Just watched Pulp Fiction again today for what has to be the 40th time. One of, if not the, most quotable movies of all time. Love it.

I just just ordered/rented 12 Angry Men.
Speaking of 12, you should get 12 Monkeys out on DVD. Great movie.

Anyone seen Hero with Jet Li in? That film is amazing.


Yeah, really good film.

I heard the only reason it came out in Europe and America is due to Quentin Tarrantino having his name involved in it

Jesus Christ. That film is GOLD.

Some hillarious moments indeed. A brilliant directorial debut from Martin McDonagh.

One of my film tutors on my degree used to work with John Woo and Jackie Chan, he was a cameraman for those old school Hong Kong action films. He was hilarious

And +1 for In Bruges, one of the funniest films I've seen in a long time, his fascination with midgets was amazing Superb acting all round.

I finally got my Office Space DVD today. Such a great movie.

Has anyone seen Irreversible? It looks like it has a lot of potential but I'm not sure how bad the rape scene is. I've seen Cannibal Holocaust, Men Behind The Sun, I Spit On Your Grave and others, so how does it compare to those?

Attention "The Exorcist" fans!

You guys should try watching the movie after seeing this great analysis video. It explains how the girl was not possessed; she was just a molested girl displaying post-molestation behavior seen through the eyes of everyone else.

Has anyone here been to an actual film school (as in, studied film and nothing else for a year or so)? I've been toying with the opportunity, I'll probably be going to some sort of university after the summer.

Oh yeah, I saw Blue Velvet again last night. Brilliant film. Absolutely brilliant.

I'm a David Lynch fanboy, so I must agree with this assessment.

I've thought about it, but I doubt I'd really direct anything, so it would be a useless degree. I just love film.

A degree isn't necessary. Film is an industry all about who you know, but film school is a great place to meet people in the industry.

I doubt it can be worse than the ones from Cannibal Holocaust or I Spit on Your Grave.

And this.

Also, finally saw The Boondock Saints 2 a couple weeks ago. I can't tell if I liked it or not. I guess it was good but through the entire movie I kept comparing it to the first one.

I've just finished watching "In The Loop" for the umpteenth time and I'm yet to get tired of it.

For anybody that doesn't know it's the work of Armando Ianucci and contains most the actors from The Thick of It playing basically the same characters they do in the aforementioned TV series.

During my degree there were many opportunities to mingle with film folk, the Uni is lucky to be closely involved with the Cornish Film Festival, I met a film distributor guy based in London who was offering internships but at the time I had to much work to do.

A degree can get you somewhere, its just how you use it e.i I now have the qualification to go into masters programs that offer much more opportunities (the TV production course at my Uni has a 100% employment record), but what my degree has done for me is actually shown me what films I truly like, learnt how to write a script and how to use creative camera and editing work so I can now do my own thing. I'm planning a few projects atm, it'll take a few years but I'll get there

Yep. It's a fantastically-made film; definitely worth watching.

The rape scene ... I wouldn't watch it with any female friends or relatives, just because of how awkward it would feel; the scene is pretty long. It's very dry too - no editing, one shot, no music, some brilliant work by both actor and actress (and director of course).

It's French indie

Anyone seen this movie? I've just rewatched this old classic, which will be my second time. The last time I watched this movie was in very short glimpses when I was young but I didn't watch it fully.
This time, it meant sometime to me that I can't explain, especially the second story of events. If you ever get the chance to watch it, please do.

Amazing movie. It's rated Top 100 movies of all time by TIME magazine.

Quote by Wikipedia
The movie comprises two different stories, told one after the other, each about a romance involving a policeman. Aside for a brief moment when the first story ends and the second begins, the two stories do not interconnect. However, the three main characters from the second story each momentarily appears during the first.


First Story
The first story concerns Taiwan-born cop He Qiwu, also known as Cop 223 (played by Kaneshiro). Qiwu's girlfriend May broke up with him on April 1st (April Fool's Day). His birthday is May 1 and he chooses to wait for May for a month before moving on. Every day he buys a tin of pineapple with an expiration date of May 1. By the end of this time, he feels that he will either be rejoined with his love or that it will have expired forever.


Second Story
In the second story, the unnamed Cop 663 (played by Tony Leung) is similarly dealing with a breakup, this time from a flight attendant (Valerie Chow). He meets Faye, the new girl at the snack bar (played by Faye Wong). She falls for him in secret, and frequently breaks into his apartment during the day to redecorate and "improve" his living situation. Gradually, her ploys help Cop 663 to cheer up, and he eventually realises that Faye likes him and arranges a date at the restaurant 'California'.

It's not a Chick-Flick for sure but you have to watch it to fully appreciate it. It's just one of these movies which, after having watched, really understand the complexities of fate?...no, not fate...perhaps life's great gift of convenience? It's a movie which really illustrates a life of broken-hearted person, living and talking to himself while totally sane.

It's instores in all good retail stores such as HMV etc. It was an international hit but being from Asia, I'm not sure if it's had all it deserves. The movie itself, was actually made in 1996 so it's quite old but it's definitely available on DVD. This movie, along with Infernal Affairs (of which the Departed was a remake of Infernal Affairs) is probably the best known movie in Asia.

I hope you find the time to watch it.

I just watched '23', worst film I've ever seen, I'm going to have to quit smoking so I can get that 1 hour 30 of my life back. The plot seems like it's been written by an 11 year old that thinks they're clever and creative, and the only reason the plot twists are unpredictable is because they don't follow any conventional sense of logic. Of COURSE I'm going to be suprised to find out he's actually the killer if you don't mention the fact that he doesn't remember a huge part of his life until the end of the ****ing film, you stupid twats. This isn't even taking into account all the '23' nonsense. I actually feel cheated out of money and time, even though I just downloaded it.

Nah, it's the one about Jim Carey putting on stupid faces even though he's supposed to be acting a serious part, and getting obsessed with the number '23' because it's evil and it kills people.

I saw Avatar yesterday, what a terrible film it was. I found the concept very good and the special effects were fantastic, but I could literally guess what was going to happen at the beginning of the film, plus it was three hours long. I tend to see films as I see women, special effects are the beauty and the story is the intelligence, but if there isn't a balance between the two it does not excite me. This film is in the Michael Bay category of forget the story line, look at these explosions!

Anyway, that's enough of that rant. I got the Alfred Hitchcock collection on dvd for christmas, which one of his films should I watch?

I didn't have high hopes for it, but I will watch it and see for myself.

Indeed it is. Awesome film, one of the best from 2009, along with Star Trek and The Hurt Locker.

There are hugely mixed opinions on Avatar. I'm hoping to see it soon simply for that reason. The picture wouldn't interest me that much if it weren't so debatable.

I have a ten pound giftcard from HMV, what film/films should I get? I don't like sci-fi, or movies with too many special effects.
