Pulp Fiction

If they have it I'll definently get it. That is, if they have. Everywhere I go, they never have Pulp motherfuckin' Fiction.

Same thing with Taxi Driver.

Yeah, he directed Videodrome and A History of Violence.

Buy the Carl Sagan Cosmos box set, instead of movies you've probably already seen many times. You'll thank me later.

I think taxi driver is highly overrated.
just my opinion

okay.

first off, get michael mann movies if you don't already have them, specifically, heat and collateral (skip the miami vice remake). also get american beauty, because that movie is a cinematic masterpiece, also magnolia if you like paul thomas anderson (he directed twbb), if you're a kubrick fan, you might want to check out some of gus van sant's more indie/experimental flicks, since i've always said van sant is the closest thing we'll ever have to a modern day kubrick. also, on the waterfront, just cause that movie's fucking great, and i just watched it again, and the deer hunter, and track down taxi driver, because deniro's performance in that is worth it every time.

oh well...

Dirty(MakiK) Harry and Lethal Weapon, best police movies ever.

If you like comedies, Get "The Dinner Game." Most hilarious movie ever. (Though it only has subtitles in english, it's worth it)

Heat is on my movies to get list.
And you know he's coming out with a new movie this year? It looks badass.

I know Kevin Spacey is supposed to be a badass acting in the movie.
also magnolia if you like paul thomas anderson (he directed twbb), if you're a kubrick fan, you might want to check out some of gus van sant's more indie/experimental flicks, since i've always said van sant is the closest thing we'll ever have to a modern day kubrick.

Alright.
also, on the waterfront, just cause that movie's fucking great, and i just watched it again,

Brando's a badass.

and the deer hunter, and track down taxi driver, because deniro's performance in that is worth it every time.

I know, but I can never find a store that has Taxi Driver.

Quote by sghunter182
so much winnn!!!!!!


Patrick Bateman: Do you like Huey Lewis and the news?
Paul Allen: They're OK.
Patrick Bateman: Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercial and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humour.
Paul Allen: Hey Halberstram.
Patrick Bateman: Yes, Allen?
Paul Allen: Why are their copies of the style section all over the place, d-do you have a dog? A little chow or something?
Patrick Bateman: No, Allen.
Paul Allen: Is that a rain coat?
Patrick Bateman: Yes it is! In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself.
[raises axe above head]
Patrick Bateman: Hey Paul!
[he bashes Allen in the head with the axe, and blood splatters over him]
Patrick Bateman: TRY GETTING A RESERVATION AT DORSIA NOW YOU ****ING STUPID BASTARD! YOU, ****ING BASTARD!

...how can a movie scene be more awesome than this one?...

yes, i'm extremely excited for public enemies, i love bale and depp and 1930s gangsters, so it should be quite the quite the film, not to mention mann is one of the best action movie directors ever. kevin spacey is phenomenal in american beauty, and brando has always been a badass.

I know it seems a bit stupid, but Lars and The Real Girl is an absolute masterpiece. It's emotional, funny, and really thought provoking. Get it, trust me - you wont regret it.

it's an excellent movie no doubt, and ryan gosling is spot on, but i don't know if that's really the ts's type of movie based on the stuff he listed up there.

Get some Wes Anderson movies. The Darjeeling Limited is my favorite, but most people think probably like Rushmore better. Don't get The Royal Tenenbaums, it sucks and is overrated.

Or get Children of Men if you choose to shun the great Mr. Anderson.

I always recommend Juno and The Matrix, regardless of a person's tastes.

Braveheart and Gladiator are pretty much the standard historical epics, if you like epic tales of heroism and drama. Citizen Kane, though probably inflated by critics and the AFI, is great no matter what your tastes.

Since you like Hitchcock, I think you'll go for Joel Schumaker's Phone Booth. According to Wikipedia, Hitchcock himself liked the film's premise when he heard it in the 60's, but didn't make the movie because he couldn't think of a logical reason for a movie to be confined to a phone booth. The addition of a sniper to the plot set the idea off again in the late 90's.
No animals were harmed in order to bring you the above post. However, several photons were greatly inconvenienced.

i used to be like you, i really did. the royal tenenbaums still doesn't touch the genius of rushmore as far as i'm concerned, but i recommend you watch it again, it seems to grow on you.

I never really saw what was so great about There will be blood. It was long and boring and in the end pointless. Since you like Scorsese you should get Casino.
Fight Club is another excellent film and if you dont mind foreign films get City of God, probably one of the best films ever made.
