Heat is always a good classic!

Hard Boiled and The Killer are two great films! John Woo and Chow Yun Fat colabos!

Isn't that the basic storyline for most Robin Williams films? Apart from Flubber. Which is a classic!

Best cyberpunk/body horror movie of all time.

War film about the Nazi Germany invasion of Belarus during World War II and the mental disintegration of a young boy caught up in the war. Powerful stuff.

Panty snapping kung-fu madness with a tremendous story. It's four hours long but don't discount it for that - watch it over two or three days instead.

I enjoyed Insidious i thought it was one of the better horror films to come out in the past year or 2 but the one thing that messed up the whole film was when that Darth Maul looking character came along, he took the excitement away instantly..
