I didnt know a scanner darkly was the name of a movie I just thought you were being cryptic again. But you were because who the heck has ever heard of that besides you and Tweek

I knew of the book. smile
Someone was just telling me they read it

I know it. Do you know Piranha Part Two: The Spawning?

I've seen the original Piranha on TV a couple times. It's AWESOMMME..  I know I've said this at least about three times before, but I do quite love old horror movies.   For some reason I just can get into them more, than I often can with 'serious' films.

I did at least 150 in a 24 hour period and was fine. You can do it with General Discussion easily. Hint: visit the "what if" thread and say "What if Fry was a girl lol"

Have you ever heard of For the Love of a Dog it has that guy from the Jeffersons in it

Dr. Zhivago
It's a Wonderful Life
Pulp Fiction
Psycho
The Shawshank Redemption
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Midnight Cowboy
Chinatown

I'm starting to thing 10 isn't enough...

Mmk, i'll plan to watch one a week till the end of the year-ish i'll write off this month and start in june, so June, 7 months x 4, 28 movies, Lets say 25, cause it's a nice number.

I'll have 10 super dooper MUST sees. 10 slightly less Must see, and then i think i'll reserve 5 places for less serious perhaps terrible movies (something on par with Doomsday?)

Here's my list so far.

The MUST SEE 10

Apocalypse now
Rear Window
Schindlers List
Life is Beautiful
taxi driver
citizen kane
Alien
One Flew over the cuckoo's nest
Casablanca
2001: A Space Odyssey



The MUST SEE (sorta) 10

Requiem for a dream
reservoir dogs
Blade Runner (I WILL watch this and pay attention this time...)
Dr Strange Love
Planet of the apes
Virgin Suicides
The Pianist
Journey to the Centre of the earth
the big lebowski
goodfellas


EDIT:
Other Films that i've not seen that didn't make either list

Goodfellas
Se7en
the Usual Suspects
Godfather (Any of them)
Léon
The Third Man


Some Potentials for the 5 MUSTN'T SEE

I have no idea yet...

Not sure whether i just want bad movies, or bad movies with a lot of hype. Maybe something so bad it has cult status.


Suggestions and comment plz!

Never heard of Life is Beautiful, Rear Window, Virgin Suicide, or The Third Man. You must see the Evil Dead trilogy, count it as one movie. Same with Alien but the assembly cut of the third.

1984 and Brazil are both musts, and I'd actually recommend Brazil more than 1984 as (1) the book is far better and (2) Brazil is just plain better. If you have to pick on, do Brazil. And, if you do watch 1984, make sure it's the one released in 1984.

Stop Making Sense, the concert film for Talking Heads, is the best concert film, if you want to watch one of those too. Put it in at Other. Worth the look though.

Se7en reminded me of Fight Club reminded me of Death to Smootchy. Has Ed Norton and Robin Williams. I really liked it, nice black comedy about children show entertainers. Which also reminds me that Reservoir Dogs is a must watch period.

Garden State! Watch it!

Seen Garden State. C'mon, it's Zach Braff, how could I NOT have seen it.

Also seen Death To Smootchy, it was good. How can you not have heard of Life is Beautiful! Or Rear Window (it's Hitchcock! EVERYTHING has parodied/Paid Homage to it...). Virgin Suicides is based on the book of the same name by Jeffrey Eugenides, and The Third Man, i've no clue what it's about, but i know OF it...

The Third Man is good. Harry Lime is the Hannibal Lecter of his day (that is to say, a villain that gets all of 10 minutes screen time and steals the show),

Why is The Wrestler in your 'Mustn't See' list? I haven't seen it yet, but by most accounts it's apparently really good.

If you really want to see a god-awful film that will make you want to hate cinema, yourself and life in general, go watch the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still. Possibly the worst movie I've ever seen.

I agree with the Brazil recommendation, it's a better Nineteen Eighty-Four film than the actual Nineteen Eighty-Four film (although it doesn't have a disturbingly hair-free John Hurt...)

In fact, go watch all of Terry Gilliam's films. Even the weird ones like Tideland (which is a stunningly beautiful example of his cinematic style, but with no cohesive story to speak of.)

Just saw Milk. It almost made me cry. Almost.

Or any of the "movie" movies. Those would make you destroy the original negatives of Citizen Kane.

Terry Gilliam is much better than he's given credit for. Tis why I'm looking forward to Doctor Parnassus.

You MUST watch at least one Woody film, or I'm kicking you out of the tree house.

...Have you seen Lost in Translation?

Ps: I love Death to Smoochy. I watched it a few times while I was post wisdom teeth surgery and all drugged up. It's a great film.

Matchpoint doesn't count- you were just watching it for Scar Jo. Or Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

You should watch Manhattan. Annie Hall is the "classic" classic, but I prefer Manhattan.

Manhattan is nothing in comparison to Annie Hall! Annie is much funnier and wittier than Manhattan. However, for a true comedy piece, Bananas is better.

Bananas is OK - I prefer Crimes and Misdemeanors for comedy.
