    2005 Track Your Films List

    I understand your intentions, but most lists on all previous film lists have sections for first-time viewings, festivals, shorts, etc to go along with that year's titles. I really don't see the use of having a completely alternate thread. In fact, with the upcoming 2005 list I am hoping to do...

    Jason's Films of 2003 Report! Top 10: #1: The Lord of the Rings: The Return Of The King (United States & New Zealand, 2.39:1, 201 min., dir. Peter Jackson) I was certainly a fan of the first two “Lord Of The Rings” films, but I had no idea that the final instalment would break past every...

    Hollywood, will you PLEASE retire the Wilhelm scream!?

    I'm glad others have noticed this scream. I noticed it in ROTK as well. The foley that REALLY bugs me, however, is the "kids laughing" sound that I first heard in the english dub for Jackie Chan's "Rumble In The Bronx", and has been in over a dozen films since. (The kids around Anakin's pod...

    Do not go to AMC 20 in Fullerton CA for LOTR

    That could have been a mistimed automation cue that caused the projector and sound to shut off at the "lights up" cue rather than at the tail of the credits. I've seen this happen a few times before. Jason

    *** Official MONSTER Discussion Thread

    I certainly can't wait to see this film, but I did see Nick Broomfield's documentary about Aileen Wouronus entitled "Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer" at this year's Vancouver Film Festival, and while it wasn't my favorite documentary from there, it did have one of the most memorable...

    Strategies for "surviving" Trilogy Tuesday (LOTR)?

    As someone who has attended five films in one day at this year's Vancouver Film Festival, and who normally sees 2-4 films during the weekend, mostly just on Saturday, Trilogy Tuesday will NOT be a problem whatsoever.

    2003 Film List

    "No, both Nowhere In Africa and City Of God are considered 2003 films for the list (right, other Jason?)" Yeah, both films are on my list too, it works for me. "Spider" I saw at VIFF 2002 and it opened in a few theaters in Canada in December, then opened again in major cities this March...

    Hollywood ruining film prints on purpose (those red dots you're seeing)

    Phil, The dots you saw in Last Samurai were printed by Technicolor's CAP code system, which are less intrusive than the code that's being printed by Deluxe these days. Some recent Deluxe-printed films that have had noticeable, ya-cant-miss-it CAP code printed throughout one reel: -Elf -...
