Still want to see Children of Men. My favourite movies are

Aliens\Lord of the Rings Trilogy

These two are my all time favourites with Aliens holding the clear lead for YEARS until LotR came out. Now they are tied. And I have seen Aliens an ungodly amount of times (worn out 3 vhs tapes until dvd came out). Others I love in no particular order are:

300
The Matrix Trilogy
Pirates Trilogy
Interview with the Vampire
Bram Stokers Dracula
The Howling
Underworld

Hell, so many I could list.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Gawd, Ew!

Children of Men was..disappointing!

It ended so abruptly!

I love Saving Private Ryan and The Fifth Element.

Blade Runner.

Androids, Raymond Chandler, speculations on the nature of memory and identity, exotic dancers with snakes, Harrison Ford being beaten to a pulp (several times)... what's not to like (except Rachel's hairstyle)?

Anph - if your a fan of SPR and don't mind reading subtitles then try Brotherhood Of War (or it might just be War) - its a Koren film - the most realistic war film ever made and heart breaking to boot.

Lol thought you might. The reason I thought it might be War was that a freind of mine (who came from the UK) - didn;t recognise the title and then watched the movie and released he had already seen it under the name war. Same case with Leon/The Professional. Different titles for different countries.

Its all to do with the translation. The thing that pissed me of about Pan's Labyrinth was the fact that the actual translation of the name is "The Labyrinth of the Faun", nowhere in the film does it mention the name Pan (as in the Greek god who just happened to be a faun). Yea the creature is a faun but it an't Pan.
