Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

ive been meaning to see this one

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

I thought it was really good, to the point that I was sitting in stunned silence at the end of it.  It's very powerful, especially considering the book it's based on is meant for children.

Sounds like a gay movie lol.....jk.:lol::P

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

Love the non-hollywood tone/ending.  Not a film that was meant to have happy feeling but damn did it pack a bigger punch than I expected.

And Rip, I think you are the only person who would ever call a movie about the holocaust gay and get away with it.  lol

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

I've seen the trailer for this before, looks great.

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

Oh man I saw this at last year's Savannah Film Festival, man there was not one dry eye in the house at the end of the movie and everyone was dead silent for nearly a minute into the credits before a quiet, subdued applause.

Oscar worthy film imo.

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

i just saw the shawshank redemption and it rocked!

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

I heard about it. the writer got screwed. It was supposed to be a true story when they bought the rights but then it turns out the author lied. it was all ovr tv. Its because of that I never did go see it but if it is that good I may chack it out

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

Who Can Kill A Child? I don't watch too many new movies, but theres always old films that I haven't seen. This movie kicked my ass

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

I have to check it out now.

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

also Irreversible. That movie was so crazy, I had to watch something funny afterwards. That never happens

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

I finally sat down and watched The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas last night, and wow, what a great film.  I was hesitant to watch at first due to the sad nature of the subject matter, but once I started watching, I found myself drawn into Bruno's story and I couldn't switch it off.

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

I've been meaning to check this movie out, funnily enough it was seeing David Thewlis in the trailer that really drew my attention, as an actor I think he is one of the best/ severely underrated. But now this seems to have a seal of approval, I really have to get around to watching The Boy in Striped Pyjamas! smile

^^ and to Ash, I completely agree. It is my favourite movie of all time and never fails to grab me as it does. Glad to know someone else can now appreciate this fine film and imo, one of the better King adaptations smile

^Definitely check it out BTK.  It really puts it in a different light when you think about how it must have been to be a child and live in that era.

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

hardly horror film..

more a disturbing look at how fucked up humans can be..

but germans speaking engwish just doesnt do it justice, you need the evil german language to go with it.

doubt ill watch this though... looks to emotional n shit.. id rather watch band of brothers

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

Check out "The girl next door" 2007.Staring Blythe Auffarth, Daniel Manche. Supposed to be a true story..it's really a fucked up movie

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

I haven't seen or heard anything about this film!!!!!!!!! What the heck!?

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

The Fog Of War  (documentary)

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

I've heard good things about it from random places and to hear about it here on a horror site tells me that I need to go see this movie, pronto.

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

Well this is listed in the mainstream movies section.  Definately nothing horror about it.

Re: The best movie I have seen in a long time.....

i saw it and it was not that great. i mean hell... germans with British accents? they could have at least tried to make it realistic
