Must-see movies list
« on: April 15, 2008, 12:11:25 pm »
From talking with Cae, it's apparent that there's a TON of movies that I need to see. So I started a google docs spreadsheet, available here. Feel free to post movies in this thread, and we'll add them to the list.

Hmm, I can't seem to edit it. Can you add [email protected]?

Right now, only Cae, morgul, and myself can edit it - just post here and we'll stick your suggestions in.

A ton of movies?  I only see two. :colbert:
Have you seen any of these?
Groundhog Day
Training Day
Rebecca
Rear Window
African Queen
The Graduate
Dirty Harry
The French Connection
I watched so much scrambled TV porn when I was young that by the time I got to see real porn I was quickly put off by the lack of subtlety and unabstract nature of it.

I haven't had a chance to add them to the list yet. 

And yeah, those you listed are GREAT.
Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought; all we ought to have said, and have not said; all we ought to have done, and have not done; I pray thee God for forgiveness.

-Pitch Black
-Chronicles of Riddick.


If you don't like the first, still watch the second. They're basically completely different movies.

-Serenity
-Patton
-Boondock Saints

Those are just off the top of my head.
What foes are we to meet in battle that we have not vanquished in the shadows of the human soul? What Daemons scream that have not cried to us from the dark places of the mind? What fear have we of death who know there is immortality in the great and noble deeds of men?

And if you like the second, but not the first, you deserve a half brick to the skull.

Also, Boondock Saints RULES.

They all rule.

Patton most of all though, but that's just because I have a fascination with the man.

Harry Potter 3 and Star Wars Episode 1, bitches.

The two movies that might rival my all time favorite: Legally Blond 2.

...though Sixteen Candles rocked too...

The popular videogame "Doom" is based loosely around the time Satan borrowed two bucks from Vin Diesel and forgot to pay him back.

As much as I don't get along with you sometimes... Just because you like Boondock Saints I might offer to bare your children.

But *cough* back to what I came here to say...

SLC Punk
Trainspotting
Cloverfield
Vampire Clan
Ginger Snaps
King of California

There's this one movie... I forgot what it's called but I'll look it up in a bit. Basically this guy has a disassociative mental disorder. He ends up dating this blow-up doll, and he has to cope with every day normal life with this "real-doll" girlfriend.

Ginger Snaps?

 :commissar:

Lost Boys, I could forgive, but Ginger Snaps?!

Also, Trainspotting is really cool.

Meh - I'm a fan of really cheesy gory movies =)

Trainspotting is one of my all time favorites.

Yeah, well . . . you don't have to be all  :math: in order to enjoy that one.  It's from Darren Aronovsky, the director of Requiem for a Dream.

Wow, I completely forgot about this movie. Well, I haven't thought about it much, but one movie comes to mind:

Chinatown.

It's a surprisingly good movie.
