Too many jew references maybe?

I even found myself moving around every 10 seconds so i wouldnt fall asleep.

I thought the movie succeeded in what it wanted to do. If it was made by some mediocre director this movie would've been a disaster. But you got to give credit where credit is due. I would've rated it higher if they told us the story of the origin of the device they were using to interconnect the subconscious of each other while sleeping. Overall it was a good movie, some may call it spectacular but its not for everyones liking.

They must have seen Levitt in the trailer and thought they were going to a G.I Joe sequel or something.

That's people these days.

EV,
Also, you are missing several Kubrick classics...

The Shining
Full Metal Jacket
A Clockwork Orange
Eyes Wide Shut


Yep... I said 'Eyes Wide Shut.' It seems like the trendy thing to do is to trash that movie, for some reason. Maybe it is because Cruise's legacy has been so tarnished and the whole movie is based around his RL marriage, which obviously fell apart.

But, I watched it for the first time in years recently and it re-affirmed my original conclusion... Excellent film. Lots of very interesting, very deep themes going on, the cinematography is absolutely top-notch, the acting is great, and the tension builds quite nicely throughout.

I have no problem putting it next to some of Kubrick's other certifiable classics.

I'm not Jewish, so I don't think that understanding the ins-and-outs of Judiasm is a prerequisite to liking A Serious Man. I think it just takes some patience and a real love for the kind of subtle humor that the Coen's bring to the table.

IMO some jokes look like easier to get if you know the jewish culture.

Okay I'll start getting the movies you listed. I've read A Clockwork Orange and just recently saw The Shining on t.v. so those will be lower on my list.

For you Coen Bros list I already have Lebowski.

Nice... Also, give Motorcycle Diaries a watch... One of my favorite movies from the past decade.

9/10

Im adding it to my list..

If it is honest to its subject and also has a certain measure of despondency.. Im sure I will like it..


I revel in all that is despondent.

Screw Eyes Wide Shut, go with Paths of Glory. It's one of Kubrick's best (his 2nd best IMO), but for some unknown reason it doesn't get brought up a lot.

I saw it for a second time last night and it was even better the second time. It really is a masterpiece. The theory I held about it was reaffirmed. Also, Nolan has been solidified as my favorite director. Yeah.. I loved it..

Just saw The Book of Eli in blu ray and all I can say is WOW BLU RAY IS SICK...AMAZING. KNEW THE FIRST MOVIE DIDNT LOOK GOOD CUZ ITS OLD...Now for the movie, I thought it was good lol. Didnt see the twist coming but I thought it was ok, I can see where they're goin w/this movie. (Or I think...) Overall to me actually it was a passing movie but nothing above passing, like it wasn't really good. Its worth watching once for sure, and I'm sayin this even though Denzel's in it. Also Mila did a great job as Solara too. So overall I'll give it

The Book of Eli - 7/10
