I have not yet seen The Jerk - it's on my list. I've seen plenty of clips and jokes from it though; enough to know I'd probably really like it.

If you like Gene Wilder I hope you've seen Young Frankenstein.

More recommendations that have just come to mind:

The Princess Bride - hugely quotable but, more importantly, massively charming and highly enjoyable.
Annie Hall - well, a lot like the above I suppose, and yet nothing like it.
3:10 to Yuma - beautiful and gripping cowboy film. Yes.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

I saw Man on Wire the other day, and I really enjoyed that. It's about a Frenchman who did a wire-walk between the World Trade Centre towers. He's a fantastic, energetic character and made a really interesting subject for the documentary. Good film.

Like Terranigma I expect I have a list as long as my arm, so I'll just put in a few of my favourites off the top of my head:

The Lives of Others - a German film about secret surveillance before the fall of the Berlin Wall. It sounds boring but it's absolutely engrossing, really edge-of-your-seat thriller stuff. I mean "thriller" in a vague Hitchcock way by the way, not Michael Mann!

Wall-E - beautiful film about robots. Reminds me of Short Circuit/E.T. and films like that. Everyone should know it's brilliant by now.

Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid - Steve Martin as a private dick jostling against Philip Marlowe and company. Fantastic.

I've seen Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid and Man On Wire. DMDWP was just great, while I thought Man On Wire was one of the best documentaries I've ever seen, alongside Bowling For Columbine.

You forgot to mention Starship Troopers, only the best sci-fi movie ever made. I'd like to introduce you to it's cult following, i'm the
president, cashier and only member. When we're not watching Starship Troopers we like to watch the fifth element. Both of which comes highly recommended to all of you.

I didn't include Starship Troopers because I've never seen the film, although I do plan to at some point soon. Same for Fifth Element. Damm it, I just realised I forgot to put Logan's Run on my Sci-Fi list. Fantastic film

Has anyone ever seen "Pan's Labryth"? It's the best adult fantasy film ever. It's subtitled so unless you know Spanish, you'll have alot of reading to do but it's really worth it.

If you're into anime you might like Animatrix. It's the Matrix execpt anime style. If anime is not your thing and you're looking for a great film I would recommend the film One Missed Call (the original Japanese film dubbed in english). You'll never look at your cell phone the same way again.

Up is quickly becoming one of my all time favorites. I've seen it 3 times in the theaters already.
If anyone's looking for a great drama with some brilliant action in it I have to recomend Cinderella Man. It's about a boxer (Jim Braddick I believe) who starts making a comeback during the great depression. Best boxing scenes I've ever seen in a film.

WALL-E is one of the great movies of our time, and probably one of the best sci-fi movies I've ever seen.

And as for Sci-Fi, I recently saw Deja-Vu with Denzel Washington. Fricking brilliant. And I've always loved Minority Report, as far as sci-fi goes, it's one of the best out there.

If you're looking for a documentary, I saw Expelled which is pretty interesting. It's about why intelligent design shouldn't be shunned in the scientific community. Also, Radiohead had a documentary done about them back in the late '90s when they were really huge that's incredibly well done. It's called Meeting People is Easy.

I like a lot of movies.

I like Citizen Kane and the works of Alfred Hitchcock, particularly Vertigo. I'm also a big fan of Akira Kurosawa (A True Japanese Legend) and his friend Ishiro Honda (Ok, maybe Honda isn't the classic director Kurosawa is but he still did the classic that is the original Godzilla film, among others)

"Let's Scare Jessica to Death"

This is an old fashion creepy ghost/vampire story from the early 70s. I'm not a big fan of most modern horror films -- they lack that spooky feeling.

EXPERIENCE MORE.... Arcade-quality graphics, awesome sound, "turbo-charged" game play, exciting TurboChip games... It's the incredible Turbo Genesis 64 Entertainment SuperSystem Experience. There's more fun, more challenge, and more excitment ready for you today!
