Thanks for the kind words :) I wish I had seen many more movies like you but haven't had much of a chance. To me, LOTR is the best trilogy followed Toy Story, Star Wars and Back to the Future- I adore those series!

Me too! I've been a recent watcher of Hitchcock's movies, mainly after the movie 'Hitchcock' came out. I loved Psycho, found Rear Window to be the most amazing mystery film I ever saw and now I find North by Northwest EVEN BETTER! :)

The Silence of the Lambs is an awesome thriller, but I don't think it's the pinnacle of psychological films. I reckon Se7en is a lot better on different levels. The Green Mile is a great movie I used to visit all the time, it definitely needs a re-watch because I love the characters.

Hey great answer man. I personally enjoyed Silence of the Lambs but did NOT love it by any means. Se7en is one of my all time favorites and it certainly to me, is far superior in every way.

Thanks! I actually sometimes feel like something of a lightweight on here compared to some other Flickcharters. I'm 33 years old, but not very educated in films that are older than I am, and there are some users on here who have ranked twice as many (or more) films than I have. It's crazy!

Of course, I don't consider myself a big student of "film" or anything; I'm just a guy who likes movies.

I've watched 10 so far in 2013; on my second Flickchart account, MrKlan, I'm keeping track of just the films I saw this year.

If you thin you aren't a fan of movies, I can't take it seriously! You've seen a great deal of movies and I really like your top 10. I agree about Fellowship of the Ring. Boy its amazing. I feel to me, the Dark Knight is brilliant but may be overrated due to Heath Ledger's performance but I also heavily agree on Aliens! Great list of movies; look forward to seeing some.

You should try to watch the highest movies on your list of shame. I did that and I was surprised!

Btw, I have only seen 199 movies just about to start another Hitchcock classic as my 200th movie. I plan to watch more. As a child, I never got the opportunity to watch a lot of movies and since I'm still a teenager at school, I'll try to squeeze more movies in, hopefully to your extent one day ;)

One of those rare occasions where everything in a movie was just perfect. The soundtrack, the action, the characters, the quotability and the memorability.

I'm glad we share the same opinion when it comes to Jurassic Park.

Oh hell yea! The Matrix is perfected in everyway. That and T2 are my two favorite movies when LOTR is not included, the question is do I like Matrix more than T2? Yes, Jurassic Park is plain awesome, kickass music and characters, epic story, amazing visuals even after 20 years and breathtaking. I can't wait to catch its 3D release this year! To hear John Williams score in theatres, seeing the T-Rex attack the kids it will be the experience of my life! I'm glad we both also love Godfather, Star Wars, Batman etc!

Its nice to have someone on here with similar tastes in movies. The Lion King is the greatest animated movie of all time. On top of that there are two different scenes in the movie that make me lose my marbles and cry. Casablanca is a masterpiece. The cast for that movie was insane; Bogart, Bergman, Lorre,and Rains.

I finally went with Django and ditched The Master. It was okay, man. Good entertainment but I'm not overly impressed. The film is solid in the first half, still great when Calvin is introduced but becomes downright insufferable after King Schultz's death. I know this is a Tarantino film but there was just too much blood, or should I say too much unnecessary blood. I honestly cared more for Christoph's character than I did for Django.

Wouldn't rank it among QT's best films. And while I've yet to finish the Kill Bill series (saw only some parts), I suspect Vol. II is slightly better. Maybe I should've watched The Master :(

I wasn't all that impressed with The Master, it's too self indulgent and often forgets itself. But you would've liked it for sure, but I'm certain that it doesn't rank amongst PT's best films (Boogie Nights, TWBB, Magnolia (which I'm yet to see);

Don't worry it's still in my top 20, and probably won't be leaving anytime soon. I just found it weird to have all three Star Wars' films in my top 10, so I just picked the weakest of the trilogy.

And I'm not sure when I'll watch LOTR again, it's hard to say.

I might give The Conversation a re-watch in the near future, with a lot more attentiveness to detail and craftsmanship. I thought Gene Hackman was decent enough as well.

I am watching Jurassic Park 3D quite possibly tomorrow and I'm really amped for its release. Nostalgia is literally gonna be radiating off the screen.

You got to know something about me. I love over-the-top action movies! That's why 300, Shoot 'Em Up and Kick-Ass are in my top ten. Do I think they are the best movies of all time? Of course not, but they bring the entertainment that brings pure joy. But you will notice that I love classics like Taxi Driver, 12 Angry Men, The Godfather and The Treasure of Sierra Madre as well. My point is, I can enjoy a variety of genres.

As I said Kick-Ass is really over-the-top, I don't know if you like that. It does have elements of comedy also, so if you don't like the action, you may get a laugh or two. However, the movie is quite dark at times also. Really, the movie throws you around, you don't know what's coming. Some critics like movies consistenlty funny, or dark. But i enjoy not knowing what's coming.

I love Nic Cage when he's crazy, like he is in Kick-Ass. His action scene (along with the music) in the warehouse is one of my favourites in the movie, and he's hilariously channeling Adam West from the old batman tv show. But my favourite has to be Hit-Girl, she's a big reason why it's in my top ten.

I'm totally avoiding the trailer for Kick-Ass 2. I don't want to know ANYTHING walking in.

If you ever want to ask me anything else, don't hesitate.

If John Harrison can rival The Joker, then Into Darkness has a great chance to be very high on my list. I do love me a strong villain. :) That's another reason I like the batman movies, how bloody tough the villains make it for batman.

Does it look like I'm a crazy fanboy with two batman movies at the top? I always wonder that. Just so you know, I'm not, you're totally allowed to be disappointed with The Dark Knight Rises, because hey, all of it's subjective anyway. Do you agree?

That's why I don't understand all the crazy bickering on The Dark Knight vs The Avengers matchup.

I think the people involved with Star Trek Into Darkness have done their best to avoid saying what exactly Cumberbatch's role is in the movie. However, the more that's revealed about the film, the more it appears that he is not playing Khan. Personally, I'm good with whomever the main villain is. I just want to see the movie! :)

Yeah, he copied my comments multiple times, and every time I confront him with it, he apologizes and a couple of days later he starts copying my comments again. Not that it REALLY bothers me, but it does raise an eyebrow. I'm pretty sure he has some sort of autism or another mental disorder. He's 17 or 18 years old, but he has this bizarre way of talking. I basically trolled him, and he fell for it. I did not expect that. It seems like I scared him away, at least for now. I actually know him from YouTube. It's a long story, trust me ;)

When it comes to Inception, there's no villains, because the story is following the villains. Think about it, what has Cillian Murphy's character done to deserve what happens to him? Nothing. We root for them to succeed because that's who the movie invests time into, but for all their charm and likability, they're truly the villains.

You're right about the subconscious as well. I wouldn't call you an idiot. But if your looking for the villains that you can actually see, it's them. However, you could count Marion Cotillard's character as the face of his subconscious.

I think it's worth a watch, but to be honest, my score is flattering, I need to fix it. I think I ranked it so high because i enjoyed some of the visuals.. I won't tell you what I didn't like because that'll probably be in your head when it gets to that part. Who knows, you may love the scenes I'm talking about. My rating is probably closer to 60%.

Still thinking about the list. You can godamn wait! ;) Sometimes I think it would be funny to say all this stuff without emoticons. Then someone reading my comments would think I'm a maniac. Then they would look for your response, and you're completely nice. They would say, "Bloody defend yourself against this loser!!". What a weird thought. :)

Oh, well, I honestly have not much else to say about Kick-Ass, shane summed it up perfectly. I'll try.

Kick-Ass is one of the best superhero movies ever made. I know that's a strange thing to say nowadays, because most people see The Dark Knight as the best superhero around. But Kick-Ass has absolutely everything I want from a superhero movie: a menacing villain, a fantastic soundtrack, bloody over-the-top action, memorable characters, great performances, an origin story that doesn't overshadow the rest of the movie (I'm looking at you Batman Begins and Captain America), a dark tone, and more. It's actually one of the most realistic supehero movies ever made in my opinion. Well...realistic in some aspects. How the main character becomes Kick-Ass is the most realistic transformation into a superhero I've ever seen. No one zillion dollars and a shitload of gadgets, no bite from a radioactive spider, no radiation, none of that. That makes it so unique. Ofcourse the action scenes aren't realistic, but the motivations of the main character certainly are. The movie does have some small flaws, but overall, I absolutely adore it, and it's the movie I probably rewatch the most.

That's a short summary for you! ;)

I want to point out that Dead Heat and He'll Come to Frogtown will only work if you don't take them seriously at all.

I also want to say The warriors as well. It's from the 70's, but I had to write it.

I also always tell people to watch Vampire's Kiss. It's not an action movie, but if you like crazy over-the-top Nicolas Cage, then it's the king. Want to see Cage eat a live cockroach? Well you can if you want, the whole movie is on YouTube. But again, if you take it seriously, you won't enjoy it. I personally think it's amazing! It's one of my favourite comedies of all time. But I guess it depends on your sense of humour.

All very fair points. But I enjoy too much else about the film to have those parts kill it for me. I wouldn't of hated the twist if they were equals, but she treats him like her dog. However, I did enjoy that he was going to defy her orders and murder batman before catwoman intervened. It just makes me think that he could of had some input and it wasn't all Talia's plan. What I disliked more was how Talia died, it didn't look real at all!

