Twister, Friday the 13th “2009”(even though it’s corny), Secretariat, Star Wars except Rouge One. I’ll stop there because I could list quite a few. Good movies too.

I thought it was an okay Friday the 13th movie.

They got rid of the typical Friday the 13th sound effects that I love so much.

(Ch ch ch ch.

Ah ah ah ah.)

I much prefer Freddy vs. Jason.

...

And I'm a bigger fan of the Halloween franchise, despite half of the films in the series being horrible.

Too many to mention but 3 standouts for me are Forbidden Planet, The Time Machine, and The Day The Earth Stood Still. (Original versions)

Dr Strangelove ! (favourite movie ever)

I see many other nice films listed, I really liked Black Cat-White Cat, but also Underground from the same director.

Why is that my favorite movie?

  1. This is IMHO truly the most dystopic, most fearful and realistic movie about how humanity (both in literal and virtual meaning) is going to end.
  2. I have a weekness for dystopic movies and movies without a happy ending (sorry folks but life often is everything but fair and I'm sick of denying the true nature of human beings)
  3. People in 1973 knew better than today what we might face in the future. Today, we have never been closer to a scenario like the one depicted in that movie.
  4. ...last but not least...Leigh Taylor-Young... Kiss  Love

Oh, thanks a lump. Now I have to get some Brillo and scrub my brain, ‘cause I don’t think I can ever unsee that.

And my reaction the whole time was pretty much just like The OMG Cat.

Bad, bad, bad. Worse than The Bunnyman. Worse than Waterworld. Worse than Ishtar, if that’s at all possible.

Trading Places,


I really expected this movie to become painfully dated, but it actually holds up well. The racism bit was well tempered. And the elite privilege thing… so nicely done. Plus, the final cherry on top — Jaime Lee Curtis. Yowza, her best eye candy appearance ever! Well, True Lies was a good one for her too.

I have so many favorites. But some I just can’t watch all that often any more… need enough time in between.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail — this is so friggin’ brilliant on so many levels. They were clever and also serendipitous with the writing. I’ve re-watched this movie more than any other.

2001: A Space Odyssey — this can be a bit “fidgety” to handle because of the slow pace… but I still find it the most realistic depiction of humans in space, more so than even the latest work. The models especially… CGI still can’t duplicate it.

Star Wars: A New Hope — yes, the original. It’s still the best. “Empire Strikes Back” is my 2nd favorite. Episodes 1, 2, and 3 are OK, but like a whole different franchise. Lousy acting, too. Episode 8… was enjoyable and impressive, but couldn’t recapture the 1st movie.

Pulp Fiction — I’ve seen almost all of Tarantino’s work. This is still his crowning achievement.

The Shawshank Redemption — one of those movies that you forget about, but when you come back to it you realize just how damned good it is.

The Matrix — the first one. I did enjoy the others for what they offered, but the original was so nicely packaged from start to finish.

One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest — a real amazing classic. Just brilliant, especially Nicholson.

Good Will Hunting — serious psychological drama. So endearing in so many respects, especially with the late Robin Williams.

Lord of the Rings – Trilogy — the whole package was terrific, from start to finish. So entertaining on so many levels. Legendary.

Verrrrry low. I just loved the control panel that was covered in aluminum foil. That’s 2.79 right there… LOL

The Wizard of Oz is my all time favorite. What defines a favorite for me is a movie that I will watch over and over again and not tire of it. This particular movie has been shown annually on TV for many years. I watched it originally in a theater with my mother many years ago. I recall sitting through the movie a second time with Mom just to be sure the wicked witch was really dead. As the years have rolled by, I have shared watching the movie with my children and then their children. Each time I see it, I am reminded of my Mom, who was patient enough to sit through it a second time, and of my family who have enjoyed the movie with me and particularly, its timelesd message that there is no place like home.

If you've never seen it, check out

Groundhog Day (1993)

It's a comedy classic.

 

If you enjoy that, and you like horror movies and mysteries, watch

Happy Death Day (2017)

It's a very good horror movie inspired by Groundhog Day.

 

If you like that, catch the sequel

Happy Death Day 2U (2019)

It's really good for a horror movie sequel.

It has some Back to the Future type sci-fi and adventure elements, but you don't have to see the Back to the Future series to enjoy this sequel.

You should watch the HDD prequel before watching this one, however.
