Film/TV discussion/recommendations

Couldn't find a thread like this on the forum and thought it would be a good idea after posting in the transformers thread.

Some of my fave films (no order)

Pulp Fiction
Apocalypto
Kung Fu Hustle
The Mist (best horror film of the last decade imo)
Good Will Hunting
City of god
The Departed
Unforgiven
American Psycho
Leon
All Pixar films (except Cars, trash)
Requiem for a dream
Raging Bull
Sin City
Heat
The Town
The Big Lebowski
Kill Bill, both volumes
Trainspotting
This is England
K-PAX
Any martin scorcese gangster film
The Truman Show


Just a few off the top of my head.

You've got better taste than I would have thought Mc
Lot of good ones on that list.

Some of my faves:
The Descent and the sequel
The Conan movies
Tombstone
Jaws
Platoon
Saving Private Ryan
Snatch
Fight Club

If you enjoy westerns you should try out the new True Grit as well. Jeff Bridges does a great job.

Beat me to it, that's my favorite film :P

I'd throw The Thing in there, damn I love that film, the Kurt Russel remake though. I hear they have remade it again, with a female lead role, ugh......


Also throwing in Old Boy.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

Love Goodfellas (who doesn't?!!), but I personally think Casino is the better film. Joe Pesci is a legend.

Can't wait for this film:



It has the cop from Boardwalk Empire in (great tv show) and he's an outstanding actor.

Looking at your avatar, I'm throwing a very honorable mention out there to Game of Thrones as a TV Series discussion, such a damn good series.

Yea, GOT is amazing, can't wait for season 2.

Haven't seen The Thing, heard a lot about it though, will have to check it out.

Don't know how I forgot to mention Superbad. One of the best recent comedy films ever made imo

Also, did any one else think Inception was like....pretty shit?
