  • Mulholland Drive, David Lynch is also in the like list

  • Snatch, again Guy Ritchie

Lock, Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels remains my favourite Guy Ritchie flick, though Snatch is pretty good as well. Another good film with the same "frequency" would be Layer Cake

Nueva Reinas is definitely up there (the ending was totally awesome). I'm a big fan of Argentinian cinema, particularly works directed by Alejandro Agresti and Adolfo Aristarain.. Highlights of theirs include A Less Bad World, Valentin and Roma.

Lock and stock is great too. Nueve Reinas, you have to watch it two times then it is getting even better, there are two perspectives.

+1 for Argentinian cinema.

There are more things of Doris, she is making interesting movies, she is also a writer, she has a faible for Japan.

Re: #! Movie List

thread revival! i'm not someone who has seen a lot of classics. i hate the Godfather and i have yet to see Scarface. so i won't be repeating other people much here. the following list is not complete at all, but this is just what i remember right now. if you are interested in movies and there is one in the list below you haven't seen, by all means, go see it. i'm serious, i have great taste in movies ;D

Moon - wow.
Legends of the Fall - Brad Pitt AND Anthony Hopkins... what more do you want? it's a classic.
Coco avant Chanel - just a great movie, fantastic acting.
Amelie - one of the most beautiful movies ever and what an awesome soundtrack as well. you must see this.
Skycaptain and the World of Tomorrow - i love Jude Law, and this movie is so nicely done in a 50's style or something, and so cool and over the top, really great.
Defendor - Woody Harrelson playing a slightly retarded dude who is a superhero
Zombieland - again, Woody Harrelson. great action and comedy and zombies and funny as hell, and you also get a bit of Bill Murray too!
Natural Born Killers - what, Woody Harrelson again? and did i just glance too much or didn't anyone mention this yet? one of the greatest movies of all time imo
Death to Smoochy - love Edward Norton too, dark comedy, Robin Williams as an added bonus
American History X - Edward Norton, damn great acting and gripping story
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - when Jim Carrey does drama, he does it awesome like this. this movie makes you cry your eyes out. great soundtrack too
Superbad - one of the funniest movies i've ever seen, and please don't bitch about Michael Cera, because:
Juno - i absolutely loved it
Cyrus - so, me and my wife were in Canada and wanted to see a movie and made up some story about creditcards not working, creating a diversion, allowing us to sneak into the first door we saw. behind that door, this movie was just starting, and it was so amazingly fantastic i couldn't believe it.
Old School - gave 'Dust in the Wind' a whole new meaning... YOU'RE MY BOY BLUE!! ;D
Zoolander - ok comedies will get you in disagreements over taste for sure, but i loved this one. it is what the kids would nowadays call 'epic'. the idea of the 'Blue Steel' look can be seen with celebs everywhere.
The Cider House Rules - i really loved this, and it has Michael Caine.
Machete - Roberto Rodriguez. i loved it.
Planet Terror - Robert Rodriguez, way over the top, funny and gorey and awesome.
Requiem for a Dream - wow. (and just to be clear: no, this movie isn't about 'why you should stay away from drugs'. this movie is: 'addiction looms everywhere, be damn careful')

i've most probably forgotten a lot of really great movies, but i got a lot of awesome ones here as well. hope to get the thread started up again, gotta go see more movies!

oh yeah, series:
The Singing Detective - (not the movie! the original series!) a must see if you like detectives, Michael Gambon and old music from the 20's.

edit: btw: gran torino, donnie darko, memento, inception, pi, usual suspects, big lebowsky, v for vendetta, etc etc etc... seen a lot of people mention a lot of awesome movies!

Re: #! Movie List

A lot of good movies here, many of which are favorites so I won't repeat them. One that comes immediately to mind -- because I was talking about it yesterday -- is "Robocop" (not so much for the shoot-em-up aspect, but for the satire and the underlying theme about how corporations should not be in control of public services like police).

Someone mentioned "Dr. Strangelove" earlier (a favorite of mine, too), but its "serious" twin -- "Fail Safe" -- was on yesterday on AMC. Interesting to see that one again after a few decades.

As far as TV goes, there's one show that has always stood out: Mystery Science Theater 3000, which is probably my all-time favorite television show. Great concept, great execution, hilarious stuff.

[Also, I should probably state this before it comes out in the press someday: I was the assistant script supervisor for the '90s Saturday morning comedy "Saved by the Bell" during its final season. Not a particularly good show, but an interesting experience.]

I'll second this. Watch this movie. Then after you know what's happening, watch it again. It's even better the second time.

Re: #! Movie List

^ i liked Lost. once you get started and get sucked in there's no letting go. i didn't really like the ending though, but i suppose they were kinda out of options or something.

currently watching Breaking Bad, which is good as well.

Re: #! Movie List

One movie not mentioned yet (and probably my favorite movie ever), the 1998 restored version of Orson Welles' "Touch of Evil" (1958). I think it's just as masterful and way, way more entertaining than Citizen Kane.

Re: #! Movie List

I just caught the tail end of 9 (the Tim Burton CG movie) this morning.  I didn't see enough to make heads or tails of it, but it looked interesting, even from a philosophical perspective.

Re: #! Movie List

9 is a very interesting "Man creates machines for war and machines turn on man and destoyes them" flick. The coolest part of the plot is that a scientist/toymaker (thats just what I assumed his occupation is) developed a way to transfer his soul into several purpose built dolls. It's a very dark film and the WWII setting is cool +1 and a great cast!

WOW!! I'm sorry that I came of as a movie critic  tongue

Re: #! Movie List

9 is an interesting and though-provoking film.

I just finished watching the swedish versions of "the girl with the dragon tattoo" trilogy. I have not read the books, so I don't know how faithful the films are, but I enjoyed them (and I usually hate anything trendy, so I'm glad this is an anonymous forum). If you have a chance (Netflix has them), see the swedish versions before hollywood ruins them.

And on the topic of swedish versions, the original version of "let me in" is much better than the hollywood version...
