    I thought all the Heath Ledger stuff was hype after he died, but after watching the Dark Knight....he was the Joker! Such brilliant acting!

    I'd probably count A Knights Tale amongst my all-time favourite films - silly kind of film really, but the cast do at least look as though they're having fun and the action sequences (consisting mainly of blokes on large horses smashing into each other) are something of a rarity these days in actually being filmed by, well, getting a bunch of blokes on large horses and smashing them into each other, nothing done by computer graphics.

    My home "city" was made into a Beatles' song. Care to tap your foot and make a guess?

    Action and some Drama

    .

    Blood Diamond (2006)
    Smilla's Sense of Snow (1997)
    Heat (1995)
    White Squall (1996)
    Arlington Road (1999)
    The Kingdom (2007)
    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998)
    The Hurricane (1999)
    Amistad (1997)
    Snatch (2000)
    Gladiator (2000)
    Heaven (2002)
    The Peacemaker (1997)
    Buffalo Soldiers (2001)
    Three Kings (1999)
    Léon (1994)

    Of these, my personal favorite is Léon. Practically every day I wake up and ask what became of Mathilda. Jean Reno has good command of the English language. His pronunciation of the name Mathilda is perfect diction. This action flick takes time to learn the main characters. The pacing is superb. Natalie Portman makes a surprise appearance. One of her purest (and best directed) roles.

    Next on the list is Heat. Has one of the most stunning get away scenes (if not the most compelling) in film. It was a total shocker. Was not expecting it, the duration nor the intensity. About 10-15 minutes into the scene, I could not believe how well it drew me in. The rare type of scene that sneaks up on ya and when you are least expecting it, grabs your coat lapels, gets up in your face and demands attention. Totally blew me away. ...One of the best movies to feature De Niro and Pacino together in film. Top notch support from Val Kilmer and Tom Sizemore; also features Ashley Judd, lovely under pressure. One of the most powerful endings in an action film, you will ever see.



    Obviously there are others, but the list above is mainly A-list action, adrenaline redlined + some drama with good story line woven in the film that does not disappoint. All with good casting, directing and support roles by the best in the business. I especially liked Arnold Vosloo and Jennifer Connelly in Blood Diamond and Djimon Hounsou in Amistad. Blood Diamond captures Leo in purest form, one of his best acted and directed roles in film..

    Find one legitimate fault in the films above and I will give you $100.oo Hungarian forint.

    Totally agree.

    My ALL TIME favorite film is V for Vendetta.
    Every time I watch it I see something knew or work something else out. And it's just so... EPIC!

    Other than that Shaun of the Dead... and everything else with Simon Pegg, but mostly Shaun of the Dead.
    Must have seen that near 40 times and can almost quote the whole film.

    If you want disturbing, try and find "Old Boy" that's a bit twisted...a Korean film. Very good..
