It's really to difficult for me to answer this question.....Just insterested in your movie tastes. :)
Your 10 favorite movies of all time?(52 posts) (15 voices)

1. Pulp Fiction
2. The Dark Night
3. Shawshank Redemption
4. Boon Dock Saints
7. Harry Potter (all)
8. Step Brothers
9. Pursuit of Happyness (its spelled that way for a reason)
10. Reservoir Dogs
1.) Con Air
2.) Un Prophete
3.) Lord of the Rings Trilogy
4.) There Will Be Blood
5.) Tropic Thunder
9.) Let The Right One In
10.) Seven Samurai
Off the top of my head...
- Ip Man
Kung Fu Hustle
The Bank Job - (strictly for the use of the word 'skullduggery')
Ghost in the Shell
Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance
Appleseed Ex Machina
Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete
Scott Pilgram vs The World
Reno 911 Miami
Batman Gotham Knight
The Punisher (2004)
There in no particular order, but Evangelion 2.0 is my favorite on the list. I find many other movies great, but these are the ones I can repeatedly look at and never get tired of them.
In no particular order.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Transformers (1986) (All nostalgia)
That's off the top of my head. I'm really not much of a critic, I like different things for different reasons. I really don't like to pick absolute favorites.
You've got the touch. You've got the POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWEEEEERRRRRR!
@ Ofaliss - lol I should have expected that.
There's probably some I've missed but here are some of my favourites...
Harry Potter series
Lord of the Rings trilogy
The Shawshank Redemption
I Love You, Man
The Bourne trilogy
... just to give everyone a general idea
Star Wars: A New Hope
Sky High (the Japanese movie by Ryuhei Kitamura)
The Fifth Element
The Crawling Eye
No Days of Thunder Jeremy!? Come on, show the movie you were in some love man!
Did anybody see the live action Tekken movie. Critics say it's God awful, but people who just enjoy movies tend to think it was ok. I'm eyeballing the Bluray right now, thinking real hard on if I should get it or not.
Haven't seen it, Ofaliss, but you can rent it on the PS Store, as a trial for whether to plunk down for owning a hard copy.
No order here . . . and plenty more I could add:
Star Trek: The Motion Picture
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
Star Trek: First Contact
Tenchi Muyo! in Love
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love?
The Lord of the Rings trilogy
I'm also a big fan of Hong Kong martial arts movies (and I'd really love to see one last film with the "3 brothers," Sammo Hung, Jackie Chan, and Yuen Biao, back together), but I don't think I'd put any of them on a favorite movies list.
Kung Fu Panda series
Harry Potter Series
Toy Story series
The Dark Knight
How to train your Dragon
that's good, for now.
I need to add:
1. DIE HARD
2. INDIANA JONES and the last crusade
4. ROBOCOP 2
5. THE TERMINATOR
7. BATMAN returns
8. BEVERLY HILLS COP 2
I forgot to add Pee Wee's Big Adventure.
I finally got around to watching the ultimate cut of Watchmen last night. I've had that version for about 3 months and just found time to watch it.
But anyway. I forgot how badass of a movie it is! Definitely one of my top 10's now.
I've heard some say that Watchmen takes itself too seriously, but I want to punch those people in the face. I say we don't take the state of society serious enough and that the creator of Watchmen is trying to tell us this very thing. What will it take for us to see that, and how tragic will the event be? But I'm not going to preach on the current state of the world, I'll just make myself sound like an old fart!
But, I still can't get used to seeing Dr. Manhattan's junk flailing around from time to time.
No idea about live action but I can tell you my top 10 Western animated movies. This list isn't in any order.
01. A Goofy Movie (1995 Disney)
02. The Secret of NIMH ( 1982 Don Bluth Productions) The ending was horrible though but the rest of it is excellent
03. All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989 Sullivan Bluth Studios) Can you name another (western) animated movie with death, gambling, violence, smoking and a singing gator?
04. The Great Mouse Detective (1986 Disney)
05. Watership Down (1978 Nepenthe Productions)
06. The Fox And the Hound (1981 Disney)
07. The Plague Dogs (1982 Nepenthe Productions)
08. Sleeping Beauty (1959 Disney)
09. Toy Story (1995 Pixar)
10. How to Train Your Dragon (2010 Dreamworks)
As you can see, I prefer the older animated movies compared to the ones today with the exception of #10. That was good enough to enter my top 10 list.
