Title: Favorite movies
Post by: euge on November 15, 2010, 12:31:39 am
Okay folks. Besides beer drinking I like movies. Sometimes they even go together. ;)

Favorite two movies of all time:

Segio Leone's 1966 Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Good,_the_Bad_and_the_Ugly)

Ridley Scott's 1977 The Duellists (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Duellists)

How about yourself?

Raiders of the Lost Ark. Still my favorite movie of all time.

Man this is hard.

My list is long, and if you asked me to name ten it may be different next week.  ::)

'Barry Lyndon' is most likely my top pick. Strange, I know. I just think it is perfect.

Barry Lyndon is a damn good movie.

The Leone trilogy is good, I'd agree there.

My favourites include:

Zulu.  Michael Caine's first and a classic.

Breaker Morant, great Boer War military courtroom drama, if a bit propogandistic for the Aussie side, as might be expected...its an aussie film.

Kurosawa's High and Low, Yojimbo, and a number of his other ones.

Martin Short and Charles Grodin in "Clifford" are very funny, I think, but I was somewhat young when it came out.  Still love that movie.

WC Fields in Its A Gift is him at his (IMO) best.

I have a few hundred movies I’d put in my top ten.  Here’s a few that I like in no particular order
1.   Fido – comedy, retro styled  “horror”
2.   The Lives of Others – foreign drama
3.   A Serious Man- Coen brothers comedy
4.   The Bothersome Man – foreign drama
5.   Being John Malkovich – comedy
6.   Kitchen Stories – foreign drama
7.   $9.99 – claymation thinker (also see Max & Mary)
8.   Oldboy – Korean horror
9.    High Fidelity – yeah I’m a nerd
BEST BEER MOVIE COMBO
10.   Ravenous – cannibal drama. Buy a few rauchbiers, order a pizza and have your, second date, vegetarian girlfriend over to see what kind of person she is.  Works out sometimes! (we’ve been together for 8 years now)

Forgot a couple of those!  Dr. Strangelove and most of the Christopher Guest movies (starting with the Tap!) would get my vote too.  Godfather I and II were great, but III, well, I shut it off about a half hour in and haven't forced myself to endure the whole thing yet.

Office Space, forgot about that one.  Yes, I am one of those sumb****es prone to quote that movie randomly.  I formally apologize to society at large for the failing.  Oh and Zoolander, one of the few movies of that set (Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller) I still quite like.

Definitely will have to see "Dead Man." I like most anything J. Depp is in with the exception of Sweeney Todd. A Musical!? Please...  :P

I used to laugh my but off as a kid at Terrence Hill and Bud Spencer in the "Trinity" films. Hilarious.

High Plains Drifter has always prompted me to think about who or what he was. Avenging spirit returned to earth? He made everyone pay... one of those movies that makes you think- much like Lost in Translation.

If they HAVE to do it, I think Tim Burton would be my choice to make it.

A remake of True Grit (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1403865/) is coming out on 12/22/10, with Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn. Jeff Bridges is certainly no John Wayne.

Ehhhh... I would cry foul, True Grit is one of my all time favs, but it is a Coen Brothers movie so there is hope. The Coen brothers have about 3 or 4 in my top ten list.

I think it isn't a remake of the movie but inspired by the same book. At least that was what I gathered from the Larry King interview with Jeff Bridges last week.

You have to start Dark Side of the Moon just as the yellow brick road start to change to color.  From there on the music tracks pretty close to action in the movie.

Isn't there a thing (urban myth?) about starting Pink Floyd'sDark Side of the Moon and the Wizard of Oz at the same time?

You have to start Dark Side of the Moon just as the yellow brick road start to change to color.  From there on the music tracks pretty close to action in the movie.

I havn't tried it at that point but I have tried it with the MGM lions third roar and that worked pretty well. (Not all versions have three roars though you have to find an older version, probably on VHS)

Noticed "Wizard of Oz" mentioned at least once.  Anybody seen that they want to do a remake?  How awful will that be...

