I'm trying to add something new to my life. I'm going to be watching at least 2 movies on this "Moveary" Every Saturday. I would be great if you guys could help me fix this list. Could you help me find the mystery movies (I hate mystery movies) and if you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

Define mystery movies and why do you hate them? Like movies with a surprise ending? Or whodunit, detective stuff?

Lesser Known mystery movies (Detective Style) everyone should see:

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Brick
The Brothers Bloom
Chinatown (lesser known for our generation)
RadioLand Murders

I'd add right off the top of my head movies I think you might not have seen:

Fisher King
City of Lost Children
Delicatessen
My Favorite Year
Noises Off
Blade Runner
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Ferris Bueller's Day Off (if you haven't seen it)
Pandorum (little scattered, and initially underwhelming, but was surprised how often I thought of it later)
Arthur
Blazing Saddles
Young Frankenstein
Every Coen Brothers movie ever.
Adaptation
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
Pi
The Fountain
Lost Highway (really anything by Lynch, but it's an aquired taste)
Anything of Quentin Tarantino's you haven't seen yet
Anything of Martin Scorsese's you haven't seen yet
Moon
In Bruges
The Godfather movies.
Goodfellas

And I'm starting to reach, and I'm unsure what you've seen so I'll stop
!! Skip Eight Crazy Nights. It's just an enormous piece of shit, and I've sat through some shit. But then again I hated Scary Movie, and all it's spawn. It just seems so lazy. Although if you like that kinda humor see: Airplane! Know your roots.

I've been watching a lot of Korean films lately, they're always really gritty, violent, and awesome

Oldboy (or anything by Chan-Wook Park)
Thirst
The Chaser
A Bittersweet Life

Also I don't remember if it was on your list, but as far as detective movies go I'd definitely recommend Brick. It's a great neo-noir, and one of my favorite movies of all time.

About Books:
I actually have the Hitchhiker's Guide (bought it last summer), and I'll probably read it once I finish the Bourne Trilogy.

About Movies:
I personally own at least 200 movies on DVD, probably another 100 as burned copies, and another 100 at least on my external.
To Ben - Oldboy is part of a "vengeance trilogy". If you haven't seen them, I suggest watching "sympathy for mr vengeance" and "sympathy for lady vengeance".

About Movies:

Ive mentioned some of these multiple times before; but they werent (all) on your list so here we go again.
Sleuth (adaptation of a play, great acting from Jude Law and Michael Caine)
American History x
Primer
(great low-budget sci-fi psychological thriller drama something)
Thank you for Smoking (Great fun comedy, light entertainment with a very original story without lame jokes)
Everything Is Illuminated(heartwarming comedic drama)
Gone Baby Gone (neo-noir crime drama)
Sin City (part two is in the make, cant wait)
Man on Fire (Action with a great story)

I like to go through lists like this to find good movies

Yes I have, I've seen all of Chan-Wook Parks movies, he's an amazing director :P

Oldboy's just the best out of the trilogy IMO.

Ponyo, Princess Mononoke, Laputa: Castle in the Sky and Tales from Earthsea or something similar to that.

I like Studio Ghibli :D

These are just the movies i've seen; aside from Howl's moving castle, which you said you'd already seen.

I ran. I ran until my muscles burned, and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

@Ben - Yeah, I'm gonna agree with you on that. Oldboy is the best of that trilogy.

@Dan - Dude, don't forget Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro.

I don't have a power cord yet to use my tv and my ps3 at the same time, probably going over to a friends house to use his tv so I can buy it tonight.

I'm pretty excited. I don't know too many people with 360's so I haven't gotten to play it yet.

I myself am pretty fucked because I may not be doing the thing I want to be doing and Im definately not going back to school yet. I guess that means a lot of time to improve my art i dunno

Back to school, but I switched studies. Im now in the Premaster Philosophy programme (and finishing up my Bachelor International Business administration). I have only had a few classes (today was my second day) but I can tell allready that its a much better fit. The classes are about subjects that actually interest me and that make me want to know more about them. Besides that the classes are all a lot smaller (50 students instead of 200) which make the lectures much more interactive. So yeah, Im happy.

@Austinzombie

I am going to school again this year, but I have moved from po-dunk, tiny redneck town Jacksonville, North Carolina, to very large Jacksonville, Florida.

Haha, I moved from Jacksonville to Jacksonville. Trust me, I've heard it before.

As such, I'm also going to a much, much nicer school this year. I'm now attending the Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, which is in the top 10 best public schools in the entire country and has won tons of awards for its arts programs. I'm going in for orchestra (I play violin), which is very nice. I wanted to audition for visual arts as well but I couldn't meet the proper date for that. Shame; I would have rather gone in for visual arts.

So, I was bored in school today so I started my entry for the calender contest, it's okay, though I probably won't win anything. Also, my school is doing a competition to make a homecoming shirt, I started my design and everybody thinks I'm gonna win but it's anyone's game.
I should probably ink the bagillion sketches that I have.

ALSO: In NG news I am restarting Comic Strip of the Week, since it failed last time I made some tweaks to everything in my head and it is gonna be better than ever! (Well the ONE that I made that is)

I had an awesome idea to make a flash based comic where if you look at it it all looks completely normal and readable - but if you click each frame it comes to life and plays out the scene as if you were watching the comic come to life as an actual cartoon - and then it refreezes once that pane is done playing. Kind of like a dynamic comic. Waddaya guys think? I mean I'm too busy to do it these days but I still think it;s a great concept...

Ive seen that kind of thing before, there was a whole slew of those types of things around 2003-2006 on NG. they were a little more animation based or art based, but trying to get an equal balance of both could be interesting.
The only thing that makes it a bit redundant in a way is that the point of the comic is a visual progression of static images in cells, having the cells be an animation will either make reading the thing very confusing for those who jump ahead in cells without finishing the animation, or sort of pointless since the point of the comic is to move the story forward with static cells, otherwise it might as well just be an animation. Maybe having the animation of each cell not be completely necessary, but more used as an enhancement or supplement to the static image. So instead of say, having lines to show a guy swinging his sword, the cell shows him doing the swing, and the next one shows the contact. That way for those who don't want to sit through the animation can still progress like a normal comic, while those with more time and get a more fluid experience.

yeah that would be the general idea - if you don't click anything it's just like any other comic - ity's only when you click on it that stuff happens - cuz I knmow there have been times where I look at a pane and IU'm like " I really with that would animate out so I could get the full experience of it"

and yeah itd be time consuming but I dunno - fun concept.

Hey, y'all! Thought I'd say hi, I've been out of commission while my computer was playing up.

To top it off, I've lost all the progress on a few pics I was doing and lost the whole thing - these were being done for other people, so.. gargh. How do you guys react to something like that?
