4. Children of Men
5. Magnolia
6. Punch-Drunk Love

Most of them are psychological dramas, just as a warning. Absolutely brilliant movies I think, but I know a lot of people aren't a fan of that genre movie....

American Beauty was sort of bizarre, but I liked it.

Yeah, thats what I liked about it. Especially the use of colors to emphasize emotional aspects of the story. Anytime you saw bright red, you knew it was significant to Kevin Spacey's character on some level....

I am a huge film buff! I love story telling in general and I think film can be a great vehicle for that. I also studied the history of film at college.

Here's a list of some of my favorites. Like others before me, I will not include well-seen classics that I love like Casablanca or Jaws. So, here are some movies I love that maybe you haven't seen before. I include a comment for each one. Check them out if you've never seen them before. (In order of release)

1) Little Ceasar, Crime, 1931. An entertaining gangster movie and Edward G. Robinson's persona shines through perfectly.
2) Modern Times, Comedy, 1936. Charlie Chaplin critiques the politics of the day and captures the angst of the Great Depression all while providing many laughs.
3) Stagecoach, Western, 1939. Perhaps the only good John Wayne movie; the always dependable Thomas Mitchell gives one of the best supporting performances ever. A simple travel in a stagecoach becomes a hectic journey.
4) Laura, Film Noir, 1944. Otto Preminger creates a seductive and sedative dream-like atmosphere with a perfect mystery nestled in the middle.
5) Double Indemnity, Film Noir, 1944. The distinct noir narration is defined in this femme-fatale trap-story about a sucker who falls for the wrong married lady. See 1981's superb Body Heat for a similar tale(, although not a remake)
6)Arsenic and Old Lace, Comedy, 1944. Frank Capra's dysfunctional and crazy family here is still funny and charming. Peter Lorre as a crooked and fraudulent doctor is especially memorable.
7) The Best Years of Our Lives, Drama, 1946. A "heartwarming movie" that is actually entertaining, real and inspiring. Every bit as good as It's a Wonderful Life, which it won over for Best Picture at the Oscar.
8) Where the Sidewalk Ends, Film Noir/Crime, 1950. Preminger/Tierney/Andrews team again to make a great noir and possibly the best story about corrupt or questionable cops in the line of duty.
9) From Here to Eternity, Drama, 1953. Everyday soldiers in Hawaii deal with a corrupt chain of command just before December 1941. Captures themes of adultrey, corruption and war all while telling a vividly distinct human story.
10) Rififi, Crime/Film Noir, 1955. The first true heist film is the best. A tense exposition and climax falls to a tragic ending that would make Sophocles proud.
11) The Bridge on the River Kwai, War, 1957. I'm man enough to admit this is the one movie that did make me cry (The reflective speech by Col. Nicholson, btw). Not just a simple dramatic retelling of the hellish conditions at a Japanese POW camp but a deep reflections on the limits and mysteries of life.
12) North By Northwest, Thriller, 1959. Hitchcock's best imo. Cary Grant captures a wimpy ad-executive who stumbles unwittingly into an international conspiracy. James Mason and Martin Landeau provide an authentically evil and creepy villain (respectively).
13) Inherit the Wind, Drama, 1960. Arguably the best court drama in film but definitely my favorite. Based on WJ Bryans and Clarence Darrow, Spencer Tracy and Fredric March have a great philosophical and verbal standoff.
14) From Russia with Love, Thriller, 1963. The best James Bond film asthetically. Maintaining the pulp and thrilling exoticness of Fleming's original stories, FRWL features Connery at his best and the great Robert Shaw as his psychotic assassin doppelganger.
15) Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, Comedy/Drama, 1964. Stanley Kubrick began to write a script of a thrilling Cold War catastrophe but it morphed into a subtle, black comedy on the absurdity of the arm races and standoffs. Peter Sellers plays several hilarious roles including the wild-armed Strangelove, George C. Scott is perfect as the LeMay-clone and a young james earl Jones makes an appearance
16) Kaidan, Horror, 1964. A ghost story anthology from Japan featuring folk tales of the supernatural. Some of the most stunning cinemotography you will ever see, the stories are engaging and entertaining. Very influential on supernatural films in Japan and Hollywood.
17) Le Samouraï, Crime, 1967. Melville creates a gloomy storm over beautiful Paris in this tale of a heartless mob hitman living a spartan life but his latest kill leaves a witness and slowly things begin to unravel. Alan Delon fits the role as the handsome man without remorse.
18) The Day of the Jackal, Thriller, 1973. Based on my favorite novel, the right-wing of France hires a foreign assassin, so anonyomous that he is only known as the Jackal, to kill President de Gaulle. The meticulous killer sets up for the nearly impossible kill while French authorities work to foil it as the clock winds down.
19) Général Idi Amin Dada, Documentary, 1974. What is it like to be an egomaniac dictator? Ever wonder what it would be like to follow a banana republican for a few weeks? That's what a French film crew did here and it offered a look at the ruthless dictator of Uganda as he gave speeches, held parties, went on a safari, chastised a cabinet member(who was found dead in a ditch a few days later...coincidence? no), and of course played war games with his army. Scary thing is this jolly guy almost seems like a friendly small-time politician if you forget that he killed tens of thousands and turned a modern country into shambles.
20) The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, Crime, 1974. Perhaps the best hostage-heist film, an odd choice of vehicle to hijack...a subway train in New York City. A lot of tension, grit and a little bit of dark humor, this is worth checking out.
21)Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia, Western/Crime, 1974. If you want to see the best of Sam Peckinpah, The Wild Bunch is probably your best bet. But, this caper might best capture his vision and spirit. Violent, brutal and bloody, this modern day western features thugs, drug dealers, slackers and other low-life misfits scrambling to collect the physical head of a man named Alfredo Garcia, who has a 1 million dollar bounty.
22) Three Days of the Condor, Thriller, 1975. North By Northwest for the Watergate Era=Paranoia, Paranoia, Paranoia. Robert Redford is a CIA analyst who can't trust anyone once he stumbles into a large conspiracy ran by the shadows of Langley.
23) Blade Runner, Sci-Fi/Film Noir, 1983. Replicants, practically human robots outlawed on Earth, are hunted down by cops called blade runners. But when a team of rebellious replicants embark on a baffling spree in 2020 LA, the best retired-blade runner is assigned to retire them. Amazing special effects, great acting and direction are only topped perhaps by the great philosophical questions raised in this Philip K. Dick-story.
24) Glengarry Glen Ross, Drama, 1992. Always-be-closing. That sums up this David Mamet tale of competing real estate salesmen. With perhaps the best ensemble cast ever, snappy and foul dialogue fly across the screen. A nice jazz soundtrack adds to the atmosphere wonderfully (these past two are probably my favorites)
25) Falling Down, Drama, 1993. Not by any means a classic, but a movie that drew me in when I stumbled upon it on cable. Joel Schuemacher is a bipolar director making crap movies and engaging ones, but this one features Michael Douglass as a downsized nobody who lost his family, job and home. To be lost in an urban metropolis through social and societal alienation breeds desperation and nearly guarantees interesting drama.

