Meet the New Blog (Same As the Old Blog)

Where were we? Ah, yes: popcorn, ham & cheese, women's lingerie and culture fart. That's what it was, and my heart will go on. Right? Just nod if you can hear me.
The tree has a few extra branches lately. There's Creature Double Feature, a low-key horror parade. Also, It's Your Birthday and Swamp Sex Robots serve as shelves for odds & ends. And, for the game, there's Bennett Place, a home for all our best(ish) videos. That doesn't mean this house is condemned. Any & all original creations will still filter though here - especially any kinda commentary (which there will be more of) and videos.
Videos. That can happen some more if there's an interest - from you and from us. In the meantime, here's a new Top 100 - not in video form. But it's still fun to look at & sorta fits in with the theme as of late.
The list. It's been about 5 years since the last one, and almost 10 years since the first published one. As time goes by, I'm seeing less new stuff get on the list and more old, old favorites bubbling back to the surface. This may be a result of aging, I dunno. After enough life, you can feel which movies are still in your blood and which were just one night stands. There are movies that I loved that I haven't revisited in 10 years, so, they get benched. They can stay on the DVD shelf forever, but they're not who I am right now. Like books & songs & paintings, they change as we do. So, the list will keep changing, recruiting old favorites or experiencing new classics (the latter much less likely). Stay tuned.

How come no movies from Richard Linklater? I feel like you guys would love Before Sunrise.

Huh, now that I think about it, Forrest Gump is an endearing film. I love what it stands for and represents. It exhibits the death of liberalism, that even the underdog and minority can achieve something too at the same time.

Are there any movies on either of your first two lists that you look back on and think "why was that on there"?

P and J said...

No. Stuff falls off the list because other stuff pushes it off - it's just a reevaluation. Nothing's ever been on the list that I dislike.
