    I love movies. i even wanna make atleast one in my life.

    the title of the thread says everything.....just go ahead n tell us about ur fave films. dont let it turn into a poll like thing...its a discussion.

    u can name one or twenty. but do mention films that u really liked n what was special bt them...let us know ur tastes n do recommend some films too....

    here r some of my faves:

    1. usual suspects: this is the most mindblowing film ive eveer seen. its got the smashiest storyline n its told in an awesome way. i really liked the idea of a seemingly weak n dumb guy getting away with a brilliant web of impromptu lies.....verbal kint fooled everyone!
    watch this one everybody!!

    2. the godfather: i just cant get enuf of this one. everyone from marlon brando as the don to the wily solozzo to the reluctant michael...everyones compelling. i like the way michael, who hates the business, ends up taking over. al pacino at his best.....those who havent seen this, i suggest that u read the book before u do. godfather by mario puzo.
    ull have a good good time.

    3. company: oh yeahh baby... ramu rules.....
    this one was cmpared to the gdfather but it was diffrent. it was always sposd to be inspired from dawod-rajan (or was it dawod shakeel) relationship. whatevr....it was extremely well made made n slick. the background score was the highlight of the film n so were the gripping, real performances of the chars in the film....vivek o. was good, but ajay devgan was the real winner.....n yeah the southie comissioner was totally dude....

    4. sixth sense: i was cursing my frends while watccing the movie in the hall. it was boring like hell n i wanted out. but then, after half the movie i realise that the kid was doin a good job n then....came to twist in the end. twisted plots like that make for good cinema. the tormented kid.....was awesome. shaymalan....we wanna more!!!

    5.i can go on and on.......but heres my last one for now.
    DDLJ.....*sigh*..... a good old sugary love story. when i think abt it...i realised that the film had no concrete storyline. boy falls in love with girl. parents object. boy tries to win over everyones hearts. but the way it was treated..eyah thats what made me feel good. im no sucker for goeey stuff ladat but this one is great....all other movies in this genre are shit. hum apke hain was the worst film of all time.

    more coming up later.....

    over to u....

    My Favorite Movie is QSQT... cos it has a sad ending.. that's what happens in real life..

    A strange contradiction is that i hate TITANIC even if it has a sad ending..

    1. Lord of the Rings trilogy - one of my fav stories of all time brought to life (although with a few variations, but still quite true to the book) magically by a brilliant caste and amazing director in a beatiful landscape. what else? liv tyler... vigo mortessen... ian mckellan...

    2. Matrix trilogy - amazing storyline which shook the world. Great action scenes which redefined the meaning of stunts.

    3. Ben Hur - an epic which will never lose out on its magnificance no matter how many new and better movies come...

    4. Godfather 1 n 2 - decent reproduction of another one of my favourite books...

    5. the 6th sense

    6. Terminator 1 n 2 - everyone knows about these two films...

    7. Dr. Zhivago - brilliant movie set in the war period but not directly linked to wars... its about a poet-doctor who is sincere about his job and how his fate changes during the war.

    8. Guns of Navarone - mission : take down the guns of navarone... my first war-time movie and i was really fascinated by it.

    9. Hitler - rise of evil/fall of evil

    10. Braveheart - seems a bit slow sometimes and fast at others... apart from that the movie is quite good.

    well how did i forget matrix.......!

    wht i liked bt matrix (besides the sexy action sequences) was that it was open-ended. i mean u could interpret the whole thing in many ways cuz the makes used a lotta symbolism. reminds of songs like stairway to heaven, hotel cal....

    part one was babe.......but i think 2 n 3 sunk because they were riddled with too many symbolic ideas.. the stunt backfired, confusing everyone.
