There are two main things to know about me. I like music a lot, and I like movies a lot!<br><br>That being said, my favorite types of music are: classic rock (including: folk rock, psychedelic rock, southern rock, progressive rock), oldies, jazz, blues, traditional folk, classical music, world music, bluegrass, and some country- but mainly the OLD stuff!<br><br>As for movies, I enjoy more serious movies- such as dramas. Not serious in a boring and depressing kind of way, though. I just don't like ridiculous movies. I like authentic movies that are special, and different. Ones that have a meaning to them, and aren't just full of rubbish. I don't like overly cliched films. I don't like violent films.<br><br>I rate movies based on how much I enjoyed them. That being said, I could rate a really badly made film higher, or a highly acclaimed/well-recieved movie lower, and you might wonder why. Now you know. People like to <i>enjoy</i> movies and thusly I am not one to jump on the "critically acclaimed" or "indi film" bandwagon when it comes to the movies I choose to watch and/or enjoy.<br><br>0-2 stars: I didn't enjoy it much, at all.<br>2.5 stars: Not terrible, but not very good, either.<br>3 stars: Just ok.<br>3.5 stars: It was pretty good.<br>4 stars: I liked it.<br>4.5 stars: I liked it a lot.<br>5 stars: I loved everything about it!<br><br>Please feel free to add me as a friend if we have similar tastes, and if you are here on this site to rate movies and discuss films. Please <u>do not</u> feel free to add me if you are here to date or flirt, or send me endless "Widgets". Sorry!
It is a terrible shame that this movie was made. Buster Keaton's facial movements, bodily gestures, and other characteristics of his work in silent films shine through far too much. They seem out of place in each scene, and often result in scenes with awkward long pauses, out of place movements (face and body) and some scenes where it just doesn't even make sense what he is doing! The whole film was incredibly long drawn out and laughs were few and far between. Poor Buster Keaton is just lost in this movie.
