Re: Twenty Favorite Films?


[sign in to see URL]'t really know if I can list twenty, but here's my top 5, and also top 10 films I've seen recently

Dawn is number one for obvious reasons; the film has always been my favorite since I was a kid having nightmares over it. The story, characters, setting, and situation make for a perfect horror film.

1) Dawn of the Dead
2) Citizen Kane
3) Metropolis
4) American Psycho
4) Day of the Dead

City of God is my new favorite 'just seen' movie. The film is crazy; it's about a war between two hoodlum gangs in the slums of Rio, Brazil. Watch this one!!!

1) City of God
2) The Football Factory
3) The Cooler
4) Fahrenheit 451
5) Dummy
6) Expiration
7) Mystic River
8) Sever year in Tibet
9) Bad Santa
10) Two Days

Re: Twenty Favorite Films?


I realized only after posting this topic how difficult it is to think of twenty films. Anyhow, here are nineteen films(in no particular order) I have seen and will see again, because I really enjoy them:

Once Upon a Time In the West
Godfather 2
2001
Dawn of the Dead
Indian Jones and the Temple of Doom
Return of the Pink Panther
For a Few Dollars More
Blair Witch Project
Rocky
The Thing
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Empire Strikes Back
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Saving Private Ryan
Return of the Living Dead
Kill Bill(vol. 1)
My Name Is Nobody
The Natural
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Okay, I should apologize for not putting Citizen Kane on my list. Though Citizen Kane might be the greatest film of all time, the fact is that I would rather watch any of these nineteen films first for either humor, violence, music or pure fantasy.

The last good film I've seen is Big Fish, otherwise I have been intentionally watching bad films of various genres(try any film directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis or distributed by Troma).
