Lists by SeaHorseMafia
Movies with the most beautiful cinematography, art-direction and over-all use of colors and camera composition. Also the most unique looking films. All the movies are good, so there isn't a film I thought looked good, but didn't like. But there isn't something like The Extermintaing Angel, while I think it's one of the best movies ever made, it's nothing special in it's cinematography department. So the movie has to be good, but mainly here's the movie that are visually beautiful. Not beautiful by their story-telling or characters, only visually.
Personal preference, in some kind of order.
Also if their is a film that should be on this list in your opinion, go ahead and suggest, because changes are I haven't seen that film. So no more "Why isn't this and this movie here?" comments, maybe I haven't seen it, or maybe I don't think it's one of the most beautiful movies ever. Remember, this is a subjective list, not a objective. Also theres quite a lot of films in the honorable mentions below.
I Killed My Mother
The Treasure of Sierra Madre
Leaving Las Vegas
The Maltese Falcon
The 400 Blow
La Grande Illusion
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World
Fantasia (I'm not a huge Disney fan, but this is a beautiful film)
12 Years a Slave
Inside Llewyn Davis
After Hours (the Scorsese film)
I will try to watch more films and update this (and other) list(s) more, but it's kind of difficult since school just started and I can only really watch films on weekends. But, I'm trying my best to watch more.
While I will always be true on these lists, I don't pretend to like a film because people have said it's a masterpiece or something. But, I will try to put more "interesting" films on here. Hopefully, films that you haven't seen. And will kinda avoid the "mainstream" films.
And if you think I'm a "hipster" for liking so many "art" films, I will assure you, I'm not a hipster. And I don't get why people hate "art" films. Why is art a bad word nowadays? Art film only means it's deeper than your avarage mainstream action blockbuster. And a maybe a bit slower paced.
I'm sorry but I decide to put some films together, like with Annie Hall and Manhattan and Coppola's '70s movies, I put one film representing a few films. I hope you don't feel angry, but I just can't put Coppola's '70s movies in order, because they are so equally brilliant.
Also I want to give a shoutout to The Cinefiles. It's a Youtube shows where they talk about films. I have been a huge fan for about 2 years by now, and I want you to check them out. They have really influenced me and have introduced me to a lot of different movies. Here's a link for their best show (IMO): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z07597iNqeA
And, I'M SORRY FOR ALL THE SPELLING MISTAKES.
Whiplash (nr. 28)
The Grand Budapest Hotel (nr. 93)
Her (nr. 89)
Wake in Fright (nr. 48)
Frances Ha (nr. 55)
Also, since he did it, check out my amigo's lists:
My other 100 favorite films ever. I love these films as well, but not as much as I do love the first 100. And I prefer my list not to have 2 pages or so. So anyway here you go, some of my other favorites. These are not in order of preference.
Whenever I add a new film, I will put it as number 1 spot.
SORRY FOR ALL THE SPELLING MISTAKES!
I would put something like "Avatar" in here, but people would just hate me and besides their more overrated then actually bad.
Why I made this list is because I love ranting. I love being in that "zone" where I try to out-wit myself, so think of this list as a writing practice . I'm trying to improve my writing (I'm an amateur writer), so I thought ranting angrily about bad films might help. I trying to be funny as well on this list, so if you do like some of these films (God help you) remember that this list is mostly comedic. So don't feel too bad if you masturbated to 1# Cheerleader Camp.
I have decided to expand this list, since I love ranting so much.
Criteria: 2 films minimum, only 2 films if I gave either a 10 or a 9 to both films.
And I know this list mostly has film-noirs and crime films, but those are just so cool!
I'm very ashamed of this list. A lot of these movies are classics, but for some reason I haven't seen them.
Recomend the next movie I should watch. Or recomend more movies to the list.
Btw, Solaris was on this list and I did not watch it fully. I watched around 50 minutes and I found it quite boring, not bad at all, just not for me..
Most of these should be on Youtube..
Silly list, but these are silly movies, enjoy.
I'm not going to rate these, but I'm going to rate the action scenes.
