Title: Top Films of All Time
Post by: philip918 on February 25, 2008, 01:36:52 AM
I know these lists are ridiculous and painful, but here they are, my Desert Island Top 20 Films of All-Time (in alphabetical order):

Annie Hall
Back to the Future
Chunking Express
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
La Dolce Vita
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Evil Dead 2
The Graduate
The Hole (Tsai, not the crappy British film with Keira Knightley)
M
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
The Princess Bride
Pulp Fiction
Raging Bull
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Rashomon
Say Anything
Spirited Away
Star Wars: A New Hope
Touch of Evil

There are probably over a hundred films I'd consider Top 20-worthy, but these are without a doubt my favorite films.

I'm a young guy so most of my picks are from from the last decade or so. No order.

I'm only 28...But, for me a lot of older movies have more repeat-playability than a lot of the stuff pumped out these days.

I thought coming up with the 20 movies would be tough, but it really wasn't. Ranking them was the hard part... really, really hard. When it's all said and done though, I can say I like each movie better than the one below it.

After much deliberation, here is my top 20:

#1 (1973) The Sting
#2 (1997) Princess Mononoke
#3 (2003) The Fog of War
#4 (1994) Endless Summer 2
#5 (1991) Terminator 2
#6 (1984) Amadeus
#7 (2003) Touching The Void
#8 (2001) Lord of The Rings
#9 (1995) Braveheart
#10 (1999) The Insider
#11 (1977) Starwars: A New Hope
#12 (2001) Vanilla Sky
#13 (1996) Shine
#14 (2004) Vera Drake
#15 (2000) Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
#16 (1995) Heat
#17 (2007) Into the Wild
#18 (2001) Winged Migration
#19 (1995) Casino
#20 (2001) Brotherhood of the Wolf

 :D What a mess!

I always find it odd when people put recent films in their top 10 (or in this case 20) lists. I just have seen too many good classics to put anything made in the last decade in my top 20...well except for The New World. :P

While it's important to consider the way a film ages in terms of influence and transcendence, no one is really trying to assemble a list of the greatest films ever made. These are simply our 20 favorite films, most of which we've seen multiple times. I've seen Ocean's Eleven about 50 times, compared to Tokyo Story which I've only seen once. I love both of them, but in very different ways. Are you saying that a film is automatically better because it is regarded as a classic or that there have been no good movies recently except for The New World?

Heh, I'm pretty much the opposite. I can't believe how many old movies people like. I watch em and their so... OLD! I'm usally disappionted. I usually get hung up on the acting style, or old fashioned feel... everything from the camera work to the music.

Okay, well that makes sense. I was just looking at the title and top 20 films sounds more like a serious list. If it was top 20 movies list I wouldn't have been misled.

Are you saying that a film is automatically better because it is regarded as a classic or that there have been no good movies recently except for The New World?
Definitely not on a film being better as a Classic. I just know that personally a lot of my top 20 films would be classics because I can go back and watch them and know that they are still technically proficient and thematically relevant. There's a handful of classics I hate (Which I won't get into here) so I'm not taking that position. As far as The New World lets just say I haven't seen anything that I think has been quite as good made in the past decade. Know tons of people would disagree but that never dissuades me! ;D

Post by: wilson1290 on February 28, 2008, 08:42:12 PM
Oooh this is fun OK

Brokeback Mountain...because being stuck on a deserted island isnt depressing enough
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Its A Wonderful Life
The Color Purple
Eternal Sunshine
Moulin Rouge
Me and You and Everyone We Know
Y Tu Mama Tambien
Mystic River/Gone Baby Gone (yeah its cheating so sue me...theyre both Denis Lehane adaptations)
There Will Be Blood
Sunset Boulevard
Finding Nemo
Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion
Titanic (Screw all the skeptics this movie still keeps me entertained despite coming on cable every Saturday, I think its safe to say its with stood the test of time)
Bad Education
Maria Full of Grace
Shortbus
Modern Times (If only to watch the mechanical feeding machine scene over and over)
Before Sunset
City of Men

Film I'd throw into the water even if it was the only movie on a deserted island: Tie Casablana & Citizen Kane

I also dont think its fair to say a film cant be considered a masterpiece just because its not old. For example, movies like Brokeback, Eternal Sunshine, and Maria Full of Grace ive watched multiple times even though they've only been out a couple years, and each time theyve had the same impact on me as before. I've also watched Eli Sunday's sermon in There Will Be Blood about a million times now and I still get chills down my spine. On the other hand I've seen Citizen Kane twice. The first time I fell asleep, the second time I stayed awake and have never been happier when a movie ends.

I did a little tally so far because I was curious:

(http://aloader.com/files/8/tally01.jpg)

Of course there are MANY movies picked twice and once, I'm just narrowing it down for discussion sake. Also note anyone who had a starwars film in their list I simply classified it as a "Starwars" pick... and if anyone had two, three or even 4 starwars movies in their list I simply counted that as one overall pick... just to simplify things. Same goes for Lord of the Rings.
Title: Top Films of All Time
Post by: smirnoff on March 06, 2008, 08:32:56 PM
SO, is there anyone who hasn't yet seen something on that list?

Now these aren't what I think are the 20 greatest films ever made but the 20 that I can think of that touched me in some way, that made me realize and contemplate the power of film. Jaws and Star Wars being the two that affected me earliest in life and probably the most deeply.

09. Tenshi no Tamago (Angel's Egg)
16. Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise


You just reminded me to watch Angel's Egg. It's been on my list of things to watch for a long time.

Umi ga Kikoeru is pretty damn good but I have to throw my love to Only Yesterday as the overlooked ghibli masterpiece. Millennium Actress is definitely the crowning achievement of Satoshi Kon along with Paranoia Agent. As for Honneamise, it's technically impressive but leaves me pretty cold. I'm more a of a Mind Game/Cat Soup kinda guy, ya know?

Also, I love your avatar. It makes me want to watch it again.

Only Yesterday deserves a DVD release, but it did get shown on TCM back in January of '06.  Honneamise and Akira are the two films that I most closely associate with the heights of the golden age/bubble economy in Japaneses animation.  And as great and innovative as Mind Game is, I have a deep love for hand drawn cell animation.

Have fun trying to wrap your mind around Angel's Egg...

I'm a little late on this one, and they're in no particular order, so just excuse the numbering (it's so I don't go over 20, you see!)

I will also 'try' to include only one film by that director, and I will go with 'desert island discs', also.

Here goes...

1. In the Comapny of Men
2. Raging Bull
3. Lovers of the Arctic Circle
4. Crimes and Misdemeanors
5. Buffalo '66
6. House of Games
7. Dead Ringers
8. Gummo
9. Short Cuts
10. Swingers
11. Stranger Than Paradise
12. Wild at Heart
13. Dr Strangelove
14. Boogie Nights
15. Kicking and Screaming (Baumbach)
16. Dazed and Confused
17. Clerks
18. The Thin Red Line
19. Bladerunner
20. Glengarry Glen Ross

Hmmm, seems to be quite a few Indy comedies on there, and I am leaving off some greats, but I think it's kind of varied and would keep me amused on the island... for a while anyway!

Does SMF do Unicode...? Yes it does! 七人の侍! "shichi-nin-no samurai". Yes, go watch it now.

On an unrelated note, how do y'all keep track of the films you've seen? Do you use a database of some sort? I've put everything into Netflix, but it's not a real database. That is, I can't say "give me by favorite 20 films of all time", or "give me my favorite Westerns of the 1970s", or "what films did I watch in 2007". I don't have the kind of brain where asking myself those questions gives reasonable answers...

Good point. We need a Filmspotter database!

Art Garfunkel does it with his books...

IMDb is what you're looking for. For example, if I want to know which is my favorite movie that won Best Picture in the 1940s, I do a search by "Best Pic Winners + 1940-1949 + sort results based on my ratings", and I get this:

(http://i28.tinypic.com/mskjk6.jpg)

... which tells me:

1) there's still a lot of stuff I haven't seen;
2) I probably underrate movies;
3) I'm voting for Casablanca in this poll (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=3900.msg124366;boardseen#new).

Yeah you should use IMDB. After watching every film I rate it out of 10 on imdb and a record of my vote history is kept which is useful for reference. You can then sort the list by rating, by year, etc. Here's mine for example:

Thanks, everyone. I've got star ratings of most of the films I've seen, at least in the last 10 years, on Netflix. I assume there's no way to export that data from Netflix to IMDB...! Maybe if I'm bored some afternoon...

I considered this to be move of a favorite film list, while my ballot I considered to be a best film list, which in my mind are two different things. Favorites have flaws that you're willing to overlook for various reasons (nostalgia, a personal connection, you just have a lot of fun with the movie, etc.) and I took that into account when filling out my ballot. Plus, there's the Schindler's List effect: it's hard to consider a one-timer one of your favorites, even if you think it's a great movie.

What the hell is Tale of Tales and why have I never heard of it?!!

Yay, we have two films in common!  Though another five of yours would be in my Top 50, I think.  It hurt to leave off Sunrise, Ugetsu L'Atalante, and Rules of the Game; and a few others I couldn't justify including without a second viewing (especially Celine et Julie).

