Morning Mek! \:\-\)

> Oh trust me, WALL-E is one of the best movies ever. If you look at it purely from an artistic perspective, it's beautiful. (And it's one of those movies where the pay-off is worth it)

I'll certainly suggest it.

> And 'Eternal Sunshine'? Dude, can't go wrong with a Michael Gondry film. If you like that movie, I highly recommend 'Science of Sleep' and 'Be Kind, Rewind', both from the same director. What's so cool about his work is that he uses no CG whatsoever in his work, which is really prevalent in 'Science of Sleep'. (Plus any Gondry film is enough to score chick points, especially if they're the indie artsy types... well, excluding 'Dave Chappelle's Block Party', that is)

I have heard terrible things about Be Kind, Rewind.

> You can blame Alan Moore (and Frank Miller) for a lot of things. I heard somewhere that Moore didn't anticipate 'Watchmen' ushering in the moral decay of superhero comics (which you can see a lot of these days in both the mainstream AND in the indies)... but I could be wrong there.

I think comics as a medium 'growing up' doesn't necessarily mean the moral decay of all comics. Certainly it means the moral decay (or more correctly the loss of innocence) of adult oriented comics.

> No, I haven't... but I'd love to. My dad and I both love Kill Bill, so I think that'd be something we'd both enjoy.

Well there are six of them as follows:

Ideally what you want is this:

Which is the 6 main movies in the one boxed set. It should be noted thats a UK website selling the European Region 2 disks. So I imagine you would need to find an american equivalent if you ever want to get them.
