The Matrix.

Oh, and kinda off topic, but I just saw The Butterfly Effect today. I bawled my eyes out at the end... Probably the saddest movie I've ever seen...

EDIT: I would say Fight Club, but...

We don't talk about Fight Club.

Pretty decent list, though I can't agree with some of them. I'm not a fan of Gone With the Wind, Schindler's List, or Saving Private Ryan, but the rest are good.

My top 15 -- not the greatest, but my favourite, are as follows (mostly in order):

1. Almost Famous (especially the director's cut; it's far superior)
2. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
3. Mystic River
4. Good Will Hunting
5. Sunset Blvd.
6. The Godfather
7. Casablanca
8. The Legend of Bagger Vance
9. American Beauty
10. The Apartment
11. Serenity
12. Amadeus
13. Raiders of the Lost Ark
14. Network
15. Ordinary People
Can't stop the signal.

Gonna have to say:
-Garden State
-Lost in Translation
-Superbad...........................These are my top 3 in order, the rest are not in order.
-Across The Universe
-Juno
-Mallrats
-Clerks
-UHF
-Donnie Darko
-American Pie

And I'd like to add that I fell asleep during Fight Club, so it can't be as good as everyone says it is. I never fall asleep during movies, especially halfway through.

Thanks for waiting.

Donnie Darko and Garden State are not revolutionary movies, nor two of the greatest movies of all time, no matter how much you like them.

There's nothing that seperates Donnie Darko from swill like The Butterfly Effect, Secret Window and other subpar mindfuck movies. I don't even really hate it that much. On paper, it's a great idea - Teen angst, suicide and love wrapped in the presentation of a giant rabbit who tells a kid to do shit. But it's an OK first movie for the director, and nothing that has or ever will redefine cinema in any way.

And Garden State? I just can't be bothered to talk about this any more. If you want me to make you renounce your faith in that movie, PM me and I'll tell you everything wrong with it.
Poor advice.

^ well I enjoyed watching them. That's enough for me to put them on the list. I'm sorry that you don't like them, or that you're too tied up in things they did wrong instead of enjoying the story.

Story?

I already said I wasn't going to discuss them anymore, but let me just say that Garden State's story barely exists.
Poor advice.

Everytime I see a Tom Hanks movie these days I never get lost in the characters he plays. I just say, "Oh, hey, there's Tom Hanks." Very bland if you ask me. And he has what, like, four Oscars? The dude from Splash and Dragnet the Movie? Pleeeaaase.
Poor advice.
#33
The Hustler (best pool film with great drama and superb acting)
Rocky (best underdog film, IMO)
Raging Bull (best biography with excellent acting)
Taxi Driver (a really rough, gritty, realistic movie that's awesome)
Die Hard (an extremely influential and the obvious number 1 action movie ever made)
Enter the Dragon (best fighting based movie)
Scarface (great acting makes up for the raw story IMO)
Godfather (centerpiece of all film making, excels in all categories)
The Matrix (highly influential with a very unique and diverse story at the time being released)

There's my list.

That's the beauty of it, in my opinion. Life doesn't have a story, and that's why the movie is so realistic and powerful.

Jesus, you're missing the point. There are plenty of amazing films that aren't relatively plot driven. Garden State presents a story, but what story's there is so thin that it evaporates. The basic story (Guy going home for mother's funeral and meets girl) is just a vehicle for Zach Braff to present characters who are nothing more than a collection of random "quirks" and bullshit.

A guy who invented silent velcro.
A guy who collects Desert Storm trading cards.
A guy who dresses up as a knight for work.
A girl who has seizures and lies alot.
A guy who shoots flaming arrows into the sky.
An extravegant hamster maze that runs through the entire house.
An adopted black guy from Africa.

These are random quirks. None of this stuff advances the story at all. From a technical aspect, alot of the scenes were shot very well (I love the opening airplane scene), but it was nothing more than an attempt at buying into this recent fad of low key quirky Indie flicks with lifeless acting and random character traits that go nowhere. I can write some right now:

A guy who likes to wear pancakes on his head.
A girl who wears an eyepatch.
A man who makes a living by selling ceramic ducks.
A kid who ends every sentence with, "wowzorz."


Like this film all you want, but is this at least a valid reason as to why Garden State is not a life-changing movie?
Poor advice.

Also win.

- Fear and Loathing....obviously the critics were sober when viewing.
- Someone said A Fistful of Dollars, they win too, but I like A few Dollars More better.
- Night of The Demon
- Stalag 17
- The Devil's Brigade


A bunch of others.
