That's pretty funny. Thanks for the link.
|Rating the Films: Paul Thomas Anderson||
I think Hard Eight is an amazing film; truly outstanding filmmaking.
|Original and Remakes.||
I'd like to read Biskind's book; I've heard it's a page-turner.

That's a failing on my part; I haven't seen any of Mizoguchi's films. Tragic, I know.
|Rating the Films: M. Night Shyamalan||
I know a lot of people who feel the same way. I've mentioned before that he needs to either let someone else direct his next one, or direct someone else's material pretty soon here, just to change direction a bit.
|Rating the Films: Takeshi Kitano||
I actually like the first half; it's completely against exspectation (at least for me). I think the quietness of the front half is needed for the second half to not feel forced.

11. Crispin (watch out for those karate kicks, Letterman!).
|Paul Newman at 80||
Neat little article, though the last paragraph is out of left field.
#8. Roger Moore

I agree with most of these, and am especially pleased to see The Shining. I gotta say though, I don't like The Graduate. I know I'm in the minority on that one, but I think it's creepy rather than funny.
It's a likable film. I dug it as a re-tread of a familiar story with its own cultural insights/aspects; the main characters are all very good, especially the younger grifter. Worth watching.
Take care, lester.

I know the list is old, but...

That's a good point. And thankfully for the Jerseites, they are a New jersey team.
|Nifty New Netflix Tracker Report||
You finally convinced me. I've joined the tracking list, though I probably won't join the queue lists (since I think it's weird if people knew what movies I was renting).
