SOTSG Essential Movie Viewing

for me it's:

1. inglourious basterds
2. pulp fiction
3. the rest.

reservoir dogs gets points for being the first thing i'd ever seen quite like that...but it also gets a big deduction for starting a run of schlock (looking right at you, boondock saints fan).

kill bill was boring to me. once she kills vivica fox i pretty much check out.

jackie brown is ok - i feel like it boggs down a lot, and also i'm not really a fan of Elmore Leonard so that was never going to be a top movie for me.

As for four rooms...i do actually like that movie. Tim Roth makes me laugh.

Jackie Brown also delivered the lulz:

yeah I saw jackie brown for the first time recently as well. Samuel L absolutely kills it, that scene with Chris Tucker is magic.

Goodfellas - Really, really liked it. I'm sure I'll appreciate it more after multiple viewings but I definitely enjoyed it the first time. I'm not sure why I had never seen it before since I've seen Casino multiple times. I liked this a lot more. Probably my favorite Scorcese film that I've seen.

Fargo - Also really enjoyed this one. The Minnesota accents were hilarious and it's just a weird fucking movie, which I love. I'm not sure where I'd put it on my list of favorite Cohen Bros. movies, but I think it's probably in my top 2.

Up next are Pulp Fiction and Full Metal Jacket.


Full Metal Jacket - Didn't like this as much as the other ones. I knew what to expect with Kubrick, but I just couldn't get into it. The first half was really good and then I just fell off with the second half of the movie. I definitely liked A Clockwork Orange better, but I'm going to give this another shot.

Pulp Fiction - Fucking loved this movie. Just awesome. The acting was great, the writing was even better. I didn't know what to expect during the entire movie and the dialogue killed.

Final rankings:
1. Pulp Fiction
2. Fargo
3. Goodfellas
4. Full Metal Jacket

Tough to choose between the first three. I really, really enjoyed all three of them.

Up next I think is the first Godfather. Any other suggestions?

I don't really agree with a lot of this list, but I think this is the type of stuff you're looking for :beatsme: - viewtopic.php?p=177927#p177927

16/20. Missed 4, 10, 14, 17.

Although I didn't know the name of the barbershop, but got it right because of coon chicken, and now I know where the ref comes from.

8/20. I've only seen the movie a couple times on cable and it wasn't really a big deal for me.

This upsets me more than it should.

Jesus Christ, that's high for Groundhog Day and I really like Groundhog Day. It's the 2nd best movie in their top 10 though, so I don't know.

I am not a huge Monty Python fan, seems like you like it more when you are younger, but how can Life of Brian be ranked ahead of the Holy Grail? Am I wrong here.

No. No you are not.


I agree.

I also agree with Kite's original point. There are like 40 movies on that list that no one has ever heard of.
