ooo another really good old movie:
Duck Tails (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099472/)
Just some movie trivia:
Titanic was the first time an American movie displayed the female "chest in full", as prior to Titanic, movies couldn't show this, but now thanks to Titanic the restriction of this is no more
And of course Titanic was the highest grossing movie until Avatar, and both movies were by the same guy/director, whatever.

Maybe, but I thought it was illegal for movies (even rated R and maybe NC-17 too) to show a female's nipples prior to the Titanic, and the Titanic only got away with it, due to its nature/context of the entire film and of the scene. But, obviously since the Titanic, it's no longer illegal to show them. The private parts (males and females) obviously still remain illegal to show. I could be wrong about the female's nipple being illegal prior to the Titanic, though. (I'll see if I can research up on this)
I couldn't exactly find anything on this sighs...
It does make sense that this was only concerning pg-13 movies, so I'm probably mistaken then about this.

ya, you're right, my bad everyone! Thank for correcting me, xi0. Again sorry for my mistake.
Titanic was the first time for full female chest nudity for *PG-13* movies, not rated R movies as I wrongly said priorly.
It was mentioned earlier in the thread, but Heat is a must-watch movie in my opinion. Great film, is long, but it doesn't feel like it drags ever. Just a great cast.
I saw 3 Musketeers, and I was disappointed. I was expecting/hoping it to be good, but it was just average, sighs...
I think my interest in American movies is nearly dead. Please let my Batman and Underworld be good !!!!
I don't know...when I saw the previews for it...17th Century France? Bullet-time? Seriously? I didn't really have any expectations for it and I wouldn't buy a ticket to see it.
laughs, nah that statement wasn't based solely on the 3 Musketeers, my bad though for making it seem like it was.
3 Musketeers was merely YET ANOTHER non-great American movie... which is added to the pile that makes up, my disappointment in American movies attitude.
(And, I'm way too spoiled by animes and mangas. Seriously, I get more excited when the next Naruto/Bleach anime episode comes out than a new American movie, and I'm always pleased with the anime episode, but nearly always so disappointed with the American movie... sighs...)
@Hege I will go so mad if the next Batman turns out to be bad but I have faith in Nolan
You haven't watched many films then I guess. A lot of incredible films after Dark Knight. The Wrestler, Black Swan, District 9, Inglorious Bastards, King's Speech, The Fighter, Shutter Island, The Illusionist, Kick-Ass, Tree of Life.... Just a few to come to mind. I thought 2010 was damn strong a year in film.
There are some films like "The Wrestler" or "Inglorious Bastards" I would like to watch though.
Maybe I said it the wrong way, there were some good films but only very few who left me with an "amazing" impression.
Not sure about "Tree of Life", didn't receive it some kind of award? What's the film about?
Cannes Best Film. It is about life, universe an everything. It is an experience. I didn't personally like it that much, but visually impressive. And quite a good attempt to make a film about life. 2011: The Space Odyssey.
Kick-Ass just horrible?!?!? Did you watch the same film? Starts as a mainstream teenage comedy, changes into cruel reality, and then to dark violent yet hilarious action film. It worked awesomely for both action and comedy. I think it was very entertaining and really sucked the viewer in. Sure, not as masterfull as many other films on the list, but still worth mentioning.
District 9 is imo the best sci-fi film of the 00's. Probaply, might be I'm forgetting something.
I remember when I was a kid and my father borrowed JP and we sat to watch it, and it started.. and I was so afraid by this one scene at the beginning that I ran to my room and didn't watch JP until I was older Shit xDOriginally Posted by Ustegius
And its going to be in 3D!!!!!!Originally Posted by baboysai
And suspense, and climate, and.. well, the building of those 2 characters played by Robert de Niro and Al Pacino until they finally have a scene together.. priceless feeling.Originally Posted by xi0
Yeah, if someone expected from this movie sth else then entertainment purpose was f*cked off - or in other words: doesn't know directors and didn't see trailers etc..... When I'm going for eg Resident Evil <series xd> I expect only some mindless stuff with nice visuals and zombie - no thinking allowed <3Originally Posted by naruto-niichan
btw. Ustegius, nice sig, and the movie is fantastic! Maybe some discussion because the ending was somewhat ambiguous for me <and frankly speaking I didn't even once googled about it>:
I really love that type of endings. Pan' Labyrinth, Memento, Inception, Fight Club. Black Swan in some sense, though it isn't really that mysterious. Have you seen El Orfanato? It isn't quite as good as the previously mentioned, but still imho worth a watch.
