Hmm, can’t think of many additions of my own right now, but I can give you my opinion on those movies I’ve seen.
Pulp Fiction: Hated it. I just don’t see what people see in it, sorry.
Seven Samurai: Rats, GOTTA see this movie someday. It was the inspiration for THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (Hey, THERE’S another classic!) Heck, there’s a video game based on a (futuristic) version of 7S coming out soon!
Speaking of classic Japanese movies, see RASHOMON if you can. It’s about the investigation of a crime in ancient japan- and, more importantly, an essay on how human nature distorts the Truth.
Citizen Kane just… bored me. Sorry.
Hellraiser and its sequels are surprisingly intelligent for Horror movies.
Edward Scissorhands was bizarrely touching.
Doctor Strangelove: Hated it. I KNOW it has an anti-war message! Just didn’t get it, I guess.
The Godfather movies failed to impress me.
The Great Escape was thrilling and touching.
Spartacus was OK.
Forrest Gump is an all-time favorite.
As is Big.
Mr. Smith goes to Washington: Classic.
To Kill a Mockingbird is, too.
Bridge over the River Kwai was good, but not as good as Great Escape.
African Queen was fun for a romantic movie.
Life is Beautiful was wonderful!
Seven? No, just… no.
Clockwork Orange… too weird.
The Hunt for Red October was a VERY well-written movie!
It’s a Wonderful Life is, despite the title, a surprisingly dark movie (everybody remembers the happy ending, but not all the misery the main character went thru!) In this case, however, it was a life-affirming experience, so thumbs-up from me.
(Hmm, I seem to hate movies with criminals as stars… doesn’t always mean they’re bad, tho.)
More opinions later.
OLD movie fan! :mwahaha:
