  • I couldn’t watch the third Millenium.. It was all so confusing and the quality of the film diminished since the second film.. (The original was made for cinema and the other two for TV). The first one is great but the others are just awful.

  • The quote is from “Let the Right One In”.

    Alex, have you seen “Days of Heaven” yet? What about “Badlands”. Two magnificent films, among the best I’ve ever watched.

  • The Thin Red Line is one of my all time favorites. I haven’t seen Days of Heaven or Badlands.

    @Raguabros-I haven’t seen Hornet’s Nest, and the first was great, but I loved the second one too!
