Requiem for a Dream is good.

Just watched Cube and Cube 2: Hypercube. Someone on here recently asked about claustrophobic feeling films. I'd recommend these.



I think The Fountain is a masterpiece of cinema. That movie clicks on every level for me. I remember seeing it in the theater on the weekend it was released and these two gay guys crying and bawling their eyes out as the credits rolled.



How about that fantastic score by Clint Mansell.. "Death Is the Road To Awe"


Yep, that score is spine chilling. One of the best pieces of music I've ever heard, and it's a big part of the films impact. My wife and I stopped at a music shop and bought the soundtrack CD immediately after leaving the theater actually.

Great movie/score. I've had the OST for years.

Never seen Road To Perdition. I generally can't stand Tom Hanks post-Forrest Gump, so I've always avoided it.

Missing out on a solid film and an excellent score by Thomas Newman.

Philip K Dick's Electric Dreams was disappointing. 2 good episodes i think. A combination of mediocre writing (for tv), directing, costume design, production design,... dragged it down.

His writing deserves better.


That's disappointing.... still gonna burn through it this weekend probably..

Fountain is by far the most perfect blend of score and visuals of any film this century. Haunting

About a 10 second portion has been my ringtone for 5 years

Oddly been a huge fan of The Fountain OST without ever seeing the film. (Hail Mansell) but I guess I'll correct that this weekend. Never really dug Aronofsky outside of The Wrestler, which I would credit as being twice as good as any other flick of his I've seen.

I use it as a demonstration in my theater room. I would pay good $ to see it again in a repertory run.

Good call. It's impossible not to feel a rush of emotion during the climax of the film and climax of the score at the same time. Pure catharsis. Spine chill cult eternal!


There Will Be Blood gives it a run for it's money in the score/imagery department as well.

Hope you dig it, as mentioned, that score works with the film down to the very last detail. Movie may be a bit confusing on first view as it tells a singular story across many centuries, but just try and enjoy it for ambitious themes it presents.

Also, there are a ton of musical and visual callbacks to The Fountain in Noah as well. I love it.

can't really watch anything with Hugh Jackman in it, nothing against gay dudes but ones who play the public like fools and marry/breed are the f'n worst, but the OST is great.

Some stuff I saw recently:

McCabe & Mrs. Miller (cool 70's anti-western)
Cannibal Apocalypse (fairly average cannibal film not set in a third world country)
The Blob (1988 remake, cool effects)
Troma's War (not as good as I was hoping)
Assault on Precinct 13 (the original Carpenter masterpiece)
Run Chrissie Run (80's Ozploitation thriller, nothing like the trailers wanted to make it out to be, but still cool)
Fair Game (another 80's Ozploitation women's revenge film, really good)
Road House (the classic, complete with mullets and cheesy fight scenes)
Serial Mom (satirical take on suburban life and the morbid fascination with violence that bubbles under the everyday niceties)
Ryan's Daughter (David Lean's 1970's epic masterpiece)

So, I just got over the flu. Did nothing but watch Netflix for a few days…saw 18 movies!!! Here’s the list:

--13 Cameras (really creepy performance by Neville Archambault)
--1922 (based on Stephen King novella, very well done with excellent acting by Thomas Jane)
--Beyond the Gates (cool 80’s throwback…can’t go wrong with Barbara Crampton)
--Blood Glacier (interesting idea…could have been better, but the story was cool)
--Creep (loved it – Mark Duplass was absolutely perfect)
--Creep 2 (not as good as the first, but still great)
--Darling (very strange – some sick scenes)
--The Devil’s Candy (surprisingly good – some music by SUNN O))), which was a nice surprise)
--He Never Died (with Henry Rollins – liked it a lot - cool story, but Henry isn’t exactly a great actor)
--House on Willow Street (awful – totally sucked)
--The Open House (excellent Netflix movie, with a bleak ending)
--Radius (much better than I thought – unique story)
--Raw (French, with English subtitles - crazy story)
--The Ritual (nothing at all like the book, but still great)
--Satanic (should have been terrible, but I really liked it – no happy ending here)
--Shelley (sloooowww…but creepy and kept my interest)
--They Look Like People (journey into insanity – well done)
--The Windmill (not bad for a modern slasher flick)

I also watched the last 5 episodes of Stranger Things season 2, and the first 4 episodes of Between season 1.
