City of God is a movie that everyone should see. ;-D ;-D ;-D


City of God was one of the best and most violent movies I've ever seen..

I swear someone dies in every seen.

If you can stand subtitles and like gangster/action this movie is unbelievable
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I'd say Gladiator or The Shawshank Redemption.

I agree that City of God was superb. I thought I'd be unable to sit through a movie in another language, but I was completely wrong. Even listening to their attitudes while talking while reading subtitles was powerful...

Anyway, here's my 1-10 in order.

1. LA Confidential
2. Memento
3. The Usual Suspects
4. The Godfather
5. American Beauty
6. City of God
7. The Godfather Part II
8. Traffic
9. The Jacket
10. Vanilla Sky

Some good movies I've seen recently that I'd recommend are Magnolia, 13 Conversations About One Thing, and 21 Grams. The first two are very powerful stories about life, basically, and 21 Grams is sort of like that, but also employs the Memento method of scrambling all the scenes together. It tells the story of people that are interconnected from a car crash. In addition, it is also quite specifically emotional...oh and there's a nice extended Naomi Watts topless scene that y'all will enjoy.

Without question it's

other favorites would have to include

The Usual Suspects
Monty Python----The Holy Grail
Surviving the Game...horrible but great
Old School
Blade
MIB
Caddy Shack
American Pie


Those are great's other than the obvious Godfathers and such

I love war movies and comedies.

(In no particular order):
The Patriot
Saving Private Ryan
Band of Brothers (miniseries)
Team America: World Police
Old School
Van Wilder
Wedding Crashers
American Pie

I also like Bad Boys (1 and 2), the Bourne Identity/Supremacy, and I agree with BigHort that Se7en was a great flick.
