Nice top ten. I'm interested to know why War of the Worlds is in there. I think it's one of Spielberg's worst movies, but I'd like to know what your reasons are for loving it. I need to see Drive, too. I've heard it's pretty awesome.

yeah, war of the worlds is just like one of my favorite childhood movies cuz i saw it in theaters wen i was 7 and i still love it cuz it just is a great movie and has great effects and that beginning tripod scene is superb, idk, thats my opinion. Drive is amazing, such a great movie even though the actors combined only say like 5 lines in the whole movie, haha, but its good mainly cuz of ryan gosling, he's great and the soundtrack is really good too. i was wondering, are you from chattanooga, TN? cuz i live in franklin, right by nashville.

Thanks! I love Fassbender ever since I first saw him in the film Shame. He was terrific in Prometheus and was definitely one of the best parts of it.

I loved Prometheus and I really don't care if anyone disagrees. I absolutely enjoy the feeling of being able to bend my brain and my mind while watching a film and Prometheus never failed to disappoint me in that aspect. It may have a few big unanswered questions, sure, but it leaves those up to open-ended discussions that have different outcomes. Everyone these days always expects a movie to tie up every loose end all the time and if they don't, then they turn that movie into a scum of the filmmaking industry.

I think the "You don't have it in you" quote was definitely my favorite. I seriously think I was the only one in the theater that was laughing hysterically at it, or even laughing at all. Fassbender's voice is awesome. He's like the Morgan Freeman of Britain.

It's definitely a very acting-driven movie. You'll even see Danny deVito and Christopher Lloyd in the movie, before they became really famous in the 80s. Jack Nicholson gives one of his best performances and he is insanely likable in the movie. I suggest you give it a watch.

I'm glad you liked it. Fantasy is usually not my thing when it comes to films but I've been a big Tolkien fan since I was a kid and thought Jackson did a great job with these adaptations. Even though the films are so long, there are still many things that couldn't be fit into the films and I would recommend to anyone who doesn't mind reading, to read the books starting with "The Hobbit" which is the prequel to the LOTR trilogy. By the way I can't wait to see the 1st installment of "The Hobbit" this winter!

Mine, of course, would be Inglourious Basterds. Christoph Waltz is one of the best villains as The Jew Hunter, and as always, Tarantino films have a bit of humor and gore. This is his funniest. I can recite this movie too.

Pulp Fiction. It's the only film that I've seen that I still consider to be nearly perfect. It has a fantastic cast, some of the greatest writing in a movie, and so many memorable quotes and scenes. I've seen it multiple times and it still has the power to make me forget what scene comes next. It feels fresh every time I see it, and it only gets better with every new viewing. I love it and it reminds me why movies are my favorite thing in the first place.

On a side note, if anyone ever tells me that they didn't like the movie, I'm gonna have to get medieval on their ass!

The Lord of the Rings. I have a hard time separating it into three movies (though I have done so on my Flickchart). Fellowship would be my favorite third; I counted, and I saw it thirteen times before The Two Towers hit theaters a year later. (I had much more time back then.)

My favorite movies can be measured in trilogies: Star Wars as a kid, Indiana Jones and Back to the Future as a teen, LOTR and Nolan's Dark Knight now.

It's either The Shawshank Redemption for Fight Club. Both very different but when watching these films I've experienced something like never before. Fight Club showed me a fascinating perspective on pop culture and manhood while Shawshank Redemption moved me, and involved me in characters like never before.

1- In "Serenity" when River Tam a 90 pound girl kicks the #&@! out of random bar patrons when a subliminal message triggers her subconscious combat conditioning. Also toward the end when she slaughters dozens of "Reavers" to save her friends.

2- In the movie "Ultraviolet" Violet Song Jat Shariff played by Milla Jovovich amazes throughout the entire movie with unearthly agility and aided by nano tech weapons and a sexy color shifting outfit.

Those are not my absolute favorites but I thought they deserve some attention as they are generally underrated and are severely Bad@$$!

The whole second half of the Moria sequence in The Fellowship of the Ring, right from the fight in Balin's Tomb to the fight with the Balrog on the Bridge of Khazad-Dum. Not only is Balin's Tomb one of (and in my opinion, THE) best fight scenes in the trilogy, but the whole think just screams "badass" and "epic" from start to finish. Plus when you look at how far the characters have come at the start of the movie up until that point, you realise just how much stuff has happened and what and adventure it's all been (and that's about 45 minutes before the end of the movie!). That's also probably the reason why fellowship is my favourite of the LOTR movies.

Yes I have seen No Country, good example, and a good lead-in to the most bad-ass scenes. The flip the coin part is amazing. Love the Nic Cage warehouse scene in Kick Ass (the score to it multiplies my enjoyment) The ear part in Resevoir Dogs, a certain part in Prometheus that I won't say in case you haven't seen it, hulk vs Loki, the standoff in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and I'm predicting from the trailer that I will love the scene where it's said ' when Gotham is ashes....... You have my permission to die' There is a few off my the top of my head.

Thanks for accepting dude.

I know it sounds crazy but I'm going with The Dark Knight Rises. It's Nolan's last Batman movie and TDK was snubbed in 2008. It stands a chance. The Master will definitely get a nomination.

If it's good, TDKR could get nominated but it won't win. The academy seem to turn their noses up at the thought of anything in the superhero genre, which is why Heath Ledger's win was a revelation (aside from him being dead of course). Honestly I haven't seen anything else that suggest a Best Picture nomination, let alone a win, but will keep my eyes peeled for early predictions.

It's too early to tell. But I think Moonrise Kingdom may have a shot. Also, The Hobbit, The Great Gatsby, and possibly Djanjp Unchained.

