XXXVII. Silent Shakespeare
1. Silent Shakespeare (compendium 1899-1911 - total 75m)
a. King John (UK 1899, 1m)
b. The tempest (UK 1908, 12m)
c. A midsummer night’s dream (1909, 11m)
d. King Lear (1909, 16m)
e. Twelfth night (UK 1910, 13m)
f. Il mercante di Venezia (Italy 1911, 9m)
g. Richard III (UK 1911, 23m)
2. Othello (Ger 22)
3. Marcantonio e Cleopatra (Italy 1913)
4. Romeo und Julia im Schnee (Ger 1920)
5. Hamlet (Konig Hamlet) - (Ger 1921)

The compendium was a mixed bag, some were condensed versions and some were excerpts - all pretty forgettable.

Otello has Emil Jannings in the title role.
Marcantonio e Cleopatra is kind of peplum, I guess.
Romeo und Julia im Schnee is a Lubitsch comedy, on the short side.

I was most interested in Hamlet, with Asta Nielsen in the title role. The premise here is that the longed-for heir turned out to be a girl; the king was rumored killed in battle, so the queen announced that she had had a son, and Hamlet was raised as a boy. The film seems to have been inspired by some American literary scholar's hypothesis that Hamlet's being female would explain a lot of his quirks in the play. And it certaiinly does that in a most intriguing way.

I can't remember who linked here recently (3eyes?), but I wanted to try this one. So here's my first entry:

1. Bikinis
a) Bikini Girls v Dinosaurs (2014)
b) Bikini Model Academy (2014)
c) The Parisienne and the Prudes AKA The Bashful Bikini (1964)
d) Bikini Med School (1994)
e) Bikini Detectives (2011)

Sometimes, I like to watch really terrible movies just so I can experience the low end of the bell curve of movie quality, which helps me better appreciate the high end. And this batch definitely fit the low end (ratings were 1, 3, 1, 1, and 2, respectively, out of 10). Oy. Next group will be much more interesting.

2. American Crime Documentaries
a) Into the Abyss (2011)
b) Lost for Life (2013)
c) Goodnight, Sugar Babe: The Killing of Vera Jo Reigle (2013)
d) Missing 411 (2016)
e) Evil Genius: The True Story of America's Most Diabolical Bank Heist (2018) [Miniseries, 4 episodes]

My initial motivation behind this was to watch some true crime documentaries, as I tend to find them enjoyable ways to pass the time. But only C and E (and kinda D) hit that. Into the Abyss (accidental Herzog watch!) hit on the very final potential consequence of crime, while Lost for Life talks about people at the beginning of the end - young adults sentenced to life without parole for crimes committed before they turned 18. Evil Genius was probably my favorite of the batch, mainly because I remember the media coverage of the crime.

3. Sex Documentaries
a) Orgasm Inc. (2009)
b) The Porn Factor (2016)
c) Sex(Ed) the Movie (2014)
d) Children of God (1994)
e) Sexters (2013)

There are a shocking number of crappy documentaries about sex out there. Some because they are overly judgmental (Orgasm Inc., The Porn Factor), some which just aren't done well (Children of God, Sexters), and some of which just have a stupid premise (Sexters). Sex(Ed) was pretty interesting, though disheartening at the same time because of how much religiosity pervades US culture.

IX. Meathead
Alex & Emma (2003) also acting
The Bucket List (2007)
Flipped (2010)
8 (2012)
The Magic of Belle Isle (2012)
Being Charlie (2015)
LBJ (2016)
Shock and Awe (2017) also acting

Yes, 8 of a kind.

It's the only director I'll do this with so that's the reason for the 8. Rob Reiner used to be my favorite director, and from 1984 to 1992 he didn't make a weak movie. The Sure Thing was maybe the weakest as a typical 80s high school flick.

But then came 1994 and North and everything fell apart. Not only is it is a terrible movie, it is one of the worst movies ever made
I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it.
- Roger Ebert
So the movies after that just went boring. Still doing romantic comedies put focusing more on the after marriage drama than the cute love-at-first-sight ones.

