But that's it.

Sorry, never heard of them.  They go into the hopper with everyone else.

There are some forms of cultural illiteracy that I am comfortable with.

Really, you'll just let Pecker, Serial Mom, Female Trouble, Cecil B Demented, Crybaby, Coffee and Cigarettes, Broken Flowers, Dead Man, Ghost Dog, and Stranger Than Paradise just fall into the trash bin?


For shame.

I'll add Ghost Dog Way of the Samurai and Dead Man to the end of my list.
Not a huge Waters fan, though. (except I really like the message of Cecil B. Demented, but I'd hardly call it one of the best films ever.)

That's because you can't see true genius when it teabags you.

ghost dog is the movie where this one guy (minor role) is building a huge ship on his rooftop for no apparent reason at all, right?

i remember noticing that when watching it for the 2nd time.

great movie :)

Yeesh. I figured this thread would have died out. So, a few more.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
And to get you out of the emotional murk that it might put you in:
The Royal Tennenbaums.

Also, A few suggestions from others that I want to second.

Quote
Kung-Fu Hustle

Though, this movies precursor, Shaolin Soccer, was much better, IMO

Quote
Tropic Thunder
Quote
12 Monkeys
Quote
Pans Labyrinth
Quote
City of God

There was a version of this that also came with a documentary on the real life situation that inspired the movie, and it was a really cool documentary.

Quote
Cecil B. Demented
Quote
Coffee and Cigarettes

Any movie with Bill Murray, Tom Waits and Wu Tang clan members RZA and GZA is pure fucking win.

I'd just like to say that I really like the first seven minutes of Kung Fu hustle... but I don't care for that movie.
... but hey, I can just watch the first seven minutes of it on youtube.
Kung Fu Hustle (the abridged version)

Oh, and for City of God, I have that version of the film... dont worry, I'll be getting to it eventually.

I'm trying to go back and rewatch these movies as I review them, believe it or not I've actually had notes on the Encino Man review laying around for about a month. There are a few on my list that might take some work for me to get a hold of, and other movies that I'm sure I'm forgetting that I can add to the list. Although, I'm going to try to crank out at least two a night for the next couple weeks, assuming I'm not otherwise occupied.
