    The middle movies in these trilogies are usually the best though, right? The Two Towers rocks. The Return of the King is great and won all the Oscars, but, it's still the wrap it up story, The Two Towers is better.

    Yes, first time since I saw it originally in college.

    I see that Terry Gilliam’s “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” is available to stream. Adam Drives, and personal fave Jonathan Pryce. I may have found my evening.

    (Although I usually watch “The Longest Day” every D-Day, and that kind of eats up the movie-watching desire for one day).

    They’re airing peloton races with famous athletes on ESPN. The NBA can’t get book soon enough...

    Yes, generally I would agree.

    3 hour movies can be a bit of a slog.

    This was the era when sitcoms reigned. Now everything leans to the macabre.

    There were 5 separate directors IIRC. Just a beast of a film.

    The single shot take of the approach to the casino is mind-blowing.

    Thrillers based on the exploits of former Nazis are out of fashion now. I don't remember seeing a new one in awhile.

    Nazis are still kinda go to villains, but less so. I'm talking about the sub genre though of Nazis who never gave up the cause and are secretly plotting for years to do things that would bring Hitler back, that kind of stuff. There was one book that I don't think was ever made into a movie where a group had kept Hitler's frozen head. They were funding research to allow a transplantation to happen. Anybody else remember that book?

    Sort of makes sense. Our popular culture US villains shifted from Nazis to Ruskies to islamic terrorists to potential existential threats like climate change, pandemics, and AI.

    Aliens are always popular though. And clowns.

    I actually wouldn’t mind seeing that info graphic. Movie/TV villain by type plotted over time to see how art imitates life.

    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'
