Youre welcome ;)
Fyi next week im gonna sit down and watch my entire top 10 and place them in the order of my favorite movies. I feel like I often switch opinion. One day I like Empire more than star wars another day it's star wars etc. I don't know if others feell the same way but making the final top 10 list will determine which of the ten films I like the most.

Hey man!

E.T was in my top 3 a month or so ago but since, I've rewatched it and it fell top about 10 on my chart. Then, i saw "Ikiru", "Charade" and "Rashomon" for the second time so, it has fallen down to about 20!

One thing you gotta know about my chart, movies never hang around in the same spot on my list. Constant changes (except for my #1 and #2 picks!)

I'm a huge fan of epic films. Some of my favorites include the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Titanic, Gladiator, Braveheart, and Lawrence of Arabia. How about you?

Thoughts on Jaws?

I also love the epic (it's probably my favorite film genre).

It's a little difficult, however, to determine what qualifies as an epic and what doesn't, so listing what my favorites are is a bit tough. I love all of the ones MoM cited, excluding Lawrence of Arabia (overrated, in my opinion). Master and Commander is another one I like a lot. Is The Good, the Bad and the Ugly an epic? I also love that flick.

You have any epic faves?

The reason for me asking is because I stumbled upon a truly great movie a year ago. It's called the Message (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074896/?ref_=nv_sr_5) and I think it is unrecognized quite a bit. It has a great plot and is a great adventure movie, great performances (esp. by Anthony Quinn) great score but though one big "flaw" if you like. I know you like movies and am happy to hear you like epics as well. The Message might not be your kind of movie (thinking on the theme) but I really hope you would give it a try someday.

btw love the 1 and 3 of the lord of rings trilogy (not a big fan of the second). Braveheart, Titanic and Gladiator I really like as well. LoA I have not watched but funny enough I planned on watching it tonight. Concerning Jaws I think it is a really good movie and I like it a lot. Truly an intense and exciting movie (I have it at 50). My biggest dislike it that is was boring around some parts around the second act, wasn't quite interresting.

And to Caesar goes pretty much the same thing about the movie The Message. I hope you also would give it a try someday since in my opinion it's hasn't been recognized a lot. Really liked Good, Bad and Ugly but I don't really see it as an epic in my opinion (http://www.dga.org/Craft/DGAQ/All-Articles/0309-Sept-2003/What-Makes-a-Film-an-Epic.aspx). Master and Commander is on my watchlist btw :)

I really see it as the most overrated movie of all time (along with rises). People judge me for liking it because Avengers is on my top spot, but other than Aaron Eckhart, Heath Ledger (especially him) and the Theme there is not really anything else for me to like about it. I like the movie but that is all. It angers me a bit to see it's #4 on IMDB.

The Avengers? I really like it! It wouldn't be in my Top 10 necessarily, but it was still a great time at the movies. A very satisfying and adventurous film. The writing is great, despite it's few faults it does what it sets out to do so perfectly that you can't really foul it. Especially since it's the first of it's kind in terms of superhero team-up movies. Oh, and Mark Ruffalo kicks ass as the Hulk. Super pumped for Avengers 2.

I'm also really pumped for Marvels new strategy when it comes to filmmaking. I love how they're getting these edgy autuers to do their movies now. Shane Black did a great job with Iron Man 3, I can't wait for the director of Super's take on Guardians of the Galaxy and the fact that Edgar Wright will be directing has made Ant-Man one of my most anticipated films of 2015. Thoughts?

Cannot wait for Avengers 2 as well! So excited to see Ultron, Scarlet Witch and Quicksliver. I love the MCU. Avengers I love (duh) iron man is fantastic and Cap the first avengers I enjoyed a lot despite all of its negative reviews. Im watching winter soldier this week and so excited! I think phase 2 will do a lot better than 1.

As for Ant-man and GOTG. I've read the comics and Ant-man didn't really say me anything. Only got really interested on the take of Hank Pym in Mighty Avengers. Friggin loved it. Im very excited to see their take on him and Scott Lang and especially how they'll handle his powers. As for GOTG I have mixed feelings about it. Didn't care for the characters in the comics (except for Groot (tree) and Rocket (raccon)) But you know nice to see them do something (probably) away from earth

also Im thinking of watching how to kill a mockingbird. What do you love about it?

