    Nope, but I've just looked at IMDB and it definately looks like it's worth watching. Denzel Washington's in the lead role which is always a good sign, I've yet to see a film of his I didn't like.

    whats imdb,you wont regret watching that hurricane:amazing

    It's the Internet Movie Database. Pretty much the most comprehensive source of film info.

    The Warriors
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind


    whats imdb,you wont regret watching that hurricane:amazing


    It contains info on virtually every film and TV programme ever made, essential if you're at all into films.

    It's A Wonderful Life
    Breakfast at Tiffanys
    Coyote Ugly

    Somthing not so obvious, if you like American Beauty type films, watch Happiness [1998]

    And if you listen to Mark Kermode on 5 Live, he'll tell you Pans Labyrinth. A must watch in the cinema.

    Jack and Sarah
    Sin city
    Stand by me

    Emmanuelle 2
    Nacho libre
    superman returns
    school of rock
    Hot Chick

    Memento is a great film and if you like that youll also like The Prestiege. Its by the same director and is another great film that really makes you think.


    any given sunday
    bull durham
    almost famous

    These are quite good but not sure if they are on DVD yet
    The Departed
    The Prestige
    In Pursuit of Happyness(Cinema only)
    and even though its a cartoon HappyFeet i thought was excellent.

    As mentioned before Hurricane, Leon, Heat are good films
    Training Day (most films with Denzel Washington are good except for the one with short British actor from who killed Roger Rabbit)

    These you've probably seen Shawshank Redemption, Lord of the Rings, Terminator (original 1), Matrix etc. Some others to recommend Lawrence of Arabia, Last Samurai, Minority Report, Black Hawk Down, LA Confidential, The English Patient, Manhunter, Nikita (French original)

    More light hearted The Sure Thing, Strictly Ballroom, Animal House, Notting Hill, Amelie, Chocolat. Taxi is great (the French original not US remake).

    If you're into some classic stuff how about the Thing, Dark Star (weird), Precinct 13 (original), Italian Job

    Monsters Inc -great cartoon

    The Prestige
    Blood Diamond

    And this week i shall be watching

    The Departed

    Really looking forward to watching these as they all get superb reviews. Loads of really good films out at the minute.

    Spoilt for choice. :thumbsup:

    Godfather Trilogy
    The Matrix
    V for Vendetta
    Saving Private Ryan
    Ong Bak


    And its owned my Amazon.

    You're bloody joking! No way, how's that for a bit of trivia:thumbsup:

    There are a hell of a lot of good recommendations above. My biggest objection though would be Nacho Libre. What a waste of time that is. Nothing against Jack Black but that is one bad film. Memento and Sin City are probably the greatest must see's on the list.

    What about Die Hard still a film I watch quite often Face Off watched Black Hawk Down for the first time the other day enjoyed that. Bevely Hills Cop and Team America very funny film from makers of South Park

    You've gotta watch Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy, followed by Dodgeball. Two of the funniest films in years ......:thumbsup:

    theres something about mary...

    yup anchorman...and Talladega nights is great too
