By BatManHeisenberg - 6/28/2014
I would start the article out with foreplay and a little history lesson or some shit to get you started and warmed up. But guess what?



So yeah. Also, if you disagree, post a list in the comments or whatever. Or don’t. Or propose to Intruder or Gusto. God knows they need it. I don’t give a [frick]. Wow, I am going on longer than I thought I would. Bad news, not going in dry. Might contain some spoilers. Anyway, enough foreplay, here’s the list:

#11: Anchorman


What? An 11? What the hell? That’s cheating! Yes it is, and Yup, I wanted to include it,and I love it. 70’s was so classy. Nothing like hairy chests, the Vietnam War and disco and Queen. But yeah, I love Ron Burgundy, and I love this movie.

#10: Forrest Gump


You might be like, what the hell BatmanHeisenberg. SO GENERIC. So what? The reason for it being so generic is that it deserves it. It’s amazing. Maybe not the Oscar, but nonetheless I love it. Got it?

#9: A Clockwork Orange


Cult classic. Absolutely amazing. I mean, I’d be pretty [frick]ed up to if I was subjected to Nazi videos and rape videos. But yeah, it has some great deep meanings and stuff. I love it a lot.

#8: Reservoir Dogs


Most of it takes place in a warehouse. It’s great. I can tell you personally that an earcutting scene really brightens my mood. Just does. Call me a whackjob, but I disagree. But yeah, great movie.

#7: Inglorious Basterds


I hate Nazis. I think most sane(even insane) people can agree they’re not the best people to go out and get roofied with. Maybe that’s just me. But I just love Tarantino, and I love seeing Hitler turned into a pile of swiss cheese.

#6: Star Wars Trilogy(Original, not the [frick]ed up “prequels”)


Yup, here begins some cheating. I don’t care. It’s amazing. I love all three. Sure, the ewoks weren’t amazing, but hey, it’s still awesome.

#5: Django Unchained


As much as I hate Nazi’s, I hate Confederates around the same. Sure, they didn’t commit a genocide against a race of people, the committed slavery though. And seeing an all star cast like this do it? Awesome. I mean, I love seeing people ripped apart by bullets ina spaghetti western style. Did I mention the awesome cast?

#4: Lord of the Rings Trilogy


Yup. More cheating. Great epic fantasy. I love the epic fantasy fight scenes. The epic dialogue. The landscape and world. And the fact that Gollum looks worse than a crack addict. Jeez. He looks worse than Gusto’s 5th ex-wife.

#3: Terminator 2: Judgement Day


Great movie. Epic score. Great action scenes. Revolutionary special effects. Near perfect all around. Maybe not a perfect time travel logic, but otherwise great. Plus seeing someone decompose instantly by a nuke is always great.

#2: The Dark Knight Trilogy


Amazing. Epic. Absolute perfection in my eyes. I consider it to be the long journey of a single man. Just great. It is sad about his ongoing fight with throat cancer.

#1: TIE: Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption



Yup. A tie. I love both so equally. Shawshank is a capture of the human spirit, and Pulp Fiction is just [frick]ing awesome. I mean, Pulp Fiction is just plain awesome. Amazing movie soundtrack, amazing cast, great dialogue, everything. And lots of ridiculous things happening, like someone getting raped by a hillbilly. And a cameo from Gusto as the gimp, of course. And Shawshank is just a wonderful masterpiece that shows the spirit of the human soul.

That wraps it up. I would make an epic ending, but I don’t feel like it. So just comment, I guess.

Damn, I wrote a long teaser.
MileHighRonin - 6/28/2014, 11:22 PM
Nice list, every one of those films are good. Love that you have clock work orange. That film is great. Have to have an open mind for a film like that. And trilogy's like LotR and Nolan's trilogy should be considered one long film. Like The Godfather, to me it's more than just a sequal. Same as Kill Bill, yes there are 2 volumes but it's one continuous story. They are not making sequels just to make them, they are completing one epic story. I cannot name my favorite 20, would drive myself crazy trying to decide. I bet it took awhile to narrow it down. Great read. I AM GROOT!!!
BatManHeisenberg - 6/28/2014, 11:26 PM
Thanks. I disagree and agree about Kill Bill though. One one hand, yes, it is a continuous story. On the other, Vol. 1 is a stylized action flick while the other is a drama focused film. I prefer the first, but I did enjoy the second. Like the huge fight between the Bride and Bill was supposed to be epic, but all it turned into is dialogue, a couple slashes of the sword and 5 pokes. Meh. I wanted to see something like how she was able to kill 80 some guys and then just slashed her sword, removing the blood off her katana. Just EPIC.
H3LLBLAZER - 6/29/2014, 12:23 AM
@BatManHeisenberg
Great list.

My top 10 would go something like this.

