Never heard of that either. I don't speak any French, so I'm not going to watch a French movie no matter how good it is.


You haven't heard of Pan's Labyrinth?! Good grief. And not watching something brilliant cos you don't like reading subtitles... You rob yourself of lots of pleasure with that attitude.

I think you'll find that what you consider brilliant and what I consider brilliant don't overlap by very much. And I suspect that you don't make all that many friends with that attitude.

Who am I to compare taste? Each to their own. That's not what I meant.

Sorry, that came across rather aggressive. I tend to be a bit of a philistine when it come to movies - nothing to complicated, and preferably with a bit of what we call skop, skiet en donner.

Oi! Boys! No fighting in the warroom! After all, it's my *burp*day. Beg pardon. While both Amélie and my quoted movie have been up for Oscars, neither won, but I thought with 4 widely known actors starring in mine it would be likelier for someone to have seen this 28 year old movie. And the French language aspect, however misguided it might be, is still a major turn-off in the Anglo-Saxon world., AFAIK.

For me it's the spate of cerebral movies in the 70s produced in France, that makes me hesitate forever to watch any, still. I have to be in a mood to follow the movie by subtitles, and I seldom am,any more.

But I did see Chocolat, for instance. But I prefer, in general, comedy, action, thrillers, Sci-Fi, fantasy.

You are the Brute Squad.

Anyway, back to XDL's quote, that was, of course, from Mr. Smith goes to Washington.

And just to be clear, mine was from Witches of Eastwick, withe the unforgettable Jack Nicholson.

The previous one was The Blues Brothers, and this one of from The Simpsons.
