No, because I don't advocate hunting for sport.
(Yes I know. Waiting for Bart'so head to explode. )
For me, Barry Lyndon moves "faster" than 2001. It's Kubrick's best.
Yeah I remember when I was first getting into movies it seemed like this awkward black sheep in the middle of his classic run that no one really talked about. These days it seems to get talked about as another one of his big classics though.
I think I've only seen Clockwork Orange once, which seems kind of stupid. I have to admit I'd rank it towards the bottom of his great movies, which still makes it better than most things that exist, but I think I preferred the book on the whole.
I both love the movies... and despise them utterly!
I was lukewarm on EWS, then the second time I saw it, it blew my mind.
ARBITRARY OPINION-BASED LIST!
Kubrick's masterpieces: The Killing, Paths of Glory, Dr. Strangelove, 2001, Barry Lyndon

Kubrick's very good: Spartacus
Kubrick's meh: Killer's Kiss
I guess people don't fully understand the context of the quote. Translation: If you just watch the same kind of shit over and over again, then you're the person who loves the movies they love. However, if you love movies - period, then you're probably going to take advantage of the full 100+ years of film history open to you and absorb as much as you can. In my DVD / Blu-ray collection, every decade is spoken for with multiple entries, some famous, some obscure. Virtually the same by genre, country, and movement (ex. "Italian neorealism" as exemplified by Luchino Visconti's Ossessione). I've slowed down in recent years because the habit is an expensive one, but copies of John Cameron Mitchell's Hedwig, Shortbus, and Rabbit Hole sits next to the Zombies of Mora Tau which sits next to Catherine Breillat's Fat Girl which sits next to Der Golem and Haxan and all of Larry Clark's shit and Robert Bresson's Lancelot du Lac which sits next to The Prowler (itself surrounded by every slasher / proto-slasher film from the 70's and 80's that you've never heard of) and The Warriors which sits next to Commando and Ulmer's Detour and so on, and so on...
That's just the way I feel you have to roll if you're going to separate yourself from the normals.
If you hit the wrong culture, this two-headed mutant bastard pops out of your abdomen...
When I want to aggravate the piss out of myself, I watch a YouTube reviewer spend 10-15 minutes not knowing what the fuck they're talking about.
I sort of do this, but in a highly subjective and likely infuriating to Bart kind of way. I do like discovering films, especially older ones, but many times there has to be a confluence of timing, mood, etc. A few years ago I started working through my list of shame and hope to continue to do so, albeit slowly.
Same, and for the same reason. There are a good number of films I laughed a lot during a theatrical presentation but I know they wouldn't hold up on multiple viewings at home. And I tend to like to view comedies with people, whereas I'm good watching almost anything else solo or with just one other person.
CHUD may have seen better days, but every town has some hole in the wall pub with a bunch of regulars who dig the place and don't give a fuck what anyone else thinks. When I log onto CHUD, I want to know that I'm surrounded by people who put these YouTube assholes to shame. CHUD shouldn't be elitist, but I sure as fuck wouldn't mind it being exclusive. I've always played by High Fidelity rules.
I've been reading the comics of Junji Ito!

"it's not perfect... it's got some flaws..."

OK, I meant without looking up the spelling. I used to be able to type Korean without a Korean keypad, though for what that's worth (not much in my case, to be honest ...)