I've never been too big on Western animated movies. Not sure why. I do love The Lion King though. Toy Story was pretty good too. Didn't much care for the 2nd and have yet to see the 3rd. Oh yeah, The Incredibles was pretty good.
Wow, you're the first person I met who doesn't like/care for NIMH but you said you're not really a big fan of them so I can understand. #5 and #7 are actually British movies and are pretty realistic and dark/depressing. You should see #10 though. I never liked anything but Dreamworks but this is very different from what they normally do. Props to sniper712 for loving it too.
P.S. This may sound stupid to most people but I am not a Pixar fan. I still think Toy Story (the first movie they ever made) is simply the best one of the lot. It's well crafted and there's something magical about it, for lack of a better term, that makes it good. Their recent movies are just too preachy for me and I dunno, they're fun to watch once, but that's all.
your #10 is on my list too :D . i loved it cause it's well done and includes something i wish was possible in real life: riding on dragons. i prefer Toy story 2 since there's some great team up moments that i absolutely love. meet the other person who doesn't care about NIMH, but that's cause i have no clue about it or ever heard of its name till now.
Whats NIMH stand for?
1. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (Favorite out of the series)
2. Kingdom of Heaven
3. Indiana Jones The Last Crusade (Favorite out of the series)
4. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of Ring (Favorite out of the trilogy)
5. Bourne Identity (Favorite out of the trilogy)
6. The Last Samurai
7. The Dark Knight
8. Pirates of the Caribbean (I don't know which one :p)
9. Enemy at the Gates
10. Mission Impossible I (Favorite out of the series)
They aren't in any particular order.
Bourne movies are good.
And Lion King is awesome!
@Balrog: National Institute of Mental Health. It's a real institute. I dinna know people who liked American animated movies never knew what NIMH is. It was all the rage back when it first came out. Maybe you're one of the new generation.
depends, when did it come out again? wait... 1982, yep i'm not born yet.
Like I said, I don't have a top 10 live action movie list but I can rattle off some movies that I do like a lot. That should give you something.
I enjoyed the following movies:
Indiana Jones + sequels (Temple of Doom is my fave)
Star Wars episodes IV V and VI
Air Force One
Back to the Future
Lord of the Rings (it's not a trilogy, just one extra long story broken into 3 sections)
The Japanese Godzilla movies (2002 Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla is my fave)
Dog Soldiers (It's a werewolf movie in case you don't know)
Heh, most movies you like (both animated and live action) are as old, if not older, than I am Freelance! I can respect that though. Most things today just don't hold up to the things of yesterday.
Haha yeah I'm one of those people who don't really like the stuff of today. Sure there are some exceptions (I just didn't mention them because they're not 'best movie' material) but overall I think the older movies are more memorable to me and are classics. I think the same way about TV shows.
I am surprised nobody ratted on me about my Pixar stance though. It seems every animation fan is also a Pixar fan and would jump on anyone who says they don't like Pixar. You know, I used to love Disney but now I couldn't care less. I loved their old(er) movies and thought the newer ones (with exception of Bolt) doesn't capture the same magic the older movies did. Same with the TV shows. Ugh, their old cartoons were classic! Now it's just crap.
P.S. Not movie related but today they're going to release the Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter update for NA today. Wahoo!
Well, I like Pixar's work, but I'm not going to attack someone just because they have different tastes. Look at Ofaliss; he didn't like Ah My Goddess, but I didn't shorten his long intestine because of it. It's oookay!
Back in the 90s, Disney's TV cartoons suddenly took a turn from the fantastical (like TaleSpin) to the mundane (like Goof Troop, I think it was called). Actually, this seemed like a general shift, beyond just Disney. Though there were still some great American animated series during the 90s, particularly from Warner Bros., the spirit of adventure that had been common through the 80s until then seemed to fade into memories.
Also, wire work became pretty widespread in Hong Kong martial arts action movies in the 90s, beyond just films set in mystical "everybody flies" settings. That made things a little less spectacular in a way.
