You ought to see Stalker as well. If you like art, Andrey Rublyov is more than worthwhile, one of my top three, and if you are interested in WWII, Ivan's Childhood shouldn't be missed. If you haven't noticed by now, I'm a huge fan of Tarkovsky. I even bought Bjork's Volta to hear "Dull Flame of Desire", (YouTube - Dull Flame Of Desire by Björk , with Antony Hegarty) the lyrics of which are taken from Tyuchev's poem that was used in Stalker.

My other favorite directors are Dreyer, Kurosawa, and Renoir among others.

PS, loved God's Little Acre, too. Steamy stuff with Michael Landon as a teenaged albino.

How about the Blues Brothers to add to the list?

You have got to lave Jake and Elwood.

Was a "Big Blue " mentioned ? Maybe not marked by great performances but such a beautiful picture.

Having just seen Avatar in 3-D I have to vote for it.
Raises the bar substantially for the genre.


9.75 / 10, getting seating towards the centre of the theatre is semi critical

Those two guys have less to do with blues music than anyone I can think of.

I too saw Avatar in 3D, but it's in the wrong thread - it belongs over under "The Worst Movies Ever Made".

Whilst the 3D effect is stunning, the rest of the film (plot, characterisation, acting, editing etc) was garbage. It was too long, too facile and too much like watching Pocahontas with blue people, or Fern Gully with gunships.

2 stars. One star for the visuals, one star for the scene with a mech jumping from an exploding gunship. The rest of the film attracts no stars at all.

Hate to say it but the English dont watch it because its not funny to them. I watched this with a room full of Germans and just didnt get it?
