Monster big movie meme from HELL! o.O

(lifted from trdsf)

In the "I must be crazy" category: yes, another meme, hidden under an LJ-cut. It is basically a random list of one thousand movies through the history of world cinema, within which is a listing of the ones I have seen. I have had a little fun with it; if you have buttloads of time, check it out. Heh.

Someone please check it out; it took me three hours to compile! o.O

BTW: If anyone on my friends list posts this without an LJ-cut, I will sautee their brains with a dandy sweet and sour sauce.

So, I have seen 278 out of 1001 films on this list, or 27.8% of them. Whew!

Wow, I'm surprised at some of the ones you haven't seen.

"Yankee Doodle Dandy" is pure propaganda, of course, but it's just so much fun watching Cagney be a song and dance man rather than a gangster. I consider it a tragedy that he never got to work with Gene Kelly--he honestly could've kept up with him!

I'm likewise stunned that you haven't seen "Guys and Dolls", which is worth it along for Stubby "Marvin Acme" Kaye's "Sit Down, You're Rocking The Boat". It means suffering through Marlon Brando singing and dancing (better at it than you might think, actually), but Kaye and Sinatra make it more than survivable.

Somewhere, Dr Zhivago is still running... the movie hasn't ended yet! ;)

Uhm. Number 485? You showed that one to me.

Cabaret should be on your "want to see" list. Joel Grey is more than a little disturbing.

Your quote from Amadeus, I assume, is from the second time Salieri uttered that line. ;)

And the Kill Bill movies are the best chop-socky movies ever.


You recommend a birth of a nation!?!

GAAAAH that movie was so boring it put me to sleep! I DO recommend it for people interested in going into the film industry or film history in general.

I'm glad someone else besides me thinks that Citizen Kane is like ... the best fucking movie ever though! =D

I suspect Birth of a Nation gets recommended because Griffith (under the influence of Italy's 1914 film Cabiria, which damn well belongs on this list) singlehandedly summed up everything that was known about film-making to that point and invented serious American dramatic cinema with that one movie. Welles did (or re-did) the same thing with Kane twenty-six years later.

Sweet merciful Jeebus. You did make a film geek outta me, Lou.

Birth of a Nation is an important film because of how influential it was in changing the structure of race relations in the United States. Coupled with President Wilson's quote about how accurate it was, this film sparked the resurgence and newfound overwhelming popularity of the Ku Klux Klan.

cf. the Riefenstahl works "Triumph des Willen" and "Olympiad". Like those two, the craft is what makes it important, not the message.

I still think you're missin' out by not seein' Lord of the Rings. Whether you read the book(s) or not (or hated them or not even), if you are 'any' sort of a sci-fi/fantasy fan, you'll be able to appreciate the movie for, if nothing else, great cinematography. Tolkien has some of the driest writing in the history of mankind. The movies are 'not' dry. They're 'not' popular b/c its the 'in' thing to see either. I truly, honestly believe you're really missing out on at least a decent set of films... *whimpers*

Anywho, I'm sure you've got yer reasons. I know I'll never see Titantic for a good number of reasons, despite lots of folks saying its a 'good' film. I can promise you, with every speck of my very SOUL that Lord of the Rings is NOT like Titantic. LotR are a set worth seein'. I'd bet my big dog dick on that! (And I'm sure you realize thats not somethin' I'd take lightly) *snugs*

Nice list, btw. I wish I could have seen a lot of the older films. I bet theres a good two or three total I might've seen parts of that're older than King Kong (the original, that is, I haven't seen the new one).

Personally, I've avoided LotR because the book (the first one, anyway) was the single most boring work of literature I've ever read.

Heh, well Tolkien is known for incredibly descriptive yet very dry (and often boring) writing. Still, his work helped give the genre a kick in the pants (many years after its inception, but still), and its still one of the most well known.

Also, the book is 'not' the movie, and vice-versa, in any sense of the word. The movie takes the general plot of the trilogy n' turns it into a wonderful set of films. The only bad things I've heard from folks who've seen the films are that they're long (they are) and they didn't follow the books to the letter (which is a damn good thing!).

So I've been told repeatedly. But there's absolutely zero interest on my part. The only part I saw was the battle between Gandalf and the Balrog on TV at a friend's place... and it did nothing for me. I'm the same way about Jurassic Park--it just does absolutely nothing at all for me. I don't say they're bad movies, just that I have no interest in 'em whatsoever.

However, I'll do MST3K: The Movie and Lost Skeleton of Cadavra anytime, anyplace. ;)

Ooh, You've GOT to see 'Fight Club', repeatedly! It's one of my favorate ever films.
After seeing it once, you'll notice a lot of clever little details the second time around, i dunno how many times i've seen it now but i still notice new things. XD

I agree with ya about LOTR, i made the mistake of seeing the first one in the cinema. I was stuck in a room for nearly 3 1/2 hours and bored outta my mind through about 90% of that time. I've not bothered to watch the other films since.

I definately recommend Kill Bill, and also think you should add 'Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels' to your want-to-see list! :)

I admire your patiance putting this together XD
