#! Movie List

Hello all,

As like another good threads about music and Anime (very useful to meet something different) I suggest we start one about our preferred Movies and/or TV Series, whatever you like, video-based. I think this is a good place to hangout and know new stuff. So if a Moderator doesn't like the idea, no hard feelings wink

Of course, "best one" is hard to choose, so... Feel free to create a list

As first, I'll start!

Best Movie: Godfather - Trilogy
Best TV Series: IT Crowd - UK Series, about two Geeks that work in the IT Dep. of a big company.

Cheers and waiting for your say!

Re: #! Movie List

I would reword the topic name to something like "#! Movie List".  Best movie is hard to satisfy the crowds due to various tastes.

Favorite Movie as of now: Inception
Favorite TV series: Seinfeld

Re: #! Movie List

@sunfizz98, changed big_smile

A list, like Manga' and Anime' would be better than ellecting one, of course.

Re: #! Movie List

Hard to pick absolute bests. I'll narrow mine down to "Best from the last 10 years", cos I'm sure I've seen many more that I can't seem to recall right now. >_<

Movie: tie between Das Leben der Anderen & Eureka

TV Series/Sitcom: My Life in Film (was canceled after only 6eps, but I thought it was brilliant)

+1 to Big Lebowski

Surprised nobody mentioned the TV series: 24

Jack Bauer kicking down doors is a very satisfying experience.

Yes, 1954/1957 and 1997. Latter left me unimpressed. See Duerrenmatt's "The Pledge" and its remake - I prefer the original versions.

Re: #! Movie List

Senor Ivanov goes way off-topic big_smile not

well, then fill the list smile

- A Simple Plan: "Two brothers along with a buddy find a downed single-engine plane buried in the snowy woods. Inside it is a decaying pilot and a bag carrying four million dollars in one-hundred-dollar bills. The men decide to hide the money until spring when the snow is melted and the plane is found. If no one notices the missing money at that time, they will split it and live a wealthy new life. A simple plan, right? Wrong."

Re: #! Movie List

@machinebacon

The Shining, not bad but not one of the best of Kubrick.
Flash Gordon, I think the music is better than the film, was it Queen? smile
Super-size Me, was interesting, but very American style, no offense to our Americans. smile

We go on:

  • Armin of Ognjen Sviličić (Croatia)

  • Eastern Promises of David Cronenberg, a very interesting Canadian director, The Fly is also from him

  • Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul of Fatih Akin, this German-Turkish director is also very good, this one is a documentary about music in Istanbul, all styles, the soundtrack is fantastic!

  • Revolver, I love it even though others do not understand this peace of Guy Ritchie

  • Život je Čudo (La Vie est un miracle) another of Emir Kusturica (Serbia), he is crazy, I saw a concert with him and his band The No Smoking Orchestra

Agree. Caught Moon on DVD a few months ago and it was very, very impressive. Memento is without doubt a classic, for sure.
Top Gear is great comedy, Some of their "Specials" like the Vietnam and Bolivia ones were hilarious. Just make sure you don't take their actual car reviews seriously.
