I'm sorry but I've never really understood why Shawshank Redemption is so highly rated. To me its just another prison drama. No originality.

Yeah no problem but i don't think it set out to be original. Just a dam good piece of movie making.

 

 

It's because of that tall drink of water with the silver spoon up his ass.

LA Confidential or Unforgiven stand out for me.

 

The insider (1999) also deserves an honourable mention.

The Insider was fantastic. Fans of Heat will like it, cuz it's a Michael Mann film, and it stars Al Pacino.

Not everyone enjoys all Coen brothers movies. I didn't like a Serious Man at all. Watched it a 2nd time to see if I'd like it and found it worse the the first. Just not for me.  

Thats because a serious man is crap!

Great thread.

 

Mine would have to be between Shawshank and Pulp Fiction.

Got to be Trainspotting for me, the film totally blew me away, absolutely fantastic with a sensational soundtrack.

 

Helps that it reminds me of a really great time in my life - League Cup win, Britpop, Euro 96, finishing my postgrad in a glorious summer in Norwich

^^^1996 is the best year of all time.

 

Most definitely this.  Even as an 11 year old at the time.  I always imagine what it would have been like to have been 7 or 8 years older.

Say we were to take certain bits from al the 90s films and mash them all together to make the greatest 90s film ever, what bits would you want in there?

 

I think a shootout like the one in Heat would need to be in there.

 

Here's a bit about it

And here it is (Gory stuff)

Also, I think the film would have to be a tale of redemption.

Graf Orlock released a 7" EP which used only samples and lyrics from Heat. If yer in to grind/hardcore and like Heat too, it is a MUST. Cracking good stuff.

...but not as good as that song farmer Hogett sings to Babe when he's poorly.

You can ball my wife if she wants you to

You can lounge around here on her sofa in her ex-husband's dead-tech, post-modernistic bullshit house if you want to

But you do not get to watch

my **** television set!

That'll do, pig. That'll do.

That was the summer I discovered hard rock; my musical tastes in some sense have been set since then. Three albums from that year are especially to blame:

Stone Temple Pilots - Tiny Music... Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop

Metallica - Load

Rush - Test for Echo

I think true Lies deserves a mention. Such a brilliant piece of over the top satire action movie. 

 

Pushes the viewer beyond the suspend disbelief into outright laughter. 

 

Total Entertainment. Was fantastic as a bookend for the crazy 80s action.

Fire Walk With Me,

Three Colors (Blue, White, Red)

The Double Life of Véronique

Lost Highway

The Muppet Christmas Carol

Surprised  nobody said Buffalo 66, I liked it the last time I saw it but since then I've become a connoisseur so not sure if I would like it as much now.

Opened the page and saw old auntie shagger Morpheus was quoted and panicked for a moment. Weird times back then, weird times.

Pulp Fiction, Leon, and Se7en. Those movies are evergreens, I never tire of watching them.

Special mention for Fight Club. The first time I saw it I hated it, but it became another movie I could watch again and again. Chuck Palahniuk is my favourite author, and is such an untapped source for some potentially great movies.

As for Shawshank, I actually preferred Green Mile.
