I think it's a good idea if everyone posts some of their favorite movies or movies they just saw to each other and gives them a rating and tells about them.

Here are some flicks I recently saw

Matchstick Men- A good flick with a great twist in the end and Nicolas Cage is great. ***1/2 out of *****

Kill Bill Vol. 1- Saw it on DVD for the first time and loved it. Quentin Tarantino is great and the fight scenes are AMAZING. The blood and violence is extremely fake but still great. I'm gonna rent Vol. 2 this week. I'd give it ****1/2 out of *****

So post some of your favorites or ones you just saw.

Garden State killed last night. Not so thrilled about the very end, but until then it was GREAT. Give me Natalie Portman ANY day.

Is this the Peckinpah version with Steve McQueen, or the remake with Baldwin and Basinger? (I never saw the remake, so I'm wondering if it's worth it.)

Best movie I've seen in the last couple of weeks is Sunset Boulevard. Man, it's pretty awesome. I also liked Night of the Demon (black-and-white demon-summoning horror film -- uncut British version!) and Port of Shadows (French proto-noir with Jean Gabin, who is awesome as always -- although I like his film Grisbi best, still). Battle Royale 2 wasn't as good as the first one and had some weird political messages. And then I watched Lilo & Stitch again, too.

I second the Sunset Boulevard pick. I had an American Cinema class in college, and we had to watch that movie. I usually don't care about older movies, but this one was awesome.

In that same vein, I found the only musical that I can stand. It was of course Singing In the Rain. A great story in between all the singing.

Finally, there is a love it or hate it vibe on The Truman Show, but with the glut of reality television (like Joe Schmo), it is worth it to view a movie that foreshadows this trend. Oh, and it also features Jim Carrey's best acting work EVAR.



Joe Wilson (looking at Interocitor manual)- Hey, here's something my wife could use in the house...
Crow T. Robot- A man?
Joe Wilson- An interocitor incorporating an electron sorter.
Cal Meechum- Oh, she'd probably gain 20 pounds while it did all the work for her.
Tom Servo- Cal, you bitch!

A not so subtle attempt at a list thread, methinks, Horatio.

Really good movies:

Big Fish- stars Ewan McGregor (Star Wars I,II,III). The story is told like only Tim Burton can tell a story. Very interesting visual effects to tell of a great story teller's life.

Suicide Kings- stars Christopher Walker (too many movies to mention, Pulp Fiction fans remember him with the watch up his butt). A retired mob boss is kidnapped by a group of friends needing money to pay a ransom for a kidnapped sibling. Good twists and turns throughout the movie, with Dennis Leary providing some comic relief.

Any Kevin Smith movie:
Clerks- Classic

Mallrats- He sold out to make it, but it is funny.
Chasing Amy- Classic

Dogma- If you don't like this movie, you need to read the Bible more!

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back- Watch all the rest first, then this one is 10 times funnier.

I did not see the Beniffer new one, so I will hold off.

The first reply in this thread was by a mod, so I don't think there's too much of a problem. As for my recommendations, I suggest Six-String Samurai if you're in the mood for a neat kung-fu action/humor piece, or The Most Terrible Time in My Life if you'd like to see a Japanese noir film.

I'm really into pool and saw an ad for 'The Color of Money' on TV and checked it out and I really liked it. It convinced me Tom Cruise is a good actor, little did I realise it was the sequel to 'The Hustler' which I saw afew years back and didn't like that much mainly because I was around 12, if I watch it today im sure i'll love it, but 'The Color of Money' is very good.

My first reaction was that this would (hopefully) be more the W's equivelent to the MOVIES FOR GUYS WHO LIKE MOVIES thread in Jake C. Dawg's forum (at Del-fee) than it would be a list thread...at least I'd hope so.

While I agree with Kill Bill vols 1&2 being great, if you want Tarrantinos best work as a screenwriter, I would suggest TRUE ROMANCE. Has one of the best scenes ever on tape with Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken discussing the enthnic heritage of Sicillians.

Some other lesser know movies I would recomend (well, probably not LESSER known, but not as successful) would be:

"Tree's Lounge" Steve Buscemi is awesome in this flick.

"Floundering" a movie from 1992 or 3 about a guy living in LA right after the Rodney King Riots and his crazy life.

"Under The Cherry Moon" Prince and Jerome are hilarious in this movie, so underrated!





Thank you for your irrelevant opinion.

Dead Alive (Unrated)
Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky

I should mention that neither of these are for the squeamish (Dead Alive features zombie babies, dog eating, and zombie on zombie sex. Riki-Oh has exploding heads, someone tying their own tendons together with their teeth, and about 3 or 4 eyes being popped out) but they are far and away the funniest two movies I have ever seen.

Dead Alive was done by Peter "LotR" Jackson (and financed by the NZ government). Riki-Oh was used in the infamous "exploding head" intro to the 5 questions on the Daily Show.

Yeah, but sometimes I reply first, ponder listyness later.
