So, let's figure out how the tastes of this forum run, so that we can get an idea of what to expect in the future. What are everyone's favorite movies?

For me, it would be L.A. Story and Joe vs. The Volcano.

Generally, LotR are my favorite movies. However, I just got back from watching Serenity with the comp sci club, and I really like that movie.

Here's a list of 5 movies I really like, which may or may not be my "top five", and in no particular order:

1) American Beauty
2) Girl, Interrupted
3) An Affair to Remember
4) Chasing Amy
5) Gattaca

I tend toward dramas, when I can find them, with leanings toward seriousness more often than anything else. I do, however, enjoy a good action flick or "fluff piece" (such as "Bring It On") when I run across them.

Hmm... just listing off movies I've enjoyed are hard, just because of the multitude of them.

I've liked most of the geek series.

The Lotr series was genius, the original matrix and star wars kicked ass. The HP series sucked after the second one.

Due to my younger brother's obsession with Quentin Tarantino, I've seen many of those. (though I saw kill bill before on my own).

One movie I will never forget, however, is an independent film from the creators of southpark, which they made in college. "Cannibal the Musical." Absolute genius. (and the most incredible director's commentary ever. They intentionally got themselves drunk while they commented)

My favorite movie of all times is The Empire Strikes Back.

But that's just my premeditated answer to this oft-asked question; I'm not even sure if it's true. I tend to use "Millennium Actress" or "Porco Rosso" or "Whisper of the Heart" for "favorite anime movies" but they are movies by all accounts.

If I were to make a short list, it'd include
Adaptation
Army of Darkness
Desperado
Dr. Strangelove Or How I Learned to Love the Bomb
The Little Mermaid
Passion of the Christ
Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country

A handful come to mind, but I always have trouble with such topics: I try not to categorize a movie as "My favorite".

-Pulp Fiction. This one keeps coming up when I look back in my head for favorite movies. I'm not entirely sure why. I think it's a combination of the style, the overall outragiousness, and that I saw it late enough in life for me not to dismiss it as nostalgia.

-The Princess Bride. "Offer me money." "Yes, of course!" "Power, that too." "All I have and more." "Offer me anything I could possibly desire." "Yes, anything! Please!" "I want my father back, you son of a bitch."

-The Matrix, original. This, along with Empire Strikes back (and possibly the rest of the original Star Wars trilogy) doesn't usually get a mention when I think of my favorite films. Largely because I've had to deal with all the later stuff made, which my mind refuses to seperate. As much as I liked the later Matrix films (that is, somewhat), they tend to cast a negative view on the first. I still say the first had the best opening ten minutes of any movie I've ever seen, though. I'm a fan of mysterious style. Happens to be my pet peeve with the movie, oddly. "No one can be told what the Matrix is, they must be shown." Followed by a montage of Morpheus telling Neo what the Matrix is.

-Duck Soup. Apparently, when I first saw it (many years ago), I was in histerics. Told my father is was the funniest thing I'd ever seen. Such a wonderfully ridiculous film.


Hmm. I should watch Cube again sometime. Apparently they made sequels.

My top 10 picks (in no order except how I thought of them):

1. Hunt for Red October - Overall a great movie and I think Sean Connery's best character ever.

2. Star Wars ep. IV, V, and VI - These redefined what a movie should be, don't asme me about the latest 3 fiascos

3. The Mothman Prophecies - Only one movie ever freaked me out. This was it.

4. Master and Commander - Ships, guns, swords, explosions. What else is there?

5. BASIC - Go ahead, try to guess the ending.

6. Equilibrium - I want to be a rouge gramaton cleric.

7. The Lord of the Rings - This is to my generation what Star Wars was to my parents...but the books were still better.

8. Primer - Artsy, sci-fi, confusing. One of the smartest movies ever. I need to watch it again.

9. Monty Python and the Holy Grail - "O Lord bless this thy hand grenade that with it thou mayest blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy."

10. Conspiracy Theory - Yeah, I dunno, it's just really good.

Two of them. But the only reason you should watch Hypercube is the opening sequence: the rest of that movie constitutes an atrocity.

I hate threads like this. I always forget something...

The've done Cube²: Hypercube, that much I'm sure of. To be honest, it wasn't as interesting as Cube, and it was filled with pseudophilosophical bullshit and whimsical temporal/spacial anomalies as opposed to a tangible monolithic machine that, aside from shifting around a bit, stayed pretty constant.

Not to mention Hypercube followed with the trend of Horror films to be more about grossing the audience out as opposed to creeping them out.

My two favorites are both of Sofia Coppola's films, "The Virgin Suicides" and "Lost In Translation."

After that, it's a mish-mash. "Amélie" was wonderful. "Ghost World" was also great. I love "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and "Hero," to a lesser extent. "Good Night, and Good Luck" is definitely my favorite movie from last year. The "Lord of the Rings" trilogy is probably my favorite set of epics. "Fight Club" is pretty awesome, still. I own "Seven Years in Tibet" and am proud of it.

Out of all the films I've seen only two have left an impact on me.

The Last Samurai - For some reason I really love this film and I can really emote to the characters.

Equilibrium - I love the cinematography and the visuals in this film. The gun kata was a nice and unique thing about it.

(I've spent far too much time hanging around film students sleep.gif )

Add me too the Pulp Fiction along with Reservoir dogs.
-EDIT-
I love how both moves are written and the way the move is told from different perspectives that all tie in to one in the end. You got to love Tarrotenos acid shot mind.

My top 10 picks (in no order except how I thought of them):

5. BASIC - Go ahead, try to guess the ending.

huh?

props for master and commander, anyway. Underrated flick; I need to see more stuff by Peter Weir.



Alright... I'm just going to break this down by genre in no particular order:

Crime/Heist movies:

Heat - Rich, meticulous, totally engaging. An epic of sorts.

Le Cercle Rouge - A great potboiler from Jean-Pierre Mellville, who got this sort of genre film down to an art form.

Rififi - One of the first and still one of the best of its kind. The heist itself is a 20+ minute sequence with no dialogue.

Goodfellas/Casino - Well, you know.

Battles Without Honor and Humanity - A great, great series of films depicting twenty-five years in the Yakuza of Hiroshima. Probably what Kinji Fukasaku is best known for, aside from Battle Royale. (Far better than BR though, it must be said).

City of God

Jackie Brown

Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror:

LotR

Alien/Aliens - Career highs for Scott and Cameron.

2001

A Clockwork Orange

The Wrath of Khan - One of those movies I can watch anywhere, any time. War in fucking space, bitches.

Star Wars/Empire Strikes Back - No seriously, war in space is maybe the greatest thing. Ever.

Videodrome - Mutating/Telekinetic/Sexual/Vicious clusterfuck from David Cronenberg. One of his best.

Suspiria - Dario Argento's best movie, and one of the best Italian horror movies. Excellent camera work, LOUD as hell score by some dudes called Goblin, and some very creative kills.

Night of the Living Dead/Dawn of the Dead/Day of the Dead

The Fly - Goldblum! Cronenberg!

Action/Epics:

LotR - These count twice.

Seven Samurai/Throne of Blood/Kagemusha/Ran/Yojimbo - The cream of Kurosawa's crop of period films. You need to see each and every one of these. I could go on for pages.

Hard Boiled/The Killer - The biggest, most two-fisted, most utterly coked-out of John Woo's Hong Kong work.

Once Upon a Time in the West/The Good, the Bad and the Ugly



Oh hell, I'm going to come back and finish this later.
