A prequel to The Sopranos is coming soon, The Many Saints of Newark: A Sopranos Story. Michael Gandolfini, James Gandolfini's son, is going to play the young Tony Soprano.

Wow!

Saw the action movie Gunpowder Milkshake on Netflix.

It was OK. It has Karen Gillan (of Doctor Who and Guardians of the Galaxy fame) as an assassin trying to save a young girl, with help from her mother's old hitwomen friends, from the assassin's own team.

Some of the action scenes are creative enough, like the hospital fight with everyone already injured from a previous fight, but some of the other fights don't look too good. Like some scenes were shot odd and the actors not doing any believable fighting.

@Rebelofnj,
I enjoyed it. But then I sort of dig the idea/genre of professional killer/berserker female exacting revenge.

@snood,
the "eight and three quarters"little girl in "Gunpowder" was great"I'm her apprentice" after helping her kill more bad guys after one paralyzed her. Watch "Kate" on Netflix for a modern update on film noir.

@MontereyJack,
A 2014 movie, This Is Where I Leave You, starring Jason Bateman and Jane Fonda as the mother of a family gathering for their father's funeral and Shiva .

Bateman is the most normal and likable character of the lot, and like all of these dysfunctional family movies the best and the worst attributes surface, mostly the worst.

One of the funniest characters is the rabbi, an old childhood pal of the brothers, a really a wild rabbi, and so far out that it makes you envy the congregation for the show. His childhood buddies do their best to embarrass him in front of his congregation calling him "Boner" and grabbing at his crotch.

I really enjoyed this movie. The Jason Bateman character has his own problems but still remains a likeable character. And it remains a comedy without running everybody through the wringer, though they do their best.

I don’t have it in me to watch yet another Clint Eastwood “grumpy old man with a heart of gold kicks butt and saves the day” movie.

But is anybody else going to see “Cry Macho”?

Just saw the Tom Hanks movie "News of the World", pretty good. Nothing tremendously special, but a good flick to pass a couple of hours in the plane.



Also watched "Twelve Mighty Orphans" and really liked that one and highly recommend it.

@engineer,
I just saw the movie Seven Pounds with Will Smith. It's a very beautiful film that gives us a hell of a lesson about the value of life and especially the value of others. What we take for granted may be an inconsiderable lack for some.

Not a movie, but I watched the first episodes of Asimov's Foundation.

I like what I've seen so far. The changes that they made to make it work for TV are okay with me.

I don't mind that they made Salvor Hardin and Gaal Dornick female characters, but seeing R. Daneel Olivaw presented as female is a bit jarring (it's not a dealbreaker however).

——————————————————

Also not a movie, but I went to my first rock concert in 27 years.

I went into town to take advantage of the offer for $1000 off on new iPhones, and found that Megadeth was going to be playing at a nearby Indian casino that night. I just couldn't resist going to a Megadeth concert that was so close by to me.

Dave Mustaine hasn't diminished any with age. He is still one of the best guitarists in the world.

Hopefully I didn't catch Covid at the concert. Delta is rampaging quite severely in my area right now. I've been vaccinated though, and know to pursue monoclonal antibodies if I get sick.

Just finished the 2nd season of Godfather of Harlem. I love the show, Forest Whitaker and Vincent D'Onofrio two great actors going head to head.
Based loosely on Bumpy Johnson played by Forest.
Great supporting cast including Paul Sorvino, Ilfenesh Hadera, Chazz Palminteri, Nigel Thatch and the brilliant Giancarlo Esposito.
Is there anything Giancarlo Esposito isn't in these days?.
He's showed up in the Mandalorian and one of my favourite shows The Boys.
He's also fronting some new x-box game.
The man is certainly making hay.

As I said the show is based loosely on Bumpy Johnson and the storylines take in obviously the drugs and the mafia but also Malcom X and the Nation of Islam, the fight for civil rights and against racism.
Ali even shows up.

Brilliant show. I'm not sure if it's getting a season 3, it should but with the idiots that decide these things who knows if it will.

@farmerman,
Fair play to you, you actually got to the end of one of his movies.

I've never seen The Pig and never will.

The last 3 films of his I tried to watch were Prisoners of the Ghostland lasted 10mins, Willy's Wonderland lasted 10mins and Jiu Jitsu lasted 5mins.

I did watch and finish Color Out of Space in which he gets to do his full on loony routine.
Only thing I took away from the film was how has it come to this for Joely Richardson.


Now here's the thing every now and then he makes a goodish one and I'd say Running with the Devil is one.
I enjoyed it, He's ably backed up by Laurence Fishburne.
It's an ok movie, give it a go.


I think the movie's on YouTube.

The best 2.3 hours I’ve spent in a movie theatre for a couple of years was yesterday, seeing No Time to Die. If I never see another Bond movie, I can say this one had everything in it for which I love Bond movies.

It’s going to be hard as heck not to be a spoiler. I’m just BUSTING to tell someone about it, but I know how much I hate it if someone spoils an anticipated movie for me.

@eurocelticyankee,
The best one of his that comes to mind is Matchstick Men.

If you haven’t seen that one, check it out.

Saw the new horror film Malignant, directed by James Wan (The Conjuring 1 & 2, Aquaman)

It is about a woman who starts to have visions of a serial killer who is killing her old doctors, and she believes the killings are done by her old imaginary friend. The murders are gruesome and it is amusing to see police characters (the kind of characters one would see in regular police TV dramas) in a horror film setting.

Then the wild reveal of the killer happens then the film becomes more bloody and gorier from there.

Waiting with great interest to see Denzel as the titular character in the Scottish Play.

It’s reputed to be conceived quite differently.

I think I found sort of an unheralded gem on Prime Video. It’s a drama titled Small Engine Repair. It’s about a trio of childhood friends getting together for a drunken reunion. I was immediately interested in the characters (Jon Bernthal is excellent as usual, and great acting all around), and there is a twist I didn’t see coming.

@snood,
Just saw the new Bond movie. We'll have to decide what the statue of limitations is for movie spoilers.
