Lists by fatpie42
(Apologies to those who left comments. It seems I'm not able to make comments myself, even on my own list, because of imdb's new policy that they expect people to register first. I'm not willing to give imdb my card details and it's frustrating to be unable to reply, so I've turned off comments.)
My favourites from movie franchises I am familiar with.
This list will be updated in the future.
This list is missing a few of the presumed classics like "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Blade Runner" because, quick frankly, I found them boring.
Every single one of the films on this list is a film I would personally recommend to sci-fi fans and none of them are there simply because I think they 'ought' to be included.
All films are included in year order.
Hope you all enjoy the list!
I'm slowly working my way backwards through Hitchcock's movies beginning with his last film, "Family Plot" (i.e. reverse chronological order). As I watch each one, I will add it to the list ranking it by comparison to those already entered.
Cinema release dates are for the UK unless stated otherwise.
It's coming to the end of 2011 and naturally there are several films from 2011 that I still haven't seen yet. With that in mind, it seems criminal to relegate many of the films that were released in the UK this year to my "best of 2010" list just because I use the imdb years to date them.
So here, bridging the gap, I include not just my favourite 2011 movies, but also those 2010 movies whose releases in the UK were unfairly delayed.
Naturally this list is my own opinion and is limited to those films I have actually seen.
Specifically listing films that only came out in UK cinemas (or straight-to-DVD) this year. This list is a work in progress and any choices are based on my own subjective taste just like pretty much any list.
Films I would personally recommend from 2011. Films are selected from those assigned the year 2011 on IMDB, not by their release date within any particular country.
Films I would personally recommend from 2010. Films are selected from those assigned the year 2010 on IMDB, not by their release date within any particular country.
The very best movies of 2009.
This list is still in progress. Titles are in current order of preference, but that order may well be subject to revision.
The challenge was to come up with a favourite film for every year going as far back as possible. It's easy for the most recent years, but once I got to 1970 I was absolutely stuck for any film I had seen, never mind one I could recommend.
It takes a while to see all the best movies for a particular year. (Especially going by the imdb years which indicate when a film was first completed rather than when it received a wide release.)
We have finally reached 2012 and I can finally provide a reasonable list for 2010.
Naturally I will add more as I discover them.
With 2010 nearly over there are so many movies still unseen (not least all those wonderful movies released at film festivals which practically no one's seen). As such, this list is going to be a little limited at this stage. Still, these are the best movie's I've seen from 2010 so far....