You should watch how it should of ended take on The Dark Knight Rises on YouTube if you haven't already. They're just some short clips where they show what they would of changed to movies. The Hobbit is there as well.

Both Brando and De Niro give an amazing performance in my opinion. In all honesty though, I think I prefer De Niro's performance. Maybe I'm biased though because De Niro is on of my favorite actors and Brando isn't. Ha Ha. Anyways I'm glad to see you like Part II more than you did before, I actually just watched it yesterday and it has great rewatchability for me. I believe that was the 7th time that I have seen it.

Oh, and also I think Pacino gives one of the greatest performances of all time in Part II. He is another one of my favorite actors and that is probably his best performance. No disrespect to Brando cause he is truly amazing, but I slightly prefer De Niro and Pacino's performances to his.

The Godfather Part III is a great movie in my opinion. Sofia Coppola is the only thing in my opinion that holds it back from being as good as the first two. You should definitely watch it and tell me what you think about it.

I'm sure I'll get around to watching Casablanca someday because it is so loved. Ha Ha. Django Unchained is amazing, I've actually seen it 4 times, it is very rewatchable just like Tarantino's other films. I also noticed that Inglourious Basterds made quite the jump on your list, I'm glad to see you liked it this time around.

Django has so many great scenes, it's hard to pick just a few. Ha Ha. A couple of my favorites are: When they ride into Candieland, the last scene, and my favorite is probably the dinner scene. DiCaprio is amazing in that scene.

I am yet to see Prometheus in 3D... The thing that really drew me into it was probably the visual grandeur and the technical side of things. Apart from that the plot is a bit of a wreck and the characters are nothing special.

I think Thor is mediocre film. I thought the everything about it was one dimensional and the entire premise really didn't intrigue me at all. On the bright side of things I really enjoyed the action scenes and the one liners. Props to Chris Hemsworth who was really born to play Thor Odinson.

Inception is a truly brilliant film and I'm glad to see that it continues to climb up your list. In the first Godfather I love the opening scene, the horse scene, Sonny's death, Sonny beating up Carlo, The restaurant scene, the hospital scene, the baptism, and the final scene. As for Part II, the opening scene, every scene with De Niro, the abortion scene, Hyman Roth talking about Mo Greene, Michael and Fredo in the boathouse (your not a brother, not a friend), You broke my heart scene, and the last scene. To be honest though I love every scene in both films, but those are just some of my favorites off the top of my head.

Open you eyes! I'm a huge fan! ;) I enjoy the other movies greatly also! They're in the twenties on my list. The only reason they aren't higher is I wanted a bit of a mix up the top. What I mean is a few films in front of them I see on the same level, but I have them below to have a better variety. I think both are close to being in my top ten.

I feel the same about FOTR as you do. I'm thinking about it, and I've come to the conclusion that I enjoyed comradery much more when they were all together. I think I enjoyed the calm before the storm feel you get from the first film also. So when danger is upon them, you really feel the urgency. Especially from Gamdalf! I love how we watch the transformation from a happy old man, back to a battle-ready wizard.

I definitely get a 90's action vibe from Olympus has Fallen. Movies like Air Force One, Executive Decision, Under Siege and Broken Arrow come to mind. It's got many plot holes, but this isn't a movie to dwell on that, yet it still doesn't elevate it into amazing territory. It's still a decent movie, don't get me wrong. I hated Melissa Leo's acting in the movie, she seemed drunk at times.... Especially when reciting the pledge of allegiance. :D So ridiculous! I enjoyed Butler back in a movie that suits him. He had some one liners that were funny, but nowhere near the excellent Yipee kI yay motherfucker! It ended up at 75% on my list. You'd probably like it.

It's a little self aware like Expendables. But it does have some pretty horrible things that happen.

He didn't narrate......but he gave an inspirational speech. If you're not going to get narration, you can do worse than an inspirational speech from the man with the golden silk throat. :) Oh, his acting was alright. His part wasn't very challenging. But he did get angry at one stage, he showed who's boss!! :)

Mama is nothing special, but i think it was good at the start at not revealing much. Shadows and noises are effectively used to build tension. I just thought that the ending was a bit of a letdown. The motive seemed ridiculous, and I also found a huge plot hole as well. I also thought the cgi was poor. Don't get pumped for it, you're expectations won't be met. I may of been a little generous, but I thought the start was worth a decent score.

The next Rambo movies have crazy action.

The Man of Steel trailers are still not revealing much, so I don't have much of an opinion on them, other than that I'm intrigued. The buzz surrounding the movie has been very positive so far.

Hey, man!

Pulp Fiction was really, really disappointing. After I finished watching it for the first time, there was this sinking feeling inside that's hard to explain. I asked myself, "That's it?" Bunch of pointless conversations that don't reveal anything about the characters, that don't even move the story forward. And this is why RD will forever remain QT's best, imo. He shows a large degree of restraint in that flick. Including his kick-ass dialogue but also understanding that he has limited time (and budget) to tell an awesome story. PF is full-on Tarantino, which I don't see as a good thing. I know you love the film and I respect your opinion, but I just don't feel the same way :(

Of course, I also grew up with RD but saw PF only recently, which is shocking because Pulp has always been the bigger pop culture phenomenon. That makes a difference, doesn't it? Dogs is closer to my heart. It's lean, slim, minimal -- the kind of tightly structured storytelling I admire.

For what it's worth, I found the "Gold Watch" segment brilliant.

Interesting how you initially didn't enjoy Pulp but it's now positioned at no. 4 after repeat viewings. I wish I was as forgiving as you. Once I find a film's first viewing underwhelming, it's pretty difficult for me to give it another chance. By your comment on the Raiders page, it seemed you didn't like it that much. But again, you've got it within your top 10!

I'll surely give PF another chance.

Well, I don't think about soundtracks too often to be honest. But I really love The Dark Knight when that music is building and building because the Joker is coming. Star Wars would be up there, also Lord of the Rings jumps to mind, love that music. Terminator 2 would be up there, along with Inception. Except that everybody is copying it now! every trailer now bwooooooorahhhhhaaaaaa!!! bwoooorahhhaaaaaaa!!! They're gonna kill it! Oh, The Untouchables! I love the opening music! That's all I can think of at the moment, what about you? I think if I had to pick one that consistantly was amazing for me, it would be LOTR.

I love all three of them as well, but what I felt when return of the king ended i didn't feel for any other movie, I felt like i came back from long journey with Frodo and Sam, I felt something special. Plus it had the most epic battle that i have ever seen. I could also put the other two in my top twenty, but It just didn't feel right. I wish I could put the lord of the rings TRILOGY as my number 5.

I do love that era of cinema, it's just when watching The Third Man I felt kind of distracted, because it was on a laptop, but the next viewing will certainly give it a boost, I'm sure of it ;).

I see you've grown fond of Raiders. It finally cracked your top 10.

I have a few soundtracks that I love. Personally I would have to say Street Fighter, Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained, Jackie Brown, Reservoir Dogs. It's an area I certainly need to cover A$AP.

Iron Man 3 is a disappointment. The plot twist made the film downright stupid and the one liners get a bit dry. But the most damning thing of all, would be how they bring tension to the screen and then use that as fuel for a joke. Yeah, that really got on my nerve.

I just recently saw Star Trek Into Darkness, and I thought it was a pretty solid sequel, nothing special but still an entertaining film overall.

I am amped for the release of The Hobbit 2 and I am interested in Man of Steel but it has potential to be a flop.

Star Trek is amazing, isn't it!? Chris Hemsworth at the start is so memorable for me. A small part, but really great performance in my opinion. Plus it was a big shock to see the guy from Home and Away in a blockbuster!

Next week I'll watch Into Darkness. You might get another commentary from the cinemas if the lights are up at the start. :) I still have avoided the trailers.

I haven't seen all the old Trek films, so Scotty in the new film didn't bother me. I actually don't think any character bothered me. Oh, Eric Bana's character could of been a little better, as you said.

Hemsworth tried for the lead, he must of been the second choice to still feature in the movie. I could watch a whole movie of just his character! But I'm glad it went down how it did (keeping it vague for other people). It just let the character shine.

Spring Breakers is full-on! Definitely not what I expected! I have it high for now, but it might go down. James Franco is the easy highlight of the movie.

I haven't seen Rambo out of the cinemas, so I would have to see it again to judge it again. It could drop, I don't know. I know what you mean about seeing movies anywhere, I'm the same really, but like I said, I have only seen Rambo in the cinemas.

It says 2012 because that's when it was released in America.

In my opinion The Place Beyond the Pines has a weak third story, nowhere near as good as the first two. It's a long movie, and they left me feeling bored by the third story. I actually had a hard time keeping my eyes open. They should of expanded the first two parts, then had that part be about 15 to 20 minutes.

I did see Star Wars as a kid on VHS. But I don't really think I have a nostalgic connection to the movies. They're just great movies, simple as that.

I'm a bit wait and see on both movies to be honest. They try to make Pacific Rim feel like a Transformers movie from the music in the trailer. But the film could be the opposite.

I think you did, but I'll answer again. :) No, I haven't seen any of the new trailers for Man of Steel, I don't intend to either. I won't be for Sin City 2, Kick-Ass 2 and Elysium as well.

The Cabin in the Woods in a lot of fun SLC! I avoided every detail for that movie, and now it's way up on my list.

West went from somewhere in the 80's to 38 and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly went from 23 to 12. All of Leone's films get better with each new viewing for me.

