I am proud to say that I am the first to add a Jenna Fischer directed film to the trends.

Her conquest to the top of the directors list has begun.

It's #1 in total views but #27 on the trends thing. Maybe I should take my new DVD for a spin, see if that brings it back.

Added my recent watches.

Good to see My Winnipeg up there. Also, Dogtooth in the top three!

Dune is the most boring film I've ever witnessed, and Zardoz was engrossing. Strange.

There is nothing engrossing about Zardoz but for Connery's thigh highs.

Partially. I spotted it randomly on netflix and was all like "ohai john boorman this is probably cool" and started it then ribbon was all like 'ohai i think trip said he likes that' so we were both then all like 'ohai i guess we make the best decisions then huh' then had sex furiously.

Haha, I love that my friends and I catapulted Frankenstein into the top 25 so suddenly.

Now they'd better start posting, Goddammit. D:<

I think the Hide Recent filter should hide 2009 as well as 2010. Maybe even further years back.

That is such a well implemented thing you've got there. And it looks nice as well. Anyway, I added Enter the Void, as I just watched that last night. I was going to watch Play Time today, but my internet connection saw fit to ruining the streaming quality on Netflix. Bummer.

I watched it yesterday morning. The more I think about it the more I like it. The way it was structured was most impressive. Kind of like an anti-biopic. The painting of the Giraffe has me thinking a lot and the symbolism behind it, as it's shown several times throughout the film. I saved it to watch again. The wedding scene is my favorite at this time:
The whole time everyone is concentrated on everything except Nikolai, the three men talking arguing, the dancers, even the people sitting at the table with him, until at the very end he slowly gets up and walks away. The whole time all I felt was the isolation and fear inside this man. A little later his friend asks him why and he says 'I don't want to be shackled down'.
That line hit me the most and summed up the film for me, the person, the angst and most of all:
The only girl he ever loved
Impressive stuff.

Ask Will Billyu

If you have a question that you don't know the answer to, just write it here for Will Billyu!
Dear Will,

When I watch something like "MST3K: Bride of the Monster," I don't bother entering it in Corrierino Trends. Am I missing a good bet?

My thinking leads me to believe that The End of St. Petersburg and October: Ten Days that Shook the World should be credited to Vsevolod Pudovkin and Sergei M. Eisenstein, respectively, as opposed to the way IMDb has them:

The End of St. Petersburg (Vsevolod Pudovkin, Mikhail Doller)
Ten Days That Shook the World (Grigori Aleksandrov, Sergei M. Eisenstein)

Yes?

Aleksandrov did collaborate with Eisenstein, so I don't see the contradiction.

This is true but Eisenstein, to my understanding anyway, was the key creative force behind October, and for the purpose of this feature having Aleksandrov's name next to his for the one title deprives Eisenstein of additional love on the director list. But then, maybe Aleksandrov's involvement is greater than I realize.

After consideration, I retract - just an "evil" of the system, I suppose, that collaborations don't get credited in this manner to each respective creator.

I post again, however, as I have been watching a handful of shorts over the past 24 hours... and this one, a 1932 piece, shows up as having been made in the year zero.

Every day I check if any films are missing the year or director and correct it myself.

But I'm not going to go through thousands of films and decide who I think deserves to be credited.

Just added Twin Peaks-Pilot to the list after watching it. Hope Bear doesn't mind that I added a tv episode. It's Twin Peaks so it deserves it though.

It's a mysterious formula based on number of views and how recent the views are.
