I haven't seen anything he's done before Paths of Glory.


BTW when talking about baby names (my sister just had a baby) after having watched 2001: A Space Oddysey with my 3 year old nephew, my brother-in-law said that Kubrick would be a good first name. So I'm keeping that. My first son is going to be named Kubrick.

I'm kind of curious what people's thoughts are on Spielberg's "A.I." Personally I liked it a lot and thought it was under-appreciated it. I like it more with each viewing. Its funny because "A.I" seems to divide fans between praise and criticizing. Some Kubrick fans thinks Spielberg fucked up a Kubrick movie. Others think its one of Spieberg's best cause its a lot darker then most of his stuff.
A lot of people thought Spielberg put the "Pinocchio" refferences in the movie. He says Kubrick always intended it that way. Critcs say Spielberg put the alien ending in it, he denies it that as well. Is he just passing all the credit of his own ideas as Kubrick's so people won't be so harsh to critcize?

Stanley Kubrick makes films the way Pink Floyd make music: with a sense of the epic that disguises the fact that there's nothing much going on in them. They're like very loud but ultimately odourless farts.

demonrail your sig is insane. Wat the hell is that owl eating?

And is that a criticism or praise of Kubrick? I can read that either way.

I think A.I. is one of the worst movies i've ever seen. Who knows if it was Kubrick's fault or Spielberg's fault or Jude Law's fault or Haley Jole Osmont's fault. But it sucked.

Actually, it was Teddy's fault.

Apparently it's a mouse.

It was a criticism.

This doesn't even make sense to me. The, uh, "second half" of Full Metal Jacket is way more important and interesting than the first half.
