    I still haven't seen the Litvak version which is a bit odd considering the fact that I saw the 2011 version 4 or 5 times already. Hm I'm not sure about celluloid, I just know they have a huge movie collection, in fact one of the biggest ones in Europe. I did see a lot of good movies there, some of them for the 2nd time, like The Big Sleep or All About Eve but what I loved most was seeing Seven Chances by Keaton. It was accompanied by live piano music and everybody clapped to the guy playing it when the film finished. I find it amazing that something like this actually happens! I know, I was also shocked when I first saw Jimmy as the villain in that film, it took me by surprise! Hm I wasn't sure about Twin Peaks coming back but knowing Lynch is directly involved with the whole thing does make me feel better about it. I can't imagine it anybody else's hands without him, it just wouldn't work for me.

    Van Gogh is the most common potato variety in Finland. It is a mix of ZPC 69 C 239 and Gloria. Of course.

    Thank you. We eat mostly potatoes here.

    I think it's the atmosphere of that film and the cinematography that keeps making me come back to it, it truly feels like post-war London. Actually, I had to check and besides those films, I've seen 6 others with Powell and yeah, I'd recommend pretty much all of them. They're mostly his other pairings with Myrna Loy though. I guess I like them together so much I saw almost all of their films. Ah yes, I remember that line, there are so many memorable ones from that film. Yep, all settled in Brussels and loving every second of it. There's even a cinema that shows old films and a cafe that looks like it fell out of the 1940s where they only play jazz. Even though I'm staying here for months I'm dreading leaving it when I think of next year. Yes, The Enemy was actually one of the few films I saw this summer and you're completely right by making those parallels with Lynch and Hitchcock. It was a very odd movie that I couldn't quite make up my mind about after the first viewing.

    setembro 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    Ah yes, I feel like I see this movie every year, usually on a late September night. I just love that scene when everybody in the cafe sings along to the song 'You Belong To Me'. Btw I feel like we've talked about this movie before, no? Yes, the book does have a comedic tone but you know how comedy's different in a book and then in a movie. It's certainly much more humorous than Red Harvest. Powell's amazing, I actually rewatched My Man Godfrey a couple of months ago since I last saw it in high school and couldn't remember a thing about it. I kinda like that, revisiting those classics so many years after and seeing them differently in some way. I suppose the same goes for books as well.

    Oops! My bad! I honestly prefer Frank over Back to Black, but I do like B2B a lot. There are some songs missing? I did not know that. I have fifteen in the one I have.

    I'm going to have to start saying the same thing about It's A Wonderful Life, maybe that will encourage people to actually see it since everybody gives up as soon as they hear it's from 1946. Oh I understand what you meant now. Well I really love The Thin Man series so that's why I read the book but it's not quite like the film. I think I love certain classic movies so much that I would always prefer the film over the book. It's just even better than I imagine it in my head while reading it, I don't know. I would still recommend the sequels though, I enjoyed them.

    setembro 2014
  • stagnate

    Hi Sam, I'm Sam, also. I like your description and charts, a lot.

    setembro 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    Yes, It's a Wonderful Life was his first film after the war and I remember reading somewhere that the war experience was the reason for this change in roles. But I still like the fact that he could do a comedy and a serious film even after that, for example Harvey and Rear Window. I suppose since most of his new comedies weren't as popular as the older ones, they're not that memorable. Wait, so did I understand correctly, you don't like anything Hitchcock did in the 60s - including or excluding Birds and Psycho? Okay, and I did not know that True Grit had a sequel! Hm that would have to be Atonement, probably my favorite adaptation. The book itself is one of my favorite books ever and I think the adaptation was flawless. Also, I would add Into the Wild, which was brilliant and The Thin Man, which is actually better than the book and that's mostly cause of Powell and Loy, they're simply perfect together.

