Some more classic Walter Matthau:

A New Leaf, very good movie with Elaine May.

I love how he tries to own and drive a Ferrari in NYC

Jack Lemmon & Walter Matthau was a great team.

Grumpy Old Men & Grumpier Old Men is also highly recommended.
Burgess Meredith is hilarious in those two movies.

A damn fine actor assuredly, though in his shoes, I am not sure I would have given the green light to all the scenery portion depicting his character as a rookie unable to ride a horse properly. By the way, it's Gallipoli (1981) with two L's (three in total).

It's a movie from the 40's, most of us didn't actually get to experience what this movie did when it came out


I actually did see a movie; the gruesome Spanish movie the Platform on Netflix.

It's pretty much another Cube movie, except with a physically impossible prison tower instead of a physically impossible cube structure. It's quite gory, if you can't stomach cannibalism... give it a pass. Otherwise, watch if you like gory slow paced art house movies. If you look past all the gore... it's actually a pretty interesting movie, it has enough intrigue to it to keep me glued. It ain't your regular Hollywood flick, that's for sure!

7.5/10

But with the FBI pushing Jim to inform on his flashy former dealer, Morgan Hetrick and John's financing falling through the cracks, things are far from idyllic...and about to take a dark turn. Based on the real events that would become the celebrity scandal of its generation.

An interesting biopic movie about DeLorean's part of life. Had a good time watching it.

7.5/10

It's a long time I haven't followed the Eurovision but after this movie, I will for sure watch it next year
Two hours of a fun and fresh movie with up and downs, nice voices, songs and humour.
Even a cool "caméo" of ancient Eurovision's participants.
Really enjoyed watching it.

8/10

I've seen new Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) and I quite like it. As far better Terminator movie since last 3 disappointments. I can see this as new future line for movies, if they decide to continue. Having Arnold and Linda back together one more time is also very nice.

^ This movie disappointed me and I found it far below the previous one (Terminator Genesis).
It has nice ideas (and some really dumb - "daddy" terminator just to mention the worst in my opinion) but overall, it's far from what I have expected for a "James Cameron's sequel".
Looking at the box office, it's also the worst of the 6 movies.

For me it's only a small 5.5/10
