leaving las vegas
fear and loathing in las vegas
one flew over the cukoo's nest
Leon
(I could go on forever.....)

requiem for a dream,
me and you and everyone we know,

think im gonna have to watch it now. DAMN!!!


i_wear_the_trousers - 20-11-2005 at 20:06

The Third Man is the best film of all time.

Breakfast at Tiffany's, however, is crap, and is a pitiful schmaltzy sanitised rehash of the book, which is badass.


Becka - 20-11-2005 at 20:10

Rosemary`s Baby


Dr. Rob - 20-11-2005 at 20:37

Dead Man, Down By Law and The Funeral are three of my favourite films.

And now you know!


AntManBee - 20-11-2005 at 23:15

I recommend that you all watch Tarnation, because it is brilliant.

That's the point on a rainy sunday afternoon i want some schmaltz and romance. I am not holding it up as the pinnacle of the movie industry but i can't think of a better film to watch on a cold sunday to just sit back and enjoy without having to think too much but at the same time still be interested in the story. Whilst i agree with you that the book is probably better that doesn't mean that the film is shit it is simply different

the only film I could think of beginning with 'x' was 'Xtro' - tagline 'not all extraterrestrials are friendly' but it's fucking shocking and wasn't going on.

Also Ira Levin, who wrote it, is one of the most criminally unknown popfiction thriller people in the world ever. He's written A Kiss Before Dying, The Boys From Brazil, Rosemary's Baby, The Stepford Wives, basically books that have made films that hit the zeitgeist spot on. Also 'This Perfect Day' which amazingly has never been filmed but is the best dystopian book ever. Fact.

Are you the guy who work's in my local video shop in Worthing? Because everytime we go in he tries to get us to get it out because he loves it so much. Having watched it I can't believe anyone else would like it?!

Actually it's only redeeming feature is the depressed guy who they move to the basement, whose name I cannot remember, that is quite amusing.

On another note - we watched Together yesterday which I rather liked.

Yep. I watched Barton Fink again the other week for the first time in a few years, it's brilliant.

Also yep. I still think that Hannah and her Sisters is my favourite of his, although I've fallen for The Purple Rose of Cairo a bit more recently.

Please see Gareths post about the funny email.

And also please note I left the ' out on purpose.


citizen_erased - 22-11-2005 at 01:34

Did anyone see 'Stoned' in the SU bar on Sunday? I planned to see it, however they took so long to set it up I left. I hope I didn't miss anything special.

EternalLife - 22-11-2005 at 11:57

Baseketball
Orgazmo
Team America

I love Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Baseketball is my favourite though.

Leon, because it's just so good.
True Romance, because it's got one of those great casts where you're guaranteed to love one of them.
Dog Soldiers
Rapid Fire, because you can play the drinking game that Sam and I made up, where you have to do a shot every time someone says 'Son of a bitch!'


thelikelylad - 23-11-2005 at 01:32

watched a film called 'hue and cry' for one of my courses. It must said that it is a classic. the first ealing comedy so a definite must if this is your sort of thing


MR CHATTERBOX - 23-11-2005 at 23:26

Just go round to Corrine's. She has the best DVD/Video collection i've seen. She has enough to open her own rental shop.

Watching her Sid and Nancy was awesome. If a little over the top of the punk years. And Nancy was trés annoying even to poor Sid. So I can understand why anyone would want to kill her.

I'm pushing the bullshit needle dangerously close to critical here, to be honest. I was around in the late 70s but only in a 'less than 10' kind of way.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - awesome feel-good 80s film
Back to the Future trilogy - see above
Life is Beautiful - so funny and touching
Lost in Translation - obvious, but I love it
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - ditto
Requiem for a dream - down and down we go! The desperation of the film is beautifully mirrored by the soundtrack
Shaun of the Dead - cockacidal maniac. I laugh everytime at this film. And I watch it with the commentary on sometimes.
Goundhog Day - "PHIL?!" *smack* I got you babe. One of Bill Murray's best films evvvver. Closely followed by...
Ghostbusters 1 & 2. Venkman owns you.
Ringu - so tense, especially when she's down the well. When the ghost climbs out of the TV it's probably the ultimate "Oh SHIT!" moment commited to celluloid.
I got more. But they'll have to be later.

Ah, thank you! I saw you listed some Matt Stone and Trey Parker films, I love them too, especially Orgasmo, me and Gareth used to make everyone watch it in our second year. Have you seen Cannibal the musical? It's not the best, obviously, but it has flashes of the genius that would come!

Transformers: The Movie is one of only 2 films that made me cry when Optimus Prime died (I was 7!) The other if you are interested is Project X, the Matt Broderick movie about miltary experiments on chimpanzees.

