HONORABLE MENTIONS GO TO CASABLANCA, SLEEPER AND E.T.
By the way, Star Wars is rubbish.
From best to worst
Local Hero (1983)
Not Just the greatest comedy of all time. Not just the greatest British film. But the greatest film of all time.
The story is cynical Knox Oil employer Mac Macintyre is sent to Scotland to buy a village to set up an oil refinery. However, Mac is then swept in by the beauty of Scotland.
This film is actually sort of surrealist- for example it includes a mermaid. The film is also a total laugh fest.
This film is just so perfect. Some snobs might be reading this review saying "He thinks this is the greatest film of all time, what low taste. Has he seen a Yasujiro Ozu film? What about Tokyo Story?" Don't get me wrong, I love Tokyo Story, it's just it can be rather tedious at times. And why do we watch movies? To be entertained, and Local Hero is certainly entertaining.
The performances are also great, especially from Burt Lancaster. But most of the credit for this movie has to go to Bill Forsyth, for his brilliant script an direction. The location scouting is also brilliant.
The Mighty Boosh (2003)
This TV show follows the exploits of Jazz-fan Howard Moon, Fashion guru Vince Noir, Gorilla Bollo and Shaman Naboo.
In total there is twenty episodes (eight in the first series, six in the second and third).The first series takes place in zoo, the second in a flat and the third in a shop called Nabootique, which is owned by Naboo. Due to the changing of the setting for every series, the show keeps fresh and entertaining. My personal favourite episodes would be 'Hitcher' (series 1), 'Nannageddon' (series 2) and 'Eels' ( series 3).
This TV show is surreal and is not everyone cup of tea, there is also plenty of rude humour thrown into the mix, which is the reason for its 15 rating here in the UK. To give an example of the surrealism on show, there is a talking and moving ball of bubble gum called Gary in one episode. Apart from this not quite being everyones cup of tea, I can't recommend this show enough. THANK YOU JULIAN BARRET AND NOEL FIELDING FOR CREATING A HIGHLY ORIGINAL AND ENTERTAINING SHOW.
The Time Machine (1960)
A great 60's sci-fi
This is a really good movie. The FX are good especially the makeup for the Morlocks and the lapse photography. I really enjoyed the time travelling sequences,they where really effective and this movie has all-round good effects. The cast is good with Rod Taylor and Alan Young etc. Rod Taylor plays a scientist who goes to the future and finds the Eloi and their paradise but he then finds out that they've stopped growing their intellect and as a man of science, this makes him livid. So he decides to return to his era, he then finds out that the Morlocks have stolen his time machine. This leads him to find out that the Morlocks are breeding the Eloi and are the cannibalistic descendant from Homo Sapien. It's basically a film of discovery and adventure with good suspense. It has good action scenes involving whips and set underground (reminds me of Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom). And the monster design for the Morlock is perfect. The Morlock are definitely one of my favourite movie monsters and the salt vampires in the star trek episode "Where no man has gone before" look a lot like the Morlock. All sci-fi fans will love it. I must add though, the novel is better- the novel deals with the upper classes taking advantage of the lower classes.
The Fourth Greatest Film of All Time
This is what a perfect film is, I admit it dose not have the best plot ever nevertheless that is made up for in every other aspect of the film. The camera shot when Angel Eyes is holding the candle holds amazing likeness to the shot that introduces Frank (Fonda) in Once Upon a Time in The West. Sergio Leone really takes his time to make the characters three dimensional, the amount of character he gives to Blondie, Angel Eyes and Tuco Ramirez is astounding. This film is about two things, the civil war and the three mens search for gold. The weird humour in it is absolutely brilliant. You can tell Leone put some real elbow grease into this movie. The charisma he gives Tuco is just perfect. And I can't believe I have not mentioned the music, it perfectly fits the movie.
better then the rest by a mile
It is better then the other films by a million (not including deathly hallows part 1 which I enjoyed). The basic plot is that Harry,Ron and Hermione have to find the remaining horcruxes, but the final battle is coming near.When Voldemort dies at the end of the film no one cares which is really stupid, considering that Voldemort is the reason that all those people are dead. Also the bond between Harry and Tom Riddle is not explained as well as it is in the book. And the old magic inside Harry given to him by his mother, is not explained well enough for someone who hasn't read the book.Daniel Radcliffe is getting to be a better actor then he was in the dreary fifth movie. This movies biggest problem is that the battle of Hogwarts
is way to long, most of the movie is that battle. And even bigger problem then that is the epilogue which dosen't need to be in the book or the film and is just a piece of cheese.Overall this movie is a solid one.
