    Thanks lefty. As I watch more films though, I know that means I'm eventually going to find fewer films I want to watch. If that happens, I don't know what I'll do. It's a troubling thought.

    Cliffhanger is awesome. It did the opening to Dark Knight Rises 15 years beforehand. Also I always had a thing for that chick who was in that Alaskan show. The show was shit, but she was hot in both.

    Janine Turner, from "Northern Exposure"? Yep, she was very nice.

    This is such a brilliant film with such a twist at the end been years since i've seen it but still entertaining with such a great cast and story. No hesitation 5/5

    Been a while but never stopped watching movies, lot's of garbage and uninteresting movies but a couple of good ones (full disclosure on my filmaffinity user page, basically is a web where you rate movies and check what you're friends are watching):
    [​IMG]
    The garden of earthly delights by Lech Majewski 9/10. Beautiful and touching story with Venice as background, very good acting and very interesting if you're an art lover.
    [​IMG]
    Youth by Paolo Sorrentino 7/10. Good movie with good acting but less impressive than his previous movie, harvey keitel has aged very well (#jelly)
    [​IMG]
    Swingers by Doug Liman 6/10, nice comedy.
    [​IMG]
    Spectre by Sam Mendes, saw this on the theater which made the experience more enjoyable, 6/10, on par with other Bond movies starring Daniel Craig. This one is more enjoyable because of my huge crush with Lea Seydoux since I saw her on Blue is the warmest color (10/10).
    [​IMG]
    Bob the Gambler by Melville, solid flick about a down on the luck robber, Roger Duchesne acting is very good and his dandy looks...7/10.
    [​IMG]
    Vengance is mine by Imamura 7/10. Good flick by a fine filmmaker although Imamura is a kinda of Hit or miss (at least my experience).
    [​IMG]
    Sicario by Dennis Villeneuve, saw this on theater too, I did like it...7/10, perhaps this combined with Narcos (the netflix series) and the book Cartel by Don Wislow has kept the fond memory of the movie, anyway Villeneuve is at the moment my favorite Canadian filmmaker (position previously held by Deny Arcand).

    the Russell Crowe/ Hathaway was good I thought. But it's nothing like watching it live. A few years ago I grabbed a last minute ticket at the queens theatre in London. Story and performance along with live music was breathtaking; was moved to tears. Glad I got to experience it in a theatre before watching the film.

    The film is good but it didn't move me

    Watched this a few weeks ago. Very good. Also very bleak as it reminded me of Gomorrah

    Watched this Saturday. I thought it was very good. Still a little confused with the ending.

    Watched 2 great films I liked recently.

    [​IMG]

    A young to-be engaged couple is split apart when the man goes off to war. Focus is mostly off the battlefield on their families and the woman who is at home.

    [​IMG]

    We see the daily conflicts and existential search for purpose in each individual in a middle class Taipei family. It's approximately 3 hours, but along with Lawrence of Arabia probably the only 3 hour flick I really enjoyed (have a few others to watch though).

    A few years ago somebody bought me Ronin and I wasn't really sure what to think, I'm not a big fan of heist movies unless it's noir.

    But that is one badass flick. Great cast with deniro and pryce and Sean bean, etc. Plot feels truly desperate. Car chases are I think the best I've seen.

    I love Ronin. It's a perfect film. The best Mamet script not directed by Mamet. Frankenheimer was a real badass making that one.

    I don't know if it's on the Blu-Ray but Frankenheimer's commentary on the DVD is fucking fantastic.

    ^ Still haven't seen Ronin. Still have an aversion to it from childhood when some mean spirited kid called me Ronin instead of my actual name.

    Bitch!!!

    Always loved this film. Always thought it was better than the reviews/ratings
