Yeah, but how many times does somebody die from decapitation by racecar tire in that film? Twice in mine, same person both times. Beat that.
:D

Final Destination 1-3 are definitely guilty pleasures of mine but I fought the temptation on The Final Destination. Thanks for making me feel better about it.

lol, that's like one of the three scenes of Airplane I've seen and it makes me laugh each time I think about it. I should just rent that film.
Do. There are loads of jokes as funny as that.
Do it, sam!

Get the second one too.  It's not a big step down...
Might be some good family fun. I'll try to pick em up sometime next week.

Fair warning, there is a random boob shot.

Force of Evil Abraham Polonsky, 1948

John Garfield is a lawyer who is helping out some random gangster dude keep his number rackets all protected and shit. His brother, played by an incredible Thomas Gomez, also runs a secret bankie thing where people bet and stuff. Garfield is all trying to get his brother to join the gangster dude so they can all get rich. The moral corruption at the heart of American capitalism is laid bare in less than 80 minutes  :D The whole movie is so tough, unsentimental, almost brutal and cold, but then you got all these beautiful romantic scenes where Garfield and Pearson spar back and forth about why they're attracted to each other (the entire film is written in blank verse so it's a joy to hear, as well as look at) that balance the overall tone. Seriously, the dialogue is wonderful, full of repetition and variation. So, yeah, this film is some great stuff. Anyway, let's name some names.

Cool review Clovis, can't wait to watch Gift Shop along with Best Worst Movie.  Going to be a good year for documentaries.
Iíve lied to men who wear belts. Iíve lied to men who wear suspenders. But Iíd never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

Shaping up to be another wonderful year for animation.          

Going to be a good year for documentaries.

What I learned today: It's going to be a good year.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

This Gun For Hire (Frank Tuttle, 1942)
Without this film we wouldn't have many of the iconic moments from Le Samourai - Jef's room, the railway bridge - so that's good enough for me. Without Alan Ladd's angel-of-death performance as Raven we wouldn't have the studied coolness of Delon. Again, good enough for me. The dialogue is great, "You're trying to make me go soft. Well can save your oil I don't go soft for anybody." Or: "How do you feel when you're doing it?" "I feel fine." The set-pieces and outdoor locations are fantastic. The killings are brutal. What more do you want from noir?
