a pair of TCM movies -- david copperfield and a lubitsch silent

neither of these held up very well. david copperfield or ...

The Personal History, Adventures, Experience, & Observation of David Copperfield the Younger

is interesting for one reason and one reason only. WC Fields...reciting dickens.

WC Fields + Dickens!!!!

yeah, that needed to be bolded because it was awesome. i dont know whats better, the classic WC fields delivery or the occasional british pronounced word. the rest of the movie is pretty uneventful and typical or 1930s drama. long on length and short on interesting camerawork.

on the other hand the student prince in old heidelberg is...not on the other hand at all. it is also a not very interesting but not bad lubitsch silent. its always nice to see norma shearer in something and in this crazy day and age ole norm shears (what the cool kids) is somewhat endangered. not sure what to say about this one either!

this doesnt have the lubitsch touch; for that you need to watch his later and much superior works.

um...yeah so...PRE's new album rokz. i love scream-ey noise metal or disorganized female punk. like AIDS wolf...fuck yeah. ok, im going to sleep.