Here's a list of my Top 20 films. Ranking them would be too difficult, so I've listed them chronologically. The list is only valid for a certain period, too—until morning—when, upon getting out of bed, everything changes. This happens every day. Needless to say, there are also plenty (plenty!) of films I'd like to see but haven't yet had the pleasure. Yada, yada, yada...

The Birth of a Nation (Griffith, 1915)
Arsenal (Dovzhenko, 1928)
The Passion of Joan of Arc (Dreyer, 1928)
Olympia (Riefenstahl, 1938)
The Rules of the Game (Renoir, 1939)
Citizen Kane (Welles, 1941)
Out of the Past (Tourneur, 1947)
Rear Window (Hitchcock, 1954)
Pather Panchali (Ray, 1955)
Wild Strawberries (Bergman, 1957)
Floating Weeds (Ozu, 1959)
The 400 Blows (Truffaut, 1959)
Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors (Parajanov, 1964)
Intimate Lighting (Passer, 1965)
Stalker (Tarkovsky, 1979)
The Axiliad (Leszczynski, 1986)
Damnation (Tarr, 1988)
Rebels of the Neon God (Tsai, 1992)
Chung King Express (Wong, 1994)
Underground (Kusturica, 1995)

What the hell is Tale of Tales and why have I never heard of it?!!

i don't know Tale of Tales but that is an intriguing screen-shoot

Tale of Tales was twice voted (that I know of) as the greatest animated film of all-time by two animation body/organization (a poll and a jury).  Norstein is highly revered by animators and animation fans often times referred to as one of if not the greatest alive.  Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli are fans and held a Norstein exhibition (info (http://www.nausicaa.net/wiki/Studio_Ghibli_Museum_(Exhibition_-_Yuri_Norstein))).

Norstein bio and career overview info (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuriy_Norshteyn).

I highly recommend seeking Tale of Tales out and other Norsteins especially The Hedgehog and the Fog and his short contribution to Winter Days (2003).  Both as well as other Norstein directed films can be found on YouTube.  All of Norstein directed films except one (I think) are found on the Masters of Russian Animation DVDs Volume 2 and 3.

Roujin, I hope I get to see your list soon.  You haven't posted yours yet, right?  (You, too, skjerva?)  I'm gonna go back and check.

skjerva, Jeanne Dielman.  Right on!

Hey, but I got The Godfather and Part 2 ranked ahead of an Erice, Vigo, Ray, Dreyer, Parajanov, Tati, Deren, and Norstein!

This list was a mix of favorites and what I think are some of the greatest films.  A list of favorites would have a John Hughes film on there for sure and other popular and mainstream titles as well.

Should be three, really (Tokyo Story).  Any Ozu could've made it.  There are a bunch of films that hurts me to leave off of my Top 20.  Just so many great films out there.  Celine and Julie really holds up on revisits for me.  Feels fresh each time.

Using the same one? For the top 100 thing? not even close. I havent even seen half the films on his list (I think Stalker and In the Mood for Love were the only two on the list I sent in). I just think it's a fascinating top 20 :O The Godfather films back to back was especially impressive.

No joke.  No, I'm not Kevin Knox.

See Reply #103 on Page 7 of this thread in which I said my list was a mix of favorites and some films that I think are the greatest.  It's not a pure greatest films of all-time list nor is it a list of favorites through and through.  In the case of The Godfathers, those are favorite picks.  I wasn't trying to say they are the masterworks of American cinema and nothing comes close.

What do you do for a living?  You must be a film professor or something.  Help me out here.

Not a film academic, film critic, or film programmer.  I have a non-film related 9 to 5.  I'm not the only film watcher like that here and elsewhere.

At first I was thinking I'd be way too embarrassed to post my top 20 list (since I tend to love more of the guilty pleasures and haven't seen a lot of the serious movies that most people will pick), but maybe I should just to even things out from Verite's list  :D

I'm sure as soon as I hit the "post" button I'll think of a bunch I forgot, but here goes nothing:

Amelie

In Like Flint
The Wicker Man (1973 version)
Annie Hall
Casino Royale (1967 version)
Ghostbusters
Sleepy Hollow
Help!
What's Up, Doc?
Revenge of the Nerds

Choosing a favorite from the Star Wars trilogy would be like asking a mother which child is her favorite, so I just left them all off.

i think Land is my fave just because it pretty much has the best elements of all previous works.  the end of Night makes that film, just brilliant; Bub makes Day; and Dawn is good, just a bit too something.  i've only done Martin for his non-zombie films, and thought it was eh

i've not done Fat Girl for a couple of years, but had a giant love fest with it in the day, and obviously still think highly of it.  really, i quite like everything i've done from her, prolly be a few in my Top 50-or-so

Because people who translate movie titles are stupid? I don't know how it is in the US, but over here they don't get one right. Like when they translated Million Dollar Baby to something like Shattered Dreams. Yeah, well done Mr. Translator.

I think a better title would've been "You'll probably hate the ending of this movie".

The ending was the best bit. It was deathly dull up until then.

Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
Superman: The Movie
The Princess Bride
The Truman Show
Tombstone
Twice Upon a Time

Several months ago, I started to make my own "top 100" film list. I just kept adding films, now it's at 220.

I've thought about how to rate the top list of films. It could be rated by what I think are the best crafted films. But these are some of the films that make me grateful that films exist.

I tried to pare down the list without repeating directors, but in some cases, such as Coppola and Hitchcock, it was unavoidable.

In no real order of preference, and subject to change at any given moment:

1. The Graduate
2. The Godfather Part 2
3. Almost Famous
4. Magnolia
5. Casablanca
6. Vertigo
7. Psycho
8. Requiem for a Dream
9. Sweet Hereafter
10. 2001 A Space Odyssey
11. Citizen Kane
12. Apocalypse Now
13. Natural Born Killers
14. Days of Heaven
15. Intolerance
16. Goodfellas
17. Breaking the Waves
18. Toy Story
19. Jaws
20. Pulp Fiction

And how could I forget: Star Wars, The Searchers, Taxi Driver, sex,lies, and videotape, The Incredibles, The Apartment, Wall-E,  Do the Right Thing...

Well, I didn't finish rewatching everything I would've liked (especially Raging Bull, Hoop Dreams, Once Upon a Time in the West, Vertigo, and The Third Man) so some of them suffered in their ranking.  Also, for my own sanity, I limited it to one film per director.  Other than that, these are my 20 favorite films of all-time (and, yes, next week this list will probably have changed).  I'd add pictures and stuff but I want to just get this done since I'm going to be out of town all weekend.

1. The Apartment
2. Boogie Nights
3. Pee-Wee's Big Adventure
4. Rushmore
5. Chungking Express
6. Le Samourai
7. Touch of Evil
8. The Passion of Joan of Arc
9. Seven Samurai
10. The Night of the Hunter
11. Rear Window
12. Charade
13. Raiders of the Lost Ark
14. Hoop Dreams
15. Toy Story
16. The Empire Strikes Back
17. Raging Bull
18. George Washington
19. The Battle of Algiers
20. Fargo

Just missing the list (some because of 1 film per director): In the Mood for Love, Vertigo, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, This is Spinal Tap, Days of Heaven, Fitzcarraldo, Jaws, Ghostbusters, Harold & Maude, Annie Hall, Dumbo, Back to the Future, Die Hard, Taxi Driver, Roman Holiday, Death Wish, Enter the Dragon

I put it in the list and that high because it actually is my favourite film of all time. And contrary to what many of you might think, Die Hard would probably be in my top 30.
Title: Top Films of All Time
Post by: ses on August 29, 2008, 12:33:46 AM
I can't believe I actually put together this list.  I feel like the top two are solid, but the rest could change at any time.

1. To Kill a Mockingbird
2. Rear Window
3. It’s a Wonderful Life
4. The Godfather
5. Jaws
6. Double Indemnity
7. The Big Lebowski
8. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
9. Raiders of the Lost Ark
10. Sunset Boulevard
11. LA Confidential
12. Sunrise
13. A Streetcar Named Desire
14. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
15. Empire Strikes Back
16. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
17. Some Like it Hot
18. High Fidelity
19. Singin' in the Rain
20. Night of the Hunter


EDIT: Swapped out Roman Holiday for Singin' in the Rain, how could I forget that one!

It's a Wonderful Life is such a nostalgia pick, Christmas tradition, that is why I love it so much.   Still worth checking out though.

It's also got a brilliantly radical structure, some of the best drawn secondary (and tertiary) characters ever, consistently wonderful compositions, perfect mise-en-scene, one of the best performances by a child actor ever (and, no, not the girl who cries, "oh daddy!") and equally good performances by the ultra-appealing adult cast, jaw-dropping attention to detail, and one of the greatest tearjerking scenes of joy ever committed to film.  :D

There's no way I'd get to twenty, so I'm gonna go until I run out.

1. Caramel
2. Sunshine
3. The Return
4. Ghost in the Shell
5. Persepolis
6. Annie Hall (this gets on the list because I have a suspicion it gets better with repetition. If this is a desert island, I want something with replay-ability. And to think this time last week I hadn't seen it...)
7. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Gosh. I know there's more, but I'm not gonna force them right now. Garden State would make the list except I've now seen it... possibly 10+ times, so the flaws I would ignore the first five times are becoming really obvious. Juno I have a suspicion would be the same, even though I love it muchly.

20. 40 Year Old Virgin - It's been years that I laughed at a movie from beginning to end. Nowadays, they seem to slow down in order to provide an actual plot to provide substance to the movie. This film does, but not at the price of compromising the humor. This movie was a real surprise for me.

