Not really.
It is what it is.
and that's an ok film.


Eastern promises is very good, certainly one of the best films of 2007 (i only saw it in o8 though)

I don't think anyone has mentioned "lolita" the original that is.

or

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

^^^^excellent film^^^^^^^


and I'm going to say it

Finding Neverland

I still haven't seen Fear and Loathing, I've heard a lot of good things about it. Lolita is definitely very good.

Watching elliot ride E.T home, then the spectacular music by John Williams come in, then E.T lifts the bike and the ride past the moon with the music still playing, give me chills all the time.

Watching those Jurrasic park gates open then ride past all of those long necked dinosaurs with John Williams spectacular music playing give me chills all the time

Another highly overrated recent film was The Prestige.

From 2008, check out Chop Shop if you haven't seen it.

^ it's sad, but unfortunelly for AceisNOTFresh. being moved by beautiful films is a FAG...

wtf lol. The Prestige did good, somehow end of the story has some "deus ex machina" in it.
1. (in ancient Greek and Roman drama) a god introduced into a play to resolve the entanglements of the plot.
2. any artificial or improbable device resolving the difficulties of a plot.


i dont think i watched apocalypse now, but i strongly recommend

The Killing Fields (www.imdb.com/title/tt0087553/)
great acting and great realistic depcition of fucking hell in Cambodia and friendship too. Great emotional ending with great song "Imagine" by John Lennon

The Thin Red Line (www.imdb.com/title/tt0120863/)
i didnt realize this movie come out around the same time as Saving Private Ryan and i guess ppl picked over killing and war scenes over never end question, is war worth? if it is who is it for?

A Clockwork Orange is amazing! Definitely my favoritre Kubrick film, Heath Ledger based the Joker on Alex Delarge.

Apocalypse Now might just be my favorite Coppolla, although Godfather I&II are genius. Its definitely worth seeing, great film, maybe one of the best. I'd also check out Aguirre: Wrath of God, not as well known but some people think its better than Apocalypse Now. Definitely a lot creepier and disorienting I think..

apocalypse now and aguirre share some thematic elements and coppola has named it as one of the key influences while he was filming apocalypse now, but given that another is a big budget war movie that mainly delves into the absurdness and madness of warfare while the other is a small bugdet art house film that explores how wicked individual people can be (or become), i probably wouldn't even place them in the same sentence.

herzog's early films wouldn't be half as good without klaus kinski.

pps. on the earlier posts: thin red line is highly inferior to saving private ryan in my books. malick or no malick, shit was boring and self-indulgent.

^ it's unfortune u find Thin Red Line boring... that movie absolutely has its depth of its own on WAR, just like Saving Private Ryan, but Ryan showed more gruesome part of the war. For example, the Normandy Scene where a soldier holding his blown off arm with his other arm in confusion.


Anyone watched "This Is England?" it's a great film about 13? year old troubled English boy without his Dad who died in a war growing up as he desperately looking for a group of friends who will accept him and the father figure in England.

deals with many social issues in England, Im very pleased with this film and i think it's pretty underrated.

I liked This is England a lot, its an important film because what went on then in the 80s is going on now. The parallels between the Falklands and the Iraq War are nicely done, not too in your face but you get the message.

About Apocalypse Now, Brando kind of fucked up, I wonder what it would have looked like if he had come in at the right weight and such...

Anyone see Control? Its by this photographer Anton Corbijn, about the lead singer from Joy Division. Check it out, at least for the photography.

I disagree about The Shawshank, I think it's a brilliant film. My favourite actually.

The machinist is better than Fight Club in all seriousness. Fight Club is one to watch with a group of friends or what ever.

Disagree about Se7en too, I really dont think it was that predictable. Good film IMO.

I do agree about America history X though, it's the same with This is England. Everyone I know rapes it to fuck. Both pretty lame films with not much going for them other than them both portraying racism. You know, people love films like this though which are a bit edgy and 'shocking'. Perticularly middle class white people or just gay people who can't see past there own nose. I thought the story line was a pile of wank too and the ending was even worse.

Glory was great, i watched it in history class. i believe all the soldiers are African Americans right? i felt really bad at the end...

Death Sentence is not underrated. It was all right, but it sucks with ridiculous gun fights and shit... come on. I like Kevin Bacon as an actor though

The Machinist was quite interesting. they portrayed the result of "Guilt." Christian Bale is a real deal and losing that much weight, although i hate the way he speaks... always mono-tone
