    I just got Casino today, I'll be checking it out later this week..

    My all time favorite has to be Scarface though, what a great movie. Other good movies;

    Sin City
    La Vita est Bella
    Pulp Fiction
    The Pianist
    Saving Private Ryan
    Platoon
    and on a completely different note; Lord of the Rings trilogy

    Not on the all time best list of movies, but Sean Penn was amazing in Mystic River AND I am Sam, massively underrated performance. Great actor. Also loved Mickey Blue Eyes for pure entertainment, if only for Hugh Grant's pronouncation of 'Foggetaboutit'.

    Not really a movie, but a must watch anyway: Band of Brothers

    As you can see, I'm a sucker for war movies.

      This is my top 5 list but warning I'm a bit of a sci-fi freak so maybe it's not for all tastes.

      1) STAR WARS (Original Trilogy) - Unsurpassed at any level after all these years

      2) Blade Runner - (Simply the best sci-fi movie ever made)

      3) Alien (the first movie) - (A unique mixture of sci-fi, horror and action)

      4) Once upon a time in America - (Sergio Leone is my fav filmaker)

      5) L.A. Confidential - (One of the great films of the 90's)

            Great film imo... one of the best ever!!!
            or Run Lola Run....

            Good one Olympiakara..... I have to admit I rarely expect an Olympiakos fan to be a 'cinefil'...

            You must be one of the exceptions.... :wink:

            Ok , there was another thread about movies as someone mentioned ...

            I will once again state 2 or 3 'pearls' IMO that are maybe hard to find and probably will only appeal to a few members...



            First of all : Vozvrashcheniye ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0376968/)

            This is a masterpiece of modern Russian cinema...I was stunned when I saw this (DVD)... I can only imagine how it would have felt if I had watched in a cinema...


            Secondly Kim-ki Duk's 3-Iron (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0423866/)

            Utterly beautiful and touching... Duk is one of a kind.....and what a song by Natasha Atlas ...


            I would also like to mention 'Missing' by Costa Gavras... Famous one, I saw it once more recently and I was once again stunned by Jack Lemmon's acting...One of the best performances I have ever seen..

            I was deeply affected by this movie cause I was always somehow curious to know what happened back then in 1973 when Alliente's goverment was torn to pieces by Pinochet...

            I stronlgy recommend all three... The first 2 however are definatelly not for everyone ....

            P.S.

            I haven't watched the film Arttex mentioned.... I hope I manege to get in DVD here in Greece

              Good one indeed and well worth finding it. Was on Crete this summer, btw. Kind of place I like. Not urban too much, with warm small towns.

              Speaking about funny movies, which can make your evening for two hours, I would like to mention these two with Hugh Grant: "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and "Nothing Hill".
              "Before the Rain" is something on different level, though.
              Choose wisely

                It's easy to be Hard and Hard to be Smart.
                For instance, did you know it is technically illegal to own more than six vibrators in Texas? It's true.

                      Doesn't anybody here like Alfred Hitchcock? So many great movies, I can't decide which one is my favourite.

                      Also, one of the movies I would like to see any day is Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch.

                        Talking about movies i highly recomand you to see "Se7en", by David Fincher. Four super-stars (Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey and Gwyneth Paltrow) in a five-star movie, IMO, who deserve to be in '90 top-ten movies ever made.



                        "This movie is from start to finish a well produced and directed film. The performances in this movie are outstanding. Brad Pitt, once again, makes his role a stand-out performance by putting his versatile acting skills into his interpretation of Detective David Mills. Morgan Freeman is well-cast. His brooding acting style fits the character (Detective William Somerset) like a glove, and Gwyneth Paltrow gives her best performance EVER in the role of Brad Pitt's supportive wife/lover (Tracy Mills). And of course, Kevin Spacey who plays the diabolical yet misunderstood serial killer". (imdb.com)

                        See it :!: :!: :!:

                            "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" *

                            * no spelling mistakes


                            I found this movie extremely amusing, Coen brothers can make a great actor even from George Clooney. Fantastic music and 1,5 hour of good fun
                            Thanks, Peter !

                              It would be hard to name the best film for me and most of my favourite ones were already mentioned, but nobody mentioned Clockwork Orange yet, that is also a great movie!
