    Well this is a topic that I really like, so I´m glad that I helped you.


    Just to add some cartoon title that I like very much is Robots, and Ice Age. A scanner darkly it´s a very different and interesting movie.

    Taken is in my list (that I have probably 150 titles that couldn´t see yet.

    P.s: What you guys think about the movie Awake it´s a bit fake but I really liked the main story.

    The Prestige
    Sunshine
    Batman Gotham Knight (animated)
    Event Horizon
    Outpost
    Stalker (1979) - could be interesting if you want to see the inspiration for the STALKER games.

    If Brokeback Mountain doesn't qualify as "man" film, i don't know what does! :lol:

    Anyway, these are great recommendations. I'd like to add the new Pixar movie "Up". I wasn't expecting much, but especially the first half hour grabbed my by the throat out of nowhere.
    Another unexpectedly good one was Cold Blooded, with Jason Priestly. The suprising past is that you can actually stomach him in this one :)
    Last one i'm going to name is Arlington Road. The most perfect thriller i ever saw.

    Yep, I agree. Also Juno which has been said is a great film.

    Some of the ones that wont have been suggested which I quite like for a bit of fun are Street Fighter the Movie (the JCVD/Kylie one, not seen the new one) and South Park the Movie. Other stuff like Men in Black and Independence Day are always a laugh, too :)

    If you're willing to go subtitles;

    Avalon
    Taxi (The original French version)
    Yamakasi
    Banlieue 13 (District 13/B13/Borough 13/whatever else us English mutilate it to)
    Mr. 73 (French, get subtitle hat going again!)
    Infernal Affairs 1-3 (oops. Chinese! Subtitle time! Andy Lau is fantastic)
    Pan's Labyrinth (Spanish, though, I suspect you knew that)

    If you like cyberpunk type stuff, then I'd suggest;
    Renaissance (French, get yer subtitle hat on!)
    New Rose Hotel
    Thirteenth Floor
    The Gene Generation
    eXistenZ

    Ummm.

    The Shadow's good for a laugh.
    Seven Pounds
    Another vote for Dark City - Excellent film.
    Syriana
    Thank You For Smoking
    Another vote for Outpost (Assuming the previous mention means the Zombie flick with Ray Stevenson)
    Residen Evil: Degeneration is pretty okay. CGI job, not too much horrible voice acting.
    High Fidelity
    Meet Joe Black is pretty entertaining, for a Brad Pitt movie.. Must be Hopkins being so awesome.
    How To Lose Friends and Alienate People is a good giggle.
    The Girl Next Door (Surprisingly Olyphant doesn't suck!)
    City of Ember
    GATTACA
    Gran Torino is pretty.. Okay.
    Inkheart
    The Rock. Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage are pretty good in that.
    3:10 to Yuma
    Boondock Saints
    Felon is.. Okay. If only to be in awe at how much Val Kilner has let himself go.
    Dead Snow is a hilarious zombie Nazi film. Very, very bad. To the stage of hilarity.
    The Prestige (I cannot get over how awesome David Bowie was as Tesla)

    Chinese, and it is the original film from which the departed pretty much ripped all the story out of and ruined the ending. Since the OP has seen the departed and given it a 9 :blah:, i recommend it too, along with the 2 other films in the infernal affairs series (one a prequel and one a sequel, although the one that the departed was based was the first one out)

    Bah! Yep. Apparently it's not a good idea to specify languages when just waking up!

    And yeah - Departed utterly boned the story. So glad I saw IA first.

    +1 A little cheesy but its 1 of my favourite films, The sequals are pretty much the same but more OTT so may be worth picking up also. Ive got 1-3 on dvd but cant seem to find 4 anywhere.

    I've seen 4 in HMV once or twice.

    I loved Stallones cameo in 3. I loved the fact that the person dubbing him into french actually sounded like it might even be him, too.

    If you want a bit of Hong Kong action try Hard Boiled, however DO NOT WATCH THE DUBBED VERSION. I saw about twenty minutes of it and I wanted to shoot my tv.

    The story doesn't make a lick of sense but I'd be hard pressed to find a more action packed opening ten minutes than this film has. The rest of the action scenes are pretty spectacular as well.

    To be fair, and Chow Yun Fat/John Woo work is worth a watch. Tragic Hero - Tragicly subtitled and dubbed, is absolutely hilarious.

    It is literally an entire movie of guys flying through the air after being shot.

    Downfall (aka Der Untergang), is fantastic, providing you don't mind subtitles.

    Casino - sheer brilliance, best gangster film ever made. Goodfellas is epic too but I think Casino ends better.

    I thought Apocalypto was pretty good too, real heart wrencher.

    The Business is another good british gangster film. And then there are timeless classics like Gladiator etc...

    Oh oh oh and Withnail and I!!!

    The Hangover is pretty damn funny too.
