Perhaps this thread should be moved to the 'General Entertainment' section?
What's this sudden idea? It's been here long time. It must stay.

"Needful Things", Stephen King 1990s adaptation. 6.5/10.
"Home Alone 2", Christmas classic. 8/10.
"What About Bob" - the music used is really cool & such fun. Cool staccato beat (toom. toom. toom. toom. Toom etc). It, funny gal Julie Hagerty, pretty girl playing Dreyfuss' screen daughter, gothic boy playing son & Guttmans (sp?) would be the few best things about it. 5.5/10.

"A Christmas Story" - yes, holidays ended. So what? Ralphie's better than his little whiny brother, such dreadful kid. I don't like kids like that at all. Father fine if trying to be funny, mother very nice if stupid at times. But she's pretty which is plus. Ralphie's friends idiots, teacher fine. Kids' enemies Skut Farkus or what's his name is super lame, laughs like major dork, not scary in the least bit. Freckly to boot, ha. His tiny sideckick who may be elementary school boy for all I care is classic lickspittle. & lickspittle is who, by default? Ab-so-lutely - loser! Haha. The leg-shaped lamp is weirdo. Ugly with fat thigh, weird out-of-date stocking & ugly shoe. & Last but not least, I everytime laugh non-stop when I see the Santa scene. The evil elf girl looks hilarious yet cute in its laughable costume fitting her funny clown-like face. Everytime I wanna pull her cheeks with great strength, pinch her retrousse nose or turn it up even higher till it meets with forehead. Or just punch her upper arm jokingly (well usually even light joking punching by me tends to be still rather painful, if people, friends Daiana, Sonya's words can be taken without grains of salt). Bottom line: fun Christmas film, in Top 3-5. 9, maybe 9.5/10.

"Walk The Line", Johnnie Cash biopic - 0/10. Due to miserable cast, epic fail.
"Reflections" - short 60s avant-garde flower power film with Jenny Boyd & some ugly guy. Many scenes with hippies Roll Eyes who I just can't stand in molecular level. 3/10 to pretty Jenny (& OK, the ugly guy mentioned since he "marries" her).
"Planet Of Apes" - 0/10.
"Little Women", Asian (maybe Japanese) animated film - 2/10.
"English Patient" - who're these people starring? Which basement/ attic casting agents found them? This is tedious at best. 0/10.

I know, Ralph Fiennes is one of my favorite actors .
That being said, for some reason I had trouble getting interested in that movie.

Seen weird film dubbed "Best In Show" directed by Christopher Guest. It stars many familiar faces. It's made like dog contest doc, each contestant talks to camera, as if it's interview, they live in different states, different cities, different backgrounds (duh). It's meant to be funny (the music got humorous side to it) but frankly, the humor falls flat. Not 100% sure but looks like this film derides dog competitions, dog people, generally pet-worshipping people. It does it well in that dept, it ain't funny though. I see it 2nd time since year & half ago (for change, decided then to see films about dogs, google it, Imdb list results appear, by description I pick this film & download) & it's still weird to these eyes. I didn't see anything like it b4.

That's Christopher Guest's style. He makes "mockumentaries" (aka fake documentaries), and Best In Show was basically about the people and dogs that participate in the Westminster Dog Show. It does poke fun at competitive dog show owners. But if you've seen real-life dog show people, it's not all that off-base. I thought it was funny, but obviously not for everyone. Guest also made Spinal Tap, all-time cult classic.

Best in Show was spot on , in my opinion. It's hard for me to watch real dog shows since seeing that film.

Agreed. Netflix has a documentary series called "7 Days Out" about various big events and what it takes to prepare for them. One episodes features the Westminster Dog Show, and some of the owners/handlers could have come right out of "Best In Show."

"Black Cat" w/ Bela Lugosi & Boris Karloff. 3.5/5 - too short.