I like 'epic' movies. My favourite would obviously be The Lord of the Rings. I enjoy Gladiator, Braveheart and also love Kurosawa's Ran. I haven't seen many (especially Lawrence of Arabia) and I'm planning to actually rewatch Seven Samurai which I am absolutely certain I'll enjoy more on a rewatch

Yeah, I'm not a massive comics guy, but I'm excited about Ant-Man more for Edgar Wright's involvement than anything else? Have you seen any of his other worm? I think he's a fantastic director!

To Kill a Mockingbird is perfect all across the board. It has amazing performances, a great script and excellent cinematography. I like it mainly because it was one of the first film I watched while I was starting to get jnto film as an art form (This was when I also watched Citizen Kane, Cool Hand Luke and 12 Angry Men) and I guess that film stuck woth me a bit more than the others. I'm thinking of moving it down a bit on my chart, though. An English teacher yammering on about it for the last two years has dampened my enthusiasm for it a bit. It's still a super-recommendation, though.

I'm not letting him change my opinion as much as I am just getting tired of it as a story, on paper or celluloid. He talks about it every week, but always in the most uninteresting, surface-level ways. It's just wearing me out on it is all.

Shawshank sure is a powerful film! One of my friends watched it recently for the first time, and it's his new favorite movie. I got him to watch Good Will Hunting and now the two are tied for his favorite. Any thoughts on Good Will Hunting? Have you seen it?

Yeah, people like Squaremaster and Rohocomics tend to piss me off quite a bit. I have no clue why they feel the need to focus so much on five or ten films for every single discussion they have. I assume that you like The Dark Knight films as Inception is in your top ten, yes?
But even so, comic book films don't dominate your chart. Nice variety. I personally like every Dark Knight film more than any of the Marvel films thus far (that's just my opinion I still really love IM3 and the Avengers) but I don't go on about it. In fact, I'd say that Marvels cinematic future is looking great, while DC's is looking . . . Pretty shitty, if they continue with the Man of Steel tone. Ugh.

My take on the MCU thus far:
Iron Man- I like it a fair bit, but it's more significant in film history than it is actually good. Like Ghostbusters or City Lights.
Hulk- I think Marvel should officially disown this one. Very forgettable.
Iron Man 2- stoinks!
Thor- not that great, but tolerable
Cap 1- haven't seen it, shockingly enough!
Avengers- fantastic
Iron Man 3- my favorite Marvel film. Delightful.
And Haven't seen the rest.

Tell me your final thoughts when you're finished Pulp Fiction, man! That's a great freakin' flick.

I love most things about Lawrence. It currently resides around the border of my top 50, making it a 4.5/5 film in my book. The cinematography is some of the best I've ever seen, the acting is outstanding, the characters compelling, the writing clever, everything.
As for what I dislike, I honestly can't think of anything! It is a bit jarring in the first 10 minutes perhaps, but re-watching the opening after knowing how the movie turns out makes it all the better. A lot of people complain about the length, but I thought it was fine. Long, but never ever boring. Overall, a fantastic film. Definitely recommend it.

I plan to watch a Clockwork Orange sometime this weekend, and many other Kubrick films as the weeks go by. I recently purchased a Blu-ray boxset of his that I'm really digging. Have you seen this? Do you like it?

If you're put off by Kubrick's psychological skull-fuckery I would recommend checking out Dr. Strangelove. It has all of Kubrick's great cinematography, performances and imagery but in the form of a funny political satire. It's currently my favorite out of the Kubricks I've seen. Peter Sellers and George C. Scott are both excellent in it. I see you haven't seen it, yet it isn't on your list of shame. I'm sure that's a glitch, yeah?

I think that Star Wars 1977 is overrated. I enjoy the movie quite a bit but the more and more I watch it, the least I like Mark Hamill's performance and the less I like the script, cinematography and direction. I would give it a 4/5 but it falls somewhere around #250 on my list. It's good but hardly the greatest film ever in my opinion.

I also think that TDKR is incredibly overrated, Avatar is overrated and Drive is overrated! Reasons for Avatar and Drive: they are visual masterpieces but lack relatable character and an engrossing story.

