No problem on the friend invite. Thanks for accepting. As for 2001, yes it's truly a mind-blowing experience. I also noticed you commenting on a lot of Dracula (1931) matchups. It's refreshing to see someone who appreciates it like I do. Most folk here that I associate with don't particularly care for it. Many seem to think it's boring and dated. It's a bit dated, but that strangely adds to the allure for me. A common complaint also is that it lacks background music to keep the viewer vested in the film. My cure for that is the version with the Phillip Glass score added in. I love it as it perfectly brings out the mood of the film.

Here's a link to Dracula (1931) with the Phillip Glass score added... Enjoy:

2. Rise of the Planet of the Apes - #30

I'd definitely start with the awesome Rise of the Planet of the Apes, followed by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

As for the original series of films, they play out like one really long story, so it's kinda necessary to watch them in order.

I'm definitely was surprised with T2! It's a bad-ass film, with bad-ass Arnie, and bad-ass villain, bad-ass story, bad-ass boy, everything in this way! 2nd on my chart, just cannot beat Star Wars, hehe...

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is sure great, man! The 1090 in global ranking, don't mean anything. Well-directed, the story development was fantastic. You was amazing, haha. I give a 8/10 on IMDb. Dawn looks awesome! Can't wait to see it.

I think the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Blu-ray is pretty inexpensive now, so I'd say it's definitely worth getting.

I watched The Lost World: Jurassic Park for the first time recently and hated it. It was just so boring to me. It's #984 out of 1217 movies on my chart (19%). I haven't bothered with Jurassic Park III.

I actually thought Jurassic World wasn't too bad. It almost cracked my top 500 (#528 or 57%). Jurassic Park, though, is obviously the best of the series. It's #49 on my chart (96%).

Glad you liked Rear Window.

I’ve seen about 20 Hitchcock titles. And I’ve seen many of them more times than I can count. The absolute best Hitchcock film for me is clearly Vertigo, hands down. Vertigo has an addictive quality to it. When you’re finished watching it, you’re tempted to do it all over again. Such a wonderful score… and that intro is something to behold as well. It almost hypnotizes you before the movie starts. It’s a mesmerizing experience that somehow gets better and better each time you watch it. When I first encountered Vertigo, I watched it at least 10 times in a month span. No kidding. Oh, and please don’t read too much about the movie. A brief synapsis is more than enough. For the first viewing, the less you know, the better.

After Vertigo, Psycho is the next best of Hitchcock’s films. Another wonderful plot and score as well. After those two, next are North by Northwest and Rear Window. I consider them a coin flip in terms of which I like more. So, the big 4 are Vertigo, Psycho, North by Northwest, and Rear Window.

After that, it gets more difficult to rank them. Personally, I put Notorious next then Rope. Rope isn’t for everyone though. It’s very stagey and even a bit gimmicky, but I love that about it. If you need more info, just hit me up on my page.

Casablanca is the film that converted me from a casual movie fan to a serious student of film, particularly the old classics. I first watched Casablanca about 17 years ago. It's been my number one movie ever since.

As for Vertigo, I encountered it just two years ago. Hear me on this: I have NEVER been so engulfed and drawn into a movie on first viewing as I was with Vertigo. And each time I revisit the movie, it just gets better and better!

For a while now, I've wanted to make Vertigo my favorite film of all time, but I almost feel like I'd be cheating on Casablanca as if I were in a relationship with it. I think it has to do with how long I've loved Casablanca and the subsequent sentimental value attached with it. But whenever someone asks me for a movie recommendation, I will almost always recommend Vertigo before I recommend Casablanca. And who knows... One day I may do the unthinkable and make Vertigo my top film over Casablanca.

So here's the order you should watch if you want to see them starting with the very best: Vertigo, Psycho, North by Northwest. Of course Rear Window would be next, but you've already seen it. So after you've watched the three I've recommended, let me know what you think of each of them and based on your response, I'll let you know what I think you should watch next.

Hey thanks for the compliment! I understand your concern about JW. When I was a kid, the only things I ever liked watching back then was Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and the original Batman films (which shaped me into the movie lover that I am today).

But for some reason, JP never did anything for me. I completely understand why people love it. It's a great film, but like I said, it just never did much for me.

Jurassic World, while a flawed movie, did everything for me that Jurassic Park didn't. I just found it to be much more "epic".

Now, I see that Jurassic Park is very high in your list, so I don't mean to offend. I think that they're both wonderful films. Again, thanks for the nice compliments and I look forward to our discussions in the future. Have a nice day!

Glad you loved Hitchcock’s big 4. Now that you’ve seen those, I’ll recommend his next tier of movies. The next 4 would probably be Notorious, Rebecca, Strangers on a Train, and Dial M for Murder. Now let me warn you: These 4 are much heavier in dialogue than Hitchcock’s big 4. So you have to really listen carefully and attentively.

Also, with Hitchcock’s big 4 that you’ve already seen, I fell in love the first time. Now, I love all of these next 4 that I’m recommending. In fact, they’re all in my top 100, but it honestly took multiple viewings before I loved them the way I do today.

So those are the next 4, but I’ll let you in on a little secret of mine: I actually love Rope more than all of these next 4 except maybe Notorious. I actually loved Rope from the first viewing like with Hitchcock’s big 4. But I must warn you of Rope as well: It’s not a film that everyone adores like I do. So you could actually watch it either before or after these next 4 that I’ve listed. Just read up on the reviews and see the order in which you want to view them.

With these next 4 and Rope, they are different from Hitchcock’s big 4. With his big 4, you really shouldn’t read a lot about them because it would spoil the plots for them. With these next 4 and Rope, the plots aren’t so mysterious (except maybe Rebecca). So it’s okay to read reviews, but if you see the word SPOILER, just quit reading. Other than that, it’s okay to read reviews on these. In fact, I encourage it to give you a sense of what’s going on since they are heavy with dialogue.

Hi - ok, I'll try my best :)

JP - I used to complain about it for years but after watching it again a couple of months back, it hit good. 9/10

Jaws - My parents took us to see at theatre. I was a very young teen at the time but the film scared the shit out of me, lol. My one brother said I only took showers for a week after because I was afraid to take a bath, LOL. 9/10

E.T. - I've only seen it once waaaaaay back and don't recall other than it bored me. I need to watch it again but just don't have the desire.

T2 - I still prefer it over the original. The film is still as powerful as it was when first released. 9/10

True Grit - I don't recall ever seeing it. I'm not a fan of Wayne.

Star Wars - Never seen it nor any of the sequels. I'm in my 50's and I still don't have the desire.

Psycho - First seen it at an old girlfriend's place back around 1983. It was on late at night and she was asleep. The film literally scared the crap out of me. 9/10

NBN - Entertaining and I still get that freaky feeling if I was ever out in some barren or cornfield and a plane is trying to attack me. 8.5/10

The Shining - I've always been a fan. The scariest part of the film, and has been since first viewed, was the background ambiance (sounds). 9.5/10

Vacation - lol, still funny. I prefer the Christmas one but all the films are a delight. I love John Candy's bit in the film. 8.5/10

2. Psycho - My favorite Hitchcock film.

3. Jurassic Park - It's currently in my top 50.

4. Terminator 2: Judgment Day - Arnold!

5. Jaws - This is becoming one of my favorite Spielberg movies.

6. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial - This may be Spielberg's greatest film, even though I like some of his other stuff better.

7. North by Northwest - Awesome film, though a bit long.

8. National Lampoon's Vacation - Funny movie.

9. True Grit - I'm a fan of John Wayne, so I enjoy this film.

10. The Shining - I found this movie a bit too long.

Yeah, my top 10 has changed quite a bit recently. I rewatched 2001, which made me reconsider its position on my list. I've also rewatched the original Star Wars trilogy again, which is why those are so high on my list right now.

Now for recommendations. If you plan to hold off on watching Inception, then I would maybe recommend The Prestige or Memento. Also, have you seen any of the Star Trek films? If you enjoy Star Wars and the Indiana Jones movies, I bet you'll like Star Trek!

