Anyway, I need to go grocery shopping, so I'll see you folk in 45 minutes or so.

I plan to see them early, no matter where they open...then in at least 4-5 US cities....and, hopefully, for the first time I'll see them in Europe. It's the NSW goes broke U2 tour 2009.

I just don't understand why people love The Godfather so much. I don't see what's so great about it either thematically or visually. Well...I'll take back Visually, when my aesthetics class spent FOREVER discussing the filming of it and what they went through to make it look as realistic as possible, THEN I was impressed.

It'll be interesting to read what you think of PDL, I remember you not being too high on P.T. Anderson in the past.
The Godfather was really well shot and directed but the film never interested me.

Punch-Drunk Love is an Anderson film? Honestly I don't think I can watch it now.

No, seriously I'll give it a chance.

Yeah, we're at opposite ends of the spectrum here. Cannot for the life of me see how anyone that claims to love film could watch it and dislike it, but, hey, it's a different era and people like what they like. People today fawn over comedies like Anchor Man or Knocked Up and I want to ram any of 10-15 Woody Allen films down their throat so they can watch a real comedy, but it would go unappreciated, so what's the point?

I remember the very first time I listened to HTDAAB I liked it, but I had this bad feeling that it was going to be a limited time only.

Punch Drunk Love is great, and, Screw, I actually think it's a bit up your alley, and I mean that sincerely, not disparagingly.

I like to think that I've got a pretty good spectrum of film respect. Casablanca is one of my favorite films, The Godfather though, is one of my least favorite. I will also admit that I really like Anchorman and Knocked Up, and I have yet to have seen a Woody Allen film (the opportunity just hasn't presented itself, but if you recommend one to me, I'll rent it tomorrow), but in the long run, I've always felt that wha'ts funny is relative.

That's cool.

I think you'll relate to PDL and like it more than you think. It's a more low-key film than Boogie Nights or Magnolia - more of a transition toward the singularly-driven There Will Be Blood, have you seen that yet?

then ram them down our throats

i like older movies usually even more than their contemporaries. and as for the two you listed, i know they're just examples, but anchorman is good but knocked up...i liked it when it came out but i don't like it as much anymore. especially for superbad. in retrospect, i think it's just kinda ehh now.

I keep repeating...ALL tastes are relative and subjective. It goes without saying. That's why I do not question anyone's taste, nor trick myself into thinking that I have great taste. I like what I like, and surely, some things stand out more than others to me, but overall, I do not expect anyone to like what I like....and if they do, fantastic.

I laughed at Knocked Up, a little less at Anchorman, but I doubt you will watch either in 10 years and laugh the same way. But if you do, awesome!

I can recommend tons of Allen films. Watch Annie Hall. If you dislike it, no need to continue, you don't like Woody Allen.

I just hate when people refuse to watch old movies without a good reason. That's when my film snobbery quietly erupts all in their bi'ness.
