Oh, I give a hoot . . .

Hey,

I'm a film freak. I've actually seen most of the films on your list and own some as well. I could do two hours on this list (BTW, some of the movies are mentioned on my website). The only comment that I absolutely positively have to make is if you like Jean Luc Godard's "Breathless" then you must see "Band of Outsiders" by him as well. It's a very smart list.

rip

I think if you rip them all under 700mb, you could almost barely squeeze them all onto your 80GB iPod. If you don't care to watch them on an external display, I think you could rip them much smaller, and they'd easily all fit. Does this strike anyone else as ... impossible? (even though it isn't)

Oh, please . . .

Hey,

Watch Stanley Kubrick or Godard or Kurosawa on an iPod? This is not a good idea. Adam Sandler on an iPod, I got no problem with that. TV shows, ok on an iPod. This is not the upside of technology when you reduce the visual genius of some filmmakers to a disposable visual medium. This isn't a snob rant. It's about actually experiencing the film. Good films need that.

months later . . .

when I've worked my way through what I've got so far . . .

NetFlix is like a candy store, I just don't know where to stop. I'm quite addicted already.

Heh, re: "Band of Outsiders" - great! After adding that and all the other flics I spotted along with it, my list now has 118 items. ;D

re: rip - I've got about 100GBs of cinema on a server disk already, generally ripped at about 1mb/s, and I just bought a couple more 180GB SCSI drives so I have enough room. I don't have a video iPod, but I do tend to watch films (at home) on computers rather than on televisions. I've never warmed up to watching film on NTSC screens nor do I think I'd watch anything worthwhile on an iPod, at least not the first time through.

where to watch . . .

Hey,

I love to watch DVDs on my Pismo. Or Lombard. Great screens. With headphones. Living in NYC, going to the movies can be a major PITA. I watch VHS on my Beige G3. That I might replace with a TV. You're in for some great flicks. Have fun.

oh, alright.

I don't think it will be too long before handhelds include tiny bright contrasty HD projectors. Sure, nearly 9 minutes of battery power doesn't really impress... but for an 11ft screen I'll bring along the ac adapter.

I think a quality 8-pass rip at 640x480 would be tolerable on a SDTV, say a 38" tube. But your right... even then I wouldn't want that to be my only copy.
