Nice list Gamaur. Wow, GWH at one.

Cool to see a Dutch movie on there, Spoorloos at #49, I didn't see it yet, but have that downloaded and should see it soon.

Never heard of The Thin Blue Line, but that seems to be really good, I will see if I can download that somewhere.

Only #31 Master and Commander, I don't see the merit in that, I felt bored throughout.

Cheers stuffp :thumbsup:

Spoorloos is pretty amazing. The ending carries a lot less impact these days but even so, it's still enough to make your stomach turn, especially if you've been fully absorbed into the narrative. This is an absolutely flawless film, filmed with such intelligence even Stanley Kubrick called up the director to ask him how he managed certain things. Whatever you do, do not watch the Spike Lee remake!

The Thin Blue line is probably the best documentary ever made (though I prefer Enron personally), which is an argument made stronger by the fact it helped catch a real criminal. Anything with a Philip Glass soundtrack is guaranteed to be compelling!

Master and Commander is Peter Weir at his best. It's filmed with masterful restraint, David Lean-esque scope and a highly sophisticated artfulness. It's so free of sensationalism it becomes profound through subtleties, characterisation and realism. The dynamic between the Crowe and Bellamy is one of the best on-screen bromances I can think of.

On the whole it's a master-quality bro movie. I can empathise with you getting bored though - it's not for everyone. It's narrative is much more character focused than the title and setting would suggest, and it always opts for understatement over more apparent forms of storytelling.

Post Re: All-Time Top 100 Movie List Thread (Zwackerm and stuffp)
Since I'm going into Force Awakens with "best movie ever" expectations, it seemed like a good idea to revisit this. Only doing a top 50 this time and all at once. I'll also compare their rank to two years ago. The stuff that fell off only did so because I hadn't seen them in awhile and wanted to get in all my new favorites. Nothing personal. I promise it was as hastily put together as last time.

50. Full Metal Jacket (+24)
49. Trading Places (new)
48. Back to the Future (+4)
47. Bad Boys 2 (+8)
46. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (=)
45. Guardians of the Galaxy (new)
44. Star Trek: The Wrath of Kahn (-4)
43. Anchorman (+5)
42. Sunshine (+5)
41. Django Unchained (new)
40. An American Werewolf In London (new)
39. Young Frankenstein (-2)
38. South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut (=)
37. Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade (+12)
36. Animal House (-2)
35. The Princess Bride (-4)
34. Half Baked (-6)
33. The Iron Giant (-6)
32. Jaws (-3)
31. Airplane (-7)
30. Fight Club (-10)
29. Shaun of the Dead (-7)
28. Coming To America (-2)
27. A Clockwork Orange (-2)
26. The Avengers (new)
25. Gladiator (+11)
24. Wall-E (+19)
23. Blazing Saddles (-5)
22. 2001: A Space Oddesey (+1)
21. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (=)
20. Memento (-3)
19. Die Hard (=)
18. Heat (-2)
17. Pulp Fiction (-4)
16. The Raid 2 (new)
15. The Matrix (-1)
14. Aliens (-2)
13. The Shining (-2)
12. Jurassic Park (+18)
11. Raiders of the Lost Ark (+4)
10. Zoolander (-1)
9. Scott Pilgrim vs the World (-2)
8. Terminator 2: Judgement Day (=)
7. The Dark Knight (+3)
6. Star Wars: A New Hope (=)
5. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (-1)
4. Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (-1)
3. Office Space (-1)
2. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (+3)
1. Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (=)

And still the world heavyweight champion.... So there's a little bit of shuffling in the top 15, but nothing too drastic. The Raid 2 and The Avengers are the top debuts because they're both awesome. Jurassic Park, Wall-E and Full Metal Jacket make big jumps, also due to awesomeness. Django replaces Reservior Dogs as my second favorite Tarantino. And John Landis is even better than I previously realized. So there you have it. Your move, Star Wars.

Office Space in the top 3 = AWESOME!

Two Towers at No.1 - is this based on theatrical or the extended edition?

Wow. This seems awfully premature. Seeing them once. Loving them, sure. But then ADDING THEM TO YOUR ALL-TIME LIST?! And at such high spots too! I appreciate your taste being what it is, but don't understand your method here.

Kudos on keeping this list updated, though.

I started some version of this list 15 years ago, and updated it every time I saw a great film. Then I stopped doing that, but I do like to keep some kind of definitive list for myself. And the list is simply fluctuating too, my current #80 might change positions after I see it again.

Now with these new films I've added, I loved the impact they had when I've seen them. Everest I saw twice by the way.

So yeah the positions they're at, it probably is premature to set them in stone like that. Better to look at it, that I think those films are at least better than the films that fell out of my top 100 because of it: I especially made remarks at the bottom of my list, as all of those currently left out are still deserving of it, I just can't make place for them right now.

Yeah same here. Two Towers improves the most with the EE and ROTK the least.

Anyway, #84-87 is the best lot of four in a row.


So, I put in The Last Crusade at #63 after watching it again.

My #84-87 have changed since original posting the list as well.

Those are now at #91-93, and I did just drop out Cliffhanger, it's due for a re-watch, but at the moment I can't put it above any of the other 100.

I will update again sometime this year. 150 would be interesting, but I don't think I have the endurance to pull it off. Maybe back to 100 though...

Also wasn't there supposed to be a new AFI list this year? What happened?

Movies didn't really become good until mid to late 70s, with a few exceptions from amazing directors obviously. So you've only got about 20 years to catch up on!
