Reservoir Dogs is a brilliant movie imo.
a simple, 'pure' story, with a nice twist in the end, when you don't expect it, as there isn't that much happening at all for an hour or so. after Pulp Fiction i'd say this is Tarantino's best film.

If you genuinely think Queen of the Damned is a better movie than Bladerunner then there is no hope for you.

I think this movie is the top of the 'Batman' genre.
It would be unfair to compare this movie to a good thriller.
I'm not a big fan of this kind of movies either but this one is suprisingly entertaining.

People on IRC hate my list coz I added Spiderman
so Ill just secretly drop Spiderman's rank when noone is watching

Some people don't get nuances and subtlety. In fact a lot of people don't. That's why satire is possible, and why it's funny. It also makes things like Bladerunner so enjoyable. People either don't know or are too lazy to put things in historical contexts. I'd say that to them Bladerunner is just the sum of it's parts, the existential experience of viewing it. They don't know anything about cyberpunk and new wave. They can't make, or are again too lazy, to make connections between fictional symbolism and their lives (unless such symbolism comes in the forum of stale and jejune quotes and memetic devices that make you want to put a hole in your head).

When I see a movie I pay attention to more than just the obvious. I notice camera placement and how the shots are placed. I pay attention to the colors used, I pay attention what's laying around outside the room or outside environment - beyond what the director is wanting you to focus on. I look for foreshadowing and patterns in the story. I sometimes read up about the story and the context of the story before I go see the movie. I also don't take words from the screen play at face value - they're not being delivered by the actors ad hominem, they were written down and thought through before production on the movie began. It's symbolism, and it can have varied meaning and levels of abstraction.

That's the thing that people who place such value on banal action sequences and big fireballs and explosions will never understand. They see establishment critics (not your local dime newspaper critic) as elitist nerds because of petty ignorance and laziness. It's been my experience that such people see their own life with the same naive simplistic perspective, and they lead their lives with a blind and frustrated fatalistic attitude because they don't understand what's going on. The best part is that they don't even know that they don't understand. They don't know what they don't see in the movie, and they don't know what they aren't seeing in their lives. It's entertaining and depressing at the same time. It's why people vote for Bush.

Re: because we didn't have a favourite movie-thread in a while

When I see a movie I try to be as drunk as possible. Currently my favourite line from any movie is "I'M not supposed to be die". Entertainment is life my friend.

Re: because we didn't have a favourite movie-thread in a while

If she hadnt died it would have gone straight to video and th word would have been a much better place.

Although she would still be making music, so I guess one film is the lesser of two evils.

What movie is that line from? I saw 'Lost in Space' drunk of my ****ing ass. We sneaked liquor and beer bottles into the theatre and were drunk as shit already before even getting there - I was doing flips and falling over on the way there. Best ****ing movie I ever saw. The good ol' times.

Re: because we didn't have a favourite movie-thread in a while

here it goes

Donnie Brasco
Goodfellas
Heat
In Too Deep
Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead
Casino
Romeo Must Die
Training Day
Man On Fire
Traffic
Ali
The Corruptor
Chopper
Devils Advocate
The Shawshank Redemption
Gladiator
Serenity
Robin Hood Prince of Thieves

Anchorman
Monty Python films
Dogma
South Park The Movie

Lord of the rings Trilogy
Matrix Trilogy
Star Wars Trilogy

And because no one else will say them:
The Lion King
Aladin
Toy Story
Toys

The reason I said these last four is because, although I wouldn't really watch them now, I loved them when I was a kid, and they're brilliant films for that purpose.
Also I see nothing wrong with putting new films like Serenity on your list, because ultimately _everyone_ is putting a biased amount of films on from whichever era they were young or a teenager on because you're quite likely to prefer them because it's what you grew up with. I'm sure there are alot of good older films, but other than Star Wars and Monty Python I think i almost chose no films from before the 90's.

You're missing out. It's really your loss if you feel that way.

The food tastes the same, but i'm missing out on something by not cooking it.
I'm likening this to getting the same affect of the film's aesthtics even if you don't fully appreciate the technical know how.
This is not the same as missing out on the symbolism, because that is substance based, not value based (assuming we don't go extreme subjectivism here).
I have to agree with S|K on this tbh.
Sometimes the sheer genius of some productions just isnt that obvious.
A movie can be fantasticly well made, have a unique way of bringing the events and have a story with a brilliant context and subtle hints towards it and still be seen as a terrible movie by people that don't have a clue what their talking about.

The message people get is one thing, but how u bring the message and what the actual message was is also worth some credit.

Re: because we didn't have a favourite movie-thread in a while

A list like this is always hard to make because lets face it, our tastes change constantly depending on mood and other factors all the time. I'll try to list what I can think of that i'd rewatch anytime, but it's certainly not definitive:

The Matrix
Kill Bill
Pulp Fiction
Spirited Away
The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy (BBC version, technically a mini-series though)
Hercules Returns
Sin City
Fight Club
House On Haunted Hill (New version)
Pirates of the Caribbean
Back to the Future Trilogy
War Of The Worlds (Spielberg version)
Total Recall
Fifth Element
Tron
Kung Fu Hustle


That seems a little sci-fi heavy at the moment..I'll see if I can add more later, my DVD's are burried nder junk at the moment and I don't recall the titles heh.

This one time, on a family outing, I ate all the desserts, urinated on the tables and had sex with a squirrel. I think there's still a warrant out for my arrest thanks to that one.

Re: because we didn't have a favourite movie-thread in a while

The Truman Show.

Why? Its a load of wank. But listen... everyone has seen it and everyone has an opinion on it. You will be the life of the party if you are able to wax lyrical about that wonderful essay you wrote on it in GCSE English, just like everybody else.

But really, it is a good movie.

Good Will Hunting
Matchstick Men
The Godfather
Spartacus
Fear & Loathing
The Usual Suspects
Trainspotting
The Pianist
Hero

These are movies I like.

Re: because we didn't have a favourite movie-thread in a while

Sorry for this late entry but I was just reminded of it.

THE QUIET MAN

Ace movie all about the hilarious Irish and the way they drink and fight and abuse their women.

All of this and John Wayne too.

This one Irish guy is said to have done all three at once but I'm not sure how unless his woman was lying on the floor and he was just kicking her in the face or something. A problematic situation to say the least.

Re: because we didn't have a favourite movie-thread in a while

Why is it that so many people here like films that were completely massicred versions of the books, or at the very least not nearly as good?

Because if you've not read the book (and sometimes even if you have) it doesn't actually make any difference how much better the book is.

King Kong is surprisingly good. I'd recommend it for a bit of fun.
