the ending to taxi driver is just showing that there is still a bit of craziness left in bickle. just showing that he could easily slip back into a violent rage, and that he is definitely not somehow turned normal after being labeled a hero.

This and it also in a way shows how American society and mainstream media can turn a nut case like Travis into a "hero" when yes, he was looking out for her best interests, but lets face it, he just needed to get some killing in

i dont even think he was looking out for her best interests. i didnt notice it until the 30th time watching, but when he attempts to commit suicide after killing all the thugs, he points the gun at her and tries shooting. bickle had problems, plain and simple.i always notice little things every time watching it. still my favorite movie of all time.

I rewatched barton fink, such a good movie. I'm a big fan of slashers, and somehow I missed this one.



bruce campbell was in it for like 2 seconds at the end, even though his name is on the front cover haha. pretty entertaining movie, had some interesting kills/gore.

HELL YES! intruder is nuts, dudes getting their heads cut in two by saw blades and some other gnarly stuff.

i bought both deer hunter and dirty harry on dvd today. its nice making the change to dvd.

Could any one recommend some good film noir?
The Big Sleep, Chinatown and Blade Runner to name a few.

Will check out The Big Sleep, love the other two, never thought of Blade Runner as film noir, but it makes sense.

I've never understood the love for blade runner. I tried to watch it once but it was just so dreadfully boring.

Try reading the short story first and give it another chance, it starts off boring but gets really good.

yeah, it's the type of movie that's pretty whatever at first...but gets better with subsequent viewings.

I remember falling asleep during Brazil. I watched it again like a year later, and loved it.

I was the same way. I kept zoning out in my first viewing of Blade Runner, but I kept thinking about it for a couple of months. Then I watched it again and loved it. There's some stuff in there left to interpretation you just don't get the first couple of times. (Especially the BIG thing  :o)

The Sting, The Hustler, and Butch Cassidy are all pretty essential.  I have a soft spot for Slap Shot too cause I got in vhs when I was like 10.  I was hyped on the brief titty flashing until I saw Zapped.  I think it's time for a rewatch.

I've also been looking for a movie, I was wondering if anyone could help.

I saw it around 8-10 years ago. it looked pretty low budget, the picture looked like it was filmed with a handheld camera, and it MAY have been canadian.

anyways, I guess you could say it's a horror movie. all I can really remember is that it was about a guy who received a box, inside of it had a big talking worm or something. I think at some point the worm also had sex with a girl. the movie could have been called "the crate" or "the box," something like that.

anyways if anyone has any idea what I'm talking about, let me know.

I agree, been waiting for this one for a long time, The Assassination of Jesse James was scored by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, next to Shawshank its probably my favourite OST, pretty much anything Thomas Newman does actually, American Beauty, Road to Perdition, all of his stuff is rad

I'm a fan of David Eggers plus I'm going through some life shit and this flick has inspired me to finally get the fuck out of here.  Watching Ghost Dog again helped as well.

I saw A Serious Man on friday and it was pretty cool. The Coen brothers pull another WTF?!?! ending that left me guessing.  I liked it mainly because it was about a jewish family living in minnesota, which I relate to. If you like Coen brothers films then this one is for you d00d
Sorry, sometimes I get overly defensive on that point.

i went to see paranormal activity at midnight last night and i've never left a theater feeling so "ehh..." before.  only upside were the trailers for the new coen brothers flick and the road, which both look really fucking good.

in conclusion, fuck paranormal activity.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of retarded kids and a van full of paraplegics.
