Posted:like most other threads on HoP, this has probly been asked before, but i didnt see it on the first page of social chat so therefore its outdated tongue

one of mine would have to be Donnie Darko.. i think anemone would agree with me if he ever reads this..
another is Waking Life..

i love those kinds of movies, where you just sit and discuss the meaning of it for an hour and a half after its over..wow

reactions??

Posted:yannicus: i agree books are better.. i love watching a movie and then reading the book cuz the book is always better, and that way you wont be dissapointed by the movie if you read the book first.. for example. LOTR, trainspotting, the beach (awesome book btw), im addicted to Dark Tower series by STephen King... anyone? i just hope they dont make movies out of it cuz that would ruin it i think.. although LOTR wasnt that bad as movie..

anyone see cube and hypercube.. hahah, cooooooooolll

ok ok now then mister Stickmansoapbox cube was good smile but Hypercube frown. now I like crap films the are very entertaining take "Tango and cash" or for example terrible terrible film but very entertaining nevertheless ubbrollsmile but hypercube just pushed me over the edge it was so so so bad on so many levels frown.


I have an interesting fact about cube confused

99.99999999% of men who watch it think it is good and increasing
and
99.99999999% of women who watch it think it is the biggest pile of dog poo! ever
ubbloco

now explain that one


before i met those lot i thought they'd be a bunch of dreadlocked hippies that smoked, set things on fire ,and drank a lot of tea but then when i met them....oh wait (PyroWill)

Posted:Ok now then favourite film of all time I would have to say confused

One flew Over the cuckoos Nest ubblove

Jack Nicholson best performance I think you all have to agree smile makes me cry so much every time I watch it which I have done several million times now. biggrin

Best film I saw within the last 2 years that would have to be K-pax. Think this is one of the only films that actually does the book justice it is just like getting the story form a different perspective just adds to the overall enjoyment. which was nice ubbidea

Saw Moulin Rouge last night. I want to live in an elephant.

Trainspotting. (all so terribly true. I have been to that toilet!)

Caberet

I love sci fi, but I have yet to see the cube, though I reckon I'd like it but my bloke wouldn't.

Mostly I see a film when it comes on TV. Don't go to the pictures much. In fact the last time was the Matrix and I was semiconcious through out, waste of money. Should have been Trainspotting really. biggrin
