View Full Version : Favorite movies? (Another Favorite ______ thread)

Let's talk about movies or whatever. We've certainly watched enough of them.

Here's some of my favorites, along with short explanations:

Casino Royale- This was my favorite James Bond film. Daniel Craig was great as Bond, the action scenes were very good, and the movie's plot, while simple, worked. Still haven't seen Quantum of Solace, but I heard it wasn't nearly as good.

Nightmare On Elm Street- Yep. That's what makes the dramatic reading all the more painful, because this is my favorite entry in my favorite slasher franchise. Krueger was a cool villain, the girl who played Nancy was suspiciously good for an actress in a slasher movie, and the concept was very original for the time. I don't care how bad everyone says the remake is, I'm still going to go see it. I want to see if Jackie Earle Haley's any good as Freddy.

Heat- God, the bank robbery scene was so awesome. And it had one of the best running gunfights in any movie ever. It also had Lynch in the form of Waingro, who for some reason I didn't like nearly as much as Lynch. He annoyed the hell out of me, actually. Maybe it was the whole hooker-killing thing.

The Dark Knight- Two words: the Joker. That is all.

Anything from Pixar- Most notably Up and The Incredibles.

Sweeney Todd- My favorite musical (figures >__>)

28 Days Later- It had running zombies (Infected, whatever) and Cillian Murphy. I remember hearing somewhere that this started the running zombie thing. I approve. While there is something to be said for a slow-moving, implacable wall of zombies, you can outrun them by going slightly faster than your walking pace. With running zombies, you're all running and all OH **** OH **** OH **** and then you're dead.

Pulp Fiction, the Kill Bill movies- Tarantino at his best.

From Dusk Till Dawn- At least until the halfway twist with OH **** VAMPIRE STRIPPERS bit. The liquor store scene was rather good, and reminded me of Kane and Lynch (always a plus). And (here's where I alienate you all) George Clooney looked great in that movie. With the tattoo and everything...damn. He looked even better standing next to Tarantino, who is cool but kind of looks like a child molester.

Hot Fuzz

The Happening - Everyone committing suicide sounded pretty funny so i watched it. I lol'd hard. Anyone seen it? At the beginning where you see the builder's jumping of the building and you just keep seeing them hitting the floor was comical.

This also happend with Batman and Sherlock Holmes and probably others with all the remakes beign done; most of the audience know only the film/television version of these stories, and when a movie gets back to the actual characters most don't recognize them anymore.

My favourite movies are:

The Proposition: This is just plain good. Everything from the acting to the cinematography to the music. It's perfect. It might be a bit bleak or brutal for some, but it's worth it. Easily my number one.

In Bruges: This is an amazingly funny movie, but at the same time a very dramatic one.

Heat and Collateral: Do I really need to say anything here?

The Taking of Pelham 123: The original, not the remake, is a classic. Nobody plays a cold hearted criminal like Robert Shaw.

The Italian Job: This is just such a lovable movie. Everything about it is endearing.

No Country for Old Men: This has some of the most tense scenes and some of the best performances ever. It's a classic.

Now, about James Bond, Roger Moore was the best. He's the only one that realized how ridiculous the series really is and played it the way it fit best. Daniel Craig has all the charm of a sack of bricks.

EDIT: I forgot to mention Memento. This movie is awesome. Way better than Nolan's recent work.

Goldfinger- The best Bond movie with the best Bond, period.

Quemada- Marlon Brando as an English Filibuster and Portugese people speaking Spainish

Assassination of Richard Nixon- Sean Penn in this is haunting, hes a loser salesman who hijacks a plane

A amazingly sad documentry. I also love the stylized graphics.

- Role Models
The best comedy I have seen. Yes.... better then "The Hangover". I didn't even like the hangover very much

Edit, also all this:

28 Days Later- It had running zombies (Infected, whatever) and Cillian Murphy. I remember hearing somewhere that this started the running zombie thing. I approve.

It's a pretty decent movie, in my opinion. Ray Winstone basically holds the whole movie together while Guy Pearce tries his hardest to deliver lines without sounding like he just came back from a week long vacation on I-don't-give-a-****-Island... but pretty much falls short.

His crazy brother, played by Danny Huston does a good job being a disconnected psycho the entire movie... but the whole dynamic wasn't very compelling. Compared to such movies as "Unforgiven" the storyline just doesn't hold up. Overall though it's very watchable, and the style is definitely there.

I am the messenger and soul of the Old Ones, and the mad daemon-sultan Azathoth who sits with his rings made of human skulls and whose name none dare speak aloud. I have a thousand faces, and once took the form of man. Madness and wild vengeance are my only gifts to the presumptuous, as I send them down into the great void.

