I saw a thread like this at reelviews.net and I thought it was pretty cool. Just talk about the last film you saw prior to posting, what you thought of it, etc.

I saw Cast Away (2000) about a week ago. I really enjoyed it; it was very compelling and believable.

Isn't that the movie about the man that crashes on an uninhabited island?

I last saw Empire strikes back.

I can't believe I'd never seen Star Wars before. These movies have really got it all! I want Yoda to be my pet

Yep that's the one.

I've still only seen one Star Wars film, and I can't remember it at all :P I should watch them, but I'm not into sci-fi as much as your typical INTP (I prefer fantasy)

I used to be more Fantasy, but Sci Fi is growing on me.

Which is awesome, because I have so much to catch up on! It's like a never ending list of movies-you-should-watch.

I already have a never ending list of movies I should watch . I have only recently discovered that there's a world of film outside of action flicks and such. My recent film-viewing has included the likes of Memento, Dr. Strangelove, Fight Club, The Life of Brian, Reservoir Dogs, and many more incredible films

My friend said Iron Man 2 was bad but enjoyable, and that Robin Hood was ok but not enjoyable, hehe

The only movie from that list I'd like to see too, is Dr. Stranglove, and then only because I can mock the stupid americans.

Everyone should watch 'cloudy with a chance of meatballs'. That is the best animation movie I ever saw. My mom just bought it for me for when exams are done.

I'm such a kid.

Akira.
Still a great film, even though the dubbing is a bit crap in places. (I prefer watching subtitled anime to dubbed because the translation doesn't need to be altered for the timing to fit)

I actually saw Iron Man 2 today, it was rather stupid. It didn't really have a great plot to it, and the action/script was dull and unexiting. It was a bit too draggy, and the climax wasn't as great as one would expect from a drawn-out script. Oh yes, the comedy was too cliche' and the audience annoyed me whenever they laughed at it

I watched Stalker (1979) last night. It was really quite interesting. It's a Russian film, with English subs, by director Andrei Tarkovsky. The title is of course referring to the Russian meaning, of 'guide'. The STALKER games are related to this film, and anyone who has played them will find connections.

It's supposed to be deep, but slow. I found it deep but not all that slow really. I need to see it again, as it had a lot of philosophical stuff about life etc. Visually, the film was amazing. I loved the slow cuts, the atmosphere, and the Zone itself. I had been recommended to see it with the original mono soundtrack, as opposed to the 5.1 dvd one, and the soundtrack was quite sparse (which is how I like it).

The last film I watched was Jumper back in February (I think?). Weak storyline, complete lack of believability and just a general glorification of the "fuck everyone else, do what's fun without care for the consequences" mentality so prevalent in society today. I was off work sick and bedridden but still found some energy to get angry at how shallow it was.

Hardly going to encourage me to watch (suffer) more...

Into The Wild.
I wasn't too impressed with it, but it had a nice quality I liked. Not such a great storyline for a movie though. I loved the way it was filmed.

"the little shop of horrors" (with the the) original version from the 1960's with jack nicholson and shit. wasn't a musical.

i was just in the musical for my high school, so this was super weird. also i may or may not have been a little high at the time, making it super duper weird. jack nicholson's character made no sense. and the dentist wasn't abusing audrey. so that made me sad.

also, "audrey junior"? wtf? no, it's audrey TWO, bitch. get it straight.

(though it's kind of funny since this is the original after all... ah well.)

'99 Fight Club. Tyler Durden-INTP and ENTJ? has relation with the theory? or INTJ-ENTP?

I'd say quite possibly INTP and ENTJ. What about Marla?

##### Only 1 1-F.
If it is so then it reflects a personality's liking for its shadow. Sadly, it implies that ENTJ>INTP.

Marla is ExTP? I really don't know.

Just saw 'Pi' (1998), overall... I liked it okay, but I'm still pondering. So far, the more I think about it, the more I like it. So it has the potential to be a favorite in the long run.

Impressed by:
1. Good use of black and white.

