i've pretty much avoided going to watch films for about a decade.

i went to see sherlock holmes the other week and it was ok but i wasn't impressed.

what movies would you say are the best to watch? no horror shit, please. i don't like horrors, Alice In Wonderland is horror enough for me, and i can't wait for the remake. i don't like gory horror.

i've heard a lot of people talk about broke back mountain, that millionaire one and i can't even think of another.


suggestions please.

i just watched the trailer, and i'll say i would've watched this if i hadn't seen once were warriors. that film made my heart sink, i can't watch it again and i don't think i could face watching similar films.

Well if anyone wants to be technical, the decade isn't over until 2010 is over, so if you want to say the past ten years, 1999 counts.

No, we are at the start of a new decade. 2010-2019, thats the new decade, the last started in 2000 and ended in 2009, that is ten years, thats a decade.

actually Mass Effect was right mate :

year 0 doesn't exist so it takes year 1-10 to get a decade

therefor next decade starts in 2011

first do the knowledge, then ...


oh yeah, before i forget:

"Eternal sunshine ..." great indeed

The first year is year 1. There was no year zero. Therefore the first decade A.D. ended December 31, 0010. If your way was right, one of the decades would only have 9 years. Are you willing to live with such a travesty? I didn't think so.


Let me put it simply to you imbeciles out there who can't get around the fact that the numbers with zero at the end belong to the previous decade....When somebody asks you to count to ten, which number do you start with? Zero?

Who gives a flying fuck about the first year, we're talking about the here and now.

1990 was not part of the eighties but the start of the 90's. 1990-1999 is ten years, 2000-2009 IS TEN YEARS!

What is a decade?...a ten year period. Why the fuck is it so hard to understand.

2010-2019 is TEN FUCKING YEARS!!!

Requiem for a dream was awesome. Revolver was a crazy fucking film.

Plus the majority of films Mentioned above. Mullholland drive was insane.