The thing is, I don't like Superman that much. He's too powerful. They need to raise the stakes more in his movies. I love that there's no krypnonite in this movie. It always ends up being someone who isn't a match for him having to resort to waving a rock around in front of his face.

I like most of Zack Snyder's film, so I'm very excited. Plus the movie has Zod, so the stakes will definitely be there.

Wonder what it would do to a person if you ate too much super cow meat?

If you don't mind me asking, why do you have to get up at 5am for school? Long way away?

I totally feel what your saying about some teachers. I've had some terrible ones as well. Because i'm a very tall guy, one teacher used to think I was a bully from seeing an incident out of context. I was joking around shaking a guy from my class, not serious at all, then I looked up and saw her looking at me from the distance. I already knew I was in trouble. I went into the computer room and was talking to my friends. I kept peeking out, and she just kept coming! She was like 30 metres away, but she was going very slow. Ha! Then the bell rang! I had to go out, just as she met me at the door. She looked at me angrily, I said "look", and before I could get anything else out she was abusing the shit out of me! I didn't get one word in so I could defend myself. What a bitch. From then on when I went past she would yell stuff to me in German, which I later learnt meant, warning. Weird.

Well, I buy the movies I know I like. I record many movies on my foxtel (it currently has 5% available space) and when i watch a movie with my brother-in-law, he downloads it. That's how I saw the 'classic' Manborg.

I love me some violence, so to see how violent Watchmen was for a superhero movie, was a delight. But I actually was lukewarm towards it when i first watched the movie in the cinema. The second time I had a lot more fun watching The Comedian and Rorschach. I actually love slow-mo action scenes and just the overall aesthetic Of the movie. It looks like a comic book come to life. Some things annoy me, but I'll tell you if you see it. Don't want anything to stick out as annoying for you straight away.

The humor was alright, a little kiddie, but they were the key audience anyway. I'm absolutely unapologetic (not saying you were attacking me about it) about my love for that movie. It's a 9/10 for me. Absolutely great Australian-American movie.

Sucker Punch is so tame, SLC. It's only rated M. The highlight was how the opening was shot. It looked great. The action is good, but it's storyline is ridiculous. If this was MA15+, I think I would of enjoyed it more. And don't get me started on the ''dance'' scenes, just stupid. You'll know what I mean if you see it. I still have the extended cut of Sucker Punch, I should give it a watch to see if it's better.

Hm. Greatest films of all time? I'd have to say Star Wars, The Godfather I and II, Pulp Fiction, Shawshank, and maybe a few others. All of those films are important to cinema.

I recently rewatched the Lord of the Rings Trilogy (extended versions of all 3 films) and I liked Return of the King the most and was disappointed by the other 2. The first time I watched the trilogy (theatrical versions of all 3 films) I was blown away by Fellowship. Which version of all 3 films do you prefer? Also I would recommend that you watch The Thin Red Line and Road to Perdition. Some of the most underrated films in history if you ask me. For the Thin Red Line I would recommend to be open-minded (the movie is not for everyone) and if you like what you see, the movie becomes an experience. For Road to Perdition, probably my favorite of the decade. They are both uploaded in 1080p on Yify's website. What film would you recommend to me? (I also just downloaded Raging Bull) I also really love your list and it's variety of movies. I really have to watch Terminator 2 again because I watched the version that is on Yify and I was really bored and disappointed. Is that the best version or should I download another version, and if yes, which one?

That's great that you're really into watching films now! This site is really good for finding hidden gems too :)

I really like Superman 1 & 2, but 3 & 4 really weren't up to scratch.
I'm avoiding trailers and promos for Man Of Steel, just like I avoided the Into Darkness trailers(I loved Into Darkness too).

As for Star Wars and LOTR, I need to revisit them and re-evaluate how I feel about them. With SW, I don't remember enough about them, and maybe I shouldn't have ranked them when they came up on the screen. I might have watched LOTR when I wasn't in the right mood. I found that it kinda dragged and I was waiting for it to end....but I might love it if I watch it again, so I'll put it on my rewatch list. :)

The Goonies is another nostalgic favourite, I can't count how many times I've seen it, I could probably quote the whole movie, lol.

I will hopefully be seeing Django soon, can't wait :)

I give all movies a fair go until I see reasons otherwise. As soon as I saw Smith say 'animals have evolved to kill humans', despite no humans being on the planet! my expectations dropped really low.

The who.e Django thing just reveals his ego. The weird thing is his son is the lead in After Earth! I guess then that Smith only makes way for another Smith. All of this has made me think less of him.

I think it would of been interesting to Smith try something different other than the usual blockbusters. But if this a sign of Smith doing the same all the time, then I think people will soon b turning away. I really wouldn't be surprised if he pushes for a fast-tracked Men in Black 4 or Bad Boys 3, so to try and remind people why they 'like' him.

Hey I see that you saw Mean Streets, what did you think of the film and Robert Deniro's performance? I think the film is great as the first collaboration between Scorsese and Deniro, he stole the show in every scene, and Harvey Keitel is awesome, I laughed my ass off with that "If the queen had b*lls..." joke. I also think that the Keitel-Deniro pairing in this film may be my favorite duo in the world. They have such amazing chemistry. Also what is your favorite male-male duo?

I had to close my eyes and cover my ears in Fast 6 because they were playing the trailer. I saw the start, how it's all static, because I thought it was a horror movie. As soon as I heard it was Michael Shannon, I moved quick!

If you do plan to watch the Fast and Furious movies, avoid spoilers for the end of six! It wouldn't be as satisfying if you knew what or whom was coming. :)

We're late with movies, and they hate showing horror movies like The Cabin in the Woods and Evil Dead, which both had a really limited release.

Some Fast and Furious movies aren't great. I haven't seen part three, but I think I'll go back and watch it because the last movie links them all together quite nicely (not a spoiler) Because the events in the third movie (Tokyo Drift) actually happen after four, five and six. I would rank them like this: 5, 6, 1, 4 and 2.

The movie definitely isn't a masterpiece, it has some flaws in the pacing department but I still would call it great. Also Jeff Bridges-John Goodman (The Big Lebowski)
Clint Eastwood-Eli Wallach (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly)
Bruce Willis-Samuel L. Jackson (Die Hard With a Vengeance)
Chris Pine-Zachary Quinto (Star Trek)
Morgan Freeman-Brad Pitt (Se7en). So many great duos.Also Casino and Heat are great. Casino is so underrated.

Not much to do about it, but it's very frustrating when you start thinking about it. What I hate more is when we don't get big movies in the cinemas like Evil Dead and The Cabin in the Woods. Well, three cinemas, but that's nothing. Australia really seem like they don't like releasing horror movies.

I actually don't understand the thinking of delaying Man of Steel. The reason would probably annoy me. The only thing the only thing I can think of is if a movie studio has another movie out, so they aren't competing with themselves.

Yeah, the same with Blu Rays. I think there is a rule about how long a movie is out of the cinema before it's gets released. So if America gets it in the cinema, it will always be ahead with Blu Rays. It sucks, I know.

Have you seen the trailer for The Cabin in the Woods? It would be better if you haven't, like me, and watch it without no knowledge of the movie.

In a perfect world, yes, it would be great to get movies like that in the cinema. But the fact is they need longer to make the budgets back. With that system, the movies would have dated special effects. With two weeks, the cinemas wouldn't make any money either. In the first two weeks, the studios take the majority of the money. It's in the following weeks where they take a share of the movie tickets. If they didn't, we'd see even higher prices for snacks and drinks.

What I would prefer is to be less 3d movies. Unless they're in proper 3d, it shouldn't be allowed. When you look what's at the cinema, sometimes it's only about four movies that are in 2d and 3d. All these studios wonder why 3d is declining! It's because they keep releasing a shit product! For every Life of Pi and Avatar, you get twice as many post-converted shit like Clash of the Titans and The Green Hornet.

Gattaca is a pretty good movie. We watched it in Religion, because our latest topic is: morals and ethics.

Believe it or not I am amped for Man of Steel, I am avoiding all reviews of it, so I can create my own perception about the film. I know for a fact it wont be better than The Dark Knight or The Avengers, but it has a strong chance of coming close.

Commando kicks ass. Just one of those re-watchable 80's movies, but in terms of the best Arnold film: PRedator is the pinnacle.

It's fine if Watchmen doesn't work for you now, or later. Do you have any questions about any if it?

You might have to learn to be a bit calmer with trailers, if I'm honest with you. It's only going to have you get burnt on a number of occasions in the future. When I watch a trailer, if I like it, I say to myself- "yep I'll see that", and put it out of my brain. Or as you know, I won't watch it at all, but that's really to avoid spoilers.

Actually, I have a question for you. Where on your list does the movies start being good to you? Because Watchmen seems quite high on your list, yet you don't like it. I'm just interested.

Hey. :)

All I hear about is that the ROTK has too many endings, that it's terrible. It really didn't bother me at all! With so many characters, how could you just have one ending?

It's between Gandalf and Aragorn as my favourite. I might be leaning towards Gandalf. But Sam in ROTK is right up there as well.

For me:

"YOU, SHALL NOT, PASS!!!" and "fly, you fools!"
Gollum vs Smeagol
I really like when Aragron says "For Frodo". As well as "You don't bow to no one"

I've probably seen the three movies all the way through about three times each (including the Blu Ray extended versions) However, I have watched the film many times in random places when it's been on foxtel.