Anybody ever seen any of these? Thoughts?

From Russia with Love is one of my favorite Bond films. Plus the Bond girl in that is the best looking one.

Bridge Over the River Kwai and North by Northwest are classics.

Bladerunner is one of the best Scifi movies ever made.

Great post! I've seen all of four of the films you listed. The Bridge on the River Kwai, North By Northwest, Blade Runner, and Glengarry Glen Ross. I loved all of them, I'd have to say my favorite is Glengarry Glen Ross by a decent margin. I'm waiting for Dr. Stangelove to come in, I'll have to check out the others on your list. Thanks again.

It's nice to know somebody else likes Punch-Drunk Love, that movie is great.

I took your lead and followed ih8brady with another list that didn't include the classics.

I hated Adaptation until the last twenty minutes. I don't know, it just caught me as great. I could see why someone would hate Magnolia. It is way too long and preachy, but I like whats left there. I think the story about the game show host is fantastic. And Paul Thomas Anderson is my favorite director.

Punch-Drunk Love is the only good film Sandler has ever done.

The Lives of Others was a film I wanted to see, but forgot about. I am going to watch that next.

16) Kaidan, Horror, 1964. A ghost story anthology from Japan featuring folk tales of the supernatural. Some of the most stunning cinemotography you will ever see, the stories are engaging and entertaining. Very influential on supernatural films in Japan and Hollywood.
17) Le Samouraï, Crime, 1967. Melville creates a gloomy storm over beautiful Paris in this tale of a heartless mob hitman living a spartan life but his latest kill leaves a witness and slowly things begin to unravel. Alan Delon fits the role as the handsome man without remorse.
18) The Day of the Jackal, Thriller, 1973. Based on my favorite novel, the right-wing of France hires a foreign assassin, so anonyomous that he is only known as the Jackal, to kill President de Gaulle. The meticulous killer sets up for the nearly impossible kill while French authorities work to foil it as the clock winds down.
19) Général Idi Amin Dada, Documentary, 1974. What is it like to be an egomaniac dictator? Ever wonder what it would be like to follow a banana republican for a few weeks? That's what a French film crew did here and it offered a look at the ruthless dictator of Uganda as he gave speeches, held parties, went on a safari, chastised a cabinet member(who was found dead in a ditch a few days later...coincidence? no), and of course played war games with his army. Scary thing is this jolly guy almost seems like a friendly small-time politician if you forget that he killed tens of thousands and turned a modern country into shambles.
20) The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, Crime, 1974. Perhaps the best hostage-heist film, an odd choice of vehicle to hijack...a subway train in New York City. A lot of tension, grit and a little bit of dark humor, this is worth checking out.
21)Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia, Western/Crime, 1974. If you want to see the best of Sam Peckinpah, The Wild Bunch is probably your best bet. But, this caper might best capture his vision and spirit. Violent, brutal and bloody, this modern day western features thugs, drug dealers, slackers and other low-life misfits scrambling to collect the physical head of a man named Alfredo Garcia, who has a 1 million dollar bounty.
22) Three Days of the Condor, Thriller, 1975. North By Northwest for the Watergate Era=Paranoia, Paranoia, Paranoia. Robert Redford is a CIA analyst who can't trust anyone once he stumbles into a large conspiracy ran by the shadows of Langley.
23) Blade Runner, Sci-Fi/Film Noir, 1983. Replicants, practically human robots outlawed on Earth, are hunted down by cops called blade runners. But when a team of rebellious replicants embark on a baffling spree in 2020 LA, the best retired-blade runner is assigned to retire them. Amazing special effects, great acting and direction are only topped perhaps by the great philosophical questions raised in this Philip K. Dick-story.
24) Glengarry Glen Ross, Drama, 1992. Always-be-closing. That sums up this David Mamet tale of competing real estate salesmen. With perhaps the best ensemble cast ever, snappy and foul dialogue fly across the screen. A nice jazz soundtrack adds to the atmosphere wonderfully (these past two are probably my favorites)
25) Falling Down, Drama, 1993. Not by any means a classic, but a movie that drew me in when I stumbled upon it on cable. Joel Schuemacher is a bipolar director making crap movies and engaging ones, but this one features Michael Douglass as a downsized nobody who lost his family, job and home. To be lost in an urban metropolis through social and societal alienation breeds desperation and nearly guarantees interesting drama.

