Under consideration: more Charlie Chaplin Hannibal episode Suits episode Mr. Robot new Batman Arkham game
Using that as the fundament I added every movie that’s also among the very biggest names according to me. And then I ranked to my liking of course. So I call it semi-personal, because I used the validated list a lot to compensate for my lack of acquaintance. Nonetheless I feel like I know just enough right now to make this exact list of the biggest names, which is quite a pop-list. I have seen about half of the movies that are in this list, more new than old ones, but being busy with lists to use for my lists I have seen a lot of other opinions and ranks on which movies are unbelievably huge classics and which are loved by whom and how much... Cause you know, you remember what you like, and I likie those rankies a lottie. So I know what the public and critics find and I have already listed the biggest ones by computation. Besides that you read and hear some and what not, and I’m certainly not an expert, but I know a lot more about movies than the average person: hopefully I’m not too far from both the regular public and the big time film knowers. Though I should admit that all movie knowledge could help to make the list, you can also be bothered by too much of it because you can’t remember how a simpler movie watcher sees it.
What a great story up to now, haha. And so long too. And not quite done either. So, next point would of course be what the hell I was ranking: the biggest names, whaddayamean? Personally I find it hard to explain because it’s more like a feeling: of course you know what I mean by it, but what is it all about? To rank 450 movies in an order you think is all the way right, you want to know exactly what 'biggest names' means, so that you have some reference to make all the choices. And maybe someone else wants to know it too, so let me write it down now. My favorite definition on the internet is this, from dictionary.com: having a widespread public reputation as a leader in a specified field; famous. Exactly: famous, said in a simpler way. But that doesn’t cover the whole term, or so I feel. Miley Cyrus is very famous right now, and therefore a big name, but though she is the most famous, that doesn’t mean she is the biggest name in music right now, most of us will agree that she is far from that. Because the term big name is about more than that: it means it is huge, loved by most or all the people in the freaking world, it is indeed about reputation, being a leader in the field because nobody can go around it: it is too big. The biggest ones just have it all: the prices for their qualities, the public’s admiration, the big money and the mind blowing performance. Referring to the music industry again, where the term 'big name' is commonplace, MJ is the biggest name ever. He is like the definition. Madonna, being the queen of pop, was the biggest one too; right now it is either Katy Perry or Beyoncé, the first is more popular, the second just better. One may say, just take box office data, which is most referred to when you google big names in movies. But then, first of all, they forget about the Academy Awards: they just can not be overlooked when speculating about a movie’s legacy. And what about classics like Citizen Kane, the fact that it is considered as the best movie ever… yeah, why don’t we say, aah, then don’t rank it. That’s Impossible! Right!? That is not even a matter of interpretation, we just can not leave the best one out of the top.
So for the times I was almost as distracted as above, I re-ranked and completed my official, validated list to what I actually think are the Biggest Names.

Listing The Famous Films: Those The World Will REMEMBER: the Biggest Names in Movies
WELCOME! The number of lists that tell us which movies are the best are infinite. IMDb’s Top 250 is a respected one. But how about the Academy Awards? Don’t they tell us which movies are the best? Or does a movie need to be a blockbuster to be the most famous movie and should the wider audience have more to say about it? So, we've got all of these criteria...: this movie is incredibly popular on the internet, and the next is scoring surprisingly high on Metacritic. But now we want the whole picture: which one is the Greatest when we cover all of those!? In the end, more specific, the most magnificent list about this would be the one of The Big Names. The movies we all know to be the hugest, the legends, the ones that we will remember because they are in the halls of fame… you know, The Films that Wrote History!
And for those who would like to know how this list has been built up (because, yes, it is really computed), here it is, the percentages of the final points: 30% International Box Office Gross; 20% IMDb Rating; 13% Academy Awards (6% Wins, 5% Nominations, 2%Best Picture Wins); 8% Views on Wikipedia; 5% Metacritic Rating; 9% Votes on RottenTomatoes, IMDb and ICM; 5% Greatest Movie Lists and Polls; 4% ICheckMovies toplists; 4% Most Memorable Scenes; 2% Best Soundtracks; and a bonus for the series: 3% Other High Grossing Parts; 1% Other Oscars Winning Parts. NB. The Titles below may consist of multiple movies, like trilogies or even the series of James Bond or Star Wars. If so, then the movie in the list is the one that has contributed the most to the franchise's high ranking. We have given the series the advantage that, for each criterion, we’ve used the movie that scores the best on it.
