What was the last movie you watched?

Has anyone seen the original The Stepford Wives?

LOL. It reminds me of some other movie I watched where Hollywood stars were turned into androids so they don't age. I wish I could remember the name of the film, but it was a horror compendium kind of thing. May have been produced by Amicus Productions or Hammer.

Yes, back in the day.
The plot did not seem plausible to me.
A robo-wife would not be affectionate.

Futureworld (1976), perhaps?
It was a sequel to Westworld (1973).

Also, Looker (1981) has a similar theme.

FYI, Westworld & Looker were both written & directed by Michael Crichton.

My friends and I watched "Who framed Roger Rabbit?". I enjoyed giving them facts and references about the movie as it played.
I read that apparently Tim Curry was originally meant to be Judge Doom, but apparently his performance was so good when he auditioned that the producers decided to go with Christopher Lloyd as Spielberg felt Curry's performance would be too terrifying for younger viewers:

Based on this fan-made image alone, I'm inclined to agree:

"Phantom Of The Opera" (1962)

The Hammer production. Far better IMO and creepier than the Universal film of 1943.
 
Back in April, I watched Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire in theaters. It was a really good, enjoyable movie and it was the first movie I watched in theaters again since 2019 (Frozen 2 was the last movie I watched in a movie theater before the pandemic happened).
 
Rosemary's Baby - the 1968 film.

I've seen it before but only just realized that it was written by Ira Levin, who also wrote the Stepford Wives, both of which have similar feminist overtones (something of which I have been trying to pay attention to lately).
