    Raiders and Last Crusade. Everything else can be forgotten.

    The ones that suck both do because of too much Lucas. Remember, he wanted Indiana Jones to be a space pulp cowboy whatever. It took other people to rework his original idea into something much better. He also originally wanted Star Wars to be about space pulp wizard cowboys, and there too other helped mold it into something better. The guy had the same dumb idea twice and both times luckily others changed it into something better.

    I'm just shocked you don't claim the whole thing is really a ripoff of some obscure 1930s European serial.
    I see even you won't defend Short Round.

    5 minutes on Google. I can't tell if that was the joke or if you just hit the greatest long shot in history.

    The new trailer for Rise of the Beasts was just released. I was astonished to see it was a new Transformers film and not a documentary about Twitter since Elon bought it and unleashed all the hate trolls back onto the platform.

    My gf comes from an upper upper middle class family...I never seem to get a new Mercedez for Christmas. And she wonders why I hate the holidays ;^)

    The Three Colors Trilogy - Blue (1993) White (1994) and Red (1994)

    Krzysztof Kieslowski is probably better known for The Double Life of Veronique, but I think he shines here. Blue and Red remain my favorite, but White actually grew on me a bit since my last watch.

    Black Christmas (1974)

    Every time I see this I am more impressed with how brilliant a movie it is. Along with Halloween (1978), The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (1970), Suspiria (1977), and a handful of giallo, it's a genuinely great slasher film. Some of the shots of the sorority house are spectacular and in general all the Toronto film locations, including Trinity College, are artful and subtle.

    Obviously almost all slasher films are trash. Even very well done movies like Scream, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Hellraiser get by with stylistic self-reference that's as important as the drama; they do not have any serious involvement with the characters. It's so unexpected to find a movie that is scary as hell but also just a very, very good serious movie too.
