Halloween - Let's be honest. This movie isn't scary unless you're under 15. From a pure movie making standpoint, however, awesomely done.
Man on Wire - Half of the time you're thinking 'this guy is fucking insane.' The other half you're thinking 'this guy is a total douche.'
City of Men - City of God was better.
Zack and Miri Make A Porno - Much funnier than I expected. Kevin Smith still can't wrap up third acts for shit though.
Life of Brian - I have fonder memories of "The Holy Grail," but I prefer to actually watch this one.
Role Models - Absolutely underrated. It's hard to tell if the actors themselves even give a shit about what's going on or if they're just immersed into their characters. Good stuff.
What Women Want - Showed up on TBS, so I watched it again. Breathtaking in how sexist it is, and I hate feminism.
Synecdoche, New York - A beautiful, glorious, heartbreaking mess. Stuck with me for days.
I Love You, Man - One of the best guy movies of all time, probably the best Paul Rudd performance he'll ever do. Pretty funny, too.
The Haunting in Connecticut - *snore* Visuals are sorta okay though.
Vicki Christina Barcelona - Fast forwarded through the film, making up dialogue as it sped past. Still pissed off at how long we spent on it.
Belle Du Jour - Probably shocking when it came out, but milquetoast now.
Il Conformista - A visual technique wet dream, but couldn't finish it. ILLL CON FOUR MEEEE STAAA still gets belted out at the house every now and then.
Dr. Strangelove - Oh, Kubrick. Such a funny motherfucker. There's a reason it constantly shows up on best ever lists.
Big Fish - Masochism of a high order. I'll probably actually cry at it after my dad dies. Fun fact: Spalding Gray decided to kill himself by jumping off a bridge after seeing it with his kids.
Mean Girls - I can't tell if Tina Fey is funny because she's funny or just because no one else is working in her arena.
The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Rings - Part one of seeing the extended trilogy straight through.
Two Towers - Part two.
Animal Factory - Needed a break from LOTR. This frighteningly realistic depiction of prison did it.
Return of the King - Part three. The extended material is actually good, fleshes stuff out, doesn't feel like bloat. Oddly enough, after watching the triology I'm not sure how I feel about it anymore.
The Brothers Bloom - Fun, quirky, but I would have taken it in a different direction. Wasted characters for the sake of whimsy annoys me.
Star Wars - Seriously Sam? You don't remember who any of these people are? You don't know Boba Fett?
Empire Strikes Back - Yeah, the first one is kinda weak, but this one is the best of the original trilogy. I think Part 3 is best overall.
Return of the Jedi - Wait, what? You think this is the best one? WTF?!
Les Diaboliques - Mmmmm. Nice. So nice. I will never, ever see the remake, and I feel bad for anyone who did.
Return of the Living Dead - Eh, so solid I don't have any opinion.
Strangers With Candy - I didn't realize there was a movie before the TV show. Painfully funny at times, just painful at others. Hard to watch Stephen Colbert do something other than the Colbert Report anymore as it creates a conflict in my mind.
Elegy - *snore* Huh? It's still on? Why are the characters doing that? Who cares? *snore*
The Hangover - Sure, it's funny, but I doubt it has staying power.
The Seventh Seal - Hey, why not watch Bergman on a Friday night? Black and white and subtitled with a young Max von Sydow has gotta be better than leaving the house.
Imprint - If it wasn't 63 minutes, I never would have finished it. So, so, SO bad.
Public Enemies - Mmmm, Michael Mann. Love it. Sidenote: Christian Bale is dead to me.
Bull Durham - So funny and well written that I love it and I'm not even a baseball fan.
The Insider - Mmmm, Michael Mann. Love it. Sidenote: Nice to see Russell Crowe before he went batshit.
