    I forgot I posted this: My favorites are at the top, anything 8-10 is "Recommended for a general audience."

    Fair enough. But what is good?

    1. Number of times you can watch it anew: Casablanca is amazingly complicated. I've seen it... once in a theater and twice on DVD (once in the evening and once more the next morning) and I didn't even feel like I was starting to understand it until that third time (Ebert is totally wrong. She loves old Rick but she doesn't know if new Rick is old Rick.)... And the ridonkulousness of the soft-light lens on Ingrid Bergman during the closeups.
    2. How much I bawled during the movie: I am Sam- I'm not even particularly familiar with the Beatles, but I'm a total mess the times I've seen this movie thanks to Sean Penn and Michelle Phieffer. And Nobody Knows - it's a Japanese artsie movie semi-based on a true story of a mom abandoning her kids in an apartment by themselves. The unveiling of life and the tiny moments through the tiny kids- their joy is your joy, their boredom- while the other tiny part of you views it as an adult- worrying and righteously angry. Kids make me cry a lot.
    3. How much I'm not sure I got it, at all, in the good way: Millenium Actress- beautiful animated film interweaving the life of an actress with her movies- very surreal but cohesive.
    4. How much I got it, totally: A second for The Breakfast Club. Totally contrived, but I feel every single obviously-scripted line all the same.
    5. How much I want everyone to end up happily: Sense and Sensibility(Ang Lee)
    6. How in suspense I am: Notorius(with Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant)- one of the most edge-of-the-seat moments in this movie involves walking. down the stairs. And Infernal Affairs- talking. on a cell phone. The clean crispness of the cinematography really gets me too.

    I like happy movies too... can't really think of any at the moment though.

    Is it just me or are movies today getting more and more lame?

    Well stated. I feel the same way about bands. I won't slag the first couple of Weezer albums because they influenced a generation of crappy bands. The music is great.

    To be fair, Star Wars wasn't meant to be part of a larger series like Harry Potter was.
    Also, Harry Potter fans aren't as elitist.
    I don't wanna!