19. Bridges of Madison County - A truly romantic story of how the escapist fantasy high/feeling that initially results with falling in love must eventually be realistically dealt with as the conditions & responsibilities of one's current situation come quickly creeping back in. I once heard that, in the context of human history, couples pairing up for the sake of true love is still relatively young. We as a species over-all , have not evolved enough yet to be able to deal & accept each other in a manner that would be considered as unconditional love ( which is the only real love). And it is because of this that the world population has yet been unable to formulate an effective means of discussion that would truly begin a process of unity between it's racial, social & gender factions. And maybe this is why so many of us make decisions more for the sake of security, emotionally as well as socially & financially . Decisions that may impede on our ability to follow our hearts & therefore sway us , individually and socially, from a path that would lead us to true love before it's too late.

18. Terminator 2 - One of those rare exceptions when a sequel is better than the original.
James Cameron, you are a god.
However, I've got a question: What is it that inspired the future sentient computer-technology that takes over the Earth, to put out a line of mean-looking humanoid hunter-killer robots, only to program the entire series with an English language that is weighed down with a heavy-@ss Austrian accent?

17. Exorcist - First of all, movies don't scare me easily. A few did when I was a kid, but not anymore now as an adult. Therefore I rarely watch "scary" movies with the idea that I'm going to get frightened in any way. These days, I just judge 'em based more on the quality of entertainment that I get from the story, art direction, acting, blah blah blah....
  I saw a preview of film as a kid, where the girl was on the bed as it shook. That night, I was scared as hell to go upstairs to my f#ckin' bedroom.
That f#ckin' movie.......

16. The Incredibles - One of the best voice castings for the lead roles I've seen ( or is it heard?) & it has a great story, full of charm, wit & family chemistry. I always thought that Hollywood never seem to be able to put out 100% in any feature dealing with superheroes, but they really did with this one. The effects are incredibly cool, the over-all visuals are stunning & the characters are all drawn with an equally high level of quality & dynamicism ( .... is that really a word?). Added with the "Jack Jack Attack" story on the DVD, & I know that it will probably be a long time before the family "I's" get dethroned as on my #1 favorite computer-animated movie ever.

15. Abyss (Director's Cut) - Close Encounters Of The Under-Water Kind. Personally, I think this is James Cameron's masterpiece, after Titanic. It's actually two stories in one. The alien storyline crossed over with the tension that builds with the crew & the SEAL team. And both plots are very well executed. This movie suffered from the edited version that Cameron was pressured into releasing, which is sad, because the uncut version is what truly reveals just how great this  movie really is.

14. Triplets Of Bellville - There are no words to categorize this modern-day "silent movie" classic. So I ain't even gonna try. Simply put, it's my favorite 2-D animated movie ever.

13. Spiderman 2 - I should've known that this was going to turn into one of my favorite movie adaptations of a comicbook superhero when, before I entered the theatre, my spider-senses didn't go off, all atingling an' sh*t.

12. E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial - There's nothing that I can add that to this film that hasn't already been said. Lemme just say, after several years of this movie collecting dust on my video collection, I watched it with my 6 yr. old niece a couple of months ago, & I'll be honest with you: I don't know which one of us left sitting there with more childlike awe & wonder on our faces.
She, b'cuz she thought that E.T., was one amazing tale.
 Me, b'cuz I thought that Elliot's mom was one amazing tail.

11. Pulp Fiction - What ain't no country I ever heard of.

10. Empire Strikes Back - For the movie itself, what can I say about it that hasn't already been said?
Instead, I'll just relay my opinion on the experience of this film.
This was back when movies would stay in theatres, not for weeks at a time, but for months.
I think that, on the majority, audiences today have been so desensitized from so-so blockbusters being released every other week-end, that they will never get to experience the feeling a big movie-event like Star Wars. The year of Empire was one of my fave summers ever as a kid. It was really cool knowing that I could hop on the city bus at any point during the season & go watch TESB. And every time that I did, the other audience members were just as excited to be seeing this film at the end of the summer as they were at the beginning. Every year that one of the 3 original films was released, you could not only feel the power of the "Force" within the air, but also, you could feel it in the air all season long.

9. Ghandi - The British Empire, humbled via one man & the power of peaceful resistance.
Nuff said.

8. House Of Flying Daggers - Growing up, it always frustrated me whenever the majority of big budget action flicks or martial arts movies of the time often seemed to sacrifice on story to make room for the big bangs & the action effects. It was generally said, that in these types of movies, you couldn't really have both. And I was one those kids who always asked "Why not?"
And then came the House Of Flying Daggers. And with it's beatufil story of love & intrigue, combined with lavish costumes, great performances & unique individually themed action sequences, it seemed to asked the very same question.

7. Raiders Of The Lost Ark -
Best.
Action.
Adventure.
Movie.
Ever.

6. Good Will Hunting - Mork wins an Oscar for his portrayal of a down to Earth Southie with a sympathetic ear?
Well, how do you like them apples?

5. Goodfellas - You just can't beat this gangster movie for charismatic energy. Scorcese pays close attention to the minute details that the mafia engage in for the sake of maintaining the lifestyle that they have become accustomed to. And then director shows how that type of self-contained lifestyle can only eventually crumble as the outside world continually changes & evolves.

4. Aliens - This movie has everything that I look forward to in a sci-fi adventure. Suspenseful action, solid story, distinct characters (with great chemistry) , great visuals, kick-ass aliens, a turning plot-twist ( we all thought for sure, that Bishop couldn't be trusted), & of course, a catch-phrase that made the entire theatre roar (" Get away from her, you bitch!").

Mannnn.... I wish I had acid for blood.

3. Close Encounters Of The 3rd. Kind - For me, the most realistic handling of a story of aliens ( inspiring films like Contact & Signs which tried admirably to emulate), that it made it almost believable for me that extra-terrestrials do exist. Also, it was done with such a sense of awe-inspiring hope & elegant beauty, that it almost made me wish that they did indeed exist( & maybe aliens do, but that's an entirely different website, altogether).

Mannnn.... I wish a UFO would come down & fly me away into the limitless potential of space.
(Sans anal-probes, of course.)

2. Superman - Yep. The fact that this #2 of my favorite movies ever is evidence that I am a huge comicbook nerd. And since admitting that usually doesn't garner much respect, I only expect the best when a project interprets my favorite medium up on the big screen. We comicbook fans don't need any more ammunition to makes us seem any more goofy. We can do that all by ourselves. ALL by ourselves.
And no matter what anyone says, this is the original gangsta of superheroes. So it is only fitting that the last son of Krypton's big-budget movie debut should turn out to be the one that all other comic-book based superhero movies must be measured by. And while I know that this movie does have it's dated flaws, it was, just like the character whom it portrayed, the one that started on how epic the idea of a superhero could truly be.

1. The Godfather - I could go on & on with why I agree with so many people of why this is such a great movie, but instead, I'll do a top ten within a top ten.
Top 10 reasons why I like the Godfather:

10. The late great John Cazale.
9. Marlon Brando is back with a performance uniquely his own.
8. James Caan. IMO, his best performance ever & the best character in the movie.
7. All the "oranges=death/violent act" scenes.
6. Apollonia!!!
5. Vito Corleone's "...And that I do not forgive" speech during the meeting of the criminal masterminds.
4. Lines like "Sleeping with the fishes" or " Time to take out the mattresses", phrases that have since become part of popular culture.
3. Sonny's death scene.
2. The theme song.
1. Francis Ford Coppola's masterful use of foreshadowing.
Example:When Luca Brasi ( the guy who ends up sleeping with the fishes) goes to make a deal with the rival crime-family, he walks thru a glass door that leads to the bar where he will meet his end. As the door closes, the scene is shot looking at Luca from behind, setting up the shot to so that you will notice fish designs that have been engraved into the glass & give the impression that they are surrounding Luca's body.
Awesome.
Simply awesome.

The first time I saw Triplets, in the theater, I completely adored it. The second time I saw it, on DVD, I was a little bored, and didn't find it nearly as fun. Does this movie require surprise, or do I need to get checked out for a brain tumor?

I saw it with my mother and we weren't entirely sure what to expect. It's very quirky, but I certainly thought it was quite endearing. But yes, when I saw it on TV recently there wasn't much to hold my attention... I can't remember if something else was on... Maybe I was waiting for 30 Rock or something. Maybe it does need the big screen...

Nah, there's plenty of good ones, plenty of great ones even. But, I stopped going just by memory of movies about a year ago, so for something like this I only went off the list I keep of all the movies I've seen and actually rated. There's only about 280 that I've actually seen since I started doing that, so a lot of tremendous movies that would possibly be in my top 20 I didn't bother listing. I know it probably seems endlessly pedantic, but I like to try and actually keep track of the films I've seen, so unfortunately all of the great movies that I saw before I started keeping the list I have to see again so I can more accurately judge them.

There is no misspelling, because nut is in fact a word, there is wrong word usage in the case of nut instead of but, but there's nothing wrong with the phrase, as is. That is grammatically correct, and including the word "it" in the phrase would only add an unnecessary word to the phrase. :P

I know he didn't mean much by it, but the one time when he does get annoying is when he ignores posts made in response to others just so that he can type out one of his not remotely funny and lame attempts at a burn. If he can ride around in every topic doing that then there's no reason that people shouldn't be able to respond to him when he does this. It's not like it's a serious matter or anything.

