Anonymous asked: top ten favorite movies?
Oh. My. Jebus. That’s hard. Hold on.
Looking through my rated Netflix films.
I PROBABLY MISSED A WHOLE LOTTA STUFF!!!!
I love No Country for Old Men. Coen Bros. movies in general. The Big Lebowski is a classic. Buscemi is so bug-eyed and adorable.
I love Tarantino movies. Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs, etc.Cannot decide which of his I like more, but his movies are superbly satisfying.
The Godfather Pt. II has Robert De Niro who’s badass. Great film. He’s also in Raging Bull and Taxi Driver which are amazing, if unsettling.
Jumping to Trainspotting. It was great.
LOVE Pixar. Their better films have made me cry. Toy Story 3, UP come to mind. Finding Nemo and Monster’s Inc. are great too, but everyone’s seen those. Gotta go back and watch The Incredibles.
I have seen Rocky Horror Picture Show at La Paloma theater twice (or three times) and it didn’t appeal to me, but you CANNOT NOT love Tim Curry. Clue is an amazing and, I want to say, underrated film. He’s in it. He’s great. Watch it. It’s on Netflix. I did a post on it. Check out some of the links on the left side for some of my Netflix suggestions.
Bill Murray is ALL the positive adjectives I’ve used so far, and then some. Love Lost in Translation. Aaaand he’s worked with another one of my favorite directors, Wes Anderson.
You gotta see Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore, The Life Aquatic, Darjeeling Ltd., Fantastic Mr. Fox, etc.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a classic. So is the Breakfast Club, and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Such a particular feeling those 80’s movie evoke.
There Will Be Blood, watch it. Life-changer. Drink it up.
Pan’s Labyrinth. Yes.
Do Ken Burns documentaries count? Watch those.
Watch all the WW2 stuff. The Pianist and Saving Private Ryan are what I watched a while ago. There’s a billion more good movies made about the era.
Had you asked me 5 years ago, I might have said an original trilogy Star Wars movie. I AM ASHAMED to say that they have lost their status as my favorite films, but they will always have a place in my heart.
Just saw I 5-starred City of God. YES. INCREDIBLE movie.
Love Children of Men. Good movement to that film.
The Graduate is really really really good. No relation to Children of Men.
Fight Club, of course.
Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind is an amazing movie to see for the first time. Or the second or third. But I still wish I could watch it again, like new, like I had my mind erased.
The Lives of Others blew me away. Check that out. Ulrich Mühe’s performance made me cry… Like all things I love.
I don’t even want to get started with random documentaries I love. I guess I’ll just keep it to Ken Burns.
Gosh dang. I’ll try and arrange some sort of top 10. Thanks for asking. This’ll do for tonight I think.

Literally the ground.

Someone trying to sell you something.
A horrifically gory still from an obscure “foreign film”.

We still probably can be. Invite me to something… Or just call me or something.

This is not referring to anyone in particular, in fact, I can’t think of anyone that this relates to, so do not take this personally. Or do, I guess, if you really want to.
It’s my opinion that you should always try and say thank you. Don’t stress out about it, of course, but whenever possible say “Thank you.” And mean it too.
It’s an important thing to let people know that you are grateful, that you noticed what they did. To feel noticed and acknowledged is important. That’s what people want, I think, on their worst days. Or that’s just me.
Some of the coolest people are terrible at saying thank you though. It just slips their mind. It’s not out of disrespect, it’s probably more out of a focus. Forward thinking, “onto the next thing”. Using the example of a person receiving a free ride, it’s if a massive gust of wind picked them up from the ground and landed them at where they wanted to go and they have nothing to say about it other than maybe “Oh, I’m here. Cool”, as if everything that’s done for them happens by chance.
I’ve come into contact with people like that. And they are cool. Not all of them fit that exact description.
Others are just impolite assholes.
Politeness is another boring topic I won’t get into, but it’ll probably serve you and others well if you mind your P-leases and thank-Qs.
Remembering to say thanks is a good exercise because it makes you mindful that you did not do it on your own. Others helped you get to where you are. You did not do it alone.

Can a film photographer explain this to me?
