A few hours ago, I got back from watching Let the Right One In at the cinema. This is the 7th time I’ve watched the film in what… 2 years? [Twice as a screener, twice at the theater and three time on my DVD] And I still can’t seem to get enough of it. So thinking about whether or not I should add the film to my Top10 Favorite Films of all Time, made me remember that I have updated my Top10 Faves slightly already.

Considering I saw Memories of Matsuko less than 2 years ago (1.7 years according to Flixster), and I’ve also seen it 7 times. It’s quickly climbed up from spot #8 to #3~ While Grave of the Fireflies climbed up from #10 to #5.

What film in my Top10 should I displace? Jurassic Park is still in a special place in my heart, and Donnie Darko… hmm… or will Moulin Rouge! make a disappearing act? I need to watch these three films again and re-evaluate my Bottom5. I’m conflicted~~~ xD

Just saw The Red Balloon, and well… just beginning to be a little obsessed about it~~~ so in light of that, I have “curated” a gallery on Flickr, properly titled Le Ballon Rouge.

I also have started a new list on TheAuteurs titled Ultimate Films for the Kiddos~ which I will hopefully fill up with films kids should grow up watching. I would love your suggestions.

I’m just gonna re-post what I wrote on Facebook xD

WOAHHHH, Stella Artois and The Auteurs are letting us watch 6 films for free. What’s better? They are 6 GREAT FILMS. Doesn’t get much better than that.

Polanski’s Repulsion this has been changed for
– Walkabout
– Russian Ark
– Lars Von Trier’s Europa
– Hirokazu Koreeda’s Daremo Shiranai (Nobody Knows)
– Tropical Malady
Hou Hsiao-hsien’s Three Times this has been changed for
– Faust

Just head over there, login and watch.

And remember… if you snooze, you lose.
I’d better watch Tropical Malady before it’s gone like Three Times. xD

Interesting to see 4 films from the 70s, 2 from the 60s… followed by one of the 50s, 40s, 80s and 90s. Then, it’s also 4 films by Stanley Kubrick, 2 by Francis Ford Coppola, and the films by Orson Welles, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, and Akira Kurosawa.

Forgive the shameless reminder of Spice Girls. xD
