    Forbidden Planet (A watershed Sci-Fi, a take on The Tempest)


    ... thought you were saying the tempest was on your list for a second there



    was going to have to say ... that's the worst movie ever made! ... at least until travolta did battlefield earth

    love your choices ... jacob's ladder should go in the underappreciated thread as well
    Thanks man, don't think I ever won anything in here..

    ANd I agree, Jacob's Ladder prolly deserves to go in the other thread. One of the rare times where the director wants to surprise you at the end, and you're really blindsided by the ending.

    I don't even think it's in the Top 10 of animated movies, honestly. Chicken Run is better if you must have a flick about delusional farm animals.

    Toy Story is a well executed animated story. As formula goes, it does it expertly.

    The Fantastic Mr. Fox is a layered, whimsical, and humourous exploration of human existence. I've probably seen it 15-20 times because when it is on, I have a hard time turning it off. It's as much for me as it is for my kids. Without a doubt it would be one of my desert island movies.

    Sort of like how I feel about Radiohead, there are 2 kinds of people -- those who love Wes Anderson and films and those without taste. It doesn't make you a bad person. But it does tell those who know better what kind of sensibility we are dealing with...

    Based on the combination of quality and replayability:

    1. Goodfellas
    2. Die Hard
    3. Usual Suspects
    4. Requiem for a Dream
    5. Pulp
    6. Se7en
    7. City of God
    8. Memento
    9. Scarface (it's trash, but great trash)
    10. Training Day (personal fave)

    Something tells me AGAW is not talking about the 'brutal' part of the ending but more Ms. Connelly and her "friend."

    JACOB LADDER SPOILER

    My mother died of complications from Parkinsons and Alzheimers; the night she passed she told her caretaker that she was "going upstairs". I saw that movie a year later and was run over by the ending. I was glad I watched at home.
