Haha good call they are pretty similar. Glad you liked it.
“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”

City of Men
Fantastic movie. Christian Bale is fantastic in it.
dont forget the sequel: the rules of attraction
(another oustanding flick)
Not the fastest movie as far as plot development, but totally worth the time investment.
Escanaba in da moonlight.
Starship Troopers is a great franchise and definitely worth watching. The first two movies take a lot of liberties with the M.I. but they're still very entertaining. If you like watching Marine-like soldiers vs. Bugs, they movies are right up your alley. I also recommend reading Heinlen's novel that the movies were based on to get a more complete picture of the M.I. and how they train. (The book is on the reading list for 3 of the 5 U.S. military academies.)
i just watched the 3rd one a few days ago, solid movie
M.I. is the Mobile Infantry. They're the backbone of the ground forces, while the Fleet hangs out on their capital ships in space and mostly transports the M.I. from planet to planet.
I loved the first Starship Troopers, but assumed the others would probably be crappy. Now, I will plan to check them out.
let the right one in (swedish haven't seen american yet)
180 degrees south (documentary)
dude, 180 degrees south is AMAZING
I'll second City of God and add:
A Serious Man
Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worry and Love the Bomb
The Brothers Bloom
45 post, no Transformers 2?
Best. Movie. Ever.
Porn typically has a more cogent plot.
Knowing Dark Blue a little bit, this may be a great movie for him.
Leprechaun in the Hood
And Inside Job are two excellent documentaries.
Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, Bernie Mac.
Zach Braff directed, it's quite fantastic.
Zack Galifinakis: Live at the Purple Onion or Grandmas Boy.
Dennis Hopper at his finest in this one. I love Cronenberg movies as well so you might want to check out Videodrome, Scanners, and The Dead Zone.
It's on youtube, it's so awful it's good
In Bruges. One of my favorite's and relatively "indie"...nominated best adapted screenplay (I think that was it..?) a few years back
an excellent movie. a hitman seeking redemption. another goodie.
Link to the list of one person's 50 most insane at the top.
I'd suggest Buckaroo Banzai, personally. But tonight I'm going to watch Hell Comes to Frogtown
Thankskilling and Troll 2
I'd second Thankskilling. Fantastic movie! ....well...okay, maybe not.
Blade Runner is great, but it's very VERY slow-paced.
Also, Akira is great, but you should read the books as well to get the whole picture.
im also an indie buff, though havent seen muich in the past year.
consider my advice if you enjoyed any of the following main stream movies:
inception, lucky number slevin, three kings, or syriana.
king of california
a guide to recognizing your local saints
children of men
and here are a few more:
Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus
new york, i love you
Is that as good as everyone says? A lot of people have been saying that may be the best one yet.
One of the less known Kilmer movies is the Salton Sea. It's one of my favorite movies and not well known.
Also prolly seen it but The boondock Saints.. It didn't become popular until a couple years ago.
Speaking of Val Kilmer, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a pretty underrated movie. If you like Robert Downey Jr he is also in it.
Let's stay with underrated Val Kilmer movies for 600 Alex.
Wonderland from 2003 is enjoyable. Kilmer plays the late porn star John Holmes. It's based on the real life 1981 murders on Wonderland Ave in LA:
Excellent indie movie starring Paul Giamatti, one of my favorite actors, and a kid named Alex Shaffer, who is in his first movie and was cast because he was a champion prep wrestler. Great script, funny, great plot. Written and directed by rising star Tom McCarthy. Just saw it on Wednesday night at an indie theater in DC.
just don't get the dubbed version, which is done so poorly it distracts from the movie. The subtitled version is one of the best, most influential "shoot em up" movies ever.
Holy heck, somebody doesn't like the suggestions in this thread.
Mr. Nobody is probably one of my 5 favorite films of all time, and it's generally unknown. Made and released in France (still can't buy the DVD/Bluray in US yet) but it's in English and stars Jared Leto and Dianne Kruger. It's made by Jaco Van Dormael, one of those indie guys that makes a film every 10 years or so. It's a trip.
If you are into thrillers at all (not horror) you should check out a movie called Exam. I had never heard of until I saw it on the netflix instant queue and was very pleasantly surprised how good of a movie it was.
It's able to be thought provoking and exciting enough without blood being splattered everywhere. Plus its not very well known.
You will never see this as it is way too far down the thread, but I propose to you not a movie, but a resource by which you may never wonder this again.
I recommend highly the website Criticker (.com) - You enter what you think of however many movies you want (At least 10, most enter their entire history). Then, it keeps on file the ratings of thousands of others. It finds people who like the movies you like, and makes a handy list of recommendations based upon movies they have seen that you haven't.
More than recommendations - it gives you a probable score for whatever movie you run across based off the weighted scores of those most similar to you in taste. I've found this to be very accurate.
It weights movies by tiers - you rate 1-100 however you will, and it breaks them up by your top 10% (This is brilliant, as some people are overly kind, and rate movies that bore them an 85 while every movie they like falls in 98-100 - whereas others are harsher critics, the kind of people who never give a score above 70, unless it's directed by Kubrick - with the percentile weighting, it doesn't matter how harsh or feathery people are.
You can even get your friends to sign up, and it will find movies that are acceptable to you both.
I am not affiliated with them, I just think it is one of the best websites around. A brilliant idea that is well executed to the benefit of all movie fans. I hope the pool of people will grow and thus increase my own pool of knowledge from which to draw.
you will love the classic, Hoop Dreams. It's been on ESPN Classic for the past couple days. A great movie of triumph and struggle of two inner city kids trying to make it to the D1/NBA level. One thing that you don't see is the AAU involvement which is the norm for our society.
