    Have you seen Cries and Whispers? I remember liking that one along with Persona the best.

    No,that will probably be the next one. Just trying to see some of Bergman's stuff since he was probably the most famous director I'd never seen anything by...

    Yeah if you're interested in film it's worth checking out people like Bergman. His movies are really emotionally draining though. I've never rewatched anything by him.

    I guess coocoos nest made an impact LOL. Great film by the way. he has another one you might like from that time frame. I think its called The Last Detail. He plays kind of a similar character. No Nurse Ratchet though. Great job by that actress. Everyone is fantastic in that film. I would say its ....a perfect film.

    also....check out The Dream Team. Its basically a remake almost sequel with more of a comic twist. Micheal Keaton plays the Nicolson role and does a great job. It even has some of the same actors. Not quite as moving and dark as coo coos nest but its a really fun film. One of my favorites from Keaton. He is an extremely underrated actor and doesnt do much anymore other than play around on his ranch.

    anyways... Your mom will probably like Dream Team as well. Did you try Cocoon yet?

    I've got Cocoon, and I suspect I've seen it in the 90's if its that movie in which people are sitting in a pool, and they have this great experience and someone says: if that's foreplay I wonder what the real thing will be like.

    Will check out the others. List is tooooo long.

    Sinister - sadly found it quite silly. not even anything very original. I guess after The Walking Dead, it's hard to be disturbed by anything :)

    Guardians of the Galaxy. Watched it on Thanksgiving. Couldn't hear some of the quieter talking parts because the conversation in the other room was too loud, but it was still entertaining.

    Just saw Cocoon - nice. Would have definitely gone off with them if I had the chances. Not to live forever, but to see other civilizations, my primary goal.

    I've also got hold of The Dream Team and The Last Detail.

    Fried Green Tomatoes - interesting, touching story. Jessica Tandy is really beautiful in old age.

    Also saw, The Cocoon - the Return (1988), and The Mirror Crack'd (1980) Liz Taylor, Rock Hudson. This one is based on the true story of Gene Tierney (acted in Laura, The Ghost and Mrs Muir and others) who lost her baby when she contracted German Measles during pregnancy due to a kiss from a fan who broke out of quarantine to meet her.

    Saw "Top Five". It would not be in my top 500. It was barely OK. Obvious and trite.

    Sony's cave-in to North Korea sets a horrible precedent." - Newspaper which wouldn't run the Mohammed cartoons

    Sony Pictures shouldn't have caved in to a communist dictator says president who caved in to communist dictator.

    If Sony had not actually pulled The Interview, I might suspect that it was a brilliant marketing campaign.

    Why would anyone want to risk their life over a stupid movie? Even if the odds of it happening are small, why even bother taking the chance? Just so they can posture as macho men who don't take nothing from nobody?

    Pulling it was the right thing to do.

    You mean "Rebound" (2005).
    The Rebound is a later movie with Zeta Jones.

    They had no choice but to pull the movie:

    1) Security issues first and foremost.
    2) Many of the theaters refused to show the picture so how can Sony make money if the movie is not distributed properly?
    3) Apparently, the hackers have a lot more emails and personal info about certain big celebs in the industry and the info is of a very sensitive nature, i.e. about true sexual orientations and tendencies of certain celebs, and other sordid personal info. Sony does not want that info to get out there.

    Anne Frank - The Whole Story : Ben Kingsley

    The first half did not compare to The Diary of Anne Frank. It did not convey the feeling of claustrophobia, suspense, fear and imprisonment that TDOAF did. The latter did a great job of depicting the year/s in the annexe/attic.

    The second half was much better. It continued where TDOAF left off.
