Been trying to wrap my head around my 10 favourite films, since it came up in chat on the hangout!

 

I've yet to decide on 10, but here are my favourite 9 (in random order)

 

1: The Darjeeling limited  About Time

2: 500 days of summer

3: Mr. Nobody

4: Corpse Bride

5: Lost in translation

6: Good bye Lenin  Seven Psycopaths

7: Big Fish

8: Stardust 

9: V for Vendetta

10: ZOMBIELAND (thank you Mellute)

 

Edit: 

 

Good Bye Lenin HAD to be replaced with Seven Psycopaths

 

 

..

 

What are yours?

My one eye is closed so I can keep an eye on myself. The other eye remains cracked open so I can keep an eye on you. For you are beautiful and someone must hold a space for you to shine and live in complete freedom when you will not see. What this means in literal context is this: Each of my two eyes are looking 'at you' and 'for you'. – Dustin Strong

Got to love IPB filters. :D

Anything by Hayao Miyazaki. 

 

My dad would always have a new movie of his when me and my sister came up to visit.

 

Can't think of anything else on the stop

Hmm.. Tough to pick a top 10 for me.. But here we go, in no particular order:

 

Across the Universe

Beauty and the Beast

500 Days of Summer

50 First Dates

Ever After

Easy A (mostly because this is a satire on my hometown, filmed in my hometown.  And the idea of Lisa Kudrow as a counselor at my high school is entertaining to me.)

A Clockwork Orange

Death Proof

Natural Born Killers

Pulp Fiction

 

Haha, first half happy and romantic, second half gritty and dark :P...

 

I'm a big fan of Quentin Tarantino films if you couldn't tell, which I would say the ones listed could be interchangeable with other films of his, particularly Inglorious Bastards, Kill Bill, and True Romance..

I cant pick favorites. But I did like the Avengers movie. One of my favorite movie moments is the end of Inception, it felt like that feeling you get when you just wake up, or when you get out of the pool and you're a bit hard of breathing. (It might just be my asthma) I also really liked It's a Wonderful Life, even when it's not Christmas time. :P I recently watched The Road to The Open, it was pretty good, even though you could tell it was made by a lesser known company. The Ultimate Gift, or The Ultimate Life were both really great too. Or the ever so popular among my friends: The Princes's Bride. So many good laughs from that one. :D

 

I've just seen so many good movies that it's hard to choose favorites.

Tenlb - I have a lot of respect for the work of Kinji Fukasaku despite not liking shaky camera stuff...,  I just couldn't find any room in my 10 for any Asian... shame on me!

Never made a top ten list before, but Primer would be in there - its a great, low budget sci fi movie.

Zac mentioned Ghibli, my favourite from there would have to be Porco Rosso

I really loved Hot Fuzz, its a very funny movie.

I think Inception was pulled off really well too, even if it wasn't terribly original.

2001: A space odyssey

 

That's 5 off the top of my head.

Any movie by Quentin Tarantino pretty much is on my list.

Battle Royale

One Missed Call (Japanese version)

District B13 (Brick Mansion's is a remake of this movie)

 

I like mostly a lot of foreign films as well as the big Superhero movies. I hate Hollywood remakes of most foreign movies though.

I agree that most foreign films dont translate well into american cinema, especially works from asia, and i think a lot of it has to do with the cultural difference/language barrier.

 

Oldboy is a prime example of this, as the movie is basically a remake per scene (copycat) rather than really trying to evoke the same type of emotion and cultural relevance you got from the original.

I just watched Captain America 2 yesterday, it was pretty good. Some people would say it was better than the Avengers... but I wouldn't say that. I think I liked the first one better, but the second one was a close "second". :P
