Special Thanks to...

So, 2011 was a pretty rough year and I owe a lot of people thanks... too many to list right now. So, here is a small selection of items that stood out during the rough patch that was 'the end of 2011'. Here is to a great 2012 and making many more discoveries during the year.

Duel (1971)


Feature Lists!!!
The Giraffe's 30 Days, 30 movies list
Super films of the '70s
My favorite Horror movies - 70s
October 2011 Horrorfest

OK, sometimes I'm a bit slow. Other times... I swear I'm just brain damaged. Every single time 'the giraffe' put this on one of his lists or I revisited one of those lists I would think "Doh! I meant to rent that!". Then weeks would go by and sure enough a new list would emerge and "Doh! What happened? Isn't it in my apartment somewhere right now???" ... so yes... thanks for the persistent list making ;)

Review by lotr23

I actually really enjoyed this film. Sort of an acton/thriller but driven by the acting talent and script. So... no car chases and explosions... which was rather welcomed.

This had been on my 'to watch list' for some time but discovered a new list and figured it was time. I had also somehow thought I had seen it before... I was wrong.

I had been waiting a long time for this dvd to show up in my mail box. I was *not* disappointed. A dark comedy that didn't dive into complete darkness.

I had read story of some of the women that welcomed the arrival of the UN forces... only to be raped and sold into slavery. One of the worst atrocities all done with diplomatic immunity and corporate obscurity.

Missing (1982)


While Costa-Gavras's "Z" is still my favorite of his films. This film didn't disappoint my pretty high expectations.

Super 8 (2011)


Super 8 and "Attack The Block" have quiet a bit in common. While "Attack The Block" may have a more gritty realistic feel...

I'm a sucker for the wanna-be director and cute boy-girl first loves. So... "Super 8" pulled at my heart a bit more.

The Countess (2009)


Based on the story of Erzebet Báthory her atrocities are fairly historic. I liked that the film focus on the political situations of that time and how it became important to remove Erzebet Báthory from power. My only complaint is that the language in the script is a bit jagged.

I Am Love (2009)


A boring disappointment on every level. All I can really tell you is that if you take a story of impossibly wealthy people, throw in cooking food and one sex scene and the critics just seem to fall all over themselves.

There have been quite a few films that give a similar impression as this film, one where people become just another commodity to trade or exploit. After about the third for forth film... it becomes a little difficult to sit through. There is a subtly to this film that most others lack... however it is not one of Soderbergh's stronger films.

Hum, when a film uses extensive use of 'voice over' to explain that the Hollywood set is in fact somewhere in Europe or just explain what is going on in the film... you know your in for a bad time. The idea was interesting just poorly done.

Cinema Diary for 2011
The Year of The Rabbit






This is a scrapbook of ideas, impressions and information about the movies I watch. It is basic, rough and raw in an effort to expand my personal viewing experiences. This is a creative exercise not a critical one. I hope you enjoy.

You're welcome for Duel! And thank you for all the links to my lists that include it. :)

Lots of these I need to check out still, so perhaps I'll be thanking you for this list in the near future.

While I won't be seeing War Horse anytime soon, it looks like I too should stop procrastinating with Duel.

Lots of other stuff I should look into. But happy enough to see that I can continue ignoring I Am Love.

Glad you made this list happen! And love the icons!
