ITT: We give our first impressions of other people based off of their top five favorite movies.
You're in your mid-forties and a bit of a boring fellow. You probably don't have many friends.
2.) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
3.) American Beauty
4.) Cast Away
5.) The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
You're a kid between the ages of 15-17 and you pick your favorite movie based off of whatever you recently saw in the theater. You enjoy antagonizing people and you're probably going to be virgin for several years until you figure shit out.
I should probably edit my list though now that I'm looking back on it.
My top 5 for 2014 (so far) are:
1. The Grand Budapest Hotel
2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
3. The Lego Movie
4. How To Train Your Dragon 2
5. 22 Jumpstreet
In no order:
O Brother, Where Art Thou
You're someone I would've been friends with in highschool that had very a "alternative" taste in movies, but a very generic version of alternative.
You change your favorite movies of all time every year.
Pretty solid. Cool guy
You browse /tv/ a lot
You're white, male, aged 17-25. You probably think you're smarter than everyone else, though odds are you still haven't gotten a college degree because that's something that's only stupid people do (according to you). If you do have a college degree, it's probably something worthless, like a random lib arts degree and now you're working as a barista or something. I also want to say you own several shirts from Hot Topic referencing your favorite movies, TV shows, or Internet memes. You also awkwardly flirt with women on Facebook, to no avail. Either you don't own a car or you do, but your parents bought it for you.
No real order
Lawrence of Arabia
My Dinner with Andre
The Seventh Seal
I have no friends, never kissed a girl.
>You change your favorite movies of all time every year.
Yeah, it's a bad habit.
Which is why I need to edit my list, probably remove 21 Jumpstreet and Kick-Ass.
Scott Pilgrim will probably stay.
Age guess is correct.
I think I'm useless and dumber than everyone else, it's everyone else that thinks I'm smart.
>You also awkwardly flirt with women on Facebook, to no avail.
I don't know how to flirt and I don't talk to women.
The only real strong impression I get for some reason is that you are fat.

A New Hope
Come and See
Under the Skin
The King of Comedy
some other bullshit
not too shabby
I don't know if you are joking or not. No IV makes me sad
Not bad, I think you could do better but you seem like someone on the right track
Anything Kevin Spacey makes you a friend of mine
I don't want to live anymore
You are Britbong as fuck. Also no Sexy Beast makes me sad
At least you're honest
I like you
You intentionally chose movies that would give you an appearance of being patrician by virtue of their unlikeliness to be chosen for such a list, but aren't actually patrician by any standard.
B-but anon those are my favorites.
Blazing Saddles and Ghostbusters because me and my dad watched them all the time when I was little and we quote them
Incredibles because it's always been my favorite animated movie because of the mature themes and amazing soundtrack
O Brother, Where Art Thou? is my newest favorite. Friend recently showed it to me and I fell in love, especially because I love the Odyssey.
And Rear Window because my girlfriend loves Jimmy Stewart and showed it to me and I really enjoyed it
Children of Men
The Holy Mountain
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
If cartoons count, Fantasia.
If documentaries, Waco: The Rules of Engagement
3. Star Wars first trilogy
4. True Romance
5. The Mummy/ It Takes Two
these are not in any order and arent my only ones just the few that i can think of right now I dont watch a lot of movies
also can someone please recommend me some mafia movies i'm trying to get comfy with a tub of ice cream tonite
(in no order)
The Bicycle Thieves
The Thief and the Cobbler (workprint)
The Royal Tenenbaums
Hot Tub Time Machine
The guy in the graphic tee at uni who works for the A/V department.
The bespectacled self-conscious bloke who's actually pretty fun to talk to when he isn't belittling himself constantly.
You're definitely the coolest and best looking guy in the thread. Probably have tons of friends. I'm sure you're also quite the lady's man. I assume you are financially responsible and have an impressive portfolio. Drives a $75k+ vehicle.
Not my top 5 favourite movies, but too lazy to really think which are my 5 favourite movies ever.
Still, here are 5 movies that I very much loved. Rate me, /tv/:
2- Spirited Away
3- District 9
4- The Devil's Rejects
5- Almost Famous
>Lawrence of Arabia
>Withnail and I
>You are Britbong as fuck
Somehow I actually got chills reading that. Well done.
Tries too hard to seem cultured, but you're probably a nice guy regardless.
Completely honest about yourself and probably chill as hell.
I have a feeling you frequently use finger guns and have at one point in your life said, "daddy-o" even if it was ironic
>The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
You were probably really cool as a kid and once you grew up you realized that life is shit so you hold on to these movies because it's the only thing that makes the world a better place, you get lost in these adventures and for a moment even if brief you feel like a kid again
This is in no order, just movies that I like
1. Clockwork Orange
2. Tae Guk Gi
3. Raid 2
4. Spirited Away
5. Longest Day (watched this like crazy as a kid, still one of my favorite movies, even if its inaccurate as hell)
well let me update my list after some consideration
Godfather Pt 3
Three Colors: White
(why is the weakest link in trilogies with the exception of three colors most always the final part?)
not hating on TC:W and BM, just thought they were the weakest parts of their respective trilogies
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
The Secret of NIMH
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Lawrence of Arabia
I was 8 in 2003, man. I watched The Cat in the Hat literally more than 50 times, I remembered every line from the movie.
