Another I'd recommend: Interview With the Vampire. Sure Anne Rice is a Jesus-crazy weirdo now, but once upon a time she wrote amazing movies about vampires, and they made an amazing movie based on the first one (then years later they went and made Queen of the Damned which BLEW [trufax: it blew because the studio made it to make a quick buck before their rights on it expired and went back to the author])

And of course, there's my all time favourite, Moulin Rouge. But that's an acquired taste. It's a love story musical set in a French whorehouse in 1899 to modern pop/rock songs. It's ultra stylized and cinematic, and quite crazy at points. But its amazing.


And Ashley mentioned Clue!

I've seen it so many times now, and even remade the first 20 minutes of it with a friend of mine, which I still have on tape somewhere.

Hell, I loved the film so much I went out and rented Blues Brothers 2000. Good Lord.

The soundtrack is really great, but not much else is.

Another movie in the 'whacked out' genre is Being John Malkovich. It's truly weird. Basically John Cusack is a loser who finds a portal that lets you into John Malkovich's (the actor) body for about 15 minutes, so that you see/hear/feel everything he does, before dumping you out on the New Jersey Turnpike. And that's only the tip of the weirdness iceberg.

I just want to know how they pitched that movie to John Malkovich. "Yes Mr. Malkovich, the movie involves various people possessing your body."

I'll just throw together something i'd call a top 10 list - although i'm quite likely to miss something out

The Shawshank Redemption
Return Of The Jedi
Heavenly Creatures
Airplane! (aka Flying High)
The World Is Not Enough
Space Balls
Forrest Gump
Pulp Fiction

Oh fuck, i'm out of ideas. More stuff will come to me.

What was that film that had Jim Carey living inside a fictional world?

I'm not, but i remember seeing at a neighbours place a few (shit, many) years ago and felt it was a great film.

I think i'm more not into Bond as an ongoing franchise, but some of the individual films are alright.
