mostly good choices but you left out Glengarry Glenn Ross! (and scores more but you can't list EVERY great film. "Crumb" is a great documentary, the original halloween, robocop and darkman are fun, T2, and of course the first three original star wars is killer. Speaking of "killer", a really strange and cool flick is "Killer Klowns from Outer Space". I also LOVE film noire, and most bogart films from crime school to caine mutiny. Also love most Nicholson's films, especially the 70's films like 5 easy pieces and cookoo's nest. I wouls not have shawshank, martin (?) or scarface, unless you're refering to the first and best starring Paul Muni from 1931...classic!

those are just movies that either i or my parents own that i havent seen yet. yeah film noir is the way to go, i've been looking for a copy of the maltese falcon but can't find one. martin is a movie by george a romero, guy who made night of the living dead and stuff. I like the al pacino scarface. I looked for the old one, might pick up a copy in the next few days.

I've only seen these two. I thought The Shawshank Redemption was brilliant and Dr. Strangelove was really good, but comes second for me.

1) The Shawshank Redemtion
2) Dr. Strangelove

If I'm allowed to recommend one of my own favourites in that (very broad) genre to make up the numbers it would have to be "La Vita Bella" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118799/), which would have to cut right through to number one in the list.

These are the only three I've seen but they are all highly recommended!

1) The Shawshank Redemption - This is one of the best films I've ever seen.

2) Memento - Not in the same class as Shawshank Redemption but it's still very very good.

3) American Psycho - Again, not quite as good as Memento but well worth watching.

Pretty much all the others in that list I would like to watch, your parents hve a cool DVD collection!

Shawshank Redemption (i watch it every single time I see it on TV, and by getting TBS, it's on ALOT)

Scarface (I just watched this for the first time a few months back, and enjoyed it, it's a great movie)

American Werewolf in London (this movie kinda creeped me out when I was a kid, so I have a special connection...something tells me that if someone were to watch it for the first time now, they might not care for it)

Maltese Falcon RULES! First and some say best directorial debut by John Huston. I've seen this great film over ten times! Peter Loree is also cool. Speaking of Peter Loree, try his fist film from 1930!...Simply titled: M

TAXI DRIVER, Raging Bull, Godfather 2, King of Comedy, Goodfellas, Casino, Mean Streets, Bronx Tale, Midnight Run, and Deerhunter, ALL great De Niro Films. Also Like all 3 (only 3) James Dean pics, especially:cool: Rebel.

2006-01-15, 01:41 AM

I also like some indie films, like pulp fiction (awsome!) and other tarantino films, like kill bill 1&2, reservoir dogs. Just saw Hostel and thought...eh, not good, but I have liked some films in that arena, such as the original Texas Chainsaw mas., Halloween, nighmare on elm (1st only), and susperia..a strange but memorable little horror classic. Then for real classic horror, you can't go wrong with the Mummy, from 1932, starring Boris Karloff, and the wolfman, starring Lon Chaney Jr. I also like Sci-fi like The invasion of the body snachers from 1956 I believe. The original Star trek is cool, and Get smart for great laughs.:)

I have seen all of these movies but it is unclear to me what you want. I know you want a list of three movies from this set prioritized, but which three? My favorite three from your list? Any three from your list? My favorite, least favorite and what I consider to be the middle of the list I would make from yours? So I will go with my three favorites from your list in my order of preference beginning with my favorite.

1.) Shawshank Redemption
2.) Dr. Strangelove
3.) Memento

american phsycho
scarface
memento

But you should read the book American Psycho, by Bret Easton Ellis, instead.

The Shawshank Redemtion, written by Stephen King, is also an excelent book.

I did the same as Mr Potter, and deleted the ones I haven't seen:

scarface
american phsycho
dr strangelove
das boot
spartacus
deer hunter
citizen kane
deliverance
memento
shawshank redemption

And though I love them all, I'd have to go:

1) Shawshank Redemption
2) Dr Strangelove "You can't fight in here, this is a war room!"
3) Its a close run thing, but I think Deerhunter over Citizen Kane. Just, and only through personal preference.

Looaw.
