    City of Angles
    A Serious Man

    there are plenty more good films.

    Seen beautiful mind, yeah it's good. Getting A serious man, not sure about city of angels, the revies arn't that good

    (Original post by Cesare Borgia)

    Subtitled but a cracking film.
    Don't like foreign films :o:

    (Original post by paddyman4)
    Blood Diamond might be the right type of film.

    Just from your list, you seem to like Christian Bale and Ed Norton a bit. Try American Psycho, Harsh Times and 25th Hour.
    Seen blood Diamond, seen American Psycho, Seen Harsh times all awesome films, havn't seen 25th hour, I'll get that, thanks!

    (Original post by OceanInTheSky)

    Thank You For Smoking, it's brilliantly sadistic. Book's good too
    Seen it, one of my favourite films actually, has an awesome "cool, sleek" feel to it!

    The Lives of Others

    The Edukators and City of God , especially The Edukators - one of the best films I've ever seen.

    I watched Taken recently, and thought it was really good.

    my mistake. I actually meant City of God.

    I've never seen the other film.

    Goodbye Lenin and Brazil

    Wind That Shakes the Barley, This Is England and La Haine

    2001 a space odyssey

    (Original post by ParadigmShift)
    Crank 1 and 2
    Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels
    The Bank Job
    Have them all and seen them all apart from lock stock, is it really that good?

    (Original post by LOV3R)
    This is a really warm and romantic film 'Excess Baggage'. Great film with great music.... One of my favs...
    Didn't I say no romance films :rolleyes:

    (Original post by Jelkin)
    What's that one with Kate Winslet and Kevin Spacey about the guy who has spent his life campaigning against the death penalty and is on death row?

    Oh yeah, The Life of David Gale. I thought that was pretty good, although it's been about six years since I saw it so I might be mistaken.
    Thanks, I'll check it out

    (Original post by Louise_x)
    Slumdog Millionaire

    I love these three. Amazing.
    Seen 21, was pretty good, not amazing but decent. Seen slumdog Millionaie, again pretty good but felt a lil bit boring at times. Havn't seen watchmen, I'll get that..

    (Original post by Nimbus)
    Don't say a word
    Well, I thought the storyline was interesting anyways!xD
    Pretty bad reviews though :o:

    (Original post by Maturity)
    The Matrix - can't beat it.
    Tried watching it on two occasion but I just get bored right from the start.. I'll try again someday though

    (Original post by Louise_x)
    Oh, and Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind. That one is pretty amazing too...
    Seen it, pretty good but a little bit too far-fetched and slightly boring at times..

    (Original post by neomilan)
    not my favourite nor is it considered a good film, just one that i thought of just now

    green street hooligans

    if you like violance and football
    good story too
    dont like football :p:

    (Original post by neomilan)
    hotel rwanda
    Seen it, pretty good..

    (Original post by dylan2592)
    Good Will Hunting
    Seen it, very good!

    (Original post by Mr. Bungle)
    1. Dead Man's Shoes

    2. There Will Be Blood

    3. Let The Right One In
    Got them all, havn't seen dead man's shoes yet though. There will be blood I found awesome, one of my favo films, Let the right one in is pretty good, didn't watch all of it though..

    Dunno if its been mentioned or not, dont really want to have to scroll through the 5 pages to find out but here's a few suggestions:

    Vanilla Sky
    Twelve Monkeys
    Devil's Advocate (GREAT film)
    Wall Street (You can watch it just in time for its upcoming prequel this year )
    Constantine (another great reeves film)
    Seven Pounds (I've never cried to a film, apart from this has a slow start but it all builds up to the climactic finish which just hits you like a wave)
    Pursuit of Happiness (Not quite as powerful as seven pounds, but still a pretty damn emotional film)
    Lucky Number Slevin

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head, as you can see quite a few of my faves focus on dystopian futures, I love those type of films. Too bad I've seen almost all of them, we need more!!

    (Original post by kevin_123)
    Have them all and seen them all apart from lock stock, is it really that good?

    (Original post by CryogenicTribe)
    you've seen some **** films as well
    Really? Which ones would you say were ****? Very interested in your reply!!

    (Original post by Ooops)
    The Usual Suspects
    28 Days Later
    Dead Mans Shoes
    The Godfather 1 and 2 the thirds pretty poor
    If your prepared to read subtitles or fluent in German then Downfall and The Wave are pretty good
    Seen 28 days later and memento, pretty good, seen parts of the usual suspects, need to get round to watching all of it, I have dead mans shoes, need to get round to watching that as well, seen the godfather, goudn it boring :p:

    Not sure if it was mentioned cause i didn't scroll through all the pages, but Funny Games is like my favourite film. It's great

    (Original post by kevin_123)
    Sorry too many, choose ONE that is really good instead :p:
    Can't choose just one. Check them out in this order: The Believer, This Is England, A Midnight Clear, Any Given Sunday.

    Nice post btw.

    (Original post by *Mazz_Peace*)
    If you've seen Shaun of the Dead then you will probably like Hot Fuzz. Its by the same director and has the same main characters. I saw it recently and really enjoyed it, very funny!
    Seen them both and I disagree, Shaun of the dead was clever, witty and interesting where as Hot Fuzz felt stupid and immature..
