So suggest some good movies I can get. They don't have to be new releases either. I like comedies, not dumb comedy rubbish (like most romantic comedies), but things like The Big Lebowski, This Is Spinal Tap, Office Space etc. Also like action/adventure, thriller, fantasy (Spirited Away, LOTR etc.) and stuff like that.

Basically I'll give anything a try, except maybe musicals, which I don't really like apart from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The girlfriend loved Casshern, I thought it was way too slow and that the fights were rubbish after all the 'better than the Matrix' claims.

We both thought Ong Bak kicked ass though.

As afor anime films/feature length there are a few other obvious ones that people will suggest.

Perfect Blue
Castle in the sky (must say that I really did enjoy Castle in the sky. The last 30 or 40 mins had me captivated)
Patlabour 1 + 2

As for other anime that are available as one sort of cheapish collection

Orguss 02. (Iím biased as it was one of the first I had seen and stuck in my head)
Tokyo revelation
Macross Plus

These are just a few. As for anime in general there will be Full Metal Alchemist at 8:30 Tuesday and and Wolf Ďs Rain at 8:30 Thursday on Rapture. Sky digital only by the looks of it. Said to be uncut so thatís good.. Eng dub Iím guessing but we should be able to live through that right. Is positive to see two animes on UK TV.

Yeah Iím plugging it. I want more anime on TV.

If you can pick it up cheap, 'The Man With the Golden Arm' is an awesome film.
I found it in HMV for £3. It's dark, insightful, intelligent, and it's absolutely nothing like you'd expect from a 50s film with Frank Sinatra.
I consider it an unrecognised classic.

Run Lola Run and Memento are both intelligent and unusual, but in similar ways.

The Taxi films were great, and are now available in an English dub, if you like that kind of thing.
