  1. Help thesinner pick movies to rent thread


    I'm an avid movie-renter, but I'm not the best at 'keeping up with the times'

    If you've seen any good movies lately, please post the title, genre, and comments. If it sounds good, I will rent it. And if I rent it and it totally sucks, I will leave you angry PM's about I didn't like it.

  2. What Genre(s) are you most interested in?

    For instance, in the category of Transexual Anal, I'd recommend "Ram it up my Shemale Ass" as a bit lacking in plot, character development and set design but excellent for well choreographed action with dramatic endings.

    Not my thing, but I'm a Libertarian, live and let live I say.

  3. Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.

  4. Do you mean non block busters or any movie in general (like as known as V for Vendetta or lesser known ones?)

  5. Id say The Incredibles (awsome animated movie that you and the GF would like an equal amount) Friday Night Lights, The Warriors, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, Blade, Hostel. Boondock Saints, Seabiscuit. Note: Leaving out movies that Im assuming you already saw.

    To be honest, despite all the crazy perverted crap I say, I don't really like pornos.

    I like Comedies Dirty Work, Screwed, Strange Brew, Grandma's Boy, Clerks, Thank You for Smoking.

    I really enjoy movies with thought-provoking plots like Se7en, Bicentenial Man, The Butterfly Effect (yeah, I liked that one). I saw Pan's Labyrinth the other week, that was a pretty good one.

    Then there's movies about gangs/mobs like Lock Stock and 2 smoking barrels, Snatch, The Departed, Scarface, Boondock Saints, The Road to Perdition.

  7. Thanks for the Joker reps, Sinner.

    The best Gang/mob/crime movies,IMO (one of my favorite genres) are, in no particular order

    Heat
    Ronin
    Leon aka The Professional
    The Usual Suspects
    Reservoir Dogs

    I'll think of some others in this and other categories.

    Check out potentials at The Internet Movie Database (IMDb)

    They could be big or small productions, just basically something that has come out to video within the past few months which could be perceived as 'good'.

  9. Movies that I have reseen lately and are thought provoking for me, off the top of my head

    American Beauty
    American Psycho
    The Machinist
    Harsh Times
    Equilibrium
    (must be locked into a Christian Bale mindset , at the moment)
    Angel Heart

    Just weird - Wild at Heart

    For the Visuals and the smooth sexiness of the French language - The Brotherhood of the Wolf, aka Pacte Des Loupes, the first half especially.

    Creep Show - the extended version of Event Horizon

    Photo essay, thought provoking War Film - The Thin Red Line.

  11. Try Shaun of the dead - hilarious.

  12. I have to say that "28 weeks Later", should be soon if not now out on DVD, got critical and popular acclaim but personally speaking, the plot was good but I could'nt accept the tactical procedures employed by the perimeter personnel and the fleeing soldier, that ran bad counter to my SERE experience.

  13. Crude, Rude and funny as hell at times - Jackass 2, the unedited version. Much Raunchier than the first one.

    I'm shameless and untwitchable, but even I balked at the Horse **** Milking/Drink and Throw Scene, just ****ing nasty.

  14. Was Borat Any Good? It seemed like it was HUUGE for a little while, but then died down kinda quickly. I just don't want to end up watching another movie like Napoleon Dynamite. Gosh, that movie sucked (no pun intended).

  15. The Prestige of your in the mood for a well done movie, great acting, and an awsome plot line/twists. Plus Christian Bale is the man so ya know.. Highly reccommended.

    Goodfellas and Casino for mob movies (if you havent some how seen them already) ~ not recent but for the mob listing.

    Actually, Borat was funny (it was so popular I assumed I'd hate it).

    Yeah, it was that sort of popularity that's kept me away. Perhaps that will be one to put on the list of films to rent.

  18. Thought-provoking - Solaris - It's slow and not action-packed but full of deep existential ideas (go with the Soderbourgh/Clooney version)
    -Stalker - (Russian) very slow but an interesting allegory

    Gangster - Donnie Brasco, Blow, Carlito's Way (this one's so-so as I recall)

    weird movies - Mulholland drive, blue velvet, fear and loathing in Las Vegas

    Thrillers - try Hitchcock - my favs - Rear Window, Rope, North-by-Northwest.

  19. Ive seen just about every popular movie since 95 and almost every movie that Movie Gallery carried from july 01- 06. Than I kind of got bored . I know how to spot a good movie.

  29. Ever see "Being John Malcavich". I probally spelled it wrong but it is a good movie. I rent movies all the time, weekly really. I used to me a member of netflix till credit card debt caught up. I rented "Pride" last week. It was ok, but not great, a typical for that type of movie except that it was set in the 1970's.

  30. Gangster movies I've watched recently (some of them for the umpteenth time) I really liked:

    King of New York (Walken)
    Bad Liutenant (Keitel)
    Casino
    Good Fellas


    For a thinking movie I thought A Scanner Darkly was awesome. Then again I like PKD. Bladerunner is a classic.

    A really different movie I saw recently was The Fountain. If I had to describe it, I'd say it's like an impressionist painting except as a movie. Like, it's not supposed to be realistic and have a plot that makes perfect sense; it's just supposed to give you the impression of the themes. So if you go in knowing it isn't going to make sense and just taking it in like you'd admire a painting, it's really good. If you are expecting a cohesive, understandable plot, you'll hate it.

    I have been thinking about renting "The Fountain" but everytime I pick it up and read the back I put it back down because it just looks like something that will put me to sleep...

  32. Oh, just remembered... another one for a thinker has to be Donnie Darko. Talk about weird and entertaining.

  33. JFK was awesome. im sure you`ve already seen it tho.

    I went to Blockbuster today, originally thinking about renting American Beauty, but it was out. I decided to take nobody's advice and rent The 25th Hour because Edward Norton has yet to let me down.

    I think I saw it, but I don't really remember it. Ed Norton is definitely a good actor though. I like all his movies.

  36. Shooter
    The Messengers
    Taledega Nights
    Clock work orange
    Warriors
    Four Brothers

  37. 23 looks like a good pyschologal thriller..along the lines of butterfly effect and the machinist.
