Darjeeling Limited.

Hotel Chevalier was a better view only because it was a new use of the Wes Anderson aesthetic. Darjeeling Limited is touching at times and of course composed with detail, but...

The new Kubrick DVDs came out today (FUCK YEA), and if you're not getting them then you're probably retarded. Or not in Region 1. Or don't care to get them.

It's not that though, that I thought the narration was essential. As all narrators do, it represents a god-figure that knows everything about everyone. One of the big themes of the movie was the...

I don't know who would have said it's Hitchcockian but I think it's a very successful neo-noir thriller.

Lucky you I'm so bored at work today I decided to just rewrite it. But since there are possibly spoilers in the longer review, I'll just say that I like it but the last act is a meltdown.

I saw Sunshine last night and wrote a review but lost the entire thing in a copy-pasting debacle. Fuck! I'll rewrite it in a few days, I guess.

I don't personally like Schindler's List, but not for those reasons. In any case, there will always be dumb people; I don't think age is a factor here.

I believe the Chinese/Japanese have a naming system that is essentially reverse of ours. So in China you'd say Li Gong but in America we'll say Gong Li.

Your opinions for the two films were not what the critics thought, is all. Critics love Jennifer Hudson, and critics hate Lady in the Water. I haven't seen either.
