    This is a rarity. I have seen every film on that list. I will admit that I just saw number 4 a few days ago. I gave * * * stars (Out of * * * *) to that one. I have gave * * * * stars (out of * * * *) to numbers 1,2,3,5,8,9 and 10. I gave number 6 * * * 1/2 stars (Out of * * * *) and I gave number 7 * * * stars (Out of * * * *).

      You just saw EVIL ED too? What are the odds?!

      I just created my syllabus for Perspectives on Film in the Spring. It meets Thursday nights at 6:00. If you’re interested I could give you a sneak peak of the films I’ll be screening.

    Hi Michael, † How are you?† † Could I ask what source you use to rent/view movies?† Do you use netflix, amazon, Facets, etc?† Do you buy DVD’s and blue rays, etc? † Now that I have my TV hooked up and running I’m watching quite a few movies.† There are so many good films available that I have never seen for only $5.00 however that can get a bit expensive. † Your thoughts are appreciated.† Thanks Michael. † Bill

      Good to hear from you, Bill. Thanks for asking. First of all, I do buy a lot of Blu-rays — typically 3 to 4 a month. For the past couple years I’ve also had memberships through both Facets and Netflix but I just cancelled my Netflix membership. Netflix no longer cares about physical media. They’re actively trying to get their customers to stream their content and it seems like they’re trying to push television shows and new Hollywood films in particular. By contrast, I couldn’t recommend Facets more highly. For $8.99 a month, you can get a “2 discs at a time” membership that will allow you to either rent by mail OR in person. Plus, it gives you and a guest access to see any film that’s playing in their theater and they show a lot of good stuff that won’t turn up elsewhere (including S. Korean films). So that would be my first recommendation. You can learn more on their website: http://www.facets.org/