I used to have a top 20 films, but then I decided it was useless because aside from the top 5 I change my mind about it nearly every few minutes. And even the top 5 changes order constantly. The real problem is that there are just way too many films out there to choose only 20. And I haven't even seen most films.

Straight Story (When I need that reminder about family)
George Washington (another beautiful one to watch)
Songs from the Second Floor (If i watch it enough maybe I'll figure it out)
Amelie (beautiful love story)
Mulholland Dr. (another to watch and try to figure out)
Spirited Away (the most beautiful animation ever)
Before Sunrise (there are only a few movies about love that I love, this is one)
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (here is another)
Once (and a third, but this one more for the music)
WallE (I could pretend I am WallE all alone and hope a beautiful robot named Eve will come for me)

I recently had to make a list for another group I am involved in and it turned out differently than my previous one. A few films I have seen because of this board have been added. They are alphabetical, because ordering them would be like choosing one child over another.

I have an odd mixture of sappy romance and super violence. Not sure what that says about me :D .

Almost Famous (a masterpiece of music, male friendship and first romances)

All the President’s Men (the best political thriller ever made)

Before Sunrise/Before Sunset (the greatest love story put to film with the greatest ending of all time. If there is not a third one my life will end incomplete)

Big Lebowski (My favorite comedy. A movie that gets better with each viewing)

Boogie Nights (pure genius visually and a great mix of drama and comedy)

Bourne Series (the best action series of all time. Yes its better than Die Hard :D )

Chunking Express (thank you far east bracket for giving me one of my new favorite directors)

Fight Club (Fincher's style mixed with Palahniuk's twisted mind= awesome, period)

The Godfathers (enough said)

GoodFellas (the best mob movie of all time, hands down)

High Fidelity (the best male romantic comedy ever made)

Inherit the Wind/Contact (the best discussions of science and religion ever put to film)

Let the Right One In (my favorite new movie, who knows if it stays on this list in time, but right now it belongs)

Oldboy (the best revenge film ever made)

Once (a movie whose music actually makes my hair stand up)

Pulp Fiction (the best film of the 90's. Give up all arguments otherwise)

Raging Bull (one of the best acting showcases of all time)

Se7en (the best serial killer movie ever made)

Taxi Driver (the dirtiest, grimiest, best film of the 70's)

Zodiac (the 2nd best serial killer movie ever made and one of the best detective stories ever)

No, it was actually a list I made elsewhere. And I put it by The Island so people wouldn't make lame jokes about me liking a Michael Bay film.

Michael Bay's the Island was hugely entertaining. I loved it. Just to look at, it's beautiful. And on top of that it's got ScarJo in it. I deal breaker for some it seems, but not me. It's an under appreciated popcorn flick imo.

It was a godawful rip-off of Logan's Run with hyper-active editing, bad cinematography, awful sound, and Bay's attempt to make the sci-fi portion look like Minority Report.  It CINECAST!ing sucked!

As has been mentioned, this is not my top 20 films, but the 20 I would want to bring with me on a desert island.  Some movies continue to be in my top list because I don't watch them all the time.  And some-- e.g. Million Dollar Baby-- are great films, but I don't really want to watch them again.  So if I knew that I was going to be shipwrecked/planewrecked on some deserted island with a computer and a generator (how convenient!), then these would be the movies I would bring

You might notice that there are a number of children's movies.  This is because they are made to be watched over and over again, and after a few years on a desert island the subtlety of social interactions might be lost on me.  So no Pride and Prejudice!



Spirited Away
     (Have to take it because I’m not sure I can live without it)

Finding Nemo
         (I’ve watched it 20 times, so I know it’s got longevity)

Star Wars: A New Hope
          (Ditto)

Laurence of Arabia
         (Really stirring.  Might help me gather up the energy to survive another day)

The Mission
         (It might give me tips on dealing with indigenous peoples?  Possibly the best religious film every made—I just love it)

Wall-E
        (He can give me tips on dealing with loneliness)

Groundhog Day
         (When every day just seems the same, how to make the best of it)

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
      (Is forgetting my past better than remebering it?)

Mary Poppins
       (so I’ll be singing the songs all day for years—who cares?  Very re-watchable.)

Pulp Fiction
        (Couldn't think of a good reason why I'd be bringing this film.  I just need to see it again, I think)

I [heart] Huckabees
       (to laugh off the meaning of it all)

Synecdoche, NY
       (I haven't seen it yet, and I've been anticipating it too much to go on a trip without it)

Modern Times
           (So I can remember what I’m not missing)

Mulholland Dr.        (This one and the rest are just movies I still need to figure some details out—a decent pastime on a desert island.  Although this David Lynch film might take a lifetime just to understand the basics)

Citizen Kane
       (Why a wagon?  Why not a raggedy ann doll?)

Memento
     (Does the timeline really work?)

Brazil
      (I need to figure out all the jokes-- another movie to help me remember what I'm not mising)

Adaptation
      (Did Charlie Kauffman really write this ending?)

Paprika
       (Who are all those people in the dream, anyway?)

and, finally:

Cast Away
        (man, I’m glad I’m not him… wait)

Let's see if I can come up with any reasonable list... Not so much arthouse type, more the twenty movies I liked watching most...

No particular order, except for my number 1.

- Shawshank Redemption. Kind of pedestrian, I know, but I liked the story in my "I read ANYTHING by King phase" and I love the movie

- Dead Poet's Society. I think Mr. Keating is a bad and dangerous teacher, but as a movie character, it works beautifully.

-M. Peter Lorre gives the performance of his life in an almost flawless movie. Germany has not made that many great movies since the invention of sound, but this one is GREAT!

- Sixth Sense. Okay, this is maybe "just" very,very good,not great, but it was the first film I saw in the cinema after starting to date the woman who is still the love of my life, so it has earned a soft spot in my heart.

- Chasing Amy. After what I have just said,I need to mention my favourite love story. I hate the use of coarse language for its own sake, but Kevin Smith never does this. The scene when Holden confesses his love is kitsch as kitsch can - and works for me every time!

- The Crow. Another (dark) love story. In my eyes the opposite of "Clerks" (funny, but dark at heart), this movie has great visuals and maybe the best connection of images and soundtrack I have ever seen.

- Magnolia. I bought that movie almost by accident, and I watched without any expectations. Imagine my surprise being moved to tears...

- The Dark Knight. I am a fan of the comic books. I endured and suffered through the abysmal Batman and Robin. I liked Batman Begins. But I was completely and absolutely blown away by this one. Heath Ledger scared me to death, Aaron Eckhart impressed me a lot - this is a classic.

- The Empire strikes back. NEEDED to have some Star Wars here. And this is , for me, the best there is.

- Highlander. Yes, it is soooo eighties. Yes, it is an fantasy action movie. Yes, it is cliche. Yes, the sequels are terrible (The Source reigning as my Worst Movie ever, right in front of Batman and Robin and HighlanderII).But I love the movie, love the soundtrack, and this one montage where Heather ages within some minutes is wonderful. Admittedly,I first watched the movie on TV when I was about 12 and easily impressed...

- Adventures of Robin Hood. Love Robin Hood (Robin of Sherwood being my favourite TV sgow ever), and this is classic escapist swashbuckling entertainment at its best. Errol Flynn is the embodiment of light-hearted fun

-Blus Brothers. Totally love it. It is absolutely non-sensical, but who can resist the music and the fun? A lot of people? I am none of them...

- The Commitments. Same here. Plus, the first time I saw it was on an open air screening with live music.

- Citizen Kane. The cliche choice. But some cliches are cliches because they are true. Citizen Kane is that good.

-The Fire Tongue Bowl. Another German movie. And the best there is. A school comedy with a serious core, and Heinz Ruehmann at the topof his game as charming Hans Pfeiffer (with three f!)

- Freaks. Genuinely disturbing after all these years, maybe the best classic horror film.

- Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. In my opinion the best of the trilogy, an outstanding achievement. I have loved the Hobbit since I was three, and I was critical of the film version. While Fellowship was good, this one blew me away.

-The Last Unicorn. I really like the melancholic feel of it (and Christopher Lee's voice in the German dub is amazing! One of the few cases where I prefer the dubbed version!). The music is great, too.

- Dawn of the Dead 1978 (European cut by Argento). The remake is a very good piece of horror, but there is nothing like George A Romero's original. Not to clear from my list, but I am a horror movie buff. I like everything from silent horror, Universal, 70s terror cinema, 80s slasher, gore excesses, psychological horror, you name it. This movie is the epitome of horror for me. It is apocalyptic, frightening ultimately hopeless. Oh, and gory... While maybe not top-notch in the area of acting, I do really like this one because of the shock and scare value.

19 down, 1 to go. And the number 1 is...

- House of the Dead. Just kidding!!!
 Of course I am talking about:

- It's a wonderful life. My favourite movie, I just love this one. I have seen it a hundred times (well,not literally, I guess)and it still gets dusty in the living-room near the end. What makes the film work is the fact that we all sometimes wonder, Is my life worth it? The film answers that one - yes, it is. As long as you have people who love you, it may not be easy, you may (and probably will) fail along the way, not all your wishes will come true, you will lose people that mean a lot to you (like George's father), but as long as there is life, there is hope. Yes, it is simplistic. Yes it is overly optimistic (it would be worse if Potter was punished in the end) Yes, it is kitsch. Frankly, I don't give a damn (wasn't that another movie???)