And watch the first 25 of the list in an intense video clip: [link]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qX9dur-gjzk[/link]
big gigantic names are like this. Being a Big Name means everybody knows that it has one of the biggest reputations; because it is so famous and widely discussed, because so many people acclaim it and observe its greatness..
More complicated than Inception, and sublime storytelling
Where to start... that's a good one actually. Wow.. that's this movie. What just happened? Well, I figured it out and it's sublime, plot holeless and of course most of all extraordinarily brilliant. Let's start with thanking the writers (directors) for this movie. It just shows that it IS actually possible to be this brilliant (and although that's not the point, they even did it in 96 minutes). It easily surpasses close to every movie I've ever seen in how original and boundless and genius it was. I can hardly believe this, on one hand, because this didn't really exist before (even my all-time favorite Inception is less brilliant in its idea), but on the other hand I can; it shows me I was right about the fact that movies could be so much better than they are, and have been. I never really tried that hard but I could imagine that it's possible to come up with something as mind-bending, unpredictable and complicated as this, while still being solid. It should be possible, if it's your job, being a writer. So I thought I could, right the most ingenious plot ever (finishing up my first novel now), but this raised the bar so much I'm not sure at all anymore. Needless to say I loved it; it's my fourth favorite now I guess. Not just for the idea. Every sentence in the movie was in some way of huge importance, certainly in the daringly slow and "ordinary" first act (so it can catch you off guard), the atmosphere was unique yet full of possibilities, the look was stylish and intriguing, the actors were great, and their faces nicely cast. The sequence they tell it in... amazing. Enough drama besides the busy plot, great music scores, or realistic silence. All the little (and big) citations, quotes, ideas about time, inevitability, paradoxes and paradoctors, the psychosis. I'm not exaggerating, except if it seems like the perfect movie now. For me, it's close, but most of all it's groundbreaking for mind-bending movies. So if you like those types of movies, and a atmosphere that breathes potential story lines, please watch this, for your own sake. And the sake of the guy at the bar, too..
Painful all the way
This is hard to swallow, so I want to write something. In this episode, whatever good characters are still alive, are being terrorized in a rather hopeless way. Thinking about it I'm surprised John Snow is still alive, as a matter of speech. Further, all the hope we have are the child Arya, and Denaerys, but she's been invulnerable for some time now anyway, together with her mighty dragons. I don't know what to think about it... altogether this is hard to watch, certainly with an ending like this, but on the other hand: where does one find such tragedy on TV or in cinema's in such a huge, compelling production. This is the kind of originality, and unpredictability that I want to see. To send a message to studios and networks who might think this went too far, I want to give it a ten. But I also didn't like it for the characters, as an empathetic person... so no rating it is. From here the only way is up, and that's very true, according to the ratings of what's coming.
Making a Murderer (2015)
He's innocent all right
It deserves a 10 for its intensity, but I didn't like the fact that it was pretty one-sided and thus you couldn't know after e10 if he was guilty or not (and why no court in America believed in him!!). It was one-sided just to make it more intense, as they tried to make entertainment. Nonetheless, this isn't really entertainment anymore, is it? When you think of it as an empathetic human being, this is sickening. I don't blame the makers though, because he's innocent. Why? Let me tell you/myself.
