fun story
Is there a story here? What's the conflict? Who is the antagonist? Just asking. An unconventional narrative, to be sure. But the (deliberate) failure to follow traditional formulas makes it somewhat off-putting. When I rewatch Blimp it is for Deborah Kerr, the art direction, the Technicolor . . . not the story. Not that that's a bad thing--lets have variety in our cinema, by all means. But my favorite films are always going to be those with a strong story line.

Because it's huge in every department, and as a whole.

A fantastic movie, a Sci-Fi classic, a milestone.

Rudger Hauer is quite remarkable, easily outshining Ford.  That and two or three good scenes does not make it a "milestone."

American Psycho 9/10

Fantastic Afro

The 80s and Reaganism were all just a dream of a homicidal but cowardly yuppie.  Oh, and I know who shot JR.   Cheesy

It sure doesn't.

Especially if you don't know what the word means.

Okay smart guy, then you tell me what makes a flashy but empty ripoff of Metropolis a milestone.

Inglourious Basterds - 9/10. Not quite as funny as Crank 2, but close.

War and Peace (1956) - 5/10 - The Battle of Borodino and Napoleon's retreat from Moscow are epic cinema at its best (not surprising from a King Vidor film); the art direction is gorgeous; Nino Rota's score is wonderful, though far from his best work; Audrey Hepburn is at her charming, beautiful best (her first appearance is one of the most radiant moments of her career). Everything else about this film is lousy; the written-by-committee script reduces the Tolstoy into a superficial soap opera, the movie plods like nobody's business, and the casting! Henry Fonda as Pierre is perhaps the grossest case of miscasting in film history, arguably surpassing even Alec Guinness in A Passage to India, convincing as neither a Russian nor the presumably young man he's meant to be. Mel Ferrer is his usual handsome but stiff self, John Mills is on hand to make a nuisance of himself, Vittorio Gassman is woodenness personified, and the rest of the cast is hopelessly non-descript; Hepburn and Herbert Lom's perfect portrayal of Napoleon are the only cast members to come off well. Handsomely mounted bore would be a decent summary of the whole mess; some nice bits but ultimately not worth the effort.

Which is why everyone prefers Sergei Bondarchuk's version (1966-68).

If that movie were on TCM last week and starred Audrey Hepburn I might well have watched it instead. Cheesy