Now I would add rocky is my no.34 And taxi driver my no.35.They are right next to each to each other.
So any of this 2 movies winning is great for me.
All classic movies.
The bigger oscar snub I would say that Is rober De Niro( and dare I say it Silvester Stallone) not winning the oscar .They deserved the oscar far more than Late great Peter Finch who won the oscar that year . :-)
Have you seen Network ?? It is a good movie too.Not so popular as Rocky and Taxi driver,but it's pritty good too.

Interesting choice for JC being your fave. Because of T2, what are your thoughts on Aliens and how do you think it compares to the original Alien? Also to do with Ridley Scott, what are your thoughts on him and how do you think Gladiator and Blade Runner measure up as movies. I also noticed your favourite film by Stanley Kubrick is The Shining and most people choose 2001 over it. Personally I thought 2001 was boring, and only until the third time I put it on to watch it did I make it the whole way through without turning it off out of boredom. What are your thoughts on Kubrick's others, eg. Dr. Strangelove, Clockwork Orange. And how do you think 2001, Blade Runner, and Alien all compare with one another?

Out of 2001, Alien and Blade Runner, Blade Runner easily is my favourite. It's visually impressive for its time and still looks really good today, and sets a great atmosphere. It's also especially thought-provoking in themes regarding consciousness, memory, death and various other related ideas and executes a film around it brilliantly.

The Shining is my number 1 Kubrick film, and easily a masterpiece, one of the truly most well made films ever, same goes for Dr. Strangelove which is my second favourite. For A Clockwork Orange, though surprisingly funny in parts I agree it's a bit disturbing and put me off from jumping into watching Eyes Wide Shut which I've heard was similar, and haven't seen yet. The story when I look at it though is actually pretty clever, but in terms of enjoyment its a bit too harrowing for my taste. Full Metal Jacket needs a re-watch to determine how good it is and how well it stands up against the other of Kubricks. I remember I thought it was really funny in parts.
2001 was way too long for me, easily the hardest film for me to finish that people have hailed a great movie. Doesn't touch Shining. I swear an hour of it was just shots of space. Took way too long to get to its deeper message, with HAL. Spartacus - I agree, this is barely a Kubrick film, though I did like it,same goes for Killer's Kiss which is a very light film. Barry Lyndon was beautifully shot and I prefer its visuals much more than 2001. Each shot does look like a renaissance painting. Paths of Glory is very succint but very good for how short it is.

Despite how Alien is boring in parts for me, I'd say it's aged terribly because of how many B-Movie knockoffs its inspired. At its core it has similar message to Jaws (nature wants to kill humans), but Jaws is far more entertaining. I also think both Jaws and Alien, unlike 2001(Dave that boring bastard) created really realistic characters who didn't seem plastic and were believable which are some of their greatest strengths. And the design for the xenomorph in Alien is actually one of the greatest in film I'd say.

I think Ridley Scott is good but not in the league of the best actors because of how many "meh" films he's done and his lack of great ones. Then there are the turd stains on his resume like Kingdom of Heaven. What's worse than a bad film is one that goes on for too long. I'd say Blade Runner is easily his best film.

It isn't especially thematically deep but I liked Gladiator because of its action and its "Game of Thrones" esque, cutthroat olden days lifestyle vibe it had going.

I'm interested to see what The Martian's like.

American Gangster isn't amazing but its good. It's more in the league of GoodFellas for me. What is your opinion on Martin Scorsese's movies? Also what are your thoughts on Robert De Niro?

My recommendations would be anything from my top 100 or more. I can't seem to list them properly on this site but the first 100 should suffice.

I kind of gave up trying to sort it out, which means plenty of favs are probably rated above 1000, LOL. Too bad you just can't move the list to your liking in a most simplistic way.

Simply put incidious sucks.It really sucks.It was ment to be a horror movie,but the end product made me laugh out loud.I men listening to musics and all,ghost inside creepy old woman,and chocking Ty simkins on-screen father at the last seen made me laugh.
Yeah you are right it is like a very B Grade trimmed down version of the shining.
Hitchcock movies are great.Be it psycho,vertigo,rear window,NXNW,dial m for murder,spellbound( underrated Hitchcock classic),lifeboat(@nother underrated hitch classic) and rebecca too.All are great.

Hey you have met all of them.How did you met Sylvseter stallone,RDJ and others,well did you see them on premere or saw them walking on street or in some other place.
I have personally met Tom Cruise,High Jackman,Ben Kingsley.

Wes Anderson is not that popular in general audience ,but he is a great director man.GNU,Darjeeling limited are are some of my face.of his.
I will definitely recommend the prestige. It is my all time favourite movie ever.It has a great Hugh Jackman and Christan Bale performance. WATCH IT AND YOU WILL LOVE IT I HOPE.
Yeah but I would say that it isn't the greatest movie ever though.Far from it.if asked the greatest movie ever,I would say Titanic(not a popular opinion to keep I know he he),or Fellowship of the ring.Or,Even schindler's list.

Scorsese is good in my eyes, but I wouldn't be excited if I heard he had a new film coming out. Robert De Niro is one of my favourite actors and I thought he was amazing in Taxi Driver. He basically did nothing in GoodFellas in comparison. Raging Bull is good, but is much different from Taxi Driver, as it's more of a really strong drama.

Wolf of Wall Street was funny in parts, but dragged on for too long and was basically the exact same story as GoodFellas. Just like Casino and Mean Streets, which are basically the same as GoodFellas again. Shutter Island was good but nothing amazing. I could see why someone would hate that film. Gangs of New York is terrible imo, overrated garbage which gets praised simply for having Scorsese and Daniel-Day Lewis' name on it.

Yeah the pic is Paul Newman from The Sting. Another one of my favourite actors, because of how cool his characters are, like Clint Eastwood's characters. I really liked Cool Hand Luke and The Hustler. Cool Hand Luke is maybe kind of Kubrick in that it's a character study, though it didn't remind me of Kubrick at all. I really liked it though it was a teensy bit depressing for me. Same goes for the Hustler which I thought was also one of the best dramas of the 60s, though I don't think it's a film for everybody. I liked all of Paul Newman's films, though the more happy ones with Robert Redford I found more enjoyable, like the Sting and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. What are your favourite actors?

Who Framed Roger Rabbit I guess I liked, but it was reeallly surprisingly weird I found. I wouldn't walk in expecting all the famous animated faces like Looney Tunes to be prominent in it, as it only really has a few as cameos for the most part. What's weird about it was how it was like a neo-noir like Chinatown which would be the film I would most compare it to, I can't think of any other more simliar ones, aside from the Looney Tunes and Disney shorts. It's got a lot of Looney Tunes humour in it though, and I thought it was pretty good but I've yet to form a solid opinion on it. What are your thoughts on the detective films, or crime thrillers that you've seen?

Over at imdb, many users gave The Visit a better rating. Plus, several film critics praised it. I don't care what others say for I rate what the film does for me. It wasn't a great film nor was it his worst but I gave it a 5 because I'm still on the fence. It's not scary nor any tension, something that the film lacked. It had a few jump scares, that was it.

I've seen The Warriors at least 20 times (probably more). Sure, part of it is nostalgia but still love it.

A tip before viewing you asked? My tip and it's for everyone and every film - don't ever EVER go into a film for the first time with high expectations. Ever. Don't even think of the praise, just go into it with a fresh mind.

Yes! I am so ready for The Force Awakens! Star Wars (Episode IV) is my favorite movie and I couldn't be more pumped to see Episode VII!

I feel it will be almost like a combination of every film from the original trilogy. It will introduce new characters to the Star Wars universe, like A New Hope. It seems like it will be darkest (except maybe Ep III) Star Wars film to date, like Empire. Obviously, it takes place after and will likely have many references to Return of the Jedi.

I'm also glad that George Lucas will not be involved with the film. It's great that they've got a Star Wars superfan like J.J. Abrams to direct. What do you think?

Some detective films I've seen that come to mind are:

Chinatown and Silence of the Lambs are both amazing films, needless to say.

The Usual Suspects - I really liked it though it's like Se7en because about half the people who saw it dont like it. I thought as it progressed and near the end it was "real detective" moment.

