This list is just.. wow.. Will you marry me? :)

A few notes:

I've had "I Shot Andy Warhol" laying around here from Netflix for like, over a month, and haven't watched it. Since you gave it 4-stars, I'm suddenly very excited to pop it in the dvd player! :)

I've picked up the Jodorowsky dvd box set a few times in the stores and have *almost* purchased it.. mostly just for "The Holy Mountain" - I didn't care for "El Topo". I'm sure I'll get it one day.

You scored "300" so low! I thought it was kinda visionary.. it has such a great look to it. It never ascends to more than a beat-em-up film, but there was good enough character development to complement it.. and the hordes of exquisitely toned bodies didn't hurt, either!

I still need to see "Once"! I never got out to see "The Darjeeling Limited", either.

"Little Chldren" - you know, I walked away not really impressed by the movie.. but it has seriously haunted me ever since watching it. I guess how it was paced, and how certain scenes were shot, and never knowing what was going to happen or where it was leading - really added up to a memorable experience. I'd like to see it again to see if my opinion of it would change..

We're on the same page with "Juno". It's definitely a 3-star movie. Good, but not great.

Thanks for posting this! I always like seeing what you've been watching.
