Quoting Jared 虫的傳人

And u forgot to mention that American kid who got whipped by us for "expressing his creativity".

The "caning" ... ouch. I always knew Singapore was NOT the place to be messing around in. When I was there it was like a $10,000 fine just for chewing gum.

Titanic.(come on, admit it. U liked it when it first came out eh?)

I admit it. I even downloaded the song for 99/cents. I almost shed a "tear" everytime I listen to it.

Just remembered another movie I really liked. It's a BBC low-budget production called "I capture the castle" and I totally enjoyed watching it. Has anybody else seen it?

I never even heard of it. But based on your recommendation I'm adding it to my list. :)

Frankly, I thought he really deserved it. But that's for another topic.

Back to topic. I forgot to mention Raging Bull. That is one hell of a movie!

How many people like mysteries? Has anyone besides me seen "Donnie Darko"? Makes you think, for weeks. And then you are bound to see it for second time :). I highly recommend 'Directors Cut', that explains so much more of complex plot and is half an hour longer too.

I was gonna rent "Donnie Darko." But I can't find the "director's cut" here in the US. Seems like a pretty weird movie (something about a fantasy rabbit or something like that).

I Wonder if I should wait until I can find the "directors cut" on dvd or just rent the regular one???

It's weird alright :), that's what makes it so special. Giant rabbit and time travel and boy with problems. Go ahead and rent the regular one, if you enjoy it, then you really want to see it sometime later. Maybe then there's DC available.

I second you on BOTH counts Summer! :)

Here's agood movie that's more Travel related. I saw it in the theatre and then also bought the DVD.

Himalaya (1999) : I'd recommend this movie to anyone interested in the cultures and scenery of the Himalayas. It also has an age old storyline which really helps to keep one's interest throughout. The old traditional -vs- the new. The scenery is truly stunning! All the actors are actual natives (not actors), and several of them are actually excellent. The movie is mostly in Tibetan (with subtitles of course).

Himayala

Has anyone seen this movie or heard of it?

It was made and directed by swiss adventurer and photogragher Eric Valli.

Hey Pardus,

Why did you become "Eccles"?

You're still Phillip though, that's good.

I didn't read all the posts, so I don't know whether these films have been mentioned or not; here's my list of favs:

Trainspotting
Snatch - Brat Pitt was incomprehensible in this movie as a gypsy
Reservoir Dogs
Fargo
Shallow Grave - excellent black comedy starring Ewan McGregor before he became a big name
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Ravenous - the best "horror" movie I've ever seen!

Enjoy.

Incomprehensible, Brad Pitt in Snatch? I have been told that he does an authentic Gypsy accent by Irish people here, can anybody confirm?
He sounds a bit like Lil j, actually: "Wanna buy a dag?"

And talking about incomprehensible, what about Begby in Trainspotting. All I could make out in his dialogues was f^&**.