I enjoy TDKR but it is too full of flaws to be considered amazing as many have done so.

Hey, Pixar!

I dig 'em all, but Finding Nemo and Up are in my Top 20. When I first saw Nemo, my jaw was on the floor the entire time in awe. Later in life, as I've become a parent, the story resonates with me even more on an emotional level.

The first ten minutes of Up is cinema perfection, and I love the zany nuttiness of the rest of the film, anchored by a truly touching connection to Carl, who is a truly wonderful character.

The Avengers is so high up on my list because it made me act like a littl kid. Squirming in my chair, giddy with delight. Also, for a superhero film, it was so bloody funny. This is the movie that made the Hulk amazing!!

I really had no problems with it....except for now. I think them bringing back Coulsen takes the emotional punch out of that scene.

Guardians of the Galaxy, I'm super pumped for that. I think it's good that they're trying something different. Sure, I've liked the Marvel films so far, but they feel very similar in style. Guardians switches it up completely.

Days of Futrue Past should be good, Avengers 2, but I'm wary of Batman vs. Superman. I need to see some footage. Eisenberg better bring it as Luthor, because I was hoping it would be Cranston.

Oh, you won't get me insulted by your talk of The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises being overrated. That's your opinion, and you're allowed to have it. I don't get battles over the internet over movies, it's all subjective. Maybe a healthy debate, but that's it.

I thought Apocolypse Now was good, but felt too long. I thing it was the Redux version, though. I need to see it again, as it's probably been nearly ten years since I've seen it. If you do like it, you may like Come and See, another very bleak war film.

It's fine if you like Iron Man 2, but personally, I think it shows what happens when Marvel interferes: a mediocre film. I had forgotten Wright had written the script! If they don't change it, I may still be optimistic. I'm just over origins stories. Too many of them are the same. I guess we just wait and see. :)

I'll get back to you about Wright as well. :)

Where I'm staying in Sydney, there's a cinema just around the corner. I plan to see Neighbours (called Bad Neighbours in Australia), A Million Ways to Die in the West, Godzilla, and DOFOP. Supposed to be raining Sunday, so I might make that my movie day. :) So, I'll get back to you about the film as well. :)

I haven't had the best of luck in picking out movies this summer, but I've seen a few good ones. I absolutely loved Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (#26 on my Flickchart). That's my #1 movie for this year. I also liked Edge of Tomorrow and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

As far as older movies go, I enjoyed The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, Death Race 2000, and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.

How was 22 Jump Street? Is it better than the first movie?

Well, Ledger is from Perth, and started his career there.

I don't mind 3D, but only when they do it properly. What annoys me is they go on about piracy, then they're fine releasing a shitty 3D product thatmwe have to waste our money on. I assume you're American, yes? (sorry if you're not, don't mean anything by it) Well, for a ticket to 3D in Australia, I'm forking out $22-$24. So, when it's shitty, that annoys me.

However, the appeal isn't what it once was for me. I don't get the same wow moments that I got a few years ago.

Scandinavian? Cool. :) Awesome place to live?

I'm still not fully aware of your taste in films, so be aware of that when considering my recommendations.

The Raid 2- Watched twice in two days. The story flowed much better the second time, and the action is jaw dropping. Best to see the original if you do consider seeing this.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Godzilla

I also enjoyed Neighbours and Escape from Tomorrow.

Have you heard of Snowpiercer, and Under the Skin? Both are supposed to be amazing, but I have yet to see them. Just thought I'd let you know. :)

Okay, I'll share my thoughts on Guardians with you. :) Remind me if I forget. I'll try not to. :)

What's a good policy that Denmark has, or doesn't have? I'm sure you have a few that Americans don't have.

I'll give it a think about tv and movie comedies. Can't think clearly about them at the moment.

Well put. I really enjoy The Wolf of Wall Street. Like you I didn't like the ending when I first saw the film in theaters but after I looked into what the filmmakers had to say about it I came to really appreciate it.

Yeah...I get asked about the Spider-Man thing quite a bit. It seems like it's one of those films that people either love or hate. Here are some of my thoughts:

I'm a huge Spider-Man fan and I'm someone that really enjoys the movies and comic books, especially the comic book series "Ultimate Spider-Man" which The Amazing Spider-Man films are influenced by.

