    Memento is a really awesome film. If you haven't seen it, go rent it or something ASAP. It's pretty innovative and a great movie-watching experience. :up:

    The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is a must-see movie. I can't recommend it enough. If you really like character-driven dramas or great acting, you'll love the movie.

    Happy Feet's a great film - one that I can't recommend enough. It's like the new "Watership Down;" for an expanded view, check out the review on my blog.

    Speaking of Richard Adams stuff, I'd also recommend The Plague Dogs. If you search through my thread history, I actually hosted the entire film up on here, through youtube. It shouldn't be that hard to find. It's depressing, but it's more than worth it.

    Lars and the Real Girl. One of the most touching movies I've seen in years with the most endearing characters you'll find.

    I fell asleep watching The Exorcist. What a boring pile of crap that is. Although I have seen the end a couple of times and that's pretty cool. "Your mother sucks ***** in hell" makes me laugh everytime. :woot:

    There is on the one I own.

    Then you just don't get it. Super Troopers is pure gold, it only gets better each time you watch it.

    I was beginning to think i was the only one who liked this movie. Quite the hidden gem

    Documentaries:
    F**k -about the f-word
    This FIlm is Not Yet Rated- about the bias MPAA
    The Champion- about Danny Trejo

    everyone focuses onthe action, when the political satire is amazing.

    the grammar (lack of a better word) mistakes can be chalked up to international release DVDs
