    I think you are confusing the actors with the roles they play. I mean Stallone could take out an army in Rambo 3 but im pretty much guessing if you put him in a real life situation that two hoodies in london with a flick knife would kick his peachy little ass. ;)

    Jason is pretty good, I have to say, he stays in shape, but I think the roles he plays make him look like a bit of a nob most of the time. Transporter? give me a break :lol:

    lol yeah i'll agree with you there he has to be the boisterous ones in every movie he's in :D
    I've yet to see a movie that has statham as anything other than a hard arse brit.
    In RL i don't doubt that he's not as 'ard as he is in the movies. Gotta admit his fight scenes are brilliant though.... all 18 million of them :dead:

    To me, there's no such thing as a favorite movie. However, one I have to mention is Das Leben der Anderen:

    BTW, I'm still not back from my trip, just managed to get hold of a laptop.

    I am surprised no one has mentioned Sean Connery yet *sigh*

    I'm a HUGE Connery buff. I do a pretty good impersonation of him.


    Anway,

    Studio Ghibli hasn't made a movie that disappoints, all very good and thought out, my favorite though was Princess Mononoke.


    Real movies, Tombstone and The Hunt for the Red October.

    Foreignfilms, Seven Samurai by Akira Kurosawa, probably one of the best most epic films you will ever see.

    Best line: "I'm your huckleberry... Why, Johny Ringo, you look like someone just walked over your grave" (or something like that)Val Kilmer is great in that movie. Next to "The Outlaw Josie Wales" and "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid", it's my favorite western.

    I'm assuming we've a few Paul Newman fans in the group. How about "Cool Hand Luke". What a great movie that was. I don't think he made a movie that I dislike. Even in advanced age, he made movies like "Road to Perdition", which is a great film too. He made one hell of a peach salsa too.

    Would love to hear it my grandfather sounded very similar to him and looked a lot like him both young and old. To be honest I think the reason I like Sean so much is because he reminds me of my grandfather.

    Val Kilmer rocked as Doc in this one. I liked it much better than Wyatt Earp and thought Kurt Russell did a better job than Costner guy :x

    Sam Elliot needs no explanation ;)

    A bit of a followup on a previous discussion, I saw "Coraline" last night with a friend and we both loved it! The main outline of the plot may be a tad predictable, but overall, it's all wonderfully executed and the characters and the scenery are just wonderful. Also, this "kid's film" actually made my skin crawl a little a couple of times near the end. :lol:

    I probably need to adjust myself to that 3D stuff, though. It was my first 3d cinematic experience and while it generally worked really well, once or twice, when something would "protrude" from the screen more than usually, it actually felt a little distracting. It would be like a small alarm going off saying "you're watching a 3D effect" which would in fact slightly reduce the level of immersion in the events for a moment.

    Yeah I know what you mean, the 3d movies don't gel well with me either, I preferred the traditional 2d version of it. The bluray is out if you want a look. I bought it myself, one of my favourite films this year. the visuals are stunning.

    I could actually write a whole list of favorite movies..
    But, Band of Brothers would be pretty high on the list.. maybe or even probably on number one.. :)

    Loved him in Dragonheart :D

    One of my all-time favorites is The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. It's one of the weirdest (and funniest) movies ever! But if I were to go a for non-cinematic format, I would have to say Sane Man: Bill Hicks. I don't know if any of you are familiar with his work, but Bill Hicks is nothing short of a comedic genius. :)

    Other than that, there are too many good movies for me to put my finger on.

    Yeah I quite liked that myself even if it was a bit silly. It got slated too.

    Incidentally I think there is still plenty of life left in you, you aren't even 30 yet !
