The subject of today's post -- no, not this crap -- comes from a suggestion given to me by the lovely and talented Betty C., who just happens to reside in France. Normally, I'd drop the defense mechanisms and happily submit to the pain of jealousy, displaying said emotion through a fit of juvenile vulgarity, but since I'm a lazy, lazy man -- hell, I am gleefully using her suggestion -- I'll refrain from that deadly sin. But just for today.
Anyway, ten movies that I've intended to watch, but haven't, in the order that they stumbled into my thought processor:
1. The Third Man
2. Band à part
3. Les yeux sans visage
4. Umberto D.
5. Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie
7. The Big Sleep
8. The Asphalt Jungle
9. Hearts and Minds
10. Manos: the Hands of Fate (I haven't even seen the MST3K episode!)
It was harder to come up with that list than I would've anticipated, and I'm wondering why I've never gotten around to seeing these flicks (it rhymes with 'cracker'). En plus, I had to use my brain. No more suggestions, people!
One final bit of housekeeping crap. Apparently, I'm supposed to pass this thing on to ten other suckers after signing -- in triplicate -- my receipt of it:
Everyone on my blogroll deserves one, so take it, please. If that means you will have two, or even three, so be it! That means you're, like, super gnarly and not at all skilled in spoon gaggery.
