It's a little expensive, but produces excellent pictures.

Meet The Feebles
Peter Jackson's second movie. About a theatre company of vomiting, defecating, fornicating, conniving puppets. Movie starts with a walrus shagging a cat, and becomes ever more rancid until a hippo runs amok with an M-60.

The original and definitive altered time (slo mo, timelapse, speeded). The Philip Glass music. I see 2 or 3 references a month even today on TV. Timelapse of a sunrise with Glass like music, helicopter views the same.

Another original was Paris Texas, Ry Cooder's music. Every time you see a desert shot today it seems to be accompanied by a long twaaaanngg note on a guitar. Started there.

Ben Dover's Anal Massacre
We see the protagonist journey through suburbia where he meets women
wishing to be taken away from the humdrum of daily life via the act of
sodomy. All narrative is reduced to mere grunting and the occasional
snippets of dialogue such as, "put it up my arse," and, "Ugh, yeah."

With the day drawing to a close, we see our man is exhausted, sexually
and emotionally, as he stares into space contemplating the vast
complexity of his life. He realises his life is without meaning,
but it's too late as the camera pans round past a woman smiling and wet wiping
her fanny. The screen fades to black. A touching tribute to The Sopranos finale. Our hero? Dead inside.

Clouds of Sils Maria
A unique movie - only one of its kind ever made: a subtle horror movie. It's so subtle you may not notice it's a horror movie. Aimed at fans of theater (about which they talk a lot about) and Friedrich Nietzsche (whom they fortunately never mentioned, but may as well have written the screenplay). Kristen Stewart does a fine job, as do Juliette Binoche and Chloe Grace Moretz. Best movie of this decade, so far.

Being dad to a 4 year old girl
We watch quite a few musicals together, to get away from the Disney/Princess vibe. I'm a little surprised to find myself utterly enjoying Singin' In The Rain and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, but goddamn if they aren't fantastic films.

"Future Schlock" and "Powwow Highway"
Future Schlock: Middle class rise up in australia and kill the rich and wall up the poor in the inner city, forcing everyone to have barbecues and tvs. They keep the poor in line by drugging water supply, but our heroes get on by only drinking wine
Thought it was lost to mankind, but some bloke recently found it in vhs discount bin and put it up on youtube to my suprise
Factoid: They filmed two bouncers but later dubbed in stupid girly voices over their dialogue. When the bouncers found out they assualted the production office. also, imho has the best closing credits of any movie, though it does mean having to watch the fucker
Watch the full film here.

Powwow highway: Indian takes roadtrip in his "war pony". Gives chocolate bar to his ancestors
Full film:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4k30KpZp5-E

Also "Under the Rainbow". An abomination of a film, but it does have dwarfingtons

Nude Nuns With Big Guns is on horror, tonight.
I'll recommend that on the strength of the title alone.

I look forward to reading many more 1 or 2 line replies, this week, broken up by the occasional longer entry that's vying to get into Pseuds' Corner.

Lets try a 'yahoo answers' tack
I'm constantly bugged by the fact I once watched a film (some many years ago) in which one of the characters frequently repeats the line: "The dog dies" in a broad southern American drawl. I have no other memory of this film save for this one line. For some bizarre reason I want to watch it again. What the hell is that film?

Other than that, I saw 'Force Majeure' last week and thought it quite uncomfortable but was surprised that others in the cinema thought it was an uproarious comedy. It just goes to show how differently we can all view the same film

The Wizard of Oz.
I went on holiday to Colorado. Partook of some of their weed (first smoke in years), then watched it. Best film I've ever seen. It's fucking mental.

Iron Sky
Engagingly ridiculous in both concept and execution, the film sees the Nazis returning to present-day Earth after their self-imposed exile on the Moon.

The steampunk-like technology looks great, and the whole film looks surprisingly good despite its miniscule crowd-funded budget.

Can't wait for the sequel when, to escape a nuclear war, the US President (pretty much Sarah Palin) reveals herself to be a lizard and descends into the hollow Earth to encounter Adolf Hitler riding a dinosaur through a land that time forgot.

Recently? I watched "The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer" again.
Every bit as good as I remember, and as relevant today with all the talk about referendums for this and that.

Caligula is a fascinating bad film
As porn, it's boring. As a drama, it doesn't work a lot of the time, but it's so NEARLY a good historic epic (when it's not being porny), with actors of the calibre of Malcolm Mcdowall, Helen Mirren, Peter O'Toole, John Gielgud, etc it's frustrating in its badness.

Those may look like normal power lines, but they're electric fences to keep the trolls at bay.

Left Behind.
It's a fantastic and beautiful film.
Almost as good as Oblivion.

in all seriousness
12 angry men is a very clever, well written, well acted film and if you haven't watched it because it's old or black and white or any other reason you really should. I'm sure you find this anecdote hilarious but I'm actually quite serious.

Harder They Come
This movie made in 1972 remains a classic today. The story based on the history of a Jamaican outlaw named Ivanhoe “Rhygin” Martin. The movie beautifully incorporated reggae into the story by casting reggae musician Jimmy Cliff in the lead and making him a singer. Through great music, sharp passionate acting and cinematography that captured the beautiful people and landscapes Jamaica, Harder They Come is one of those epic movies that both reflected and changed a country and a culture.

I as in Tesco the other day
and there were two football related films on dvd right next to each other on the shelf. They both bore the legend "THE FUNNIEST FOOTBALL COMEDY OF THE YEAR!"
I didn't know who to believe, so I bought neither of them. Their loss.