#### Tempestas

Donnie Darko. And just before that, Primer. Both amazing movies, they really make you think. Especially Primer, and it's even more notable for its small budget ($7,000). #### RubberDucky451 ##### Prolific Member Memento, I love it. I can't wait for Inception. #### echoplex ##### Happen. I think it was The Wolfman (2009?). Had some entertaining moments, but overall nothing really sets it apart from most other omgmonster! horror movies. I actually don't know why I continue to watch these kinds of movies, seeing as I've (mostly) hated the genre for years now. I suspect I enjoy seeing unimportant characters disemboweled/decapitated juuuust enough to justify it. It's porn, basically. Just saw 'Pi' (1998), overall... I liked it okay, but I'm still pondering.

Very effective atmosphere that conveys the feeling of obsession/paranoia well. It does this on a small budget($60,000), too.
3. Has the longest movie title in all of cinema.

I just thought this deserved recognition.

Memento, I love it. I can't wait for Inception.
Memento is one of my favourites! Now I'll have to read what Inception is.

The Wolfman was alright; I loved the setting and just everything visually :smiley_emoticons_mr but it was agonisingly predictable.

My latest movies watched:

Blue Velvet (1986): Verrrry strange. Actually probably less strange than other Lynch films I've seen, but still way strange. Good film, I enjoyed it.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994): Great film, lived up to its reputation. I hate prisons but this is one excellent film.

Shutter Island (2010): Great atmosphere and setting. Liked the start and middle a bit more than the end. Became a bit too familiar towards the end but it was a good film nevertheless.

Law Abiding Citizen (2009)
Some aspects of the latter half really dropped the movie's overall quality. Therefore, I didn't like it immediate after seeing it. However, after remembering the solid first ≈2/3 and thinking more about the ending, I really liked it a lot more.

I am surprised to see such bad reviews of it. It's not perfect by any means, but I think that it is much better than what the reviews describe. It is a great criticism of the modern U.S. legal system.

Just watched Intolerable Cruelty (2004). It was funny and amusing. Certainly entertaining

was about a guy who just got out of a mental institution after being there for a really long time. Sounds rather typical, but it is a very different feeling sort of movie. i would recommend watching it.

Inception.

A must see.

Can't stop thinking about it...just beautiful.

#### Cavallier

##### Oh damn.
I also just saw Inception. It was visually stunning and you get to see lots of handsome men in pin stripe suits. However, that isn't really a good reason to see the film. You can get "visually stunning" out of Avatar and the plot of that movie was horrible. You can find lots of pin stripe suits from Gangs of New York. The pacing however made the movie for me. It was masterfully handled to the point of being a central motivating force in this film. It is rare to see a movie that isn't simply an awkward fumbling in it's pacing these days. Dicaprio has become a capable actor. He pulls off a tortured hero powerfully but more importantly he manages his role with subtly. There is no hamming or extraneous silliness. The humerus moments are carefully placed so that the audience can catch it's breath before plunging headlong into the next psychological crescendo.

Damn. This was a good movie. I think it will be the best movie I've seen this year other than Shutter Island that is.

Inception is one of the best movies I've ever seen. I haven't even had time to analyze it because I've been so blown away since I went to see it on Friday.

Despicable Me - the film's actually pretty funny. There's a lot of shout outs to pop culture, and its brand of humour is one that can appeal to kids and adults. I'd recommend seeing it with a friend (so you can catch as many references as possible).

Going to watch Inception this Thursday! First night it's in Australia (cinemas at least). I love how much praise is being heaped on this film Can't wait. Been a long time since I've seen an excellent film at the big screen instead of in my bedroom. I think the last one was LOTR: The Return of the King.

Films I've seen since my last post: Vanilla Sky (2001), liked but I prefer my strange films to be strange from the beginning; Primer (2004), watched after it was mentioned in this thread by Tempestas, I enjoyed it but this is the sort of film which gets noticeably better the more times you see it. First year university level physics isn't going to get me to grips with the film on the first viewing. I'll be watching it again, with my dad, sometime soon.

I watched Inception last night.

I'm pretty sure Nolan is a TP, and (N)TPs really seem to resonate with his movies.

I won't go into a full review here, but it was definitely worth seeing and now my brain is trying to puzzle through all the intricacies of the plot... it's one of those that could be worth a second watch, just to get a firm handle on what happened and why. I really enjoyed it.
