I don´t recall seeing a movie club in the C&C in the last year or so, and the search bar didn´t turn up any results, so here we go.

Ok, so this, if all goes well, will be a club to talk about your favorite movies. Sure, you can put your favorite movies on your profile, but no-one really looks at that, and you can´t comment anything about them.

So, here we´ll be talking about what your favourite movies are, or about new movies in the cinema. People can exchange opinions as to which new movies to watch, and which not to watch etc...

So come on now, the more the merrier. Just post a few of your favourite movies and you´re in.

Some of my favourites in no particular order are;
Akira
Leon
Saving Private Ryan
A Clockwork Orange
Hot Fuzz
Inside Man
The Butterfly effect
Conan
Pretty much any Adam Sandler movie

And some of the movies i really want to see are;
Indiana jones and the Kingdom of the crystal skull
National Treasure 2
21
Jumper
Run fatboy run

Sounds like a good idea to me.

Sure, you can put your favorite movies on your profile, but no-one really looks at that, and you can´t comment anything about them.

They don't even show up in your profile now, unlike before the redesign where it had the favourite bands/movies section at the bottom of your profile window. :/

So come on now, the more the merrier. Just post a few of your favourite movies and you´re in.

All three Bourne films - first was my favourite. Those films blew me away. Also, I loved The Matrix (as did most people, in spite of the sequels), and some weirder stuff like Pan's Labyrinth.

I like quite a lot of war movies as well, and a fair few Clint Eastwood films. That guy is a total badass.

In summary, I'd like to join.

Well, they do show up on your profile, but you have to press some really small ´favourites´ button at the top of your profile that no-one bothers pressing, so it´s as if they wern´t there now. http://nevr.newgrounds.com/favorites/

All three Bourne films - first was my favourite. Those films blew me away. Also, I loved The Matrix (as did most people, in spite of the sequels), and some weirder stuff like Pan's Labyrinth.

I think i´ve seen the first 2 Bourne movies. They were good, and Matt Damon is a good actor, and can play nearlly any type of role, and he played this role great. There were some really cool stunts in those movies aswell. I didn´t used to like the Matrix when it first came out, mainly because of the over hype, but i watched it again recently and enjoyed it more.
Pan´s Labyrinth was really good, i recommend it to anyone who hasn´t seen it.

I like quite a lot of war movies as well, and a fair few Clint Eastwood films. That guy is a total badass.

Meh, i´m not a big Clint fan, but i guess he has some good movies from over the years.

In summary, I'd like to join.

Welcome aboard.

Yeah, I know you have to click 'view all favourites' or something, but I just meant it's lame that they don't have them on the main page of your profile now.

I think i´ve seen the first 2 Bourne movies. They were good, and Matt Damon is a good actor, and can play nearlly any type of role, and he played this role great.

Yeah, I think he was perceived as a bit of a nerd before doing the Bourne films, but he fitted the role really well I thought.

There were some really cool stunts in those movies aswell. I didn´t used to like the Matrix when it first came out, mainly because of the over hype, but i watched it again recently and enjoyed it more.

Hype is lame, because the more hyped a movie is, the more disappointed you are when you finally see it. I felt that way about 300... the trailers looked great, but the actual movie wasn't all it was hyped up to be. Several of the actors played unconvincing roles at best, and parts of the dialogue were just embarrassing.

Pan´s Labyrinth was really good, i recommend it to anyone who hasn´t seen it.

Yeah, great film. Found it very weird at first, but watching it the second time I liked it a lot more.

I like quite a lot of war movies as well, and a fair few Clint Eastwood films. That guy is a total badass.
Meh, i´m not a big Clint fan, but i guess he has some good movies from over the years.

I never used to be, and I still wouldn't call myself a massive Eastwood fan, but I like several of his movies, for example, High Plains Drifter and Heartbreak Ridge to name a few.

I thought that movie deserved much better reviews than it got. It was really good, as one should expect from Satoshi Kon.

