The 100… Part 8

 

The 100

The 100

You’ve seen all these must see movie lists that clutter up your newsfeed on the Facebooks and other pages on the interwebs. I know I’ve seen a ton of them. Usually the parenthetical to the title of the piece is ‘[Insert number of movies here] you need to see before you die’. The problem I have with the vast majority of these lists is that they are compiled by film school snobs who think French new wave or some other pretentious crap is the bee’s knees.

Where are the lists for the hard working masses? Where are the lists for nerds who are trying to teach their nerdlings about the wonderful world of movies? Where are the lists for the hard working non-nerdy masses who happen to be raising a young, enthusiastic nerdling?

The answer to those questions ladies and gentlemen is right here. I am going to gather together a list of 100 movies that you don’t necessarily HAVE to see before you shuffle off this mortal coil, but rather a list of 100 movies that should be seen to further broaden one’s soul. Some maybe obvious and I’m sure some you won’t have heard of, but all will be worth it. I’m just here to help.

These will be in no particular order and they won’t be numbered (Why number them if they are being counted down and you already know there’s going to a total of 100) and broken down into ten easy to digest segments. So let’s keep going with the eigth of ten…

Random Movie Day 6: Catching Up

 

Random Movie Day

Random Movie Day

I have so many TV shows that I keep up with (I would tell you how many but the number might frighten some of you) that I have been falling behind on my movie watching. The only movie I have had a chance to see in the theater since the summer was ’47 Ronin’. That was a very pretty movie; well shot and choreographed. I would say check it out if those movies are for you.

With ’47 Ronin’ aside there are a ton of movies I need/want to see. So I went to the local video store (yes they do still exist) and rented a few that caught my eye. And by few I rented 8… the other two I watched On Demand. I didn’t watch all ten in one day, just six of them. Two I had watched a few days prior and the other two I watched the next day after the marathon session.

Here are those 10 films and my thoughts:

Red Cliff

A few days ago I was listening to some pretty epic power metal, the likes of which can be heard with Blind Guardian or Hammerfall, and I decided that I haven’t watched a good epic film in a long while.  So I went to my film collection and picked out “Red Cliff”, a 2008 John Woo film based off the Battle of Red Cliffs (208 C.E.-209 C.E.). Now with this there were two different releases, the Chinese release that was two parts and runs a total of 288 minutes (over 4 and ½ hours) and the US release which was cut down by two hours.  I happen to own the Chinese release and have yet to watch the US version.
