Finding a unique film that stands apart from all the rest is no small task, and these are just some of the best ones I've seen in my time as a film fanatic; and some towards the bottom that I didn't particularly care for as much but just need to be seen to believe! Hope you enjoy!
Whether it be shorts, documentaries, made for TV movies, animated features or full length live-action films, I've recalled all the movies throughout my lifetime I managed to either have the privilege or the unfortunate opportunity to watch all in this listing. These are in order from movies I've giving a perfect score to straight down to the worst films I've ever seen, dare I call some of them films. Films I gave 10 stars to start with Inception, films I gave 9 stars to start with Her Alibi, 8 star films start with Mickey and the Bean Stalk, 7 star films start with Meshes in the Afternoon, 6 stars with Match Point, 5 stars with Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla, 4 stars with Bedhead, 3 stars with Hobgoblins, 2 stars with Carpool, and 1 star films start with The Stupids.
Listed in chronological order from memory, wow...I'd seen some seriously horrible films in the theater when I was growing up, lol! My taste got better I swear! :D
It's been a while since I've done a list of recommendations, so this one feels well overdue. My featured recommendation for this list is The Grand Budapest Hotel, the latest gem from Wes Anderson, and most surely a masterpiece at the least! The rest below are a combination of old/new favorites and some films from last year. Enjoy!
Today's featured film is Much Ado About Nothing; Joss Whedon's contemporary spin on Shakespeare is both bold and brilliant! The rest to follow are a slue of more well known films and a bunch of comedy recommendations.
Today's top recommendation is Tokyo! A triple feature anthology by three different director's about the biggest city in the world. It's a unique trip and an engrossing experience to say the least. The rest are a mix of 90s films and recent comedy, action, and drama films. Hope you enjoy!
Today I'm making a ridiculous recommendation; the best video game adaptation of all time "Mortal Kombat"! It's good, it's bad, it's campy, it's worth every second! The rest on here are probably known to most everybody aside from a couple comedies, but it's just one of those days. Hope you enjoy!
My top recommendation for this list is Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, perhaps one of the best movies I've seen in recent memory and doubtfully in need of any introduction. The rest are a slew of comedies and/or bizarre films that will most likely leave some heads a scratchin', but hopefully entertained! Enjoy!
Today's top recommendation is The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Terry Gilliam has a number of memorable films to his credit, but non perhaps as unique and with such a tragic development history as this one. Being Heath Ledgers last film is perhaps what it is best known for, but I recommend it for being a great watch period. Also recommended are a good amount of 90s films as well as some darker and/or more horror themed choices. Hope you enjoy!
My featured recommendation for this list is (500) Days of Summer, perhaps the best film of it's kind. I'd like to say that movies like this are 'taking off'; but five years later I'm inclined to believe that they are whining in popularity and perhaps a retro movement privy to their style will see many more cult fans someday frothing at the mouth for more of their ilk; but for now I'll hold on to hope and recommend this watch just as shamelessly. The rest below in my opinion shine just as bright and reward just as well; enjoy!
My top film recommendation for this list is the Fantastic Mr. Fox; recently added to the criterion collection, and in celebration of the release of Wes Anderson's newest film "The Grand Budapest Hotel" which will grace theaters later on this week. Few films are as beautiful and inspiring as this one! Provided below as well are a couple Woody Allen films, some action/drama flicks, and a few lesser known oddball choices I felt fitting for this round of recommendations! Hope you enjoy!
Top Recommendation for this list is the latest Danny Boyle film "Trance"; while many will argue it is far from his greatest, I consider this to be one of his better films since it breaks away from many of the more oscar friendly outings he's done in recent years in favor of that more hectic and unique art style he built his reputation on. Less of a mix than previous entries follow below for recommendations, but still some solid watches! Hope you enjoy!
My featured film for this list has to go to Wit Stillman's "The Last Days of Disco"; as a virtually unknown director to most film goers, Stillman has only a handful, but very good films no one should miss. The Last Days of Disco is perhaps his best for tackling the oft left behind Disco Movements demise at the hands of the 80s. The rest are still first class recommendations for the day! Hope you enjoy!
My Top Recommendation for this list is 'The Painting'. This film more or less has been completely overlooked for whatever reason and I can't emphasize enough how great a watch it is; also, trying to keep up the variety with the other films listed below; all are recommended as always!
Second list! Kind of filled this with some art-house stuff, but also decided to splice in some less heavy handed stuff, so hopefully this list reflects that better than not. Hope you enjoy! Also threw in 'Ghostbusters' and 'Stripes' as tribute to the late Harold Ramis!
I've decided to start recommending films in small doses, roughly 15 films per list; I'll try and keep a good variety and hopefully anyone who reads this list will find plenty of good watches in their future! Enjoy!
In light of the new year, I figured I'd compile a short list of the ten best movies I'd seen released last year. Surprisingly I haven't seen that many, so I couldn't make this a top twenty as previously intended, but hopefully you can find something worth checking out here!
Also, some of these films may not have been filmed in 2013, but I'm following their U.S release date/theatrical or home video release.
Also also, I feel it worth noting that many of the bigger films released towards the end of 2013 have not made it on my list since I have yet to get around to seeing any of them. In some ways I feel this list incomplete, and I will most likely update it sometime in the near future; but for now these are my top recommendations in order from most to least recommended.
This is a list of the best independent films I've seen so far. Hopefully you manage to find something inspiring, different, or just plain fun to watch on this list! Enjoy!
So after watching about 300 to 400 more movies I've decided to replace my old Top 50 with a new Top 100! These are my favorite films in order from most to least favorite, I feel like it could've been a top 200 with how hard it was to narrow this down!
These are really in no particular order, mainly comprised of over-looked movies that are either worth checking out, or more than definitely demand at least a couple viewings.
