Just popped this Idea in my Mind.

In this thread you'll suggest to other users a movie to watch, explaining genre, awards, plot and why, in your opinion, other users should watch it.

I Start.

The Movie I suggest is "Life is Beautiful" (orig: La vita è bella).
It is an Italian Dramatic, but at the same time a bit funny, movie. this movie won 3 Academy awards (Roberto Benigni (Best actor), Best foreign language Movie and best soundtrack).
This Movie is about the story of an Italian Jew during the Fascism ages. After marrying an Italian woman met casually and becoming Father, he is deported to a concentration camp with is young son. He then try to protect his son making he believe that is a game.

I suggest this movie because I think is a Masterpiece and is very touching. Every time I see it I'm near to cry.
Great Movie.

A Complete History of My Sexual Failures

Genre
This film is a mostly a documentary with a great degree of comedy interwoven into it - at times feelings almost slap-stick. There are times, however, when it gets emotionally raw and becomes much more of a love/romance drama. One scene brought a tear to my eye.

Plot Summary
Chris Waitt, a 30-something man living in the UK, has never had a stable job in his life, has had many previous girlfriends, all of whom have dumped him and he feels his life is going into a downward spiral. He decides to revisit all of his previous girlfriends and interview them as to why they dumped him, what they found wrong about him and ask for ways to improve himself.

Throughout the course of the film, there are many funny moments, including phones calls and interviews with his previous girlfriends, self-commentary by Chris on a given situation, plus the advice he gains from his mother. As the story progresses, we see Chris has more problems than the emotional baggage of having every girl who has ever been with him dump him.

He struggles with a lack of sexual excitement and impotence, how - after taking the advice of previous girlfriends - he still can't seem to find the right girl, the possibility of being a homosexual and how even going through various therapies, doctors, drugs and even a BDSM House, he still is is a sexual failure.

The story climaxes upon the realisation that the only girl he ever had a chance with, he blew it. He never took their relationship seriously, where she wanted to get married and start a family. His revelation is that this entire documentary film project was a cheesy, extravagant way to try and get back with this girl. This turns the film in much less a comedy and gives the film a more serious, heartbreaking tone to it. The film however, ends on two positives notes, so you don't leave the film on a downer.

Opinion
I saw this film only just the other night at a film festival and I can honestly way it worked it's way into my top films of all time. The mix of comedy and drama in a documentary style film doesn't give you a typical "hopeless romantic", Hugh Grant feel to it, and I'm sure that's not what the film director and star, Chris, wanted to be perceived as. This is real, with real emotions and feelings.

Overall, the film never had any dull moments. Even in most of the dialogue-heavy scenes you were pulled in because every bit of information was either hilarious, or crucial to understanding Chris as a failed lover. I'd definitely recommend seeing it, purely for the fact that I'm sure at some point in everyone's life, they've been heartbroken.

Got to see Batman: The Dark Knight. You. Must. See. IT ! God, I thought all the reviews were biased over the fact that Heath Ledger had died and all that, but "WOW". Ledger's take on the joker is creepy to a certain extent, but never dull or cartoonish.My only complaint was that Batman sounded like he was constipated and had a mouthful of gravel when he talked. The photography is really good and the characters have a depth that has been lacking in other movies in this franchise.

Spoilers follow. Read at your own discretion.


Bad Taste

Director: Peter Jackson (Yes, the "Lord of the Rings" Peter Jackson)
Year: 1987

Genre
A comedy-horror flick. This is one of the true classics of the genre. It mixes in a nice amount of blood, guts and violence together with both witty and slapstick-esque comedy to amazing results. Along with the fact the entire cast have strong New Zealand accents, it's hard to place this film in any serious light, but that's not the purpose of it!

Plot Summary
Bad Taste takes place in a small New Zealand town named Kaihoro, where the entire population has seemingly disappeared. The Astro Investigation and Defence Service (AIDS) sends Derek, Frank, Ozzy and Barry, collectively known as "The Boys" to investigate. It soon becomes apparent that the entire town has been overrun by Aliens who have a shady plan of their own. In the midst of their investigation is Giles, a charity collector who has come to the town and is quickly thrown in the deep end and finds himself fleeing from the Aliens.

Pressing on, Frank ambushes an alien and puts on it's clothes (keep in mind, the Aliens have taken over the human bodies, so they look like humans), at which point he infiltrates the alien hideout. The Boys, much to their own shock and horror, discover that the aliens are using humans as the source of their most popular menu item on their intergalactic restaurant chain. Frank also finds Giles in here, who obviously had been captured. Frank rescues Giles and allows him to join with The Boys for protection.

As the plot progresses, The Boys attack the alien hideout with guns and chainsaws until they eventually find their way to the head alien, Lord Crumb. Derek stays in the hideout to battle whilst the rest of The Boys leave (using an RPG to take out a good portion of the hideout). The Boys and Giles escape, minus Derek who remains in the hideout, which also just happens to be a spaceship. As he's taken into outer space, he kills Lord Crumb and continues on to the alien home-planet to defeat the rest of them. The Boys and Giles drive off into the sunset.

