I watched Stir Of Echoes today.... Again... After a long time... Good thing, psychologically really convincing.... Something similar to Ring, but I fancy SOE more... Probably because of the kid and because it's more psychological and less of a thriller...

I'd like to see Sideways, too. It gets released here this Thursday. I hope I can find a theater where the original version is played. I hate dubbed movies.

Yesterday I saw Mulholland Drive. It's still my favorite film.

I've seen it two times so far. Up to a moment I seem to partly understand what's going on, but then...in a second I get totally confused  :wacko:
Probably I need to see it a few more times  :D
Lynch is sick :D

The beauty of typical Lynch films is that they leave room for multiple interpretations. I like that. It's very subjective filmmaking. David Lynch himself sometimes doesn't know what's really going on. He just grabs ideas and translates them to film.
I've seen MD six times so far. The first time I understood what was basically going on. I wasn't confused. I was in awe of the emotional mindtrip the film was. It's one of those movies where you can discover new layers every time you watch it. I love it.
If you think MD was sick, try Eraserhead if you can find it somewhere.

Yesterday I saw Michael Mann's 'Thief' from 1981. Mann has such a great eye for slick night cinematography.

Mmm, saw Cradle of Fear some days ago. I know it's old already but I've never felt any need to see it so far. What made me was the fact that I've been watching the video for Scorched Earth Erotica almost 24/7 and that ignited my interest :D
Actually, there are some really funny scenes ( I like the one with the fake cat  :P  )

I never heard of the movies you mentioned. What are they about?
Cradle of Fear sounds like a horror flick to me.

I couldn't help and saw Blade Runner again yesterday. I love the fact that 95% of it's frames are more appealing to me than the best frames of 95% of all movies I've seen.

Cradle of Fear is a horror, starring Dani Filth as The Man :D
The others from Cradle are also there but with secondary roles

I checked out the Cradle if Fear trailer on that website. I don't think this movie is for me. I'm not into B-slasher-movies.

@ Nordlys
Yes, it is worth seeing!  ;)  (imo)

Have you seen Saw?
It`s a very good movie; With a dead body laying between them, two men (Whannell and Elwes) wake up in the secure lair of a serial killer who's been nicknamed "Jigsaw" by the police because of his unusual calling card.

Hehe, Cradle of Fear is only for the biggest Cradle of Filth fans...  :D

It depends on your personal taste. Dark City is a philosophical sci-fi movie. It's a little like the first Matrix film with less stylised action. It was made earlier than the Matrix and got released in 1998. The director is Alex Proyas who also did the first Crow movie and later I Robot. The sets are really dark. The style is not as gothice as in the Crow. It's rather film noir style with old cars and buidings. Except for few minutes the whole movie is set at night. I really love the film. The only thing I find a little annoying is that everything gets explained too well. I prefer rather subtle hints over straight in-your-face explanations. I like to make up my own mind on how certain plot elements work out.

I must agree ever sinc i saw Dark City in the theaters it has always been one of my favs.  If you liked dark city i would also reccomend Equilibrium.  It was a straight to DVD but it is a very intersting movie.  Along the lines of farenheight 451.  Plus Christian Bale kicks some serious ass.

Equilibrium wasn't straight to DVD. It was a very limited theatrical release. I know that it was shown in theaters in Luxemburg. I liked that movie. However, I found it slightly pretentious, and I didn't like the ending. There are no happy endings. Some of the sets had written "tight budget" all over. I'm looking forward to Kurt Wimmer's next project, a Vampire flick called Ultraviolet.

The last movie I saw was Underworld on HD-DVD. It had great gothic cinematography which looked especially beautiful on high definition. I even liked the story though some of the writing was rather TV standard which was annoying. The pacing wasn't quiet right, hence the movie dragged at times. Some of the acting was poor. I still have some hopes for the sequel.
