You might like Freeway. It is a great movie with Reese Witherspoon, Kiefer Sutherland and Brittany Murphy made in 1996.

If you like Fight Club and Reservoir Dogs you’d probably like Amorres Perros and maybe Babel and Secuestro Express.

The Limey
The Heist
Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Amores Peros

Anything by Quentin Tarantino.

Watch the movie Layer Cake with Daniel Craig before he became Bond. It’s not very well-known, but it’s absolutely brilliant.

I also have to second Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.

@hungryhungryhortence i have seen all of them except amores perros and enjoyed them all, and since thats the second mention amores perros has got i think i best take a closer look.

Firefly series, followed by the movie Serenity

Hmmmn… how about:

Miller’s Crossing
Once Upon a Time in America
Brooklyn Bridge
Dark City
To Live and Die in L.A.

Based on your taste, I PROMISE you will love “Hard Eight,” by the director who did “Boogie Nights,” another great movie.

Rarebear's avatar

Just to keep going on the sci fi/fantasy bit,
Battlestar Galactica, the new series
The Prisoner, the old series
Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension
Free Enterprise (if you’re a Star Trek geek like me)

sigh. I am geek. Hear me roar.

Deuces Wild
I second the firefly serenity combo

Dr_Dredd's avatar

There’s always the old favorites: the original Star Wars trilogy.

I really didn’t care for the new one.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Straw Dogs
Snatch (as suggested by @hungryhungryhortence)
A Clockwork Orange (wow, also on her list; I hadn’t seen it, I swear)

Hey, let’s go to the movies one of these days, @hungryhungryhortence.

poisonedantidote's avatar

@Dr_Dredd now there is an idea. it sure has been some time since i last watched em.

Vantage Point was good
The Bourne series was good (based on your intelligent action preferences)
Once Upon a Time in Mexico

Army of Darkness—it is arguably the greatest movie ever.

being john malkovitch
fear and loathing in las vegas
donnie darko
the departed
the hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy
Maybe early scrubs tv series?

oh, and american psycho. uh, barton fink. children of men. City of god. the fall. I think i’m done.

Zen_Again's avatar

I’m with @filmfann plus anything Tarantino, and anything with Ed Norton in it. Literally, all his movies are great.

Naked_Homer's avatar

Oh, if were doing TV series, Arrested Development. Clever writing with out the laugh track. Best show ever to be canceled prematurely by fox.

augustlan's avatar

I second Memento.

@Haleth Did that all come from AD?

“Blue Highway”

TheJoker's avatar

I’d strongly recommed ‘District 9’. Despite being a sci-fi / action movie it has some very interesting & important social commentry.

Zen_Again's avatar

The Game with Michael Douglas.