The film features my two favorite Spider-Man villains Electro and Green Goblin. I've been following Dane DeHaan's work since "Chronicle" and loved his portrayal of Harry Osborn. I also thought Jamie Foxx was great as Max Dillon and loved how Electro was much more of a tragic character that only wanted to be noticed rather than wanting to control the universe like most bland comic book movie villains these days.

I thought the film was a perfect progression from the first film that ties the two very well together. I also thought the film had the perfect blend of action, humor, and emotion.

I also like the director Marc Webb. Besides the recent Spider-Man films I also love his feature film debut (500) Days of Summer as well as his work on music videos. I think he has a very cool visual style to him that I appreciate and I think this film looks stunning.

The music in the film is simply fantastic. I'm someone that is very into movie scores with Hans Zimmer being my personal favorite composer. The score for this film is one of my personal favorites.

And finally, I love the dynamic between Peter and Gwen. I know the romance element is too prevalent for some people but I really like it because it adds a human and emotional element to the film and made the final act that much more tragic.

Anyways, that's some of the reasons why I really like the film. Will it stay in that spot on my list forever? Maybe not but right now that's where it is for me.

I'd like to hear some reasons why you didn't like the film if that's alright with you.

I love Dr. Strangelove! It's in my Top 20 and I think it's one of the best films ever made.Everything is so perfect,from the cinematography to the performances it's all just great.

Even though I've only seen 5 of his films,Kubrick has forever changed how I watched movies.2001:A Space Odyssey was the movie that got me interested in film.What are your thoughts on him? How would you rank his films?

I haven't seen 12 Years a Slave, but I have seen Schindler's List. It's one of my favorite movies and one of Spielberg's best. It has a great score, great performances by Fiennes and Neeson, and is extremely realistic. I would definitely recommend it to you. :)

Sorry for the late reply, man. But no problem, I'd love to talk some Kubrick with you. His films just radiate this power and emotion that very few other films do. People say his work is cold and detached, but I disagree. A lot of his films are very optimistic and sensitive, even if they don't appear it on the surface.

The World's End is just perfect. It has an energy all it's own. The dialogue is amazing, the acting outstanding and it is one of the most sobering (excuse the pun) explorations of addiction ever captured on film. Such greatness. I love it.

HEY! The Godfather took your top spot! What made it stick out for you over The Avengers?

Could you elaborate on how Disney "brainwashes" kids? Not quite sure if you're using the term right. It definitely influences them (perhaps negatively) but I watched Snow White and Winnie the Pooh as a kid and I wouldn't say I was brainwashed.

I sort of got the impression that the US was more of a Mickey Mouse Club. "Who's the leader of the club that's made for you and me?" "Hey-there, hi-there, ho-there, you're as welcome as can be!" Perhaps statements about the president and eagerness for civilians to enlist?

Clockwork Orange isn't all that disturbing. It's not all that scary. A lot of messed-up stuff happens, but it's mostly in the first half hour. If you want, it can be viewed as a blackest-of-the-black comedy.

Edgar Wright is a genius. His films have an excellent energy that no one can equal. He's got a great attention to detail. His compositions are always beautiful. He's also a top-notch writer. His dialog is top-notch. And his films are a lot deeper than people think they are. They work on many levels.

Oh yeah, I was disappointed that he left Marvel. Even though it definitely wasn't his fault. He's been working on the project since before Iron Man came out, so he couldn't want out now, considering how passionate he is. I'm still going to see the movie, but with considerably lower expectations. How about you? Are you looking forward to it?

Wow, five times?! Over how long?

I agree the opening scene with Spider-Man is one of the highlights of the film. Such a thrilling opening. The first time I saw the film I too was a little unsure about Electro's motivation but it didn't detract from my enjoyment. I thought I've also read somewhere that he's supposed to be schizophrenic which could explain some of his actions. And I agree about the Rhino. Probably my least favorite part of the film.

I see you recently watched Gangs of New York. What did you think of Daniel Day-Lewis in the film? Have you seen much of his other work?

