Braveheart is the big one, followed by most of Oliver Stone's work; I've only seen Talk Radio, Any Given Sunday, World Trade Center, W., and U-Turn.


After watching those films, how could you possibly have a particular urge to see more Oliver Stone films?


I am not ashamed of anything, mwahahah - except having not seen these next films:

The Passion Of Joan Of Arc - Bought it and haven't gotten around to it yet.
Slumdog Millioniare - I'm in central Ohio, argh
The Death Of Mr. Lazarescu - Can't track down an easy DVD copy.
The Great Escape - Supposed Hollywood 'classic'. When I see it I'll know whether or not to remove the quotations.
The Day The Earth Stood Still - Same, althoug Mr. Wise's involvement is encouraging.

Very curious to hear what you think of this one. I saw it a couple of year ago and it's one of the best films I've ever seen.

As shameful as it to say, Rob, I have never seen a Dreyer film (!). I want to see the above, 'Ordet' and 'Day Of Wrath' most of all, although I hear 'Vampyr' is transfixing as well. I think I will be having a new director to feed on in the upcoming months :mrgreen:

Way too many to count, but two movies I really regret having not seen until now are Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T.

Pulp Fiction.

Don´t know why. Every time I start to watch, I either lose interest or fall asleep because of a long day.

The Shawshank Redemption.

Hopefully it'll live up to the enormous hype when I finally get around to watching it.

Dreyer features heavily on my journey!
Passion of Joan of arc is a masterpiece and sits at no.17 on the top 1000
Ordet will be with me soon - it's at no.34

There are many, but right now I remember The Godfather, and Blade Runner (I'm reading "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" in preparation).
