Lol, I'm not  a Spielberg fan per se, he's pretty hit or miss.

The 3 hours version puts more emphasis on Toto's love for Elena than his love for movies. His love for movies is the greater, more touching part of the film while his love for Elena is too ridiculously sappy. I like a good romance film but it doesn't work in the case of the long Cinema Paradiso.

I haven't seen the long one in a while, maybe I'll watch it before school starts on Wednesday.

Speaking of Spielberg I'm seeing Raiders in theater tomorrow.

I can't really disagree but he sacrifices, with the aid of the blind projection guy, his love for Elena for his passion for the cinema. The love story is incredibly sappy but it works for me, I bought every second of it. I love sappy Italian movies, they're wonderful. Life is Beautiful is another one. I'm normally pretty ruthless but the Italians control my emotions like a puppetmaster.

If anyone can recommend me some more incredibly sappy Italian movies, I would be much obliged.

Raiders would be fun on the big screen, lucky you. Just don't turn into Burdick.

Bull. His love for Elena was more powerful than his love of movies. Movies was a passion of his and yes, he loved them. However, you can't replace the love of your life with anything else. Sometimes it comes around only once in your life, sometimes never. It's a gift to find the love of your life and Toto found his. It was very tragic that he never seen her again. The film is about much more than just the love of movies.

Are you talking about me? haha. I think I already found the love of my life. Actually, I thought I have numerous times but there's one special one for me.

On the Waterfront - I had seen this a couple of times in my teens, dubbed. A great actors competition. Not only Brando (and Steiger) but all the rest: EMS, Malden, Cobb (how I like the final fight!).  Also a good thriller were it not for the marching band finale. I like the way it starts and develops. 8\10. 

Viva Zapata - Also this seen in my teens and not ever since. A surprise. Agree with McCain: better than On the Waterfront. The most impressive sequence is when Zapata is made a prisoner and on the way to prison you start hearing a tune which could have been very weel composed by the Maestro. 9\10

I agree pretty much with what you have to say about On the Waterfront; more than anything else, it's the acting that makes it click. I'd give it a 9 instead of an 8, but otherwise I agree wholeheartedly. Afro

Im not much of a vampire fan but this is my favorite vampire movie with From Dusk Till Dawn being 2nd and I Am Legend being just stupid and nowhere near these two.

Hostel: Part 2- 9/10

Once Upon a Time in the West (1968)

Brilliant. Timeless. Masterful. The greatest film ever made? I think so.

The Mission (1986) - 6.5/10
I can't understand how they could make the real jungle feel so much like a studio. Huh

Perkele! Kuvia Suomesta (1971) - 8.5/10
This should be viewed to every tourist coming to Finland because it is the most honest presentation of the country ever. Sure the film is unashamedly leftist propaganda but if you can see through that, there's a naked truth inside. Of course Finland of 2008 is very different from Finland of 1971 but the film is a look into the past as well as it is a look into the very nature of Finns. (The title was translated Fuck Off! - Images of Finland but there's no way to translate the most powerful curseword in the world satisfyingly Cheesy)
