I really enjoyed it.
I was surprised how it managed to be so serious whilst still being so silly and flippant. Got the stupidness of Nazism along with its wickedness, how fast it came to dominate, how fast it disappeared. How easy it can be us.

Bad boys for life.You know what you are going to get when you watch this movie pure hollywood i did enjoy it though a film when you do not know what to watch it's ok.Then i watched Call of the wild with Harrison ford again ok movie but found bits seemed to be animated or computer generated.this is a time filler

The movie i found better than call of the wild is with william defoe and it is called TOGO, which is about a dog too which i found better and more interesting and maybe more realistic perhaps.But i suppose in lockdown both would pass a couple of hours

Losing in Love
A low budget, indie effort and an easy watch.
There's the occasional 'narration' from the main character and every now and then other characters who otherwise have no speaking parts add a bit of the narration as if they are talking.

I don't think I've ever seen that technique for story telling before.

In the same vein, Film 4 in the UK are currently doing a run of Jason Statham films, always good chases in those.

No criticism intended, nothing wrong with action movies for entertainment, but many of the titles you've recommended fall well within this category don't they?

Favourite chase sequences- French Connection and Puppet on a Chain. The latter looks a bit dated now.

I rewatched "Waterloo" with Rod Steiger. Yonks old, but the pre-CGI battle scenes are impressive and you gotta love steiger as the little guy.... "Soldiers! If you want to shoot your Emperor..... here I am!!"

Classic

The Last Thing He Wanted. Ben Affleck and Ann Hathaway star in this Netflix movie. This has got to be one of the worst movies we have ever seen. 0/10
