    3- Cool runnings, very nice comedy, funny and an overall nice movie.

    4- Lords of teh rings trilogy, enuf said.

    5- The Mask, i loved this movie because it was origenal, funny and ahead of its time in gidital effects.


    TV Series:

    1- 24, 1, 2 and 3. They were the most addictive show that i have seen. Great storyline, great auction and very well made.

    2- Friends, most of you knwo it so i dont need to say much.

    If you loved any of the 3 following movies than see the other two, if you didn't like one of them, don't see the other two :) :

    Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
    Hero
    House of Flying Daggers

    Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon is just an amazing film. Great plot, great acting, great cinematography, great fight scenes.

    Hero - Amazing use of color, such an aesthetically engaging movie. Great fight scenes. An interesting plot, if a little odd :).

    House of Flying Daggers - I won't lie - the plot is a bit rediculous, but the movie is amazing none-the-less. Like Hero, this movie has very beautiful scenes. I love the clothing. Great fight scenes.

    And Zhang Ziyi is in all three of them :D!

    1. Fight Club
    2. Fight Club (yes, see it twice, or more)
    3. Jaws
    4. Rocky
    5. Aliens
    5B. Cool hand Luke

    Classics, one and all. David Fincher and Chuck Palahniuk (Director and Author of Fight Club) crafted the most amazing movie I've ever seen. Its one of those rare moments when something seems to be speaking directly to you. It slaps you in the face and demands you listen. LOVE IT.

    Mulholland Drive is a great movie to see. It definitely is a unique movie going experience. You'll either love it or hate it, but you won't be indifferent and it's a movie you won't easily forget.

    Dont mean to sound rude or anythign Hero is one of the worst movies i have seen, the story was nice but could have been delivered much better, i just did not like it.

    Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon one the other hand was a nice movie but i would not call it one of the greats.

    I'd be tempted to say only ever watch the original Matrix. The other two spoil the first one, which was such a great film.

    I'll classify the following as a must see. I've seen it twice and still can't stop thinking about it. Kind of under the radar. I think some people might be put off by a 2.5 hr subtitled movie. I saw it on two consecutive rainy, cold Saturday afternoons about a month ago. Had to drive an hour to get to the theatre too.

    The madness, the suicides, the delusion...

    Der Untergang aka "Downfall"

    I think it was just released in the UK on 4/1. Absolutely unreal. Still can't stop thinking about it.
