EASTWOOD - 'Mystic River' [and what a phenomenally elegant-in-its-simplicity score to this equally moving picture]

SCOTT - 'Blade Runner' [not sure which version/ending I like best...a "cyberpunk" classic, providing a TON of artistic inspiration for the nascent Detroit Techno movement in its late '80's infancy and beyond]

Hard hard question really.

It's like someone asking me which is my favourite type of chocolate.

"Um ... chocolate"

"No your favourite type of chocolate"

"Um ... chocolate"

There is many in each genre ... it can change daily ... todays are:

DRAMA – Shawshank Redemtion

ACTION/ADVENTURE – Indiana Jones and The Lost Ark

MILITARY – Gettysburg

COMEDY – National Lampoons Animal House

ROMANTIC – When Harry met Sally

HORROR – 28 Days Later


Hell ... this list will change by the end of the day!

Funnest thread ever. I'm adding my choices in the other three categories and top 10 directors. Oh, and what made me cry.

Western: Unforgiven ('Any man don't wanna get killed, better head on out the back." AWESOME!)
Sports: The Club (Aussie Rules flick with Jack Thompson and the absolute legend Graham Kennedy)
Musical: Moulin Rouge (don't care what anyone says, that flamenco version of 'Roxanne' gets me every time)

Top Ten Directors:

1. Martin Scorcese
2. Joel and Ethan Cohen
3. Francis Ford Coppola
4. Ridley Scott
5. Stanley Kubrick
6. Clint Eastwood
7. Brian DePalma
8. Quentin Tarantino
9. Edgar Wright
10. Robert Rodriguez

Movie that made me cry: Life as a House. Like a damn baby. That last line, man. I lose it every time. I even tear up when I know it's coming. Funnily enough, no reaction whatsoever from my girlfriend. She wept like a weeping weeper when what happens to Spike happens to Spike in the last episode of Buffy (which is the only time I've seen her cry).

Lets do top 10 soundtracks next.

GREAT idea, amigo.

In no particular [-ly conscious] order:

  1. Koyaanisqatsi - Philip Glass [SEE THIS FILM]
  2. Powaqotsi - Philip Glass [SEE THIS FILM]
  3. Mystic River - Clint Eastwood
  4. The New World - James Horner [Wagner's 'Das Rheingold: Prelude' assures the engaged viewer of art's solitary status as a manifestation of Love In Its Essence.
  5. Major League [I know. I know...] - Randy Newman et al.
  6. The Godfather [throughout the entire saga]
  7. Garden State [and you know it, too]
  8. High Tech Soul - VA [of the acclaimed 'Detroit Techno' genre, in its rightful place providing soundtrack]
  9. Walk the Line [all due respect to Mr. and Mrs. J Cash--their legacy will live for many, many years; I actually feel J. Phoenix & R. Witherspoon's version of 'Jackson' is better than the original] [fret not, Johnny Cash fans; he returns to his rightful place in a minute...]
  10. Generation Kill [the recent premium cable mini-series. The music was on point, to grab a phrase, throughout; and the a capella version of 'Boyz 'N da Hood' by First Recon as they "roll with impunity" through S. Iraq is right-on at its Proudest! And lé grand finál montage(spoiler-of-a-sort-alert), scored by Johnny Cash's instant-classic [from his final studio album] 'The Man Comes Around' plants this surprisingly pressing as it shoves and grooves soundtrack on this list.]

EDIT to clean/finish up

& then some

Powaquatsi and Koyaanisqatsi are great films and soundtracks.
Since they are your favorites, may I recommend the soundtrack to "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence" by Ryuichi Sakamoto.
