11/13/2004 – I really think this one deserves a better grade, I just was busy while watching it and need to see it again.

Once upon a Time in America (Sergio Leone – 1984) A+

11/12/2004 – At almost 4 hours long, this film flows without a single boring moment. The story is great so are the cast members, the perfect set pieces, the music and the editing and filming of the past and present in the long tale. I rank this one up there with the Godfather trilogy and Goodfellas.

This is Spinal Tap (Rob Reiner – 1984) A+

11/06/2004 – Fantastic piece of original work that never gets old and always remains funny. I am not sure where to start praising this gem that started all the later mockumentary films like Waiting For Guffman and the awsome Best in Show. The commentary track is almost as funny as the actual film BTW, check it out.

A Clockwork Orange (Stanley Kubrick – 1971) C+

11/03/2004 –  I really thought this was overrated, and did not care for it much or it’s wierd values. I have to admit some scenes are quiet well done and worth watching. One example is the one when our dear protagonist is back from “rehab” and meets the young fellow who his parents rented the room to.
