i'm really glad Equilibrium and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead were in here. Both were incredible. I never did see AI, the previews made the movie look terribad.

My Suggestions:

Dumb and Dumber
The Truman Show
The Principal
Real Men (if you can find it)
Real Genius
The Saltan Sea
Boondock Saints
White Men Can't Jump
Passenger 57
Lucky Number Slevin (flippin' AMAZING movie)
Panic Room (the camera work/CGI really boosted this movie for me)
Saving Private Ryan
The Dark Knight
With Honors
School Ties
The Wedding Singer
Men at Work
Predator
Aliens

Got a bunch more...but I'll try and leave some for others to add ;)
So Hitler was a vegatarian, and a painter.

If it says Guy Ritchie anywhere on the box, you must see it.

Bubba Ho Tep - I went in expecting crazy Evil Dead-esque horror comedy (it's got Bruce Campbell as Elvis fighting a Mummy in a retirement home). What I got was a quiet meditation on living past ones glory years. I can heartily reccomend it.

The Unforgiven - Essentially a capstone to all the classic lone gunmen Westerns. Even if you don't like Westerns, you should see it.

sry, but I am kinda over Boondock Saints. Its just a hot topic merchandise driven monstrosity that was awesome before every angsty irishman/bostinian/new englander decided they wanted to be bad ass and needed to be a 'saint'. Its like the white boy version of Scar face (over blown as well). just imho.

I would like to recomend:
Romeo is Bleeding
Kind of New York
Star Dust
The Machinest
City of Lost Children
The Proposition
Dark City
The History of Violence
Lost Highway (only to have several WTF? moments and see Patricia Arquette's sweet boobies)
The Gift (Katie Holmes is a nice, respectable, wholesome girl... and I'm gonna see her boobs.)
Wrath/LvL 70 Dra Prot Pally/Drak'Thul.

We're evil men in the gardens of paradise,
sent by the forces of death to spread devastation and destruction wherever we go.

so true. I generally don't like Josh Hartnett, but he worked well in this. Not to mention the amazing story and incredible cast. It was a welcomes surprise.

yeah, Josh Hartnett used to be on my 'punch in the face if we meet on the street' list, but it seems like he kinda pulled himself out of that teeny-heart-throb scene and just sat out of the spotlight until his time passed...then out of nowhere started making some really good movies that actually showcased his acting. 30 Days of Night was pretty good...wouldn't put it on this list, but it wasn't bad...and he had some other weird stalker movie...can't remember the name of it tho...oh well.

Well back in the day thats how I felt about brad pitt, he was a no talent hack that got into pictures because people thought he was pretty. Then I saw 12 monkeys and that all changed (oh yeah, 12 monkeys goes on the list if no one said it already). I saw Kalifornia (another good movie) after I saw 12 monkeys and it confirmed it. I later learned that he was in True Romance and I didn't even recognize him as the rasta stoner.

So yeah, hopefully Hartnett can be like Pitt and get some good roles that actually shows talent. Otherwise I would put him on the 'punch in the face if we meet on the street' list too.

I think it's quite good, considering that one person made it all alone. Except for the voice acting.
