Absolutely! A classic movie, Shadowlink! Orson Welles was such a pioneer in his day, and this film is unmissable despite it being 67 years old.


I'm sorrow Shadowlink and Mitsunari. I hate that movie.


My former Film Studies lecturer would lay the smackdown on your ass if he heard you speak like that!! :lol: The guy had a disturbing affinity for Citizen Kane, and would not hear a bad word against it. Even polite criticisms were rebuked with red-faced fury.

So are you a Kevin Spacey fan in general, bud? :)

Me, my uncle, and his friends sat down and watched Citizen Kane one day. It's so praised, we had to.






Long story short, hated it. And don't be all "Hey man, you don't undetrstand film, and beauty!" or I'll ask you to shut your mouth nicely. I just didn't enjoy it.

Yeah, Citizen Kane was pretty lame. I watched it on TCM a few weeks ago.

Oh yeah. I forgot that no one in this forum pushes their opinions on others.

I really don't like old black and white movies such as Citizen Cane and Casa Blanca, Although Schindler's List wuz awesome.
It is curious that the Americans, who calculate so carefully on the possibilities of military victory, do not realize that in the process they are incurring deep psychological and political defeat.

The Hogfather was pretty good, though I'm not sure if it's qualified as a movie or a mini-series since it originally aired as such in the UK....either way it's good and movie-like enough for me to call it a movie.
Based on the Terry Prachett novel.

I'm watching the natural with robert redford in english class, i liked the book...ending was weak but the book was good, the movie seems good but it strays from the book. its more of a guideline than a theatrical adaption of a classic american novel.
eh, ill find something witty to put here later.

I didn't like The Godfather too much. Carlito's Way, now that's a great movie.
