Well, I've done albums, I've done video games, now it's time for movies! (reviews will probably be shorter than usual)

Starting off with.....

30.Tarzan
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/4f/Tarzan_%281999_film%29_-_theatrical_poster.jpg

Released In 1999

Disney is a money machine that makes a whole chunk of it's profit on movies that are getting released on a yearly bases now, and one of the best ones to ever come out of the company is definitely Tarzan. Based on the original story of Tarzan, the story is one that has been told many different times many different ways, but this is the only one I've seen (and ever want to see). The characters are great, the story is pretty emotional and funny at the same time, and the music is spectacular. Tarzan as a character is also one of my favorite animated characters in general, but Tantor is a seriously underrated Disney character that needs more recognition.

Favorite character: Tarzan (of course)

Favorite quote:
Tantor: That sounded like Tarzan. It sounded like - like he was in trouble.
Terk: Yeah? Why doesn't he get his new friends to help him? I don't care.
Tantor: Thaaaaat's IT! I've had it with you and your emotional constipation! Tarzan needs us, and we're gonna help him! You got that?
[places Terk on his back]
Tantor: Now pipe down, and hang on tight! We've got a boat to catch.
[Tantor charges off a cliff and into the ocean]
Tantor: I've never felt so alive!
Terk: Good, 'cause I'm gonna kill you!

Favorite scene: Transition from Tarzan as a boy to a man

Favorite song off soundtrack: Strangers Like Me

That'll be that standard dumb internet idea that only positive comments should ever be made, and that being interested in something and disliking or disagree with it are somehow mutually exclusive. It's never made actual sense; people do love to keep falling back on it though.

So you want nobody to voice their opinion unless they are saying how great your list is? No opinions needed at all? You really need to grow up and learn how the internet and for that matter how a forum works. Everyone comments on everything, doesn't matter if that person doesn't like or even give a fuck about what the topic is.

Yes I know how a forum works, you only have explained it a hundred times, and frankly no matter how you slice it it's a waste of time to just attack someones opinion.If you disagree with a thing on the list (or even multiple things on the list), sure tell me, but saying this list is going to suck before it really has started or hating just because you can is truly ridiculous and a true waste of time, you can't convince me any different.Looks like you have a bigger problem, all you seem to care about is how I don't like hate.

When did I say it would suck? I simply stated that I felt like it would be a list full of newer things, and going off the your video game list that would be my reason to think so.

Go ahead, make your list. Show me what you got. But before you start trying to say I'm simply trying to give you hate you should make sure that was I previously said was in fact what you state.

The only time I ever saw the Diznee Tarzan was fourteen years ago, the first time I had sex with my wife. So yeah, I hate that movie.

29.Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/93/Star_Wars_Episode_III_Revenge_of_the_Sith_poster.j pg

Released in 2005

Before you start assuming things, yes, I've watched the original trilogy, and yes I think this is the best Star Wars.When I was younger, I had a Star Wars obsession, but in recent years I've kinda lost most of the interest I had.That said, to me Revenge Of The Sith stands as the best one and one I could probably watch over and over again the most.The cast is of course awesome, and as the final movie (until now) in the Star Wars series it provided a phenomenal dark story of how Darth Vadar became to be.

Favorite character: Anakin

Favorite quote:
Obi-Wan Kenobi: You have allowed this dark lord to twist your mind, until now, until now you've become the very thing you swore to destroy.
Anakin Skywalker: Don't lecture me, Obi-Wan! I see through the lies of the Jedi. I do not fear the dark side as you do. I have brought peace, freedom, justice, and security to my new Empire.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Your new Empire?
Anakin Skywalker: Don't make me kill you.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Anakin, my allegiance is to the Republic, to democracy.
Anakin Skywalker: If you're not with me, then you're my enemy.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: [realizing that Anakin is consumed by evil and there's no reasoning with him anymore] Only a Sith deals in absolutes.
[draws his lightsaber]
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I will do what I must.
Anakin Skywalker: You will try.
[draws his lightsaber and confronts Obi-Wan]

Favorite scene: Final battle with Obi-Wan and Anakin

Favorite song off soundtrack: Enter Lord Vadar

Revenge of the Sith is great. Against the original trilogy? Nah, just doesn't stack up. I could understand rating it higher than 'A New Hope', but 'Empire' and 'Jedi' are different animals entirely.

adamclark52
02-24-2014, 12:22 PM
I always flip-flop on Revenge of the Sith and Return of the Jedi and which is better. I always flip-flop on the Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones too, as to which is the worst.

Empire Strikes Back will always be number one and A New Hope will always be number four.

02-24-2014, 12:33 PM
I recently re-watched the prequel and I have to say that Episode 2 is by far the worst. Blech.

Like, I know Jar Jar is a stupid character but his awfulness doesn't really affect the whole movie. All of Episode 2 just leaves you with a bad taste.

Phantom Menace had a great intro sequence, died for the next hour and had a great final sequence. Attack of the Clones was boring as hell, then had a fantastic final sequence. I'd wanted to see an army of Jedi my whole life.

Phantom Menace had Jar Jar, Attack of the Clones has whiny Anakin. But Phantom Menace had Darth Maul, and Attack of the Clones had Jango Fett.

