Post your top 3 personal favorite movies. And don't be a pleb, explain why
1. Bridge to Terabithia
I loved the way it stayed so true to the book. They also portrayed the sudden death in such a way that the audience feels the same shock from the passing of the wonderful little girl as the boy did. Truly impactful and masterful. Without a doubt my favorite.
2. Leon/The Professional
It's probably just my preference but Jean Reno is the embodiment of all things perfect man so it makes perfect sense one of his movies is so high up for me. I loved the depiction and themes of violence with raising a wonderful little girl at the same time and all the good times and danger that come with it.
This is probably just childhood nostalgia but for me, kids with magic, Harry Potter never did it. It would always be Maltilda, that wonderful little girl changing peoples lives with her magic. It holds a special place in my heart and rounds out my top 3 most favorite movies.
What are yours?
1. 2001 A Space Odyssey
It's a beautiful film that some call boring, but I call serene. The long shots of ships docking, or astronauts on space walks, juxtaposed with the classical music makes the actions on screen look like a delicate ballet.
2. The Matrix
A metaphysical journey to the root of what freedom means. The Animatrix gets an honorable mention here for having better stories overall, but is less connected than the original.
3. Requiem for a Dream
A tragic tale of 4 people's attempt at moving up in life, who are too tempted by immediate gratification. Their subsequent descent is terrifying because it represents what could happen to any of us if we don't utilize self control and discipline.
>Bridge to Terabithia
They advertised it as Lord of the rings for kids and then sprung that dead girl on you
I was thirteen and on my first date and my emotions weren't ready for that kind of shit
That was the point. The way they handled the movie and everything overall had you just as stunned as Jess upon hearing she died. It didn't even show a scene of her death which was perfect because it has that lack of closure. Everyone watching during that scene felt the same way Jess did, "no it can't be, no". It's depicted the way it was in real life, although the true story was even more bizzare because it was a lightning bolt.
1. The Shawshank Redemption
I was just so intrigued the whole time, and the messages it sends are amazing
2. Pulp Fiction
A classic, just a great movie overall, I loved it
3. se7en/Fight Club
Both of these Brad Pitt movies are amazing, fucking niceeee
Oh you're getting hurt alright
Bring your ass over here
>1. The Wolf Of Wallstreet
How can you not love this movie? The books are fucking excellent too
>2.Oz The Great And Powerful
Absolutely beautiful, and with an interesting backstory, what with how the carnival man had to use his tricks to make people think he had real magic. Plus the china doll was a qt.
>3. The Iron Giant
A wonderfully ambitious movie that still holds up to this day. I bought the special edition with all the extra scenes a couple weeks ago. Best 5 bucks I ever spent.
1) Spielen wir Liebe (1977)
Love this film. Reminds me of my first love experience back in the early 00's
2) Bastard out of Carolina (1996)
Jena Malone acting was astonishing, and full of emotions. Glen made a lovable and relatable character.
3) Pretty Baby (1978)
A fine work of a kino. Few motion pictures have capture the perfection of the human body such as this one.
I) คุณเป็นคนที่ยิ่งใหญ่ (2012)
This cinéma presents the viewer with important questions that humanity may not answer. A must see for every motion picture enthusiast.
II) ..-. --- .-. -.-- --- ..- (2012)
If the first answer is a question to humanity, this kino is certainly the answer, Will stick into the mind and heart of the viewer.
III) Пpивeт Peддйт (2015)
This film is about the biggest threat to intellectualism that humanity currently faces, it attack it by calling it by what it is.
>then sprung that dead girl on you
I could have swore bridge to terabithia was 5th grade required reading in the states.
I don't even get why they made a movie out of that god awful book.
- After Hours
I'm kind of a beta like Paul Hackett and I want to work in an office just like he does. I like the night time and the movie has the amount of dark humour pleases me.
- White Hunter, Black Heart
The dialogues are clever and the protagonists are distinct men. Hunt is a manly thing and the irony on clint eastwood movies is funny.
- Angels with Dirty Faces
James Cagney is a spectacular actor and this period of hollywood films is something unbeliavable.
1.) THE DARK KNIGHT (2008)
> Utterly perfect film, only 2 things that can vaguely be called flaws are Maggie not being particularly attractive and Two Face being taken out here is more of a missed opportunity then a flaw.
2.) MAN OF STEEL (2013)
> Fill post a image stating my opinion in a follow up response.
3.) EVANGELION 2.0 - YOU CAN NOT ADVANCE (2009)
> One of the best endings to any film I have ever seen.
> Gave us some of the most light and fun moments of the franchise without going out of character or feeling out of place.
4.) THE END OF EVANGELION (1997)
> Absolutely a superior film and piece of art than 2.0, I just find 2.0 more enjoyable and re watchable.
> Utterly astonishing character study playing out within one of the greatest apocalypses in cinema history.
5.) JOHN CARPENTER'S THE THING (1982)
> The single greatest horror movie ever made.
> Perfectly acted, Perfectly toned, Perfectly directed, 90% perfect special effects.
6.) EVANGELION 3.0 - YOU CAN NOT REDO (2012)
> This probably could be farther down on my list.
> It really truly immerses you in the leads confusion, guilt, horror, glimmer of hope and despair.
7.) ALIEN (1979)
8.) JAWS (1975)
9.) GODZILLA VS BIOLLANTE (1989)
> Absolutely the best Godzilla film.
> Best most in depth villain origin.
> Great almost perfect Godzilla suit (the next film would make a few improvements to make the perfect one)
> Pretty much all the effects, props and locations feel and look fantastic, Osaka is one of the best city sets of the franchise.
> Military stuff is all well done, Love the political spy elements and it warns against bio engineering without being preachy.
10.) CAPTAIN AMERICA - THE WINTER SOLDIER (2014)
>2.) MAN OF STEEL (2013)
>> will post a image stating my opinion in a follow up response.
Forgot one when I made the image...
STAR TREK 6 - THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY (1991)
should be #9
> 2nd best villain of the franchise.
> Phenomenal mystery and political elements.
> Battle with the cloaked BOP is one of the best battles of the franchise.
I actually was required to read it at one point (coincidentally in 5th/6th grade), but didn't and bullshitted my way through the presentation I was supposed to do, like a true goddamn American.
One flew over the cuckoos nest
Probably cause it's one of my favorite books
For performances by Walken and the wedding scene
Shining/12 angry men
Both movies I can watch any time of any day and enjoy fully
what an awful, pedophile and nostalgic top 3 bro.
I always found mathilda very unpleasant to watch. Like her shitty life literally disgusted me.
Leon is okay. BtT was cute for the 16ish year old me, but i guess 10 years later it'd be garbage
In no particular order i guess, since apples and oranges
Enter the void
>the first time i watched it (high, not too much tho) i really freaked out with the death scene, It was quite a trip, an experience, more than a movie. The fact that it goes beyond the "screen as a window to some universe where shit plays out" makes it unique
>along the same lines, i like how gilliam exaggerates certain things of society in a way that is both goofy and terrific, the use of extreme angles, the sets, the whole movie is a downward spiral to "fuck society!" induced madness
>Big fan of 80s action movies (verhoeven, carpenter, among others) but terminator takes the cake (if im forced to pick). Perfect action movie, nostalgia factor, arnold schwartzenegger. One of these movies you can rewatch until you know every single scene and not getting really tired of
>Synecdoche, New York
made me depressed for half a year
made me depressed for half a year
made me depressed for half a year
if a film manages to do that then it's pretty well made
