On 10/20/02 Luke (machinatmogsp@hotmail.com) submitted the following:

Anyone who says that Lawrence of Arabia is a bad film does not understand what makes a movie great. I can understand someone not liking it, but completely missing the beauty and grandness of it just shows that you do not know films as well as you would like to think. David Lean made in addition to Lawrence an epic (long) film known as Doctor Zhivago. This film was quite unenjoyable all in all in my point of view, but I did at least grasp and admire the greatness of certain aspects. Long does not equal good. Good equals good. Furthermore, what is with this about The Fellowship of the Ring not having a decent ending? Do you not realize that first of all, the books were written as ONE book and the publisher split them up, and also that the films were made as one. The movie ends were the book ends, just as it should. Nonetheless, I think the movie has a great ending. Why should it have to end like The Godfather or Star Wars? Why not do something new and more fitting to the film? Again, some people need to learn about film before trying to logically complaining about them.

I agree Luke. (AC 12/6/02)

UNDERSTANDING THE STRUCTURE OF THE MOVIE JACOB'S LADDER

The most important way to begin understanding Jacob's Ladder ("in terms of what is presented on the screen")is to remember that Jacob dies on the operating table of a Vietnam camp. Jacob dies in Vietnam. That's the clincher! He is not a war veteran like so many people seem to believe.

And if we accept this, then the rest of the movie is a dream...an hallucination...that takes place while Jacob lies in coma on this operating table. The movie is Jacob's state of mind in coma. This explains the phantasmic, sometimes illogical nature of the movie: the ghoulish masks and the way Jacob skips from scenes with his lover to scenes with his wife in an *almost* senseless montage of events.

But, the question is, why does Jacob have this dream...this hallucination...to begin with?? Why doesn't he just die? At the end of the movie, even the doctors are curious as to why Jacob held on to life so tenaciously.

Well, the reason Jacob hangs on, we soon discover, is that he is overwrought with guilt. Jacob is a man trying to come to terms with his deamons, with the atrocious fact that he killed so many of his own fellow soldiers in combat: soldiers who were not the enemy. This dream or hallucination, then, is the way Jacob's brain...his conscience...tries to logically make sense of the deaths he propogated. Jacob's dream is his brain working frantically to redeem him of the crimes he has committed. HOW could I have killed my own men?? He asks. Until Jacob can satisfactorily answer this question for himself, he will never achieve peace:

"The only thing that burns in hell is the part of you that won't let go of your life: your memories, your attachments. You burn them all away. They're not punishing you...they're freeing your soul"

Jacob's mind, his conscience, finally answers his question for him. The motive for his acts of violence and hate are a result of a drug that was administered to him by the army. This drug is what provoked the violence and rage in Jacob that led him to kill his men. But, the interesting thing about the movie is that because it takes place in Jacob's dream his motive for having killed the other soldiers becomes questionable. Is the drug story merely a fabrication of his imagination? Is it the mind's way of healing itself...of fashioning logic out of chaos? Or, did the drug really exist? Afterall, the army denies any use of such a drug. The movie, therefore, doesn't take sides. It is left to the viewer to decide if the drug really existed or not.

In my opinion, this movie is genius.

Very well stated Laura...great contribution. Click here to go to the Jacobs Ladder page. (AC 12/6/02)

This is my Top 10 list of OVERRATED films. I've seen these films on many "favorites" and "greatest" lists and what's great about them is beyond my comprehension. 1) Lawrence of Arabia - over 3 1/2 hours and you feel every second of it 2) The Graduate - I even like Simon and Garfunkel and I ccan't stand how often they play "Sounds of Silence" 3) The Grapes of Wrath - Oh gosh, somebody shoot me. Nothing entertaining about this movie what-so-ever. 4) Close Encounters - Goes on too long and the wait isn't worth the payoff. 5) Gladiator - I liked it better the first time I saw it when it was called "The Ten Commandments". 6) Lord of the Rings - I know it's a trilogy but for heaven's sake, have some kind of decent ending. Each movie should be able to stand alone without the others (ie. Star Wars Trilogy, Godfather Trilogy) 7) The Patriot - Too long and too predictable. You know it's a bad movie when they pull the "the bad guy is dead, wait a second, no he's not" crap. 8) Royal Tenenbaums - Was this movie supposed to be funny??? 9) Grosse Pointe Blank - I just don't get the Pointe. 10) Fight Club - I'm not buyin' the ending. Sixth Sense I buy totally, but this is nonsense and it ruined the movie for me. You couldn't pay me to sit through any of these again.

Since when was the patriot rated? My top 5 of overrated films 1.godfather 2.star wars 3.pulp fiction 4.heat 5.r. dogs 6.casino 7.any jackie chan movie 8.citizen cain 9.police acedemy 10. pat's top 10 (joke). (MC 10/15/02)

On 10/08/02 Patrick Metzger (pametzger@columbus.rr.com) submitted the following:

Lawrence of Arabia could have easily been trimmed to 2 hours and been a much better film. I know you will say that it had to be that long to feel the vastness of the desert and explore the depth of the charachters. Hogwash. If I have 3 and 1/2 hours to kill I'd much rather spend it on one of the Godfather's, Schindler's List or Gone With the Wind. When are people going to realize that long does not always equal good?

