What can I say? That scene is hard hitting but it didn't make me shed a tear. Kim did. Maybe it's the difference in character arcs.

Only just discovered this thread. I watched a German film called 'The Golden Glove' recently. It's not 100% horror - more grimy. The critics more or less hated it but I thought it was directed really...

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 Comedies Countdown

Forrest Gump is not a very good film anyway, so lets hope it's nowhere near this countdown.

Re: Low budget revenge thriller name search

The first half of your post sounded like the Mexican film 'New Order'. But it doesn't tie in with the rest of your post.

Yeah I really liked it too. Not normally the type of film I like either, as supernatural stuff isn't my thang. But it was done really well.

Re: The most important question ever asked...

Re: Better Call Saul...whatcha think?

That was awesome. I don't often get emotional in this show or Breaking Bad, but Rhea Seahorn on the bus broke me a little. Excellent episode.

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 Comedies Countdown

I can't believe Ghostbusters is this high. Is it really hilarious? Is it technically brilliant? It's a nostalgic trip for sure, but top ten of all time?

This one, I really don't get.

Some truly great films in this HoF. With 'A Moment of Innocence' being the pick of the bunch. It's one of the best films I've ever seen.

ah no, that's sad. Love von Trier's work. He's a proper boundary pusher. Hope he continues despite this.

It's pretty cheap on Blu Ray. I got it for 10. I've seen the first couple. Kieslowski was a master director.

Two brilliant debut films. I'd go The VVitch, but only just.
