[Never mind. I misread the question.]


I think I've only seen 3 movies that have come out this year--Prometheus, The Avengers and John Carter and I think I liked them in that order.

I still haven't seen The Dictator or God Bless America yet, though.

Most hated movie that's come out so far this year?

Just watched God Bless America on the netflix last night was very funny at times but overall pretty meh.

A. Ghost Rider 2. First one was terrible and I loath Nick Cage /puke

I can't really think of other films about college/uni. Looking forward to being educated (how apt).

The Freshman

A Beautiful Mind

Favourite 3 movies set in France?


Bande a part

I really wish I could respond with some ridiculous porn-title, but I have too vivid an imagination to need to pay for that sort of thing, so I'll go with: The Third Man

Favourite movie set in India?

City of God (I was going to link to the trailer but it completely misrepresents the film).

Favourite romantic comedy?


Favorite romantic comedy set where? (C'mon, keep the geography thing going!)


Most romantic "comedies" are so rigidly forumlaic that there's really not much, other than location, to distinguish them from one another. Yeah, every one also has a "gimmick" (dogs, flowers, music, or whatever), but even those are starting to all seem alike.


Poor Kirth, he's too cynical for romantic comedies!

Fine. My favorite romantic comedy that I haven't already mentioned a million times in this thread is It Happened One Night.

Favorite movie set in North Africa?

so... The Killing Fields

Favourite film set in a jungle?


Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, just to piss off the fanboys. I liked it!

Favorite movie filmed in or near your home town or long-term place of residence -- everyone answer!
For me:

Spoiler:
Angel Heart was filmed in Albany, NY, a stone's-throw from Troy. I loved that movie! But it's not really about the Capital District.
Last of the Mohicans takes place in the Capital District and the Catskills, but unfortunately Michael Mann ended up having to film it in North Carolina.
Ang Lee's The Ice Storm was filmed in New Canaan, CT, where I went to high school, and is about the town; he captured the spirit of that place dead-on, for an end result that the film is more depressing than enjoyable.


The Departed, of course.

Taldor

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Tales Subscriber

This Is England

Harry Potter


Altered States in Boston of course since Doodlebug took Departed.

There are some others which are pretty good but this one is one of the better outside of departed.


Tillsammans
Kopps
Arn, Tempelriddaren and Arn, Riket Vid Vägens Slut (released internationally cut down to one movie as Arn, the Knight Templar).

About half the movies in Sweden are made here since around the mid-90s, so plenty of choice for me :)

Really? You don't pick the one where the main character disses a snooty Harvard student by referring to Howard Zinn's History of the American People? I'm disappointed in you, Goblin.

(And both Gone Baby, Gone and Shutter Island kicks The Departed's hiney 'til it's black and blue and is crying for mommy.

Everyone in Boston loves The Departed, Kirth.

And, no, I'm not from Boston, but the only two films I can think of that take place in New Hampshire (Affliction and On Golden Pond) take place so far north from here, I think they're further away than Boston.

Although, I guess, Lowell is closer.

This trailer is better. Really shows off everything great about growing up Catholic and working class in New England.

Hmmm. There are not too many German movies and as far as I know, not one of them was shot near Warendorf or even Münster, so I have to go with german TV movies - to make up for that I chose two, the later could actually be considered a movie since it was shown in some cinemas outside germany.

1) The first Tatort taking place in Münster - while Tatort is a long standing crime show on German TV, Münster Tatort being carried by the 'team', a rather pleb inspector and a snobbish, filthy rich boss of the forensic institute.

2) König der letzten Tage a medieval history drama, strongly inspired by actual events concerning a strange christian cult that came from the Netherlands to Münster, took reign of that city until their leaders met a rather gruesome end at the hands of the archbishops men.

I am still bummed that it seems almost impossible to get that last movie on DVD in Germany...


I'd watch a movie about an Anabaptist uprising.

Upon reading your description, I immediately looked for it on Netflix here in the USA, but with no luck.

It is a great movie, some of the actors (Mario Adorf, Christoph Waltz) are internationally know, still it semms to be almost unknown, even in Germany.

Only movie that I know of that was filmed in my home town (Jefferson City, MO):

Mil Mascaras vs. The Aztec Mummy.

Favorite movie starring a wrestler, athlete, or someone else famous for something besides acting?

Inspired to look again, I found the DVD in a shop I don't knoiw yet, but that will send it to a local bookstore and I immediatly ordered :-)

I'd go with H.B. Halicki in the original (1974) Gone in 60 Seconds, but he wasn't exactly famous. Second choice: Death Proof, starring stuntwoman Zoe Bell.

If she's still not famous enough, how about Tarzan the Ape Man, with Olympic swimmer Johnny Weismuller.

Favorite stunt driving scene in a motion picture? (Other than the entire second half of Halicki's magnum opus above.)

Favorite film filmed near home, was X-Men First Class some of which was filmed in Georgia.

Favorite move about sports: This is a tough one, but Field of Dreams leads the pack for me.

If you haven't responded to the favorite film filmed near your home or long-term place of residence keep responding otherwise:

Favorite Film set in Japan?

I had almost the same experience, many moons ago... only it was a private school kid pretending that his bit of latin when he was 16 meant he was an expert in ancient Greek history. I was neck-deep in my MA at the time.

Only he was even more smug, arrogant and condescending than the blonde in the film (really, the British upper classes have perfected those particular unpleasant traits), there was no Affleck and I was a friend of the girls...

Still, it's horrible when someone fakes clever and then uses their own deception to look down on others. Horrible.

Cheech and Chong's Next Movie

Favorite movie filmed near where I live was Wargames (Seattle).

Favorite 3 spy movies?


Jason Nelson wrote:

Ooh! Good one!

Lemme go with:
1. Ronin; 2. Infernal Affairs; 3. True Lies.

#s 1 and 3 are really action-spy movies, though, and #2 is a cop-spy (as opposed to an international-agent spy) movie. So...

Favorite 3 international-agent spy movies that focus on spying and intrigue rather than action?

Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke! Classic.

What is your favorite scene in a movie where ale, mead etc. is being consumed around a table with turkey legs and other classic Medieval fares?

NINJA'd!!! Go with Kirth's question. It is a good one.