The Fire Tongue Bowl? That can't really be what the film is known as, can it? Die Feuerzangenbowle translated literally would be something like fire-tongs-punch...

Hm, I just checked: it looks like the drink "Feuerzangenbowle" is not really known anywhere else, which would explain why it doesn't have a proper English name.

Anyway, nice choice! It is a bold statement to call it the best German movie there is, but it comes close. (The rest of your list was fun to read as well!)

At least the movie data base of my choice (ofdb.de) translates it like that...

I really think that the German film is quite down and has been for a long time. There are some really good efforts (The Downfall; The Experiment; Run, Lola, run; The Boat; a number of works by Schlöndorff and Herzog; Muenchhausen; I am not talking about silent movies here) but they are few and far between. There are so many bad romances and really unwatchable "comedies" that it is hard to find the few gems. A lot of German movies are either stupid to excess or that concerned with content and message that they forget to entertain.
While I do really like some German movies, and the situation has improved over the last 15-20 years, to the point that most movies that make it to cinema are at least watchable, I still think that the German film industry  has not fully recovered from the creative bloodletting in the thirties and forties, so that the best movies from Germany were made before or during that - the great silent movie efforts (Caligari is still haunting, so is the Golem), Lang's work in Germany (before the war!) or The Blue Angel are, at least in my opinion, as good as or better than anything after that put together. Am I being too hard on German films? Maybe, but I was forced to watch "Otto- Der Katastrophenfilm"...


"Robin of Sherwood" has 26 of the greates TV episodes ever made! Especially the first two seasons are superb, Michael Praed (later of Dynasty "fame"...) gives a performance for the ages as young, idealistic Robin Hood, perfectly balanced by Ray Winstone's Will Scarlett, a cynical veteran who believes in this young boy from Locksley almost against his will. The pilot, the two-parter "The Hounds of Satan" and both season finals are, in my opinion, the Robin Hood ever captured on screen. The third season also has its moments (Jason Connery takes on the hood), but falls behind the first two.

And Clannad provides a mystical and enthralling soundtrack

Actually, I don't think you're being too hard on German film. Yesterday, I didn't think this through properly, because then I would have realised that I can't come up with many German films that are better than Die Feuerzangenbowle (and I haven't even seen half of the non-silent-era films that you listed).

Germany's output of the horrid comedies and total snoozefests (I probably have more affection for the "bad romances" than you) have almost turned me off German cinema altogether - I have seen only one German film in the theatre over the last 12 months. That said, I have never taken the time to analyze why good German films are so rare, but your explanation of an extremely extended recovery period after the fourties makes sense. Also, the financing procedures at work here put lots of obstacles in people's ways... But you have obviously put more thought into this than I have, so I'll shut up now.

Note to self: watch more pre-war German films...

11- Touching The Void

13- Into the Wild


And I love these two picks for the same reason I like Never Cry Wolf.  I'd forgotten about Touching the Void!  I'm and avid mountain climber here in the NW and that one sure touched a nerve!

Ok, so I'm the nerd who keeps an Excel spreadsheet with 100 movies.  I update the thing every time I watch a movie, and I save a new copy of the spreadsheet so I can keep the history.  I call it the ever-changing top 100. 

That's pretty nerdy, but I have an Excel spreadsheet of all the movies that my roommates and I have and then I have columns to denote year of release, director, cast, academy award nomination/wins and if it is an animated film I highlight it in blue, if it was a documentary I highlight it gray, if it was nominated for best picture I highlight it sea green, and if it won Best Picture it gets gold highlight. Also I have a column for whether I have seen it or not. I call it the AMDB, or Adam Movie Database, and it currently has 590 entries.

That is nerdy! But there's something wrong with your spreadsheet. You have Forrest Gump as #1. Out of 590, that should be about #400.

I have all my ratings in IMDB, which lets me use reasonably sophisticated database queries. It was tedious to put everything in, but it's pretty usable now...

10) Hotaru No Haka (Grave Of The Fireflies, 1988)


This movie was SO good but I dont think I could put it on a top 20 because I dont think I will ever be able to watch it again. Its number one on my "hard to rewatch" list for sure. If a race of sentient, but human looking, robots ever invade earth and we need a test to figure out who is human and who is not, we just show people this movie. If they dont cry they are not human!

Nope. Create a (free) account, log in, rate some movies. Then click on the "more" link to the right of the search box, then on "power search" in the left-hand column. To get your top movies of the George H. W. Bush administration, type 1989-1992 in the year field, in the filter area select Vote History in MyMovies/include, then select "Sort results based on my vote ratings", don't show IMDB vote ratings, and do show my ratings. Roll your eyes at the terrible user interface, and click Search. Admire Glengarry Glen Ross and The Hunt for Red October.

I use the "My Movies" feature, works to the same effect but is much handier, I think. Just click "Add to My Movies" after rating. I sort everything into a few different categories, such as "Seen", "Own", and "Series". You can customize how the lists are sorted and what fields are shown. So I have it set up so that one click ("My Movies") shows me a list of every movie I've ever seen sorted by my rating.

It also makes power-searching within only movies you've seen really easy.

10) Hotaru No Haka (Grave Of The Fireflies, 1988)


This movie was SO good but I dont think I could put it on a top 20 because I dont think I will ever be able to watch it again. Its number one on my "hard to rewatch" list for sure. If a race of sentient, but human looking, robots ever invade earth and we need a test to figure out who is human and who is not, we just show people this movie. If they dont cry they are not human!

First, my caveats:  I am a huge animation fan, especially Miyazaki.  And I can get "dusty-eyed" at almost anything since my son was born (don't know why, but so it has been for 16 and a half years).  Also, I have deep compassion for those in need.

That said, I found Grave of the Fireflies to not move me.  I apprecaiated their plight, and had compassion for them, but they were just never real to me.  So, as opposed to every Miyazaki or Pixar or even Paprika and Tekkonkinkreet, I had no emotions for these two-- they were just cartoon characters.  Two dimentional, flat.  So it was just a lot of depressing, but it didn't go anywhere for me.  Gave me some good info about WWII Japan, though-- not as much as Letters from Iwo Jima, though.

Honestly, I find it funny, too. Why would a film that tries so hard to pull the heartstrings leave me cold, while a movie that is mostly meant to shock enthralls me?

 Perhaps it is because Grave of the Fireflies is too close to the issues I deal with everyday (I am a pastor to the homeless and the mentally ill), and so I am numb to it?  That would be sad if true.  Perhaps it is because Grave of the Fireflies is just so hopeless, and as dark as Paprika is, it has a ray of hope?  Perhaps I am too focused on the imaginary that, in comparison, the stark realism of Grave just seemed uninspired to me?  Perhaps I will have to watch both again and revisit my opinions?  

 I don't know.  But I know what I like, and Paprika really worked for me (although I note that it doesn't necessarily work for everyone) while Grave really didn't.

Given the multiple entires for Lynch, Kubrick, Hitchcock, and Scorsese, I'm surprised not to see another Allen film on your list, especially with Crimes and Misdemeanors at #2.

Okay, this is my first, offical top 20 list I have ever made.  Yes, earlier I put a list of 20 movies, but those were movies I'd watch over and over again.  This is my list of my favorite-- which, again, may be different than my list of greatest films, but I'm not ready to make that list (if I ever will be):

First eschalon:
1- Spirited Away  (There is no other movie that I can place with this one.  It has been my favorite for ten years and nothing, in my opinion has come close to it)

Second eschalon: (I can never forget these movies.  If I had a pantheon, my top three would certainly go in it.  I don't have a pantheon.  So here they are)
2- The Mission
3- Finding Nemo

Third Eschalon: (Hard to really order these, I just love them all so much-- gush!)
4- Wall-E
5- Modern Times
6- The Gods Must Be Crazy
7- Apocalypse Now (redux)
8- The Emperor’s New Groove
9- Saving Private Ryan
10- Pan’s Labyrinth
11- Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind

Fourth Eschalon: (Solid movies, won't ever miss a chance to watch them)
12- The Player
13- Brazil
14- Synecdoche, New York
15- Pulp Fiction
16- Paprika
17- AI
18- Dr. Strangelove
19- Laurence of Arabia
20- Network


And then I've got about 40 movies in my Fourth Eschalon, but I won't bore you with all that.

I love your list.  Especially like seeing Synecdoche, New York and Network on there.  But there is one GLLLLLARING oddity on there.  It has more than one scene involving scorpions

Five.  That last category is the fifth, actually, not the fourth, repeated.

As far as the scorpions-- which is odd-- does it have to do with that my sign is Scorpio?  Hmmm....

A couple of those movies I've been meaning to revisit, namely Serenity and Children Of Men, because I really liked them but held them back from the full monty for reasons that escape me now. We'll see if watching them again raises them to the next level.

Personally I'm a fan of his more subtle talk with Zoe. Right at the end when he's asking her about the ship, and she starts responding about the ship. But, he's not asking about the ship at all, he's asking about her and she's talking about herself. Really great stuff.

