City of God is a good movie for people who like real movies. Enter the Dragon of course, if you haven't seen it you need to watch it. As for recent movies I have no idea haha

OK so I thought my top 10 movies of all time were pretty much set in stone, but having recently seen OldBoy (2003) I need to revise my list.

Absolutely fantastic film. Lead me to get 'I'm a cyborg but that's ok' by the same guy, which was also rather brilliant if you like completely mental things
Charlie (Barcelona) 7 years ago
Hmm looks interesting. Ill make a mental note to watch it on a rainy day

Anyone who hasn't seen Oldboy is in for quite a surprise! 1000% recommended

I saw funny people last friday. It was........................Funny. Haha I loved it. I couldn't get over adam sandlers rendition of Real Love. This movie will fit snuggly in my dvd collection; in between Superbad and Knocked Up

Can't wait till the rest of the world gets it - saw apatow on Daily Show plugging it - looks good
Charlie (Barcelona) 7 years ago
Oh, I didn't know the movie was only out in the states. Good thing I didn't ruin it for anyone by saying that sandler dies at the end or something

Apatow is a comedy genius, its all about good, funny dialogue with him. Doesn't worry about changing the camera angles too much so the actors can improvise easily, same with knocked up. I think its pretty cool how he's got his wife and kids in many of his movies, but his kids arent allowed to watch the movies they're in yet, he's making a fifteen minute kid-friendly version of funny people!

Well, just seen, a above avg film for me. Interesting plot based on a true story and very captivating, although the ending is a little awkward for me.

Other great films include The Departed, The Bourne Trilogy (absolutely my fave), Kill Bill 1 and 2.

Matt (Footytube Staff) 7 years ago
I am confused have you just seen a film called 'a above avg film for me' or a film called ', ' which was above average?

Your other recommendations are good, The Departed has maybe the best cast ever put together. The Bourne films are good and set the tone for the new Bond films (if Casino Royale had just a bit less product placement it would be one of the best action films out there).

Kill Bill 1 and 2 has me a little conflicted I do like Tarantino dialogue and music in his films are always captivating. Many of the plots and scenes he uses are taken wholesale from other films . Does this make them worse? Still looking forward to Inglorious Bastards

Right below are my recommendations for best worst movies. Movies that are so bad/super cheesy that they actually end up being good entertainment.

Crank 2: High Voltage.
Yeah I said it, now the first Crank was good, interesting concept and nice action scenes. A sequel looked unlikely due to the *SPOLIER ALERT* main character plummeting to his death at the end of the film *SPOILER END*. Chev Chelios retuns in the sequel and a hyperactive, bizarre, gross and not least very funny (unintentional?) film is the end result. I give it 8/10 on the bad film nothing else to watch scale.

Snakes on a Plane.
Samuel L Jackson is cool there is no getting away from that you could put the dude in an episode of Emmerdale Farm and it would be unmissable. Put him in a film with a plot written by an eight year old with a snake fetish and you get a quotable classic. Not wanting to spoil the plot for you it's about some err snakes on a plane thats about it. 7.5/10 on the cheese o' meter.

Shoot em' Up.
My personal fave, why you ask? Well its basically just a string of the most imaginative action set pieces that you will ever see. It also has three of the best actors around today in Paul Giamatti (Sideways,American Splendor,Duplicity), Clive Owen (Children of Men,Inside Man,Sin City) and the stunning Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Reloaded,Irréversible,Under Suspicion). I give it 10/10 action fest no brain rating.

Crank 2 was awesome. Kinda weird, but awesome

The Hurt Locker. A great movie, really intense. Its about a bomb unit in Iraq. Super intense, and well made. I was a bit iffy on the fact that it was filmed in 16mm film instead of HD or anything, but it was spectacular. Really made me feel as if I was there in the action. The guy who played the main character was also an excellent actor. I'm not sure how widely distributed it is as its an independent film, but I highly recommend it!

I heard Bruno was like 80 minutes of gay porno, but Harry Potter was sick, and Emma Watson was super hot in it
Adamaus (Manchester United) 7 years ago
Bruno was very awkard, funny but only gay people would go see it 2 times.

I'm about to go see harry potter, should be good, ill give you rating when I get back.

Hopfully like tranformers 2 they have slow mo's but this time of emma watson

I saw Bruno. I thought it was a funny movie. I don't why some people are hating on it....

I didn't think it was better than Borat though, still funny. I'd recommend it to anyone.
