SkarcoreUK,
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

<i insert an emoticon od 'applause'>

This is a film with the efforts poured in the scripts. Discerning audiences would notice that.

Anyone watch "The Last Life in Universe?" An interesting title tho.

Zhang Ziyi and brilliant should not be put in the same sentence. She's basically doing what Bai Ling is doing, albeit on a more low-key level.

Yeah! Why am I putting her name in the same sentence with Magie Cheung and Gong Li? Hahaha...i agree on your statement that she is doing something metaphorical as Bai Ling!

But friends, she is able to win American's heart that it's hardly to penetrate by other Asian actresses/actors! So, i would think ZhangZiyi is 'brilliant' in Filming Industry... anyway, her performance in 2046 is rather good.

If you want to become 'above-average' film-audience, take out all the prejudgement and any values of you before you watch a film!

You really didn't get my reference to Bai Ling, did you? Bai Ling is a media wh*re.

Excuse me, what gives you the right to pass that sort of judgment on me?

5: Being John Malcovich- Weird film...

I know this film was highly rated and lots of people love it, but I found it almost unwatchable. Thought it was a really stupid movie and pretty boring. But I guess I'm in the minority.

It's funny how people either really liked or really disliked Being John Malkovitch. Personally, I thought it was brilliant - so full of imagination with great dialogue. But I know a few people who swear up and down that it was one of the worst films the ever saw. Oh, well - at least it gets people talking!

I have to agrre with tway...Being John Malkovich was brilliant, as was the follow-up Adaptation, with Nichloas Cage, among others.

Probably my favorite movie of all time, which virtually nobody saw, was "Club Paradise" with Robin Williams, Peter O'Toole, Twiggy, Jimmy Cliff, and most of the cast of Second City TV. Not a deep thinker-type movie, but good fun, pokes fun at some tourists, pokes fun at corrupt government officials, and has a great soundtrack, not to mention being filmed in Port Antonio, Jamaica.

Second place: "Water", with Michael Caine, Branda Vaccaro, and Billy Connolly. The dying days of a Bitish Crown colony in the Atlantic. Notable for the ending appeal to the UN for independence. And a great parody of Texas oilmen, environmentalists, MP's, and mercenaries.

And come on....Pirates of the Caribbean. Johnny Depp, 'nuff said. They are filming #2 and #3 right now. Sure it's fluff, but so what. I like to watch movies for the entertainment (or escapist) aspect, not necessarily to be challenged mentally. If it is entertaining and challenging, so much the better.

Thats why I put down my "favourite" films, being those which can be shallow, or stupid (not that I think my personal faves are) but are really enjoyable to watch. And my personal, "best" films, being those that challenge me, take an interesting line on a subject, or are generally just constructed brilliantly.

Oh, and over Being John Malcovich- I can kind of see where the people who don't like it are coming from. But then I remember the excellent concept, casting, plot, cinematography, acting, humour, effects & ending and I begin to wonder whether we are all watching the same film or not...haha

As far as not liking "Being John Malcovich" goes, like I said I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority. But I think one thing is pretty consistent in regards to this movie, and that is that people either Love it or really don't like it. No middle ground on this one.

GHANDI...watched it last night, again.

THE KILLING FIELDS...most people have watched the movie but put aside another 2 hrs for the Director's Commentaries (if you rent the DVD) as he walks you through all the movie scenes. Excellent perspectives!
