    It would be nice for history to repeat itself... And although I liked Jarhead, I still agree with you.

    Johann you certainly are passionate about the uselessness of this film. I can see why you think that this movie states the obvious. And it does. It shows people like me, who have never been in an...

    I tend to disagree about the look of the film. I think that the Jacquot in his attempt to do something simple gave the film a horrible 80s soap opera look. He has a bunch of useless pan aways and...

    While Oscar Jubis' theory is almost perfect, I have a few different opinions. While I believe that for the most part there are around the same amount of bad movies to good movies in ratios, I do...

    I'm going to agree with Arsaib4 on this one. DVD and theatrical release on the same day not only seem to be coming, but also a good solution. Although, this will drop sales steeply, the revenue from...

    I read that shortly after I posted this. You should read that article to see what the Times says about things.

    3.5% was Star Wars opening weekend. This memorial day weekend was down 5%. Yes, ticket sales are affecting the smaller theatres greatly, although it is not the largest factor. DVD sales are most...

    I'm going to agree with Chris and wpqx on this. It's not that I care that ticket sales are down, it's that I'm worried. I guess in a sense that is caring about the ticket sales, but it is a different...

    I was referring to the economics of the system when I talk about the decline of the studios, but the studios lost power during that time as well. During the 40s people bought 95 million tickets a...

    The 50s were the decline of the studio years. TV shows such as Dragnet were short and entertaining and you could stay home on your couch. Theatres were long and you couldn't leave during the studio...

    I can see your points, and I agree with you on most of them, but I don't think we can blame the bad movies that keep coming. I thought last year was a terrible year for movies, as it was the year...

    Film Sales Drop

    I saw Hitchhiker's yesterday, and was a bit dissapointed with the script, not the performances. I've read only the books and I loved them. I find them hilarious and intelligent, not flat at all....

    To me Saraband was a bit of a dissapointment. I found what I expected, but also saw that Bergman decided to break one of the key rules of cinema. Show not tell. Film is a visual art, and the scene...

    I can see that Up Against Them All is gettin ragged on here, I would agree. I was also in the sold out theater, and surprised to see people hiding in corners to stay in the film. I'll just move on...

    I like these reviews of Los Muertos and King's Game. I was at King's Game as well, but I feel that everything that should have been said about that has been said, so I'll move to the other two films...

    I was at Kings and Queen as well, which I found entertaining but too long and unedited as has been posted here before, so I'll move on to the other films I saw.

    I'll just say it was brilliant.

    Rio Bravo
    It was okay... Hawks' directing bothered me a lot though.

    The Life of Emile Zola
    This won Best Picture in 1938 I believe... I thought it was a very well made picture. It is very relevant today, at least if you live in America. It is a bit slow at some...

    I thought that Les Quatre Cents Coups was a very well made film. Truffaut directing was great. I thought the acting was pretty good too. Now that I think about it, it was a great film... I'm not...

    The Broadway Melody
    of 1929 to be exact... This was interesting, but not that great. Although I did like a few of the musical numbers.

    Les Choristes
    I was blown away by the beauty of the music, and the simple but effective shots that Christophe Barratier used... Not much else to say.

    Constantine
    Well. What should I say about this? Luckily, I didn't have to pay for it. I have to comment on several things about it. Firstly, it was a lot like The Matrix in the outline. Both Neo...
