    I was searching RD for a movie thread, but can't seem to find one (point me to it if I'm wrong). I'm sure plenty of people are looking for new and awesome movies.

    So.. what are your favourite movies? Give reasons as to why your favourite films are worth a watch!

    Here's my list from best to a-little-less-good-but-still-very-good:​
    1. Into The Wild
    2. American Beauty
    3. SLC Punk!
    4. Reservoir Dogs
    5. Donnie Darko
    6. Pulp Fiction
    7. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    8. The Lovely Bones
    11. Little Children
    10. Requiem For A Dream
    11. Goodfellas
    12. The Kids Are All Right
    13. The Chumscrubber
    14. God Bless America
    15. Trainspotting

    Bonus: the Senna movie is one of my favourites as well, but it's more of a documentary so I didn't include it above.

    To sum it up:

    Into The Wild is my favourite movie of all time (until I find a better one), because the beautiful music, story and locations really touched me like nothing else. The atmosphere in American Beauty is all-round fantastic. Although most of you won't have heard of SLC Punk!, it's a funny yet compelling story about two punkers whose lives go terribly wrong which is definitely worth a watch. Reservoir Dogs is bad-ass and funny and the rest, well... everything is worth watching in my opinion.

    Judging from this list, what movies would you suggest I should watch?
     
  2. 1. The Pianist
    2. Leon: The professional
    3. The green mile
    4. Aliens
    5. Alien
    6. District 9
    7. Drive
    8. Heat
    9. The shawshank redemption

  10. Lots of my favourite's have already been said above, but I would add "Inception" to that list. My favourite ever movie though, is "The Evil Dead" from 1981. It's terrible acting and glaring mistakes make it absolutely hilarious, but it's quite scary at the same time!

  11. Have you seen the remake Shane? I found it on a stream site and saved it for another time but the production values and acting were good up till I stopped. I love the evil dead too lol See this? THIS is my BOOMSTICK!
     
  12. I didn't see it yet, but I actually heard that it was quite dissapointing. They will never make as good a movie as the original though ;)

    And here is the full movie of the evil dead if anyone wants to see it.
     
  13. The Naked Gun Trilogy and Airplane.

    I've not seen any of the movies you've listed, except for The Shawshank Redemption and Avatar. Yesterday evening I saw Forrest Gump for the first time, excellent film
     
  17. Best movies i´ve seen are these, (alot of other movies comes close but the standouts are these)

    Green Mile
    Scarface
    Fight Club
    Snatch - probably Brad Pitts best role ever,
    Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,
    Inception
    District 9 (f´n loved the main character)
    Pan´s Labyrinth.
    Wall-E
    Life of Pi

    And almost anything Luc Besson has produced/written.
    Leon
    Fifth Element
    The Big Blue
    Danny The Dog

    Haven´t seen any movie yet on Cinema this year. Lots of crap like the "Pacific Rim" or some other money-film they pump out these days.

    But saw Hobbit and Life of Pi and liked both but Life of Pi was something special for sure.

    Edit: and a small shoutout to mr. Tarantino. Brilliant movies. Kill Bill, Django, Inglorious Basterds.
