    I just watched a flick that came out a couple of years ago; a Tim Burton movie called 9. Pretty good flick; great animation. It was based on a master's thesis a guy did that was a short flick about 11 minutes long - fabulous. You can get it at netflix.

    Other movies I remember as being very, very well done, if chilling - What Dreams may Come with Robin Williams in a not -funny role. Another film I remember, which is more chilling than Hitchcock - is The Talented Mr. Ripley with Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jude Law. That is a wicked psychological thriller. Don't bother watching it if you're homophobic though; leave it to the grownups.

    What Dreams May Come...that was a good one. Total stream of consciousness here, but that reminds (for some reason) of Eternal Spotless of the Spotless Mind. Maybe I just saw 'em around the same time, but I loved that one too.

    Office Space is a pretty freakin' funny movie...

    I'm always up for a new film and this thread has given me some ideas. Seems like there are too many comic book adaptions and digital cartoons about talking animals the last 5-10 years or so. It gets old.

    Huge Kurosawa fan here. Someone mentioned him earlier - can't recommend his stuff enough - Ran, The Seven Samurai, etc.. Also Miyasaki - Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, etc.

    Yes indeed, the pure scope of those battles is amazing. Kurosawa has a great minimalist sense of composition. I have mixed feelings on CGI...at the time, Jurassic Park really blew us away, but bad CGI is the worst. Give me a guy in a rubber monster suit any day...or stop motion...

    Another great director is Werner Hertzog...his stuff with Klaus Kinski is intense. I particularly like Fitzcaraldo and Aguirre, Wrath of God. They used to show that stuff on IFC all the time...not so much now.

    Looks like we got similar taste in films as well as music Heatmiser - love both Office Space and the Miyasaki films. Spirited Away etc are just great for complete escapism.

    Last film I watched was Infernal Affairs - I knew the Departed was based on it, but didn't realise the extent to which the film was simply lifted from Hong Kong and dropped wholesale in America. Probably just about enough difference visually to warrant the remake.

    Someone metioned that earlier in the thread. It's excellent. Very different to the usual animations, a bit darker, and scarier for the kids. Timur Bekmembatov, who made the Night Watch movies, was the executive producer on it, and anything he touches seems to turn to gold IMO.
