Continuing my De Niro quest I watched "Bloody Mama" last night starring Shelly Winters as Ma Barker. This is also from 1970 a features De Niro as one of Ma's sons, drug addicted Loyd. Directed by Roger Corman it's a pretty fun low budget gangster exploitation type flick. This was De Niro's first Hollywood feature film after a few independents and was filmed entirely on location in Arkansas. Also features Bruce Dern and a cameo at the end by Scatman Crothers. Recommended.

I watched it last year. It's part of the 8 film Roger Corman Collection box set. Not too shabby!

Wasn't sure if I should list this on the good movie or bad movie thread but it's more good than bad so here it is. I've been reading the new "De Niro" biography so I've been checking out some of hîs old stuff. Watched "Hi, Mom!" today. Early Brian DePalma effort as well. Very arty, sometimes funny, with some soft porn, film student, and black power elements. Worth seeing. From 1970 - De Niro must have been about 25.

I'd never seen Awakenings with Williams and DeNiro. Pretty good.

Finally got 'round to watching "the Hobbit" on DVD - it was better than I thought it would be (certainly more entertaining for than "Lord Of the Rings" with all those fucking elvish battles).

Bicycle Thief (Ladri Di Biciclette, 1948). Amazing movie that shows the sadness of post-war europe.

When in doubt, watch "The Shining" again.

I've been on a tear recently watching my Jackie Chan DVDs.

1. Operation Condor
2. Legend of the Drunken Master
3. Any suggestions? I was thinking either Project A, Project A II or Who Am I?.

Departures - Okuribito (2009). Fantastic mix of drama and black humour, and beautiful music! <3
