    A Simple Plan is decent.

    I have to admit, apart from a few exceptions I've never really developed a taste for films much earlier than the 60s. The aesthetic just doesn't quick click with me.

    A 'What's the earliest film you own' thread would be quite revealing.

    I don't think I've got anything earlier than Some Like It Hot.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Probably The Cat and the Canary for me.

    I've got some 8mm.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Probably Metropolis for me. May have something earlier somewhere.

    Wizard of Oz is probably mine (1939).

    Unbelievably ahead of its time. Could easily pass as a 60s film.

    Funny you should say that. I've got that on DVD but cat and the canary is 39 too...
    Anyway, yeah although it was made in 39, TWOZ was a complete flop believe it or not. Think it was 53 before it found an audience, on rerelease. Incredible film, and even now you'd struggle to find one with so much attention to detail and perfection.

    My wife got me massively into 40s and 50s films (she watched loads with her dad growing up). Try Gilda, Shadow of a Doubt, Elmer Gantry and The Country Girl.

    I recently rewatched casablanca the other day. Before i put it off as just a 40's black and white slightly hammy film. How wrong i was. Miles ahead of it time, so sharply written and a lot of fun. (and quite a moving scene in there) I recorded bringing up baby today as well so look forward to that.

    But yeah, sadly my earliest film is either north by northwest.

    Feh at kalel. Turns his nose up at classic noir, but give him some gay iconography and he'll rush out for the collector's boxset.

    Shadow of the Vampire (2000) 8/10

    Stumbled across this in Cex the other week. The title sounded mediocre, and the DVD cover doesn’t do the film any favours:

    What caught my eye was ‘John Malkovich’ ‘Eddie Izzard’ ‘Dafoe Is Brilliant ****’ ‘Produced by Nicolas Cage’ ‘Compelling, Clever, Jet-black comedy. A Lot Of Fun’.

    It is a film about the filming of Nosferatu, and how the lead actor isn’t an actor, but a real life vampire. The camera crew use a camera from back in the day (wooden boxes with a turn-handle). I quite enjoyed it.

    Hugo (2011) 9/10
    The DVD looks excellent, I can only begin to wonder how good the Blu-ray must look, as this is the type of film to make full use of Hi-def
    I saw the blu-ray version in 3D and it looked fantastic. One of if not the best looking films I've ever seen. Thought that actual film was a bit slow and boring in places though.
    That's it then. Cex will buy the DVD for £2 (I paid £4) and I will buy the Blu-ray + DVD for £5.50 from Amazon.

    Still worth checking out the heavy hitters of the golden years, though, especially if you have more than just a passing interest in films.

    The Sky Crawlers

    An anime film directed by Ghost in the Shell director Mamoru Oshii and based on a book, it involves corperations who fight battles on behalf of World governments, it follows the story of Rostock Air Force pilot Kaname, and his commander Suito Kusanagi. It follows several battles and Kaname's obsession with finding out what happened to the guy he replaced

    Now then it's another great film by Mr Oshii, really detailed good story maybe a tad to long at just over 2 hours but otherwise greatly enjoyed it

    9/10

    Silent Hill: Revelation (3D) - 5/10

    Like the first one; visually spot on but fails in the plot aspect. Like the first one it tries to have a good story but then falls down at the conclusion. At least the first one gave it a try with a big finish, but this one doesn't even attempt that. It has the build up, then skips to the end scene with nothing really explained.

    Project Nim

    Good documentary about a university trying to teach a chimpanese from birth, basic language. Draws to obvious conclusions, but the journey is entertaining, uplifting, yet sad and frustrating (on account of the project and Nim's life).

    8/10

    The Green Hornet - 6/10

    Doesn't do anything wrong but doesn't do anything particularly great either. Has a few funny moments. Decidedly average.

    That's how I feel about most of them too.
    The notable exceptions, for me, being some of the Ealing Classics.

    I love them in the same way that people love vinyl. The 39 Steps, Ice Cold in Alex, The Invisible Man, King Kong, all the Laurel and Hardy stuff, black and white horror, On the Waterfront, Passport to Pimlico, The Lady Killers. Sometimes it's the way they film, or the quality of the imagery -lofi?-, other times it's the simplicity and straightforwardness of the storytelling. A lot of 60's and 70's stuff seem self-conciously stylistic to me, which I find off-putting. Or maybe I just don't like those times.

    Earliest I own is either Rashomon or Invasion of the Body Snatchers (the Don Siegel one). I forget which came first. I've been looking at getting Metropolis though.

    People might have been a little distracted by the impending war perhaps? Not being facetious, coulda had something to do with it.

    I own a fair few 40s noir films, and count a few among my favourite films. Double indemnity and the Maltese Falcon particularly. There's just something about the period that fascinates me. Or at least the way that period is portrayed on screen.

    Oldest films I own are though nosferatu and the cabinet of Dr Cagliari, interesting to watch a time or two but kind of a chore

    Surrogates - 7/10. Its irobot and avatar with a sprinkling of Gamer. Its pretty decent and I like willis anyway.

    Oh and earliest stuff I own, laurel and hardy (all their stuff was released on dvd about 8 years ago I think) and papillon.

    Seeking a Friend for the end of the World
    72%

    Made my laugh but ultimately a bit sad.

    Death Race 3: Inferno
    40%

    Goss trying to be Statham without the muscles or hardman one liners. Crass film at points but I guess the target audience are 20 something males.

    Anchorman
    90%

    Really hope they don't balls the sequel.

    Fellowship of the Ring

    I've decided that today is Lord of the Rings day to accompany my day of editing. The film is still as much fun to watch as when it was released, although the Balrog needed a bigger part. A good fantasy adventure.

    8/10
