    I have not seen this one yet. "Monsters (2010)" Roger ebert gave it 3.5 stars out of 4.

    Quote a filmmaker dare to imagine a truly alien lifeform...... So let me say that "Monsters" is a rather special achievement. Think of it as a movie that M. Night Shyamalan (and we) would be happy he made. It's based on characters, relationships, fear and mostly unseen menace, and although the movie's special effects are important, it's not about special effects.http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/monsters-2010
    here is a link

    I also have not yet seen this one

    Quote A young man, in love with a woman who can never be his, discovers a way to fulfil his dreams. In their childhood the three were the best of friends, the perfect triangle. But years later when Lena returns to her sleepy home the tone of the relationship changes and it is Robin she loves. Bill has discovered a method of duplication and decides to make an exact replica of the woman he cannot have... .with disastrous consequences for them all.
    "Four Sided Triangle (1953)"

    Related films that I appreciate

    Kurt Vonnegut's "Harrison Bergeron (1995)"

    Quote Harrison Bergeron lives in a typical suburban town in the year 2053. The audience is told that after the second American Revolution—a war begun due to an ongoing economic depression that was a result of a combination of technological advancement and a widening disparity between the very rich and the very poor—it was mandated that all people be equal in all things. To this end, the social norm of this society has become egalitarianism. Citizens strive to be of equal wealth, intelligence, athletic prowess and social status to all around them. Through a process of selective breeding, mankind is perfecting the perfectly average human being. What is not accomplished through arranged marriages is made up for through technological means, the most prominent of which are only showing mind numbing shows on TV, and a headband device worn by all citizens which modulates intelligence, dialing up or down a person's IQ in order to arrive at a 'perfect' 100.


    A short film adaptation of Harrison Bergeron, "2081 (2009)"



    "Farenheit 451 (1966)"
    In an oppressive future, a fireman whose duty is to destroy all books begins to question his task.

    I watched some movies that contain cloning in the story lines over the weekend.

    I believe Moon (2009) was already mentioned.
    "Sam Bell has a three year contract to work for Lunar Industries. For the contract's entire duration, he is the sole employee based at their lunar station. With only two weeks remaining before he may return home to his wife and the child he never has seen, he has an accident...."

    I watched it here
    http://putlocker.bz/watch-moon-onlin...putlocker.html

    "Anna to the Infinite Power" is a 1982 science-fiction thriller film about a young teenager who learns that she was the product of a cloning experiment.

    That is a great list kanishk! Thanks.

    Like the movie already mentioned; "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" (a romantic comedy) this one is also a droll, bittersweet comedy about the end of the world.

    "last Night (1998)"


    Also from 1998, one of favorite films!
    "The Red Violin (1998)" is not exactly a typical "fantasy" but a spiritual drama.
    The story follows a mysterious violin tracing its history and owners through five countries and three centuries.

    Super suggestions, kanishk and Delight!

    Recently I watched

    Appleseed


    I did not know until now that there was an English-dubbed version.
    I watched as a real nerd the Japanese film with subs.

    Quote In an 'utopian' society created at the end of the third world war, a female warrior who has been plucked from the badlands begins to see cracks in this new facade.
    Thank you Dan33!

    ~~~

    There is a second film, called Appleseed Ex-Machina.
    I am watching it as I type, it is great so far.

    Anyone my age (44) may remember this movie, almost like a dream. It was a made for tv movie called The Bermuda Depths.

    "The Bermuda Depths is a Japanese / American co-production 1978 fantasy film originally broadcast as a made-for-TV movie written by Arthur Rankin Jr. of Rankin/Bass fame. Special effects and creature elements were handled by Tsuburaya Productions, most famous for the Ultraman franchise."

    Very hard to find, although it apparently can be ordered directly on DVD-R from Warner Bros. Archive service.

    Who remembers this?

    There's something that doesn't make sense. Let's go and poke it with a stick.

    Wow, I never knew about any of the recent postings and look forward to hunting them up.
    Thanks so very much!!

    The thing I really like about the internet today is that so far so good on seeing movies from everywhere, easy.
    Thanks so much internet!!

    I like hearing the languages while reading subtitles Chocolate.
    It seems that watching something like the "Last Night" of the world has deep bits in its fantasy.
    The ending saw two people learning to love each other deliberately because there was no time left and they did love each other in the very last second.

