You meant Toy Story 4 right?

#252 1 year ago

Name a better tornado movie? Nope can’t do it. Twister is awesome machine for its time. Now you are getting on crazy Levi level.

#253 1 year ago

This isn’t mission difficult, it’s Mission Impossible (only 5)

Shawshank Redemption
The big Lebowski
Raiders Lost Ark
Sherlock Holmes - Game of Shadows
The Man From Uncle

Sky fall
Star Wars series (IV onwards)
Pirates of Caribbean -all
U571
Payback

#254 1 year ago

and The Departed!

#255 1 year ago

It’s tough to get through, but There Will Be Blood is always my dark horse answer outside the usual greats. Daniel Day Lewis turns in, for my money, the best performance ever playing a character that epitomized those guys that shaped the US at the turn of the century.

#256 1 year ago

My favorite Mixed bag
Most mentioned already

Had to add a couple, went to SEVEN

Goodfellas
The Lost Boys
Blade Runner
The Big Lebowski
Big Trouble in Little China
Raising Arizona
Escape from New York

#257 1 year ago

Unforgiven
Master and Commander
Seabiscuit
Rounders
Princess Mononoke

Best tv show which should be a pin - avatar the last air bender!

In no particular order:

Apocalypse Now
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
Susperia(Argento, not the terrible remake)
Blazing Saddles
Rashoman

#260 1 year ago

Not in order and personal take:

Wizard of Oz
Ghostbusters
Grumpy Old Men
Swing Time (Astaire and Rogers)
Streetwise (The life of Erin Blackwell)

Worst big budget?
Johnny Mnemonic

#269 1 year ago

When Harry Met Sally (For me, every scene is perfect)

Silence of the Lambs (when an older-than-middle-age villain is behind bars, and is still frightening to the viewer, and he's, in a way, the hero of the movie, it's hard to beat a film like this for it's genre)

Godfather 1&2 (I still watch these as 1 long film)

Fargo (black comedy at it's finest)

Star Wars (The attention to detail and so many aspects of how revolutionary the filmmaking was for its time...still holds up)

i just got to say... pinsiders here seem very American-centric. Nobody watches foreign films?? Fellini, Bergman, Bunuel, Kurosawa, Renoir, Truffaut, Miyazaki... there's a whole other world out there besides the Godfather, Star Wars and the Big Lebowski. https://www.imdb.com/list/ls004929793/

Can folks add an additional top 5 for international films?

I rather liked Daniel Day Lewis in there will be blood. But this critic hated it.

Kim Ki-Duk directed the 2003 film Spring, Summer; Fall, Winter...and Spring - Korea
The Third Man is a 1949 British film noir directed by Carol Reed. - England
Breathless is a 1960 crime drama film written and directed by Jean-Luc Godard. - France
Amélie is a 2001 romantic comedy film directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. - France

Okay then:
Perfect Blue (Japan)
The Host (Korea)
The Gods must be Crazy (South Africa / Botswana)
Delicatessen (France)
The Holy Grail (Great Britain)

And if you've never seen Satoshi Kon's Perfect Blue, it's about as close to what an Animated feature would be like if Brian De Palma made one.

#297 1 year ago

I feel like people are coming up
With movies that others don’t know, just to say how have you not seen that. You don’t know movies. Out of 5 movies I get having some that people don’t know, but 5 somewhat obscure movies seems like “look how much more I know than you”.

If there is one thing Pinsiders are good at, it’s veering afar from a topic’s original premise as a thread progresses.

And that's a good thing.

Nobody wants to read 200 posts where everyone lists Citizen Kane, Shawshank, Shindler's List, and Godfather.

Those are knee-jerk answers from people who hate cinema.

I'd rather watch Polyester than slog through Birth Of A Nation, no matter how **groundbreaking** the critics say it is.

Fuck yes. There’s lots of lesser-known films that are EXCELLENT. Indie films, films from other countries, films from decades past. Just because it wasn’t a huge hit in English doesn’t mean it’s not a great movie
