I've just been Rickrolled.

And it was the most epic Rickroll ever.

I should have bet some money on that thing... it took me about 15 seconds to figure out it was a joke when I first saw it.

Not really surprised at all, but hopefully it kept a few disgruntled creationists from creating similar sites for realzies.


It's probably been done before here, but favourite movie, guys?
I think I'd go with good old Shawshank Redemption, for the sheer fact I've seen it over a dozen times and it's always been entertaining.

i think fight club, it's different each time you watch it
shawshank redemption, a perfect mix of pretty normal story, roles and scenography
all tarantino movies (except for jackie brown which was extremely boring) for their general awesomeness and many references to b-movies and similar stuff
children of men, for a great vision of near-future england, Caine smoking weed and really good music

Fight Club was really cool. And the Shawshank Redemption is also freaking awesome.
Though maybe less good, I still find the Green Mile an extremely touching movie. And it was the only movie ever to get me crying like a baby.
Though probably no one will agree with me here, I Robot is actually one of my favourite movies. I always find it underrated. Of course it's an old story.
But the mix of nice action and some good old Will Smith humor made me enjoy this movie alot. "ACHOOO!!" "Are you alright Detective Spooner?" "Oh I'm sorry but I'm allergic to bullshit."
I also love the Matrix, but I dislike it's sequals. Alot.
I really enjoyed the latest Bond movie aswell, Casino Royale. Wall-E was very cool, and so where the good old Incredibles. Both really enjoyable movies.
I also love those old alien movies. Alien, Aliens and The Thing (The 1980 version, not the 1950's thing from another planet)
I actually liked Iron Man more then the Dark Knight. And it's also one of my favourite movies now. I love that humorous action packed hero movie.
And some others I don't wanna leave out: Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Sin City, Tekkonkinkreet, Vampire Hunter D : Bloodlust, V for Vendetta, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

No Country for Old Men- It was great, but then again, I like the Cohen's stuff, and am fixing to see "Burn after reading" in day or two. Anton Chagur's pathos and actions made it perfect for the film, as it made him seem like a ghost, much in the way of an old myth. Truly bad ass.

There Will be Blood- I like Daniel Day-Lewis, cool actor. I think he was great in this film, and with some memorable quotes to boot: " DRAAAINAGE!!"..."I've got a competition in me."..."I'm FINISHED!"

The Dark Knight- Good film, nice refresher to add some darkness to the light comic book world in the movies right now. Bale seems overated, though, as his part in this movie doesn't seem to spotlight much. Like dry white bread, his acting didn't do much for me. Though Heath did a hell of a job with his role. Wonder if the 3rd movie in the Batman Nolanverse will bomb like every other trilogy ever made.

Schindler's List- Effin' wonderful movie. Liam Nielson does a great job as that type of rich ignorant man, who is placed down to earth after opening his eyes. Heartwarming, and wrenching at the same time.

Taxi Driver: I love De Niro's character in this movie. Just a guy who doesn't get it, and becomes a hero in the end for basic vigilantism...heh, very abrupt, I like it.

Adaptation: Nic Cage tends to make a LOT of fluff films, but he's definitely capable of choosing some good ones: Weather Man, Lord of War...But this movie, probably being one of my all time fav' movies. I loved it.

Wall-E- was Terrific. If given the chance, I'd work as an animator for Pixar...but nay, my computer hi res art is in the WEAK SAUCE point of my life. Still learning...one of these days, though...

Iron Man- Was a very fun movie. I hope Marvel sticks with this type of deal, rather than change most upbeat superhero movies, and turn them into dark, downer films to compete with Dark Knight's money winning formula. I can see a Deadpool film, but only done in a jazzy and sarcastic tone, like the movie "American Splendor" where he communicates with the audience in thought bubbles, about his current situation...it could work.

Children of Men- Another one of my All time favs. Clive Owen rocks, and plot is great.

Bladerunner- I'm not a sci-fi geek, but this film has some likeability to it, for some reason.

Alien- Great movie. Was well made for it's time.

The Proposition(2006)- Movie about brothers, I loved the dusty Australian feel of it. Made the emotional atmosphere of the film easy to see.

B-movie classics:

Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon: "Leroy!! Who's the mastah!"..."Sho-nuff"..nuff said, hah.

Killer Klowns from Outer Space:...seriously, I used to love this movie as a kid. So much cheese in a film can be bad for you, but just can't help but love it.

The Blob(1988)- I loved this horror movie, but it doesn't seem to be recognized that often. Oh well...

About a billion others, but those are just some off the top of my head... :)

my back hurts...

I dunno what everyone (or many people) have with Schindler's List. It's not a bad movie, but I found it way too American (if that makes sense).
There are way better movies about WW2, such as Die Fälscher (The Counterfeiters), Stalingrad or Grave of the Fireflies.

Maybe it's just me, but all those had WAY more emotional impact on me than Schindler's List.

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.
