"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" directed by Michel Gondry- so good, so good, even with Jim Carrey (don't be misguided- he is acting here, not only showing his crazy grimaces)

And newer one- "The Science of Sleep" is worth watching too.

The Big Lebowski- one of the funniest movies ever- Coen brothers at their best. Plus there is a scene in which You can hear Debbie Reynolds singing her "Tammy" :)

Riri Shushu no subete (All About Lily Chou-Chou)- 146 mins of visual beauty, coldness of this world and mystical Lily Chou Chou :arrow: great film.

oh and by the way if you liked Shaun of the dead (if you haven't seen it run now to your nearest film store and rent it) you should check out their tv show with the same gang.. Its called Spaced


And you'll want to watch Hot Fuzz, their new film too...


Surprised not to see a mention of the amazing Pan's Labyrinth.... find a way to watch it as soon as possible, to salve all your Spanish civil war/fantasy film needs.

yeah, I can recommend this one too 8)


Mah nakorn (Citizen Dog) from 2004.

The (love) story is quite ordinary and boring, but there are few unforgettable characters like smoking teddy, (he got addicted because of his little owner) teddys owner who only talks to people who have mobile phones, and dead bike driver who still drives "because he likes to" :)

And where else You can see the rain of motorcyclists helmets?

Too bad, sometimes this movie looks too much like "Amelie from Montmartre"

I watched Children of Men earlier this week and thought that it was a bit shit, frankly.

However, there's a bit at the beginning where they're looking almost directly through my office window in Whitehall, which was quite cool.

really thought it was shit? Oh wow, erm ...

Wes Anderson has a new movie coming out some time this year, it's supposed to be stop motion. I'm not sure if it'll be good or not, but I sure hope so.

I'll have to agree with two of these posters, Pan's Labyrinth and Children of Men were excellently done. Keeping Mum was also quite nice. "M" is a great older film, in German, but really top-notch.

Daft Punk's Electroma
Robots try to be humans.
A bit rough, slow, and quite difficult to watch, without any Daft Punk song in the soundtrack (which is the most beautiful i have ever heard) :arrow: but probably one of the best things i have ever seen!
I'm in love with them. Again :)

Grindhouse/ Death Proof
2 movies for the price of one :) That's not all- also a couple of fake trailers- which are even better than the movies :D Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez at their best. (and great OST's as always)

i'm so alone here, in this thread :cry: :lol:

"Flashdance" (1983)

the movie is nothing special really- except the soundtrack from Giorgio Moroder and a couple of dancing scenes- btw- the last one reminded me of SILY video clip 8)

Not here, but I've been a fan for years. Blacker than black comedy; I love it.
