#53: Ebert’s ‘102 Movies You Must See’ List – A Star Is Born

10.23.07

A Star Is BornI’m not prone to falling asleep during movies, but this one sure did the trick. Maybe it’s a musical thing, anyway, A Star Is Born was not my kind of movie. The plot seemed very tired (no pun intended). I was bored with the movie before I fell asleep, but I assumed it would get more interesting.

The Seven Samurai #53: Ebert’s ‘102 Movies You Must See’ List

10.06.07

Did they really say “sheeeeyit” in the 1600s? Yes, it was the subtitles, but it seems like they would have had a more clever word for expressing: “I can’t believe my misfortune.” Finally finished watching The Seven Samurai this afternoon. Overall, it was a good movie, but a little too long. Very epic. The hyper Samurai, who used to be a farmer, was just so over the top – he was kind of the Jar Jar Binks of Seven Samurai.

The Manchurian Candidate – #53: Ebert’s ‘102 Movies You Must See’ List

And doesn’t Jude Law look like Laurence Harvey?!

The Bicycle Thief – #53: Ebert’s ‘102 Movies You Must See’ List

09.18.07

This film definitely deserves to be on a “greatest films” list. When you think about the plot, it seems fairly simple and boring, but it’s so real. You can feel their pain of living in poverty and needing the bicycle to have a better future. And the cycle continues. Great movie, and the ending was very appropriate.

A Streetcar Named Desire – #53: Ebert’s ‘102 Movies You Must See’ List

08.27.07

This movie made me laugh. I know, I know, it’s a ground-breaking, revolutionary, Oscar-winning film. But as far as acting styles, it seemed rather forced, which says a lot for previous acting style if this film shook things up. I bet it was rather shocking at the time though. :)
