Good Movies, August 2021
- Never Too Late, 1965 - ★★★.
Is there a more Herman Comics actor than Paul Ford?
- Demon Slayer — Kimetsu no Yaiba — The Movie: Mugen Train, 2020 - ★★★★.
If you asked me right after I watched it, I would have given it ten stars.
- No Sudden Move, 2021 - ★★★.
I don’t get it. Steven has money. He could buy a real camera. He doesn’t have to live like this.
- Manhunter, 1986 - ★★½.

- The Honeymoon Killers, 1970 - ★★★★.

- Paprika, 2006 - ★★★.
Sleepy rewatch on a Saturday.
- Come Live with Me, 1941 - ★★★★.

- Moulin Rouge, 1952 - ★★★.
What is the world coming to when a girl won’t even accept a horse?
- Kizumonogatari Part 1: Tekketsu, 2016 - ★★.
Hmm. Maybe starting at the beginning isn’t the easiest way to go with this one.
- Man Wanted, 1932 - ★★★★.
Everybody is funny and they get in and out in 60 minutes. No notes.
- Breaking News in Yuba County, 2021 - ★★★.
Mid-tier movies are precious and we need to protect them.
- The Last Seduction, 1994 - ★★★.
my only problem with the movie is the guy isn’t Kevin Bacon and it just so obviously should have been
