Want to Watch


 

Counting down my 20 favorite films of 2007.

There are dozens of films I'd happily sit down with in any given year, but the movies in the Want to Want section are most firmly on my radar.

I was a little disappointed by Gran Torino. A good movie but not great. To see Clint in a movie is quite nice but it is not enough for me. Sorry...

The Brothers Bloom is one I may need to rewatch - I saw it one time, and I just didn't like it as much as Brick, even though I guess they're not exactly "comparable" movies. Oh, and I enjoyed What Doesn't Kill You MUCH more than I expected, and was surprised that the movie got so little exposure upon release. I had to wait for the DVD to be able to see it. Transsiberian is a top-notch thriller and I'm glad you found space for it here. And Get Smart is an absolute guilty pleasure of mine. Slumdog Millionaire was very good, but you're correct that it doesn't deserve being named the best of that particular year. Still, it almost made my list.

Haha, well, Haneke actually directed the American movie as well, so chances are that if you didn't like the American version, you won't like the original either. The two films are basically identical, the only differences being that the first one has different actors and that you have to read subtitles, of course. If the two movies are exactly the same, that may lead some people (especially those who don't like Funny Games, like you) to ask why an American remake was needed. Haneke stated that it was because the movie's criticism was aimed at the mainstream moviegoing audiences of the U.S... but that, of course, begs the question of why the American version was only released in arthouse indie theaters. Still, it's just one of those perverse movies I like a lot. :)

Looks like jaytoast & I have encouraged you to check out Ip Man...nice. :)

A few of these I've never heard of, so if I come across them I'll give them a look.

Seems like we disagree on some here, as I thought The Brothers Bloom, Martyrs, Let the Right One In and Slumdog Millionaire were just decent films. And I didn't particularly care for Hunger and The Spirit. :P

But I'm thrilled to see Gran Torino and In Bruges here!