Firstly, he didn't do it the first time either, and he went to jail for that for 12 years (18 minus the 6 for driving that woman of the road). People didn't believe him in 2002, although a lot went wrong in that prosecution as well. Hardly anyone believed in him until the day he got released in 2003. Please understand that people have a natural tendency to believe in authority and how they won't hurt them. That's what we've been learning from childhood. Nobody wants to believe that the police didn't just plant it, but also killed Teresa Halbach... Secondly, Teresa Halbach (TH) had been missing since the day the Avery Bill passed. How f'ing coincidental is that. I don't mean the fact that it happened that same day, but it just shows so well that the Manitowoc police must've felt silly and exposed; and moreover, very scared about their future... Thirdly, he has no motive. Manitowoc clearly did have one to frame him. I never hear anyone talk about that... Fourthly, it would be the dumbest murder of all time: when she's at his house making pictures (sure, kill her now, because no one will suspect you then), while he has a car crusher he leaves the car on his terrain, he asks his moronic cousin to help for some reason, and he burns her body WITH him. Avery isn't smart either, but.. yeah... Fifthly, Bobby Dassey says he saw her RAV4 at 2:30, whereas both Brendan's bus driver and a random propane filler (normally filling up around the same time each day) saw her car near Avery's trailer at 3.30 (leaving, according to propane-guy, although he didn't see who was behind the wheel). Bobby Dassey's alibi is his step dad, who has Bobby as HIS alibi, at 3:00. Sixthly, from the start all authorities point in one direction, and one direction ONLY: Steven Avery. Not too cautious after you falsely put him in jail... Seventhly, Monitowoc County keeps interfering, talks about him as if he's guilty from the beginning ("if we wanted to eliminate him, it would be easier to eliminate him than to frame him" and "in order to prove a guilty man is guilty, it doesn't matter if the key was planted"), Lenk keeps coming into his searched trailer etc. Eightly, Brendans' confession is clearly ridiculous. Ninthly, where is the blood: I haven't heard one logical explanation for how the non-genius Steven exactly did it so cleanly. Tenthly, TH's moved bones, the key, the opened blood sample... There went Manitowoc's evidence.
You're reading the words of someone who, on a personal level, was quite disappointed because he didn't get to know whether Steven was guilty or not . I've been doubting his innocence because the documentary was very biased, I saw the interview with Jodi and I read about Kratz' additional evidence (although his credibility is very low by now). It is healthy to have reasonable doubt, as this documentary has clearly showed, but remember that Avery's story is too weird to just believe it. It's easier to believe he just killed it, than to believe in another theory. If the jury (who started their end discussion with seven votes for innocent, two neutrals and three for guilty) would have said he was innocent in 2005, everybody would have probably believed it . Yu know.
From great to a terrible last 20 minutes
I love Homeland, and I don't agree with people saying it was a boring season. Brody dying was unexpected for me, and such painful things can happen in a series. That's fine, I like it when you're overwhelmed even by fatalities like that. Keeps is unpredictable. However, the ending of it after that, my god. Anyone can die, whatever, it's okay, just like in real life is how I like it, but Carrie is just being stabbed in the back so damn hard by her own people, again, and then she just betrays Brody like nothing happened: shakes the new director's hand, sure, it doesn't matter. He could have easily lived, when he would return home they would have had a love baby in a protected house somewhere (like witness protection), and he was gonna be a hero for most Americans once more. Sure, he says he wants to die... depressed people want to die too sometimes, and he's gone through so much, that I would almost say of course he wants to die at some point. But he's mentally so strong, he could have become relatively happy again, with Carrie. By the way, those CIA bosses (apparently even for their bravest soldiers careless and immoral) instructing to capture Brody, is bearable as well. Just the fact that Carrie, our other great hero, accepts it all, while Javadi was in a fine position, and still able to maybe make it to the top anyway, is not bearable at all. Even if Javadi wasn't perfectly fine without Brody's death, Carrie should have done anything but accept that they kill her lover, her baby's father, and a man who risked everything to be on their side again.
Kaze tachinu (2013)
The end credits song of this movie (i.e. subtitled) really got to me after seeing this very beautiful masterpiece. It is as much about life as I've ever seen in a movie, yet it is very magical in making you feel you are there too, seeing how beautiful life can be. I don't know exactly which feeling it is that the theme song made me feel, but I think it is about the fragile happiness: it is the dreamy joy of a 4-year old, subtly combined with the sadness he dealt with. The movie is quite slow, very polite and the majority of it is only semi-interesting. But the last scene with Caproni made me appreciate it a lot for being able to show me something, not larger-than-life, but exactly as large as life. It made me see the emotional subtlety that was put in the movie all along, the beauty and the fragility, and the moving on... 'Cause, you know, the film's title is mostly a metaphor for the line that follows it, and a quote for the end of life in anime movies: the wind rises;.. and we must try to live. Thank you, Miyazaki, a perfect ending.
