I do like a list, hope you do too! Here’s what has been watched in November 2018.
Daredevil season 3 was a absolutely superb. A consistently brilliant series even more for the better as we watch this as a family. Love it, then Netflix cancel it! seriously WTF! Understand it with the other Marvel series but not with Daredevil. So much potential for another season 4.
Narcos is back but this time under the new title of Narcos Mexico. Following on with more stories of the white nose candy, big bucks and how the big cartels were formed and chased down by the DEA agents. Not as good as it’s predecessor but still an excellent addition to the series. Star of the show by far, Don Neto and features a few neat surprises which will be a big smile to your face.
That’s the TV, here’s the movies.
18 films this month and a total of 209 this year
474 since the start of the blog in January 2017.
No Way Out (1950) – Wolfman Rating 9 – IMDB Rating 7.4
Sidney Poitier in his first big film is amazing alongside crazed Richard Widmark. Pop on over to my Wolfman Review Here if you want to know what I thought.
The Scapegoat (1959) – Wolfman Rating 7 – IMDB Rating 7.1
Alec Guinness meets his doppelganger whilst holidaying in France. Could this chance meeting make his mundane life better? Bette Davis pops her head in.
Undertow (1949) – Wolfman Rating 8 – IMDB Rating 6.7
A fast paced film noir starring Scott Brady. Was given the heads up on this by Cinema Monolith. Jump over to his site for a great review of Undertow Here and find a YT link.
Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964) – Wolfman Rating 8 – IMDB Rating 7.7
Southern fried madness in this crazy tale told over a few decades. Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland give classic performances in this Robert Aldrich film.
Clue (1985) – Wolfman Rating 6 – IMDB Rating 7.3
Really thought I would of enjoyed this more. What a cast! Really a showcase for Tim Curry to go full manic. How he remembered all those lines whilst running around like a looney is quite incredible. Then again with Colleen Camp’s cleavage on show in a maids outfit I think I’d be running about trying to impress. I’m not sure it ever made it over to the UK on it’s original release? I’d certainly hadn’t heard of it.
Maya Angelou and Still I Rise (2016) – Wolfman Rating 8.5 – IMDB Rating 7.9
The remarkable story of writer, poet, actress, activist Maya Angelou. A documentary I watched with my daughter Nyah for her A-Level studies. A recommended and interesting watch.
The Night Comes for Us (2018) – Wolfman Rating 7.5 – IMDB Rating 7.1
The Raid guy Iko Uwais stars in another bonkers bloody and brutal Indonesian martial arts film. Father and Son action packed film and KFC night. It’s on Netflix.
They Drive by Night (1940) – Wolfman Rating 9 – IMDB Rating 7.3
I loved this trucking movie from Raoul Walsh starring George Raft and Humphrey Bogart. Pop on over for my review if you want to know why. Wolfie Write Up Here
Coach Carter (2005) – Wolfman Rating 7 – IMDB Rating 7.3
Wanted something I didn’t have to think about. Searching through Netflix I noticed I hadn’t seen this Samuel L Jackson college basketball film. It was ok. Great morals and values, could of been a bit shorter.
The Caine Mutiny (1954) – Wolfman Rating 8 – IMDB Rating 7.8
Fans of the British comedy Red Dwarf may or may not know that Humphrey Bogart’s stern Naval Captain Queeg was the idea for season 2 episode 5 ships computer take over by Queeg 500. I never knew. Then to top it, Bogie’s Queeg has steel worry balls too. Used later in the series by Rimmer. I let out a little squeal “Grind those balls, sir. Grind them!”
What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) – Wolfman Rating 8.5 – IMDB Rating 8.1
Finally I got to this classic Robert Aldrich film that stars that legendary feuding duo Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. No point doing a post when Eric over on his superb film blog Diary Of A Movie Maniac does a most excellent review. Pop over for a read.
Seven Faces of Dr. Lao (1964) – Wolfman Rating 7 – IMDB Rating 7.3
Perfect Sunday afternoon watching. A George Pal movie I hadn’t seen. Tony Randall plays seven parts in this wonderful fantasy, mystery, western. A film with good morals.
November proved to be another fun month with me ticking of a whole heap of Bette Davis and Humphrey Bogart films. I did see a few other fine films but have held them back for future posts. Keep an eye out for them over the next month.
Hope there were a few goodies in there you have seen and liked? Thoughts, recommends etc always welcome.
Keep watching the screens. Thanks for having a gander. Michael Wolfster
