    Watched The Night Caller last night, it was fun if pretty predictable. Good stunts but a lot of logic gaps. It's very giallo-ish at times, complete with a weirdo black gloved killer, but it seems to me that Belmondo's super cop really should have caught the killer much earlier than he did. Still, if he had, he wouldn't have been able to dangle off of a helicopter and crash through the window, so there's that. Anyway, it's entertaining and a fun watch, just not wholly original or as tense as it should have been given the concept (that being that a maniac is calling women he deems morally unfit and then killing them off).

    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    I really enjoyed The Night Caller. There were certainly parts to laugh at (mostly the glass eye ), but his stunt work always makes the movie.

    Watched Le Casse (aka The Burglers) last night.

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068347/

    It's a pretty fun heist film that at times feels like an Italian cop movie, probably because it's a French/Italian co-production and it has a good Morricone score.

    Belmondo is in fine form here, he's got a couple of impressive stunt scenes that are, again, genuinely impressive. Omar Sharif plays the corrupt cop out to snag for himself the emeralds that Belmondo's team has stolen. A good mix of action, drama and humor. I liked this one a lot, just a fun movie.

    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Watched the Olive Films Blu-ray release of Greed In The Sun the other day, with Belmondo and Lino Ventura co-starring. It was okay. Not great, but not a complete waste of time either. Some okay comedy, some decent drama and tension in the second half. It was about 20 minutes longer than it should have been but it was nicely shot.