Both had some good, and a whole lot of bad. I can't decide right now which was the worst movie.

28.The Amazing Spider-Man
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/02/The_Amazing_Spider-Man_theatrical_poster.jpeg

Released In 2012

Before I saw this movie, I had no interest in seeing it whatsoever. I thought it would be impossible to make a good re-boot of Spider Man. But I was offered to go by my friends so I decided I might as well go, and boy was I surprised (I ended up seeing it three times in theaters). This movie is better then all three original Spider Men movies combined (and I love all of them). The movie was very well cast, and Spider Man was more humourus in this one (making it more true to the comics). Truly one of my favorite super hero movies of all-time and I can't wait for the next one.

Favorite character: Peter Parker/Spider-Man

Favorite quote:
Spider-Man: Ahem. You know, in the future, if you're going to steal cars, don't dress like a car thief, man.
Car Thief: Who are you? Are you a cop?
Spider-Man: Really? You seriously think I'm a cop? Cop in a skin-tight red and blue suit?

Favorite scene: Spider-Man catches the car thief

Favorite song off soundtrack: Becoming Spider-Man

I remember having a conversation with a friend of mine well after the 2012 summer movie season had ended about the Dark Knight Rises vs. Avengers debate that was still pretty rampant on the internet and amongst general conversations with friends of mine where I was like "Dude, how does Sony and the rest of the creative team behind Spiderman feel when people are talking about the other 2 comic book movies that came out in regards to what's better?"

Yea I agree with you, though to me Avengers was without a doubt the best super hero movies of that year (The Hobbit was the best of that year though, expect to see both though higher on the list).Never was a big DC fan.

27.I Am Legend
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/df/I_am_legend_teaser.jpg

Released In 2007

I Am Legend is one of those movies that could have been bad, but ended up being an incredible movie.I love post-apocalyptic stuff, and this movie made it a little bit different.It had some pretty suspenseful moments, especially during the scene where Robert first encounters the Darkseekers.To me this is Will Smith's best movie he's been in so far, and probably ever will be.Not much more to say other than it's an awesome movie and if you've never watched it, you should really check it out.

Favorite character: I know Robert is really the only main character in the movie, but I really loved Sam (I have a German Shepherd that looks just like him).

Favorite quote:
Neville: [talking to Anna about Bob Marley] He had this idea. It was kind of a virologist idea. He believed that you could cure racism and hate... literally cure it, by injecting music and love into people's lives. When he was scheduled to perform at a peace rally, a gunman came to his house and shot him down. Two days later he walked out on that stage and sang. When they asked him why - He said, "The people, who were trying to make this world worse... are not taking a day off. How can I? Light up the darkness."

Favorite scene: First encounter with the Darkseekers.

Favorite song off soundtrack: Epilogue

26.Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c9/Harry_Potter_and_the_Goblet_of_Fire_Poster.jpg

Released In 2005

Let me start off just by sayin I am probably the biggest (and possibly only) HP fan on this board, and expect many HP movies to be featured here (more like most of the series). I have read the books (except the last one, have to get back to it), and even though they are better than the movies, that doesn't make the movies any less spectacular. The reason I love Goblet Of Fire so much because it sees the "Official" return of main antagonist Lord Voldemort.The story is great, doesn't stray to far from the book (somethings are left out for time reasons of course), but I usually don't care that much if the movie does something different then the book, as long as it is an entertaining movie. In this case it is.

Favorite character: Hermione/Harry (can't really decide, will be like this for most if not not all the HP inclusions in this list)

Favorite quote:
Ron: Do you think we'll ever just have a quiet year at Hogwarts?
Hermione, Harry: No.
Ron: Yeah, didn't think so. Oh well, what's life without a few dragons?

Favorite scene: Harry's clash with Voldemort

25.Iron Man
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/70/Ironmanposter.JPG

Released In 2008

When Iron Man came out, it took superhero movies to the next level. They couldn't have found a more perfect person for the role than Robert Downey, Jr. This is movie is just by far one of the best superhero movies of all-time. The action scenes were fantastic, the story is a great one that started the Avengers story line, and it is because of this movie that people stay until the end of the credits for every single movie that comes out to see the ending scene.

Favorite character: Tony Stark/Iron Man

Favorite quote:
[last lines]
Tony Stark: There's been speculation that I was involved in the events that occurred on the freeway and the rooftop...
Christine Everheart: I'm sorry, Mr. Stark, but do you honestly expect us to believe that that was a bodyguard in a suit that conveniently appeared, despite the fact that...
Tony Stark: I know that it's confusing. It is one thing to question the official story, and another thing entirely to make wild accusations, or insinuate that I'm a superhero.
Christine Everheart: I never said you were a superhero.
Tony Stark: Didn't?
Christine Everheart: Mmm-mmm.
Tony Stark: Well, good, because that would be outlandish and, uh, fantastic. I'm just not the hero type. Clearly. With this laundry list of character defects, all the mistakes I've made, largely public.
Rhodey: [whispers to Tony] Just stick to the cards, man.
Tony Stark: Yeah, okay.

