Loved this.
What did you think of the ending? Iíve seen some people criticize it for being a bit more conventional than the first two acts but I thought it was executed very well.

I suppose there were scenes he would have found to be ďneedlesslyĒ mean spirited...

Flounder literally has no sense of humor whatsoever.
All his progressivism and time spent pirating films is eating away at his brain...

jk donít take this seriously john...

I shall see this film this evening. Afterward I might be able to atone for all the Disney movies Iíve seen in theaters this year.

I saw this tonight. Ran into a lot of old friends at the theater, so we all watched it together. It was exactly what I wanted.

Danny, I will post obnoxious shit in this thread until you engage me in conversation. That's right, folks-- we're meeting our daily post quota one way or another.

Dude - I'm down...

The French Connection: 8/10

My #5 all-time movie

Getting to see this on the big screen was a very cool experience.

Wow that's pretty awesome.  I never got to do that.  Seeing Sunset Boulevard on the big screen a couple weeks ago was pretty cool.  I love it when they release old movies on the big screen.  Last year we got to see Close Encounters in RPX.
Seeing older movies on a big screen is awesome; my local theater got North by Northwest like two years ago which is still one of my best theater-going experiences.

I'd love to see some Hitchc0ck on the big screen.  We saw Vertigo 2 years ago (I think it was 2 years ago) and it was pretty cool, even though that's not one of my favorite Hitchc0ck films.  If we could get some Kubrick on there, I'd go nuts.
I really like Vertigo, sounds like an awesome experience. I missed seeing Lawrence of Arabia when it came to our theater like my sophomore year of high school, still really regret that one.

This was my Vertigo review from a couple of years before - it's my #5 overall Hitchc0ck film:

Vertigo (1958)
   
I have just begun rewatching Hitchcock films - it's been over 20 years since I have viewed them. So, it's as close to watching these movies for the first time that one can really get. I decided to start with Vertigo, which was one of my favorite Hitchcock movies growing up.

While this is indubitably a very good movie, upon a re-watch, it is a bit overrated. When watching older movies, I really try to put myself back in that time frame - so you will rarely see me bitch about "special effects not being up to par" or stuff like that. The plot is beautifully crafted with excellent twists and groundbreaking camera work. Nowadays, we are always looking for "the twist", so fooling the audience is much more difficult. But, with Hitchcock, it was an art form more than it was just a standard movie device. And, there was nobody better at it. James Stewart was magnificent as usual, and the final 90 minutes clipped along pretty well. The ending was great and really struck home the point of, "the more obsessed you get the more likely you will lose the object of your obsession".

Now, that being said, there were 2 main issues I had with this movie. 1) The first 40 minutes of this movie was slllooowwwww. Now, I'm not someone who needs constant action - far from it. I love the build up in The Exorcist as well as the first LOTR movie. But there was stuff going on in those movies. This was literally driving and following for 40 minutes - easily could have been cropped in half to make the movie more concise. 2) While I love James Stewart, he was just a little bit too old for this particular role. Kim Novak appeared to be about half his age, and it made their love story just a tiny bit awkward for me. When she wakes up in his bed naked, it just felt a little creepy.

These were legitimate issues for me that drop the movie from "all time great" discussion. It is a very good movie and I would highly recommend re-watching if it's been a while. However, I would suggest tempering your expectations going in.

Grade = 8.0/10

Yo, The Departed is fucking amazing, hadn't seen it in a while and it's even better than I remembered.

This was great.  Probably only slightly inferior to the first.
