    I am getting excited about the new releases due in the coming months.

    Dune... One of my favorites. I thought the original was done well but maybe a bit disjointed and rushed at the end. I hope the new one stands out as a successful retelling.

    The Matrix 4... You had me at "The Matrix", one of my all time favorite movies. I've seen the first one at least 50 times. I was less thrilled with each sequel but I still watched them. I'm looking forward to the 4 and I have high hopes for a good solid storyline.

    Get Back... (I mistyped with "Let It Be") The first version always made me feel as if it was under a cloud. I loved the music but it just always kinda bummed me out. I really want to see the lads having fun and making good music.

    No Time To Die... Daniel Craig is my personal favorite Bond. He's vulnerable and you MIGHT just kill him if you do it right. He's confident but troubled. This is his last one and then the torch is passed to a new Bond. I'd hate to have to follow him in the role.

    The Many Saints of Newark... I've watched "The Sopranos" from beginning to end at least four times. There's so much to the story that it really took me that many times to catch a lot of it that got by me the first time or two. I want to know the story before the story.

    The Last Duel... I love medieval stories. Matt Damon is, in my opinion, sometimes a great actor. When I go to France, hopefully next year, I want to see where the battle of Agincourt took place. (Agincourt has nothing to do with this movie but it is SUCH a great battle and the tale of this great battle is, to me, amazing.)

    Are there any movies coming up that have piqued your interest?

    you mean "Get Back!", the Beatles doc which uses the Nagra Reels?

    The album was not done right.

    Closer to true form, listen to Cirque' de Sole' LOVE album.

    I used to have all the audio from the original documentary. You can download it from some places online. The Beatles used some of it for the Anthology DVD series.

    but, LOVE, was done, by Cirque'. When they got the idea to do an acrobatic theatrical performance to the Beatles, they hooked up w/ George & George. (Martin & Harrison). They got it underway, & consulted w/ Paul & Yoko.

    Then, George got sick. (& died) He handed it off to Paul & Yoko, but George Martin was at the helm of it all, along w/ his son, doing all the heavy lifting. Not everything about it is "correct", but, listen all the way through...

    Back when the album came out, the band split up, reneging on their rights to creative input. Then the label fired George Martin.

    The band were never happy w/ the corporate production of it.

    On the Cirque' production, George digitized thousands & thousands of individual tracks & they went through & chose the parts & put them all together...

    Consider it done !

    All great choices in movies. I could never do the Matrix and Beatles doc though. A new Jack Reacher would be good too

    I just watched "The Many Saints of Newark" at home. I'm glad I didn't pay to see it at the theater. I won't spoil it for you.

    Dune was awesome! Saw it in the theater Saturday and at home on HBO max yesterday. Theater was better, I’ve got a great sound system but it doesn’t compare, it’s a made for big screen production.

    Yeah, I could be watching it at home but the director said it is intended for a BIG theater screen so that's where I'm gonna see it.

    Yeah I saw his “watching it on small screen is like a speedboat in a bathtub” or whatever. I’m glad I saw it in the theater first. However if you’re hard of hearing there are a lot of whispers that you’ll miss, seeing at home with Close captions helped my wife figure out what she’d missed.

    I saw it at home, but... yeah, I actually didn't really care for the '84 version...

    I'll have to watch it again though. I didn't turn everything off, so, I probably missed a lot. It's a slower paced movie, which I don't mind, as long as there's not a lot of dead space, but, that's why I didn't care for it so much. Seemed more dead space than action &/or dialogue...

    It also didn't seem to have any build, or momentum. :shrug:

    Dune... NAILED IT. I've waited nearly thirty years for this movie to be done right. Part one is very good, imho.
