False Alarm

This is not a real update . . . hopefully I'll have one soon, but I have other things going on at present. Meanwhile, my top ten movies of the spring semester:

Brokeback Mountain

The Exorcism of Emily Rose

The Red Violin

Maria Full of Grace

Good Night, and Good Luck.

Everything Is Illuminated

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade


Vanity Fair

Paradise Now

I wouldn't have expected this many of this years Oscar nominees to make the list, and I'm a bit worried about how it makes me look . . . but they were good films. Crash made last semester's cut, and . . . I really wrestled with whether to put Munich on here. I really liked it, but I . . . I dunno. It could just as easily be in Capote's spot. I was a bit torn. Brokeback Mountain I say was the best of the best picture nominees. It deserved to win.

Anyway, I have a lot more to say, but I'm a bit tired . . . maybe I'll comment more if prodded. There are some really good movies on this list. If you haven't seen them, I encourage you to take a look and see if any of the plots catch your interest.
