[QUOTE=Zoran;35949671]I found the 3rd Transformers to be really good.[/QUOTE] how?
Watched it solely for action action probably
Next to Star Wars and Kill Bill, I think The Matrix Trilogy has some of the best action scenes of all time. Then again, that's probably the popular opinion around here, so it's not so much of a confession. I just felt the need to say it.

The first one is the best, and the second one has a few redeeming qualities but the third is dog shit. The films were about philosophy, specifically epistemology. Of course, what they're remembered for, are the cool action scenes and not the philosophical ideas presented and displayed. However obvious, or hidden these were, they made the movie. This is my favourite scene in the entire series: [video=youtube;Z7BuQFUhsRM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7BuQFUhsRM[/video]
[QUOTE=Rusty100;35949592]holy grail is only funny if you're 10 at the time of viewing, and rock horror is thoroughly average just watch evil dead 2 [editline]14th May 2012[/editline] ur the worst dude[/QUOTE] Eh, no, as 95% of 10 year olds wouldn't understand the humor.
[QUOTE=Carne;35953437]Eh, no, as 95% of 10 year olds wouldn't understand the humor.[/QUOTE] I saw it when I was pretty young. Then again, I saw Time Bandits when I was five years old, so I'll have to excuse myself from this conversation, as I don't count.
Moonraker is one of my favorite Bond movies
I love really cheesy cheap 80's films. Deadly Prey, Samurai Cop and the like.
I liked the first Transformers movie by Michael Bay.
[QUOTE=Rusty100;35949592] [editline]14th May 2012[/editline] ur the worst dude[/QUOTE] I know that I'm not agreed with a lot on here, but I don't know about me being "the worst". Anyone remember RainstormChurch?

I barely managed to sit through 2001. Liked the book, though. Also, I wasn't very impressed by the Matrix or Blade Runner (although I like Minority Report and Deus Ex)
[img]http://www.musicweb-international.com/film/2003/Jun03/pianist.jpg[/img] A few years ago in school we were watching this in History. It got to the scene where the nazis barged into a familys house and the family had to stand and salute. They all did so, except the guy in the wheelchair. So the nazis picked up the wheelchair and threw him off the balcony. This scene my friend behind me laughed a tiny bit, which got me laughing a little. Then it was back and forth until we were both laughing out loud. So bad
The exorcist creeps me the fuck out and I have always completely refused to watch it.

I didn't find The Exorcist or The Shining scary at all.
[QUOTE=zingo;35959582]I didn't find The Exorcist or The Shining scary at all.[/QUOTE] I didn't find "The Exorcist" to be that scary, but "The Shining" was horrifying to me. Then again, I watched it for the first time when I was about 10 years old...

"Dude, look at this guy's name..." *points at something in the book* [sp]"Mier Katz"[/sp] I shit you not. I spent the rest of that book telling myself, "You are in a public classroom, reading a first-person account of the Holocaust. Do not laugh, you terrible fucking bastard. Do. Not. Laugh."

For the longest time, Jurassic Park was my favorite movie of all time, because it had a little bit of everything in it and managed to still be completely amazing: Comedy (well, if you count Ian Malcom's snarkiness as Comedy), Drama, Action, a tiny bit of romance (Dr. Grant and Dr. Sattler were in a relationship in the movie, so that kinda counts), great special effects, and a great cast. This all ended a few weeks ago when I saw The Avengers. Jurassic Park is still a solid #2, but I feel that Avengers had everything I said was great about Jurassic Park, except it was done better. I am a huge Godzilla fan, and every now and then I WILL take the time to Marathon through all 29 movies, even the American one. I mean, despite everything, the American Godzilla was a great monster movie. It just shouldn't have been called "Godzilla". Also, this marathon also includes the really shitty one that took place in a kid's imagination and had a talking Minya/Minilla (Godzilla's son, the one that looked like a mound of lumpy mashed potatoes). I used to love Star Wars, but my feelings for it have waned in the recent years. While I'm still willing to watch them, I have plenty of other things I'm willing to watch. Finally, if TV confessions count, I've spent several years watching nothing but my Mystery Science Theater 3000 DVDs, with the occasional Rifftrax (the internet follow-up created by the MST alums who made up the final cast of MST) mixed in. It's only recently that I have started to watch other TV shows that my brother lends me (I just finished Season 2 of Community earlier today).
imo the t-rex scene in jurassic park is still the most visually perfect scene in film
[QUOTE=Anonymuzz;35988012]imo the t-rex scene in jurassic park is still the most visually perfect scene in film[/QUOTE] Jurassic Park has the most impressive CGI of all time for me. I mean, the movie is 20 years old and it's still passable today. That's an accomplishment on a massive scale.
[QUOTE=TheFilmSlacker;35994272] I mean, the movie is 20 years old[/QUOTE] OH GOD WHY I FEEL SO OLD NOW!
I've watched the movie King Arthur (2004 version) 16 times in the past two weeks.
[QUOTE=lemoncurry;35994569]I've watched the movie King Arthur (2004 version) 16 times in the past two weeks.[/QUOTE] The only part of that movie that I even remember was the scene where King Arthur pushes the female archer's fingers back into place.
So far (6 episodes in) I haven't laughed once at Arrested Development.
Collectively I have probably seen all of the Lord of the Rings. But I don't think I have ever sat down and watched one from start to finish. I want to, but I have just never gotten around to it. So out of the 10 hours or however long it goes for, I would probably recognize/remember about 2 of them.
I thought Amanda Young was going to do the naughty in Saw 3 when she took off her pants. I wanted Jeff Denlon to die a slow death when he [sp]shot Amanda dead in Saw 3.[/sp] I've nearly memorized the entire Saw series.
I loved Starsky and Hutch (remake)
I fell asleep trying to watch all 3 LOTR movies, just could not stand them. I did like the cartoon ones a bit though. Haven't ever seen Godfather, Reservoir Dogs, A Clockwork Orange, Blade Runner, and many others. Donnie Darko is probably my favorite sci-fi movie of all time. I've only seen 2001: A Space Odyssey once in its entirety but I've seen the beginning ape-man part at least 50 times. The only non-Pixar Disney movies I like are Mulan and Lion King. I fell asleep in the middle of Scarface and the beginning of Kill Bill vol.2 (I was sick at the time for both, though). I do not get any enjoyment from The Breakfast Club or Ferris Bueller's Day Off. [editline]22nd May 2012[/editline] Oh yeah I also don't like the new Batman movies. [editline]22nd May 2012[/editline] Haven't seen any Sean Connery Bond films. I love all 3 Matrix movies to death and cannot see what people dislike about the 3rd one. Arnold Schwarzenegger is genuinely my favorite actor of all time, even in Kindergarten Cop.
