I remember loving one Kiarostami film, thinking his first was kind of cute, but hating Ten. And then, there's the aforementioned, which is the latest word in bourgeois, self-involved drivel. Funnily, the last film I saw which I would have said the same also featured the otherwise great Juliette Binoche; Summer Hours. The characterisations in that were nothing short of laughable.
Certified Copy also distinguishes itself for fronting one of the least original, entirely non-comittal theories of art in existence.
Last film I saw was Les rendevous d'Anna, I think. Chantal Akerman; now there's a real filmmaker, and the fleeting, ultimately doomed attempts at interpersonal connection in that film were so much more edifying than the long-form self-absorption of the Kiarostami effort.
Never saw "...d'Anna". Thanks! And, just like everyone who reads this thread, feel free to write a little something here whenever you wish! I enjoy film so much, that I really appreciate people informing me about the good ones, and the ones to avoid
Brilliant cast performance.
Good peace, good tone, screenplay without tricks...
Nice finished (though rasping)
Eastwood at his best
Eastwood didn't play in Mystic River, Sean Penn did. Possible mixup with Gran Torino or Bridges of Madison County?
He directed the film
Ah, yes. Now where is my facepalm picture...
Big trouble in little China(1986). I was forced to watch this. I thought it was cute. Nothing more.
Kurt Russell is king! A square headed king!
Ahem. Some of my favourites:
Koyaanisqatsi(1982). Words cannot discribe how beautiful this movie is, also it's a pyschadelic drug.
Disney's Robin hood(1973). One of my childhood favourites that still stands up as a brilliant movie. Great music, great animation, great voice acting, just great all round.
The Road(2009). If you ever feel like spiraling down into a pit of abismal depression watch this movie. I loved it but I only watched it once.
Evil dead 2(1987). Awsome!!!! 'nuf said.
Monty python and the holy grail(1974). Non-stop hilarity from start to finish.
Event horizon(1997). One of the few horror movies I've seen and enjoyed. Quite disturbing.
Threads(1984). England if it was nuked. Very good but also depressing.
Rambo IV(2008). Probably wouldn't appeal to those lacking in testosterone but I loved it. The only time when I've been in the cinema and people have started clapping after the film.
Aqua teen hunger force colon movie film for theaters(2007). Drug use is advised to accompany this movie. Very funny but makes little sense.
P.s Thanks for all the suggestions everyone, as you can probably tell I haven't watched many classics.
Reign of Fire was a good end of the world/apocalypse movie.
I'd watch a sci-fi movie base on this:
Oldboy is good, watch that, watch it now.
Dead Man ('95) was a great flick. Other than the crappy Neil Young soundtrack, there isn't much to complain about with that film.
Beat the Devil ('53) was an exceptional movie. Gina Lollobrigida! what more do you need?
Kelly's Heroes ('70) is my favorite crime movie.
The Neil Young soundtrack is perfect for the film...
Haha! I've had this argument in a bar once, theoretical'. You're not draggin' me into that again.
All I have to say on the subject is: I think a few well chosen Sixteen Horsepower songs would have been vastly superior.
Songs would have been an awful idea, even if by such an unusual band.
A scene from LoTR. Pretty decent even if there are no splosions in it.
(can't embed this one folks)
Most of these are newer movies (not your favs) but maybe you seen some? And thanks for posting in my forum!

His song at the end of Philadelphia was a perfect way to end that movie.
Sharon, found the scene. Maybe it can be interpreted other ways???
