Then we get Darkcloud to collate this list into alphabetical order, post a new thread and then we vote from THAT list!

Darkcloud then tots up the scores and as if by magic, Bob's your uncle...:clueless:

I'm sorry, but Casino is just a crap version of Goodfellas with a less interesting plot, less interesting characters and Sharon Stone. The camera work isn't a patch on Goodfellas, the soundtrack of Goodfellas is at least a squillion times better and Joe Pesci is just going through the motions compared to the oscar winning performance in Goodfellas.

In short, Goodfellas shits all over Casino.


Oh and i'd like to add The Hustler. Absolutely brilliant.

Funkodrom
24-04-2003, 12:43:25
Yeah The Hustler.

Own goal on the jamaican thing.

Debaser
24-04-2003, 12:44:01
The first half of Casino is great, but I admit that the second half does drag, and Sharon Stone is shit. The camera work is great, particularly the opening shot (In a single shot lasting (i think) about 2 and a half minutes , and starting off high over Vegas, the camers swoops down the strip, moves into a casio, pans around for a bit, and ends up focused in on 2 dice that have just been rolled).

It's a different film to Goodfellas, comparable only in that they are both gangster films staring Joe Pesci. I prefer Casio.

Has anyone mentioned Taxi Driver yet?

yes that is a nice shot. But goodfellas also has many nice shots such as the scene where the camera follows ray liotta as he takes his future wife through the restaurant.

errr...and directed by scorcese and starring robert de niro and the entire supporting cast of goodfellas as the other gangsters

I prefer Casio.

The Prisoner of Zenda
Star Wars
Bladerunner

On the Waterfront
Breaking Away

I only saw 3/4's of it the other day, but Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was quite cool so i'll add that, as well as Dirty Harry and True Romance.

24-04-2003, 19:14:01
My favourite films fall into two categories: those I can watch over and over again, and those I'll never watch again because I'm afraid a reprise will spoil the magic.

Watchable a million times:
Casablanca
Total Recall
The Fifth Element
Lawrence of Arabia
The Bridge on the River Kwai (That's Kwai with a K, by the way. :rolleyes: )
Added in edit ... Ran, The Seven Samurai, or pretty much anything by Kurosawa.

Won't re-watch:
Alien
The Go-between
Straw Dogs
Goodfellas
The Long Good Friday
MPatHG

And then there's 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' which falls in the limbo in between, because when I watched it for a second time, it was the 'Special Edition', where 'Special' was obviously used in the same way that people trying to be PC call handicapped/dysfunctional people 'Special'.

Noisy
24-04-2003, 19:17:06
And then there's my third list, which are my favourites in a whole different way ...

Romance
In the Realm of the Senses

MOBIUS
24-04-2003, 20:01:44
OK, another batch that I think haven't been mentioned...

Cyrano de Bergerac (Avec Depardieu)
Delicatessen
Amores Perros
L.A. Confidential
Sixth Sense
Fargo
The Wild Bunch
The Princess Bride
Roseanna's Grave (or For Roseanna for the Americans :rolleyes: )
The Elephant Man
Miller's Crossing

Sean
24-04-2003, 20:39:47
I already said Coens films!

Debaser
24-04-2003, 21:13:09
Films I love, but deep down know are aren't truely great (in fact some are plain shit):

The Warriors,
Buffalo 66,
Clubbed To Death,
Battle Royale,
Virgin Suicides,
Kids,
Heathers,
Pump Up The Volume,
Nightmare On Elm Street,
Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas,
Rumble Fish

King_Ghidra
25-04-2003, 08:09:12
Rumble Fish is a top film and i thought the job they did on Fear & Loathing was excellent, given as it is one of those potentially 'unfilmable' books.

I haven't seen kids, dunno how i've managed to avoid it really. Maybe i'll go buy it, it is pay day after all :beer:

Venom
25-04-2003, 13:09:48
Pump Up the Vloume....:lol:

Guy
25-04-2003, 13:23:19
I can understand that one. Kind of like Breakfast Club, it is by no means great cinema, but nevertheless is always good fun to watch.

Guy
25-04-2003, 13:29:02
Updates to the list:

Blazing Saddles
Dr. Strangelove
Running on Empty

Definitely second Alien, Heathers, and Princess Bride

Brazil
Sunshine Boys
Das Boot


...um, I'll think of more later.

Ok that's not allowed.

Technically you have to intentionally go for a 100-0, you can't cover your embarassment with one. You just have to be honourable about that.

Dead Man (can a film have more disturbing and profound bits than this one?)

