    If you liked that, you might like The Prestige even better!!

    Both are great.

    Thank you. I do plan to watch that film as well when I get some more time. I have a thing for those snapper type of endings in The Illusionist that are also found in The Sixth Sense and A Tale of Two Sisters (Korea)

    I guess I'll throw in my 2c worth.
    if you want the hell scared out of you the exorcist will do that.
    good creepy fun - Lord of Illusians is pretty good
    Troy was enjoyable
    and if you have 3 hours Little Big Man is one of the best westerns I've seen.

    loved this one

    Depending on what type of movies you enjoy,try The Wolds Fastest Indian, I loved it. It makes you laugh, cry and tear your hair out.

    I really liked Jacob's Ladder.

    It's one of those that you can watch several times and get something different out of it each time.

    Also pi (as in 3.14159...) is very good.
    From my queue on Netflix:
    Stranger than Fiction
    The Terminal
    The Experiment (very good)
    Flight 93 (suspense.. good)
    Lost In America
    Network
    Pulp Fiction
    Raising Arizona
    187 (Sam Jackson in one of his best)
    American Beauty
    Being There
    Benny and Joon
    Broken Flowers
    Crumb (Robt. Crumb.. truly weird)
    Das Boot
    The Swimming Pool

    Don't waste your time or money on:

    Black Dahlia (and I love De Palma films)
    Harsh Times

    I enjoy most movies, so it's easier to list the few I disliked.

    I agree, The Prestige was very good!

    I thought Night at the Museum was funny and cute.

    I wasn't impressed the Casino Royal...may be a nice action movie but not James Bond movie level. IMHO
