Thanks for sharing that with me, dude. I must confess, it sounds very interesting. We know for a fact that both Somerset and Doe share similar views on society and the moral decay prevalent in it. Both are averse to apathy. They just choose different ways to cope with it. Somerset accepts his seclusion with resignation, while Doe decides to take matters into his own hands through his cleverly-devised crimes.

I can't understand how Kevin Spacey's character fits in this theory though, unless the plan was masterminded by Somerset with Doe carrying out the execution. But then why would anyone go on with this kind of a suicide mission? I haven't seen the film in a while but most of the evidence seemed to suggest a one-man job. We are also shown a sketch of the killer with gloves and trench coat that looks just like Spacey. This reminds me of another crazy theory in No Country for Old Men--that Sheriff Bell and Chigurh are the same person!

One thing is for sure, my next viewing of Se7en is going to be awesome. Cheers!

I haven't watched Heat in a few years now, and am rather itching to again. Possibly the last truly great performances from both Pacino and De Niro, and the greatest single action sequence I have ever seen on film. A true epic, indeed!

Oh yeah, Alien has very little rewatchability. Once you know what's going to happen, the sense of mystery dies down considerably. It's one of those films that is thin on both story and plot. The one-dimensional characters do it no good.

You're right, I do have many films from 2007 on my list. It was a very strong year, easily the best of the decade. I have a total of 7 films in my top 60 alone. You should check out The Assassination of Jesse James. It's very much like Malick and moves slowly...but if you're in the right mood, it'll hit you like no other film.

So, true. Predator is superb. It has probably aged better than Terminator 2. I have no idea why I didn't notice this before but our top 20s have a lot in common. Taxi Driver, GF, GF II, Chinatown....you're quite the 70s guy, like me.

Good to know I'm not the only one who feels that way about Predator 2. It's severely underrated in my opinion.

The Matrix is a damn good film to have at no.1. You obviously love it a lot more than I do since it's a childhood favorite of yours. I saw it for the first time only a few years ago. Enjoyed it more with repeat viewings.

To be honest, I don't think The Big Lebowski is that hilarious. It's funny, sure, but I mainly love it because it is so relaxing to watch, without becoming boring. It is an incredibly likeable and pretty much perfect film.

You should definitely try viewing Seven Samurai again someday. Just go into it without any expectations and you should be in for a grand ride. Many might find it slow and a bit long (clocking in at 208 minutes), but the film manages to present likable and memorable characters and also one of the best stories I have ever seen unfold on screen.

A fun fact is that 'Samurai' is the inspiration for films that involve a group of people banding together in order to accomplish a great goal. It most certainly isn't for everyone due to its length, subtitles, and since it's in black and white, but if you can appreciate films with aspects like those, then you'll probably love it.

I don't really think of it as a sports film. Boxing's just LaMotta's outlet. It's just a way to exorcise the self-loathing, personal demons, etc. I don't think it's an exaggeration to call it one of the most well-made movies EVER. It's just that good. It'll probably be jumping up a few spots soon.

I'm actually the opposite; I cared for all four characters. In order for me it's probably Peter, Roger, Steve, and then Fran. She was okay. A bit of an annoyance, but she was alright. She surely topped half the characters in the remake (the female lead included).

I'd rather prefer if they would have had a small selection of characters like in the original instead of the great mass of them in the remake; it's a lot easier to squeeze in some great character development that way.

Excellent points, dude. All three films show their respective protagonists accomplishing the goals they'd set for themselves, only to eventually realize that it's lonely at the top. The performances in TSN can't really compete with those in GF II and Blood, though. DDL and Al freaking Pacino completely outclass Jesse. Not to say his performance was bad or anything, it was actually pretty good. But it's almost impossible to match such legendary roles.

Michael sitting alone like that toward the end perfectly summed up his entire journey in the first two films. What a cold, powerful moment. Goosebumps every time! I'm one of the few people who enjoys the Pacino parts much more than the De Niro ones in Part II. What about you?

Yeah. Out of the original and the remake, I would expect an actual zombie apocalypse to play out like the original. It feels more realistic in that regard. Personally, I'd rather have talkie-talkie and character development than just mindless zombie killing all the time.

