    I really love it in there. Stairs and little rooms everywhere.

    You can walk up to anybody working there and ask 'em about some obscure flick, anything, and they'll light up and start rattling off info and facts and who was involved, and oh they were just in here the other day signing DVDs (speaking of David Lynch, he was, last week or something), and oh did you know...about whatever it is. "Hey, which version of The Lathe of Heaven should I get?" - "Well, I like both. This one's more like yadda yadda, and that one's more like bippity boppity...."

    They're just so happy to work there and just so happy you are asking them about some movie. It's crazy.

    The Stuff is funny-horror about American consumerism. It is equal parts The Blob, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, your favorite zombie movie, your favorite funny Creepshow vignette, any 80s movie with either Tom Cruise or Andrew McCarthy, and the Airplane!/Naked Gun movies.

    Michael Moriarty (Law and Order) and Paul Sorvino (everything, incl. Goodfellas) and Garrett Morris (SNL) are all fudgin hilarious.

    The commercials in The Stuff about The Stuff are funny, too. In them, we see Abe Vigoda of all people, and the Where's the Beef? old lady who some of you may remember, who changes her line here to say, "Where's The Stuff?"

    Alligator - John Sayles wrote this late '70s Jaws clone. Robert Forster (Jackie Brown) is really funny in this one, and Robin Riker looks SLAMMIN. Saw it again the other day.

    Forget about Primeval and Rogue for a minute.

    Primer - realistic time machine paradox movie. I liked this one A LOT.

    Idaho Transfer - ecological time-travel horror movie with 2 or 3 hot!!! babes made by Peter fudgin Fonda (!) in 1973 and filmed in Craters of the Moon park.

    The Lathe of Heaven - 2 versions. Ursula K. Le Guin tale of dreams controlling reality, and it's also about space-alien hot dog vendors.

    Equinox - the inspiration for The Evil Dead, starring salesman Herb Tarlek from WKRP in Cincinatti. Spelled without the 'e' on the end.

    someone suggested Naked Lunch. I saw it the other day. It was definitely a Cronenberg film; now that I've seen it, I think it's obvious that Burroughs's writing has inspired every Cronenberg movie. Judgement reserved for this one. I dunno.

    I'll just try to avoid mentioning the ones already mentioned.

    Si-Fi:
    Sunshine
    Children of Men

    Office Space
    Burn After Reading
    The Big Lebowski

    Drama:

    Good Fellas
    The Departed

    Anime:
    Berserk (It's a show, but a must see!)
    Samurai X-Trust & Betrayal

    Princess Mononoke (You've prolly seen it, but it's a worth mention)

    Horror:
    The Shinning (Another you've most likely seen, but the best horror movie ever imo)
    I like most Stephen King adaptations.


    I usually keep myself updated on what the directors are doing such as:

    Coen Brothers
    Guillermo del Toro
    Martin Scorsese

    Etc. etc.



    Here's every Twin Peaks episode:

    Chrystal - Billy Bob Thorton is one that was missed by most.
    The Departed - Dameon and DeCaprio is a must see.

    I liked those really well.

    I do not know if you want to watch these, but I recently saw these over the weekend and they were very good.

    1. Doubt
    2. Changeling
    3. The curious life of Benjamin Button - kind of dragged out and long in parts that they could have left out, but still very interesting and great scenery if you like going back into the early 20th century.

    Sunshine was kinda neat, I watched it on pain-killers after some surgery

    Children of Men has the best continuous-shot battle scene ever!!!!

    For anime:

    Neon Genesis Evangelion.

    Saw an episode on Adult Swim a few years ago. Went out and rented all 26 episodes and both movies. It's kids doing battle inside towering "Evangelions" with giant, weird monsters called "Angels" that are attacking Earth. Each Angel is completely different from the one that came before. The Angels are what hooked me ...

    ...as well as the "fan service" in the first few episodes, for those that know what I mean.

    The end of the series was so disappointing that the creator/writer/director received death threats.

    So he made a movie to synopsize the series, and another to end the story arc and satisfy everyone. That movie is a paroxysm of the metaphysical and the uber-religious, and of desire, of young lust, and of a literal "neon genesis" -- not just giant robot kung-fu.

    More religious symbolism and literal treatment of every major religion than anything I've ever seen. Considering it's a Japanese-made cartoon, I was floored.

    I've seen all of Evangelion besides the remakes. I'm pretty sure they've done two of the four new movies so far. Hopefully they made Shinji a more likable character.

    been watching old favorites

    Excalibur has always floated around in my top 10 but now it's in my top 2 or 3. My favorite telling of the King Arthur legend in any book or movie. The Wagner music - and all the music - fits perfectly. I can't imagine anybody doing more with the role of Merlin than Nicol Williamson. I've seen it more than Star Wars. I don't think I can sit through any other movie as enjoyably as watching this one. Seen it 20 or 30 times.

    here is some of what Helen Mirren was wearing as the evil Morgana

    You know, I don't watch movies on DVD much anymore, but I watch TV series all the time. Every time I'm in the States I go to FYE and buy/trade in a whole bunch.

    I just finally finished all of Battlestar Galactica (new series). Absolutely loved it. If some of the two-part episodes could be considered movies (they are feature-length), they'd be in my favourite movies ever for sure.

    I'm hoping to find a few Red Dwarf seasons now, and if all goes well, MST3K.

    yeah, Battlactica was the schnizeroo and the razzamatazz. I liked the end, not just cuz it was finally over, either. I liked the whole thing with Starbuck. And they played the original TV theme song right when they were sailing the fleet into the sun.

    But Excalibur, fudge me runnin. I don't know how, maybe with some spell of all the green light reflected everywhere in the woods in this movie, and certainly the outfits she wore, but the way John Boorman photographed Helen Mirren, as Morgana, an evil witch chick in this particular movie, is like a laser-guided, chub-inducing heat ray aimed at my loins.

    You seem to be a big Cronenberg fan...Have you checked out any of Takashi Miikes' films?

    Audition, Ichi The Killer, Citizen Q, Gozu, Sukiyaki Western Django, Dead or Alive....

    Some strange, surreal, creepy, weird, artsy...Really ****ed up stuff...
