I only recently read the book and am very excited to see it. I haven't heard if it's true to the book or not, and I'm skipping reviews to avoid being spoiled about if they changed it. But I do love a grand, sweeping period piece. (Yes, I loved The English Patient.)

Tomorrow I might take myself to a double-feature of No Country For Old Men and Atonement, as both are playing at the same theater downtown.

My ass will be sore after 4 hours, but that's okay.

My best friend and I decided to extend our December 26th NYC day trip to include showing of both Youth Without Youth and There Will Be Blood.

That's going to be a glorious day.

And I haven't seen The English Patient, but I do know that Atonement is my 4th best of the year, rivaling Jesse James for the 3rd spot.

Bloody UK cinemas mean that I have to wait until next year to see some of these top year end films (Jesse James, I'm Not There, There Will Be Blood, Youth Without Youth, Lust, Caution, Before The Devil Knows You're Dead, No Country For Old Men). Which is really annoying as some have been released, just not anywhere near me

Golden Compass came out though!

I never go to the theaters to watch movies, I only see them on DVD or on satellite movie channels

I'm jealous of your cine-trip, though I will be in Los Angeles so I should be able to catch both as well. Duelling reviews, perhaps?

Also, you need to get a hold of The English Patient ASAP. I don't know what kind of hype you've heard about it, or if you've read the novel, but it is probably the best example of book-to-film adaptation I've ever seen. Minghella's skill as a director is just as good, and I don't feel I'm exaggerating when I say this is probably one of the 5 best Best Picture winners of all time. I was a huge fan of Fargo, and a bit saddened the night TEP won, but after a couple of viewings I realized the Academy miraculously made the correct choice. It's the perfect blend of poetic independent spirit and the majestic craftsmanship of Golden Age Hollywood.

I'd also suggest listening to one of the commentaries afterwards (especially the one with Minghella, legendary producer Saul Zaentz, and author of the novel Michael Ondaatje). Minghella always does such a great job of illuminating the viewer on every aspect of the production in his audio tracks.

Serpico

Excellent moral story and gritty cop movie. If I could talk or grow facial hair like Pacino, then I would win at life.

9/10

Blazing Saddles

I liked it a hell of a lot more the 2nd time I saw it; maybe I wasn't in the right mood the first time, but it's a classic. It's hard to imagine Mel Brooks making two of the funniest movies ever made in one year (the other being the slightly superior Young Frankenstein).

Another 9/10

"What's your crime?"

"Stampeding cattle."

"That's not much of a crime"

"Through the Vatican?"

"Kinky...."

The scenes in the Governor's Office killed me the most.

Very likely, but I'm still highly anticipating both films, though for different reasons. Either way it's going to be an awesome day.

Don't really have anything pinned down for sure yet. I'm really going to have to wait until I can see the showtimes that week, and figure out which theaters we'll be visiting. Especially considering it's over 4 hours travel time each way, we're not going to have a whole lot of time to sightsee too much. But depending on what part of town we end up in, we'll probably find a cool spot to eat, and find something cool to check out around there before/between shows.
