General Discussion / Re: Must-see movies list

If you guys want probably the best "list" of top movies, its the Sight and Sound polls that they do every 10 years (the interview a large number of critics and a large number of directors, whose individual top 10 lists are compiled).  I have seen quite a few of these lists, but by and large Sight and Sound's polls are considered far and away the best.

Here are the most current versions:

One of the nice things is you can see who voted for each film, and which films those people voted for.  Some of the people annotated their list to say why they picked each film.

There is also a smaller poll of only UK critics regarding the best films of the last 25 years (done in 2002).  Its a little more suspect (I doubt Yi Yi or Distant Voices, Still Lives will be on the list in ten years), but cool nonetheless:

How about "hace dos anos" instead?

And eh, I'll live if they call me a gringo. It's the truth.

You, sir, would be called a gabacho.  Gringo's call gabachos gringos.

Wasn't Atreyu the dude from Neverending Story?  I was scared to death of that movie as a kid - I took the title literally, and assumed if I started watching it, I would have to watch it forever - I must have been like 11 or 12 by the time I got around to it.

For the life of me I wouldn't know the dog/dragon's name.

As for bands, too many to list, but here are some of my favorite bands/musicians I had the pleasure of seeing live (this is far from all inclusive, but I figured it was easier to list bands that are my favorite that I have seen live rather than list all bands that have ever been up in "favorite zone"):

- Pavement
- Jane's Addiction
- George Clinton and Parliment
- B.B. King and Eric Clapton
- Sonic Youth
- Sublime
- Rage Against the Machine
- Soundgarden
- Bob Dylan
- Pearl Jam
- Rancid
- Rush
- Paige and Plant
- Red Hot Chili Peppers
- Smashing Pumpkins
- The Breeders
- The Pixies
- Yo la Tengo
- Built to Spill

probably more, but I was starting to list bands that weren't really favorites, so I will stop here.