Deciphering the chaos: start with the tagline...
and what an order we find from there.
It's really funny to let all these clues come together and let the opening quote come true, with a little help from my fellow-IMDb'ers and the Trivia. 1. The tagline: You can't run from yourself! immediately takes away any doubt about whether it are too different guys or not. Not. For me this made it almost more chaotic, because he then has to be really messed up in the head, have the strongest personality disorder ever, since the majority of the film is about one half of his personality being obsessed with finding the other. But I think the teacher-half wants it to end, and is unconsciously already planning to let both halves meet to let them put an end to it in some way. That could also be the case because his affair isn't that great anymore, and he starts looking (it's no coincidence he watches his own movie) for himself, and right there and then he is already saying no to sex with her. Btw, his girlfriend said that she thought she knew what was going on, so he probably has a history with the disorder, too.
Then one might ask, Why? It seems to be because of his affair, of which he can't let go. He unconsciously splits himself up (in his mind) to morally be able to keep his affair going while also staying with his very pregnant girlfriend (whom he doesn't seem to like that much anymore). This also seemed a bit implausible to me, but that's where the spiders come in. He cannot resist beautiful women, has a huge weakness for them, and most of all of course for the affair woman. The spiders represent that (see Trivia) probably. And he links the spiders to that because of the crazy strip club hotel room we see in the beginning of the film. For me the spiders were the last puzzle piece, filling up that gap of why someone would be able to split himself up (although he's got talent for it) for a simple affair.
Still , it seems to be more logical if they were two persons: he's got two jobs, two houses, two mothers... Well, one house isn't really a house, because they all say "do you live here?!", it looks like it's a hotel room for his affair I guess. The mothers are a bit weird though, 'cause in the beginning her voice mail says she's worried about his room, and when he really meets her, she says he has a nice apartment (that was his mother, right?). She also says he should stop trying to be an actor and he is being recognized at the talent-actor place where he gets the envelope. So in real life he is an actor, not a history teacher, and probably not both (because I don't believe that combination). Moreover, he walks into an empty lecture room...
In the end, in his mind, he kind of sends the actor-half of himself away (he might have planned it like that all the time unconsciously), while the real him actually goes home before ever meeting her. She wanted the teacher half to stay, so in his mind he kills the woman and the actor in a car crash. At home he is confronted with his obsession for women again, finding the key to the spider-strip club thing in the envelope. And it seems like it will start over all again then: an unhappy ending. Then he goes to his girlfriend in the bedroom, and he sees her naked and pregnant sitting on the bed, I know this because that's an image from the first part of the film, and it's absolutely irresistible for him...so what HE sees in his mind: is a gigantic spider, a happy ending indeed...
All I Could ever Dream of in a movie!!!!
Or all I could ever wish for in a movie... however you want it. This is it for me, BY FAR the best piece of motion picture I have experienced. Everything is so original, well thought of, passionate, intense and ****** beautiful! And awesome! This is not just a movie, there's so much more to it here. It is the lifework of plot-Master (capital M) Christopher Nolan and he thought up a story that actually expects something from its watchers. That is also what makes it such a complete film, so complex that you would think you will never find all the farthest corners of this stylish creation. But then I haven't even mentioned Leo DiCaprio, who plays the sort of person he plays best, slightly crazy but intensely great in his deeds. The other actors seem a perfect cast to me too, and play tremendous of course. Last person that HAS to mentioned here is the greatest suspense-score writer I know: Hans Zimmer. Trying not to think of the film itself, I think I'd still say Time and Dream is Collapsing are among the most exciting soundtracks... ever. If you like layers and a non-stop flow of innovative, super original ideas and twists, if you're not the kind of person who thinks creativity can go to far... please, watch this.
