El Cid

Enjoyed the film “El Cid” (1961) tonight on DVD. Three hours of epic adventures coupled with a romantic saga that ends in tears and grandeur. Charlton Heston was a great actor in his day and when you paired him up with Sophia Loren you had plenty of sparks coming off that screen. 41 more words

Rio Lobo

Watched “Rio Lobo” (1970) with good old John Wayne tonight and with him you know what you get. Jack Elam stands out (he always did) and although there may not be much of a plot (the film opens up with a spectacular gold robbery and it goes on from there) it is still good for the soul to spend some time with a classic western like this. 44 more words

Ben 10: Race Against Time

The movie isn’t quite as good as the show and isn’t particularly necessary. However it is fun for young fans of the TV series and a movie I enjoyed in my youth. 16 more words
