There Can Be Only One

I got a free pass to Cinema at the Square the other week, so I went on a bit of a kick of watching classics that I've never seen (or never seen all the way through) before — The Godfather, Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon.*

This carried over somewhat into my Netflix/Amazon Video viewing, but with more sci-fi and less film noir, because I've never seen the original Total Recall or the first Highlander.

I got through part of Highlander last night — up to Sean Connery and the stag, I think — but then I couldn't take it anymore and had to turn it off. The thirty-second version with bunnies was much more my speed.

* Was The Maltese Falcon supposed to be a comedy? Because the crowd I was with was laughing pretty hard at a lot of it.
