Finally, a thread about this. Can't remember the last movie I saw but there's an upcoming one called moneyball. You might want to check it out.

Bloodbath at the House of Death - very funny with Kenny Everett and Vincent Price, sort of in the English version of the Airplane/Police Squad style from the early 80's.

A New Hope on bluray aka "How that hack Lucas can screw things up even more". Seriously someone needs to buy the rights off him and remove the crap he's added, remake the prequels so they actually fit with the series, and make Timothy Zahn's trilogy as eps 7-9.

Danielle picked up a 6 film Bond box set on bluray from hmv today for the bargain price of £22 saving about £90! So we'll probably watch Dr No tonight.

Please remove that youtube video from your signature, it's incredibly annoying and ridiculously large for a signature.

Just had a look on IMDb. It's got my doppelganger, Brad Pitt, in it! I know i'll get slammed for this, but i've liked every film he's been in and i do actually rate him quite highly! *Dons flame proof suit

I was watching the new BR Star Wars releases last week. There are scenes in A New Hope for instance, that are gritty and untouched, the way you'd expect an old print to look that then transition to a cleaned up, CGI enhanced frame and it's completely jarring! I'd like a BR release of the Theatrical versions myself.

At least the DTS audio is a good addition.

Removed it for you....
I iz in ur signaturez removin all ur utubez......


As for the movies, I would recommend "La Haine", "Zatoichi" and "The Lives Of Others" if you like a bit of subtitley goodness....

If not, go for some classics like "The Warriors" any of the Dirty Harry movies or the original "Assault on Precinct 13"....

Yeah you've seen em before but hey....


Looking forward to seeing "Troll Hunter" sometime, even though theres a pretty high chance of it being crap..

The lives of others looks good. Going to check it out..

I should probably add that as a massive movie fan i've probably seen most of what there is to see. At least among the better films anyway, although apart from some Guillermo Del Toro films i don't often do foreign language. City of God was awesome though, as was Das Boot.

I've done the IMDb top 250 as it stands now, which is where i've always gone for inspiration before:

I think the industry is lacking in truly visionary directors these days. Once Scorsese hangs up his hat we'll have none of the old greats left!
