    Well, I just watched Citizen Kane for the first time. I must say, it lives up to its hype. 65 years old and still an intriqing film.

    I was not aware that the entire film was based on searching for the elusive "Rosebud" uttered as Kane's last word before dying. Very interesting film.

    I've seen Papillon. Great movie.

    Citizen Kane reminded me of a black and white style of Stanley Kubrick films. The very stark contrast between features is somewhat surreal.

    I agree, Citizen Kane is an excellent movie. Try to watch it whenever it is on TCM or AMC.

    I remember seeing Papillon for the 1st time when I was home sick from school when I was about 13. Great film. That's what you call it when it's not just a movie, you know? That poor bass turd really went through hell. The french can really be cruel to prisoners, even though they are fru- fru frawnchay frawnch on the battlefield.

    That old crap. You have to watch Bench Warmers. Now that's a good movie. Great plot and deals with the way most of you guys grew up. Sorry guys for me beeing a nerd bully. I take it all back.

    Its all a matter of cultural exposure and class. Mattm has plenty of class, it just happens to all be "low"
