    Korean movie, so I had to watch through it with subs but it had me completely hooked. Awesome plot and story telling.

    Just don't read any spoilers about it or you'll ruin the entire film for yourself.

    lately it has been Apocalypto and The Prestige....

    on a sidenote regarding The Prestige:
    Do you think that in star trek, every time they get beamed somewhere, the old version of themselves dies first ?

    As of recently, the only decent action flick I've seen is "The Departed". It also won "Best Picture", ftw.

    Among recent movies, Pan's Labyrinth was also excellent.

    Most recent is, Das Leben der Anderen.

    It didn't win a Oscar for nothing, and also its the highest rated movie this year on IMDB, and it has a better ending than, The Departed.

    Kingdom of Heaven, (extended edition only!)

    ... but to fully appreciate it and understand it you need to be french and need to have learnt the History of France [​IMG]

    Other excellent films I've seen recently: Children of Men (excellent! but too damn short), The Illusionist (Edward Norton my favourite actor!), The Prestige, and hmm... the other ones that I like are older.

    Apocalypse Now, A Clockwork Orange, The Thing, Escape from New York, THX 1138, 2001: A space odyssey.

    There is not a single film today that even comes close in comparison to these classics.

    Das Boot (an older german film) is extremely intense and highly recommended.

    Recently I rewatched Ridley Scott's Alien; f'n awesome!

    Yea those 2 are high on my list too. [​IMG] Others I've seen recently are Inside Man and The Departed. I also liked Grave of the Fireflies, dunno if it counts as a movie. But it was the first thing to actually make me cry.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about Friday. Even though it wasn't exactly high-end, it still gets me everytime. [​IMG]
