Field of Dreams is the baseball film to beat all baseball films, but that might not be up your ally.

Spirited Away is a japanese animated film, NOTICE I DID NOT SAY ANIME! It's not anime. It's pretty amazing though if you like cartoons.

Michael Collins is about an Irish revolutionary, Liam Neeson is in it, and it's pretty amazing.

Um, the Original Shall We Dance is a lot like the American Remake, but 1,000 times better.

And Eternal Sunshine, is a truly truly beautiful film

Seriously? I did not see half of that coming.

I just did not enjoy School of Rock. I am rarely a fan of Jack Black films, when he stars alone. I get this feeling like he tries too hard as the filming goes on, and since they film scenes out of order, he has a load of good scenes, then a load of over the top scenes all mixed into gether, and it just turns me off

A few of those sound good. A baseball film would suit me fine too, since i actually like baseball, because i'm not Axver.

I freaking loved it. It has a great, believable story. It's dark and depressing. The characters feel real. The action sequences are incredibly well done. And the set dressing is beautiful. There's so much in the background that tells you things about the state of the world in 2027 that aren't directly addressed in the movie.

Oh, sure he tries too hard. That's all part of the joke. An unattractive, overweight man trying his damnedest to rock out is a very amusing sight to me. It also has great music, a big heart, and the kids' acting is absolutely fantastic for their age. Not a classic, but extremely enjoyable.

Honorable mentions:

Forrest Gump
The Graduate
Almost Famous
Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery

1) I heard it from a few people actually, one of which being someone that usually has the same opinion of films as I do

2) But still. He likes to show that baby off

Trainspotting - Always been on the should do list
Knocked Up - that surprises me, but i'll give it a go on your recommendation
The Blues Brothers - can't say i can play it
Casino Royale - i was a bit underwhelmed, but i've never been too into James Bond
Pulp Fiction - absolutely great
Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
Quite an interesting list.

I saw half of Almost Famous once. I wanna see it again so badly, the Tiny Dancer scene is so epic.

I think I get turned off of Jack Black because I have a friend who loves him as much as this forum love coldplay and radiohead
