What is that first one? A porno? "Altered States" is the next movie I'm going to watch. Your rating makes me optimistic. The last three movies I watched were "The Last Temptation of Christ", "The Sting", and "Carnal Knowledge". They were all very good, but "The Last Temptation of Christ" was a little too long. I liked it a lot at the start...I really appreciated its depiction of Jesus as a soft-spoken man who tried his damnedest to reason with everyone and avoid violence, but his transformation to a much more aggressive person and the crazy hallucinatory fantasies towards the end confused me and diminished my interest in the movie a bit. It was still solid overall and I'm glad I watched it, but it's my least favourite of the Scorsese movies I've seen.

It's always nice to see someone discovering Woody Allen's movies. He's my favourite director. I set aside some time every year to see some of his movies that I've never seen before (usually towards the end) as a special occasion. I recommend checking out "Crimes and Misdemeanors" and "Hannah and Her Sisters" next. They are my favourites after the two that have been mentioned. "Sleeper", "The Purple Rose of Cairo", and "Love and Death" are terrific too.

Jeez, Harvey! 55 in two months? I've been proud of myself for squeezing 60 into a year for the past few years! I figure even 52 in a year is a lot, since it would mean one movie a week, and that's more than a lot of people would watch. You are certainly prolific when it comes to moviewatching. I only go to the theatre about 6 times a year because there are so many old movies I want to see as I hope to see every classic ever made!
