    @RockyRoadHux and I watched:

    This is an adaptation of the same called novel by Stepehen King from 1990. It was fun to watch and Kathy Bates definitely deserved her Oscar for this role.

    Then we watched:

    Based on a true story, this movie depicts the foundation and history of 'McDonald's'. It was an interesting watch.

    The Mouse That Roared (1959)



    The minuscule European Duchy of Grand Fenwick is bankrupted when an American company comes up with a cheaper imitation of Fenwick's sole export, its fabled Pinot Grand Fenwick wine. Crafty Prime Minister Count Mountjoy (Peter Sellers) devises a plan: Grand Fenwick will declare war on the United States, then surrender, taking advantage of American largesse toward its defeated enemies to rebuild the defeated nation's economy. Duchess Gloriana (also Sellers) is hesitant but agrees to the plan. Mild-mannered game warden Tully Bascomb (also Sellers) is charged as Field Marshal to lead the Grand Fenwick troops, aided by Sergeant Will Buckley (William Hartnell).

    The contingent of 20 soldiers in medieval chain mail books passage across the Atlantic on a small merchant ship, arriving in New York Harbour during an air-raid drill that leaves the city deserted and undefended. They chance upon a civil defence truck and are mistaken for invading Martians, prompting an investigation by blustering but ineffectual General Snippet (MacDonald Parke). Puncturing the tyres of the general's jeep with their bows and arrows, the Grand Fenwick troops take him and four NYPD officers hostage. Still looking for a place to surrender, Tully and Will stumble across Dr. Alfred Kokintz (David Kossoff), whose invention of the Q Bomb – capable of destroying an entire continent – has prompted the defense drills. He has built a football-sized prototype of the unstable bomb, which Tully takes possession of. With Kokintz and his attractive daughter Helen (Jean Seberg) as additional hostages, Tully declares victory and returns with them to Grand Fenwick.

    The duchess indulges Tully's victory, and the prime minister resigns in disgust at Tully's blunder, leaving him as acting prime minister. When the incident is discovered, the U.S. government is thwarted from retaking the weapon and hostages by force, fearing the dishonor of attacking such a small and defenseless nation. Instead, they send the U.S. Secretary of Defence (Austin Willis) to discuss terms of surrender and get back the bomb. Meanwhile, Grand Fenwick receives competing offers of defensive aid from each of the world's powers, in exchange for the weapon.

    Tully becomes smitten with Helen, who initially despises him for taking them but falls for his simple charm. Then Snippet and Mountjoy conspire to steal the bomb and return it (and Helen) to America, but Tully gives chase and retrieves it. The Secretary of Defense and Tully agree to terms: the knock-off wine will be taken off the market, Grand Fenwick will receive monetary aid from the US, Helen and her father will remain in Grand Fenwick, and so will the bomb: held by "the little countries of the world" as a weapon of last resort if the superpowers refuse to disarm.

    Checking the bomb for damage, Tully, Helen, and Dr. Kokintz find it was "a dud" all along, and leave it in the dungeon, conspiring to keep its impotence secret. However, after they leave, a mouse emerges from it, and it appears to rearm, sitting ready to explode if disturbed.


    ============================================================================

    The Mouse On The Moon (1963)



    Financial disaster looms for Grand Fenwick when the current vintage of its only export, wine, starts exploding in would-be consumers' faces. Prime Minister Mountjoy (Ron Moody) decides to ask the United States for a loan, ostensibly to fund its entry in the race to the Moon, but actually to save the duchy (and install modern plumbing so he can have a hot bath). The devious politician knows that the Americans will not believe him, but will consider the half million dollars he is asking for to be cheap propaganda supporting their hollow call for international co-operation in space. He is delighted when they send him double the amount as an outright gift. The Soviets, not wishing to be one-upped by their Cold War rivals, deliver an obsolete rocket. Mountjoy asks resident scientist Professor Kokintz (David Kosoff) to arrange a small explosion during the "launch" of their lunar rocket to make it look like they have actually spent the money as intended.

