Best Movie List
Hey everyone, at the risk of sounding a bit cliche, i'd just like to know what everyones favourite films are. Even if its just the one or a HUGE list of films they love. If your compiling a list, it doesn't need to be in order, but if thats how you want to do it, thats fine. As a new user i'm not sure if a thread like this has been posted before, but hey, any excuse for a conversation. Thanks
I guess as i'm the one posting this thread i need to put my own list so here it is. Excuse me for the unprofessional way i explain my choices
Apocalypse Now - I just love the beginning when 'The End' by The Doors is played, just an iconic moment for me. The music a film has really plays a huge role for me anyway, just adds to the whole experience. I also love the famous assault on the 'charlie' camp when Kilgore (appropriate name) plays Wagner. To think, its all because the waves 'crash both ways'.
Forest Gump - Don't judge me, as i said the soundtrack is a big thing for me, and this film has an EXCELLENT one. I think it really sucks you in as you see his life develop through those amazing decades. The subtle (or not so) references to famous people such as Elvis really make the film worth watching. All round a nice, spirit lifting film.
Goodfellas - I could watch this all day (and i have). When they have to kill everyone off after the La Tonza heist is one of the many parts in the film that makes you really question the former morals of the gang that lure you in at the start. The way you see former friends switch completely so save their own skin is a real highlight of the film and makes it so much more dramatic then it already is. Apart from the amazing soundtrack, the highlight of the film for me is definatley the way in which Henrys life spirals out of control when drugs are added into the mix or illegal activities he is trying to juggle. My personal opinion of this film is that the moral (in which every film as one) is that money can draw you in and take over your life, and once it is taken away from you, you will do anything to get it back... but i suppose we all knew this anyway.
The rest i'm just going to list as it's getting late but they are all amazing films
-The Lives of Others
-The Godfather Trilogy
-Dead Mans Shoes
-Nightmare Before Christmas
