Film Bucket List

I started compiling a film bucket list a couple of years ago. The official name of my list is "There's No Way I Could Not Have Seen That Movie" list. What they all have in common is that they are guy movies that my wife would never want to watch with me. Some are classics; some are puerile movies like Dumb and Dumber. I finally watched one of the movies on my list, streamed from Netflix: Unforgiven.

OK, I know neither of these are "guy movies," but I must ask you two questions:

1) As a Beatles fan, have you ever seen the movie Across the Universe, and if so, what do you think of it?

I've found hardcore Beatles folks rather divided on it with extremes at each sides, though it's personally one of my favorite movies.

Also, a movie that one cannot go wrong with: Baraka. Have you ever seen Baraka? Gah, that's my primary favorite movie. I'd suggest it, but you've got to not be...expecting the usual sort of hollywood cinematographic entertainment.

Of course, you've got your movie bucket to go through so doubtless won't get around to any of those any time soon, if ever, but just throwing them out there.

I absolutely adored Across the Universe, and I am as hard-core Beatle fan as they get. Loved the imagery in the film, thought it was a great adaptation, and, of course, you could not beat the music.

I have put Baraka on my list of movies to check out, based on your recommendation. I'll let you know what I think when I see it.
