Anyone Seen A Really Good Film Recently They Can Recommend?

Recommended Posts

Looking for something in the cinema or on DVD

Can't fault your approach.

I'm watching Fast and Furious, Tokyo Drift right now on cable. It's terrible.

Another British film (made in Scotland)...The Illusionist. Time Out gave it 5 stars. Old fashioned animation, beautifully detailed. Scenes in Paris, London, Edinburgh and the Highlands. A gentle and relaxing watch for those who're exhausted / hung over / easily pleased / can't afford a spa holiday.

I only watch the old films now especially those from the very late 40s, the 50s, and early 60s.

A sample.

The Long Memory- John Mills

Waterloo Road- John Mills

The Lady Killers

The Smallest Show On Earth

:D

me too , i just find the quality of acting so much better

The Lady Killers is excellent

my other faves are

Whisky Galore

escape from Stalag 17

and Arsenic and old lace

i also find the cartoons from that era way superior to

anything from the 70's onwards

I very recently saw Religulous...I thought it was very thought provoking...

As for British films, there's Bronson (about the prisoner Charles Bronson)...It gets very bizarre at times..Has anyone seen Pierrepoint? I've heard it's a "cracker"...

I watched The Secret In Their Eyes yesterday. Very good. If you look it up, dont read the plot...... Why would you read the plot of a mystery/thriller before watching it? You can sort of see the twist coming, if you're paying attention, but probably only for about 5 minutes before the reveal.

I maintain that all HPCers should watch The Fool.

I'd second this. Very well put together and wry. But scary too. The screenshot above is when the Senator says without thinking, "You don't need to pass an IQ test to become a Senator" and the pregnant pause afterwards could not have been scripted better.

Shutter Island.

Seconded, absolutely superb film. It even has a tangible plot - rare these days!

You'll need to watch it twice.

Also worth seeing - IMO only:

Sunshine (outstanding FX and soundtrack from Underworld) - from about 2007