Even though I haven't seen it, I think Moonrise Kingdom has a shot too, because I have heard really good things about it. Hopefully Django will be awesome and replace Basterds and be number 1 on my list.

Moonrise Kingdom is not winning BP this year. As it is, it may just barely slip in as a nominee. Although this is clearly Wes Anderson's most financially successful and most accesible film, I'm still not sure that the Academy will embrace it fully.
As of right now, my predictions for the Best Picture nominees are as follows:
1. Les Miserables
2. Lincoln
3. The Master
4. Life of Pi
5. Beasts of the Southern Wild
6. Anna Karenina
7. Django Unchained
8. Moonrise Kingdom

As for who will win...Hard to say. Les Miserables is shaping up to be a HUGE player, but I don't know if AMPAS will give it to a Tom Hooper film just two years after The King's Speech won. Lincoln looks promising (Spielberg-directed biopic starring DDL), but until we see a trailer, we're in the dark- it could end up being another War Horse (In another words, a big disappointment, critically and awards-wise). The Master looks like the best of the bunch, but I don't think it'll win (It could be divisive). After that, I don't know. Life of Pi could do well as it appears to be this year's Hugo (A critical hit and a big awards player).

2. All three LOTR films; the greatest collective Soundtrack ever written in my opinion.

You could argue Master and Commander (21) as a war film, but I don't think of it as one (since it is ranked higher on my chart than SPR and Downfall). Also The Dambusters (31) Black Hawk Down (47) are worth a mention as just missing out at nos. 4 and 5

1. District 9 (11)
2. E.T. (16)
3. T2 (17)

However, I'd say these films would do better in action/adventure/thriller and family categories than they would in Sci-Fi, so for a list of traditional sci-fi films, I would give these three:

1. Alien (26)
2. Children of Men (35, although need to rewatch it again)
3. Straight toss-up between Prometheus (43) and Sunshine (44), can't decide which one I like better since they are both very similar films.

Also, honourable mentions to other partial Sci-Fi films such as Akira (32), The Fly (29), Inception (46), The Thing (51), and other traditional sci-fis like Moon (49) and Blade Runner (52).

Sorry, I know I'm carrying on, but there are some films on my list which are ranked lower than others but I think I better "Sci-Fi films" than there higher-ranking counterparts. I guess people prefer different films for different reasons, and genres can be interpreted on different levels. Technically the highest ranking Sci-Fi film on my list is Jurassic Park (8), but I don't regard it as a better "Sci-Fi" film than the other films I have mentioned. Anyway, these are my top 3 hybrid and traditional Sci-Fi films, sorry once again for embelishing my answer as always :P

Hmm, either Road to Perdition (10), Schindler's List (14) or Dear Zachary (17). Road to Perdition is technically my favourite as it is ranked highest, and Schindler's List I haven't seen in ages. But in terms of what made my cry the most, definitely Dear Zachary. That is the only film I have openly sobbed through in public while watching. Extremely sad and emotional charged film, made all the more powerful by the fact that it is a personal documentary about a true story.

Platoon. Honorable mentions to Toy Story 3, that almost made me cry 3 times during the movie, but never actually succeeded, and to the TV documentary 9/11 with Robert deNiro that DID made me cry (hard), but since that's a documentary, I guess it doesn't really count. And even then, I much rather watch Platoon again.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy, with an honorable mention to the Star Wars trilogy. I just think Rotj is nowhere as good as the first two. The Lotr movies are more consistent in quality.

The Star Wars trilogy, of course. However, the early reviews for The Dark Knight Rises have been great, so I might have to amend this answer later on. ;)

Lord of the rings by a long way. I do like Star Wars a lot, and actually prefer rotj over the other two, but lotr is just so much better for me. It'll be interesting to see what happens with TDKR, if it joins lotr and toy story as the only trilogies without a major weak link (according to most people), but for me lotr will always be the best.

1. The Star Wars opening. I mean my god, so memorable. The crawl followed by the ships and the planets and the lasers...do I really need to say more?
2. Raiders of the Lost Ark. Also insanely memorable, I mean: the idol, the plane, the jungle, the boulder, the traps, the atmosphere
3. Watchmen. And with that I mean the opening credits, not the very first scene with the comedian, althoguh that scene could qualify too. Great music, great visuals, very memorable. I think the movie itself is great too, although the rest isn't as good as the opening credits. It's fantastic.
4. There will be blood. The opening tune, the striking
visuals, the hand with oil. Great stuff.
5. Hellboy. Great scene, with the rain and the lighting and atmosphere. Another instance where I think the movie is fantastic, but the opening is far superior.

3. The Dark Knight (25)

4. Akira (32) (The Bike Chase is some of the best animation I have ever watched)

5. Children of Men (35)

Honorable mentions to Terminator 2 (18), The Shawshank Redemption (12) (which I studied in great detail for English) and GoldenEye (95); highest bungee jump ever filmed for a feature film followed by some great action.

Nice interpretation Connerwood, lol. Anyway, from bad to worst:
10. Star Wars The Clone Wars (Although Episode 2 is probably worse, so this may change)
9. White Chicks (one of the worst premises ever)
8. Hancock (starts off okay, but after the first third turns into bullshit)
7. Fanboys (worse than Spaceballs, and I don't like Spaceballs. Unlikable and forgetable characters, and unfunny humor that a regular Star Wars fan won't get)
6. Elephant (actually not THAT bad in comparison to another Van Sant movie on this list. Probably doesn't belong on here, but whatever.)
5. Napoleon Dynamite (unfunny movie about an annoying asshole. I stopped watching it, I can't stand the character at all.)
4. Pink Panther 2 (again, probably doesn't belong here, but whatever. One of the unfunniest movies I've ever seen)
3. District 9 (this will cause some controversy I guess...unoriginal, annoying, bullshit ending, zero logic and plotholes)
2. Pirates of the Carribean 3 (one of the worst watching esperiences of my life. Long, boring and tedious. Torture.)
1. Paranoid Park (I don't like very artsy movies. At all. I don't care if you shout 'you don't get it' at me, fine, maybe I don't. But this particular movie isn't artsy. This is pretentious bullshit. There is no excuse for this movie. Zero, none. You can't convince me. At least with a movie like 2001, which I don't hate, you can convince me what it is about or what the movie is trying to tell. Not with this one. It is all meaningless and a big waste of time. Besides that, the characters are assholes and the movie is...unintentionally unfunny? I don't know how to describe it.)

