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.

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!

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.

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?)

Not as good as its reputation, in my opinion, but an enjoyable quirky film. The ending is gut-wrenching though.

One the better movies I've found on this current subscription to Shudder. Really trippy shit with a heavy soundtrack that includes work from Electric Wizard and Isis.

The whole thing's as bizarre as it is disturbing.

Part two of six. 



Very solid western. Randolph Scott is growing on me with the last few of his westerns I've seen. Could take or leave the first ones I saw.
