Yes I think some people either haven't heard of it, or don't watch it because it's an old movie. But I feel that it has such a great story and themes that many people now would still enjoy it. Plus Bogart's character arc is fantastic, had me interested the whole movie. I really feel he deserved to win an oscar for this movie, I can't believe he wasn't even nominated.

Oh, no, I wasn't offended at all dude! I realised that my comment was a little simplistic, especially in comparison to KingofPain's comment. So I gave a better and elaborated explanation on why I think The Muppets is better than Return of the Jedi, and admittedly it sounded a little aggresive. I don't think Return of the Jedi is that great to be honest, even though it's considered by many to be a classic. I'm fine with that, I won't be like 'you are (all) stupid!'. I'm not going to offend anyone just because they have a different opinion / taste than mine. So if you say 'kick-ass sucks ass!' and you have your reasons why, I'll be like 'okay dude, but I love the movie'.

And nope: I allow every movie I've seen on my list. Even movies that I think are horrible. So District 9 is not one of my least ' positives', but one of my most ' negatives', if you know what I mean. And also nope: I have not seen a lot of movies yet :p .

It depends on your preference actually. The first Alien is more or less like a haunted house kind of film so if you don't dig the combination of horror and sci-fi then you'll probably hate it. (I'm not sure if that is the reason for you).

Aliens on the other hands is more of a sci-fi/action kind of film. It's actually quite entertaining. I wasn't a huge fan of the original Alien when I first saw it but I immediately fell in love with Aliens and it helped me gain a larger respect for the original. I highly recommend that you do see it. It's got action, plenty of good science fiction elements, great acting, and Bill Paxton. What more could you ask for?

Yeah, I highly recommend checking out The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. When I bought it on Blu-ray last year, I had never seen it before and didn't really know much about it. I purchased it simply because it was cheap and I wanted to add a few older movies to my collection. Well, I watched it and was shocked at how much I loved it. Older movies like that usually bore me, but this one kept me captivated from beginning to end. A very cool movie.

In the past month or so, I've watched both Citizen Kane and The Third Man for the first time, so I'm interested in seeing more of Orson Welles' work.

Hey, thanks for accepting my friend request. :) Here are some movies that I enjoy that probably don't get as much attention as they deserve:

Freaks (1932) - It's been in my top 20 for a long time. Most of the cast was comprised of real circus freaks, so it was quite controversial in its day.

Ed Wood (1994) - In my opinion, Tim Burton's best film. A good movie about a bad director.

Top Hat (1935) - A really good Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers musical comedy.

Eight Men Out (1988) - It's a movie about the 1919 Black Sox scandal. A great film to watch for any sports (particularly baseball) fan.

Cinderella Man (2005) - A criminally overlooked boxing film. It should have been an Oscar contender, in my opinion.

3:10 to Yuma (2007) - Christian Bale and Russell Crowe are both on fire in this. A really good western.

Open Range (2003) - Another good western.

In Bruges (2008) - A really funny black comedy. Colin Farrell is great in it.

What was your opinion on 8 1/2 and The Conversation?

1 person liked this  √ 

Caesar

Caesar on 8/13/2012 Reply  · 

I hate to say it, but I didn't like either. I plan to rewatch both soon to see if I enjoy them more the second time around (which often happens), but my first impression of both were that they were way too plodding and uneventful.

I've been making a concerted effort lately to watch more movies that are in Flickchart's top 100, most of which are older "classic" films. These movies usually don't suit my tastes, but some of them I did like very much.

Recent additions that I liked:

Strangers on a Train - Very cool movie; probably my third favorite Hitchcock film right now, behind Psycho and Rebecca.

Cool Hand Luke - This is a movie that I'm sure I'll like more and more as time goes on.

Sunset Blvd. - I liked The Apartment and REALLY liked Double Indemnity, so I was pretty sure I'd enjoy this Billy Wilder film as well. Thankfully, I did.

The Night of the Hunter - This movie was just weird...and I liked that; very intriguing film.

A Fistful of Dollars - It didn't knock my socks off like I thought it would, but it did keep me entertained throughout.

Recent additions that disappointed:

Full Metal Jacket - Good first half, second half was crap.

Touch of Evil - I watched the 95-min. 1958 theatrical version. I assume the other two versions are better.

The Bicycle Thief - It didn't do much for me the first time around, but I do think my opinion of this film could improve after another viewing (Citizen Kane is an example of a movie that worked for me much better when I watched it a second time).

The Conversation - Simply put, not enough happens in this movie to hold my attention.

8 1/2 - I couldn't find a reason to care about Guido Anselmi and his problem(s), so this movie turned out to be a real chore to watch (me not speaking a lick of Italian didn't help either).

The next Flickchart top 100 film on my to-watch list: It's a Wonderful Life.

I had the same reactions to you on The Conversation and 8 1/2. However, I feel a second watch may help with The Conversation. But 8 1/2 Is just too much of a slog for me to even want to attempt it again.

Regarding the other movies you have been watching, I had the same reactions to all of the movies, except for Touch of Evil. I really enjoy that movie, it's a shame you didn't. Full Metal Jacket does have a weaker second half imo, but I still enjoyed it greatly. Your comment about Cool Hand Luke is correct. For me, it does get better every time I see it. I just recently finished watching the top 100 myself. There is some great movies in there, and some I don't care much for, like La Dolce Vita. Hope you enjoyed It's a Wonderful Life.

Man, I thought It's a Wonderful Life was just fantastic. I've got it currently ranked #30 on my Flickchart. Great, great movie.

The Philadelphia Story is another classic film I watched recently that I forgot to mention earlier. I thought that one was pretty good. The romantic comedy may be the only film genre in which I prefer older movies to newer ones.

