    OUATITW is pretty much definitely the best western ever.

    Also, watched Dial M for Murder. Predictably great. Rooting for the bad guy is always a strange experience, but for some reason I really really wanted that guy to successfully murder his wife.

    You mean the thread? I'm currently actively avoiding updating it. Maintaining that list is tiring.

    I would pay to watch that film. Bigelow and Boal are two people that have earned my trust not to get over-patriotic.

    You haven't watched many Westerns, eh? It's my lucky day :awesome:

    You need to watch:

    The Dollars Trilogy-
    -A Fistful Of Dollars
    -For a Few Dollars More
    -The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

    A Fistful Of Dynamite

    Once Upon A Time In The West (this is probably the best Western ever)

    High Plains Drifter

    The Outlaw Josey Wales

    3:10 To Yuma

    Unforgiven

    The Wild Bunch

    I'll let you know if I think of any more
    Much appreciated, thanks! I can't rep you any more at the moment, unfortunately.

    Sounds promising.
    I'm really looking forward to his Abe Lincoln biopic, if only because Daniel Day-Lewis is in it. It's due out next year.

    Oh, also, I was going through a couple of trailers from the Cannes selection this year. I'm quite looking forward to Melancholia, which looks like it could be anything between intriguing and depressingly pretentious.

    Oh, so you're one of those 'folk' (think Serenity is a better film that Empire Strikes Back) :dry:

    Meh, your opinion. The Prestige is. Well, aren't most films directed by Nolan? Have you seen the Illusionist? That poor (inferior) film which always gets lapped with The Prestige even though they have little in common really.
    Excuuuuse me.
    ESB is a better film but I find Serenity more entertaining. As you say, my opinion.
    I don't enjoy the idea you're looking down on me for thinking that though...pfft.

    Edit: here's mine

    The most attractive thing about living in America is easily Netflix. When the hell are they going to release it over here?
    Wasn't it said (reports or official) that it would be by the end of 2010? That doesn't seem to have worked out. But there has been some recent news on it, came across this a few weeks ago: http://www.engadget.com/2011/03/31/n...r-globa-launc/

    I'm not too keen on what we have at the moment: Lovefilm. Get a slight tinge of jealousy when I see someone using Netflix on something where the activity is broadcasted - like a games console.

    "The Eagles are a dangerous 'machine'. I have used them sparingly, and that is the absolute limit of their credibility or usefulness." (J. R. R. Tolkien, Letter to F. Ackerman, June 1958)



    Basically, because if that happened, there would be no plot. :p:
    also Eagles stand out like sore thumbs, being magical creatures. Hobbits dont get an eye batted to them.

    Sauron would wing his Nazgul (and probably himself) over to fry them in a crisp. Remember he watches over his land like a hawk.

    It's not that. It's not the films themselves. I love Serenity, like I love Firefly. It's just the fanbase and how the polling progressed in the io9 competition. I mean, even though everyone was voting for the 'film they liked', it didn't seem like a fair victory. Convinced one fan base was cheating for votes.

    That reminds me. We should have our own Film Forum sci-fi film competition in future complete with polling and a flurry of replies angrily screaming why one science fiction film was omitted from the poll. :awesome:

    I think there were plans to try and bring it over as early as 05, but they got aborted.

    The amount of content they have is just insane though, and unlimited usage for $8 a month on computers, TVs and phones... it's hard to imagine anyone wouldn't want it.

    I'm not sure there's much that can be changed about that. Serenity/Firefly has a strong fanbase. Sure it's a bit rubbish they can't be objective but how can it be monitored?
