Film student. Massive snob. Slightly unorthodox taste. Here's some basic food groups:
1. The Night of the Hunter (Suspense)
2. The Conversation (Crime, Mystery)
3. The Great Dictator (Comedy, War)
4. Jeremiah Johnson (Adventure, Western, 70s weirdness)
5. Metropolis (Futurism, Sci-Fi)
(I omitted a pre-50s mob flick and a Kubrick. But, it's almost 8am and I haven't slept yet. I don't want any internal, list-making deliberation right now. 2001/FMJ/Clockwork or The Public Enemy could've been on there.)
1. Robert Mitchum
2. Irene Dunne
3. Charlie Chaplin
4. James Cagney
5. Cute chicks: Audrey Hepburn, Merle Oberon, Lillian Gish
1. Being John Malkovich
2. Punch-Drunk Love
4. The Big Lebowski
5. White Men Can't Jump
I love you, Oyster... but, that's bordering on FOUR 90s cult flicks.
I went into Live Free or Die Hard with very low expectations, but that movie was just frickin awesome both from the badass standpoint and the unintentional comedy standpoint.
That villain was possibly one of the worst I've ever seen, but that just made it funny and I always enjoy Bruce Willis cavorting around killing people. The stuff with the fighter jet was just icing on the cake.
- Godfather 1 and 2 (I actually prefer 2)
- The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (all credit to MSE there)
- The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (beautifully done)
- La Haine
- Point Break (how can you hate this movie?)
- Shawshank Redemption
- The Truman Show
Bunch of other stuff. I love movies.
EDIT: I forgot to mention Caddyshack and Spinal Tap, two of my all-time favorite comedies.
