Taking a break from bad movies (a la, MST3K) for a good one, that being The Hound of the Baskervilles (the Basil Rathbone version).  Excellent movie, and I feel inclined to watch several more of the Rathbone flicks.  Not all fourteen, but certainly two or three.

i bought a collection of them a few years back when i was on a Holmes kick, i really enjoyed them! they're definitely the epitome of sherlock holmes.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - (1969) - B+
--> Great chemistry between Newman and Redford. I also enjoyed the many vistas that were beautifully shot. The plot slowns down quite a bit towards the end though.

What We Did on Our Holiday - (2014) - B+
--> An interesting story, with a nice ending. Very enjoyable.

Strictly Ballroom - (1992) - B
--> Luhrmann went for an over-the-top style, with most of the characters being caricatures, especially the mother and the head of the jury. Enjoyable, although a bit predictable.

The Way - (2010) - B-
--> Good movie about a father tracing the footsteps of his son (and going beyond) on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. Unfortunately, due to the BBC not sticking to its programming schedule, my recording cut off before the end of the film. I think I missed the last 10 minutes or so.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes - (2011) - B
--> For some reason I'm not that interesting in the Planet of the Apes series, but this movie wasn't bad. Andy Serkis stands out as Caesar.

Philomena - (2013) - A-
--> Touching movie about an Irish woman on a quest for her long-lost son. Great performance by Judi Dench.

The Green Butchers - (2003) - B
--> Odd movie about two people opening up a new butcher shop.

Henry V - (1989) - B-
--> I read on wikipedia that this movie is considered one of the best Shakespeare adaptations ever made. The two speeches by Branagh were obviously well-acted, but in general the movie feels a bit forced and distant. Maybe I'm not familiar enough with Shakespeare's work, but the dialogue (which appears taken straight from the play) feels very dated and stiff.

The Lord of the Rings (film series) - (2001 - 2003) - A+
--> One of my favorite film series ever. I try to watch them every couple of years. It was a welcome revisit, as I hadn't seen them in about 3 years.

Blow Out - 1981) - A-
--> Clearly a film-lovers film. The plot is captivating and well-acted, but what stood out to me were all the recording/editing scenes by Travolta's character. It is clear that Brian De Palma spent a lot of time capturing these moments.
