    Random Comments and Questions re: Raising Arizona (1987):

    1) I saw this movie theatrically back in 1987.

    2) This was my first Coen Bros movie since I didn't see Blood Simple on VHS until a few years later.

    3) I don't know how many times I've seen it since but it's probably close to 10 times.

    4) It *still* holds up really well.

    5) IMDB notes filming date around Feb 1986. Holly Hunter was 27 and Nicolas Cage was 22. Amazing work there.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Random Comments and Questions re: Overlord (2018):

    1) The movie took a hair too long to get to the "What the hell are these Nazis doing?" stage. And having Boyce go in to the heart of the place and all the way back out was just odd.

    2) I *knew* Chase (Iain De Caestecker) looked familiar. He was the lead on an awesome (1 Season!?) BBC TV show called The Fades.

    3) The set piece at the end where Boyce has to book it out the bunker before the place falls down around him is very well done.

    Subject matter off the beaten path in a good way. Pleasantly surprised at how assured and confident the direction was. Soskas should try their hands at someone else's script. The future is bright.
