    The only superhero film i'm interested in this year is X-Men.
    I still have a wary fascination with Green Lantern. As I've said before, it has to reach the awesome standard set by the animated film Green Lantern: First Flight. Which I would recommend to everyone.

    :eek: That's shocking.



    Any particular movies/directors/actors you'd recommend?
    A good place to start is Seven Samurai, then pretty much all of Kurosawa's films; Ikiru, Ran (based on King Lear), Throne of Blood (based on Macbeth), Rashomon, Hidden Fortress, Dersu Uzala, Yojimbo...

    Some of my other personal favourites (from other directors) are; Tokyo Story (Ozu), The Human Condition I, II & III (Kobayashi - Usual Suspects?), Ugetsu (Mizoguchi).

    Ugestu is Mizoguchi's most famous work, but I prefer Sansho the Bailiff, mainly due to this ghostly scene...(spoiler).



    It's quite unlike anything you will ever see.

    Thanks, duly noted. I didn't watch the video because you've said it has spoilers, and I don't like spoilers.

    A few years ago (before Batman Begins and the seriousness that followed) they were planning to make a Green Lantern film with Jack Black as a far more comedic take compared to the relatively straight route this Ryan Reynolds version seems to be taking. Which one would you have preferred to see?

    I would have hated for it to be Jack Black, and really I don't feel that Green Lantern is appropriate for a comedy. In general, I prefer the more serious superhero films. Green Hornet is an exception; I think that could have been done the way it was or straight.

    Go onto the IMDB page for a film you love, are passionate about or which is undeniably a masterpiece. Go to user reviews. Filter by 'Hated it'.

    Guaranteed instant rage factor.

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

    A (pretty rubbish) video I made about Elizabeth Taylor three years ago now has 656,029 views on YouTube, all it is is pictures and a song!
