Sorcerer (to patriotically criticize it as obviously inferior to the original  ::))

Bah Humbug, but we shall perhaps see.

Junior, 1SO, and Sandy love the choices. 1SO it will be interesting to see what someone else thinks about Boxing Day.

@DH, why not Jodorowsky? Also "I don't know the others." Do you mean you are not interested in them or know little about them?

I like your bolded choices, but an itch in my head suggests Twilight Samurai over A Shot in the Dark for you. I cannot name the source of the itch.

Is this itch aware that I don't like Kurosawa?

Twilight Samurai is not Kurasawa, but we are talking about picking between 2 films on my top 100 so which ever you pick it will be interesting to read your views on the film.

Dave, I think that I’ll order Korean (either Oldboy or else Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… And Spring; maybe both) before the date with Sandy.
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.

Everything I know about Jodorowsky indicates I would loathe his movies.

I litterally know nothing about the other movies. Besides what I Googled I mean.

People can hate Kurosawa? How long has this been going on?

Don't forget the kimchi and soju.

9.  (9) Ring of Bright Water (Jack Couffer  1969)
24.  (25) Once Were Warriors  (Lee Tamahori  1994)
54.  (54) Dead Man Walking  (Tim Robbins  1995)
75.  (NR) Sorcerer (William Friedkin  1977)
82.  (83) Boxing Day  (Kriv Stenders  2007)
84.  (85) The Castle  (Rob Stitch  1997)

Definitely watching Sorcerer, and I'll probably watch Dead Man Walking which I think I've seen but don't remember. We'll see after that.

And I have been meaning to watch Apocalypse Now for a really long time.

Yesterday there was a projection of the movie but I had other plans, alas.

Disappointing.  I've always been meaning to see it on the big screen, but never have.

I've started both A Shot in the Dark and Goodbye, Mr. Chips and I can't say either made much impression on me. I've got a few more things to try in order to get a qualifying review in.
