message 1: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany McFly (tiffmcfly) Well, I'm a massive movie fan and I noticed only one discussion under the "Movies" list, so I decided to pitch in.
Please, list your favorite films and give a description or anything, really!
I'm always reading these types of discussions cause I like to learn about new movies.

message 3: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany McFly (tiffmcfly) Ha, don't worry, I've been told I have strange tastes as well. Just it wasn't always put nicely lol

But I agree on The Outsiders & Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. When I read them on your list I just thought, "How did I forget those!?"


message 4: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany McFly (tiffmcfly) Oh gosh, me too! He's so zazzy & sarcastic! And I really liked the first face off because of the musical bit lol
How about you?

Yeah, the film is definitely just as good (in my opinion) as the book. Like, I think everyone who has read it first & then seen it can agree that there's little that can be complained about

message 11: by Anna (Bananas) (new)

Anna (Bananas) | 758 comments Kelly, I'll have to look into Last Man. Haven't seen a good adaptation of I Am Legend yet. The last one was a disapointment, mainly due to the CGI monsters IMO.

Hell yes, I couldn't agree more. I literally laughed when I saw the monsters. WHY did they animate them all? It looked silly.

I really like The Last Man - it's the closest to, and isn't over the top like all previous incarnations.


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

I'm addicted to movies....

Tangled
Kick-Ass (I'm so obsessed with it....)
Harry Potter
Fellowship of the Ring
Zombieland
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmiron
Date Night
The Amazing Spider-Man
The original Spider-Man series (however cheesy they are, I love 'em!)
All Disney movies
Toy Story trilogies
All Pixar films (excluding the Cars series)
White Fang

I'll probably add to it.... I watch more tv shows than movies, but when I like a movie, I get into a weird obsession. Like Kick-Ass. I currently own every single comic out for it to date (Kick-Ass, Kick-Ass 2, and the two Hit-Girl issues out), own the film, and I'm cosplaying as Hit-Girl in a month. I've seen the movie at least a gabbillion times.

So amazing...


message 14: by Lashya (new)

Lashya Wilson | 94 comments ALL OF MINE Are from the Bleach Manga/Anime Series.

Hell yes, I cou..."


Right! The movie was actually pretty cool until the monsters showed up. They could have done so much better with good old make up, Rick-Baker style. The one creepy part for me was when Will Smith first has one of the monsters strapped down and is studying it and it's breathing fast as a freight train.

But the short story was so much better, with the monsters talking to him through the door. They weren't mindless at al; they were smart. And the scene where they're running after him in the car gave me goosebumps. So much potential...

message 18: by Clea (last edited Sep 29, 2012 03:10PM) (new)

Clea (cleasaal) | 5 comments Okay, I'm going to add one chances are no-one's ever heard of (if you have, I'm really glad to meet you!). It is one a friend handed me over without a word and it blew me away:

Strings, by Anders Rønnow Klarlund.

On a more traditional front, I would have to go with anything by Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata.


message 19: by Deanna (new)

robin hood men in tights
any hayao miyazaki movie

Clea (cleasaal) | 5 comments Now that I've had a bit of time to think about it, here are some of my (less bizarre) favorites.

So, in addition to Strings, and anything by either Miyazaki and Takahata let me add:

The Life of Brian
The Meaning of Life
(how can you go wrong with Monty Python?)

Star Wars (the original ones, thank you oh-so-very much)

Victor, Victoria (especially the final scene)

The Fantastic Planet (another one that is on the obscure end of the spectrum, but I really like it)

Gertie, the Dinosaur (fascinating in its own right, plus it is pretty much the dawn of animation)

plus

Alien
Shrek
(these are familiar enough)

How was Moon? I mean obviously you liked it but I get the impression it's kind of slow. Was it hard to get into?

Oh, I really want to see that! It looks great.

Had you read the books for either of these two before seeing the movies? I had read the books first and I'd be interested in hearing what somebody who hasn't thinks.

message 37: by Nova (new)

Nova (desiderata11) My favorites from 2012:
Looper and The Amazing Spider Man

I thought Looper had a bad start but a truly excellent finish. It's a totally different sort of sci-fi.

Had read Hitchhiker's, haven't read V. Have it somewhere lol, haven't read it yet tho. Hitchhiker's the book is way better tho.


message 39: by Erin (new)

Erin | 44 comments Original Star Wars, The Fifth Element, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz (I'll watch anything if Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, or Nick Frost are involved), Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (I saw the movie first, then read the books. I'm actually happy about this, I don't think I would have liked the movie as much because the books are SO amazing.) Stargate, The Prestige (which I think is one of the only movies in existance that's better than the book)


message 40: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany McFly (tiffmcfly) I'm a big fan of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost as well!
Though I love all films that Pegg & Frost are in together, I prefer films that Pegg are in (without Frost) over ones with Frost (without Pegg).
With that being said, my favorite film with Simon Pegg is Burke and Hare. And if you have not seen it, it's hilarious! It's a a dark/black comedy!


message 41: by Lit Bug (new)

Lit Bug | 51 comments Fav SF movies - I, Robot
The Minority Report

Kelly (xitomatl) Lit Bug wrote: "...
12 Monkeys"


I think this is probably one of the greatest underrated SF films of all time. I'm a huge Gilliam fan so I love everything he does, but this damned movie has everything in it you could want.

Lit Bug | 51 comments Yes - and Brad Pitt was soooo amazing! Never knew he could act so well!

I have a theory that Brad Pitt is at his best when he plays a completely crazy person.
