Children of Men (no spoilers)

Has anyone seen this yet? i saw it the other day and i gotta say it's the most gruesome, grisly, depressing movie that you will ever want to see twice. It was absolutely incredible, everything about this movie was superb, and delivers a haunting message. The cinematography was fantastic. The story was moving. The pase was quick. The action was abundant. This is a masterpiece, and easily the best movie of 2006. You'll laugh, you'll cry (proverbially), and you'll hope that this grim look at what could be is never a reality. A++++++++ for Children of Men

WARNING: the following contains not much sense... (no spoilers unless you had no idea what the movie was about)
On a funny note, as we were walking out of the theater, we saw why the world was a complete mess in that movie. Some SKATOR kids were yelling, swearing, and acting SUPER COOL AWESOME TOTALLY WICKED SICK!... pricks, i hate those kids, and i thanked god they didnt come mouthing off to us, cuz we woulda had to kick all theyre asses. The world was f***ked because THEY were the ones that were adults by that time . Also, everyone was infertile in that movie because... "HEY! can you do a 900?" "I sure can! <falls and breaks his nuts> OUCH!... one!... <breaks nuts again> OUCH!... two!..." lach2 i rule!

But seriously go see children of men, preferably with a group of people that won't talk during the movie.

Some Great ones...Waking Life (I think anyone on this site can appreciate it)

Recently I saw Donnie Darko ..and then continued to watch about 10 times including the Directors Cut twice and the Commentary, and it is truly an amazing piece of work.

Just last night I watched A Scanner Darkly, mainly because it was by Richard Linklater and I had heard it was good, I wasn't dissapointed another truly artful and creative of work, although not as good as the two I listed above.

I saw that recently. I thought it was pretty good, but maybe not quite as good as the critics were declaring. It felt a bit hollow in places, not quite fleshed-out enough, and overall too short. But still, it was a very interesting piece of work.

Has anyone here seen Pan's Labyrinth yet? It's sort of a dark fantasy from Spain, very good, you guys should check it out.

Was A Scanner Darkly really good? It didn't seem to get much public popularity, but neither did Waking Life or Donnie Darko I suppose. Is it done by the same people as Waking Life (since the animation is similar and all)? It's got Keanu Reaves right? Not a very good sign...Oh well, I'll have to check it out, it did look interesting.

A scanner Darkly was good. A bit talky, but good dialog. The rotoscoping was very cool, but the movie was more than a vehicle for it. In the end you feel very touched when everything comes together.

What did you think of the Divci code? It kind of blew my mind. It seems like a good possiblty it could be true. I never noticed the "Last supper" before, but now it looks very obvious.

I want to check it out, looks good the visuals looking stunning. I have to make plans soon, the problem is a decent show time

Personally I liked A Scanner Darkly, not just because of how it was made, although that was a plus. But I'm a fan of Philip K. Dick, and i believe this movie came from a book that he wrote. I never read anything from Philip, but I'm a fan of most tales that turn into movies. Most are future paranoia mind f*cks, that actually make you think. When the movie first released it wasn't in main theaters or anything. I saw it where they play independent films, I don't know if this is consider an independent movie. But it wasn't advertise as much as it is for dvd.

I know another Die Hard is coming out, and Zodiac looks like a good movie. Just wanted to add that in for thoughts

Grindhouse was great

Though "Death Proof" wasn't Tarentino's best

I actually liked planet terror better

and Nicholas Cage as Fu Manchu!

I finally watched The Science of Sleep. A bit weird but pretty entertaining. Before I saw it I thought it was a French film, but they speak both English and French in the movie (mostly English). I really liked the way the protagonist's dreams and waking life were intertwined and think it's a movie most of the dreamers here could enjoy for that same reason. It's also a weird love story and rated R, FYI.

Has anyone else seen it?

V for Vendetta, anyone? I loved how a Hollywood Blockbuster could actually have a good plot and a meaningful message about power and mass propagandizing. V's pirate speech at the end was breathtaking.

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason, and plot,
I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

Ok, so i saw this film called Sublime.

Easily one of my favorites

Dreaming is a major theme in that movie, very trippy psychological movie

however, technically it IS a horror film, and i would not recommend it to the squeamish
