Which are your all time favourite movies, those you never get tired of watching or those movies you like.

This are the movies I like: (Not in order)

2001: a space odyssey
The thing
The godfather 1&2
Í Comme Icare
21 grams
Il Buono, il brutto, il cattivo
The great escape
Casa Blanca
The Maltese falcon
Sunset Boulevard
Metropolis (1928 version)
Others (I always feel like I have missed something, so I'm just going to put this until I come up with another good movie)

Here are mine:

* pretty much everything wit Al Pacino
* Casablanca
* um... did I mention Pacino's films yet?
* Airplane!
* Kung Pow - Enter The Fist (believe it or not)

I don't watch moves that much, and I rarely find anything I really like.

El Virus 10-31-2004 07:41 AM

Pacino did some good movies.
I recommend you to watch 2001, either you love that movie or you hate it.

My Faves (my very few ten out of tens, and some nines)

Almost Famous
Run Lola Run
Waking Life
Once Upon a Time in the West (which in my opinion is waaay better that Good, Bad, and Ugly)
All three Matrix films. I think I'm the only person in the world that loved the sequels as much as the first.

Some close calls to the list are Motorama, Eraserhead, Mullholland Drive, 25th Hour, and One-hour Photo.

Brazil is such a great movie, infact I saw it again last week,I'm not sure why I didn't include it, I love sci-fi.
By the way, never got to see "once upon a time in the west", but as far as I'm concearned, "The good the bad and the ugly" is great. I loved DeNiro on Brazil.

JofaGuht 10-31-2004 07:08 PM

Good, Bad, and Ugly is great but Once upon a Time in the West is excellent. Plus, I'm really not a big Clint Eastwood fan. I think he's kind of flat

VampireNaomi 11-01-2004 03:39 AM

What kind of movie is Brazil?

Sanspoof 11-01-2004 10:20 AM

* Sleepy Hollow
* Goodfellas

Um... I can't think of any else.

El Virus 11-01-2004 11:20 AM

Brazil is a british (I think) Sci-fi movie, it's great:
Goodfellas you said?, I loved it.

Directed by Terry Gilliam, man behind Time Bandits, Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Twelve Monkeys, etc. That dude's a god.

Brazil has absolutely nothing to do with the country of the same name, rather the song called "Brazil". It takes places in an uber-beaurocratic future where you have to pay insurance on your own executions, and can't get any work done on ducts if you don't have a 27B-6. It's worth seeing.

VampireNaomi 11-02-2004 04:04 AM

Oh, it has Robert DeNiro in it. That's a reason good enough to see it.

neon_git 11-02-2004 09:32 AM

why has nobody mentioned Blade Runner yet?

or The City of God?

I'll probably think of some more later

El Virus 11-02-2004 11:30 AM

You see I always forget things,
Blade Runner
Farenheit 9/11
The Big Fish
(Note: the fact that I have included a lot of movies, doesn't mean they are all my favourite, but I'm too uncertain about my decissions)

neon_git 11-11-2004 02:32 PM

well, because i have no life, i made a list, although i probably still left some out.

The Italian Job (the original, obviously)
The Blues Brothers (the first one, obviously)
Pulp Fiction
Reservoir Dogs
Blade Runner
The Godfather Trilogy
12 Monkeys
Being John Malkovich (i know i spelled it wrong, shut up)
Judge Dredd (i know, i know, but i'm a fanboy, what can i say?)
Brain Dead
Bad Taste
Toy Story (1 + 2)
Shaun of the Dead
The Parole Officer
The Hole
Love Actually
Pirate of the Carribean
Last Man Standing
Spinal Tap

El Virus 11-11-2004 02:44 PM

Most of them are nice picks, I share some of your likes.
By the way, I forgot to ad "Bowling for Columbine"

Shuz 11-11-2004 11:13 PM

Yes! Finally someone who agrees! Most people think the movie sucks, but I just can't get enough of it. I love Betty! :D

El Virus 11-12-2004 11:33 AM

Nevers seen that one:(

Necroman 11-12-2004 12:21 PM

Holys***, El Vius, I can't believe you got "THE THING" by John Carpenter.But I got:

-Evil Dead(trilogy)
-A nightmare on elm street
-Bride of re-animator
-They Live
-Jeepers Creepers
-Tank Girl
-Blade Runner

and that's just the beginning...

neon_git 11-13-2004 05:39 AM

hmmm ... spawn, tank girl, hellboy ... a fellow fanboy perhaps?

although it has to be said, i thought both the spawn and tank girl movies sucked. especially spawn.

i mean seriously, that's in the running for the worst film ever made.


but then i like the judge dredd movie, which is also in the running so ...

Necroman 11-13-2004 10:41 AM

Hey Neon_git, Spawn won the best effects award in 1997.And it's based on one of the most sold comicbooks.
So the only thing that sucked were the actors.:mad:

El Virus 11-13-2004 10:50 AM

The Thing is a great movie, I have watched it many times. I trying to get the poster, but it's pretty hard. The game was released two years ago.
By the way, I have seen Clue, it's a nice movie.

neon_git 11-13-2004 11:43 AM

i know and love spawn the comic and animated tv series.

the secial effects were prety good for the time however, good effects and and good souce material does not necessarally mean a good film.

pretty much everything else about the movie was rubbish.

however everything i've said can equally be applied to the judge dredd movie which i love (apart from the animated tv series bit, which i think was planned but never made).

JofaGuht 11-21-2004 10:29 AM

Dude, I forgot about Labrynth! Labrynth is definitely one of my favorite movies.
