Recent faves of mine include: Locke, Her and the Nick Cave dock 20000 days on earth. Also new kids flick Paper Planes was good, if you have kids 8-10 years old.
Best of luck with the film fulleighty
Thanks Geo. Getting people to see Australian films is tough, in fact, any film is tough. Price, convenience, quality all factors. We got good reviews at Toronto and in Sydney Morning Herald so here's hoping. Was a blast to see our very Australian film in front of a largely French Canadian audience. Great to see how much translated, and how much needed translation! Thanks

You can't really go wrong with 50s-60s technicolour Hitchcock.
Some other cool contemporary films:
- Babel
- Thin Red Line
- 21 Grams
- Magnolia
- The Watchmen
- Amores Perres
- Bobby
- Into The Wild
Anything with decent characters, and some existential commentary...

You will enjoy True Romance - Gandolfini does some good work in this film - in fact - I think it is this film that put him on the map.

Anyone seen The Couselor? It got shocking reviews so I stayed away but I caught it late last night. It is pretty dreadful but there was 2 scenes in it that blew my mind. One with Cameron Diaz and the windshield of a Ferrari and the other Brad Pitt in London. Crazy stuff!

Has any sequel of a movie been better than the original

My opinion the only one that comes close for me is Terminator 2

Reckon it is better than the original Terminator
There is a few that jump to mind.

Terminator 2 is definitely better
Godfather 2 is definitely better
Back to the future 2 is better IMO

all of which are part of a trilogy, so maybe not technical sequels?

There are prbably some others out there as well.

Back to the Future was utter garbage , you can't possibly class it as a movie

Almost as bad as Teen Wolf :brick:
