  1. 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 is one of the few Scorsese movies I've actually seen, but i certainly enjoyed it more than Taxi Driver... Although, De Niro's character quickly made it to the top of my "characters I would engage in violent activities with" list. One thing I noticed is how relevant this movie could be to our culture today, what with celebrity worship and all.
  2. Real life sisters Catherine Deneuve and Francoise Dorleac played twins Delphine and Solange in Jacques Demy's 1967 French musical, "Young Girls of Rochefort."
  3. 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.
  4. 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" is quite comforting to me for some reason.
  5. THE LITTLE MERMAID (1989) *Score: 3.5/5* Starring: Jodi Benson, Pat Carroll, Kenneth Mars, Samuel Wright, Buddy Hackett. One of the classic animated Disney movies I remember growing up watching... I absolutely adore the score from this one (Alan Menken really knows what he's doing, huh). I really enjoy the whole underwater aspect of this one; the bright colors and bubbles and sea creatures all assist in giving me a shot of pure serotonin. I mean, there's a reason why this one is high up there for a lot of people.
  6. PULP FICTION (1994) *Score: 4/5* Despite the story being non-linear, I was able to piece together the plot for the most part, and enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. This is not my favorite Tarantino by any means (Hateful Eight #1), but I am attempting to finish his directorial filmography. I have 3 remaining: Death Proof, Reservoir Dogs, and Django Unchained. I think I am most excited for Death Proof...
  7. TAXI DRIVER (1976) *Score: 2.5/5* I don't really know how to explain myself with this one, other than I found myself indifferent to the plot and the characters. Sorry, Scorsese. THE BIG HEAT (1953) *Score: 3.5/5* Noir starring Glenn Ford and Gloria Grahame. I enjoyed this one. There were certain elements that made it seem sort of ahead of its time in a way (I won't go into details so as not to spoil the plot for those who haven't seen it). This one was solid.
  8. This is the first film in which I have strongly disliked a Bogie character. I don't absolutely love either Dix or Laurel, but I feel like I dislike Dix more... His behavior became extremely irrational and explosive, and I honestly had no idea whether the outcome would be positive or negative... Pretty solid film, though. I can put my dislike for Dix aside to admit that lol.
  9. oh ok lol. and yes, it can be a bit much to scroll through. I use a site called Letterboxd (movie logging site) because they have a function where you can see movies available on specific streaming sites. That's the only way I've found so far...
  10. I started subscribing to the Criterion Channel about 5 months ago, and I can honestly say that it is well worth it (in my opinion). There is a very good mix of things every month; American and foreign, modern and classic; I would suggest checking it out
  11. Hi Bsmooth! Nice to meet you. Some of the favorite people you listed are also some of my own personal favorites... I have to say Jimmy Stewart is high up there for me as well. I look forward to reading whatever you choose to post on here
  12. Two slightly heavier options: West Side Story and Fiddler on the Roof. I absolutely love these musicals; two of my favorite movies of all time... I would never get tired of hearing the music (I've been listening to "Tevye's Dream" almost every day this week. For a more fun, lighthearted option: Beetlejuice. This one never fails to put me in a good mood.
  13. ESCAPE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN (1975) *Score: 3/5* Starring: Ray Milland, Ike Eisenmann, Kim Richards, Eddie Albert, Reta Shaw, Donald Pleasence. Two children with otherworldly powers find themselves in a foster home after their adoptive parents passed away. They start to remember more details from their past, but before they can do anything about them, a strange man appears at the foster home, claiming to be their estranged Uncle Lucas. He brings them to a mansion by the ocean, and they meet his employer, an eccentric man whose motives for "rescuing" the children may prove to be more for his own benefit than theirs.
  14. THE BLACK CAULDRON (1985) *Score: 3/5 (very close to a 3.5)* I can understand why this one is regarded as a sort of "cult classic" among people in my generation. I really enjoyed the hand-drawn animation and the color scheme that was used. Some of the characters were rather annoying at times (see gif above), but overall, they were pretty endearing. The movie's title relates to a magical cauldron that is sought after by the Horned King (he's evil, by the way). He wants to use it for his own dastardly deeds, but young Taran, his mentor Flewddur Flam, his oracle pig, Hen Wen, and newfound friends Princess Eilonwy and Gurgi (that rodent looking thing up above) make it their primary goal to stop him before it's too late.
