    Sweeny Todd - The Tim Burton/Johny Depp Version.
    While it is a musical, i really did enjoy it.

    There's a sequel to Boondock Saints?

    Also, my recommendations (probably repeats, but so be it)

    District 9
    Moon
    Star Trek (yes, the new one)
    Nightwatch
    Daywatch



    Mini series:

    Taken - just watched it again, and it's still good. :D


    Well typical. I was aiming for a long and epic list, but I had a brain fart and can't come up with any recent titles.

    Certainly not new but if you like war films there is always the greats like "Das Boot" if you've never seen it.

    A few random films I like and haven't seen when scanning the thread which I would recommend:

    Ghost in the shell (the orginal film, an anime but a damn good one)
    The Sky Crawlers (another anime but has some brillant aerial combat scenes)
    The Last Bullet (war film set in the Pacific about an Austrailian and Japanese snipers)
    The Bunker (horror/war film, just forgive the accents of the British cast playing Germans)

    There's more but work equals the mind is occupied with stuff besides alot of excellent films have already been listed!

    Reading off a random selection:

    3:10 to Yuma - First good western i've seen in a long time
    28 days later (and 28 weeks later) - quite scary in some parts, but utterly fantastic film (weeks isn't quite as good)
    Fifth Element - If for some reason you haven't seen this, go and see it. NOW. (also the same director as leon)
    Silence of the lambs - As above.
    Moon - Just an amazing film
    no country for old men
    Requiem for a dream - WARNING: Depressing as hell, very good film though
    Stardust - It is a kids film, but still a fun watch (same as fifth element really)
    sunshine - another danny boyle film, very very good.
    Assassination of Jesse James - Quite slow, very very pretty film though
    Watchmen - One of the best "superhero" films made to date
    Zombieland - Funny as hell.

    Oh yes there is. Excuse me if I'm wrong but I quickly read it somewhere a couple of weeks ago. They had the movie released in the USA but only a limited amount of shows in limited amount of cinemas (somewhat similar to MJ's, This Is It) but I guess even more exclusive.

    Here's the link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1300851/

    I'm not sure whether or not the movie is able to top the first one, since the first one, in my opinion, was amazing. (maybe that's because I like movies with a religious flavour to it).

    Still curious to see if it's going to hit Europe next year. (I guess it will).

    To add another movie to this topic: "Alive" is a pretty decent movie too. It's based on a true story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uruguayan_Air_Force_Flight_571

    Quite cool :)

    You probably won't relate to my 'B' movie queue from the 1950s and 1960s like: When Worlds Collide, The originals of War of the Worlds and Day the Earth Stood Still. Rocketship XM, First Men in the Moon, They Came from Outer Space, Attack of the Flying Saucers, etc

    /edit
    And Attack of the 50 Foot Woman.

    Yeah I must see tomorrow if I could be arsed. Right now I'm way too hammered to make a list.

    Yeah I'm afraid the "real" movies from that period look bad enough to me :/ Suppose it's just the way I am, I like the polish of new films, but those must also have a good storyline and actors. That's also what makes finding the films so darn hard. :sigh: Plenty of unseen classics out there that I just can't watch.

    Evil Dead films are great fun and Bubba Hotep is one of fave Bruce Campbell starring films!

    Thought of a few more films that seen not to be present (probably as every one must have seen them by now but as always worth a re-watch):

    Blade Runner (forget which cut is the supposed best version)
    Alien (the orginal and best)
    Clerks & Clerks II (some of the best movie conversations I cna ever remember in those two)

    Watched Disney Pixar's "UP" with my wife last night. It was great! Also, 'There will be blood" is a good one
