramids, the lines of Nazca, etc. Saw this as a teenager and really enjoyed seeing it again.

Somewhere in Time (1980) - 3/10
Pointless, and seems to have been made solely to further the careers of the two stars.

The Disappearance (1977) - 8/10
(No spoilers)
Donald Sutherland plays a contract killer whose wife has disappeared, or has left him, he's not sure which. He is told little about his next contract (what is surreptitiously referred to as a "shy") and suspects it may be related to his wife's disappearance. The ending perhaps leaves more questions than it does answers.
This is one of those movies where you have to turn up the volume and really pay attention to what is said in order to keep track of what's going on. I had to watch it twice to really follow it.
It is non-linear, with frequent "flashbacks" throughout, where the Sutherland character thinks about his wife and their stormy marriage. In fact, all of his wife's appearances are in flashbacks, except for a couple of scenes at the very end of the film. There is also a flashback to a recent murder he committed on a ship.
I like the cinematography and especially the filming location at Habitat '67 in Montreal.
Not considered one of Sutherland's better films and a box office failure, I nevertheless love it.
It's presently on YouTube.

The Day Time Ended (1979) - 1/10
Many drugs were apparently consumed in the making of this movie. One of the worst movies I've ever seen.

Invasion of the Blood Farmers (1972) - 1/10
Laughable, and one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
I watched this on the recommendation of someone who said that, in an odd coincidence, at the time of the making of this movie in Westchester County, New York, just north of New York City, the real-life so-called Son of Sam cult was practicing some of the things depicted in this movie, such as animal sacrifices.

The Mitchell's vs the Machines - 8/10
Would recommend, I really enjoyed it. I didn't like all the "lol so random. Teens love random. We understand teens"-esque random flashy scenes though.

The Negotiator (1998)

I liked it, it's not the first time I've seen it but it's definitely been a while. It feels like "everyone" is in the movie even if you can't name them all.

My Dinner With Andre (1981) - 1/10
I cringe thinking that people actually paid money and sat in movie theaters to watch this pseudo-intellectual drivel. I'm embarrassed to say that I sat through this, watching it online last night, although I did fall asleep for about 15 minutes half-way through. Well, eating always makes me sleepy.

Idiocracy (2006) - 2/10
Not too far from present-day reality. I did get one good thing out of watching this garbage, namely, the end credits play a catchy instrumental ditty I'd never heard before, Buck Owens' Buckaroo.

Con Air (1997) is like the only Nic Cage movie that's acceptable. Though I did watch like 10 mins of Bangkok Dangerous before I had to go out and that was really fun, so maybe if I watch the whole thing there could be another nice movie featuring the dude

Fahrenheit 451 (1966) - 3.5/10
(slight spoiler warning)
Typical low budget British science fiction, with cheesy props, including 1940's-era telephones and telephone switchboards among otherwise somewhat futuristic mid-century furniture, and the main protagonist eventually escaping in a row boat, despite his high-tech pursuers giving chase on jet packs, which is the absurd low point in the film.
What's odd is that in a society that has outlawed reading of any kind, everyone does seem to know how to read, and there are in fact places where reading is obvious, at least the reading of numbers, such as the number 451 on the firemen's uniforms and the floor selection buttons inside elevators.
The only thing that intrigues me about this movie is that I'm curious where the elevated monorail was located and whatever happened to it, so I'll have to do a net search for that.
Some movies make me want to read the books they're based on, but this isn't one of them. Pointless and very boring.

Edit: The monorail was a test track, about a mile long and constructed in France by a corporate consortium, and dismantled not long after having been used in the movie.

Yeah, it's unfortunate that Cage seems to be one of David Lynch's go-to actors.
