Look at this list of what's "hot" - then look what's on IFC.No comparison.

My favorite film was" Auf der anderen seite" German for "From the other side" Half of the film is spoken in English the other half is German and Turkish. Great movie. Hollywood sucks.

I've been exploring Werner Herzog lately. I was watching his film, "Heart of Glass," and I thought the actors were purposely acting zoned out and distant. Then I watched with commentary... turns our Werner actually hypnotized all but one actor for nearly every scene. So far, I think I've enjoyed "Where the Green Ants Dream" the most. But hey, I'm an anthropologist... which makes my other recent favorite seem pretty logical. It is called "10 Canoes." An Australian film-maker used an anthropologist's ethnographic work from the 1930's to sort of resurrect an aboriginal tribe's past. He cast only modern members of the particular tribe, who are untrained actors. It is an excellent film if you ask me. There need to be more like it.Oh, and "Trailer Park Boys: The Movie." It was a little overdone, as I expected, but it's still "Trailer Park Boys." Go to Youtube and do a search for 'rickyisms.' I would paste a link, but the video contains some explicit language. Geez, "It doesn't take rocket appliances" or "denial and error...". Classic.

If we had a decent movie theater in this town, then I might go see more big movies. Hollywood is awful. Why can't we have an AMC?I like going to movies at Liberty Hall, however.

I just saw a Godzilla movie from the '70's and it was the best movie I had seen in quite a while.I saw Manhunter recently the first of the Hannibal Lecter series and Awake. Awake was not bad for a major Hollywood release. There was a glitch in the soundtrack as it shifted visuals in some dialogue but the plot beat out most Major Hollywood stuff.

The most reason movie I have seen is I am Legend. I thought it was slow and dry. Will Smith is great, but no Tom Hanks in the sense of carrying a movie. ie. Castaway! I didnt even go to the theater to see the movie. I just rented it!

The reason "Speed Racer" only got 1% is because nobody saw it. The new Wachowski fllm is easily one of the best of summer 2008. Although it is admittedly unorthodox in its execution, it's also probably the nearest thing I've seen to a cinematic masterpiece at a multiplex this year. With this movie, the Wachowskis have further pushed the envelope of filmmaking. With that, I eagerly await "The Dark Knight"...
