Ditto on "Pulp Fiction". I also liked "Platoon". And add "Se7en" to my list.

Some others have mentioned "The Matrix" (here and in other similar threads). I thought the special effects were excellent, I just never bought the story.

yea, if you thought about it, then it is. a brilliant movie yet sometimes disturbing. i would recomend it to anyone but you have to see it in spanish to understand exactly the meaning of the words. it is very hard to translate slangs of spanish to english.

I defiantly have to say ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vagas’, the book is better though (there I go with the HST stuff)

Imho, ‘go’ was too teeny bopper-ish for me.

‘Requim for a Dream’ was disgusting, disturbing, horrifying, repulsive, a great film!

‘The usual suspects’ was good the first time round but it started to suck majorly on reputed viewings. Same goes for ‘run lola run’ a nice idea but after you’ve seen the story six times in two viewings it gets a little tedious.

I’m really enjoying ‘Series 7: The Contenders’ I get the same feelings I got from ‘requim for a dream’ I would recommend this film to everyone the acting is superb

The Alien Saga has held its own over time, and will continue to do so

American beauty rocked, but it will get boring if I see it too many times

You can never watch ‘U2: Rattle and hum’ too many times, a classic road film.

American Psycho was good, misunderstood, but good. The book was better though (isn’t that a given?)

Haven’t seen any of the lord of the rings stuff yet, I’m not that big on fantasy, though I imagine it will be enjoyable when I finally get the chance to see it.

‘Star Wars’ was way too mainstream and childish for my enjoyment; I like the increased intellect and sensible storylines portrayed in the ‘Star Trek’ movies and episode more.

Good Will Hunting was good the first time round,

'Fight club' was good for the first few viewings, got a little taxing to sit through it again and again though.

‘A clockwork orange’ is another film I could watch all day and enjoy (go read the book though)

‘Full metal jacket’ would be another one, I can never get enough of Kubrick.

If I think of any more I’ll let you know.

you made me remember a few:

a clockwork orange and 2001 are definitely on my list,

fight club too if i didnt already put it,
pulp fiction
american hixtory x
clerks
the last of the mohicans
blade runner
fargo
la confidential
the royal tenenbaums
reservoir dogs
chasing amy

i feel i have to defend the matrix (SPOILERS, for those who have yet to see the movie :P). i watched it today, and i know there is some cheesy dialogue, and some cheesy acting, but it was the first movie i ever saw in theaters that had my jaw on the floor for the whole thing. i was hysterical when, in the subway fight with agent smith, neo throws a punch and smith catches it, and then neo pokes his neck. and towards the end when neo gets up from being dead and kicks the guy, keeps his leg in the air, gets shot at, stops the bullets, then kills smith and flexes the hallway around him? how cool was that? i think i might have to push back my boot camp ship date so i can see the sequel in theaters

Dune was good, but I really have to watch it again.
and Treasure of sierra madre, petrified forest, rear window, psycho, rope, lifeboat, key largo, and fear and loathing, although yes, the book was much better.

My favorite 3 movies... I think I can do this.

The Game
Virgin Suicides
Shrek

Okay, I know the last one was a bit immature, but how can anyone not like Shrek? (I'm spelling it wrong, I think) It's still funny, and my sister's watched it around 150 times if not more.

Lots of love,
Mea
