Favorite 15 Movies = ?

Recommended Posts

This question is one that is as older than Modern Times (1936) but will be continually asked for all eternity. Forgive me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think its been done here for a while. I tried to pick ones that truly engaged me and have--at least on some level--cinematic brilliance.

 

1. The Godfather (1972)

2. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)

3. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)

4. Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

5. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)

6. The Usual Suspects (1995)

7. Goodfellas (1990)

8. The Matrix (1999)

9. Life Is Beautiful (1997)

10. The Sting (1973)

11. Rear Window (1954)

12. Memento (2000)

13. Apocalypse Now (1979)

14. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

15. Forrest Gump (1994)

 

As I look over my selecties, they seem rather randomly passionate.

 

But so it goes.

Donnie Darko I'l never know what that was about

 

Illusionist so you liked it? would you suggest seeing it in the theater?

Oh yes Shawshank is a great film. I think it really should have won the Oscar, though I cant remember what it was up against that year.

 

Edit: I just looked it up. It was another one on my list--Forrest Gump.

Illusionist was probably the best movie I've seen in theatres this year. Couple that with the fact that I'm a big Edward Norton fan and you've got one hell of a movie.

 

Donnie Darko is about a kid in high school who has a giant evil rabbit for a friend and learns about time travel.

My American Cinema professor just explained the rating system to me:

 

G - the girl is snotty and immature

PG - no one gets the girl

PG13 - the good guy gets the girl

R - the bad guy gets the girl

NC17 - everyone gets the girl