I wasn't very impressed with the Mandarin twist either. But listen to the way The Mandarin delivered lines, he's totally hamming it up. I think Kingsley intentionally played him as a bad actor. But when you really think about it, The Mandarin is still in the movie, it's just not who people expected. Plus making Killian the Mandarin brings in the backstory from the start of the movie. I see why it didn't work for you, though. But if I may say, i think you should at least give it one more shot in a few months. Knowing what you know (The Mandarin is Killian) watch it to see if works for you the next time.

I enjoyed how much he was out of his suit too. Having to use his brain to fight the enemies.

I really didn't like Iron Man 2. So I was happy when the movie had a unique spin on the superhero movie. Did you see it? What a waste of Mickey Rourke that movie was!

I saw the trailer, and one bit got me more excited than it should of. You know Tony's big suit at the end? Well, I thought that was the Hulk in his own suit. I think that would of been awesome.

Yeah, some of them are real. But I think all of them should of been real except for a bird's eye view of an army, that I would understand. I think the LOTR goblins are far scarier as well! Looking at the Hobbit goblins, they don't have the same menace to them. You don't see the blackness in them.

Yeah, but I think kids can handle a bit of darkness and scary parts. I think it's the parents who worry too much about that. A movie like The Hobbit isn't going to mentally scar kids. I remember movies I like as a kid had scary elements to them.

I like that you're are showing some resolve to not watch the second Hobbit trailer.

I just wanted to tell you a way the movie could work for you. Because every movie should be attempted to be like. I'm not saying you didn't do this, but I'm just trying to help you like it more. If you still don't like it after, that's fine.

To be honest, I never even thought about that with Pepper. All I was thinking was that it was obvious that she wasn't dead.

I also like the fact that in this movie it wasn't a guy in a suit vs a guy in a suit. I think if that happened, it would of started to feel a bit stale.

I loved the fight when he's only got the hand and foot on. I thought that was a great idea from Black.

I hated the goblin king, or whatever he was. He had such a stupid death. What was the line? Well anyway, his line was stupid as well. Something like "I'm dead". Plus he had balls for a chin. :)

Yeah, Man of Steel is a very good film, but it isn't perfect. Also, you are correct TTT and Kill Bill Vol. 2 did move up. I have been watching my favorite trilogies in the last couple of weeks and I decided that I like ROTK more than ROTJ. Also Lord of the Rings moved past Star Wars as my second favorite trilogy (behind Batman).

Honestly, I'll probably like Man of Steel better after another viewing, but my first viewing did leave me disappointed. A few reasons for that include:

- I didn't like the way the story was structured. The nonlinear way it was put together just didn't, for lack of a better word, flow.

- The plot line involving the Codex was a bit convoluted. This is something that will likely not bother me in my next viewing (since I now know what it is and what its implications are).

- Every villain, aside from General Zod, was either anonymous or semi-anonymous. The movie needed some more well-defined villains.

- Michael Shannon disappointed me as General Zod. Since Superman is such an inherently bland character, it is up to the villain(s) to provide the personality of the film. Gene Hackman did it, as did Terence Stamp. Hell, even Kevin Spacey did in that other disappointing Superman flick. In my eyes, Shannon just didn't "bring it." He was too reserved, too one-note. I just didn't like the performance.

- The action in the movie was too monotonous and uncreative. The fight between Zod and Superman was basically just the guys taking turns ramming each into/through walls and stuff. Not exactly Batman versus the Joker.

On the plus side, I thought Henry Cavill acquitted himself well, as did Kevin Costner and Diane Lane. I think now that this franchise has gotten all of the origin story out of the way, the sequel(s) have the potential to be great. I guess we'll see.

Totally frustrating for you, I understand. But personally, once I found out who the real Mandarin was, I just transferred my feelings for the original Mandarin onto him. He was still doing what the original Mandarin was doing, even more so really. Lurking in the shadows, not showing his true face.

I really enjoyed it as a kid but err... somehow I don't remember much about the story. The opening chase is still fresh in my memory but the rest of the stuff is sorta blurry. Haven't rewatched it as much as Raiders and Last Crusade. Just coincidental that and not quite a conscious decision on my part. I guess I was hanging on to fond memories when I posted that comment. I'll rewatch it soon. Maybe it'll still impress me, maybe it won't (my tastes have changed a lot over the years). We'll find out!

As you may have seen from my list, Fellowship is considerably ahead and TTT and RotK are about in the same range. I really love the scenes at the Shire. Such peaceful and scenic beauty. It makes the coming journey worth the hardships and sacrifices. Also makes Fellowship the most distinguishable of all three. Two Towers and King are too dark and dreary but they are also extremely entertaining. The battle in the former is epic and well directed, and the Mount Doom scenes in the latter are some of the most dramatically intense scenes in film. It's a great trilogy. I'd go into further detail but I'm really drowsy right now :D

Have you heard the story of why Flickchart was made? Apparently the guys who started it saw that Pulp Fiction was higher than the Empire Strikes Back on IMDb's top 250 and they wanted to see what people really thought or something like that. It's a pretty interesting story. You can see it on Wikipedia.

Hey, Dinelka. :)

Liking the quote. :)

I can't get enough of The Joker! What an amazing performance from Ledger.

Well, The Joker is unpredictable, he probably wanted to make Batman squirm. It's all a joke to him, so he probably just thought it was hilarious to drop her.

Two Face buckling up was enough for me. The guy survived having half his face burnt of, I think it's possible for him to survive a car crash. I just think the anger felt by two face keeps driving him from dying.

I take it down to the fact that The Joker really doesn't like rats in suits. Think back to that Asian man that he said would squeal. Plus I think that The Joker wanted to reveal the identity himself, not some other guy- that's why He wanted Coleman Reese killed. You could also look at it like this- The Joker might not even care about the identity of Batman, he just likes to turn people against him, which he's successful at doing. Also, if Batman is revealed, Joker's fun is over! He wants to keep the 'game' going.

Hey, apologies for the late reply. I'm really bad at checking comments on my profile.

Took me about three weeks after it opened to finally see Star Trek Into Darkness. I have it ranked #7 out of the 12 feature films, which means I think it's the weakest of the ones that are genuinely good.

Like Star Trek '09, though, I expect it to grow on me.

The best things about it? Both Cumberbatch and Weller rocked their roles.

The worst? Everything that was supposed to read "homage" screamed "ripoff". Still, it's an interesting effort.

I noticed you haven't seen any Nicolas Cage movies other than Ant Bully.

This is how I classify him. If he get a good script, or a great part, he's awesome. But he does go for the pay cheque quite a bit, so that's when he's bad. He actually was in trouble with money a few years ago- he had to sell his castle! :D

The good: Birdy, Raising Arizona, Wild at Heart, Leaving Las Vegas, Red Rock West, Bringing Out the Dead, The Family Man, Adaptation, Matchstick Men, Lord of War, Kick-Ass, Vampire's Kiss, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call- New Orleans (last two great for how crazy he is)

The bad: Zandalee (although some of it's great for his crazy acting :D) Amos & Andrew, Deadfall, (I haven't seen it, but I know it's bad but I want to see it because he acts crazy) Trapped in Paradise, City of Angels, Captain Corelli's Mandolin, Windtalkers, National Treasure 1 and 2(although, some people love them), The Wicker Man (but he does punch people in a bear suit :D), Ghost Rider 1 and 2, Next, Bangkok Dangerous, Season of the Witch, Knowing, Seeking Justice, Trespass and 8mm.

Action: I can't say good or bad acting in these movies, I just know which movies I like and dislike. Face/Off (good) Con Air (good, in a cheesy way) The Rock (good) Snake Eyes (bad) Gone in Sixty Seconds (alright)

Hey, Dinelka

I wouldn't be running out to see Monsters Uni because it's been a very divisive movie. Personally, I was in the mood for something that was an easy watch and gave me a few laughs- it delivered greatly. I think it helped the score because I was in a very good mood today as well. I think it's 10%(I'm going on what you said! :D) less is because I missed the persons of the kid from the first movie. She provided the heart of the movie.

More importantly........I saw Man of Steel! :) I really loved the movie! Although, it did have a few parts that annoyed me. I'll let you kick off the spoiler discussion. Make sure to give a warning. :)

The movie is a bit before your time in my profile pic, it's Dennis the Menace. Kate and I were talking about it the other day. We both watched it many times as kids. The discussion just brought back fond memories. That's why I changed it from Benedict Cumberbatch.

"Furious" is extreme.

There was no reason for Cumberbatch to be Khan other than the fact that they wanted to remake Star Trek II. That said, it's not bad for a remake.

I know it's going to be like the '09 Trek, and it will only grow on me on repeat viewings.

Don't expect anything amazing for Dennis the Menace, it's just a movie you don't take seriously so you can have a laugh. Christopher Lloyd is great as the villain. Some of the things that happen to him made me laugh so much as a kid! :D

I'm going to buy The Devil Rides Out Blu Ray with Christopher Lee! :) I think you'll like that pick. :)

I'm also buying The Little Girl Who Live Down the Lane. It stars Martin Sheen and a young Jodie Foster. I think she might of murdered someone by the sound of it.

They do free podcast every week, then they do premium eps that you can listen to for the minimum cost of 99 cents. I've never listened to any of them. I just go through iTunes to listen to the free eps. They must be on the site as well.

