1. Days of Heaven
2. The Thin Red Line
3. The New World
4. Badlands

1 Badlands
2 days of heaven
3 new world
4 thin red line

Has This Is England even been released in the US yet? It was brilliant but never seems to be mentioned here.

If it had, it was a super limited release. That's one to catch on DVD then.

I'm suddenly tempted to watch Thin Red Line, it's been some time since I've watched it.
All this love for Terrence Malick is awesome...and as much as I sympathize with ignoring the urge to buy all DVDs, and save money, the Days of Heaven Criterion DVD is a must have, particularly for a Malick fan.

I love each of his films, but for me Thin Red Line is the greatest use of his poetic style.

I can't believe I forgot to mention it. It did get a really limited release here, and I'm pretty sure the R1 DVD came out at the end of 2007, I caught it via IFC's On Demand in the summer, its great when a gem that doesn't get a decent release can be viewed in my living room, rather than driving out of my way to see it.

Glad you enjoyed it, good to know it's making even a slight impact overseas.

Have you seen any other of Shane Meadows' films? His previois one, Dead Man's Shoes, got a lot of press over here and it's well worth a watch. There's also A Room for Romeo Brass, his second film and in my eyes second only to This Is England.

Nope.

It was entertaining enough, but I ended up being unimpressed overall. I did really like the lead guy, though. I'd watch him in other movies.

I own each Malick title, and love to go back and re-watch. Days of Heaven is my favorite of his.

Malick lovers, have you ever watched the films of David Gordon Green? If not, you might want to. My favorite is All the Real Girls.

You're not alone. It was unbearably bad.

LOVE All The Real Girls. Queen Zooey's crowning achievement.

My friends, and the Foreign Press it seems, think it's the greatest thing ever because it's the Beatles, man.

I don't know why they all become The Dude after seeing it, but man, I came in exciting and came out like I was slapped in the face.

You either go, fantastically surreal musical, or plot with musical elements: you can't have both. And fuck Prudence, honestly. Way to ruin a great song, guys.
