We'll do this similar to the Top Albums threads .. This time, it will be films ( JB warned me against making this thread, but I think it is more fun than a simple "Your Top 10 Movies" thread - more replay value, right ?? )

Please cut and paste the list so we can keep tabs, and try to write a reason for you selection - why you like the film, if it came around in a particularly poignant period of your life, etc  

I have no idea how this will go - it could tank right off the bat ..


Anyways, I like the rule Union came up with way back when he made the Top Albums Thread:

1) One movie per post .. They should be movies that YOU enjoy, not so much movies that you feel have achieved greatness thru popularity or box office ..

2) A TRF member can only post an movie every 10 picks (or every 5 if it grows stagnant)

3) Please cut and paste as you post

4) Please give a brief reason beneath your pick as to why you're choosing that particular film. That way it'll be a little more than just a huge list thread

For those who have not had the pleasure, here's an example of how this should go:

http://www.therushfo...s-of-the-1980s/

When we are done, if there is still life in this, we can break down each member's picks into individual lists - or even take our list of 500 and post it on another forum ..

And this doesn't necessarily have to reflect the best films of all time in order - it's for fun, and for seeing what other member enjoy, and why ..

ok, let's go

1) 2001: A Space Odyssey ( Lucas )

Epic .. IMHO, the greatest science fiction film ever made .. Stanley Kubrick knocked it out of the park here - great visuals, great pacing ...

1) 2001: A Space Odyssey ( Lucas )


2) Three Colors Trilogy: Blue, White and Red, by Krzysztof Kieslowski. ( Rhyv )

He was excellent to make movies and choose people to work with. He knew the drama, action and love exact turning points at a movie.
These three movies are related with French Revolution, ideals, feelings, Art and whatever makes us human, on a sensitive special mode.
The related colors prevail and their photography composes exactly like a paiting.

Amazing!

Excellent choice!

This film never had an impact on me until last month (after I saw the love it gets here I revisited it).

Spielberg in the 90's...a bit inconsistent but for the most part he was on fire!

I hold back tears every time I watch the last scene when he says, "Tell me I led a good life... tell me I'm a good man." Every time.

7) Jurassic Park (KenJennings)

The most amazing special effects ever seen for its time. A great film adaption of a wonderful book. Teriffic acting, smart pacing, dramatic, funny, smart, heartfelt- just a homerun in every regard. Jurassic Park absolutely belongs near the top of this list.

If I picked a film I'd later on realise I should have picked another one, and later on another one and so on and so on. All my picks would always be wrong. Thus I can't participate.

Honestly, this thread is a futile effort as I could list out a hundred movies rather quickly that I would consider masterpieces and it would be almost impossible to rank them.

And then someone would come along and completely disagree with me.

Yeah exactly.
It's a game. It's not meant to be definitive or defining. I enjoy compiling lists like this because I inevitably come across something I haven't heard or seen or something I have forgotten. I discover or rediscover. That's a plus in my book.

You can add one every ten picks- I would love to see favorites from both you guys!  

I already need to watch 2001- A Space Odyssey with Lucas- I have seen it (and A Clockwork Orange is another one) a few times.  An example of what is supposed to be a great movie and I just don't get it for some reason.  I don't care for it.

Yeah but I'm just explaining why I can't do it, not why anyone else can or can't do it. That's all.

2001 is a little slow getting to the point a little like the Godfather. Both have scenes that drag endlessly.

I don't like either film.
