    Sweet :vbsmile: !

    Kinda liked the wacky ones:
    To remain on topic:
    The KGB, the Computer and Me (1990) and 23 (1998)
    8/10 and 7/10

    A double feature since it deals with the same historical story, except from the opposite side of the fence (not that one, considering it was taking place in the BRD). First movie was better, mostly because it dealt with the actual (imminently likable) player(s) and it was shot relatively shortly after the events. Neat thing about the second one was the naivete of the hackers; DM 50K for state secrets??! Heck, +10% of development costs for a new missile, aircraft or the like, that's what you sign up for, not the price of a new car :confused: .

    The Motorcycle Diaries
    Movie based on memoirs of Ernesto Guevara's (later better known as Che Guevara) trip of South America.
    Has to be one of the best movies I have ever seen.

    Ok, downloading ... acquiring.

    The Death of Stalin (2017)
    8/10

    Banned in Russia, but can't fathom why. Read a biography of Khrushchev (a grey mouse, if there ever was); Stalin compares immeasurable favourable in this movie. Lenin had the right idea when he tried to purge him in his will, but he should've had the guts to do so while he was still alive.

    Pretty funny movie, but don't expect political satire à la Yes, Prime Minister. That aside, Jason Isaacs seemed to be having a ball playing the only likeable character in the skit.

    Kirikou et la sorcière (1998)
    9/10

    No wonder the story has stood the test of time. If you're not pre-acquainted with the tale then it's predictability to the wind. So imagine Disney on a tight budget having to deliver to a blasé audience but with a non-b&w script and a fantastic soundtrack; magical result.

    Sure needed this glance of fresh visuals after all the IMDb Top 250 movies I've been watching. The classics are fine, but anything listed within one or two years from the specific Top 250's year is a bit of a chore (i.e., mindless, audience-insulting drivel).