Personally I'm a fan of his more subtle talk with Zoe. Right at the end when he's asking her about the ship, and she starts responding about the ship. But, he's not asking about the ship at all, he's asking about her and she's talking about herself. Really great stuff.

I don't like that as much, though I do love when he says "Could be bumpy" and she replies "always is"

Don't listen to these jokers, gman, it's a fine list. :)

Agreed.  All excellent movies, some surprises, and a couple I should check out.  Just what anyone should look for in a top 20.

A couple of those movies I've been meaning to revisit, namely Serenity and Children Of Men, because I really liked them but held them back from the full monty for reasons that escape me now. We'll see if watching them again raises them to the next level.

I think Children of Men is brilliant, and does warrant being on the list, but Serenity was a purely personal choice.

They're all personal choices, so no worries there. I loved both movies when I first watched them, but for some reason or another I held them back from master work status and kept them at really great status.

Well, yah they're all personal choices, but I mean that Serenity is the only film on my list that I'd expect not to appear on anyone's list. I love it the way most people who saw star wars when they were young.

i should actually revisit Serenity, it has two utterly beautiful moments/speeches, i wouldn't be shocked if it made my 100.  i just recently started revisiting Firefly, easy to forget how amazing that show is.

Which two moments do you mean?

That's an continuation of the conversation I was referring to, he's still probing about whether she can handle going out without Wash, and her response is the "life is hard, but I'll keep trucking" variety.

I know, It's just that that's my favourite line in that conversation, as some of the other lines feel a bit heavy handed. But I also took that line as a good amalgamation of the series and movie on top of that.

I just watched Serenity again last night with my daughter.  This time, I had the benefit of having Firefly under my belt, so I got the sub-emotions down this time.  Just plain fun at the highest level.  How I wish there could be more, but I know (sniff) it is not to be.  On the same level of any of the best Star Treks.

I think it just looks weird because the camera is at ground level, you don't see the part of the shadow that connects him to the wall. The reflection of the shadow adds further confusion.

Glad you added the photos!  (hmmm why don't I remember that still from The Graduate"?  It's been too long!)

Strangelove has been on my "gotta see" list of years.  Time to bite the bullet.  8 1/2 keeps coming up in my discussions with people about Synecdoche, New York so it's #3 in my queue.  Seeing these on your list is encouraging me to not keep postponing!

Post by: cotardelusion on July 09, 2009, 09:23:14 PM
This top 20 might be different a week or two from now but let's see what I've got to add. I'm not going to position these in any order, just 20 of my favorite films.

1. Godfather Pt. 1 & 2 (1972, 1974) - I don't think this needs an explanation, great films and are the pinnacle of what almost all gangster films strive to be. Had to be on this list.

2. Magnolia (1999) - Something about this film managed to sink to my core the first time I saw it. It continues to be my favorite P.T. Anderson film and one of my all time favorites. It may have it's problems to some but I love this movie.

3. A Clockwork Orange (1971) - My favorite Kubrick movie, but I wouldn't be surprised to see at least one more of his films somewhere on this list.

4. The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (1966) - I love westerns and this is the western to end all westerns. Absolutely love everything about this film and another director (Leone) who I wouldn't be surprised to find on this list somewhere again.

5. Days Of Heaven (1978) - My first Mallick film was The Thin Red Line, and since then my fascination in whatever the man attempts to do always manages to peak my interest. Side note: This film could easily be exchanged with Badlands on any given day.

6. Touch Of Evil (1958) - The first film noir I ever sat through and easily one of my all time favorites. Welles and Heston? How can you go wrong with that?

7. Jackie Brown/Pulp Fiction (1994, 1997) - My two favorite Tarantino flicks. It maybe fashionable to rip on the man, but I've never been one to conform. Brown is probably the most underrated of all his movies, great performances across the board and another knock out soundtrack. Sounds like a winner to me.

8. Taxi Driver/Raging Bull/Goodfellas (1976, 1980, 1990) - It seems foolish to even try and rank those 3 films, so I'm putting them all as one. All classics as far as I'm concerned.

9. Apocalypse Now (1979) - Obviously. (Need I say more?)

10. There Will Be Blood (2007) - Maybe a controversial choice around here, but it's hands above the Coen's No Country for Old Men and who's to deny the performance that is Daniel Plainview? I'm a HUGE P.T. Anderson supporter and this is no exception. An instant classic and movie I'll revisit years and years from now.

11. The Graduate (1967) - A must watch for anyone. It's themes even 30, 40, 50 years from now will be just as relevant as they were when the movie came out.

12. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) - This list wouldn't even be here today had Spielberg and Ford not given me Indiana Jones in my youth. Now to try and forget the debacle that is Indy 4.

13. City Of God (2002) - A brilliant film that even to this day doesn't get enough credit. A masterpiece, nuff said.

14. Dawn of the Dead (1978) - My favorite horror movie, Romero's best, and the best damned zombie film ever put to screen. A classic, and will always be among my top movies.

15. Blade Runner (1982) - Another Harrison Ford movie, and another classic. The best thing Ridley Scott has ever done and I pray to god that a sequel never comes to fruition.

16. Field Of Dreams (1989) - Along with being a baseball nut, this is one of the few movies that can pull back that metal plate I have covering my heart and make me weep. Not just weep softly, but like a little baby. Costner will always hold a place in my heart for making 2 of the best baseball movies ever made. (The other being Bull Durham).

17. Lost In Translation (2003) - Who doesn't love Bill Murrary? Another heart wrencher, but also profoundly uplifting. I love the soundtrack and the direction is spot on. Easily a movie I could watch on repeat and not grow tired of.

18. The Fly/The Thing (1987, 1982) - I wanna give some remake love too these two films. Cronenberg still consistently intrigues me with every new project (I did love Eastern Promises and A History of Violence).  And The Thing is one of the great horror films of all time. Both these remakes are better than the originals and deliver far more scares/chills/and creeps than 99% of the horror stuff we see today.

19. Die Hard/Lethal Weapon (1987, 1988) - Why action movies can't do what Gibson and Willis did in the late 80's is beyond me, but I love these movies. There respective sequels (with the exception of maybe Lethal Weapon 2 and Die Hard 3) are worthless, even though I do own all of them. I love the originals and will always come back to re-watch them.

20. Once Upon A Time in America/Eyes Wide Shut (1984, 1999) - Two "swan songs" for a couple of the greatest directors to ever live. Eyes Wide Shut is not a perfect movie and either is OUATIA, but going back and examining these films after their release it's almost impossible not to see at least scenes of perfection among both. Both films are compelling and equally worth your time.

Honorable Mentions:
Cool Hand Luke (1967)
Casablanca (1942)
Brazil (1985)
Capturing the Friedmans (2003)
Boogie Nights (1997)
etc.

I'll probably come back and add more as I remember them. There are too many movies floating around in this brain of mine.

Interesting you have Before Sunrise and not Before Sunset. Most people find the latter superior to the former.
Most people are stupid.

Well, at least there's someone to counteract me.

They're just children, they don't know what they're doing!

I am a grown ass man, sir.  You can take that to the bank.

(I just happen to love crappy movies)

Yeah, you ain't kidding...

At least 2 of them were jokes, so I was kidding a little. 

Which movies were jokes? The fun is in not knowing.

When going through the list, you can't help but smile! There are some quality comedies in there. However, I don't care who you are, Ocean's 12 should never be above Ocean's 13.

I actually debated about that in my head, and I can't believe I didn't choose 13, especially since it has Al Pac.  But whatever, I went in order.

Notable counts:

Comedies: 38
Children's Movies: 10
Jokes: 5
Christmas Movies: 2

Great lists pix, philip, sean and thor. A lot I loved, and a lot I need to see.

Eventually we're going to need a first page index somewhere so we can refer to these lists down the road.

That is a really good idea. I would make it but I dont think I can modify the first post.


All these lists are making me realize that after I finish my "Clovis watches the greatest" marathon I need to watch more foreign films.

Some of the titles included on multiple lists excite me because they will also be on mine. Le Samourai!

Damn sdedalus, Fitzcarraldo plummeted over 100 spots! Cold.

FLY, on the list you submit to Wilson, you might consider voting for just Death Proof intead of Grindhouse as a whole, since the former has more support.

Yeah, but that would require me watching Grindhouse, probably the DC, by itself and then doing the same with Planet Terror months later. Grindhouse is a single film regardless of what the Wiensteins say or how they release the DVDs. The magic as much in the experience as it is in the material and including just Death proof negates the genius of the fake trailers.

Nice list, Melvil.  We share 16 titles, I think, plus you have another six that just missed the cut on mine:

3. The Empire Strikes Back (Irvin Kersner, 1980)
26. Lawrence of Arabia (David Lean, 1962)
59. Singin' in the Rain (Stanley Donen & Gene Kelly, 1952)
87. Mullholand Dr. (David Lynch, 2001)
94. JFK (Oliver Stone, 1991)
98. Psycho (Alfred Hitchcock, 1960)

And I really smiled seeing Battle Royale and Memories of Murder on there.

Still not sure of all your titles, Thunderscore.  One of those shelves is pretty glary.

Because pictures are cool I want to include them for my list - I noticed pix had them all the same width while smirnoff had matching heights. Where are these image options?

Hey Keith, how are those super Lord of the Rings boxes? I have the extended edtions, but I didn't buy the huge boxes with the statuettes.

