Brazil is the best movie ever made, and it didn't include the scene that convinced the producer (If you are really interested you should read The Battle of Brazil).

Which version is your favorite, the one that wins the award?

It's quite muddled...... :roll:

Napolean Dynamite. It is now used as a threat in our household- "If you don't stop that I'll make you watch Napoleon Dynamite"
Of course I live in a fantasy world, this one doesn't have a door policy.

Have no idea if i should post this or not, seeing as i don't know if the film exists anywhere other then my insane, twisted mind. But one night after way too much time awake, I caught a brief glimpse of a film called "Killer Condom" on SBS

OK, just checked, the film does exist. It's nice to know that my mind is not twisted enough to come up with something like that, and that it actually came from someone else's twisted mind.

- It's attack of the Killer Condoms.

I guess that is the English title for "Kondom des Grauens".
That film is based on a series of very popular gay comics (the first that gained mainstream popularity).

Anyone else seen "The Young Poisoner's Handbook"?

Good film to lend to people at work. You'll never have to make the coffees again.

Neither have I but I drink on principle only those non-bottled things I made myself.
Otherwise use the Patrician's recipe (from Nanny Ogg's cookbook).

Add that one to my list too. Seen it twice. SBS is a great channel for incredibly strange picture shows.

There was also Killer Tongue - about a girl whose tongue comes to life & her pet poodles take on human form. Human poodles are totally camp. Read the review here.

I saw "Meaning of Life" by Monty Python, and I am listening to the soundtrack. Let's just say that combination has sent a large shockwave through my very existence.

Would you care for some salmon mousse, or an after dinner mint?
