The Official "Favorite Films of All Time" Thread

Postby alienmem » May Tue 09, 2017 11:12 am

Ok. You're probably thinking: "Here comes another one of them dumb listing your favorites thread...that exist everywhere.


Well let's make this kind of different and with different rules.

There is absolutely no obligation here to convey the best films. these are YOUR favorite films. they can be considered bad, good in between....they are your films.The films that if all movies were destroyed and you had to pick some you'd choose these.


The rules are there are no rules...kinda like Fight Club. But as in Fight Club there has to be some rules:


Rule #1-   Whatever film you like is eligible(short film, experimental, as long as it is in IMDb it's fine)


Rule #2-   Let's just out of non-repetition list only 20 movies(if you prefer 30,40 it's OK). I just wanted to limit the official list to 20 and then everyone in the same post can list honorable mentions ad nausuem(you can list a thousand if you want( but don't!! lol).


Rule #3- this is a difficult rule but I think it's necessary. In the official 20 films(or more if you want) only one film per director. Why? Because for instance I'd list every single Tarantino film and what fun is that? I'd put my favorite Tarantino in the official 20 and then all others in the Honorable


Last Rule or comment: REMEMBER. These lists are not definitive. You can come back a weak later ,edit them. You didn't remember what's his name. Doesn't matter. it's just fun!



I don't insist on being the one having the first post of favorites but I'm going through them right now.


Just format your post normally:



1-
.
.
.
20-

Honorable Mentions, X, Y, Z, ...


Let the fun begin. Your favorite films of all time!!! all time!!!

Ok, here goes mine. Remember: these are your favorites. It's a personal list.

I encourage everyone to at least name a few indispensible movies they couldn't live without while you refine your list. Doesn't need to be definitive. I loved heavy metal and now not so much. I hear one song and my head bursts.

Ok, while not definitive(almost nothing is) here we go:

These numbers don't need to represent an order of preference. You can display them alphabetically or at random or however you choose to

1-Pulp Fiction  (This is in fact my favorite film)
2- Iron Monkey
3- Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
4- A Clockwork Orange
5- Touch of Evil
6- The Holy Mountain
7- Irreversible
8- City of God
9- Dark City
10- Requiem for a Dream
11- Boogie Nights
12- Mulholland Drive
13- Tree of Life
14- The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
15- Blow Out
16- Zodiac
17- Branded to Kill
18- Memories of Murder
19- Band of Outsiders (aka A Band Apart)
20- Singapore Sling
21- Last Year at Marienbad
22- La Dolce Vita
23- Grave of the Fireflies
24- Princess Mononoke
25- The Empire Strikes Back
26- The Big Lebowski
27- Blade Runner
28- Akira
29- Heroic Purgatory
30- The Man Who Left His Will On Film
31- Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
32- Synecdoche, New York
33- Apocalypse Now
34- Jerry Maguire
35- Last Tango in Paris
36- The Godfather
37- Ichi the Killer
38- Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance
39- La Belle Captive
40- Chicago
41- Pan's Labyrinth
42- On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate
43- Pastoral
44- Dead Alive (aka Braindead)
45- A Serbian Film
46- The Isle

Oh my Alien, it's obvious that we DO NOT have the same taste in movies, lol - Most of these I have not even heard of. I will work on my list and post them later. One thing is for sure, my top one will be "The Day After Tomorrow (2004)". To be continued...

I had to look that film up 'cause I didn't know what you were talking about.

Are you serious? I mean, It's totally fine if you are but I din't know if you're joking or if maybe that film has some hidden or particular significance to you.  :)

I loved Turner & Hooch also. I actually love any movies with dogs or horses, no matter how corny they are, lol

My list of movies is not as huge as my list of TV Series, but I will pretty much watch anything that Marvel comes out with, and most definitely anything with Star Trek, anything, without exception!

You can post your favorite tv series Chou. Doesn't really matter.


I see that Bankska is a big fantasy /adventure enthusiast. Good for you. No The Goonies or Neverending Story or films from Terry Gilliam?

@Ctaulbee. Yeah Who doesn't like Finding Nemo right? It's great. I haven't seen Finding Nemo 2 but Finding Nemo, Walle and Up are just the perfect pixar films.

I love it.
