YOU WANNA PIECE OF ME??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

RE: movies | from ashley bergJan 22 2003 - 16:34

a guilty pleasure of mine, as of late, has been ZOOLANDER.

if you can get past the horrid plot (to kill the prime minister of malaysia in order to preserve child labor and hence, lower garment costs) and ben stiller's rather pretentious acting.. there's some funny writing and off-kilter humor which lead to some over-the-top laughs... i think this film got, at best, "one star", but then again, what the f*&k do the critics know anyway ???

Thanks, Dan.

The headless eyes. Classic D horror film. Amazing acting performances.

RE: movies | from ckJan 22 2003 - 08:51

This is slightly off topic, but one of my favorite movies of all time is Privilege, starring Paul Jones (lead singer of Manfred Mann) and Jean Shrimpton. I've never been able to find it on video, and I'm wondering if anyone knows how I might obtain a copy of it. It was filmed in the UK in 1967. Thanks.

RE: movies | from pyotrJan 21 2003 - 13:28

I know it is pure cheese, I know it doesn't hold a candle to the book, I know the acting is less than great, but I still can't get over "High Fidelity". Brilliant. Read the book too...

"People worry about kids playing with guns, and teenagers watching violent videos; we are scared that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands -- literally thousands -- of songs about broken hearts and rejection and pain and misery and loss."

Fisher king.

RE: movies | from JimmyJan 18 2003 - 02:21

Blade Runner has always been and will continue to be my favorite movie, which I can watch over and over and over again.

But, there's others...

Shawshank Redemption, City of Lost Children (French), Alien, Unforgiven, Office Space, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, River Runs Through It, Seven, Seventh Seal (Swedish), Ridicule (French)...and more that I can't think of

Mullholland Drive
American History X
Donnie Darko
Life as a House
Waking Life

As Good as it Gets
& lots more I can't think of right now...

RE: movies | from pyotrJan 09 2003 - 15:08

Uh, I'm a huge fan of "happy accidents". IFC film that just came out on DVD. good stuff.

RE: movies | from ckJan 09 2003 - 13:41

Yes, Dead Man, and pretty much anything else by Jarmusch, especially Mystery Train. Also, though not a great movie, The Last Movie, directed by Dennis Hopper. Stars Peter Fonda and an entire cast of peyote-crazed extras. Very strange "follow-up" to Easy Rider that pretty much destroyed Hopper's career as a director at the time. An absolute train wreck of a film.

RE: movies | from farmcafeJan 09 2003 - 09:35

amelie is great

intrument (the fugazi documentary) is equally good as has been mentioned

godfather 1 & 2 classic

Citizen Kane unbelievable for its day and the documentary that comes with the dvd is really sweet

the professional somebody else said it already, but it's just classic

christopher walken and christopher guest films always qualify

RE: movies | from Alex N.Jan 08 2003 - 19:36

I love the movie "Leaving Las Vegas." It's the only movie I've ever bought.

RE: movies | from eraserheadJan 08 2003 - 12:56

Personally I thought Evil Dead 2 was better than 1.

RE: movies | from RossJan 08 2003 - 11:12

Pretty much everything that Christopher Walken has been in. If you can find it... the direct-to-video gem "Search and Destroy" is actually probably one of the better movies ever made... that absolutely nobody saw.

RE: movies | from adam in NYCJan 08 2003 - 10:14

wow, great topic. i would have to say all time highs would be "lord or the rings" I'm surprised thats not on here yet. "Chicago" saw it last week, fucking amazing performances, "Dancer in the Dark" would love to watch it over and over but at the end i want to kill myself. "Sneakers", excellent. And the one movie i could watch forever, not to mention a great who dun it, "Star Trek 6, the Undiscovered Country" and I'm not even a big fan of the series, how that works, i don't know! OHHHHHHHHHH i almost forgot, "Donnie Darko" if you haven't seen this movie, you are really missing out.

RE: movies | from marcJan 08 2003 - 08:48

close encounters of the third kind-original version

more true to life than the x-files

ha ha ha ha

RE: movies | from ashley bergJan 08 2003 - 07:30

Dead Man (Jim Jarmusch film / amazing Soundtrack by Neil Young & beautiful cinematography)

Bottle Rocket (think I've seen it at least 50 times.. Kumar rocks the shit!)

The Big Lebowski (Cohen Bros.)

Mulholland Drive (basically, anything by "Lynch" will do..)

Pi & Requiem for a Dream (Darren Aronofsky films)

Full Metal Jacket (Kubrick, of course)

I guess I should also mention that I like war films (perhaps because I'm such a history buff...) I thought that, for the most part, last year's "We Were Soldiers" was very well done...

ooOOoo, this is fun.. let's hear your fav's people !

Absolutely LOVE Barton Fink!
That would make it on MY ten fave.

This is a great thread to jog the old memory. JB--there is much white but little of the yellow orb that sometimes visits our skies.

RE: movies | from brianJan 07 2003 - 07:01

the tank - w/jason patric about a lost russian tank unit in afghanistan.

last temptation of christ.
mrs. parker & the vicious circle.
bad influence.
drugstore cowboy.
a clockwork orange.
pump up the volume.
killing zoe.

RE: movies | from DeanJan 07 2003 - 01:24

Anyone seen Dark Days??? Fab documentary and if you have the DVD, amazing story behind the movie too.

RE: movies | from RyanJan 06 2003 - 21:03


RE: movies | from RyanJan 06 2003 - 21:02

Wow, your mom was Audrey. That's cool.

The movies I watch over and over are This is Spinal Tap (I still find something new each time)and Fast Times at Ridgemont High (underrated lowbrow classic). I don't really like to watch serious, artsy films more than once- they lose their impact.

Bad Timing:a sensual obsession (1980 Nicholas Roeg)

Ilsa: She wolf of the SS (?)
Little shop of horrors (1960 Roger Corman version starring... my MOM!)
Lonesome Cowboys (Warhol)

RE: movies | from micahJan 06 2003 - 16:37

I'll have to check out Bottle Rocket. Those Christopher Guest "mockumentaries" are thoroughly enjoyable. I loved Rushmore, never saw Evil Dead (I know, how could I not have?) or the others Rob s mentions. I'll look into them.

RE: movies | from Rob sJan 06 2003 - 15:21

The Evil Dead, Rushmore,
Harold & Maude, Night of the hunter, Miller's Crossing. I could go all day (this is not a movie).

RE: movies | from RossJan 06 2003 - 13:13

Two words:
Bottle Rocket. Greatest movie I've ever seen. Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show are worth mentioning.

RE: movies | from filmyJan 01 2003 - 17:43

directors: werener herzog, lars von trier, harmony korine. look them up at allmovie.com

RE: movies | from ckDec 30 2002 - 22:25

Here's a range of foreign films: Wings of Desire; Walkabout; Last Tango in Paris; Picnic at Hanging Rock; The Tenant; The Seventh Seal; My Left Foot; The Ruling Class.

Recent American: Bottle Rocket (actually, any Wes Anderson directed); Being John Malkovich; Memento.

??? | from micahDec 30 2002 - 18:31

what's the best movie you've ever seen? one that really reaches you. you can name more than 1 if you need to.

also, what's a movie you can watch a bunch of times and never get tired of it.
