Well done! I'm afraid this gimmick will get rather repetitive but you definitely pulled it off.

Funny fact : If I'm not mistaken, David Lynch has been mentionned on ALL the lists! Not bad, ain't it ?
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Jul 11 15:49
Hieno lista! Itse unohdin omalta listalta totaalisesti noi elokuva pahikset vaikka sinne kuuluisivatkin :)
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Jul 11 17:24
Awesome! So glad to see love for Gilliam and Groucho on here.
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Jul 12 3:40
You've got great taste! Well done.

@DeathWish, I'm not sure everybody love David Lynch but he is indeed pretty amazing.
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Jul 12 17:10
Hieno lista! Imartelevaa, että mun idea leviää. On myös mielenkiintoista seurata, kuinka erilaisista jutuista ihmiset innostuu. "To be the only paying customer in a movie theater." - tapahtuuko tätä muuten useinkin? Itse en nimittäin kuin kerran ole ollut tyhjässä salissa ja sekin oli tosiaan Turkissa.
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Jul 12 19:50
Thank you everybody for voting! I think it is possible to make more of these lists, because movies have so many qualities to love.

Kiitos eleonora kehaisusta. Ei ole tullut aiemmin mieleen itsellä tällaista listaa tehdä, vaikka olen myös Manhattanin katsonut muutamaan otteeseen ja lukenut hiukan vastaavanlaisia listauksia.

Olen melko laiska vääntämään listoja ja todella perusjuttuja on tullut tehtyä. Tästä ideasta teki hienon se, että oli mahdollista poimia todella erilaisia asioita mukaan listalle. Ytimekäs esittely asiasta, kuvalla tai videolla maustettuna, huokuu elokuvan tarjoamaa nautintoa. Tämä tekee näistä listoista hienoja ja vastustamattomia.

Mitä tulee yksin salissa istumiseen, niin melko pienellä Finnkino-paikkakunnalla on tämä tullut koettua muutamaan otteeseen. Elokuvat ovat yleensä olleet sellaisia, että ensi-ilta on jo ollut aiemmin ja viimein saatu kopio paikkakunnalle tai sitten elokuvan esitysaika ollut liian myöhäinen. Lähtökohtaisesti toki sellaiset elokuvat kuin Captain Abu Raed tai Tales from the Golden Age eivät hirveitä massoja muutenkaan vedä. Onhan siinä oma tunnelmansa kun yksin istuu tukemassa maailmanelokuvaa :D
