    I enjoyed Hero and HoFD. Tarantino makes isn't amazing, but alot of his films and different and interesting. I like him as a writer too, Natural Born Killers was a fantastic film.

    Hero ruled, and its name doesn't deserve to be listed here. The photography was simply amazing. It's fun too see those Chinese actors flying and kicking *** at the same time, before the Matrix had been invented

    It was one of those films that made me stay in the cinema simply because I had already paid for it.

    I usually erase from my memory this sort of stuff, but I remember I hated all Star Wars related films I've ever seen.

I didn't think the acting was that good either. The only good part was the first fight scene. Oh, and as said earlier... Tarrantino really had nothing to do with Hero. I'm not spelling Tarrantino correctly, am I?

    Of recent Chinese films, I think House of Flying Daggers is my favorite. It is slow at times, but visually it is stunning. And the acting is a lot better than in others.
    That's the way I felt. It had a couple good scenes, bust the rest of it was confusing and boring.

    That was Braff's first movie. In some parts the writing excelled though, like the scene with the pyramid scheme guy, the hamster funeral, and the bit where Sam says about Largeman being her knight in shining armour, when he has his little "we're in the middle of no-where speech". It also has the Shins in it, so it's 100% certifiable indie touchy feely stuff.

    The truth is, if Hero didn't have the "presented by Tarantino" bit, then it probably wouldn't have got the coverage it has gotten.

    I don't like fantasy movies at all really, but there is something about Harry Potter films that I find particularly irritating. I think it is the stupid made up names for things.

    I hate all that Harry Potter crap, a friend of mine (who likes said fictional character) bought me a book called "Barry Trotter and the shameless Parody" which was quite appropriate

    Reservoir Dogs was a shameless rip-off of a different film, can't remember what now, but the stuck-in-the-middle-with-you bit was memorable.

    Pulp Fiction, you either love it or hate it I guess. Personally I really like it, great soundtrack, great editing and use of montage. Not to everyone's taste though.

    The only films I can't stand are the epic battle kinda ones, like Alexander etc. etc. I liked Lord of the Rings, but it seems everyone is trying to jump on the band wagon now.

    Harry Potter films just keep getting better and better.

    Epic films have a long history, and were really revived with Braveheart and Gladiator... not LotR.... though to many LotR represents the modern pinnacle (Personally, I still like Gladiator for the best modern sword and sandal type epic).

    Braveheart and Gladiator passed so under the radar for me that I guess I didn't take them into account. Oh how I dislike Russell Crowe films... and Russell Crowe. I was also particularly disappointed with A Beautiful Mind.

    Groundhog day was his best. After Lost in translation and the other one, can't remember the name but it was about the submarine captain or explorer or something...

    EDIT:
    hahahaha... the two movies i spoke about is posted just below me! Saw it after i hit submit! But thanks for the name "Life aquatic"

    I actually thought Blade 3 wasn't too bad. It wasn't great, but was a vast improvement over Blade 2...
