Oh come on Stanton, they even published a book apparently containing nothing but his sardonic one-liners:

Ha ha ok. But for me he is of course one of the reasons why MM is so great, but only one amongst 2 dozens.

Fedora (1978) - 4/10. 1080p. This bad Billy Wilder film is now available in a very good Blu-ray transfer. The reason the film is so bad is that it has an incredible flaw: the first half of the film presents matters one way, then in the second half reveals that our understanding about the first half was wrong. Not once, but twenty times. The explanation goes on and on and on. Still, there are pleasures: Bill Holden, Marthe Keller, Jose Ferrer (with an earring!). Bit parts are done by old friends: Mario Adorf (!) as a Greek hotel manager; Gottried John (!!) as a chauffeur with a punch; Stephen Collins (!!!) as the young Holden (!!!!); Henry Fonda as the President of the Academy; and Michael York "as himself." There are two fag jokes (three if you count Michael York).

Man, I'm falling behind.

Carrie - 8/10 - Entertaining.

Carrie (2013) - 3/10 - Wretched.

The Birds - 8/10 - Rewatch.

The Strangers - 3/10
Some shitty jump-scare movie that for some reason college girls think is scary and 'deep' lol.

Boyhood - 10/10
Second viewing. It's probably a bit short of a true 10, but I'll round up just for kicks. The flaws are still there (two alcoholic step dads, the photographer cliche) but the rest of the movie is just so fucking perfect.

A History of Violence - 8/10
Really really good movie. Liked it a lot.

The King of Comedy - 9/10
Gets better with age. One of Scorsese's best and most unique movies.

I saw this once (like 5 years ago, on a laptop) and didn't like it all that much. I LOVED Eastern Promises.

You forgot one of the flaws: the kid only ever has teenage models for girlfriends. Yeah, just like in real life.

L'ours (1988) - 6.5 to 7/10

I'm usually a complete sucker for this type of movies yet this movie didn't suck me in. It must have been very hard to film some of the scenes with the animals. Still, something seems missing.

I think it aged. Or I aged. Probably both.

Nightcrawler (2014) - 10/10. If Travis Bickle and Network's Diana Christensen conceived a child, that rough beast, slouching toward Hollywood to be born, would be Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal), the amoral hero of Nightcrawler. Lou, when we first meet him, makes his living selling copper wire, pieces of chain-link fence, and manhole covers. One night on the highway, however, he comes on the scene of a terrible accident and witnesses first-hand two stringers for local news videoing the carnage. Suddenly Lou has a new industry to crash. The barriers to entry, though, are high; but Lou, for his part, is indomitable: he has the talent, the drive, the ruthlessness to succeed. With some mentoring by a TV station producer (Rene Russo), he is soon beating out his chief competitor (Bill Paxton). And when a crime/accident scene doesn't have all the cinematic values it should, Lou does not scruple to re-stage it. Things escalate nicely from there. This is one of those rare films that begins strong, then just keeps getting better and better. Darkly funny, this is a contender for American film of the year.

Good news! I'm expecting a lot from this one.

You're gonna love it: the lead character is a psycho who loves composing nothing but money shots. Nothing deters him. He is a lion on a savannah populated by jackals.

But, on the positive side, us as viewers get to appreciate teenage model girlfriends. (if they're not 18 I take that back...but I imagine they're all at least around 25)

A Scanner Darkly - 7/10
Could be higher on a repeat viewing, really fascinating sci-fi noir drug drama adaptation but it's easy to get lost in the plot. I personally really don't like the rotoscope animation, and think that it's more distracting to the storytelling than stylistic but it's a huuuge fucking step up from Waking Life (at least in narrative). Linklater is one of the most talented and interesting filmmakers around, it's a shame he doesn't get more recognized.

La grande bellezza (The Great Beauty) (2013) great quasi nostalgic film reminds one of the great Italian films of the 50s 9/10

I liked it too. Apparently, though, it's not Roman enough to suit titoli.
