Your Favorite Movie

Sat Oct 24, 2020 6:35 am

Looking through Non-Av is just so negative these days so I wanted to make another fun thread. I made a thread a couple of weeks ago about your favorite albums (viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1451255&hilit=album) and there were so many interesting tastes there (feel free to keep posting in that thread)! So this time it's movie edition! Let's add a little twist though and try to limit ourselves to just one movie with maybe some details on why you love it.

I'd say my one film would be Blade Runner 2049 (yes, the sequel over the original). I frequently go back to that film and I genuinely think it's one of the (if not the) best sequels of all time. To revisit a story over 30 years later and stay true to its core while still being innovative and fresh was a massive challenge but they pulled it off flawlessly. Amazing cinematography and score as well and I think modern technology really allowed them to go all out in creating a futuristic world (IMAX felt like being on another planet). And if you watch it enough times you notice smaller details that play a much bigger part in driving overall themes in the film - most prominently for me the symbolism of the colors used in the film and the themes they represent.

Your Favorite Movie

Sat Oct 24, 2020 7:16 am

Frozen 2 or Alladin...

Disney know what they are doing. I have a 4 year old daughter and we can sing along to the songs on a rainy day whilst watching a nice fantasy film that has drama, fun, action, a horse made of water (why not eh?). Good times are had watching Disney films and frozen 2 and Alladin are good Disney films.

As for films for grown ups (heads out of gutters please) I’d have to honestly say anything with Tom hanks, I have yet to see a bad film with him in although nothing quite tops the life of brian yet, you can’t beat mocking people who take themselves too seriously.

I don't have an absolute favourite movie, but I do have several that I like enough that I repeat it quite often. For example the Ocean's Trilogy, and yes I even like Ocean's 12. As a matter of fact I don't understand why it's criticised, I actually liked the plot twist.

I also like a few Richard Curtis classics like Notting Hill and Love, Actually for its sappiness.

Ron Fricke's Samsara. I watched it for the umpteenth time last weekend. Timeless, and a feast for the eyes. Perfect lockdown entertainment to lose yourself in for 1h 39m. No dialogue either. His Baracka is almost as good. Given the 19 years between the two films, a follow-up should arrive this decade. :pray:

Same here, I think the Ocean's Trilogy is highly underrated, the cast just works together so well.

I don't really have a favourite movie, but my top picks that I can just watch over and over again are:

- Goodfellas
- Casino
- The Irishman
- In The Name of The Father
- Better Off Dead
- The Goonies
- Star Wars (Original Trilogy)
- Back to The Future Trilogy
- Office Space
- Fury
- Pulp Fiction
- Guardians of The Galaxy 1&2

Impossible to have a favorite with so much quality out there, however right up there would be The Producers by Mel Brooks. If I am feeling down that one always cheers me up and Spring Time for Hitler and Germany, Wow! :rotfl:

Hard to come up with just one. It would be a lot easier by genre. I tend to like comedies and movies with some comedic elements but there are some gut-punchers in the list as well.

- Some Like It Hot
- Forrest Gump
- Apollo 13
- North by Northwest
- The Breakfast Club
- The Godfather
- My Cousin Vinny
- Life Is Beautiful

Pretty easy one for me
Le Mans
Sure it could have used maybe a bit more dialogue and the human story could have used some more flushing out but, the driving scenes are the best put to film and the characterization of the men who go out there just to be faster than anyone else is top notch. Movie has some of my favorite quotes of all time too.

True, assuming you can find a streaming service that carries the movies you want to see. If you like mainstream, (relatively) recently released films or widely recognized classics, you're golden, but if you have more obscure tastes then DVDs may be the only way to go.

The Silence of the Lambs. Phenomenal acting, phenomenal storytelling, and I am a fan of the unsettling nature of the plot that tells a horror-like story without supernatural elements (which for some reason I’ve never really found interesting).

Black Swan is a close second for the same reasons.