If you like any of these movies, that's fine. I respect your opinion, I hope you respect mine.

10. The Most Dangerous Game (1932) - I'm probably being too hard on it, but I didn't like how the film deviated from the short story.
9. Bride of the Monster (1955) - Hey, they don't call Ed Wood "The Worst Director of All Time" for nothing.
8. Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla (1952) - It's as bad as the title suggests.
7. Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004) - Just wretched.
6. Indestructible Man (1956) - Crappy B movie starring Lon Chaney Jr.
5. Casino Royale (1967) - Incoherent garbage. Unworthy of the James Bond name.
4. The General (1926) - I know this is controversial, but I found this movie soooo boring. It's mostly just Buster Keaton riding a train. Zzzzzzz.
3. Our Hospitality (1923) - This one bored me even more than The General. Sorry, Buster.
2. Safety Last! (1923) - I'm obviously not much of a silent film fan. I just don't enjoy them, for some reason.
1. Intolerance: Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages (1916) - A three-hour silent film? Just shoot me.

@Boonmee - Sure, The General is brilliantly constructed and, in many ways, far ahead of its time; but, in terms of its ability to entertain, it didn't do much for me. I enjoyed The Navigator and Seven Chances much more. Also, I prefer Chaplin's work to Keaton's.

Here are my favorite silent-era films:

1. The Kid
2. Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans
3. Modern Times
4. The Gold Rush
5. The Navigator

Interesting question Boonmee. I just realised that most of my top 100 have nothing to do with New York, but if I go based on overall ranking rather than what I think of the film in terms of New York, it would look something like this:

1. The Godfather
2. Man on Wire
3. The Avengers
4. Leon: The Professional
5. Annie Hall

Technically films like Independence Day, Men in Black, Watchmen and United 93 could/should be on the list since New York is featured, but I'm not going to since New York is rarely the focus in them (Men in Black), is only featured for a few seconds (ID4, United 93), is completely different to it's real life setting (Watchmen). Plus I feel it would be extremely tasteless to bring up United 93 in this list (and a bit false to be fair). Oh, and honorable mentions to Taxi Driver.

I saw the Biograph Theater where John Dillinger was shot in Public Enemies and in real life. I stayed in the Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago and on the rooftop of the hotel, they filmed the opening scene of Wanted there. And I saw where Nolan filmed the Joker blowing up the hospital in The Dark Knight. Movie filled trip, :)

In no particular order:

1. Human Centipede 2 (I have seen screenshots of the scenes they cut in order to get it legal in the UK, and I have seen the first one. I intend never to pursue the line of enquiry further)
2. Human Centipede 3 (when and if it is ever released)
3. The Hangover 2 (hated the first)
4. All the High School Musical films
5. New Year's Eve
6. Green Lantern
7. Home on the Range (worst mainstream Disney film ever apparently)

There are loads of others, but these were the first which came to mind

Another question then: What were your favorite movies when you were a kid? For me:
- Monsters Inc. (although even when I was younger I couldn't stand the little girl)
- A Bug's Life (first Pixar movie I saw)
- Harry Potter 1 and 2 (HP1 was the first DVD I owned)
- Pinocchio (Disney)
- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Disney)
- The Muppet Christmas Carol (didn't own it, but always watched it when it was on TV. They still show it on Christmas over here)
- Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey (always watched that one at my grandparents' house)
- Bean (watched it a lot as a kid...but the movie is actually shit. They just recycled some sketches and made a movie out of it. Watch the sketches instead.)

I F*CKIN' LOVED HOMEWARD BOUND!!!

To be honest, my favourite films as a kid were pretty much the same as they are now; I grew up with Jurassic Park, Jaws and Apollo 13 (and to a lesser extent The Right Stuff and as a teenager the LOTR trilogy), therefore accounting for 7 of my top 10. I suppose my favourite Disney films at the time (basically the same question worded differently, because most of the films people think of as kids are Disney films) would have been The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and The Hunchback of Notre Dame (particularly the latter as an adult I might add).

What is the first movie you saw in a movie theater and can you remember anything of the experience?
Hercules is the first movie I saw in a theater. I must've been 4 years old, and I can actually remember sitting there. The theater was almost empty, there was just a man with his daughter there. I can't remember much from the movie besides Hades, he was fun.

My first I can remember was actually for a drive-in. I was very young, the movie was Milo and Otis, and I loved it! It has some scary scenes for a young kid! For the cinema it was Jurassic Park. I was seven, yet I can still remember vividly the taste of the popcorn, burnt!! Especially when I ran out of coke to wash it down! Do you ask why I kept eating it? Because I was seven = stupid kid. Plus it was my first time eating popcorn, for every ten pieces that were burnt, I would get a handful so nice, I would risk going back for more. This still stands as the worst popcorn I have ever had, but what a brilliant movie.