    Meanwhile, Mountjoy's son Vincent (Bernard Cribbins) returns after being educated in England. Mountjoy is disappointed to find that Vincent has picked up the British sense of fair play and the ambition to be an astronaut. Professor Kokintz has pleasant news for Vincent: he has discovered that the wine makes excellent rocket fuel. Together, they secretly begin preparing the rocket for flight. Maurice Spender (Terry-Thomas), a bumbling spy sent by the suspicious British, is given a tour of the ship, including the shower heads converted into attitude jets, and reports back to his bosses that it is all a hoax.

    Mountjoy invites the Americans, Soviets, and British to the launching. To everyone's surprise, the rocket leisurely takes off with Kokintz and Vincent aboard. Kokintz calculates it will take three weeks to reach the Moon. Humiliated, the Americans and Soviets decide to risk sending their own manned rockets, timing it so they will land at the same time as (or a little before) Grand Fenwick's ship. However, Vincent accidentally hits a switch, speeding up the vessel, and he and Kokintz become the first to set foot on the Moon. The latecomers are greatly disappointed. When the Americans and Soviets try to race home to salvage some sort of propaganda coup, they almost enter the wrong ships and then, when they attempt lift-off, both descend deep into the lunar dust. The American and Soviet spacemen have to hitch a ride with Kokintz and Vincent.

    They return to Grand Fenwick during a memorial ceremony (they had been out of radio contact for weeks and presumed lost). The diplomats immediately begin squabbling about who reached the Moon first.

    Oh man. Oh man. What a movie. It deserved a theatrical run it's GORGEOUS. And Delroy Lindo gives the best performance of 2020 so far. The messaging. Only flaw is it's a bit too long. But good lord it's 1000% worth watching

    This is a long-lost British road safety advertisement first broadcast in 1967, recently re-discovered by an organisation called Kaleidoscope who make it their business to find old TV footage. The video shows Adam West learning “Kerb Drill” from British children, never been seen outside the UK and hasn’t been seen by anyone for 50 years.

    DA 5 BLOODS
    I was born on June 13, 1969
    A year before my birth, MLK was assassinated on April 4, 1968. I was born at the cusp when the world was about to change.
    I'm 51 years old,
    I saw Star Wars at a drive-in theater when I was 8 years old... now called ANH, That film changed my life forever.
    The art of Star Wars made me want to be an artist... so many artists worked on that film.
    I stood in Forbidden Planet NYC and read the Art of Star Wars cover to cover.
    It was $19.99 I only had $20 bucks in my pocket...
    I took art classes every Saturday at Cooper Union just a few blocks from Forbidden Planet.
    I'm a Correction Officer never made it as an artist, so I say BLM, FTP.
    I'm black first before I put on my uniform...
    and when I take off my uniform and badge, I'm just another target...

    Yeah, especially the opening montage with Ali, the civil rights movement, and the horrific war scenes. I don't like all of Spike Lee films but this one had to be made, and it was made at the right time.
    It was a bit long as you said, but I think Spike wanted to make a statement. I joined the military to get money for college, however, I
    knew what I signed up for. Later, I took the test for the NYPD and Corrections, Corrections called me first, so rather than chase after crooks
    I watch them. The recent event reminds me that it really doesn't matter if you're an officer I'm black no matter what... BLM.

    Broke out my MIB trilogy and popped this in after work. When it came out I had to be dragged to it because I thought it was going to be one of those lazy cash grabs for an old franchise that should have just been left alone but it surprised me. Unlike most of these latter-day sequels/reboots I think it captures the spirit/quality of the first two and actually feels like part of the series. I can't say the same for MIB International though.

    I haven't seem MIB:Int, but I too thought MiB3 was all right, really. I especially appreciated the whole Warhol's Factory thing, which was quite marvelous :D

    If you compare to MIB II, the third part is a masterpiece.

    Yeah that's a weird one. Lots of problems but the comedy between Smith/Jones still works in my opinion. Overall it's a messy film but has enough funny moments that I still enjoy it.

    That's a movie best seen for the first time in the 80s and preferably as a kid. The only way you're going to enjoy it now is if you're going into it actually wanting a bad/cheesy 80s movie and you have lots of drugs/alcohol handy. There aren't enough drugs on Earth for Teen Wolf Too though. Or that TV show.
