on the subject of dreaming

The classic; alice in wonderland :D

Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is one of my all time favourites ^^

Just thought about the cartoon Dr. Snuggles. Who remembers this cartoon? Although not having a lot of episodes it always stuck to me as one of the favourite cartoons to watch when I was little. Either inspired by amazing dreams or .. drugs. lach1

Ahahah, sneaky, sneaky mods! :D
I opened this thread yesterday and it was only Blenderman's first post in it. Then i refresh it today and 7 pages?? And Blenderman's post on 7th page? whatsthat eek2
Good one kiekeboe

To add some relevance to my post... Recently i watched Let Me In (2010) and shortly thereafter Let the right one in (2008) and fell in love with them. The former is an american version of it, but almost copied from the latter, which is the original, swedish version. So both are very similar, in content as in quality. They're made after a swedish book "Let the right one in" by John Ajvide Lindqvist (yea, i googled his name, sheesh) which of course i had to read as well as the movies inevitably omit some contents of the book.
I hesitate to elaborate on the plot, since it's very nonstereotipical. I think it's even classified as horror, which is utter bollocks.
An amazing film anyhow, well worth the watch. If you're feeling adventurous, try the 2008 swedish version, or if you prefer familiar touch of hollywood, give the 2010 film a go. Either way, you're not missing a huge deal from the alternative.

I just saw Donnie Darko for the second time. Usually I don't like to see movies more than once, but this one was so good, and I didn't quite understand it the first time.

I loved the movie


I liked Donnie Darko so much too. It's one of my favorites but I believe watching it without reading Cellar Door <http://www.ruinedeye.com/cd/> doesn't actually leave you with full understanding. After thinking about the symbols there, I started to like it more.

I've seen it for a long time ago. S. Darko is a total different movie than Donnie Darko. This one was just weird and slow. Waste of time.
I totally agree with you.


Just because all the people said that S. Darko sucks, I didn't watch it, I didn't want to be dissapointed. I don't know what TheS means by "total different movie" (maybe it is a way to say how much the movie suks) but as far as I know, S. Darko is actually connected to Donnie arko because S. Darko sees her brother or something like that.


I also like Into the Wild too much, maybe because it was based on a true story or maybe because I'm imressed by Christopher's (or should I call him Alexander?) strong stand against society.
+ Big Fish would be fun to watch too though some people say it doesn't seem good because it is not realistic, but it is already Tim Burton's movie smile

Yeah that's one of my favourites. Chris was such a special man, his view of the world so different from anyone else's. I really dislike the people seeing his way of thinking as 'suicidal' or negative in any way, just because it differs so strongly from the value's that his and our communities are set about.
Anyway it's Chris, and not Alexander... call it by it's right name remember? wink5

Hmm, yes maybe..
But still, I think he would want us to call him "Alexander Supertramp". Maybe? :D Because it was his choice to be called like that smile but you are right as well because his real name is Christopher ^^

I recommend Colossus, the Forbin project.
It is really a great movie, that has been underestimated. It doesn't have anything to do with dreams, it's about a computer trying to take over the world. HAL 9000 is scary but Colossus is terrifying.

@Clous: I almost get the idea you never saw the ending of the movie... you might want to watch it again ^^
