I quite like Malice in Wonderland and The Men Who Stare at Goats. Art School Confidential is quite similar to Cashback in some ways. The plot's asinine but some characters and some scenes are great.

There's a series called Orphan Black that I've watched all of the first season of. I first saw it on iPlayer, at first I thought it was really just naff but after an episode or two I was quite hooked and definitely looking forward to season 2 (April 2014, apparently).

Further, if you've missed it, The Bridge (Swedish/Danish) is really excellent. I wouldn't bother with the remakes.

Lastly, if you've not yet watched it, be sure to look at the US House of Cards (on Netflix). That was really, really good as well, definitely on par with the British original in several respects.

Operation_Endgame_poster_1[1].jpg
153261532615326
More or less straight-to-DVD movie Operation: Endgame is something my dad had in his huge stack of copy DVDs that we picked at random to watch and I thoroughly enjoyed it. That said, to this day I still call it "Project Endgame".

It has my favourite ever movie murder in it, someone uses the top part of a paper shredder on someone's face.

The story makes almost no sense and can be boiled down to "super secret American governmental organisation simultaneously plots and battles terror and only employed fucking weirdos and now has to be shut down".

I highly recommend it.

I actually preferred Waterworld (I think someone told me The Postman was called "Dirtworld" in production, they're certainly two of a kind). It's a movie out of time, feeling like one of those coke-addled 80s action movies a la Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. It has some of the most absurd plot/logic holes of any movie I've ever seen but I still love it.

Foreign film fans, I really recommend the two Brazilian 'Tropa de Elite' titles. They're better than City of God imo, and many other more famius titles to boot.
The director of them is in charge of the Robocop remake, which is why I'm highly optimistic for it.

I can't recommend The Raid enough. I went to see it at the cinema with absolutely no idea what it was just because my mate invited me and didn't know it was an Indonesian film until I got there. The story is basically identical to the recent Judge Dredd film except everything about it is a million times better. At least a million.

Starts off fairly interesting and sets the scene and then someone pisses the main character off and he just fucks absolutely everything up. If you like watching little Oriental blokes kick the fuck out of each other - or even if you don't - then this film will give you a massive stonk-on.

Dunno how well known Ben Wheatley is among you lot, I certainly didn't hear about him before but I'm glad I did. Low budget British films that don't feel cheap.
Kill List - Horror/thriller, really fucking good
A field in England - Basically 5 English Civil War soldiers in a field, it's like a psychedelic slice of 17th century England

I can't believe I forgot to mention Generation Kill. It's one of the funniest and saddest series (7 eps total adapted from a nonfiction book - it features at least one real person playing themselves), about the US Marines in the early days of Iraq 2003.

Import/Export has been stuck in mind since i watched in on Film4 over a year ago.
It's got this dark feel to it and is a little nasty psychologically with the sex scenes. The parts in the nursing home are just strange to watch too, even though i used to work in one myself. It's a subtitled jobby, but a damn fine film in my opinion.

A TV film on ITV 14 years ago called Bostock's Cup. I think most of it has been uploaded to YouTube, but apart from that it's hard to track down.

It's the best sporting comedy I've seen, which admittedly isn't saying much. It's a shame that ITV haven't repeated it since.

I don't remember that but I remember their fake cityscape you could look out on with little model buildings, and their replica Coronation Street, and their pretend houses of parliament.

I remember a room you could look in through a window and they had a "ghost" in there. It was an actor who looked semi-transparent. I assume there was another pain of glass and you were looking at the reflection.

I'm the lad who said I would do a post about foreign gems, and then immediately forgot about it. Anyway, I'm back. I can't really be arsed going into detail, so i'll just give brief descriptions, but they are all films I've really enjoyed.

>Kontroll
Ticket inspectors on a Hungarian metro. Really difficult to sum this film up briefly. Fucking brilliant though.

>The Host
Korean monster film. Think Godzilla and cloverfield, but 10x better.

