And I will never see it again.    Ever.
Unless it becomes a Rifftrax, lol...

Haha, oooh I doubt that very much.

High Noon. The western version of 24.

Did you think Grace Kelly and Cooper were good together?  I didn't like that pairing much.

Is it wrong of me to say I don't really like Gary Cooper? I've seen a bunch of his films, and I've always felt he's a slightly awkward screen presence.  And unlike say, James Stewart, when he turned to tough guy roles, he didn't seem to me to have the persona to pull it off.

I last saw Laputa: The Flying Castle.  Another Miyazaki film - Studio Ghibli's first, I believe - and it's very good.  It's a weird fusion of an eco-movie and science fiction.  It's got a great design look too, the cities on the ground look like a mining towns, while the titular castle could be Versaille.

Excellent film, though when I first saw it I was perturbed by the "Only I may do such and such because I'm royalty" theme.

The last movie I recall seeing was Transformers. It was so awful and amateurish I get angry just thinking about the wasted potential.
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

I saw Soylent Green on Fox Movie Channel the other night... or maybe it was Turner Classic Movies... I can't remember, but it didn't have any commercials...

Zoo


This documentary closely examines the sensationalized story of a man from Seattle who died from a ruptured colon after having sex with a horse in a barn. Director Robinson Devor transcends the shocking headlines to explore the circle of people who secretly possess an interest in bestiality. Two friends of the man who died as well as a horse advocate provide narration for much of the film.

The films that I've seen in the past 24 hours:

Superman: Doomsday (Enjoyable. Lots of nice moments for the Supes fans.  Some minor problems with the voice work though.)

Yo-Yo Girl Cop (Yes, Yo-Yo Girl Cop. Just as good as it sounds.)

And right now, I'm watching Death Proof, but I've taken a break to watch Kitchen Nightmares. I have a weakness for reality shows. And frankly seeing real life people argue about why the family restaurant is failing is a bit more engaging than watching QT's characters talking about car movies. (For Pete's sake, Quintin. You could have cut a half hour out of that first 45 minutes.)

Oh god.  It'd be the only way I'd watch that movie again.

Ingmar Bergman's Through A Glass Darkly. Part of my unoffical Bergman marathon that I began shortly after his death (a really slow marathon, I'm not even half way through). I'd probably rank this my third favorite Bergman film, just behind The Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries.

I tried to rent Bergman's movies after his death from Netflix, but I guess everybody was too.  I watched The Seventh Seal just recently, and am waiting on Wild Strawberries.  Good stuff Maynard.

I went on a huge Bergman binge my freshman year of college, which was awesome because the film department gave us access to really amazing prints of old movies. 

Wild Strawberries makes me cry, as does Fanny and Alexander but I have a hard time not thinking of Deconstructing Harry when watching Wild Str. - haha

Yeah, Allen's 'homagery'  is pretty blatant with that one.  I must confess, I've only ever seen Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries but I loved them both - Strawberries more, because it was relatable - but I did have a problem with them that I still can't seem to get over: The language.  The sing-song way in which the Dutch language is spoken is completely different to any other accent I've heard and for me, it's really off-putting! Talk normal!  ;)

When I got the Seventh Seal from Netflix it was dubbed in English.  Hopefully Wild Strawberries is dubbed too.  The dubbing was pretty good, very unlike Neptune Men.