The Spider-Man movies were well enough done to make me happy that at least a few decent movies starring one of my favorite superheros of all time have been made, but none of them are anywhere near "best in class" movies in the superhero genre. Words like that should be reserved solely for "X-Men: First Class", any of the Christopher Nolan Batman films (in particular, "Dark Knight"), and maybe "The Avengers".

Also, not one of the films mentioned so far would be in my top thirty (or even fifty) of all time, except maybe ESB. However, I'll keep checking back to see if anything worth mentioning pops up. (Don't mean to be condescending, it just seems that our tastes are basically worlds apart.)

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c0/Harry_Potter_and_the_Philosopher%27s_Stone_posters .JPG

Released In 2001

Yes, another HP film already, but as I said most of the series is going to be featured in this list. The one that started it all, Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone did a bang up job of kicking the series off. After reading the book, I was very surprised to find it nearly identical to the movie (which is a good thing). This is a great movie that I've watched countless of times and will continue to watch for a long time.

Iron Man's only problem (and it's really the same problem most Marvel movies have, aside from Thor) is the lack of a compelling villain. Luckily everything else is so good it doesn't matter much.

Also, Iron Man pulled off what I previously thought was impossible and made me enjoy a Gwyneth Paltrow performance.

23.Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/0e/Pirates_of_the_Caribbean_movie.jpg

Released In 2003

I don't care what anybody thinks, I love the Pirates Of The Caribbean series. I do believe the first one is the best though, just because it made me love pirates (that's why Black Flag is so high on my games list). The movie was VERY well cast, Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, and Orlando Bloom in particular did an excellent job playing their characters. Some sweet action, a great story, and a little humor thrown in make this one of my favorite Disney movies.

Favorite character: Jack Sparrow

Favorite quote:
Jack Sparrow: The only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can't do. For instance, you can accept that your father was a pirate and a good man or you can't. But pirate is in your blood, boy, so you'll have to square with that some day. And me, for example, I can let you drown, but I can't bring this ship into Tortuga all by me onesies, savvy? So, can you sail under the command of a pirate, or can you not?

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/6/66/Transformers07.jpg

Released In 2007

There only two things I want to say about this movie: 1) it's a whole two hours and fifteen minutes of non-stop fun, and 2) Bumblebee made me decide that the 1979 Camaro is the coolest car in the world.

Favorite character: Bumblebee

Favorite quote:
Optimus Prime: With the All Spark gone, we cannot return life to our planet. And fate has yielded its reward: a new world to call home. We live among its people now, hiding in plain sight, but watching over them in secret, waiting, protecting. I have witnessed their capacity for courage, and though we are worlds apart, like us, there's more to them than meets the eye. I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message to any surviving Autobots taking refuge among the stars. We are here. We are waiting.

Favorite scene: Bumblebee Vs. Barricade

Missing a comma out is a small grammatical error. Getting someone's name wrong in what is apparently one of your favourite movies series is just dumb. As is not knowing the difference between grammar and spelling.

21.X-Men
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/8c/XMen1poster.jpg

Released In 2000

X-Men have always been my favorite group of superheroes. You got Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, Beast, Iceman, Nightcrawler, and Wolverine (my favorite superhero of all-time), just to name a few of the most awesome ones. The first movie I saw in the series was Last Stand, and I actually didn't watch the first two until after I saw X-Men: First Class. To be honest I love all of the ones I've seen, including X-Men: Origins, but the first one stands out by me as the best. The star of all of them really (except for First Class) is definitely Hugh Jackman, who is the absolute BEST person they could have picked to play Wolverine. With great superhero action and a classic story of good vs. evil, this definitely stands out as one of the best superhero movies for me.

Favorite character: Logan/Wolverine

Favorite quote:
[commenting on the X-Men uniforms]
Wolverine: You actually go outside in these things?
Cyclops: Well, what would you prefer? Yellow spandex?

I really enjoy these movies, though they're a little wide of the mark from the source material.

You'll grow out of loving Wolverine. I don't mean that in a 'you're a kid!' sort of way, just that when you delve deeper into comic books and characters, Wolverine feels a little bland and you get sick of him being in every story.

I thought the first X-Men was fantastic, albeit a little dated now. One could argue that it got the ball rolling on the current trend of comic book movies.

I really liked the second one more. I know nothing about Nightcrawler but I really felt for him in that movie.

The third...yeah.

I liked Wolverine the movie too. But it needed more Deadpool/Ryan Rynolds. Thats as many of the movies I've seen.

The first Wolverine movie.

It was good, and having to follow X-Men 3 didn't hurt it. I didn't even know there was another Wolverine movie until I saw a cut-out of it in a theatre I was in last summer. And I heard First Class was really good but I just never got to it.

I'm no comic book guy either but I really like X-Men. It goes back to that awesome cartoon from the early nineties.

