    Any recommendations?
    I watched about half of Enter The Void. The story didn't pull me in too much, but it looked visually appealing. Adding A Tale of Two Sisters to the list though. I'm sure mom will want to watch that one with me.

    I would recommend the original movie of Batman, that movie is a amazing movie to me. You should check it out.

    I recommend not really bothering to watch "300" which is utter crap.
    Yeah add "A tale of two sisters", and of course "The shining" if you somehow never watched it. Those are the two best films in history.
    You should probably watch the whole thing of "Enter the void" before really getting the point I suppose.
    Watch Gaspars previous film "Irreversible".
    I also just rediscovered an amazing classic, which is "Mulan". Incredble film.
    Also watch the japanese drama "Still walking".

    I've got to watch 300. I'm a sucker for these type of films. I loved Lord of The Rings and The Eagle, so anything like roman or medieval fighting or anything similar is a weak spot. It's not factually correct, I know, but I'm gonna give it a chance. I liked Watchmen, which a lot of people hate so I might like 300.

    I watched The Shining when I was really young, I'll put it up for a rewatch. Also putting Enter The Void on there, should always finish a movie.

    I love Mulan actually. My girlfriend is part Japanese and loves Disney, so I get to watch this movie plenty haha. I like Japanese movies, especially 13 Assassins, that movie was amazing. Loved the fight scene at the end. Superb. Also Japanese animated movies, such as Hayao Miyazaki movies. Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Castle In The Sky, even Ponyo were amazing in my opinion.




    To Franco, Which Batman movie? The one Tim Burton directed?

    "Mulan" is set in China.

    Yeah there are tons of great Japanese films indeed.
    South korea also produces incredibly good films.

    I think franco is referring to this one Batman (1966) - IMDb

    Carlye loves anything Asian. I should've known it was Chinese though. My mistake.

    I haven''t seen the 1966 one before. Not really a huge Batman fan to be honest.

    I'm probably going to watch Sin City or Public Enemies next, since I just got copies of them. I'll be adding to my list fairly often, and it'll probably become very large. I take any recommendations. I'm going to put up a favorite movies list so people know what I'm interested in.

    I love anything asian too, haha. Japanese films are the best films.

    I dont care that much for Batman either, or any other comic book films for that matter, with possible exception of Superman.

    "Sin city" is pretty good, and that goes for "Public enemies" too.

    As far as "300" goes, I'm a sucker for "lord of the rings" too, but "300" is just... bad. By the way, it is directed by Zack Snyder, who brought you the film I believe I saw you wrote that you absolutely hated, "Sucker punch". But then again, I hated "Watchmen" as well.

    I'd like to recommend you the south korean film "Shi"(Poetry). It is hands down the best film of 2010. Yes. Better than "The king's speech" and better than "Inception".

    She's so proud of being 1/4 Japanese haha.

    The only movie that was based on a comic book or graphic novel that I've really liked is Watchmen (Director's cut) I haven't read the graphic novel yet, but I loved the movie. The only Zack Snyder movie that I have liked. Sucker Punch was absolutely horrible. Nothing about it was worth watching. (Well maybe except for the fact it was all girls, but even then.) I'm not really sure what to think about Zach Snyder. He made Watchmen, which I loved. Sucker Punch, which I hated, and Legend of The Guardians, which I thought was just okay.

    I saw you post about Shi before. I'll add that, along with The King's Speech.

    Also adding The Help, girlfriend has been nagging me to watch it. It won a Golden Globe and a lot of people liked it, so what the heck. Might as well see it.

    I've only seen 3 on that list. Definitely will add Blue Valentine, I like Ryan Gosling.

    And I Saw The Devil is on Netflix Instant so I'll be able to get a hold of that one easily.
    On my first date with my girlfriend we saw Toy Story 3, love that movie.

    IMDb: 20 must sees - a list by escapethejakee

    That's the only IMDb list I have made. And The Book of Eli does not belong on it. Rewatched it and saw that the twist made absolutely no sense. Which took away any genius the movie had going for it. Then again I feel like changing half of the votes I have on IMDb.

    If you have not seen Winter's Bone you should check it out. It's really subtle and moving at the same time, but I've noticed it is not everyone's cup of tea. (Mostly people who do not like "boring" movies.)

    Me, Carlye, and her older sister are working on a script for a short movie we are going to enter into a competition. The winner gets to make a movie with Ridley Scott. Which I think will be really cool.

    The 1966 Batman is entertaining. It's more funny than serious though. Still good but.
