my roomate is a huge tarkovsky fan, soviet era sci fi in general, so ive watched alot of the guys films, the stalker<i think thats the name>,solaris,rubliev, couple of others. the stuff is interesting and most of it is good, but i feel a little brow beaten by the vast amount of dialogue, not to imply corny special effects would help or maybe an obligatory laser gun fight, they couldnt afford that shit under communism, but man........russians talk alot, like talk a real lot.

ive been into the western/samurai movie phenomenon that happened in the 60's and seventies where kirosawa movies where made into westerns and vice versa, fist full of dollars, magnificent seven. there are a couple of others that i want to look into because i had only heard about this recently.

No shit...
And when he stands there about to die....he's got some balls!

"He's only got one barrel....when he fires....pull your pistols gentlemen and shoot him down like the dirty scoundrel he is"

click

"Misfire! Kill the son of a bitch!"

Moments later...

LittleBill: "I dont deserve to die like this...I was building a house"

William Money: "Deserves got nothing to do with it"

BAM!


I have two films on the PC downloaded from P2P

Well, someone asked for fucked up movies so I thought I might recommed a fairly good one I saw just a few days ago, "Eternal sunshine on the spotless mind".
Take the ability to erase particular memories from peoples' organic databases. Put it into the hands of a small, well-meaning corporation. Allow for the fact that fleeing from the bad memories are never a good solution. Put in Jimmie Carry...
All in all a quite interesting film.
Oh yea... Monty Python.

You know...the skinny boy is an acomplished actor including some stage in NY
He is also staring in the "West Memphis Three" film.

His tall friend.......Harmony Korine (writer/director) saw him on a day time talk show about neglected kids.

I really really hope you meant the 1930's version.


Anyway, recommendations from someone who spent all his pay checks on mushrooms.

The Ugly - Best film to come out of New Zealand, until that Whale Rider thing last year. If you're into serial killer films with an actuall story and depth, oh and black blood, watch this.

Oldboy - Basic premis is a revenge film, with essentially no good guys. Has the best scene with a hammer you'll ever see.

Pieces of April - Yes, it has Tom Cruise's (literal)love child, but, if you have a doof and have nothing better to do except breathe, watch it.

The Killing Fields - If you've never watched this you have no right to recommend a film, or have a brain for that matter.

The Machinist - This was totally slated in the British press, (from what I read anyway), but it's another overlooked and underhyped, better than "we prefer explosions over acting" films that are vomitted out of holywood every single month...film.

A Tale of Two Sisters (Janghwa, Hongryeon) - Another Asian masterpiece that is horribly overlooked, and yes, I've heard there is a remake coming. Two sisters with a secret, or so you think until the end. (Probably better than Dark Water, Ringu and The Eye - also thrown in for recommendations, not the holywood wank by the way)

Save the Green Planet (Jigureul jikyeora!) - More asian master class lessons. I first saw this at a party, I was very stonned, the telling thing is, I enjoyed it when I wasn't too. It's about a guy who can basically be described as mental, who thinks aliens are invading the planet....though, scf-fi fans stay away.

Does anyone else like Tarkovsky's work? I've only seen Andrei Rublev though, so what else could be recommended?

Solaris is good, much better than the recent Hollywood crap.

Stalker is another great one, but you should read the book first I suppose ("Roadside Picnic" by Strugatski brothers)

All his work on IMDB

Some of my favourites:

1. Amelie (the best movie ever filmed!)
2. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (and Snatch of course :))
3. Trainspotting
4. Reservoir Dogs (in fact you can add here all Tarantino films)
5. American Beauty
6. In China They Eat Dogs & Old Men in New Cars (Danish)
7. The Motorcycle Diaries
8. Requiem for a Dream
9. The 51st State (scouse is so damn funny!)
10. LOTR (because I was a Tolkien fan since I read Hobbits when I was 10 :vampire: )
