what is it?

obviously there is no right answer here

but there are wrong ones (example: saying that Transformers is the greatest movie of all time)

for me: Gone With The Wind (1939)

honourable mentions:

  • The Good The Bad And The Ugly
  • Schindler's List
  • The Godfather

Freddy got fingered (not a porn film by the way), Tom Green at his most stupidest and funniest, I've not laughed more at anything ever in my life... stingray and spike seem like the sort of guys who would like this film.

You do realise that Freddy Got Fingered is almost universally considered one of the worst films ever created? I think if I saw it, I'd enjoy it because of how bad it is. I do love terrible, terrible B-Films.

The Godfather Part II.

I agree with @Heisenberg, The Godfather Part II it is. It's a very powerful drama. American History X is also amazing.

Come on guys, you very well know that the Godfather parts 1 and 2 are essentially one film. Can't mention one without the other. God thing they didn't make a third.

The only thing I hate about AMX is how when he is in prison all it takes is a funny wise-cracking black guy to get over his extreme racism. I mean he killed several black men in an incredibly brutal fashion and all takes is a few jokes? Please.

Well that is their opinions, the humorless cunts. It is incredibly stupid but it is funny as fuck, I've never laughed more in my life at a film lol.

Well, the first movie is based on a novel while the second one was written directly to screen. It's not like Kill Bill vol 1 and 2. It's highly recommended to watch the first one before the second but they can be enjoyed separatedly. Both of them are 10/10 for me but I think the second one is slightly better. The part I is a gangster movie, the part II is more like a drama.

I think it's not about the jokes..

SPOILER

Derek became depressed in the prison and slowly he realised how pathetic those nazis are and he had been just like them. The black guy in the prison was funny but this is unimportant. He didn't prejudge Derek and treated him as a person.. Derek was vurnelable in the prison but that guy didn't kick hin but helped him. Derek slowly realised that the laundry guy is a much better person than his so called friends and the way he was thinking for years is ridiculous. It was a slow process.

I think it is necessary to watch the Godfather one and two. They are an arc of the evolution of Michael Corleone from war veteran to cold-hearted mob boss. Without seeing the first, the viewer doesn't get to see mild and somewhat timid Michael transform into an empty albeir powerful man.

Not the best movies of all time probably, I don't have any one single standout, but thought I'd give a mention to a few films I think will go unnoticed here. They have stuck to my memory for different reasons.

Seven Pounds and The Pursuit of Happyness.

Masterful performances from Will Smith in both. Strong and emotional plots, especially Happyness being based on true story.

Requiem for a Dream

Tragic endings give me unhealthy enjoyment

Best documentary: The Bridge

A documentary that hit me hard.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Return of the King is an absolute masterpiece.

Aliens.

The Dark Knight trilogy. 2 is a masterpiece, 3 and 1 are both fantastic.

Terminator 2.

Gladiator.

Saving Private Ryan.

__________

EDIT -

The Matrix.

Jurassic Park.

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

Star Wars Episodes 4, 5 and 6 (in that order as well, A New Hope will always be the best).
