was cajoled into watching some chop socky nonsense, Five Deadly Venoms which is apparently a cult classic. didnt seem any better or worse than 100 others.
fortunately i had The Hidden Fortress which cleansed the palette afterwords.
if you've seen the incredibles, this is pretty funny
just watched Avenue Montaigne. light fare but pleasant and ultimately satisfying.
eastwoods Unforgiven last night. that is all.
afi updated its top 100 american films last year. interesting to see what rises and falls in their esteem. spielberg is a little overrepresented in my estimation. hard to see shindlers list cracking my top 100 much less the top 10. cant believe The Third Man, Giant and A Place in the Sun gets short shrift for the likes of The Shawshank Redemption Titanic The Sixth Sense and Toy Story. conversely nice to see Nashville, Sunrise The Last Picture Show and Swing Time crack the list.
