I love that movie! Got to see it at the cinema a few years back and I still laughed my ass off.

Seeing Machete tonight, as long as Lindsay Lohan's character meets a quick and violent death I'll leave satisfied.

Eric has inspired me to download the MP collection.

I've only ever seen the holy grail, and that was when I was 14. It made me laugh loads and I discussed it with people the next day in school.

I need to see Life of Brian and the other one.

I do not watch films often, but this guy makes me throw away my pencils/brushes . Draws/paints completely from memory without any sort of reference?! His imagination must be as vivid as vivid can get! Just an informative documentary of course, not a cinematic masterpiece.

Not for one second does he hesitate and think "Damn, I'm in a pretty bad situation. What if I never get to see my loved ones again?". It's the same monotonous, emotionless expressions and methodology that are more reminiscient of a machine than a human being.
Nice flick a friday evening but far from the masterpiece it is sometimes portrayed as.
I have to say, I appreciate your nice thorough review of the show, but I definitely disagree with you.

I felt the villian role was well executed. People are 'just evil' sometimes. Would you have been happier if they included the usual sob story of an abused childhood in which made him evil? I think not.

and this

He does this throughout the entire movie. Its pretty much WHAT the movie is about. How quickly you can get into a bad situation. The scene the sticks out in my mind the most is when he goes back to give the Mexican water and he sees the lights come over the hill.

That's an F & not an I as in Frazetta (looks confusing), and are you really glad that I told you this?

Thanks for posting this! I love documentaries on art movements and such and never knew this film existed until now.

I liked Holy Grail more, but Life of Brian did have its great moments (hence the cheese makers comment). It was a bit long though... like 3 hours? I was I imagining things?

Man, Paul Thomas Anderson really can direct. And the writing ain't half bad too, good film. All the ingredients a rom-com has but with a quirky, bizarre edge. If PTA releases a couple more solid films, I may have to consider him as a favourite director. He's yet to have a flop.
