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

Well, I think the way most people do it is a 10 being one of the absolute greatest movies ever put to film, an absolute masterpiece, while a 1 is one of the absolute biggest stinkers, with pretty much nothing worthwhile to offer, with a 5.5ish or so being right in the middle, therefore "average." To me a 7 is still a good movie. Hell I gave somewhat of a recommendation to a movie I gave a 6 to recently(Exam).

But it's not like there are any rules or anything, that's just how most of the rest of us do it.

redblackattack i also concur with you on eyes wide shut- very under appreciated, as are perfume and the village. i think with those two especially its a lack of realism that makes alot of people just not consider them in the same way they might pure dramas(which is completely stupid). both those films were beautifully shot, creative, original, ambitious and had excellent scores- you achieve those things alone and you have greatness no matter what else is lacking.
