I am bored and thinking about renting a movie. Any suggestions?
Before Night Falls
Boys Don't Cry
Welcome to the Dollhouse AND Happiness
I'm at work and I'm gonna watch Godfather on DVD.
vench <---okay fine, it's Part 3 but I haven't seen it in a long time.....
Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
i just watched BLOW vcd, whta a great movie
Just not in one night, or you may kill yourself... powerful films.
I'll second that... very funny...
And if you haven't seen Grosse Point Blank...
i woudl suggest memento if in case you havent seen it yet
so confusing though, but im sure if i wasnt so tired i would understand it better.
either way so compelling...
In no particular order.. well, yeah, in order of when they came to mind... whatever...
Back to the Future pt1
The Breakfast Club
The Great Escape
Dancer in the Dark.
Even though it's so depressing, I can watch this movie over and over and over and it makes me feel good. Although, I'm odd.
Otherwise, Sister Act Two -- You GO Lauryn Hill!
And the obvious nod to Showgirls.
-Go Nomi Malone-
state and main.
kicking and screaming.
waiting for guffman.
rushmore and/or bottle rocket.
"Brown Eyed Girl"
"Cry, Cry Again"
Those are just a few of my favourites. Haven't found them out on DVD yet.

'the cook, the thief, his wife, and her lover' is really good if you're looking for a movie on the f*cked up side of the spectrum
Why not? Happiness is hilarious. I laughed my ass off during that!!!
Welcome to the Dollhouse left me speechless afterwards.
Powerful is good.
man i was in the lobby getting popcorn and i missed the death blow!!!
what did you think about checkmate? or rochelle-rochelle?
just rented Possible Worlds last night.
started off with a murder where the victim's brain was stolen - then led into the poh-lice trying to solve the murder while the victim's life was replayed.
the victim was living multiple lives in different parallel worlds.
the ultimate 'what if' type situation.
very interesting and thought provoking.
i liked it.
if you've watched Memento then i suggest watching Following. Same director/producer/writer/(iono) - very good flick about a guy who chooses to follow people around. he gets into a situation that leads into trouble. very well played out.
"why don't you just tell me the name of the movie you want to see....."
vench <----loves the reverse peephole
following was slow and put me to sleep.
i must congratulate blockbuster for displaying the dvd case and such a wonderful description of the film. i took it back the next day and got a credit for another rental after trying to watch it twice and being bored out of my mind. memento was fantastic and fun to watch while following was just brutal...
i have to ask what you enjoyed about following? i gave it a chance and it just didn't work for me.
The Life Before This.
Canadian cinema at its best.
i thought the script portrayed a really tight storyline.
I'm trying not to ruin the film for those who haven;t seen it but it's impossible.....:
i didn't realize that the two storylines being depicted represented the story of the same individual -- tying that together for me was a big part of that movie for me -- but beyond that what really made this movie so enjoyable for me was how seamlessly the whole story fit together -- i like when a script finds a way to make everything end so cleanly.
This is probably a bit late, but oh well.
If you have seen Momento, check out the director's first film "Following". You can get it on DVD at Blockbuster.
Following is a bit of a sleeper at the beginning, it takes a while to get into it. the slow beginning brings you into the way that the main character is feeling. not much going on in his life, not much going on in hte movie. once he starts getting involved with his followees then things pick up.
as in Memento the director really does a good job in placing you in the head of the main character. slightly confusing you with splitting the time frame, giving you something to watch for. and the end ties everything together nicely.
permanent midnight...just a thought.
