Oh Rosleen, V for Vendetta is definitely on my top. You know, I never have actually taken the time to figure out 10 movies that I've liked.... lets see..... Well, I guess for me it comes in waves, I like movies for a time and then I move on when I've over-watched them one too many times haha XD . I do however tend to like comedies and action/asian flicks. Unbreakable, OngBak the Thai Warrior, House of Flying Daggers, the Last Samurai, all those tend to be things I like and watch again from time to time. 

 

I just finished watching 22 Jump Street the other week, it was Hilarious! I recommend the movie to anyone looking for a movie that makes your face hurt from smiling  :jack_o_lantern_32px:

Its so hard to make a list... Movies that let me feel things without risk is a big plus. Here some of my favorites in different categories.t

 

1. Shawshank redemption (seen it mention alot, but its unmatched).

2. Chocolate (for the romance and food).

3. Ratatouille(cartoon)

4. The Snowpiercer (post apocalyptic)

5. The Cloud Atlas (I don't know what genre it is, but its one of those movies where you follow several persons, and they are in some way connected).

 

And i am sure i could debate 5-10 other great movies to be on my top list. :) Thanks for reviving this one Ros, I must have missed it, when scanning the old uns'

I don't really have much of a list, not really much of a movie person. However, I watched The Grey last night and it is by far my favorite movie so far.

V for Vendetta

V for Vendetta


V for Vendetta has that rare quality in that it was simultaneously a very good movie and a completely crap adaptation of a truly seminal and brilliant graphic novel (the author of the graphical novel removed his name from the movie credits, so yeah). Say the word and I will e-mail anyone a digital backup of the original. It's a moderate dense read but it delivers.

I've read it, and I vastly prefer the film ;)

It's hard to make a top ten of movies. I tend to either like a movie or dislike it. Adventure, animation (no anime) and fantasy usually work quite well with me.

 

?) Lord of the Rings / the Hobbit

?) Indiana Jones (also prefer 'the Last Crusade' over the others)

?) Brave

?) Gladiator

?) The hurt locker

?) Titanic

?) Wizard of Oz, the great and powerful

?) Cars/Panes

?) The Lone Ranger

?) Harry Potter

 

And loads more.

It is amazing what a person's favourite movies can reveal about him or her. I read through everybody's list so far and I saw some that would be on my top 10 and then again, some that I wouldn't put in my top 100 :)

 

Generally my favourite movies are the types that make us feel, think, or reflect after the movie is done. Movies that speak to the human condition also interest me, hence my love of the Star Trek TV series. You will note, however, that none of the Star Trek movies made my list though hah. Ok here is my list:

 

1. Schindler's List 1993

2. Shawshank Redemption 1994

3. Crash 2004

4. Amadeus 1984

5. The Pursuit of Happyness 2006

6. Full Metal Jacket 1987

7. Good Will Hunting 1997

8. American History X 1998

9. Forrest Gump 1994

10. The Matrix 1999

4. Amadeus 1984

 

Raymadin,

 

You have my vote. Amadeus is the only movie in my collection practically that I can't get rid of.

 

Don't listen to what anyone else sais....who drinks tea! Who needs tea....teaaaa.....we like parties! Don't we!

 

.....And I didn't know that 'music' like that was possible!.....My father hasn't exactly given us 'consent' to get married...but in my mind...why don't we just have '3' heads? ....I ask...."Hare Zumer! But the man's a fool! A total mediocrity!"......And you expect them to judge my work! Well....I won't"

 

LOL just remembering some quotes. ;)

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

Those are some memorable quotes InvisibleCat007 :)

Ahh yes Amadeus :) I think I actually know every line from that movie. I recognize all those quotes!!

 

Oh this might interest you: you know how the character of Emperor Joseph II says "well . . . there it is!" and also "mm hmm"

Well that somehow became things I started to say too lol. I still do the "mm hmm" thing even today.

 

That was the film that got me interested into classical music and opera. Since seeing that movie, I have been to two operas: The Magic Flute and Don Giovanni. I enjoyed Don Giovanni much more though.

 

What is your favourite scene from that movie? Mine is the Commendatore scene

ha ha h This is so fun!

 

Are you a 'clone' of me by chance? I believe in 'clones'. I see clones of celebrities all the time. ;).....I can't say I have been to a Mozart opera...but have listened to audio most my life. Probably the only music that brings tears to my eyes. Yes Magic Flute has to be my favorite. I have them all on CD. However it is still a great ambition of seeing them live.

 

Favorite scene.....it's hard to pick one. This one was always one of my favorites:

Oh yes that dog scene haha. Wow you found a very good quality link too. The costumes look amazing in that high def.

 

I really need to re-watch the movie again in better quality. I think i saw it on VHS ....

 

I am not sure if I'm a clone of you. Highly doubt that. I do like cats too though. But still doubtful :P

I ask because it calls something deep in my heart. It reminds me of what I am.

 

* A  mind........that recognizing nothing but ......beauty. They call it 'genius'... but that is insulting.
