still nobody's bitch
What about animated films? I would definitely put Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmaron on that list, plus Chicken Run and Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Wererabbit
THE BLUES BROTHERS is a good call. I'll put that on the revised list (which I'll post here in another day or two)Hmmmm, you know this list is giving me the urge to buy and watch more movies right now. heh.
You put TROPIC THUNDER up there already I see. I might be a little hesitant yet, but I think I need to see it again. It's good, real good.
One suggestion toward your musical list which I consider a staple: THE BLUES BROTHERS. Some of the best music I've ever heard created for a motion picture, a story you're more than willing to become invested in, and many appearances by some of the greatest voices in music.
The list I have the biggest quarrels with is your sci-fi/horror list. I don't see any of the greater classic films such as HALLOWEEN, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, DAWN OF THE DEAD, THE THING, or even any of the EVIL DEAD series. Even SHAUN OF THE DEAD deserves a place up there.
I do see that you have FREQUENCY and THE CORE up there... Really? Actually (and you're probably going to scold me for this) but I'm not the biggest fan of BLADE RUNNER either. I haven't seen AI or HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL yet, but I do need to see LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT. I would recommend it, but I haven't seen it yet.
Here's where I commit suicide: I've seen CASABLANCA maybe three times and I still don't see what's so great about it. I think TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT is a far better movie.I see one more glaring omission - Casablanca.
Also, I would defnitely drop Godfather III. That piece of crap only gets worse with time. Number One on the list of Movies That Should Never Have Been Made.
Everyone should definitely see Arsenic and Old Lace at least once in their lifetime. It's hilarious - Peter Lorre at his absolute best.
WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY was the original version with Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka. And I consider far superior to the Tim Burton remake. Which is good, mind you but it just didn't turn my crank like the original.Charlie was the original movie - the great movie. Willy was the new one with Johnny Depp - the awful movie.
I actually thought that was the only remake in history that was better than the originalWILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY was the original version with Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka. And I consider far superior to the Tim Burton remake. Which is good, mind you but it just didn't turn my crank like the original.
HOOSIERS, RUDY, ABOVE THE RIM and PRIDE OF THE YANKEES I've never seen. But I'm willing to add PRIDE OF THE YANKEES as I've heard about this movie since I was a kid. There's really no reason for me not to have seen it, though. Turner Classic Movies airs it pretty regular.Just wondering if your going to comment on my Sports movies list that I've added. I just want to know your opinions on the movies I listed. Which in my opinion belong on your list.
Shit yeah, you're indeed right. I should have looked it up to make sure before I said it...WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY was the original version with Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka. And I consider far superior to the Tim Burton remake. Which is good, mind you but it just didn't turn my crank like the original.
