Thanks, haven't seen it yet.

I sadly missed the opportunity to see it on the big screen at the Pasadena ArcLight last Wednesday.

You cant go wrong with some David Cronenberg, The Fly is amazing but also definitely check out Shivers, The Brood, the Dead Zone and Videodrome (which is probably more sci-fi).

The Great Dictator or All The Presidents Men?
"What should have been an enjoyable 90 minutes of nubile, high-school flesh meeting a frenzy of blood-caked blades, becomes instead an exploitational and complex parable of the conflicting demands of agrarianism and artistry. I voted a miss."

The Great Dictator or All The Presidents Men?

Haven't seen 'The Great Dictator', but I can highly recommend 'All The Presidents Men'.
So I would go with that choice. It's worth it, just for Jason Robards 'I'm gonna get mad' scene with Hoffman and Redford towards the end of the film.

The Great Dictator is in my top 50 of all time. I found All the President's Men enjoyable, but forgettable. You should probably see both.

All the Presidents Men is an awful film pretending to speak truth to power, The Great Dictator is a masterpiece that actually does.
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.

The opposite of this is where it's at, except The Great Dictator isn't awful, just painfully unfunny.

The dance with the globe is the single funniest scene in any movie ever.
