Oh, I know it's a bit early, but where would you guys put No Country for Old Men in the grand scheme of Coen Bros. films?

It can go anywhere in the Top 5, really.

*Pre-No Country Rankings*
1. Barton Fink
2. The Man Who Wasn't There
3. The Big Lebowski
4. O Brother, Where Art Thou?
5. Miller's Crossing
6. Fargo
7. Blood Simple.
8. The Hudsucker Proxy
9. Raising Arizona
10. Intolerable Cruelty

The only one I didn't like was Intolerable Cruelty. I don't intend to see The Ladykillers and I haven't seen their segment of Paris, je t'aime yet.

I think it's probably the best thing they've ever done, though I haven't yet seen Blood Simple or The Man Who Wasn't There. But I honestly can't see either of those films beating No Country personally, however good they may be.

It was like a perfect blend of some of the best of their filmography. Kind of like a hybrid of Miller's Crossing / Fargo / Blood Simple. / Raising Arizona (stylistically)

This was far, far better than their "previous masterpiece" Fargo though, even if it has Buscemi.

I'm almost afraid to post in here with you guys!

I saw 'The Holiday' yesterday, and liked it (Kate Winslet, Jack Black, Cameron Diaz and Jude Law)

I'll have you know, Jack Black is a fundamental necessity to the art and industry of cinema... nay! A treasure even.

His debut appearance in the 1991 television series "Our Shining Moment" was a landmark performance for all the visual and theatrical arts as we know them today. His breakthrough performance as Teenage boy (skater/hockey player) is one that will mark bold in the history book for centuries to come, and our children's children's children's great-grandchildren's grandchildren will read of his illustrious and daring career as a true auteur while farming their moon colonies for astro-spud.

I'm Not There

I don't really know where to start with this since I'm unsure where the film really begins and ends. One thing I know for certain is Cate Blanchett has another Oscar nomination (at the very least) coming her way.

The interweaving of the six Dylans is done exceptionally well, but I found the Jude Quinn (Blanchett) sequences to be the most engaging. All parts were well acted and the film darts in and out through different parts of Dylan's life seamlessly.

It was pretty interesting, that's about the best I can say. I don't know how non-Dylanphiles will enjoy it. Personally, though, I liked it and am having a hell of a time trying to decipher it.



Also, I saw No Country a few days ago and agree with you guys on how perfect it was.

Did any of you guys see the trailer for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly with No Country?

I've been trying to find 2 of the songs in the trailer, the other one was Explosions in the Sky. Either way, that movie looks good.

I saw the trailer. Don't remember anything about it really, except that it looked good.

Oh yeah, I may need to revise my Top 10 Woody Allen films after that double feature tonight.

I hadn't seen The Purple Rose of Cairo in ages and now I'm convinced it's one of his very, very best. I was almost in tears at the end.

I think I had it in my Top 10 before, and the problem is he has too many masterpieces. But I'm thinking:

1. Stardust Memories
2. Annie Hall
3. Crimes and Misdemeanors
4. The Purple Rose of Cairo
5. Everyone Says I Love You
6. Manhattan
7. Hannah and Her Sisters
8. Manhattan Murder Mystery
9. Sleeper
10. Match Point

Guess I better watch Stardust Memories a few times. Don't know why I've missed that one



Liked the Purple Rose of Cairo too. It kinda got passed over when it came out, maybe cuz Woody wasn' t in it. Some great lines from the cast when Daniels steps out of the screen Can't seem to remember how it ends, I don't think they're together though, are they


And Everybody Says I love You was a fun one too. Great cast, good songs. it was a real surprise when I finally saw it.

Here's my favorites:

1. Broadway Danny Rose
2. Manhattan
3. Crimes & Midemeanors
4. Hannah & Her Sisters
5. Annie Hall
6. Love & Death
7. Everyone Says I Love You
8. Zelig
9. Purple Rose of Cairo
10. What's Up Tiger Lily
11. Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex
12. Sleeper
13. Bananas
14, Take the Money & Run
15. Play it Again, Sam

I'm going back and forth and back and forth about either seeing I'm Not There or No Country For Old Men today ... which probably means I'll stay in and see neither.
