Band Of Brothers (a short TV series, but pretty neat!)
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey
Dawn of the Dead (try the newer remake, it's good!)
Night of the Comet
Night of the Living Dead
Return of the Living Dead
Shaun of the Dead (I've seen it 72 times now)
Rosencrantz And Gildenstern Are Dead
Evil Dead 1 & 2
Army of Darkness
Princess Bride
Dark Crystal
Road Warrior 2
Mad Max, Beyond the Thunderdome
Willow
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Snatch
Bubble Boy
KPAX
Red Dwarf (another good series)
Super Troopers

Hmm.. that's just right off the top of my head. I actually don't watch a lot of movies because I think most of them are crap. I pretty much like horror or comedy (or a mixture of the two, which most horror turns out to be anyway), so there's a few of those.
Cheers!

I have a long list, but the best recent film I've seen was "Invincible" with Mark Wahlburg. It's a football film, not my usual genre, but a great movie anyway. The soundtrack was awesome as well.

Plunkett & Macleane

Very funny and very witty movie with excellent performances from all, its a bit like Lock Stock with Frilly Cuffs :lol: while it's amusing with 90's style dialogue in a 18th century setting, its strange to think they 'cussed' so much back then.

i like movies with lowbrow humor. they are great for when you are feeling down and need a good, easy laugh without having to think!

the Farrelly brothers:
There's Something About Mary
Dumb & Dumber
Shallow Hal
Outside Providence
Stuck With You
The Ringer
Me, Myself & Irene
Say It Isn't So
Fever Pitch [NOT the UK one although that one is lovely.]
Kingpin

as you can see, i'm a Farrelly Brothers fan! but their movies are hilarious!

and the Coen brothers:
The Big Lebowski
O, Brother Where Art Thou?
Raising Arizona
Fargo

Judd Apatow:
40 Year Old Virgin
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
Fun With Dick & Jane
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

those oughta keep ya busy for a few weeks!!! *LOL*

oh, and i love Janeane Garofalo. her movies are kick ass! my favorite is The Truth About Cats & Dogs.

I have just watched Harsh TimesImage. It is superb. Just what I look for in a movie. It keeps frightening the pants off me in bits. What a great film.



I just saw 'Before Sunset' Image and didn't know what to make of it, it has amazing reviews all over the place, I guess you have to be in the mood. I kind of was like: 'I should enjoy this a lot more'.

'The King' Imagewas pretty good, you would prolly like that.

'Heat'Image ImageImage Imageis probably my favourite movie of all time. Firstly, it has heists, which I love. 2, the characters are all amazing, fully fleshed out and fully formed. 3, the action scenes are amazing. 4, It is immaculately shot, a work of cinema genius. Go Michael Mann! Never let yourself get attached to anything..............

I liked 'Out of Time' Image with Denzel Washington, thought this was well crafted.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Image still wows me, a really terrific work.

And the film that really really wowwed me was 'The Machinist', Imageanother Christian Bale film, I love that kind of surrealist stuff, great movie. This pic is used in a lot of promotional stuff for the film, actually it's a one second shot that holds the whole film together.

I had a liason with Christian Bales first ever screen partner a while back, my only claim to fame lol
