you know, maybe i'm getting to be an old fart, but i won't subject myself to crap like this any more. somebody gave me all kinds of grief on the forum about not wanting to see "apocalypto", but i just can't stand that kind of stuff anymore. when i was much younger, i used to look for movies like that all the time. i used to love the "creature feature" on saturday night telly.

after reading that post on morgellon's, i saw the trailer for "bugs" with ashley judd, and i just about got ill. i also saw the trailer for spiderman iii, and the black websuit made me think of it too.

a movie i saw just this week that i love is "defending your life" by albert brooks. it's hysterically funny and it's very spiritual.

"children of men" was the best movie of 2006, imo. quite a bit of secret government imagery in it. there's a scene where the song "in the court of the crimson king" is playing, and the scene/song just haunted me for weeks.

jees I've seen borat a few times and i still have to look away.. lee evans is cool i reckon. I still love chubby brown, purely for the fact he won't bow down to all this pc shit.. and of course bill hicks was a class act, sorely missed..

Yeah, I have to agree that Borat is just my kind of humor. It has to be a bit off-color for me to laugh, and that movie had me grinning in between the laughter, all the way through.

I have a lot of favorite movies, and they are, in no particular order:


  • Kill Bill, Volume 1 & 2
  • Fried Green Tomatoes
  • Lord of the Rings, 1 thru 3
  • Star Wars, All of them
  • Alien, All of them
  • The Hours
  • The Matrix
  • Anything with Jet Li
  • Total Recall
  • Terminator, All of them
  • Pirates of the Caribbean, All of them but the last one, Dead Man's Chest, was superb!
  • Beetlejuice
  • Batman begins
  • Devil's advocate
  • A perfect murder (remake of Dial M for murder)
  • A.I.
  • Independence Day
  • The Bourne Identity, and Bourne Supremacy
  • House of Flying Daggers (I really enjoy martial arts movies!)
  • ....and the list goes on.

Jesus,i could i forget the matrix films.
I cant for the life of me understand why the last matrix film was roundly slated.
It was f**king brilliant,loved every second of it.i suspect the criticism came from the arty-farty brigade.
And again,i left batman begins out of my list.
I think Christian bale as something about him,superb actor,only johnny deppe can match him in Edward scissorhands as bale does in Equilibrium.
Did deppe win anything for scissorhands?
I dont usually go over the top for hollywood stars,but theses 2 guys are the best.....recently surprised to find out that bale is welsh.

It has to be 'Day of the Dead' (1985) for me. The film simply critiques Western civilisation brilliantly and is the last great American horror film, in my eyes. It is by far the best of the 'Dead' series, and that is saying something. 'Day' needs to be watched, more than once, simply because the first time you watch it, you expect 'Dawn of the dead' again, but this film is so much more. On its second viewing the dialogue and themes, mainly the hysteria of masculinity (that pervades and structures the entire hierarchy of our culture) and the ravages of capitalism really grab a hold of you. Sheer brilliance Romero at his peak with a budget of a couple of million.

Oh Yeah, almost forgot the dialogue is simply fucking hilarious, here's one of the best lines in the film .

When i first saw the film in the 80's,you think its just gore n horror for the sake of it.......but it aint,theres a message there....as you rightly point out false......maybe thats why after all this time people know of the film,are interested in it,even if they dont know quite why.............you cant kid people,theres summat instinctive about zombie films.......there's always a message.

Again,another film i failed to mention,the ending of the last 'lord of the rings'...the ending caught me by surprise,im glad i was in the house by myself
cos i was struggling like mad to hold back the tears.....the gorgeous song by our own ANNIE LENNOX didnt help.A stunning, beautiful song.
