Downfall was awesome. The woman who played Goebbel's wife was one evil biatch. Ganz was excellent, as was the woman who played Eva Braun and the guy who played Speer. However, I thought Himmler's character was poorly portrayed. He wasn't icy and insensitive enough.

I'd say that of all the non-American WW2 films:

#1 - Downfall (Ger)
#2 - Come and See (Russian)
#3 - Stalingrad (Ger)

Ooft!!!

Heavy man!
Heavyyyyyy!

Most people I've spoken to that has seen that all say the same thing
"Why? Why did they make that. That was totally unnecessary".

It's well made and a good film I suppose.
But fuck a duck man... I'm all in favour of avoiding the 'Hollywood happy ending syndrome', but I have my limits.

Had to get that off my chest there.

@ frons
It's probably the best anti-drug movie ever made...without implicitly glorifying use.

Literally shows people descending into the self-destructive madness of addiction.

Yup... I'd go along with that.
I've certainly not come across any other film that manages to put a downer drug use to the extent that 'Requiem for a Dream' does.

LOTR just rocked. All of them. Star Wars sort of rocked.

I actually quite liked it.

Didn't see em. I guess my tastes must be lowbrow or something. I did see, for example, Attack of the Lesbian Vampire Girls. ;)

9. Amélie (2001)


The other half's favourite film. I've never seen it though. :lol: She says I wouldn't like it so I'm off the hook.

You have to see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. One of Jim Carey's best movies. He is so underrated as a dramatic actor

Downfall was a masterpiece. Bruno Ganz was about as close to Hitler as anybody is ever going to get.

I've been told Jim Carrey is very good. I never even heard of those movies, though. ;) Which is odd as I go to the cinema all the time, at least twice a month on average I guess.

Looking forward to Surrogate at the moment.

Apparently he was excellent as Andy Kaufman in Man On The Moon. Never seen it myself but Carrey won a Golden Globe for his perfomance and Kaufman's widow said that Carrey had nailed Andy's character so well that it was like being in the same room as him again.

all the good films have already been made long ago...last tango in paris was probably the last....the rest which follows is triviality, repetitiveness and mtv gen-x and peer pressure to think recent films are relevant and interesting to talk about. witness the acrobatics to describe district 9 as anything other than transient kitsch.