You can't watch Film Junk, it's just audio. :) I actually love the length. It gives them time to relax and go in tangents. The three of them(used to be four, he was asked to leave) are very different people. I found out about so many movies that I've never heard of because of this podcast

I loved every second of Django Unchained- that's what I thought about it. :) 10/10.

No holidays for me, I'm too old. :)

Some of Pixar's shorts are awesome, like Presto. :)

The only thing I didn't like about Django was Tarantino's Aussie accent. :) Still 10/10.

I enjoyed World War Z quite a bit. I'd give it an 8/10. One female zombie was the creepiest thing I've seen in a movie for some time.

The Godfather is one of those movies that I can kind of appreciate as being a good film, yet didn't really find myself hooked by. I had a similar kind of reaction to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Back to Star Trek Into Darkness (spoilers)...

The aping of all the scenes from The Wrath of Khan didn't really work for me, in this sense: The emotional impact is not the same, because you KNOW that Chris Pine will be standing at the end of the movie. (Of course, it's fully foreshadowed by the dead tribble, too.)

YET, Kirk's sacrifice works very well in terms of the arc for his character. I did love how Into Darkness came straight out of the previous film, where Kirk had his ridiculously meteoric rise to the captain's chair.

In this film, he does actually EARN his captaincy, and the sacrifice is part of that. So, in that way, it works. It's just not as emotionally effective as TWOK (even knowing now, in hindsight, that Spock comes back for the next movie).

Cumberbatch does an amazing performance as Khan, but the character himself has no real presence, because his history is so glossed over, and really, there's no reason he couldn't have been just anyone. So why is a guy named Khan Noonien Singh suddenly British?!

As I say, the movie is likely to grow on me. I did have a thorough amount of fun.

Oh, and besides containing possibly the last great performances that De Niro and Pacino have ever given (of course, De Niro was Oscar nominated for Silver Linings Playbook, but I haven't seen it yet), Heat contains the single greatest action sequence I have ever seen put to film.

It's worth it just for that one scene in the middle. I still get shivers.

It was mesmerising this time around. It's very riveting and you feel invested in its characters. The making of the film makes it all the more better as well. But I insist you view it on Blu-Ray (if you haven't done so) because it truly is one of the greatest buys.

Oh, you heard your first Reed Farrington ep! :D He's weird, but he grows on you. Reed Farrington is actually his podcast persona- his real name is Gerry Eng. If you feel like trying to understand him, listen to the Cantankerous(not many eps to listen to) podcast. It's Jay and Sean asking Reed a bunch of questions. You could also look Reed up on YouTube to see how he lives. Jay filmed him in his house! :D He's very strange. With Star Trek, you got to understand that he's a HUGE Star Trek fan(you'll see if you watch the YouTube vids), his whole life revolves around Star Trek.

Hopefully they grow on you a bit. :) For me, Film Junk feels like a proper conversation with friends. Other podcasts feel more like radio- loud and dumb. They have some laughs, though.

I see that you didn't care much for A Bug's Life. I admit that most of my love for it probably comes from nostalgia. A Bug's Life along with Toy Story 1 and 2 have been with me for as long as I can remember. Toy Story came out the year before I was born, ABL when I was 2, and TS2 when I was 3. Monsters Inc. is the first Pixar film that I remember seeing in theaters (I was 5) though I probably saw Bug's Life and Toy Story 2, but I don't remember. So yeah, A Bug's Life has a lot of nostalgia going for it. Ha Ha

As I'm sure you know, Tarantino is my favorite director and honestly I love all 8 of his films. I actually have had a few Tarantino marathons the most recent one being at the end of May. So it will probably be a couple months before my next one. I have been watching my favorite film series's since the beginning of June. I have watched Star Wars, Batman, Middle Earth, and now the Pixar films. After I'm done with Pixar I'll being watching some of my favorite Disney animated films like The Lion King, Aladdin, and Mulan.

I think from looking at the votes that I'm confident in the movies at the top, so no need to rank them. If I recall, movies like Rambo(yes, I remember you hate it :D) and stuff like that have heaps of votes because I keep swaying on it.

I did hear the podcast, I listen to the eps as soon as I can. I even went back and listened to al the old eps. One ep Jay gets angry because he keeps failing his license(they have to re-do driving tests in Canada after a certain amount of years) when his 82 year old grandma passed! :D Hilarious! liked World War Z's style. It's turned the zombie on it's head to have it more like a action adventure movie. I found it very tense at the end as well.

I did laugh at MU, but most of the time I just had a smile on my face. For me, I'm more forgiving than the Film Junk boys for movies like this(especially Jay). Who knows, it might not hold up on re-watch, but at the moment I thought it was good. Was it you I told that I was in a great mood that day? That could of been helpful for the movie. Oh, I didn't even think about how the characters changed. That might annoy me on re-watch.

What MU conversation going to change into?! :D

JC13 has talked to me a couple times, but YOU!! You're always bugging me. :D Do I have to say I'm kidding? I hope you know. :)

I doubt my top ten as well, but, I want it to be for sure if I move a movie from there. It's fine how you do it as well, I just have a different tactic. :)

Sorry to disappoint, but I don't think I would make a YouTube channel. What happened with Conner's channel? He seemed to of stopped doing it.

Why do you keep calling it PG-13 like you're American? :) We have to talk about World War Z after you see it. There is still deaths, still violence, but it's off camera a bit, you just don't get the money shots of gore. What it's much better at is action and tension, compared to other zombie movies

I was worried for a second, but I'm glad you were kidding. :D You know I think you're Aussie anyway from my previous comments. But you've got to be careful talking about race, saying it in the wrong way will get you in the shit. That's cool you can speak another language. Do you sound right? Or do you sound like an Aussie trying to speak it? :)

Yep, I'm in my 20's, but I never watched Siskel and Ebert.

I don't mind De Niro in Jackie Brown because he playing a character that's nothing like what he usually plays in these crime movies. He's usually the slick, level headed crim with a plan. So I found it interesting to see him play an idiot.

Tarantino loves Blaxploitation movies! It was inevitable that he made his own version. But I agree, it's strange that he got the story from a novel.

I like it a bit more than you, I'd give it a 9/10. It's also not my least favourite Tarantino movie- that would be Death Proof.

Well I hope you have fun with all your marathons as well. As for Jackie Brown I love it, but I didn't the first time I saw it. It was on my second viewing that I fell in love with it. The same goes for Death Proof. Compared to his other six films they aren't as good, but if you just watch them without having huge expectations or comparing them to his other films I find them a lot more enjoyable. Have you seen Death Proof?

Oh, and to answer your question about Tarantino and Django Unchained. When he was describing what the African American was doing, he'd call them the 'n' word. For example, 'the 'n' word walked into the bar to have a drink. The only thing I can think of was that he was writing it that way to inspire him to how racist it was back then. It's still looks pretty bad!

Fun, isn't the word for The Paperboy by the look of it so far. It seems like it's going to be a very weird and disturbing movie. Hopefully in a good way.

What's your thoughts on the planned sequel to Finding Nemo, Finding Dory?

I have only seen Man of Steel once. I watched Once Upon a Time in the West for the 4th time and it has moved up every time I have watched it. Shawshank moved up over 100 places believe it or not. Ha Ha. I loved it the first time, but this time it was so much better.

What did you think of Reed on the Star Trek ep?

I can see The Simpsons lasting still for another five to ten years. It's too big to get cancelled easily. Just in merchandise alone they would make a huge fortune.

I think many movies on imdb around the 6 mark are quite good. It's when they're in the low five's and less when they truly have nothing to offer.

I'd love an Incredibles 2 sequel! But ONLY if the original team were involved.

Disbelief because some parts were pretty gross to be honest. :D I turned it off for a bit(watching the movies in pieces). But I think I may still end up enjoying the movie. I've enjoyed every Matthew McConaughey for the last three years. Why wasn't he in movies like this all the time!? I'll be very interested to see how he goes as the lead in Nolan's Intersteller.

It's nothing like Darabont's two prison movies, but I still love it. Thomas Jane is in a mall when a mist appears, containing creatures trying to kill them. I personally love the movie. It feels like a 50's monster movie. In fact, The Mist DVD allows you to watch the movie in black and white. Darabont originally wanted the movie to be released to the cinemas like this, but the studio didn't want it. Just so you know, the movie isn't for everyone. The ending alone is, I can't say! But it would annoy quite a few people. Not I! :)

I love the plots for both movies! But I think it's because they're more like Star Wars. I personally am not a fan of the old Star Trek show, which I found quite boring. If they enjoy all that stuff, I sort of see why they dislike the new movies.

It still doesn't stop Reed collecting the new Spock's cereal box and other stuff like that! :D

Less so lately. I'm older than you, so I've seen the old eps of The Simpsons countless times. But I'll watch an ep if I see it's on. It usually on the weekend when they do those huge marathons in the morning.

Shaun was really boring and unfunny. I can't stress enough on "unfunny". An important thing to note is that it's extremely unfunny. I don't think it's a question of me not understanding British humor. It's just that Simon Pegg is so horribly unfunny. His attempts at comedy in Ghost Protocol were painful as well. If you're looking for a good zombie-comedy, I'd recommend Zombieland.

Only TTT and RotK have moved up places on my chart. Fellowship retained its original position. Yeah, I've always preferred LotR to SW.

