Brother Joe,

Great picks:

The Mission - Great DeNiro flick, the locals had an interesting use for their waterfall.  Mandatory viewing for Fordham Graduates. 

As I recall Black Robe had that spooky American Indian midget (sorry little person) who was treated as some kind of Shaman.  Yes, definitely not for the fainthearted.

Haven't seen it but Netflix has Romero on dvd.

We watched "The Spy Who Came In From The Cold" this weekend after visiting The Berlin Wall a few weeks ago.  It was just as effective as it was during its release more than forty years ago.  Richard Burton and Claire Bloom were outstanding. 

I used to devour spy novels and loved John LeCarre.  This brought the old genre back to my attention again.

Jim,
Just lost a reply here -

Thanks for the Netflix news on the Romero dvd; I'll check it out.

This trio of films was put together by a Bro at Oakdale back in the 90's for a group of students headed to join the Mexican La Sallian Youth in their week of catechizing the youths of priestless pueblos throughout MX.  The Canadians who already had active La Sallian Youth groups joined us from the US just beginning the movement here.  The ancient Spanish Chapels seeing a priest once a year or so were the loci of the week's activities.
The films were required viewing which led to fine exchanges here.  I'd watch them again anytime.

After reading the worst reviews ever, I had to see "Old Dogs". It seems to me the more critics savage a comedy, the better I like it! No exception here. I laugh almost none stop. The movie has a really nothing plot, but it moves the story along from one laugh to another.

A rarity nowadays! Not a single foul word, dirty joke,or even double-entrendre. Something you can take you adolescent grand kids to see with you, and I think everyone will laugh and no one will feel uneasy. (The only caution is Robin Williams' character finds out he fathered twins during a fling seven years ago.)

I don't know if you'll watch it over and over, but IMHO it's worth seeing at least once. Dopiness at it's best! (From an expert on the subject.)

  Might as well add a new one to the list. Blind Side was released last week and is a great movie.  It's one that people will be watching for years.
