    Considering there is a music thread, I figured why not start a movie thread? What are your favorites, what have you seen lately? what's good?

    My favorites:
    The Boondock Saints
    Snatch
    Layer Cake
    Trainspotting
    Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels
    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    nice taste there!

    well my collection is kinda small, but only high quality:
    The godfather I, II and III
    Taxi Driver
    Scarface
    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
    Hokuto Shin Ken (fist of the northstar)
    Akira

    my favourite list is kinda long, but this are some of them:
    Snatch
    Lock stock... (you know the rest)
    Usual suspects
    Castle in the sky (saw it last week, awesome japanese cartoon movie)
    Pulp Fiction
    Kill Bill (for me it's one big movie)
    Lost Highway
    Kakashi
    House of flying daggers
    Crouching tiger hidden dragon
    Heat
    Jackie Brown
    Reservoir Dogs
    ...

    at one time I had seen every freaking movie in the local videostore, I got the new films that came out, the day before they where for rent

    I forgot about that. I've seen it sooo many times, and each time you always seem to find something new about the movie.

    Also "Fight Club" is one of my favorites.

    A Clockwork Orange is a great movie as well. This thread is helping refresh my memory of movies I should watch again.

    I just finished reading the book, which I found sooo much more F'd up than the film..
    I guess I forgot to mention:
    Dawn Of The Dead
    Army Of Darkness
    The Life Aquatic
    The Royal Tenenbaums
    Rushmore
    Bottle Rocket...(anything Wes Anderson has done pretty much)

    why did you find the book more twisted? because i completely agree with you. for me, it was the fact that he just goes back to how he really was, like the treatment hadn't even happened.

    the book was better than the movie anyway

    that and the language used made for a really uncomforable read (in a good sense) and yeah the book was much much better than the film, which was still good.
    I find that with Irvine Welsh as well, Trainspotting was much better to read than to watch.

    alot of people have that with books and movies...
    myself personally, can't get myself to read the books because after like five minutes I'm getting nervous and want to do something else, short time attention span I guess...