I have to confess I didn't find The Dark Knight Rises nearly as good as I would have hoped; massive let down for me (see my comment on TDK vs TDKR for details). But endings, let's see:

1. Apollo 13 (1)
2. Jaws (4)
3. The Shawshank Redemption (12)
4. E.T. (16)
5. The Usual Suspects (52)

Honorable mentions:
Akira (33) (not so much the ending as the entire climatic fight and wind-down following it)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt 2 (91) (not really a massive HP fan, but this is mainly because of the nostalgic value of bringing back the John Williams Score from the first movie for the final scene and also that moment when you realise just how massive the franchise has been and that it has finally come to an end. Pretty overwhelming actually).

I can't think of good endings at the moment. But Connerwood, you have some great picks. Unfortunately for me, Shutter Island didn't have the same impact as it did with others because, without me even wanting to, I guessed the ending the very first scene. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the movie, but I was left hoping I was wrong for the whole film.

I rather enjoy Alien3 more than most people and 3. While I prefer Prometheus to Aliens and Alien3, I regard it as a separate series in the same universe (as it should be)).

Honorable mentions to the Nolan Batman trilogy, as I felt that TDKR was a very weak entry in comparison to the other two.

Franchi SPAS 12 in any film it's in. The highest rated one on my list which features it to any great degree is Jurassic Park (even though it isn't fired at all whilst on-screen, only off-screen). Otherwise pretty much everything that was mentioned by you guys (particularly the District 9 guns and the Model 1887 in T2).

According to my list:
1. Les Intouchables aka Untouchable (35, hilarious and heartwarming comedy drama, based on a true story)
2. El Laberintho del Fauno aka Pan's Labyrinth (37, great movie, but kind of hard to watch because of the depressing tone)
3. Der Untergang aka Downfall (82, very good but a little too melodramatic at times)
4. Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis aka Welcome to the Sticks (90, decent comedy, hilarious in parts)
5. Rien a Déclarer aka Nothing to Declare (153, by the same director of no. 4, but not nearly as funny)
6. El Orfanato aka The Orphanage (161, I didn't find it that special. Everyone loves it, but I thought it was okay at best)

Like Connerwood, I don't watch that many foreign films.

I don't know if I'd call these my top three, but these are some good ones I've watched recently:

- The Social Network (Two-Disc Collector's Edition) -- Disc Two has a very cool Making of... documentary of the film.

- Star Trek (3-Disc Special Edition) -- Great special features.

- John Carter (Blu-Ray/DVD Combo) -- Shows a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff that's pretty cool.

If we're talking overall picture and sound quality than I'd say the best blu-rays I own are:
1. Kubrick blu-ray box-set (If I had to pick one from the set, it'd be 2001)
2. Children of Men
3. Amadeus

The Amadeus blu-ray? Really? I thought that was one of the more disappointing ones. Not bad, just underwhelming / average, both in audio and video.

Anyway, in terms of picture quality, in no order:
- Hellboy 1 and 2 (2 is slightly better)
- Lord of the Rings Extended(!) Editions (Two Towers has the best imho, Return of the King is a close second)
- District 9 (I hate the movie, but the PQ is very good)
- Planet Terror (despite the added grain and stuff, the picture is extremely sharp)
- Back to the Future (the first one)
- Taxi Driver

In terms of audio:
- Batman & Robin (If you have rear speakers you're gonna love the audio. Too bad the movie sucks)
- Lord of the Rings Extended Editions
- Fight Club
- Apocalypse Now (this movie pretty much invented the 5.1 surround sound, so ofcourse it sounds great)

I was thinking about asking that, Caesar.
Also Connerwood, I wouldn't consider Independence Day a good movie, more like a bad one. Funny how I love ID4 even though I think it's bad, and you think the complete opposite. And you call The Mist a bad movie? I think it's great!

'GOOD' movies I hate, really don't like or just don't like:
- District 9 (Hate)
- Spaceballs (Really don't like)
- Batman Returns (Really don't like)
- Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (Really don't like)
- Napoleon Dynamite (Hate)
- Romeo + Julliet (Hate)
- (500) Days of Summer (Really don't like)
- Ghostbusters (Don't like)
- Grease (Don't like. Talk about giving a wrong message to women. 'Change your look and personality to get the one you love'...ouch. The songs are catchy as hell though)
- Alice in Wonderland (The original animated movie. Don't like. Not bad, but I remember being bored as hell as a kid)

'BAD' movies I love, really like or just like:
- Planet Terror (Love. Even though it's supposed to be bad.)
- Batman Forever (Like. Way better than Batman Returns imho)
- Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (Love)
- Independence Day (Really like)
- Drive Angry (Like)

There is a misunderstanding and they think they hate each other...that's in almost every bad romcom ever made. And besides that, the movie isn't funny at all.

- The Dark Knight Rises (ditto from Forrest Gump)
- Armaggedon (I don't even think this is a "GOOD" movie, but it's so popular for reasons I can't really understand)
- Babe (f*cking talking animals beating Apollo 13 to a visual effects oscar!)

4. The Master (Paul T Anderson...do I have to say more?)
5. TIE: Looper (Looks very interesting) and Killing them Softly (Brad Pitt as a scary bad-ass...I'm in)

Boonmee on 8/9/2012 Reply  · 

I think he's a lock for the nomination, but not for the win. Spielberg has never directed an Academy-Award-winning performance, and DDL just won his second Oscar 5 years ago. The role is great, and DDL is always solid, but it will be tough competition. He's up against Joaquin Phoenix (The Master), Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables) and- to a lesser extent) Bill Murray (Hyde Park on Hudson).

