The Secret Policeman's Other Ball
I think this is the best ever performance of "I don't like Mondays". The musical side of this alone is worth watching it for.

Children of Men 2006,  R)

The Butterfly Effect 2004,  R)
The Butterfly Effect
Just watched this again recently and I still love it. I am a big fan of parallel universes, so that probably helps. But this movie just keeps throwing more and more at you. And I love how every actor gets a chance to show off their diversity. This movie is fantastic.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Silly stuff, but I really do love moaning Myrtle. :D
146
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 2004,  PG)
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
This is where the Harry Potter series suddenly gets some great direction and awesome cinematography. They also never do explain what's going on as well as they do in the book. Hello? Why do these adult people know about the Marauder's map? Oh, you don't need to know that unless you're reading the book. Of course.
147
Wanted 2008,  R)
Wanted
This was surprisingly fun. If you've ever worked in a cubicle farm you'll empathise entirely.

The Fall 2006,  R)
The Fall
This movie was unexpectedly brilliant. The scenery and colours are particularly amazing, while the story is both beautiful and tragic.
157
Slumdog Millionaire 2008,  R)
158
Million Dollar Baby 2004,  PG-13)
Million Dollar Baby
Unexpectedly beautiful.
159
Milk 2008,  R)
Milk
I'm actually quite surprised by the likenesses to the real people. But that's entirely irrelevant. This was a great movie.
160
They Live 1988,  R)
They Live
I can't believe it took me so long to see this. Fantastic movie.
161
Moulin Rouge! 2001,  PG-13)
162
He Died with a Felafel in His Hand 2001,  Unrated)
163
THX 1138 1971,  PG)
THX 1138
Very surprising movie. I was expecting it to look far more dated, but it was really very well done in that respect. The dystopia itself was sort of a mix-up of 1984, Brave New World, Brazil & The Time Machine. The beauty of it was that it didn't hold your hand like most American movies do these days, so a lot was left unspoken or at a loose end. That, and that the human nature shown was pretty realistic, such as panicking when you're about to achieve freedom. The actor didn't go overboard with emotion after bad news is found out - the reaction was exactly as you'd expect from someone drugged up to the eyeballs on stuff specifically designed to inhibit emotions.
164
All the Invisible Children 2005,  G)
All the Invisible Children
I just don't know what to say.

This movie was (aside from a few obvious moments) so real that it made your heart bleed. It made you grip tightly to anything nearby and hope that things would get better for these kids. But you knew it never would.

Oh yes, it's beautiful to watch the kids pulling together and making the best of it. But nothing detracts from the sheer horror of their lives.

How can we fix this? How?
165
The End of Suburbia: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream 2004,  PG-13)
The End of Suburbia: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream
This movie made me re-think everything. A lot is going to change real soon. Most people aren't ready for it.
166
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button 2008,  PG-13)
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Strange premise, but absolutely beautifully done. Loved it.
167
Harvie Krumpet 2003,  Unrated)
Harvie Krumpet
That was a fantastic little film. The animation is wonderful, the storyline makes you think about all sorts of moral and social issues. Plus, there's many a hilarious moment throughout.
168
Le Scaphandre et le Papillon (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) 2007,  PG-13)
Le Scaphandre et le Papillon (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly)
That was incredibly beautiful. The story was pretty amazing in the first place, but the cinematography was also fantastic.
169
Henry V 1989,  PG-13)
Henry V
So, with Shakespeare's script it always had the potential to be awesome. But, Branagh and the incredible cast who wanted to work with him made this film AMAZING.

Just fabulous, really. All Shakespeare fans, history buffs, Francophiles and Anglophiles should watch this.
170
Chasseurs de Dragons (Dragon Hunters) 2008,  PG)
Chasseurs de Dragons (Dragon Hunters)
This movie was unexpectedly beautiful, different and lovely. I want every kid I know to watch it and I'll be happy to watch it with them again and again.

The beauty of the world is very much based on le petit prince, and is just adorable.
171
Breakfast at Tiffany's 1961,  Unrated)
Breakfast at Tiffany's
That was unexpected. Here's a movie reported by many to be great and (shock horror) it was! I love that it epitomises an era while being a lovely movie. I want this movie to play in the background of all my future parties. :)
172
The Color Purple 1985,  PG-13)
The Color Purple
A tragic and lovely story, however the film got a little spielberged along the way and wound up dwelling on the typical American family moments.
173
The Shawshank Redemption 1994,  R)
The Shawshank Redemption
Tragic and human: Smiles in adversity.
174
Star Trek 2009,  PG-13)
Star Trek
There was very little that could have been done better. Absolutely flawless!
175
The Man from Earth 2007,  Unrated)
The Man from Earth
To start with, the acting was a little jarring, but they all warmed into their characters after a while. There were a few moments I thought were a little over the top, but all in all it was a brilliant movie.
176
Lust, Caution 2007,  NC-17)
Lust, Caution
Absolutely stunning, beautiful and tragic. Scenes from this film will haunt you forever.
