DOGMA!!! that film rules, but Schindler's list is the best example of acting you could ever wish to see, if you haven't seen it... watch it!

I saw the movie when it first came out in the early 90's. I was living in Holland at the tyme. It was a very moving movie. I thought about it for awhile. I ave the misic sound track to it and it really puts me in a mood swing.
I think the only other movie that effected me like that was Saving Private Ryan.

Schindler's List: had no effect on me. It was movie, plain and simple.
Seven Years in Tibet: I thought it was good.

Schindler's List was very good...Saving Private Ryan was too much for me, i could only watch an hour of it and i had to leave.

If you live to be a hundred, i hope i live to be a hundred minus one so i never have to live without you!

Yea, Saving Private Ryan can take it out of you, but it is a real reminder that war isn't the glory it's made out to be in the old 50's 60's 70's war movies, it's about, blood sweat and tears, no glory, no honour. Just death.

S.P.R. was one of the first War mopvies to tell the whole story, Pearl Harbor looks like its going to be cool, you know the Japanese tried to pay the studio off so that the movie wouldn't be produced.

I'd already seen All Quiet on the Western Front and Das Boot (the OLD version), so I had already seen real warfare in a movie (All Quiet features ACTUAL combat footage of guys getting blown apart, none of that pansy stock footage of a plane strafing a japanese ship. this was guys jumping out of a trench and getting blasted).

Movies never move me the ones that I thought had a chance are:

Saving Private Ryan
and the above mentioned movie.

SPR was quite funny in some scenes, like when the comm guy gets his face blown off(<font color=yellow>*** Nazi_Dude kills Comm_Dude with a headshot ***</font>), and when the idiot with the explosive forgets to let go, and gets <u>GIBBED</u>(<font color=yellow>Idiot kills self with grenade</font>)

And Fight Club r0x0rs my b0x0rs. I was blown away first time I watched it. Totally changed my way of thinking. I recommend it to anyone.

BTW, guess where my sig came from.

'October Sky'. I was all set to not like that movie (the trailers looked pretty sappy) but it won me over. Oh and 'The Shawshank Redemption'. I loved the story when I first read it and DREADED a film "adaptation" of it, but now I like the film more.
A book that did that same thing to me was 'Dandilion Wine' by Ray Bradbury.

Im not often moved my movies and at this moment i cant remember one that ever has. Although i havent seen the films you are all talking about except for a small piece of SPR, oh and ive seen gladiator. However my best film of all time would have to be the Matrix.

Most moving film I ever saw would have to be 'Innocent Moves'. Call me crazy, but that was a brilliant movie. I basically never watch war films, so I can't say anything about Scindler's List etc.

As for books, I'd have to say Silver Screen by Justina Robson. Some very thought-provoking concepts, keeps you hanging on to the very end, definately not light reading.

Shindler's List was an excellent movie both on technical part, i.e. photography, directing, scripting, as well as describing the Nazis' atrocities.
