Mornin '13

We continue in the spirit of yesterday's musical thread, although in a slightly different direction this time.

This time, I'd like you to name three movies. Remember, three of your favorite (or most memorable) movies.

If you wish, you can name a trilogy, but if you do so, that's it. You don't get to name three trilogies. So, it's either three separate movies or just one trilogy. Oh and you can't name all the Harry Potter movies either (that's just gay).

Anyway, here's my choice:

  • Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope
  • Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back
  • Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

I've thought long about this. There are so many movies, so many good ones. I enjoyed watching them over and over again, but out of all the movies I've ever seen in my entire life, these three I just know by heart. I know every sound, every scene and every character by heart. If you woke me up in the middle of the night, I could recite the entire dialogue from all three movies with my eyes closed. Love the music, love the acting, love the stories and the lore.

If I had to choose something other than these three movies, I guess I'd go for Love and Death, Hannah and Her Sisters and Kramer vs. Kramer.

I don't have a list of favorites, but there are some movies i just have to watch over and over and over again whenever i catch them on tv, for example:

Bowling for Columbine

I could name tens of dozens of other films but these are the first that came up to my mind :)
  Vader: Those are your favorites then :)
im_stardust Feb 28 2013, 02:58 am EST
I know why you choose Kramer vs Kramer among the Woody Allen movies.

For me:

There Will Be Blood
12 Angry Men


3 Iron
The 7th Seal

But closest to my heart, remains the LOTR trilogy ...and we can easily include The Hobbit there.
  Vader: that's a solid list right there

Vader [STAFF] Feb 28 2013, 04:33 am EST
That's way too abstract and complicated for me.
im_stardust Feb 28 2013, 05:08 am EST
Do more top 3!! How about top 5's ? top 10's ? top 50's ? top 100? They're meaningless but let's do 'em!!!

Dark Knight
Revenge of the Sith
aaaaaaaand, not sure on the last one... let's say Return of the King, director's cut, of course.
Moesha [STAFF] Feb 28 2013, 05:47 am EST
Blade Runner
Midnight Run
Blues Brothers

The Matrix
Return of the King

I find it hard to watch any lotr movie now. Watched them many times.

If animated movies are allowed I'd replace the last one with Ghost In The Shell.
Hamsterkill Feb 28 2013, 05:57 am EST
Dark City
Dark Crystal

For the third one, I can't choose between 'Dead Man' and 'The City of Lost Children (La Cité des Enfants Perdus)', so I won't.

Choosing a movie that's based on a book would make me feel dirty.
  touretul: I subscribe to Dead Man and Dark City
touretul Feb 28 2013, 06:55 am EST
3 movies? Fuck that! 3 bands was hard enough.
I will name the 3 movies that I watched the most, on and on, but by no means they are the best movies I've ever seen.
So, in order of appearace:

1. The Big Lebowski

2. American Psycho

3. A Scanner Darkly

But as a horror and intense drama fan. there are movies that were so overwhelming, that I watched only once, and a second time, long time after.

Oh, and I forgot... FUCK 3! 4 movies I'm always watching

4. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Of all the amazing movies that were produced in the last century, fucking Star Wars is your favourite? Are you retarded?
  RenegadeCZ: *flame war*
GrgoljBlaster Feb 28 2013, 07:29 am EST
Speaking of music, last night I went to a gig where the band was playing tunes from games like Duke Nukem, Mirror's Edge, Doom. They're pretty badass and, as far as I know, first Serbian band that plays videogame music.

As for the movies:
Top Secret

Call me shallow but what can I do, I love science fiction and comedies.