Will Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained count as Actor or supporting? And 5% chance that Jamie Foxx could be nominated, if Django is amazing

0 people liked this  √ 

Boonmee

Boonmee on 8/10/2012 Reply  · 

Waltz looks to definitely be supporting, but he's not even on my radar this year. He looks to be doing something very similar to what he did in 'Basterds' (Maybe a little less eccentric, but still similar) and I think the Academy will look elsewhere. If anyone other than DiCaprio gets a nomination, I think it will be Jackson (Although it looks like his role is very small, so maybe not). Now, as for Foxx, I'm not so sure about that. 'Django' looks even more out of the Academy's comfort zone than 'Basterds' did and it'll be interesting to see if this is a 'Basterds' redux (Oscar-wise, of course) or if it goes the way of Kill Bill (Zero Oscar attention). I think it'll be somewhere in between, but either way, I don't think Foxx will get in. Best Actor is usually reserved for actors playing historical figures or big, showy roles (Or both). Foxx looks cool in the trailers and cool doesn't tend to sell with the Academy (See: Ryan Gosling, Drive).

The only reason Kill Bill didn't get Oscar attention was beacuse it didn't have a powerful story like Inglourious Basterds or even Django when it comes out. KB is just entertainment.

Here's a question which I don't think has come up; name your top 5 documentary films (or as many as you have seen). I ask because a friend and I set up the Documentaries society at Durham University and I have seen so many documentary films this year. Mine are:

1) In the Shadow of the Moon (9)
2) Dear Zachary (17)
3) Collapse (34)
4) Man on Wire (59)
5) Grizzly Man (104)

Honorable mentions to An Inconvenient Truth and Super Size Me.

1. Undefeated (Oscar winner for documentary- 2011. I cried at the end. It was the story of the Manassas Tigers 2009 season and it was set in Memphis, TN (my hometown) so I could relate to it well) (94)

2. Restrepo (Oscar winner for documentary- 2010. Story of a platoon spending 1 year in Korengal Valley, Afghanistan who made their stronghold called Outpost Restrepo named after their fallen comrade, PFC Juan Restrepo. They face intense firefights and tight situations during that year. Very compelling) (122)

Restrepo is great! I should point out, though, that it didn't win the Oscar. It lost to Inside Job (Which I thought was good, but not as good as Restrepo).

I can't really answer this, because the following (at least the last two) aren't as much documentary films as they are (part of a) documentary series. But anyway:

1. Any documentary by Louis Theroux. I absolutely love his stuff. He has a style of interviewing I really like. Not only does he ask people their feelings on a difficult subject, but he also tells those people HIS feelings. If you haven't seen any of his documentaries, then definitely check some of them out, because each of them is fanstastic. The ones I recommend the most are:

- 'Louis, Martin and Michael' (Louis tries his best to get an interview with Michael Jackson. A funny but also sad documentary, and actually takes place during the infamous 'baby-dangling incident'.
- 'Gambling in Las Vegas' (Louis discovers the world of gambling in Las Vegas)
- 'The most hated family in America' (About the Westboro Baptist Church and its people in Texas)
- 'Behind Bars' (Louis Theroux visits the San Quentin prison in California, one of the most notorious prisons in America)
- 'America's most hated family in crisis' (The follow-up that takes place 4 years after the original. Just as good as the original, HIGHLY recommended if you love the first one)

2. BBC nature documentaries (Life of Mammals, Planet Earth, Life, Frozen Planet, all that good stuff.)

3. Walking with Dinosaurs, Walking with Beasts and Walking with Monsters (NOT Walking with Cavemen...that just didn't work.)

I was thinking more in terms of Documentary films which were given a release on the big screen, but yes the BBC nature documentaries are by far the best on offer. Beats most of the tripe on Animal Planet anyway. Plus Walking with Dinosaurs was brilliant to watch back in the day, but I swear every single documentary made by the same people afterwards was just trying to sponge off the success of Dinosaurs (they kept saying "from the creators of Walking with Dinosaurs" many years later as if they knew they hadn't created anything else to match it).

@ smatticus True, like I said: 2 and 3 aren't documentary films. Surprisingly enough, 4 out of the 5 Louis Theroux documentaries DO show up in the Flickchart database, so I guess those count, even though they are 'made-for-TV documentary films'.
And about the 'from the people who made Walking with Dinosaurs comes...'-thing...yeah, it's true that something like that ('From executive producer Steven Spielberg', 'Quentin Tarantino presents') is just a somewhat misleading marketing technique. But I must say that I think the other 'Walking with...' series were good as well. In fact, 'Walking with Monsters' is my favorite of the three. It was the most interesting, had the best CGI, had good use of practical effects (in Walking with Dinosaurs it looked extremely obvious whenever they used the plastic heads) and was the least boring. So it may be true that they used that for marketing, but it isn't always a bad thing. And you must also realise that after Walking with Dinosaurs there were several knock-offs that look horrendous in comparison with any of the 'Walking with...'-series.

Here's a question for today:
What are your top 3 theater experiences?
Mine in no particular order:

The Simpsons Movie: Nearly full theater on the first Saturday it showed on. Everyone was laughing and having fun. It was a great time

The Dark Knight Rises: This was the second or third midnight screening that I'd ever been to and the theater was almost sold out. Aside from an annoying woman who kept pointing out the obvious as she sat behind me, the crowd was great.

The Artist: I saw this at a beautiful one-screen-theater in NYC called "The Paris Theater". I sat in the balcony at a sold-out screening. The crowd laughed and cheered and applauded at the end- it was just an ideal crowd to see a film with.

The theater was full completely and when that woman said to Gordon-Levitt that he should go by his real name, Robin (SPOILER), Everybody was cheering! and the scene where Wayne is at the table at the end (Spoiler, again, sorry), BEST EXPERIENCE! HANDS DOWN!

2. The Avengers: Same thing, everybody cheered at the best parts, A LOT OF FUN!

3. Iron Man: My birthday party, me and all my friends went to the screening of Iron Man, and that beginning scene where Back in Black plays while the humvees are going through the desert, we were like OH YEAH! And the rest if the movie was a ton of fun!

