Quote from: FLYmeatwad
the best film I've seen to employ humor as a primary tactic, without sacrificing storytelling or anything else in exchange for larger laughs..

The Godfather: Part II
(Francis Ford Coppola, 1974)



Quote from: zarodinu
a powerful film with great cinematography, music, and two iconic performances.
Quote from: DOOM!!!
The performances were tremendous across the board, and on the whole the film was interesting.
Quote from: Corndog
The story of Vito was fascinating and I really loved that part of it, just as I did Part I.

8 1/2
(Federico Fellini, 1963)



Quote from: stevekimes
this is one of the greatest films I have ever seen.
Quote from: UberGeekyGirl
8 is shot beautifully and is full of sexy women. Marcello Mastroianni playing the main character Guido Anselmi (modeled after Fellini himself) did an amazing job of making us care about the character and understand reason everyone wants to be in his orbit. Claudia Cardinale is an absolute vision in this film as she portrays hope, purity, light and eventually disappointment.

I think this is a movie everyone should see.

12 Angry Men
(Sidney Lumet, 1957)



Quote from: ferris
I love the respect this film has for its audience.  It's basically 96 minutes of people talking, yet it is gripping, tense and thought-provoking.  How did this work so well?
Quote from: oldkid
The group of actors are truly marvelous, and the camera work is very well done.  But the real star is the script.  Each character, although only one note apiece, is well honed, and the general idea of establishing justice through reason is excellently done.

Raiders of the Lost Ark
(Steven Spielberg, 1981)



Quote from: michaelx
The beginning is fantastic, as is the excavation of the ark, and the false ending..it's a really strong, fun movie, and probably the best of the bunch
Quote from: CSSCHNEIDER
(this film) inspires me beyond words.. in the words of Beloq "We are just travelling through history.  This [Motion Picture] is history."

Grade A+

The Third Man
(Carol Reed, 1949)



Quote from: oneaprilday
I need to see this one again and again. 5/5
Quote from: clovis8
This is the best looking black and white film I have ever seen. Using really heavy shadows and bizarre angles, the cinematographer is able to infuse every frame with a unique visual language.
Quote from: Ferris
Surprisingly beautiful and compelling. Loved the setting and characters. 

Grade: A+

Vertigo
(Alfred Hitchcock, 1958)



Quote from: Basil
it's such a complex, haunting tale with an equally intricate moral web, that I was completely sucked in the whole time.
Quote from: Melvil
I had forgotten how amazing it is. Easily one of the best mysteries of all time. And what an incredible score!
Quote from: DOOM!!!
Hitchcock's finest and an enthralling tale. Stewart is fabulous, the film is shot wonderfully and the tale of love and the loss of sanity it can bring is timeless.

2001: A Space Odyssey
(Stanley Kubrick, 1968)



Quote from: 'Noke
2001 is easily the most confusing movie i have ever seen. Kubrick doesn't seem bound by film convention and just sort of lets loose. And it's brilliant.
Quote from: OmNom
Amazing.  Silent-but-deadly robot in space PERFECT.  Nothing equal to this
Quote from: FifthCityMuse
It's a truly, truly, remarkable, beautiful, devastating film. I loved every second of it.

Rear Window
(Alfred Hitchcock, 1954)



Quote from: arcnyc
Perfection.  Not a single wrong note.
Quote from: frantastical
The suspense still got me, Grace Kelly was still gorgeous, and Hitchcock's skill at telling a story without having excess dialogue was still there.
Quote from: BlueVoid
'Rear Window' is a completely gratifying film in every way.