My friend, having seen a litany of films, skits and sketches, my rational mind has come to the sound conclusion that there are very few movies more entertaining than Street Fighter (only 6-8 at most). People revere the quotability of Clerks or The Princess Bride. Well fair enough, but I say Street Fighter tops the both of them. It's a veritable goldmine of rib-tickling, frolicsome dialogue.

Hey, sorry about the lateness of my reply. I very often forget to check my profile page on here.

I am indeed a big fan of action movies. Without consulting my chart or anything, I would be very quick to tell anyone that my favorite genres are action and science fiction. (As such, things like The Matrix and Aliens come immediately to mind when I think of favorite movies.)

Of course, my #1 is a fantasy adventure...but with lots of action, of course.

Pretty damn good, actually. I've seen it twice, I think, but I haven't seen it since high school, early college. I thought Nelson did a fine job and Esposito made for a great villain. Slimy bastard, that guy. I loved that it wasn't afraid to take things in dark directions (what with there being kids and all). The chess thing was obvious, but it works. Sam Jackson was good. The kids' dialogue was overwritten, though. Some of it sounded like something that was written by somebody who had never actually been around black kids before. But overall, I thought it was a well-done re-imagining of Yojimbo. I'd like to give it another look next time I get the chance.

Oh yeah Menace is great, I'm pretty fascinated in American subcultures. I love it when movies are made with a feel of authenticity, and Menace just reeks of it. Really well done, and wasn't afraid to give it an appropriate ending. Plus Samuel L. is amazing the little bit he's in it.

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!

No, I haven't seen the original cut of Freaks. Unfortunately, the scenes cut from the original version of the film are likely destroyed by now. Studios back then didn't do a very good job of saving/preserving film footage that didn't end up in the final cut. The original version of Lawrence of Arabia, which was an Oscar-winning hit, also no longer exists and that movie is 30 years younger than Freaks. Crazy, right?

Perfectly understandable, I love them both almost equally for different reasons. Fellowship is the most perfect of the trilogy but Return of the King offers more entertainment and more badass and emotional scenes. I hate people bashing on Return of the King for the endings. I personally thought that all were needed, except the final one in order to perfectly sum up Lord of the Rings

The soundtrack in Django was amazing, I agree, and the first half was very enjoyable as well. I just feel the rest of the film could've been better. Lots of good stuff there, though. I liked the performances, Richardson's photography, and QT's trademark dark humor. As for the violence, he took it a bit too far this time. Never thought I'd say this for a Tarantinian flick lol. I guess it's maybe 'cause he was dealing with a sensitive topic like slavery.

Zodiac is growing on me, dude. It has risen slowly and steadily on my chart. Spookily atmospheric that flick is.

Haha... I don't know how to defend The Mummy. I watched it a lot as a kid and I still do! It's so satisfying. Maybe it's got something to do with my fascination with the Egyptian civilization. You could say I treasure it the same way everyone else does Indiana Jones.

Wait, that sounded weird. I meant to say that sometimes, and I repeat sometimes, I leave a comment that more or less displays my anticipation/expectations regarding the "unseen" film in question. Once I've actually seen the film, I compare it with the prediction I'd made in the comment, judging whether it turned out as good as I'd wished or didn't. It's a nasty practice that often makes me look like an idiot with bipolar disorder, so I now handle things in a more patient manner.

I see you've warmed up to Nolan of late. Inception and TDK sit inside your top 20 now. Cool.

That's pretty difficult to say. I've lost a lot of love for Tarantino in recent years, so I guess my current top 5 goes something like this:

1. Nolan (TDK, Memento, The Prestige)
2. Fincher (Zodiac, SE7EN, Fight Club)
3. Scorsese (Taxi Driver, Casino, Shutter Island)
4. Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Alien, Blade Runner, BHD)
5. PTA (There Will Be Blood, Boogie Nights, Magnolia)

You must be wondering, why do I rate Nolan higher than Fincher when 2 of the latter's films are in my top 5. I'd say that's because Nolan is a more consistent filmmaker. In fact, he's the ONLY director who has never let me down. Even Fincher and Marty have Panic Room and Cape Fear, respectively. Can't include Stanley 'cause I haven't had the opportunity to see enough of his work (same for Leone). Still gotta check out EWS and Barry Lyndon, but I do believe The Shining is a masterpiece.

