I'll give it to
Predator 1/2(I liked them anyway)
Equilibrium was cool, if only for the gun katas :D
Maybe its just because I saw it last night but "Secret Window" was a very good movie, and not at all a waste of time/money/energy.

July 4th, 2004, 02:39 PM
These are my favourites...
July 4th, 2004, 04:55 PM
My list.....by genre:
Action/Drama/War: Saving Private Ryan
Fantasy/Adventure/Action: LoTR Trilogy
Comedy/Family/Animation: Lilo & Stitch
Action/Comedy/Crime: Starsky & Hutch
Documentary: Step Into Liquid
Action/Fantasy/Sci-Fi: Spiderman 2
Action/Comedy/Horror/Romance: Shaun of the Dead
Drama/Thriller/Mystery: Fight Club
Drama/Romance/Sci-Fi/Thriller: Vanilla Sky
Adventure/Drama/War: Bridge on the River Kwai
Not that this is the perfect list....I just used the categories and the imdb top rated movies by genre thing to help filter them down. I probably wouldn't use the same categories if I were just to do it from the top of my head....this is just an effective way to filter out my list of kagillions of favourite movies.

Young Frankenstien.... it's fronkenshteen

Best "guy movies" I can think off the top of my head. Felt like sticking to a theme.
The good, the bad, and the ugly
Full Metal Jacket
Lock, stock, and 2 smoking barrels
Saving Pvt. Ryan
etc. etc... I could go on for a long time. I even have all those, yay.
July 5th, 2004, 08:51 AM
yeah, it's gotta be Bladerunner by a mile. I can't see that movie ever being bettered.
July 5th, 2004, 03:36 PM
Some of my all-time favorites:
-Apocalypse Now (Redux too)
-The Godfather I and II
-Taxi Driver (I love Scorsese if you didn't realize it)
-The Deer Hunter
if I had to chose some recent ones:
-Requiem for a dream
July 5th, 2004, 04:01 PM
Die Hard (Action)
Princess Mononoke (Anime ((Adventure/Action))
Grave of the Fireflies (Anime ((Drama/War))
Oceans 11 (Hmm...Thriller)
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (Martial Arts)
Lord of The Rings (Sci-Fi/Adventure)
Original Star Wars Trilogy (Sci-Fi)
July 7th, 2004, 01:52 PM
Momento is my current favorite movie.
July 7th, 2004, 02:14 PM
I mostly agree with Sinix' list, but don't forget:
North by Northwest
Absolutely one of the best movies ever made.
I hope that Silently Roaring was talking about the Frank Sinatra Danny Ocean, and not the George Clooney one.
Also, nobody mentioned Enter the Dragon. Given the popularity of kung-fu here, this one is a must-see.
Last addition: for those really into special effects, Jacob's Ladder and What Dreams May Come.
July 7th, 2004, 02:21 PM
Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Last Starfighter, The Goonies, Seven, Fight Club, The Game (EXCELLENT MOVIE!!) LOTR, Matrix, Friday, Next Friday, Friday After Next, Sleepy Hollow, Pirates of the Carribbean oh the list can go oonnn and oonnn. I have a wish list of dvd purchases that would prolly go over 1700.00 lol
July 7th, 2004, 02:29 PM
anything written by Charlie Kaufman
July 8th, 2004, 07:50 AM
Lets not forget Aliens and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Two flawless movies, often imitated, never bettered.
July 18th, 2004, 05:41 AM
Taxi 2 is pretty sweet.
Donnie Darko, Saving P ryan, Matrix 1, LOTR, and loads of other less recent films...
I like Gross Pointe Blank, it makes me want to be a hitman.
