    All dubbed movies do... It is as good as a dubbed movie gets though. :( I watch a lot of dubbed movies because my favorite movie genre is martial arts/Kung Fu

    Probably my favorite right now is Y tu Mama Tambien. Minority Report and Road to Perdition were pretty good too, but Y Mama was raunchy and I like raunchy. :D

    My sister has the y tu mama tambien sountrack. :D she listens to it soooo much. That confuses me because to my knowledge it is in spanish.... she confuses me though :).
    Before I said Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and that the matrix was right behind it. But now that I think about it. The matrix and LOTR are both behind it. You cant forget LOTR.... ;)

    Just thought of another one: Man Bites Dog. It's a French film in black and white and subtitles about this film crew following this eccentric serial killer around as he goes about his business and they eventually get caught up in the act with him. Very funny. Violent, but still funny. :)

    Look it up, you'll thank me. And, clichéd or not, "Casablanca".

    Great movies.

    Heres my list:

    Requiem For A Dream
    American Beauty
    Shadow of the Vampire
    Amelie
    Signs*
    Minority Report*

    *both of which i already own on DVD

    If you havent seen any of these movies i highly reccommend paying the 4.86 to rent em at blockbuster. Or in the case of the last two, take a trip to Long Beach, Long Island on a Friday between 12:00 and 4:00 and pick them up for 12 buxx.

    Hell, there are just too many. I am addicted to buying DVDs. That will have to be the next thread, how many dvd's do you own, I'm up to around 100. Of course this could then digress into how many HP your car has (mine has one, and HP 2100 ;-) and then it will get down to ***** size and that will just be then end of macrumors as we know it. (just kidding all)

    Office space is good but it gets boring/bad after watching it for the second time.

    My fav is still CTHD (as I posted yesterday :D) - but one thing that is annoying about it is that it puts you in a sad/depressed mood - since it is such a depressing movie. Li Mui Bai (I think I spelled that correctly) dies! Sorryy for giving away what happens people who havn't seen it :p . I would like to add Iron Monkey to my list because it has some great fight scenes (and a little girl plays the little boy).

    And I almost forgot the Once Upon a Time in China series. Too much wire-fu though...

    Storm Riders was the movie before Man Called Hero. Basically same director, also had Ekin Cheng, Sonny Chiba, Kristy Yang, and Aaron Kwok. If you liked Hero, you'll also like Storm Riders