Too long? The attention span of the modern american is only 2 hours. That is sad. To cure your aliments you should try to watch the restored version of Greed. "With patients comes understanding" Daniel Son. (MC 10/9/02)

Doctors successfully replace his member with that of the dead man, but refuse to tell him the full story of the organ's origin.

You ask why I don't like these movies....who said I didn't like some of them? I can't include every movie I like on a top 100 list. Scorsese has three films (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Last Temptation of Christ)on my list which I believe are far better than the two you listed. Boogie Nights is good, but I preferred Magnolia.

Don Birnam, long-time alcoholic, has been "on the wagon" for ten days and seems to be over the worst; but his craving has just become more insidious. Evading a country weekend planned by his brother Wick and girlfriend Helen, he begins a four-day bender. In flashbacks we see past events, all gone wrong because of the bottle. But this bout looks like being his last...one way or the other.

What is up with the Bear giving the man a Blow Job.

Bob...I assume your speaking of that scene from The Shining. Here is the info I pulled from another source (http://www.visual-memory.co.uk/faq/index.html#slot3). (AC 9/16/02)

The "bear scene" is a brief moment in The Shining when Wendy, beginning to see the same "1920's Party" events that Jack's been seeing, is wandering through the halls of the hotel. As she looks around a corner, she sees two shapes huddled over the edge of a bed. As she looks, they are revealed to be two men, possibly engaged in oral sex. One is wearing what looks to be a bear (1) costume. The scene is taken directly from Stephen King's novel. In one of the novel's scenes set in the 1920's party, Jack is dancing with a beautiful woman. He notices that at one table, there is a young man behaving like a pet dog for the amusement of others, including a tall, bald man. The bald man is Horace Derwent, a Howard Hughes-like figure who poured millions into restoring the Overlook Hotel in the 1920's. (Jack has learned this by reading a mysterious scrapbook earlier in the novel.) The younger man has a romantic crush on the bisexual Derwent, and Derwent has said that 'maybe', if the man dresses like a nice doggy, and acts like a nice doggy, he 'may' be willing to sleep with him. Later on, in the novel, as Wendy is warily navigating the corridors of the Overlook, she begins to see the visions of the 1920's party. And at one point, peering around a corner, she sees the two men on a bed, one in a doggy costume. The two men are Derwent and his extremely dependent lover. It's difficult to say why this second scene remains in the film; as it's somewhat confounding without all of the set-up that King provides in his book. Perhaps its jarring incongruity is reason enough for its inclusion, illustrating as it does Wendy's extreme disorientation at that point in the film. Another explanation is that the background on Derwent may have been scripted and filmed, (2) but excised in the final cut.

You'll find all this on Friday at: http://www.bfi.org.uk/topten

You're welcome to reproduce the lists and keep your site up to date.

I was unfamiliar with the 1969 film "Kes". The following is the plot line courtesty of IMDB.com (AC 10/02/02):

Billy Casper comes from the poorest end of town (Barnsley, England), he can't concentrate at school and does very badly. He is beaten up regularly by his elder brother and disregarded by everyone. Then one day he sees a wild Kestrel and this leads to a whole new side of his character being discovered. He is as surprised as everyone else by what he discovers but a tragic end is in store.

I just wanted to laugh at Kevin Cannino for putting Godzilla! on his list, come on. Hey Kevin you mean to tell me Liar Liar is better then Schindlers List, well, I guess if you really like comedies. Ok, where is the Godfarther part one, I see II but not I. And in a review of these movies you mention, Arron, that you think these charchters in these mafia movies are despicable. Do you think that Francis Coppola and Mario Puzo wanted America to like these charachters? No! Well, if you are the kind of guy who likes these charachters, sure, but they also had in mind that some people would hate these charachters. It's when you don't care for them at all, that is when something is wrong. Appreciate some feedback on the absence of Godfather I. Scarface rules!!!

I obliviously have no problems with despicable characters in films...but you know as well as I do that the majority of the people watching these mafia characters do in fact admire them. Let me be clear that I am not knocking the movies based on this ( I and II are masterpieces), but simply fed up with the blind acceptance of anything mafia by film fans. The genre is tapped out.

In Mark's list, many of the links do not work, mainly the ones that are not also on Aaron's. As for your list, I have unfortunately not seen nearly as many of the movies as I ought, which is being remedied. A suggestion (though I do not presume to tell you to immediately put it on your list): Big Blue, directed by Luc Besson. Bravo for the courage to place movies in defined ranks; I would most likely drive myself insane attempting to categorize movies thus.

Hey Lain...as a fan of Luc Besson, I am very interested in your suggestion "Blue". The following is a plot summary from Foreignfilms.com: "A rescue diver returns to the Mediterranean to participate in a deep sea dive competition where he meets a beautiful reporter. An old rivalry is rekindled when he must, once again, compete with a friend from childhood who is the current champion and holds the record for the deepest dive. " (AC 7/21/02)
