    (Just to clarify, the flicks I mentioned on the previous page are what I consider 5/5. I would not put Alive a notch below those.)

    Some 4/5 IMO:

    Match Point
    Carlito's Way
    Slumdog Millionaire
    The Taking of Pehlam 1,2 3(original)
    In the Bedroom
    Jerry Maquire
    Clear and Present Danger
    Ocean's Eleven(remake)
    Blue is the Warmest Color
    Rosemary Baby(borderline 5)
    The French Connection(borderline 5)
    Psycho
    Etc.

    Carlito's Way is def a 5
    Same w Match Point for that plot turn. Really cool
    French Connection is prolly a 5 but that uberdepressing 70s bad-guys-win-all-for-naught ending is always a bummer lol

    BTW if Clear & Present Danger is a 4 then it follows Patriot Games has to be at least a 4.5, non? :p

    The real question is *HFRO vs PGs/C&PD* ?

    Aka who was the best Jack Ryan? (obv Affleck and the newer dude don't even merit ranking)

    Hunt for Red October > Clear & Present > Patriot Games

    Who was the best? I mean..Harrison Ford.
    How many choices are out there?

    But Alec only did 1 film. Granted, it was the best...we agree on that....but I would go with 2 very good flicks vs 1 great one.

    One of Ridley Scott's forgotten gems.

    And yes, Baldwin and Red October rock the fat ass.

    Carlito's Way is a very touching film. Saw it like a year ago. Wish I would of seen it when I was younger.

    Saw The duellists earlier this year, loved Keitel performance. This afternoon I watched Amadeus again and enjoyed it again. Then I watched this spanish comedy, a little jewel of absurd humor

    Recommended, especially if you can see it in original version. 4/5

    UNFORGIVEN Clint Eastwood's excellent 1992 western which he directed and stared in. Great cast Cllint, Morgan Freeman Gene Hackman and Richard Harris. Great story of the fall from grace of rehabilitated gunslinger and some visual nods back to his spaghetti western days, bruatal realist example of the western genre. First time I have seen it in 20 years, (the joy of cable) would have to rank it alongside The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence as my two favourite westerns. 5/5

    Foxcatcher was very inaccurate according to Dan Gable, Kurt Angle, and other wrestlers who were close to the situation. That's why I haven't bothered seeing it.


    Great movie. I love how there is no clear cut bad guy, or good guy.

    I fucking love Unforgiven, and this scene in particular.


    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]


    Clint gets angrier and angrier then a minute in he grabs the bottle of booze and takes the first drink he's had in 10 years. But it's so underplayed and without any big fanfare or music coming up or some witty catchphrase you just know he's now preparing to cross a line from which he won't be coming back.

    'All right, I'm coming out.
    Any man I see out there, I'm gonna shoot him.
    Any sumbitch takes a shot at me, I'm not only gonna kill him, but I'm gonna kill his wife, all his friends, and burn his damn house down.' lol




    'What we do in the shadows' ..great doco about vampires from NZ
