This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I do hope you're talking about the original - with real minis and Noel Coward - otherwise: shame on you for being so young.
Winston, it's the sequel to the original I was talking about. :p And I'm yet to watch the original one ( I expected 'the reaction' totally :p, but it's in my list of movies to watch. But because of this thread, I wanna watch Little Miss Sunshine before I watch any other English movies. ) But come on, Jason Statham and Mark Wahlberg in the same movie -- now that has to count for something. :-)
Lore, German spoken film about an adolescent girl at the end of the Second World War.
I saw this film in the airplane coming from Korea to the Netherlands. I know most people will not like it, since it's not really commercial, but I totally loved this story. You have to like these specific art films though, and it helps to speak German of course.
Why hasn't anyone recommended "The Princess Bride"?
Just the sheer number of quotable quotes it has:
"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
"Get used to disappointment."
"Murdered by pirates is good."
"Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something."
"As you wish."
Some of the movies that I like are: 'I, Robot' (nice thought, and, action in it), 'Casino Royale' (action-filled)... and also the one I watched after some time of it's starting on TV, called, 'The Cure' ('The Cure' on Wikipedia), which is, like, an emotion-filled movie with summer leisure days of the two boys in it and their mission...
By the way, I watched Office Space and it has been one of my favorite movie ever since. Some that I found to be quite compelling:
The Hard Way
I hope I haven't repeated any. If you would like to see some best-of-breed Indian cinema I would suggest you to check out Satyajit Ray's work. His movies' that I have seen of late and liked as well are:
I can recommend "Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter" (US title: "Generation War"). It's a great three-part movie taking action during Second World War, from the German perspective. The movie is about a group of good friends who divide their ways because of war, but they promise themselves that they will meet again on Christmas, when the war will be won...
If you love movies about WWII and/or you are very interested in its history, those movies are must watch.
Generally, if you only see American movies about WWII, then I recommend to see those one as well. Americans are really terrible about making WWII movies where German perspective plays major or main role. For me, a person who is very passionate about history of this war, it's very pissing off when I see an American movie where a German soldier stands with his hands in his pockets and chewing a gum. Or seeing soldiers with bears and hair longer than ears level. American directors simply have no idea about German side, thus they make them very Americanized in every movie.
