THE PHILADELPHIA STORY (1940)

Brilliant every time. But, holy cow! Eighty years old!

JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL

Not quite as many laughs as the previous movie, but still pretty darn entertaining. If I was going with star ratings, I'd give it half a star less than its predecessor.

The Philadelphia Story has always one of my all time favourite films.

Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant & Jimmy Stewart are just absolutely magical together. And I so love the 'Somewhere over the rainbow' moment, and the scene it leads to later.

I once was actually lucky enough to see it in my closest arthouse cinema, and at the end the movie got a stand up round of applause. They certainly don't make them like that any more!

Stewart as a sarcastic fast talker is something to see!

Agree to disagree. JUMANJI - THE NEXT LEVEL I found as entertaining as the first one. Bold of them to take such a different tack. My introduction to Awkwafina, who I found very amusing.

CHARLIE'S ANGELS (2019)

In one word: MEH!

Did the same crap as the first MISSION: iMPOSSIBLE, turning a character from the tv show into the villain.

Re: IT - CHAPTER TWO

Close.  The shouting was proving to Pennywise that the "Loser's Club" wasn't afraid of him anymore... the running theme of both films was that he fed on the fear of his victims.

After he crumbled into a much smaller form, they were able to kill him by ripping out his heart and crushing it.

GAMBIT (1966)

Neatly matched Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine in an elaborate (twice) heist comedy I haven’t seen in about 40 years. It holds up well, tho Shirley plays a half Caucasian half Eurasian character who would doubtless generate controversy today. (Tho she’s White/White/Asian so... maybe not?)

Also stars Herbert Lom, a favorite, also playing across ethnic lines.

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE (1963)

OK, I know I said GOLDFINGER was the best, but having just seen FRWL again I have to confess I feel THIS is probably the best Bond movie of them all.
