    Boasting you couldn't sit through a Silent seems kinda like touting not being able to read a book or sit still for ten minutes.

    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Metropolis are among my favorite films (both silent, obviously).

    Mel Brooks made a silent movie in the late '70's. It was about a Hollywood director who wanted to make a silent movie. It was called Silent Movie. And it was okay if you like Mel Brooks' humor style.

    Sometimes I have to remind myself that some football fans are intellectually retarded.

    One of the last Marty Feldman movies.. Loved that guy.
    I used to have a cool flipbook for this film.
    I'm sure it would be quite collectible these days..

    I can't do silent movies. I can't watch really old movies. Gone With the Wind is the exception.

    Quick, insult me! Also, Drive was the best movie of 2011.
