I don't remember any of my favorite movies at all. I do remember noting however, that whenever I say to myself "Hey I really adore this movie", that movie had a good score. Maybe there's some kind of connection. Or maybe I just watch movies for the music.

Which is kind of sad.

In 2001 "Star Trek The Motion Picture" brought up a living machine so big that we couldn't fathom it.

Then who could forget HAL in "2001 SO"?

I guess it depends in part on what you mean by "impressive". I would second the vote for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" - but the one I can't get out of my head is "Clockwork Orange". I saw it long after it was released, and did not find it "enjoyable", but it has stuck with me ...

I think that most of Alfred Hitchcock's stuff is very good.

On the other hand, if by "impressive" you mean special effects, then probably none of these suggestions will qualify!

yeah, but "impressive" is to be judged subjectively. what's impressive to you?

So far I think everyone has mentioned English-speaking movies. How about non-English movies? Admittedly I don't normally watch them because I don't like reading the subtitles. I did enjoy "The Visitors" -- a French film. Had to watch it 4 or 5 times in order to catch all the dialog in the subtitles. I just wish there were an English version of that movie.

I'm a fan of Chris Marker's "Sans Soleil". I also just watched "My Dinner with Andre" again -- what a great film that is.

Excerpt from one of my favorites - The Matrix. It's the last line of the movie.


Neo, The One: "I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you, a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries, a world where anything is possible. Where we go from there, is a choice I leave to you."

Read Asimov's short stories under the same name. You'll be even more impressed than some cheesy action knockoff could offer. I, Robot and I am Legend are two good examples of the movie totally ruining a good story.

Yeah! What is up with I Am Legend movies? Didn't those screen writers get it (or even read it)? Though the Will Smith version at least left him a legend - but still....

>what are your most impressive ones?
They're just movies, dude. Your question is about as meaningful as talking about the last time you picked a booger that gave you an epiphany. People will just look at you with confusion and pity.

You are well on the way to becoming my 'goddess' (and not in a <<This user is on your Ignore List.>> way).

^ self-deprecating humor only works if there's a clear distinction between the person and the parody.

in other words: when a creepy internet stalker jokes about being a creepy internet stalker, it's not funny, it's just creepy.
