Strange, none of you mentioned "Good Will Hunting" - its one of my favourites

Matt Damon, Robin Williams

No use describing the plot - just see it - its about a genius.

Has anyone seen High Fidelity? If not, then do. It's something all of us can relate to

And SLK, Good Will Hunting is one of my all time favourites What a movie!! Have you seen As Good As it Gets? One of Jack Nicholson's finest

Speaking of pure cinema, has anyone seen 'To be or not to be' by the famous 'history of the world' director/actor mel brooks ?
No, but History of the world had me ROFL!! I automatically assume you are a fan of the Monty Python series?

Saw As Good As it Gets for the n'th time yesterday. Its a masterpiece. A classic if you will. I can watch it n^n times. Rarely comes a movie where you find each and every character in a movie portrayed and enacted so well, and that goes for the little dog in the movie as well. Some of the dialogs are burned in memory for ever. Like when the receptionist asks Jack Nicholson how he writes women so well, he replies, "I think of a man, and take away reason and accountability." Brilliantly delivered!
Another time, when Jack Nicholson is on the verge of going over to Helen Hunt's place, his gay neighbour encourages him by saying. "The best thing going for you is your willingness to humiliate yourself."

Classic.

By the way, if Amitabh Bachhan was trying to copy Jack Nicholson's rude-ish act in Cheeni Kum, then i have to admit that the so called best actor in Bollywood is not a patch on Jackie boy.

This Is Spinal Tap completes 25 years in March this year. There is an interview from VanityFair with David, Nigel and Small, and the director of the mockumentary, DiBergi. Really awesome!

I am a huge fan of Al Pacino, always been. I saw Ocean's Thirteen a week ago and was majorly let down. Had to watch Godfather, Scarface and Scent of a Woman this week-end to restore my faith in Al.

Add to it Devil's Advocate, Insomnia and Insider...actually pretty much anything pacino has done ( - Gigli) is a cinema buff's delight.

I dont know if too many consider "Shakespeare in Love" as a classic but I absolutely loved the movie. The dialogues are beautifully written and Gwyneth Paltrow is fantastic.

Indeed a truly beautiful movie. Thank you very much for the heads-up. I'd have most likely never have known about this movie otherwise.

As you said you just cannot put this movie into any specific genre. It is so deliciously a dark, romantic and raw chills-down-your-spine kind of movie that I just could not sleep yesterday night after watching the movie.

It is simply great how the movie ends with the cycle (of 'life') starting all over again -- new place, new protector, another ring to cherish.

There are 4 deleted scenes here:
I think at the very least, they should have left the romantic scene in the movie, just to further firm up the relationship in our minds.

liked all of them in the list. but this one is my favourite.
Alice braga was hot then and hotter now.
The same director has come out with a movie last year
Blindness (2008)
Kind of like "Lord of the Flies" with adults. You will know what i mean when you see it. I liked it, but it is not to everyone's taste. A bit too real/honest/direct for most people(even if the setting is fictional)

@hydra- glad you liked it. looking forward to your recommendations.
@shuvd-saw Oldboy- loved it! will look for the other 2. thanks.