The only way you'd annoy me is if you insult me as a person, which I hope you wouldn't do.

There is as many people who love the ending of The Mist as there is people who dislike it. I understand why they don't like it, but it's a welcome change to normal Hollywood movies. I can't say much, but you'll see what I mean when you see it. :)

I must have about 10 to 15 new movies in my top 50. :)

I'm a huge Viggo Mortensen fan. LotR was awesome in its own way, but his presence would really cheer up my spirits. He's not there in The Hobbit so I'm not very enthusiastic for it. Will probably see it soon, though.

I've discussed TDKR extensively on message boards and I assure you, there are no plot holes. Some scenes require you to suspend disbelief big time, but nothing contradicts the storyline. For example, sending the entire Gotham police underground is dumb, but not a plot hole. I know you didn't mean to refer to them when you mentioned "flaws". Just something I wanted to point out to you.

I hear Prometheus is full of plot holes lmao. Is this true, or is Prometheus also a victim of nitpicky criticisms like TDKR? I'm bugging you 'cause I was just gifted the Prometheus blu-ray. Wanna get a good idea about what all to expect.

Then you have no reason to worry about what I'm going to say about anything you're worried about. Did you get me? It's just so you know you don't have to think if something will annoy me. So if any of my comments seem annoyed with you, don't read into them much, I'm just being farcical.

For example, You're gonna watch The Mist tonight!!!!!!!! Would not be taken seriously. :D

You've got to go into more details about your hate for Lock Stock. I'm curious to know. Have you seen other similar movies like Rocknrolla, Snatch, Revolver and Layer Cake?

Straight to number 2 for TDKR! :D It may look like a fanboy move, but I'm not into that shit. I genuinely love it, despite the flaws(that I totally see). I'll get into that later(maybe tomorrow?).

Man, I've got to give you credit, you come up with questions I've never thought of. Nice work. :) Haha, no Joker eh!! :D you just made it an even race! :D

What your thoughts on Empire Strikes Back falling out of my top ten?

The Dark Knight- Haha! I'm tempted to say William Fichtner! I love his small part as the gangster bank manager! :D But, I'll say Gary Oldman.

The Dark Knight Rises- Tie between Bale and Hardy. I love Hardy's physical performance. He s'mores so much considering you can't see his mouth.

300- Gerard Butler, easy. :)

FOTR- Ian Mckellen

Kick-Ass- Ooh! Shit, Dinelka! I'll have to go for Chloe Grace Moretz, but Nicolas Cage is right on her heels.

Shoot 'Em Up- Clive Owen, but Paul Giamatti plays an awesome villain.

Star Wars- Harrison Ford

Shawshank Redemption- Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman. I can't split them up! They come as a duo in my opinion. ;)

Two Towers- Ian Mckellen

Taxi Driver- Robert De Niro(obviously!)

I'm saying more about for future comments because I want it to be an open dialogue between us without worries, do you get me? All I'm saying is you can question any decisions I've made (bad in your eyes) without worrying about an angered response. I would like the same the other way. What do you think?

Something has to give, but it's so very close between the top 20 that it's so very minor the change.

Dumb and Dumber was a HUGE change. I have watched that movie so much! I can nearly quote the whole movie(not even kidding), and I still find it funny. So a movie like this really should be up high. You'll notice that Dredd, Vampire's Kiss,The Raid, Drive, District 9, 12 Angry Men, The Treasure of the Sierre Madre, In Bruges, My Left Foot, Schindler's List, The Green Mile,Looper, Iron Man 3(yes I know what your thinking), Star Trek and Into Darkness are some of the movies that made some big moves.

I thought Maggie Gyllenhaal was an upgrade on Katie Holmes. She really didn't bother me to be honest.

Bro, I detested Bane's death as well. But upon thinking further, it makes total sense. The terror and fear surrounding Bane was due to the myth -- the legend that he was the mighty warrior who was able to defy all odds and escape from that hellish prison (Bruce assumes the child was Bane). With the ironic Talia reveal, we find out that it wasn't him but Tallia who had escaped. So you see, the image of indestructibility is broken. We now see him for what he is, fallible and mortal. The impenetrable exterior is broken the same way Bane had broken Bruce's will in the sewer fight. He was already in a very vulnerable position after Batman's pounding. Catwoman then blasts him to shreds as if he were ordinary. Watch it with these points in mind and maybe, just maybe, you won't find it as frustrating.

If you re-watch it, look at Jeff Daniels when Jim Carrey says 'You want to hear the most annoying sound in the world? Arrrrrrrrhhhhhh!' He looks confused, then bursts out laughing because that part wasn't in the script. :)

I like all those movies.......except for Citizen Kane! I stand behind my decision as well. I understand why everybody likes it, but it's not for me.

You hated the British accents?! :D Maybe you shouldn't watch Snatch! Brad Pitt put on an Irish gypsie accent that you can't understand(purposely).

I loved Schindler's List on only my first viewing. It was a big mover in my chart.

One time. I answered the other day how many time I've seen Man of Steel, Dinelka. Remember? I said i live in the country and go to the city and watch a bunch of new releases in a row. Four hours, Dinelka. That's how far away the cinema is.

Some of my favourite scenes. Now Dinelka, I've seen many more movies than you, so you may not know the references. I will also try and keep it spoiler free. I also tried to pick scenes from movies outside my top ten because I've spoken about them in the past.

The Shining- 'Here's Johnny!'
There Will Be Blood- The End
No Country For Old Men- 'Flip a coin'
The Untouchables- the bat scene and Connery's how to get Capone scene
The French Connection- car chase
Ronin- car chase
Taxi Driver- 'Are you talkin' to me?'
Sling Blade- 'French fried potatas mhhmmm'
The Cabin in the Woods- the elevator doors open to reveal....
Shane- end scene.
On the Waterfront- 'I coulda been a contender'
Dumb and Dumber(really the whole movie)- the trip in the van with the bad guy and the snowball fight
Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans- Can't say without spoiling
Battleship Potempkin- The Odessa steps
Pulp Fiction- Jules' bible passage diner scene
Tokyo Story- 'life is a disappointment'. This movie punched me in the gut. Amazing.
Oldboy- Hallway hammer fight
The Mist twist :D Also a reveal of a creature in the mist at the end that I love(nothing to do with the twist).
Strangers on a Train- carousel scene
Dog Day Afternoon- 'Attica!'
Schindler's List- the girl in the red coat
Ten Things I Hate About You- Ledger singing down the steps. I know, Dinelka! :D
Army of Darkness- 'Shop smart.....Shop S-Mart!!'
The Raid- Hallway action scene and wall scene
Universal Soldier- Day of Reckoning- Opening first person shot scene and the hallway action scene.
Kung Fu Hustle- Too many scenes to count. :)
Tombstone- Gunfight at O.K Corral

That's a few for you to look at. :) I think I've got a good mix in there to show how divers my taste can be. :) Looking at this list, I realise I love action in hallways! :D

Spider-Man series is worth at least one sitting. It's my third favorite trilogy after TDK and LotR.

2001 is the most boring film I've ever seen, but it's not because of its slow pace. Jesse James, Zodiac, and Days of Heaven are slow-paced as well. One reason is the film's classical soundtrack. As a kid, I'd watch the Looney Toons Show and some episodes used the same piece... that annoying DA DA DA DA DA DUM DUM DUM DUM. Even as a kid, the music would make me want to stick a nail into my eye socket. Secondly, the film is too self-indulgent. Each scene moves slowly and little to nothing happens. The characters aren't developed, apparently to lower the contrast between the indifferent human characters and the vibrant HAL. Eh, a character can be emotionally distant and still be developed (Ford in Blade Runner). By the time the Hal scenes came, I had totally lost interest in the film. Then there's the frustrating ending with colors and aerial shots and whatnot. It's definitely a film that's not for me.

The Dark Knight- A few scenes without Joker or Batman in the middle left me slightly bored.

The Dark Knight Rises- Talia.

300- the weird looking guy betraying Leonidis.

Fellowship- Gandalf needed a longer beard.

Kick-Ass- I wish I liked Kick-Ass as much as i liked Hit Girl

Shoot 'Em Up- The storyline could of been better.

Star Wars- The weak spot is a little hole on the where they can blast it.

I have been trying to think of one for Shawshank! I can't, and I give up! I thought about it for half an hour, I sick of thinking about it.

I'm sorry, Dinelka, I can't think of any for the last few either. I can't think straight, I've had numbers circling inside my head for ten hours at work, I don't really have the patience to think about it at the moment. No offense is meant, you know that. :)

To be honest, Citizen Kane bored me. I wish I liked it, but I'm nit putting it high on my list because it's well regarded. If I see it again and like it, I'll move it.

I love that you love the old Superman movies, but I never think of them. To be honest, I'm not actually a fan of Superman as a character. He's too strong, has one weakness(which gets tiring for me). They could potentially move up a little bit, but they'll never be near the top. I like this! No holding back what you want to ask me! Great work. :)

Yeah, a little too high for Watchmen. But I love Rorschach! He keeps it at that level on my list.

I couldn't agree with you more about wanting the friends rankings box back on film pages. It's not as much fun when you can't see how others rank your films. I hope they bring it back sharpish.

It's great you enjoyed the soundtrack, but it wasn't composed by John Williams. The soundtrack is a collection of classical and orchestral pieces hand-picked by Kubrick himself. Had I been a fan of the soundtrack, I would've enjoyed 2001 so much more. Really took me outta the whole experience.