Pulp Fiction - Definitely the best I've seen, I mean the screenplay is great but even the writing for the scenarios is genius. I mean a guy sneaks back into his apartment for his watch and finds a henchman on his toilet. And then he encounters the mob boss crossing the street while driving back. And then they both get held prisoner by hillbillies. That's genius, I love how unpredictable the film was like when Marvin got shot in the face.

Noir films - Amazing ones like Double Indemnity and Maltese Falcon, fantastic noir installments. I liked The Third Man too though it is the most polarizing of the three main noir films. One of the best neo-noirs I've seen is LA Confidential which is a perfect send up to the original noir genre.

I felt GoodFellas used Joe Pesci's unpredictability way too often and it became a gimmick.

I hated batman in the dark knight but I thought it raised explored great ethical decisions like on the ferry scene about voting and the value of human life. I still don't know what to think of The Dark Knight Rises. Batman Begins was a boring piece of shit, like the new spiderman films which were cheesy, predictable carbon copies I hated and couldn't finish.

I love Paul Newman so much, it's real hard to choose my favourite actors but I guess my top 10 would be:
1 - Tom Hanks
2 - Clint Eastwood - Badass in cop films, westerns and as a grumpy old man
3 - Brad Pitt - Not for his acting talent but for the strange characters he plays like in 12 Monkeys, True Romance, and Burn After Reading
4 - Paul Newman
5 - Humphrey Bogart - Badass in noirs and comically unusual characters in his others
6 - James Stewart - So likeable in general. Played an asshole in Rope.
7 - Gary Oldman - Plays insane weird guys
8 - Robert De Niro
9 - Bill Murray
10 - Joseph Gordon-Levitt - Sick of seeing these young talentless pieces of shit in movies so it's good to see a good, cool young actor for once.

Honorable mentions for younger Harrison Ford, because his newer films like Indy 4 and Expendables bring him down for me.
Ahaha I quite like Jeff Goldblum too, especially in Grand Budapest Hotel with the cat! He was the only redeeming factor in Jurassic Park 2 for me as well aside from the dinosaurs.

Among my least favourite actors are Hayden Christensen, recent Johnny Depp films and Jennifer Lawrence.
Do you have any actors you dislike?
What are your thoughts on Nicolas Cage? I hate him too haha, I saw Ghost Rider and it was such a piece of shit, maybe even worse than the hulks. What was your thoughts on Ghost Rider and Hulks? And what are your thoughts on Marvel's "Avengers" films?

Happy Halloween to you too, man! Though it is a little late for me to say, haha!

So cool that you could be at the LA premiere! As cool as it would be to be able to go, I just can't handle a packed theater. I usually like to wait at least a couple of days for big event movies once they come out. Like Avengers: Age of Ultron, I went to see it at an early time on a Sunday. It was still a packed theater, though.

I pretty much have to go on opening weekends, because I can't risk hearing spoilers from people at school. Luckily, The Force Awakens comes out just as my Christmas break begins (I think) so I'll be safe from hearing anything.

Once December gets here, I plan to take a little break from Flickchart. I'm that paranoid about Force Awakens spoilers! I remember reading Age of Ultron spoilers on Flickchart before it even released in the States!

Anyway, I totally agree with what you said about the original Halloween! It's one of the first films I remember seeing as a child (the television version, of course). Truthfully, it's probably what got me into movies!

Hey, cool, there's not much age difference between you and me. I'm 15. We both saw these films at very young ages. I still need to see The Evil Dead trilogy. I know that the Halloween season is over, but I'm still on a horror movie high. It's become a habit for me to watch horror movies. Yesterday, I started John Carpenter's Halloween for the billionth time (just love that movie), then I realized that it was November, haha. But I don't care, I'm going to keep on watching what I love.

Sorry for late reply. Computer hasn't been working so I've been using my phone. I agree that X-Men and Sam Raimi’s Spiderman are Marvel’s redeeming features. I tried watching the spiderman reboot but it was so generic and boring, and just like with Man of Steel, I couldn’t finish it. I didn't like Avengers 2. It had absolutely nothing deep or new to say about Artificial Intelligence and didn’t feel focused but instead studied Thor and other stupid shit so it could set him and others up with more shit sequels.
Definitely an unpopular opinion, but Iron Man 2 is one of my favourite MCU films. I liked how it was just the characters chilling out and didn't try to force in a story that was stupid like with Thor 2. There will probably be 30 more shit superhero movies in the next 10 years from MCU alone. Who's your favourite Avenger?

What was your thoughts on Iron Man 3? I preferred it over The Avengers but there were so many Deus Ex Machina moments, eg. the kid he stumbles upon being a genius, the iron man suits all turning up fully working near the end, Gwenyth Paltrow surviving and killing the villain. Ben Kingsley acting like an idiot was a highlight.
What are your thoughts on Ty Simpkins?
I’m Interested to see what Deadpool’s like though. Seems different from the others, though it might just end up a piece of shit action comedy.

lol, I remember Joe Pesci was an idiot in Lethal Weapon.
Double Indemnity is my favourite film noir, with exceptional dialogue. Out of DI, Maltese Falcon, and Third Man, Maltese Falcon is probably the least polarising, and Third Man most so. I liked The Third Man and it’s in my top 100, but some people don’t like the tone. Definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of the noir genre though. Some people just don’t like noir in general, just like some people don’t like westerns, but I love it and I’d say Double Indemnity is the best noir film of all time.

Oh, and what would be your top 10 horror movie characters? I've seen barely any of the classics though,, and only recently, but mine would go as so:
1 - Norman Bates
2 - Anyone played by Vincent Price
3 - Freddy Krueger
4 - Michael Myers
5 - The Xenomorph
6 - Jack Torrance
7 - Dracula
9 - Ellen Ripley
9 - Lloyd from The Shining
10 - Shaun from Shaun of the Dead

AND for Typecast actors, who would be your top 10 favourites?
Mine would be:
1-Jack Nicholson
2-Paul Newman
3-Vincent Price
4-Bill Murray
5-Morgan Freeman
6-Samuel L. Jackson
7-Clint Eastwood
8-Steve Buscemi
9-Peter Lorre
10-Jim Carrey
God I hated Scott Pilgrim. Michael Cera just plays Michael Cera again. There were a couple of laughs, mostly with Chris Evans' character, but overall I just didn't find it funny, which makes it worse since the thing which drives the plot forwards are those jokes. Typecast actors like Nicholson are sometimes actually great, like Jack Nicholson. Joe Pesci and Michael Cera would be among my least favourites.

I don't like QT movies at all.
Inglourious Basterds was his best I would say.
Django Unchained was passable
I find Pulp Fiction a little bit overrated(It didn't have any fucking story just mobs running 'round)
Kill bill vol .1 Was wayyy over the top(some good actions and nothing more)
Kill bill vol.2 Was a shit
Reservoir Dogs had a very very solid story but it was really excequted badly.
All in all I am on the QT is overrated train(and as the things are going I always will be)

I didn't cared about Vertigo either.It had a nice story and nic eshooting locations but all in all it was never that engaging.Kim Novak should definietly take acting classess.
Jimmy Stewart was horribley mis-cast as Scottie Fergusson.He was too old to play that role and was creepy too.The murder plot was just too far-fetched.
II saw it on 2013 for the 1st time.Didn't cared about it then either.I gave it another try few days earlier didn't cared about it again.

Yeah, Jack Nicholson is damn great. Easily in top 5 best actors ever imo are Robert De Niro an Jack Nicholson, tho Nicholson probably better because De Niro is in too many shitty gangster movies.
I agree; my favourite MCU character by far is Nick Fury, even though he’s a carbon copy of all the other Sam Jackson’s he’s still reaally fukin cool. Pretty hard to choose my favourite avenger, but it’s definitely not Hawkeye or Black Widow. I’m sick of Thor, and getting tired of RDJ as well. Cap used to be my least favourite, but Cap 2 they developed his character to be not cliched and preachy. Close but I’d say Hulk as well, but only Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner, which is way better than the cheesy and dull Norton and Bana Hulks.
My top 10 movie superheroes/villains are:
1.Heath Ledger’s Joker
2.Wolverine
3.Magneto
4.Blade
5.Hellboy
6.Frozone
7.Nick Fury
8.Star-Lord
9.Michael Keaton’s Batman
10.Mr. Glass
Wow, Sam Jackson is on it three times.
What would be your top 10 Movie Superheroes/Villains?