    nice charts dude. Love the description, thinking the same. cheers

    Sorry for the delayed reply, I've spent these days settling down in Belgium. Well, I really love Jimmy so I'll equally enjoy both his early and later stuff. Though I think a little part of me will always prefer his earlier stuff just a bit more. You know what, she did and I didn't know it was a western movie until I read her autobiography where she talked about John Wayne who also starred in it. It's called Rooster Cogburn and I haven't seen it yet. Yeah, when it comes to books like On the Road you're bound to flop more often than to succeed. Back when I reread the book in February, I was inspired to watch the movie again, even though I knew I wasn't going to like it on 2nd viewing but still, for some reason I felt I needed to see Dean Moriarty and not just read about him. In general, I did evoke the movie's cinematography as I was reading the book so I assume that's why I saw the film again.

    agosto 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    Well, sort of 2/3 of their films and I did leave Jimmy's westerns for the end so I didn't end up seeing many of those. I don't know, during that time they were showing a lot of things in Spanish and it was at the time that I happened to come back from school, so it was mostly hearing that while eating lunch since my mom would watch it on tv. However it was, I'm grateful for it cause learning Spanish will be easier once I take it up. Yes, I took it as a flashback and well, I think the 2nd post here explains the whole timeline really well. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2042568/board/thread/225117709

  • cecilia12lynch

    I once tried watching every film with Jimmy Stewart or Katharine Hepburn and of course, I also realized how many movies were impossible to find. Yeah, but the thing is I picked up Spanish as a kid by listening to it through films and on TV so that's why I understand it that much. I think it mattered that I first heard it from an early age and not now. And yes, it's always been through movies for most languages, books in English and French music.

    julho 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    I never thought of watching films by the year, sounds like an interesting thing to do. Well, I use English actively and I know German but it's been a while since I used it. Also I understand 70% of Spanish even though I've never learned it. The thing is I learn best by listening to the language so that's why I was always familiar with these languages, and Italian too. Well, along with The Darjeeling Limited, this new one is my favorite film by Anderson. It's shot so beautifully that I wanted to live inside the movie.

    Not sure. Why do you ask?

    junho 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    Oh it's okay, no big deal. I'm very good, at home finally so no, I haven't seen many movies because of that and I only got to half of Rohmer's filmography. I'll finish the other half when I start learning French in Brussels, which is a long story but kind of the reason that I started watching French films more often than usual. And actually, I just remembered, before I got home I saw The Grand Budapest Hotel and it was great.

    The Bakery Girl of Monceau is really good. After watching 8 of his films, I still don't have a favorite one, but I particularly liked The Collector and My Night with Maud. I still have to see his Tales of the four seasons which seem great. Yes, I saw Lady a Day a while ago, I still remember that ending, it was so lovely.

    Well I think Noam Chomsky and Chirs Hedges are relatively popular in the USA or they aren't? Despite finding them to be bland and reformist they are far more intersting (specially Chomsky) than J.Stewart and M.Moore. Sam, in your country or at least among the people you see on regular basis (family, friends, neighbours classmates, workmates....) how many of them believe that the USA is spreading freedom and democracy around the world? I fear its almost all of the people. Once I met an american that told me he realised, once he traveled outside his country how deluded most of people there were and that the american society lives in a bubble. I think that has been pushed over the throat of the american people to embrace the concept of "american exceptionalism". Here, in Spain, since its an imperialist country of 3rd category we dont have that thing. Most spaniards have a love/hate relationship with their own country.

    I seriously can't stop watching Rohmer's films, I'm loving them, the scenarios, the setting, everything. No, I only saw Upstream Color once. I'm not sure if I would see it again though, not cause it's bad or unwatchable for a 2nd time, I just don't think I could get that same feeling I got the first time I saw it. I don't know, with movies like that those, I guess you either get something out of it the first time or you don't but maybe that's just me, I only go back to movies I really loved.

    Thanks for the visitation.

  • cecilia12lynch

    I never read The Fall, only The Stranger and The Plague. Well, it was a good movie but all that semi-documentary style seemed more amateur than stylistic or whatever it was supposed to be. I guess that was one thing I didn't like but the ending scene was great. I don't know, I've seen The Bakery Girl of Manceau, Suzanne's Career and La Collectionneuse and that last one was really good. I have a feeling Rohmer's movies are perfect for watching in the summer what with them often being set in the summer, somewhere in the south of France. I've only seen Le Boucher and La Beau Serge from Chabrol, I liked those a lot but never got to watching more of his movies.

