Other Movies Seen By This Director (0)
|01.28.08||Netflix|| It's kind of a shame that I didn't have this journal going in highschool or college. It'd be cool to go back and read my first thoughts on the "classic" films and my going through the AFI Top 100 and the roots of my noir love and all that. If I had all of that previous info in here, this wouldn't have to be the first time I have to write that I don't like the Marx brothers. Whatever the reason... not a fan. I guess I must've enqueued this one because i hadn't seen it and it gets mentioned as a "classic" and all that. I dunno. I started watching not expecting much different (since all the Marx brothers movies I have seen all run together in my mind) and ended up mostly sitting through it and doing facebook movie quizzes.|
It's funny. When I was in college I had a roomate that used to buy and read all these classic books like Moby Dick and Siddhartha and I used to criticize him for reading books he didn't like just because he was supposed to like him. Well, this isn't the first time I've watched something just to have seen it so Mike, sorry for making fun of you behind your back for reading books you knew you weren't going to like. I now see why you did it.
And I still don't like Brian De Palma.