I haven't given up on Touch of Evil yet. I'm going to give it a second viewing some time soon. I never fully make up my mind on a film until I see it at least twice.

Oh boy, I am NOT looking forward to the 3-hour La Dolce Vita. I want to watch the whole top 100 though, so I'm going to force myself to watch it sometime.

Are there any top 100 films I haven't seen yet that you would recommend?

I will try my best. Maybe you would like to do a Jack Nicholson double bill? Very different movies, with very different Nicholson performances. Maybe start with Chinatown with calm Nicholson, then follow with unhinged Nicholson. I will recommend not to watch A Clockwork Orange in a bad mood because it probably won't help matters lol. Their is some pretty confronting scenes in that movie.I don't know about La Dolce Vita. Maybe you might want to get it out of the way, or chip away at it. Hopefully you'll actually like it! Personally, I would find it hard to leave it lucky last. Shadow of a Doubt may be the best movie to watch if you don't like them, or another film. It's quite a quick watch, and you like other Hitchcock films. Network has great dialogue and is still relevant even now. The Seventh Seal.... That's tough to judge when to watch, or if you would actually like it. The Big Sleep is easy, if you like The Maltese Falcon, you will like The Big Sleep. Judge accordingly. I enjoyed Paths of Glory, it's a great anti-war film that will probably anger you. You know I like crime films, so On the Waterfront is definitely one I recommend. I'm not the biggest John Wayne fan, but if you have to see one of his films, you can do a lot worse than The Searchers (Red River's not bad too, except for the copout ending) That's about all I have to say, hopefully I've said something helpful lol

Caesar on 9/3/2012 Reply  · 

My feelings toward the film are lukewarm, I'd say. The movie doesn't fail to entertain but, like a lot of Stanley Kubrick's work, the sluggish pacing bugged me a bit.

After now seeing six of his films, I've come to the conclusion that Kubrick was a great director, but not a great storyteller. His style is too meandering and self-indulgent. A guy like Steven Spielberg may not knock anyone's socks off with his directorial flair, but that guy knows how to tell a story. Alfred Hitchcock, James Cameron and Christopher Nolan are also filmmakers I'd categorize as "great storytellers."

Ha! At least you've got it out of the way. Do you know that the water fountain scene is what the movie is famous for? I was so bored! I had to chuckle to myself reading your comment. I just was picturing you sitting there, slowly slumping further and further in your seat asking, why am I doing this to myself!

Well, the fountain scene is probably the only one that isn't boring, so I guess it's appropriate that it's the most famous scene. :)

Yeah, I did a lot of slumping in my seat. There was also a lot of watch-checking, pouting and questions asked, like "Why is this three hours? It's just a guy going to parties and talking to people! Nothing ever happens! Why? Why? Why?"

I just looked at where you placed La Dolce Vita, ha! You must REALLY hate Birth of a Nation. I interested, what did you like better from 8 1/2 than La Dolce Vita? Was it because it didn't take as much of your soul? :)

It's close, but I think The Birth of a Nation is even more tedious than La Dolce Vita. Silent-era films usually bore me, so a three-hour one is bound to be pure torture. D.W. Griffith's other three-hour snoozer, Intolerance: Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages, is also near the very bottom of my list. They're just wretched.

Yeah, La Dolce Vita is ranked lower simply because it's longer. :)

I want to know Caesar, what's driving you to see all these top movies? I find it an amazing effort to watch them so constantly when you hate quite a few of them. Does it make it all worthwhile if you see something that you would never of seen if you weren't working your way down the list?

In truth, some of these "top" movies are ones that I've already seen (like All the President's Men, for example). I'm a bit weird when it comes to ranking movies...basically, if I'm not quite sure where to rank something, I'll simply click "Haven't Seen It" and think about that movie another time. I'm sure I've seen over 1000 movies, yet I currently only have 547 movies ranked on Flickchart. Like I said, I'm a bit weird. :)

As far as the recently-ranked ones I haven't seen, I just feel compelled to watch them because they are so short and so easy to find online. Breathless, for example, was only about 85 minutes. I figure, if it's that short, why not check it out?

While it's true that many of the "top" movies on Flickchart are ones that I'm bound not to like, I'm still very curious to see them.

It's not bad, but there's nothing about it that's terribly impressive either. What stands out about the film the most is how light it is on dialogue; there are very long stretches in the film where nothing at all is said. I actually found that refreshing.

Basically, I would simply describe the film as mildly interesting and just entertaining enough to avoid the "BORING" label. :)

Ahh, but I didn't know that. I guess in the end you're right, but I still don't think the plothole / continiuity error is THAT bad. I guess you can 'fix' the error by 'filling in the gaps'. I still think the 'playing along' theory works, EVEN when the producers clearly didn't intend such a thing. James Bond disguises himself all the time, sometimes succesfully and sometimes not so succesfully. If the bad guy knew it was Bond from the start all along, it's a fresh, surprising twist in the franchise up to that point. It wasn't intended that way, no, but it still kind of works. And it does fit the Bond character, since he always thinks he can get away or infiltrate with just a labcoat or something. MOST movies, anyway. It's not nearly as bad as Han shooting second, because it does fit the character if we consider the other movies part of the same franchise.

And please don't think I was angry, insulted or trying to convince you to like it. I discuss about (little) things in movies all the time. With Cleckley on The Dark Knight vs The Avengers, and with Boonmee on Independence Day vs District 9. If they like a movie I dislike or the other way around, so be it. It is and was never my intention to insult someone for just (dis)liking a movie. But if they make points I don't agree with or points I have something to say about, then I'll respond. Freedom of speech ;). If you want to stop the discussion, that's fine by me. Just as I stopped on the Dark Knight vs The Avengers discussion, I got tired, lol.

