I love movies about filmmaking in the olden days. This wasn’t so long ago, but I’m calling it “the olden days” anyway because it was still a ways before I was born. I love eccentric people and characters and I love Tim Burton movies. This was a really inspiring movie.
Again, like I said before, I love movies about filmmaking in the olden days. I loved everything about this movie. This movie is beyond perfect. There’s nothing else that needs to be said about it.
The Evil Dead
This isn’t really one of my “favorites” per se, but as a fan of gore films and zombie films (and especially the combination of the two), I feel obligated to list The Evil Dead just for the fact that it really set the tone early on for the rest of the movies of its kind that would come later.
From Dusk Till Dawn
This is kind of an absurd story, but that’s one of the things I like about it. It takes a turn for the worst when you’re not expecting it. All the people who you don’t expect to be bad ass turn out to be bad ass. To be honest, Quentin Tarantino, is the main reason why I like this. He wrote it and he acts in it. There are also vampire zombie things that show up at one point. Also, Tom Savini has a cameo.
Terror of Mechagodzilla
I love monster movies, especially Godzilla movies. This is one of the first I had ever watched. I love it because everything about it is so absurd. There are aliens. There are giant robots. There are ancient sea creature dinosaur things. There is Godzilla. There are cyborgs. Mechagodzilla shoots rainbows…
This monster movie from South Korea was the first monster movie I ever saw. Unlike Terror of Mechagodzilla, The Host is a much more modern monster flick. It also happens to take place in SK’s capital city, Seoul, where one of my best friends is from. The first time I saw this I saw it with this friend, who had seen it when it came out in SK a year before, and that made the experience even better.
This isn’t exactly a monster movie, but it still has the same aspects as a monster movie. It is amazing. Nothing more really needs to be said about it.
Here’s another Tim Burton movie. Along with monster movies I also love science fiction films. This is by far my favorite. I love the aliens in this. Also, Jack Nicholson.
War of the worlds
I love Tom Cruise. I love action movies. I love science fiction movies. I don’t think I need to explain further why I like this movie.
The Matrix trilogy
This movie completely changed my life. I was overwhelmed by this movie. This is the movie that made me want to know how they made all the stuff that happens in movies happen in real life to be able to film them to even make the movie. This was the first science fiction film I ever saw.
The Lord of the Rings trilogy
I generally like fantasy movies too. There is no denying the epicness of the Lord of the Rings films. These movies also changed my life. In middle school my friends and I were all about LOTR, and nothing else. Some of them can still speak and write elvish.
Quentin Tarantino is my favorite director. This is my favorite movie of his. Also, my favorite scene from any movie ever is from this movie. Everything about this movie is awesome.
Hobo With a Shotgun
I’ve never been sure what genre to classify this movie as. It’s kind of a slasher, but not really. It’s kind of a crime film, but not really. It’s just full of gore and imagination and I love it. This was the first real gory movie I ever saw. The first time I watched it I wound up sucking my thumb in a fetal position. This was the first time a movie had ever mindfucked me. I swear to you that’s what happened.
Origin: Spirits of the Past
This one’s an anime. A lot of people don’t seem to like this movie because they say it kind of rips off Miyazaki, and I don’t think they’d be wrong. It kind of does. But I still love this movie anyway. I think the art and the cinematography (digital cinematography? animation cinematography?) is amazing.
