I don't know if The Tree of Life really needed a release considering that it already has a blu-ray copy with great visual and sound quality, but I don't really care. It's a masterpiece.

The Criterion release is a different cut that's 50 minutes longer than the previous Blu-ray.

Hit the B&N sale today, and got Night of the Hunter for $25. It's currently at $75 on Amazon so I snatched it.

Same. Luckily, it drops around the same time as the next Criterion sale and I may be able to stack another Black Friday coupon on it like I did to get the Zatoichi set for $75.

Agreed. I'm especially happy that I haven't upgraded many of my Bergman's to Blu. I think only that will be the double dip. The rest are dvd and non-Criterion.

If each film were sold for $20, it would come.out over $600. It's practically a steal.

I've bookmarked the Bergman, the Apu Trilogy, and Night of the Hunter for potential snags during the 50% sales.

Might not convince myself that I could afford the Bergman when the next half-off sale comes around. Would be loathe to spend the regular price in between sales. But hell, I spent that much on a Hitchcock collection a few years ago that I could have gotten for 25% of the price I paid, if I'd waited two years. 8-)

For me Some Like It Hot is one of the rare movies on pretty much all Greatest Movie lists that I don't like. It is in the company of Shawshank and Gone With the Wind when it comes to films that I don't hate, but do nothing for me, regardless of their esteem.

It doesn't help that I'm no great fan of Monroe (I think she is mostly terrible, with very few exceptions) and Tony Curtis' Cary Grant impersonation grows tiring after about zero seconds. And he just keeps doing it.

The release of Magnificent Ambersons is super exciting though

Some Like It Hot is OK. Never a favorite of mine. Now The Misfits. That's probably Monroe's best role by far.

Out of curiosity, why didn't this movie do much for you?

This is the only Monroe film I've seen, so I don't know whether she did good in her other movies. However, I liked her performance here, because she sounded quite charismatic with a slight undercurrent of stupidity. I thought this was a great blend for the character she played. As for the rest of the film, while Spats Columbo wasn't onscreen that much, I think the greatness came from the complications which Joe and Jerry's plan caused. This led to multiple humorous moments. I also felt its resolution was surprising. Once I started to figure out where the movie was going to go near the middle, the movie had a couple twists and went in a different direction than what I expected.

I still love Shawshank, but not as much as I did a couple years ago. I'm starting to feel like it works more as a gateway film than a legitimate masterpiece (along with Fight Club and American History X). I've never seen Gone With the Wind, but I'm hesitant to as I've heard mostly negative opinions about it on this site.

I haven't seen her in hardly anything either, but she was effective as the naive, caught-in-the-middle mistress in The Asphalt Jungle, which is one of my favorite old-school noirs, and one of my favorite movies, period; check it out sometime!

I don't honestly have any great reason for not liking Hot other than I don't think it's funny and it just doesn't work for me. As for Monroe's performance, for me it has always felt that she is half in the bag in most scenes and phoning it in, which is not something that works in comedy when you sense the tragedy of the personal life of the actor. It is a great looking film, and I don't begrudge anyone for liking it, but after three viewings of it, it never leaves me with much more than a shrug.

Shawshank, Fight Club and X are all films that are probably fair to call gateway films to better things. I don't think any of them are particularly great, but they all certainly have worthwhile virtues. Don't avoid Gone With the Wind because of what you've heard on these forums though. I kinda hate it, and so do many others, but it is definitely something worth watching, even if you too ultimately agree that it is piss.

I can't express how much I hate hot weather. Anything above about 25 degrees (I have no idea what that is in Fahrenheit, but I know it isn't much) almost makes me crawl out of my skin.

Too cool for fahrenheit, huh?

I would say that 25 degrees (about 77 fahrenheit) is about perfect for outside weather. I get antsy with anything over 30 degrees. This summer, we've had multiple days in the 36-39 range. Fuck that. There's only so many clothes that you can take off, and my AC bill has topped my internet bill.

I also suffer from SAD (SAD!), so I cannot deal with Canadian winters at all. The greyness.

The beauty of Torontonian weather is you get the best of both worlds, blistering summers, and cryogenic winters. I prefer the later. I get the SAD's too, but they are much preferable when I can bury myself in the snow than melt on the asphalt.

One of the few victories in my life is I got air conditioning in my apartment, and the rent is all inclusive. I'm not going to say I abuse this privilege, but I totally do.

I heard a couple other users here bring up how Monroe's suicide hangs on this movie for them. I can understand that criticism, but it never weakened this film for me, personally. I'm pretty sure my parents own Gone With the Wind, so I might try to watch it before I go off to college.

I typically prefer warm weather, because nothing beats biking for me. I know they have equipment for you to do it indoors at any rec center, but it's just not the same as being outdoors for me.
