    Good Films?

    Ok I know someone posted a similar thread not so long ago but people were putting in some classics that the OP hadnt seen.

    I know some people on this site own well over 1000 dvds.

    So I want to know the best films old or new.

    Im not really a Hollywood fan,
    Horror tends to bore me although I love 'The Shining' and 'Let the right one in'

    Ive seen a lot of the classics or must-sees.

    Please post the films imdb link if you can, so i can see the plot etc

    Seen about a boy but dont fancy watching Marley and me, heard it isnt that great and doesnt seem my type of thing.

    Anything else?

    happy gilmore is always great when nothing else is on...like all Sandlers films, Billy madison, Big Daddy etc

    Step Brothers is another good comedy but Ive seen that too.

    Heard good things about Leon so will try that and will give Ronin a watch just for de niro.

    Thanks

    Billy Bathgate is also worth watching- imdb.com/tit…53/

    have you seen the orphange? it's a really good spanish horror (i know you said you weren't keen on them but it's brilliant, and more creepy than scary) thinks it's made by the same ppl who made pans laberynth also a brilliant film

    yeah loved pans labyriynth so will try that....i just dont really like mainstream horrors.

    David Lynch stuff is good.

    I found requiem for a dream scary...well i would say more disturbing than anything

    I'd give thumbs up to "Crash" aswell... and Shawshank Redemption... 2 of my favourites.

    Not great reviews although i know imdb isnt reliable for knowing a good film between a poor one.

    The other one you gave me looks good and this has dustin hoffman in so should be worth a watch

    Keep them coming everyone!

    'In Bruges' is a good film, Brendan Gleeson is brilliant in it.
    A more obscure good watch is 'Man bites dog' although its b&w with subtitles.
    The Bourne films are great too.

    Almost Famous
    The Fountain

    I back up the Almost Famous recommendation and add my own personal favorites.

    Stand By Me
    Little Manhattan
    I am Sam
    Butterfly Effect

    You can't go wrong with any of them, trust me.

    Grosse Point Blank
    Fifth Element
    The Butterfly effect

    oh haha I see post #27 has butterfly effect too! It's such a good film.

    I know it's one of my favorites! To the OP don't be put off that it has Ashton Kutcher in it, he can actually act.

    I love the Bourne films too.
