Lately I haven't watched anything made later than 1940, so it would either be Gold Diggers of 1933 or 42nd Street (also 1933) on DVD - I watched them on the same day but can't remember which I watched first or second. Anyway, I rate both at 10/10 because Busby Berkeley + Ruby Keeler cannot equal anything less than perfection.

Next up (probably tomorrow if Amazon are on form) Dames (1934) - because I can't get enough of Ruby!

(Note: before anybody asks, I am not old enough to have caught the premiers of these movies. My mother was born in 1933, so even she had to wait a few years.

Zombieland: Double Tap - good fun sequel, can't belive it was ten years between the two!
Read that Michael Cera turned down a part which is a shame as he would have been perfect, but understandable as Jesse Eisenberg seemed to take every role that would have suited him for a good few years. Anyway 4/5

Enola Holmes on Netflix. 7/10
Adorable fluff with a charming title character that couldn't quite hold my attention marred by a nonsensical plot and the boredom embodied by the presence of Henry Cavill. Every time he appears on the screen I yawn. It's a reflex now. What do people see in him. He's pretty but that's it.

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

Killer Joe.
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.

Zack Snyder's Justice League - 10/10 He really did fixed the movie

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 Odessa File (1974) - 4/10
Politicized claptrap.

Jacob's Ladder (1990) - 8/10

Zack Snyder's Justice League - 10/10

Gotta say, this film is everything that a DC fan ever dreamed of.

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.

Communion (1989) - 6/10.
Christopher Walken gets abducted and anally probed.
