    I haven't seen any of Mizoguchi's films (there's still time), nor much at all of vintage Japanese cinema. Sansho the Bailiff has a crazy high PSI and sounds a fine premise. I'll have a look on veoh for some of his films or buy Sansho after City Lights. Ta, PM.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    I like Ugetsu just slightly more than Sansho the Bailiff, but they are both stone-cold classics.

    Your Average Rating: 22.75

    Films you've ranked... As Director (4)

    Bad Boys (1995) - 33

    Armageddon (1998) - 28

    The Rock (1996) - 24
    Probably the most overrated film ever made. If you can get past the terrible acting, script and plot, you'll be staring at the back of your TV.

    Pearl Harbor (2001) - 6

    /100
    Well, I'll give you Pearl Harbor, although you can't deny that the effects in that film were absolutely amazing.

    I enjoyed both Bad Boys films, Bad Boys 2 even more because it was just so gratuitously violent, and it had the kind of stuff I always dreamed of seeing in an action flick.

    I enjoyed Armageddon because it was entertaining, although it shouldn't have taken itself so seriously with the whole love story. It was, overall, exactly what one should expect from a summer popcorn flick and then some.

    But Bay's best films were the ones he made with Dreamworks, such as The Island and Transformers, both of which were well above-average. Curiously, however, those two films had a bit more of a Spielberg tone to them, seeing how he was the executive producer for them.

    * * * * *

    Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End were both highly overrated, but for some reason, I loved Dead Man's Chest, it must have been because of all the stunning technical innovations and imaginative creature designs.

    As far as the innovative water simulations in At World's End, I would have to say that the best digital water simulations of that year were included in Evan Almighty.

    Let's see, what else?

    The movie Crash is ridiculously overrated. I couldn't even sit through it.

    I Am Legend is another overrated film that took itself way too seriously. It should have been a comedy (whereas I, Robot should have been more serious).

    * * * * *

    In terms of video games:

    The Halo and Gears of War franchise are both highly overrated. Haven't played Mass Effect or Assassin's Creed but I'm sure they're equally overrated.

    And despite being a big fan of the series as a whole, Grand Theft Auto IV was extremely overrated. I enjoyed the game, but it's hardly the 10/10 perfect score that Gamespot gave it. I gave it an 8.5/10, and stated how I thought Saints Row was a far more inventive game.

    Multiplayer gameplay is also very overrated, and personally, I find it boring.

Part of what makes it a great movie is the fact that Welles did some groundbreaking camera angles and directing choices that changed cinema thereafter. I watched a movie called RKO 281, about Welles and how he made that movie, and then immediately afterward attended a showing of CK on the big screen in NYC. (I think it was an HBO-made thing, with Liev Scrieber.) First of all, it's a completely different movie when you see it as it's meant to be seen. It completely envelops you, because of the mood he creates right from the beginning. But having some insight into the things that he did that no one else had done before him, and the things he had to fight to do to even get the movie made? It really tranforms the experience. I'm not saying you have to like it, but it doesn't suck.

I love John/Paul's harmonies, and I love the deceptively simple lyrics over complex chord structures.

    I freaking love To Kill a Mockingbird. I think it's one of the best books ever written--I marvel at the craft of that book, and it's one of the few books that have ever moved me to tears.

    I agree for the most part, Mass Effect could be longer, same goes for most Bioware games, and Assassin's Creed wasn't all that special after playing for an hour or two.

    I don't think any of those games suck however, though yes do recieve more praise then they deserve.

    John Lennon is not my hero or my role model, so I can dislike him as much as I want. There are human foibles that accompany everyone, but I found him very pretentious, preachy and intractable for a guy who had very few and shifting views on life. Not admirable.

    John Lennon was a self-righteous douchebag.

    Less preaching, more reading. Many of his political attacks lacked merit.