By coincidence I happened to see And So It Goes some years later. And not only did the movie loose the humor without Nora Wphrons screenplays. This one has one of the worst written characters in a romcom Ive ever seen. You simply don't want to him to get into a relationship in the end. So again 1/10.

After that I basically left his filmography alltogether. And it wasn't before I saw he was making a Lyndon B. Johnson anything interested me.

As some of these also are well under 100 checks they fit 1-2 challenges right now, so it was time to catch up.

There is none of these that come close to the 1984-92 movies. The Bucket List is maybe the closest. But basically Reiner are now 71 and it shows in the themes he does. Maybe he just do full-blown comedies like Carl Reiner used to do.

So with all features seen, I'll go back and see some more All in the Family episodes instead.

XXXIX. German movies made under Hitler
1. Hitler’s Irish movies (Ireland 07, doc)
2. Mein Leben für Irland (Ger 41)
3. Napoleon ist an allem schuld (Ger 38)
4. Münchhausen (Ger 43)

#2. is an example cited in #1 - all about the evil Brits; Irish may agree with sentiment but find view of Ireland rather peculiar.
#3. maybe my favorite of the lot, engaging screwball comedy.
#4. enjoyable enough
#5. Evil British capitalists are intent on manipulating stock price and so refuse to slow down despite warnings by noble German officer (only Kraut on board).

Solid stuff and glad i watched them all.

I've started and stopped nearly half a dozen of these since I last posted, but I finally finished one. I started with the first two because I have fond memories of them and haven't seen them in a few years. Still enjoyable, though my opinion has definitely dropped over time. C and D were new watches, and didn't even meet the low expectations I had for them. E was another rewatch and dropped even further in my esteem. Dragon Emperor would have been much better served if it had written the Evie character out of the script rather than recasting her.

As part of Women's history month, I thought it would be fun to start off with some documentaries made by women about women. Nothing from this batch stands out as a must-watch, though I did enjoy The Rachel Divide the most. I thought there was a lot to unpack in that story, and the fact that it's from my hometown didn't hurt any. The last two are apparently underseen enough that I had to import them to ICM and add them to TMDB. The first two are on Netflix, the latter three are on Kanopy.

XLI. Koreans on the Korean War
1. Welkkeom tu Dongmakgol / Battleground 625 (S Kor 05)
2. So nyun bbal jjin san / Boy partisans / Teen Guerrillas (North Korea 51)
3. Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War (S Korea 04)
4. In-cheon sang-ryuk jak-jeon / Operation Chromite (S Kor 16)
5. Bimujang jidae / The demilitarized zone (S Korea 65)

#1 is quite a happy movie, though not without its grim moments, about a village where folks from all sides coexist peacefully for the most part. #2 is a typical WW II propaganda movie but with the Americans where the Nazis would be. #3 and #4 are the only ones with much fighting - #3 has an emotional core while #4 is more an, uh, "action procedural." #5 concerns two children wandering around the demilitarized zone and is quite a tearjerker.

That's a pretty cool set there (pentology?) - I think its really interesting to hear about wars from the non-American perspective. l'm watching Burns' The Vietnam War now and am enthralled at how they're interviewing Viet Cong soldiers as well. IIRC, we were chatting about this during the Doc challenge in Dec, but Wife and I are just now getting back to it.

Haven't seen any of yours there, but the only one I've see that would fit that is The Murmuring - a Koren doc about comfort women during the Korean war. And that was pretty damn interesting.

Yes, Max, I love seeking out war films from odd angles. WW I, frinstance:

La paura degli aeromobili nemici /The Fear of Zeppelins (It 1915) - slapstick comedy short
Sarajevski atentat /The Day That Shook the World (Yugo 1975) - Serbian take on the assassination that started it all
Baruto no Gakuen / The Ode to Joy (Jap 06) - Ger POWs in Japan (which was on Allied side during WWI). - not watchable quality, tho
Field Punishment No. 1 (NZ 14) - group of NZ COs, shipped to Europe against their will, resolutely deny being soldiers.

