Re: Movies about Napoleon

I also want to see the 1927 Napoleon but I want to see it in it's original 4.00:1 aspect ratio but every version I can find is cropped down it seems. If the original is out there somewhere?

Re: Gimme your 5-Star ratings... for chick flicks

It pretty much is, but my women friends like it more than the usual crime drama I recommend to them.

Re: Levels of Reality in Genre Fiction

I agree with the some people about The Usual Suspects in that the movie also felt pointless to me since the whole thing was a lie.

As for how realistic movies are, I am often not bothered by it. ...
