Coming Attractions

Below is a list of movies I've been meaning to add to my collection for a while now. They're not really in any particular order, and it is not meant to be an exhaustive assembly.

Eight Men Out
2001: A Space Odyssey
Seven Days in May
The Matrix
The Seven Samurai
The Hidden Fortress
The Princess Bride

If this Metropolis is the 1929 Sci-fi, then hmmm. I had seen in the school library, and the video quality of that VHS was so bad, that it had me staring at it, in order to glean something. The movie was okay I think, but I think it was technical achievement at that time, I am told. What made you like it?

There's a DVD version now. Actually, there are several, on account of the differing techniques used to alter the number of frames per second. With any of them the video quality should be better.

As for why I like it, well, that's the same as any other movie. I enjoy the story. But more than that, it is one of the progenitors of modern science-fiction, and for that reason alone deserves a measure of respect and recognition.
