I'll be honest. "Wings of Desire" was just ok for me (I'm dead inside, what can I say?) and I haven't seen "Berlin Alexanderplatz." It's just sooo long. I know I should take the time to see it.
Missed it in the theater, but finally arrived via netflix:
Adgy, I see now why you were pimping it so hard. It was an EXTREMELY entertaining and well done movie. Wow. Different and much better than I'd expected. Even the monster effects were pretty damn solid. Packed solid with action and humor those two hours slid by effortlessly. We really, REALLY enjoyed it.
Lawrence of Arabia.
I finally took 3 hours 47 minutes out of my life to watch this legendary film. I must say it lived up to all the hype and then some. I'd say it is the greatest achievement in "epic" filmmaking that I've ever witnessed.
Fun flick. Kind of an adulter Princess Bride.

"It's understanding that makes it possible for people like us to tolerate a person like yourself."
there is so much s*** going on with that movie and all the what to do's? changing from week to week, i'll be fine with an initial release on DVD being just the movie... they can work on how to go about dealing with the 6-hours and i'll buy THAT one whenever they release it.
i'm having a hard time dealing with that cast. i probably should get over it. but by the time i do, it'll be on cable... like everything else i finally get to see these days.
