TOP 10 FILMIC EXPERIENCES (redux)

Recommended Posts

Okay so what are everyone's top 10ish movies, shows, etc that they will heavily go to bat for.  Things that you think everyone must try at least once.

 

1. Lord Of The Rings - This whole series, (Return of the King if I had to pick one), is just the most epic thing to come to film. There's so much behind it you'd have to be remid of soul to not be moved or enjoy.  Perfect balance of fantasy, heart, and baddassery.

2. Pulp Fiction - I think, for various reasons, this is a must see film.  It changes the way you look at movies and is unlike anything else before it, or after.

3. The Office - I don't think there's another show that ever lives up to this level.  Perfect blend of humor and relatability.

4. The Matrix or T2 - I simply think these are the best action movies, that still resonate today and say more than just action. 

5. The Exorcist - This is the scariest movie of all time, hands down.  Fuck this movie.

7. Monte Python: Holy Grail or Team America - Both come from iconic writers of different decades, and their best work imo. This one's a toss up.

8. F.R.I.E.N.D.S - Yes Friends, why? Because fuck you, everyone needs to experience this lighter note every now and then.  

9. Burn After Reading or Big Lebowski - Coen Brothers.

10. *Insert Scorcese or Speilberg Film* - Lots to pick from.

 

Hm: Star Wars, Green Mile,  Kill Bill, Good Bad Ugly, Godfather 2, Fight Club, The Thing, Alien, Toy Story, Lion King, Inglorious Basterds, Sixth Sense, Tom Delonge Pursuit of Tone,

Realistically almost my entire list would be Star Wars movies so I'm just gonna limit this to one movie per franchise. No real order, but here's a few of my all time favorites.

Star Wars: A New Hope

Back to the Future

Spider-Man 2

LotR: Return of the King

Terminator 1 or 2 (can never decide which one I like more)

 

 

And that's all I can think of right now even though there are tons more that I love. I'm just blanking.

4) MacGruber

as most should, but the release of that and Repo Man is such a weird thing. Repo Man is based on a book, Repo! is based on a musical that considering the content is clearly based on the same book. Repo! was 2008, Repo Man was 2010. it's just a weird bag of cats all around.

I fucking love Repo! but I love it because it's a train wreck. it's like if The Room was a 18+ musical.

I did, and I did not like that movie. everyone thinks I'm talking about that movie. I'm really not into musicals strangely enough.
