The Notebook is TERRIBLE. And for whatever fucking reason, S-M-R-T people I know kept recommending it...

Yeah. Emily's last trainer rec'd it, but I was able to stop Emily from seeing it first.


And actually, the editor's commentary on the deleted scenes was awesome if you're a hollywood geek.

I also enjoyed Sandwiches That You Will Like. I've run across several good documentaries by that producer on PBS. Check out A Cemetery Special and A Hot Dog Program. The Unusual Buildings... one had some interesting stuff, but was less about the people, so it wasn't quite as fun.

We're going roadtripping to try some of the places!

Exciting!

(Oh, and we settled on a nearby place for the dinner, and I think you'll like it better. Thanks again for all of your help, we appreciate it.)

Yeah, what she said.

I'm a little too excited about going to the place where the reuben came from.

yay Black Adder. I love Rowan Atkinson. I've always wanted to see all of Black Adder, but I've only caught a couple of episodes on BBC America. I've got the series on my queue.

I like Alexander Nevsky. I like that it's about Alexander Nevsky which makes me think of St. Petersburg. It's not as good as Ivan the Terrible, which is really Eisenstein's masterpiece.
You did watch both part I and part II of Ivan the Terrible, right? I think Part II is really great. There was a part III, but it was destroyed.
Anyway, I thought Alexander Nevsky was boring the first time I saw it. I had to watch it a second time to see the great stuff in it.
Alexander Nevsky isn't the best Eisenstein, but it's good.

Yeah.

Ivan the Terrible was pretty amazing.

So when did you watch all this Russian cinema?

Russian film is my area of knowledge. I was a Russian major. I watched a lot of Russian films when I studied in Russia.
I watched the most when I took a course in Russian film, taught by a notable Russian film and theater expert, who also co-taught my seminar.
My professor was impressed with how much I had seen. I had already been running a Russian film series. By the end of my senior year, I was showing two Russian films a week.

In the Russian film course, we watched Battleship Potemkin, Que Viva Mexica and Alexander Nevsky. and we watched Ivan the Terrible in a Russian history course. I accidentally watched part two before part one.

Oh, okay!

This is what I suspected.


Well, I am watching old Russian cinema as background for my soundtrack project on a Fischer vs Spassky game.

It hasn't gotten very far, but the absolute highpoint has been The Sacrifice. That was just such a damn amazing and literally uncompromising film.

interesting.

I haven't seen the sacrifice. I've seen several Tarkovsky films, and I do want to see them all.
I haven't yet seen any from the period when he had moved to Sweden.

Tarkovsky is definitely the giant in Russian film after the golden age.

How exactly are you listing your lists? On http://del.icio.us/? Or just here or do you have a system at all?
Yahoo just bought http://del.icio.us/ - I think and that is probly where yahoo 360 comes in. Anyways I am finding IMDB's "mymovies" a handy listing tool. I am already up to 500!

Yeah, I'm just listing them here. The basic love/hate tag system is enough for me.

I used to rate with netflix for suggestions, but my queue is big enough that I don't need them anymore.

I've heard very positive things about yahoo's movie system.


(By the way, I love how you spelled and punctuated everything well in this comment, but used an online spelling of probably.)

I have had a bug up my ass about english lately. It comes from almost double majoring in art and english. As well, it also comes from realizing how pathetic most people's english skills are.