Yeah, Spielberg and Cameron can be really awesome when they want. That doesn't happen an awful lot these days, though. Minority Report, Saving Private Ryan, and Jaws are Spielberg's best films, imo.

I have, right now, rather mixed feelings about it. i found the first hour paced slowly and wasn't overly interested but then things started to pick up and a few of the Samurai really stood out for me: Kambei, Katsushiri and Kikuchiyo-

From then on, I loved certain parts of the film but I was rather bored with certain other parts...Tough film to endure for me, I actually prefer both Yojimbo and Rashomon, maybe due to their duration being far shorter. Good film, will probably re-watch it by the end of the year!

Alright, to make my life easier (or lazier), I'll tell you what I told JC13:

"As for Kick-Ass 2, I'm excited for it. Cautiously excited, but excited nonetheless. Jeff Wadlow, the director, doesn't seem to have a good track record, seeing how his movies got mixed to slightly negative reviews. But I do like the previews so far. Besides, Matthew Vaughn, the director of the first Kick-Ass, helped to write the sequel's script and he's also producing it. And a lot of people who worked for Vaughn in the past are also involved, which tells me that they're all pretty confident about it. So yeah, there are some things I'm worried about (the director especially), but I'm looking forward to it."

I personally don't know if Jeff Wadlow will bring something new to the table. Maybe the action will be better / different, since he directed a martial arts movie in the past (Never Back Down)...? I don't know what to expect.
Jim Carrey looks great in the movie. I wonder if he'll be the "Big Daddy" of the sequel, meaning a funny character who kicks a lot of ass, and with a dark / bleak backstory. He doesn't seem to overact (too much), which is a plus in my book. But there's little footage of him around, so it's kind of hard to say right now how he'll be in the movie. But so far, my impressions are positive.

I see that you didn't really like Thor much. I thought it was pretty cool and I had a lot of fun with it. I also see that you really seem to like Prometheus. I had a difficult time getting through it myself. I just finished it last night. The 3-D was great but most of the characters were pretty boring for me. Michael Fassbender carried the film and the attention to detail was the best thing for me!

Btw, did you see Prometheus in 3D at cinemas?

Yeah, the visuals are stunning and Scott's detail is strong. I found the film slow as you could tell..I don't know why, but there was something about Thor I really liked. The action was awesome and Chris Hemsworth was fantastic. However, the love between Thor and (the girl) was awful! Natalie Portman wasn't good IMO in Thor. There wasn't any chemistry. Felt rather awkward!

I haven't seen Diabolique or Repulsion (But they're on my watchlist). However, I have seen Persona, and as you can probably see on my profile page, it's my #3 film of all time. It's been two years since I last watched it, though, so my thoughts on it aren't as concrete as they could be. Bibi Andersson gives an incredible performance as the doctor and film has a moody, somewhat haunting atmosphere about it. Bergman plays with the line between patient and caregiver and as the line between the two blurs, a commentary on the nature of identity is sparked and the film handles these themes in artistically and intellectually satisfying ways.

On your question regarding Repulsion, I can't say with any conviction, but from what little I've seen and heard of it, the tone and overall feeling of the film does seem to be in line with what Polanski was doing with Rosemary's Baby (Maybe not to such a "devilish" extent, but similar).

Companion films I'd say. Two films which depict a similar period in history and a similar topic sure, but both are completely different in terms of their presentation, format and goals. The Right Stuff is basically a sweeping historical epic; it chronicles America's involvement in the space race, from Gen. Chuck Yeager breaking the sound barrier in 1947 all the way up to the culmination of the Mercury Seven program in 1963. Conversely, Apollo 13 is primarily a disaster/drama film, focusing almost exclusively on the seven day period during the Apol lo 13 mission (with the exception of the months of training leading up to the mission, but they only take up about 25-30 mins max of a 2hr 20min film).

