You did not watch that movie, you liar. Liar, liar.

I watched my two new Judge Judy DVDs, & then I watched "Kid Galahad" with Cagney & Davis. No, not Jim Davis -- Bette Davis.

I re-watched three movies that are not available on dvd but are available on my dvr (I burned them for a friend for his birthday).

All 3 are by Frank Borzage, one of my ten favoritest filmmakers of all time. These *might* be my very favoritest of his movies and are among the very greatest of all time. I call them the "military" trilogy. *whistle* (they are not war movies, by the way) Definately worth checking out on TCM sometime!

No Greater Glory (1934)
Shipmates Forever (1935)
The Stage Door Canteen (1943)

Finally time to catch up on some movies.

Public Enemies. Thought it was good. Why do we always pull for the bad guys?

Star Trek. About as lame as the old TV show, but with awesome sound.

Passengers. Liked this one very much. First Anne Hathaway movie that I've liked.

Vicki Cristina Barcelona. Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson....eye candy.

Doubt. Hard to watch, but very good acting.

Frost/Nixon. Very interesting political movie.

The Taking of Pelham 123. If you like hearing the "F" word rent this.

Last Chance Harvey. I don't have children, but a few scenes will make you
hurt for Dustin Hoffman's charecter.

The Corpse Bride. I bought this on Blu ray disc and it looks and sounds awesome.

^^^ i love that movie very much and john travolta is crazy "you're my ****ing hero"

today in about 2 hrs i will be watching Inglorious Bastards with by friend alexa...getting ready to go to her house now we were supposed to be watching crows zero 2 but she doesnt have it..

Australia...i loved this movie and the little boy in it is really cute (creamy?? really can ppl be any more original? sucks that ppl were/still are soooooo ignorant that they could kill there own kid just because they are a different race..)

if only they still had the Japanese Horror section on FearNet but for some reason they took it off.. i recommend watching One Missed Call 1,2 &3 of course the american version of the movie is really stupid and the ringtone isnt even creepy.. (i have the japanese ringtone on my phone) but i will say that the american vers of the Eye wasnt really all that bad..but i wont say it was amazing either..it was just eh.

Had you not gone to college & studied Hollywood movies, post-colonialism, post-gender identity, post-modernism, post-marxism, post-Foucaultism, post-auteurism, post-Baudrillardism, post-Derridaism, & every other post-this-&-that theory, would you still consider "Stage Door Canteen" one of the "very greatest" movies of all time? Be honest!

I've rewatched some of my all-time favorite movies in the last two or so weeks:

Stardust Memories: Probably my favorite film of all time, even if just for one scene of the entire movie.
8 1/2: I don't think a lot of people would argue that this is the best film to ever come out of Italy.
An Education: Awesome movie. It might still be in theaters, although you'd have to really look... only our local CineArts played it.
Dead Poet's Society: The writer in me dies a little bit every time I watch this movie. Why is this not my life? Why can't I walk around my school quoting Tennyson all the time? Oh wait, I do.... its just that I get laughed at.
Doubt: We actually watched this in my Christian Vocations class last week, even though I've seen in multiple times before that. My teacher's intention in showing the film was definitely not pro-Catholic, so a nice little classroom "debate" erupted afterward. Meryl Streep is perfect.
The English Patient: Not one of my favorites by a long shot, but I did watch this after reading the book.... in comparison to how unbelievably perfect the novel is, the movie was disappointing. So if you like the movie, READ THE BOOK.

It isn't even the best film to ever come out of Fellini, let alone Italy!

Think of all the great work from De Sica, Rossellini, Antonioni, Visconti, the Taviani brothers, & my favorite Bellocchio!

I can't think of anything else to say that would be appropriate for using yet another exclamation point!

How are you today, Dani?!!!!!!

I was about to say the same thing!

Though you forgot Bertolucci!

What would be my pick for greatest movie to come out of Italy? L'Avventura! (Though when I was her age, my favorite was Shoeshine.)

As for appropriate hyperbole, I think one could argue this: 8-1/2 is the most beautiful black-and-white movie of the 60s!!!!

Well, I don't know. I wouldn't be me. That said: Borzage was not one of the filmmakers we studied at my film school.

What'd you think?

I thought it was actually pretty humorous and it wasn't all that scary, until the last two minutes.
That very last scene was creeeeeepy!

And apparently it affected me somehow because I couldn't sleep the night that I watched it.
