Hi all. I just felt like making a fun laid back thread and as I was sitting on my couch watching some movies on netflix the idea came to me. I am sure there have been threads like this before but since so many people join here everyday i thought it might be nice to do this so the new people could have some input.

My favorite genre is horror. No I am not a psycho or a sadist. I love being scared and I love how in the really great horror movies the music is tuned in to the action on screen so much so that your heart begins to race just by hearing the tempo pick up. I also love to watch the development of the main character and see how the choices they make and the actions they take help them survive the killer.

My top 5 movies of all time are not all horror.

1. Halloween (1978) This movie scared the crap out of me when I first saw it. It also has no blood in the movie. How many horror movies can say that. Jamie Lee Curtis was the perfect heroine for this role and she played her part perfectly. This movie would not have been as scary though had it not been for the music that was written by John Carpenter. During a documentary about the movie John states that he showed the movie to some hollywood big wig without the music and the person said it was not scary at all. The simple addition of the piano at just the right times in the movie made all the difference.

2. Clue: This movie is good on so many fronts. There is plenty of suspense and comedy. The actors that played their roles were perfectly chosen. This is one of those movies that if I am bored and want to watch a movie but nothing sounds good, this one can always be watched

3. The Crow: I like this movie because I am big on the paranormal, and a guy coming back to life to avenge the death of him and his girlfriend fits the bill. It is such a shame that Brandon Lee's life was cut short while making this movie.

4: Caddyshack: Nothing says classic comedy like this movie does. The main cast was a who's who of hollywood at the time, and there was virtually no time where a person could not be laughing during this movie. Bill Murray and his quest to kill the gopher is probably the most funny sub plot in any movie that I have seen. Chevy Chase's delivery of his lines still make me laugh just by thinking about it. Whenever I need a pick me up I can pop this movie in and disappear into it for an hour and a half.

5.Princess Bride: This is one of those guilty pleasure movies. It is a love story/comedy. Wesley's quest to find Buttercup is filled with action and comedy. It is a perfect movie to watch on a first date or very early on in a new relationship.

Thats my list. I look forward to hearing what others have to say.

OMG What the Bleep do we know? I thought I was the only person who has seen that. Everytime I see frozen water, or look at myself in the mirror when I am mad, or bounce a basketball too. Love that movie Holy Crap!

How the world is pertaining to physics, and how when you freeze water while playing Beethoven the crystals are beautiful, but blaring Lamb of God, etc., turns the crystals into deformities. Very awesome movie.

Here is some info on the Scientist Dr. Masaru Emoto who freezes water: www.youtube.com...

Dune (the origional)
Starship Troopers (again, the origional)
Fight Club
Sean of the Dead
Super Troopers


If I happen to be flipping channels, and come across any of the above five films, I can almost never move on.
But ask me tomorro, and my answers will likely vary. Except Dune and Fight Club, they are always in the top five with me.

Dr. Strangelove (Because I went to War and worked in the "War Room" and my job was the big boards)
Close Encounters - because of all the - drum roll - conspiracy thoughts it got going in my child brain
Foul Play (silly 70's Goldie Hawn, Dudley Moore and Burgess Merideth at their finest)
Car Wash (another silly 70s, George Carlin, Richard Pryor - good music and a real period piece)

I guess I am mostly stuck in the 70s - just saw Super8 set in the 70s and I think it is gonna make my list, best new flick in ages.

It all depends on my mood...

COMEDY - "Airplane!" I could watch this over and over again. I love spoof movies, but the older ones were the best. Spaceballs was the best modern one, and of course, Blazing Saddles.

ROMANCE - "The Cutting Edge" I have no idea why, but apparently, I'm not alone as a guy who likes this movie..."toepick!"

HORROR - "The Omen" I love biblical horror, so my top 5 would be all about this aspect.

ADVENTURE - "The Princess Bride" This movie is really ALL genres at once, but overall, this movie succeeds on SO many levels. This category could be broken up into many other categores though.

SCI-FI - "Star Wars" C'mon, this movie redefined the entire movie-going experience.

WESTERN - "Tombstone" Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday, classic

FANTASY - "The NeverEnding Story" The sequels sucked, but the original is a true classic.

So many others that could be mentioned here.
