Top 10 Favorite Movies

Jan 21, '16, 6:21am

Numbers 10-2 are just my favorites by genre, the top 2 though do have an extra something.

10- The Passion of Joan of Arc (silent film): non top drama without a spoken work.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4_KDf4xhU8
9- All About Eve (black and white): incredible performances in one of the best screenplays ever written imo.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPPJdOGshUM
8- Big Trouble in Little China (b film): a great fun time.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGC1bV4-fmk
7- Police Story 2 (martial arts): hilarious and insane stunts.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIcCUo7Xkxk
6- Halloween (favorite horror): still gets me, turn off the lights, lay back and then look out at your street and see the difference.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHuOtLTQ_1I
5- Akira (favorite foreign animated): make sure your chair reclines because this one will knock you back for sure.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UhLderbuGI
4- Hara-Kiri (favorite foreign): a masterfully crafted feast for the eyes, every frame is dynamite shit.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6tp8r0E68w
3- Young Frankenstein (favorite comedy): equal part comedy and a good ol fashioned monster movie.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpiHCZHGbF8
2- Fantasia: a great, early source of creative inspiration that I still reference in my creative work today.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3VqcTDf6l4
1- Terminator 2: perfect, period, summary finished.

The Top 5 will remain the same. Pretty sure about 6 & 7 too. 8-10 is where things get shaky and these 3 might be swapped out for 3 others down the line.

#1 Top Gun
This will forever be my favorite movie of all time
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAfbp3YX9F0

#2 Starship Troopers
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y07I_KER5fE

#3 Gangs of New York
Probably my favorite performance of Daniel Day-Lewis and my favorite villain every portrayed in a movie.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHVUPri5tjA

#4 Lord of War
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ej83QvHuiNI

#5 Blazing Saddles
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1V1c1yCQI5A

#6 The Iron Giant
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTnu-cGP17w

#7 Zero Dark Thirty
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuJTjOaJ7hA

#8 The Wolf of Wall Street
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idAVRvQeYAE

#9 Apollo 13

#10 Full Metal Jacket

Great choices. These are fantastic movies that are usually overlooked.
I also think Daniel's best performance was in Gangs of New York.

I think Starship Troopers is overlooked a lot because it comes off as a dumb sci-fi action movie (which it is in some ways) but Verhoeven did make subtle nods to the novel and the society that the Federation exists in. Its not heavy in anyways but if you're familiar with the novel, you'll notice some tiny details Verhoeven threw in the movie.

It was hard narrowing that list down though. There were so many movies that didn't make the cut.

Saving Private Ryan, Goodfellas, Rush, Aliens, Pacific Rim, Fury, Master and Commander, The Raid, Gladiator, The Original Kings of Comedy, National Lampoon's Animal House, The Fifth Element, Schindler's List, Dawn of the Dead (Zack Snyder Ver.), Public Enemies, The Rock, Jaws, Training Day, Sin City, Inglourious Basterds, The Kingdom, Let Me In.

Not set in stone since I'd say I have about 20 movies that I can roll around my Top5 depending on the mood I'm in but I'll throw 10 out of those movies here.

Predator /// American Psycho /// The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford /// Alien /// Jaws /// Memories of Murder /// Rocky IV /// Once Upon a Time In the West /// Full Metal Jacket /// Aliens

Top 10 Favorite Movies

Jan 27, '16, 5:53pm

Though no movie will ever mean as much to me as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, it's impossible for me to rank my favorite films, so I won't. This list is certainly fluid as I love so many movies for such radically different reasons, but if I had to pick ten these would be it:

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (mildish spoilers):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sy7YnrVXudg

Lawrence of Arabia:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uE0DBpw09SU

2001: A Space Odyssey:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebmwYqoUp44

The Shining:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmcnnRv58Z4

Alien:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdBu6VAESeI

Chinatown (SPOILERS - though, if you haven't seen this film, you should probably get on that):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uSz0mEtEsQ

Apocalypse Now:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3T-VAi2Xqq8

Blade Runner:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HU7Ga7qTLDU

Brazil:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dht_3NziwSw

Taxi Driver (easily one of the best intros of all time - there's a great use of visuals to communicate themes and character dilemma):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbvWoruvf5c

Also, just for the hell of it, since the Master didn't make it in to my top 10 but has one of my favorite scenes of all time:
