    Need some..

    Good movie recommendations. If you were to choose 3 movies to tell me I had to absolutely see, what would they be and why?

    Thanks!

    My list for newer rental releases in the last year:

    Cold Souls (released - February 2010) - My wife's description: Artsy, original, quirky, funny, spectacular acting

    Up (released - Nov 2009) - heartwarming (first 12 minutes are the best)

    The Hangover (released - Dec 2009) - extremely funny movie

    Adventure, Documentary, Military (more history), Horror, Comedy....pretty much anything except some Sci-Fi.

    For military, I'd recommend The Blue Max, Bridge over the River Kwai, and Where Eagles Dare in addition to The Great Escape. Some modern movies that I would recommend are Saving Private Ryan and Apocalypse Now

    Dawn of the Dead (2004)---best zombie flick. ever.
    The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly---Clint and Lee Van Cleef, an awesome spaghetti western/adventure
    Band of Brothers HBO series (not a movie but very worthwhile, and true)

    The brother from another planet

    80's movie. Really surprised me. A lot of great moments. Kind of SciFi with 0 quality effects but great ideas.

    Extract

    Another movie by Mike Judge. Similar to Office Space only this time employees are the jerks.

    Empire of the sun

    An 87' Spielberg movie with Christian Bale lead in his early teens. Just an amazing Film.



    There are so many that come to mind but these are the 3 I will go with for no particular reason.

    For Military history, if you have three+ hours to kill, you can't go wrong with The Seven Samurai.

    A fun documentary is On Any Sunday.

    they why should be obvious if you read my posts much. Now bring me a steak sandwich, a bloody mary and another steak sandwich. And pick up that blood.

    Step into Liquid: Even if you don't surf, it's a beautifully crafted film by Dana Brown, son of the legendary Bruce Brown.

    Grandma's Boy: Classic geek comedy.

    Red Cliff 1 and 2: Chinese war epic. Foreign, though very worth the subtitles.

    Some very good ones (and a few I'd never, ever even consider) already on the list.

    Treasure of the Sierra Madre (source of a very famous quote) - good story, drama, action, great ending
    Groundhog Day - Excellent illustration of a transformation from crass selfishness, to a much better self
    The English Patient - Good, surprising story line in an exotic setting. Breathtaking cinematography

    oh... and why...
