I think everyone in their lifetime should most definetly watch "The Way We Were" - I still didn't get over it ! It's a classic romantic drama really not a romantic comedy although I do love many of those...except the ones with SJP in them...makes Fast and the Furious 6 look like gold! I guess Family Guy was right bout her face...:lolwut:

Relatively unknown but a sick movie. Lots of great scenes. One of the rare occasions where Cage actually comes across as a good actor

The Thomas Crown Affair makes your top 5?! I saw it recently, it was average at best.

-Raid: Redemption 2011, directed by Gareth Evans, lead role: Iko Uwais. It's the best action/martial arts film I've seen and I'm a kung fu-classic nerd.

-Wuthering Heights, directed by Andrea Arnold, lead role: Solomon Graves/James Howson. It's a modern remake of the Emily Bronte classic, and Heathcliffe is a black boy instead.

-City of God, it's a Brazilian film about life in favelas/slums of Rio. Based on true story, just all too good :ahee:

hmmmm

-Once Were Warriors. It's about life for a lower class family of the natives of New Zealand, slumming it pretty much and like the father is abusive, the oldest son is in a gang, the middle son is taken to welfare and finds himself at a boys school, the oldest daughter is...can't say...if you do watch it Critics rated it 4/4. Same for the others except Wuthering Heights (3/4) now that I think about it :awesome:

-Rabbit Proof Fence: About Abby/Aboriginal girls from AU, true story, taken in early 20th century from their land and homes and forced to live in missionary boarding school. The oldest daughter of a trio of girls leads the way on foot back to their reservation. It took them months to walk over 1000 miles. :coma: Kenneth Branagh plays the guy who started the whole imperialism thing. Real name of real man is Mr. Neville. Google it it pops right up. Auber Octavius Neville. They called him Mr. Devil :mmm:


-Babel 2005: With Brad Pitt. Greatly produced film, 4/4. It's about how all these stories of people from Morocco, LA, Mexico and Japan alll come together perfectly allll surrounding the bullet of a Moroccan boy :nutcase:

Well that's it so far.

What makes it "average at best"? It's a great film about art and relationships
