For a pedo, Allen sure has been with a now-50-year-old for nearly 30 years.

It's just weird, that's all. A little creepy, if you want to run to that judgment on account of the age gap which he signposted as far back as Manhattan in 1979 (see above quote, I reckon).

Michael Jackson was a pedo but I'll never backball Off The Wall.

Anyway, tim, I told you not to bother with that A Rainy Day in NY garbage. And you're right, plenty of his fillums miss the mark or are overrated. Match Point was a piece of sh!t. Bullets Over Broadway, Annie Hall, Crimes and Misdemeanours, Midnight in Paris, Broadway Danny Rose, The Purple Rose Of Cairo, Hannah and Her Sisters are some of his better flicks.

I've never really got into his early screwball stuff. My Dad thought his early stand-up was hilarious.
Cmon spook, as soon as someone tells me not to watch something I’ll absolutely watch it!

So I took a leaf out of Scoop's book last night on old movies & re-watched David Fincher's Fight Club for the first time in a long time with my 17 year old son. Damn is that one brilliant movie. I probably enjoyed it more now than I did at the time it was released & I loved it back then.

I watched it a few weeks ago too. Only movie I've ever watched three times at the cinema.

Thought Woody Allen movies were always average after watching that doco, I’ve no interest in going back over them.

If anyone is looking for something go watch The Upside on Amazon with Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston and Nicole Kidman. It’s a beauty.

without sounding like a tosser the original French version is better.

Why would watching a doco change how good or bad a film is that was made before the documentary?

Unhinged. Pretty ordinary. Dumb storyline. Russell Crowe plays his part pretty well but a dumb, pointless, seen it before type of movie otherwise.

Not just because i watch a doco about the director though
Not sure. Many reasons not to like a movie you used to like and no longer liking an actor/actress seems to be reasonable one. I can't watch House of Cards now due to Kevin Spacey for example.

I can listen to Roxy Music or The Smiths even though the singers are selfish Tory dicks. Mozart banged hookers. Led Zepp banged underage groupies. Picasso was a selfish narcissist. Stanley Kubrick bullied Shelley Duval to get that performance in The Shining.

Anyway, each to their own.

I liked Match Point.

But for me, Woody’s zenith is Bananas, Sleeper and Love and Death, which as you say Spook, he sign-posted in Manhattan.

Covid has bit the movie industry hard. Started watching two absolute stinkers tonight on Prime & Netflix not even worth mentioning. Literally zero decent new content out. I miss good movies.

This is like watching a VFL game on TV and saying footy is crap. Go to the cinema. The Father is extraordinary. Promising Young Woman is a film that will be spoken about for decades. And when Quo Vadis, Aida? screens in Aus, go see it.

Bullets over Broadway, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Manhattan Murder Mystery.

Of the newer stuff Match Point was ok, Rainy Day was ok except the ending, Wonder Wheel was painful. Blue Jasmine great, Vikki Christina Barcelona hilarious.

Looking forward to The Father.
I saw Promising young woman. I’d already forgotten it until you mentioned it.
Will check out the other.
Last film I saw at the cinemas was The Dry which was great.
