    SVT and I had a day of movies, we saw:

    Voyage of Time: IMAX Experience (Malick, 2016) Holy shit!
    Julieta (Almodovar, 2016) @Yossarian I know you've seen this would love to hear your thoughts
    L'Argent (Bresson, 1983) Felt let down by this. V austere film making but enjoyable. Need to read the Tolstoy it's based off of.
    The Shooting (Hellman, 1966) Need to see Two Lane Blacktop stat as this movie was so good

    julieta was great. the only other almodovar i'd seen previously was ''the skin i live in'' (which is also great), so i didn't really know what to expect. but this was really good. the plot was really bizarre and weird, i loved it. the costumes/set designs were really awesome as well, love those european styles.

    you seen any other almodovars? any recs?

    I've only seen The Skin I Live In and All About My Mother. I would def rec AAMY for similar cinematography to Julieta. I'd also say they do share a lot of similarities w/r/t the way the story is told. A very like private universe thing going on. Almodovar is always guy that is on my to see more of list but I never get around to it. Really glad I was able to catch Julieta. Wasn't like 100% sold on the ending tho. Not that movies need a completely closed ending but it seemed kind of undeserved?

    I don't often chime in here with my movie thoughts but I am an avid cinephile and figured I would share my Top 10 of 2016 list in here as it is more or less finalized. I've watched 91 movies from last year thus far and while I will certainly see more I don't expect any of them to crack my upper tier which has remained largely unchanged since November.

    2. Kubo and the Two Strings

    You too? Yeah, that flick has a little bit of everything. One of my all-time favorites now.

    @hutz

    Looking through the thread, I'm genuinely really fuckin' impressed with how you're able to watch so many movies. I get home from work at I'd be exhausted; maybe I'd sit through a film or one or two episodes of television at most (on a good day too).

    And by the way, where are you finding these titles to watch? I've not heard of 95% of them and I'm curious at how you're making these selections.

    breaking the "quoting post above yours" rule cuz rebel

    I watch all the movies listed here on TCM (Turner Classic Movies) on channel 57 (Rogers) or channel 1338 (Bell)
    they release their schedule about 2-3 months ahead so i pick out ones that sound interesting or have heard good things about
    I'm on pace for a movie a day so far this year (yay) but I do watch more on days off and often feel too exhausted on long work days

    while next month is crazy busy (30 movies!) most months only have around 10 to 15 so it's fairly manageable for me
    I also don't have a life

    you should join us in our film nerdery. there's some great stuff out there

    Currently on pace for a movie a day as well and what does it for me is that I'll watch 3-4 movies in a day if I'm feeling up to it and as long as you're changing the types of movies you're watching (balancing say a difficult foreign film with a breezy comedy ) it can be easy. Also it doesn't hurt my amount that I hit up the cinema once a week at least and that there's a film festival in September near where I live where I'll watch like 40 movies in a 10 day period.

    hutz along with a couple others use the site criticker to rank and sort movies and the site helps you find movies to watch. Plus you can follow people and see what they watch to get rec's

    well @parklife i've seen almost all my may/june (almost) movies so i'll give some thoughts
    une chambre un ville - more singing all the dialogue?!fun the first time, this time less so. no characters to root for. just dragged
    sweet revenge - middling 70's sleeper. worth a watch
    the lovers - pretty great debut from malle. authentically erotic. a lot like jules and jim
    the fire within - another great malle film about a suicidal recovering alcoholic. very talky but in a good way
    model shop - not great but the LA location photography is a real time capsule
    don't make waves - rather silly tony curtis vehicle. cardinale and tate are gorgeous tho
    belle de jour - interesting tale. deneuve is fantastic as usual
    triple cross - the best of the spy movies of the sixties i've seen. plummer and courtenay make the picture
    eraserhead - fucking weird
    a brighter summer day - very long but enjoyable. the colour was great
    corvette summer - another middling 70's sleeper. harmless fun
    young runaways - dopey 60's cautionary tale. mostly notable for richard dreyfuss' appearance
    the muthers - very low budget was a little too cheap for my tastes but the acting wasn't as atrocious as one would expect
    tie me up! tie me down! - very odd movie in a similar vein as something wild (1961 not 1986). intriguing
    barrios altos - the ending undoes pretty much the whole movie which would piss me off except the rest wasn't that great
    man with the golden arm - not quite as edgy as i thought it would be but seeing mcgavin as a villain was refreshing
    cours du soir - cute playtime-era short from tati
    the connection - stagey mockumentary about jazz band waiting for their fix. it was different i'll give it that
    boy - fine little movie about a con artist father teaching his very young son the game as they avoid the cops. worth a look
    I know where I'm going! - not quite as good as i thought it would be. A Canterbury Tale which I saw right after was much better
    king rat - amazing POW film. Denholm Elliott stands out in a perfect cast
    in a lonely place - alright but kinda saw the ending coming a mile away which detracted from my enjoyment
    punk vacation - pretty stupid
    killer party - started well with double fakeoutbut turned generic by the second half
    bonjour tristesse - splashy romance with niven/kerr but both were evenbetter in separate tables. downbeat ending
    chungking express - very thoughtful. preferred the second half over the first
    la notti blanches - haven't seen yet will update later
    gaslight (1940) - haven't seen yet will update later
    weekend - famous tracking shot is amazing. second half is pretty provocative
    yoyo - starts off slowly but rewarding overall
    the street with no name - solid 40's crime movie. widmark could make anything worth watching
    always - flawed but dreyfuss, hunter, goodman and hepburn all deliver the goods
    hide in plain sight - caan makes this worth watching
    two for the road - hepburn and finney are perfect and the non-linear narrative works really well
    the picasso summer - this one didn't show up. one of the sacrifices of living in canada i guess

    i just watched always for the first time a couple weeks ago (blu-ray looks awful, by the way). it was only movie in the spielberg director's collection that i hadn't seen yet and i don't even know if i liked it, haha. it felt like three different movies cut into one. kind of want to revisit it already, though. have you seen a guy named joe?

    @Shaunbadia and I just saw Some Like It Hot on the big screen tonight. I've seen it dozens of times, it's a favourite of mine, but I've never seen it at the movies before. Shaun had never seen it at all. It was a totally different experience seeing it on the big screen, and I'm already planning on seeing the next classic they play in August (North By Northwest, which I actually have not seen).