I thought I posted in this thread. Oh well am I too late? Judging by the posts it's no longer about movies.

Damn.

Anyway, my personal favorites (in no specific order);

Oldies (anything to 1985)

Shichinin no samurai (Dir. Akira Kurosawa) - When it comes to Kurosawa's films I can't really pick a favorite one. I adore this one just as much as Rashômon, or Ikiru. Of course I haven't seen everything by him but it's easy to say he's my favorite director.

Psycho (Dir. Alfred Hitchcock, 1960) - Beautiful thriller from the master of horror. In my opinion it's a classic while some might say it's over-rated. It's not Hitchcock's best but it's defiantly one of my favorite films. Many suspenseful and surprising moments.

Rosemary's Baby (Dir. Roman Polanski, 1968) - Is it a drama, horror, or mystery? I've seen this beautiful film many times and I'm still not sure. It's a very simple story yet it's so engaging. Personally this is better than The Exorcist.

A Clockwork Orange (Dir. Stanley Kubrick, 1971) - A true masterpiece among many others by Kubrick himself.

One Flew Over Cuckoo's Nest (Dir. Milos Forman, 1975) - I think this is one of my favorite films where the acting plays the major part of the reason why I like it so much. It's like how Ledger made The Dark Knight to some...I feel like the whole cast did amazing in this film.

Carrie (Dir. Brian De Palma, 1976) - This is a very good horror in my opinion. It's almost on the same page as Kubrick's Shinning and it makes its way to my list of favorite films.


Taxi Driver (Dir. Martin Scorsese, 1976) - Some believe that Ragging Bull or The Departed are Scorsese's masterpiece, however to me it's Taxi Driver. This was the film that got me into film-making and is one of my all time favorites. Travis Bickle is a great character and Robert DeNiro nailed it.

Alien (Dir. Ridley Scott, 1979) - What a great psychological horror! I heard it's basically Jaws in space but to be honest, this is better than Jaws. This film has the best trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojhGdRSkiUw) too.

The Thing (Dir. John Carpenter, 1982) - Amazing sci-fi horror it is opposite of Alien with its gore and special effects. I think it's Carpenter's best film.

Idi i smotri (Dir. Elem Klimov, 1985) - It's a war drama at its best. It doesn't f.u.c.k around but shows the effects of war on young human mind. Beautifully terrifying. It's a real world horror movie.

Modern; (anything post 1986)

Jacob's Ladder (Dir. Adrian Lyne, 1990) - It counts as a thriller by today standards but to me it's a very well crafted horror film. It is creepy, confusing, and disturbing.

Se7en (Dir. David Fincher, 1995) - To me this is better then Fight Club. The storyline is fantastic, the acting is great, and the plot-twist is very well executed. I think it's a perfect example of suspenseful detective drama.

The Big Lebowski (Dir. Coen Bros, 1998) - My favorite Coen Brothers film.It's a great comedy that plays off the idea of old detective films such as The Big Combo or The Big Heat. This film is laugh-out-loud hilarious.

American Beauty (Dir. Sam Mendes, 1999) - I often get picked on for liking this movie so much. It's over-rated some say but to me it's a great, great film with fantastic storyline with basic plot. I view this film as a social commentary of human behavior as well as pure entertainment.

Being John Malkovich (Dir. Spike Jonze, 1999) It's a fantastic mix of drama and fantasy with little sprinkle of dark humor. Charlie Kaufman is genius for writing this.

Memento (Dir. Chris Nolan, 2000) - This is Chris Nolan's masterpiece. The Dark Knight is a good film but this is where his talent really shows. Beautiful storytelling.

Requiem for a Dream (Dir. Darren Aronofsky, 2000) - It's a perfect drama in my opinion. It's strong, twisted, and shows that not everything has happy ending. Aronofsky is one of my favorite directors.

Oldboy (Dir. Chan-wook Park, 2003) - Great story-telling. It's the perfect revenge flick. I love the twist, just when you thought you had it figured out...it turns everything around.

Hard Candy (Dir. David Slade, 2005) - It's my favorite independent film. Two characters, one location, and whole lot of thrills.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (Dri. Shane Black, 2005) - Very fun, entertaining, and overall good film. Love the dark humor undertones of it.

Guilty Pleasure; (films that are "okay" at best but still happen to be my favorites)

The Warriors - Not very good film even for the time but I really enjoyed the videogame that was based off it. It's pretty entertaining, I think.
SLC Punk - This film is just so fun to watch.
The Tracey Fragments - Very awesome editing style but I feel like the whole film overall is too hip for its own good.
Henry Poole is Here - Nothing special but I can't help but like it.
Uprowadzenie Agaty - Polish take on Romeo+Juliet story. Not very good but I loved it as a kid...it has that nostalgic feeling.

