  1. Hey Josh! Well even w/ the film fest I still watched less movies than you did, ahah. I'm super excited to see Local Hero now, if it's similar to The Grand Seduction I'm sure I'll enjoy it!

  2. Jason and the Argonauts,was thinking of giving it a look, is it only interesting for the iconic fight with the skeletons?
    The Return (2003) blew me away in terms of cinematography, acting, and emotion, one of the best contemporary Russian movies I've seen.

    1. I watched Jason and the Argonauts strictly for the visual effects, but you might enjoy the campy nature of it.

      I agree on The Return. It's a phenomenal movie, which tends to get overlooked.
