It's also a remake of the 1974 Burt Reynolds film with the same title. That's why Reynolds has a part in the new one, heh. I haven't seen the new version, but I've heard it's horrible from everyone who has.

Speaking of Romero, do see Martin. It's an interesting vampire story, not as famous as his zombie flicks, but just as good. I even find it his best, out of the ones I've seen (granted, I haven't seen many).

I had no idea they did a remake of that, but the original is one of the worst movies I've ever had the displeasure of seeing. Though Marion Cotillard still visits my dreams from time to time

I think you're talking about Mean Machine (2001) which, as Once A Villain points out, is itself a remake of the 1974 "The Longest Yard" from the US (to confuse matters, this was released in the UK as The Mean Machine - I remember it being on TV under that name when I was there as a kid).

Anyway, I haven't seen the current version of the Longest Yard but I find it hard to imagine that it could possibly be worse than 2001's Mean Machine - an absolute dog of a movie.

I recently saw 'White Noise'. Not very special, but static TV's have always been freaking me out ever since I saw Poltergeist when I was a little kid. So yeah, it managed to scare the shit out of me a few times.

I saw it yesterday but I have seen it before. I haven't read the book but I believe that the movie is suppose to show the backside of the whole yuppie-lifestyle.

I've seen Wedding Crashers twice. Very funny and tasteless.

I used to be a HUGE Sam Raimi fan when I was living in L.A. I happened to meet a guy who could get in anywhere in the city (I still don't know how...I think he was Michael Mann's son because they shared the same last name). Anyway, this guy got me and my friends into everything. The set of E.R. back when it was a big show, Steven Spielberg's offices (the guard just saw my friend and said "Go on in."), and of course, Sam Raimi's offices. I wrote Raimi a big letter telling him how much I liked his work. He sent me an autographed picture that said "BEAST WITCHES, Sam Raimi." Ha ha. Now the guy makes Spider-Man movies...who would've guessed?

I don't know, its humor just never worked for me. The car scenes were mildly amusing (I was never a big car buff, I would've probably liked them more if I was), but that's about it. Apart from Ms. Cotillard, of course

Luc Besson produced Taxi, didn't direct it.

Taxi's 1 and 2 are two of the best buddy cop films I've ever seen. Never seen the third though.

Not actually movies, but two miniseries: 'Angels in America' and 'the Singing Detective' (the original BBC version, not the crappy Katie Holmes remake, thanks) are stellar and should be watched by everyone.

I'd go for Manhattan, like Gilly. Annie Hall is a tad too sad for me, when Manhattan is just nostalgic.

It's very close. Most people are split between these two, and we happen to be on opposing sides. Heh. One can't go wrong viewing either film, so it doesn't really matter.

Well, as far as I'm concerned, it's pretty hard to go wrong with any Woody Allen movie. I can only think of three that I didn't like among the twenty or so that I've seen.

I've spent the weekend watching old black & white horror films:

Nosferatu, Phantom of the Opera, The Little Shop of Horrors, Night of the Living Dead and other obscure movies...