I haven't watched again though, I probably ain't going to like it but I can't think of a fifth movie.
Some pretty Dad-core stuff in there, you probably have strong opinions on the Beatles (either way) but are an alright bloke to go to a bbq with but not a night out
Naissance des Pieuvres
La Vie D'Adele
The Lego Movie
You don't frequent theatres, you have a diverse music taste which you describe as 'everything but....(rap/country/pop/whatever)
You have a dark sense of humour, probably listen to people like Nick Cave or Radiohead, smoke weed
>Le grand bleu (the big blue)
thanks for the translation
Well, I'm seeing a couple comedies, and Redline is fairly light-hearted. But the darker stuff isn't just pleb bullshit. I'd say you're smart, or at least think you are, but maybe depressed, which would be the reasoning behind the comedies. You eat popcorn with a spoon.
Doesn't matter how you see it, at least it's who I really am.
Male, more mainstream than a hispter even though I enjoy animation more than reality films, never draw and hate everything that's not canon.
Jesus Christ Superstar
Night of the Hunter
1) Army of Darkness
2) For a Few Dollars More
3) The Master
4) Only God Forgives
5) Escape from LA
I do doodle a lot I don't post it online though. I throw it in the trash once I fill the page.
Because I can't take stuff that isn't written by the actual artist seriously.
Imagine someone adding stuff to a Van Gogh painting, would you accept that?
>animation is so much better than reality, I feel it conveys the story much better because of the freedom it offers.
Have an eccentric personality and like movies with very distinct visual styles
Seem like a fun guy who isn't afraid of what he enjoys, even if it's the films of Wes Anderson
You sound like a weeaboo
I would watch movies with all of these fine gentlemen.
No order, and fully aware some of these are actually kind of shitty.
1. Save the Green Planet
2. Evil Dead 2
3. Harold and Maude
4. Miami Connection
5. Electric Dragon 80.0000v
I've watched plenty of animated films. In fact, pre-Frozen I probably would've considered Fantasia to be my favorite animated film. The thing is, Frozen really touched me in a way no film has before. The relationship between Anna and Elsa was something, although done before, that managed to really get to me. I don't understand why exactly I like it so much considering my other favorites, but I do. Also Anna is a 10/10 waifu
minus the control room scene
dat soundtrack, dose mechs
come at me, fuckers
never saw High Fidelity and Blues Brothers is a little Dadcore, but I'd say you're a pretty chill guy
you're either kind of the man, or just a faggot
you sound cool, you don't pander to all the faggots on /tv/ who say you can't like certain movies. TDK is prolly in my top 10 favorites. Fight Club is good too no matter what the anti-tippers say.
you initially sound pretentious, but might be a bro in disguise
you seem like a bretty cool guy, nothing special though
I like your taste, unique, but not in a tippy way
I thought ROTK was the worst one, but whatever. Not bad otherwise, Gran Torino was great.
Godzilla vs Destroyah is best Godzilla
love the first 3, indifferent to the other two, we could chill probably
All good, but Princess Bride? The fuck?
total fucking faggot
Princess Bride again?
>Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat (2003 with Mike Myers)
not bad, except
the Big LebowskiI'd say you were the fucking man
I can't tell if this is bait or not..
no, I'm sorry, Frozen sucks
Tarzan's love story is ten-thousand times better
You don't think gays have waifus?
Pic related, another gay waifu.
Millennium Actress or Paprika (it switches depending on the day)
Fight Club or Seven (it switches...)
Goodfellas or Casino (it switches...)
Night of the Living Dead
Empire Strikes Back
If Documentaries Count:
Jiro Dreams of Sushi
I'm not too good with commitment so sorry about turning a list of 5 into a list of 13.
Nothing really, I just didn't find it that funny. Too much stoner humor, but I realize that's part of its charm.
Pic related is prolly my favorite comedy.
But we're not measuring our favorites on quality, but on influence on ourselves as people. That's why the guy who likes Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat (2003 with Mike Myers) is such a bro. Also Frozen is way better than Tarzan.
Eh, I don't see it as stoner humor. There aren't any pot jokes or anything. It's more about the character interactions than anything (that's what I find funny anyway).
De Niro was GOAT in Midnight Run. Everyone loves him for his mob films but he's so much more than that.
