  • Best movies of the last year

    My favorite has to be Memento.

    If you haven't seen this movie your missing out. Its a great psychological / crime drama / suspense / all out confusing movie. Its about a guy who can't form new memories due to an injury sustained during an assault on him and his wife. Now he is trying to find the killers. But since he can't remember anything he tatooes important messages on his body to remind him of his mission. And what makes the movie really cool is that its told backwards (its meant to keep you on equal footing with the main character since neither you or he has any idea why things are happening the way they are). You see the ending first. Then the few minutes leading up to the ending, then the few minutes leading up to that, etc, etc, until your at the beginning. And the beginning has a shock twist (I'll say no more lest I ruin the movie) which makes its completely necessary to watch the whole movie again to understand what you just saw.

    Lord of the Rings, I loved it, i would have sat and watched the next two films without getting out of my seat.

    Harry Potter appealed to thr child in me.

          Enemy at the gates, great book, great movie, about the battle of Stalingrad, WW II. A simple countryman becomes a sniper. The germans have the same answer... just see it.

            I liked "War of the Rats", the book on which "Enemy at the Gates" was based. I thought the movie sucked.

            I enjoyed "Memento", but only after mentally rewinding the film when it was over. The ending (beginning?) was clever and thought provoking. It's a good film to discuss.

            I rarely go to see first run movies, preferring to wait for the video or DVD. I've got a killer home theatre set-up. Consequently, I've yet to see many of the films of 2001.

            Among those that I've liked have been:

            Shrek, Moulin Rouge, Legally Blonde, Made, and A Knight's Tale.

              Ok, so I'm bored last night. I rented the DVD and watched this movie. Really cool the way it all fits together, wish I could play it in reverse. Strange movie though, very original....


              I saw Shrek the other night, it's such a cute movie !! Well, now I'm off to watch The Gift.

                I saw Memento and I still don't know what to think! My daughter, her boyfriend, and I watched the movie and we all came to a different conclusion about what actually happened. This is a very good discussion movie. I guess it is a movie I need watch a couple of times to "get it."

                  MEMENTO SPOILER

                  MEMENTO SPOILER

                  MEMENTO SPOILER

                  IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE ENDING RUINED, DO NOT READ

                  FOR THOSE THAT WANT A LITTLE HELP CLEARING UP THE CONFUSION...READ ON

                  Teddy (Joe Pantoliano) did not murder Leonard's (Guy Pearce's) wife (Jorja Fox); he was using Leonard to rip off the drug dealers. It was Leonard himself who accidentally killed his wife. You see, Sammy Jankis (Stephen Tobolowsky) was real, and Leonard *did* investigate his claim, but Sammy wasn't married. Leonard used the Sammy story to block out the memory that it was *his* wife who had diabetes. She actually survived the rape, and died of insulin overdose later, while trying to test Leonard (who developed his "condition" during that assault). Leonard, with the help of Teddy, had already killed the rapist John G. over a year ago. When Teddy reminds Leonard of all these facts, Leonard, in a fit of pique, records Teddy's license plate number, flags it as the killer's, and adds the "Don't believe his lies" note to the Polaroid, thus setting the wheels in motion for Teddy's eventual demise.

                    I'm still watching the old movies.. bought the DVD Apocolypse Now Redux, the addition of the cut scenes adds new meaning and makes it over 3 hours long.

                      Darthchoke, why did Lenny make Jimmy get undressed before he killed him? He said he didn't want to get blood on Jimmy's clothes but I wasn't clear on why he felt he needed to have him take them off. To make it look like a robbery???
