Kubrick films that I don't think are very, very, very good. Or even very good:

1. Lolita (his absolute worst and nearly mockery of a beautiful novel IMO)
2. Full Metal Jacket (1/3 good movie, 2/3 MEH with various great scenes)
3. Killer's Kiss (I'm not even sure if this counts anyway, but it's a decent debut)

I'm psyched to watch Capricorn, Pandora and the Flying Dutchman (Kino's just put out a blu ray of this), The Vikings and Sons and Lovers.

#9) Full Metal Jacket (I need to watch it again, it's been a long time)
#10) Barry Lyndon (Need to rewatch it too)
#11) Spartacus
#12) Killer's Kiss

Not one single film that's not very very very good, except for Killer's Kiss, which is okay. But it's his first too, so...
Counterpoint:

1. 2001: A Space Odyssey
2. Dr. Strangelove...
3. Eyes Wide Shut
4. Barry Lyndon
5. Paths of Glory
6. Lolita
7. The Shining
8. Full Metal Jacket
9. A Clockwork Orange

I watched Clockwork again a few days ago for my Screening Science class and was so thoroughly frustrated with it that I'm on the fence of whether I like it or not.

I love Lolita. One of it's scenes is one thing I mention when people wanna know why I want to be a director. But yeah, several people said that already.
Full Metal Jacket is kinda of a blur in my memories, but I rememeber wacthing it and feeling that it was so fresh when compared to other war films I had seen up to that point. Especially Platoon. Will watch it again asap though.
Yeah, Killer's Kiss is nice, but you can't say based on it that it's from one of the greatest directors of all time. (To me, the greatest)

Hey, someone who ranks Eyes Wide as high as me, nice!
And oh, I can't stop loving A Clockwork Orange, even if it's not SO up there as it was when I watched it for the first time.
Also, forgot to mention... 2001 is tied with Goodfellas as the best film ever made, to me.

I think you'll find around these parts, that most people rank EWS as high as you.

You should watch Duel, it's awesome.
And I'm definitely not going to find someone who likes Amistad as much as me I think.

Yeah, I'll catch up to Duel at some point. I had a very hard time sitting through Amistad... it's pretty garbage.

I wouldn't even discuss it 'cause I'm used to this film being bashed. It's kinda like my Around the Sun in films. But oh well, I think it's awesome. Need to watch it again too though.
