2. The New World (2005)
Day 02 - The most underrated movie

note : Terrence Malick has directed only 4 movies in almost 40 years. This movie is his least appreciated one. It is actually my favorite (I still have to see "Days of heaven" though). To me, it is the movie with the best poetic feeling ever. It is like watching a poem, not with words but with images and sound. Incredible.

4. A Perfect World (1993)
Day 04 - A movie that makes me sad

note : I saw this movie at the movie theater when it came out. I was like 15. The end of this movie was so sad that I really wanted to cry. It was something that I never experienced before when watching a movie.

7. The Usual Suspects (1995)
Day 07 - The most surprising plot twist or ending

note : I know, 15 years later, the twist seems little bit lame but when I saw it the first time at the movie theater, it really blew my mind.

8. Clerks (1994)
Day 08 - A movie that I’ve seen countless times

note : Again, I saw this one when it came out at the movie theater. I got hooked right away. A year later, I bought the VHS for my sister and then for the 6 following years, I would systematically show it to everyone I would meet. I saw it like 50 times.

9. Pulp Fiction (1994)
Day 09 - A movie with the best soundtrack

2nd choice :
- Paris, Texas

11. Avatar (2009)
Day 11 - A movie that changed my opinion about something

note : After seeing Avatar, I realized that 3D movies could be great and not a complete swindle (I was inpired by Prudence for this one. Thanks!)

12. Taxi (1998)
Day 12 - A movie that I hate

note : I found this one was so bad ! I remember when it came out in France. It was a huge success and everybody went to see this movie. Everybody except me. My gut was telling me it was big pile of horses..t. So I didn't go. For months, I had to hear all the comments about this movie ("This is great !" "You have to see it !",...) . After 6 months, a friend convinced me and I finally saw it on video (no DVD back then...). I was completely stoned out of mind which didn't help. After 10 minutes, there was the first real dialog and it sounded so bad , I thought it was fake and I thought someone was comploting against me... Real panic and a complete tragedy ! Anyway it was really really bad... and they made 3 sequels !!!

13. Deep Impact (1998)
Day 13 - A movie that is a guilty pleasure

note : I'm not a big fan of disaster movies (2010, Volcano, Dante's peak, Armageddon...) but I definitely have a weak spot for this one !

People who added this item 20  Average listal rating (12 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 6.8 
14. La Ballade des Dalton (1978)
Day 14 - A movie that no one would expect me to love

note : When I was a kid, I used to watch it all the time. Even today, I believe it is one of the best animated movie ever.

15. The Tree Of Life (2011)
Day 15 - A character who I can relate to the most

note : I definitely can relate to Jack, portrayed by Hunter McCracken. Like him, my folks were arguing all the time and I felt miserable about it all my childhood. Like him, my small brother used to be my best friend and like him, in spite of this beautiful relationship, I used to really beat him up on a daily basis because , I guess, I was rather messed up inside. Anyway, while watching this flick, I got really emotional because of the similarities between him and me.

16. Seven (1995)
Day 16 - A movie that I used to love but now hate

note : First of all, I don't hate this movie ! I couldn't find a movie I first loved ... and then hate! This one is the closest thing. The first time I saw it, I was completely blown away. I thought it was great. But the second time, I could step back and pay more attention to the small details. Eventually, I found the story quite shallow.

17. V for Vendetta (2005)
Day 17 - A movie that disappointed me the most

note : It took me like 3 or 4 years to watch this movie and it was really high on my "to-watch" movie list. It was supposed to be great and I was expecting so much !! At the end, a nice movie with very nice visuals but the story was not compelling at all.

note : I didn't read the book though.

20. Raging Bull (1980)
Day 20 - Favorite movie from my favorite actor/actress

note : Obviously, De Niro is my favorite actor and this is his best movie.

johanlefourbe's rating:

People who added this item 3847  Average listal rating (2630 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.9 
21. The Bourne Identity (2002)
Day 21 - Favorite action movie

note : I think this one is better than part 2 and 3 because, here, Jason bourne is a vulnerable and insecure hero. Something really refreshing. In part 2 and 3, he just becomes another invicible and omnipotent action-hero that I have seen already 1000 times.

