Favorite Movies of All Time
This is my personal list of movies to watch as soon I get a chance.
Decided to create it because I had to throw away old magazines to create space for buying more.
Julie & Julia, Nora Efron, 2009
Capitalism, Michael Moor, 2009
Los abrazos rotos, Pedro Armodobal, 2010
The Box, Richard Kelly, 2010
he Portrait of Dorian Grey, 2009
Changeling, Clint Eastwood, 2009
Magnolia, Paul Thomas Anderson, 1999
The other day I bought a magazine in which there was a ranking of top 500 films selected by movie freaks and the magazine readers. My friend and I tried to guess which ones are in top 30, and we each picked 10 films. We successfully guessed only one or two films each! When we looked at the actual ranking, I'd got really mad because most films did not make any sense. The #1, of course, was Godfather. This is alright. But the rest? Here are the top 10.
#1. Godfather (part1)
#2. Raiders, the Lost Ark - Indiana Jones (Come on, is this really the best film of all time?!)
#3. Starwars the Empire Strikes Back
#4. The Shawshank Redemption (So typical. It's almost like a choice of those people who watch only 1 or 2 films a year. I think there are so many better films than this.)
#5. Jaws (This may be OK, I just don't pick this one in my top 10)
#6. Good Fellas (I don't like gang films, except for Untouchables and Godfather. Is this really that good?)
#7. Apocalypse Now Redux (I haven't watched this one)
#8. Singing in the Rain
#9. Pulp Fiction (This one was one of my choice, but I would place it in somewhere between 15th and 25th best)
#10. Fight Club (Why all the guys love this film? I didn't like it that much... so unsanitary)