    maio 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    First time I read The Stranger was 9 years ago so I should definitely reread it haha. Yeah, the other day I decided to watch He Walked by Night for that scene and actually, I was surprised to see this movie came out a year before The Third Man, considering that sewer scene. I'm glad you liked Summertime. Have you ever seen anything by Rohmer? I just started with his Six moral tales last night and so far, I'm really liking it.

    maio 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    I liked The Stranger adaptation though I saw it 6 years ago. I just remember that it followed the book very closely. Yes, the zither score and I loved the depiction of Vienna at night. Now that I think of it, I guess I really love Vienna by night since I adore Before Sunrise as well. Yeah, I think she actually wrote in her autobiography that she loved working with him and if I'm not mistaken, he regarded it as his own favorite movie. So did you finish Upstream Color then?

  • DanosTheMan

    wow thank you so much!! you listen to a lot of really great stuff!

  • cecilia12lynch

    Oh Welles' The Stranger, for a second I thought you meant that Camus adaptation with Mastroianni, which I have seen unlike Welles' movie. Yes, what I've seen by Welles so far, I've really liked. The Third Man is probably one of my favorite movies ever. I haven't seen all of Hepburn's performances (yet) and actually I feel like most of her roles are always praised. I guess I'd name Holiday, Summertime, Stage Door and maybe State of the Union cause that wasn't the type of role you could often see her in.

    maio 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    So did you end up seeing Welles' Othello? That's actually one of his movie I haven't seen yet. Yes, I did hear about Fading Gigolo and I'm eager to see it cause it seems like it's going to be funny. Well, I'll probably end up seeing it again at one point cause I love watching her movies more than once since there are so many good ones.

    Well, I guess Croatia isn't much for indie cinema, except for its main capital maybe. I did watch Sylvia Scarlett about two summers ago but I don't remember anything about it now because I paused it to go somewhere and then saw the other half 4 hours later. Bad idea, I don't know why I did that with a Hepburn/Grant movie, I love them. Oh thank you, it was an accidentally taken photo. Btw I saw Primer the other night, and even though I liked it, I still prefer Upstream Color, that film was weirdly amazing.

    I thought I wrote something here last night but obviously not. Anyhow, it went something like this - Actually, there's only one cinema here, while in my hometown there's nothing for watching new movies. So I was lucky when it came to Before Midnight, it was shown on two film festivals in Croatia, one that happened to be where I was. And that's it, there was no official release in the cinemas, cause if there had been, I would've went and seen it again. You're right, it's been months! In fact, we've been talking for so long that I'm starting to forget what we did and didn't talk about, and I'm saying this mainly cause I'm not sure if I already mentioned the above at one point.

    Oh I misunderstood then, I thought you saw it recently, but I guess those are the things that stuck with you, the story and the score. Yes, Boyhood, I can't wait to see it. It looks like a unique project cause of the way it was shot throughout all those years. I'm interested in seeing it but that's probably gonna take longer than usual since everything concerning movies is late here.

    abril 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    I haven't seen Primer, but I've seen Carruth's second film, Upstream Color. That was one of the weirdest movies I've ever seen. It's a great movie but you just keep asking yourself where the hell did he get the idea for this movie! Any thoughts on the movie Never Let Me Go?

    I've beat probably 5 PS2 games, tops, and those were just the KH and GTA games, and one other RPG called Radiata Stories. I wish the churches here had game systems, alas no they take worship time a bit too seriously. lol, I probably one of them AGES on ago on Sega Channel, but ya, they ain't cheap either. Both of em are in the 30 range. For some reason Capcom decided to start supporting Sega with the Saturn and Dreamcast but practically ignored the Genesis save a few games. Pretty lame in retrospect; an ORIGINAL Mega Man would've been incredible. I got sidetracked reading a Beefheart book, but I've liked what I read of the Moz auto so far. A bit 'wordy' in spots, but that's to be expected with him, lol. Here's a whacked up early price guide from 93 I think; Here's a screwed up early price guide from 93 I think http://img234.imageshack.us/img234/5097/93aam7.jpg

