Sympathy for the Devil (1968) - 4/10
Pretentious pile of shit and still interesting on some level. Awefully dated but it has a wacky sixties feel to it. Seeing the song coming together is interesting though I don't know to what extent the studio scenes were staged. I have yet to see an enjoyable Godard movie, but I know neither this nor First Name: Carmen are high on anybody's recommendation list :P

Where Eagles Dare - 8/10 - Basically Guns of Navarone 2.0 (let's ignore the POS that is Force 10 From Navarone if we can :D) set in the Alps, with Richard Burton, Clint Eastwood and an even more outlandish and implausible plot than its predecessor. The story gets so ridiculous that at one point, a character actually yells out "THIS IS PREPOSTEROUS!" ;D Still, it's outlandish in a fun way, both Burton and Eastwood are in top form (and surprisingly don't try and hog the spotlight), and the action is fabulous.

Phantom of the Opera (2004): 6/10
Watched this as a favor for a freind as well as to confirm what i think of andrew llyodd webber musicals. The fact is: I dislike ALW musicals, period. some of them are good ideas with a terrible plodding script (jesus christ superstar) while others are jsut terrible ideas to begin with (cats, starlight express). This one for the most part was a good idea with good opening and a great ending but not much in between. I find myself enjoying only 2 songs, the title song,  "point of no return" as well as everything that procedes it. Overall it isn't terrible, i just don't see what all the fuss is about this. Maybe there's something in the stage production that this adaptation just doesn't have  :-\

Behold a Pale Horse (1964)  7/10  Came across this last week on TCM but was a little wary of a movie starring Gregory Peck, Anthony Quinn and Omar Sharif I'd never heard of.  For a movie where nothing much happens for most of the two-hour runtime, I enjoyed it.  Peck is Manuel Artiguez, a Spanish bandit living in exile in France 20 yrs after the Spanish Civil War, Quinn is the police chief who wants to get his hands on him, and Sharif is the priest who unwillingly gets mixed up in the situation.  Good but not great. O0

Frenzy - 9/10 - Provisional rating, but I thought it was fabulous. My second favorite Hitchcock after Rope.

What do you see in it, just the black humor? I admit that there are scenes I like, but overall for me it's middling Hitchcock. Jon Finch, so good elsewhere, is annoying here.

My taste in Hitchcock is decidedly unorthodox, in case you haven't noticed. My top three as of now is Rope, Frenzy and Marnie, and Vertigo is pretty low on the list.

I take it you have no interest in opera, then.

The American President - 9/10 - Basically a feature-length pilot for The West Wing, which for me is a very, very good thing. A bit too cutesy at times but on the whole a fabulous movie. O0