19.Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c0/Harry_Potter_and_the_Chamber_of_Secrets_movie.jpg

Released In 2002

It's time for another HP inclusion on this list, and this time it's Chamber Of Secrets. This one continues in the HP story just like expected, and, just like the first movie, is almost exactly like the book. I like this one more than the first because it's a little darker and has a more mysterious story. Overall great movie, but there's one thing that annoys me though that I recently find out,*Spoiler Alert* (though I doubt this is needed) and it is that when Harry and Ron read the piece of paper they find in Hermione's hand, they look over one important thing that you can see clearly written on the paper when you pause it: The cry of a rooster can kill the Basilisk. Of course you find out in the book (and deleted scenes) that all of Hagrid's rooster were killed, but no one seeing the movie knows that, so for all they know Harry is just deciding not to read the whole thing and that the whole rest of their task could have been a WHOLE LOT EASIER.

2. It came out at the same time as the Lord of the Rings trilogy and while they're very different...c'mon

4. I worked at a book distributer when it was getting popular and I just didn't want to hear about it anymore
5. Daniel Radcliff's facial expressions
6. The idiot President of the book distributer passed on the Canadian Publishing rights to Harry Potter and we were cutting tons of jobs while Harry Potter was getting popular
7. Daniel Radcliff's face
8. I may have been too old when they came out (in my early twenties)
9. They just sucked
10. Daniel Radcliff

All joking aside, Daniel Radcliff was so terrible in the first movie that it killed the whole series for me. I know he was a child but there are good child actors out there. I did like the third one the first time I saw it because I liked the little twists at the end. But when I watched that movie again I already knew the twists so it was lost to me.

Second greatest Disney movie of all-time hands down. So many great characters, Simba, Mufasa, Timon, Pumba, Scar, Rafiki, etc., and an excellent story to back it up. I enjoyed both the others as well, but they are nowhere near as good as this one. A fantastic film that's hard not to enjoy.

Favorite character: Timon/Pumba (if you choose one you almost have to choose the other as well)

Favorite quote:
Adult Simba: I know what I have to do. But going back means I'll have to face my past. I've been running from it for so long.

16.Jurassic Park
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e7/Jurassic_Park_poster.jpg

Released In 1993

When I was in pre-school, dinosaurs were the coolest thing in the world to me. I had tons of books, toys, and DVD's of dinosaurs, and I could name pretty much all of them (and pronounce correctly) at some point. Of course, right before I turned six I saw Return Of The King in theaters and dinos were no longer cool (more on that later). I have in recent years regained at least part of my love for dinosaurs. I can't tell you all of them anymore, and I can hardly pronounce half the ones I do know, but I still think they're cool. This movie right here is an absolute epic movie if your in to dinosaurs even in the slightest. The visual effects are some of the best I've ever seen in a movie, and though not the best in the series IMO, it's a very awesome movie that will always remain a classic.

Favorite character: Dr. Alan Grant (made me want to become an paleontologist when I was a kid)

Favorite quote:
John Hammond: All major theme parks have delays. When they opened Disneyland in 1956, nothing worked!

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/8c/Harry_Potter_and_the_Prisoner_of_Azkaban_poster.pn g

Released In 2004

The next HP movie to make my list (fourth overall) is the third installment, Prisoner Of Azkaban. Not only is this one of the best HP films, it's also wanna my favorite books I've ever read. The movie has overall more darker theme than the previous two, making it all that much more awesome. So many good plot twists in this movie, especially regarding Serious Black (what a freakin' cool name). The dementors are another reason why this movie is extremely awesome as well. This movie was almost perfectly done, except for one very important thing (like the last one): The audience never knows how he escaped! Sure in the book you find out, but if you never read the books then you're left really puzzled (of course that could have been use as an incentive to make movie-goers read the book, but still).

Favorite character: Harry Potter/Hermione

Favorite quote:
Professor Snape: [taps the blank Marauder's Map with his wand] Reveal your secrets.

14.Toy Story
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/13/Toy_Story.jpg

Released In 1995

Toy Story is by no comparison, the best movie Disney has ever made. A great light-hearted story filled with humor, this movie is the best animated movie in history IMO.

Favorite character: Buzz Lightyear

Favorite quote:
Buzz: [Woody, scared, walks backwards and he gets startled by Buzz. Buzz keeps talking to his "mission log"] And according to my navi-computer, the...
Woody: [whispers] SHUT UP! Just shut up, you idiot!
Buzz: Sheriff, this is no time to panic.
Woody: This is a perfect time to panic! I'm lost, Andy is gone, they're gonna move to their new house in two days, and it's all your fault!
Buzz: My... My fault? If you hadn't pushed me out of the window in the first place...
Woody: Oh, yeah? Well, if *you* hadn't shown up with your stupid little cardboard spaceship and taken away everything that was important to me...
Buzz: Don't talk to me about importance! Because of *you*, the future of this entire universe is in jeopardy!
Woody: What? What are you talkin' about?
Buzz: Right now, poised at the edge of the galaxy, Emperor Zurg has been secretly building a weapon with the destructive capacity to annihilate an entire planet! I alone have information that reveals this weapon's only weakness. And *you*, my friend, are responsible for delaying my rendezvous with Star Command!
Woody: [pauses] YOU ARE A *TOY*! You aren't the real Buzz Lightyear! You're - you're an action figure!
[holds hand up to eyes indicating something small]
Woody: You are a child's play thing!
Buzz: You are a sad, strange little man, and you have my pity.
[waves in military fashion]
Buzz: Farewell.
[starts to walk away]
Woody: Oh, yeah? Well, good riddance, ya loony!
[grumbles]
Woody: Rendezvous with Star Command.

