    Film Recommendations Please!

    I am after a film or two to watch tonight, ideally something along the lines of Windtalkers or Lord of War but will consider anything. Preferable an action film, but will consider a comedy.

    The Losers is ok. Action and comedy.

    Do not, under any circumstances, watch Kick Ass. Worst load of tosh i've sat through in a long time.

    Kick-Ass is very good.

    Most people seem to think Kick Ass is really good, I've yet to watch it but I'm not keen on the 'look' of it. The Losers dvdscr I have but it is not that greater quality.
    So ok maybe another requirement is I got to be able to 'acquire' a HD version as well :thumbsup:
    As it shall be watched on the PJ and fairly loud with my new av receiver :-D

    I watched Kick-Ass last night, I thought it was awesome. Got half way through The Losers and turned it off - might watch the rest now actually.

    Not really, as I can make my own opinion
    Only asking for recommendations to find films that might be similar to Windtalkers/Lord of War etc as I've seen them fairly recently (seen them many times before though) and thus wouldn't mind something else similar.

    Thought Daybreakers was fairly enjoyable.

    It has an interesting concept and some decent scenes. It's what 3 stars was invented for.

    Yeah sorry I hate subtitles, if I want to read, I'll pick up a book (which reminds me to finish Stephen Fry's Autobiography!).
    Bad Lieutenant I shall try and source then cheers.

    Holding out for HD version of that myself. Looks like the film merits it.

    Looks alright, only dvdscr atm but will keep it noted ;-)

    I thought kick ass was an awesome film, there's something incredibly funny about watching an 11yo girl getting shot in the chest by her dad. Also the same girl annihilating a room full of gangsters is pretty impressive.

    In terms of similar films to the 2 you mentioned, we were soldiers is pretty good.

    I watched both of these at the weekend and thought they were both rubbish and certainly not that funny.
