Little miss Sunshine
Mr. Bean's Holiday
I was actually serious.
Who's to say I wasn't?
Reservoir Dogs II
Children of Men, directed by Alfonso Cuaron. Everything about this movie works. The characters are believable, the plot is concise and understandable, the premise is alternately terrifying and depressing. Even Clive Owen does a good job acting as the lead hero, not a typical action hero, but someone who flinches and screams at explosions and smokes marijuana with his friends. In a world mysteriously infertile for 18 years, he embarks on a quest to save something beautiful. There are some scenes in this movie that just capture an essence - the early morning silences, the horror of battle, the disquiet of a death foretold. It's a movie that can be watched time and time again and something new, some hidden meaning will be discovered. I do not recommend you watch it, I IMPLORE you to! You will not be disappointed, for this film will be a triumphant classic in the decades to come.
Why are you following me around on an internet forum? Do I really matter that much to you, weeb?
I reply to every active topic, and try to have as much fun as possible. Stop calling me a weeb, fgt.
I guess we are too active
300 or you're a faggot
Are you joking, it's just a cluster of homosexuality and "stylish" action scenes. There is no depth to it at all, and it takes itself, bizarrely, seriously. Even with all the shamelessly over-the-top effects, it takes itself seriously.
You wouldn't know the first thing about movies, too busy watching gay porn.
Braveheart. It has teh secks, violence, and lulz.
Good, brilliant sometimes, but the (almost) final scene in which all the soldiers don't react to the most important happening in the world, is kinda stupid, and a huge let down for my suspension of disbelieving
quoting IMDB: "As Theo and Kee walk out of the building, everyone who sees the baby stands in awe and the fighting stops, many of them break into prayer. The two walk outside the building and begin to walk away. The fighting resumes."
One which I enjoy very much is "Groundhog Day", works like few others, it's a fucking Breguet
pulp fiction, enough said
But think about it. It's beautiful. They haven't seen a baby in 18 years, and that baby is basically the future of the human race. Imagine the hope, the powerful surge of raw emotion. Put yourself in their feet for a moment. The world is fated to die, you are the last of your kind. And then you see, suddenly, something everyone had lost hope about for years.
It's beautiful. I tear up every time I see that scene.
transformers 2 was the shit
Lawrence of Arabia because it inspires me to unite my people.
Eraserhead is a pretty good film. I just felt like posting that.
Yeah, I get your point.
But it works from a poetic point of view
Something like that would have been nice in a a movie like i.e. Apocalypse Now, or anyone mainly symbolic
In CoM, which tries to be basically realistic, it seems a little awkward to me
Lynch has a handful of great ones: Eraserhead, Lost Highway, Mullholland, Blue Velvet...even Wild at Heart
Inland Empire, on the other hand, was a little too much, even for him...although it has great moments too
It amused me that I consider DL the greates horror film maker ever, when he doesn't even make proper horror movies
But the chills that give me scenes like the Club Silence one in Mulholland Drive, in a good movie theater, are unsurpased to me
There's no band
The Blues Brothers
I fully agree. It is also sad that they don't make horror movies like they used to. The genre peaked in the 70's with Cannibal Holocaust, Don't Look Now, Halloween, etc.
I don't really have a favorite movie, I have a few I like more than others though.
The Fast and the Furious, 2 fast 2 furious, and tokyo drift.
Chronicles of Riddick
Kung Pow: Enter the Fist
Talledaga Nights, the Ballad of Ricky Bobby
Spirited Away (Animu movie)
Blade 1 and 2
and im REALLY the only one who notices youre a homo?
Clearly you're the only one stupid enough to believe it. And what's wrong with being a homosexual anyways? Are you prejudiced, Mr. Closeted?
The 80's would be my favorite period of horror films, if it didn't get crowded by boring "slashers" trying to milk on the success of Halloween. Anyway, they got great installments in that decade with Evil Dead, The Shining and The Thing.
True. And even the cheap slashers of the time were amusing at least. Modern horror movies (like almost all movies of the past 15 years) follow the same plot, but with different actors/monsters (or whatever is killing the college aged white girls with big tits).
