    Hmm see I slightly prefer A Matter of Life and Death over Colonel Blimp, but I own and love both. See I love Portrait but it wouldn't make my list either. I think my local library has Come and See so I don't have any excuse unless their copy is all beat up. Thanks for the response.

    Come and See isn't even on a streaming service right now and local libraries vary in what they have on site. I mean I haven't seen it either lol.

    Love Chinatown, it's one of those movies that I always watch when it's on TCM.

    Heh, I didn't even know if it played regularly on TCM these days; I thought it might be too recent for them, or something.

    It's a 1970s movie so no, it's not too recent.

    My goal for next year is to watch more movies from POC and women directors, since my top 10 of all time was mostly just old white guys. I started with Desperately Seeking Susan, which I enjoyed a lot even though the story and plot are really basic and not terribly important. What matters is the movie's characters, who I liked a lot, and it was fun to see cameos from actors who became established later on. It seems to me that 1980s NYC is either portrayed as a violent nightmare or a wonderful melting pot, not much in-between, ha ha. Seen thanks to Tubi.

    My goal is to watch more movies. 2022 may have been my lowest count since I was a teenager.

    Heh 2022 was the most I've ever seen in a year. 278 first time watches, probably at least 40 rewatches.

    Six months living with the retired in-laws was a big part of it.

    Back on the old account cause I tried using the new one, it just keeps refusing to load the site lol. Oh well. Anyways I finally saw Quick Change, can't recall who was a huge fan of that movie here but someone was. I loved it, what a wonderfully funny and entertaining movie. There is a bus scene that is oddly more suspenseful and anxiety inducing than a lot of thrillers I've seen over the past couple of years. The cast is great too, with of course Bill Murray front and center.

    A lot of the movie works as both a love letter to NYC and as a satire of it's more outrageous qualities. Viewed thanks to Tubi, which rocks.

    I appreciated Jordan's direction (as I usually do), but the reveal was wild to me. Not in the reveal of the you know what, but in Rea's character reaction to it. I thought that was more crazy. But maybe its an "of that era" situation. I was late to this movie.

    I don't disagree. It was just odd coming to the film late as I did.

    Huh, I absolutely loved The Crying Game. I mean everyone on the Internet gave away the twist ages ago. I haven't seen it in years so I wouldn't be able to properly review that one unless I fully refreshed my memory. Rea was great in that flick.
