    There were at least three in that Terrence Hill series. I never noticed when I was a kid that (like Clint Eastwood's spaghetti westerns) the Italian translation was REALLY bad, but the action was great!

    So I watched The Batman a couple of nights ago. Really good movie. Three hours long. I was planning on watching half, but it was almost over before I realized it. The story was solid. I'm not overly keen on Pattison as Batman -- or, to be more accurate, I didn't like his brooding Bruce Wayne at all. His Batman persona was pretty good. Obvious set up for a sequel bringing the Joker in as an ally of the Riddler.

    Bullet Train was pretty good. All the actors were excellent. Some gags didn't land, but it didn't detract from anything. I'd give it 4/5.

    It might be best to wait for it to come to a streaming service for most people, though.

    Last episode ever of Better Call Saul next week. There is supposed to be a surprise. Don't have any idea what it is and even if I guessed I would probably get it wrong as I have been surprised many times in the turn of events in the Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul world.

    I'm gonna miss Saul. Great series. I was glad to see Kim re-surface. I predict Jimmy/Saul/Gene goes down in a blaze of glory the last episode. Who knows....maybe Carol Burnett will finish him off!

    Interesting finale. Glad to see Kim and Jimmy/Saul/Gene have that last cigarette together.

    Re: Two Thumbs Up

    Went back in time a bit with a show my wife wanted to watch. Bill Murray's The Man Who Knew Too Little. I had never seen it. The reviews aren't very good, but I thought it was fun. It's a fairly standard fish out of water tale, but enjoyable.

    Re: Two Thumbs Up

    Three recent shows we've kind of caught up on lately

    Rings of Power -- lot of hate from the fanboys, but I thought it built into being a pretty good show. Was pretty slow as they built the world and the back stories, but the pace picked up as the season progressed. Found the first season satisfying if not riveting. Has promise.

    Andor -- also had some build up time, but this is a pretty good show. It's a prequel to the best of the Disney Star Wars movies -- Rogue One. It's giving a picture of how Andor becomes part of the rebellion. Off to a very strong start.

    She-Hulk -- I've tried, but this one is just a flop. It's basically a super hero sitcom and it's mostly not funny. I don't know what they're thinking on this one. They seem to have a couple of underlying story arcs, but I don't find them interesting enough to live with the smirking storyline.

    Perry Mason on HBO. It is set in an earlier time than the old series and some of the characters are in different roles. Very good and they don't rush the plot to get a different plot each week making for stronger story development.

    Re: Two Thumbs Up

    Three Thousand Years of Longing Rented this movie today and I found it "magical". Nothing in it that will make you blush, get angry, stomp your foot, no real violence, not embarrassing situations or anything like that. It is a really good escape from reality of everyday life of today. It is one of the best movies I have seen in quite some time. It bombed at the theaters but the critics loved it.

    Saw Black Panther: Wakanda Forever the other day. Not a great movie. Way inferior to the first one. Marvel is not hitting well in the fourth round. This one had too many absurd decisions and motivations. Just not believable at all (even by the standards of a super hero movie).

    I wouldn't say pass, but I would say go to the cheap show.

    Devotion.

    Korean War was a transition from prop figther planes to jet.

    Good story line. Slower action, but well shot.

    Re: Two Thumbs Up

    A few holiday movie notes.

    Spirited -- I think it's already out of the theaters, but a fun movie/musical. Music by the same people who did Greatest Showman (though not that good). Fun story, well done by Will Farrell and Ryan Reynolds, with a very strong cast of dancers.

    Fabelmans -- hard pass. Supposed to be semi-autobiographical about Spielberg. Might be, but it's much more centered on his dysfunctional family than on his learning to love the camera (which is what the previews look like). It's a downer of a movie being sold as being about the magic of movies.

    Glass Onion -- not as good of a story as Knives Out, but possibly the funnier of the two movies. Good show, though watching it on Netflix felt perfectly fine to me. I don't see a need for a big screen on this one.

    Avatar -- about the same thing as the first one. Cliched story, beautiful scenery, poor character development. Very long -- feels like about three different movies. Only worth it if you really like the visuals in 3-D
