    Blair Witch is all about using your imagination, otherwise it isn't scary at all.

    The best of list was pretty good but it is missing Lost Highway off the top of my head...

    Hey, if we are going to mention any 90's Lynch films that need a re-examination, let's talk about Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.

    Dracula is pretty ridiculous, but it really is worth it for the makeup, Costumes, set designs, etc. The entire look of that movie is so fucking gorgeous and amazing.
    EDIT:
    Ha, I knew I wrote a little bit about it before. This was from 2010:
    I watched Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula for the first time last night. The visuals of the film are absolutely stunning at every level - sets, props, locations, cosrtumes, make up, special and visual effects, use of animals...everything is just fucking brillaint to look at. The visual effects are totally not dated in any way either; you can really tell that a lot of time and money were spent on this thing.

    The only problem is that the movie is fucking terrible in almost every other regard. So many absolutely bizarre decisions are made in this movie, and so many moments left me going, "what they fuck were they thinking?" So....yeah.

    If you know you like David Lynch just a little bit, straight out just buy the set off Amazon. I got mine for $50, and you get your money's worth. Granted, a large portion of the second season is not very good, but as a whole, it's awesome. Also, the soundtrack to both the series and movie are worth your time, and you can usually get a used copy of either at Amoeba for around $4.

    Now I have to go watch Dracula again. I agree that it is incredibly beautiful throughout, althought the story does not make sense, but I love that dracula/beast and Lucy sex scene. I don't really care for Keanu Reeves in that role.

    I was also happy to see that the list of "Orphans, Outliers, and Personal Favorites" included Beyond The Mat. Anyone who has seen The Wrestler should see this as either a follow up or as part of double feature.

    Once I went to UC Davis I damn near stopped watching movies I was so busy so there is a good 4-5 year chunk of time where I wasn't watching nearly as much as I normally do. This year I've been going through a lot of shows I missed around that time. I marathoned through Fringe, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Walking Dead, Parks and Rec, The Wire all for the first time in the last year or so. Twin Peaks' time is coming but I have a few more I want to get through that are still on the air before I get to it.

    Night and Fog is really short, make it today's goal! :-P

    I saw Carl Theodore Dreyer's Vampyr last night at Cinefamily with a live score by Steven Severin. It was fucking magnificent, and probably the first vampire movie I've ever thoroughly loved. The DVD projection was a bit of a bummer, but it was an outstanding experience. I'm basically at the point where I'll see any movie with a live score. And also, after this and Ordet, I need to see every Dreyer film now.

    Was it the Criterion DVD at least? Also, you need to see Passion of Joan of Arc if you haven't yet.

    Damnit, that was last night? I totally meant to go.

    And I love that Barton Fink was ranked as highly as it was. That might be my favorite Coens film.

    I didn't like the AV Club 90s list, but the Top 10 was pretty good, and I loved the fact that they put Goodfellas at #1. For my money, it's probably the most watchable movie Scorcese has ever made - perfect pitch, perfect tone, perfect conclusion. And "Layla" in the credits. Great movie, I rarely turn it off if it's on HBO or whatever.

    Saw The Master tonight, went way over my head. The acting was good, but I had a hard time figuring out what was compelling Amy Adam's character to be such a bitch.

    So I'm a year late to the party with Kenneth Lonergan's Margaret, but I think it was one of the finest movies I've seen in quite some time. It would make for a great double feature with Gus Van Sant's Paranoid Park.

    Malick sighting! It's kind of like trying to spot Waldo, but he's briefly visible off to the left, he's wearing a large brimmed hat. He was filming Rooney Mara pretending to play with the Black Lips. I guess Ryan Gosling was there too, but isn't visible on camera.

I think most people will see this as little more than a camera test, but I want to know what (if anything) you get out of it. You know, if you care enough to spend nine and a half minutes watching it in the first place.
    I enjoyed this. Knee jerk reaction - I thought the use of music and noise created a really palpable sense of paranoia and general uneasiness, and was really effective. I remember thinking that about the last one too. Really good looking little piece visually, I liked the shots of the house as well.

    Is anyone using MoviePass? From the little Ive read about the service it sounds too good to be true. Site is beta/invite/waitlist now so I cant really investigate much. Curious which theaters it works at and if there are any big restrictions.

    Essentially you pay a monthly fee of $30~(varies +/- on your area) and you can attend movie theater screenings as often you want. There's a mobile app that reserves you tickets and then you just swipe a little red moviepass card to pick them up in the same way you pick up your tickets with a credit card.

    https://www.moviepass.com/ Its invite only right now and has a huge waitlist apparently. Have not heard of anyone that actually is using it yet.

    I had it for about two months earlier this year when they had all the ArcLight locations on there. Then those went away and I got rid of it. They did still have the Laemmle's, though. It was quite easy to use.

    Woah, that would be incredible with the Arclights. Three movies and you're covered.

    Thanks, big dog.

    I quit on it too. It's a decent little service but the theater lineup was way too erratic.

    Also, my experience of working on it may bias me, but Argo is a thoroughly excellent movie. There are some fleeting false notes here and there (including the denouement) but for the most part Affleck totally nails it, finessing volumes of genuine suspense and humor out of a real life tale whose ending is already known. Easily his best work as a director so far, and one of the more entertaining movies I've seen in a while.
