I've seen nearly all of Hitchcock's work now and Vertigo is my least favourite. Oh well.

That's a lot of Hitchcock.

I've watched all three Bournes more than a couple times... I find it very hard to decide which one I like the most.


I agree but I would go:

Ultimatum
Identity
Supremacy



Supremacy always seems to get the shaft and I don't care for it. It is easily up there with other two, in fact, it might be my favorite.

Yea, I'm watching them all this year and it's like over 50 films.

Little Ashes

Huh?

I think I'd prefer to just look at melting clocks and leave the personal stories out of sight and out of mind. And why is a film full of Spaniards living in Spain almost entirely in English?

Kurt Cobain About a Son - utterly brilliant
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

Dr. Strangelove (1963, Stanley Kubrick)
B+

Nothing in the movie makes me laugh out loud, but where the movie attracts me is how the characters and situations is so darn entertainning to watch. This despite the fact that the movie depicts the end of the world and the stupidity of humanity in leading ourselves to the end of the world. Kubrick is right in a sense. We're so silly and moronic on the big topics that it is in fact comical.

It was the third or fourth time I watched the movie (I try to keep it fresh in my memory once every couple years) and yet I always forget how much little screen time the character of Dr. Strangelove is awarded. My favourite scenes are those between Sterling Hayden and the British Peter Sellers character. What Hayden says and the reactions, both verbal and physical, from Peter Sellers are great.

All in all, a good time. And brisk too. The movie is barely 90 minutes.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

Whoa.  Wow.  Um...

I own a signed and numbered first printing of this Graphic Novel, though not one of my favorites it sure is a good read.  The movie, however, is an utter disaster.  There is no tension, excitement, suspense or anything remotely good.  What a shame.

Ben Gibbard wrote the music for that! Thats the only soundtrack I own without having seen the movie.

Inglourious Basterds (Quentin Tarantino, 2009) -

Still Great, though not quite perfect. Top 10 of the year for sure.

Rating: ***1/2

A B+ is a mighty low grade to give the best film ever made, edgar.
