I just watched the original last night, with a teenage cousin who'd never seen it (sent him to get a drink during the R rated scene :eek:). I impressed upon him that the movie was made 30 years ago,...

Awkward, unexplained disguise. Ever see the episode of Seinfeld where Jerry and George had moustaches at the start? He looked ridiculous like that.

x1000 on Prisoners, one of the most gripping and suspenseful movies I've ever seen.

x2 on Nightcrawler. It's pretty good too.

No coincidence Jake Gyllenhaal is in both of them, he's really...

Good suggestions above. How about The Raid & The Raid 2? More in the martial arts genre but loads of action.

All I saw was a trailer and it looked like everything I've come to dislike about Johnny Depp all in one movie, delivered via a 15 years too late Austin Powers rip off. Not surprised at the lack of a...

I believe our own species from 100 years ago would believe what we have and can do now to be magical. As Dean Roddey said just a few posts ago, Einstein himself would probably be more astounded at...

I was on a plane with only enough time for one more movie. Started this up and oinked it after 10-15 minutes. I had a profound feeling of "I don't give a %#%" about this and was done. Switched...

Speaking of, anyone know what sort of filming technique they used in this scene? The action has an odd jerkiness to it, like it was filmed at 24 fps but with a very high shutter making for no motion...
