    A few but I'm not an enthusiast - I especially like old martial arts films! more recently, I loved the battle royale films, hero, flying daggers, crouching tiger etc

    No not seen either of those, but I'll keep my eye out. I remember seeing a trailer for kung fu hustle, looked awesome! by the makers of shaolin soccer isn't it? that was okay.

    City of God is an awesome film. Probably one of my faves.

    Devils Backbone? i saw the foreign (spanish/mexican) version with subtitles, quality film.

    Hero is the most beautiful film I've ever seen. Better than Flying Daggers in my opinion.

    French and European films I find dreary, but then I'm not that sophisticated perhaps.

    yeah i think so, kung-fu hustle is more a comedy but that martial arts in it are outstanding and it has a Tex Avery style approach to the CGI which works wee with the comedy! Definatly go to the cinema and watch it or rent it out when it come to dvd!

    try and get OLDBOY, it is out in blockbuster, ask at the counter for it, it is japanese so there is subtles but it is a great story, not a martial arts film but a film about a guy locked in a cell for 15 year who is let out and now hunting down the people who locked him up, sounds weird but is a great film, the yanks are in pre-production making a america version. it will be crap just like the american version on the ring and the grudge and taxi so watch the original

    Amelie was a good french film. French films are usually just a bit odd

    Ugh, that reminds me of Les Triplettes de Belleville, I couldn't stand that piece of work...

    Many good european films though...many

    the city of lost children was made in 1995
    the only place i know where you can get it from is hmv or virgin in there foriegn film section or on the internet
    great film about children snatched and used and energy for an evil scientist and the only person who can save the children is a strongman circus freak - ron perlman

    anyone seen Bellevue Rendevous??
    i was a little worst for wear when i watched this, it was weird! it is a cartoon with no talking at all about a tour de france cyclist used to cycle on a staionary bike for mafia bosses to gamble against! and it is about his mother trying to rescue him....messed up or what!

    LOL

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one that thought it was crap. For some ridiculous reason my scriptwriting teacher decided to show it in class...I just didn't show up to class until it was done..I can't stand that movie. People that have seen it say it's great and even in class they liked it. So it was basically me and my sister insulting it against everyone else. I really don't understand what was so fantastic about it. It's a wastage of film. It's absurd.