Favorite scene: The toys first meet Buzz

I guess a? I've watched and enjoyed movies that some people say are boring, so I guess it just depends on the story. I also like baseball, so there's that.

Also, does Toy Story really count as a Disney film? Disney Animation studios didn't do it, Pixar did. Disney only really handles the marketing and distribution. Yeah they own the company now, but they also own Marvel Studios, and I wouldn't call any of the marvel cinematic Universe "Disney movies".

Yes, THEY are.

And no it's not. They are flawed. The pacing for Two Towers and Return of the King is stilted, Fellowship is a total bore for the first half, the amount of sweeping land shots is just ridiculous, special effects haven't aged all that well and the side-stories become confusing in the second half of the trilogy. I happen to really enjoy the films, but they are flawed.

Please, please remember that because you haven't encountered anyone who doesn't like something doesn't mean they don't exist and that their opinion isn't valid.

Everything in the this paragraph is opposite in my opinion, there's only two VERY minor flaws they have in my opinion (one throughout the course of all three, one just in Return Of The King). I for one don't believe there's ever been a movie to capture fantasy effects better than these films. The pacing is just perfect for me, first half of Fellowship is what makes it a movie that cares about developing a good background for the story that is ahead, sweeping land shots are epic no matter what (I wanna see as much as possible of that New Zealand landscape), and I would hardly consider the side-stories confusing, I was able to understand them almost instantly when I was five so don't know how that logic works.

Don't want to start a war here, but if there's one thing about me you gotta know is that if you bring up Lotr in any way, shape, or form, I'm going to turn it into a hour long discussion either enjoying it with you or trying prove to you that it is a perfect movie series (no matter if I know you'll never agree with me or not).

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a9/Karate_kid.jpg

Released In 1984

I was a very lame dude and saw the remake of this movie first. After I saw it, it proved to be pretty good, but I thought as a karate movie it could have been better. So one day my Uncle let me borrow his Karate Kid and I watched the original for the first time in full, and I was amazed. Some pretty fun fight scenes, an incredible story, and a superb performance from Ralph Macchio and Noriyuki Morita. Not to mention there's a Survivor song on here :rocker:.

Just condense it to one number on the list and then rank the movies individually in that post. Simple as that. That's way better than clogging up a "Top 30 Movies" list with eight movies from the same series. Especially with a shitty movie series like Harry Potter.

The LOTR trilogy is superb. Any denial of that is plain wrong (i.e. a comment on its quality, not on whether or not a particular person enjoys it).

BUT the "triple ending" of ROTK is annoying and unnecessary. The first time I saw it I enjoyed it, but after the second fade-out of three I was like "just fucking end."

These days it is not uncommon for me to watch all three extended versions over the course of a weekend. I say "not uncommon", it is uncommon for me to have a weekend that empty, but when I do decide to watch a LOTR movie, I tend to watch all three.

I agree, as much as I loved Return of the King by the end (of the third "ending") I was like, "just end it already, I can't handle this anymore".

I thought the best ending would've just been after the ring is gone where Frodo and Sam are sitting on a Rock island just before the Eagles get them. It wouldn't have worked because there was still so much story to close out. But that image of them exhausted, beaten but victorious was beautiful.

I agree with you slightly on the ending thing, but there were two story lines that had to come to a close and Peter Jackson wanted the film to end just like the book did. They get tiring, but it's overall not a huge problem for me. I usually will watch all three extended editions three days in a row each month (sometimes I'll won't for like a month or two).

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/2d/Harry_Potter_and_the_Deathly_Hallows_%E2%80%93_Par t_1.jpg

Released In 2010

I know I'm gonna get some hate for not combining both this and part 2 as one, but one is significantly better than the other. The reason I believe this is the lesser of the two is because even though this movie is freakin' awesome, it feels to much like the prelude that it is. I'm glad they split the movies though, meant more could be put into them. This is when a lot of the story of Voldemort and Harry's past is revealed, and the journey of Harry, Ron, and Hermione is a fantastically done one. Overall a very great movie, but with the drawback of being more of an opening act to the main event.

Favorite character: Hermione/Harry

I think people sometimes go out of their way too much to distinguish between the two. Even when people put together a list of what the "best films" are, the main factor is still what that person enjoyed more than the others. Yeah, there are some wild ones that you might consider a "favourite" that's definitely not a "good" film (Such as the "so bad it's good" films), but even "best" films are mainly decided by what that person prefers over others.

The Avengers is the best superhero movie of all-time, I'm declaring that right now. To me it's just THE superhero movie. You have so many great superheroes on here, all played by a phenomenal cast (Robert Downey, Samuel L. Jackson, and Clark Gregg among my personnel favorites). All that plus having stellar action scenes make this a movie I will be watching for a LONG time.

Favorite character: Iron Man/Black Widow (can't decide)

Favorite quote:
Loki: Enough! You are, all of you are beneath me! I am a god, you dull creature, and I will not be bullied by...
[Hulk flattens Loki with repeated smashes into the floor]
The Hulk: Puny god.

