    Um, can you be just a wee bit more specific than that? There's been at least 2 dozen movies made since 1970.

    Action? Horror? Froppy British period films?

    Anything with Keira Knightley is good for me.

    Pirates of the Carribean
    Bend it Like Beckham
    Love Actually

    and other stuff. She is so fine.
     
  6. watch anything that isn't clerks
     
  7. Anything that starts with "Monty Python's"

    The Star Wars movies back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back

    LotR Extended versions (that's what, 11 hours of movie?)

    Magnificent Seven (okay, so it's made before 1970, but it's still a damn good movie)

    Black Hawk Down (still think it's the second most realistic combat movie ever made)

    Saving Private Ryan (Most realistic)

    13th Warrior (who doesn't like Vikings killng things?)

    Animal House (too funny for words)

    The Matrix (not the second 2, those sucked)

    Or just play HALO for the rest of the week.:D

    Hey now, that was a fine movie.
     
  9. Yeah. Except that the begining kind of sucked. And the middle wasn't that great. And the less said about the end, the better, but it was a good movie.

    Rock on

    clerks is a classic, along with any other kevin smith production. including mallrats, chasing amy, dogma, and jay and silent bob strike back. although i didn't watch his newest one called jersey girl, looked like a chick flic.
     

  17. Despite the school play-level acting, it was a well put-together comedy....except they forgot to include humor.

    I once saw (somewhere on teh net) a review of the movie pi. It said something like, "this movie captures the realism of the human experience in a way that no other movie ever has, except for clerks."

    I guess it was meant as a joke, seeing as the only real similarity is the lack of color.

    Well, maybe not. Clerks was capturing the inanity of life on film, and Pi was about capturing the loss of sanity (which, I think it's done the best job I've ever seen). Realism of human experience? Yeah.
     
  19. Actually, clerks is brilliant compared to Paris, Texas. Paris, Texas=worst movie ever. Seriously bad.
