    Of course, a blind rabbit working with deaf rats and no film could make a better film than Kubrick. Yes them's fighting words, but I've been forced at some point to sit through virtually every film Kubrick has made and not found even one that was worth the time invested in the initial viewing. Full Metal Jacket came close, but then there was that whole second half that ground the story to a screaming, screeching halt.

    The Shining is the reason I moderately regret having voted for Kubrick.

    Well, for the record, I didn't hate the second half of Full Metal Jacket; I just didn't like it as much as the first half. Still a good film on balance, one of the only Kubrick works I feel that way about. His best, to me, anyway is Dr. Strangelove. Otherwise, I can at least recognize skill in movies that didn't speak to me.

    Yeah, as much as I hate it - knowing you guys are going to vote for Nolan - I would encourage everyone to vote their heart. I mean, vote what you like, what you love, what you admire, vote what you feel... The means vote your heart. That's what I've been doing.

    Same here, although I still love the film. Also, Vincent D'Onofrio's slow descent into madness as Pvt. Pyle is one of the most chilling performances I've ever seen.

    Kubrick's Barry Lyndon, because it's just a work of pure art, each frame is beautiful to look at like a painting.
