What are some great movies?

:iconwriteart:
writeart Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
I just feel like asking because I am a big movie fan and I am just curious about why some people like the movies they do. Plus I am curious to watch new movies. So what are some of your favorite movies (any genre except porn or movies you online love because of how much it sucks)

The Fall is my current fav. I haven't re-watched a movie as much since I was little. :)

I've seen some of those movies, and I see one trend.

You must really hate Stanley Kubrick and Francis Ford Coppola

Fight Club
Pulp Fiction
Reservoir Dogs
The Big Lebowski
Blade Runner
Godfather
V for Vendetta

Random comment: I just watched the movie "Thank You for Smoking". It's not the greatest movie, and I didn't like the ending. But I thought it was awesome. Just saying. XD

I've seen all of them, except Thank you for Smoking, Blade Runner, and *gasp* The Godfather

Fight Club, Big Lebowksi, and Pulp Fiction are some of my favorite movies. Reservoir Dogs is great. And V for Vendetta was good.

Fight Club is my personal favorite movie of all time. Pulp Fiction comes close. I think I really liked V for Vendetta just because of Hugo Weaving.

You should see The Godfather. Beautiful movie.

Watch American Beauty (I would say Fight Club was my favorite movie, then I saw this movie last night). It is very similar to Fight Club (heck I would go so far as to say Edward Norton's character and Kevin Spacey's character parallel each other).

And I know I need to watch the Godfather. To be honest I actually saw the first half. I didn't stop watching because it was a crappy movie, it was just at night and I got tired (of course I'm only referring to the first one)

I'll watch American Beauty as soon as I can.

Don't watch the Godfather during the night. XD
Also, only watch until the Godfather II. The third wasn't as good as its predecessors.

Are you a Kubrick, Gilliam, Fellini fan?

Oh and the 'Mother' I'm referring is the 2009 South Korean one.

If you end up liking The Killing check out Asphalt Jungle and Rififi. They're both made in around the same time period and deal with a similar plot.

81/2 is definitely Fellini's go to film and the one you should see first. A good one to watch after that would be Nights of Cabiria. It's very similar to 81/2.

Blade Runner, and a Scanner Darkly from the Phillip K. Dick adaptation world

Brotherhood of the Wolf from the French with subtitles world

Agree with Watchmen, add Iron Man (the original) and Blade II for the cross and double cross element

American Splendor and American Beauty for an inappropriate double bill that lets you feel a lot cooler than people who haven't seen them.

That should keep you busy for the rest of the week.

Thanks Cowboy, as I said saw Watchmen (the movie) and loved the comic. And is American Beauty any good? (heard it was amazing, but I've experienced disappoint with amazing movies before *cough* The Graduate *cough*)

Also I actually probably would check some of these movies out (I don't have much else to say, sorry)

American Beauty is fantastic. Check out Rotten Tomatoes for a more comprehensive take on it, but I don't think there's anything better.

They definitely are, I got emotional ever since the narrator discussed how he was. And the film is just beautiful with just the cinematography, directing, and no character is good or bad and I feel like every character is human (in the sense they are all 3 dimensional and unique).

The big lebowski: The funniest movie EVAR!!!
Waltz with Bashir: very melancholic and somehow incredible beautiful
Watchmen: Based on the (at my opinion) best comic of all times
Princess Mononoke: the best Anime-movie I've ever saw

Holy shit, The Big Lebowski is my favorite comedy of all time as well(and I love it outside its humor, like for it being ingeniously written/directed and acted, especially John Goodman as Walter, and the story is also awesome and noir-ish)

and I saw Watchmen (the movie) a while back, I enjoyed and thought it was okay. But THEN a couple of months ago I read AND LOVED the graphic novel and now I got it for Christmas.

as for the others, I haven't seen them. But my favorite anime movie is (the stereotypical choice) Akira.

I love Fight Club (it would probably be in my Top 5 favorite films of all time), and Inception's pretty good (Following is my personal favorite Nolan film, but I haven't seen Memento).

And I never saw Primal Fear, but it looks promising.
