You must try watching Forrest Gump. Well, its kinda boring because there are only few actions and dialogues between two people are too long, but the story itself is good. It became famous because with the line " Life is a like a box of chocolates, you never know what your going to get."

Hausu (English title: House), 1977.

If you’re open to Japanese movies with subtitles, this haunted house horror-comedy is awesome. But only watch it if you like stuff that is both funny and extremely bizarre. The entire movie has a surreal, dreamlike feel to it. This one never gets old for me.

I'm still just scratching my head as to why hardly none of you ever saw the original James Caan movie entitled ROLLERBALL :confused: I was even a Star Wars fan of the original 1970s edition along with the Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi>>> but none of those movies spoke to me like the original ROLLERBALL did. If nothing else then pull up The Ending of Rollerball on Youtube. Even to this day that movie ending still sends chills up my spine.

To me it was by far James Caan's best appearance on the Silver Screen. Not to mention the awesome performance by John Houseman. And I'm not a huge movie goer>> nor am I a person that makes it a point to see all the latest movies. But in the 1970s there were no movies that moved or affected me like ROLLERBALL and Stanley Kubrick's CLOCKWORK ORANGE. Both of those movies were way ahead of their time and are still movies that force you to think about the world we're presently living in. Oh well I tried :(
