    All this superhero talk reminds me of when I got yelled at for cycling right through the middle of the set with a friend of mine in Oxford. :rofl:

    Stupid film crews. They don't leave us alone.

    Feel like going on a film binge, which I haven't done in ages. I think I'm going to watch a new film a day for a week. Any suggestions from people? Only rule is I can't have seen it before, doesn't matter if it's good, bad, mainstream, obscure... I'll try and get a review out of each one I see. It would be nice to get a bit of variation as well.

    That rules out absolutely every porn film ever made, then.

    Wait, didn't see the part about bad films being allowed. We should just recommend really awful films, put him through some torture ...

    If you want a more focused film binge, you can't go wrong with the work of John Huston. Obviously, watching every film he's ever done is going to be difficult, but the man made an unreal number of classic films (as well as some ridiculous duds like Escape to Victory). You could also do something with the lesser-known and under-appreciated Scorsese works; The King of Comedy, After Hours, The Age of Innocence, The Color of Money, etc.

    Watching Minority Report, wishing the touch technology used was real.

    I want to watch at least one bad film, just because I don't feel like I watch enough bad ones. :p: I'm definitely going to take one or two from your list - I'd never even heard of Big Fish!

    I'm starting tonight with Sin City. For some reason I never got around to seeing that...

    Yeah, I wouldn't mind going through someone's work at one point (month-long Hitchcock session :coma:). Fancy a bit of breadth at the minute though.

    Breadth. Hmm. Okay:

    John Huston's The Dead (best adaptation of a James Joyce work I've seen, though admittedly there haven't been too many)
    Kind Hearts and Coronets
    Greenberg
    Punch-Drunk Love
    Double Indemnity
    The Element of Crime
    Chungking Express
    L'Avventura (I hate this movie, but it's adored by film buffs. Very polarizing.)
    Weekend (again, quite polarizing, but I enjoyed it)
    Synecdoche, New York

    Sin City is a true work of art.

    EDIT: And one of the most disgusting reviews I've ever read - http://www.seattlepi.com/movies/218296_sincity01q.html

    .
    Wow, that's slightly surprising. I mean, Tim Burton as director with Ewan McGregor and Bonham Carter. Thought that would have been on your radar. It's a good film. Similar to Forrest Gump with a dash of fantasy.
