Movies that, as far as I'm concerned, kick ass. (Note the conspicous absence of really modern films. This is not because I pine for the grand old days of cinema or anything, it just usually takes several years before I know
that I love a film.
In no particular order:Aliens:
"Game over, man, game over!" Hudson made the film.The Empire Strikes back:
I love the rest of the OT, too, but this one... unbeatable.Heat:
The last scene... beautiful. Tears. No joke.Pulp Fiction:
Everything about it was utterly awesome.Amelie:
Yes, this is a recent film. The fact that I've put it here should tell you how much it rules. The only
film that made me want to be nicer to people afterwards. For about half an hour. (Which is half an hour longer then most).Stalingrad:
What do you do in a no-win situation? You die. Most depressing war film ever. Apocalypse Now:
Bizzare. Gut wrenching. Creepy. Fantastic.A Clockwork Orange:
Yes, I'm a pretencious mother fucker too, but it just doesn't get much better then smacking people around to classical music.Terminator 2: Judgement Day:
Fantastic Sci-Fi/Action movie. Only total feebs haven't seen it by now.Jurassic Park:
I loved dinosaurs as a kid, and this film was a dream come true for me. "Clever girl..."The Matrix:
I have to pull this out now and again to remind myself how much the first one rocked. After repeated viewings, it seems that it rocks a lot.The Usual Suspects:
What the...? Where'd the limp go? Also, Keizer Soze was a totally scary bad-ass... if he even existed. Monty Python and The Holy Grail:
So call me predictable. *Has a sudden heart attack.*Army of Darkness:
Any movie where the hero's breaking evil skeletons over his knee is okay by me.Star Trek: First Contact:
By far the best of the Trek movies I've seen. No, I haven't seen Wrath of Khan. Back to the Future trilogy:
I can't think of a real good reason why I love these movies, but I do regardless.Raiders of the Lost Ark:
Killin' Nazi's made fun! ...more fun!Orgazmo:
"One last shot... for Jesus!" The film that made me love Mormans.Chasing Amy:
good romantic comedy. And a great film, to boot!The Profesional:
What's this? An action film where I'm getting emotionally attached to the protgonists? What kind of bizzaro world is this?!?
Honourable Mentions: Alien, Star Wars, Return of the Jedi, Temple of Doom, Lady Ninja: Reflections of Darkness (What the...
), Ronin, The Last Crusade, Mystery Men, Life of Brian, The Meaning of Life,The Terminator, The Rock, and about a zillion others that haven't come to mind for some reason.
