lol. Well, maybe second greatest. :)
I’d give Godfather about a 9/10.
Great film undoubtedly, but IMO should not be automatically considered in the ‘greatest ever’ conversation just because of it’s notoriety.
I’ll settle it… REDS is the greatest movie EVER.
THE TURIN HORSE – 5/5
Remarkable. It shouldn’t work, it should be a big solid bore but every minute works, every gesture tells, the repetitions are never merely repetitious and that damned horse should win the Oscar for Best Actress.
One of the better coming of age films I’ve seen in years. Really well-observed and surprisingly charming. Better than I anticipated.
Warrior (2011) 3/5
A Bronx Tale 9/10. it may not be a “perfect” film, but its one of those movies that really effected my life. honestly, the best dating advice i ever got was from that movie. the “door test” and yes, i’ve used it. http://youtu.be/HAJdqzRM6Dw
^That door test doesn’t work anymore! Not with the advent of keyless entry! :(
Fireflies in the Garden (Director: Dennis Lee)
Willem Dafoe is very good as the abusive father but he can play that role in his sleep. It feels like a lot of this movie was left on the cutting room floor and it probably was since it sat on the shelf for nearly 5 years. Parts of it are ok but it’s awfully slight and cliched.
The American Friend- !0/10
Is that a 10/10 or an emphatic 0/10?

The Raid – 4 stars
Intense, exhilarating. Well made filmmaking, that’s for sure. I’m not much a fan of this genre but man, was this movie good!
^ Since the release of the first trailer, I’ve been wanting to see this movie so bad! I’m jealous.
Kanchenjungha (1962) – 3.5/4
What the #$*! Do We Know? (2004) 3/5
TOP HAT 5/5
Bringing Up Baby
This movie is ridiculously delightful. I’ve seen it numerous times but each watch warrants more and different laughs. The dialogue is so quick that it holds up on multiple viewings simply because you didn’t catch it all the first time. It’s always around the jail scene though that I begin to get anxious that no one listens to anyone but overall the film is good fun.
Also the chemistry between Grant and Hepburn is really spectacular to watch.
Jackie Brown 10/10
I love You Philip Morris 10/10
Some Like it Hot – 5/5
Just about as good as entertainment gets
Need more time to think but I have the same sense of having just seen something “major” as I did after… I dunno, Sansho the Bailiff or Tree of Life or w/e
Edgar g. Ulmer directs and Martin Goldsmith provided the story/screenplay in this
first rate noir done for peanuts.
