[QUOTE=Rusty100;26991801]movies with a purple cross that absolutely deserve to be on the list dogma the fifth element there will be blood (what the fuck this won movie of the year when it was released how does it not deserve to be there) in the loop the prestige thinking otherwise means you are wrong [editline]27th December 2010[/editline] list is especially invalid because it has a fistful of dollars but not the good the bad and the ugly (unless i saw it checked it then forgot it was there)[/QUOTE] Never saw the movies you mentioned, thanks for those, I'll look for them when I have time to watch some more movies. Also, In The Loop is on there, you must have missed it.
Labyrinth and Spaceballs are on there? Are you serious?
labyrinth is great! but yeah, if youre gonna put one 80s jim henson movie on this list, it should be the dark crystal, not labyrinth
Someone should edit the list to remove the ones that do not belong on the list, And replace them with ones that should be on the the list.

Seen 40 of those movies. wtf is Hot Fuzz doing on that list? [editline]27th December 2010[/editline] Yojimbo and A Fistful of Dollars are amazing films.
People need to stop saying films don't belong on the list. Every single one of them belongs there for somebody, because people have different taste in films.
[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/du8Qb.jpg[/IMG] I've hardly seen any of them, i don't watch alot of movies. Some of my favourite movies are on there though - Hot fuzz, The prestige and 28 days later were all great films. Actually i liked most of the ones i ticked/have seen (Can't remember Groundhog day though, but i've seen it)
Pretty sure I have seen all of the Must See's... [img]http://img607.imageshack.us/img607/1903/moviesr.png[/img] If there is any major movie that I have not crossed out and would undoubtably love, please tell me which.

[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4gHCmTQDVI[/media] I should really watch some more movies from the list, there's a few i've been planning to watch.

I was doing this hastily, reviewing it now I can see that I left event horizon on the list without a purple cross and that definitely isn't essential viewing In retrospect, yes - there will be blood should be on the list, my mistake.
Needs Scarface as well
Pandorum wasn't that great of a movie. Good but not that good.
I've seen "sphere" on that list, it starts out really stupid and cliche and then it gets amazing.
[QUOTE=collegegrad;26993431]Never saw the movies you mentioned, thanks for those, I'll look for them when I have time to watch some more movies. Also, In The Loop is on there, you must have missed it.[/QUOTE] no they are all there, he just said they were bad. when they're actually excellent.
[QUOTE=Rusty100;26996763]no they are all there, he just said they were bad. when they're actually excellent.[/QUOTE] Never said they were bad, they just didn't leave that much of an impression on me after I watched them. I shouldn't of said "do not belong on the list", definitely the wrong connotations.
[QUOTE=Draicia;26991743][img_thumb]http://i51.tinypic.com/29m3guc.jpg[/img_thumb] Yellow = Movies I want to see Purple cross = Movies I've seen that do not belong on the list[/QUOTE] why the fuck did you purple cross the prestige, what is wrong with you [editline]27th December 2010[/editline] [QUOTE=King_of_Town;26994764]Seen 40 of those movies. wtf is Hot Fuzz doing on that list? [/QUOTE] hott fuzz should definitely not be on the list; while it's good Shaun of the Dead is undoubtedly the superior film

Haha. Dog soldiers is on that list. That brings back memories.
OP hasn't seen Star Wars, Jurassic Park, The Matrix, Back to the Future or Indiana Jones. What rock, exactly, have you been living under?
[media]http://img257.imageshack.us/img257/4052/moviesta.jpg[/media] Plus movies I've seen from Rusty's post. [quote]Batman Begins Carrie Dawn of the Dead Drag Me To Hell Enter the Void Inception Inglourious Basterds Kick-Ass Poltergeist Shutter Island Silence of the Lambs Terminator 2 The Descent The Hills Have Eyes The Illusionist World's Greatest Dad[/quote] I still have a ton of stuff to see, shit.
[img]http://imageshack.dk/imagesfree/ZqE58279.jpg[/img] Films I've only seen partially or don't clearly remember, if at all, are marked with ½.
[QUOTE=BmB;26998037]OP hasn't seen Star Wars, Jurassic Park, The Matrix, Back to the Future or Indiana Jones. What rock, exactly, have you been living under?[/QUOTE] Well I've seen part of Star Wars, and even thought I'm risking a shit storm, I hated that shit. It was very boring to me, and I really don't know what aspect of it people like. I'm sure Jurassic Park was awesome when it came out, but I feel like if I watch it today, it'll look shitty because I'm much more used to awesome CGI. The other 3 are my fault. I'll watch them sometime, although I tried watching the first 10 minutes of The Matrix a few months ago and it got boring and I was sick at the time, so I just stopped watching it.
Hot fuzz was a great movie, i liked it more than Shaun of the dead but that was good aswell.

Wow you haven't seen the Lord of the Rings either.
[img]http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/1944/herpaderpq.png[/img] there are a few I didn't cross off because I haven't seen them in nearly 10 years so I have no real opinion of them.
I just realized I still haven't seen Taxi Driver, jesus.
