Hey Zeb, any reason why Star Wars is your fourth least favorite movie? Blasphemy!

You should totally watch Un Chien Andalou, Zeb. It's on Netflix instant watch and it's only 16 minutes long. It'll blow your mind.

I just watched it. I... don't know what to think. haha. I really liked how he imagined himself slicing the woman's eye, and then the clouds sliced across the moon as he was slicing her eye. I enjoyed it. I just wished I understood something.

Saw The Godfather today, and, well, I didn't get it. Yeah, it was pretty entertaining due to the vibrant, colorful characters and awesome gangland slayings, but overall I wasn't impressed. I'd give it a weak 3 outta 4 stars. There's no plot or tension, just a series of murders and reprisals.

I need to watch it again. I can understand what you mean, though. As far as I remember, there wasn't a particular job that was focused on or anything. I loved seeing the way the group of people in the family interacted together. You get to see into these people's lives, where jobs are easy to perform, but you're living in a constant state of paranoia against the people you're supposed to trust with your lives.
Maybe I should watch it again. I might have to break out the good ol' VHS player tonight..

Saw Jules and Jim a couple of hours ago and I didn't hate it. Well, I usually don't like these artsy romance flicks, but this one was okay (I'd give it 2 outta 4 stars). I liked the fast-paced first third the best, where things were light-hearted and whatnot. Kinda felt the fim lost it when Jim lost his mustache, though. After that it was just a series of affiars and counter-affairs. Not my thing, but not bad.

I am very surprised that you were even up for watching it. I agree, I like the first third more, and laughed at how there really wasn't a score until Catherine pulled out a knife and then it got all dramatic. I actually dig these types of stories, but I can definitely see why you wouldn't. I was more struck by the style of filmmaking than anything else. I'll be watching Comando soon, give me either tomorrow or Tuesday and I'll let you know what I think.

Rewatched Batman Returns a couple of days ago and thought it was great. Tim Burton has directed a wonderful tribute to German Expressionist cinema of the 1920's and '30's. I'd highly recommend watching Nosferatu (1922), Metropolis (1927; 2.5-hour cut), and M (1931) and then rewatching it. It's like a totally new experience. Even if you don't rewatch Batman Returns, you should as least watch the restored version of Metropolis, it's one of very favorites.

I love this idea. I started watching M last night, got about 30 minutes in before i became too tired. I already love it. I'm gunna go watch it now, and then afterwards Metropolis. I will definitely revisit Nosferatu... maybe not when I'm in the house alone late at night again. haha. Also, I've been watching a lot of the Oscar bait from last year and haven't really seen anything amazing. The King's Speech was very heartwarming and well acted, but other than that movie, nothing's stood out. I still have to watch True Grit. Have you seen it?

Sadly, I haven't seen the remake of True Grit yet, but my dad said it was good. While rewatching Batman Returns, I noticed stuff like how Gotham City was very similiar to the cityscapes of Metropolis and the scene with the Penguin's shadow creeping across the sewer wall reminded of the iconic finale of Nosferatu. Maybe you can find some more references.

Allrighhttyy.. I've gotten halfway through your recommendation. I love how both M and Metropolis deal with masses of people, and mob mentality. M was delightful. Peter Lorre has a perfect face for that role, and I love the message of the film (sorta anti-anarchy, pro-law and justice). Metropolis.. oh, did it have it's highs and lows. I think Fritz liked to show every tiny thing that was happening in escape scenes, and so they ran a bit too long for me (same in M also). I thought the actress who played Maria was superb, and I loved the story. It's hard to believe it was made in 1927. I hope I enjoy Nosferatu. I got into the first couple minutes and I was already a little 'blahh..'. I'll keep a positive attitude.

If you like this German Expressionism stuff you could also check out The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. I didn't like it nearly as much as the other three, but it was still a huge influence on Tim Burton.

Hey Zeb, I belong to this action movie website called allouttabubblegum.com and on it you write your own Cine-A-Trek, which is a list of the top ten movies you've seen from every year that you'd give at least a 7 outta 10 stars to. There's also a capsule review for each movie, too. I just completed mine: http://www.allouttabubblegum.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=33 Just click on a decade and scroll down until you see The Hestinator's (me) post. I'll constantly update it as I see new movies. You should put it on your Favorites list or something in case you need to find a recommendation or see what I thought about a particular film.

Watch The Adventures of Prince Achmed on Netflix instant watch now. It's the world's first full-length animated film. Don't read any sypnoses of the film or anything, just watch it. You'll love it. We're talking high art here.

I've been super busy as of late, but I'm going to definitely check all this out soon. I still have to finish Nosferatu and then Batman.. eek. I'll catch up soon, I promise. I've got another friend who's been giving me movies to watch and it's been hard catching up. I will get to it soon. Keep giving me more awesome movies to watch. I haven't checked anything on Instant lately, but I'd recommend anything Woody Allen. He's been blowing my mind lately.

Long time, no see. Check out who's currently #3 on the list of biggest fans of the war genre on the new "personal recommendations" page thingy :)

Oh, yeah, I also suppose I'm the biggest fan of the war adventure genre, too, according to the new "personal recommendations" feature. NUMBER ONE!!!

Anyway, if you need any recommendations I'll throw the Robert Mitchum thriller The Night of the Hunter at you. It's a magical, expressionistic children's fantasy about a serial killing preacher. Great stuff.

Ha! This is the first time I've gotten on here in a few months. I'm never on the computer. I got that 3M job (btw) haha. It's been consuming my life since early July. I haven't been watching many movies, sadly. I'm gunna get back in the habit. I guess I've been going to the movie theaters more often to see comedies, but that's all. I've heard awesome things about The Night of the Hunter. I'll be checking it out. Putting it on my cue now :) I hope all is going well. Where are you doing school at this year?

I'm at Ashford this semester. Things are fine, I guess. Still not sure what I want to do with my life, though. Mainly just counting action actors' kills for AllOuttaBubbleGum.com and worrying at school. Anyway, I hope things are going smoothly for you and you get watch a bunch of kickass movies.

How's Ashford treating you? I don't think anyone really knows what they want to do with their life.. I think we get fed all these ideas of a career reflecting yourself and your interested and yada yada yada.. I've kinda realized that we are pretty resilient people and can probably find comfort and happiness in any situation. Don't stress so much about it. I'm sure you'll find yourself falling into a place you fit nicely in. If only we could just sit around and watch movies all day, right? haha.. I looked in one of my 'Greatest Movies of all Time' book and found The Night of the Hunter. I'm pretty excited to see it.

Ashford's fine so far, I guess, but it's only my second week, so it might be too early to tell fo' sho'. Well, hopefully all this madness about deciding what to do about the future and the uncertainty that comes with it will end soon or something.

About The Night of the Hunter, I should warn you the last third isn't as good the stuff that preceded it, but overall it's still a pretty spectacular experience. The cinematography's some of the best ever and the influence of German Expressionism is apparent.
