    Great/Noteable Moving Pictures~

    PLEASE OBSTAIN FROM POSTING STUPID CORNY NON-SENSE

    Such as "huhuh,Remember that part in American Pie,huhuh"...


    Big box office releases are really not worth recommending,
    unless exceptional ,
    or particular to the interests of the group...
    Reviewing "The Island" and "Batman Begins" is what film critics and newspapers are for...

    The purpose of this thread is to bring light to forgotten and/or Lesser-known movies..

    Don't go see "The Holy Girl".

    Unless you're a fan of Van Sant's "Elephant" and the other two movies he made with the same style ("Last Days", "Gerry"), you'll be VERY fucking annoyed.

    "Crazy"

    -Heddy Honigmann

    Dutch Language/ English Subtitles

    CRAZY is a film about the reminiscences of several Dutch UN soldiers about various battlefields were they served; memories that are inextricably bound up with one special song that brought solace far from home. Starting with the very first UN mission to Korea (1950), the film takes us on a journey to the Lebanon, Cambodia, Rwanda and former-Yugoslavia - to end up with the Fall of Srebrenica in 1995. Using home videos and photos, moving and also gruesome archive footage, the soldiers tell their moving stories about responsibility, consternation, fear, love, total impotence and death.
    CRAZY is a very personal journey through the world of Dutch UN veterans through music.


    Excellent movie


    Web Site from the Production Group

    This film is quite difficult to obtain,
    You'll likely have to contact the production group to recieve a direct copy.

    But if you have the SUNDANCE CHANNEL, (101 in New York City)
    it will air on Monday, August 8th at 4:15 EST

    This movie is as real as it gets.

    Bugged out and ironic story of an organized con-artist group that sold fake insurance , banked the profits in Swiss accounts and left New York when the FBI caught up to the scheme.
    The majority of the film takes place in Cambodia and features the country as one of the stars itself.
    The vibe of the country bleeds through the movie, and you truely get a feel for being there.
    The plot is suprisingly life-like in the sense that it is a typical order of events and characters that surround the aftermath of a large-scale fraud scheme.
    Greed,love,beauty and murder all play important roles in the twisting story.
    Excellently written and excellently filmed, this movie will surely stick in your memory.

    The Corporation (2003)

    Not by me:

    "This is a very well-intentioned and fascinating film. The corporate world stands - justly- accused of creating a demand for goods that we do not need, which are helping to destroy the atmosphere, but which allow the corporations to make lots of money. It would seem that the bottom line is all that matters and that institutional America - especially the Supreme Court in their decision to treat corporations as people (contrary to the framers' of the 14th Amendment's wishes) - has permitted the real people of the United States to be hoodwinked into buying (literally) into the deal."


    It's ok, if you like demonizing corporations (I do).

    Wonderland (2003)

    Summary:

    On the afternoon of July 1, 1981, Los Angeles police responded to a distress call at 8763 Wonderland Avenue in Laurel Canyon and discovered a grisly quadruple homicide. Ron Launius (Lucas), Billy Deverell (Nelson), Barbara Richardson (Wagner) and Joy Miller (Garofalo) were found brutally murdered, bludgeoned to death with a pipe, and Launius's wife, Susan (Applegate), was left in critical condition. The police investigation that followed--led by detectives Sam Nico (Levine), Louis Cruz (Frankie G. ) and Mike Peters (Gainey) --would unearth a seedy world of drugs and violence, ultimately revealing a motley crew from L. A. 's underbelly including ex-con David Lind (McDermott), nightclub impresario Eddie Nash (Bogosian), and porn legend John Holmes (Kilmer) as well as Holmes's estranged wife Sharon (Kudrow) and his teenage lover Dawn Schiller (Bosworth).


    It's good. Watch it.

    Chopper (2000)

    Summary:

    Chopper tells the intense story of Mark "Chopper" Read, a legendary criminal who wrote his autobiography while serving a murder sentence in prison. His book, From the Inside, upon which the film is based, was a best-seller.

    Good fuckin movie, fun to watch. His books are wildly fucking entertaining, very much recommended. Eric Bana plays Chopper excellently.

    American Pie - Dude, you gotta see this one part where this kid totally sticks his dick in a pie because he thinks that's... well, I won't spoil it for you, see it for yourself!






    huh huh


    Seriously:

    Human Traffic - The Cardiff club scene in the 90's: five best friends deal with their relationships and their personal demons during a weekend. Jip calls himself a sexual paranoid, afraid he's impotent. Lulu, Jip's mate, doesn't find much to fancy in men. Nina hates her job at a fast food joint, and her man, Koop, who dreams of being a great hip-hop d.j., is prone to fits of un-provoked jealousy. The fifth is Moff, whose family is down on his behavior. Starting Friday afternoon, with preparations for clubbing, we follow the five from Ecstacy-induced fun through a booze-laden come-down early Saturday morning followed by the weekend's aftermath. It's breakthrough time for at least three of them.

    Big lebowski? The Crow? Boondock Saints?

    What silly country do you come from? Nobody has ever heard of such filmes before. They are obviously low budget, unpopular crap, and you should be ashamed for posting them.
