Empire Strikes Back

The Dark Knight

Captain America: Civil War

Pulp Fiction

Honourable mentions: Scott Pilgrim, Shawn of the Dead (love a bit of Edgar Wright) 

 

Weirdly my favourite scene in a movie isn't even in my top 20 movies which is the church scene in Kingsman

Theres a difference between the best film ever and your favourite film.

 

I find Bladerunner overlylong, dull and confusing.

 

Yet it's one of my favourite film experiences to watch when half cut late on a Saturday night.

 

You don't watch Bladerunner on a summers Tuesday morning before work.

I would come up with two lists. 

There would be my top 5 films I love them top 5 films I think are good. 

 

The films I love wouldn't be the best cinematically but more the emotion and most are ones I grew up watching ; gremlins,  goonies,  top gun,  etc.

 

Then there's the films that I think are just well made films,  lotr, training day, etc.

This probably changes on a weekly basis;

 

There Will Be Blood 

Die Hard

Kill List

The Dark Knight

The Muppets (2011)

 

Kill List. Amazing. I bought it again the other week after I lent my old one to a mate who never gave it back.

 

Think the ending to that shocked me more than most things I've watched.

I watched it years ago, and completely forgot that film ever existed (although it left strong impression on me).

 

Now just reading it's title here turned some switch inside of me, that made me remember the film, and all the details about it. Before reading your post there is no way I would have remembered name of the film.

Can remember the first time I watched it years ago, and once it finished I just sat still, in silence for ages. Harrowing ending.

I haven't actually mate. The same sort of thing as Kill List?

 

Firing a question back, have you seen Cruel Summer (English film, not an American teen film like it sounds)? Based on a true story . 

 

I wish I hadn't watched it, but glad I did in a way, as in seeing what people's opinions and actions are still like.

Sorry. I'm yet to see either of those.

 

Regarding A Field in England, some said it is great film, and very unique, and others that it is total cr*p.

 

Not sure how seriously I can get film with guy from Mighty Boosh playing one of main characters.

Yeah I can imagine it being a bit strange. Even though I am a huge Boosh fan. Will have to give it a bash in the week.

 

In regard to Cruel Summer, and trying to not give spoilers. It's about a lad with autism. Danny Miller who plays Aaron in Emmerdale plays the main actor (not the autistic character).

Sounds interesting. Guess I will try to see both when I get bit of free time.

 

Btw. Big fan of The Boosh as well, both radio and tv series.

Like I say, it is extremely harrowing. But it's kind of a needed watch in a way, to see how people treat others.