The Right Stuff takes a look at the big picture from multiple perspectives; the test pilots, the astronauts in training (and to a much lesser extent, their families), the politicians, the media, the scientists and engineers etc, and a number of areas in which one or several of these parties run into conflict. While there is some focus on character, it never dwells on any one party for a significant amount of time (though you could argue that I'm splitting the film too finely). That said, when it does focus, it gives the respective stories a lot of grace.

In comparison, Apollo 13 focuses on the small picture, splitting its time between the astronauts, their families and mission control, but only giving a mere hint at the repercussions outside this sphere through inferred dialogue. One could argue that the experience is more engaging than that of The Right Stuff, which at times seems a bit more detatched, whereas Apollo 13's greatest strength, arguably, is that it manages to stay tense and thrilling even though the vast majority of people know how the story ends without even watching it.

Now that I think of it, this description is actually reminiscent of the comparison between The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, but I personally wouldn't think of those as two sides of the same coin, more companion films. That is to say that they herald from a similar period of history and subject matter, but focus on different elements of it; the military involvement Iraq War and the intelligence involvement of the War on Terror. I would also argue that The Hurt Locker is more character driven than ZDT, which is more event driven. So it's an apt comparison, but I think you and I have a different interpretation of companion films vs. different sides of the coin. Sorry if I've missed a trick here.

Sorry for being so long-winded, but I love both films and could talk about them for hours! I'd definitely recommend both of course, but if you are planning on watching them together (which makes sense in a way seeing as they are often linked together), make sure you have about 5-6 hours spare!

Thanks for asking, good question :)

I'm surprised that you seem to really love Star Wars Ep II and Ep II. I was just wondering, could you simply explain why you love them? I've seen them each a few times and for me, got worse and worse. I personally view the prequels as the humiliation to the original trilogy, but glad to still see you like it...More surprised!

Fear and Loathing is one of the most polarizing films of all time. Chances are high that you'll either give it a 1 or a 10 on a scale of 10. No surprises that it's at exactly 50% on RT. I like it 'cause it's visually impressive/unique (if you're into such a style), and I enjoy the cynicism it brings to the story whilst deconstructing the unattainable "American Dream". Depp as Raoul Duke is one of my favorite performances of all time. Damn good film (imo), but sure as hell not everyone's cup of tea.

Zodiac had always been a part of my top 25. Its rise on my chart was actually quite gradual. Your adding TSN to the top 20 seemed quite sudden to me, so I was only curious to know why. I don't like the film too much -- mainly because of my hatred for Aaron Sorkin and his high-school-comebacks brand of writing.

I was just wondering what it was for you that threw you off in the film, I myself loved both! I can of course understand if it is just because you don't neccesarily prefer that era of cinema

Yeah, I recently brought a 50" TV and so viewing classics on a big screen definitely helped my experience. As you see, I loved both!!! Yeah, Raiders is now in my top 10! Been a while actually. It's definitely a classic but by no means do I think that it should be at #4...As you probably noticed, Star Wars has significantly jumped up on my list from 30 to 5!!! I hope Jedi jumps on my chart as well, last time I saw it, I really wasn't as pleased.

Can't wait to see my Empire on TV!!!! I also see that Iron Man 3 mostly left you disappointed. Plan on seeing it soon..I heard there was a plot twist in the middle of the film, not a good one apparently. What did you really think of the film?

Also, one last question. Sorry! If you have one, and it is possible, or a few, what is your favorite movie soundtrack of all time? A few would be nice, I myself say Back to the Future, Superman, Star Wars, Indy and LOTR :D

I absolutely cannot argue with any of the opinions you stated on my page. The whole Princess/Wallace angle was uneeded (and untrue according to history). Wallace was definitely the only really developed character. I would say they did a good job of portraying Longshanks as a an awful dude though.
Must say though...I'm a fan of epics...and something about Braveheart sucked me in on my first viewing and didn't let go. Glad you enjoyed it as a whole though....

At first I was a little disappointed that Fellowship moved from #1 to #2 but I just re-watched Empire as part of a Star Wars run and I love it even more. I guess I find it difficult to put on top of the Godfather and LOTR still but it is one of the three films (FOTR and Godfather being the other two) where every single aspect of the film was legendary!!!!

