    That isnt his real list, I think it was an attempt to be ironic. He bashed Lawrence of Arabia a few pages back if Im not mistaken.

          I know I made a joke in there about the director's last name, but it's called Citizen Kane. Have a little respect for the greatest movie ever made, well, obviously not the greatest, I have it at #7, but unarguably the most influential.

          That's my list guys. It's legit. I was joking about LOA being boring. It is 4 hrs. and very long, but it's also incredible.

          I'm waiting for you to pick one or two of those movies out and tell me how much you hate them.

            No that movie was boring, I could care less how influential it was.

              Of course you are. You crave the attention.

              • So, its been a while since the last time I watched No Country for Old Men... not gonna lie, I forgot just how thought provoking that film was. What is everyone's opinion on the ending, not just the last scene, but just prior to that as well?
                It was a disgrace but at the same time a complete relief. I could stop waiting for something to you know... actually happen and just turn it off and walk away thinking why has anyone rated this a good film?

                I'm pretty sure that NCFOM will always be the "worst" movie that I ever see as in I went in with high expectations because I had heard 99.9% good things about it and it was just so ordinary, wasn't funny, wasn't dramatic, no action, no twists just nothingness, vast amounts of nothingness.

                Funniest thing though is that I have still not seen anyone who could actually explain why they liked it. For instance, Blade Runner, I didn't like it either but people can tell me why they did like it and I can see that angle, NCFOM no one has ever really said anything more than "because" as an explanation for liking it.

                      I think one of the things that makes it so great is how it explores the nature of evil. You follow Chigurgh throughout the movie, understanding what he wants(The money), but when you think about it, what would he do with it if he got it. What motivates pure evil?

                      This isn't supposed to be an exciting movie, it is supposed to be slow in a way. I mean the Cohen brothers didn't even use music which speeds up a movie and fills space. This movie is about appreciating the dialogue and the nuances. You have to really listen to all the little speeches by Bardem and TLJ.

                      Im not sure whether you were not paying attention or had your thumb up your ass or what, but that movie was great. Im not going to say it was an all time classic or a masterpiece. But it was an impressive and entertaining movie. Maybe not every movie can be entertaining in the Rambo or Diehard way.

                        Also, I find it hilarious that you placed a Kurosawa film so high considering how intentionally similar Leone's movies were paced.

                        • The Bicycle Thieves is your number one movie?

                          That movie was........ dull. Not even the little boy version of Jennifer Aniston could save that movie.

                            See that first line is the problem. Every movie should be exciting, as in it should excite my senses in some way. It had the opposite effect, it dulled me to the point of wanting to bludgeon myself with that sweet weapon that Bardem was carrying around.

                            TLJ just sounded like some old bitter guy complaining because he let life past him by, I don't know but people like that just **** me, I can't relate to sitting around sulking and I feel no sympathy for anyone who lets themselves get to that point in life. Maybe it's just me but that type of character is just annoying. Bardem pulled off evil, honestly he was really good, but evil has been done before plenty, I liked him but it was like he was acting in an empty room because there was nothing else around him. Like that lone tree out in the desert somewhere just standing there watching nothing happen around it...

                            Im not sure whether you were not paying attention or had your thumb up your ass or what, but that movie was great. Im not going to say it was an all time classic or a masterpiece. But it was an impressive and entertaining movie. Maybe not every movie can be entertaining in the Rambo or Diehard way.
                            See that's the thing, I don't particularly like either of those movies because they are just fluff for the most part, as I said, I had my hopes up because from what I read it sounded like NCFOM was going to be right up my alley. I watched it twice because I assumed maybe I'd missed something the first time, it was even worse the second time because I knew what was coming. The "best" part of the movie was trying to pick what the absolutely mind blowing twist must be to have people like the movie, that twist just never came it just kept going down the same boring path.

                            I don't know what it was about the movie, perhaps the expectations but it was just so bad, imo of course. Like I imagine if I didn't read so much about it I would have just turned it off but I figured something must be coming/happening for it to be so well regarded.

                            For what it's worth, I didn't really like There Will be Blood that year either, same sort of thing, it reminded me of Avatar, only it didn't feel as good. I will say NCFOM was like nothing I have seen before in that it basically had no story, no ending and no point to it.

                            I just don't know what it is because I really wanted to like it and just cant. 500 Days of Summer was sort of the same last year. That one had the same lets be different for the sake of being different vibe to it and again was just completely underwhelming, that one was meant to be a comedy but I don't remember laughing once and it went from I think attempting comedy to just being rather depressing. Those are probably the two most disappointing movies I've seen based purely on what I expected to what I got.

                            Then again, I'm one of those that thought Batman Begins was far better than the Dark Knight, despite Heath's efforts so who knows about my taste. I also must throw out that I do not watch movies to critique the camera work or the landscapes or any of that technical garbage, I judge purely on whether or not I was entertained and enjoyed the movie or if at least had some kind of poignant message or lasting image. For instance I wouldn't say that I exactly enjoyed Requiem for a Dream or Trainspotting but I'll be damned if they aren't two of the best movies I have seen. I just didn't get NCFOM or it's appeal.

                            Having mentioned the Dark Knight, NCFOM is actually very similar, Ledger was better, but outside of that you have a character of pure evil/chaos that is just about perfect and not a hell of a lot else around it, Dark Knight actually attempted to have other things though, NCFOM just seemed happy to have Bardem nail his role and to put absolutely nothing that would take away from that or distract, again, back to my lone tree in the desert...