I saw Jurassic World and was pissed off when I saw Ty Simpkins was in it. Dunno what to think of his talent, but I surely don't like him.
I loved The Thing, and am excited to see more of John Carpenter’s films, and I loved Kurt Russell in too, so I’m hyped to see him in New York and Little China.
My favourite saga of all time would be LOTR if it weren’t for the lame Hobbit films, so my favourite would have to be Toy Story. Most film sagas I haven’t seen all of the sequels, or one of the movies in the franchise brought the overall quality of the series down, eg. Crystal Skull, Batman Begins, X-Men 3... My second favourite saga would be Back to the Future trilogy. I loathe the Mad Max films, that would be my least favourite. I also like the Dirty Harry and Harry Potter films.
What is your least favourite saga?

haven’t seen the other two films in the dollars trilogy. Before I saw GBU I hated the western genre, and didn’t want to watch 10 hours of it, plus I heard GBU was a prequel(?) and a threequel. I love the genre now though and definitely look forward to seeing both.
I see you recently added A Clockwork Orange. I liked the story a lot, though it’s a bit too harrowing for my taste. What were your thoughts?

Yeah, I think Revenge of the Sith is way underrated. I would even go as far as to say it's just about as good as the originals.

I agree with you about A Clockwork Orange. It's certainly an engaging film. The main issue I had with it was whenever Alex got arrested. The fun and excitement just all came to an abrupt end, then it just kind of became a little boring, compared to the first act.

I loved Rope. It just might be my personal favorite Hitchcock film so far. I've really enjoyed many of Hitchcock's films so far, but there's always something that I find to be abit off about them. For example, I was a bit bored with Psycho up until the point when Marion arrived at Bates Motel. From then on, I was hooked until the end of the film. I love Rear Window, but the storyline involving James Stewart and Grace Kelly's relationship just bored me. North by Northwest's only problem was that it was a little too long and it had a very abrupt ending. So far, Rope is really the only Hitchcock film that I find to be pretty much flawless. Also, that final scene just left me speechless.

Actually I didn’t mind The Lost World, though annoying characters kind of ruined it for me. I felt all 4 JP films had annoying characters, and they got more annoying as the films progressed. The first one the young boy was kind of annoying but it didn’t take away from the story but by the fourth film evolved into Ty Simpkins who had large chunks of the film focusing on his stupid pointless underdeveloped family shit.

Man the villain in Mad Max 1 is my least favourite villain of all time. So annoying how the hairy fucker kept screaming nightrider. Also a douche, but the unlikeable kind. Dennis Nedry from JP on the other hand is one of my favourite douche villains. What do you think of Dennis Nedry?

Also, what movie characters do you dislike / found annoying?

Misery I thoroughly enjoyed, and I felt there was nothing that could’ve made the film execution better considering how simple the story is. Kathy Bates was great in it The Omen I felt was pretty good. I’m not too scared by horror, though some very creepy parts in the movie I found. Like the line in the photos of people, and the idea of Damien’s real parents. How the characters could have died at any moment like the guy who got impaled gave it more suspense. I also read about the stuff that happened during the filming of the film which makes it even more eerie. Most of the horror movies I’ve seen are shit but I’m not really scared by horror movies. Halloween is probably the most scary horror I’ve seen I guess. What do you think is the scariest horror movie?

What’s your favourite Jack Nicholson performance?
I thought he was really good acting in The Shining, though I don’t think Jack Torrance is a very good villain. He’s useless fighter and only killed one guy in the film. My favourite movie of his is The Shining but my favourite performance from him is One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

What did you think of Shutter Island?
I liked it but it didn’t blow me away. I thought it was a solid film though.

To Catch a Thief was average by Hitchcock standards. Some parts are more engaging while others are much less engaging. Tell me which ones you’ve seen, and I can recommend the ones you should see.

As for Psycho, I’ve seen the original of course, Psycho 2, and the remake. As you said, nothing compares to the original, but the others aren’t horrible.

Man, the villain in Jurassic World was pathetic. I was glad when he died, though it was a stupid scene. The writing for the film in general was garbage. One of the worst movie screenplays I’ve ever witnessed. What movies have your favourite dialogue?
My top 2 are easily Pulp Fiction and Double Indemnity, both snappy dialogue, though I really like any Tarantino movie dialogue.

Willie from Indy 2, Jar Jar, Scarlett O’Hara, and most minor characters from MCU movies annoy me. I hate John Connor too. He is smug little asshole. I almost always hate the kids in movies. Ones that don’t annoy me though, which come to mind are The Shining, To Kill a Mockingbird and Jurassic Park III. The one I hate the most though is Mathilda from The Professional. Also Donnie Darko. Both teen shit. What didn’t you like about Brad Pitt’s character in Se7en?

I liked Misery, and would recommend it. The film I found it most similar to is Dial M for Murder.

Man The Evil Dead Trilogy was awesome. Ash Williams is one of my all-time favourite movie characters now. Still not quite sure what I think of Evil Dead II though. My favourite of the trilogy would be Army of Darkness, just for how ridiculous it is.

Yeah the twist in Shutter Island was pretty unspectacular. I wished it could’ve been more ambiguous like Interstellar, which had too much exposition. It’s a pretty polarising movie. Have you seen Interstellar? One of the most polarising movies I’ve seen. Chris Nolan I like but I don’t understand the people on flickchart who seem to worship him. Some of the twists don’t work for me in his films either. They seem to be executed at the wrong time and ruin the tone of the film. How about Forrest Gump? The Tree of Life? Also, Kill Bill, Cloud Atlas, and any of Paul Thomas Anderson’s films? If you’ve seen any of those movies what are your thought on them?

Rebecca - a top 10 of Hitchcock's filmography
Spellbound - I love this one more than most people around here
Shadow of a Doubt - Hitchcock's personal favorite of his own work
The Wrong Man
The Trouble With Harry

I'd then consider To Catch a Thief along with another Hitchcock film on the same level: The Man Who Knew Too Much (the remake).

I AM BACK !!!

Actually my class 12 selection examinations were going so I Kept myself away from Flickchart, Facebook, Twitter and other God knows whatever fuckin thing I Had an account on....Months Long examinations hate it.

No man I haven't seen The thing but I would definitely check it out soon.

I really used to like Gladiator but nowadays I find it immensely overrated.I prefer Braveheart to it by landslide.
Hey Pulp as your no.1 ..wow that's great movie.Certainly One of the Tarantino's best (I prefer Inglourious Basterds) but it"s one of my fab.of his too .Waiting for hateful eight to shake that list a bit.
I prefet kill bill vol 2 over it too compared to its predecessor.
I actually haven't seen The good the bad and the ugly.How is it?? I CAN SEE it is one of your favourite movie ever??

Yeah everything went like butter .Literally he be he

Thanks for the recommendations man,I will definitely check out Haloween and the thing.

Braveheart is awesome. Granted it is not for history geeks like.I mean It is a very fictionalized account of the actual events.Historically inaccurate in every aspect.But it is very fun movie (Personally top 20 material for me).Mel Gibson is awesome in this movie.KICK ASS.Highly quotable too.I'll definitely recommend it.

Shawshank redemption was AWESOME.I first saw it in 2014 and after watching it I was like-- really?? It is not that good man.I definitely thought it to be overrated. BUT recently I rewatched it again and fucking loved it.Great movie it is.Highly quotable.And filled with great performances and a great dramatic story.Highly rewatchable too.

have you seen it??
What are your thoughts on it??

Hey how was the force awakens? ?

I couldn't believe how bad Jurassic World was. Worse than JP3 imo. One of the worst-written films I've ever seen, filled with unbelievably stupid and cliche moments. My favourite part of the whole movie was the end fight scene but that was just brainless garbage. The dinosaurs I found to be the only thing I liked but I didn't think they looked real. It was very detailed CGI but in the original Jurassic Park I thought the animatronic T-Rex looked real. I have no idea why it's considered one of the years best films, it's total shit.