If they HAVE to do it, I think Tim Burton would be my choice to make it.

A remake of True Grit (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1403865/) is coming out on 12/22/10, with Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn. Jeff Bridges is certainly no John Wayne.

Ehhhh... I would cry foul, True Grit is one of my all time favs, but it is a Coen Brothers movie so there is hope. The Coen brothers have about 3 or 4 in my top ten list.

I think it isn't a remake of the movie but inspired by the same book. At least that was what I gathered from the Larry King interview with Jeff Bridges last week.

This movie will be awesome. It is the Cohen Brothers. I heard they are also making another western simultaneously.

You can watch Dead Man on youtube in parts. From what I understand, Jim Jarmusch allows it.

Neil Young's sound track may be the best part.

I've read the books and liked them, but I haven't seen the movies.  I recently read the first two books to my kids - we started on book three, but they thought that was too scary so we stopped.  We're reading the Percy Jackson books now, and might pickup Harry Potter again in a year or so and see how it goes.  They're big fans. :)

When my son was 2 (he's 11 now) a friend gave us Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on VHS.  He loves that movie and watched over and over as young'uns like to do.  Every time it got to the part were Voldemort was drinking the unicorn blood he would go, "Daddy it's the scary part!" and wrap his arms and legs around me in a bear hug and bury his face in my neck until Voldemort flew away.  Of course I would watch, and being a big fan of F&SF became hooked on Harry Potter.

I agreed to go with my wife and son to see HP & TDH I on Friday night.  I am soooooo looking forward to sitting in the dark with hundreds of strangers coughing and sneezing all around me...  :P

The Lightning Thief movie was disappointing.

My kids do that with books now, but it's more Magic Schoolbus and Secrets of Droon.  And not so much the flashlight, I loved to read in bed at night as a kid, so I gave them lights that mount on their headboards and let them read as much as they want.  Pick your battles - that was one my parents never won, and I'm not willing to fight it :)

His more serious efforts like Spanglish impressed me.

Which leads me to the the John Tuturro. I've always considered him more of a serious type of actor. His acting in Miller's Crossing was amazing. He's shown up in several of Sandler's movies and not much else...

Toshiro Mifune is one of my favorite actors.  Will have to seek that one out!  For some reason I find myself inextricably favoring war movies, and comedies.  Somehow that puts Dr. Strangelove over the top!  But other great war movies (aside my earlier mention of the South African duo of Zulu and Breaker Morant) are The Great Escape, and Patton.  Das Boot is the sort of war movie I could watch only once (indeed, maybe I have only once!) but never quite shake loose.  Gallipoli is a good one.

I beg to differ... It was the dentist "Painless" who was in the coffin.  He wanted to commit suicide because he lost the "lead from his pencil"  so he took the "Black Capsule."  The black capsule was not real.

The nurse, Lt. Dish, put the lead back in Painless' pencil and all was right in the world again.

I always liked the irony that the song sung while Painless tried to commit suicide is titled Suicide is Painless.

He ends up on a corner under the el, where he runs into the Indian secret service agent, which is about three doors down from the building that serves as Mickeys boxing gym from the Rocky films.

I almost got to meet Stalone but it turned out to be his stunt double.

12 Monkeys filmed scenes right there too.

MAn, I am in movie central.  :D

Awesome movie, almost made my top three western movies list, maybe not actually a western but it is to me. I love this movie, its one of the top one hundred movies ever made. and its near the top of that list. Sam Pekinpah was one of the best directors for sure.

I like the new one, particularly how the opening channels the original.  Gave me goosebumps the first time I saw it.

The dynamic between McGarrett and Dano is different in this one, more like a buddy cop thing than a sensei-kohai from the original.  The SciFi lover in me likes the casting of Daniel Dae Kim (and his shotgun) and Grace Park as the rest of the crew.

