@Gary Oldman because again the whole review was for the project itself, not the individual films. As long as it is ongoing in the same form he initially reviewed it then it should be included. The point of adding it to the list is to say that all the films should be watched. Why do you need to stop watching a project Ebert admired the entire idea of because he's no longer around to see future installments? He put his stamp on the entire idea so EVERY film in that series should be included. The series doesn't not exist after his death. And if you want to say you've seen all the films he claimed to be part of the great movies project then you need to watch all the Up films, including the ones potentially yet to come.

@Gary OldMan @TimA1030 he included the entire Up series on his great movies list. It's pretty clear that he would consider any future installments in that series appropriate for the list.

If that was the case then they should also remove 49 Up and 56 Up because he wrote his Great Movies article in 1998 before those films came out and he didn't say "oh a new one is out, it's on my list". The point was it was the whole series, not the specific films. Each one should be added as long as they are made.

A stone cold masterpiece.

A movie with good intentions but terrible delivery. Could be a great film but Parker makes far too many tonal mistakes.

From IMDB's trivia page for this film:

quote:
Often categorized as a "meta-movie", due to the fact that it does not exist.


Fantastic.

@Carota. Dogme 95' films were forbidden to have director credits, so none is listed on IMDB.

Absolute masterpiece. A perfect look not at a marriage in death, but rather how we all deal with long term relationships. Perfect characters, perfect dialogue and gorgeous scenery.

Whether you like the screenplay or not, you can't deny that this is a masterpiece of editing and cinematography.

Unfortunately most people who watch this documentary get wrapped up in whether or not Peterson is guilty, when I think they miss the real value of this film. It's such an incredible look into every level of a high profile court case, from focus testing a defense to watching news reporters prepare to read on camera. It's a great view behind the lens of the celebrity trials and the various ways our courts have been tainted by hyperbolic rhetoric.

Weird. I swore I saw it there yesterday. Well no matter, it's back in again.

A fantastic and unique biography. Absolutely wonderful in every way.

Michel Gondry whimsy filtered through David Lynch madness with a hint of Caesar Millan. While the film is by no means perfect, a fantastic cast helps speed along this rather bizarre treat,

Also this film will be hated by many, many people. I guarantee it.

Pretty fun little indie project. It's got a ton of problems, but it's so infectious and genuine that it's well worth a watch. Especially since it's all online for free.

This feels to me like the Wikipedia of documentaries. There's a lot of subjects covered, but nothing really in depth. It feels more like a jumping off point into more interesting docs.

While it suffers from a pretty cliched third act, Denzel's acting and Zemeckis' smooth direction make this a pretty good little film.

Ridiculously manipulative, boring, unfocused and over-thought in every way.

Also am I the only who hated Affleck's acting in this. Could it even be called acting? It seemed like he could not care less whenever he was on screen.

I'm glad icheck finally found a good way to recreate the old IMDB lists. The list is 10 times better than it ever was and will probably be more consistent now.

Not only an excellent film about games but also a masterful exploration of the creative process.

A criminally unappreciated film at the time of it's release (only two Oscar nominations, seriously?) and still today. Incredibly powerful film that stands both as a perfect biopic and a remarkable message of understanding.

Also this film is proof the Academy is completely inept in what they are doing. How Denzel didn't win for this layered smart performance but did win for his ludicrously showy role in Training Day shows how idiotic they are in judging acting talent.

Oh Bunuel. Only you could make a brilliant attack against the bourgeoisie and religion and still fill your movie with visual poop jokes and blowjob humor. I love that crazy Spaniard!

This film is just as beautiful as Baraka, if not more so. Whereas Baraka was about the overall human experience, this film seemed much more depressed in it's view of humanity. Samsara focuses a lot on decay and the impermanency of life. It also felt more pointed in it's criticism of humanity than Baraka. This left me a little disappointed, particularly since it is so structurally similar to Baraka.

It's still a stellar visual masterpiece, but perhaps a little too melancholy and frankly pretentious at times to match up to Baraka's perfection.

I truly believe that the transition from film to digital cinema will be the biggest transformation in filmmaking since the invention of sound or color, so this film is incredibly important to me. This documentary features an amazing array of interviews and doesn't shy away from technical discussions. Keanu proves to be an excellent interviewer who knows exactly how to probe for the right responses.

I cannot recommend this film highly enough.