Tarantino is good thing, he doesn't want to make a shit movie he keeps saying in interviews. I'm real excited for The Hateful Eight. Most of Nolan's films have unnecessary twists. I actually really enjoyed Interstellar but it's heavily flawed.
Same with movies like Se7en. I don't understand why so many people consider it one of the best films ever. Also Gladiator. I think both are solid movies though, I can't actually find anything I didn't like about Gladiator. Actually I'm a sucker for Forrest Gump but most people like it for the sentimental factor, but that's not really why I like it. Global ranking doesn't make a lot of sense. Like why the pretty boring old movie Ikiru is in flickchart's top 20, higher than GBU, but Psycho is only ranked 40? And I compared the statistics of The Dark Knight to Ikiru and TDK is supposed to be vastly better according to the percentage win and users with it as no. 1 and in top 20. I don't know why so many artsy fartsy movies are ranked so high. Most of them are boring pieces of shit. Also Lawrence of Arabia is rated real low.
What would be among your favourite movie scenes?

What are your favourite Christmas movie?
Also your favourite Halloween movie and favourite any other holiday-themed movie?

Yeah definitely check out braveheart.I hope you'll enjoy it.
I actually don't like star wars franchise.I mean A new hope was good but come on it was devoid of emotions.Princes leia watching her planet get destroyed by Darth Vader but showed no expression of regret or even sadness.Wooden acting.Nor is Luke Skywalker a good hero.He is so clichéd that I laugh at amusement.

I expected empire to be better than the original.But it turned out to be a pile of junk.The whole Vader being lukes father made more plot holes rather than making the whole story more entertaining.

And Return of the Jedi.Man o man.How much a movie can be bad,one won't be knowing untill and unless they have witnessed this pile of turd.Dancing teddy bears and aliens!! Really.And luke and princes twins?? Come on .Simply put .Jedi is top 10 worst movie ever created IMO it sucked.
And let us not talk about those shitty boring overly bad acted prequels specially phantom menance and clones (I at least enjoyed Revenge of the sith.Which has that Anakin vs Obi wan fight.But s till it was not great)
So no I wont be watching a force awakens because I know I will be disappointed

Yeah I am pumped up for hateful 8 which I think would be great.The trailer intrigued me .The cast looks great.Hope I'll enjoy it.

He he yeah our no. Of movies seen are pretty close.What are the chances!!!

Revenge of the shit he he he I mean really that's what it deserved.

I liked rocky ll no where as good as the original but still watchable.
Wow now that's a tough question.Sly Stallone vs Arnie.Arnie is much more cooler but Stallone is the better actor.Arnnie has given T2 which is higher than all other stallone movieS in my list but Stallone has given FUCKING RAMBO AND DOUBLE FUCKING ROCKY.I AM GONNA GO WITH STALLONE BUT MAN I LOVE BOTH.

Sorry for the late reply. My computer cable blew up, and all replacemtns didn't fit so I had to use my phone which is slow and can't load much at all except match-ups. I have new one now though.

Happy new year by the way! I love It's a Wonderful Life and Die Hard. Also Die Hard 2 which I feel is very underrated. The Apartment is also a very poignant Billy Wilder film in my top 50. I love It's a Wonderful Life from start to finish, not just the end. Some really goood other scenes like with the old doctor guy who's son died, and when George is handing out the money at the bank.

I'm not really a fan of modern christmas movies, most seem to be Hugh Grant/Vince Vaughn type rom-coms, or have annoying kids doing dumb shit. So I usually prefer the very stupid christmas movies like Harold & Kumar if they're modern. I thought Halloween movie was very good, but I don't think it's aged well, but only because of all the rip-off movies today that copy it. The score, direction and Michael Myer's mask was brilliant though. One of the things I hate about horror/monster movies is any character who is there just to be a useless piece of shit and cause problems. And then if something bad happens to them we're expected to feel sorry for them? It's like JP3, the kids parents should be the real villains. I shouldn't have to expect characters in a horror movie that aren't annoying, but it happens so often that I have to give Halloween a plus for NOT having any. I still need to see other Kurt Russell films. Wait a minute...The HAteful Eight is like The Thing. Kurt Russell trapped in an isolated place in the snow, with people he can't trust. I still haven't seen it but I'm real excited for The Hateful Eight as well. I still haven't seen The Force Awekens either. I saw the prequels recently though, and I thought the first was meh, the second was okay but shit screenplay (still not as bad as Jurassic World), and the third I found very underrated film. The only big problem I had with it is it got stuck some of the stupid shit from the previous ones like Mitoclorians. What are your thoughts on the prequels and the star wars films in general? Also what did you think of The Force Awakens?

Yep Ikiru is one of the least iconic Kurosawa films let alone modern films, so it's completely undeserved of its spot.

I agree with you, Jurassic World's best character is Owen Grady by far, but that's only really because he's played by Chris Pratt. It's like if you get Bill Murray to play his usual self in a piece of shit with a bunch of idiots Bill Murray would be the best character by far just because he's Bill Murray. Say, what Bill Murray movies have you seen? And what are your thoughts on them?
I heard he's in a relatively new christmas film directed by Sofia Coppola who did Lost in Translation with him in it, which is a film I love.

There are countless movie scenes I love, but my indefinite top 10 would go something like:
1-Good, Bad and the Ugly graveyard scene and ending
2-The Usual Suspects ending
3-It's a Wonderful Life ending
4-Hard to choose a favourite moment in Pulp Fiction, but any scene EXCEPT for the one with Butch talking to Fabienne.
5-Blood test scene in The Thing
6-Coin Toss scene in No Country For Old Men
7-The volcano scene in return of the king
8-Toy Story 3 ending
9-Ferry scene in The Dark Knight
10-Cropduster scene in North by Northwest

Most of the scenes I just found really powerful or made me go HOLY SHIT this is good. Films that changed my life I guess would be Fight Club, and It's a Wonderful Life. They are the two that changed my outlook the most and I'd probably be very different if I never saw them. The first two Toy Story's defined my childhood and the third one was just like nostalgia porn fan service. Also Being There, The Apartment, Cool Hand Luke (I made the link between Kubrick films now, it's like a way less disturbing version of A Clockwork Orange) and Taxi Driver are films I can relate to a lot.

By the way do you watch any TV shows?
A lot of newer ones today are more like movies.

Re: Freddy vs. Jason...listen I know it isn't a masterpiece or anything, but I thought it was a shit ton of fun...and frankly, it's fun to see them on the screen together raising hell. By this point, Freddy was a pure comedy character, but ultimately...I thought the movie was a super fun experience...

I love Groundhog Day, it's an underrated masterpiece imo. I'm so glad I watched it. Ghostbusters is pretty good too. I'll probably check out the second one around the time the reboot comes out. Remaking Ghostbusters is a godawful idea to me though. He was epic in Zombieland.
Caddyshack had its funnny moments but I preferred him in the film to the film in general.
Lost in Translation is like a light film that I really like the atmosphere of. It's kind of like the movies where the characters are just hanging out and having a good time. I didn't really like him in Osmosis Jones, and the Garfield films are terrible but in a way that I laugh at how terrible they are. Terrible CGI as well. Bill Murray only joined on because he thought a Coen brother was directing it but misread the script writer's name "Cohen". You seen any Coen Brother movies?

Being There is Peter Sellers but with like zero slapstick. And it's much like Forrest Gump but waaayy more laid back.

I agree with you on the pacing in revenge of the sith. I wish Anakin didn't choose to turn over to the dark side in the span of like 15 minutes. Also a few problems with the dialogue but not nearly as bad as the first two. From the start I never had much hope for the new star wars movie. I expcet it to be better than phantom menace, but reaching the heights of the original and empire seem like an impossible feat, so I readied myself for disappointment. Everything I've heard about the film is mixed reviews so I'm not knowing what . My expectations are about the same level for quality as the new star trek films since it's JJ Abrams and the trailers aren't too bad.

