I see some people added some genres...


I think we need to add documentaries to the list; some docs are so much more powerful than any Hollywood film. I saw “The Times of Harvey Milk” when I was in middle school and it affected my life more than any scripted film has.

DRAMA – The Departed

ACTION/ADVENTURE – Predator

MILITARY – Braveheart

COMEDY – Love Actually

ROMANTIC – PS I Love You (tied with) Serendipity

HORROR – Evil Dead

SCIENCE FICTION/FANTASY – What Dreams May Come

That is harder than I thought.

While my viewing history is quite limited in this genre:

MUSICAL - Dreamgirls [I'm extremely biased toward anything regarding Motown...and Jennifer Hudson can blow! [that's Detroit-speak for "sing very, very well", a la Aretha Franklin]]

While we're at it, what about favorite films of certain directors?

SPIELBERG - 'Munich'

KUROSAWA - 'Dreams'

KUBRICK - 'A Clockwork Orange'

COPPOLA - 'Godfather II'

SCORSESE - 'Goodfellas'

ANDERSON - 'Magnolia'

COEN BROS. - 'The Big Lebowski' [I'm so glad that I found a place to get this one in....here's to you, LebowskiAcheiver!]

Each of these is very difficult to settle on JUST ONE. Like my previous entries, however, I refrained from thinking about it too much, and rather just settled on the first one which entered into my consciousness.

Gotta go with the gut.


EDIT to correct spelling of Steven Spielberg's name...

You make a good point.

DOCUMENTARY - 'Zeitgeist' [while some of the information seems suspect, this film flipped my world upside-down, for which I'm forever grateful]

And...
'ART'-FILM [not sure how else to classify this classic] - 'Koyaanisqatsi' [its companion film, 'Powaqatsi,' gets my vote for best original score]

I cried on my bed when Thorn Birds played each night in that series. I was going through puberty at the time.. was it my hormones or what it really that sad? I will have to rent it again sometime....


Yeah I remember that movie but I haven’t seen it in years. I think I had a crush on Jenny Agutter.

It is really that sad. I noticed the older I get the more the movie seems like a mini-soap opera, but in a good way.
I wanted them to really invent that plastic surgery machine.. lol. I liked her in American Werewolf in London.

I love that movie and it is in my private collection. I remember thinking how much our history would have changed if the fighters were able to engage the Japanese.
