being a literature enthusiast, this list could change depending on my mood.... actually, I went over movies which I have watched more than once and continued to get that "chills" feeling in the back of my neck...
Those are ten good films. My opinion, admittedly, but less wrong.
The best movie I ever saw (in my opinion) was well i can't decide it's either "Army of Darkness" (hilariously funny!), or"Nell" (touching, sad, action, made me cry!)
Army of Darkness: this movie started off with a very interesting beginning with a man in his house/cottage in the middle of nowhere when he opened a book and some darkness thing escaped .. it got into his hand and so.. (wait a second!!.. if i tell you all about the movie then what would be the point?!..) The whole point of the movie was that he got sent back in time and had to find some book and have a sorcerer send him back.. but the way it was set up it was a "spoof" on all action movies.. I laughed so hard.. i cried!
Nell: This was about a young woman who lived in the woods with her mother.. her twin sister had drowned a long time ago.. a guy delivers their groceries because the mother was raped and so she is afraid to go in town or outside in the daytime at all..t
he mother has a very bad hearing problem and so she talks a different way.. which Nell and May (her dead sister) learned to talk this way too.. the guy delivering the groceries finds her crying and yelling for her mother died.. and he can't understand her
because of how she talks.. people decide they want to do scientific research on her speech for they think that she evolved a language all of her own.. anyways.. I won't say anything else but it's an Awesome movie!
I think that covers most of them... :)
I'd say the Wayne's World movies, but I'm afraid of the comments I'd get :)
(Denise mentioned that she also likes The Shining...)
Another movie in my top ten list is "2001: A Space Odyssey". The visuals, the soundtrack, the sound of only breathing, Hal..."Open the pod bay door please Hal..."
Another one of my personal favorites is "Hairspray". I love it when the underdog gets the prize (speaking generally). Loved Divine.
I just saw "Interview with the Vampire"... Great story.
if you ask me the best movie ever made was Bad Boys...why welll...just because
I think the best movie ever made is Billy Madison, mostly cuz it's funny. I saw it 9 times and I'm still not tired of it. And for anybody who knows me like Ryan O'Toole they know I like :)
