Tonight, I'm suggesting the movie Jumper, released in 2008. Well, It's quite hard to find good movies for the finest users of the forum. I must say that it's easy to find good French movies, but there is already a large choice on the forum. If you find it, I recommend the movie "Madame Irma", with the actors of "Les 3 frères", but I didn't find any English subtitles.
I don't know if aa1234779, shadow.97, Fuj and the users of the forum will like Jumper. I hope they won't be disappointed. it's not an intellectual movie, but at least it's a bit entertaining.

Tonight, another movie, released in 1999, is available on the forum. At this time I went to the cinema to watch it. The forum didn't exist yet.
Maybe some of you heard of it: I'm talking about the movie Fight Club.


I must say that I didn't understand everything when it was released. Who is Tyler? Was it Jack? It wasn't clear.
In fact, Fight Club has one Kantian philosophical idea. The way in which we appear to ourselves is not necessarily who we actually are. The real Tyler Durden is unknown to us. All we have are these two images of Tyler Durden (Edward Norton and Brad Pitt).

The movie "Fight Club" boomed on the Hollywood scene in 1999; directed by David Fincher and written by Jim Uhls, who adapted the novel by Chuck Palahniuk. The film was highly controversial and not the type of feature most parents would feel comfortable allowing their children to watch. The core of this story hints around the conundrum of modern urban life. The main character and narrator of the film is an educated typical social construct named "Jack;" played by Edward Norton. Jack is a bachelor in his 30's whose biggest concern is how to decorate his apartment. Jack has reached a point in his life where he seems to be in doubt of his own existence, and simply going through the motions of life in a numb state. The beginning of the movie illustrates scene after scene of Jack boarding planes, and sitting at his desk at work. His entire life changes when he meets Tyler Durden, played by Brad Pitt – a witty, confident, and overall seemingly boundless personality.
Tyler Durden represents everything that Jack is not. Tyler is free from modern ritualistic routines and seems to have a mysterious and intriguing perspective on life – a keen ability to see through the social fabric of reality. After meeting the charismatic Tyler on the airplane, Jack comes home to find his apartment engulfed in flames. Not knowing what to do, or where to go from here, Jack calls his newly found friend Tyler. Together Jack and Tyler have a few beers at a bar where they discuss the mediocrity of the common consensus for the standard of living a modern lifestyle. Shortly thereafter, a scene in the film takes place behind the bar where Tyler asks Jack to hit him in the face, and shortly after, a small crowd gathers when they start fighting each other.

If we go to Palestine with the stars of the forum one day, humbert, Vasudev, usman... you are probably wondering if there will be a Fight Club too. Well, hopefully we won't have time to fight if we want to make some good goat cheese and barter it with local peasants. And maybe we'll have to make soaps too, in there is no more local marketplace. After all, it is the "yardstick of civilization".

I know that humbert, aa1234779 and the users of the forum like clever movies. That's why tonight, the movie 1492, released in 1992, is available on the forum.
1492 is a French-Spanish epic historical drama film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Roselyne Bosch, which tells the fictionalized story of the travels to the New World by the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus (Gérard Depardieu) and the effect this had on indigenous peoples.
This is the English version. Note that this movie might not be appropriate for everyone on the forum: it contains some suggestive dialogues, curse words, and a lot of bloody, graphic violence.

Note that a review of this film and a Brrip are already available on the forum.

Today, the movie Madame Irma is available on the forum.
There are no English subtitles available. But those who are speaking French fluently on the forum like panzer24 or humbert will probably watch it with great interest.

The story: Francis, who is in his forties, manages the French subsidiary of an American high-tech company. But the shareholders suddenly decide to close it. Depressed by the idea of being unemployed and the prospect of losing his second wife, Francis decides to consult a fortune-teller. The experience is a real eye-opener for him and the start of a new career: He pretends to be a fortune teller himself and turns into Madame Irma. How to explain that to his wife Clotilde?

Sadly I don't speak French. I can read an article in French and get an idea of what it's about. This is due to French's proximity to English and Spanish.

Well, I know that aa1234779 and little usmangujjar are not only looking for documentaries or movies, they want to watch the most entertaining stories.
That's why I'm suggesting the movies Jean de Florette and Manon of the springs.
Jean de Florette is a 1986 period tragedy film directed by Claude Berri, based on a novel by Marcel Pagnol. It is followed by Manon des Sources. The 2 films take place in rural Provence. In the movie Jean de Florette, two local farmers plot to trick a newcomer out of his newly inherited property.

Tonight, I'm going to talk about another movie. This movie is not only a show, in my opinion, it's a must-see.
Some of you may have watched it when it was released, in 1991. But I don't know if some users like Vasudev or shadow.97 watched it, they were probably too young at this time. And yet, I wouldn't advise them to watch it at night.
Of course, I'm talking about the movie Terminator 2.

Link: https://ok.ru/video/1028527033072

The story: Over 10 years have passed since the first cyborg called The Terminator tried to kill Sarah Connor and her unborn son, John Connor. However another Terminator is sent back through time called the T-1000, which is more advanced and more powerful than its predecessor. The Mission: to kill John Connor when he's still a child.

I watched it several times on Star Movies.