I just thought you were interested in watching the movie if you were asking about the profile pic. It's polarizing because it's weird, Rob. But I don't mind weird in comedies. Comedies are the hardest to recommend because you don't know someone's sense of humour. What I can do is tell you to watch Nicolas Cage loses his shit on YouTube. If you laugh at that, you should find the movie funny. The whole movie is on YouTube if you're interested. :)

I know, right? The orgy scenes were just too disturbing and uncomfortable for me to get a hard-on :( But, yeah, they were shot by Kubrick with such finesse. I feel the film isn't so much about marriage and fidelity (although those are there, too) as it is about the sinister and wicked forces dwelling right in front of our eyes, to whose existence we're completely oblivious -- hence the name Eyes Wide Shut. The scene with those Japanese guys was weird in a sick way. The owner just settles the matter instead of taking those assholes to a court of law. Ugh...

Kubrick died before he could edit EWS to his liking. I guess that's why the pacing is a bit uneven and it isn't relentlessly hardy like, say, The Shining. Stanley really enjoyed the editing process :)

I feel the Illuminati theories are a load of bull. What's your opinion on all of that? Cruise is still a Scientology nut-bag (great actor nonetheless).

I also rewatched The Prestige and it's made a SERIOUS jump on my chart. Impressed the bejesus outta me, all over again.

I'm also glad you saw Gattaca, something which I remember starting in Science last year and never finishing! I do need to check out that film. I see, you're not a Zack Synder fan so you probably aren't that excited for Man of Steel, which has been a critical disappointment thus far. Do you plan to watch 300 and Watchmen any time soon?

Yeah, Commando was awesome! I honestly don't think Predator comes close to Arnold's best, it has and possibly will always be Terminator 2!

Btw, I recommend you watch The Treasure of Sierra Madre. I was given the recommendation to watch it and it is indeed, one of Humphrey Bogart's best performances and one of the greatest Westerns made.

Hey Rob! I love Flickchart but I'm just getting the hang of how the social elements work... I saw on my page that you had asked my opinion on Magnolia, and as you may have noticed it's in my Top 20 so I do like it a bit :)

Currently it's my favorite film by Paul Thomas Anderson, though I believe that each of his films since then have represented successive leaps in ambition and skill.

The reason I love Magnolia the most out of his work is that it's very much the work of a talented young film director told to make the movie of his dreams. The sheer enthusiasm and heart of the filmmaker just leaps off the screen constantly from start to finish.

I could pick problems with it: The daddy issues are a little ham-fisted. For an ensemble film set in L.A. to not have any significant black or latino characters is a little weird. Some of the scenes drag on a little.

But in the end, it's nearly a religious experience to sit through. Like a good opera, just let it wash over you and don't think too hard until it's over.

I love your top 10 dude, except for your Star Wars choices, I don't really like them, and Reservoir Dogs. Tarantino Films tend to get repetitive for me on the second viewing. An exception would be Inglourious Basterds. Also if you haven't seen it, I would recommend Boyz 'n Hood, a great hood drama with an exceptionally great performance by Lawrence Fishburne. It is such a powerful film. Also I have a question: did you love Eyes Wide Shut on the first viewing?

Do you suggest I watch the documentary after and before watching the film? My biggest issue with the film the first time around were the characters. The only character I cared for in any way was Brando's character. Fishburne's character annoyed me as did Duvall's. I hope that this re-watch will help. Unfortunately, I do not have a blu ray player. I have downloaded a Blu ray format though, not sure how much it helps though.

It's a great film but I personally felt the dialogue in it wasn't as sharp as other Tarantino films but this could also be due to the fact that he adapted a book. What do you think of this idea by Tarantino to adapt a novel?

I'm in the middle of Django Unchained and its my fourth viewing and for me, it hasn't lost any of its touch. I'd place it second on his list, just behind Pulp Fiction as of now. Yeah, PF is a timeless classic and Cuckoos Nest is one I need to badly re-visit. 4th greatest performance of all time by Nicholson!? Does that mean its your favorite Nicholson performance or is there any Nicholson performances you prefer. As of now, The Shining gives my favorite Nicholson performance.

Kubrick is someone I need to re-visit. For me, I'd probably say Tarantino and Hitchcock but Nolan really isn't far off for me either.

