    I'm not going to be as fancy and sophisticated and post the trailers, but I will name three films that I love. Haha

    Gray Matters (2006), starring Heather Graham, is a harkening back to good ol' screwball romantic comedies back in the Golden Age of cinema with the twist that she is a lesbian. This made the film resonate with me and definitely put Graham in the list of my favorite actresses.

    The Invasion (2007), with Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig, is a grand re-imagining of Jack Finney's classic novel. Though it got landblasted in the reviews, I thought that the combination of two different directing groups gave the film a leg up over other movies and made it a mash-up of two great genres: provocative thriller and edgy science fiction.

    Nine (2009) (Daniel Day-Lewis and a list of notable and prominent actresses) is a movie I saw 21 times in theatres*--taking different people pretty much every time--and I love the crisis with which Guido has to deal. Based on 8 1/2 and the Tony-winning musical of the same name, it is a dark and bleak look at mankind with emotive points to be made.

    *I do work at a movie theatre so I did get in for free. However, I do wonder if I would have seen it that much even if I didn't get in for free. icon_biggrin.gif Just for the record though, I am not too much of a fanatic because I have only seen the film a total of 27 times.

    Attempting to embed videos drained my month's quota of IT knowledge, and I still failed, so I'm doing this the old fashioned and less visually stimulating way.

    Some favourites:

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - I used to hate Jim Carrey before seeing this. Now I kinda hate him again. Mr Popper's Penguins? Seriously?

    Children of Men - Horribly depressing but also not. And some truly awesome camera work.

    Serenity - I'm not even ashamed. This is probably my all time favourite movie. Flawed but so full of awesome. And I'm not even a Joss Whedon fanboy. Much.

    Inception and Salt. Since I'm an animation fan, Studio Ghibli films are all great, personal favorites are Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononke, Spirited Away, and Nausicaa. Pixar movies are excellent for the most part as well. Despicable Me was amazing.

    CHIdude: Mulholland Drive is a masterpiece; it is so beautifully complex and I fall in love with it more every time I see it. Naomi Watts rocks.

    And Ariodante, Hell yes the Wizard! Actually, when I drove out here to move, I purposely stopped in Cabazon to see the dinosaurs from the movie!

    The first time I saw Mullholland Drive I couldnt form an opinion about the film until a couple of days later... the thing kept haunting me. It was insane! It is pure art!

    I had a similar reaction with Black Swan, perfection!

    One of my FAVORITE movies of ALL TIME is Love Stinks....I'm not sure if many people know about it but that movie kills me every time I see it. It's about this man falling in love with this woman and vice versa but she really really wants to get married and he doesn't....that's when she turns into a pure blooded psycho...such a good movie!!

    I second this. This was a truly kick ass film. Lynich is just awesome icon_smile.gif



    Just saw this film. It is in French, but there are some pretty powerful themes in it.

    I saw Mulholland Dr and wasn't impressed with it. But I did read an article while searching for some insight on it (when it came out) and the director originally intended this to be a television pilot. So there was definitely some expanding in mind.

    @Dcblue Into the Wild was amazing!!!!

    @Semi_Fit Serenity was pretty bad-ass! Whedon is a genius and yes I'm a fanboy! (We are birthday buddies actually) And the only thing of his that I said "meh" to was Dollhouse.

    My movie, that I feel everyone should see, and I recommend in nearly every movie fueled topic I partake in is, Life As A House. It's so fantastic.

    Such an awesome movie, I turn it on every time I see it on any movie channel.

    For a personal recommendation:
    Stardust
    Only saw this recently but really enjoyed it, it's similar to "Princess Bride". Great characters, cool story/world, and Robert De Niro's character is awesome.

    Another film I believe highlights a beautiful symmetry of being human.

    Flipped
    A movie without big stars, and good to watch with yours at home.
    One of memorable quotes from the movie: "Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss. But every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare."

    Keep lights on

    All time favorite is Amélie. A French movie but so funny and artistically great. I also like Million Dollar Baby, Shawshank Redemption, Clueless, Minority Report, Cinderella Man, Memento, and Hotel Rwanda.
