Films for these long, dark nights

Anyone got a recommendation for a decent DVD to buy/rent, to see these Winter nights away?  Something with a decent plot,  good bit of action, well directed - none of this "shaky-cam" stuff, please :smile

Remake

of Total Recall was all right the other night - different enough but similar enough if you get my drift.


Also, Safehouse was good too.

Bourne Legacy  -  took some getting into / understanding WTF was going on, but when that was sorted that was good too.

Suggestions

DDD - not bad, thought the follow-up DDD-2 was better though.

Haven't seen "Ted" yet - will look out for it.   Isn't "Homeland" too much of a tub-thumping jingoistic propaganda show, something like "24" became?

Prometheus was brilliant, saw it in the cinema last year.   Only thing I saw, actually.

Remake of Total Recall, eh?  Didn't know there was one.   Trouble with the Bourne stuff (particularly the 2nd one) was that it was all shaky-cam.   I absolutely hate shaky-cam - it's just an excuse for lazy directing and it utterly old hat now.

*

Saw Gran Torino and Unforgiven in a C.E. box set since xmas - both were very good.   I'd also recommend Inception for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.   Took a good couple of viewings to figure out wth was going on, though.

Films.

One man's Oscar-winner is another man's pile of shite but here's some I liked;

The Mexican
Collateral
Four Brothers
Derailed
Red
Lucky Number Slevin
The Other Guys
Shoot 'Em Up
Last Man Standing
3:10 To Yuma
The Expendables.
Cinderella Man.
Babel.

Some oldies in there. Take a peek at film review sites like IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes.

Smidget, have you seen another Aussie classic called The Castle?
