Celeon makes a start with "Troy"

Very good movie although it isnt all too close to the Ilias written by Homer.

But it is already three hours long and the entire story would simply not fit into movie length.

Starring :

Brad Pitt as Achilles
Eric Bana as Hector
Orlando Bloom as Paris
Diane Kruger as Helena of Troy http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Have you been asking about "Flags of our fathers" the other day?

If yes, my answer is "NO". Not good.

Good military stuff:

1. The warriors (British - The Bosnia Conflict)
2. Talvisotta (Finnish - The winter war)
3. The Pianist

Good non military stuff

1. Quest for fire (Canadian - not silent but no spoken words)
2. The lawn dogs (American - easy going) something to watch with frau Celeon perhaps?
3. Baraka (Documantary - Awesome camera work)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

If you want to weep for hours watch Requiem for a Dream
If you like crude humour and watch to laugh for hours watch The Aristocrats.

If you like cute and want to get a girl to cuddle up with you rent March of the Penguins

If you like a good historical drama get Thirteen days - its about the Cuban missile crises and is really quite good.


then the others

Usual Suspects
Traffic
Good Night and Good Luck
Capote

Is March of the Penguins a documentary?
- Must have it then.

@ Stabiz

Years ago on ORF I saw what I think is a trilogy but I don`t know weather it is Norsk, Swensk or Dansk.

It`s placed sometimes during dark ages or Viking period perhaps. It`s a tribal matter and I would really like to know the title.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

"Where eagles dare" - good one! I read the book by Alistair McLean (spelling?) when I was 14.
He wrote "Guns of Navarone" too.

One of my all time favorites is "Night on Earth" by Jim Jarmusch telling the stories of five taxidrivers in L.A., New York, Paris, Rome and Helsinki.

Have you heard about "The good German" it is the new movie by Steven Soderbergh with George Clooney. It was released on 15 December and looks encouraging. It is set in post- World War 2 Berlin (so it happens where "Downfall" is ending )and shot in black and white, if reviews are good i will go to see it.This is the linkhttp://thegoodgerman.warnerbros.com/http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f364/Janek73/poster_domestic.jpg

Two of my favourite War films

"Empire of the Sun" 1987

and

"Hubal" 1973

One of the best polish world war 2 movies. Story of an Polish army officer who couldn't accept defeat of his country and took command of his routing unit to lead his soldiers into several victories in irregular warfare. ITs a great story , hubal is a little different from rest of the officers. Poreba shown him as aggressive brave even a little mad major. Hubal even orders his troops to wear polish military gear and keeps military discipline 1 year after poland's defeat.Still havng remarkable successes he knows he cant change the unstoppable doom. Story shows fairly true picture of polish irregular forces in ww2, without much patriotic niceties. Its a story about soldiers duty , his moral obligation- victory or death. Sad, mean but great movie !

Assuming that Das Boot goes without saying, I give you:

Citizen Kane (and not just the first time you see it!)

Pulp Fiction (Tarantino at his best)

Aguirre, the Wrath of God (Werner Herzog & Klaus Kinski at their best)

Downfall (another very good German film)

Sunset Boulevard (the ultimate Hollywood movie)

Brighton Rock (frightening British thriller with an amazing nasty young gangster Richard Attenborough)

Blue Velvet (truly scary)

Dark Star (the best (and cheapest!) sci-fi film ever)

Great Expectations - both the 1946 and 1998 versions are brilliant

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (in many ways an (American Civil) War movie

Afraid I don't agree about 'Troy' - no gods in it (!!!). Read the book. 'Jason and the Argonauts' is much better.

Brad Pitt was OK in Troy, it was just the writers who got the wrong end of the stick. The whole point about Ancient Greek stories is that the gods will help or destroy you. The only god(ess) in that film was Achilles' mother. Without the rest you are reduced to the mindless violence which the original Homer describes, but also EXPLAINS. As the other Homer would say, D'oh!

I agree about The Bounty, best & most under-rated (1984) film version of that story. The Blue Max (1966) is alright, as is Aces High (1976) for WW1 aviation. In The Aviator (2004) you see tantalising glimpses of Howard Hughes' Hells Angels (1930), surely the best flying film from that era?

What's a good WW2 naval movie? The ones about Graf Spee & Bismarck are OK, but perhaps The Cruel Sea(1953) gives a better overall picture of what it was like. Easily the best Titanic movie is A Night to Remember (1958), the di Caprio/Winslett one was for small female children!

Yes I agree, Titanic was another of those Hollywood mushy films - too many of them.

