    Fight Club is wicked!!!

    ive saw 9 of them films, im a movie connoisseur.

    K-pax

    they are to good films by my boi Kevin Spacey

    loved Shawshank... have to say Leon is a favourite ... (made me think I wanted to watch it again and again!)

    Higher learning is really good. Hotel Rwanda, and Blood Diamond, both excellent.You should definately watch American History X and Crash! I'll try and think of some more. Oh yeah, Boondock Saints - absolutely fab!

    I have to agree, two of my favourite films, I could watch them again and again. The soundtrack to Leon is superb.

    Shawshank is a top film, as is anything to do with Samuel L Jackson.

    Favourite oldie is Breakfast Club :thumbsup:

    Ooh, just remembered, also loving Tarantino's work.

    Sleepers was pretty good too!

    Naked Gun

    Schindler's List

    Yeah, Sleepers is great! I've thought of some more: Stand By Me, Devil's Advocate, Seven Years In Tibet, Murder In The First,

    What Crash are we talking about? If it's the David Cronenberg one - that'll definitely get you thinking.

    and not forgetting......... Long Kiss Goodnight.. top film!

    I really enjoyed Garden State. One of those indie films that kinda makes you think and has a brill soundtrack too You should watch Eternal Sunshine if you haven't yet, another great film where you have no clue what's going on. Lost In Translation is odd like that. You like it but have no idea why lol

    Another great film I forgot to mention is "Pi".

    Two Classics I like: Scarface and Once Upon A Time In America

    Apart from some of the newer ones already listed: Derailed and Apocalypto are wicked!

    Yh brilliant film and you can pick it up cheap in the sales... cheapest I can see at the moment is £4.95 @ DVD.CO.UK but try playtrade first...its made by the guy that did This IS England and thats really popular too...never seen it myself..but Paddy Considine is awesome in it and is getting big quickly with Hot Fuzz, In America & Bourne Ultimatum hios most recent work....Definitely worth getting....

    also like I said before try Boondock Saints...its really good and very different... £6 at Zavvi is the only place I can find selling it and playtrade has it at £27.99...its a very cult film and has been deleted