Diamonds Are Forever is probably my next one. A while back, I decided I wanted to see all of the James Bond series, from Dr. No to Die Another Day (I'd already seen the Daniel Craig films). I gave up after Thunderball, then I gave up again after On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Now I figure I'll watch all of them, but I'll just take my sweet time doing it. Most of these Bond films range from mediocre to just plain bad, so they're harder to watch than I thought. :)

I keep thinking I'm finished when I'm not!!!!! I completely agree with you with your comment in the matchup Some Like it Hot vs. The Hangover. I bet back then I would of found it hilarious, but now, it left me stone faced. Even though I found some parts funny from the first two, I would throw The Philadelphia Story, Bringing Up Baby, His Girl Friday and Adam's Rib (one I don't think you will enjoy if you haven't seen it) in the same category as Some Like it Hot.

I definitely agree on all of those movies (though I haven't seen Adam's Rib). I do still enjoy these movies, at least moderately so, because their stories are usually pretty strong - I just don't find them very funny. Of course, in 50 years, The Hangover probably won't seem very funny either. Comedy just isn't timeless.

That's very true. I say about half of Roger Moore's movies are (really) bad. One of which, The Man with the Golden Gun, is so incredibly bad that I actually really enjoy it. For me, it's so bad is good. However, some people really, really hate it. I'm really interested in what you will think of it.

I kinda stumbled upon it online. I had never seen a feature-length film that old (1913!) and the quality was quite good, so I gave it a look. The film is quite bold for its time considering the issues it touches upon (rape, murder, suicide), but its entertainment value is almost nil.

So many pre-1930s films have been lost that I really appreciate the ones that are still in existence, even though I find them pretty dreadful to watch.

Ah yes, The Spy Who Loved Me is great; it's the best of Roger Moore, in my opinion. In many ways, it is his 'Goldfinger'. It is one of the most iconic entries in the franchise: the henchman is the most memorable in the franchise, the opening theme is great (and set the standard for future Bond movies) and some of the action sequences are amazing. A high increase in quality after the cheap-looking TMwtGG.

Is Life of Pi worth watching in the cinema for the 3d? It doesn't come out in Australia until January, and I live four hours from the cinema. So I will have a choice between Life of Pi, The Hobbit, Wreck-It Ralph, Les Miserables, Sightseers, Jack Reacher,Gangster Squad and Paranorman. Not sure if I would like to see some of them, but they are my options. At most I will see four. Got to make it worth it when i live so far away!

To be honest, I find 3D very distracting, so I saw Life of Pi in 2D. Even so, it was probably the most visually impressive movie I've seen in a theater since Avatar. If you're into 3D cinema, you'll probably want to see this movie in a theater. However, if you're indifferent towards 3D, you can probably just wait for it to come out on DVD. It's definitely a good film, but some of those movies you listed are probably more "must-see" (like The Hobbit and Les Miserables). So, again, I guess it all depends on how much you like 3D.

I'm a fan of good 3d, which their isn't much of. Anything that's post converted is a waste of time, like The Green Hornet, which I could watch large parts of without the glasses. The other badthing about 3d is the glasses. Not only does it feel annoying wearing them, they're disgusting! It was found that, even on the glasses in closed plastic, there is dangerous levels of germs that are linked to skin infections, conjunctivitis and pneumonia ! :(

Hey dude, wassup? I see you've watched a good chunk of Hitchcock's filmography. I haven't seen any of his films and plan to add one to my collection. So which one should it be? From what I've observed Rear Window, Psycho and Vertigo are his most accomplished works. I was hoping you could recommend me his most THRILLING film. Thanks.

Sure, I'd be happy to. Here are Alfred Hitchcock's most thrilling films (that I've seen):

1. North by Northwest
2. Psycho
3. Strangers on a Train
4. Rear Window
5. The Lady Vanishes

I'd recommend either North by Northwest or Psycho. North by Northwest has the most thrills but, bear in mind, it's about a half hour longer than Psycho; so if you like your thrillers a bit leaner, Psycho may be the way to go. You can't go wrong with either, really.

Hope this helps. :)

I simply like the movie, but I agree that the movie can be quite boring at times. The dream sequences seem to take FOREVER and are way too long. But I do like the cinematography, I like the lead, I like the over-the-top 1984-esque things in it and I like the ending a lot. I like it better than 12 Monkeys and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, but I don't like it as much as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, a film so weird and confusing yet so memorable and awesome at the same time that it is a big guilty pleasure and actually one of my favorite movies. I doubt you will like that one though.

I have a question Caesar. Do you think people should rewatch childhood favourites to see how they rank now, or should people rank them based on how it affected them when they were younger? For example, if you loved Homeward Bound when you were younger, when you were the target audience, would it be fair to rank it now? I have a few thought on it, but what do you think?

Oh, I definitely think it's about the here and now. Some of the movies that I enjoyed as a kid look downright silly to me today, and I am compelled to rank them accordingly. On the flip side, some childhood favorites have grow in esteem in my eyes, some for nostalgic reasons and some because they're just that damn good.

So yeah, I think movies should be judged based on how one feels about them presently, not in the past.

I watched Life of Pi and I thought it was fantastic. The religion didn't bother me because it was Pi discovering what he believes. I was worried it would become preachy to the audience, but I felt it didn't.

For me, it wasn't just a standard survival movie about a boy and tiger. I believe the truth is the darker story, despite me wishing it wasn't. I was enjoying the boy and the tiger so much, that I didn't want to face the facts. That's my take on it, I'm sure their is others.

The 3d was amazing, some of the best I've ever seen. I don't know what it looked like in 2d, but the boat going down was jaw dropping. Also, anything at night that was reflecting on the water was amazing to see.

Surrealism in cinema usually gets a negative reaction out of me. To me, it's too much of a "cheat". Somebody can just throw together a bunch of nonsensical, meaningless garbage and people will call it brilliant, simply because it can be categorized as "surrealist".