Opinion
Well, what is there to say about this film!? It great for a laugh all the way through. The dialogue is great and witty, most scenes are gory (but in a comedic manner) and/or hilarious so there's never really a dull moment. It's over-the-top fakeness and blatant B-grade movie style just screams "Cult Movie". The cheesiness factor alone makes this film worthwhile to watch at least once in your life.

There's so much I could say about this film, so I'll keep it simple: Just watch it. Get a few friends around, rent it out/download it, have a few drinks and just have a good time with it.

Notes
This film could have possibly started the whole "Exploding Sheep" fad you might have seen in video-games before. In a later scene in the movie, a wayward RPG doesn't connect with it's intended target, but instead hits and subsequently explodes a sheep. :p

Bleach Memories of nobody



Director: Noriyuki Abe

Year: 2006

Genre:

Paranormal, action/adventure, Anime. This is movie will really make you will like you just watched a Miyasaki film. The movie basicly deals with Shinigami's ( in English Death God).
Also there is some refrences to Japanese culture and I think a little bit of refrences to Japanese folk tales (IE: Shinigami).

Plot Summary:


( Info from Wikipedia)

In Karakura Town, unidentifiable spirits begin appearing en masse. While attempting to deal with these strange souls, Ichigo Kurosaki and Rukia Kuchiki meet Senna, a mysterious Soul Reaper who wipes out most of them. Senna refuses to answer any questions, so Ichigo is forced to follow her while Rukia tries to find out what's going on.

Meanwhile, in Soul Society, the real world is suddenly reflected in the sky, so Tōshirō Hitsugaya and Rangiku Mxdeadxmoto are sent to investigate. They meet up with Ichigo and discuss the events at the Urahara Shop, where Kisuke Urahara explains that a dimension between Soul Society and the real world, known as the Valley of Screams, has expanded to the point that it is connecting the two worlds.

The souls Ichigo saw earlier are known as "Blanks," souls that were lost in the space between the worlds and have been stripped of their memories. The Valley of Screams is composed of these Blanks, but they alone could not be responsible for the size to which it has grown. He goes on to explain that the lost memories of the Blanks will have formed into a single being known as the "Memory Rosary," and he has Ichigo track this being down.

Senna is eventually revealed to be the Memory Rosary, and a fair amount of the Gotei 13 shows up to deal with the problem. However, a mysterious group appears, identifying themselves as the "Dark Ones," and set their sights on Senna. The ancestors of the Dark Ones belonged to the Ryuudouji clan, who were one of the strongest noble families in Soul Society before they were exiled. Despite Ichigo's efforts, they succeed in capturing Senna.

Within the Valley of Screams, the Dark Ones attach Senna to a device powered by the Blanks. As concurrently explained by both the Dark Ones and Mayuri Kurotsuchi, the Blanks are naturally attracted to memories, which they lack. Senna, being composed of nothing but memories, will attract the Blanks, causing a chain reaction that will collapse the entire dimension. This in turn will cause the real world and Soul Society to collide, potentially annihilating both. The Dark Ones explain that their actions are to get revenge on Soul Society: they were Soul Reapers over a millennium ago, but were exiled and have since adapted to the Valley of Screams.

Unwilling to give up on Senna, Ichigo finds the portal into the Valley of Screams on the river. As he enters it, Rukia heads to Soul Society to get reinforcements. Since the only available portal into the Valley of Screams exists in the real world, and the process that will destroy both Soul Society and the real world will complete within an hour, General Yamamoto orders that the Kidō Cannon be fired at the dimension to obliterate it first. Yamamoto refuses to order a rescue mission with such a tight time frame.

Within the Valley, Ichigo finds himself overpowered by the sheer number of Blanks the Dark Ones have at their command. He is saved by the timely arrival of Kenpachi Zaraki, with lieutenant Yachiru Kusajishi on his back. Aside from Zaraki, Soifon, Hitsugaya Tōshirō , Izuru Kira, Kuchiki Byakuya, Mxdeadxmoto Rangiku, Tetsuzaemon Iba, Shūhei Hisagi, Ikkaku Madarame, and Yumichika Ayasegawa have also arrived to help. The group makes short work of most of the Dark Ones, leaving Ichigo to battle their leader, Ganryu. Though it takes Ichigo longer and takes a larger toll on him, he is victorious as well.

Despite having stopped the collapse of the Valley of Screams, the process is far enough along that the effect persists. Senna, now in control of the Blanks, sacrifices herself to use their power to push the two worlds apart once more since she did not want Ichigo to die, thus saving the inhabitants of both Soul Society and the real world.

Extremely weak, Senna asks Ichigo to take her back to the graveyard so that she can see her name on her gravestone. Though the gravestone does not have her name, Ichigo tells Senna that her name is on it. Content that she once lived in the town and assured of her own separate existence, Senna evaporates. Rukia explains that once the power of the Blanks has faded, their memories of Senna will fade along with them. However, after the credits, Ichigo seems to remember Senna when the red ribbon he bought her floats down from the sky to him, and a girl resembling Senna is seen running past him.



Opinion:

Well here's my two cens on Bleach Memories of Nobody, the movie basicly left me in awe from begining to end. Aside from being confused as to what happened BEFORE the movie came out, you'll feel like your watching another Miyasaki master piece. But the only set back again, is the constant confusion of what happened before the movie came out.
