When I get back home, I'll post an update on my Woody and Scorsese Fests, gang.

I hate Hollywood. Stop with the remakes!

First I hear Leonardo DiCaprio is planning on making a live action version of Akira.

Now Keanu Reeves is starring in a remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still.

Woody Fest, so far:

1. Annie Hall *****
2. Crimes and Misdemeanors ****1/2
3. Hannah and Her Sisters ****1/2
4. Love and Death ****1/2
5. The Purple Rose of Cairo ****1/2
6. Manhattan ****1/2
7. Stardust Memories ****
8. Deconstructing Harry ****
9. Sleeper ****
10. Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask ****
11. Zelig ***1/2
12. Everyone Says I Love You ***1/2
13. Radio Days ***1/2
14. Broadway Danny Rose ***1/2
15. Bullets Over Broadway ***
16. Bananas ***
17. A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy ***
18. What's Up, Tiger Lily? ***
19. Melinda and Melinda **1/2

Scorsese Fest:

1. Raging Bull *****
2. GoodFellas *****
3. Mean Streets ****1/2
4. Taxi Driver ****1/2
5. Gangs of New York ****1/2
6. The Last Temptation of Christ ****1/2
7. The Departed ****1/2
8. The Age of Innocence ****
9. Casino ***1/2
10. Cape Fear ***1/2
11. The Color of Money ***

If you guys would like clarification on any of my ratings, I'd love to go into that. Right now, I'm trying to do Woody, Scorsese, and '07 releases all at a time through NetFlix, with the occasional DVR, it's working pretty well. I've got about 5 left to watch on the Woody set, too.

YLB, how incredible was DeNiro in Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Mean Streets? I think people sometimes forget how awesome this guy was.

I don't think I've seen anything like it. Even D-Day in Gangs, TWBB, and Mohicans had some similarities.

Raging Bull had my favorite performance of his, but the other two are close. I was surprised at how subdued he was in Taxi Driver until the very end - it didn't hit me as much as Mean Streets (performance-wise and as a whole), but was still a great film. I'll have to watch it again to pick up on a few things I felt I missed.

All three were watched on a regular TV, too. That's fucking spectacular in and of itself.

My pants just traveled a little.

And YLB, did you ever go into detail on Cape Fear? I think it's one of the more underrated Marty films.

That was one of the first of his films that I had seen. I'll need to re-watch it to get a better opinion on it. I do remember enjoying the Hitchcock pastiche mixed with the psychedelia... and the 4th of July sequence.

Of my friend GAF, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most... human
