any good film you have seen... an old one or new...

School of Rock is great comedy with Jack Black and Joan Cusack... and Hitchhiker´s Guide To The Galaxy is classic book and the film remake is also well-made...

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0339291/) is by far the best movie I've seen this year. In fact, in the last couple of years, I can't even remember a movie that made me smile so childish like that one did.

In terms of anime, wich is what I've been most into this year, this is not a movie, but Fullmetal Alchemist (http://anidb.info/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=979) is the best anime I've ever seen.

In terms of anime, wich is what I've been most into this year, this is not a movie, but Fullmetal Alchemist (http://anidb.info/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=979) is the best anime I've ever seen.I second both these motions. Lemony Snicket's was amazing. The cinematography was a beauty to watch and very funny, I especially loved when Jim Carey was a salior, that's how everyone talks where I'm from, it was scary, lol. And since being turned onto Fullmetal Alchemist, i've been blown away by it's gripping story and emotional twists and turns. I have only seen up to episode 28 (eng dub) and I'm soooo excited, I gotta go pick up the PS2 games...

I did go and see Rob Zombie's The Devils Rejects at the cinema, which is rare for me, and I loved it. It was a shocking movie, I haven't been that shocked in quite some time, but definitely not for children. The cinematography in that was pretty amazing too. I appreciate the way Rob Zombie captures the filming style of the 70's cult horror classics. House of 1000 Corpses and The Devils Rejects were so...um...grainy, I guess that's a good word, they didn't look as clean as the movies made today. Even the movies that try to capture those styles seem to fall short. I also enjoyed the way that even though I don't really agree with what the characters were doing, I got much closer to accept them as human beings. You got to see a human side, a family side which wasn't captured in HOOTC. The soundtrack was KICK-ASS too, awesome music through-out the whole movie.

Probably the family guy movie (Stewie Griffin The Untold Story). It was really funny plus the fact it was leaked to the internet 3 months before release date didnt hurt ether :)

The best film I saw on the cinema this year (and possibly the only one) was Sin City (http://imdb.com/title/tt0401792/). Other good films I saw on DVD recently were Amelie (http://imdb.com/title/tt0211915/) and Kiki's Delivery Service (http://imdb.com/title/tt0097814/). All top notch films I'd recommend, check the reviews!

I'm also currently looking forward to A Scanner Darkly (http://www.apple.com/trailers/warner_independent_pictures/a_scanner_darkly.html)... I think thats all :)

I refuse to see that one. From what I saw in the previews and read in the reviews the movie is way to far from the book for my liking.

My favorite so far this year was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I haven't seen 40 Year Old Virgin yet, but I want to. I'm also looking forward to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Producers, and Rent.

The best new film I have seen this year is 'The Girl in the Café', http://www.uk.imdb.com/title/tt0443518/
The acting is excellent!

The Wedding Crashers was very funny, 40 Year Old Virgin was absolutely hysterical, probably my favorite movie so far this year.

As a sort of on-topic question, I just watched Citizen Kane as it is supposed to be the best movie ever made. Can anyone tell me why? I didn't see it as being all that special.

Monty Python's The Meaning of Life: Plenty of funny jokes, songs, and visual gags. Of course, seeing Brits in drag is always a hoot.

I really liked Charlie and the Chocloate Factory, but then I tend to like Tim Burton films and Johnny Depp is a very good actor. Hitchhiker's Guide was fun as well since I had read the books several times in the past and I agree with stormy_eyes...I enjoy British humour

Lemony Snickets was good? oh crap....had a couple of chances to see it but took my lame roommates advise and did not....gotta get it then...thank ;-)

About War of the worlds....not to spoil the ending ..but i think the ending ruined the movie...it sucked! first half was good...but thats about it!

I saw War of the Worlds. Yes, it is far from the book, but I don't think it really hurt too much. The essence of the book is there, and I thought the movie was pretty effective. There is one scene that will look very familiar if you've seen Jurassic Park.

I think they all are 5 / 5, that is all I can remember this year.

the ending sucked ass - just a sudden ending in 5 seconds and the whole viewpoint of the movie was stupid - why follow this guy and his family for the whole story - it's not like they saved the world or anything they might as well have died.

Yes it is very good. Much, much better than I imagined it to be. I wasn't expecting or wanting to see it, but I had recently seen Jim Carrey in Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind I guess I wanted to see more of him. Weird enough, I don't think he is the attraction of the movie.. the scenery is.

the ending sucked ass couldnt have said it better myself.

I wasn't expecting or wanting to see it me too...and with people arnd me steering me away...i thought it might be just another big-budget studio rip...well, guess not.

Most interesting new film I saw this year? The Life Aquatic.

Just saw Dr. Strangelove for the first time last night; had never seen it before, WOW!

Good for you Seti - yes it is amazing. "WOW!" is an understatement for Dr. Strangelove :) If you haven't seen it yet, you might be interested now in "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers" with Geoffrey Rush. Quite good I thought.

Good movies I have seen this year include

- Kingdom of Heaven. What can I say, I like those kinds of movies

- Memento. Everybody talked about it, and I finally saw it. Whoa!

- Ring. Same as above

- Hitchickers Guide to The Galaxy. It rocked!

Unseen movies that have the potential to rock: Sin City

DOGVILLE - in the beginning I thought it was strange, quirky, boring,
but all of a sudden you realize it has lifted off and it's absolutely
breathtaking (if not very pleasant).

THE GRUDGE - fantastic movie. Very, very scary (wheee!! :-))

I just saw Dreamcatcher and thought that it was very smart. I know it was out a few years ago but i only just got to watch it.

Sin City, the best movie this year!
Well, the Grudge isn't nearly as scary as the Ring, but u'll still have to learn a lot about horror movies then ;)

Serenity rocked. So did Sin City and Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Serenity, The Constant Gardener, and Lord of War. Serenity was the best. Lord of War had by far the best opening scene of any movie of all time, period. My eyes were bulging out of my head and my jaw was hanging precariously just above the sticky, popcorn-laden floor.

And how could I forget March of the Penguins? I absolutely adored that movie.

I get to the movies about once a year ($8 + Bad Movies = Me not wanting to go)
Anyway,
The g/f and I saw March of the Penguins... it was really pretty good.

I refuse to see remakes (and since that's what everyone is doing these days).

I personally can't wait for Chronicals of Narnia to start in December :D

My wife's looking foward to that as well. It ought to be a lavish spectacle, at the very least, and I'll get to make bad jokes about a Disney movie that shows a shaved kitty.

Im going to show what a pushover for my friends I am.

The Constant Gardner , probably the best movie of the year IMHO.

March of the Penguins of course

and Crash, though Im not sure if it was released within this year, but I think it was.

The machinist (http://www.themachinistthemovie.com/) is the best movie I have seen in ages. This is my sort of film.:)
I can't believe Christian Bale got that skinny for his role in this film. :shock:
