I stayed at work all day today, so now I feel like total hell.

215) The Ladies Man. Again, shut up, you know you laughed. This was hysterical. Also, Julianne Moore AND Tiffani-Amber Thiessen? I think I'll buy this.

216) Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights. First thought: You know that "if you could lose your vision or your hearing" question? I've decided hearing cause, even if I never got to hear Hank Williams again, I couldn't go through life without being able to see Sela Ward. Second though: Oh Javier, you poor idealistic Cuban bastard. It's going to suck for you in a few years when you realize Batista to Castra was at best a lateral move. Third thought: The Swayze. Awesome.

So I'm feeling a little better. I watched the first three of a six picture tribute to Fritz Lang last night and recorded the rest so I can watch them later. I bet he was a creepy guy in real life.

209) Ministry of Fear. This is a messed up movie.

210) Western Union. Good western. What else should I say?

211) Fury. Tracy was a psycho at the end.

I woke up early and felt pretty good until I started moving and I realized that I had found the exact position in which to lay so that my sinuses were totally in balance and then spent several fitful hours trying to get back in that position. Alas, it was unattainable and I began to feel like hell again. When it finally became apparent that I wasn't going to be getting back to sleep I got back to the TV.

212) The Shining. Are you kidding me? This has to be one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I can't believe it took a whole five months for Jack to go nuts. All it took was 2 1/2 hours of that annoying little shit and Shelley Duvall's fucked up teeth to drive me bitchcakes. Can wardrobe maybe scare up a BAG FOR HER HEAD? And what's with the whole "boring = creepy" thing? Cause boring only equals BORING. What total shit. I HATE YOU SHINING!

213) Looney Tunes: Back in Action. She might be a total psycho with the whole scientology thing, but Jenna Elfman does it for me. Good clean wacky fun for the whole family.

At this point I was so stir crazy I got up and went to work for a few hours and then regretted it. Apparently being sick makes you weak.

214) A Night at the Roxbury. Shut up, you know you laughed.

CALIFORNIIIIIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!! I don't even know what to say. I heart Alex and all, but The OC is slowly losing it's grip on me. The theme song and scenes from next week are all I really look forward to anymore. And why with the Husker Du shirt on Billy Campbell? Do you want me to hate you? Is that what you want? Cause you're really trying my patience here.

Still sick, but at least I'm getting some work done.

201) Midnight. I wish I was as cool as John Barrymore. Apparently he was so drunk during shooting that he had to read his lines from cue cards, but he still pulled off the suave and charming older man. Now that's acting.

202) Boom Town. Hedy Lamarr is so hot. I liked this a lot.

203) Montana Belle. Dear Jane, Bangs are not your friend either. Love, Todd.

I have a terrible cold or something and I think I'm dying, so I might not finish the 1000. Just to warn you.

198) The Tattooed Stranger. Yeah, this didn't live up to it's awesome title. It reeked of fifties educational programming, all "TECHNOLOGY...SCIENCE...Catching tomorrow's killers...TODAY!"

199) Tavorich. I was so in love with this movie until the end. First off, how chilling was it when the Commissar talked so calmly about the "necessity" of Bolshevik "butchery" and "rivers of blood" and the peasants that would starve and those that would have to be shot so they wouldn't make a fuss? And then they give the commie fuck the Czar's money?! "For Russia"? Not pleased. If they had told him to go to hell or, better yet, killed him, this could quite possibly have been my new favorite movie (at least for tonight).

200) It's a Wonderful World. Claudette Colbert. What an awesome name. And this is more Jimmy Stewart's speed. Silly, but good.

200 down, 800 to go.

191) Night Passage. Jimmy Stewart always seems laughable to me as a tough guy, but when you mix in an accordion? Oh the potential! This was pretty lame, but I'll remember that accordion til the day I die.

192) Frankie and Johnny. Does this movie have both Elvis and Ellie Mae? Yep. Does that make it an automatic winner? Yep.

193) The Lost Weekend. or Robin's birthday party. ZING! Okay, that was mean. I half-heartedly apologize. Anyway, this was certainly a depressing movie about a depressing person and even if the performances were great and there were some really powerful moments it's still hard to watch.

194) The 49th Parallel. Leave it to the Canadians to turn what should have been an interesting war/suspense picture dull. Olivier's EXCELLENT French-Canadian accent is about the only thing worth recommending about the whole thing.

195) The Bedford Incident. There was so much HOT COLD WAR POLITICAL THRILLER ACTION in this that it's two hours seemed like five days and I couldn't keep my eyes open. I can't imagine going to the theater for this movie. How do you advertise something like this? You'll thrill to the standing around and talking! You'll chill to the constant lack of action! I am totally crapping out with the war pictures this afternoon.

196) Highwaymen. Weirdest. Movie. Ever. Sarah rented this because of Jesus and I guess it was well directed and all but it was just WEIRD.

197) Dark Passage. BLAH. Though I just realized that I watched Night Passage first this morning and finish the day off with Dark Passage so thats kind of a funny coincidence.

197 down, 803 to go.
