Tell me what you love… (Part Three: Films)

This is almost impossible to do. I have seen a lot of films (there were times when I’d watch two new movies a day), and I have loved many of them. This is even worse than with books. Which is why I will cheat and make the list longer than usual.

This list is not in order of preference.

  1. Moonlight Mile (2002)
  2. Grosse Pointe Blank (1997)
  3. Last Night (1998)
  4. Almost Famous (2000)
  5. Unbreakable (2000)
  6. Land and Freedom (1995)
  7. The Matrix Reloaded & The Matrix Revolutions (2003)
  8. Dark City (1998)
  9. Sunshine (2007)
  10. Powwow Highway (1989)
  11. Terra (2007)
  12. La Hora Fria (2006)
  13. The Village (2004)
  14. Vanilla Sky (2001)
  15. Apocalypse Now (1979)
  16. Pitch Black (2000)
  17. Fool’s Gold (2008)
  18. Dead Man (1995)
  19. V for Vendetta (2005)
  20. They Live (1998)
  21. Bedazzled (2000)
  22. Donnie Darko (2001)
  23. The Boat That Rocked (2009)
  24. Black Dynamite (2009)
  25. Duck, You Sucker (1971)
  26. The Man Who Sued God (2001)
  27. Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) & Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991)
  28. Wit (2001)
  29. Requiem for a Dream (2000)
  30. Bloody Sunday (2002)
  31. The Mummy Returns (2001)
  32. K-Pax (2001)
  33. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)
  34. Mad City (1997)
  35. The Big Kahuna (1999)

Is this list representative? Perhaps. Is it complete? No, absolutely not. I will write a better, more detailed post on this subject when I find the time. But for now, if you haven’t watched any of these films, please do. You’re missing out.

  1. I still say you would love 9. You can find it on the Internet to watch- the 70-minute film, that is.

    Also, there’s one line late in the film that, as a fan of your games, made me smile because, “LOL unintentional references!” Now that you’ve read this, you’ll know what I’m talking about once you see it.

  2. I’d love to see it. I’ll get the DVD when it comes out.

    Never seen the first 3 on the list. Actually, never even heard of them.

    So, I don’t rank movies, so can only do that by broad genre:

    -Comedy: Wu Fu Xing
    -Drama: Oldboy
    -Fantasy/Scifi: LOTR
    -“War”: Apocalypse Now
    -Child movie: Ronja Rövarsdotter
    -Animation: Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi
    -Thriller: I don’t know if it qualifies, but Pulp Fiction
    -Action: From Dusk till Dawn
