John Dies at the End - bizarre fim, which I suppose is not a surprise coming from Don Coscarelli. The story is a total mess but I think that's sort of the idea. Better if herbally enhanced, I'm sure.

I watched JDATE over the weekend (not to be confused with jdate.com), and I can vouch for the fact that herbal enhancement didn't add much. Hallucinogens might help, particularly if you ingest enough to be unable to follow a plot.

 Stoker was just not good.

Kinski, everyone is in it and it is fascinating to watch. They really did drag that boat through the rainforest to make the story of a man who needs to drag his boat through the rainforest. What madness! What fun! Some hilarious moments.

Ah yes, I actually have this docu, but haven't watched it yet. Ditto My Best Fiend.

now i want to go watch blue valentine

I really liked the place beyond the pines.

I've also seen Blue Valentine - its okay. Quite difficult to watch at times.

How much you like Blue Valentine will depend entirely on if you are a fan of acting. Gosling is pretty good and Michelle Williams is incredible

Blue valentine is fucking stellar. Ryan Gosling is a beast.

 I thought it was awful. Great actors, the idea was good and old fashioned but the writing was a disaster.

The Man Who Loved Women, Truffaut

Un Ete Brulant, Monica Bellucci satisfies.

Viaggio in Italia, Rossellini direct Bergman in Naples

Blow Up, Antonioni in London.

If you're on Facebook, it's worth it to "like" Monica Belluci. Whoever maintains her page posts hot pics of her pretty much every day.

been on a 80s-90s streak!

A Fish Called Wanda, City Slickers, Unforgiven, Heat, Crocodile Dundee, Lethal Weapon(s), 48 Hrs, Escape from Alcatraz, True Lies, The Abyss

in between that, Coen Bros run, Blood Simple, Miller's Crossing, Fargo, Barton Fink, as well as a shitload of westerns, John Fords, John Waynes, Clint Eastwood. Western movies are such a great escapism. From John Wayne and John Ford I like The Searchers the most; while Eastwood's a tie between Unforgiven and Pale Rider.

I really love 90s movies simplicity. The landscape is different now with all the VFX opening pathways to unforeseen filmmaking but I think the large percentage of films are overwhelmed by it. Meaning the movies become VFX fest with cardboard characters and plot.

I dunno, but watching movies like classic Antonioni, as well as North by Northwest for example... there is a really strong relationship with the elements. When Cary Grant infiltrates the villa atop of Mt. Rushmore, the industrial architecture envelops him and there is a sense of chilling suspense as well as wonder. Like you're having an actual adventure. On the contrary, in say, Skyfall, which is actually a spy movie... the middle eastern sequence early in the film only gives us a sense of chaos. The camera never sit still and show the shadows... and then Bond spots the bad guy and after that it's just another chase scene.

also, I really like the mood (not the whole flick) of Robert Downey Junior's Sherlock Holmes; meaning Victorian (Edwardian?) England setting but with a good amount of set exploration and dark/hero-centric plot.

any recommendations? I saw A Room with A View but obviously it's a romantic drama, not that I dislike it