Anybody ever seen any of these? Thoughts?

Cool list, I have only watched a few of these, but I love lists like this so I can have an idea of what films I would like to see in the future.

I would like to see what well viewed movies you like as well.

Pacino in general has some brilliant movies, Dog Day Afternoon, Serpico, Scent of a Woman, Insomnia and many many more.

Paul Newman as noted by my many posts about him on this forum, love the guy, love his films.

STEVE MCQUEEN - The Great Escape is one of the best films i've ever seen, Magnificent Seven, The Original Thomas Crown Affair, Towering Inferno WITH Paul Newman.

Nicholson/De Niro movies......Deer Hunter, The Shining etc.

MAJOR LEAGUE
CADDYSHACK
PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES

It was good, i think a tad over rated. I also think The Prestige is very over rated and No Country for Old Men. So i await all comers.......

In green are the ones i've seen.

Casablanca- It's good to see somone else other than me with this on thier top list. I think that movie is just increadible. I literally, at one time had it memorized. I'm not even close to joking. I watched it at least once a day for about a two year period.

I have introduced many people to the movie. Lots of people don't really have an understanding about Vichy France and everything that went along with it. Lots of the symbols (Like the Lorraine Cross being the sign of the resistance for example) aren't common knowledge these days.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iYbEPZVVIA
This scene still sends a chill down my spine. I start tearing up about halfway through and it's not even MY national anthem.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8ATo3vNmu0
"Where were you last night?"
"That's so long ago I don't remember."
"Will I see you tonight?"
"I don't make plans that far ahead."

and another favorite;
"I've often speculated on why you don't return to America..Did you abscond with the church funds? Perhaps you ran off with a Senator's wife. I'd like to think you killed a man...It's the romantic in me."

Finally, the scene where Elsa returns...A bitter, hurt and angry Rick looks at her with about as much venom as he can muster...
"Was it just me and Lazlo...Or were there others in between...Or aren't you the kind to tell."

What a great movie. I think I'll dig out my DVD of it and watch it again today. It's been a while.

The Big Sleep is excellent. Also, if you would like other Bogart movies;
-The Petrified Forest (Bogie in his pre-star villian days)
-Key Largo (He and Bacall. Very good. Edward G Robinson is great in this one.)
-The Malteese Falcon (If you liked The Big Sleep, you'll like Falcon. I personally think it's a better movie) "When your slapped you'll take it and like it!" *Slap slap* :lol:

Blackocrates
08-05-2009, 04:24 PM
GoonBoss,

Rick Blaine has to be the coolest character ever. Followed closely by Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade.

I've seen the Maltese Falcon it was great. I just forgot to put it on my list.

I have another movie to add, The Great Dictator. Charlie Chaplin was amazing in this. It's both hilarious and disturbing and the final scene is one of the best I've seen. That speech is from the heart. Chaplin stepped out of character and spoke as himself.

I just watched "Pirates Of the Carabiean" .... Hot damn that's a good movie. It's as good a swashbuckler as anything Erol Flyn ever did.

Pirates is a really good movie.

Johnny Depp continues to have my admiration.

As long as you mean the original and not the sequels.

I edited my list back on page five. I added three movies that I forgot about. The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Grapes of Wrath and The Ox-Bow Incident. All are fantastic movies.

If you like westerns and haven't seen The Ox-Bow Incident then you should check it out. It's a great story and it has Henry Fonda in it.

Here is my Top Ten. I am excluding all films considered "classic", since that is sort of cheating. But, The Godfather Part II is the greatest film ever.

1. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
2. Sideways
3. Lost in Translation
4. Children of Men -- OK
5. Magnolia--- Favorite movie
6. Punch-Drunk Love - Best Adam Sandler movie
7. American Beauty ---Classic
8. Adaptation
9. The Truman Show --- Super underrated
10. 28 Days Later

We may be done with the past, but the past is not done with us.
