Has anyone said a film from John Waters? Good. Don't. Overrated and boring sack of peanuts, is a good way to describe his films. Pink Flamingoes isn't the grossest film you've seen.

Freaks, for some reason or another, made me really uncomfortable. I guess it was those pinhead girls dancing around the torso-guy in the forest.. Also, the end sequence in the rain and where all the freaks are crawling around, chasing the girl..

I'll recommend it, though. It's just one of those films that you have to see.. Like Nosferatu or Faces Of Death. The latter being a fantastic piece of hilarity for stoned teenagers. The former being a film for serious black skivvy inner-suburb pretentious artists.

Has anyone seen War and Peace..? The 1968 soviet version, directed by Sergei Bondarchuk. I've yet to track it down locally and have been dying to see it for years. I'd love to watch it on the big-screen, though. It'd definately be an experience..

As a change of pace, a film that nobody should EVER see is the Stephen King adaptation 'Dreamcatcher', with Morgan Freeman in it. I wish I hadn't been made to sit through that disgusting overacted mishmash of fetid crap. It stole two hours of my life. I still have no idea what the hell it was about and I don't want to - all I needed to know was that there were parasitic anus creatures and an intellectually disabled kid who turns into an alien superhero thing for no reason. Insane.

Huh... has anyone mentioned Amelie, yet? Probably one of the only films I've ever seen where I get a several day long buzz after seeing it. And, given my usual dour disposition, this should be as resounding an endorsment as can be imagined.

well... these need to be mentioned.
-The machinist
-Braindead, Meet the Feebles etc.
-In china they eat dogs (Danish), and the sequel: -Old men in new cars (strangely enough Danish too)
maybe you only need to see the last two if your a Dane, but still...

SJMoron, I loved Amelie. My younger sister made me watch it. I was resistant because I normally don't enjoy anything that doesn't have at least one helicopter crash or swordfight or swordfight onboard a crashing helicopter. Anyway, I'm glad she did because it touched me... and not in the bad Catholic priest way, in the good *contented sigh* way. Also, I fell in love with Audrey Tautou.

Haven't seen her in The Da Vinci Code yet. I'll see it after I finish the book. I wasn't gonna read it, but I bowed to pressure. Not the best thing I've ever read (or written for that matter), but well-researched.
Does the movie suck as much as everyone says?

I haven't read the book and I don't think I ever will read or see the movie, I heard the movie was kind of stupid, and I don't want to read a book for the sole fact that everyone else has

Waking Life is a good one. I make my friends all watch "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" as well.

It's not bad but if you're gonna see a movie based on Hunter Thompson, "Where the Buffalo Roam" is slightly better, maybe I'm just a bigger fan of Bill Murray than Johnny Depp

Well, I saw it the other day. It shouldnt have been slated as much as it was like, cause it wasnt really that bad. Not the best film Ive ever seen ever, but enough to keep me occupied.

No one seems to have mentioned Psycho so I will. It's a really good film with a great twist ending(even though most likely everybody knows it by now).

It's a completely non-sensical film based upon a weekend Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson (God rest his filthy socks) spent in Las Vegas covering some completly unimportant event or another. It's incomprehensible, very quotalbe, and can definately hold the attention... if for no other reason than the psychadelic visuals.

I saw a film last night called Infernal Affairs 2 It's a trilogy and the 3rd one's on right now on TV but the 2nd one was so long I couldn't be assed to watch the 3rd tonight thinking that it might be on just as long. I'll just get them on dvd or something.

But yeah , it's brilliant. It's about 2 gangs in Japan who want to rule Hong Kong. Mafias ,undercover cops , brutal killings , it's got it all. Fantastic film  smile
