That's about what I thought of it. Pretty to look at, but boring otherwise.

If it's anything like Tess, which my wife and I walked out of at intermission, I'm so not there.

It reminded me of some prints I used to have up in my dorm room. About as static, too.

Is there a link to the resultant list?

(I remember The Forum 100 back when we were on NYTimes.com)

I don't have much to say here. I just wanted to see my name come up in all seven active film forums at once. Seagull is contagious.

I did promise to do my top 200 films of all time sometime and I know you all breathlessly await it, since my taste is, of course, impeccable. I've been watching a lot of pre-code films for that forum, and, although I like a lot of them, I also have caveats, such as, am I praising this film because it was good at the time or is it genuinely one of the greatest films of all time? For instance, The Divorcee and The Broadway Melody are both very interesting for historical reasons, both were deservingly praised at the time, and both are very badly dated. Frankenstein, Dinner at Eight, King Kong Queen Christina and Trouble in Paradise have stood the test of time very well, and I'd add Scarface and Twentieth Century to that collection. But what of films like A Free Soul and Five Star Final, not to mention The Big House and I'm No Angel?

Well, the inclusion of Laura Croft and A Man and A Woman, of the movies I've seen, is a puzzling inclusion of crap in those lists.

I think Laura Croft was a seminal movie in my liking angelina jolie.

Man and a woman was more because i wanted a patrice leconte film in, I think his work after he grew to be a reaally old man is better than the two films he did when he was younger, but what's not to like about aman and a woman (aside from the violent reaction maranzo seems to have to films he dislikes, even worthy ones like se7en )?
