Yeah, Le Quattro Volte is amazing. Great film. That entire scene where they build that oven to make coal or whatever it is they do there kinda reminded me of that sequence in Andrei Rublev where that kid makes the bell.

The Graduate (first viewing)
2.5 out of 4

Cinematography was super interesting and was by far the best attribute of the movie. All of the relationships, though, felt very unnatural and illogical. Hoffman did a great job at being really neurotic and severely unlikable, but I hated watching him onscreen. I dunno, I don't know jack-S about filmmaking and I know this is supposed to be a classic, but I didn't enjoy it at all. Also, how many frickin times can we listen to Scarborough Fair in one damn movie?

I know. I like the movie, but the overuse of Simon and Garfunkel really annoyed me after a while. Plus, the film wasn't that funny either. Just a decent comedy imo.

some cliches, but still a lot better than any of the raimi spiderman movies.


The first two Spider-Man movies are superior, imo.

I am, too, mostly because I expect the Green Goblin will murder Gwen Stacy. That'll shock the ignorant masses out of their summer-popcorn-superhero-movie stupor. If Sony has the balls to do it.


Haven't seen the movie yet but that's one big if. Nolan opened the door to it certainly. In the comics doesn't she die when the Green Goblin drops her off of a bridge and Spiderman tries to save her by catching her with his web only to snap her neck because of the sudden stop he brings her to?

I heard really good things about that one. I'll try to check it out.

I remembering having a really weird argument with Troy Ponce over the science of The Wizard of Oz.

He basically said he couldn't enjoy the film because if water made witches melt there's no way they could survive due to the water vapor in the atmosphere, I told him how ridiculous I thought it was to be overly concerned with the scientific accuracy of a fantasy film, and he then proceeded to provide scientific explanations for everything else in the movie.


Especially given that you know it's a dream.

Jack and Jill for its sheer cynicism and awfulness is much worse than Clint Eastwood failing to realize a vision and appalling makeup jobs.

I've said it before and I will say it again: Sucker Punch is the most unfairly maligned Hollywood film of the 2010s so far. Certainly it's the only decent thing Zack Snyder has ever made.


Haven't seen it because the Watchmen and 300 sucked so bad but certainly it would have trouble being much worse.

I saw Le Quattro Volte on netflix and I somewhat regret seeing it like that since yeah it's one of those kinds of movies. But that's okay, I still had an experience and the next time I see it on hopefully its blu format, it will be extraordinary. Certainly another great film to add to the already stellar year for movies last year. Shows that the Italians still got it.


That was a wonderful film. I loved how it dealt with the cycle of life and death in relation to the earth.

saw Brave tonight. enjoyed it. don't know where it ranks among all Pixar, probably closer to the bottom, but that's not really a bad thing (note: i haven't seen either Cars movies).

No this was the first Ming Liang Tsai movie I've seen. I am going to wait with Goodbye Dragon Inn because I want to see Dragon Inn first (which is the old chinese movie that plays during GBI). Sadly, Dragon Inn only exists atm in a ridiculously cropped form of its OAR.

Other films by him that are supposed to be good (actually it wouldn't surprise me if all of his films are good) are Pickpocket (yup, he's a huge Bresson fan), Rebels of the Neon God and The Wayward Cloud

Anyway, you should check out The Hole. Really a wonderful movie imo.