My favorite meaningful movies:
-"My Führer – The Really Truest Truth about Adolf Hitler" for mockery of the incapacity of liberals to accept that there is evil and act accordingly.
-"Extreme measures" with Hugh Grant deals with ethics of responsibility versus ethics of ultimate end.
-"Back to the future" is lovely. It was probably more meaningful when it was published and is still meaningful for children of charismatic Christians.
-Stephen Spielberg's "Munich" shows how political conflict and violence affects the private lives.
-Oliver Stone's "Platoon" teaches one about sadism and other dark sides of human nature. Can murder be moral?
-Clint Eastwood's "The bridges of Madison County" for it's moral dilemma value.
-Ridley Scott's "Kingdom of heaven" is a must see for religious fundamentalists.
"Invictus" about Nelson Mandela
-The movie "Gandhi" is very touching. However from a historical perspective it's too black and white. I fluctuate between admiration and criticism for Gandhi. That movie fits the admiration part.
-A bit outdated, but "The day after" is something to think about.
-"The beauty and the beast" of 2017 for its lesson in psychopathy.
- "The distinguished gentleman" with Eddy Murphy, for insight in politics.
-"Coraline" for its message how friendly people have it necessary.
-"The passion of the Christ". I don't feel like watching the movie because of its cruelty, but I felt touched when I saw it.
-"Matrix", since humans can only grasp a part of reality and prefer not to see a lot of things.


Other good movies:
The Thomas Crown affair (I haven't seen the 1968 original)
Bean
Shooter
Gremlins
Trading places
ET
True romance
Total recal
Shrek
Ice Age
Big Friendly Giant (BFG)
The pianist
Angry birds
Red October with James Connery
Cross of Iron
Desperado
From dusk till dawn
Body of lies
Black Hawk Down
Blood Diamond
The Fugitive
Falling down
Wall Street
The Big Lebowski
Contagion
The Truman Show
The Mask

German movies:
Indien (actually an Austrian movie)
Man spricht deutsh (Gerhard Polt is known as Comedian. I consider him a sociologist)
The never ending story
Das Boot
Kai Rabe gegen die Vatikankiller
Rossini
Der bewegte Mann

I like the vulgar humour of Adam Sandler. "Bad grandpa" from Jackass is even better. Then there are Peter Jackson's "Bad taste" and "Braindead".
Add the German movies of Tom Gerhard "Ballermann 6" and "Voll normaaal".

Dinero was so convincing as Travis Bickle that it was like he became the character. One of the greatest travesties in the history of the Oscars is that he didn't win best actor. But I think it might have been the same years a Cuckoo's Nest and Nicholson played the role of his life in that one.

Most my favourites are already mentioned.

Two that are missing are Jurassic Park and Dredd (2012 version).

Nothing mentioned yet from the James Bond franchise? I'll nominate Casino Royale.
Another franchise surprisingly missing: Marvel! I love Iron Man 1, Thor Ragnarok and the Infinity War/Endgame double bill.

Not my favourite, but noone mentioned lord of the rings? I find it a tad long winded, but can't deny it's beautifully made.

Return of the King got all the awards, but Fellowship was the best one, I think. Most focused with the least padding, and a killer soundtrack (though the other two have their moments there also, particularly that gorgeous strings bit that plays at Edoras in the Two Towers.)

My man! I don't know if it's my favorite of all time, but having been to Le Mans myself several times, it captures the atmosphere of the place and the event perfectly, and the racing footage is very hard to top. Sometimes I'll put it on just for the start/opening lap scene.

I just realized that somehow I didn't answer the question despite posting in this already.

Mine is The Hunt for Red October. Easily my favorite movie ever. I've watched it hundreds of times.

In general, I'm a big movie buff, so I have a gigantic movie collection and have many that I love. Could spend tons of time talking about various movies. Lots of good ones mentioned in this thread so far. Some very random ones I've not seen mentioned already are:

The Blues Brothers (1980; Best musical ensemble ever)
It's a Gift (1934; W.C. Fields classic)
Head Office (1985; Best movie about the corporate environment ever)
Kiki's Delivery Service (1989; Okay, this is a cop-out; basically any Hayao Miyazaki film can be listed)
Stranger than Fiction (2006; Will Ferrell can do "serious" comedy, too)
Restoring Penn State's transportation heritage...

Most of my favorites have already been listed, but I haven't yet seen The Color of Money mentioned. Paul Newman won an Academy Award for Best Actor.

The 2005 Munich movie with Eric Bana and Daniel Craig is a masterpiece. Worth every second of watching.