Abstract expressionism is another "cheat" to me. Seriously, if Jackson Pollock is a genius, then so is every four-year-old who ever got their hands on some Crayola paints, because it all looks the same.

Yeah, give me a movie plot with a standard three-act structure every time. It'll always be the best way to tell a story.

I really liked the first half of the film but, in its second half, it really struggles to get to the point. That lowered my opinion of it a lot. Still, it's a decent film - very Hitchcockian. I can't help thinking, however, that Alfred Hitchcock would've done a better job with this story. He was, after all, the master of this kind of film.

I just read your Ghostbusters vs The Blues Brothers comment. I hate The Blues Brothers! I thought I was alone on this. I didn't find anything funny. I guess it comes down to your sense of humour.

Yeah, I don't get the love for this movie. The basic plot for the film is that the two brothers want to save their old orphanage, they want to get their band back together in order to raise the money, and they hold a concert and get the money. That's about 90 minutes worth of plot. Why the hell was this movie more than 40 minutes longer than that? There was just too much garbage in the film that didn't need to be in there.

Anyway, I'm probably going to watch Heat tomorrow. Now that looks like a movie I can enjoy. I can't believe I've never seen a Michael Mann movie before; that's kind of weird.

I personally love Heat. De Niro and Pacino are two of my favourite actors when they were younger. Then they were finally onscreen together, just before careers declined. Plus it has Val Kilmer with a ponytail, an added bonus. :)

I watched Throne of Blood. I actually liked it. It's not my favourite Kurosawa film, but it's up there. I did find some of it dragged, but I enjoyed the arrow scene and the witch. Which was well done, I thought, for such an old movie. Rashomon had a similar freaky part in it. I see you still have to see Ran. I enjoyed it, but I get the feeling that you may get bored, don't know why.

Kind Hearts and Coronets is another movie I recently watched that has me debating whether you'd like it. 50/50.

Sorry, hit the button. So, it's goofy at times, yet sad and distressing also. I just love Tom Selleck as a sniper lost in the outback. Alan Rickman is also great as the villain who hires Quigley for a job, until Quigley finds out the disturbing details of why he was hired. The only thing annoys me about the film is Laura San Giacomo as crazy Corra, such an annoying character, she does get better though.Yet the rest of the film makes up for it imo.

I must admit, nostalgia plays a part in me liking it, I must of seen it 15 times when I was younger. It's not as good as Open Range, but if you like westerns, I reckon it's worth a look someday. Plus, it features the actor who played my uncle in a play.

Right up there with dislocating my thumb (a lot worse putting it back in) and the Brisbane flight to Sydney with same ear infection. Nail in my brain, that's what that felt like. One of my first flights, so I didn't know better. It was so bad that I had a whole packet of mentos in my mouth trying to equalize, from my mad chewing i was accidentally biting my cheeks without knowing it. I had blood in my mouth. I was a trooper though, I didn't make a sound, I don't think anyone knew, except for the guy next to me, who was probably worried for himself with me sitting there with clenched fists going white. :)

Django Unchained completely worked for me, I loved every second! Except for Tarantino trying to do an Aussie accent, that shit was off! This Aussie didn't approve. He sounded South African at first, then he just sounded like a mixture of many accents. Loved that Wolf Creek's John Jarret was in it. I cant't believe Will Smith was Django at first, he seems too tame to do a film like that.

I enjoyed Real Genius. It's one of those movies you can just sit back and watch without having to put your brain in overload. 7/10

I also saw two Universal Solder movies. I watch Universal Soldier: The Return really only to see what the films used to be because I had heard the last two weren't too bad. Then I watched Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning. Man, I wasn't ready for the jump in tone! The Return is so cheesy, I hated it. This one was super violent and extremely dark. Made for me basically :) In fact, I wouldn't recommend it because it borders on being a horror movie, especially the start. I'll actively go looking for Universal Soldier: Regeneration now. It's the same director that did Day of Reckoning.

Finally finished Fanny and Alexander! It actually got better for me as it went on, but it took a loooooong time to get to something I enjoyed, 82 minutes to be precise. As soon as the bishop enters the movie it pulled the film out of being one of the most boring films I've ever seen. Don't get me wrong, it's still very slow. I think it would test your patience. :)

Yeah, the pacing is fricking atrocious! I mean WTF! The only two good things about the movie are the musical score and the visuals but that cannot redeem a movie as horribly paced as this. When I was watching this, I wasn't expecting an action movie but I was expecting a great movie that is paced well.

When a film starts with 3 minutes of black screen and then 15 minutes of apes evolving, a movie bores me too! I mean, then we see a ship orbitting around space for minutes...Its a pity because I love some of Kubrick's movies, mainly The Shining and A Clockwork Orange, both movies I just love but he really got far too carried away with the visuals...I honestly don't get how people think that this movie is great and yet, bash on movies that are a bit drawn out...like say the Hobbit...I mean seriously!?!?

I love a strong villain in a movie too! The Nolan Batman movies do that fantastically, especially how Bane is able to overpower Batman physically. I loved the idea how Ra's Al Ghul challenged Batman emotionally, The Joker strategically and how Bane just challenges him by physically overwhelming him!

Is Benedict Cumberbatch announced to play John Harrison or is it still anonymous. I looked at IMDb a few days ago, and it says John Harrison/Khan.
I personally don't want him to be Khan but an all new villain with his own intent. Khan was fantastic though

Well, I used to have the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy at 1, 2 and 3...Now, that was a fanboy...I was extremely disappointed during my first watching, but I decided to re-watch it when I had a Batman marathon (if you call it!) at the end of the year and loved it a whole lot more but there were many issues I had with it. That being said, it was truly a great and entertaining 2 hrs 45 minutes for the most part!

