Oh, just saw The Warriors last week, it was pretty good, although I felt they used WAY to damn much loud synthesizer music!

Sidenote: Damn, those bats were pretty damn cheap! They broke when they were being used.  Almost as if they weren't real bats, but that couldn't be... ;)

1.  Gone With The Wind  - seen enough trailers to know that I would hate it
2.  Titanic  - Leo DiCaprio...ugh....enough said
3.  House of Wax - even though I would LOVE to see Ms Hilton die a horribly gruesome death, I just can't bring myself to watch any movie that she's in
4.  Casablanca - not a huge fan of really old movies, so this one will stay unwatched.
5.  Ocean's 11, 12, 13, 567 - don't like Brad Pitt or George Clooney.

I'll post more as I think of them.

Save what has been lost

I've been trying to work my way through Film 4's "50 films to see before you die" list, and am seeing quite a few older movies that I've not seen. I just watched "The Apartment", , not a bad film.

Keep in mind that the list is NOT "the 50 best films", but rather 50 films that best reflect their particular genre. . After all, "Pink Flamingos" is on there, and I don't think it could be considered the BEST of anything. (still funny though)

Pink Flamingos is the BEST film to watch someone eating dog poo. Which really is nothing for a film to be proud of.

AIIEE!!
Killer Bees:  You simply MUST watch Casablanca, AND Gone With The Wind, if for no other reason than the incredible influence they had on so many movies that came after them -- and continue to have.
Same reason to watch Citizen Kane --
Unless you're some sort of film masochist, you really shoud see these . . .
Wait a minute . . . Where am I?
Oh!!
never mind . . .

The 10 highest rated movies on IMDB I've never seen are:

SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION (nothing about the description, cast or reviews excited me, although I put it in my NetFlix queue just because people won't stop recommending it).

CITY OF GOD  (Heard good things, just haven't got around to it yet)

MEMENTO (see CITY OF GOD, though I'm even more interested in this one)

THE MATIRIX (Keanu Reeves + the stink of a Hollywood blockbuster keeps me away.  No intention of seeing).

AMELIE (Want to see)

THE DEPARTED (2006) (Wouldn't mind seeing, but not high on my list)

AMERICAN HISTORY X (Never had any interest, but I'd watch it if someone put it in front of me)

PATHS OF GLORY (Really want to see this to complete my Kubrick viewings, along with BARRY LYNDON)

M (Of all the movies on this list, this is the one I most want to see)

ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (See AMERICAN HISTORY X)

I also missed GONE WITH THE WIND, though I've seen the others Peter recommends.

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
