Avatar's OK I guess. Not saying anything else on the subject of Avatar, don't want to start any flame wars.

to be honest i didn't really like avatar. i mean it was ok but not all that great. not saying it was bad just not all that.
oh some more moveis: i, robot was quite good but a really good movie was v for vendetta. it is one of my favorite movies off all time Very Happy its definitely worth buying/renting it. in my opinion of course i'm sure there are some people who don't like it and stuff but i loved it!
also black swan was good but very weird(its not just about ballet or anything like i thought it would be its... strange... but its well made and has good actors and everything)
saints and soldiers i liked but a lot of people who i know who watched it didn't like it
inglorious bastards(hope this does not break the no swearing rule its not a bad swear and its the name of the movie)
thats all i can think of right now but there are more

Besides obvious choices like Star Wars and Lord Of The Rings, I love Ridley Scott. Particularly Black Hawk Down.

Also The Untouchables. Great film.

V for Vendetta is OK for me, not great, because I was around when the original comic came out. The comic series went into much more depth on the oppressive world of V and his relationship with the young woman he abducts. There are changes in the storyline between comic and movie which I wasn't happy with. Call me a purist, I guess.

V for Vendetta - Great mystery and action, love the dark subtle qualities the movie offers, keeps you guessing and wondering what V will do next.

Black Hawk Down - Amazing movie, it shows what the soldiers really go through. It's not just action that wars is about, it's about the emotions that come with it.

Saving Private Ryan - How did the soldiers feel about the war? How did they feel when getting shot at? How did they cope with losing friends and family beside them?

Saving Private Ryan is one of my favorite war movies, it shows that soldiers aren't just macho war machines, they're humans. They're scared at times, they're cocky at times, but they know what to do to get the job done. This movie and Black Hawk Down express the one thing that so few people get in this current time about war: Those men aren't out there to for themselves, they're out there for us. They aren't there to protect themselves, they're there to protect their brothers-in-arms. That's it, end of story.

I get a bit deep on this subject.......

Which Sherlock Holmes? They're all pretty good, but some are better than others. The movie from a couple years ago was great. So are the last two TV series, the latest one, still in production on British TV (a present-day Holmes with an assertive Watson who's a combat surgeon fresh from Iraq and Afghanistan - available on DVD in the USA) and the one from the 1990s with Jeremy Brett.

I agree with most of that. Except Transformers, Fast and Furious, and SWAT. I'm kind of a cinema snob, so the testosterone fueled summer action flicks don't do anything for me. Didn't know you liked The Kingdom though. Loved that one. Jamie Foxx's best role imo

Heck yeah. I saw it on AMC one afternoon and fell in love with it. Bought it soon afterwards.

As for Transformers, I only put that one up because it was slightly better than Rise of The Fallen. The first had some semblance of a story and not just pointless explosions and slow-mo's for Megan Fox.
