    thats a pretty diverse lineup there Wes.

    Dawn of the Dead is my favorite zombie movie.
    i want to be trapped in an abandoned mall full of zombies,,, and get to beat on them with baseball bats and run over there bodies with golf carts.
    that movie is fun..

    where you been man?
    you needs to post some new shit pronto..

    a few more

    A lot of films I really like have already been mentioned. Here are a few more I think are worth checking out:

    The Reflecting Skin
    A disturbing film by Philip Ridley about a little boy thinks his neighbor is a vampire. This gorgeous film was made to look like an Andrew Wyeth painting. It isn't on DVD as far as I know. Check it out if you find it on VHS. I would love to see them release this widescreen on DVD.

    The Man Who Wasn't There
    The Coen's offbeat take on film noir. Excellent script and characters. Plenty of great plot twists. Gorgeous black and white cinematography by Roger Deakins.

    Heavenly Creatures
    Still my favorite Peter Jackson film. Inventive camerawork and direction, great script and performances. The longer, original NZ cut is the only version out on DVD right now available in widescreen. The shorter, international cut is Jackson's preferred version (I like it better, too) but it, unfortunately, is currently only available in pan and scan. (Write Miramax!)

    Seconds
    This John Frankenheimer classic from 1966 is like a feature length version of a Twilight Zone episode. Features great creepy black and white cinematography by James Wong Howe. Its kind of a sci-fi /thriller /drama about an old bank president who pays a secret organization to get his youth back.

    Following
    Chistopher Nolan's 16mm feature debut is a great example of no-budget guerilla filmaking. I personally liked it better than its larger budget followup Memento. Great twist ending.

    A Sign From God
    Greg Watkins' quirky indie comedy loosely based on real life experiences of frequent collaborator Caveh Zahedi. About an eternally optimistic indie filmaker having a really, really bad day trying to keep it together with his girlfriend. If you like this, you might also enjoy these Zahedi/Watkins collaborations: "A Little Stiff" and "I Don't Hate Las Vegas Anymore"

    Henry Fool
    Hal Hartley's strangely funny story about a garbage man who is inspired by an ex-con to write poetry. Not currently on DVD, but you might find it on VHS.

    One Hour Photo
    Robin Williams put in a suprisingly creepy performance as a one-hour photo developer who develops an obsession with a suburban family. Mark Romanek directed this unconventional thriller which features a really excellent visual style.

    cool thread.

    I'd have to go with:

    Silence of the Lambs
    Hannibal
    Red Dragon
    SE7EN
    Fight Club
    Snatch
    Virus (awesome gory robots.)
    Tears of the Sun
    Black Hawk Down
    Saving Private Ryan
    Full Metal Jacket

    (edit)

    Oh and Pi. it's about a mathematician who, i guess, wants to find all the numbers in pi, and then he starts to take speed and other drugs to keep himself awake, then he starts hallucinating. like there's a part where he sees a brain sitting on the subway tracks, and there's a train coming. then, he pokes the brain with a pen, and then he's inside of the train. then he pulls out and he's on the tracks and it's closer. creepy.

    Hey. A freind of mine just made me watch really good French movie called "Le Pacte des Loups" or "The brotherhood of the Wolf." It's a sort of monster movie that takes place in pre-revolutionary France . A royal Taxidermist and his native American partner are trying to hunt down a creature that's been terrorising a country side. The story might sound familiar but it's very original and full of really strange twists and a great creature design...and Monica Bellucci.

    here's the website.