Yeah, 2001 is just painfully slow. Really the only interesting part of the film is with HAL. As for Casablanca I will probably watch it soon.

1. The Hottie and the Nottie- Paris Hilton's lazy eye. :D

2. Antichrist- The talking fox and some of the beautiful shots.

3. Shortbus- I think I'd feel wrong if I liked any of this movie.

4. 12(title is roman rumerals). It has gore in it. That's all.

5. Alvin and the Chipmunks- Jason Lee I guess.

6. Swept Away- Madonna's character being forced to do what she's told. Too bad she doesn't listen to people in real life and stops making music.

7. From Justin to Kelly- Um.........Because it's the last time we saw Justin do anything.

8. Son of the Mask- This movie is so bad! They kept the mask green, I guess. :D

9. Delta Farce- it has guns.

10. Hero and the Terror- Chuck Norris!!

Why did you watch Hellraiser 2 if you hated the first so much?

It's Ennio Morricone- of course I loved The Good, the Bad and the Ugly score. I also really love his work on The Untouchables score. I recommend you watch it. :)

You have a point, but Williams' scores can be repetitive as well. His scores are more orchestral in style whereas Zimmer's are more electronic, especially when he's not co-composing with anyone. The involvement of James Howard Newton makes the Batman Begins soundtrack my favorite of the trilogy. Newton's involvement in TDK's compositions was a little lesser, and Zimmer composed the TDKR score all by himself.

Okay, my favourite moments from 11-20.

11. Dumb and Dumber- the snowball fight and Harry on the toilet.

12. Raiders- The opening

13. Empire Strike Back- 'I am your father'

14. Sin City- Marv taking out a bunch of cops.

15. Return of the King- 'For Frodo', 'You bow to no one', and 'I am no man'

16. Scarface- The ending

17 Reservoir Dogs- Michael Madsen's dance, then the ear chopping.

18. Inception- does it stop spinning? Led to great conversations.

19. Cape Fear- Just De Niro's whole performance. He's my favourite. I also love the firework scene

20. Evil Dead 2- My favourite moments are spoilers.

I'm gonna get to your Man of Steel questions today, Dinelka. Count on it. :)

Yeah I guess I am a big Star Wars fan. I'm actually quite critical of the prequels for all the obvious reasons in comparison to the original trilogy. But then again it's still Star Wars and I like it, a love-hate relationship perhaps? I like your ideas for a new filter. What I would like to see is some bars similar to the decades one, but they display home many films you have seen based on their ranking. So for example I might have seen 50 films ranked from 100-300 and 69 films ranked from 2300-2750 or something. It would be a cool way to see how many people have seen lower ranked or more obscure films.

I know how big a fan of Brando you are, so I had to share the following. Get ready, it's a bit crazy! :)

Ron Perlman was on the set of The Island of Dr. Moreau with Brando for the first time with the cast doing a script read.

Brando finished the line, there was a pause, then Brando said 'Your turn arsehole!'

Perlman was thinking 'Boy, I'm glad I'm not that person'

Brando then swung around and looked him in the eyes and said 'Hey! I said it was your turn, arsehole!'

Later, Perlman was just standing there looking at Brando wanting to ask him questions about acting. But the thing is Brando didn't like talking about acting, he thought it was distasteful. However, he could tell that Perlman wanted to ask him something.

He said 'Okay, you get to ask me one question, and no fucking follow-up questions, alright'

Perlman said 'How do you know that you are doing well in the scene?'

Brando said 'Check my arsehole' :O

'I'm sorry, I know you didn't want anymore questions, but I don't know what you mean' Perlman Replied.

'Check your arsehole! If it's loose, then you were good, if it's tight, you have to do it again.

What's your thoughts on that? :D

I'll finally answer your The Dark Knight Rises question. To be honest, I can't defend Talia. I think the story was much better when Bane was the leader. But some people say he didn't have any influence on the plan, I disagree. I think Nolan showing that Bane was going to kill Batman despite Talia's orders shows he wasn't just her attack dog like some people say. I'm still not completely happy with it, but I like so much more of the movie that I can't allow something at the end bother me. I doubt this could change your mind, but it's not my intention. I just want to show where I'm coming from. Oh, I hate Talia's death scene. Cotillard did a terrible job. I think it helped me knowing that Talia is Ra Al Ghul's daughter going into the movie because the twist really had no affect on me. I was annoyed when I read it in an article, but I think it was a benefit to me.

I watched Pulp Fiction yesterday and realized it was my favorite movie so I moved Inception down to 2. The. Today I decided to be honest and brought Inception down to ten. It probably should have happened a while ago, but Inception has been my number 1 since I started Flickchart so I didn't want it to drop I guess.

Yeah, I loved 12 Angry Men and the fact that all but three minutes of the film take place in one room. A film that takes place in one room is usually boring, but this film did not have a dull moment.

I'll try to watch Rear Window sometime soon. Thanks man.

I read what you said about The Mist this morning, but I didn't have time to reply. You bloody got me, Dinelka! :D I really thought you were gonna say you hate it! :D

Did you watch it in colour, or in black and white? I've heard the black and white version really enhances the movie. It even hides the less than stellar special effects.

One part I love is just a very simple part. Seeing a tight rope go slack, was a great visual for me. You don't see what happened, but it allows your mind to race at the possibilities, especially when you see blood.

I agree with you completely! That women is so annoying! But she really does a good job, it's really the purpose of the character to make you feel that way, so the ending is even more effective.

I will definitely rewatch Pul and Raiders. Django, I don't think I even like it. Dicaprio was the whole movie for me, I didn't enjoy anything else. Which version of LOTR films do you prefer?

Really? You love Star Wars even if you didn't watch them as a kid or am I misunderstanding?

Yeah, Godfather Part II, Fight Club and Jaws are masterpieces in my opinion. A huge reason that I love Fight Club is Brad Pitt. Also I really dug the themes. That movie really worked for me. I have a very bad top 100, but I think my top 50 is a bit accurate. When I rewatched Shawshank Redemption for the second time, I only liked it. I don't know why. It really shouldn't be anywhere my top 50 after that viewing. Has something like this ever happened to? That you love a movie so much that you immediately put it in your top 10, but on the second viewing you just don't love it anymore. It has been happening often when I rewatch films lately.

The same thing happened with my second viewing of Pulp Fiction. But yeah, I agree, the film is very goddamn quotable. I will definitely rewatch Pulp Fiction sometime in the near future.

I will see Raiders once more. You should also rewatch Taxi Driver. Definitely tell me what you think of it when you see it.

Yeah, Rebecca is by far my favorite Hitchcock film, I still need to see Vertigo, Rear Window and North by Northwest and many others, but so far, I love Rebecca even more than Notorious and Psycho. The twist at the beach house was amazing. Not really a twist but a revelation.

I used to have over 1200 films on my Flickchart, but I removed the ones I didn't care about (900+ films), and when I am reminded of or see a movie that I liked or loved, I add them now. I don't rate random movies anymore, My bottom movies represent ones that I think are overrated.

You also seem to be watching many movies lately. I envy you so much man, I haven't seen a movie in 1 and a half months.

Oh yes, I like Rebecca very much. My five favorite Hitchcock films are:

1. Psycho
2. Rebecca
3. Strangers on a Train
4. North by Northwest
5. Rear Window

Strangers on a Train is definitely worth checking out when you get a chance.

In regards to Rear Window, I'd say the reason I don't have it ranked higher is just because I have a strong preference for more modern films. For older films, it takes me longer to really appreciate them. Rear Window has probably risen 100 spots or so in my rankings in the past year, so it may continue to rise in the future.

I go on Letterboxd every day, but I haven't done any reviews yet. I'm taking my time exploring the site and getting used to it. Plus, Flickchart is still my favorite site, so Letterboxd will probably always be second banana to me. ;)

That's weird man, it looks like we watched Strangers on a Train around the same time. I also really liked it. I loved Rope and I thought the acting was great. Next I'll probably watch either Rebecca or Dial M For Murder.

I should probably have Shadow of a Doubt ranked higher than it is. It's a good film, it's just not one that I connected with. I think I read somewhere that it was Hitchcock's favorite film so, for that reason alone, it's a must-see.

I saw my first Hitchcock film (North by Northwest) about a year and a half ago, and have been interested in them ever since. I've seen 17 Hitchcock movies now, and am now starting to watch some of his lesser known works (Lifeboat was the last one). I'd definitely put Hitchcock in the top five greatest directors ever.

Another Hitchcock film I'd recommend is The 39 Steps (#198 on Flickchart). It's only about 80 minutes and it's super easy to find online (it's all over YouTube).

Oh, Upstreamn Colour! I haven't seen that yet. Have you seen Primer? That's a headspin! :)

I'm sorry, Dinelka. What movie do you want a short review on letterboxd for? The thing with letterboxd is I've settled on this site, all my movies are up, I've made comments on here. It kinda feels like I'm starting again. it's daunting for me to have to add over three thousand movies. I'm going to try and be more motivated to do more on that site, though. :)

Not a big fan of Drive? Was it a bit slow for you?

Very cool that you like Strangers on a Train. :)

That's fine Dinelka. I definitely see why Drive wouldn't work for you. :) Oops! I haven't been on Letterbox'd today. Sorry.

