For me, it's either Dead Man's shoes or the green mile.
what is everyone else's favourite?
as i like different films when i'm in different moods.
it's like asking what your favourite song is.
mine's Boom shake shake the room by jazzy jeff and the fresh prince. It reminds me of a simpler time.
by Haddaway. For similar reasons. It's still being played quite widely in Belgium I found this weekend.
i remember you telling me it was on youtube well over a year ago :(
I'm still a child inside which means my girlfriend is a peadophile
probably either Blade Runner, Big Lebowski, Empire Strikes Back, Royal Tenenbaums, Spinal Tap or Requiem for a Dream.
all films i could watch again and again
we are ready to do you now
but i've decided it's in the mood for love now.
basically, wong kar wai is king.
I haven't reevaluated since then.
ghost in the shell. not a fan of anime but that film is so fucking good
Nnnnnnmmmmhhhhhmmmmm (spazzing out)
Sherry? Sherry. Sherry!
Man on the Moon
says in German "Do you speak English? SPITFIRE!"
the funniest film ever made and a grower that gets better each time OR Hedwig and the Angry Inch because it is sad, funny and uplifting OR disneys beauty and the beast for it is the greatest love story ever told
or Mysterious Skin or the Karate Kid or Robocop or Happiness or American Movie

I can barely remember the plot of two.
Bad Education? I didn't mean that, surely. 8/10 film at best. I suck. Replace it with back to the future. Thanks.
Probably only about 3 of my list would get 10/10.
That, and you know, Gael Garcia Bernal....
But we're talking top 100 films here! I've got to be cruel.
Your prescence has reminded me I haven't put Pather Panchali in there. That's all manner of wrong.
but I have to express surprise at Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
Also, no Stop or my Mom will Shoot?
And feel good about the world at Christmas. See also: 'It's a wonderful life'. But this has the added advantage of John Candy turning into a devil!
I'm just a big softy at heart.
I watched Seven Samurai for the first time a couple of nights ago, and I'd be inclined to agree.
but seven samurai is my favourite, yep.
box set at his uni. I'm so excited to work my way through them all.
Also - good that it's not in order, Blue Velvet should be much, much higher...
my favourite director. His non-samurai films are very underappreciated. And he's come up with the two best movie adaptations of Shakespeare plays.
But the following are all incredible in their own way:
Throne of Blood
The Hidden Fortress
That is probably my favourite film
brilliant stuff, just brilliant!
Happy Gilmore is a classic
one of his films i haven't hated
although good I hate it when people only like that film of his because its just a more serious version of the rest of his films
City Of God
Requiem For A Dream
Dead Man's Shoes
Evil Dead 2/3
Grosse Point Blank
Someone choosing Army of Darkness! I don't get why everyone seems to hate it.
It's got everything, violence, Oedipus style incest, vengeance, kidnap, etc. etc.

Saving Private Ryan
I'm sure I've missed so much.
I STILL haven't seen Bringing up baby.
I neaarly put Amores Perros, Midnight Cowboy and Three Colours Blue in mine.
Also, I cheated by counting Dekalog as one film instead of ten!
The films are expanded aren't they?
on the two they redid.
dekalog isnt really a film though...
Neither's the version of Das Boot I've got.
is it actually the same thing? i always thought it was some kind of spin off
do you mean the TV SERIES and not the film?
On vhs. It will be a sad day when they expire.
the thought of having to sit throught it always puts me off, maybe i should relax such prejudicial judgements...
and a short film about love.
The others are the same, I think.
And you get the expanded versions in the artifical eye releases anyway.
Cary Grant at his not-gay-thank-you-very-much best.
all of a sudden!'
for my money, Cary's at his best in His Girl Friday, which would be one of my favourites. Along with Chinatown, Vertigo, Magnolia and Dead Ringers.
I still refuse to believe he was gay though. See, when I build a time machine I have to go back and marry him.
That bothers me far too much.
Dead Man's Shoes
and others I'm forgetting now
Revenge of the psychotronic man
My neighbours the yamada's
