    so, let's start something new :hotjump:

    further to DT usual threads, but near to develop an occasion to know u better, guyz :D

    We all know which kinda music everybody listen (damn', this is the reason of our presence on this board).. but I wanna know which movie u prefer

    these are mine:
    "The Green Mile" (..like the drink, only not spelt the same), "The sixth sense", "The Crow", "Dracula" by Bram Stoker, "Blade" (not for the story in itself, but like a lot capoeira, swords.. and Wesley Snipes :lol: ), "Matrix" (great Lorence Fishbourne), "Heavenly Creatures", "Do the Right Thing" (my first Spike Lee joint); "Waiting to Exhale", "L'amant de la chinese du Nord" (Marguerite Duras), "Leon" (*love* this movie), "Kamasutra" (hey, guyz.. it's a dramatic and historical movie, I swear!! hey, u, stop laugh :devil: )

    is time to give u some space to write :)

    I love the cube.

    I would love also to see a very graphical documentary and phicological movie about Jeffrey Dahmer.

    Silence of the lambs and Hannibal are both decent

    Hmmm...

    Best movie ever seen, Fantasia (Walt Disney's). An absolute masterpiece.

    Then... hmm, I'd say 2k1. Then things become quite blurry, but after all u asked which movie I prefer, so I think I even answered more than asked :D

    My favourites are:

    Nosferatu (the old silent version)
    Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (the silent version yet again)
    Mouse Hunt
    and
    Eve's Bayou...

    Recent movies I've seen and liked are The Others and the Dinotopia film on TV. :)

    Hehe, rodents of unusual size... I must see that movie someday. :lol:

    Another interesting question would be which movie would have benefitted the most from a Dark Tranquillity soundtrack?

    My choice: a tie between Down to You and Runaway Bride...... :D

    @rahvin: somebody told me that "sleepy hollow" is a sort of humorous film.. I will give you my opinion asap (hope so :))

    but *everybody* told me that "the others" is a great movie

    @|ngenius: dunno if somebody had posted this thread maybe one or two months ago.. (even later :eek: )

    I love that website... I remember having to do a report on Dahmer once. That website was a good source of information...

    @thanatos: thank you, gonna check it out at lunchtime :p

    @witch: sleepy hollow is humourous, but not in an unintentional way. it relies a lot on irony and a few times there are puns also. i think it's graphically admirable and a paradigm of gothicism , which is funny in itself. :)

    i'm a crimelibrary fan as well... spent many a nights browsing it last year, which partially explain why i scored relatively low in my exams (you know, i wasn't taking msc criminology). as for movies, my favorite ever has to be trainspotting, with harmony korine's kids coming a very second close. best movie seen recently is maybe hannibal, but not because i seriously rate it: it's just i almost saw nothing else.

    Pulp Fiction and Four Rooms by Quentin Tarantino are so funny.
    Memento, Magnolia and Requiem for a Dream are excellent mindfucking movies, especially at 3am.
