Excellent set and great acting, but a boring and oft-repeated story, and a few scientific fuck ups (Moon gravity? How does it compare to Earth gravity? Why does it only apply when you go outside? And how do you see the Earth from the far side of the tidally locked Moon?)

would have been so much better if they played it straight instead of having a retarded plot twist

Pretty good special effects for 1933. 

Also free on YouTube temporarily and well recommended in you want some vintage sci-fi horror. 

This film coincidentally puts me at just 100 more movies to go until my next major milestone of 2500 movies watched. 

Saw this not long ago and I was very impressed with the special effects. It also made a great effort to stick to the original story.

James Bond vs James T. Kirk (Not counting any more!)
Much improved over Diamonds are Forever! Roger Moore's first outing as Bond and he fits straight in. There's brilliant boat chases, which include a world record boat jump, there's silly gadgets, there's gratuitous female nudity, there's sheriff car wrecks Dukes of Hazzard style. The supernatural/voodoo element to the story is a little silly, but it was a different time.
And as someone who wasn't really familiar with the theme song except through the GnR cover, the original fucking rocks!

A 2020 update of the 1965 classic. On the positive, the setting is more realistic (trees and snow!), the action is more convincing (blood and guts and explosions), and it's a more compressed story, just taking on a single battle instead of the entire weeks long campaign. It's also an hour shorter.

But it's just not as enjoyable as the flawed original. There's no Telly Savalas or Henry Fonda sized personalities in it. Sure, there's Billy Zane and Tom Berenger to add a bit of star power, but they aren't of the Savalas/Fonda calibre. It's not a bad movie by any means. It's just overshadowed.

Very solid western meets film noir movie. There are a few issues with the plot that prevent it from being true upper echelon, but overall it's a good example of this genre mix.

Instead Heat is a masterpiece three hour movie.

Thief is so good, the only Michael Mann movie I really love

(Manhunter is pretty good as well, and Heat could have been a great 2 hour long movie)

They date back all the way to 1945.

I have a great love for Moomins that endures to this day. LOL

This wasn't so great though. 

I hold very fond memories of the 1990s anime of them. 

I remember them from my childhood, and that must have been the 1970s!
