    Oddly enough, the first one to pop in my head was the crazy sword fight that happens in the middle of the time warp in Ice Pirates

    Errol Flynn vs. Basil Rathbone in The Adventures of Robin Hood (I loved all Errol Flynn swashbucklers - until the point he gets old and alcoholic/bloated-looking and ought not to be wielding a sword)

    The Black Knight vs. King Arthur in Monty Python and the Holy Grail

    Liam Neeson vs. Tim Roth in Rob Roy

    All of the swordfights (both serious and slapstick) in The Three Musketeers with Michael York, Christopher Lee, Oliver Reed, Frank Finlay, Faye Dunaway, etc. I LOVE that movie.

    The first one to pop in my head was the final duel in Cutthroat Island but I think that's really more nostalgia.

    Besides some of the great ones already listed I still love the sword fight in Princess Bride despite how overplayed that movie has been.

    Seeking a quality flick to take in while enjoying a few drinks tonight, I randomly happened upon Louis Malle's Zazie in the Subway.

    I liked Brick more for the comedy then for anything else. I thought the dialogue was hilarious and the entire idea was clever. Gimmicky, I can understand. I dug it though.

    I enjoy the film but it came out during the brilliant first season of Veronica Mars and pales in comparison in just about every way.

    My favorite of his is probably Au Hasard Balthazar



    I rewatched all of the Indiana Jones films for the first time since I was a kid this last week. I had forgotten how much fun these films are and apparently I also forgot the whole first hour of Temple of Doom, great to revisit this series. It was my first time seeing Crystal Skull but I felt it fit with the rest of the films pretty well.

    I started Pasolini's Trilogy of Life with The Demarcaron which was entertaining but seemed very disjointed. After viewing I read that the source material is a collection of a 100 or so stories and Pasolini just filmed a few of his favorites which puts things in better perspective. Looking forward to the next two films in the series.

    The only good thing about the second Pirates of the Caribbean movie was the swordfight on the water wheel.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I learned that the actors sang live in each scene instead of lip synching to a recording. It will certainly make it more authentic, but hoping for really good performances. I'm excited to see it also.

    Even though it borrows heavily from the marketing aesthetics of both the Nolan batman series and the transformers series, that is is still a bad-ass poster.

    Bill Murray just signed on for Ghostbusters 3 apparently. The Toronto sun ran an article but pulled it from their site. Guess we'll have to see.

    I haven't seen it yet. I'm not getting the sense that it's all that great....did you see it?

    Between Russell taking the aforementioned hate-shit on Huckabees and Tarantino childishly planning his retirement over the ascent of digital cinema - which I referred to on Twitter yesterday as the equivalent of his beloved Elvis quitting music over the rise of iTunes - this was like being shanked repeatedly.

    Shadows is actually pretty low on my personal hierarchy of Cassavetes films, but it's absolutely essential. Johnny Staccato episodes are fun to watch if you enjoy Cassavetes on-screen as much as I do. Naked Lunch was enjoyable also. I haven't seen any other films in the series, including On the Road (I bailed on the screening Sunday in order to keep reading the book, which I had endeavored to finish by then).

    I also missed out on Promised Land last night, so I caught Killing Them Softly instead. It is one of the brashest, angriest films I've ever seen, and in many ways, the least subtle film I've seen since maybe Fahrenheit 9/11....but I LOVED it. I'm still considering some of its smaller moments....it's easy to read the film as Dominik on a soap box (and the way this film plays with its music cues and other touches, it would literally be a box with the word "soap" scrawled on the front), ranting into a megaphone about how broken this country is, but I'm inclined to think there's more to it than just "America is fucked, maaaan!" It felt to me like more of a call to action, reserving the bulk of its scorn for those who sit back and accept a broken system or expect it to fix itself. I mean, the film is so fucking confrontational that it literally scores a scene of two men shooting up with The Velvet Underground's "Heroin", almost as if begging you to fight it. But hey, that sort of shit doesn't work for everyone, so handy that it's also super easy to enjoy as a superficial (if unconventional) heist film.

    The pans and Cinemascores (this was the rare film to get an F grade) and box office are bullshit. Go see this movie before it leaves theaters.