Favorite scene: Hulk smashes Loki

Um, First Blood is the first Rambo movie.

Maybe he means the first one that was actually called Rambo?
Bingo.

:lol:, guess your right about that one, not like anything else on the list.Whoosh!

I've only seen the first one though, cause I was told the rest sucked.The second movie was a blockbuster in theaters - it grossed twice as much as the first movie both domestically (~$150M) and worldwide (~$300M). This is presumably based in large part on the success of the first movie, plus the rabid anticipation on the part of movie fans for a sequel to finally be made that featured John Rambo in his true element - the jungles of Vietnam. To me, it was even more exciting than the first movie, where Rambo was more of a victim of circumstance, wheras in the second movie he was a trainer killer who was let out of his cage for a very specific purpose (which was, of course, to kick as much ass and blow as much shit up as humanly possible :D).

EDIT: Speaking of action movies, very few of them would actually make my "Best Movies Evar" list (although I've definitely enjoyed more than my fair share of them over the years), but if your list doesn't include "Predator" and / or "Alien" / "Aliens" then I'm going to reach through the internet and slap the shit out of you. Just so you know.

Wow, I can't wait to read the reactions to that comment.

I honestly didn't care for it much at all, aside from Thors parts. But I just saw it for the first time last month so I had been hearing for over a year how great it was. My expectations were so high. But I can think of five better superhero movies with out having to even...think...about it.

The first two X-Men, the Dark Knight and the Dark Knight Rises (I saw Batman Begins but I don't remember too much) and the first Tim Burton Batman.

Have you not seen "X-Men: First Class"? It's clearly the best of the bunch, if you ask me.

Have you seen the second "Thor" movie? I liked it quite a bit more than the first (although neither would make my list).

Which Wolverine movie are you referring to? The "X-Men Origins" one? I thought it was just OK, but I've heard a lot of folks say the most recent one was much better (again, neither would make my all-time list, but...).

...and finally, I loved Nicholson's take on the Joker in the first Burton version, and Keaton was OK, but the tone of the film was just too cartoonish for me - especially in hindsight now that the Nolan series exists. That's what Batman should be like.

The Avengers is my favorite Marvel movie. The Dark Knight is probably my favorite superhero movie. But I think in terms of pure enjoyment, I would put Kick-Ass ahead of both.

Also, I think the Avengers gets a little of bit a of boost because of the degree of difficulty involved. The fact that it wasn't an incoherent disaster is a miracle in and of itself, and the huge gamble Disney made in building a franchise around it counts for something, I think.

This. It's not my favorite Superhero film, but objectively, it's easily the most impressive. The new X-Men looks to be almost as daring with the ensemble, and with rumors they're going to attempt the Age of Apocalypse, things could reach even more dizzyness heights of epic.

My favorite comic book movie is Dredd, though.

It's amazing it wasn't a totally awful mess.

Just to be clear, I did like "The Avengers" a great deal. It's probably my fifth favorite over the others I've mentioned - I was just having some fun at the OP's expense making the point that it's not the greatest superhero movie of all time as far as I'm concerned. :D

I still have fond memories of the two scenes involving Hulk (the first where he beats Loki like a ragdoll and the second where he roars Stark back to consciousness at the very end of the movie) when I saw "Avengers" in the theater for the first time. I had my then six-year-old son with me, and we and everybody else in the (packed) theater just bust out laughing at those two scenes. Priceless - and impressive that a movie that's 99% based on action could still have moments like that in it as well.

8.School Of Rock
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/11/School_of_Rock_Poster.jpg

Released In 2003

This movie is, in essence, the perfect movie for me. First off you have Jack Black, who brings a great level of humor to the movie, then you have an awesome story that can remind us all what true rock is about (cutting loose and having a great time, and not letting anyone else take control of you), all backed by an awesome classic rock filled soundtrack. Being like seven years old when I watched this movie, I could totally relate to it. It wasn't the kids I was relating to either, it was Dewey, because I felt (and still feel to some degree) that all my friends around me were only interested in pop and hip hop (not attacking these genres in anyway) and needed to be schooled in rock. Considering at that time I was starting to get real big into Kiss and all the glam metal bands, I thought for some reason that all kids my age were exposed to the same music. Just like how Dewey is in the movie, I was literally shocked to find out non of my friends new hardly anything about what I was talking about. I literally took any chance I found to try to push some rock in my friends. Now that I'm done with my little life story that you guys probably could care less about, let me get back to the movie. It's awesome.

Favorite character: Dewey Finn

Favorite quote:
Dewey Finn: Ok, here's the deal. I have a hangover. Who knows what that means?
Frankie: Doesn't that mean you're drunk?
Dewey Finn: No. It means I was drunk yesterday.
Freddy: It means you're an alcoholic.
Dewey Finn: Wrong.
Freddy: You wouldn't come to work with a hangover unless you were an alcoholic. Dude, you got a disease!
Dewey Finn: Hmmm... hmmm... What's your name?
Freddy: Freddy Jones.
Dewey Finn: Ok, Freddy Jones, shut up!

Favorite scene: Dewey give first lesson in rock.

