Jason, Flixster sucks. I used it for a while, then quit when I tried logging movies and Flixster didn't have the movies I was watching in its database. This happened several times with older and foreign films and especially short films.

Also, I just checked Flixster and your profile page shows that you have 0 ratings and 0 reviews. Somehow, what you're doing through Facebook isn't showing up on Flixster itself. So I can't even subscribe to any feed through Flixster. I rarely ever check Facebook (usually only after someone has sent me a message that way) so I honestly didn't even know that you were still commenting on movies at all over there. There's no way for me to keep up with what you're watching/writing unless I have a feed to subscribe to or unless you're emailing me content. My main Internet source is through my iPod Touch. I either pick up a wireless signal where I'm working or I stop somewhere quickly before work and download email and/or feed subscriptions and then read them offline. I don't have time to leisurely check Facebook every 20 minutes because I don't have an Internet connection at home anymore. All of this not to berate you for not doing what is most convenient to me, but to explain why I haven't commented on any of your Flixster posts. I just haven't seen them. If you were posting to a blog instead of to Facebook, I can guarantee that I'd read everything you write. Instead, I'm missing out. And I really mean that. I'm missing out because I really would like to be reading what you're writing (and I didn't know that you already were consistently logging and writing).


Brandon, in the new year I'm hoping to watch all of my personal DVD collection. I'm currently making my way through the 7 or so Bergman films that I have. I'll make it to Dante before the year is over (Piranha, The Howling, Gremlins, Gremlins 2 are what I own). I'm really looking forward to it. I saw Gremlins 2 in the theatre when I was a kid. It really needs to be seen in the theatre. It is one of the best and most favorite moviegoing experiences of my life.

I really do love Bergman's films. Here is a list of the Ingmar Bergman films I have seen:
Smiles of a Summer Night
Winter Light
The Silence
The Seventh Seal
Wild Strawberries
The last two I saw at Houghton, so I'd be hard pressed to remember much. But they made enough of an impression on me to keep me watching his films.
I currently have out from the library Fanny & Alexander and am just waiting for the right 4 hours to come by to watch it, as it came highly recommended by a friend.

And another thing- I checked out today a DVD with two Rathbone Holmes films. Ilet you know what the boy thinks :).