- Rise of the Planet of the Apes, many people in the theater gasped when Caesar spoke his first word, it was awesome.
- Les Intouchables / Untouchable, I was in one of the most lively crouds I've ever seen, it was fun. Everyone seemed to have a great time.
- The Dark Knight Rises, I didn't expect people to cry during the movie...but there were some that did, and I was surprised.

Not many more I can think of...people in The Netherlands aren't very 'expressive' when it comes to movies in theaters. In many (American) reviews of (good) movies I hear that people cheer and applaud at the end of a movie...something like that doesn't happen here at all, we just silently leave, feeling satisfied.

Sigh...I miss the question of the day...What are your favorite comedies?
1. Kick-Ass (5)
2. The Big Lebowski (6)
3. Back to the Future (8)
4. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (12)
5. Midnight in Paris (20)
6. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (27)
7. Galaxy Quest (30...should probably be higher)
8. Untouchable / Intouchables (Flickchart apparently thinks it's not a comedy...but it counts) (36)

Funniest? - Tie: Kick-Ass and Untouchable. Honorable mention to Galaxy Quest.
Least funny (, but still fantastic)? - The Big Lebowski
Best movie (from an objective standpoint)? - The Big Lebowski or Back to the Future.

Comedy is probably my least favourite genre, but according to flickchart, my top 10 are:

1. Team America (70)
2. Wallace and Gromit: The Wrong Trousers (74)
3. Gremlins (88)
4. Men in Black (89)
5. The Full Monty (90)
6. Some Like It Hot (96)
7. Shaun of the Dead (104)
8. Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (106)
9. Annie Hall (108)
10. Wallace and Gromit: A Close Shave (108)

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is technically number 1 on this list (66), but I need to rewatch the Indiana Jones films in order to re-evaluate their position, and I also don't really regard it as a comedy film as I do the other films on this list (also with the Italian Job, which should be at number 4). Honorable mentions to Kick Ass (128).

Hard to say when it's not released yet. It's definitely something different from Tarantino (like Inglourious Basterds was), that may be a good thing or it may be a bad thing. Leonardo DiCaprio is amazing in the trailers, but there are also some scenes in the trailers that have me scratching my head, mostly because of the tone. I'll wait till the reviews show up and then decide if I want to see it or not.

That thing looked like a bomb the moment Baz Luhrmann signed on. The trailer didn't change my mind, either. I mean, the fact that there's a JAY-Z SONG IN THE TRAILER indicates that the filmmakers don't seem to be in the right frame of mind for a 20's-set F. Scott Fitzgerald drama.

And the choice to move it back was pretty stupid, I think. How many people are going to want to see a film like The Great Gatsby in the summer when all the other studios are releasing their big-and-loud action blockbusters?

You do know that The Hobbit was supposed to be 2 movies, right? I don't know if the change from 2 to 3 Hobbit movies is good or bad, I guess it's a good thing. But you have to realise that the three Lord of the Rings movies were based on three long stories; they had to cut some things (like Tom Bombadil) out to make those movies not longer then they are now. But now with the Hobbit we get 3 movies based on 1 relatively short story. That's a completely different situation. So instead of cutting things out, they probably have to add things, from other Tolkien works or even something new. I wonder how that will turn out, I'm looking forward to the first one though.

One three-and-a-half hour movie seems fine to me. Heck, even the original plan (2 movies) seemed ok, but 3 films for The Hobbit is just excessive and quite frankly; greedy. The Hobbit doesn't need to be told in 6 to 7 hours.

Plus considering what I've seen in the trailer, and the fact it's been made for only $45 million (mere sixpence compared to most hollywood action films these days), it could be surprisingly good. Plus it's partly British (always good ;D ). So yeah, roll on next Friday.

I don't like the idea of remaking The Maltese Falcon. It's a classic and a remake would probably look silly next to the original. Plus, who would play Bogey's role. Whoever it would be, the result would look like a child playing in adults' clothing.

True, it's a classic but it's a classic that most of the general public hasn't even seen, so it'd be no big deal in remaking it. Plus, the movie has been made three times already; what harm would a fourth film do?

My main issue with the 1941 version of The Maltese Falcon is the horribly miscast Mary Astor. She was just way too frumpy to play the "knockout" femme fatale. She almost ruins the movie (for me, anyway). Give me a remake with Tom Hardy as Sam Spade, Michelle Williams as Brigid O'Shaughnessy and Christopher Nolan directing (he is a Warner Bros. guy, after all).

And if a remake is out of the question, why not a modern day sequel? The falcon was never found at the end of the 1941 movie. A sequel to a 70-year-old movie would be pretty intriguing.

Speaking of modern day sequels to classic movies, they're making A Christmas Story sequel that is set for a December straight-to-DVD release. Oh, and guess who's directing it: Brian Levant, also known as the director of the Arnold Schwarzenegger 'classic' Jingle All the Way...oh man.

Most films. There are very few movies that could actually benefit from a remake. All films that are bad and old don't need to be remade either. Some stories just don't work- no matter what decade you're setting them in.

@Boonmee Well...they're remaking the Judge Dredd from the 90s, and that's generally considered to be a bad movie. I don't have a real problem if they remade bad movies, for example I've heard that there are some people that prefer the Hills have Eyes remake over the original, because they didn't like the original.

@MysticSpoon Well yeah. I didn't mean all bad movies couldn't be remade. Some, such as Judge Dredd, are ripe for a redoing. It's just that there are some films that are so horrible that I don't think the story could ever be improved without changing every single thing about the original.

