Ko to tamo peva is probably the most quoted film in ex-yu region. So many glorious lines. Maratonci is not much worse, I hope you'll like it more (I'm not very optimistic though.

Sholay is the best, but only by a hair, a couple of fun Westerny sequence keep it from being a complete waste of time

Haven't seen that and don't want to, but I found the sequel (I guess), Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006) interesting because Gandhi's ghost was a main character.

That is what I hated beyond anything about that film. On top of being an insanely stupid, borderline dangerous demagogical film, it was also Ghandixploitation. Shame on all the assholes involved!!!

Alright, I guess I'll continue it now. I can't imagine it getting much worse than this. Maybe soon this thread will be like in The Video Diary of Ricardo Lopez where you'll just see me slowly turn insane.

It actually looks good. Most of the novels I read is about S&M or just really fucked up fetishes. Would be nice to see a film about the same topic.

Finished off the IMDB war list with Tae Guk Gi. Not sure why I keep being drawn to these big Korean blockbusters, I always know in advance that I'm going to hate the schmaltz. Yet I watched it anyway.

On the FESPACO list:

1. Heremakono (2002) - My hope was huge but I was disappointed as I wasn't able to care about the movie.
2. Drum (2004) - A good movie about apartheid and the struggle of a black journalist to show the truth. I also liked the fact that all white men wasn't racists on the contrary of several films in that FESPACO list (Pièces d'identités or Sarraounia)
3. Teza (2008) - Meh. I've already forgotten almost the whole movie.
4. Pégase (2010) - A good cinematography but a really messed up script.

So, now, I just need to watch Aujourd'hui (2013) and as it isn't available now, I guess our dear host, Kaspar, will let me work on another list. Can I? I swear I will watch Aujourd'hui when it will be avaible, parole de scout.

The two things I'm currently working (rather crawling) on are "Movies with 10+ lists" and IMDb decades (1920s-2000s). So I'm signing up here to complete the decade lists.

Btw, is it possible to get a Plat in 1910s? Or at least Gold?

PLATINUM on IMDB 1930s.

I don't generally work on IMDB lists, but I've been trying to complete 20s-60s, as these seem pretty much stable and mafia free. only got the 20s remaining now (4 to go).

Yeah up till the 60's those lists are not bad at all and worth finishing. The Turkish invasion in the 70's ruined that trend though.

3. Men in War (1957) Anthony Mann (8/10) (Have You Seen?... Yes, David, I've seen them all.)

Image

Well this concludes my Have you Seen? journey. I am now officially the first ICMer to have finished David Thompson's list *pats himself on the back*. I am now moving on to 1001 Movies which I have finished a number of times now.

Men in War was a masterfully well directed film. The last 20 minutes or so were perfect. The film was a breath of unsentimental fresh air for the most part. Austere, bleak, almost cynical, the film was spoiled only by a couple of mildly sentimental moments that would be perfectly acceptable and actually quite normal in most movies, but because of the overall tone of the film stuck out like a sore thumb.

Robert Ryan was great as usual, but it's Aldo Ray who really shines here in one of his very best roles.

1.Have You Seen List:
1. Fröken Julie (1951) Alf Sjöberg (7/10)
2. Sait-on Jamais... (1957) Roger Vadim (6/10)
3. Men in War (1957) Anthony Mann (8/10) [/spoiler]

Congratulations, you! That's no mean feat, and it sounds like you picked a nice one to end on. (Of course, I'd probably say that about any film with Robert Ryan. Not all of his films are gold, but he's one consistent guy.)

Eeew, no, I don't want that image in my head! I get where she's coming from, but I don't want to involuntarily associate him with Bush -- I like him! No! I'm attempting to erase this information from my memory. :/
