Right, Wikipedia says so, too. That would explain why the dialogs are almost exactly the same in the book.

I didn't think it was meant to, it's like four mini films, written and directed by four people separately.

Spoiler:
The last scene was suppose to bring it all together with connections to all four rooms. QT was in it with the Bellhop. It was okay, but not great.

Trois Colours: Bleu - I think I'll have to watch the other two movies before coming to a conclusion. On its own it doesn't feel complete enough.

Blue is second best. White is the weakest. And Red is BY FAR the best. It's great on its own as well.

My husband and I went to see "300" last night. It was ok.

The last I saw was "Licence to kill" last night. My BF just bought the attaché case with all the movies, so we're going through them again.
I like Timothy Dalton, but I don't like the main villain, his hence men, the bond ladies or most of the plot..

In other news we (mostly him) have decided to go through all the movies on IMDB's top 250 list..
It will probably be very hard for me, since I have huge problems watching sadistic and dark dramas. Both Reservoir Dogs and American Beauty made me leave the room, and Pulp Fiction and Requiem for a dream still linger in the back of my head, even though it's been years since I saw them..

We'll start with The Godfather either today or tomorrow
We've decided to see every one, even those we've seen before.. (I get to see LotR again.. Wee)
I'm thinking about reviewing every movie, but I'm not sure yet..

The Host

The highest grossing South Korean film of all time.

Part Jaws part Jurrasic Park.

Very funny in bits and some of the best monster designs and effects i've seen in ages.

Excellent.

I watched Greystoke: Lord of the apes yesterday, a great Ian Holm/Christopher Lambert/Andie Macdowell movie from the 80's

My only disappointment with the movie was that at certain points I felt like they skipped scenes way too much.


I just watched Showdown in Little Tokyo, a true action movie classic from 1991.
It certainly had everything that one could want from a 80's/90's action movie.

What a coincidence, guyver. I also saw 300 last night. Great film, fun, bloody and visually striking. Can't wait to see it again!

eXistenZ - Truly disturbing, lets one doubt our reality. Even after Matrix and Waking Life, this scenario never gets old. I liked it.

Pan's Labyrinth - it was alright. Nothing too astonishing, and certainly not deserving the raving reviews it got. I like modern fairy tales, I do, but something didn't seem quite right about this movie. It felt too artificial (maybe the horrible German dub was at fault), although it had some great moments.

Ray - Awesome movie about an awesome artist. Awesome.

The Godfather

First movie on the way to seeing all top IMDB movies, and it wasn't at all as bad as I thought it would be. Still not really my movie, and I think it would have benefited form being made as a mini-series, but the quality and the actors really make it a worth-while thing to see.

I've written a full review here, under the name PantheraMorag. For some reason it has become corrupted (I wrote it in Word, before pasting it into the editor), but you should be able to read it, since the only thing that has been corrupted is the ' and the "..

8.5/10

Saw 300 Sunday! Great movie! Can't wait for the DVD, I may even get the hankerin' to go see it again in theaters. I'm going to see Shooter this Saturday.

Gosford Park
A little on the slow side, and a little over-filled with star names (to the extent that it gets distracting), but an enjoyable film. I wish they'd made more of the whole murder aspect, though.

It's really quite subtle. I recommend giving it another try. To me, it's Altman last great film.

Well, forget about seeing Shooter the lady at the theatre was wrong it doesn't come out until the 23rd. I'm gonna go see The Wind That Shakes the Barley.

Far from being one of the best lists to use for such a purpose.

The only other that's been suggested to me is the AFI list, and that one only contains American movies (and I really doubt that Rocky deserves top 100)..
I know IMDB isn't that accurate because it's user voted, but that's one of the reasons to use it, see the top 250 user favourites, and maybe we can find some other lists of old classics IMDB is missing afterwards...