Favorite song off soundtrack: Growing On Me (not featured in movie, Substitute would then be my favorite)

11.The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/Catching-Fire_poster.jpg

Released In 2013

The first Hunger Games was awesome, one of the movies I had to decide to keep off the list. Catching Fire though, was almost 5x better. Incredible acting, loads of action, and filled with suspense all the way through, Catching Fire just barely misses the top ten because of one thing: I wanted more. Add this and the first one to the list of books I have to read as well.

Favorite character: Katniss

Favorite quote:
Haymitch Abernathy: [Stops Katniss from her assault] So it's you and a syringe against the Capitol? See, this is why no one lets you make the plans.

Favorite scene: Katniss ends the games

These movies are decently entertaining, but should never even be close to a top movies list. I could go on and on and on about all the various flaws in both movies.

Seriously, people say Mark Hammill's portrayal was too kid-friendly. a) That's because Warner Bros. put handcuffs on him and honestly, BTAS was already pretty dark as it is, and b) his portrayal of the Joker in Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker has the cuffs taken off. While there are no magic tricks, its still the most sinister performance of the character I've ever seen.

Movies aren't the same though, sure I might like the other films more, but just because I may end up thinking say Predator is better than Harry Potter (HIGHLY UNLIKELY) is not going to make me think HP sucks. Their both two completely different types of movies, so that would make no sense to say HP sucks just because you like Predator more. Now, if you happened to find another movie based on wizards (I don't know a movie other HP that revolves around wizards), then you could say this movie makes HP look like crap.

6.The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b3/The_Hobbit-_An_Unexpected_Journey.jpeg

Released In 2012

Just in case you somehow don't know this, I'm a Tolkien fanboy. Fanboy is an understatement, I'm obsessed. Like, take how much I love glam metal, and multiply it times 20 and you might get close to my love for all things Tolkien. Even though The Hobbit is not as good as LOTR was, it comes about as close as possible. Now, I knew people would be slamming this movie before it came out, because well, haters gonna hate. When I went to see this movie, I was blown away. Three hours of straight up epicness. There are two things people complain about in this movie the most and that is a) too long and b) too different from the book. Ok, first off, if you consider yourself only a very mild fan of Tolkien, than why would you want to have a short movie? People would complain if it was too short anyway, you really can't please everyone. As regards to statement b), IT WAS A FREAKIN' CHILDREN'S BOOK! If they just stuck 100% to the book only, it would not be as good as it is. Whatever is in the book works for the book, but this is a movie, and it needs to use whatever works best for it. I honestly think the movie is better than the book, but that could be just because I waited so long for it to be brought to life. The Hobbit is an awesome movie, it's not like LOTR in the sense that I can actually see the turn off for people, some people just can't give three hours of attention to a movie, and you know what, that's OK.

Favorite character: Gandalf

Favorite quote:
Gandalf: You will have to do without pocket handkerchiefs, and a great many other things, before we reach our journey's end, Bilbo Baggins. You were born to the rolling hills and little rivers of the Shire, but home is now behind you. The world is ahead.

Love your enthusiasm, but seriously. :lol:

Call it what you will, but you also for some reason can't grasp the idea that are actually SOME things that you WILL like FOREVER.

Grasped.

Some things, yes. I doubt if even 10 of these movies would make a similar list in 10 years for you, unless you crawl under that rock I was talking about.

Anyway, as Billy Madison would say, PROCEED.

5.Back To The Future
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/d2/Back_to_the_Future.jpg

Released In 1985

Back To The Future is by far my favorite movie from the 1980's. I loved the whole series, but the first one has to be the best. After I first saw this movie I swore I was going to find a way to time travel. This movie is filled with a fantastic story and loads of great characters, but there's one thing that always got me though. You never find out really what the flux capacitor does or how it works, which was probably the point, but it still to this day leaves me curious. Anyway, a timeless classic that almost everyone has watched, this movie kicks off my top 5.

Favorite character: Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown

Favorite quote:
Marty McFly: Whoa. Wait a minute, Doc. Are you trying to tell me that my mother has got the hots for me?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Precisely.
Marty McFly: Whoa. This is heavy.
Dr. Emmett Brown: There's that word again. "Heavy." Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the Earth's gravitational pull?

Favorite scene: Marty convinces George to ask Lorraine out

Favorite song off soundtrack: Back To The Future Overture

The Hobbit was a 3 hour borefest :hecho:

Easily the worst movie thus far.

Just looked at Evil Dead, not something I'd enjoy. I absolutely HATE anything horror, say what you want, but I do. I know, I'm a wuss.

Dear fucking god, all and any hope for you is lost. Are you a pussy (i'm not 15 and who the fuck says wuss) from bloody things or jump scares? Taking out the horror genre as a whole is a crime.

If nothing else, as you get older and see more stuff, you develop a better understanding of what good movie making and storytelling actually is. At that point, you realise that a bunch of stuff you enjoyed as a kid is actually awful. But until you've gotten that far, you don't have that perspective.

I'm not a horror connoisseur and I think Evil Dead is great, but I think most people would agree that Evil Dead 2 is better.

What? How is pussy sexist? In that sense saying someone is a dick is sexist. Or an asshole since both sexes have one. Your logic hurts my brain.