Ghost Dog (another J Jarmusch (sp?) gem...this guy is good!)

The Wrath of Khan (say what you will...a great, rollicking adventure!)

The Outlaw Josey Wales (if you like revenge--and I know you do--this will make you spring wood)

Unforgiven (ditto...great one liners!)

The Mission (probably one of the best "contrition" scenes, ever)

Jeremiah Johnson (a tinhorn grows size 10 mountain balls)

The Duellists (a simply epic movie...you MUST SEE THIS! Keitel and Carradine battle for decades over a perceived slight of honor)

A River Runs Through It (Brad Pitt acts in this movie and the simple story it tells is quite convincing and tragic...read the author's books...especially if you like fly fishing and Montana)

True Romance (three or four of the best cameos in the history of film...Walken, Hopper, Oldman, Pitt, "Balki"...hilarious shit with an edge...and Slater is actually palatable)

Jacob's Ladder (very disturbing mind fuck)

Serpico (killer undercover cop drama)

Bullitt (if you want to know what a "real man" is, watch this. Good driving tips too)

Bugsy Malone (really well done gangster-musical with an all kid cast that features cream puffs instead of bullets)

The Deer Hunter (long, sad and scary as hell in places...rats is bad!)

So...many...more....

BigGameHunter
25-04-2003, 19:56:07
Oh, and KG, it may be too late, but "Kids" (though very well done) is very depressing and not a great way to launch a lovely spring weekend.

The nice thing about waiting on nominations list, is generally, someone else will put up what I want on the list.

Humm... greatest 'pop junk' comedies seem to be a bit short. So, add in: Loose Cannons, and Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

For westerns: Silverado, and Quigley Down Under

Miscalleanous:
Deathrace 2000
Escape from New York

For the Freddy Kruegar series, #3 : Dream Warriors was the best out of all the Horror story sequels.

I'm surprised noone mentioned Road Warrior.

I'm also surprised we are short on the Martial Arts family...

And no James Bond? With this crowd? I am truly stunned!

You people have shit for brains, marbles for eyes and piss for blood.

Without working too hard, might I suggest:

Salo
The Three Colours Series
Le Dernier Combat

If maybe more mainstream is needed then what about

Stalingrad (mentioned above)
Cross of Iron
The Man Who Would be King

If less then what about anything by Bunuel or Truffaud?

Or maybe Geoge Wya can't speak them fancy language? Does that make the films worth less than the brainless explosions that many Yanks seem to love?

I like that way of voting, but how do you know that there weren't dls? Do you know them all? What about the really deep cover ones? Are you the management?

Oh...and remember how Dancing with MikeH disturbed the Poly HoF voting with DLs. It could happen here.

Hmm...maybe I could even do it!

No DLs were used only genuine CG posters. That was the point.

I mean a long time ago. I don't beleive it was no DL's. how could you tell?

Easy. If you don't recognise the poster then you don't count their vote.

Because each and every person who voted in that thread is a CG regular? Dancing with MikeH is Bob, for instance.

This was before CG existed. And I think there were DLs. I thought Mike said that there were several by Vincent.

So if you've been using the DL for a while, it can vote?

Exactly. And a lot of them got a lot of votes 'cause they'd been there ages. The whole point was to do it within the rules of the competition. Using DLs would have been easy but Ming would have spotted it very quickly.

I think it was more a protest at the crapness of having a hall of fame in the 1st place...:D

"Sex and Lucia" really is a great film. The best I saw last year- the fact that it has a couple of rampant willies in it is just incidental.

I'm just being a biatch.

But on the voting thing, you don't understand what I'm referring to Snappy. And Mike, I thought you confirmed that Vincent used a bunch of Double Logins?

Umm...Can I worm a few last minute ones onto the nominating list.

The Werner Herzog movies:

Aguirre, the Wrath of God
Fitzcaraldo

And the documentary on the filming of Fitzcaraldo which shows the director is as driven as his characters:

Burden of Dreams

If you aren't familiar with the movies, this should help show what the hoopla is about:

A couple that I liked, but don't really want to agitate onto the nominating list:

Big Wendsday
The Big Blue

GP
29-04-2003, 23:09:09
Oh, one that I would want on the list, but wouldn't actually try to make win would be Beau Jest. Maybe the one from the 30's. And not "Last Remake"

Another that I'm not sure is top ten but is close: Bad Day at Black Rock

Wonder about the inclusion of Road Warrior in preference to Mad Max. But I have not seen RW.

A couple other Aussie-related flicks that I liked but don't see as top tennish.

Strictly Ballroom
The Coca-Cola Kid