Damn, I'm really looking forward to watching Ash vs. Evil Dead. How I Met Your Mother is also one of the tv series on my watch list. Neil Patrick Harris is epic in Harold & Kumar.
TV shows I've watched in their entirety are:
Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Fargo (Kinda continues on from the movie), Sherlock, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Six Feet Under, Firefly, Louie, The IT Crowd, The Office US version (still want to see UK version), Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, Community, South Park, Rick and Morty,
Shows I need to finish:
The Wire, True Detective, Dexter, Oz, Band of Brothers, Fear the Walking Dead, House of Cards, Mr. Robot, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer...There may be others but I can't remember.
I remember I used to watch House ages ago. One of my favourite episodes was the "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" one. I'll have to watch the series again someday. Hugh Laurie is badass!
Who are among your favourite TV characters?

The Seventh Seal was alright for me, but nothing special. It definitely got better as it moved along; the first hour or so really bored me and the story didn't feel like it was going anywhere. Pretty weird artsy kind of movie. The chess scenes were by far the most interesting, though you probably get the point of what it symbolizes even if you haven't seen the movie.
What are your thoughts on artsy films?

Escape from New York and Big Trouble in Little China were campy fun, but LA Imdidnt really like. I don't know if it was satire of itself how stupid it was, or it really was just plain stupid, but it felt like a rehash of the first one. Kurt Russell is pretty badass. What are your thoughts on those films?

I haven't seen any of the True Grits, but Coens tend to be kinda cult classic movies. They've really grown on me. I saw Fargo a couple of years ago and thought it was merely alright, but now it easily lands in my top 50. It age like fine ass wine.

I'll probably see Star Wars as soon as possible, so next week hopefully. I might see The Hateful Eight and the Revenant around the same time as well.

Michael Scott, Walter White, Lorne Malvo, Tyrion Lannister, Daryl Dixon, Dr. House, Jayne Cobb, Omar Little and Sherlock, Watson and Moriarty from the BBC version are among my favourite TV characters. Ricky Gervais is in UK version; how is Muppets most wanted? Also what your thoughts on muppets Movies?

I'm not a huge avid game-player, mostly because I'm kind of a noob haha, the only consoles I got are PS2 and Wii so yeah. My favourite games would easily be the cult classics Tombi! and Tombi! 2, followed by Portal 2. My parents only really got crap games usually growing up, like stuff based on movies, but they're usually dogshit. Most of the stuff I play now often is on Steam, I'm currently playing a bit of Team Fortress 2, Skyrim and GTA V. I also sometimes play League of Legends but a lot of the people on it are douchebag noobs and annoying fanboys haha. I also really like The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead telltale games because they're more like interactive movies. Also play a lot of Tekken and Plants vs Zombies. You seem to be pretty big fan of the horror genre. What are your thoughts on zombie movies?

Also, any horror movies you'd recommend that are actually scary? Because most of the stuff I see is pretty lame.

I actually don't read that much. Probably because im from a small town kind of area in New Zealand which is pretty much a small town country in itself. So the libraries are pretty shit and full of teen shit and boring shit, and it's hard to find a good book like the original Dickens or Sherlock Holmes books, or good comics in the correct order. As for Marvel or DC I'd probably have to go with the Marvel because I find the lore a lot more fascinating and huge with characters and unique powers. Don't get me wrong, I love Batman and the noir vibes from it, but the other superheroes like Green Lantern and Flash don't come close to me. Actually I've read a few Marvel comics and I find them IMMEASURABLY superior to the MCU films, It's more than just mindless recycled bullshit and is actually well-written with actual characters who aren't just one-dimensional. I don't understand how any fan of the comics can consider the films adequate adaptations. I definitely want to get more into them but it's ridiculously hard to find them. I also really want to read Watchmen because I've heard it's one of the greatest graphic novels of its time, and even far better than the movie, which I loved. Who are among your favourite comic book characters?

Coens have a pretty weird style. The Big Lebowski is definitely a cult classic, but I'm not a huge fan of it. A lot of weird things I just don't understand in it. It's considered a masterpiece by some though so I'd definitely recommend it. Fargo and No Country for Old Men I highly recommend however. Great films about crime and murder that sit comfortably in my top 50, which get better with age. I'd say those three would definitely show you the style of their movies.

I also play Minecraft, but only with mod packs, because the regular version I find kinda shitty. Also finding a good server is ridiculously difficult. I've been trying to get more into games too but most of them, nowadays seem to be shitty recycled gun first person shooters.

I remember watching most of those classic muppet movies when I was younger. I definitely liked the original muppet version and The Christmas carol which probably would've been my favourites,

I havent seen The Exorcist yet. I here very mixed opinions about it. I try to watch more horror films but a lot of the time they're so boring for me. I tried watching elm street remake and thought it was a piece of shit. I'll probably try your recommendations though. I've seen a couple of the saw sequels but I thought they were kind of lame and just gory. I also tried watching the first Saw movie, but never finished it but I probably will when I feel like it. Some of the traps from the films intrigued me. I saw a film kind of like them recently called Circle (50 people wake up in a room and every two minutes one of them dies, and they get to vote on who dies next) it was pretty good 12 Angry Men type thriller.
What are your thoughts on the Saw movies?

So, I just saw Star Wars 7 and I think it definitely was a step up from Jedi. I see the huge similarities between this and the original, but heck, I almost like it as much as it, but I'm not one who grew up with the Star Wars films. I didn't think there was any way it could touch the quality of Empire, and I was right, but I enjoyed the shit out of it though, and the new major characters I really liked. I thought it was like the new Star Trek films quality for me and I was right. I like how it shows the fascinating universes in a more modern movie, like the new Star Trek movies. What are your thoughts on The Force Awakens?

Say, do you have Letterboxd? If not It is a movie kind of website a lot of flickchart users are on. It's kind of like a log book for movies and you can rate and make lists of them too. I sometimes use it instead of flickchart for making ranking lists because flickchart keeps giving me the same repetitive match ups over and over a lot.

Also, is your username on YouTube Gordon McNulty? Just that I saw this comment on a movie-related video once a month or so ago and he had the Same Travolta dancing profile pic as you so I thought, could this be quite coincidence?

When I was a kid I remember I watched all of the older Muppet movies. But yeah, like you, I only add movies I can really remember well, and only if I've seen from start to finish. My film count would probably be around 1200 if I didn't include.

I love 12 Angry Men. Just amazing how a film set mostly in one little room with just people talking can be such a fantastic film. Every character is very well done. Sidney Lumet is a great director, his films really get me to think about social dilemmas, and his characters are always really layered and well performed.

I agree Star Wars 7 was pretty much a rehash and almost complete copy of 4 for the most part. What really shined for me was the characters, and mostly the opportunities it opens for the future sequels.To be honest I find most of the Star Wars movies shit, but 4 and 5 I find are very good.

My username on Letterboxd is the same as on here.

I'm not really into the watching people play games on YouTube unless it's something real special. Most of my subscriptions are actually pretty shitty uploads. Most are movie-related channels. I still really like the YouTube site though, it's definitely one of the best. Sucks about the fair use situation going on right now though. I've been trying to get more into games lately so I'll probably check out 5NAF.

Regarding a few of the classics I watched:

King Kong - Extremely well made for its time. I wouldn't exactly say it was super entertaining for me personally but it was enjoyable.

Touch of Evil - Brilliant camerawork and direction from Orson Welles here. I was extremely tired when I watched it, and had to watch the second half the next day, but I guess it's kind of like The Third Man, either you like it or you find it meh. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

The Lady Vanishes - Another very solid and entertaining Hitchcock mystery thriller. Definitely worth checking out if you like his other films.

The Conversation - I really liked this, it kind of reminded me of Taxi Driver and Vertigo. I loved Gene Hackman's character.

Ed Wood - Really funny seeing how Plan 9 From Outer Space came to be, and I love Depp and Landau's performances. I found it a hilarious movie, and appreciate Plan 9 even more now. Very stupid but hilarious movie.

The Kid - I don't have any problems with it, but I didn't love it that much. Definitely a very good film, but I found it way too short to compete with Chaplin's other films. Still really good though

What are your thoughts on Charlie Chaplin's films?

Oh, and how was Ex Machina?

