    I haven't seen enough films from 1981 that justify inclusion on a top ten, though I do love the top three and really like the rest:

    1. Blow Out
    2. Raiders of the Lost Ark
    3. The Evil Dead
    4. The Road Warrior
    5. Escape from New York
    6. The Funhouse
    7. Prince of the City

    Need to see again - The Beyond

    I think I'll watch a few films from the year, just because. I'm particularly interested in:

    Possession
    Ms. 45
    Dragonslayer
    Knightriders
    Vernon, Fla.
    Eye of the Needle
    The Aviator's Wife
    Cutter's Way
    Thief
    Modern Romance
    S.O.B.
    Body Heat
    Lola
    Mommie Dearest
    Excalibur
    Letterboxd rating scale:
    The Long Riders (Hill) ***
    Furious 7 (Wan) **˝
    Hard Times (Hill) ****˝
    Another 48 Hrs. (Hill) ***

    My friend Brad did an "Ultimate Bond-a-thon" this past weekend. I wasn't really up for going (life complications and general tiredness), but it was apparently a big hit. They watched every single Bond movie, ranked each one from one to ten, and they assembled a pretty neat video of it here.

    Anyone else prefer the first Godfather to the second?

    It's pretty close, but I really do prefer the first film.

    Weekend:

    Ali: Fear Eats the Soul
    Fish Tank
    Poetry
    Avant-Garde: Experimental Cinema of the 1920s and 30s


    I wish The Fall was a better film, as it's so often gorgeous and spillbinding visually. A cinema experience here would likely hide the story flaws and overall generic nature. Tarsem needs to work from someone else's script--love to see him tackle a Kaufman fever-dream of a script.

    Most of those visuals or montages are completely lifted from other better films though so even on that level meh.

    I only said most not all, and yeah they are lifted and reintegrated into the story he wishes to tell but there are a very large number of instances of such cases throughout the film.

    What I find much more bothersome than the actual addition of the extra scenes and effects in Star Wars Ep. IV (and the others in the OT) is that they're just done so, so poorly.

    Maybe these effects were amazing back in '97, but now they are distractingly bad.

    The Jabba scene at Mos Eisley is particularly terrible. Not only does Jabba himself look awful, but that HORRIBLE manipulation of Han Solo to make him look like he's walking over Jabba's tail is just...ugh.

    Not to mention that the scene itself is just so unnecessary and just STOPS the movie dead in its tracks for a good minute or so. It breaks the building of tension completely.


    I still believe that the definitive versions of these films were the THX Remastered VHS tapes that came out in the mid-90s, a couple of years before the "Special Editions" hit theatres.

    These retained the content of the original releases, and the only alterations made were the addition of the cleaner, more vibrant surround sound audio track, and the sharpening of some SFX (such as the lightsabers, whose colours were made more distinct).

    This is the version of New Hope that should have been released on DVD. It is excellent. Worth tracking down.

    I'd prefer to see Star Wars with all the little flaws intact. It's a 1977 movie and should stay that way.

    I would too, but Lucas has made that nearly impossible.

    And so of all the available modern versions, the Revisited cut is the definitive version.

    Actually, you can. The theatrical cuts are on the limited edition DVDs. In non-anamorphic widescreen, bur it's pretty good.