And as big a film enthusiast as I am, I still haven't seen the Unusual Suspects. Shame on me. I would have, but I know the ending already (who doesn't?).

Also, I didn't care much for From Dusk 'Till Dawn.

all great films. You're the first person I've seen mention the Lives of Others. That was a very good movie. Actually, I'd give it 5 out of 5 stars. Just to make sure, you are talking about the German film, das Leben der Anderen, right?

The man who played the main character in that was in another film that was pretty good called Black Book (Zwartboek). It kind of drags on and is a bit soap opera-ish, but it's still good. What's surprising is that Paul Verhoven made it. I wouldn't expect a good, serious film from someone like him. As far as I've seen, his movies are usually either crap (Hollow Man, Showgirls, Flesh + Blood) or just fun popcorn movie types not to be taken seriously (Robocop, Total Recall).

and finally, Kong fu hustle

That one kicked ass. I have it on tape.

I noticed that everybody seems to love no Coountry For Old Men (I do too) but what about other Coen brothers films? Millers Crossing was amazing. I'd say it's the best film they've made so far. And Fargo, Raising Arizona, and O Brother Where Art Thou were all great as well. Blood Simple was quite good, too.

The Beach
The Butterfly Effect
Dogma
Donnie Darko
Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (UNDER-FUCKING-RATED)
Clerks
Clerks II
Hot Fuzz
Mallrats
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Pirates of the Carribean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (C'mon that movie was fun!)

I'm also a fan of Hayao Miyazaki. I really enjoyed "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind", "Laputa: Castle in the Sky" and "Kiki's Delivery Service". I havn't yet seen "Princess Mononoke", "Spirited Away" or "Howl's Moving Castle".

Some other movies I plan to see are Silence of the Lambs, A Clockwork Orange, No Country for Old Men, and Pan's Labyrinth.

He's great. I've seen a lot of his films. I loved them all so far. Well, I like Howl's Moving Castle as a friend..

Yes, do get on that.

Yeah, I had a feeling that movie wasn't that great. But seeing Princess Mononoke in your favourite's list just reminded me of him, is that one really better than the others? I mean, that was the only one of his films in your favourites...

Yeah, well I think I'll put Castle in the Sky and spirited Away in there after I seem them a couple more times. I already own Spirited Away, but I don't own Castle in the Sky, which of course, I should. I might even put Nausicaa on the list. I've only seen it once and I can't remember it that well any more.

But yes, I'd say Princess Mononoke is his best movie out of what I've seen, which include Nausicaa, Castle in the Sky, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Howl's Moving Castle.

So you havn't seen Kiki's Delivery Service? Oh well. And Nausicaa is better than Castle in the Sky IMO. Although Castle in the Sky is great. Those robots were fucking cool.

I didn't really like Delivery Service espically in comparison to Flying Castle and Spirited away.

I forgot a classic:

Forest Gump

and just finished this one:

Across the Universe. I didn't grow up in the 60's so I wasn't too familiar with the history and celebs. It was one big gooey love story wraped up in tons of classic Beatles songs. Got bored in a few parts but it was really trippy in a few too. Was good overall.

You have to post some of your favourite films first, come on dude.

For future reference, don't bother just posting in new clubs saying something like 'Cool I'm in if this club survives', just fulfill the requirements for joining and start posting, and you'll be helping it to survive.

Looks to me like this club is doing fairly well ATM anyway.

Get the Alien Quadrilogy box set. It's dirt cheap, has theatrical and directors cut/extended editions/alternate cut of all 4 films, and fuck tons of extras.

I watched Aliens to death about a year and a half ago, and was getting to the stage of knowing the script by heart, but I got tired of it. Aliens just has the awesome for me. Jurassic Park has the awesome AND the nostalgia.

On the topic of shit to get and watch, Even Dwarfs Started Small (saw a few wee clips and decided it's the best idea for a movie ever).
