Seeing as FC's release is upon us and 10KB's next on the docket.  Grin

I'm curious what films everyone will show their group to inspire them to play. I have my short list but I'm curious what everyone else will throw up to be seen.

Usual Suspects, Heist (and most David Mamet crime films), Shakedown (w/Peter Weller, better than it was given credit for), Physical Evidence (w/Burt Reynolds & Theresa Russell), The Sting (just because), plus both Saat Po Lung and Dou Fo Sin (both Hong Kong crime/action films starring Donnie Yen: SPL or Kill Zone and Flash Point respectively)

Thoughts?

In my haste to do the post, I forgot about Heat and To Live & Die in LA. Thief, The Killer, Hard Boiled, and Black Rain are all good too. You could even toss in The Warriors as well.

Clockers goes on my list as well.

If we're gonna invoke The Mann, let's not leave out Miami Vice.

I have to recommend The Departed.  And, even though I didn't think it was a great movie, The Fast and the Furious has a lot of potential, too.

I also second Eastern Promises.  A spectacular movie, and Viggo-tastic to boot.  Who else can kick ass while unarmed and naked?

Or Collateral. Tom Cruise is wasted in heroic roles.

I would really only consider the first, especially in the beginning of the film.

Maybe I don't understand what 10kb Is. Not because of what's on the list, but because of what isn't.

Boondock Saints
Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
The Professional

Others that are already on lists that also make mine:
The Killer
Italian Job (first one)
Nikita

And a great number of classic film noir, which may or may not fit due to time period constraints:
(anything with Bogie, Touch of Evil etc...)

The only list that really matters for defining what it is, is mine technically Smiley Plenty of modern and classic noir in there with a number of crime and street films...if the list were exhaustive, I'd probably have well over 100 films added for actual influences (however small) plus some books, real places, a few video games, some comics...