>The Chaser
Koran thriller about a dirty cop turned pimp trying to establish who is responsible for the disappearance of several of his girls.

>La Haine
24 hours in a Parisian ghetto with 3 young local lads. Set amidst police brutality and riots.

>Memories of Murder
Two rural Korean cops and a special detective from the capital investigate a series of brutal rape murders. Their crude measures become more desperate with each new corpse found. Based on a true case.

>Ran
Classic Japanese epic. Based on Shakespears King Lear.

>Outrage
Japanese crime drama. An internal yakuza dispute gets a bit out of hand.

>Martyrs
Disturbing French horror.

>Timecrimes
Spanish time travel murder thriller thingy. Don't watch any trailers, they all spoil the film.

i'll post some more later, If i don't forget.

Fantastic list, the brief synopses are exactly what I like as they don't lead you to expect too much of the film, and often what it actually delivers is vastly different from all the expectations you still formed based on that brief synopses.

I've seen Jar City. I didn't think it was a great masterpiece but it was pretty enjoyable.

>13 Assassins
An elder samurai accepts a suicide mission to assassinate a well protected Shogun lord renowned for his evil deeds. He recruits 11 other samurai and they pick up some vagrant along the way, making 13. Beautifully simple film. Fantastic characters, even better battle scenes. Clearly inspired by Seven Samurai but, what 'men on a mission' film isn't?

>Man Bites Dog
Belgian mockumentary. A film crew follow a murderous thief on his daily rounds.

>The Bandit

I'm watching the NBC series 'Dracula'. I'm on episode 2, it was a bit shaky to start with but it seems to be picking up quite well. Worth a look.

I made a thread on here a while back asking if anyone remembered this series and what it was called. Nobody had any idea what I was talking about. I fucking loved that show.

Er, yes I did lad, but I got bogged down with stuff and stopped. I got up to ep5 I think. I will continue when I have the time some day when I'm not awake at 2am. Thanks for recommending it, it is very good. The one with the psycho CIA interrogator guy was very good.

I must not've seen that thread because I went on an odyssey a few years ago through every private tracker and torrent site available trying to find a copy of it, I remembered it so vividly and loved that series so much.

I just watched Los Cronocrímenes (Timecrimes) and it was pretty good.
The end is a little predictable but it's definitely "up there" with Primer in terms of intelligent handling of time travel.

Just to note, the Timecrimes uses an immutable, causal-loop theory of time, compared to Primer's multiple universe time travel.

I also recommend The Lives of Others but it's very long.

Can you believe they're fucking remaking it. It's an slow-moving indie film with no music and set entirely within a radius of about 1km, how is Hollywood going to butcher it?

I didn't know they were planning on it. I guess it's just so they can appeal to a wider/richer/illiterate audience?

Just watching The Guard, by someone who also did In Bruges; a writer or director or something I don't know. It looks good so far anyway.

You seem like a foreign film connoisseur so I'll give you some of mine:

Das Leben des Anderen (The lives of others) - Very moving story about a man who works for the stasi

Das Experiment - Based on the Stanford Prision Experiments

Lola Rennt (Run Lola Run) - You have 30 minutes to get €250,000

Goodbye Lenin - This is hilarious. A woman has a stroke before the fall of the Berlin wall. Any surprise could trigger another stroke. So they have to pretend that they still live in East Germany despite westernisation.

Der Baader-meinhof Komplex - About a German terrorist group from the 70s I think.

I'm going to watch Kontroll this weekend, hopefully.

You've just reminded me of a German language film I watched. Gunther Grass' Unkenrufe/The Call of the Toad was made into a film in 2005. It's one of those films that covers lots of topics, but at the core it's all about a German man and a Polish woman who fall for eachother around the time of the fall of the Berlin wall. Together they attempt to open a cemetery for displaced WWII survivors but their good intentions are corrupted with the eastward spread of capitalism.

... Fuck, I've made it sound extremely boring, but it really is a satisfying piece of work, I promise. It features Hitler's motorcade squishing stuff, too.
