I don't want any of that How High is TEH UBEREST BOMB DANK MOVIE EVAR crap, give me recommendations with some substance...

watch tony jaas warrior king
its basically one long fight scene with no plot. the plot can be summed up like this "man gets elephants stolen from him. man kills everyone"

During watching Once were Warriors I received damage to both forearms from the two girls next to me (fingernails).
After watching Stealing Beauty I had sex under the stars.
True Lies made me laugh as much as any movie.

I both Waking Life and Dr. Strangelove, both classics in their own right

I've been meaning to check out Everything is Illuminated, and will now

Easy Rider and Badder Santa are great films as well

I will check out both, Once Were Warriors and Stealing Beauty, True Lies is already in the collection...


Thank you for your recommendations guys and keep em coming everyone

And the Grieves Pick of the week is the movie Rockers, it is a Reggae influenced film from the 70's/80's(?) About a guy who plays in a band, gets his motorcycle stolen and his quest to find his bike...

Originally called Tom-Yum-Goong, and released as The Protector in the US... so it might be easier for you to find under that name.

So I got the next two days off and have five days to watch the following...

The Departed - I know I know, it is a bit late on the draw but I am just now getting around to watching this one

Delicatessen - SSD, I trust your tastes, our store didn't have the other two you suggested so I got the one about the cannibals..

The Protector - War over Elephants in Thialand, How could I not...

Brazil - The one repeat, I haven't seen this one in years. I Felt like a little dystopia could do me some good

Akira - This kid that comes in the store has been harassing me about this movie all week so I decided to risk it. I don't usually dig japanime, most of it is so generic..

Once again thanks for the suggestions and keep em coming...

If you haven't seen it already check out the pic SLC Punk, It's about a punker from salt lake city who battles an identity crisis, it has a kid who is purma fried, acided out sex in the park and some angst filled violence.

akira is bad ass

off the top of my head-

city of god (Brazilian gangster flick)

grizzly man (man loves bear, man goes to wild to be with bear, man gets eaten by bear, true story, watch extremely drunk and high)

almost famous (youve probably seen this but it was on tv the other night and it is one of my fav movies of all time.)

jimi hendrix woodstock dvd (got this the other day, awesome to get high and watch the performance)

Brotherhood of the wolf(awesome french movie about killer wolves and badass guys that fight them. monica bellucci sex scene for icing)

all i can think of atm

oh and if your a dylan fan check out no direction home, the documentary martin scorcesy(sp?) did on him. cool shit.

Exclamation

Again, I would second on Brazil as Grieves suggested, and third on Akira as both Grieves and Waves suggested.

Some notable older 'classic' favourites of mine...

Kundun-Scorcese's tale of the Dahli lama...

American Pop-Ralph Bakshi's animated story of how music is passed down through several generations of one family...

Detroit Rock City-story about 4 guys trying to get to a Kiss concert in Detroit. Edward Furlongs puke scene is......well, terribly disgusting and reminds me of, well, my younger self at one time.

Full Metal Jacket-one of Kubrick's best IMO....'This is my rifle. There are many like it but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my rifle is useless. Without my rifle I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my rifle and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of my enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen.'

The Evil Dead Trilogy-'Shop smart, Shop S-Mart!'

All of these should be watched without anyone who likes to talk during the films....IMO.

re Evil Dead - The basement zombie is my fav. The root rape scene is also noteworthy.
I'd be interested to know what you think of AKIRA, strange to think how it would stack up, seeing it for the first time after already seeing everything else, reverse chronologically.
Kundun is also my fav Scorcese.
