    Hey guys, I'm looking for some good movies to see that you guys woudl think I would like. I'm a big fan of anything buy Guy Ritchie (Lock Stock and Two smoking barrels and Snatch). I also really enjoyed Oceans Eleven, Oceans Twelve, Layer Cake, Be Cool, Get Shorty, Pulp Fiction, Bandits, the score, and anything that really has more of a criminal point of view to it. Also the coolest thing I think about in those movies is how everything kind of comes together especially in Guy Ritchie Films. So if you guys know any good films that you think I would enjoy please reply.


    Thanks.

    Maybe try Se7en, 12 Monkeys, Shawshank Redeption for some good movies with twists that come together later. If I think of more like that I'll add later.

    I've seen shawshank redemption a ton of times just have never finsihed. As for 12 monkeys and se7en are those more horror, or am I thinking of the wrong movies?

    Italian Job?
    I like con men movies. You might also try Matchstick Man & Confidence.
    Sting for old school.

    And one gem I really love is Grifters with John Cuzack.

    Also, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is really good.

    I've seen Matchstick men and I really enjoyed that one, I really enjoyed gone in 60 seconds the first time I saw it when it was in theatres, I haven't seen grifters.


    I saw italian job and really didn't like it as much, reminded me of oceans 11 to the T.

    Ive got the following on my netflix queue:
    Alexander - never saw it
    Oceans 11 - saw it and loved it
    Oceans 12 - saw it and loved it
    confidence - haven't seen it, but seems like my type of genre.

    Have you seen Reservior Dogs by Taratino or maybe the Usual Suspect. Looks like you just like a movie with an ensemble cast trying to steal something. I do too. :)

    Oh yeah, Heat and Ronin.

    I watched a lot of reservoir dogs at a friends house, but never finished it. The Usual Suspect was great (thats the one with keyser soze right?, played by the guy in american beauty)


    I'll have to look into Heat and Ronin, I know I've seen some of heat not sure about Ronin and yes you're pretty mcuh right lolac about my taste in movies. :)

    Hustle and Flow, a black Pimps rise from the ghetto seated on a dream of musical enterprize.

    What about Fight Club or Primal Fear? Those are both on the top of my list...Ronin is also really good with Sean Bean. I'm a huge fan of his and am looking forward to him in Flightplan...

    I've seen Fight Club, and I'm seriously doubting Hustle and Flow.

    You have to watch until the end of all the above movies :) Same with confidence which is also good with twists. Se7en is kinda horror, but more psychological I'd say, whereas 12 monkeys is more just playing with your head. All great imo :)
