Braveheart is the best film ever.

When I had a lovefilm account I had three lists - one for recent blockbusters, one for classics, and one for everything else. It meant I was watching all the new films when they came out, plus educating myself on golden oldies, and getting caught up on films I'd never normally have watched/bought.

I actually have Braveheart on DVD Smile it is a very good film. That sounds like a good plan, right now I am only gonna have the 2 disc package one for games and one for films but if the service is good enough I may change that. I was pulled in by a free month and £20 Amazon voucher!

A quick glance at my CD collection reveals a rather eclectic mix of films. I'll skip over the Hollywood musicals (though West Side Story is pretty damn good.) think we have every Coen Brothers film - No Country for Old Men and Fargo are my favourites. Kevin Smith's films are great. He usually manages to get a few hockey references in. Dogma is a brilliant film. You can't go wrong with a giant pooh monster.

Best non-hockey sports films - The Damned United, and Tin Cup.

Have you seen Pan's Labyrinth? Totally freaked me out.

I can't wait to get home and listen to "Beef" the soundtrack Very Happy

This is my favourite film http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FUBAR_(film) Its about a couple guys from Calgary listening to heavy metal and getting drunk. Its a mockumentry, but its the only film i have ever watched and forgotten it wasn't real.

One of the characters dies jumping into a shalow river, and the next scene is his funeral. For the next few minutes i couldn't believe they actualy keept the fotage in the film. Then i remembered it was't real Embarassed

I love Pan's Labyrinth it is awesome Very Happy but I have that on DVD already and Dogma is awesome too!

I haven't seen Tin Cup but have heard good things about it so will give that a go.

For the love of Iginla! At what point do they say enough "No thank you kind sir, I have had enough Beef"

When i googled it i was half expecting B horror movies set in a slaughter house. Even they would have stoped with the trilogy!

Have you seen lovefilm will be available on the xbox! Have you added the mighty ducks to your list?

I agree with CJ Kevin smith is great, even If he is a devils fan!

Gran Torino is an amazing film that should definitely be on there! Also, where was this offer, I've wanted to try lovefilm for a while!

Ooooh really? when they doing that?! The online streaming service is already very good I am made up with it.

I actually already have the mighty ducks on DVD Laughing

I got it in the post from Amazon. Apparently I can invite you for a free 30 day trial also, if you just go and sign up normally I think you still get 14 days.

How the hell is Wall-e not on the list? I would also recommend Downfall (german view of Hitlers final days), Full Metal Jacket, The Departed and Cloverfield.

I would also add pike to ze list (seriously no one got that? Razz)

Films are almost as bad as music for recommendations as enjoyment really comes down to individual tastes.

That said looking at the releases of the last 5 years I'd pick out:

Inception, The Town, Up, The Hangover, WALL-E, Step Brothers, 3:10 to Yuma, Into the Wild, No Country for Old Men, Blood Diamond.

Some excellent choices there Ronnie. I loved The Town. I'm not a big fan of Ben Affleck, but his love for Boston comes through very clearly in the film. Ditto with Gone Baby Gone.

And one from the 'that's the last time I let you go to the video store' collection, have you seen Run Lola Run? If it's parodied by the Simpsons then it's good enough for me, but Mr C would beg to differ.

And you can't go wrong with a Muppet movie either.

Youngblood (which a hilarious Patrick Swayze mullet)
Office Space
Brotherhood (Korean film. Incredible story, so long as you can deal with subtitles.
Batman Begins
Dark Knight (If you haven't watched these, then you need shooting)
The Warriors (One of my favourite films of all time)
3:10 to Yuma (excellent film. One of the best Westerns I've seen)
He Loves Me, Loves me not (with Audrey Tatou. French film, but a great view of a story from two different perspectives.)

I also agree with Gran Torino, and throw in Letters From Iwo Jima and Flag of Our Fathers, which are films on the same subject, but from different ponts of view. Both Directed by Clint Eastwood.
