Fashionably late to every party since 1473!

I haven't seen Chocolat, Code 46, or Lust, Caution. As for the others, Memento is the only one that's probably a sure shot for my list.

Lust, Caution would (imo) be the best of those you've not seen.

Whether any I've mentioned make my list or not remains to be seen but I will say that there've sadly been quite a few I've rewatched over the past few months that either didn't hold up that well or I was remembering with somewhat rose-tinted spectacles on. Which means I've a few more I need to rewatch that I currently have in the realms of ballot consideration, just in case the same happens, but I'll not post about them as the deadline will already be fast approaching by that point.

Yeah, there are a bunch of films that I remember loving/liking a lot, but haven't seen in a long, long time... I will probably steer away from those, if I can't remember anything about it beyond loving/liking it.



I watched a couple of very good tearjerkers showing how people deal with the grief of losing a loved one. They're worth mentioning here for anyone who's still working on their list, (or anyone who just wants to watch them).


Grace Is Gone (2007)




The Greatest (2009)

Just rewatched a fun one. Alas, it won't make my list but hope it shows up in the top 100.

"Confessions of a Dangerous Mind"(2002)
Interesting man, the guy that movie is about (and who wrote the autobiographical Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) - Chuck Barris. Hosted The Gong Show and starred in one of the worst films ever made - The Gong Show Movie (1980) - but was he really an assassin for the C.I.A.? I remember getting into all of that a few years ago, and watching that same film you just saw after reading the book. Wouldn't mind seeing that one again.

Just re-watched "The Girl Next Door". Think its one of the funniest films of the decade. Timothy Olyphant plays the prick perfectly.


I remember loving Olyphant, but thinking the film itself was "meh". Haven't seen it in a while, though.



Yeah, I remember really loving that film, but haven't seen it in ages.