Yep, I've seen Gaslight. It's very good. Seems like a movie you would like.

Shadow of a Doubt as well! You're on quite a Hitchcock marathon Dinelka. :) Frenzy is another good Hitchcock movie.

To each his own. I don't like the movie, but I agree, it does have a great cast.

I remember liking ROTK director's cut so much that it is the only LOTR film I have on my top 100, #78 on my Flickchart.

I watched a lot of random movies when I was a kid, but only on a channel that is for kids. I also used to watch TONS of action movies with Stallone, Arnie and other people. I have seen 90% of Arnie's movies.

Taxi Driver is the film that made me love films, that's one of the main reasons why it's #1. I do think there are better films though (Not many, but there are some).

Ed Norton is VERY brilliant, but Brad Pitt steals the show in EVERY scene because of his charisma, and the fact that he is my favorite (or second favorite) movie character of all time.

Yeah, latest viewings are what decide a film's place on my list.

Rebecca is a masterpiece. My favorite Hitchcock film. So glad you loved it too. I don't really like Dial M for murder, Strangers on a Train and Notorious though.

Yeah movies like How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, Limitless, Percy Jackson etc. You know, mediocre movies.

I have a question for: Does every movie that you watch goes to your Flickchart, even mediocre or bad ones? I personally only rate movies I like/love and ones I think that are overrated.

You didn't like Drive eh? Bro-Fist. It does have great cinematography and great acting by Gosling though.
Have you seen the movie Bronson by Winding Refn? I love that movie so much(Now that I was reminded of it, I will add it to my Flickchart). I definitely recommend it. It has the best performance of Tom Hardy's career. It also has english accents which are a huge plus for a movie in my book. :D

I can't give you a confident answer either way. But all I know is that I like your reviews. :)

The only way Drive and Only God Forgives are related is it's the same actor and director. Only God Forgives got the movie of the festival over in Sydney when it premiered there, but many people still seem to hate it. To be honest Dinelka, I don't know if you should check it out. I've heard Gosling has even less dialogue in this movie! After reading your review of Drive, this seems like it'll be a big issue for you.

I'm glad you're liking Hitchcock so much. :)

Yeah, that is pretty cool to win an Oscar for your first film. That is a really cool connection that you noticed between Rear Window and Dial M for Murder. Thanks for sharing that with me.

I don't know if you know this, but The Godfather was Al Pacino's 3rd film! And that is if you count his first film which he is only in about a minute of it. He was very new to acting and to be able to compete with greats like Brando and Duvall is amazing.

I was planning on watching Spellbound sometime soon. I kind of agree with you on Vertigo. I loved it, but as you can see out of the 9 Hitchcock films I've seen so far it is my least favorite.

My favorite actors are: Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Christian Bale, Samuel L. Jackson, and Edward Norton. I don't necessarily think that they are the best, but I think that they are the most reliable if you know what I mean.

My opinion is that when you're at school, it's fine to have short comments. But at home, try and explain why you like a movie, say something funny or anything you like really. :) You know I'm not putting you down, and I know you leave longer comments as well. I'm just voicing my thoughts. :)

I get why you wrote t now. Anyway, you weren't the only one who did. :)

I'll answer the work question, but I can't say what I do. You may be able to tell, I'm a really nice guy, but I don't show that at work. :D I don't let most of them know me because, to be frank, they're dickheads! I also use it to my advantage, they are slightly intimidated by me, so when I tell them to do something, they listen. Ha! I probably sound like a crazy man! But all I'm doing is making work run as smooth as possible for me and the other workers that are trying their best. Some people I do have a laugh with. I have actually been in charge of 20 people for the last few weeks while someone was on holiday, but now I'm back to my old job. The person really is terrible at her job, though! When workers want advice to what needs to be done, they tend to come to me. :) I also learnt recently that they want me to learn the job above the other person as well! :)

If I may, I'd like to share something advice with you that I think could be good info. When you get a job, don't go and get a bank loan for a brand new car. In my town, countless guys have done this, and now are struggling to make ends meet. But they did thrash the cars as well, so they need another soon. I'd think you wouldn't do that. I was careful, drove a shitbucket, and saved so much! You may know this already, but I just thought I would help you out, plus show the type of people I work with. :)

Your thoughts on Gaslight mirror mine. :)

I have been trying all day to get on flickchart! It was really annoying me!

For Daniel Day Lewis movies, I highly recommend My Left Foot. You want to see some out-of-this-world acting, watch him in that film. :)

I like your answers, but I didn't do well explaining the question. What actors, that haven't really had a leading role before would you like to see have main roles?

Haha! Yeah, I guess it's funny to read what I do like that! Plus I'm 6'6, the dickheads shut up! :D I also think because I do everything properly the way I tell them to do it, they don't have a leg to stand on to come back at me. :D

That's good Dinelka! :) That's a great first step imo. Get an old, reliable first car with money from your first job, and you'll be laughing. :)

I don't know if you know this, but apparently Christopher Lee and J.R.R. Tolkien were good friends and Tolkien said that if anyone ever turned LOTR into a movie that he wanted Lee to play Gandalf. He was of course cast as Saruman. I don't know about you, but I can't really see him playing Gandalf, can you? I'm glad they cast him as Saruman instead and cast Ian McKellen as Gandalf.

For my favorite movie of 2012, I'd have to say Skyfall. That movie is amazing. Django definitely has great acting, but definitely not the best ensemble cast of 2012. I'd say that award goes to the Master. I didn't love the movie but the performances are mindblowingly-awesometacular. I would say that I prefer Philip Seymour Hoffman's perforamnce more than that of Leonardo Dicaprio. Joaquin Phoenix demonstrated what an actor is capable of: amazingness. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it, even for the performances alone. It is a very good film though. It definitely needs a re-watch. Just don't watch it with your parents. I also highly recommend There Will Be Blood and Magnolia. 3 PTA films that I need to re-watch.

Yeah, I don't think any other film will replace Taxi Driver as my #1. I must watch Rear Window, Vertigo and North By Northwest. I prefer the 60's, 70's and 80's era of films more than the ''golden age of Hollywood'', the 40's and the 50's. But I really do love some of the movies from that time.

Each to his own. I'm glad that you enjoyed them and even loved them. Even If I don't love them, I can say that they are suspenseful as f**k. HItchcock has really earned the title ''The Master of Suspense''.

Drive does get better with repeated viewings though. I didn't like it the first time, and I really liked it the second viewing. Who knows, I might even love it on the third viewing. Bronson is awesome. Watch it whenever you feel like it.

I was browsing through your list, and holy shit, why is Raging Bull so low? Also why haven't I added Star Trek on my list? I have watched that movie 5-6 times and have loved it each time. I have to add it now.

I was checking your IMDb top 250 list on Letteboxd and holy shit we agree on 95 % of the ratings of the movies.

What are you planning on seeing next?

He's been is so few because he picks his projects carefully, then inhabits the character he plays! For The Last of the Mohicans, he actually lived off the land for months! People couldn't get ahold of him because he cut ties with technology. When you see My Left Foot, you'll see why they put him in the same category as those other greats you listed. :)

Michael Shannon is a great choice Dinelka. :)Mine would be Ben Foster, Paddy Considine, Charlie Hunnum, Bryan Cranston, Scott Adkins(for action movies), Eddie Marsan and Ezra Miller(could very well happen).

The Wolverine was great! They raised the stakes by making him vulnerable. I really enjoyed parts of the score, which had a Once Upon a Time in the West vibe to it. Jack man was terrific, and I appreciated that they kept quite a few plot points from the trailer.

Pacific Rim was fun. It was an easy watch that's not to be taken seriously. I really enjoyed Del Toro's effort to make sure you clearly see what is happening, and where the jaigers and kaiju are positioned. Let's say, like how Michael Bay didn't for his Transformers movies. Oh, Dinelka! There's ''Aussies'' in this movie! Ones played by an American, the other is English! The accents are bloody awful! Why cast two non-Australians to be Australians when they can't do an accent! Just hire some Aussies for fuck sake! They were nearly as bad as Tarantino!

I can't wait until the end of next month! I'll be watching two of my most anticipated movies of the year in one weekend! That would be Kick-Ass 2 and Elysium. I may also see Pain and Gain and You're Next. :)

Yeah, Christopher Lee is a BEAST! He over 90 and still going strong. That is funny that we both watched Shadow of a Doubt at about the same time. Did you know that Eli Wallach (Tuco in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly) turns 98 this Dcember! It's pretty crazy how long some people live.

The Once Upon a Time in the West score vibe is very small part of the movie, not throughout. But I instantly responded to it. :)

Haha! I'm glad I could make you have a laugh mate. :)

It's fine you're not excited for Elysium. I haven't even seen the trailer, so I can't comment. :) Have you seen District 9? It's the same director, that's why I'm excited. That was low budget, I want to see what he can do with some money.

You may have a limited vocab(seems fine to me), but as long as you make up for it with your passion for the film, then your previews will be interesting to read. Can I give you a some minor constructive criticism? It's one thing I saw, you don't have to If you're fine. :)

That's cool of you to understand where my position on reviews. :) When I do have time, I'm usually too tires to be writing long reviews. :)

To be honest, I haven't seen your Up review. I'll go look at it now. :) That's nice that you appreciate me liking your reviews. Yeah, I know you weren't addressing that at me! I think we're at the point where we can say stuff to each other and know it's with the best intentions. :)
