I can cross two more movies off my list.
I watched One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Rashomon last night.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest gets a 9/10. I tried to think of negatives about the movie and I really couldn't come up with any other than that bitch nurse, but we're supposed to hate her. The reason it gets a 9 instead of a 10 is I never give out 10s. The acting was superb, and the story was amazing. Not to mention Jack Nicholson is fucking hot as hell in it.
Rashomon was a bit disappointing. I should have known I wouldn't like it a whole lot, considering I'm not a huge fan of old Chinese movies. (Unfortunately there are a few more on the list.) The storyline was intriguing, for which I can't even give credit to the movie itself. It was a short story. 2 of the main characters kept laughing very poorly and it was very distracting. There were far too many instances of no dialogue which made it hard to keep interest, and there was no beautiful cinematography to make up for it. It gets a 5/10, only redeemed by the premise. And I guess it was probably pretty great for its genre and time.
I don't know if I'm gonna continue with these reviews or not. If you have any interest in learning my opinion on about 200 movies let me know, haha. Here
is the updated list for those who are interested.
In other news, listening to Deadboy and the Elephantmen while you're in a sad mood does in fact make you feel even more sad.
