^ i dont take commands from no one!

The Hunted starring Tommy Lee Jones and Benecio del Toro. cool knife fight actons and not many ppl seen it.

so then you DO take commands from EVERYONE? double negatives save the day again!!!

and yea the hunted was pretty decent, i may concede that its slightly underrated if only because its never mentioned in any context, IF you go see rise of the footsoldier....NAOOO!!!

"Lock Stock and two smoking barrels" was good and kept me interested when i was watching it.

American Gangster was good, but i got bored at some point and i didnt like how they're trying to portray protaganist so much bigger than life character. (im very aware that he makes million $ a day on the street) Maybe i couldnt really relate to him and lost the connection there. "Scarface" on the other hand did good job by bringin up the lowest scumbag into a hungry fierce beast. Love the whole Greek tragedy theme

i just downloaded the chronically edited version of "Memento," (which was released as an limited edition DVD, my version is fan edited) i was quite surprised by the fact how many ppl were confused after the film. I knew what the fuck was up when i first watching it... i love the scene where John chases the other guy then just to find out that he's the one who's actually being chased and aimed gun point at him. LOL

"Carlito's Way" was good too and guess what Al Pacino is in it as a Puerto Rican gangsta who just relased from the jail. Sean Penn as a Coke addicted Jewish lawyer friend was excellent. Carlito tried so hard to chase his American dream... and planned to walk away it from all of the dirty works once it for all.

Al Pacino's acting on difference between this movie and "Scarface" turned out to be AGE ! Tony Montona was a young ambitious guy willing to do anything to get what he wants compare to Carlito, who's tired of his criminal way of living after going through jail then come out as an old man and wants no more. I could see Tony becoming Carlito in his later years. Carlito reminiscencing himself when he was young and fearless when he's on his way to deal with his young cousin in the beginning and young thug at his club.

*i like the guy in the wheel chair in "Carlito's way," he showed such a desperation in front of Carlito and begged him for help then later on Carlito himself was put into desperation situation later on in the future. i find this scene very good contrast n great foreshadow of Carlito's future.

i guess this movie has Greek tragedy elements in it too.

lock stock & 2 smoking barrels is one of my favorite movies of all times, arguably guy ritchies best work (Havent seen rock & rolla yet)

but im going to have to disagree with the general consensus on american gangster and say i was extremely dissapointed with that film, there was not a single thing in it that hasnt been done a million times b4 ad nauseam

carlitos way is worth a watch, but is by no means a must see imo

I wish I would have seen that you put Children of Men on your list of top 10 so I could have stopped reading sooner.

I'm confused by what your saying.

Children of Men is good. Its not underrated and its not overrated.
Its a solid film with solid acting.
its just not amazing.
its worth a watch.
its worth buying the dvd or blu ray etc.

I disagree.

I disagree.

i like Children of Men... shit was fresh and i like the idea of entire population not being able to reproduce. It was an epic film, but i'll watch it again and it's buying DVD worthy
