Here's a rundown of the movies I totally enjoy, and are probably among my favorites of all-time. Give me some help in pin-pointing some movies I'll probably want to put in my queue. I appreciate it. They don't have to be along the same lines, these are just movies I enjoy quite a bit so you get my viewing tastes.

Pulp Fiction
Memento
Donnie Darko
Requiem for a Dream
Amores Perros
Pi
Boondock Saints
The Royal Tennenbaums
Office Space
Happy Gilmore
Raising Arizona
The Outlaw Josey Wales
3:10 to Yuma
The Bourne Series


I really wouldn't mind checking out some good older westerns.

All suggestions are welcome.

This is my number 1 movie of all time.
Wes Anderson can do no wrong.

You've got a great list there.. Good to see someone taking an interest in Pi.

I don't know why but the movie 'Orgazmo' just popped in my head. That was a very funny movie.

You know, everytime you mention a movie, it is one I absolutely love. We need to compare DVD collections. :thumb:

This is my lowbrow list.

toxic avenger (any of them really.)

Doom Generation (shows lots of Rose Mcgowan goods)

I'm sure you would have seen Sin City.

Evil Dead 2

Bubba ho-tep

Near Dark-kind of a nomad/vampire/western kind of movie.

Dead Alive

Reanimator

He was a quiet man (Christian Slater and the hot chick from the girl next door.) Kind of a Falling Down kind of movie.

Last House on the left

The Last man on Earth (I am legend that was more true to the book and w/ Vincent Price.)

Over the Edge (Matt Dylan teen rebellion flick from the late 70's early 80's)

Escape from NY

Eraserhead

Come to think of it....I barely own anything of intelligence....hmmmmm

The best part about Netflix is that they have a large variety of foreign films. If you haven't seen City of God or Old Boy, give them a shot.

We recently just recieved The Last House on the Left. My uncle recommended it. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. I could only stomach 40 minutes.

Good, but I preferred Wyatt Earp.I disagree, but that was very good too.

Kilmer's Doc Holiday made Tombstone for me. I'm not a fan of his, but damn... that was the performance of his life.

If you havent already seen it, put the first season of Deadwood in your queue. If you like westerns, you'll be hooked.

I recommended this movie to a buddy of mine yesterday.
That lion speech that Walkin gives in the bathroom is priceless.

I guess what I meant to say Huffman was the movie was absolute garbage. There was a cutscene like, every 2 minutes.

I guess the old retro boobs and muff was kinda' cool.

If you want a good older western, try "The Wild Bunch" if you haven't seen it before. It's ultra-violent.

Another diamond in the rough is "Swimming with Sharks". It's my favorite Kevin Spacey performance. It's about a movie producer (Spacey) and how badly he treats his assistant (Frank Whaley). Hi-jinks ensue and it has a great twist ending.

I never knew the title until I read that. I LOVED that movie.
Now that I know what it is - adding to deepdiscount basket.
Thanks

Attaboy!

But yeah the movie is terrible. But it is a apart of Wes Cravens "Legacy of Brutality."

The first Ginger Snaps movie. It's about 2 teenage sisters and one gets bitten by a werewolf and they use the werewolf as a metaphor for a girl "coming into her womanhood." very campy, very good werewolves and very funny/clever.

The sequels....meh!