You can add height/width specifications inside an img tag in bbcode like so (quote this post to see what the code looks like):

Other people use Photoshop and such, or, in Melvil's case, software designed in a secret room at NASA.

Me, I do everything in mspaint.  Even things better suited for a spreadsheet.

they were a lot more awesome before the back room flooded last weekend - they were on the floor out there while we patched up the ceiling.

Some of the additional DVDs are really cool - the National Geographic special & the creating Golum book & dvd.  the 3rd comes with a Howard Shore uber behind the scenes extravaganza on the music - i've not opened that one.

Good stuff Melvil! We've got a 13 picks in common. I'm super happy to see 28 Days Later and Jurassic Park on a list. :)

We share 10 titles Kieth. It's nice to see Fight Club finish so strongly, and to see Michael Bay wasn't excluded from the party either. Good stuff.

Nice job, smirnoff, love the pics. Good call on Alone in the Wilderness, three cheers for public TV.
Indeed! Amazing story. I have to admit though, I didn't buy the dvd and book for the 300$ or so they were asking. ;D

Title I most need to revisit:

2. Never Cry Wolf (1983)

I need to get draw you for the MDC one month. I'll make it happen :)

I firmly believe that most people haven't actually watched ROTJ and paid attention to how ridiculous of a film it is at points. It's saved by some greatness in-between all the ridiculousness, but when it's ridiculous it is ridiculous.

The idea of the Empire being stopped by tiny bears with arrows and spears is the worst. I don't mind the Ewoks as characters, but having them take down the Empire was just stupid. The instant celebrating added in at the end, admittedly only in the SE, because yes, if one part of the empire's army is defeated then clearly the entire army all over the galaxy will be overthrown at the same time. The stuff in the Ewok village is pretty bad, as is some of the stuff in Jabba's palace before Luke arrives. I think there was more, but I haven't seen the film in about three years now.

I'm actually okay with the Ewoks' part in the Endor battle. Aside from the Ewok hang glider and catapult, I felt like most of what they achieved was at least plausible. I always look at them as having provided a needed distraction while the rebels got important work done. Sure they kill a couple AT-ST's and clobber a few guys, without which the entire plan would've failed, but I don't think they really accomplished anything far beyond their means.

I agree about the universal celebration at the end. Not a good bit. Luckily it's fairly short, and we're back on Endor pretty quick.

I dunno. Maybe I'm being an Jedi apologist. The good far outweighs the bad for me though.

I'm noticed a lot of people have Antanarjuat on their lists, including you Clov. I'm definitely going to have to check it out. Actually, I have it at home ready to go, I've just been putting it off for other things. It's not gunna happen before the deadline I don't think. :(

Koyannistqatsi... I don't really have an excuse for leaving it off.

I didn't dislike Sunset, but they aren't even really close in my mind. Sunset gets so political.

yeah, i reckon most of us feel that way.  i had meant to get around to watching the ones i hadn't seen from last year's 100, and maybe got to a couple of them this past year, but am saddened to read others' lists and see all of the films i should really still see.  The Third Man, since it is a lingering dictation, is probably the only contender i'll get around to before i submit my list, and maybe Sunset Blvd.  anywho, interesting list, weird seeing American Psycho so high up (i have been meaning to revisit that one, too), and i like all the Michael Moore :)

I am quite amused by the order of my picks, and some of the selections, as compared to other "great" lists.  But this is a personal list, not a list by some other standard, so I figured I just didn't care what other's thought.

And this is my first top 100.  I expect great changes over the next year.

Great list, steve (we share 23, woo!).

Particularly happy to see Le Samourai make the cut, as well as Seven Samurai placing pretty prestigiously. And of course your number #1 makes me very happy.  ;D

StarCarly, I love that you love Paranoid Park enough for it to make your list.

I must be crazy because I've only seen it once. I must have really really loved that one time.

Okay, I will be working on posting my top 100 today.  Still so many movies to see-- including 3 on my desk right now-- but you have to make a break somewhere.  However, before I post, I thought I would first produce the:

84. Mies Vailla Menneisyytta   The Man Without A Past

This is not the only pick we have in common, but I just wanted to say that I love this film.

me too, it is also on my list :)

How many Kaurismakis you got on your list?  I got that and Drifting Clouds so far.  Ariel might find its way once I start getting down to business.

also Lights in the Dusk, maybe, but doubtfully, The Match Factory Girl; i haven't seen Drifting Clouds, and it has been forever since Ariel, or La Vie de Boheme, for that matter

Before Sunrise, but no Before Sunset?

I always find it interesting that some people like sunrise more than sunset because its seems like sunset is just a perfected version of sunrise with an ending that puts it way over the top.

I didn't dislike Sunset, but they aren't even really close in my mind. Sunset gets so political.
My problem exactly. Also, the best moments of Sunset are when the reminisce about what happened in Sunrise.

nice list, and i'm not sure i'm too surprised by much on there, a nice chunk of films about film :)

So glad to see Eyes Wide Shut in #2 Basil. I thought I was alone in my love of that film.

currently at my 12-spot, though i am still doing a lot of shifting

Well, 5 if I would contribute but due to mental and emotional issues.  I'm unable to due a top 100 films list.

:(  you doing okay?  (and i wouldn't feel bad about just putting 10-20 in, that is where most of the points are anyway :) )

Well, I think I'm capable of doing 20 as long as it doesn't distract from my usual daily schedule. 

If I'm on a schedule where I do work on something.  I tend to have a good day.  If not, it's a bad day and I become extremely upset.  I'm really starting to question my state of mind at the moment and it's going to be crazier in the coming days as 3 more relatives are coming to stay for a night on Monday and well, it's going to be overcrowded and I don't like overcrowdedness.  I actually went through a period where I couldn't stand overcrowdedness.  Then I have another coming on Thurs. for a few days and then my grandmother & aunt will leave at the end of the month.  It's just getting crazy at home and the stress is really getting to me.

Damn, mouse!  Only 64th place for Manchurian Candidate?  Whahappened?

I think we share eleven titles, but you had a huge number from my runners-up list (twenty-nine, I think).  Of those, the ones that most made me smile:

89. Bowling for Columbine (Michael Moore, 2002)
86. Finding Nemo (Andrew Stanton, 2003)
83. The Verdict (Sidney Lumet, 1982)
80. My Life as a Dog (Lasse Hallström, 1985)
66. Three Kings (David O. Russell, 1999)
56. Contempt (Jean-Luc Godard, 1963)
53. Die Hard (John McTiernan, 1988)
36. Short Cuts (Robert Altman, 1993)

Especially that last one.  I should really watch it again (maybe before revisiting Magnolia for the bracket).

Are you Australian, or have Australian relatives? It's such a classic, but basically every line is an Aussie idiom - I wonder how the humour translates ...

If you find it funny, another Aussie classic is Crackerjack.

I'm not Australian, nor do I have any Australian relatives, I did however have an Australian section at my old vid store. I'm sure there were plenty of Aussie specific things we didn't get, but my gf and I did laugh consistently, so a fair bit of it must have translated. Michael Caton is so funny it in. Thanks for the tip, I'm sure i can find Crackerjack.

Yeah, it's so great! It was one of my personal discoveries of this past year. I'd just picked it up off the library shelf not knowing anything about it - it was before the Angry Young Men marathon. Such a fantastic experience going in with no expectations and then loving it so much.

I just saw it last March (thought I reviewed it, but I can't find anything).  It was pretty good (Grade: B).  The script was a little patchy, from what I remember.  Lots of rough transitions.  But it's one of those films where I was so interested in the circumstances of the production, I was going to enjoy it no matter what.  And, again, it's pretty good, even without that aspect factored in.

I should really see the 1995 version soon.  I'm a big fan of the book.

I thought I might catch some grief from on you this one. It's been years since I've seen it, and while I loved it at the time, I feel like it's a film I should really watch again before I put it on my list. We'll see what happens next year.  :)

If you haven't seen Zero For Conduct yet, try to track it down.  I really like British film in that decade.  If... is great, but the Anderson that's making my list is This Sporting Life.  The former was under heavy consideration as was Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.

Zero is great, but L'atlante is the one with the best chance with me.

This Sporting Life has less than a sporting chance right now. Just too many films.

I like you Oad.

Everyone likes Oad. How could you not.

Aaaaw, shucks. Thanks, guys.  :)


Yeah, it's so great! It was one of my personal discoveries of this past year. I'd just picked it up off the library shelf not knowing anything about it - it was before the Angry Young Men marathon. Such a fantastic experience going in with no expectations and then loving it so much.

If you haven't seen Zero For Conduct yet, try to track it down.  I really like British film in that decade.  If... is great, but the Anderson that's making my list is This Sporting Life.  The former was under heavy consideration as was Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.

Thanks, Verite. I'll definitely check those out!

Yeah, it's so great! It was one of my personal discoveries of this past year. I'd just picked it up off the library shelf not knowing anything about it - it was before the Angry Young Men marathon. Such a fantastic experience going in with no expectations and then loving it so much.

If you haven't seen Zero For Conduct yet, try to track it down.  I really like British film in that decade.  If... is great, but the Anderson that's making my list is This Sporting Life.  The former was under heavy consideration as was Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.

Thanks, Verite. I'll definitely check those out!

Cool.  And I'll just say that my favorite British film of the 60s is Billy Liar.