So that's my 25 favorite films. Wait was that? ...Where is Citizen Kane you ask? Or perhaps the Indian Jones movies? ...or Star Wars? Wait...that list sucks, you say?

I appreciate most films, it is just those above are my personal favorite.

The best of Scorsese , also in collaboration with Robert De Niro ? 'The King of Comedy' , hands down ...


The Thing (Dir. John Carpenter, 1982) - Amazing sci-fi horror it is opposite of Alien with its gore and special effects. I think it's Carpenter's best film.

Meh , the last boss fight was disapointing , they barely threw a few punches ...

Agreed about it being better than Fight Club , personnaly though , i found the last Plot Twist to incredibly predictable , which is a bit disapointing because for the entire film we could barely imagine what was going on next , but this ? predictable since the middle of the film , and not to mention This serves as the climax for an otherwise quite intelligent film ... anywya ...


The Big Lebowski (Dir. Coen Bros, 1998) - My favorite Coen Brothers film.It's a great comedy that plays off the idea of old detective films such as The Big Combo or The Big Heat. This film is laugh-out-loud hilarious.

Memento (Dir. Chris Nolan, 2000) - This is Chris Nolan's masterpiece.

Agreed ...
*gives firework to make a point* ...


Requiem for a Dream (Dir. Darren Aronofsky, 2000) - It's a perfect drama in my opinion. It's strong, twisted, and shows that not everything has happy ending. Aronofsky is one of my favorite directors.

Well ...
In order to show that not everything Has to have a happy ending doesn't mean it has to shove us that last fifteen minutes into our face to make a point ...

But at least Aronofsky did improved a lot with The Foutain , and to some extent , The Wrestler ...
I just don't understand how could Requiem had got such a huge cult following ...


Oldboy (Dir. Chan-wook Park, 2003) - Great story-telling. It's the perfect revenge flick. I love the twist, just when you thought you had it figured out...it turns everything around.

I think i really need to watch this film again , everyone keeps talking about it , when i saw it it was just ... well alright , i'll see it again ...


So that's my 25 favorite films. Wait was that? ...Where is Citizen Kane you ask? Or perhaps the Indian Jones movies? ...or Star Wars? Wait...that list sucks, you say?

Wut ? never heard of them rambojambo you mentionned ...
I much prefer Citizen Lynch , now that is a masterpiece of a study of the inner man's mind ...

9qt_002jXjs

Don't get my started on how overhyped Paranormal Activity was. My friend actually dragged me to that cinematic atrocity, insisting that it would be the scariest thing I had ever seen. I must be desensitized because I didn't find this to be scary or even uncomfortable. You've got your typical dumb protangonists making one bad decision after another (OMG LETS STAY IN THE HOUSE AND CONFRONT THIS DEMON THANG LOL) which results in even more far-fetchery.

My friend loved it though, said he couldn't sleep for days after seeing it. I guess some people are just weird like that. He kinda believes in that spiritual **** though, so that probably played a part in it.

P.S. Se7en is probably one of my favorite movies of all time.

This, i am curious about it. I still don't understand how they can make a sequel to the first one....

Is Paranormal activity still gonna take place in the house? It's going to be boring...what can they do? Make Swat surround the house or send 3 pathetic teens to **** themselves over and over again, compeltely oblivious that they can just run out the door? But instead they just gonna record themselves crying and begging for mercy.

I am going to laugh when they all die.

This. The ending for the first film was satisfying enough.

I think Drag me to Hell has scared me most, it is just chock full of scares, every 5 mins something is going to make you jump, some scares are predictable.

I guessed correctly that the old women will appear in the car in the back seat, still scary though.

I always loved The Scream Trilogy and 28 days and weeks later. I wonder when 28 months comes out.

18th Jul 2010, 19:57
Well it's hard to say. I would say one of the most violent, grotesque movies I've seen would have to be "Murder-Set-Pieces" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0422779/

I remember reading that they used somewhere on the order of 55 gallons of fake blood throughout the film. You literally have to turn your brain off while you're watching this, because it's just so offensive in almost every tangible way. Violence against women, violence against kids, rape, murder, torture, nazis (that's right, I said nazis)

Lion's Gate actually picked up the film, but hacked out a good chunk of it to meet the R rating requirement. Whichever cut you see, it's over the top in almost every way. I'm not saying it's necessarily the goriest movie I've ever seen, but it's definitely in my Top 5.

Taking it in back on topic!


Fair enough. Still, you must've seen The Shining or some other horror classic? The Omen, perhaps?

