  • Updated 3 months ago
Currently, I have rated 993 titles, I want to watch a good movie as my 1000th, but I have no ideas currently if any of you as suggestions, it would be appreciated.

 My 500th was Lawrence of Arabia (1962).

Great suggestions, I have already seen To Kill a Mockingbird and Rope. A few months ago Doctor Zhivago was on Netflix, but I think that is gone now.

Lol, It is a fun suggestion, but I don't believe that I will easily be able to find it in this pandemic crisis.

I have heard about this from the book "1001 films à voir et à revoir", but the fact that it is rated NC-17 and often considered as a "trash" movie doesn't attract me.

You've rated them, but you need to watch them?
I guess you mean re-watch.
Here's the next tier:

I mean that in the first link that you posted there are many movies that have not watched, if I have not watched them, I have not rated them.

https://www.imdb.com/user/ur91650024/ratings

Topper Returns (1941)
A fun-loving young woman is murdered after trading bedrooms with her wealthy friend. Her ghost seeks aid from Topper to find the murderer.

Born Yesterday (1950)
A tycoon hires a tutor to teach his lover proper etiquette, with unexpected results.

Allegro non troppo (1976)
An enthusiastic filmmaker thinks he's come up with a totally original idea: animation set to classical music! When he is informed that some American named "Prisney" (or something) has already done it, he decides to do his own version, using an orchestra comprising mostly old ladies and an animator he's kept locked in a dungeon. Several different classical pieces are animated, while the animator plots his escape.

Lifeboat (1944)
Several survivors of a torpedoed merchant ship in World War II find themselves in the same lifeboat with one of the U-boat men who sunk it.

It is funny that you suggest Topper Return, it was on TV yesterday. I saw some bits because my TV was on but I didn't pay attention because I was commenting on the forum.

If you've never seen "One-Eyed Jacks", a fascinating tale of delayed revenge, which is the only film that Marlon Brando ever directed (he also stars in it, along with Karl Malden), that movie would be at about the top of my list of movies that many cinephiles haven't even managed to catch up with.
One-Eyed Jacks is also one of the very few westerns which takes place by the seashore (it was filmed on Monterey peninsula in California, and its VistaVision cinematography, by the great Charles Lang looks AMAZING on the Criterion Collection's Blu-ray edition of the film, which came out in 2016. For many years, "One-Eyed Jacks" was in the public domain, and the only home video versions of it available to film fans, were awful looking DVDs sometimes seen in $3 video bins. But then Martin Scorsese enlisted the help of his friend, Steven Spielberg, to have a total restoration done of the film, and Criterion got to present the incredible results of that restoration to its home video customers, by securing the Blu-ray rights to this fascinating western. And as Martin Scorsese says in his intro to the film, on the Criterion Collection BD, many people,  back in 1961, waited for the movie's release, with much anticipation, expecting a Marlon Brando directed movie to violate conventions usually found in Hollywood westerns, which often stuck to certain set formulas. And as Scorsese says in his introduction, "We expected something different, and that's just what he got." Mr Scorsese also notes there are scenes that seem fresh, instead of going over tired old ground.

Also, of note, is the fact that "One-Eyed Jacks" was Paramount's last movie shot in the VistaVision, the high quality film format that Paramount had originally developed. VistaVision is considered to be a widescreen film format, although it's 1.85 to 1 aspect ratio presents an image on modern widescreen TVs that displays very thin black bars at the top & bottom of the TV's screen, that are barely noticeable. And Martin Scorsese has long said, in interviews, that he considers VistaVision to be the best quality film format that Hollywood films were ever shot in,  because of its amazing ability to present an image which is very sharp and detailed in both the foreground and background at the same time. Suffice it to say that if I had to come up with a list of my favorite 5 westerns, "One-Eyed Jacks" would definitely be among them, plus I really appreciate the quality of the Criterion Collection Blu-ray, because even though the movie was filmed a full 6 decades ago, the image it displays on our 80 inch screen, is as much an example of demo worthy material, as Blu-rays of recently made movies are.
