You get to know a lot by butchering meat. We're made up of the same things.

Flesh and blood. Tissue. Organs.

I love to work with pigs. The nearest thing in nature to the flesh of a man, is the flesh a pig.

I know your works. You are neither cold nor hot. So because you are lukewarm, I will spew you out of my mouth. You can build your filthy world without me. I took the father. Now I'll take the son. You tell young Vallon I'm gonna paint Paradise Square with his blood. Two coats. I'll festoon my bedchamber with his guts. As for you, Mr. Tammany-fucking-Hall, you come down to the Points again, and you'll be dispatched by my own hand. Get back to your celebration and let me eat in peace.

If Bill the Butcher and Daniel Day Lewis met in real life they wouldn't even know one another. That's how bad ass DDL is in that movie.

When you kill a king, you don't stab him in the dark. You kill him where the entire court can watch him die.

I watched Across the Universe twice last night. After watching all the behind scenes stuff that came with the dvd really made watching the film even more engrossing and I enjoyed it even more. Each time I watch it I pick up on things I've missed before. It's really a brilliant piece of work. Julie Taybor did a great job.

The Great Escape

One of my favorite films of all time; tragic, yet hilarious. It's hard to believe that they were able to keep this thin plot interesting for nearly 3 hours, but there it is. Fantastic acting, likable characters...it almost makes WWII seem fun.

9/10

Superbad 5/10

Can somebody please tell me what the hell was so funny about this movie? It got all these rave reviews! It seems like a movie that only teenage boys or former nerdy teenage boys might like. Even my husband thought the movie was pretty awful. So, what gives? Why the good reviews on this dumb movie?

The Bourne Ultimatum- 9/10

These movies are really intense and the 3rd in the trilogy didn't disappoint. I didn't even want to get up to go the bathroom, because I didn't wanna miss anything. Matt Damon is very badass in these. I usually don't think of him in that way, but he's great in this role. 2 hours fly by watching this. Great movie!

BECUZ THEY SAY TEH BAD WORDS

But seriously, as a teenage boy, I didn't like it that much either. The pacing was terrible, especially in the middle where the movie came to a screeching halt, and the forced emotion at the end didn't work, especially since it's not that easy to actually like the characters personally. But it was a funny movie IMO, just not the classic so many make it out to be.

The total cop-out ending of The Bourne Ultimatum really hurt it for me. Up until the final 20 minutes or so though, I liked it a lot.

Ryan's Daughter illustrates what happens when the material doesn't support the epic treatment, and while A Passage to India is a slight improvement, it doesn't really scale the heights of the others.

I appreciate Summertime very much as a post-epic Lean exercise in restraint, and it's one of Katharine Hepburn's greatest performances. Shows that he was still capable of something smaller, but apparently he just couldn't stick with it.
It wasn't really meant as a complaint, more of a personal preference. If a man can create such magnificent epics as Lean could then I'm all for it, I'm just glad that there's a heap of smaller films that he made beforehand for me to discover. Never heard of Summertime though, I'll look into it.

I'm surprised you didn't like Hannah as it's widely regarded as one of his best scripts. Personally I prefer Crimes & Misdemeanors; have you seen that one? Another great blend of drama and comedy with some very dark moral questions at play. Husbands and Wives is a pretty rough film to watch as it virtually mirrored Woody's own split with Mia Farrow. That an artist would put himself up on the screen like that, however much of it was intentional, is amazing. Brutal, unsettling film. Judy Davis is great.
I came across as too harsh on Hannah..., I just preferred Husbands and Wives so much more. I didn't really have his private life in mind whilst watching it, although in retrospect it does make the final scenes very hard to think about. I've seen Crimes and Misdemenours and you're right that it throws up some great moral questions. Love the resolution.

On a Woody-related note, I also saw Small Time Crooks and Manhattan Murder Mystery over Christmas, both laugh out loud stuff and both with a great central female performance

I really need to see the rest of the Doinel films. I think I've only seen 400 Blows, and I've toyed with ordering the Criterion set. Jules and Jim is one of my all-time faves. I'd also like to see Truffaut's black and white homage to film noir, Confidentially Yours.
Jules et Jim is tremendous. As for the Doinel films, they're well worth watching. There's a lighter tone in the subsequent films than in The 400 Blows but they still deal with some painful themes and scenes. And that film noir homage sounds interesting.

Well, we're not progressing nearly as fast through our Bond-a-thon as NSW is (3 of us are watching about 1 a week), but I'll give an updated ranking and rating of the first 5 films, having just seen You Only Live Twice tonight.

1. From Russia With Love - 9
2. Goldfinger - 7.5
3. Dr. No - 6.5
4. Thunderball - 6
5. You Only Live Twice - 3

You Only Live Twice was quite the piece of shit. Completely nonsensical, and looked like it could have been made by the drop-out AV kids from my high school. Terrible.

I agree with that order, though, my rankings might vary slightly. I think I'd put more distance between the first 3 and Thunderball.

I finished the Man with the Golden Gun last night. I liked Live and Let Die a little better, but, enjoyed Saruman playing a hitman. I am sure I'll get shit for this, but, I just do not think Connery was that much better than Moore, if at all. Though, the craptastic Moore films are still to come.
