I'm surprised how much I liked this one:

The ending is so sad and bittersweet, it really tugged at my heartstrings, especially with that song (The Call - Regina Spektor). To me, it's about leaving childhood behind.

Edit:
I'm looking forward to The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader now because I enjoyed Prince Caspian so much.

*Until the End of the World
Well, much that is a Wim Wenders actually.. but the music in the above breaks me.
*O Brother, Where Art Thou
*Wag the Dog
*Gattaca
*Babettes Feast
*Blues Brothers
*Rear Window
*Its a Wonderful Life
*Men Who Stare at Goats but reckon I'd better read the book
*Tripod and the Dragon - more of a stage comedy act by comedic musicians but have included it here because of how much I love this and how fun it is for gamers.
And until NS I'm not even a gamer, not even Go Fish!

Dark Star

Really?
I watched that last week. I mean it was quite fun, in a so-bad-it's-funny kind of way, but hardly a top 20 contender. The only really good bit was the talking-down-the-bomb scene.


I've been working my way through a list of cult films recently and Dark Star was on it. Here's the others:

Metropolis - Interesting, but I need to find a version with better music
Idiocracy - Good idea but could have been better
Alphaville - Didn't live up to the hype, but some interesting ideas
Battle Royale - Silly but fun
No Blade of Grass - Very low budget, but not bad
Serenity - Disappointing compared to the series
THX 1138 - Great ideas weirdly put together
District 13 - Pretty good
Silent Running - Low budget but pretty good neverthless
Children of Men - Brilliant, one of the best films I've seen in the last decade
Quatermass and the Pit - Awesome, but a slightly disappointing ending

Really. As I said at the top - just a list of films I thought were worth seeing. As with most comedies it depends a lot on your SOH. You didn't get a chuckle from
"Sod this intelligent life crap, just give me something I can blow up", or
"Congratulations, you've decided to clean the elevator" ?

I really enjoyed watching Baywatch with a group of friends this past year. Granted it was a guys night that we went to see it in the theater and have a few drinks after so it may not have been as good as it seemed then.
