    Lol...as I recall things didn't end up well in the end for Clint. Care for some mushrooms with that meal?

    A few "different ones" stand out for me.

    The first is "The Big Blue" Directed by Luc Besson, with Jean-Marc Barr, Rosanna Arquette and Jean Reno. Its about a open diver (one breath and go as deep as you can) his lifelong rival/friend. His sort of half man half fish nature and how his family actually might be dolphins. Very beautifully shot and interestingly acted, but 95% of the people that watch it look at me strangely and so..."HUH?" when its over.

    The second is "Babette's gastebud" aka "Babette's Feast". A Denmark import film with subtitles only...about the liberating affect of good food...shot in a 10 building village in the hinterlands of Denmark. BTW it won the Best Foreign Language Film Acadamy Award.

    And lastly "Brotherhood of the Wolf". How can you beat a French Kung Fu Native Americian Horror Saga set in revolutionary France? With Monica Bellucci as a prostitute hitwoman ...for the Vatician! (carfeul all...she is very naked in this one!...) Weird...well perhaps to some..but I loved it! Oh...if you watch it don't use the dubbed version. The french with subtitles is MUCH better.

    i have to second the recommendation for "The Assassination Bureau." It's long been a favorite for me, but then again i had a schoolgirl's crush on Oliver Reed and he's rather handsome in the film.

    Another odd film for the ranks: "Photographing Fairies"
    See the IMDB information here.
    It's the story of a photographer during the post WWI era who goes around debunking photographs of ghosts, fairies, et cetera. Then he finds a photo that he cannot debunk and the weirdness ensues. Very strange, very beautiful film with a haunting soundtrack.

    My vote for the wierdest has to be Consuming Passions (1988). I am not going to elaborate but rent it and laugh. Don't let the title give you the wrong idea. It is not one of those movies.

    Regards to all,

    People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.

    WoeSis - An interesting companion piece to "Photographing Fairies" worth seeing is "Fairy Tale: A True Story".

    This is another crack at the Cottingley Fairies Hoax(?) made in about 1996 that takes a different approach. And it has great cameo peformances by Peter O'Toole (as spiritualist Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) and Harvey Keitel (as spiritualist-debunker Harry Houdini), who are both drawn into the argument about the photos' "reality".

    I will go to my grave insisting that the worst film of all time is BLACK DEVIL DOLL FROM HELL (1984). It's worse than forgotten: it was hardly ever known.

    Only three people showed up to the premiere: an extra and two movie critics

    You might consider this one for the worst: http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0088824/

    The problem is that no one can see it!
