Acion- I love 1 and 3, though I'm not familiar with #2. Comedy- Holy Grail is awesome and I liked Spaceballs as a kid. Not sure about #3. Drama- With the exception of Forrest Gump (Which I find overrated), agreed. War- I forgot to do this section, but if you were to switch FMJ with SPR this would be my list. Western- 2 and 3 are amazing, and I'll need to check out #1. Animation- I agree with #1 and #2 was this close to being on my list. I actually have #3 on my bucket list of movies to watch xD Horror- Meh, I never liked Poltergeist, but I can agree with the top 2. Sci-fi- Although I am one of five people to not care for Star Wars nor Lord of the Rings, I can agree that 2001: A Space ODyssey is one of the greatest films ever.
3. Kill Bill or Seven Samurai (They'd both fit here) 2. Terminator 2 1. First Blood
3. Grave of the Fireflies (Without a doubt, the saddest movie ever.) 2. Spirited Away 1. AKIRA (Pretty much what made me love anime so much.)
3. Office Space 2. Super Bad 1. Clerks 1 and 2 (Both are great)
3. My Cousin Vinny 2. To Kill a Mockingbird 1. 12 Angry Men
4. Goodfellas (In case #1 doesn't fit here.) 3. Scarface (I LIKE the remake more, though the original would probably be considered better. I like both a lot though.) 2. Godfather Part 2 (An even better sequel.) 1. Shawshank Redemption (Best. Movie. Evar.)
3. Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Halloween (The original of both since they're so goddamn awesome and scary and the remakes SUCK!) 2. Psycho (Original- possibly the most important film of the 1960's) 1. The Thing (The 1980's remake by John Carpenter- it beats the original and prequel combined)
3. The Matrix 2. 2001: A Space Odyssey 1. Blade Runner (Also one of my top 5 films. I've watched every cut)
3. Caddyshack 2. Raging Bull 1. Rocky (Was my most beloved film as a kid; still is in the top 5 of all time for me. Also, any of the sequels besides Rocky 5 could go here)
3. Watchmen (Yes, I've read the comic, consider it a masterpiece and still liked this) 2. Avengers (Duh!) 1. Dark Knight (Duh!)
3. Gone Baby Gone 2. The Bourne trilogy (Each was just as good as the last... then the Bourny Legacy had to ruin it) 1. Pulp Fiction
3. Django Unchained (Sorry Desperado, you have been surpassed) 2. True Grit (The remake; it's beyond 132058424908530947507,000m times better) 1. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
3. Aladdin 2. Toy Story 3 1. Hunchback of Notre Dame (Even if it's not nearly as good as the book or the live-action film from the 1920's [Or was it the 1930's? It was black and white, but with sound], I find it to be INCREDIBLY underrated.)
Awesome... Love the Fast and Furious set.... can't wait for the next one! I think I have seen this, but I am not completely sure. I know I have seen a John Carpenter film about vampires and it was really good. I'll have to check it out. I am a huge tolkien fan, so you just blew me away. Good choices!
