    Trust you like BLADE RUNNER. I have three of the eight versions but my favourite is the first edition with the voice over.

    Via Netflix, Master and Commander: Far Side Of The World, with Russell Crowe, Billy Banks, James D'Arcy and Paul Bettany. First off, in my book, anything Russell Crowe is in can't be bad. Secondly, this is both a magnificent saga and production and all the actors are quite up to the task. What shocked me the most was seeing how young some of the recruits and officers comprising the British Navy at the time were; yet they had to become men in order to survive. Now, I shall have to look into acquiring the complete Aubrey/Martin series by Patrick O'Brian, preferably for under 100 bucks--some 20 volumes in all. I know that for the money I'm willing to spend on this, it will have to be a paperback collection. Oh, well.

    On Netflix, Apollo 13, starring Tom Hanks, Ed Harris, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton and Joe Spano. I remember seeing this drama played out in "real time" as a 19 year old teenager, and never fully realized--until seeing this Ron Howard directed film--just how awfully close we came to losing these brave men. Plaudits to Howard and the cast, as well as to all the people at NASA in real life who made sure these heroes made it home safely.

    Great film Steve. Hanks rates highly as an actor with me.

    Just found ELECTRA GLIDE IN BLUE on DVD. Must get a copy. This rates alonside TWO LANE HARDTOP, EASY RIDER and VANISHING POINT, in my not humble opinion

    Via Netflix, The Conspirator, a Robert Redford directed film about a true incident following the Lincoln murder in which a sympathetic Confederate boarding house owner named mary serraut was arrested and eventually executed by the Federal authorities for her seemingly tenuous--at best--connection to John Wilkes Booth and the conspiracy to assassinate the President. A year after her hanging, the Supreme Court ruled it illegal, smallcomfort to her! This film raises many questions still relevant in our own societies today, as we confront the vicious terrorists such as Al Qaeda and ISIS, and whether democracies will be able to survive or slide into military dictatorships in order to really effectively conduct--and, hopefully, eventually terminate--the seemingly "forever" War on Terror. Well done all around. The film features Jake McAvoy and Robin Wright in the leading roles.

    Via Netflix, Gladiator {Expanded Edition}, starring Russell Crowe and Oliver Reed. I don't know if this is based on a true story or not, but in either case this is a great tale and movie. kudos all around!

    Quadraphenia - Written and featuring the music of The Who
    All about the Mods and the Rockers (of which I was a Mod) Features some great music and quite a good storyline about a mixed up kid trying to come to terms with the world he is growing up in.

    On Netflix, The Big Lebowski, starring Tara Reid, Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and Ben Gazzara. Great "over the top" performances by Bridges {The Dude] and Goodman {Walter}. As far as the story line is concerned, a little "far fetched", but great fun anyways. And Tara Reid as "Bunny" is by no stretch of the imagination hard on the old peepers.

    Via Netflix, Braveheart, starring Mel Gibson, Patrick McGoohan and Ian Bannen, Although I am by no means enamored of the real-life Gibson's quite pronounced and overt anti-semitism and misogyny,as an actor portraying the noble Scottish warrior and freedom fighter William Wallace, he is without equal. Although the movie might have "stretched"--literally {pun intended} certain aspects of the actual story of the fight for Scottish independence, it was nonetheless cinematically quite stunning and powerful. The supporting cast--especially McGoohan and the Queen--were all excellent as well.

    Unfortunately Gibson is also anti British. Bravehart is about as historically correct as The Three Little Pigs. Good cast, shame about the film