XLII. Algerian war of independence (1954-62)
1. Au service de la France / A very secret service (Fr 15-18, TV series - Sn 1-2, 24 eps)
2. Loin des hommes / Far from men (Fr 14)
3. Lost command (US 66)
4. Zabana! (Algeria 12)
5. Legion of Honor / Deserter (UK 02)

#2-4 are set during the early stages of the war. #2 is a road movie (buddies are Pied Noir teacher of Arab kids and an Arab who killed his cousin); the only point where the war is seen is when they get captured by some rebel soldiers. #3 is a Hollywood actioner with Anthony Quinn and Alain Delon. #4 is about the first Algerian rebel to be guillotined.

#1 and #5 are set in the 60s. I think I learned the most from #5, which views things from an outsider's perspective (A British Legionnaire gets to know people on all sides as the war is coming to an end. #1 lampoons the French intelligence service. I'm sure I missed a lot of the humor that French viewers would have got, but it was lots of fun. The man in charge of African affairs has some shady business affairs in Algeria which drive some of the plot.

This war is still a sore subject in France and of little interest to Americans; so, although it is now easier for the French to make films about it than it was for most of the 20th century, it's hard to get access to them in the US (I no longer have access to the Weighty Place). Films from the Algerian side are likewise hard to come by but I lucked into one (#4) on Amazon Prime. La battaglia di Algeri (Italy 1966) remains the gold standard. I have also seen Tu ne tueras point (Fr/It/Yugo 61) which concerns conscientious objection and was banned in France until 1963.

Doing it a bit different this time. With the magic of random.org I've let chance make my choice. First by picking between 1-26 and then 1-10000 (imdb only show the first 10000 keywords of each letter, so I wont see five movies about Soup here. S only goes to ship-schematic f,ex) I of course pick the closest keyword that have more than 5 titles.

XI. Severed Heads
01. Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974) obviously
02. Death to Smoochy (2002)
03. Kick.Ass 2 (2013)
04. Hereditary (2018)
05. Cold Pursuit (2019)

e) Friday the 13th (1980)

I was in a movie funk last month, so I thought I'd try a movie series to break myself out of it. Sleepaway Camp seemed just terrible enough that it might be "so bad its good."And it mostly was - the first rubbed me the wrong way by setting up a "trans" person as the villain, but it was clearly the best made film. 2 and 3 were verging into the "so bad it's good" territory, and had some dark comedic elements along with traditional slasher bits. The fourth shouldn't exist - it's about 10 minutes of new footage and 60 minutes of recycled footage from the first three. And I had to round out the camp theme with Friday the 13th, which my wife had never seen.

HM: Zombies (2019)

I've never been really into Zombie films, and to be honest, I'm still not, but given the popularity, I wanted to dive in and watch a few. Dawn of the Dead was the clear highlight, and a not surprising addition to my favorites list; lots of subtext to it that elevated it beyond a basic gore film. Most of the rest are good solid gorefests. The last one isn't even good enough to settle on a title.

Honorable mention goes to the 2019 short, available on MUBI at the moment, and uses the more colloquial definition of "zombie" about how people become mindless when looking at their phone and listening to music. Very cool music short with cool costuming and aesthetics.

For some reason, watching The Meg (2018) a little while ago inspired an interest in sharks in me. Rather, terrible shark movies. So this theme is low-rated shark movies, all of which qualified for the Low-IMDB challenge. And these are certainly setting new lows for film quality. Planet of the Sharks is probably the worst, as it took itself too seriously for how bad the film was. Surprisingly, Sharkansas Women's Prison Massacre was the best - I expected little more than a sexploitation film, but there was no nudity, and tons of tongue-in-cheek humor and self awareness. This has been an oddly fun round.

I never knew there were five elements. You can try the five horsemen of the apocalypse next.

There are 5 elements for Captain Planet too, but the last one is Heart.

Anyhow, from the Low IMDB challenge
XIII. Yule in July

I. Santa's Boot Camp (2016) USA 3 checks
II. Santa Claws (2014) USA 20 checks
III. Santa's Slay (2005) Canada | USA 547 checks
IV. Santa's Summer House (2012) USA 7 checks
V. Santa Who? The Wonderful World of Disney - S04E05 (2000) USA 96 checks

Santa is also real in all these 5.
