Fair enough.

212, did you see Captain Hook or 1941? Not everything the man does is great.

NSW, go to page 9 of this thread, and look at movie number 32 on my list, I think that'll answer your question

I grew up watching Spielberg, I guess even as a kid, I was a bit of a snob when it came to movies, I'm not easily amused or movied by grandiose, expensive, extravagent special effects, as I am by a good story, simple. Good story, good acting, obviosuly directing/cinematography/creativity have much to do with it. But I've always found that big, boisterous films are just not my cup of tea, most of them are unoriginal and made on the sole reason to make money ..not to mention very predictable & boring. Dont know if that made any sense...

- Sunshine
- Life Is Beautiful (one of the most amazing films I ever saw)
- Seabiscuit
- Moulin Rouge
- Donnie Darko
- The Silence Of The Lambs
- Bram Stoker's Dracula
...

Usually conforming saddens me, but in this case, it was the right thing to do.

Silence of the Lambs, nice. The rare movie that is better than the book, or at least as good.

Keep those lists coming.

Silence of the Lambs is an amazing movie, but I have a hard time watching that one repeatedly unless it's on TV.

I'm never like:

"Hey, there's nothing on, let's watch a movie about serial killer who wears human skin and the FBI agent trying to get info on him from a cannibal."

Repeatability is a good sign for a film, but sometimes seeing it once or twice does the trick.

I will NEVER watch Requiem for a Dream again, but, it made a satrong impression on me, that's for sure.

I still need to see that too, but I've heard it's fucked up.

And a Wayans brother is in it.

Yeah, but he's not playing a typical Wayans role.

It is fucked up, but, pretty powerful. I know a lot of people that loved it, and many that hated it. I can't say it's the kind of film where I say "I loved it", because it disturbed me, but, again, it made an impression for a few reasons, and I'll never forget it.

Nice.

I saw The Fountain in theaters and still do not understand it. Is that the typical Aranofsky style? Making something that is damn near understandable?

I didn't see The Fountain, but would like to. Pi I thought I understood but it's possible I missed some things, and Requiem was easily understood....

Off to Cubs/Sox....
