I'll pick out some 60's albums I find unpalatable and get back to you.

Reckoning? Awesome. The first half is quality, especially So. Central Rain. I haven't got into the second half quite so much, though.

Michael Clayton, Be Kind Rewind, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, and Cloverfield (which I've already seen and will watch/compare to The Host) are all on the torrent queue, waiting to join Eyes Wide Shut, Taxi Driver, and both Kill Bill flicks.

It has some knockout tunes, but is much thinner than Murmur. It's a little over a half hour long.

The only one of those I've seen is Taxi Driver. It wasn't without its moments, but didn't care for it all that much. I recall giving it a 7/10.

It's part of the ongoing Scorses-athon. Goodfellas, Gangs of New York, and The Departed are all fucking awesome, hope this is the same.

I remember reading your review of it a few months back.

Diving Bell was fantastic. Eyes Wide Shut very unfairly maligned. Taxi Driver is fucking phenomenal.

Taxi Driver is a great film.

You had a lot of great movies on your 70's list. I really need to see Dog Day Afternoon. You totally covered the great comedy movies of the 70's.

Will watch Casino before I go to sleep, too.

Kill Bill vol. 2 > Kill Bill vol. 1

Vol. 1 had more action, but Vol. 2 had more story. Plus it had Pai Mei

I want to watch Goodfellas next. Love that kind of film, and Scorsese is a brilliant director (though Taxi Driver wasn't quite to my taste, it looked amazing).

Thank you.

I can't recommend Dog Day enough, it's arguably Pacino's greatest performance apart from his work in The Godfather Part II, to me at least.

Gonna try and watch Blue Velvet in the next couple of days, that high on your Lynch list?
