Thought i'd start this thread so we can have a place to discuss and critique movies. The basic premise of this thread is that I select 1 movie per week that people watch and discuss. Anyone is welcome (even the English) to contribute to this thread and give his or her opinions and views on the week?s movie. Hopefully we can get some good discussions going regarding themes, acting and directing style etc. I?ll try and arrange it so that the movie I pick will be on TV sometime during the week, as selecting a movie that some people might not have on DVD would kill the discussion pretty quickly. I would also like to stress that this thread will not be purely about ?new cinema releases?; rather it will focus on modern and contemporary classic. As much fun as discussing movies like Pirates and Superman would be, there are already threads cluttering up the boards regarding these and I feel we wouldn?t really be adding anything new or interesting. So onto the first movie. As it has been previously discussed in another thread, we shall start off with the Richard Kelly classic (no, not Domino ) Donnie Darko. I?m pretty sure every man, woman and child worth their salt owns a copy of this film, but even if you don?t, there is a very good chance that you have seen it an can give your views accordingly. I would like to point out however that it is an integral part of this thread that people actually watch the movie again, rather than rely on their 2 year old memories. I?m hoping to get some serious in depth discussion going, discussions that require the knowledge of details that only a fresh viewing can provide. I?ll post a format list up soon asking for specific opinions about the chosen film (ie. Favourite scene etc.), so don?t worry about having to write an essay or anything. Ok then, lets get the ball rolling. First point of business, post if you?re interested in contributing and secondly, watch Donnie Darko.
