  1. Most of the ones I’ve watched so far are on DVD. But some, like his 1960’s films, I’ve had to work some magic to obtain.

  2. Well, I watched Battlefield Earth about a month ago, just because I heard it was one of the worst films ever made. It is pretty awful.

  3. Yes, I know I need to watch it. McCarey’s film has been on my list since it was released, and all the numerous positive recs is getting scary. I’ll get on it. It will have to wait until after the LAFF, though.

  4. glenn

    I just saw Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall….last night at the theater. Thought Syndromes was a better film, until this one started sinking in……really cool film .Actually not sure which one I prefer (I do prefer Syndromes to Tropical Malady) Has it opened yet in the US?

  5. No, it won’t open in the US until next yr probably. It’ll play Toronto and I might get to see it if I cover the AFI Film Fest. I can only hope. If so, I’ll go through all of Joe’s films first. One long stroll through the Thai jungles.

  6. Glenn, you did it again. Twilight:Part III, dude, why? Wasn’t the pain of part I and II enough?

    Also just rewatched My Darling Clementine….you should check it out again…..

  7. Hey Bryan- I know, I know, but like it or not, the Twilight Series is a part of our Zeitgeist and I must watch, and this one actually had some cool fight scenes. But terrible overall. I’ve seen My Darling Clementine many times and it gets better with each viewing. One of my top five John Ford’s.

    • I am about to watch The Horse Soldiers. Haven’t seen that one yet, but am reading a book now entitled Stagecoach to Tombstone and it credits the film as being one of Ford’s masterpieces…..We shall see.

      • just popped it in and realized I have seen it. It’s a good one but not in the mood. Feel like a bit of Anthony Mann instead. The Man from Laramie is never a bad choice.

  8. Glen and Bryan- you dudes!!!!!! what is going on here???? the movie King nerd freaks ‘s conversations are pretty interesting here……..i just saw them by chance. Glen’s works are awesome as always…….
    missing the old time with flicks and brews…..

  9. More Anthony Mann is always a good thing. Hi Ning!!! I miss those times as well! Although, it would be kind of tough with two little one’s running around now.

  10. so jealous you have seen Herzog’s latest. That will never open here, so I probably have to wait for the dvd. Went to see Machete last night with Ning….terrible.

  11. Glenn, just watched GoodBye Solo – Ramin Bahrani’s new one…well new (2009) I think….Really great film. He continues his streak of classic films in the making. I am going to show Man Push Cart to my students this term. See how is goes.
