I figure this is as good as any place to post this little discovery about Alien here.

And, yes, my legendary award winning essay on Alien is still being cleaned up. . . by which I mean I found it and I found my sources, which is to say: It's gonna be a while.

Call it a day, Civilization, we're done here.

There's a Kickstarter for porno.

After that Mars shit I think we're pretty much done here, right?

People Love These Lists!

There's been a bit of a kerfuffle about Vertigo replacing Citizen Kane as the "greatest" film of all time. It's kind of easy for me to reconcile this as either it's a sign of Citizen Kane needing to be retired (in the same way that we could probably safely remove Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band from the running of greatest albums as it's something of a shoe-in) or it is a sign of Sight and Sound losing their mind as Vertigo is profoundly boring. Then again, I do own it, maybe I should watch it again. . .

Either way, this article came out as a reply to all of that and I realize that it's about time for me to review my current list.

Blade Runner
Taxi Driver
Terminator 2: Judgement Day
Seven Samurai
The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
The Big Lebowski
Apocalypse Now

Looking at it now, I realize that there's a few titles that bounce in and out of the list, but there's a core set that just stay on. I'm pretty happy with this list. It's better than it was, I think. I mean, I have to feel that way, right?

Then again, lists are inherently kind of silly.
