Yes! Such an original, quirky and visually captivating movie. Jim Carrey's performance is great in this one.

Also forgot to mention Vanilla Sky. I think many people just discarded it apriori thinking it would be another rom com, but it has a very interesting underlying plot.

Mostly 'cult' films that show I have questionable taste. These are in no particular order, because bringing myself to say I like one more than another would be a complete lie.

I based it on films I can watch over and over again. Special mention must also go to Shawshank Redemption, Shakespeare in Love and Leon!

It's funny you listed these because I watched them both this week and had never heard of them - just stumbled across them on demand! I love horror movies but I couldn't really get into either of them especially excision but maybe I'll try again!
lol I watch on demand movies all the time, that's probably where I seen them, and randomly on the movie channels. Don't feel bad, movies like these are an acquired taste I think and not necessarily "good" movies.

Lost in Translation, probably. I also love anything Wes Anderson, with The Darjeeling Limited being my favorite of his, probably (especially the beginning short "Hotel Chevalier"). Julie Delpy's 2 Days in New York is also the funniest movie I've ever seen, and never fails to cheer me up!

Impossible question.

- I love Studio Ghibli, Pixar, and Wallace and Gromit (I always watch this stuff if I'm sick).

- Cornetto Trilogy: Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End (Special Mention: Cuban Fury - which has the best dance-off ever).

- Over-the-top late 80s - early 90s comedy movies (First Wives Club, The Naked Gun, Hot Shots, Clue, anything by Mel Brooks).

- Asian: Survive Style 5+, Happiness of the Katakuris, The Most Distant Course.

- Blockbustery stuff: Anything by Marvel (always fun to watch people fight and blow stuff up).

Special Mention: Mysterious Skin. The Edukators, Rare Exports, Terkel in Trouble, Free Jimmy, Let The Right One In (Swedish), Attack the Block, Breakfast at Tiffanys, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and too many others to count.
