Good Choices  smile . It's not a bad thing you forgot Jersey Girl.
They would be in order if you shifted Clerks with Chasing Amy.


@kit-kate- I hope you are just joking about Scary Movie 3 & 4. The first one is honestly the only one worth sitting down for.

Well what do you expect? This thread is full of people who haven't seen most of the highly regarded films themselves (or consider movies like Titanic to be great, as evidenced more than once) and they can only list what they know. The most interesting movie mentioned so far (Salo) went over almost everyone's heads here I'm sure (while everyone is busy agreeing that Quentin Tarantino and Kevin Smith are the shit).

Why can't someone like high art and kung fu as well?

EDIT: Having looked over my previous statement, it is a bit snobby sounding, but I mean it. What I don't mean is that such movies go over their heads because they aren't intelligent, simply because they haven't ever heard of them. I guess this thread just got to me a little because if you are going to make a list of films everyone should see, you should at least try to make an effort to have seen more than the works of more than a few popular independent American directors or "classics" like Titanic.

I agree, actively seeking good films is fun.

Even crap ones which you might like anyway.
For example, I saw a Top Secret! DVD in Virgin today, starring Val Kilmer and made by the same guys who made Airplane, (it caught my eye because it had cows in wellies on the cover)
I never heard of it before, I didn't buy it, but I'm gonna download it and see if I do!

I think you are looking for the "Reasons to commit suicide" thread. God, what an awful movie. The worst part is, since M Night Shamalon(whatever) is from the Philadelphia area, he places all his movies in the suburbs. And Signs is placed where I live, and it makes us all look like a bunch 'o hicks, i reckon.

Not so much an essential, but if you dig beautiful animation and artistic style then you must watch Corpse Bride. The transfer onto DVD is crystal clear too...

Hey, I forgot about that one, Otis. I liked it too, although the musical within it was kinda babyish. Still very dark and yet elegant at the sam time.

What's babyish about it? Victor has to get married he flips out cause he's never met the woman before, runs away accidentally puts a ring on a corpse, in turns 'marries' her instead, than a string of weird yet humourous happenings occur. It's Tim fucking Burton, he's fucking awesome.

It was my favourite movie of last year and I prefer it to Nightmare Before Christmas. I wouldn't say it was babyish in any part either, yeah it's just Tim Burton. If anything I'd say Nightmare Before Christmas would appeal more to younger people with it's themes of Halloween and Christmas, although again that isn't babyish...

Is that the Kubrick Lolita? Funniest movie about child molestation I ever did see. No, seriously.

Oh, see Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. And, er, Fantastic Planet, maybe.

Brick. The cinematography is amazing. Although, it's one of those movies you have to watch a second time, just to catch some things you may have missed.

Blackadder11: It's proberly best if you just shut up with the evangelical "ART!" pose. I don't particulary like any of these films that people have mentioned and I think they're idiots for choosing such fucking pathetic films (I'm sorry, but Kevin Smith is terrible no matter how many times you try to defend him whilst holding thousands of dollars worth of pop-culture merchandise in your arms). But, I tend to keep to a quiet front about it because it's farce to try to change anyone's opinion about anything. If you had a gun.. maybe.

Just answer me this, Mr. Blackadder, are you a Dogme95 manifesto tragic or do you view Matthew Barney as the new Jesus...?

I've never been much of an avant garde fan. I think all truly great movies work on a literal level, with metaphors and ideas woven into the film as opposed to being the film.

I meant the music within it, not the movie, the movie plot and jazz was excellant. It's just one of the musicals-what was it, the one with the Bones guy? Yah, that one kinda had me thinking it was childish. Doesn't mean it didn't rock, though.
