No huge surprises she far. I expected Beasts to be a bit higher but thought we would see it by now.

Off to see if I still have my list.

In A Glass Cage: I watched it...and I'm sending in my list.

I will write a couple obligatory lines. To me this movie is about the holocaust in the same way the Rambo movies are about Vietnam. In...

I definitely think you are supposed to feel the way you did about the father. In fact I would call neglect abusive. I think part of the heartache of the film is that coupled with the fact that they...

Barry Lyndon: I am an easy sell with costume dramas. Add to that the fact that this movie is pretty much a black comedy, and I am all in. Great score and gorgeous cinematography. I also think O'Neal...

It's always fun for me when the Welles guy tells us how over indulgent other directors are. ;)

Seriously though, I feel like I used to feel that way about a lot of movies. Somewhere along the line...

I saw Deer Hunter not long ago, so I may have skipped the rewatch anyway. I really enjoyed it but this HOF has some good flicks in it. I'm thinking it would have been between 5 and 7

I'm sure. That's probably why he kept it ambiguous here. The themes could work anywhere, don't you think?

Shame: Realized not long into my second watch that I had no idea what war this movie takes place during. I assumed WWII, but I actually had no idea. That's because Bergman does what no director, in...

The Secret In Their Eyes: Really good thriller. Quite a few standout scenes. I like the aesthetic. I thought the dialogue was sharp, and often fun.

I wasn't in love with the romantic plot, and it...

I didn't realize he was the shooter till that moment, and I definitely think that's intentional. It's supposed to be a shock and question any sympathy you were feeling. I would say that's the point...

Really good point about him recording himself. Kind of embarrassed I didn't think of that.

I am enjoying this conversation, but kind of wished we weren't having it because it is making me...

What comes to mind is the scene where the lawyer is saying technically suicide is against the law but people who attempt it and fail aren't prosecuted. He went to great lengths to make sure no one...

I fully agree with the bolded part. In response to your last paragraph. I mean, ultimately it's not. If I decide to put a gun in my mouth tomorrow, it's done, no matter what anyone says. I don't...

I watched it last night and don't remember the panic attack. Lol I really thought the movie went out of its way to always make his point much stronger than the families. The scene towards the end...

I do want to be clear that the way I feel about the character wasn't my criticism. My favorite movies are littered with sociopaths, crimi also, and killers. To me the way the movie is constructed...

I don't have a problem with what Thief said but I don't think it's too much ask for a PM to you or a post saying they are still in. Feb 10 seems reasonable.
