Three songs down, well four, but I binned one, wasn't happy....still on track to have it done before the year ends, finances available.....I hadn't heard much on Jersey Boys, good or bad, just love the period and the music, they were one of my favourite groups, I'll see if I can spot the other movie somewhere....

The Cobweb

The Cobweb

(1955)
1 day ago via Flixster

Melodrama aplenty in an exclusive psychiatric unit where the staff are just as crazy as the voluntary patients.The movie would have worked better as a comedy as the heavy handed approach used here falls flat and the ending is entirely unconvincing despite the stellar cast and Minnelli's direction.

Rachel Getting Married

Rachel Getting Married

(2008)
2 days ago via Flixster

Anne Hathaway is amazing in her role as Kym, a girl with severe emotional problems who is allowed weekend leave from a rehab unit in order to attend her sister's wedding. Rosemarie DeWitt is also impressive as Rachel. As the story unfolds and the skeletons come out of the closet, the movie captures the angst very well. So well in fact that it is sometimes uncomfortable to watch.The movie itself is overly long and many things remain unexplained which is frustrating.

Born to Kill

Claire Trevor is sensational as the conniving and manipulative Helen who will stop at nothing to get what she wants in this deliciously gritty noir.

The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner

(2014)

The storyline held my attention for the whole time without requiring much thought. Another reviewer accurately observed that this movie is like a mash up of "The Hunger Games" and "Lord of the Flies".
