9. The Scarlet Horseman (1946) Lewis D. Collins, Ray Taylor / FTV 5/13-5/31 / Rating: 5 (248 min. = 2 points)

11. War and Peace (1956) King Vidor / RV 6/15 / Rating: 8 (208 min. = 1 point)
Pales beside the Bondarchuk epic but taken on its own merits this succeeds on many levels. The casting and dialogue is sometimes awkward, but Vidor stages many effective scenes and produces a solid "Hollywood" epic.

tarr, I had you listed at 138 points after you claimed a lot of points for TV series. I recall there was quite a lot of back-and-forthing around that -- did you decide not to count them or---?

(this thing is behaving very strangely - I tried to quote but....)

Yeah, I decided against it. I'll just stick with movies and mini-series.

There was one theater in town that still showed movie serials in the late 40s, but it was off limits for us -- tho I did go once for someone's birthday party. (Radio serials, on the other hand....)

@psychotronic - I remember hating the 1956 War and Peace - felt it was dreadfully miscast, though not so badly as the 1958 Brothers K. Don't plan to revisit either. (That was the period of The Thaw.)

This was a rewatch for me and for the most part I agree. Of the three leads only Henry Fonda really comes through - I've never seen Audrey Hepburn give a more empty performance than she does here. My rating for this increased dramatically since my first watch primarily because I liked some of the things that King Vidor did. Compared to other Hollywood epics of the time it ain't bad, but compared to Bondarchuk's version it comes up woefully short.

I still need to see The Brothers K - mainly for The Shat but I tend to appreciate Richard Brooks' films too.

12. Napoleon: Parts I-IV (2002) Yves Simoneau / FTV 6/18 / Rating: 6 (377 min. = 4 points)
I watched this on Fathers Day, but ironically the date is also the 202nd anniversary of Waterloo. Line from the film: "Watching your son grow up will give you more happiness than an empire." My avatar is a screenprint of my son from a couple of years ago and since he gives me the greatest happiness in my life I concur.

13. Why We Fight (1942-1943) seven films (total time: 422 min. = 5 points)

13d. Why We Fight: The Battle of Britain (1943) Frank Capra, Anthony Veiller / FTV 6/20 / Rating: 9 (54 min.)
13e. Why We Fight: The Battle of Russia (1943) Frank Capra, Anatole Litvak / FTV 6/21 / Rating: 8 (83 min.)
13f. Why We Fight: The Battle of China (1943) Frank Capra, Anatole Litvak / FTV 6/23 / Rating: 8 (65 min.)
13g. Why We Fight: War Comes to America (1945) Frank Capra, Anatole Litvak / FTV 6/24 / Rating: 7 (70 min.)

The Battle of Britain is both the emotional and literal center of this seven film documentary series. Overall, the series is very solid wartime propaganda making good use of animation and stock footage as well as scenes shot specifically for the films. Even though I spaced this out over several days I felt worn out by the last film - perhaps because that is also the one that presented the least new facts to me. I wish it had taken more of a man on the street approach so we could actually hear what people were really thinking instead of being told.

IMDb says 378 minutes, but the copy I got lasts for 345 minutes, so 5+h instead of 6+h. Don't know if there's anything wrong with my copy.

Could be a PAL vs NTSC difference, but that would only explain about half of the missing runtime though.

I'm going to start including long films under 3 hours here as an incentive to actually watch them. Won't add points, though.

10. (1 pt) Giant (1956) dir. George Stevens - 7.8 - long, but for the most part didn't feel needlessly long. Didn't really know what to expect for this one, but didn't realize it was going to be cross-generational
x. (0 pt) Around the World in 80 Days (1956) - dir. Michael Anderson - 6.2 - 5 minutes shy of 3 hours - I love the source material, but this deviated so much from it that it was disappointing. I guess the only way this won BP at the Oscars was because everyone in Hollywood and England participated somehow. Racial stereotypes and whitewashing don't age well.
x. (0 pt) Intolerance (1916) dir. D.W. Griffith - 7.2 - 3 minutes shy of 3 hours - Impressive for an early feature-length film, but not terribly interesting. Those aerial shots of Babylon were impressive. The stories are rather thin, but the way the 4 were interwoven made them somehow more interesting, and added to the suspense. And it looks like they actually cast black actors as Nubians instead of using blackface.
9 pts so farShow
1. (1 pt) The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) dir. Martin Scorsese - 7.4
2. (1 pt) Lawrence of Arabia (1962) dir. David Lean - 8.4
3. (1 pt) House of Cards (1990) various directors - 8.6
4. (1 pt) Tuntematon sotilas [Unknown Soldier] (1955) dir. Edvin Laine - 7.6
4. (1 pt) Judgment at Nuremburg (1961) dir. Stanley Kramer - 8.4
5. (1 pt) Les enfants du paradis [Children of Paradise] (1945) dir. Marcel Carné - 7.8
6. (1 pt) Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India [Land Tax] (2001) dir. Ashutosh Gowariker - 7.8
7. (1 pt) Apocalypse Now [Redux Version] (1979) dir. Francis Ford Coppola - 8.6
8. (1 pt) The Deer Hunter (1978) dir. Michael Cimino - 8.0
9. (1 pt) Amadeus (1984 directors cut) dir. Milos Forman - 8.0 - partial RE-WATCH

Score:
Films/Mini-Series Watched: 14
Points: 43

14. King Kong (2005) Peter Jackson / RV 7/22 / Rating: 8 / {201 min. = 1 point}
Compared to the original 1933 King Kong this really does feel long, nearly every scene, even the big action scenes could conceivably be trimmed. But, Naomi Watts is great in it, she and Serkis are the heart of the film - and that's what keeps me rewatching this one, although this was my first viewing of the extended version. Plus, the art design for Skull Island is spectacular and intense.

Next month I am setting a personal challenge of watching mini-series and epic films. I hope to double my score here or at least hit 75 points.
