Thanks. Didn't know anything about it. I like a lot of Wes Anderson's stuff. Will check it out soon.

I like how I can tell it's a Wes Anderson movie on the strength of seeing one preview without the words "A Wes Anderson" film being anywhere near it.

Lost in Translation. Finally finished the entire film after nearly 5 years of procrastination.  :)

Saw Ted and Blade Runner today. Disappointed by both.

What exactly were you looking forward to with Ted? And what cut of Blade Runner did you see?

I had heard that Ted is hilarious. And it has Mila Kunis in it! But it's Seth McFarlane, so it was filled with his terrible comedy (including your fair share of self righteous religion-bashing).

I saw the director's cut of Blade Runner.

The only way to see Blade Runner is the Final Cut on Blu-Ray. Superb, it's Ridley's best film. That film is so multi-layered and deep that one viewing doesn't do it justice. It gets a little slow with the romance bit, but still love it.

BTW picked up these four tonight. Finally got Wire on DVD.



Raging Bull was $7.50
Taxi Driver was $10.00
Godfather Collection $30
Wire Season One $20

I had BB price match and two were on sale.

Awesome deals.

I desperately need Vertigo by Hitchcock on Blu-Ray. Universal is coming out with a Masterpiece collection of 14 of his films in October, but I hope to see it release individually. With both the restoration versions and not.

Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and The Godfather are all worthy of their acclaim. Disturbing movies that ring authentic on every level. I haven't seen The Wire, only a few brief pieces here and there. I may decide to give it a chance, but from a cursory glance it seems too cliched and spurious for my tastes. Perhaps it's because I grew up in the ATL and lived that lifestyle for so many years that I recognize the phoniness of it. But then again, I love The Sopranos, which I might think overplayed if I were Italian and grew up in New Jersey.

Dude, The Wire is the greatest TV show ever. It's not your typical crime show either. It's better than the Sopranos, and I loved the Sopranos. The first season is a little slow at first, there's just such an amazing level of detail in this show.

Just be warned it is a difficult show to follow.

OK, thanks. I'll give it a try some day. I trust your recommendations.

I felt the same when it came out... It should have been so much better. The script didn't live up to the premise. Bruce Campbell's commentary on the DVD is actually funnier than the movie itself.

It was good. Slooow, but it worked well that way. It's also the second film by Sofia Coppola that I've
really enjoyed [I disliked Virgin Suicides, but loved Marie Antoinette. Go figure]. Looking forward
to The Bling Ring.

Unfortunately, I've not seen any of her films. I must get on that.

I'm glad you enjoyed it.
