The rivalry holds TQM together just enough for me. It's too long though.

Samurai I (1954) 3/6

this reminded me a lot of an old western in the first half. the colors, music and story are all very similar. the movie starts to feel different once the more japanese themes come through. overall I didnt care a whole lot for it. there was very little action and a fair share of bad acting. I really only wanted to see this movie because of Mifune. at the end however, the story does seem like it could turn a bit more interesting in the sequels of this trilogy. so I hope.

Well, yeah. The first movie is mostly set-up. There's quite a bit of action in the second one, and a climactic duel in the third.

If I spared as much time as you do, I'd have 248 fewer posts! :D

Believe me, it does. II and III are vastly superior to the mediocre first.

I only saw the first, which simply wasn't good at all.

A History of Violence - 7-8/10 - Liked most of the film very well, but I didn't care for the ending. Incidentally I got into a dust-up with my brother today and my eye is swollen and bleeding. :o

Presumably, Tim got it even worse. Idle youths! Why don't you guys get summer jobs?

I liked AHoV, although it seemed like there was something missing in the story. And Ed Harris bowed out too soon.

The movie had been fairly plausible up to the final showdown with William Hurt, but Viggo shooting and beating his way through five well-armed thugs in a closed room with nary a scratch (well, okay, his hand looked pretty rough) is a bit hard to take. If it were a typical Hollywood action movie it would be acceptable, but the movie had been careful to be a real-world thriller/character study up to that point, and then Viggo goes all James Bond on us with magical bullet dodging and stealth neck-breaking skills. And then it ends on a really odd and unsatisfying note; presumably Tom will be able to restart his old mundane life? If ambiguity was intended in that scene it didn't come across well. Still, it was a good/almost great movie for 3/4's of its length, can't be too critical I guess...

My summer job plans have faltered again this year, but Tim is regaining his old lifeguarding position next month. I'm a wimp so I doubt there's much I chance I could cause him any real harm.

The Sheltering Sky (1990) WOW probably the 3rd time I've watched this, I just get blown away by the eye candy, a feast for the eyes, Debra Winger,  John Malkovich , Campbell Scott,  Jill Bennett, and Timothy Spall, a film who's themes are melancholly and despair. 9/10

Bernardo Bertolucci should take a stab at reviving the Euro/Spaghetti Western.

Nosferatu - 7.5/10
Which one?

Frankenstein (1931) - 6.5/10
Not at all scary but pretty funny. I don't mean campy, I mean really honestly funny. OK, there's some camp, too...
