Here's my top 7 Movies
The Thing (John Carpenter): I don't think there's a better horror
movie out there, a revival of the old 50s creature feature, The
Thing proves that movie monsters can be visually defined and don't
have to be nebulous creatures in the shadows.
The Prestige (Chris Nolan): Depending on who you talk to Nolan's
the most overrated or underrated director in the biz. He makes
great movies, but they usually have a lot of exposed threads that
you can unravel them with. The prestige is the neatest of his
films, with a plot twist that reinforces the rest of the narrative.
Plus David Bowie as Tesla!!!
Fight Club (David Fincher): This movie's suffered a lot of over
exposure, and like anything else that's become mainstream through
devoted cult followers (I'm looking at you Monty Python and the
Holy Grail) it's gotten a bit obnoxious. Still it's a damn near
Wall-E (Andrew Stanton): I hate to distill my unabashed love of
Pixar to a single film, but Wall-E is a sweet, touching, deep,
thoughtful, genius animation. Plus it has a moral without being
Citizen Kane (Orson Welles): Oh look at mister big shot! Watches
old movies everybody says is good, but no one watches! The story of
Charles Foster Kane (William Randolph Hearst) is a deep and
interesting character piece. Welles has an astounding level of
charisma. It also doesn't matter what "Rosebud" was!
Groundhog Day (I don't know who directed it)It's the funniest movie
Casablanca (Michael Curtiz): Just watch this movie. If you have I
don't need to tell you why it's great if you haven't,Watch
this scene filmed with real french refugees in 1942.
don't get chills, I don't even know what to tell you.
I also like Sushi and Adventure Time.
Oh! and Mystery Science Theater 3000/Rifftrax.
