5 movies list
« on: December 25, 2010, 12:14:25 am »
This is a thread for recommending movies:-


1) "The Wages of Fear" by Clouzot. The ultimate suspense film.

2) "Le Corbeau" by Clouzot. Excellent film about paranoia.

3) "Jean de Florette" by Claude Berri.

4) "Manon des Sources" by Claude Berri, sequel to Jean de Florette.

5) "Dune" by David Lynch.

Tyler - I am a bit shocked you didn't include "Fight Club".

What gives?

Might have to change your name to Leto or something!

  Well, I did once change my username on another website to "Muad'Dib" for a lark, given its  literal meaning and the reference to the famous main character in "Dune".  And I didn't include Fight Club as there is an annoying known tendency on those "best 100  movies of all time"  generic lists/polls to have most of the top ranks filled with films that only appeared a decade or two ago. Besides, "The Wages of Fear" is a similiar sort of film to Fight Club in a way .

  The only decent film in that whole series was Empire Strikes Back, and that was only because George Lucas wasn't paying as much attention to that film.

I have no list as I am not a great movie buff but "The Ugly Truth" was fun.
Across the Universe was a fun blast from the past.

Since you seem to like french films, i'd suggest 'Caché' by Michael Haneke.

Not entirely, as I have a loathing of some French filmmakers like Godard. But I'll see if I can watch it once I eventually get dvd rentals going again. Thanks.

I just saw Avatar on BluRay and it is too damn awesome eye candy.
It just has to be high resolution BluRay for this movie, totally immersed.

I saw about 5 minutes of that and turned it off. I can't stomach senseless violence. However I know others who thought highly of it.

Yeah but the story and acting is so horrible I couldn't really watch it, even though the effects are amazing...it just pisses me off even more they wasted all these nice effects on such a movie! If they work so much on the effects can't they at least try and make an interesting and engaging story...WTF!

I saw Avatar on the most massive IMAX in my area. Yeah it was a terribly artless movie with a naive premise, but i'm sure that premise hit home in a positive way to some equally naive people. Some of the scenes did transcended just effects and transported you to somewhere else.

There is grownups running around half naked and painted blue thinking they are avatar, check on youtube its ridiculous. I can imagine how embarrassed their kids and family are LOL...

I saw about 5 minutes of that and turned it off. I can't stomach senseless violence. However I know others who thought highly of it.

I haven't watched that movie but maybe if you waited more then 5 minutes you may have found out the point of why they were showing the violence?

... fresh tiger shrimp beautiful yellow and blue colors, maybe I'll have mine raw and fry theirs with butter and garlic, although thats yummi too  :D should go well with a few bottles of polish vodka!  -v  -d  -v

Well I did and up having some of the shrimps raw and they were incredible, dam now I am addicted to an expensive raw meat aaaaahh
However the raw shrimp didn't make me immune to the too much voka part so still  -v

exactly, yeah, it might have been 'cliche' or whatever, but there's no getting around the GREAT parabole. it was just awesome to see such a huge movie attacking industry and western culture

no country for old men... i really liked this, but then i didn't understand the very end  -\

yeah, it's kinda open to your interpretation which is... cool... i'd rather it be more direct though