I agree. If a movie is bad because the basic story or even the concept is shit, no matter the condition of the original script, then I don't see the point of remaking that movie. If the movie has a pretty good basic story or good concept but a bad script, bad performances or bad directing, then a remake seems like a decent idea. The remake could turn out to be absolute crap, true, but it's better to remake a bad movie than a classic like Star Wars or Raiders of the Lost Ark. With a low bar set by the original, the chances of being better are higher. With an incredibly high bar, it's close to impossible.

Not sure if my comment came up, but @Boonmee and MysticSpoon, the only remakes which have actually worked in the last 20-30 years have been old B-movie horros and thrillers which never really survived to begin with, the best of which would include The Thing (1982 version, not 2011 version, although apparently it's alright), The Fly and to a lesser extent The Hills have Eyes. So yeah, that's probably the best market to tap into for remakes, as there are plenty of bad horrors and thrillers. But the films I think should never be remade would probably include Jaws, Jurassic Park, LOTR trilogy, Shawshank Redemption, The Matrix, Star Wars, Gladiator to name a few.

Hmm, could go either way. Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder = Ying and Yang. Knowing Zack Snyder the entire thing will be in slow-motion, and consequently twice the actual length. Knowing Nolan and scriptwriter David Goyer, they will hopefully reign Snyder in and put him on the right track. I honestly don't know, but I'm mildly hopeful. Like Boonmee, I am not a big Superman fan.

What are the three most disappointing films you've seen in theaters?

1. 2012: Just to clarify, I didn't go into this with high expectations. I knew that Roland Emmerich's films were over the top and goofy, but I was just looking for a good time with this one. After all, The Day After Tomorrow was my favorite movie for a few years when I was younger. This, however was dreadful. Not fun, not exciting and way longer than it had to be. It's just an all-around bad movie and I didn't enjoy at all. I think it's the only film that I almost walked out on.

2. Amelia: This one looked very promising initially. After seeing the trailers, I was excited to see this. A biopic on Amelia Earhart? I'm there! Instead, this was terrible. It ended up being one of those biopics that plays as a highlight reel for the moments in a person's life. It didn't focus on her character well. It just showed us her accomplishments one after the other and then her disappearance. Oh, and it was bland as hell.

3. Prometheus: I only put this at three because it's a better film than the two I mentioned above, but I was expecting a lot more from this than I was with 2012 and Amelia. Next to TDKR, this was my second most anticipated film of the summer. It was entertaining- I'll give it that- but it was still a mediocre movie with surprisingly bad character development and more than a few WTF-moments.

1. 2012: I thought it was going to dominate the disaster genre, but I was wrong. The special effects were amazing, but very cheesy in some parts and impossible situations to get out of, but I had some fun with it.

2. Robin Hood (2010): Almost fell asleep during this movie.

3. Valkyrie: DID fall asleep during this movie. I basically forgot everything about this movie. I need to rewatch it.

1. Star Wars: The Clone Wars...yeah. I saw this when I still liked the prequels. I saw the incredibly low score on RottenTomatoes, and I still wanted to see it. It was the first Star Wars movie I saw in a theater (and I guess also the last, unless they show the ORIGINAL versions of the original trilogy in theaters). And I was a fan: if it was related to Star Wars, I had to see it. I didn't like it then (because I thought it was too childish), and the more I think about it now the more I hate it. Terrible movie. RottenTomatoes was right, haha.

2. Avatar. I had trouble staying awake during the second half of the movie. So boring, nothing happened, I even thought the action scenes were soulless. I didn't care. The movie is not awful like some people claim it to be, but it's not good either. More like 'Meh.'.

I actually loved Prometheus. Admittedly I have had several months to mull it over after my initial reaction and it has dropped in my regards due to an occassionally incoherent tone and pointless characters, but I still rate it very highly, all things considered. Anyway, my top 3 would probably be:

1. Star Wars Episode I: Phantom Menace: in my opinion, the worst of the Star Wars movies (at least the second one, however bad it may have been, had a bit more eye candy and tongue-in-cheek humour, and yes I am being very kind to it even there). Phantom Menace was just boring; they tried to delve into intergalactic politics etc and it just became a massive yawn-fest. When you're a kid of about 8 years old, all you want to see are lightsabre fights and space battles (the former being pretty much the only enjoyable part of the film). And of course it had Jar Jar Binks, which even as a kid I found unfunny at best and homicide-inducing at worst.

2. The Dark Knight Rises: I could probably write an essay on the problems with this movie and why I didn't like it, so I'm not going to go into detail here as I've done it a million times before. All I'll say is that it was a massive disappointment in my eyes, had just as many problems as Prometheus did, and yet gets way more credit than it deserves as a movie. The difference is that while both movies had problems, I liked the goods which Prometheus had to offer, but TDKR had nothing to surprise me, very little to intrigued me, and I spent most of the experience sitting in the cinema either thinking "please get better, surely they're building up to something", or simply "wtf!?"

3. Quantum of Solace: This was a tough one because the first two are the only films which I can remember seeing in the cinema and actually being genuinely disappointed by. I saw QoS with all my friends for my 17th Birthday, and at the time a lot of us thought "erm, it was alright, but not as good as the last one". Very meh. It wasn't as bad as the first two on this list ( based on initial viewing I must emphasise; for all my bitching about TDKR, it is still a much better movie than QoS), but I rarely come out of the cinema thinking "meh" after so much build up. And as time has gone on, I've come to regard it as one of the worst Bond films in recent years.