It seems likely that you are confusing The Seventh Seal with the Demi Moore thriller The Seventh Sign.  For the record, Seal is the one where Max Von Sydow plays chess with death.

LOL  ;D :D  well...er... no, I actually didn't get that wrong. It's just that Bergman is VERY hard for me to watch... same with WILD STRAWBERRIES... I did like FANNY AND ALEXANDER though... if it just weren't that long...  :P

I haven't but I really would love to see it. I don't know why I never got there.

Same here. I even have aleady bought it but the reviews weren't that great and as the dvd lacks English subs I am somehow worried not to understand the Australian English as not being a naticve speaker. Gotta give it a shot though...

I remember it getting pretty strong reviews over here. I would suspect that the Australian English wouldn't be too bad. I seem to remember reading that the main characters weren't native Australian anyway.

Worst List Ever
But you know. Whatever. I don't think there's anything here that doesn't deserve a spot. There's probably other things that should be here as well, but I was being a snob. I'm most disappointed I didn't see Eureka before getting the list in.

Here we go.

30. The Five Obstructions (Lars von Trier, 2003)
Disappointingly, this is the only doc on the list.

29. Vendredi Soir (Claire Denis, 2002)
My favourite of the limited Claire Denis I've seen.

28. Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (Pedro Almodovar, 1988)
Colourful, gorgeous, and just so much fun.

27. The Return (Andrey Zvyaginstev, 2003)
Moody, dark, brilliant.

26. Picnic at Hanging Rock (Peter Weir, 1975)
Possibly the best Australian film ever made. The first half hour is sublime.

25. Akira (Katsuhiro Otomo, 1988)
Smart, brilliant, impossibly deep and potentially unintelligible.

24. Cleo from 5 to 7 (Agnes Varda, 1962)
One of the finest title sequences ever. And it only gets better from there.

23. Leon Morin, Pretre (Jean Pierre Melville, 1961)
Clever, funny, sexy, and pure Melville.

22. Fanny and Alexander (Ingmar Bergman, 1982)
Superb.

21. Hunger (Steve McQueen, 2008)
Intense, visceral, and brilliant art. Fassbender is amazing.

20. Black Orpheus (Marcel Camus, 1959)
Full of life and joy in the best way possible. Also, scary and depressing as can be.

19. Seven (David Fincher, 1995)
Scary, thrilling, totally compelling.

18. Antichrist (Lars von Trier, 2009)
Compelling, confronting, brutal, and unexpectedly rich. It also has the best performance of the decade.

17. I Don't Want to Sleep Alone (Tsai Ming-Liang, 2006)
An utterly compelling and rich examination of the care structures in place in society. Great closing shot.

16. Titus (Julie Taymor, 1999)
On the big screen, this is just impossible. It's visceral, it's gorgeous, it's violent, it's sexy, and it's just one hell of a ride.

15. All About My Mother (Pedro Almodovar, 2000)
Hilarious, wonderful, colourful, great.

14. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Ang Lee, 2000)
One of my oldest favourites. The acting is amazing, and because of it, I will forever love Michelle Yeoh and Zhang Ziyi. So elegant.

13. Le Samourai (Jean Pierre Melville, 1967)
So cool. Just so, so cool. The influence it carries is awesome.

12. Magnolia (Paul Thomas Anderson, 1999)
Singing? Frogs? Awesome.

11. Werckmeister Harmonies (Bela Tarr, 2000)
The opening shot is without par. It almost entirely stands alone as a short film on it's own. The closing shot is perhaps even greater. The themes, the ideas, it's all so great. If I'd seen it less recently than last night it might be even higher.

10. 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick, 1968)
If there is an experience akin to seeing this in full, glorious 70mm, I'm yet to discover it. Beautiful. Rich. So smart.

9. Cabaret (Bob Fosse, 1972)
Minnelli is the best thing about this, but everything is so great. It is rich, beautiful, funny, and has the most incredibly handled turn of tone.

8. The Double Life of Veronique (Krzysztof Kieslowski, 1991)
Beautiful beyond belief.

7. Last Life in the Universe (Pen-ek Ratanaruang, 2003)
One of the finest uses of visual effects I've ever seen. It's also heartbreaking, and wonderful.

6. Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (Chantal Akerman, 1975)
This was made by Akerman when she was 25. It just makes me feel like an underachiever.

5. Yi Yi: A One and a Two (Edward Yang, 2000)
Heartbreaking. Wonderful. Beautiful. The shortest three hours you will ever experience in your life.

4. Do The Right Thing (Spike Lee, 1989)
Potentially the most visceral experience I've ever had in a cinema, ever. It's an amazing piece of cinema. And deserves to be in the Pantheon.

3. Mysterious Skin (Gregg Araki, 2005)
I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This is subtle, moving, and utterly beautiful.

2. Seven Samurai (Akira Kurosawa, 1954)
I can't believe it took me so long to see this. It's fun, it's beautiful, it's so well acted. Remarkably impressive.

1. A Brighter Summer Day (Edward Yang, 1991)
I don't know what to say about this, beyond that it is criminally under seen. It made me adore Edward Yang, it made me adore Chang Chen, it made me adore Taiwanese Cinema. Everyone should see this.



So there it is. There's loads missing. Specifically, Sunshine (Danny Boyle, 2007) should be there somewhere.

I need to see more films.

I'm also incredibly disappointed by the lack of old films, but it's almost solely because I didn't start keeping a serious list until about 2 months ago.

@ FLY

About THE INCREDIBLES: I've only seen it when it was originally released and I know that I've liked it a lot (I guess I've rated in 9 then). As time goes by the movie somehow lost its appeal... I simply have to watch it again and I am sure I'll rate it higher then. I dunno... sometimes I really love a movie after just having seen it and after a while the movie just doesn't hold up...
Anyway... there isn't one Pixar movie I did not like. :)

About FANTASTIA: I did not like it and I've just seen it (like most musicals) because it was in the imdb top 250 which WAS (thank God not anymore :D ) a list being absolutely essential to me. I guess I've rated it 1/10 but it's a long time ago and I hardly remember anything about it.  ;)

@ FifithCityMuse

I won't "massacre" your list as I haven't actually seen many of those movies.

Anyhow: some thoughts...


26. Picnic at Hanging Rock (Peter Weir, 1975)
Possibly the best Australian film ever made. The first half hour is sublime.

I HAVE BOUGHT IT LONG AGO AND DIDN'T DARE TO WATCH IT YET. THIS COULD BE A LOVE IT OR HATE IT MOVIE FOR ME I GUESS.

22. Fanny and Alexander (Ingmar Bergman, 1982)
Superb.

THE ONLY BERGMAN MOVIE I LIKE. IT'S JUST TOO LONG FOR MY TASTE.

19. Seven (David Fincher, 1995)
Scary, thrilling, totally compelling.

TOTALLY AGREE. THERE ISN'T A BETTER MOVIE ABOUT SERIAL KILLERS IMO.

18. Antichrist (Lars von Trier, 2009)
Compelling, confronting, brutal, and unexpectedly rich. It also has the best performance of the decade.

I'VE READ A LOT OF REVIEWS AND THIS MOVIE REALLY DIVIDES THE AUDIENCE I GUESS... EMPIRE HAS RATED IT **** WHEREAS TOTAL FILM GAVE IT JUST *  THE PLOT SOUNDS VERY STRANGE AND ALTHOUGH I LIKE DOGVILLE AND MANDERLAY I AM NOT SURE IF I WANNA WATCH THIS.


15. All About My Mother (Pedro Almodovar, 2000)
Hilarious, wonderful, colourful, great.

I AGREE.

14. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Ang Lee, 2000)
One of my oldest favourites. The acting is amazing, and because of it, I will forever love Michelle Yeoh and Zhang Ziyi. So elegant.

ABSOLUTELY. THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW WUSHU-MOVIES WHICH DIDN'T JUST HAVE GREAT ACTION SCENES BUT ALSO GOT ME EMOTIONALLY INVOLVED.

13. Le Samourai (Jean Pierre Melville, 1967)
So cool. Just so, so cool. The influence it carries is awesome.

A BIT TOO COOL FOR MY TASTE. I FELT HARD TO SYMPATHIZE WITH DELONS CHARACTER. GOOD MOVIE THOUGH: :)

12. Magnolia (Paul Thomas Anderson, 1999)
Singing? Frogs? Awesome.

I AGREE. AND TOM CRUISE CAN ACT!

8. The Double Life of Veronique (Krzysztof Kieslowski, 1991)
Beautiful beyond belief.

YES THAT'S TRUE OF COURSE BUT THE PLOT WAS JUST TO CONFUSING FOR MY TASTE. GOTTA WATCH IT AGAIN. I LOVE KIESLOWSKIS MOVIES AND ESPECIALLY JACOBS PERFORMANCE IN ROUGE SO I HOPE I'LL LIKE IT BETTER NEXT TIME.

2. Seven Samurai (Akira Kurosawa, 1954)
I can't believe it took me so long to see this. It's fun, it's beautiful, it's so well acted. Remarkably impressive.

I THINK IT'S A BIT OVERRATED AS I LIKE YOJIMBO OR IKIRU MUCH BETTER BUT MAYBE IT'S JUST THAT IT'S TOO LONG FOR ME... I GUESS I'VE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH LONG MOVIES AS MATTY (OR WAS IT ADAM?) HAS...