Yeah, and post-millennium HEHE SO CUTE N RANDUM XDD humor. Fucking horrible. Actually, Tangled was worse. At least there was some development of characters in Frozen, Tangled just threw a bunch of archtypes at you and expected you to know the relationships between some of the characters based on the trailers. Like the prince and the weird horse.
worst guy in thread, not so much as your movie choice, your entire post. Arrogant asshole who thinks other people care about his opinions, probably wont shut up and argues with people for fun
I can dig it. I'd chill out with you, you seem pretty bro-tier.
>better than Tarzan
fucking kek are you serious. Tarzan isn't even my all-time favorite, but it's not hard to be better than Frozen.
Tarzan is prolly in my top 10 favorite Disney flicks, though
Pic related being goat in my humble opinion
The Thing (80s version)
Back to the Future
Normalfag. 2001 just makes you more of a normalfag. It's name dropping.
5/5 would get drunk and/or high and watch Cameron films with.
Titanic's ending makes me cry when I drink though.
>Arrogant asshole who thinks other people care about his opinions
b-but isn't that the point of the thread?
I do like a good shit fight as long as both sides are bringing decent points to the table.
1. The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
2. Master and Commander
3. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
4. American Gangster
5. The Wind That Shakes the Barley
movies like frozen are just evidence that the disney renaissance is long gone
i mean the fact that "let it go" is in the same category as any of the songs on the lion king soundtrack is beyond me
~read in le 1928 soviet Russian accent xD~
>but vladimir, you couldn't possibly have battleship potemkin in your top 5 favorite moving pictures, it was released only last year!!!
> 2/10 would not be comrades with
> I bet you enjoy the works of Robert Wiene
>let it go
it's because it sounds like typical radio pop and people like this listen to it 24/7
but yeah, it sickens me
such goat soundtracks
am I missing any?
I can't see how Jungle Book could be someone's favorite Disney film. I mean it was good, but it wasn't fantastic. I can respect your opinion and all, but Jungle Book is no way better than Beauty and the Beast, Fantasia, The Lion King, etc.
I'll give you Beauty and the Beast and Lion King. I guess Jungle Book is just MUH TASTES but it still btfo Frozen and shit.
Toy Story 3 sucked, at least the ending did. Just sayian.
Lawrence of Arabia
Cross of Iron
End of Evangelion
I didn't mention Toy Story 3? But I really liked Toy Story 3. Although I acknowledge that Toy Story 2 is the best in the trilogy, the release of Toy Story 3 coincided with my nostalgia and thus made it my favorite in the trilogy. Again there are a lot of flaws in it, but the mere fact that it was one of those films you literally grew up with made it feel more satisfying. Also it's ending was bretty good. It's like the circle of life man.
You could make the point that Jungle Book is objectively better than Frozen (although film is a subjective medium), but the mere influence of Frozen and the fact that it is such a cultural phenomenon says something about it. It's the 5th highest grossing film of all time and the 1st highest animated film of all time. Now how much a film earns doesn't say anything about its quality, but the fact that it is such a phenomenon means it must have some sort of value.
Yeah, I just mentioned Toy Story 3 in a like, "while we're at it" sense. I just didn't like how Andy gave away the fucking toys. Instead of giving them to some girl, who in 3 years time or so will get an iPhone and a thong and throw the toys away. Here's my ideal ending.
>Andy looks at the remaining toys
>deciding whether to give them away or not
>puts them in a box, tapes it up
>screen goes black, toys holding hands like they did when they were falling into the fire
>"5 years later"
>Andy gives his little boy his toys
>the toys rejoice
>the cycle continues
And Frozen is a phenomenon because it panders to so many typically tasteless groups like little girls and transgenders pansexuals and things of the like. Plus, it has "catchy" pop music, so.
I'm just going to get out of the way that Fantasia has the best soundtrack for any Disney film (followed by the Lion King). But Frozen has a better soundtrack than two of the four (Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast had superb soundtracks. The Little Mermaid and Mulan's soundtracks were good, but not great).
Full Metal Jacket
greetings from /sp/. Friday Night Lights is probably a close sixth.
That's a 10/10 ending. But the thing is, basically everyone I talk about Frozen too who is normal says it's this generation's Lion King. You could get into the argument that being normal means being tasteless, but then we get into this whole fedora-tipping patrician-only movie club thing.
Yeah, I know what you mean. It basically comes down to muh opinions.
Unless we wanna break down the dialogue and cinematography and subtext and all this other shit and actually study these movies to see which is the best/worst scientifically. Hopefully there's no one out there that autistic.
Someone on /tv/ is probably making a commentary on Jungle Book and Frozen in the style of Roger Ebert's commentary of Citizen Kane.
I mean there have been a lot of analysis on both films already created. That being said, they are all basically rudimentary and don't actual look at the important things like cinematography, sound design and dialogue and only focus on narrative.
I'm curious if anyone has actually done a proper commentary on any animated film. The thing about animation is that for the good films, ever detail is meticulously drawn. Does anybody know of any commentaries on say Spirited Away that actually go in depth (as opposed to muh allegory for prostitution)?