I think if there is a war film with women involved you are going to be in trouble, Pearl Harbour is one of those - let's concentrate on the history lesson first!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

As it goes, the book is even better.
I remember watching the Cruel Sea when I was a child.
Back then the artistic aspect didn`t quite interest me. Then I red a book when I was in high school and I was completely captivated by it.
I`ve only seen a movie as an adult a few months ago and I must say it`s a masterpiece.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

CEL and BOCKHOLT,

I see we all have similar tastes, although I've never gotten into "Lost", mainly because my work schedule has me missing a lot of night TV.

Bockholt. If you like "Blue Velvet" then you really must see "Mulholland Drive" Lynch's last great film. I will also recommend "Lost Highway" I've admired Lynch's work since his TV series "Twin Peaks"...always eerie, creepy and suspenseful. Tons of emotions also. Can't wait for his second season of "Twin Peaks" to get finally released after almost 18 years.

CEL if you like LOST you might also try to get the (now cancelled) HBO series "Carnivale" It is also very Lynch(ian). Great mystery series based in the Depression era of the United States. It also deals with a bit of mythicism.

Another movie, almost as good as "Mulholland Drive" is the movie "Donnie Darko" Both of these movies will require repeated viewings as they are both very "Mobius Strip" like in plot. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I think Lynch is the one of the greatest directors out there, along with Kubrick. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

"Citizen Kane" is a masterpiece...especially after I visited the Hearst Castle in California a few years ago.

I just saw "Joyeux Noel" with Diane Kruger (Loosely) based on the Christmas Truce of 1914...A BIG waste of my time! puke...phhhth...arrrg. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif (<--me and my TV) ...and then http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sleepzzz.gif

I have to agree with Bockholt on "Troy" not really that great a film. I did like "Kingdom of Heaven" much better.

"Pulp Fiction" was good the first time I saw it...but I don't have a great urge to rewatch it like all my David Lynch films. Tarantino lost me after he started his Kill Bill series.

My cousin was in Band of Brothers, though 'killed' in a fairly early episode. He did all the 'basic training' and, when questioned about it, made an interesting observation about soldiers tilting their helmets to the left so that the next guy's spent cartridges don't hit you in the face. He chickened out of the real parachute jump they were offered (he's the good-looking one who reads the Bible and doesn't say much).

For a very, very good conflict movie : BATTLE of ALGIERS (1965). This takes both sides in a terrorist war. Apparently the Pentagon have been watching it a lot recently and it was a favourite with both the SAS and IRA!

And on TV : SOPRANOS...

Poltergeist is german by the way

Polter = rumble, but is also an old word for noisy
Geist =ghost

It describes a type of ghost that is never visible but instead creates strange knocking sounds coming out of the furniture or walls , moves objects or sometimes even throws people out of their beds.

Evil dictators fave movies:

ADOLF HITLER : 'Lives of a Bengal Lancer' (US, 1934)starring Gary Cooper. The Fuehrer often ordered this Northwest Frontier hokum at Berchtesgarten. He was particularly impressed by the scene in which a single Gatling gun holds off swarms of Afghan tribesmen attacking a fort. 'You see how the British run India!' he would say, 'Just a few Englanders rule over millions of natives! That is what we shall do in the East...' Try as they might to explain to him that it was made in Hollywood by, er, Jews, Hitler could not get enough of this film.

AYATOLLAH RUHOLLAH KHOMEINI : 'The Three Stooges meet Hercules' (US, 1963). After a hard day tormenting American Embassy hostages and issuing fatwas, the Spiritual Leader liked nothing better than to relax with Larry, Moe and Jerry (whom he found hilarious). It is thought that this may be because their innocent slapstick movies were one of the few foreign imports that got round the mullahs' blanket censorship of anything involving females not in Islamic dress. He may have underestimated the United States by imagining that the Stooges' antics realistically reflected life in that country.

KIM JONG IL : 'Titanic' (US, 1997). The Elvis-lookalike paranoid ruler of North Korea watches this film in his private cinema at least once a month. Apparently he likes to freeze-frame the scene in which Miss Kate Winslet appears nude and gaze upon her buxom curves for minutes at a time. A famous non-flier, he has ordered North Korean shipbuilders to construct a full-scale reproduction of the doomed vessel, currently being laid down at the Nampo Shipyard. Whether his enemies are working on iceberg technology or not remains classified.

SADDAM HUSSEIN : 'Little House on the Prairie' (long-running TV series). The late Iraqi strongman enjoyed watching endless reruns of this popular tale of pioneer folk. He liked the simple lifestyle (home cooking, chopping wood, shooting bears, etc) and the way Mom and several daughters unquestioningly obeyed their bearded Daddy in Laura Ingalls Wilder's 1935 classic of American literature. During his recent execution he was not, as is often misreported, praying to Allah - he was humming the LHOTP theme tune to himself.
