I'm a genre fan, so I often forgive horror films for some flaws. This, however, was terrible. One of the worst sequels to a movie that I've had the displeasure to sit through.

Saw Duel in the Sun (or as it's sometimes affectionately nicknamed "Lust in the Dust"). I was a pretty big fan. No surprise that Scorsese's such a big fan of it. There's no other word for the colors than sumptuous. Just a beautiful-looking movie. I'd be shocked if Tarantino isn't a fan, too. Pulpy, overheated epics seem to be his jam. Jennifer Jones is inconsistent in the lead, but has her moments, and never looked sexier. Gregory Peck is so weird to see as a black hat villain. Lionel Barrymore gives one of his better performances, imo, even without a ton of screen time. It may be lurid and over-the-top, but it knows it is, and presents itself quite fantastically.

Room 237 - 8/10

I really liked this documentary soley for the "wtf is going on with these people" aspect. To anyone who hasn't heard of this, it's about a handful of people who are CONVINCED that The Shining had some deep, completely insane meaning behind it. This focuses on people who have obsessed over the film since it first came out.

I hated it. The theories were so absurd.

I am a bit surprised how negatively Room 237 has been received in some places. Some of the ideas presented are more absurd than true, but to see one of the classics of film so breathlessly talked about and analyzed should be something fans of the art form embrace.

2001: A Space Odyssey would have been a more fascinating film to look at, though.

Saw Celine and Julie Go Boating. I really did enjoy it. The whole fantasy story was witty, charming, unique and damn funny quite frequently. The parallels to Alice in Wonderland are executed beautifully, never so heavy-handed that it was overbearing. What holds the movie back is how goddamn interminable the first chunk of the movie before they enter the story is. Seriously just deadly dull. But Rivette is 2/2 with me now.
