"Amelie" is great, and "A Fish Called Wanda" is really funny.

Mmm....(rubbing hands together)

Good movies? Oh, someone mentioned Run Lola Run, and I'd have to agree.

Another one, that's equally good with the same actress (Franka Potente, amazing) is called the Princess and the Warrior.

There's this scene, under a truck. Oh, my!

Go check it out!

I just saw the movie Triple X and I liked it alot. I wasnt real big on seeing it in the first place but I was really glad I did. It had great action scenes, only one real "sex" scene (It had a half naked girl dancing with a bed post) it also has a killer plot with some fantastic surprises. It's a really good date movie.

Pay it Forward is so sad at the end . I personally like funny movies like "Half Baked", "Cruel Intentions" is also good, it has Ryan Phillippe in it! There's more but I cant think of them..."Pearl Harbor" is really really good but it's kinda long.

Some movies...well, I went to see Blue Crush recently and really liked it. It had get special effects of the waves. It's like you were actually in the water. And the storyline was pretty good (I'm not sure if someone already suggested this movie.) I do not recomment Pearl Harbour (no offense). I thought it was too "Japanese are bad, Americans are good."
Enjoy! If I think of more, I'm post them.

Might as well post my list (not really in any order):

Donnie Darko
American Beauty
Requiem for a Dream
Pi
Any Monty Python flick
Run Lola Run
The Princess and the Warrior
The Usual Suspects
A Clockwork Orange
Did I mention Donnie Darko?
Cinema Paradiso
Rocky Horror
The Princess Bride
Amelie
City of Lost Children
Fight Club
Moulin Rouge
The Big Lebowski
American History X
Leon (aka The Professional)
Shawshank Redemption
And in case I forgot to mention it, Donnie Darko.

I only mention Donnie Darko so often because not enough people have seen it.
I know I left a lot out of this list. I'm sure I'll think of several more as soon as I post this.

Sorry, even though this particular post is a touch old, I couldn't resist my comment. I personally don't reccomend the movie because I thought it was a bit too "the Japanese stage an attack on a love triangle."

I love Lord of the Rings 1 and 2 and Harry Potter 1 and 2! Great movies, you should go and see it! And Catch Me If You Can was amazing. Leonardo Dicaprio did a really good comeback. He looked so good in the movie! Back with more later!

Just saw 'Catch Me If You Can' starring Tom Hanks and Leo DiCaprio. I can't stand Leo, but this time I have to give him mad props because he played the role very well. It's a good date movie, but it's not sappy, just pleasant. Good to see with friends, and it's even good enouh to see with your parents (some sex scenes, but nothing graphic at all). No gore. No explosions. It doesn't push any cinematic or technological boundaries. It's just a good old fashioned movie. You will feel good when you walk out of that cinema.

Tigress, I also could not sleep after seeing 'The Ring'! I felt soo stupid about it. Hehe, after 7 days I was like okay good, I can sleep now, hehe.

I really liked Moulin Rouge, even though a lot of people didn't. Its part of the Red Curtain Triology. It made me cry. But its really good.

If you like period pieces, I would suggest Mansfield Park, its a Jane Austen novel made into a movie and its also really good.

'Troy' was bloody awful. i'm a huge fan of Greek literature, and Homer is one of my faves. so to see this bastardization of 'The Iliad' really made my skin crawl. At least it didn't cost me $9.50 (I saw the matinee). They said "inspired' by 'The Iliad', but they should've said "Story features characters sharing the same names as characters from 'The Iliad'" Uggh. Still, if you know nothing about Greek lit, and you enjoy big, violent movies, this is a good deal. On the plus side, I gotta say Brad Pitt was an excellent choice as Achilles.

For you indie types, here's some things I've enjoyed lately:

Super-Size Me EVERYBODY needs to watch this, then eat a salad and run some laps. okay, it's horribly biased, but it's a great eye-opener. It's also pretty funny, and a little disturbing all at once. Given that teens eat a whole lot of junk food, there's not a person on this site who shouldn't watch this film!!!

Eternal Sunshine... is kinda strange, but pleasant. I felt good watching it. It's also a freaky mindtrip for those of you who have any interest in the human psyche and the philosophical implications of messing with it. Jim Carrey did a great job in this role. I hated Elijah Wood's character (which probably means he played it really well), and Kiki Dunst makes my skin crawl (they could've casted that role better). Still, Jim Carrey was good. Watch this movie with a date.

I just saw "Theatre of Blood" for the first time in about 20 years. If you like gore dashed with liberal amounts of Shakespeare, theatre critics and totally off-the wall humour it is fall-out-of-your-chair funny.

I just saw Scary Movie 3, in fact I'm watching it right now, and it is amazingly hilarious. There's no nudity or gross stuff like 1 & 2. It's really funny. You have to see it. My favorite character is Cody, all of those tormenting things happening to him...heh. RECOMMENDED

Chicago is one of my all time favorite movies. The talent and story is incredible. The sound track is killer, too. Sure, it's about killing your husband and lying to get out of jail, but it really gives you a sense of life in the 1920's, or whenever it takes place. RECOMMENDED

The Exorcist. Sure, this movie scares the crap out of me, but it is a great movie. I'm currently reading the book. The Exorcist has a great story, a couple twists in a couple parts, and it always leaves you wondering in suspense. Excellent!! I am obsessed with anything dealing with Linda Blair, William Peter Blatty, etc. The Exorcist is the best classic ever. Oh, by the the way, the special effects are incredibly real, except one part, which is an exception. RECOMMENDED

Wasn't there an older movie of The Stepford Wives, too? There was definitely a book, anyway, by Ira Levin, who also wrote Rosemary's Baby, another movie worth seeing.

butterfly effect (when it comes out)
half baked
someting's gotta give

28 days later was prety good, but nothing like it was cracked up to be. on the bright side, its more startling scary, but not scary afterward, unlike other movies like the ring (do not watch that movie cuz its friggin scary!)

Well, I'm not sure if the ones I'm going to mention have already been mentioned as I have not read all the posts. But, I loved Donnie Darko, Requiem For A Dream (even though it was sad), and Kill Bill both volume one and two.

If I think of more, I'll be coming back.

anything by david lean - i don't know why, i fall in love with the visuals maybe, cos in some ways they're really pretty slow but
'bridge over the river kwai' and 'dr.zhivago' - even laurence of arabia' - love em.
delicatessen is kind of weird and bit violent but interesting
betty blue (also a bit weird....)
and another french one - i think because i shared an apt with a french girl for a while and she was always bringing back these odd european godard/fellini/bergman type movies which were great but am never going to remember the titles excepting
the hairdressers husband not sure why that one sticks.
down by law - by jim jarmusch made me laugh its got that actor from a beautiful life... roberto benigni and he's very funny in it - but it's a bit off-beat.
and i thought the film about the ira with the (well i'm not gonna give the plot away) what was it called ---- when they kidnap forrest whittaker oh yeah 'the crying game' was kinda interesting too.

The funniest movie of all time is Nothing But Trouble. Dan Akroyd, Chevy Chase, John Candy, and Demi Moore. It's an old movie but it's the funniest you'll ever see.