My Mount Rushmore of Directors would probably be Kubrick, Scorsese, the Coen Brothers and Wes Anderson. Maybe Paul Thomas Anderson would be in there as well when I see more of his films. How about you?

I assume you want to know about why I dislike Superman's character, as I'm pretty sure we agree on everything else being bad. Superman is pretty bland, goody-good-ness. It is set up nowhere in the film that he thinks killing is bad. And then he kills most of Metropolis, feeling no empathy. And then he'll snap Zod's neck to save some faceless tourists, and is apparently really saddened by this now. And then in the next scene he's making silly jokes about being hot or something. Just a really inconsistent and simplistic character. And the film is based entirely around him. A much better film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, shows a character similar to Superman become really interesting because he's placed in a really interesting conflict in which he is consistently tested, sometimes with different reactions, but never out-of-character ones, and the story around him was interesting, which counts for a lot. These are all things Man of Steel failed at. You get me? :D

How was Bicycle Thieves?

Gangs of New York is a film that I enjoyed the first time but didn't fully appreciate until the second time I watched it. I agree Daniel Day Lewis is quite spectacular. I've also seen him in Lincoln and thought he was very good there as well.

There Will Be Blood is a film I'll be watching sometime soon. I've heard it's a film you don't fully understand until you've seen it a couple times so I'm curious about it.

All my thoughts on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice are speculatory, as I haven't seen the film yet, but I don't think the odds are in it's favor. It seems to really be biting off more that it can chew by going into the whole introduction of Batman and Wonder Woman as secondary characters. That may be too much to put into a movie, if you ask me. And after Man of Steel, I just don't care about this Superman character. And I won't care about him in the movie, unless they change things up from last time.

What movies do you plan on checking out soon?

I'm going to see Mystic River,Flags of our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima next.After that,I'm thinkin' I'll probably see more from Kubrick,so I'll probably be seeing Lolita, Spartacus, Barry Lyndon, The Shining and Full Metal Jacket.How about you?

Boyhood is very very very very very very flawed. But not without good. Lots of good in there. Nice little scenes, some funny moments, some great performances, nice writing, BUT . . . The ending dragged like all hell, hated that. And the scene with the plumber in the restaraunt . . . UGH. Terribly written. The kids were also a little shaky at parts, particularly Linklater's daughter. So, a mixed bag. That's a fitting term. What'd you think?

I see that Denmark and Australia are tied in the education index, which calculates the average amount of years people go to school. Seeing it's free over there, then that's going to be a factor in that score.

We have to pay for the doctor, but if it's an emergency, the doctors will help. Not like America, where people have had to choose what finger to save because they don't have enough money.

We also pay pregnant women with parental leave. But there's many problems over here. The previous government put us in dent by 150 billion dollars, which has to be paid in a few years. Now, the new government have to make cuts, but instead of targeting the rich, they're targeting pensioners, and uni students. They also want to lower the minimum wage, which is not an Aussie thing to do. We don't want it like America, where people have to take two jobs and rely on tips, because they only make $8/hour.

8000 movies? :D

Guardians of the Galaxy just made me happy. I had a continuous grin on my face. As soon as Pratt was singing, using an alien rat thing for a mic, I knew it would be high on my list. I just wish i watched it with a better crwod! I got no energy off them, and they were nearly zapping it off me. It was just a total package movie for me. I had a laugh, loved the action, and the camaraderie between the characters was brilliant. Also loved the underrated Yondu, and his unique weapon. I just wish, with all my heart, that they added the ooga chaka music from the first trailer for an action scene. I can't describe to you how pumped I get when I see that trailer! If it did, I would've had it five places higher on my list. My favourite character is probably a tie between Rocket and Star Lord. Oh, and I was so impressed with the visuals! I forgot, just for a little while, that there's no such thing as a talking raccoon and tree. :)

My favourite director's at the moment would be Tarantino, Nolan, Scorsese, Spielberg, Fincher, Kubrick, Denis Villeneuve, Jean-Pierre Melville (need to find more of his work), and Joon-Ho Bong.

Once again, I'm very sorry. To try and make up for it, I went into more detail with the my comment this time. Very sorry. Once I saw your comment, I knew something went wrong. I only put a like next to the comment once I have sent the comment to somebody. There was a like already next to the comment.

