    I really like that one meg but yeah Hitchcock did better. Still it's one of my favorites from him because it's a wonderfully simple dark comedy set in the fall in the countryside. Also yes as Grouchy points out MacLaine rocks.

    I remembered 2010 being a lot better.

    No, 2010: The Year We Make Contact

    Sequel to 2001.

    I liked 2010 but the book works better. Still a pretty solid sequel to 2001.

    Last night it was my turn to pick a movie, and I couldn't decide between The Third Man and Gangster No. 1, and neither of us have seen either of them. So I gave Jen the final decision, and she chose Gangster No. 1.

    It took about 40 minutes for me to get on track with the movie, but I ended up really liking it. Has some interesting stylistic choices with the camera and editing, and is a decent character study of an empty monster of a human.

    It's like American Psycho for the British gangster genre.

    Lamb was weird, sure, but I was expecting the kind of weird more up my alley. Still good, tho slow and deliberate. Acting was great; maybe 15 pages of dialogue in the whole movie. Kid was cute. Probably my fault for expecting more of an artsy creature feature. Handily the best fucking "animal acting" I've ever seen, best since the dog from The Thing.

    The Third Man is currently my favorite movie of all time. I made a list on Twitter a year ago I think.

    Do you still have it around, just out of curiosity?

    Has anyone watched films on Vimeo? I want to watch The Wind (1928) and I found it there (https://vimeo.com/122341653) but I don't have a Vimeo account. Will I be able to watch the entire film there or will it cut out because I don't have an account? Or is there a better site to watch this film?

    No but I could probably recreate it seeing as I made it off the top of my head.

    The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane is nearly 50 years old, but still shocking and uncomfortable.

    A great script and fine performances all around, but pedestrian direction that had me wondering if it was made for TV. Very boring visually.

    Martin Sheen plays one of the most disgusting, deplorable characters I've seen in a film in some time. And the script and concept makes good use of Jodie Foster's unusual maturity.

    However in a film about the revolting sexualization of a 13 year old girl, it makes a really strange decision in having her engage in male-gazey on-screen disrobing. That felt very icky.

    Good movie, though. Glad I saw it. As I said at the start, it's still shocking today.

    Alright - I couldn't get past the first 10 minutes so I'll give it another shot.

    It's worth a watch for sure, especially with it being so short.

    What we've watched the last couple of nights...

    Star Trek: The Motion Picture
    This is really good and I don't get why it is so polarizing. It feels as truly Star Trek as you can get - hard sci fi with big ideas. It wears its inspirations on its sleeve (2001, Forbidden Planet), and does cool new things with effects and visuals. And man, that musical score is legendary. Incredible stuff.

    Baby Driver
    Good movie that is ruined by the presence of two serial sex offenders in lead roles. And Elgort isn't even very good.
    But it has some great humour, astounding action, and Wright has a lot of fun with the camera as he always does.
    Just wish it had different casting.
