Default movies

I've been renting some kickass movies lately and I'ld like to share some of the better titles.

Detroit Rock City - A must see movie

American Wedding - Totally stupid, I loved it.

Lord of the Rings Return of the King - Oh hell yeah

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back - Recommended by many people here and they weren't shitting, I laughed my ass off.

Head of State - Chris Rock and Bernie Mac become The Pres and Vice Pres. I'ld actually vote for them with glee and I'm sooooooooooo white but I know they'ld do a great job.

2 Fast 2 Furious - Not quite as good as the original but still kicked ass and the race scenes were awesome.

Haha, I love that film. But I guess I'm bound to.

Renton: "It's shite being Scottish. We're the lowest of the low! The scum of the fucking Earth - the most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat on civilization. Some people hate the English. I don't. They're just wankers. We, on the other hand, are colonised by wankers. Can't even find a decent culture to get colonised by. We're ruled by effete assholes. It's a shite state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and all the fresh air in the world won't make any fucking difference!"

Let's see now...

Shrek 2
Chasing Amy (to add to the list of all the other Kevin Smith movies listed
Spriggan (anime, action packed...the box describes it as a blend of Raiders of the Lost Ark and a James Bond adventure...and it's even better than that makes it sound, IMHO))

A Mighty Wind (oh man...mockumentary at it's absolute finest...even better than Best in Show in some ways, also a great movie)

Total Recall (one of my fav Shwarzenegger movies)

Spirited Away (anime, magical in a way Disney used to be)

Dogma (probably my favorite of Kevin Smith's movies)

In no particular order:

- Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels - quite possibly the best... or at least one of the best movies ever made. If only every movie had a storyline this air-tight and interesting
- Pulp Fiction - obvious reasons
- Operation Condor - cool Jackie Chan flick with a hint of Indiana Jones
- Raiders of the Lost Arc - good old Indiana Jones.. best one of the series
- Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion - completely hilarious... especially the dance scene at the end... totally wonderful. It's funny in a "stupid funny" kind of way though... so it might not appeal to all people (which is probably why it wasn't really all that popular)
- Catch me if you Can - Actually made me like Leonardio Dicaprio (sp) a bit. Excellent movie
- Midnight Run - I don't have this one... but it is definatly one of my all-time favs. DeNiro and Groden are a magnificent pair... and the dialogue in the movie is just fantastic.
- Spirited Away - Yeah ZDD already mentioned it... but it was really... really.. wonderful... so I felt it deserved another mention.
- Restoration - Fantastic yet hard to find movie about a doctor's experiences through England during the plague. Definatly on my "Everybody must see this movie at least once" list.
- Back to the Future - yeah.... the first one. Definatly a classic.
- Seven - Morbid and depressing... but an excellent movie.

EDIT:

guh... how could I forget:

- Stargate - Probably my favorite Sci-fi movie of all time. Ra was just so awesome.

Lord of the Rings, all 3
Star Wars, original trilogy
Indiana Jones, all 3
Back to the Future, all 3

See a pattern forming?

Recently watched:
Shanghi Knights (and the other one forgot the name)
Art of War
Bad Santa
Behind Enemy Lines
Planet of the Apes (the new one)
The Mummy
Count of Monte Cristo

The rest of what I saw sucked recently.

How'd I forget Pulp Fiction and Stargate?

Also, Kill Bill vols. 1 and 2 are great.

here are a few good ones that have been swimming through my mind...

Team America: World Police --- friggin' hilarious. must see for everyone

Garden State --- best movie of 2004. if you don't already love natalie portman, you sure will after this flick.

Iron Giant -- the last great american-made hand drawn animated film

The Bishops's Wife -- fantastic movie for the holiday season. stars cary grant, loretta young, and david niven. the film was crappily remade by whitney houston and denzel washington a few years ago

Speaking of which, you know The Incredibles and The Iron Giant were directed by the same guy, right?
