On one hand, it's getting restored!

On the other hand, my life is endless suffering.

You'd fit perfectly in Satantango's world

If you watch Satantango more times than you leave your room, it's basically like living in Hungary.

hey if any y'all have letterboxds -- i know a couple people do at least -- share here, i want to read what y'all have to say and to go through faves as part of my slow process of "getting back" into films after a neglectful past few years. (figure if you have film ratings/reviews on rym i'm already friends w all the regulars here on it)

edit: and if not, or if so as well, maybe share some words about a film you really like?

Great list, Zieg! I’m so proud.

I need to make my wife watch Make Way For Tomorrow and Ill have to check out The Stranger’s Return.

TheGreatZiegfeld 2 points

Watching Make Way for Tomorrow with your partner is a bold strategy, like seeing Old Yeller with your dog, or Mon Oncle Antoine with your innocence.

I'm sure she'll love it though, and it more than deserves its rapidly increasing classic status.

Spoiler Alert: No it wasn't. In fact, he gave the film A POSITIVE REVIEW!

White is good in that he isn't always contrarian, he just has a weird perspective on film. I never get the impression he lies about his opinions, hence the occasional agreement with popular consensus.

So from 1979 to 2002, only six people would have won it. (If ties mean the award is split)

Gretzky (16 times)

Lemieux (3 times)

Oates (3 times)

Jagr (3 times)

Francis (2 times)

Recchi (1 time)

Still a dumb effing name. Should have been Aces.

To be fair, a lot of NHL names are pretty dumb. We've just gotten used to them.

After letting them sink in, I think my 2017 ranking goes like this: Polygondwanaland > Flying Microtonal Banana > Gumboot Soup > Sketches of Brunswick East > Murder of the Universe

I think this is a great album and many of the songs are growers. I really feel they're trying new styles that are going to be important for the band in the future. Let's see if this 2018 brings us 1 or 2 very awesome albums.

Personally, I'm: Flying Microtonal Banana > Murder of the Universe > Gumboot Soup > Sketches of Brunswick East > Polygondwanaland

But I really like all five albums.

Ralf Brunner is the photographer who took these pictures, not the man in them.

TheGreatZiegfeld 24 points

Does anybody know the name of the man in the photos themselves? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

I wish he had gotten a better chance in the NHL. Barely played at all before being written off, despite his past experience. You could argue him not reporting to the AHL was classless, but you could also argue that sending him down was premature, especially for someone they spent so much for. These doubts might have been silenced had they given him more time, but because they didn't it just looks like a flawed decision.

Such a shame he didn't play in the NHL. He would have been something great, I'd imagine.

That's not true, I posted the very first trailer for rouge one, it got removed and friend of the mod's post got stickied.

Mods are people, they suck equally as the rest of us.

TheGreatZiegfeld 6 points

/r/movies mod here.

It might have just been a mistake on our part, or maybe one of the mods unreasonably favored a particular user. It's hard to say considering Rogue One was a while ago, so I can't look into post removals that far back, but if something like that happens again, let us know so we can address it with the mod who removed that post.

It might have even just been an altered title, or something minor like that. It's possible the mod meant nothing malicious by it, but definitely let us know the next time it happens in case it's a continuing issue.

edit: Also I love your username.

It's all good, like I said, I'm a mod too, I know how it works, that day was a shitshow for you guys, I remember it, lol.

Thanks for answering!

No problem! Things can get messy in modqueue and modmail sometimes, so of course mistakes and issues come up. I appreciate you being considerate about those sorts of things.