Funnily enough, believe it or not, I just finished re-watching the Dark Knight a few hours ago and it shifted on my chart from 40 to 14! That's what a great movie does (though I cannot help but feel its still overrated) Funnily enough, I watched Thor yesterday for the first time and currently, I'm watching all the Avengers set up movies so that I am fully aware of everything happening in the Avengers when I re-watch it. I wasn't pleased the first time around and I know, it'll be a lot like my experiences with the Dark Knight Rises

I don't know, you seem let down by Star Trek right? It's perfectly understandable. I loved how the newest Trek trailer cut down on Benedict footage! I thought that maybe they were showing too much but loved how the focus of this trailer was on the intensity and the real darkness! I'm pumped and I can't wait to see Star Trek (2009) in preparation!

Mr. Caesar when I said fuck you I wasn't referring to your love of Batman and Robin. I think its an underated and very funny film. I was actually trying to tell you how much of a fucking idiot you are. I can't believe the stupid things you type in discussions. Bye the way its shows how immature you are to retort with a homophobic handjob joke.

Hi Josh,

First off, I'm not sure the guy who types comments like "FUCK YOU Caesar" is the correct person to be scolding others for being immature. Secondly, my joke was merely my playful way of telling you you're taking things way too seriously...and, apparently, you still are. Thirdly, Sean Young is a woman, so I'm not sure how my joke could be taken as "homophobic."

Sure, I type a lot of silly comments in the discussions. A lot of us do. The site is meant to be fun, so we treat it as such. If you have a problem with that, then perhaps Flickchart isn't the place for you.

I didn't know who Sean Young was my mistake. Should have googled her before typing that comment. With the name Sean I assumed it was a man. I admit that my "FUCK YOU Caesar" comment was immature. I typed it because I was messing around and didn't think you would reply. And when you did I wanted to try and start an argument. I was trying to make things more interesting. Flickchart was getting a bit boring so I've been interacting with other users more. I'm sorry.

I'm very sorry you were disappointing. I watch Youtube reviews (Schmoes, JeremyJahns, Stuckmann) and all of them talked about the non linear structure for the flashbacks, honestly I think it may be great :)

I'm surprised at critics saying that Michael Shannon was disappointing. From the trailers, he seems incredible to me. There was also that clip on Krypton where he talks to Jor-El about starting a new race. "These lawmakers with their endless debates, have led Krypton to ruin" I thought he was great there.

Anyways, can't wait to see it. Hopefully, you enjoy it more on a second viewing of the film!

Upstream Colour (I'm Aussie, we write colour like this :D) again! I hope it makes more sense for you. What about Primer? Seems to me that's a movie that could improve on a second watch if you pick up a few more things.

I wasn't enjoying Tokyo Story at first, even at the end I couldn't make up my mind where to put it. Ten minutes after watching the movie, the ending really hit home and made me think of a few things I could do better with family (I won't say what because of spoilers). Any movie that has can do that to me deserves a good score imo. But for you, I see it being quite a drag, no much happens all the through, I think you'd be bored.

I heard The hidden Fortress is compared to Star Wars because of the peasant characters being like R2-D2 and C-3PO. After watching the movie, I can see the comparison. A lot of bickering happens between the characters, despite them being friends like The story also follows them for a great deal of time, despite much more important characters being involved.

Maybe its because you love a lot of the films you've added, but it comes to my attention that you don't necessarily love Rear Window as much as a few other Hitchcock films. It's perfectly cool with me but I was just interested as to why.

In regards to Rear Window, I understand. I don't know what it is, but I watched three Hitchcock films this week and a few older films a while ago (Third Man, Double Indemnity etc) and I immediately loved them! I watched Drive today and I think it'll take a lot of time for me to appreciate that film. Kinda strange how some newer films take longer to appreciate for me.

I've already done quite a lot of reviews and I really love the site. Flickchart, is still of course #1!

In regards to Rear Window, it seems that you don't necessarily enjoy Notorious as much as I did. I just felt that there were quite a few similar things between Notorious and Rebecca, especially the romance story. I view them both as some of Hitchcock's best works.

I see that you've given Shadow of a Doubt a 38% rating. I think it may very well be the next Hitchcock film I watch but I really wanna know your thoughts on it. Speaking of Hitchcock films that are lower on your list, I totally agree with you on Spellbound. Funny how both you and I gave it a 26%!! Remember what happened with Star Trek Into Darkness? That too was a co-incidence! :)

I'm glad that you like The Circus. I agree with you, it deserves just as much recognition as Chaplin's other films. One of the things I liked about it was that he didn't get the girl at the end (which shocked me) instead he went for an ending I felt was more mature. I've seen The General and Seven Chances. Loved them both. :-)

Actually, I like Frenzy just for that reason. I was surprised, and welcomed the different feel to a Hitchcock film.

I liked Paper Moon too! The relationship between the O'Neals was enjoyable. I also agree about The Last Picture Show.

Sorry to hear about your bad run of movies mate. Um, I'm not sure to be honest. Sometimes it's hard to pin down what you'll like. What I do know is I didn't enjoy Bullet to the Head! Very crap looking film, annoying, repetitive score, no real spark to the movie. I'm watching Smashed at the moment, that's pretty good. It stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Paul. Have you watched him in Breaking Bad?

I just read your comment in the Rear Window vs. the Third Man matchup. I agree with you again! :D I don't enjoy it at all. The score really got on my nerves!

It's funny you commented on that particular matchup. Today slionscricket told me that there is tapes of Welles having a go at a bunch of celebrities he doesn't
Iike. He also said that Rear Window was boring and overrated. Have you heard about this before?

Hey there, just commenting to say I agree fully with your 3rd post on the Zero Dark Thirty / Lincoln discussion. The film as a whole (Z.D.T.) just wouldn't have been the same, or i.e. as great, if a certain side was taken.

