Very good movie, I enjoyed watching it yesterday. Not to much action, but there were a bunch of funny moments through out the movie. A good movie, I was surprised when I found out it was made in 1958, looks a lot newer than that. Definitely the best movie I have seen this far for this class.

I enjoyed this movie. First I was shocked to learn that the great George Lucas directed the film. The comedy added to the film was a perfect touch. there were some laugh out load moments. it was not a typical samurai movie i am accustom to. great film!

I watched this movie last night with a couple of my friends. Personally I did not get this movie at all. I did not understand what was going on throughout the whole movie, could not understand the plot at all, if there was one. Did not enjoy the movie at all, a really confusing and weird movie.

The movie Eraserhead was interesting, and not in a good way. I felt disturbed, bored and disgusted all at the same time. All of these emotions might have been acceptable if I understood, even remotely, what was going on. Instead, I was completely confused. I did not understand the characters, the plot, or any of the ideas the movie was attempting to convey through symbolism. If people were to ask me to explain to them the meaning or significance of this movie I would not be able to tell them anymore than I knew prior to viewing it.
On the other hand, The Seventh Seal has been the best movie we have watched so far in my opinion. I thought this film contained an enjoyable combination of drama and humor. I also thought that the characters were more developed, likable, smart and amusing than others we've seen. The story line was also very good and I enjoyed the concept of exploring the mysteries of death as the basis of the plot, even having "death" as a character. I found myself intently watching during the serious scenes where their were dialogs about God, the devil, religion and death, and then laughing at the characters in more lighthearted scenes such as the quarrel at 1:03. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this film, especially in comparison to Eraserhead!

In just a few short years, film had gone from the moving pictures of everyday events that the Lumiere Brothers were busy cataloging to the full-fledged fantasy of George Melies. Although each shot was a long, static setup, stories were being told by putting strips of film together, also know as "editing".