    I think they're pretty cool, and I'll probably buy them. It's been 20 years since there's been a massive reissue campaign like this, and I'm more than interested in hearing the unreleased material, even if its a bunch of alternate takes. I hate seeing those multi machines that have like 5 games on the marquee. GIVE ME SEPARATE CABINETS. Dude, our malls are dead, even the Monroeville one (aka the Dawn of the Dead mall). Nothing but dim lights and empty stores, and its depressing as all hell. The history of video games goes hand in hand with history class, lol. No course about the history of 1980s American culture should be without a section on video games and their effect on the people and popular culture of the time. Yeah, I'm not playing the thing until I get some rechargables or something. There's tons of great shooters, and the Japanese PC Engine/CD library is deep as all hell, one of the jewels being Rondo of Blood of course.

  • cecilia12lynch

    I kinda liked Sunshine when I saw it a couple of months ago and I finally saw Moon, now that was really good! I gotta see Source Code, I didn't even know it was by the same director. Oh you mean Never Let Me Go, the book? Well, as soon as I finished it I played the movie so of course the movie was rather underwhelming. I mean, the book is really amazing and it makes you think on its subject, but nevertheless it's a good adaptation, just not brilliant. I'd still recommend both the book and movie.

    março 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    When I said old ones, I meant those that are considered sci-fi classics today. True, there have been some good ones made recently, but most of them seem like a concoction of several classics. And exactly what you said, action pictures in disguise. Never Let Me Go was a brilliant book, I remember reading it and thinking about it for weeks after.

    março 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    Not necessarily Star Wars, though seriously, who needs all of those versions, the originals were more than enough. I do like the old sci-fi movies, in fact I love some of them, it's just that most of them coming out nowadays seem like rehashed material, nothing original or interesting. I haven't seen Moon yet, I've been postponing it for too long but maybe I should finally see it now.

    março 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    I do remember liking Casino Royale when it came out. I guess there are a couple of blockbusters that I liked. What I really dislike are those endless franchises. I mean, as a kid I loved sf movies, but I can't stand watching them today anymore. Oh I remember seeing An American in Paris years ago and I still recall the dance sequence towards the ending. I completely forgot about the movie and I really liked it back then.

    março 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    It was still amazing, even without Deakins. I still haven't seen Skyfall, though I have a friend who keeps telling me to see it. I'm not really into musicals, only old ones like Singin' in the Rain and a couple of Astaire/Rogers films but other than that, I honestly get bored while watching most musicals.

    HotD does indeed kick ass, but it gets sad when its the only game you see wherever you turn. I want to find a genuine arcade, surely one has to exist here somewhere. Splatterhouse is great and I of course want the 2 Genesis sequels. Bonk's solid and so is Legendary Axe, but the sequel is supposed to be even better. I've yet to see one in the wild (I see and buy Gennys all the time tho), which is why finding that TurboExpress was so weird and awesome. I'd MAKE space for an arcade machine, lol, but I probably have the space for one at my dad's store. Those are people that aren't worth knowing then, lol. I posted the pics on your RYM.

    março 2014

    That's insane, yet there's probably some delusional being out there who owns them all. Lol, let's entice unwilling kids to come to our 'house of worship' by having the greatest gaming system known to man at our disposal! Honestly, I'd go...to worship the Dreamcast that is! Stuff like Stadium Events, Bonk, Little Samson, etc. were known about in the NES circles, but Funcoland probably didn't care. They knew drones would come in to buy the Mario 3's/Zeldas/etc. at whatever price, so whatever they made from much rarer games was just icing on the cake. I'll have to find you some of those price guides, they're a riot in retrospect. Do so, it did the free roaming thing right IMO. I hope to own it someday, I mean damn online its not too bad, but the stores here charge 40 and up cause people will buy it. Yeah, like I said, franchising a game is the worst thing you can do.

    março 2014
  • cecilia12lynch

    Everything, I'm still smitten by it so much that I can't find a flaw in it. I loved the music, the acting, the cinematography was so beautiful and the script was well-rounded. I think I need to see it again, or I just want to see it again. It was just so beautifully melancholic. Oh yeah, I forgot to say that I had seen The Sterile Cuckoo a couple of weeks ago, it was good and sad like you said, and Liza's character certainly looked like she would fit in some of Wes Anderson's films.
