First, I wanna say thanks to Mac for being the true saviour of Xixax. Secondly I wanna apologize for getting married and older... Somehow this year pretty much every film I've seen has been mainstream, and the vast majority of them have sucked and were instantly forgettable. Certainly not worth thinking and writing about. I've really let the art house releases pass me by this year, and there have been so many that I badly want to see - but I've just stuck them on my Netflix... The Visitor and Bigger, Stronger, Faster come to mind. I really need to get back into watching more smaller releases and perhaps waiting on most of the mainstream stuff based on the consensus on here and not wasting my cash and my time on crap like Get Smart. Many of you here have a much broader knowledge of filmmakers than me, just looking at the selection of Criterions you guys have been buying lately... wow. I used to really feel like I was on top of everything as far as film goes, and whilst it is still my primary interest (as well as screenwriting) I really feel like I've let my scope slip become a megaplex whore of late. I'm going to blame it on living in the suburbs and being to lazy to drive into the city whenever I wanna see a good movie. This is why Britain is so good - everything is so close. But I love Xixax even if things are slowing down. It's my online home :)

I'm sorry that I post in the Now Playing topic twice as much as anywhere else but music really has gotten more important to me than film. I work inside a movie theatre and so 90% of the conversations I have there are film related and when I get home I don't always want to write down the same shit I've been saying all day. For the sake of the site I will try and post more of thoughts on films that I see, not that it will liven things up but that's the best anybody can do I suppose. 

 I love you guys (and gals.)
My assholeness knows no bounds.

I was with landmark for four years through college and had a lot of fun finishing my thoughts during the day over here at night time.  you get to see or at least hear about all these films man, tell us about some of them.
and fuck chuck, if he's still running landmark.

Weird because I feel that xixax is more alive now than a year ago, specially with the great movies we've been getting: there will be blood and all the oscar movies, walle and dark knight....


what's been lacking is discussion on older, more arthouse films. i wanted badly to hear opinions on the hiroshi teshigihara boxset but i think that thread had like five replies(one of them was a full awesome review but still), and A LOT of the criterions that come out and that you guys own, they could have their own thread, just to start it. just looking at the names of those films on visible threads (instead of being barely mentioned on the criterion thread) helps me to remember what to rent or blind buy if'm given the chance, or what to look for here and there.

this place is dead, but i still mange to find new discoveries in archive threads.  i spent a whole work day accomplishing the Kubrick section and found new gems i somehow missed. 

ALexandro's proposed idea with more talk of Criterions and such is a must i think.  i've blind bought uncountable DVDs thanks to those like Ghostboy and others.  i have a list that sits in my wallet with titles and names like Rolf De Heer (http://xixax.com/index.php?topic=10037.0) who i've had trouble coming across, but will one day (thx in advance, Pubrick). 

and thank you XIXAX in general for saving my cinematic naivety and filling my pleasures with movies and music and things i would've never discovered if it wasn't for you (and you and you and you..).

p.s. i had a GT sized piece on why XIXAX is important and lost it due to my cat running across my keyboard.  this is why i usually never post more than three lines.

p.p.s. can we have more cat threads?

100% on board.  Just got the Internet at home in fact.  Because I used to post here during infrequent trips to the public library, which I don't know if you all knew, so now I don't have to worry about whether the latex-gloved regular next to me is reading over my shoulder.  I also don't have to notice the middle aged man next to me who is looking at boy porn.  Or politely disagree with elderly women as to who booked the computer first.
Raven haired Linda and her school mate Linnea are studying after school, when their desires take over and they kiss and strip off their clothes. They take turns fingering and licking one another's trimmed pussies on the desks, then fuck each other to intense orgasms with colorful vibrators.

Xixax is like a family. When your brother P or Polka leaves town, you're not gonna replace him with your sister's new boyfriend. At least not until a couple years.

Take me for example, the middle-child of the board. I can stop posting for a year, no one will even talk about it. But goddamn if I don't feel like I'm making a comeback when I do comeback. Much like when my sister came home from college and wrongly expected everyone to have missed her.

Xixax is an internet home. 30% of my posts have been on idle chatter. Movies have little to do with the lack of action these days. I think it's just us getting old and not caring about family as we used to.

I love Xixax with all my heart.

Please don't die. =(

I owe this place quite a bit. When I first came here years ago, my cinephilia was just developing. I knew I wanted to make movies, but back then the kinds of films that sat in my mind were those of Ritchie and the like. After about 6 months, those thoughts left me and I dove deep into more (generally assumed by the masses) obscure territory. Through all the wonderful people here I learned about the Nouvelle Vague, Italian Neo-Realism and the cinema of other countries and cultures.

Xixax has effectively (and completely) changed my taste in film (and music, to some extent). It's guided my love of film to such a fervor at times that it's left an unmistakable impression.

I know I rarely post - and most of what I say doesn't really provide any kind of contribution to the board at large - but I'm here as often as I can be. I've always meant to change my ways, but I now have less of a chance to do so than usual (i don't have a computer of my own and we've lost internet at my house). I will, of course, try harder to make more posts with some real substance to them, but it'll take time.

I just want to give this place a great big hug.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Gamblour.

I think for me I needed Xixax to discover cinema, and now I know how to do that. I was really into discussing movies a year ago, but blew my wad on that and now I kinda hate talking about the movies I see. Maybe I'm just fucking mistaken, but isn't the Batman thread all about politics for some reason? Snooze.

There are a million reasons why I post less, getting married, not having a desk job, Lost hiatus, no interest in the art house films out right now, making my own films, starting a blog for CHUD among others.

I am seeing a screening of Man on Wire tomorrow, that might revitalize me.
