Ok you had me at hello and that fantastic Cineplex “we love movies trailer”. I agree with every choice so far here. Thanks for subscribing to my blog, I’m subscribing to your as well. BTW my fav movie of my lifetime is Ordinary People. My fav of all time which includes time before my birth (duh) is Citizen Kane.
haven’t watched Leon. All the other movies may get my seal of approval as well. But Shaun of the Dead??? Really??
Shaun of the Dead is a classic,no other movie had managed to take the horror genre and mix it up with English dry humour the way SOTD did,several movies have copied this format since, including Zombieland.
thank you. Now i know 😉
🙂 Hey you dont have to like it,just giving my reasoning behind the choice made by us 🙂 Thanks for your comments 🙂
Pleasure’s all mine.
There are few movies on this list I’ve never seen. I will have to check them out!
Please do,send me your review when you have watched them(good or bad)
Good list. Leon….OMG, what a great movie. Went to see it four days in a row. Have a massive 6ft promo poster that I begged the cinema to give me…
Shaun of the Dead: Good. Hot Fuzz: Sublime.
If you have any recommendations let us know,I reckon that Leon poster could be worth something in a few years,I am jealous 🙂
It’s funny – we go through the lists of stuff in the stores going Nah, Nah, Nah….but there are films that I’ll watch a million times and still watch again. Sleepy Hollow, La Haine, Subway, The Royal Tannenbaums, a lot of Ridley Scott films (but not all 🙂 )….There is a list. A long list.
But you know what I was disappointed in? (on the Shaun of the Dead / Hot Fuzz theme) Paul. Didn’t really rate it. Wanted to, but no go. Maybe it’s just me?
I am impressed with your film highlights,more so because I consider myself a film maniac but I have never seen Sleepy Hollow or Subway,(downloading now)
I really didn’t enjoy Royal Tannenbaums,I found it depressing.
The fact that the American producers had an artist influence in Paul the movie only explains why it doesn’t compare to Hot fuzz and SOD.
If you enjoyed La Haine check ”The Ordeal” out.
Shawshank and Leon are two of my all time favs. Glad you posted Stand by Me, quietly brilliant, a classic for the real movie buff !!
Thank you for your comments 🙂
Rocky and silence of lambs are my favorite
My favourite movie of all time is A Beautiful Mind with Russell Crowe. Other favourites from the top of my head include Old Boy (Japanese), American Beauty, The Godfather and The Life of Brian. Everything on the list which I have watched I have enjoyed also 😉
I do love all of those movies apart from the Godfather,I find the tone and speed of the film far to slow, I can appreciate the acting in it but I cant give it the seal of approval,thanks for the comments and thoughts 🙂
Good selection…Shawshank Redemption remains one of my all time favorite movies!! BTW, thanks for visiting my blog and following!
Great list there, I agree with all of them (apart from the odd two or three I haven’t seen).