    This is just one of the best movies I ever forgot.

    "I Heart Huckabees (1994)"
    "Determined to solve the coincidence of seeing the same conspicuous stranger three times in a day, Albert hires a pair of existentialist detectives, who insist on spying on his everyday life while sharing their views on life and the nature of the universe."



    I found it here
    http://putlocker.bz/watch-i-heart-hu...putlocker.html

    And I had forgotten bout "The Rapture (1991)". NOT A "HAPPY" FLICK but worthwhile.
    "It stars Mimi Rogers as a woman who converts from a swinger to a born-again Christian after learning that a true Rapture is upon the world."

    Skeptics and the paranormal converge as better than average B grade horror presenting witches, voodoo and demons

    "NIGHT OF THE EAGLE (1962)"
    Is it fair to stop your wife from practicing the Craft when she is only doing it because of those other witches after you?



    "Weird Woman" From the series "Inner Sanctum" 1954
    When a college professor brings his new bride home, the community cannot appreciate her exotic ways, especially practice of voodoo.



    Curse Of The Demon (1957)
    based on M.R. James' classic story, "The Casting of the Runes,"
    "The echoing corridors, the barren countrysides, everything reflects back the fear and paranoia that slowly begins to grip our protagonists. Even a library becomes a horrifying labyrinth straight out of Crete. There is a suffocating sense of unease that occasionally veers into the hallucinatory..."

    Movies about mermaids, selkies and sea people anyone?

    Miranda (1948): A light comedy, the film is about a beautiful and playful mermaid



    "Night Tide (1961)": A sailor meets a mysterious woman who works as a mermaid in a sideshow. Is she human or a siren from the deep?



    "Ponyo (2009)": Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale "The Little Mermaid" in which a young and overeager goldfish named Ponyo seeks to become human.

    Movies with Camelot, Arthur and Merlin.

    "Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)"
    "...as funny as a movie can get ,Grail is a tough-minded picture -- as outraged about the human propensity for violence as it is outrageous in its attack on that propensity. (Richard Schickel TIME Magazine)."



    "Merlin (Mini series 1998)"
    Quote Queen Mab (Miranda Richardson) tries to use Merlin (Sam Neill), a wizard, in her attempt to control Britain and to bring back the power of magic. But this man of conscience finds an ally in the mysterious Lady of the Lake. As Ambrosia (Billie Whitelaw), the woman who raises him, says: "Magic has no power over the human heart."http://www.spiritualityandpractice.c...ms.php?id=1386




    "The Mists of Avalon (2001)"
    Julianna Margulies, Joan Allen and Anjelica Huston in this long TV movie which retells the Arthurian legend from the perspective of the women who shaped events with magical powers. Critics were not as happy as TV audiences like me.

    The same night that Thomas Reilly (Robert Downey, Jr.) is born, four souls learn they must complete some unfinished business.

    playlist


    "Beetlejuice (1988)"
    Newlyweds Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin, killed in a freak auto accident, find that thanks to a century's worth of bureaucratic red tape, they're on a long celestial waiting list. They must occupy their old house as ghosts for the next fifty years. Alas, the house is now owned by insufferable yuppies....



    The Ghost Goes West (1935)
    a Scottish castle is disassembled brick by brick and put back together in America. The several-hundred year old ghost who haunts it goes along.

    I watched the Alien raiders and the acting and script were really well done for a scary monster alien movie that was gory.

    Here are some B movie youtube offerings I found

    "The Speed of Thought (2011)"
    The film has some similarities to "Inception (2010)" and "Limitless (2011)". The conscious and unconscious parts of the mind are used for governmental espionage, with Joshua Lazarus (Stahl) attempting to uncover the source of a fictional ailment, called Wittman's disease.




    This I have not seen but it was reviewed as charming. the return was also reviewed as charming. That is if you enjoy stories of little people living under the floorboards? Borrowers borrow from the people that live in the house.

    "The Borrowers (1992)" Part One


    "The Borrowers (1992)" Part Two


    "Return of the Borrowers (1993)" Part One

    13th Floor was REALLY good, thanks for the recomendation.

    I saw Pacific Rim, definitely NOT "chick" flick...but had some interesting ideas (mostly bad ones )

    Watched them back to back nights, noticed that the "mind meld" consciousness transfer special effects were nearly identical (looked like Stargate series wormhole through neurons)....thought it was a neat synch...
