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.
 
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was pretty great
 
Lars and the Real Girl. One of the most touching movies I've seen in years with the most endearing characters you'll find.
 
id recommend The Usual Suspects to those who havent seen it, saw that for the first time recently. great film and the twist ending is classic
 
Just t

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:
 
Jawbreaker
Old Boy
Across The Universe
Zombi 2
Taxi Driver
The Cat In The Hat (with Mike Myers :woot: )

Terrible movie
.

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.
 
The Way Of The Gun.

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
 
Memento
No subtitle for Primer
Terrible film.
Smartest GUYS in the room.

Terrible movie.

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