Both. Glad you think all hope for me is lost, let me try for a moment to give a crap.....

Just a general question: Are people criticizing the list because he's 15, or because he's 15 AND you don't like what he's putting up on there. I think people in general don't like what he's putting on his list, or don't believe they belong on a top 30 list. Which is fine, but if you're going to criticize then you need to criticize the content of the list itself and not the "credentials" of the person compiling it. I think a lot of people here don't agree with the list, but can't actually come up with any reasons why they don't like it. Which is fine, since I think the only argument you need for not liking a movie is simply "I didn't enjoy it", but instead of saying that, you say "Well, the only reason you think this is a good movie is because you're 15 and blah blah blah". It's an easy way to argue against an opinion without actually arguing against the opinion.

Even ravenheart (I know i'm referring to you a lot) has said that the dude is too young and hasn't seen enough movies, but he also posted a list of the movies he would have put on his best of list when he was 15, which included Aliens, Empire Strikes back, Batman, Beetlejuice. etc. To say "You're too young...but here's my list when I was 15." And just by glancing at the list, something tells me a lot of these films are still some of your favourites. This goes for other people too. People criticized him for throwing the Harry Potter films and the Avengers in his list and said it was "because he's too young" but said nothing of the sort when they saw Jurassic Park or First Blood being on there. So which is it? Is it because he's young or because those movies just aren't good? If his age invalidates the Harry Potter films wouldn't they also invalidate Jurassic Park? You can't have it both ways. It's like when people say non-musicians can't give negative criticism about a guitar player but not when they give positive feedback.

I think his list isn't reflective of the fact that he's 15 and more when he was 15. If he was throwing stuff like Aliens and Empire Strikes back on here no one would say anything. People wouldn't be "Oh, you're only 15, so you're not allowed to say you like the same film I do because you're young" I think his age has nothing to do with the fact that he likes Lord of the Rings or the Avengers. Hell, all 3 LOTR films were nominated for Best picture, and one of them won. And the people who vote for those things are old suburban dudes. Awards mean shit, i'm just saying age has nothing to do with it.

TLDR: Fuck you, read it.

Yes, and no.

See, I'm not criticising him for being 15. I'm criticising him for a) watching shit when there's loads of good stuff to watch instead, and in a round-about way I suppose, b) doing a list when you've not really seen enough to make it a sensible thing to do. It's like listening to one Iron Maiden album and declaring your top 5 Iron Maiden songs; it doesn't make sense.

Also, it's not a question of when. Most of the movies on the list of stuff I can remember thinking was great when I was 15 are WAY older than that. Only Independence Day, Toy Story, Jurassic Park, Frighteners (I think) and Fifth Element were current when I was a teenager. I'm not that old, dude ;) He was asking what I expected to see on a 15 year old's list and my point there, because I didn't say he was too young, was your age is irrelevant, just watch better stuff, don't limit yourself to the current teen magazine favourites (although, well done for not including any Twilight movies) - using myself at that age as an example. The fact that there are so many Potter films on the list is indicative of one significant thing more than anything else: he hasn't watched enough stuff and certainly hasn't checked out enough non-current stuff. Then there's the whole stubbornness thing, which admittedly every teenager thinks at the time, over his opinions never changing. When of course everyone on the planet older than 20 knows they do.

Honestly though, my main issue is including crap movies, it's including good movies, and putting crap ones above them. Like putting Jurassic Park 3 above Jurassic Park 1. That's lunacy, whoever you are.

Never have seen a Twilight movie and never plan to, they look like crap. I don't watch movies based on what's popular during this time, I watch movies that I think are or would be cool, and the ones I'm exposed to. It's not like I hate the movies everyone has suggested, it's just I either haven't been exposed to them or I haven't had the chance to watch them.

Even so, you're still going off the assumption that he hasn't seen the films that you like and that's the reason why he hasn't listed them and his instead has chosen the films he's chosen, whether that's due to age, lack of exposure, whatever. Even though he's admitted he hasn't seen a lot of the suggestions that have been made in this thread, it's still a cheap way to argue by criticizing the credentials and not the content. Again, there's nothing wrong with hating his choices, even if you voice it with a simple "That movie sucks" comment. But when you chalk it up to "there's no WAY he can like this movie more than that one. The only possible explanation is that he hasn't seen these other awesome films", it just comes off as a cop out argument, and looks more like defending your own taste rather than criticizing his, even if your taste is not in question. It's the same thing when people were voting for Killswitch Engage and not Gorguts or Deafhaven in the 2013 album voting list, and people, jokingly or seriously, argued that it's because they hadn't heard Gorguts or Deafhaven, and not because they had heard those albums and simply liked the KsE album more. It's the similar thing here.

People have also said that if he watches more movies his top 30 list would definitely change. Which i'm sure is true, but you're working under the assumption that doing so would knock the movies that you deem are not worthy. Who's to say that watching Aliens would change how he feels about Harry Potter and not how he feels about Jurassic Park?

And if you think i'm simply just picking apart what you're saying for the sake of argument, i'll still agree that there's no way to defend liking Jurassic Park 3 over the first movie. Or even Lost world for that matter.