No, I haven't seen Murder on the Orient Express, or Clue yet. Plan to watch those soon. Really like whodunnit movies.

Yeah, I like watching interviews too. Surprising how many people love to complain about Tarantino movies I've noticed. But yeah, almost all of the channels I'm subscribed to are movie-related.

I can't remember ever seeing very many video game movies. I though Wreck-It Ralph was really fun. There were the Tomb Raider ones which were kind of "eh?". Same for Prince of Persia. I think I saw the first Resident Evil which I thought was cool, but then they made so many sequels.
Most of the others are complete dogshit which completely mess up the lore from the games. I've heard Mortal Kombat is fun though. No idea what warcraft movie is gonna be like, though I haven't played the game.

Yeah I love the movie Fargo. Just astounds me how much it's grown on me over time. Not really a fan of Big Lebowski, but some people consider it the holy grail of movies, so it may be either a huge hit or miss for you.

I hate most modern comedy, seems to be mostly shock value. I loathe most of the stuff like This is the End. Sigh... I also hate how slapstick seems to have devolved over time (or maybe it's just me) but cartoons seem to have had stupider and stupider characters over time, nowadays they can make Patrick Star look like Dr. House. Mostly LSD trips for toons nowadays, but I guess it's better than a lot of the disney channel teen shit. I hate most cartoons nowadays though. Rick and Morty and Adventure Time are a couple of exceptions which come to mind. Do you like any cartoons?

When it comes to slapstick it can be hit or miss for me. Chaplin I think is pretty good. Buster Keaton makes me go "wow" with a lot of his stunts. I love Keaton's deadpan humour. Like Bill Murray. I really like Peter Sellers though. Slapstick or none. He'd be one of my favourite comedians. Jacques Clouseau and Harry Callahan would probably be my favourite movie detectives. Hbu, Who are some of your favourite comedians and movie detectives?

I still need to catch up on a lot of the Oscar nominations. I'm really glad Leo got the oscar, though I haven't even watched The Revenant, haha. I think the kid in Room was really good, and surprised he didn't get a nomination. That's one of the best child performances I've seen. I think Brie Larson deserved the win though. Room was a pretty darn good film I'd say. Eddie Redmayne nomination, I dunno, I haven't seen the Danish Girl, but he was laughably terrible in Jupiter Ascending. How about you?

True Grit. John Wayne was very badass in it. I liked the relationship between the characters as well as the story. A very fun western which I found relatively low scope, but still very entertaining unlike El Dorado which I felt was way too reserved and just not...epic enough! But True Grit was perfect.

Superman was pretty good. I think it's a landmark in superhero movies for sure, but I don't think some things aged very well. I really liked Christopher Reeve as Superman and Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor, and there were a few moments I thought were pretty clever. I loathed the ending though. Still a lot better than most of today's superhero movies. X-Men is the only superhero franchise still running today that I like. Hopefully Apocalypse doesn't suck bawls. I though Days of Future Past was a perfect revival for the franchise.

As for Charlie's films I would rank them as so:
1-Modern Times - I like how it's fast paced and something's always happening, as well as how I can't predict where the story's gonna go. It's also a sweet film and sometimes nice to watch something that isn't so heavy.
2-City Lights - This was the first silent film I ever watched. I really like the execution of the ending and the overall message as well as the storyline with the drunk guy, I thought that was really neat. I feel like I don't like it as much as I should though.
3-The Great Dictator - Really like the ending, and Chaplin's double performance, as well as his relationship with the characters.
4-The Kid - Really neat film. I love a lot of the scenes such as the fight scene. To be honest I love the relationships Chaplin has with the characters in his films.
As with most silent films I usually see something which is funny, and acknowledge that it's funny but not actually laugh. I mean I know it's clearly very clever humour a lot of the time but the lack of noise just doesn't work for me, though recently I've become more accustomed to silent comedies.

Phew! How about you? How would you rank Chaplin's films? And what are your thoughts on each of them? And if you've seen any of the films I mentioned what do you think of them?

Hmm, I can't actually think of many whodunit movies at all. I guess the animated movie Hoodwinked? It's okay I guess, kind of seems to try and be the same humour as Shrek. The "who" it is isn't spectacular at all but it's an enjoyable film I think. The other would be Charade. Glad I checked it out, got lots of twists and turns I definitely didn't expect and it's a pretty fun movie. By the way I watched both Murder on the Orient Express, and The Hateful Eight. My thoughts on each:

Murder on the Orient Express - Honestly I was a bit confused. I think the thing it's most similar to is those Agatha Christie murder story TV adaptations from the UK. It was pretty clever though, and I definitely didn't expect it.
As for
The Hateful Eight -
**********THE HATEFUL EIGHT SPOILERS***********
Holy shit, this was good. It felt like The Thing. Definitely in the league of most of Tarantino's films for me (top 50). Probably my no.1 or no.2 for 2015. Not sure. But wow. Another batch of that crisp Tarantino dialogue. Every member of the cast was fan-friggin-tastic. Every character was a scene-stealer, The score was amazing and atmospheric, felt like The Thing. What I especially loved (as with a lot of Tarantino's films) is how bloody unexpected the things that happened in it were. I would've never have guessed they would've died in that order! I assumed Kurt Russell would've lasted to the end, and Jennifer Jason Leigh be one of the first. Really good,
The film is Fresh. As. Fuck. And it still has a whole lot of re-watchability. Every character was great but I guess my favourite would've been Walton Goggins. I really liked what I've seen of him on Justified, and he really shined in this movie.
How about you?
What did you think of The Hateful Eight, and who was your favourite character?

Oh, and did you hear about Kurt Russell and the antique guitar? XD

I still really need to check out clue, I just keep forgetting about it.
I really can't think of many, so what are your favourite who-dunits?
Favourite Hateful Eight character?

Oh, I really like Hugh Jackman as an actor. The references in Deadpool were amazingly hilarious. I didn't think The Wolverine was that bad, but X-Men Origins was pure shit. I really hope they don't make another like it, and Hugh Jackman doesn't retire as him.

No, I haven't seen The Gold Rush or The Circus yet, which seem to be the other two big Chaplin films. It'll be interesting to see what they're like seeing as my opinions on his movies are a bit mixed right now.
Concerning Sherlock, jr. The stunts were amazing. Like how did Buster Keaton have the balls to do those? And a lot of them tied in really cleverly to the story. Certainly a good film.

Hmm, I really like the style of older films so I'll definitely be checking Hail Caesar when it comess out.

Detective movies can be pure masterpieces, I love the ones which are character studies or studies of society in general, like Chinatown. It's also fun for just a stylish and badass one like The Maltese Falcon.
How was The Usual Suspects?

I really like Cary Grant. It's always a pleasure to see that he's in a movie. Rom-Coms tend to be kind of bleh but a lot of the time he makes them a lot better. He kind of reminds me of a charming in James Bond or George Clooney kind of way.

I used to have a lot of Agatha Christie books but haven't read them in years. I remember they were very good though.

Ugh, unfortunately I have to agree with you on the X-Men Apocalypse. I really hope it doesn't become some Hunger Games type of thing. I couldn't finish either of the first two movies of that franchise. I don't really like Jennifer Lawrence as an actress either. Pretty much all of the characters I've seen her play have been someone who's pissed off at some guy for doing something and her being mean to him. Actually yes that's literally every movie I've seen her in. It makes me depressed when I picture X-Men without Wolverine. I hope they don't replace Hugh Jackman with some teenshit actor.

Yeah, the violent parts in Hateful Eight really reminded me of Evil Dead at times, haha.
Yes Tatum I think actually has a lot of potential as an actor. It's surprising, it's like George Clooney, Matthew McConaughey or Ryan Gosling! If he stayed away from the rom com films more often and leaned more towards the serious stuff he could be great.
Actually have you seen Foxcatcher? Channing Tatum is excellent in that and so is Steve Carrell. Oh and Mark Ruffalo I really like. Actually practically all of the actors for the avengers have far better performances in other movies. Uusally in the more gritty films where they don't have to be cheesy.

