God that was terrible, just immobile animation like they had in the 80s, the characters just blink...only difference is that this has gratuitous titties...made for fapping I guess?   Really how can you watch this trash?

 

​     What it was made for I'm guessing...

Overall top 10... chronologically!

 

  1. The Maltese Falcon (1941) - Fantastic early noir film, mystery with twists and turns.  HUMPHREY BOGART ROCKS.
  2. Casablanca (1942) - No action, I know, but the writing is absolutely FANTASTIC.  Anti-German resistance, great love story, a zillion very funny lines.  "I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling has been taking place here!"  "Your winnings, sir."  "Oh!  Thank you."
  3. Singing in the Rain (1952) - The best classic musical.  It's just hilarious.  
  4. Charade (1963) - Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.  Audrey's character is pursued by a misfit bunch of GIs trying to get their share of money her husband stole from them.  Cary Grant's character... is helping her?  Or helping them?  Or helping her?  It's hard to tell...
  5. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) - bar none, the best adventure film ever made.
  6. The Princess Bride (1987) - Infinitely quotable.  Fighting, fencing, escapes, pirates...
  7. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) - Another triumph of movie-making, integrating hand-drawn animation of BOTH Warner Brothers and Disney characters with live action.  Combine that with a classic Hollywood/hard boiled detective story and I'm hooked.  Bob Hoskins is just great as washed-up private eye Eddie Valiant.
  8. Hard Boiled (1992) - if you have never watched John Woo's old films WATCH THIS ONE.  Chow Yun Fat and Andy Lau star as cop and gangster in an amazing "heroic bloodshed" crime film.  The extended shootout in a hospital/criminal base is amazing!
  9. O Brother Where Art Thou (2000) - this is my favorite Coen Brothers film, blending adventure, music, and (!!) Homer's Odyssey together in the story of a three escaped convicts trying to retrieve a treasure before a valley is flooded, and the many adventures they have on the way.
  10. Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) - This is just a rock opera action movie.  The plot's just enough to fuel the action but what AMAZING action there is.  CG used just to help complete the illusion of a high speed car chase with people fighting on vehicles.  Absolutely magnificent on just every level of craft. 

 

It's so hard to fit favourite films even into a list of 10.  I mean, I don't even have a western in there, or a war movie.  For those genres I guess I would pick The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, and Kelly's Heroes.  Although I'm halfway through watching The Dirty Dozen right now and it's pretty great...

 

edit2: and how did I forget Pirates of the Caribbean?  I didn't like #2s-4 but the first one was fantastic.   Or Aliens?!?

Too many too count because I go through phases but the ones I have to see at least once a year sort of out of ritual, which I guess makes them my favorite in a way, would be This is England (as well as the three miniseries' that came after), Robocop, Legend of Drunken Master, Chinatown and John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness.

I really don't think it's possible to have just one...too many genres.

 

I agree.  Not just too many genres, but so many movies I love in any given genre.  Impossible to come up with a single favourite in each genre, never mind a single favourite overall.

Favorite Movie?  Documentary:  Loose Change  2nd Edition

 

   It makes YOU think TWICE about the REAL Account of 9/11!!!


 

Watch it once, and you will watch it again and again and again, cause; YOU will doubt your eyes and brain!

I haven't watched a movie in years, since I avoid Western entertainment very actively, but my favorite anime is Zetsuen no Tempest.

If anyone still believes the official narrative in regard to 9/11 they're either beyond hopeless or indoctrinated so deeply they're functionally an automaton.
