Watchman, I think you mean "El hijo de la Novia", and if you're not watching southamerican movies you're missing a lot... "El hijo..." is a beautiful movie, I bought it, and "Lugares comunes", "El mismo amor la misma lluvia", "Kamchatka", "el último tren" or "Y tu mamá también" are all great great great movies...

Holy cow! Just saw Mulholland Drive and I can't recall seeing any movie as weird as that one. The sheer mind-twisting factor is unbelievable. I think I'm going to ask "what the hell happened?" a lot while trying to figure out the plot. Damn great movie! ;)

Thanks! Yeah, I dicussed the movie with a friend and he had the same idea as you. That dream/reality-theory makes most sense. But thanks again for the explanation. :)

:blink: I just finished watching "The Crimson Rivers" and I was wondering if anybody who has seen it can help me. What did the whole "Perfect Race" thing have to do with the murder and removing the hands and eyes of the victims??? Thanks!

I have never seen either the newest or the last Lord of the Rings. I'm guessing you would recommend the first one? I heard the ending was kinda weird though (thankfully my friend didn't ruin it for me lol).

Everyone here's gonna kill me, but I think the first Lord of the Rings film was quite weak. Very good for someone who has read the books and know what is going to happen and just want to actually see the things he had read about. But as a film...

The second is, IMO, much better (although it's just a decent film, far from a master piece).

IMO, obviously.

I'll take that in consideration, thanks Watchman :)

Yep, I would agree with that summary - the first movie would have been quite confusing and weak as far as characterisation went if you hadn't read the book.

The second was a lot better, but it's a bit of a problem when the character with the widest emotional range in the whole movie is completely computer-generated...

I like them because of the books, is fun to see what other people saw when reading them, but they won't change my conception. I could start hating Sam just because of the movies (I hate his character!!!), but I liked him in the books, so...