My only boeuf is the way they mix the sound.  The background music and noise drowns out the dialog.  I have to shut off the surround channels to be able to understand what they're saying.

Anybody remember the movie game thread from the last forum? The one where we were giving movie lines and another person would indicate that they knew the film by giving another line? That was fun cause the movie would stay in play through out the thread. I remember some of them took several lines till I got them. What fun!!!

Well Bob, I built the chair that Bruce Willis sits on that lifts him up to the TV ball. I also helped build the tv ball and crane truss for the TV ball. I worked on the cages in the prison he is in in the future. Some other things, Im tring to remember, some of the mechanical for the time machine. A bunch of other odds and ends. I never worked on any of the locations for that movie but I really wanted to. I wasn't credited either but the guy I worked for was. Paul Williams. Back then I worked in the local scenery shops, worked on a few movies and TV shows.

Well here's another film for my "top ten" list.  "Jiri Barta: Labyrinth of Darkness."  It's a collection of 7 animated shorts created between 1978-1989 by Jiri Barta.  Three of the seven (Club of the Laid Off, 1989; The Last Theft, 1987; The Pied Piper of Hamelin, 1985) were incredible and the others were amusing enough to keep watching.

The fluidity of this one is great.  Has a surprising natural quality to it. 

I still love Nick Park's stuff, though.  Wallace and Gromit, et al.  Great fun, clever writing, nicely British sort of thing.  Cap, you should check out the somewhat child-centered "Shaun the Sheep" for your little one.  Our two year old loves it, yes, but I can't help watching it and laughing at it.  Makes a nice change from that goddamned Dora the firkin Explorer.

Wow.  Ok, Ivo Caprino, don't know him but he's from the land of Norwega (i.e. he’s Norwegian) so his stuff is surely worth watching.  Tutli-Putli was good; I will have to learn more about these guys as well.   Jan Svankmajer is good, I’ve only watched Alice and hope to see “Dimensions of Dialogue” and “Scenes from the Surreal” soon.  Only heard about the Brothers Quay, I think I have a collection of their stuff in my Netflix queue.  So far, aside from the Disney style stuff like Wallace & Gromit, 9, Coraline and Tim Burton stuff, I’ve seen the following, Waking life, Harvey Krumpet, Mary and Max, $9.99, The Piano Tuner of Earthquakes (hey, I have seen two Brothers Quay films apparently they did the Frida animation too), Waltz with Bashir, Labyrinth of Darkness.  Pretty cool stuff, I’m always looking for more.

Ok Jack, I would agree that Kubrick was brilliant, good soundtrack too.  I think I like the thriller style movie (similar to the shining) better than what most folks think of as horror.  I won't be watching SAW XXIV.  Here are a couple thriller/horror movies that I've seen lately.

1.  The devil's backbone
2.  The Broken (amusing thriller)
3.  Don't look back (amusing thriller)
4.  Let the Right One In (interesting take on vampires, USE the subtitles the dubbing is terrible)
5.  Antichrist (speaking of horror, this movie contains Willem DaFoe nudity) disturbing flick for sure, well shot/acted
6.  Oldboy (horror)
7.  The Taste of Tea (as not horror as you can get, Japanese flick)

Amen Broither!  The first True Grit is in my top five all-time favs.  I said the same thing.  Then I saw it is a Coen Brothers movie (staring The Dude no less). Now Jeff Bridges is no John Wayne, but hey, Barry Pepper as "Lucky" Ned Pepper... That's a casting coup, no doubt.

I absolutely get the heeby jeebies sitting in a dark room full of sneezing and coughing strangers, so seeing it at the theater for nine bucks ain't gonna happen.  But just think... True Grit done No Country For Old Men style.  That's definetly worth a look.

I had forgotten what a great movie The Black Stallion (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4iBp8Q2SGI) is.  I had never seen Boys' Town before.  Man I really enjoy Christmas and watching classic movies with family!

