Boondock Saints

Let me start by saying that this movie the first AND second are REALLY good! :cool: I know its more about the Catholic religion and may I say i am not Catholic BUT This movie has action, It has humor and as well as family love. I love how the brothers can argue BUT yet when it comes to saving eachother it means risking it all for the other person. I love it! ^_^

What movie do you like? and why? :fireball: :party:
 
"Boondock Saints" is probably one of my favorite movies of all time. It was so good I didn't want to watch the second one cause I knew it could never compare. Another movie that is similar in a lot of ways is "The Book of Eli". It's missing some of the humor, but is every bit as good.
 
One of the most underrated movies of all time! The second one didn't have the same luster as the first but it was enjoyable.
 
1 was awesome, the 2nd one I could barely make it through the whole thing. American Psycho is my favorite movie of all time probably. I love psychological thrillers with some dark sarcastic humor to it.
 
The first one was legendary the second was rather disappointing. American Psycho is filled with quotes I try to use on a regular basis!
 
haven't seen the second one yet, mostly because the first one is one of my all time favorites! Not sure if i want to see the second........though i probably will
 
American Psycho is awesome. The sequel sucked balls however.

The "sequel" has nothing to do with the first one though. The first was based on a book by Bret Easton Ellis, the second one was just garbage the studio threw together to try to cash in on the first. I love the first one though, one of the most quotable movies of all time. I didn't even watch the second one because I knew what it is.

As far as Boondock Saints goes, I didn't like the first one, way too cheesy. Haven't seen the second one.
 
I saw the second one at a friends house while visiting. I rarely watched movies, but I enjoyed this one. There were a lot of one liners that I would glady wear on a t-shirt. "It's not rocket surgery" is probably one of my favorites.

Boondock Saints rocked more than many things which also rock, rolled up together in a large burrito of rockin awesomeness and then slathered with cheese and awesome sauce, eaten off the taut belly of a fillipino... Woah. Sorry, got side tracked there.

For those that liked the American Psycho movie- read the book. The difference is night and day. The movie is about a tenth as
amazing as the book is.
 
enjoyed BDS - not my fav movie, but entertaining, and humorous. The joke in it was pretty classic too - ("I'll have a coke")

I told it to several friends of varying minorities and they all thought it was hysterical. The best part of that joke is that you can interpret it several ways - my black & mexican friends thought it was a humorous commentary on racist white people.

As for movies I like, there's way way way too many to list and all for different reasons.

Bubba Ho Tep - this movie is brilliant. It's a pseudo B-Movie with Bruce Campbell doing a terrific Elvis. It's a tremendous plot - about Elvis Presley getting road-weary and tired of the spotlight, so he makes a deal with an Elvis impersonator to switch places for a while. The real Elvis blows up the contract accidentally and the fake Elvis dies - the real Elvis then goes to a nursing home where he encounters a soul sucking mummy. What could have been a horrific pile of crap ends up being a miraculously touching story about regret and aging. It's funny, it's thoughtful and Bruce Campbell gives a tour de force unlike anything I've seen from him. I'm a huge Campbell fan dating back to Evil Dead, but this is a whole other level. I highly recommend this underground film.

Reservoir Dogs - epic, saw it in the theater in Humboldt Co.

which of course led to Pulp Fiction - people walked out. My g/f & I thought it was hysterical.

Kill Bill Pts 1 & 2 because I LOVE spaghetti westerns and kung fu movies and these were the ultimate for each.

Snatch is one of my favs and a total classic. Love the pace, love the humor, love the characters - just an all around clever, fun movie with great action, plot and dialogue. This is easily in my top 10 favs.

There's another kinda oddball flick called Shadow of the Vampire that I really loved - kinda kooky with Willem Defoe (who's the gay detective in Boondock Saints) - the film is about the making of the 1st great vampire movie "Nosferatu" and the plot goes that they hire Defoe to play the vampire, but he really actually is a vampire who's killing people throughout the movie. There's one great scene where they wrap filming for the day and they're standing outside. A bird or bat flies by and Defoe catches it, bites off the head and sucks out all the blood and the director says, "What a method actor!" - classic.

Big Trouble in Little China is another favorite of mine.

God I could go on for days. So many great movies over the years...I'll post more later I'm sure.

oh - Raising Arizona was another classic. And pretty much every Coen Brothers movie. Miller's Crossing is the best mob movie ever (yes, better than Casino or Goodfellas, both brilliant and on my list of all-time greats) - Fargo was awesome, O Brother was awesome (thought not their best), No Country for Old Men was awesome, Blood Simple, Barton Fink, The Man Who Wasn't There, The Ladykillers

And of course, my all-time favorite movie, The Big Lebowski - perfect in every way.

If you like those you'll probably like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas!! One of my all time favorite movies and not because i'm an ex professional gambler who have a many fearful and loathing nights in Vegas.