To be fair, the studio system is known to butcher movies all the time. I think that Garfield and Webb are honestly pretty justified in making those claims. Snyder saying people didn't "Understand" his shitty Superman is different, though. That guy just doesn't really know what he's talking about.

I see Shane's comment above me and assume you're from Denmark, yes? Pretty cool, man. I'm from Ireland. Leprechauns and stuff, yeah? Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, all that good stuff.

So, I assume Seven Samurai is your next film to see, yeah? Have you seen any other Kurosawa films?

No, I've never thought of that idea before! :) The story of Uncle Sam would have to be told in the same style as Forrest Gump. :) Go on, get writing! I'll fund you. :D

Hmmm, negative things about Guardians. The after credits scene was a let down, and a few jokes didn't hit the mark. Ronan was a bit too generic, but I didn't have major problems with him. I had more problems with Malekith, who's name I had already forgotten. I actually thought you meant Malachai from Children of the Corn at first! :D Silly me! :)

Yeah, I enjoy many of the films from Linklater, Kurosawa, and Anderson. I'm sure you'll find some, if not all their films to be to your liking.

Thanks a lot. :)

Guardians was brilliant. Really fun, clever and a lot more somber than people are giving it credit for. Lloyd Kaufman gave an excellent performance. Great cinematography, too.

Bicycle Thief was fantastic. A really well-made film. Brilliantly executed with great care. Such great, feel-bad pessimism. Dandy.

It's hard for me to judge, mate. I love Tarantino films, and they are all quite consistent for me (except for Death Proof). If I had to have a guess to your opinion on Kill Bill, I would assume you would think Vol 1 was more like Django, and Vol 2 was more like Resevoir Dogs. Could be totally wrong, but that is what my best guess is. :)

I would say that Guardians had a few moments of exposition that went overboard. Things like "Thanos, my leader, will kill me if I do not receive the Stone" seem really forced, as he seems to be saying it for no reason other than for the audience to hear it, which is kinda lazy.
And I'm also getting sick of the "Infinitely Stones" garbage. I mean, it's been the same thing in The Avengers, Captain America, Thor and however many more. It's gotten old at this stage.

How about you? What didn't you like about Guardians?

Yeah, I mean these news are great. This is probably the biggest piece of movie news to drop over the past couple of years.

I don't know that much about the comics, since I don't read alot of comics, but I do know the most popular characters well enough. Really excited about the Chadwick Boseman casting as Black Panther and Benedict Cumberbatch (not actual yet, but they are in final negotiations) as Doctor Strange. I'm dying to see Captain America: Civil War (one of the few comic stories I've read) and Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 & 2. Don't really know much about the Ragnarok storyline though, but I've heard it's supposed to be great, and I don't know much about Captain/Miss Marvel either. And to be honest I don't know squat about the Inhumans. All I know is that it is Marvel, which means I'm excited for it.

Man, DC have alot of catching up to do after this...

Interstellar - pros & cons

Cons:

Casey Affleck and Wes Bentley's characters were kinda, well, kinda useless. They were good in it but they weren't very meaningful for story purposes.

John Lithgow was underused. He is such a great actor and I would've loved to see more of him in it.

Some of the dialogue felt like......odd. It was like it was there just for the trailers, like; "We used to look up and wonder at our place in the stars, now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt". Even though that's a good line, it isn't really something people would say in a real, casual conversation, while sitting on the front porch and drinking beer.

There were some occasional exposition-scenes were a character would explain a big problem, or issue, to the other character(s) while merely ten minutes away from that problem or issue (like with the whole wormhole conversation Cooper has with Romilly)

Pros:

Everything else.... (the score, acting, editing, special effects, cinematography, the meaning, the dialogue (for the most part), the father-daughter relationship, the emotional core, art design, the plot and writing, the cast and chemistry, the pacing (it's unusual for a film that's nearly three-hours long to be justified. It earns that run-time because it needs to be that long.) the sound effects and sound editing ("in space no one can hear you.....do anything") and the absolutely mind-blowing directing from Nolan, are just some of the pros of the film IMO. It'd probably take me, like the time dilation of Dr. Millers planet and earth, to write down all of them)
