You can always check http://www.imdb.com ,they have a very trustable rating.
I always check the comments on their site before I rent a movie, mostly everything above 6.5 is worth watching, except "irreversible", I was totally in shock after seeing this one.

Anybody seen "Un Long Dimanche de Fiançailles" yet? Very good, apparently.

I understand that "irreversible" is well made. The effects are very good and the style of filming is original. It is just that I might be too sensitive for movies of this kind. I'm not saying it's crap, for me it's just a bit too shocky.

here are some comments from imdb;

"Personally I loved this film....if you can use "love" to describe a movie that battered me, sickened me, mesmerized me, drained me and left me feeling as if I had been kicked in the gut. Judging by the faces in the audience at last year's VIFF I was not alone in this."


"The "Rectum" was in fact a genuine gay S&M club in Paris. The crew changed the name, redressed the set and added red lighting. The club was spread across the basements of three separate buildings and was so cavernous and confusing that many of the crewmembers became claustrophobic in it."

"The first 30 minutes of the film has a background noise with a frequency of 28Hz (low frequency, almost inaudible), similar to the noise produced by an earthquake. In humans, it causes nausea, sickness and vertigo. It was the main cause of people walking out of the theaters during the first part of the film in places like Cannes and San Sebastian. In fact, it was added with the purpose of getting this reaction"

"The French DVD release proudly proclaims in the blurb on the back that of 2,400 people at the film's Cannes premiere, 200 walked out."

Zatoichi (a fine Beat Takeshi Samurai meets cabaret flick)

Kung Fu Hustle (if you liked the kung fu references in Kill Bill , this will blow you away , visually astounding kung fu flick from Stephen Chow)

Hmmm - a more lowbrow selection than most here - but here's a selection from off the top of my head - I really enjoyed all of these films:

1. Pulp Fiction
2. Empire Strikes back
3. The Harder They Come
4. Fight Club
5. Truck Turner (starring Isaac Hayes no less)
6. This is Spinal Tap
7. Gimme Shelter (Rolling Stones reference of the day)
8. Terminator 2
9. Spiderman
10. Dogma
11. Enter the dragon

From the ones that greek theater's are playing right now, I'd wholeheartedly recommend Mike Leigh's "Vera Drake" & Alejandro Amenabar's "The Sea Within" - two of the best films I've seen in a long time.

If Kitano's "Dolls" is your kind of movie, you could see Zang Yimou's "Shi Mian Mai Fu" ("Τα Ιπτάμενα Στιλέτα"), though it's a quite more commercial & very much effects-driven film than Kitano's.