It's alright. I've never read any 2000AD comics, and it's certainly a thousand times better than the Stallone Judge Dredd. The good points: 1) Deliciously violent action, 2) Dredd's character is pretty much nailed, 3) Very good cinematography in the slo-mo sequences (not to mention a decent excuse for slo-mo, something most modern day directors a la Zack Snyder have yet to utilise) and 4) Overall very impressive production considering the low budget. On the downside: 1) Very little tension in my opinion, which probably relates to the fact that the characters either aren't developed or aren't likeable (which to be fair goes with the turf with Judge Dredd), 2) It does become rather slow at times and 3) Although I haven't seen it, everyone else is comparing this film to The Raid, which is much faster paced and more exciting apparently (which I can believe).

So overall, I'd probably give it a 6/10, but a solid action film all the same (even if there could have been a bit more here and there). It's position on my flickchart would probably suggest a lower rating, but 6/10 is good I'd say.

Oh yeah, and the 3D is completely pointless. I'm not a fan of 3D anyway, but I would have enjoyed the film a lot more if I'd seen it in 2D, especially the cityscape sequences, which are very well done. I was so annoyed that I couldn't get to see it in 2D (only one ODEON cinema in the whole UK is showing it in 2D)

Most critics this side of the pond have given it a 6 or a 7 like me. I wanted to like it more but it just didn't have the pace I was expecting. It's got plenty of blood, guts, slo-mo kills and drugs trips to keep you entertained, and they nailed the character of Judge Dredd, but it's just lacking the kind of pace which comparable low budget Sci-Fi action films like District 9 had. But still, I'd definitely check it out if I were you. If nothing else, it's a brave attempt to create a comic book film for adults, rather like Watchmen (but unlike Watchmen, which I really like, depending on how you look at it, Dredd either lacks the sofistication of, or doesn't get bogged down by a heavy, murky political plot which Watchmen had). And let's face it, had it been done in Hollywood (as it's a joint US/UK/Indian funded film, directed by a British film director and filmed in South Africa), it would have lost 2000AD's characteristic violence in favour of a big budget PG-13 rated film, which would have been even worse than the Stallone film (which is saying something). So don't be put off by what I've said; I liked it, I just didn't enjoy as much as I thought I would and I wanted a bit more.

I watched it last night. It looks lie a desperate cry for Oscar consideration to me. That being said, I think it'll definitely get nominated in several categories and I don't think a BP win is out of the question.

Really, though, that trailer is just overflowing with sentimentality and self-importance. And that music? Seriously, John Williams seems to do the same score for every movie nowadays and the piece they used for the trailer was incredibly overbearing and unneeded. I honestly think the trailer would have been more powerful had some of the moments been without background music.

Sorry, that's probably not the reaction you were expecting. Rant over.

It'll probably be decent as long as the film isn't as bombastic as that trailer was.

Also, I don't think The Avengers has a chance in hell at getting nominated. A visual effects nomination is all it should expect. The Dark Knight was only close because it had the "percieved importance" factor. The Dark Knight was about something while The Avengers is just a straightforward popcorn movie with good reviews.

It's all very murky and again, I think it all depends on how willing the voters are to re-enter the LOTR world and reward Jackson again. As far as techs go, I think it'll do fine. But for the majors (BP, BD, screenplay), I'm uncertain.

Catching up on your vids. Completely agree about The Raid, awesome movie. I like Mad Max a bit more than you, but as an Australian, it's pretty much mandatory. Still getting frustrated I see. Still getting frustrated I see. Still getting frustrated I see. You're not the only one repeating themselves. :) (just a lighthearted joke) But seriously, great job, now I'm going to watch your T2 vid. Like i said before, i'm actually kind of hoping you buy a film that you later find to be awful. Marmaduke on Blu Ray......... Totally recommend that! ;)

Had to come back to say, like your impersonation of Edward Furlong, made me laugh. Along with 'just a tiny bit better'.

Have you seen the Tarantino directed Jackie Brown and the Tarantino written True Romance? If so, I'm interested in your thoughts on both films.

Haven't seen Jackie Brown or True Romance, i've heard they're good though. Anyways, I'm picking up Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures on blu-ray tomorrow and will be posting a new video tomorrow. Thanks shane and if you could subscribe, that would be great! Thanks

The Indiana Jones: The Complete Collection is pretty good. Some people complained about the orange tint Raiders of the Lost Ark now has, but I personally don't care. It's not as bad or noticeable as the blue tint on the original Star Wars blu-rays. Excellent movies, I even liked Temple of Doom more than I did.

Three questions Conner.

1. What's the third poster on your wall, I can't quite make it out.

2. Will you have to upgrade your storage for Blu rays? The Iron Man 2 stand looks like it could run out quick.

3. Have you seen the 20 year Tarantino Blu Ray box setthat's coming soon? Pretty awesome cover art if you ask me.

Nice eye MysticSpoon, that is the Jurassic Park poster. And I know about the Iron Man 2 stan-dee! Haha, it's running out of space very quickly! I'll try to find some sort of shelf, but the ones that are in there now I'm gonna keep in there maybe.

I'm trying to decide on what I should go see tomorrow! Dredd or End of Watch? What do you guys think I should do?

I think End of Watch looks better, but I think you could go either way and have a good time. Dredd looks like fun.

Yeah. End of Watch got a 85% and Dredd got a 78% on rottentomatoes but honestly, what does rottentomatoes know? Haha, I'll tell you guys my final decision tomorrow.

Can't you see both? Personally, I would watch Dredd, because an action movie is best seen on the big screen. You may also want to see what people are saying about the 3d, it may help decide which to see.

Although End of Watch has action too, so makes it harder. You like The Raid, I've heard slight comparisons between it and Dredd, so maybe you'l like it. Hard choice!

I've heard 3D is pointless for Dredd, but I might have to see both this weekend, I didn't get a chance yesterday

Surprisingly, I've heard mixed things about the 3D in Dredd. Some say it was smart use of 3D, and others found it, like you said, pointless.
