Brief rundown of what I've watched so far..

Ratcatcher - A little aimless and under-produced for my taste but nevertheless a good debut from Lynne Ramsay. Unpopular opinion, I preferred her follow-up film, Morvern Callar.

Close-Up - Fascinating documentary. Might make my Top 100.

The Double Life of Veronique and Three Colors: Blue - It was about time I got to Kieślowski, unfortunately I needed a 90s movie project to do so. Anyway, TDLoV had terrific cinematography but its dreamlike emotional qualities lost me a couple times. It was a good film, however TC:B was far better and a lock for my Top 100. Looking forward to White and Red.

High Heels - I'm a big fan of Almodóvar if you haven't noticed. This is one of his lesser known films and now I understand why. It was mediocre. Story, pacing, and characters were a little off. Nevertheless, even in this average film, Almodóvar held my interest throughout with the help of his unique style and many plot turns.

Wayne's World 2 and Gremlins 2 - A pair of comedy sequels I had never got around to after very enjoyable first installments. Wayne's World 2 suffered from Sequelitis. It was released one year after the first one to capitalize on its popularity. The story wasn't well thought-out and seemed to rely on the appeal of its franchise and characters. There were some good jokes here and there but overall an unnecessary sequel. On the other hand Gremlins 2 took the zaniness of its predecessor and cranked it 1000%. A mixture of bad writing and great satire. Never mind that Cates's character strangely disappeared from the movie for what felt like an hour. Never mind the plot lacked direction. Watching these gremlins doing wacky shit didn't get old. Gremlins 2 was self-aware and embraced it by taking numerous jabs at itself (and the first one). One memorable example was a long fourth wall-breaking sequence starring Hulk. Not a great movie by a long shot, but certainly a fun time if you're in the right mood.

The Match Factory Girl - Good film, but lacked surprises and/or shock element.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm - I liked it about the same as Tim Burton's first Batman. It was okay. Will be giving Batman Returns a revisit at some point (haven't watched it probably 10 years) to see if it's as good as AfterHours says.

Europa Europa - Great movie based on real experiences of a Jewish teenager caught in the middle of WWII. A scene towards the end was a bit of a cop-out but otherwise no major complaints. Might make my Top 100.

I prefer Morvern Callar as well, but only by a smidge. Oddly, they don't feel like two films directed by the same person. Bit hard to compare.

And everyone should watch at least one Kieslowski film for the poll if they haven't! Razz Glad you got on those. I think Red is the consensus favourite, but I prefer Blue (and above those, I prefer Veronique). Phenomenal run. Hoping they do well on our list.

(And I'm also not too big on High Heels)

Does the Three Colors trilogy need to be watched in order? I've seen Blue, and I have Red on the DVR from TCM... but they haven't aired White in years.
(I'm sure they're on the Criterion Channel but I don't have that.)

Unless you can unsee Red, I'm not sure what I can do about that Laughing

Def check out White if you can. Still stands pretty well on its own. I think everyone agrees it's the lesser of the trio though.

Nah I haven't seen Red yet. It's just been sitting on my DVR waiting for them to air White... which they're not.

Think

... I'm blaming my eyes on that one. Swore your post said 'and I saw Red'. That's why I thought it was a weird statement. My bad.

If White doesn't show up, give Red a watch anyway. Kieślowski wasn't too fussed if people watched them in order. It isn't episodic or anything. You'll just pick some things up differently.

(I almost used a frames from Blue and Red for the banners)
