Recommend a GOOD film - no snakes, planes or spandex superheroes.

    Yikes, my above post was #666! Am I going to have a bad day yet or what?

    Outaservice (getting scared now)

  • Mysterious

    Equilibrium - It didn't do so well at the box office but I know a lot of people who like it. There are also some scary parallels to JW life in the way a futuristic society is portrayed. Well worth the watch in my opinion.

    One of my favorites is "Primer".

    It was shot for less than $7000 and is definitely a thinking persons movie. There is usually one copy on the shelf at Blockbuster.

    It's about two guys that invent a time machine in their garage and the unknown implications with using it.....

    You'll have to watch it at least 3 times to get what is happening, and then look up some forums online to piece it together.

    They made that here in Dallas. Great film. I think it was here in Dallas...??? Maybe I am wrong!

    I enjoyed Red Eye.

    I enjoyed Red Eye.

    This has a PLANE in it, and therefore does not constitute a GOOD film!

    "Blade Runner" - sci/fi/detective thing with a twist on what it is to be human

    "An American Werewolf in London" - horror/black comedy, first to cross the genres

    "The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and her Lover" - drama

    "Caddyshack" - comedy classic

    I'm with KatieKitten on "A Beautiful Mind". This was one of the best movies I have ever watched. It is very long but facinating. The ending is really an eye opener.
