    Just saw the newest Narnia film. I loved it. It was very good and I find myself looking forward to what they will do with the next book, The Silver Chair.

    But what on earth was the point of the 3D thing? It didn't add anything to the film.

    Star Trek, Wrath of Khan. Its theme bookends two classics, A Tale of Two Cities, sacrificing yourself for another, with Moby Dick, sacrificing yourself and your crew for vengeance.

    Shutter Island. Can't get enough of it. Watching it over and over and over again in an endless loop.

    The soundtrack is out of this world!

    And so is the movie.

    Been a while since I've watched a movie.

    I think the last I saw was Kagemusha.

    Last movie I saw at the theater was The American, which I found pretty disappointing.

    I just watched a movie from 2005 called "Flyboys," kind of a "Top Gun" set in WWI. While I enjoyed it, I found it a typical Hollywood blockbuster, in other words predictable and formulaic. The biplane effects are pretty good though. I'm surprised I had never heard of it until now.

    One of the best films ever made, however, I can see why some would say otherwise. I haven't met anyone yet who hasn't got strong opinions about this film. It's like Marmite, you either love it or you hate it. Has anyone seen this film and got strong opinions about it?

    Always at the top of my list. Regardless of whether you enjoy Kuberick's narrative style, 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the most technically virtuosic films of all time. And a terrific sound track as well.

    I've watched this so many times I can quote dialogue and I actually dreamed about HAL the other night.

    If you haven't seen 2001:a space odyssey yet, don't judge it by today's editing and pacing standards, or even as a movie. It's more of a work of art that happens to use film. It may seem to drag to modern viewers. But I remember as a 12 year old kid in 1968 or '69 seeing it in the movie theater in Cinerama (sort of the IMAX of its day) and it was like having some kind of psychotic break. I was terrified, inspired, confused, uplifted, all at the same time. It must have been something like what people experienced on the debut of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.

    Everyone has heard of the cultural icons of that movie now, HAL, the Monolith, the Starchild, etc., but back then no one knew what to expect. I remember clenching my hands so tightly during the Monolith sequences (with Ligeti's Requiem playing at almost rock concert volume) my fingernails nearly drew blood from my palms. I feel very fortunate in having experienced this when it was new, when no one knew anything about it so it had the full emotional and psychological impact. It was a kind of religious experience. Certainly a rare life changing event for me.
