Well for me it's a tight race between that and the Toy Stories. Conceding that I haven't seen Wall-E, I don't think they've made anything truly great since Finding Nemo - maybe the first half of The Incredibles.
I haven't seen Cars and frankly I don't have any great urge to, but Ratatouille was a good (albeit not great) one and I guess I've expressed my satisfaction with Wall-E. For me it's the only true rival for Finding Nemo.

The Illusionist (2006) - 6/10
Good but indefferent.

Cars was okay. I didn't much care for Ratatouille though.

To me, Wall-E's first half is an absolute masterpiece. After that, it all becomes much more conventional with very regular well-done-but-seen-over-thousands-times action and carrying a politically correct message. However, once again, the first half was amazing, great, old-school, poetic, without dialogue.

2001: A Space Odyssey - 8/10 - Yes, I finally saw it. A remarkable film on a purely technical level. I don't think there is a more visually gorgeous film in existence, and the music and soundscape were fascinating throughout. However, I will make the complaint that the movie is cold and uninvolving; interesting certainly, but uninvolving. None of the characters except Hal develop anything resembling a personality, the story is virtually non-existant and I'm not sure what to make of the film's message. The fact that Kubrick was able to stretch out two and a half hours of very thin characters and narrative into a breath-taking experience is surely to his credit, and at least it didn't bore me like Barry Lyndon.

The Love Bug - 6/10 - Wow, this was one of favorites as a kid and TCM's having a marathon of these movies tonight! Really goofy but provided some nostalgic fun. Might even watch the other ones.

I agree about 2001.


Raging Bull - 8/10

Third viewing. First time a got involved too.
What to say about this movie that hasn't already been said thousands times? The reason why I don't give it a 10 out of 10 is that... the main character isn't interesting at all. It took me three viewings to get a bit involved in what was going on in the "Did you fuck my wife?" scenes. So great movie, one of the best done ever, but the themes are too far from me.

Herbie Rides Again - 4/10 - Okay, nostalgia over. The fun part was Keenan Wynn's nightmare sequence, otherwise pretty dumb.

I find that with repeated viewings 2001 has less and less to offer. I guess I've seen it about a dozen times--the visuals and the music are the big draws. The plotlessness has never bothered me: it's essentially a documentary about an alternative future, although one that grows more irrelevant all the time. My most recent viewing of it was in 70mm at the Cinerama in Seattle. Afterwards I decided, There's no reason to watch this ever again.

Barry Lyndon--great visuals and music again--operates at least as a commentary on Thackeray's novel, and Thackeray is an artist who for me grows more interesting with time.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

To be fair, I'd be willing to watch Barry Lyndon again to see if I enjoy it more. There are at least some things about it that I admire and it's possible repeat viewings might enhance the experience. I'm not sure how hasty I'd be to rewatch 2001 though.

Play It to the Bone (1999) - 3.76/10

Crap with a couple of funny moments, which means crap.

12 Angry Men . I finally saw the dvd sfter having watched it 3-4 times dubbed. It has some defects (the sometime waving of the blue, red and white, basically; also some performance, like Sweeney's) but I think that, apart from being a great thriller (with all the limitations of a thriller) is effective as few (if there are any) Hollywood movies in depicting human behaviour. The Oscar not given to Cobb (his final falling apart moved me now that I heard it in english) is an even more shameful fact than the one not given to Tuco, as here there were not problems with the nationality of the movie. Warden is just as huge.  10\10

Adventureland - 8/10 - I think I had the exact opposite of FC's reaction to the film. I went in with questionable expectations and was rewarded with a funny, heart-warming and very real film. And yes, Kristen Stewart is fucking hot.
