Hi Chuck!

I've emailed DougO to let him know that you're waiting. It may take a day or so for him to upgrade your account depending on how busy he is.

Welcome!

Jan

Welcome Kubriknut! As a further greeting I will tell you that I just watched Fear and Desire. Overall I was disappointed and a bit confused. I went into this film blind to everything about it other than the fact it is a Kubrik film. I don't ever recall reading much about it, but I sure plan to now.

Hi Looney! Fear and desire is among a few Kubrick pieces (along with Flying Padre and Day of the Flight with a couple others) that really don't do much for me. I have found that his experiences on Spartacus helped shape him into the filmmaker that created what most people consider to be the masterpieces of his career (basically - the stuff everyone's heard of). I don't usually base my opinion on an artist solely on the "popular" stuff but I think Krubrick can be safely judged in this way as those are really the movies that are wholly his own and not overly shaped by interfering studios and overbearing actors. I'd be happy to discuss anything Kubrick with you (or anyone really) - but I'm not quite sure this is the appropriate venue. Sadly I don't know of anywhere else to go now that IMDB has turned us out into the cold but if you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them!

Hi Kubricknut, welcome here, and there is always the off topic section for all sorts of discussion, so you can just fire away there, about Kubrick.

Yep Kubricknut. Like babylonlurker said, if you ever want to discuss anything non-JMS just head to the Off-Topic section.

Hi, Ben12,

Can you tell me more about your fandom before you can be upgraded? Thanks.
