I do hope you're talking about the original - with real minis and Noel Coward - otherwise: shame on you for being so young.

Winston, it's the sequel to the original I was talking about. :p And I'm yet to watch the original one ( I expected 'the reaction' totally :p, but it's in my list of movies to watch. But because of this thread, I wanna watch Little Miss Sunshine before I watch any other English movies. ) But come on, Jason Statham and Mark Wahlberg in the same movie -- now that has to count for something. :-)

I'm just watching American Psycho again. It's hilarious
Highly recommended.

Avoid these if you haven't seen the movie yet:
Business cards.
Hip to be square.

Lore, German spoken film about an adolescent girl at the end of the Second World War.

I saw this film in the airplane coming from Korea to the Netherlands. I know most people will not like it, since it's not really commercial, but I totally loved this story. You have to like these specific art films though, and it helps to speak German of course.

Why hasn't anyone recommended "The Princess Bride"?

Just the sheer number of quotable quotes it has:
"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
"Get used to disappointment."
"Murdered by pirates is good."
"Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something."
"As you wish."

and so on.

I recommend Gravity (Sci-Fi). If you are planning on going to see it, watch it in an IMAX because it makes the movie even more stunning!

Some of the movies that I like are: 'I, Robot' (nice thought, and, action in it), 'Casino Royale' (action-filled)... and also the one I watched after some time of it's starting on TV, called, 'The Cure' ('The Cure' on Wikipedia), which is, like, an emotion-filled movie with summer leisure days of the two boys in it and their mission...

(I recommend,) you can also watch this movie- 'Taare Zameen Par'- or- 'Stars on Earth'- with English subtitles as the movie is in Hindi language originally. Nice. I hope you like it..!
'Taare Zameen Par' on IMDb
'Taare Zameen Par' on Wikipedia
Thanks!

One of my favorite war movies is 84 Charlie Mopic. It's about a documentary crew that accompanies 84 company on a patrol in Vietnam. Needless to say, things fall apart.

This movie did the best job of putting me in the action than any other war movie.

Poultrygeist. This is a stupid funny film, not for kids, but fun to watch with friends when you're snowed in.

Red Cliff is a nice epic to watch. You can buy it on blu ray.

It's so hard to name just one.

I know it's been panned, but I have to say my favorite is It's a Wonderful Life. Equally, I have to say Song of Bernadette. I just can't leave out the Seven Samurai and Ran by Akira Kurosawa.

Sorry, impossible for me to pick only one recommended movie.

Regards,
Robert

We watched The Lego Movie today as a part of a team event.

Why like it? It was refreshing to see that creativity and imagination on screen after a long time. And I loved the pop song 'Eeverything is awesome'. I think it's a good watch.

By the way, I watched Office Space and it has been one of my favorite movie ever since. Some that I found to be quite compelling:

Breaking Away
Vertigo
Dr Strangelove
The Hard Way

I hope I haven't repeated any. If you would like to see some best-of-breed Indian cinema I would suggest you to check out Satyajit Ray's work. His movies' that I have seen of late and liked as well are:

Pratidwandi
Mahanagar
Agantuk

I can recommend "Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter" (US title: "Generation War"). It's a great three-part movie taking action during Second World War, from the German perspective. The movie is about a group of good friends who divide their ways because of war, but they promise themselves that they will meet again on Christmas, when the war will be won...

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmyGPX23px4


Another one is "Der Untergang" (US title: "Downfall"). It's a movie about Second World War coming to it's end, from the perspective inside Hitler's bunker.

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bp1RXmM1-60


If you love movies about WWII and/or you are very interested in its history, those movies are must watch.

Generally, if you only see American movies about WWII, then I recommend to see those one as well. Americans are really terrible about making WWII movies where German perspective plays major or main role. For me, a person who is very passionate about history of this war, it's very pissing off when I see an American movie where a German soldier stands with his hands in his pockets and chewing a gum. Or seeing soldiers with bears and hair longer than ears level. American directors simply have no idea about German side, thus they make them very Americanized in every movie.
