I read your post.  Thought you made some quality recommendations (the prestige, blood diamond... enjoyed them both).  

Now, Pan\'s Labyrinth...?  Sure it looked great.  But was the story that good?  Watched it a couple times, and both times all I felt was \'MEH\' at the end.

Since you liked The Prestige, how did you feel about The Illusionist?

jumping in this topic......not quite as good as the prestige, but still a good movie.

I enjoyed The Illusionist. I also tend to like a lot of Edward Norton\'s films.
Love many, trust few and don\'t be late.

that was actually my post, not radicalrich\'s haha...

but as for your questions/comments...pan\'s i thought was mezmorizing, mostly becuase of the visuals.  Yeah the plot wasnt amazing, but sometimes i enjoy movies because they are innovative, and PL certainly was.

I didnt see the illusionist, but my roomate who has the same taste in movies as me saw it and said it was very good, but not as good at the prestige.  I plan on seeing it eventually.  Its funny because Christian Bale and Edward Norton are both in my top 5 favorite actors.  (i forgot to mention american history X also)

I think Edward Norton may be the best working actor these days.  Hasn\'t done anything mind blowing lately, but when looking at his entire catalogue.

and yes, I enjoyed the Illusionist too.

I love Edward Norton and was absolutely let-down by The Illusionist. Weak. I\'m surprised you enjoyed The Illusionist and didn\'t like David Gale.

Quote from: Whathefunk;165324
classics:
easy rider
deer hunter
clockwork orange
apocolypse now
blue velvet

recent favorites:
i heart huckabees
life aquatic with steve zissou (or anything from Wes Anderson i.e. Rushmore, the Royal Tenembaums)
science of sleep
mulholland drive
stranger than fiction
closer
finding neverland


I have very similar taste to Whathefunk. I am a huge Wes Anderson fan.
Nobody I know has seen Closer and they always shrug it off. Phenomenal acting, great flick.
Stranger Than Fiction was so good, so original.
And I too liked Science Of Sleep a lot.

I hope you\'ve seen Annie Hall jocelyn. I hope everyone here has.