Hey man, indeed LONG time no see! :)

Whilst you've been falling behind with films, I've had plenty of time to catch up on films. I've seen many this year so far. You moved Pulp Fiction into your top 10 and I moved One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest into my top 20! :) I plan to watch some of the movies that are high up on your list like Menace II Society and re-watch The Thing. I'll get around to The Night of the Living Dead and the other two films in that trilogy soon, I'm having a bit of a month of horror.

Have you been around to the site, letterboxd.com? It's a fantastic site for those who love movies and I highly suggest you check it out! A lot of Flickchart's people are now on there (shane24, Caesar, JC13, MysticSpoon, MasterofMovies) :) I'm on there as well!

Glad to see you like Frankenstein. I also enjoyed it though I thought, as well made as it was, that it sorta lacked some tension. I still enjoyed it nevertheless!

It seems that you were a bit disappointed with Gravity. I really wanna see that movie, my god the reviews its getting! :) Are you looking forward to The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug? I'm on board but nothing has wowed me yet. Not even the second trailer!

Well, yeah! If you make an account on Letterboxd, try and keep it the same as your Flickchart username. It helps users from here keep track of those who also have a Letterboxd account much more easily! Mu username is 'SLionsCricket' When you make an account, up the top there should be a search bar. If you search my username or Shane's or any one else's, it'll pop up! :)

To communicate, follow the person on Letterboxd and when they post a review or create a list you can comment to them!

How was Blood Simple? It's one of my favorite Coen Brothers films. Where would you rank it in the Coen's filmography? I see that you weren't too fond of Thor: The Dark World. I personally loved it, one of my favorites of the year so far. What were some of the positives for you? Also, may I ask who your favorite directors are and your favorite films from them?

Hey Rob, what did you find so good about The Fellowship of the Ring and The Empire Strikes Back because I didn't find them as amazing as other did (like you) Thanks :)

It's alright, I'm always late with replies myself. I will check out your review since you think so highly of it. Where would you rank it with the Coen Brothers other work? And for a profile picture, you either need to have a Twitter account or a profile picture for your e-mail address, and you can link it there in the profile settings.

Hey Rob, great top 10 list there buddy. I've gotta be honest with you though: Blair Witch is a complete eyesore amidst all those iconic and legendary films... don't you think???

Hey, man. My predictions are actually quite safe and boring. Jared and Matty in the male category, and Blanchett in the female category. 12 Years takes home Best Picture, American Hustle Best Screenplay, and Gravity Best Cinematography. I'm just interested i these select categories. We'll see how it goes!

I'd say Jonah Hill is greater in The Wolf of Wall Street. His performance just stands out more there than it does in Moneyball.

He's proven to be a really good actor. Him snagging an Oscar one day wouldn't surprise me at all.

So what are you most excited to see this fall season? I'm personally dying to see Gone Girl, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and Interstellar. Oh, man Interstellar looks so good!

I know you prefer GoodFellas to Pulp Fiction, but which of the two do you think is better? They're two of the best-regarded gangster flicks of the 90s imo.

How have I been? Better than ever my good friend! Thanks a ton for requiting my greetings.

I had the pleasure of watching The Counselor and AI recently and loved both a great deal. My low expectations apropos of these polarizing works worked in their favor. Even for someone with an affinity for the bleak and the nihilistic like me (just look at my top 10), they're two of the most depressing visions of humanity I've ever seen :( Excellent films all around, however.

Nice to hear from you this opening week of 2015 :)

Tough to say since he gives really good performances in both. He really owns the role of Bane and has such a great commanding presence. I also really the like his understated performance as Eames in Inception. I think his better performance might be Bane because he conveys so much with most of his face hidden though I still really like the subtleties of Eames. He's a really good actor and I also like him in Lawless, Warrior, and Locke.

What did you think of David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo?

I haven't seen the original either but I really like Fincher's version as well. I hope they make the two sequels someday but I don't know if that will happen.

What do you think of David Fincher as a filmmaker?

Nice. He really kind of is in a class of his own. I still have to see a couple of his movies but I love all the ones I've seen so far.

Any thoughts on Birdman?

I love Fonda and I think Once Upon a Time in the West is his best role. So to answer your question, he's pretty badass in it. :)
