    Recommend very good movies, past and present.

    I saw IP man on Netflix and it was terrific. There are two versions and both are highly recommended.

    The movies is with English sub titles but you don't need to read very much to understand the movie. IP man was a mentor to Bruce Lee. It is a true story.

    That all looked incredibly fake. I don't know that I could sit through that with those cartoon hands and feet if it looks like that in the movie.

    Watch the movie and find out. It is less fake than any movie of it's type. I rate this movie A++

    Plus there's a sequel. One he fights the Japanese karate expert who occupies China and another where he beats a British boxer who is totally obnoxious to near death.

    Maybe it's a youtube/refresh rate thing... Because it really didn't look like anything that would even need to be CGI to begin with.

    Do you like movies about Gladiators?

    I've seen several of them and enjoyed them. I like period pieces eg., Jayne Eyre, Pride and Predjudice, Little Dorrit ...

    I like a lot of different movies eg., Deer Hunter. You name it and I probably saw it.

    I'll recommend three movies that are exactly that: Very good, but not great.

    1. Joe the King
    2. El Mariachi
    3. High Life

    I saw this movie a long time ago, and recently again. Jennifer 8.

    Andy Garcia, Uma Thurman (one of her better roles, IMO), John Malkovich and Lance Henriksen.

    If you liked Silence of the Lambs, this is right up your alley.

    The Dark Backwards - James Caan, Wayne Newton, Judd Nelson, Rob Lowe, Bill Paxton, and a young Lara Flynn Boyle.

    Top notch.

    Twinkle, twinkle, Killer Kane (also known as "The ninth configuration".)

    Stars Stacey Keach, the guy with the lip-thing.

    PS: Can a person with mod powers just find one of the old threads like this and merge it
    with this one. It's dumb to keep starting over, frankly, when so many good films
    have been mentioned time and again and its better to have a single running list.

    Great idea I nominate Jungle Shift as Demon Cleaner has enough responsibilities around this place while Jungle Shift is a trouble maker of the first order. He needs something to keep him busy.

    It's "particle" vs "wave" with Jungleman.

    Not for everyone...but nothing like the hilarity-less "Honey, I Overcooked the Steaks."

    We've had a jillion threads already started about movies (not just "good" ones)
    that would be better to consolidate so that the people who haven't seen
    every movie ever made or just the ones made after 2011 could get some awareness