10. Gladiator

8. The Good, the bad and the ugly
7. The Dark Knight
6. There Will Be Blood
5. Taxi Driver
4. Blade Runner
3. Pulp Fiction

You're right about the TDK trilogy being one great long story, but I just couldn't cheat. Here's to you.


BTW, here's your favorite scene in Reservoir Dogs.

So..a too 10 lost comprised of 18 movies huh?
staypuffed - 6/29/2014, 2:30 AM
I'm only slightly ashamed to admit I haven't seen most of these movies (Tarantino really isn't for me). I laughed my butt off when I saw that Ewok, though.
The Dark Knight is my numero uno, now and forever.
Lhornbk - 6/29/2014, 2:48 AM
Ummm.......yeah......a lot of these movies not only are not in my top ten, I don't even think they're that good. Just watched Django Unchained a couple of nights ago, and it, along with most Quentin Tarantino movies, was vastly overrated. As is Shawshank Redemption, as is A Clockwork Orange, as is Reservoir Dogs. I liked Batman Begins and TDK, but TDKR dragged the trilogy down out of my top ten if you're considering it one long movie, which is understandable, although in that trilogy's case I don't agree. I might put TDK in my top ten list by itself. I will agree with Star Wars basically being one long movie (all 6) and LotR too, and can agree with both being in a top ten. Forrest Gump is excellent, but don't know if it's in my top ten or not, as is T2. As for Anchorman it, along with all other Will Ferrell movies (except Elf), would be in my top ten to top twenty worst movies ever list.

Thanks all for your responses!
SniktBub - 6/29/2014, 10:58 AM
But I was under the impression that everyone thought Goyer was a hack...
AC1 - 6/29/2014, 10:59 AM
Nice list, some really great films there and some that I still need to see. Here's mine:

10) The Dark Knight Trilogy
9) No Country For Old Men/ Inside Llewyn Davis
8) Psycho/ Vertigo
7) Se7en/ The Town
6) Star Wars: A New Hope/The Empire Strikes Back
5) Inception
4) Heat
3) Pulp Fiction/ Django Unchained
2) The Place Beyond The Pines
1) Taxi Driver/ Drive

So yeah... I know that's 15 (counting series' and trilogies as one large story) but you know... "tomato/tomato" (that saying doesn't really work as text, does it?)
AC1 - 6/29/2014, 11:56 AM
@codydriscollsrightarm you're not the only one, really enjoyed both Breathless and La Haine, as well as Caché (Hidden), The 400 Blows is pretty good too, also liked the original Django (although I can't remember whether it was subtitled or dubbed, it's been a while), The Raid's pretty good (in a cliche but well executed action movie kind of way), The Battle of Algiers was good in places (although very long, which makes it a bit more difficult with the subtitles). I've also seen Three Colours: White (which was great), and want to see the other two when I get the chance, The Werckmeister Harmonies, Goodbye Lenin, Downfall, and Life is Beautiful were all quite good too. Also aiming to watch the original Oldboy, as well as this French Noir film which I can't remember the name of (which is going to make watching it very difficult to do). I don't mind watching films with subtitles, or foreign films, and often they're great, but overall I do prefer American (and sometimes British) movies; either the more serious, gritty dramas, or the really good blockbusters (where the likes of Empire Strikes Back and TDK Trilogy are the good end of the spectrum, while the likes of Transformers and The Phantom Menace are the bad end).

@SniktBub a lot of people on this site do. I wouldn't go that far though: I think he's quite talented actually, and he's a brilliant "idea guy" - I just think he needs someone else to help him out when he writes. I liked Man of Steel, but I'll admit there were some script issues including some really bad dialogue at times, so I think Goyer needs a co-writer to look over his work and polish it, you know? I mean, look at what he did with Chris and John Nolan - certainly not the work of a hack.
codydriscollsrightarm - 6/29/2014, 12:16 PM
@AC1

Cheers, mate. You just brighten my day a little bit. As for preferring english language movies, there's nothing wrong with that. What bothers me is how some people totally ignore foreign language flicks just because... well, they're too lazy to read.

I like most of the movies you mentioned. Oldboy is fantastic, but I can only watch it once every few years because it'll leave me wrecked. Have you seen "The Man from Nowhere"? It's an awesome action/thriller 'popcorn' south korean flick.

PS: I can't believe I [frick]ing forgot "Seven Samurai". Shame on me. SHAME. ON. ME.
Nick56 - 6/29/2014, 1:25 PM

@AC1- I know. People just assume. Goyer is bad. If you look at his stuff, he's actually good
DeusExSponge - 6/29/2014, 2:08 PM
I won't make a list since it's so hard to choose and make a "top movies" list. But I will say that Terminator 2 will always be one of my favourites!
