Suggest a Film

Use the comments here to suggest a movie. Details are nice, like a year or a director, or an imdb/Wikipedia link.

Don’t worry if you think I must have already seen it. I may well not have. The worst thing I’ll do to a suggestion is disregard it.

    You’ve never even seen Die Hard 1? [Ed. Yes, pretty sure I’ve seen the first one, but there’s a series at stake here] Das imprazible. One of the best action films ever made. You can move that to the top section now.

    Equilibrium (2002)
    Salt (2010)
    Total Recall (The Ahnold version)
    Battle Royale (2000, Japan)
    Did we watch the other two movies in the Lisbeth Salander series? [Yes, we were drunk, and they weren’t that good.]
    Paranormal Activity 2 (I doubt you’ll watch more than one, and the second is superior to the first)
    The Crow (1994) [Seen it]
    War Games (1983)
    Highlander (1986) [Seen it]
    Reservoir Dogs (1992) [Seen it]
    The Game (1997) [Seen it so many times]

    And…hmm, documentaries? How about Girl 27, Countdown to Zero, The Assassination of Dr. Tiller, or Craigslist Joe.

    If you’re going to be watching dumb action movies, they should at least be pretty. So I nominate Pacific Rim (2013).
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1663662/

    Some others, not sure how many of these you’ve seen/I’ve suggested before:
    The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0029843/

    Dallas Buyers Club (2013)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0790636/

    Moonrise Kingdom (2012)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1748122/

    If you’re still looking for Easter films, I have heard that these two are good:

    The Robe (1953)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0046247/

    Quo Vadis (1951)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0043949/

    Also, how do you plan to get your hands on a copy of Cavalcade? That’s the only Best Picture winner we have never been able to see, because it just about doesn’t exist on DVD anywhere. Scarecrow?

      Scarecrow does seem to imply by their website that they have Cavalcade. I might have to check it out.
