Excellent excellent excellent (first viewing)
nice

Which other films of his do you have yet to watch?
All of them. I had only seen 2001 and bits of Strangelove years ago. I'm catching up on them. Bought 4 of his big films at the thrift store and then my friend was nice enough to let me borrow his Kubrick Collection that has all of his films except Fear and Desire, The Killing, Killer's Kiss, and Paths of Glory.

Good thing you're watching them though. You better check out those films missing from the collection too. Especially The Killing and Paths of Glory of those four.

I plan on it. I'm going to be on the lookout for the best way to buy them on BD. My local Target has 2001/The Shining/Clockwork Orange on BD for 12.99 but on Amazon, they have a region free international copy of Director's Collection that has all except the ones below and Strangelove for like $30. Never bought out of country stuff before but that looks like it's the cheapest option if I love Lolita, Spartacus, Barry Lyndon, and Eyes Wide Shut as much as the others.

When Criterion goes on half off sale at B&N next, I intend to get The Killing (which actually also includes Killer's Kiss) and Paths of Glory.

About Time
I was smiling way too hard during the transitive happy phase of theirs. Never been a fan of RomCom but that's probably one of my favorite ones easily. Just a great film.

Thelma

A strong, intense film from 2017. It came out of nowhere for me.

I also watched Woody Allen's new film Wonder Wheel right before it, and felt it was OK. Loved the lighting and could have used more Juno Temple and Jim Belushi. But Kate Winslet and just about everything else was irritating. Too wordy, too much like all of the other Woody Allen films that I don't like lol. Never been a huge fan of his work. I always walk away saying to myself "Woody Allen must be impossible to have a conversation with."

Very interesting but a little bit longer, not the best work of the master. Daniel Day Lewis was very impressive as always

The Host- 8/10

Couldn't really connect to any of the characters except for that little girl. Some parts were genuinely intense (the sewer scenes) but others not so much. Some really good directing as well.

Just realized that "international copy" of the BD Director's Collection on Amazon is from Europe. Which means it's copy of The Shining has over 25 minutes cut from it. I'm taking a hard pass on that.

There's an excellent Masterpiece Collection on BR you could check out given you have the funds. Amazing special features and documentaries. It pretty much compiles everything from every home video release ever, minus a few things.

Also, are you watching his films in rough order of release? The best way imo.

I was not. I started out by watching what I owned first, but then I got loaned the collection on DVD and I went with ACO just to make sure I saw that one before I had to give the collection back (dunno when my friend will want me to give it back).

That BD Collector's Edition has European cuts of the film though that cut out scenes and I'm not about that life.

EDIT: Oh you're talking about the big $100 Masterpiece Collection. It looks nice but I'm almost positive I can't afford that.
