    Default Favorite Movies

    I don't know that I have a favorite movie, but if I had to choose it might be Crash. if you havent seen it, do so. One of the most powerful things I have ever seen.

    Throne of Blood, by Akira Kurosawa. Made before all the fancy special effects, but still the best retelling of Macbeth that I have ever seen.

    hmm, I'm actually not a huge kurosawa fan. His film technique is remarkable, though.

    Star Wars!!! The first 3 films were the best films ever made!!!!!! Im kind of a Star Wars fan boy if you havent noticed

    <.<

    The new films were ok but i didnt like all the CG. I dont like alot of CG in movies and thats pretty much all of the new starwars was. i also dont like how they showed Anakin Skywalkers evolution to Darth Vader, i felt they did a pretty clumsy job of showing the darkness inside him.

    My favorite movie would be "My Sassy Girl". It's a korean flick so I don't expect anyone here to be familiar with it. Then there's "Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children", since I'm a huge fan of the FF series and SquareSoft. I also like "The Last Samurai", since it was very realistic samurai action.

    Hmm, tough call. I loves my movies, but there's such a wide variety of genres, it's hard to compare some of them. I just posted in the Best Horror thread, and I have to say Hellraiser and Nightmare on Elm Street would be two of my all-time fave movies.
    Also, Donnie Darko, 2001: A Space Odyssey... um, can't think of others right now, but I'm sure I will.

    I saw all but the last part of Crash on the plane back to New Zealand, and loved it. The in-flight entertainment crapped out on me so I didn't see about the last 20 minutes, but I definitely intend to get it out once I live somewhere with a DVD player.

    And about Star Wars, that Episode 3.... I was enjoying myself until the entirely ridiculous ending. Darth awaking on his Frankenstein-esque plaque and crying "Nooooooooooo!!!". Seriously, what the Fuck was Lucas thinking? The whole cinema laughed. Also, Padme's decision to name her children. Aside from being incredibly contrived, it now ruins the movie series for moviegoers in future generations by letting us know right from the get-go that they are siblings. As if the whole Luke, You Are My Father thing being blown out of the water wasn't enough.

    The Labyrinth has always been my number one film but as a general rule I'm a Tim Burton nut. But I can't forget Battle Royale either.

    Cold Mountain pissed me off, I'm from that area, and none of that stuff really happened, it was pretty much the opposite, actually.
