My favourite all-time comedy. Eddie Murphy, Dan Ackroyd, topped off with Jamie Lee-Curtis' breasts. Perfection

Any of the Old Boy/Sympathy for Mr & Mrs Vengence are good.
Ju-On (the original Japanese version if you haven't seen yet).
Jacobs Ladder (classic)
Takashi Miike is great - Check out The Happiness of the Katakuris for a classic if you can find it.
The Changeling (original). Although PG, still creeps the hell outta me
and of course Spinal Tap..

:lol:

Might be a bit soppy for you, but have you seen Juno? You can combine film watching with poster spotting!

Not sure if you've seen Semi-Pro yet, but if you're into Will Ferrell movies you should check it out. I did last weekend and was pleasantly surprised.

In no particular order...

"The Shining"

"Full Metal Jacket"

"A Clockwork Orange"

"Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas"

"Braveheart"

"Friday"

"V for Vendetta"

"The Godfather"

All 3 Lord of the Rings Extended versions. (Hope you've got 14 ours)


I hate movies. I'd rather stare at my framed posters than our 50" HD Plasma. :roll:

If you don't mind the subject matter, I would strongly suggest Super High Me.

Doug Benson is hilarious. I thought that it was very interesting and extremely funny. My wife who isn't into that stuff at all even found it funny.

Anyways, just my .02
