New to the horror genre, and an Alfred Hitchcock fanatic, I am a sucker for suspense and quality. Classics, Cults, B movies; many horror films exist that defined the genre, or were trailblazers which have embedded into the minds of horror fans everywhere. Not all of them will be on this list. But of what I've seen so far, these are my Personal favorites. Films you like won't be here; but I'd like to reach out to the Horror-Fan community I recently joined. Attached to each movie is the reason it's there.
Films that you like will not be here. These are MY choices. If you feel there should be other films, please go make your own list. You can do that. Really.
There are films in cinema which adjusted the way that we think about things in our ordinary life. These films consider our reality, and sometimes our human psyche in a completely different way, to the point that the film itself may even be fooling us until the very end. These films are often bizzare and/or complex, but always innovative. Our eyes were opened to new possibilities in this world or another.
Los Angeles, California. The city ubiquitously associated with film, home to Hollywood and Culver City. Dreamers come from all over the world to join the industry there, and many fail. It has however become a character in of itself, and these are the top ten films to take place in Los Angeles, and most accurately Feel like this grandiose city. They are not ranked against each other, merely against other films which display LA, CA.
NOTE: Films you like will not be here. If you feel others should be, go make your own list. You can do that. Really. No "suggestions" please.
As a filmmaker, Alfred Hitchcock has inspired me personally in many ways, influencing my visual tonality as well as my aesthetic ulterior goals. Even my career goals. And he has done the same for many, many other filmmakers over the years. He changed cinema for the best, and his films should be celebrated always.
Sure, he abandoned logic often--but his films' intentions are established immediately and fulfilled exactly as quickly.
These are, in my opinion, the top ten films created by the Master of Suspense.
In NO particular order, this is a compilation of my personal favorites among the Action genre added to action films I enjoy that were pivotal to the genre. There were many equally important films in the genre but these are my OWN favorites, so if you feel other films should be added, you can actually make a list too. I hope you enjoy my selections.
Romance, a genre unquestionably anchored by redundancy, and which rarely ventures into the definition of remarkable. I'm listing my personally favorite top ten romance films.
Ladies and gentlemen...turn your brains off.
Of all the films in the world, in the history of cinema, here are 70 films I believe encapsulate well the essence of cinema. Each film in its own way pushed the horizons of film's capacity. Many films will be missing; these are my personal selection of classic movies, each of which has closely inspired me as a filmmaker. Thank you for reading. *Note: NO particular order.
In my own personal opinion, an ordered list of the best cinematic illustrations of these symbolic and memorable beings akin to modern Greek mythology. ...Speaking of, when do we get our Wonder Woman film??
Now, I have eclectic tastes, but what I value most in these stories is a sense of humanity and originality. I mostly lean towards the darker, and less fantastical.
Note: Many films you would like to be on here may not be on here. The order may not be the way you want it to be. But with the magic of IMDb, you can go make your own list, so don't have a tantrum.
Thanks for reading!
Better known as "spaghetti" westerns, I prefer to avoid the racial inclination of the genre's title to go ahead and list my personal favorites of this truly unique brand of cinema in which, typically, a wronged man finds vengeance against those that wronged him; be it his family murdered, his throat slit, or his brother hung right on his shoulders.
One is often introduced young to these majestic rubber suits, and accumulate a nostalgic fondness for these absurd, outrageous, poorly acted masterpieces truly unique within the science-fiction genre. The original Gojira was a remarkable Frankenstein-style tale of technological misuse, but his black and white 1954 exploit spawned continued, successful ventures into plenty of eclectic but downright Sharknado-esque delights. Here are my ten favorite, including American love letters.
