    Yay random lists about movies. I'm good at this one. In no order whatsoever:

    Living dead series
    Evil dead 2
    Godfather Trilogy
    A Boy and his Dog -Morbid but very plausible...minus the talking dog.
    Star Wars Original Trilogy
    LOTR Trilogy
    Mad max 1 and 2-Fallout fans understand this.No explanation needed.
    Pandorum
    Event Horizon
    Phantasm 1 and 2-The Tall Man rocks!
    John Carpenters the Thing-Scary as hell when I was a kid. SFX masterpiece.
    Burial Ground-Classic English zombie flick in a Mansion.
    The Stand
    Book of Eli
    Full Metal Jacket
    Jarhead-Pretty good mental look at a soldier deployed.
    Idiocracy-I see this happening. This movie made me laugh the entire time almost.
    Pineapple Express-Perfect stoner movie IMO. It even tops Half Baked in my book.
    Demon Knight
    Iron Man 1 and 2



    The list goes on. I can never pick a favorite.

    Most of my favorites have been mentioned by others except for my number one spot.

    Memento

    Fuck I thought that was one of the best movies ever. Original story and I loved how the movie was shown out of order Pulp Fiction style. It made soo many scenes that much better and gave you a great feeling when details became clear and you went "Ahhhhhh!"

    No one else liked this film?!?

    You know what are really enjoyable movies? The Jason Bourne flicks. I just watched the whole trilogy and it's really good, it's way better than any James Bond crap I've ever seen. The story is more focussed on the character than is usual for this genre. Really good stuff. Check it out if you haven't done so yet.

    I wouldn't go into a David Lynch film looking to be swept along by a story. Haven't seen Eraserhead in a loooong time, but it did drag.

    Watched Blue Velvet the other day, that's a great Lynch one. His movies have this way of starting out fairly normal, and slowly, gradually slipping more and more into complete surreality, and they usually all have a mind blowing "holy-shit moment" that just makes smoke shoot out of your ears.

    Which leads me to Alejandro Jodorowsky.
    Anybody ever watch his films? I'm not going to say I enjoy them in the traditional movie going sense, but his movies really evoke a panoply of humanity - spiritual, funny, introspective, gory, profane, disgusting, sensual - it's got it all. I'm not going to pretend half of it makes sense, or that I get all the religious imagery, or that it's not really self-indulgent LSD fueled wankery. But I've never seen movies before I couldn't get out of my head like El Topo and The Holy Mountain. There's some really powerful imagery in those films.
    Not for the squeamish or pious or probably anyone not under the influence of hallucinogens.

    Saw The Book of Eli recently, left me feeling a bit indifferent, really. Tries to hit the right notes for a post-apocalyptic movie but stays just too predictable, or didn't make me interested. Which is sad because I wanted to like it, Denzel is a good actor usually and he did what he could with the role. Gary Oldman wasn't bad either.

    The Road was better, although even that didn't reach any great level in the end.

    I did like The Pacific, the miniseries on HBO about WW 2 in the Pacific. Had some good episodes.

    Woaah, The Pacific, i totally forgot about it. I only saw the pilot and liked it a lot. I've also seen Band of Brothers, so this would be a natural continuation.

    Has a few nice easter eggs, like the "A Boy And His Dog" poster in the room in which he's forced to sleep.

    I want that poster...

    That movie would be close to the top of my Most Overrated list. It's a gimmick movie with a stupid ending. Every movie Chris Nolan has ever done is overrated, but Memento is the most overrated of the lot.

    I watched Blue Velvet a couple of years ago, and I had exactly the same reaction. Even the "normal" parts are subtly strange, but those intense scenes sneak up on you and punch you in the gut. He does it with any powerful emotion - love, hate, fear...

    My DVD has Siskel and Ebert's original TV review in the extras, and Ebert was morally appalled by how horrible that scene with Hopper, Isabella Rossellini, and the the oxygen mask was...he thought it was one of the most degrading roles any woman had ever had to play in a movie. 8-)