Blazing Saddles is a must... as for Top Gun, my girlfriend would love you. The whole less than subtle undertones to that movie are hilarious.

Lets just say I am not speaking of a Feargal Sharkey cameo role. The volleyball scene says it all...

I saw a very good italian film the other day : L'ingorgo (it means traffic jam).
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077734/ ,this page sums up the plot if you're interested.

I see very few foreign films (american movies are not really foreign are they ?) so here's a list of what I suggest. These of course should be watched in their original version.

Wings of desire (by Wim Wenders)
Goodbye Lenin
Anything by Ingmar Bergman (Persona and Höstsonaten are my personal favourites)
The man without a past by Aki Kaurismäki
Amores Perros
Rocco and his brothers (great great film)
The lovers of the arctic circle
The marriage of Maria Braun
Talk to her


waghorn - 28-3-2006 at 09:57

Heathers is a good film too.

it's all about orgazmo, closely followed by team america and baseketball. although all three of those films are comic genius


Maverick - 28-3-2006 at 10:59

i think south park, bigger, longer, uncut is best than team america. that said, the latter rules simply for the line:

Brandon Lee was great. I have 2 calendars and the action figure that talks...

I have some US collector cards and liked the first movie (second was poor though with the guy looking like Dr. Frankenfurter)

Suprised by the inclusion of Velvet Goldmine though. I was really disappointed when I saw it but then I built it up really big in my mind back at the time of it's release. And apart from Brian it does also have Ant from Spacehog in it which is a result

I refuse to watch any of the later Crow movies.

I love Velvet Goldmine And Michael Stipe produced it so I had to watch it initially It's just the Christian Bale/Ewan McGregor/Jonathan Rhys Meyers combo, I really like them all.

'No Surrender', an Alan Bleasdale film which is entirely different to 'No Defeat No Surrender', is completely brilliant if pretty bleak.

Agreed and Jean Claude Van Damme as 'The Russian' is superb. His face when he headbutts the fat kid at the end. So funny!

my favourite bit is when he breaks the leg at the start and the sensei lets off this scream. classic!! i was in stiches for ages. equally as hilarious is 'Commando', especially 'i eat green berets for breakfast, and im dead hungry'

Undertones?


Yep, undertones. In the words of Quentin Tarantino...

You want subversion on a massive level. You know what one of the greatest fucking scripts ever written in the history of Hollywood is? Top Gun. Top Gun is fucking great. What is Top Gun? You think it's a story about a bunch of fighter pilots. It is a story about a man's struggle with his own homosexuality. It is! That is what Top Gun is about, man. You've got Maverick, all right? He's on the edge, man. He's right on the fucking line, all right? And you've got Iceman, and all his crew. They're gay, they represent the gay man, all right? And they're saying, go, go the gay way, go the gay way. He could go both ways. Kelly McGillis, she's heterosexuality. She's saying: no, no, no, no, no, no, go the normal way, play by the rules, go the normal way. They're saying no, go the gay way, be the gay way, go for the gay way, all right? That is what's going on throughout that whole movie... He goes to her house, all right? It looks like they're going to have sex, you know, they're just kind of sitting back, he's takin' a shower and everything. They don't have sex. He gets on the motorcycle, drives away. She's like, "What the fuck, what the fuck is going on here?" Next scene, next scene you see her, she's in the elevator, she is dressed like a guy. She's got the cap on, she's got the aviator glasses, she's wearing the same jacket that the Iceman wears. She is, okay, this is how I gotta get this guy, this guy's going towards the gay way, I gotta bring him back, I gotta bring him back from the gay way, so I'll do that through subterfuge, I'm gonna dress like a man. All right? That is how she approaches it. All right, but the REAL ending of the movie is when they fight the MIGs at the end, all right? Because he has passed over into the gay way. They are this gay fighting fucking force, all right? And they're beating the Russians, the gays are beating the Russians. And it's over, and they fucking land, and Iceman's been trying to get Maverick the entire time, and finally, he's got him, all right? And what is the last fucking line that they have together? They're all hugging and kissing and happy with each other, and Ice comes up to Maverick, and he says, "Man, you can ride my tail, anytime!" And what does Maverick say? "You can ride mine!" Swordfight! Swordfight! Fuckin' A, man!

Finally someone who shares my love for this awful martial arts b-movie. Gotta love the 2 fingered press ups and the break dancing though as well as...

'Beat it bursy!'.... what the hell is that all about! I really wanna watch this again now.

I was only joking about the undertones, but that is a pretty good summary from QT (even though I think he's a cock).
