Today I watched The Big Heat (really awesome, A+) and two Luis Bunuel films, his Salvador Dali collaboration Un Chien Andalou and Bellee De Jour (both get A-). Un Chien Andalou is only 16 minutes long and is on YouTube.

Over the past few days I've seen Blowup (A), The Big Red One (B+), and The Dirty Dozen (A+, The Expendables should have been like this.)
 
I've gotten Pandroa's Box, Decalogue, Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler, Enter The Dragon, and, because my niece is going to be in town, a collection of vintage Mickey Mouse shorts (including Steamboat Willie) from the Le Moyne library.

3 Women: Really good. Robert Altman's direction is great, the score is amazing, and the acting is good. How did this not get any Oscar nods? Grade: A+
 
La Belle Noiseuse: A deeply moving tale about a reclusive artist who gets back into the game. Also, it has an INSANE amount of nudity in it. Grade: A+
 
New movies I picked up: Evil Dead.

Cabiria: Really good! It moves at a brisk pace for the first hour, but kinda slows down towards the end. Has good action scenes that still hold up. Grade: A+
 
Enter The Dragon: Insanely awesome. Great action scenes with an explosive finale, but the script is kinda light. Grade: A-
 
Pandora's Box: Started really good, but slowed down immensly towards the end. Grade: B+
 
Movies I picked up today: Bob Le Flambeur (Criterion release), A Cry In The Dark ("A dingo ate my baby"), A Face In The Crowd, A Fish Called Wanda, The Formula (one of the first Worst Picture nominees), and a collection of Frankenstein films including the Boris Karloff original, Bride, Son, Ghost, and House.

Bob Le Flambeur: Really good. The score is amazing, the acting is good, and the camera work is deft. Grade: A+
 
A Fish Called Wanda: Kinda overrated. It's a good movie, but not as good as most people say it is. Grade: B+
 
The Formula: Boring! A good performance from George C. Scott can't save this movie. Grade: C-
 
Frankenstein: Really good and creepy in many places. Grade: A-
 
Bride Of Frankenstein: A masterpiece. The first movie to enter my top 100 in a few monthes. Grade: A+
 
Son Of Frankenstein: Not as good as the last two, but still good. Bela Lugosi stole the show as Ygor, but Boris Karloff didn't get enough screentime. Grade: B
 
Gertie The Dinosaur: One of the most revolutionary animated films ever. It can be found on YouTube. Grade: A+
 
Movies I picked up: The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse and The Leopard.
 
I was wondering about something: should I let short films on my best ever list? When I say short films, I don't mean super old movies that are short by today's standards, but regular length back then like A Trip To The Moon or Gertie. Like, should I add Duck Amuck to my best ever list?

I would add either Gertie, Duck Amuck, Steamboat Willie (or even What's Opera Doc?) to my list of best cartoon shorts.

Pictures move, do they?

A Face In The Crowd: A f*cking masterpiece! Andy Griffith is great and the fact that this got zero Oscar nods is a f*cking shame! Grade: A+
 
The Ghost Of Frankenstein: Kinda dissapointing. It's not bad and Bela Lugosi still steals the show, but Boris Karloff's exit from the franchise is an albatross around the movie's neck. Grade: B-
 
House Of Frankenstein: An utter letdown. Dracula barely gets any screentime and the final fight with The Wolfman and Frankenstein's monster is anti-climatic. The acting is decent though. Grade: C+
 
New movies: Drugstore Cowboy, Fury, Gojira, and Grave Of Fireflies.

A Cry In The Dark: OK. Not as good as some of Streep's other performances, but it's not bad. Grade: B-
 
Drugstore Cowboy: Really good. Future Razzie winner Gus Van Sant does good at directing and look for future Boogie Nights/Hangover star Heather Graham as a junkie with a sad fate. Grade: B+
 
Evil Dead: A horror classic. Good as it is, I still prefer the sequel. Grade: B+
 
The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse: Really good. The special effects are really good for their time and the story is great. Grade: A+
 
New movies: Grand Illusion (Criterion release), Gun Crazy, Harold And Maude, and The Freshman.

Is it wrong that I haven't seen any of the movies you have posted about for the last few days?

No Vits. In fact, I kind of like it since now you (and anyone else here who hasn't heard about them) know about them.

I've been neglecting my Razzie duties so here's some of the classic movies I've been watching lately. Including one of the best movies ever.
 
Harold And Maude: A good offbeat comedy with a great Cats Stevens score. Grade: A+
 
Grave Of The Fireflies: I'm not a fan of anime, but this is still as great movie. Grade: A+
 
Heart Of Glass: Has great directing, music, and cinematography. Grade: A+
 
Gojira: Great action scenes and special effects, but the story is kinda thin. Grade: A-
 
The Freshman: A funny Harold And Lloyd comedy that's not quite as good as Safety Last! Grade: A
 
Grand Illusion: One of the first prison escape movies and a great one. Grade: A+
 
The Decalogue: One of the crowning achievement sin world cinema. The best movies were I, V, and X. Grade: A+
 
Hondo: A good John Wayne movie that turns into a great one thanks to a kick ass battle scene towards the end. Grade: B+
 
Paths Of Glory: A great war movie that set the standards for most war movies and one of Stanley Kubrick's best movies, which is saying a lot. The Omaha Beach scene from Saving Private Ryan was an homage to a scene from this movie. Grade: A+
 
Hoosiers: A nice easy-going movie that entertaining to watch. Grade: B+
 
High Anxiety: Not as good as some of Mel Brooks' other movies but still funny. Best scenes: a mental patient who thinks he's a dog humps Harvey Korman's leg, Brooks getting attacked by Jaws parody in a phonebooth, and the Psycho parody with a young Barry Levinson. Grade: B
 
City Lights: I could go into details about how great this movie, but instead I'll say this: much like how Rotten Asshole is for really, really bad movies, I have a grade called Perfection for really, really good ones. Grade: Perfection
 
If any of my Twitter followers are reading this and wondering why I City Lights an A+ on Twitter instead of Perfection, I won't use Perfection or Rotten Asshole on Twitter because regular Twitter users who don't know about my special grades will be confused. It's like a comic book that uses something in the comic as an important plot point without explaining it.

[Raising hand] I know those ones! I know those ones! I have to re-watch CITY LIGHTS (I saw it years ago). As for HIGH ANXIETY, I gave it a 7/10.
