(Newbie alert!): Although I'm quite sure that nobody will care anyway, I just can't fight the urge to say somehing about it. I usually never leave comments, but looking at this strange "your list of shame" almost made me cry, because (at least those first 11 movies on top of the list, I don't even dare to look at the rest of it) are amongst my favourite ones (or at worst "seen"). :(
I guess I didn't actually pay attention to how this system works, so I'll just have to make it right in some reasonable amount of time. :)
My apologies to anyone offended or teriffied by my best "unseen" movie list...or this comment, for that matter. :)

Well, since there's apparently (please correct me if I'm wrong) and unfortunately no way of simply erasing your previous comment, I'll just have to update it. :Ð
I'm pretty sure that my lists are now a bit more trustworthy, I've managed to squeeze in (to a certain degree) some personal "representatives" of my favourite directors/genres or plainly the most mind-blowing films I've seen so far, etc. in the top 20. ^^
But the choice was really tough and I found myself constantly trying to balance between some kind of an attempt of an "objective" criteria and my own impressions of most of the movies ranked there...seems like I'm only human after all. :D
Anyhow, as of now, I'll retreat to my inner conversations B-)

Oops...my "Wall of Shame" only gets bigger and bigger every time I come around here...:sigh: I wasn't attempting to start any discussions, on the contrary, I was trying to avoid that by harmlessly commenting on Matchups, had no idea that it sticks like glue on one's profile...argh, once a noob, always a noob...probably best if I just don't touch any buttons on this site ever again...xD
Yeah, I'm aware of the awkward fact about spamming my own page, so I'll just humbly suggest that you, oh great and mighty movie buff, send me that friend invitation already, won't bite, I promise! ^^
And no, I'm not a native English speaker, as you surely must have noticed from the start, so please try to pardon my abuse of English grammar...:)

You're welcome! You've got a good taste in movies. Donnie Darko is such a sweet film. Cool to see it so high on your list.

Yeah, the films high on my list have a lot of sentimental value to me. Some people on this site like to rank by what they consider are the "greatest films of all time" but I rank by which films mean the most to me or that I enjoy the most. Lassie and Field of Dreams are two films that I have loved since I was a kid so those two especially hold a lot of sentimental value for me.

My favorite films change from time to time. I never make a complete overhaul of my favorites but different films move up and down on my list from time to time. Like the first time I saw Interstellar it was in the 50s range for me but after seeing it a few more times now it's in my top 10.

What are some of the films from my list that you are wanting to see?

No worries at all. Nothing like a good healthy movie discussion. I agree sometimes which film I pick depends entirely what kind of mood I'm in. My flickchart will never be definitive no matter how much I want it to be haha.

That's interesting that you don't re-watch movies as much. I'm someone that re-watches films all the time. I love sitting down knowing exactly what I'm going to get and now that I won't be disappointed. A lot of times I'll like a film even more the second time I watch it.

A Beautiful Mind is the definitive biopic for me as well. I absolutely love film. I remember the first time I watched it in my high school psychology class and I was just blown away by it. My mom has always liked that film as well and she owns the soundtrack so I remember listening to that amazing score a lot growing up. It's haunting and beautiful at the same time. The entire cast is just excellent in that film.

All those you films you're wanting to check out are excellent. There's not one of them I would not recommend. Hopefully you enjoy them!

How long has The Matrix been your favorite film? Do you think it will ever change?

I shouldn't say I wish my list was perfect but rather more accurate. My list is fairly accurate but not as accurate as I wish it would be. It would be a lot of work to correct it all though haha

That would have been awesome to see The Matrix in theaters for the first time. I didn't see it until a little over ten years after it was released on DVD haha. I love when films can have a big impact on your life like that. Films that make you think of new ideas and look and the world from entirely different perspectives :)

I see you recently added The Good, The Bad and The Ugly...any thoughts on the film? I really enjoy that one.

Glad you liked it! The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is a great one. The finale of the film is one of my favorite film endings of all time. So intense and epic! I like the score so much I used to have the theme for my ringtone on my phone for a while haha. I wish they would make big epic westerns like that again some day.

If you liked that film I would recommend the first two installments of that trilogy "A Fistful of Dollars" and "For a Few Dollars More". They are all pretty much standalone films but all feature Clint Eastwood as "The Man With No Name". They are on a little smaller scale than The Good, The Bad and The Ugly but are still really good. The man that made all those films also directed "Once Upon a Time in the West" which is worth checking out at some point as well. My favorite western is still the 2007 version of 3:10 to Yuma with Christian Bale and Russell Crowe :) For some reason I'm feeling like I missed a couple other good ones but I can't think of them for now haha

No need to apologize at all. I understand what you're saying just fine :) What country are you from if you don't mind me asking? I completely understand if you want to keep that private. I'm from the States.

Haha I have long list of films I want to see someday too. Not a bad problem to have I guess.

I actually haven't seen the original 3:10 to Yuma yet only the remake. I plan on seeing it someday though. I agree that Russell Crowe is a really good actor. I always enjoy watching his films.

Who you say are some of your favorite actors?