No problem, and thanks for agreeing with me about Lincoln. I believe it was some celebrity, Samuel L. Jackson I think, who made a comment about Lincoln saying that the film should've ended when Day-Lewis was walking out of the White House and heading to the theater. And I have to agree with that. The theater scene and on was such a great big disappointment. None of the actual play was shown, and none of Lincoln's death was actually shown. So why even have the scene? I heard a different statement from...perhaps it was Spielberg himself...stating that if Lincoln's death was shown the film could have been portrayed as being more about that and Booth than the signing of the bill. And I can agree with that too. But if that segment needs to be cut out, it should be cut out completely. We shouldn't have ended up with such a half-assed final few minutes.

And in terms of the discussions, regardless of what the developers did you have to notice and respect the comment counters on either side of the chosen films. If you have both films in your chart and post a comment, you're posting a vote for the film and it is counted up above. I may just be speaking for myself, and I would like to be able to use those counters as how many individual people are voting for each film. But when I see people making multiple comments, that entire mechanic is all for naught.

Barry Lyndon, while not as bad as The Wings of Desire, took quite some time for me to be interested. Therefore , it's my least favourite Kubrick film that I've seen. It may require a re-watch for me to have a fresher view on the film, it's been quite some time since I have seen it. I don't know when that will be, I have been rarely watching movies again over the last two years.

Never watch Last House on the Left if you didn't like The Virgin Spring! It's pretty much a remake.

If I had to guess, I would think you'd like Princess Mononoke more than Spirited Away. But hey, that may just be because that's how I think. :)

I just watched a movie called The Laughing Policeman with Walter Mathau. Loved it! I'm surprised that it isn't a more well known film.

I recently rewatched "The Avengers" and it holds up 5/5. Really kickass. People complain about continuity errors, plot holes/plot conveniences but I don't care. No movie is absolutely perfect. The Avengers succeeds were it counts, it has a good story, great action, and (my favorite part) really cleverly written characters and humor.

Timberlake isn't terrible, but doesn't bring much to the table in Runner Runner either. I personally didn't like it very much. It's so derivative! I have seen movies like this before, but better. It brings nothing to the plate to catch my attention. I had plan to see White House Down, but it was too damn long (131 mins)! I would of hit peak hour traffic. I was even going to test out Blue Jasmine. Allen works for me about 50% of the time, so I was wondering about it.

So have you seen it again yet? Did you watch it in IMAX 3d? I will just go off topic a bit. I have been listening to some Americans in film podcasts complain about the price of IMAX tickets- $17.50, is it? Well, I had to pay $26 to watch Gravity. Bloody ridiculous if you ask me. A normal ticket is $19. The Aussie dollar is the pretty much the same as yours, so it's very annoying.

I must admit, when I commented on kanedrygurst25's profile, I was ignorant to the deep and subtle genius of his commenting style.
Here are his thoughts on the Monsters Inc. vs. Rope discussion:

"Inc."

And his input to the Toy Story 2 vs. The Truman Show discussion:

"Truman"

My favourite of his works though, has to be his insightful words on The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers vs. Shaun of the Dead:

"Towers"

It is Shakespeare. It is Joyce. It is Hemingway and Dickens squeezed into one another with a fresh, postmodern twist.

. . . Seriously though, this guy is really getting on my nerves. I can attempt to spark a unique discussion among folks like you, JC13 and MoM (like Forrest Gump vs. Captain Philips for example) and have it buried in a matter of minutes by his white noise.

I just read you were underwhelmed by the Interstellar trailer. That's fair enough, the majority is stock footage, but I like that it gave hints to the plot, without showing the whole movie, which is common practice now. Such as the How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer, which apparently spoiled a major plot twist in the first minute. The creators didn't even want it in there.

I watched the Robocop remake last week. The suit wasn't great in my opinion. The whole movie has tame violence, and lame humour. I gave it 2/5 on letterboxd.

If I'm honest, it still seems low for a 3.5/5 film, despite those explanations. It's really not that far from movies like 8 1/2. But hey, it's your list, and you can do what you like. :)

For me, Harakiri is a 5/5 film. I couldn't get enough.

I would give The Warriors a 5/5. I just love the little things. The woman on the radio, the speech, the variety of gangs, and the soundtrack fits perfectly. Oh, whenever I get two bottles, I can't help myself. :D When I was younger, I would start clinking bottles in the kitchen, and my mum would instantly know what I was doing. I would hear "Warriors, come out the playaaaaaay!!" :D

I understand how you feel about Spider-Man. I think because we pick up that it's forced. Just so they can keep the rights, they will continue to pump out these movies. There's so many superhero films, too!

I have enjoyed many films so far this year. I've actually choosing very well so far. It may look like I'm giving very high scores, but as I said, I am choosing carefully. Plus I've got more to choose from, I think i've seen over 110 movies already.

The Wolf Of Wall Street 5/5
Amour 5/5
12 Years a Slave 5/5
Wolf Creek 2 5/5
The Final Member 5/5
Danger: Diabolik 5/5
Possession (1981) 4.5/5
The Collector (1965) 4.5/5
The Seven-Ups 4.5/5
War Witch 4.5/5

We have different taste with certain films, so I wouldn't think you would even enjoy some of the above films. :)

I saw The Final Member! :D Remember we talked about it? I found it bloody hilarious. The American that wants to donate his penis to the museum names his dick. You know, the most normal person in this documentary is actually the man with the penis museum? :D

And the plastic were stuck around his dick. :D He got up to walk out with it still attached. :D

Yeah, I get your opinion on Top Hat. I'm not a musical guy, so it's hard for me to enjoy. Even the songs were tainted for me because of the plot. Especially Cheek to Cheek. That's not how she feels in that scene. I loved it in The Green Mile, but seeing the song with the plot added in, kinda destroyed the song for me.

