hitchcock: birds

AS NOTED ON FACEBOOK I watched juno last night and didn't really like it. roger ebert, whom I normally respect (except for his knee-jerk politics and matching disdain for anyone who doesn't agree with his views) thinks juno was one of the best movies of the decade. I can think of SOOOOOO MANY movies from the last ten years that I liked better. some of them were even arty/farty. trying hard not to think too hard, here is one for every letter of the alphabet:


1. AMELIE
2. BATMAN BEGINS
3. CAPOTE
4. DARK NIGHT RETURNS-hey I like batman!
5. 8 MILE
6. FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING-I almost put finding nemo here but I could not forsake BOROMIR
7. GOSFORD PARK-i almost put ghost world FOR A REASON
8. HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN-lupin, ladies
9. INGLORIOUS BASTERDS
10. JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK
11. KISS KISS BANG BANG-and I didn't even watch the whole thing
12. LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE-i didn't love this movie but we are going for EASY and it didn't irritate me
13. MEMENTO-didn't even make ebert's best of the decade list
14. NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN-ditto
15. O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?-ditto ditto!
16. THE PRESTIGE
17. THE QUEEN-i couldn't watch this twice, but it's still better than juno
18. THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS-fuck yeah
19. SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE
20. TRAINING DAY
21. UNDERCOVER BROTHER-better than UNDERWORLD or UNITED 93?
22. VANILLA SKY-another hard letter and I did not like V FOR VENDETTA
23. WALL E
24. X-MEN 2
25. YOU DON'T MESS WITH THE ZOHAN-i'm being honest here, I laughed a lot while watching this movie
26. ZOOLANDER

HOW ABOUT YOU? the oughts were a bad decade for me in general, so i'm not going to talk about them any more if possible. best tv shows, maybe.

if you think of the prestige as sci fi you will have a good time with it. david bowie plays tesla!

I love ellen page too, she is SOOOOO CUTE and kitty fucking pride is awesome. I even love michael cera, but he was just a sperm donor in this movie, i couldnt even figure out why she liked him. i thought for sure she was going to try to hump jason bateman, they certainly had more in common.

right after that i tried to watch 500 days of summer and couldnt even get past the first 10 minutes. LAME!! however, cloudy with a chance of meatballs is fucking awesome.

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was the Kevin Smith movie that made me stop watching Kevin Smith movies.

well you're lucky you've never seen jersey girl, then

Man. Now I really want to watch The Prestige. Why have I only seen it once? THIS IS A TRAVESTY

I KNOW!! i need to get it on dvd, i think i've only watched it a couple of times.

Oh I have so totally got your back on this, Salles. I thought it was just another twee little indie film. And I'm sorry, but I am just not capable of suspending my disbelief enough to think that Jason Bateman ever opened for the Butthole Surfers.

it's hard to believe that jason bateman would do much other than make a polite face at punk music if a teenager played some for him. "that's nice, honey!"

ALSO: TWEE IS SO RIGHT. fuck diablo cody in her artfully contrived pen name.
