    Suggest a movie for the person above, and then describe a type of movie you want.

    I'll have to go first since there is no one above me. I liked Sweeney Todd, Lord of the Rings and Star Trek. Suggest me a movie!

    The Last Starfighter.

    I would like a good political drama.

    (also, moving this to Fun Stuff).

    A Civil Action

    I'd like a good action/comedy that isn't The Big Hit (but comes close!)

    Run Lola Run (German)

    Recommend me a good movie that all takes place mostly at one location.
    I am fascinated by movies like The Cube, Phone Booth, Man on the Ledge... movies were it's driven by the actors and rarely has a change in scenery. I saw one more that I can't remember the name of, but it was a guy that was chased by a gang of 6 kids and he's stuck up a tree in a park for the whole movie (Bonus points if you can name that one for me too)

    I'm struggling, The Crying Game, perhaps? It's not really from a solely transgender perspective and has a lot about the IRA in it.

    A good Spy movie which isn't from the Mission Impossible series or James Bond?

    Not answering the movie part, but yaaa Crying Game isn't really at all what I was asking, and that's fine, I didn't figure anyone could come up with something ;P

    The Bourne Identity
    (Though I'd also recommend Sniper, not quite Spy but still action/mystery/government/thriller)

    Knight and Day - it's Tom Cruise, but not same style as Mission Impossible, and he is a spy.

    something like "The Vanishing"
