    Ok I have only a few more days til Im officially between jobs. I leave Smiths on 8th Nov and start my new job on 13th so I wanna get some films, ones I have yet to see to keep me busy whilst I relax.

    Any thoughts on


    Pokemon and Pokemon 2000 ( Im curious as to what the fuss is about, will anyone over 12 like these )
    Ghostdog ( seems like it should be really good )
    The Patriot
    Skulls
    Ninja Scroll
    American Psyco ( may ask for R2 copy as leaving present [​IMG] )
    Swingers ( I liked GO )
    Jack The Ripper ( saw this on Tv years ago, the one with Mr Cain and remember it as quite good )
    Spinal Tap ( again may make a good leaving present )


    or any other sugestions of non-blockbuster but still rather good movies

    I recommend Spinal Tap. I received it about a month ago. I've watched it about 4 times so far and I still love it and want to watch it. Really really funny. I think it was voted 11th funnies film of all time by the readers of one of the film mags. Deserves to be higher.

    I bought Iron man from Smiths recently. I think thats really good.

    Yeah, Swingers is superb, one of my favourite films. American Psycho is also very good, well worth a purchase.

    Well im gonna order THE PATRIOT cos it seems like an epic type that I can enjoy at my leisure and I think also GHOST DOG.

    Will ask for AMERICAN PSYCO and SPINAL TAP as a leaving present.

    Will 4get about POKEMON and try and borrow SWINGERS.

    NINJA SCROLL im still not sure about. I loved MANGA B4 it became really popular and managed to get a really early copy of AKIRA on VHS which I wore out, but after awhile they all seemed to merge into one. The same was true for THE MADE IN HONG KONG movies. I had nearly ALL the JOHN WOO and his mates movies before most people had heard of him, but then just lost interest in em all.

    Recently got back into the KICK ASS, SHOOT LOTS movies with DRIVE ( which I think is on Ch.5 2nite, but watch it, its great ) and would like some more movies of this type. Has anybody ever seen BLACK SHEEP AFFAIR as that looks fairly good

    Jack the Ripper! I remember that one, an old Thames Television thingie. Don't know if DVD techno would have hit that one yet. But you never know!?!?

    Pokemon The Movie, no no no, Pokemon meets Leatherface the Movie, maybe

    Furthermore, The Patriot, good film but remember about the R1 RCE! Might not be a worthwhile investment. Nice movie for ya would be George A Romero's Dawn of The Dead, excellent underated film.

    RCE is of no concern

    My Pioneer 919e is a manual select region machine and I also own an import US R1 only toshiba machine, so I think THE PATRIOT shall be my next purchase, they way im going im gonna hit 200 DVDs by X-mas, im gonna need a bigger shelf !

    Highly recommend "Ghost Dog". If you a want leisurely-paced drama, with some action in it, that can't easily be pigeon-holed into any one genre, then go for this title.

    Ninja Scroll is a very good Manga film and well worth purchasing. I have it on VHS and will be ordering the DVD version soon.
