That was a long time ago, so it seems. I now have some 30, 40 movies that I love so much I wouldn't pick favourites, though at gunpoint I'd say Karakter.
-Karakter (Dutch book-to-film, drama)
-Knetter (Dutch children's film I like to call my biopic)
-Fanfare (Dutch comedy)
-Glas (Dutch documentary)
-Father & Daughter (Dutch animated short)
-Lola Rennt (Run Lola Run)
-Der Untergang
-Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain
-Delicatessen (French black comedy)
-Un Long Dimanche Des Fiançailles (French drama)
-La Cage Aux Folles (original French/Italian comedy)
-A Fistful Of Dollars
-For A Few Dollars More
-The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
-Once Upon A Time In The West
-Tales From Earthsea (Japanese animation)
-Dr Strangelove
-The Shining
-Full Metal Jacket
-Lolita
-Barry Lyndon
-2001: A Space Odyssey
-A Clockwork Orange
-Rocky Horror Picture Show
-Clue
-200 Motels
-The Great Dictator
-Psycho
-Tod Browning's Freaks
-The Music Box (Laurel & Hardy short)
-My Fair Lady
-Goldfinger
-People vs Larry Flynt
-South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut
-Memento
-Destino (Dali/Disney animated short)

Cats is now off the list: I realized I never watched it in full. That's just too much.


I see Fanfare (1958) is in your favo's. A hit in the Dutch cinema's. The late Bert Haanstra had a very typical way of looking at things. His documentary Glass won an oscar.
Why do I tell you this. You will get the opportunity to see for yourself in our Theatre on short notice.
I have the Englisch subs an AVI copi of the movie.
First thing to do is to get the both files syncronised, then Compile it to flv. If you do not have time to watch online. Right click and save target.

Just saw the 1948 Three Musketeers, with Gene Kelly as d'Artagnan. Also has Vincent Price as Richelieu, but that part seems more to be an afterthought. Kelly is the star! He's awesome!

Just watched Winter's Bone. It was okay, I guess.

Singin' In The Rain. I do have to try not to become a Gene Kelly fan... with him, Michael York, Tim Curry and John Inman, life is just too short. :)

Last watch: The Three Musketeers (1973). It's interesting to compare the three films I've seen with the book, which I also read recently.

1948:
Cast: Gene Kelly ('d Artagnan), Lana Clarkson (De Winter), Vincent Price (Richelieu)
Quote: Athos: "This is no time for composing letters or looking happy.
Music: Chaikovsky stock. Romeo & Juliet in the love scenes.
Book tinkering: Some: Richelieu was not allowed to be called "cardinal". All references to him being a cardinal had to be cut out. Also, Mme Bonacieux was the cousin of the landlord, not the wife. 1948 standards. Few minor alterations, but there are as many casualties as there are in the book.
Stunts: Gene Kelly's legwork.
Looks: A bit fake and colours seem a bit too happy.
Nature: starts off as a low-brow comedy, moves on to become highly tragic.
Enjoyment: Gene Kelly. Gene. Kelly. He's utterly awesome.

1973
Cast: Michael York (d'Artagnan), Faye Dunaway (De Winter), Charlton Heston (De Richelieu)
Quote: Athos: You will find, young man, that the future looks rosiest through the bottom of a glass.
Music: Michel Legrand. Music is subdued at a lot of scenes, but of high quality.
Book tinkering: The Three Musketeers only follows the first half of the book, up to the point the diamonds are restored and d'Artagnan becomes a musketeer. Although the storyline is kept decently intact, the characters are all depicted as bumbling, for comic value.
The film was cut in two, which posed legal difficulties and led to the Salkind Clause.
Stunts: Some. Fencing is often fought more with other props than with the swords.
Looks: A bit gritty, but convincing.
Mood: Slapstick comedy throughout.
Enjoyment: Michael York, the book wheel, the falcons...

1993
Cast: Chris o'Donnell (d'Artagnan), Rebecca De Mornay (De Winter), Tim Curry (Richelieu)
Quote: De Winter (to Richelieu): And with a flick of my wrist, I could change your religion.
Music: Michael Kamen presents a present but quality score.
Book tinkering: Book? What book?
Stunts: Exploding carriages.
Looks: Blue guys vs red guys.
Mood: action comedy with one-liners.
Enjoyment: besides music and Curry, none.

There'll be a new Miyazaki out soon... It'll be called The Wind Rises. This might be my last chance to see a Miyazaki in cinema, and I intend to jump on it. It'll be his final feature though. :(

Got Princess Mononoke for St Nicholas. It's a lot grittier than the other Miyazaki's I've seen yet, darker, bloodier and more violent, but it's a very interesting movie with beautiful music.

A new film added to my grand list is the wonderful drama/black comedy mix called Departures, or Okuribito. Won an Oscar in 2009.

A few months ago, my father and I were hiding at a roofed bench in the cemetery after visiting grandma. There was a funeral going on and this beautiful music came out the building. I'd resolved to remember that tune forever.
And failed after two minutes.

Then they played it again, and I made sure I'd never forget. I even attempted to play it at home. But after a few weeks it just slid to the back of my head.

And then I heard it on Okuribito. After a small search I found it's by the same Joe Hisaishi who makes the utterly awesome music of the Miyazaki films I adore so much.

No cursing please... :) I think that's the Lou Reed-track they played at Theo van Gogh's funeral (Dutch movie director (yes, related to that guy) who was brutally slaughtered by a muslim extremist).
