Must see movies

Postby [DRuG]NikT on Tue Jul 31, 2007 3:15 pm

- My wife is a Gangster (Koren with subs - but brilliant)
- The Big Lebowski
- Initial D
- Dune - the miniseries not the movie - there's 6 parts, not just 3.
- The Cannonball Run
- Mad Max - they are all good.
- The Twilight Zone movie
- It's all gone Pete Tong
- Fear and Loathing on the Road to Hollywood - Hunter S Thompson

I know I'll think of more, but that's a start.

Grish - if you liked Baraka, you have merely hit the tip of a very cool iceberg.... and I don't just mean it's temperature....

http://www.spiritofbaraka.com/

You GOTSTA check out the films listed on this site....

What is unique about Baraka is the type of camera/lens used. It is a patented design, which is not allowed to be reproduced.. only few of these lenses/cameras exist, with the inventor strictly controlling their use/posession. The lens allows an image to maintain focus across a huge depth - meaning, the near and the far imagery is all in focus at once. This makes for incredible imagery, as well as the ability to depict scenes that would normally be a no go zone for photography, due to focussing issues.

The risk with a lens like this, is if it were adapted for use by the military. As such, it's manufacturer is very careful in ensuring it's ethical application/use.

While Baraka is arguably the best of the series, I found all of them equally mindblowing... only issue with some, like the one with the Hopi Prophecy chants as a soundtrack, is that the sound can get annoying... I recommend watching with the volume down and a nice CD on.

Much respekt for an awesome recommendation.

And Widgit - Hedwig - WELL worth the update... funny movie.

As I agree with many of your suggestions I am going to suggest a few not on this list.

Waking life
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 854515095#

1984 (if you don't know who George Orwell is, he is one of the most influential scifi writters of our age)
http://video.google.com.au/videoplay?do ... =en&emb=1#

And they were hosting 720p version of
Charlie Chaplin - The kid
on youtube, but it has since been made private.
But if you want to see a great at his best, get this movie, you will laugh and you will cry.
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 326646750#

And more on the Documentary vein
Home 720p
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqxENMKaeCU

Last but not least, I couldnt find an online copy, but if you can find a movie called
Europa
its in both German and English. All aboard a train to Europa during the war. Great use of color which seeps throughout the monotone movie.

I have plenty more but this is a good start.
