Okay... I need to get this out of my system.

What the [curse word]? You [homophobic slur]s haven't seen [film from list] and you didn't even like [name of other film from list]? No wonder you like [superhero film] and [name of Christopher Nolan movie]. Educate yourselves about [list of directors] before you even post on this board one more time. This was supposed to be a place of love and comfort.[/list][/color]

Here, let me make one for you...

What the hell?  You're such a queer, you haven't even seen Raging Bull and you didn't even like It's a Wonderful Life?  No wonder you like Iron Man and Memento.  Educate yourself about Frank Capra, Charlie Chaplin, John Huston, and George Stevens before you even post on this board one more time.  This was supposed to be a place of love and comfort.

What is this?  MadLibs?

Potentially.
Goodbye!

Let me give this a try.

What the fuck, you fucking fucks? You faggots haven't even seen Sunset Boulevard and you didn't even like Star Wars or The Shawshank Redemption? No wonder you like Avengers 2 and The Dark Knight. Educate yourself about smart filmmakers like Orson Welles and Billy Wilder (and not Hack Snyder) before you even post on this board one more time. This was supposed to be a place of love and comfort.
Everything is terrible.

13. Star Wars: 5/10

Going to assume this is a typo.
Nope, New Hope really doesn't hold up at all when judged on its own merit and not as an important piece of cinematic history.

You gave Batman v Superman a higher score than the original Star Wars... wow... going to have to take a while to wrap my head around this one.

No, shut up Diego. Bring up that shitty Snyder film on this board and I guarantee you'll get struck by lightning. Positive thoughts. Lawrence of Arabia. AFI's Top 100. Bridge on the River Kwai.

Just remember that I always have the nuclear option... the "delete post" button.

Anyway, Cutler, I see you share my enjoyment of Ben-Hur. And you haven't seen The Bridge on the River Kwai? Get on that.

Delete a Benoit Bomb and you lose Cutler for good.  And without Cutler, this site will slowly die out.  After all, I'm the only person who posts whenever he's online.

This site is already dying out. We've lost four of the original six Trollfighters, and exchanged them for what? Some lurker with an Audrey Hepburn profile picture and a guy from Chile. Anyway, I don't negotiate with terrorists. So come on. You're the one who always talks about being tired of superhero movie discussions. You should welcome this board with open arms.

OK, I haven't seen all that many from here. Nevertheless, I'm really surprised to be the only person on here who's seen High Noon. That film is currently a 10/10 and at the top of my list.

I'll happily do another film exchange if you're willing.

You don't have to watch the movie tonight. You could always pull a Nyland and wait 1000 days... and then still not watch it.

So after many years of wanting to see it, I finally sat down and watched Raging Bull. I'm going to have to think about this one for a while... I definitely liked it, but I don't know if it was "best of all time" material. De Niro and Pesci were, of course, excellent. Some of their dialogue felt like it might have been ad-libbed, but I'm not sure (I don't know if Scorsese's the type of director to let that fly). Still though, Scorsese's best? I really don't know. Very few sympathetic characters. I appreciate the quality of the filmmaking-- a lot of the camerawork felt very ahead of its time-- but the subject matter just doesn't quite live up to it.

Holding off on a score.

Also, I have now officially seen every movie in the AFI top ten! Slow and steady wins the race, boys.

Raging Bull works better than other Scorsese features because it doesn't display its unsympathetic characters as quirky.  Let's be real here.  Has Scorsese even made a film about sympathetic characters?  Sure, maybe Rupert Pupkin or Gangs of New York,but still, a majority of his characters are very cruel people.  At least Raging Bull passes them off as complete assholes.

I did notice this about the movie... it never has that bit of levity to it that movies like Casino or Goodfellas have. I laughed a couple times at Pesci's witty retorts, but mostly to keep myself from getting depressed. But at that point, I have to ask the obvious question... why is the story even being told? Why should I care about these repugnant people? I suppose comparing it to other boxing movies isn't really fair, but it's quite striking how little I felt for the people on screen. Maybe some sympathy... but that's about it.

I suppose it comes down to whether or not it's my kind of movie. And I do tend to prefer films that make me feel emotionally connected with the people on screen. Given the kind of movies I call my favorites (Inside Out, Cinema Paradiso), I guess it's no surprise that I didn't full-out love this one.

Still though, I'm still impressed by the camerawork and direction. I would equate this with Citizen Kane in terms of how advanced the cinematography was for its time.

Toy Story (5/10)


Needs a rewatch since I haven't seen it since I was like 8, but I remember being underwhelmed with it.  Don't put too much stock into the rating until I see it again.
