I thought Match Point was really good (might have just been the English accents though =P ), and Scoop was just about okay. The older Woody Allen movies I’ve only caught bits here and there on television (when I used to watch TV on TV). It’s like watching a bunch of conversations. I love that feel in a movie. “Real people” just talking, with breaks and pauses and stutters, has that improv kind of feel to it. Of course, since these are also written by Woody Allen, there are awesome one-liners and plenty good many-liners. Kinda how I would want to make a movie.

I have no idea how to rate this. Or any of the older Woody Allen movies. I really like them. I really do.

I’m very interested in the movies that Woody Allen acts in as well. Again, I am totally drawn by how one person can write, direct and act in the same production.

I would love to get my hands on the screenplay/script of Manhattan, or any of the older Woody Allen movies.

Next to watch: Manhattan Murder Mystery (because I remember watching bits of this on TV, it was funny), Everyone Says I Love You (Edward Norton), Annie Hall (said to be one of his best).