2nd choice :
- Terminator 2: Judgment Day

24. Prime (2005)
Day 24 - That one awesome movie idea that still hasn’t been done yet

note : It deals about a yound man (22 years old). He is a stoner and a party animal. One day, he meets a gorgeous woman (33 years old) married with 2 children. They start this impossible relationship and they even start to live together. In spite of a happy ending, their relationship get more and more chaotic but they still stick together...

25. Everything You Always Wanted to Know About S... (1972)
Day 25 - The most hilarious movie you’ve ever seen

note: I'm not sure it is the most hilarious movie I have ever seen but it is definitely the most hilarious title ever and it has some hilarious moments (for ex., the scene underneath)

26. Eyes Wide Shut (1999)
Day 26 - A movie that I love but everyone else hates

note: Again, nobody really hates this movie... (I guess?). But, it is definitely the least loved movie directed by Kubrick. I think it is one of his best.

Glad to know someone else thinks Eyes Wide Shut is one of Kubrick's best films.
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Oct 2 23:22
Fantastic choices here. However, I found it was quite the opposite for me with Seven. I prefered it much more the second time.
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jul 8 12:26
Wow!Quite Shallow Seven?You must rewatch it.
V for vendetta dissapoint you the most?Hmmm!
AND FINALLY 9 TO RED DUST??????????
Something going wrong here!
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jul 8 12:39
@propelas, there is nothing wrong here... And I don't need to rewatch Seven, I have it twice in the movie theater and then a couple of times later on. It is just a matter of taste, you know...
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jul 8 12:50
Sure i know!Everything is weird we can call it "taste".But i wonder if red dust takes 9 some others movies like
Seventh Seal,Stalker, Citizen Kane,2001,City Lights how much
they take?10000?.Anyway i disagree with many of your choices!
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jul 8 12:56
@propelas, the point is that there is no such things as "good taste" or "bad taste". It is just rather subjective.

Also, I don't really care if a movie is a classic or not. Even if the world love a movie (like "The Matrix", "Seven", "The Sixth Sense" or "V for Vendetta") and I don't think it is that good, I'm not gonna pretend I love it.

I think "Red dust" was an amazing movie and you don't. Fine, I don't really care. Like I don't care if you disagree with my choices. I didn't make this list to please you or anyone else.

By the way, why do you think "Red dust" was so bad ?

Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jul 8 13:18
I don't really care if a movie is a classic or not. Even if the world love a movie (like "The Matrix", "Seven", "The Sixth Sense" or "V for Vendetta") and I don't think it is that good, I'm not gonna pretend I love it.

You're right about that.I agree with you.But the movies i said to you they are not only classics.Are masterpieces!!!
Anyway your thought is that Red Dust is almost masterpiece and Seven,Matrix,Sixth Sense ans V overrated.And if anyone tell you why you said is a matter of taste.Ok
I don't said Red Dust was bad.I said it annoying.
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jul 8 13:31
@propelas, Why do you think "Red dust" is annoying?

Classics, masterpieces,... It's the same thing! Sometimes I will love a masterpiece and sometimes I don't.

And if you want a more elaborate answer, check this list :
http://www.listal.com/list/top-10-most-overrated-movies

There I trash some mighty masterpieces... Enjoy!
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jul 8 13:51
well classic and masterpiece is NOT the same thing.
And how you said that you don't like a masterpiece.It make no sense.
anyway for your other list-masterpiece i have not something to say.read my reviews from your movies,and maybe understand some things.Is a matter of taste.
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jul 8 13:58
@propelas, why do you always try to avoid a serious conversation by making some lame jokes? I will never understand this...

Anyway, some movies are considered masterpieces by most of the viewers (for example "Seven") and I think it would be quite pretentious of me to say it's not a masterpiece just because I don't think it is that great.

and please, stop condescending me...
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jul 8 15:43
Wow, how come i missed this list?

The selections are great
