Thank you : ) When you get time you have to see the signal. I did not know anything about it but Gambit insisted that I watch it. LOVE IT. It is weird and hard to figure out. Once you catch on you will laugh and wince and the same time.

Also the singing detective was a great find. It is a weird musical that I'm sure will not be for everyone but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

My favorites from your list are:

Fried Green Tomatoes, Pulp Fiction, Memento, The Prestige, Frailty (which I was going to suggest to you, but noticed I had just missed it on your list,) and Twelve Monkeys.

Suggestion for you: The Gift with Cate Blanchett.

The Gift... Thank you for the suggestion I really like that movie.

LazyKing said...

I'll watch it, the signal!!

Wow! I've only seen about half of these! I can't wait to check out the rest. Thanks for such a comprehensive list.
Have you seen "The Descent" It definitely has the creepy suspenseful factor.

I did see "The Descent". I misjudged it because I am biased against movies like that but I really did like it, even though it made me very uncomfortable.