Yeah I've heard the Alien Isolation game is great! I love the second Alien movie. Excellent action. I appreciate the first one more than I enjoy. Brilliant atmosphere and design, but Oh man is it slow! I guess the overuse of the slasher genre brings it down for me as well. Anyway my favourite of that genre will always be The Thing.
I think I've seen the third and fourth one as well ages ago but I didn't like them as much but I thought they were alright. And as for Prometheus, mostly kinda stupid, but good visuals and a few good characters.
I need to re-watch the Predator and Alien vs Predator movies.
What are your thoughts on the Alien and Predator franchises?

My least favourite Coens movie would probably be O Brother Where Art Thou. I love the music, and I think it's a good film but I don't remember it very well and I guess I have negative memories about it because I had to study it in class for school which can pretty much ruin movies for me haha. The one I'm most unsure about is The Big Lebowski for sure. How was Fargo and The Big Lebowski?

The Usual Suspects has gotta be one of my favourite movies. The ending for me just blew me away. It blew me the fuck away. I didn't really expect it and so it caught me off guard, but yes, the ending to that and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly are my 2 favourite movie scenes of all time. I love Kevin Spacey btw. He's great in House of Cards, but my favourite performance would probably be this. Oh, and LA Confidential is a goddamn masterpiece of the noir.
What's your favourite Kevin Spacey performance?

Wes Anderson is a pretty neat director. Most of his films seem to be pretty light-hearted and quirky as usual, usually with a small dash of romance. Its really neat. My favourite is The Grand Budapest Hotel followed closely by Fantastic Mr. Fox and Moonrise Kingdom.
What is your favourite Wes Anderson movie and your thoughts on him in general?
Oh, and your favourite Wes Anderson character? Mine would have to be M.Gustave from GBH. He's classy as fuck.

It'd be really interesting to see Grant as Indy's father instead of Connery, but I think it could've worked. I think Hitchcock cast his films really well (maybe not Vertigo, that was kind of weird Stewart with Kim Novak). I couldn't imagine Jimmy Stewart in North by Northwest for example. Speaking of alternate universes? Have you seen Source Code? Pretty underrated Groundhog Day type of movie that's certainly worth a watch. Film it's most similar to though is Edge of Tomorrow.

Oh yeah, I'm not really sure why I changed it to Soda, but I just wanted to get rid of this one. Couldn't think of a name so yeah. The name "Lukiushaufoy" was supposed to be a dumb pun on the character Lucius Malfoy from Harry Potter and a character from something else when I started Flickchart, just for the time being, and was pissed when I found I couldn't change it.

Downey Jr. - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (fucking love that movie)
Jeff Bridges - The Big Lebowski as well, but still need to see his other films, like True Grit remake. Really liked his portrayal as The Dude though.
Edward Norton - Fight Club
Mickey Rooney - *Mickey Rourke, haha. Can't believe I'm saying Iron Man 2. I don't think it's a good movie but it's kind of enjoyable in a stupid way if you turn your brain way off. Definitely need a re-watch Sin City which I don't think I enjoyed as much as I should've.
Gwyneth Paltrow - Se7en
Chris Hemsworth - Star Trek (2009)
Tom Hiddleston - Avengers I guess? Need to see other stuff from him.
Anthony Hopkins - The Silence of the Lambs
Chris Evans - Captain America: The Winter Soldier, though I really like him in Snowpiercer
Hugo Weaving - LOTR Return of the King
Samuel L. Jackson - Pretty much what you said
Mark Ruffalo - Zodiac. I probably like him in anything though, really chill guy who's enjoyable to watch.
Josh Brolin - No Country for Old Men
Guy Pearce - Memento
Ben Kingsley - Schindler's List, but honourable mention for Lucky Number Slevin, because I don't really ever think that much about Schindler's List.
Robert Redford -The Sting
Paul Rudd - Anchorman
Michael Douglas - Would you believe it? Ant-Man is the only major film I've seen from him. Oh well I've seen plenty more of his father so Paths of Glory for Kirk Douglas haha.
Yeah, Wtf? There's barely any stand out performances for MCU despite them being talented actors. I don't blame the actors though, it's the shit adaptations they have to work with for sure. Portrayals like Hemsworth as Thor or the cookie cutter clean take of Captain America that Evans has to deal with just show that they have to play two-dimensional characters. They don't seem to make the films about the great characters, just about shitty explosions and fight scenes, preferably with a big fight with a forgettable villain at the end. I thought Spacey did a good job on Luthor at least. Not as good as Gene Hackman but I've heard Eisenberg is just like what he's like in the trailer, so gonna put Spacey above Eisenberg because I don't hold faith in Snyder. What'd you think of the Luthor portrayals? And what are your thoughts on Zack Snyder and his filmography btw? I think him and Whedon are going down the same route as George Lucas.

Oh yeah, I think it could be anyone except Rick or Carl because he says that if anyone talks to take out his other eye and feed it to his father. It really pisses me off that they did that cliffhanger with the finale considering the whole season was building up to Negan reveal (though Dean Morgan was fucking amazing as him). I guess it'd be Abraham, just because it had a couple of emotional moments with him an Eugene earlier which usually can mean death for one of them. That and how Negan goes "Taking it like a champ!" because the person tries to get back up after getting hit. Just seems like something Abraham would do. That or I think Maggie, just for the sake that it would make it all the worse for Glenn's arc, and even more disturbing that Negan would say that to a pregnant woman as he beat her to death. Really think it would be any though. Don't think they'd kill Glenn after all that dumpster business, but they could stick to the novels. I'll be pissed if it turns out just to be Aaron though. You?

I really liked the first two Predator movies from what I remember. I'm not sure about the crossover mythology though. Very unsure. I think it's an interesting idea for combination of a predator and Xenomorph but I don't exactly know how I feel about it. I guess it's kind of cool but it could also ruin the lore for me if I knew more.

I've seen 80 out of 478 movies on your list.

Rope with Cary Grant would be interesting. Jimmy plays an asshole in that so I could see Cary Grant playing the arrogant type in that role.

Jurassic Park is without a doubt the definitive dinosaur flick, just like Jaws is the definitive shark flick. I can't think of any other dinosaur movies I really like except maybe Land Before Time which I haven't seen since I was a kid. I haven't read Jurassic Park book, but the movie is maybe the ultimate blockbuster, and it actually has good characters and a good story.

Yeah when I saw Halloween I thought I heard the kid be called Tommy Doyle and thought "wait a minute...". I connected the dots thought because of the '78 :P. I'll probs watch Prince of Darkness and Mouth of Madness this week, I've mostly been watching shitty superhero binge and almost all of them have been boring and mediocre. So, yep, the fact these movies have so many fanboys is beyond me because in comparison to the source material they are complete and utter shit. I'm getting pretty sick of the stupid cameos in trailers and the stupid "big fight" at the end of every film.

I don't know how I feel about Zack Snyder. Watchmen is a crowning achievement for the genre (though I haven't read graphic novel), but 300 I'm unsure of. I like how they look like comic books. The action in 300 is supposed to be bad ass but it's kinda really cheesy. I guess it's what you call a "guilty pleasure". I haven't seen much of Legend of Guardians or Sucker Punch, but from what I've seen from Sucker Punch is complete shit.

Any other performances you like in films you dislike?
Definitely the case for me with Daniel Day-Lewis in Gangs of New York, which is pretty much every other character is shit, even Leo's, jeez. Also I don't like Dracula or Frankenstein but Lugosi and . Well they're not terrible movies but I was definitely underwhelmed. Frankenstein was almost nothing like the book. Hopefully Bride of Frankenstein is good though.

Dr. No was great. It was actually really well written in parts. I haven't seen James Bond in a long time, but I really liked this. The introduction, Sean Connery, that fucking score! I look forward to seeing the rest of the Bond films.

Yeah maybe Michonne. The show played a lot from her POV shot, so it would make sense. I wouldn't forgive the shitty romance arc with Rick though. Irritating cliffhanger, but yeah, Dean Morgan absolutely killed it.

What did you think of Casablanca?
And how do you think Abram's Star Trek's compare to the original film saga, and The Force Awakens?

Just saw you had The Shining as your number 1. Had to add you. It's not my number 1, but it's close, all time best horror no question.
