+10 Shoot 'Em Up is an insanely great movie. And somehow, it never gets old for me, even though I know every single move by now. I'll never look at carrots the same way again!

Agreed. One of the all-time greats. More recently, the Red Baron is well worth a view.

Happy to! I love films that are just fun and don't try to teach me anything about life or morals. (I do like the other sort too, by the way)

I just bought Saw V on DVD - I have a big old soft spot for the Saw films!

Me too, watched 1, 2, 3 and 4 again before watching 5.

Anyway, just watched a really good movie that for some inexplicable reason was released only on DVD and didnt even make it into the theaters
Its called "Alien Raiders". Yes, I know the name is just stupid and almost discouraged me from getting it. But the movie was simply excellent, I was rooted to my chair the whole time

Both surprisingly good films. Fight Club was not marketed well when it was released to theaters (i.e. the previews didn't capture the idea sufficiently at all).

If you liked that, you might like "The Good Shepherd", based on the early days of the CIA.

I prefer non-fiction, like The Traitor Within.

Of course, these are all isolated incidents, no conspiracies here. If two civilians get together and decide to rob a conveniece store, now THAT'S a REAL conspiracy. Because the law says so.
