  1. @ everyone: I'm afraid to tell you all this, but I just watched Citizen Kane for the very first time last night, and I did not love it... There were certainly moments I enjoyed, but I think I hyped it up too much in my own brain, so when I finally watched it, I was underwhelmed. This film is certainly not without merit, though. I can see how it is widely regarded as one of the best films of all time.
  2. I just concluded my 12th watch of Bogdanovich's "Noises Off" (1992)... I have no words to defend my actions, other than this movie cheers me up and is a good distraction. Plus, what a cast: Michael Caine, Carol Burnett, Julie Hagerty, Christopher Reeve, Marilu Henner, John Ritter, Nicollete Sheridan...
  3. i love anna kendrick! i think she is quite gifted, especially comedically.
  4. I think there are so many different streaming platforms and film opportunities available these days that it can be quite hard to tell people apart. There are so many people "in the business" as some call it, that it can sometimes be overwhelming. That being said, I think there are a few people I can get behind calling true "stars;" something that is quite reassuring is a lot of the young people in my film club are familiar with the classics and even have been known to praise some excellent examples of film released pre-1970.
  5. BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK (1955) *Score: 7/10* Starring: Spencer Tracy, Robert Ryan, Ernest Borgnine, Walter Brennan, Lee Marvin. Tracy stars as a one-armed war veteran who stops off in a small desert town with the intentions of awarding his war buddy's medal to his son, but ultimately finds out there might be something sinister within the town and amongst some of the townspeople. From the minute he steps foot in the town, he is immediately met with a very cold reception; some of the men in the town even go so far as to subtly threaten him and discourage him from trying to do what he c
  6. PHANTOM THREAD (2017) *Score: 3/5* This is one that has been on my list for a long time now, and I finally got around to watching it; unfortunately not one of my favorite movies, but I really appreciate the visuals and the score. I am too far into Paul Thomas Anderson's filmography at this point to turn back now, so I must finish the rest of his work (as far as feature length films go).
  7. Hi, I am alive lol. BEING JOHN MALKOVICH (1999) I recently watched this and rated it 4/5 stars; I had no idea going into it that I would enjoy it so much, yet here we are. I can't exactly describe just what it is that made me like it; I just do.
  8. I didn't really feel like anything I could say about it hasn't been said before. I wasn't really in the mood to discuss it further lol but I can if you want
  9. BICYCLE THIEVES (1948) *Score: 4/5*
  10. DIABOLIQUE (1955) *Score: 4/5* I watched this just last night, and was pleasantly surprised. There was a twist, which I am embarrassed to say I understood way too late. Excited to watch more Clouzot. UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG (1964) *Score: 3.5/5* My second Demy film; I love the way he used color. Catherine Deneuve is quite charming in this, and I am stoked to see more of her filmography. THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL (2014) *Score: 4/5* I was recommended this by one of my film club friends for our "secret cinema" biweekly event (like secret Santa, but with movies). I act
  11. BEFORE SUNRISE (1995) *Score: 3/5* Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy both gave fine performances in this but I wasn't overly impressed; probably not the typical sort of movie that I enjoy watching. I am glad to have finally watched this, though. And, as I am a completionist, I will be watching the other two in the trilogy as well at some point. SICARIO (2015) *Score: 3.5/5* I'm not sure if I paid as much attention as I should have during this one, but I thought it was pretty solid. Emily Blunt was good, as was Josh Brolin. THE KING OF COMEDY (1982) *Score: 3.5/5* This
  12. Real life sisters Catherine Deneuve and Francoise Dorleac played twins Delphine and Solange in Jacques Demy's 1967 French musical, "Young Girls of Rochefort."
  13. This is next up for me (as well as Tale of Hoffmann)... I just recently rewatched Black Narcissus and watched The Red Shoes for the first time, and thoroughly enjoyed both.
  14. THE FOX AND THE HOUND (1981) *Score: 3/5* This is another one of Disney's animated classics I remember watching often as a child; my younger brother absolutely loved this movie, which explains why it's so familiar to me. I was never one of those kids who cried at a lot of movies, and this one never broke me (to the best of my memory; I could be wrong, I don't know if I can actually remember that far back), but I remember being touched by Tod and Copper's friendship-turned-sour. One aspect I quite enjoy is the casting of Pearl Bailey as "Big Mama" the owl. Her song "Best of Friends"
