Well, sometimes a hyped up movie can be a huge disappointment, but I thought The Good the Bad and the Ugly was awesome and Picnic at Hanging Rock is one of the creepiest movies I've ever seen.
I also really liked Eternal Sunshine, but not at first. At first it just seems like your standard boring romance movie, but then it gets trippy.
There's a lot on your list that I haven't seen either. I love Kurosawa but I have yet to see Hidden Fortress or Ikiru.
Oooh, Diabolique! Another wonderfully creepy movie.
And who could hate The Goonies? Well, you might. I'd be curious to hear your opinion on it!

Thanks! I'm gonna add most of the movies to my Netflix list. Have you seen El Dorado yet?

This'll be interesting.

Curious questions: first off, you seen Mel Brooks' comedy movies? Blazing Saddles, Spaceballs, all really good ones. I might review "Saddles".

Oh, and, mind helping me write a review for "This is Spinal Tap"? I figure I'd ask the man with the rating system what goes up to...you guessed it... ELEVEN!

I love Mel Brooks' movies! I've seen The Producers, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs, and History of the World!

I actually never noticed how the 11-star rating system could be used as a reference for Spinal Tap. How could I help? You want me to write the review?

J.R. Spumkin said...

Would you write it?

At the moment, I'm working on Kurdt's Slayer DVD review and I'm also working on "Blazing Saddles"!

Busy week.

I would write it, I would. But not for a while.

You could write a more entertaining review than I could (I can't bare to reveal plots in a review).
