IL Bidone - Haven't see this one since I did my degree some years ago. I appreciated it a lot more now and it's great seeing this Fellini film all scrubbed up for Blu-ray.

Cry Vengeance (1954) - Pretty damn good noir, directed by and starring Mark Stevens. An ex-cop hunts done mobsters in Alaska, who he believes framed him as a corrupt cop and murdered his family.

RAIN MAN (1988) - ... Tom Cruise is, well, Tom Cruise.  You either love him or hate him. 

***

I love him in this movie. For me, one of his best acting turns. I thought back then that he should have won the Oscar!

Although I generally don't care for Tom Cruise, he plays to his strengths in RAIN MAN. I think it's one of his all-time best performances. I suppose it's easy to dismiss him at first because his character is such a prick for most of the film, but I find him genuinely moving by the end.

Agreed. I like Cruise in RAIN MAN, not much else.

The original POLICE ACADEMY (1984)

First time watching it since the '80s, when it seems I caught it every single time it was on HBO!

Rented it on a nostalgia kick, but was pleasantly surprised to see how well it actually held up, and how many times I laughed out loud all over again, even when I knew when all the jokes were coming.

Great ensemble cast, and I can imagine what a crowd-pleaser it was on its first release.

The sequels certainly diluted the original's impact, but I can see myself buying this one in the not-too-distant future, adding it to my library of essential '80s comedies!

MI:IV (2012) - Finally got my back speakers installed so that I have 7.1 audio.  Had it before in our apartment, but it was a much bigger affair wiring our house for it.  To put it through it's paces, we watched one of the few 7.1 movies available on Blu-ray (I really enjoy the audio for sports with makes watching a game totally immersive). I throughly enjoyed MI:IV in the theatre where it was simply amazing on an IMAX screen.  I've seen it several times since on Blu and enjoyed it all the more.  Last night was no exception, but was heightened by the sound design.  Amazing stuff.

A double feature of WRECK-IT RALPH (2013) and DESPICABLE ME 2 (2013), for friends. The first has grown on me with repeated watchings, the second I liked immediately, after the first grew on me.

The animation in both continues to astonish. All just 1s and 0s!!!

OBLIVION.  I had absolutely no reaction to this movie.  I just watched it last night and it's already a blur.

PROMETHEUS (2012)

Yeah. Again. Call me a sucker for punishment. And, you know, in the end it's STILL nothing more than a pretentious, poorly written, grade Z monster movie with astonishing special effects.