It's Monday here, I'll be watching Cap 2 on Wednesday. I'm sure I'll like it. :)

That's understandable, the horror genre isn't for everyone and it's populated with a lot of garbage. I'm glad you at least thought it was good though. I've personally got a soft spot for the horror genre so even if it's kinda crappy there's a chance I could still enjoy it somewhat.

The Exorcist is my favorite horror I'd say. It's difficult to explain why that is but for whatever reason I seem to enjoy it more each time I watch it. The Shining is another I'd probably put above Halloween. Psycho is another great one but I'd probably slightly prefer Halloween. You a fan of any of those?

Oh yeah, I really like sci-fi. A few of my recent favorites would be Edge of Tomorrow, Looper, Her(?) and Upstream Color(?). I'm not sure if Her and Upstream color qualify really but I'll let them go, I just filtered sci-fi on my chart and they came up so they'd be the most recent ones I really enjoyed.

Any particular ones you're a fan of or you'd like to talk about?

Yeah, Shane Carruth is a very interesting director and I agree with you in thinking that he's got the potential to be great. I wasn't a big fan of Primer because it felt a little too mechanical to me whereas UC had a bit more emotion to it. Both were very unique experiences though, kinda unlike any other films I've seen.

Oh, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes looks great and, as you said, the early reviews are getting me very excited!

As for my own upcoming must-see movies, I'd put The Guest on there. I was a big fan of You're Next so Wingard's next film is high on my must-see list. The early reactions have been positive too so that's just got me more excited. Guardians of the Galaxy looks like it could be a lot of fun. Interstellar of course since I'm a big Nolan fan. Love PTA as well so Inherent Vice is a must-see. Boyhood seems like it could be something pretty special too, after finishing the Before trilogy Linklater has shot up in my estimation so I'm really looking forward to it.

Any thoughts on those choices?

Nolan is yet to make something I didn't like, Insomnia being the closest I came but I still enjoyed it.

Yeah, The Master was a pretty divisive film. I loved it myself but I'd find it hard to recommend because it's easy to see why someone may not enjoy it.

I'll warn you that You're Next has some very shoddy acting, with the exception of the main actress, so if that's something that could potentially ruin a movie for you then you may not like it very much. If you can overlook it though it's a very enjoyable movie in my opinion.

Nope, I've never seen The English Patient. Not good then? Anything in particular that didn't work or was it just boring?

I'll watch The English Patient at some stage but I suspect my reaction will be similar to yours. It's just a film that's never really looked interesting to me.

Hmm, I'm trying to recommend something that should be on the list and you've not seen by going through your chart. Akira perhaps? It's a science fiction film and I rate it fairly highly. Do you usually like anime? I'll also throw in Grabbers. It's an alien invasion/sci-fi comedy set in Ireland. It's not one that I'd put too high on a sci-fi list but it's pretty fun and I notice you've not seen it. Sorry I don't have more recommendations, I was trying to recommend ones I like that you haven't seen yet, of which there aren't many.

You know, I as well haven't seen a lot of movies these last few weeks/months. Quite busy. But I did get to experience groundhog day (marvelous movie, in my top 20) and Up for the first time (not the best pixar, but certaintly a great film).

I want to see dawn but really haven't seen any monkey films.Planned on seing the original and rise of the apes before wtching dawn (though, I know the original is irrelevant for this series just wanted to get a feel of the franchise)

Days of future past (a bit overrated, no?) and 22 are the only summer movies i've seen so far. Planning of course to see guardians and hopefully dawn of the apes.

22 jump street was good, very good. It was great and loved it. I am not sure whether I like this one better or the first one. The first's plot was better (even though they are basically the same). It had the more emotional ride and fun first time experience with this story. But that's not to say 22 wasn't all that. 21 just handled the story a tad better. That being said, 22 was funnier. Jonah hill and tatum were funnier this time and ice cube was HILARIOUS. So frickin funny. Also the sequel aspect of this story was genius! It deals with the concept of how a sequel always tries to be bigger and more expensive than the first and how it tries to use the exact same things from the first than moviegoers loved. Anyway, check it out it's awesome.

What movies do you plan seeing for the rest of the year in the theater?

It is starting to take other people a long time to load my page from what i've heard from other users as well.If there's an overhaul to the comments section with Flickchart 2, then I think it would be beneficial to everybody. Maybe more options? Such as It being possible to have an option to view comments from each user that has sent ancomment on your page, maybe only showing thelast twenty, and having the rest somewhere else?

Hey Caesar, I was just looking at an earlier comment you made on the Double Indemnity vs. All About Eve matchup. You said that there was no memorable dialogue in Eve for you. I've seen in other matchups as well where you speak very highly of DI's dialogue. It seems to me that I feel the very same way about Eve's dialogue as you do about DI's dialogue. Seriously, I can't think of a movie with better dialogue than Eve. All the performances were brilliant. Bettie Davis in particular put on one of the 10 best performances I've ever seen in my life. I kid you not. When was the last time you watched Eve? Have you seen it lately? If not, I highly recommend you seeing it again.

I love DI and think it's one of Wilder's best . But I'd have to put it behind Witness for the Prosecution. Witness is another film with extraordinary dialogue. Charles Laughton put on the performance of his life. What did you think about Witness?

All About Eve stood out to me the way Double Indemnity stood out to you, I think. Maybe it's my affinity for snappy, witty dialogue. DI has that as well though. So, I definitely understand your affinity there.