Yup, The Shining was good, and it actually makes a case of what an horror movie can be. Now that I'm thinking about it I've seen The Exorcist(at school, can you believe that?), but it was so over the top by the end, the beginning in the desert was intresting.

As for modern things(I'm helping myself with imdb horror list, so if something isn't exactly on topic don't blame me!)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre(the remake, sorry), I was soon turned off, didn't finish.
The Wolfman (2010), started well, but never went far from the track, lacked courage.
The Descent, well this was delusion, expected good things from the reviews, exept it was boring, full of random scares and unnecessary violence.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, well what's this doing here? as a musical it wasn't that great, just few songs were intresting, the story was wasted potential.
Saw, ouch, so many painfull scenes, story too much complicated for no good reason, the idea of room with the two guys was good, exept that a good deal of the movie is based on the flashbacks and that destroy all the atmosphere.
Planet Terror, what the hell? imdb is **** up, this was really fun and over the top.
The Blair Witch Project , over hyped, the idea was nice, the execution not so much.
They Live, this is genius, but...not a horror?
Army of Darkness, stop taunting me with this movies imdb!
Final Destination, well I just had to watch one of this...I guess I'll just skip everything that has the word final in it, they just don't suit me.
Cube, all of them, a friend of mine convinced me to watch these, a case of know when to quit.
Lost Highway, really? well it was very good, Lynch can make you daydream like no other.
Frailty, uhm...this was intresting, but I can't remeber too much, the ending was dissapointing.
Eraserhead, I'm not going to listen to you anymore imdb!


Well, that's it (no it isn't, I've seen the ring, the eye and maybe something else, but nothing intresting), as you can see I've never dwelled too much into scary stuff, and I cringed at the Saw and Texas etcetc painfull scenes.
Then I read some of the stuff you guys suggested, like the human caterpillar or wathever and I ask myself why would anybody want to watch something like that; it's like jakass (the television show), it's all so meaningless, doing something disgusting just to prove that you did it, maybe sometimes I don't need to see what happens.

@Grievous, thanks for the dinner, and for the drink...maybe something unalchoolic? (now I sound like a carebear).



ps: forgot to mention The Passion of the Christ, talking about unnecessary violence and gore.

So you ask why would anyone watch something like that?
Have you ever been on a roller-coaster?

Eraserhead in modern? What have you been smoking? I want some of that s.h.i.t

But judging by what you wrote you like psychological horror, right? I think you might like Jacob's Ladder.

P.S I loved Eraserhead (and most other David Lynch films especially Blue Velvet).

P.S.S The Human Centipede (not Human Caterpillar lol) is actually pretty good. The story is very simple and it's pretty much another take on "evil scientists" movies from the old days. That's all it really is...with a twist of course.

P.S.S.S The Passion of the Christ? Well according to the bible it wasn't exactly candy land out there. I believe it was realisticly brutal, but who am I to judge? Simply you just can't handle movies like that, and that's okay. Make sure you never watch Aftermath

Haven't seen that one. And now for something completely different: I saw 'Fortress (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106950/)' again yesterday. Not a great flick but a guilty pleasure of mine because it has an 80's feel to it.

I've seen both. I'm sure they were shocking back in the day, but nowadays the effect is kind of lost.

Don't have the heart to watch it, but I've read about it, and by all means it has more deph than you guys are giving it credit for (funny fact, Pasolini actually lived near my city in his early years); Salò, like Antichrist by Von Trier, is one of those films that, even if I liked to, I'll never get to see: I think I would pass out.

Anyway, I forgot to mention Tetsuo the iron man (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096251/), talking about ****ed up.

ps: I've found Crash to be rubbish, never got what the fuss was all about.

Because it's full of gratuitous drama ! and it took place in Los Angeles ! which in turn guaranteed a oscar for best picture over that other film about 'don't know don't tell' ! ...

Reservoir Dogs:

"If they hadn't done what I told 'em not to do, they'd still be alive."

"The choice between doing ten years and taking out some stupid mother*er, ain't no choice at all. But I ain't no madman."

"You shoot me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize. "

"You kill anybody? "
"A few cops. "
"No real people?"
"Just cops. "

"All these sheriffs looking at me, and they know, man. They can smell it. Sure as that *ing dog can, they can smell it on me. "

"* you, White! I didn't create the situation, I'm just dealin' with it! You're acting like a first year *ing theif - I'm acting like a professional! If they get him, they can get you. They get you, they get closer to me, and that can't happen!"

"I don't wanna kill anybody. But if I gotta get out that door, and you're standing in my way, one way or the other, you're gettin' outta my way."

Best Lines, Best Movie.

Love was in the hair , Bevacur was constantly thrown out of buildings without parachutes , Slash was being chased around by the local pedophiles , and Kent actually use to smile back then ...
