Re: All Time Movie Favorites

Alright since some you guys put all the macho tough guy stuff, I'll start the girly girl, not so tough guy movies:

The Goonies (who could forget this one?)

Sixteen Candles (for all the lovestruck out there)

and finally last, but not least....

The Breakfast Club (I know that we all have one or more traits of those characters!!!)

FYI....When my stepbrother was married at the The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park Co. that inspired Stephen King for The Shining, there was NO WAY I was staying there over night!!!! And then seeing the "Ghost Hunters" Halloween Episode, I will forever stand by my decision not to stay there! That place is creepy even in the daylight! But it actually made me appreciate the movie even more.

BTW...my fav all time movies

1. Hope Floats

2. Gone in 60 Seconds (I love Eleanor!!!!!!!!)

3. The Notebook 

The truth has no deadline...Oskar Schindler

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

I can't believe nobody said Lord Of The Rings Trilogy. Hands down my favorites. Aside from Skateboarding videos but I don't think those would count.

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

LOTR should definitely be on the list. I even read all the books like a zillion years ago.

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

Ok seriously one of the best movies I have ever seen is Unusual Suspects, I like the sixth sense and american beauty, but unusual suspects out ranks them. If you haven't seen it I recomend it!!!

What about Fight Club and Magnolia?

 Nobody else liked these two movies? 

I remember seeing the promos for Fight Club and thinking, that would be the LAST movie i'd ever watch.. who wants to see some stupid movie about a bunch of thugs starting fights... But then i stumbled across it one night on HBO right at the beginning, and from the line: "This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time." I was hooked - This is an awesome movie!

Magnolia: Another one of those "odd" movies that I seem to like so much.. From the urban myths at the beginning (and the end), Tom Cruse, Phillip Seymore Hoffman, the story, the music - this is another great, yet underrated movie..

 

Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall.

Re: What about Fight Club and Magnolia?

I thought Fight Club was pretty damn good. I wasn't going to mention it cause you already did. I almost want to read some books by that author just cause they are supposed to be freaking crazy, like Fight Club was. I'm just not much of a book reader anymore. But if I had to pick a Brad Pitt movie, I prefer Se7en.

Never saw Magnolia, I don't think...

Re: What about Fight Club and Magnolia?

 I think 12-Monkey's was Brad Pitt's best movie...Not only was that a good movie, but his portrial of "the crazy guy" was really good..   2nd best would be Snatch.. Didn't understand  a single word he said - but it was great..

Re: What about Fight Club and Magnolia?

Why haven't I seen 12 Monkeys yet? Put that on my to do list.

Snatch was awesome, (I still call my dogs, "dags"- as in "Yalikedags?" Sometimes even type it out that way, but then change it, cause no one would know what I mean) but overall I liked Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels better for a Mr. Madonna movie.

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

I was going to put Reservoir Dogs, but if I had to pick between Fiction and Dogs, I take Fiction cause of Bruce Willis.

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

Thought I'd bring this whole forum back into the light for a second...

The Big Lebowski is on Flix right now. F'n brilliant movie. I don't care that I have the dvd, there's nothing good on right now anyway... This is one of those movies where every viewing you notice something new, however small it may be, and it takes many times to fully appreciate the whole thing.

Oh, yeah. In two weeks they are finally releasing a special edition of A Clockwork Orange in the states! This was originally supposed to happen years ago!

Re: All Time Movie Favorites

Okay, let's see what we got...Happiness, American Beauty, Fresh, Requiem for a Dream, The 6th sense...I think those rank in my top 5. Good idea, H, it brings back some memories...good and not so good. juliek
