Great idea, Corndog!  You can be sure everyone will be interested in what you have to say...

yea, no pressure, right?
Especially since we all know you already love my favorite film.  ;)

I don't think Magnolia is my favorite anymore. I think it's There Will Be Blood

Older and wiser. Good call, Junior.

Maybe we should call him Senior now.

I'm excited to see you're intending to see A Brighter Summer Day, but I am aware it is quite difficult to find. That said, there is a recent restoration currently/about to tour, and the Criterion is in the works by all reports, although no release date is currently set.
just by chance i'm downloading this one now. 3.15GB in two .avi files, with English and Chinese subs.

In the future, I will post this at the end of my previous film's review, but here is what is next on the table, that way you can be aware when your's is coming up.

verite - A Short Film About Killing (Krzysztof Kieslowski, 1988)

Cool.  While I actually like the original, shorter Decalogue 5 a little better, it being part of a tv miniseries ruled it ineligible for my list.  And actually A Brighter Summer Day is tied with Killing at the top spot, but number two if all of The Decalogue could have been counted as one entry.

Finally! Mononoke!
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

Is this one of those posts you write and then crack yourself up with? Because that is pretty funny.

Also, C Dub, unofficially let's say that George Washington is my favorite film?

Maybe...I've gotten better about that though.

I will make an exception because it is in your top 3, but I don't want to start a trend or another "Master and Commander" marathon.

Plus, I've always wanted to see it.

I thank you. I do not mean to impose, but you've watch the other DGG films I have seen and, apparently, really enjoyed them, so I am interested to see what you think about George Washington.
