A Hard Day's Night (1964) Probably the best rock movie ever, the other option being Woodstock.

I don't really care for the Beatles yet I somehow enjoyed this a lot.

So when judging a movie one should check first what the director said about it and conform?

I think you have something of a valid point, but all I see this meaning is that it can be reasonably interpreted as such. Jenkins is hardly the first to have done so.

No, not at all. Obviously a director's intentions do not always run parallel with audience interpretation. What I'm saying, more overly, is that if Jenkin's can find the director's intent on his viewing of X-Men it's just as valid as seeing the film as nothing more than a bloated action flick. Personally, I've never seen it as more than such. Of course I also haven't seen it in years nor do I intend to.

Deliverance (1972) One of the great movies of the '70's. 8\10

Brides of Fu Manchu (1966) Resurrectibg this character in the 60's could have make sense only if  they injected the whole business with a big dose of irony and sex. Here they just made an archaelogical operation and the whole affair doesn't work. Rather dull, longish and boring, noa apparent merit. 3\10

Two Rode Together - 8/10 - In spite of the pseudo-happy ending and a heavy dose of humor, this is probably John Ford's darkest Western. It covers much of the same ground as The Searchers but does so in a much more jaundiced and cynical light: The Searchers's biggest unanswered question - did Debbie really want to be rescued? - is given a great deal of analysis, and if you can get past the bumptious bits with Andy Devine and Ken Curtis it's a remarkably negative film. James Stewart's character is completely greedy and amoral, a nice against-type characterization, and he has wonderful camraderie with Richard Widmark. An underrated gem, not Ford's best work but certainly not deserving of its dismal reputation.

The Bat (1959) Based on a famous novel I haven't read (and won't ever now that I have watched this version) this is one of those mysteries all based on the final revelation of the murderer whom, if you are a mystery lover, you'll be able to guess at about a third of the plot. Agnes Moorehead's performance is mediocre though Price is brilliant as usual. A pity because the movie had a good start but after Price's first scene it becomes boring. 5\10.

Heat (1995) It seems like this kind of robbers have a family, do their holdups in the same place they live in and won't let up even when the heat's on them. But what doesn't work is particularly the private vicissitudes of the cop Pacino: one couldn't care less about them and they are bogus. Still the plot keeps you interested almost all the time (160 minutes!) and  Val Kilmer's final scene is good. The finale woulld have made more sense with De Niro vanishing after having been intercepted by Pacino. 7\10

Kiss the Girls (2004) Run of the mill serial-killer thriller with no special new plot turns. But Freeman gives it watchability. 7\10

Circus of Fear (1966) Another whodunit based exclusively on who is the culprit. I give it 3\10 only because of Margaret Lee's presence, always in leotard.
