I loved Juno, one of my favorites of last year. I also liked the The Prestige, which was so much better than The Illusionist, in my opinion. Also, nobody put Pirates of the Caribbean on their list? The first two were great. i am sam was another great movie. Ocean's Eleven hilarious; Hero was brilliant. One of my all time favorites was Chicago. A great, great movie.
I'm also surprised no one said The Departed. That was pretty good.

No for animation. /=

The Nightmare Before Christmas is near the top, I've probably watched it 30+ times. Fun stuff. I like all of the Classic Disney, like, a lot. Fox And the Hound, Aristocats, Mulan, Fantasia, Tarzan... yeah, I miss them sooooo. Ratatouille, Monster's Inc. are my favorite Pixar, and Shrek and Over the Hedge my favorite Dreamworks.

Default Re: Your All Time 5 Favourite Movies (Oh and least favourite)

Favourites:

- The Fly (Any version)
- Gremlins 2 (first one was good too, but the second was even better)
- Aliens
- Nightmare on elm street (bash the sequels all you want, the first one is classic)
- The Shining

Honourable mentions go to a clockwork orange, and any David Lynch filim because I love trippy shit. Also, David Cronenberg. I love Scanners and Videodrome and.... damn, I love Videodrome so much. Long live the new flesh! <3

Least favourites:

- High school musical whatever
- Knocked up... actually ANYTHING that has seth rogan in it, he's friggin' creepy, but I hate his character the most in this one
- Juno. I really, really hate this movie. I prefer the abridged script.
- any romantic comedy, it's definitely not my thing.
- any movie that relies purely on gross humour to get laughs, like Epic movie.

Too bad my local cinema always has a lot of noisy asshats in it so I can never enjoy any movie on a night out

I personally think we would need an entirely separate thread for James Bond.

GoldenEye and Tomorrow Never Dies were my favorite.

woah so many films I haven't seen
jesus I feel so left out now ;-;

my favourites:
  1. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
  2. Iron Man
  3. Hot Fuzz
  4. Shaun of the Dead
  5. Star Trek: First Contact
I don't really have any least favourite films due to the fact that the amount of films I've seen probably amounts to something under 30.

I've been wanting to watch Eraserhead for a long time now, but I am a bit scared of finding it too creepy. I saw part of the scene where the main character (SPOILER) cuts open the freaky baby's bandages to find out they're KEEPING HIS ORGANS IN AAAA and it was... word. Is the rest of the film in that vein?

And yeah I think we all enjoy a little intellectual fastfood now and then. I personally don't watch highly commercial movies very often but when I do I can find myself loving them (ie Hot Fuzz :v)

This is all IMO, so yeah. feel free to disagree, but (SPOILER'D BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO START A DEBATE):

(SPOILER) The most forced, unnatural dialog ever, terribly shoehorned pop-culture references at every turn (HEY FAMILY PLANNING CLINIC LADY! I'M TALKING ON A HAMBURGER PHONE! ISN'T THAT QUIRKY?! TICTACS THUNDERCATS HONEST TO BLOG LOLOLOL!), annoying smartass spoiled bitch of a main character, the fact that the only reason the guy is on the track team is because LOL GYM SHORTS R FUNNEH, almost complete lack of taking the very real issue of teen pregnancy seriously, annoying faux-indie music...I could go on and on about this movie, honestly.

Ocean's Eleven
Airplane!

These comments from the "High Octane Nightmare Fuel" page of tvtropes pretty much sum up my feelings:

(SPOILER for Eraserhead)
  • The intro to Eraserhead. That's not to say that the rest of the movie isn't nightmarish as well, mind you, but the simple sight of The Man In The Planet crouched motionless by the window, wrapped in shadows, and then twitching slightly, is probably the single most disconcerting thing in the universe.
  • Don't forget the artificial chickens served for dinner by Mary's parents.
    It is astonishing and absurd that Eraserhead has not been mentioned. The entire film is nightmare fuel. This troper was too frightened to stop watching, had nightmares for weeks (the first of which induced vomiting), and developed a phobia all because of this film. While most people probably did not react nearly as badly, it deserves mention.
  • This troper is a seasoned, surrealist, Silent Hill-loving bitch, but the last quarter reduced her to an endless stream of horrified obscenities. Scarier still are the mysteries surrounding the special effects. The rumor that the baby puppet is a modified cow fetus seems mostly debunked, but the opposite is true for another facet—it's been confirmed that the umbilical cords used in the film are not only real, but human. A crew member relates here how one landed on another crewman's shoe and he was so Squicked that they had to cease filming for several days.
  • To further cement the idea of how utterly horrifying this movie is to some people: This troper actually used to actively look for something that could scare him after he hit about 12. For years nothing inspired any degree of terror, with maybe a few reaching unsettling, but most just being thought of as nothing more than creepy. After 3 years, he saw Eraserhead. He could not stop shaking that night, slept with the lights on, had horrible nightmares for weeks, and to this day cannot look at pictures from the movie out of fear alone. Still, it was a good movie.
  • In heaven, everything is fine. In heaven, everything is fine. You've got your good things ... and you've got mine.
  • The above troper is a bad person. :(


Creepy stuff.

Definitely need to watch that.
Oh, in the line of 'films that are gross and creepy but good anyway' I'd have to say Salň o le 120 giornate di Sodoma (Salň or the 120 days of Sodom) is right up there too. Some parts made me feel quite ill (like when one of the guys (SPOILER) puts nails in a piece of cake and feeds it to his daughter, ugh) and the ending is fucking horrible but it is a very good film and a great metaphore for fascist Italy. The President still creeps me the hell out and the Duke is horrible, I think the least reprehensible of the characters (and he's still bloody awful) is the Bishop, if only for the fact that he's the only one of the foursome to have consensual sex with anyone.

Oh and even though I really like this film and watch even the creepy parts I nearly always skip the Circle of Shit because ew. Even when you know it's just marmalade and chocolate it's still disgusting.

I have actually heard about that film and heard bad(-ish) things about it. However, it sounded interesting to me. I dunno how I can track a copy down without using the internet, though.

It is absolutely vile but I strongly recommend it.

You can often find Pier Paolo Pasolini box sets and Salň is always included. Good luck on finding it, I went through a huge amount of trouble to get it.
