    You have got to be kidding.

    Biodome was the biggest piece of dog****e I'd every seen. I even asked the video store for a refund it was so crap, didn't get one smile.gif

    Errr Hackers I heard was crap as well, haven't seen it, yet.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 483 ✭✭Helv

    Glengary Glenross.....yawn what a boring film. Funny in the Simpsons tho the way they rip off Gill. Hehehe.
    And wait a min., Air Force One. Yawn another boring film. Must agree wiht the usual suspects. Classic.

    Yeah Helv,

    Glengarry Glen Ross is an aquired taste, but then again I work in sales, so I have experienced some of the crap that happens in that film. The scene with Alex Baldwin is a classic thou.

    "1st Prize you win a Cadallic
    2nd Prize you win a set of steak knives
    3rd Prize you lose your job" smile.gif

    Hehehe and of course "Coffee's for Closers"

    Yeah Usual Suspects is a class film as well, but not in my top ten at the mo wink.gif


  • Subscribers Posts: 1,911 ✭✭✭Draco

    Hmm...Air Force One? Not exactly what you'd call a brilliant film...

    Sorry Baz but Hackers definitly doesn't deserve a place in any top ten..

    But Bio Dome...Iron man, Iron man, does everthing and Iron can! ten in no order

    Chasing Amy
    Usual Suspects
    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking barrells
    Die Hard II

    They may not be the best or most thought provoking films, but they're the ones that I enjoy the most.

    I wait now for you to tear apart the list.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 159 ✭✭Brit

    Well, the above suggestions certainly do seem to cover the majority of the 'usual' style movies. For your delectation, I thought I'd post some alternative viewing - most of which can be obtained from video outlets on submission of at least £50.00 and the correct password *wink* *wink*

    1) Rod Hull's Guide to TV Arial installation
    2) Grandma Does a Dump III
    3) Candy's Little Sister, Sugar
    4) The best of Animal Cruelty, 2
    5) Armoured cars - Diana's Revenge
    6) Eating your feet
    7) Botulism, the Forgotten Years
    8) Cooking with Pasta
    9) Debbie Does Dallas, Texas and Vegas.
    10) Too Rude To Mention - Dwarfs and Chairs

    I do not advise watching more than 2 of the above in one sitting.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 159 ✭✭Brit

    Sorry, couldn't let this slip:

    "the harrier. and even thats sad cos if a harrier flew that close to a building it would blow all the glass inwards instantly"

    Absolute rubbish. Skysraper windows are specifically designed to withstand air moving at immense velocities - the empire state building is designed to withstand air moving at a true velocity of 150mph.

    And the harrier was operating for the most part in VTOL mode - so the thrust was directed downwards, and to the rear of it.

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 159 ✭✭Brit

    Anorak? lol smile.gif Nah, I've seen them up close and personal, I have a friend who flies one and I've stood no more than 50 feet away whilst one landed. Oh, and I've flown in one too. And a Seaking, and a Jaguar, and a Tornado, and a Lynx...

    You get the point smile.gif -- when it comes to fast attack aircraft, especially marine (Fleet Air Arm) varieties, I know a bit smile.gif

    Air Force One was sh*te. unbelivably crap effects for such a big budget film.. (seen it in the cinema .. you could nearly see the strings in the model plane)
    True Lies??? hahahahaha even worse. Arnold Swarzwhatever in his lamest role ever.. (well apart from that kindergarten cop thing) only good thing? the harrier. and even thats sad cos if a harrier flew that close to a building it would blow all the glass inwards instantly.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,453 ✭✭✭sam t smith

    Chasing Amy and Clerks?

    Nice to see that posters didn’t take this thread too seriously.

    With hindsight I don’t think the phantom menace makes his top 10 now!