As for Wilder's best, I really should recant what I said about his best because I've only seen 3 of his films that I can recall. And that's a very small sample size. Of the three I've seen, I rank them as follows: Witness for the Prosecution, Double Indemnity, and then The Apartment. I'm very familiar with many of his more popular titles even though I haven't seen them. I really am anxious to see Sunset Blvd. I ordered a copy of it and it should be in the mail any day now! I think it's going to be an instant favorite. I'm also interested in seeing Some Like It Hot as well. Got any other strong recommendations for me based on my chart/taste?

I started watching His Girl Friday on Netfilx but was interrupted. I also started African Queen on Netflix. It didn't grab me the first 10 or 15 minutes in, but I'll have to go back and give it another shot. If you say It Happened One Night is your choice for greatest romantic comedy of all time, I need to see it. It's not on Netflix, so I'll have to wait for it to come on TCM or AMC... or just break down and buy it. Thanks for the recommendations.

Have you seen Arsenic and Old Lace? How about Harvey? I recently met a very knowledgeable movie fan, an elderly woman. After discussing my taste in film, she recommended them to me. I checked the descriptions and reviews of them both and seems like they're up my alley. So I purchased both of them yesterday. They should be in the mail by next week. If you've seen either of them, what did you think?

Hey man, sorry to keep bugging you but I'm conducting somewhat of a survey with what I perceive to be the diehard movie fans on this site.. How long has your #1 movie been your absolute favorite? And do you think it will ever change? How loyal and/or biased are you to that movie? Also, the same questions apply for your top 5 as well as your top 10. Are they pretty much edged in stone on your chart or have your top 5 and/or top 10 changed over the past few years?

I'm feeling a little excited about seeing Interstellar too. I mean, if it's half as good as inception then I guess we'll still have something good to look for. I'm not sure on what the plot is about though, I like it that way because I won't be going in expecting something I know, I'd rather be surprised.

Thank you for your reply to my earlier question(s) about your favorite film and your top ten. I asked this question to various people because I've battled with replacing my #1 film for over a year now. I saw Casablanca for the first time in 1999 I think. It left a profound impression on me. It soon became my favorite film as I would routinely revisit it. So, for roughly 15 years, Casablanca has been my favorite film. I've had some really good times with it as well. I first saw it when I was in the military. I just relate to so much of the film. Oddly enough, I relate to both Victor Laszlo AND Rick Blaine!! Victor for the military lifestyle that requires you to be away from the love of your life, and Rick for the duality of choosing between someone you love and doing the right thing. So many themes strike all the right chords with me.

Fast-forward the time to 2013. I saw Vertigo for the first time ever. It blew me away more than any film I had ever seen. Everything about it was brilliant. And the more I watched it, I began to develop an obsession for it. I've never watched a film so many times in such a short span. I watched Vertigo more than ten times in a month. It just drew me in. I wanted to put it as my #1 film, but I didn't want to make a decision based on a knee-jerk reaction. So, I gave it time to see if my affinity for it would lessen. I even forced myself to stop watching it so much. Well, a few weeks ago, I showed it to some friends and family. I discovered that my affection for this film hadn't changed a bit. So now comes the hard part. I almost feel like I'm cheating on Casablanca if I put Vertigo #1. To answer my own question, I'm very loyal to my favorite film of all time. But I think the time has come for me to be true to my chart and put Vertigo at #1.

I've seen Casablanca recently and I still love it as much as I did when I first watched it. But I think I enjoy Vertigo from start to finish a little more than I love Casablanca from start to finish.

I know I'm probably taking this way too serious, but watching movies is one of my favorite pass times. What do you think? Have you ever had this dilemma?

Hey Caesar. As you are a massive Star Wars fan I was wondering what you thought of the trailer of episode VII's teaser trailer. You also have Star Trek in your top 10 and I was also thinking what you thought of J.J. Abrams directing the new film. You must be excited.

I am all for the new Star Wars movie. J.J. Abrams made Star Trek which is a magnificently entertaining film, I can't imagine that he isn't a massive Star Wars fan and with his creative vision, I don't think we will be disappointed at all. Also, that shot of the Millennium Falcon at the end of the trailer was totally awesome!

My flickchart is such a mess! So many movies in the wrong order. I feel like scraping it and starting over. I've only logged in like 665 films, but on letterboxd (which I've actually kept up with) I've logged 1,026.

Have you seen Predestination? I did a quick review of it on Letterboxd. It's crazy!

Hey man, I just watched Harakiri for the first time and was amazed to say the least! I then watched Rashomon and loved it as well. So, I'm now making it my business to watch more from Kobayashi and Kurosawa. I'm familiar with their filmographies. How would you rank their films with relation to each other? Also, in what recommended order should I watch them?

Hey man, thanks for such a fast reply! I can only hope that I enjoy Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, Throne of Blood, Hidden Fortress, and Sanjuro as much as Harakiri! That would really mean that I'm in for a huge shakeup in my top 20! It'd also mean that I'm about to embark upon the most enjoyment I've had with consecutive films since the time that I started getting into Hitchcock. That's going to be huge for me. I've got a few weeks off from school in May. I'll probably start my journey then.

I just love Harakiri. Such a quality film. Very unique, but maybe that's because I'm new to the genre. I was really expecting a bunch of battle scenes. That's okay, but I'm not as turned on by a plethora of battle scenes like many people are. Action is one of my least favorite genres. I do like a good action movie, but it's just that many action movies tend to lack substance. I loved that Harakiri wasn't just an action flick but a deeply and intricately woven story that had lots of layers that unfolded as the film progressed. It kept me at the edge of my seat the whole way.

I'm of the impression that Seven Samurai is action packed, but I'm also of the impression that it's quality and meaningful action with excellent character development. I just get bored with brainless, mindless action. But I'm almost certain that's not the case with Seven Samurai.

Have you not seen Rashomon? If not, I highly recommend it. It's another one that caught me from the opening sequence. Once I saw the first scene, I just had to see the rest. If you've seen it, you should know what I
