I saw the Maltese Falcon several weeks ago, and thought I added it to the list, but apparently I forgot. I was writing a paper comparing it with the original serial, and I've already talked about it in this thread, so there's not much more to say.

I watched Starship Troopers again, this time with the writer and director commentary. A rather enlightening, and entertaining track, I thought. I still really like the movie.

Saw Green Zone in the theatre tonight. It was more Bourne and less United 93, and I wanted it to be the other way around, but it was still a well made action picture set during the early stages of the Iraq War. I gave The Hurt Locker an A- two months ago. Having read several articles taking it apart for its many errors, I'd probably lower that to a B now. Green Zone is about as good, and about as accurate (and more political). Neither film is as good as David Simon's Generation Kill miniseries, though.

It's been a long time since I've seen High Noon. I wonder if it holds up?
