A Scanner Darkly 2006, R)
Princess Mononoke (Mononoke-hime) 1999, PG-13)
Akira 1988, R)
One of the greatest anime films of all time, forget everything you think about pokemon yugioh and the other shit americanized saturday morning crap, this is classic anime and a classic film. It created the original post-apocalyptic mega city scene that is found in so many other films and somehow manages to contort years and years of long grpahic novels into a single film that whilst confusing, set the stage for anime in america, and set a new standard for anime everywhere.
Donnie Darko 2001, R)
one of my very top favorite films of all time. its just.. everything peices together. so many scenes seem detached on their own but slot in perfectly with the music or other little bits. I LOVE the music in this movie. 'Manipulated Living' is the music we hear when donnie slips further into insanity and it admirably freaky. im very proud to say after watching it alot, and navigating the wierd ass webiste I actually UNDERSTAND the plot of this fim. seriously.
Almost Famous 2000, R)
High Fidelity 2000, R)
Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy 2004, PG-13)
Blade Runner 1982, R)
Final Fantasy VII - Advent Children 2005, PG-13)
ok so I love final fantasy, but this is still a great movie! the plot follows right on from the game and assumes you have cleared the whole thing AND understood a VERY complex plot. i you havn't, you may get a bit lost here. still, the music for this is spot on. the action is incredibly fast paced and uses the lack of realism in the series to its advantage with epic matrix beating moves that are slick and stylish. clouds divide between his love for tifa and his friends and the guilt he feels for the death of Aerith is very obvious but in no way less moving for those who have seen the infamous death of aeris scene. I will always love this film for the nostalgia and for its action
Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within 2001, PG-13)
Howl's Moving Castle 2004, PG)
The Fifth Element 1997, PG-13)
brilliant science fiction in a world that seems so vividly real. this isnt shiney sci fi, this is sci fir with real people really living in it amongst an epic story, and this goes further to make the charachters more lifelike absurd and entertaining than all the brilliant acting that does go into it. from the tiniest details to the most epic space ship, this film is packed with all the markings of a classic. everything from humour to action in one of my favorite films!
The Matrix 1999, R)
The Matrix Reloaded 2003, R)
The Matrix Revolutions 2003, R)
The Animatrix 2003, PG-13)
Crank 2006, R)
a completly over the top ultra cool action fest injected with comedy often revolving around just how far fetched the senario is. this film is brilliant fun and extremley well done. it knows exactly what it is and dosnt shy away from it. it may not be deep, but its definatly entertaining. -And isnt that what films are meant to be about?
Wayne's World 1992, PG-13)
Wayne's World 2 1993, PG-13)