Amen Broither!  The first True Grit is in my top five all-time favs.  I said the same thing.  Then I saw it is a Coen Brothers movie (staring The Dude no less). Now Jeff Bridges is no John Wayne, but hey, Barry Pepper as "Lucky" Ned Pepper... That's a casting coup, no doubt.

I absolutely get the heeby jeebies sitting in a dark room full of sneezing and coughing strangers, so seeing it at the theater for nine bucks ain't gonna happen.  But just think... True Grit done No Country For Old Men style.  That's definetly worth a look.
+1 Though True Grit isn't in my top five, I loved it. The Coen bros are definitely tops. I heard they were remaking it but didn't know who was doing it until I went to a Big Lebowski party a friend hosts every year and we were talking about True Grit. The Coen bros should put their own slant on a classic.

I was surprised to hear that the Coens were making a remake. Im pretty sure it will be good. I dont have to see it on the big screen though.

I also heard from an insider that they are making another western too. Its being closely guarded. Im also looking forward to The Yiddish Policeman's Union. That one should be interesting.

There are so many movies that could use a remake. Not sure why they pic the classics. It is awful ballsy and most of the time just plain awful.

What about a remake of Plan Nine From Outer Space? Aliens and zombies? Sounds like a winning formula to me.

Or how bout Soilent Green? or West World? They destroyed Omega Man though.

The Valley of the Gwangi? That could be a tripped out remake.

There could be only one director for these remakes too....ME.

I would love to see Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End made into a movie.  It is my favorite SF story. There will be those who would think that the opening scene is a rip-off of Independece Day, when just the opposite is true.

Another fav F&SF series of books that would make awesome movies; Robert Silverberg's "Majipoor" series.

Tubercle has a good sense of humor and likes to laugh. Occasionally he likes to guffaw to the point where he starts crying and gagging.

I thoroughly enjoyed Ken Burns The Civil War last week on PBS. Coincided with the two recent anniversaries- start and finish are respectively April 12th and 9th.

It's digitally remastered and absolutely stunning in HD. The faces in the daguerreotypes are hauntingly familiar: those of present day Americans.

A lot to absorb so I hope they run it again.

Puna, excellent movie choice. My wife has trouble getting through the first 30 minutes or so when it's really gross & violent, but after that she loves it. Surely you've seen Shaun of the Dead? The ultimate zomromcom, even better than Zombieland.

Ah and one more for you: Black Sheep. New Zealand Sheep-based Zombie film:
On a quiet New Zealand ranch, a genetic experiment has gone horribly wrong, transforming a calm flock of sheep into killers hungry for human blood in this outrageous comic gore-fest. Those bitten become ravenous were-sheep. As the body count rises, a desperate handful of outnumbered survivors take a last stand against the ovine onslaught. Who will live, and who will be the next victim of the vicious killer sheep?

I invested in a really nice home theater system so I wouldn't have to sit in a room full of annoying people. I can drink all the beer I want while watching, and pause when I go to the bathroom.

Some of my favorite movies are;
Independence Day for sci fi
The Expendables for action
Blast from the Past for Comedy

I really like MOST of the super hero movies. Particularly the first Iron Man.
The last Superman movie sucked

For classics I like the 1953 version of War of the Worlds. Independence day was really just a modernized version of that. And very well done. The Tom Cruise version absolutely sucked

I do like the Jurassic Park movies

Mostly I like movies that really light up my big plasma tv and challenge my surround system  ;D

I just got to see Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds". The dude's a genius. I will have to watch this several more times to soak up all the little bits!

And true to form for a QT flick just about everybody gets killed suddenly and very quickly except the lovely von Hammersmark. And I wasn't expecting all the twists this film had.

From the same guys that made Shaun of the Dead.

I was surprised how good this movie was.  I love Tarantino's movies...well except Jackie Brown, based off Rum Punch by Elmore Leonard whose books seem like they would be an ideal fit to be directed by Tarantino, was a disappointment to me....and I was still surprised how good this movie was.
