No exaggeration, I have probably seen this 30 times. I used to watch it every day for about 2 weeks because I found it so funny. I love South Park and it is never given enough credit and only brushed off as 'potty humour' when it is really a clever satire (people just don't see past the outrageous jokes to see this).
Not so much an opinion on world wide matters such as racism of homophobia, this changed my opinion about black and white films. When I first put this on (it was on TV when I was about 12), I nearly turned it off because it wasn't in colour. However, I stuck by it and I am so glad I did. Certainly holds a place in my heart for being the first non-colour film I saw and for helping me realise that Black and White films can be just as good.
Compared to Nolan's most recent films (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Inception), hardly anyone has seen his debut film. Far better than his recent films (they are still good), Following is a clever classic.
[Stand in for what would have been 'day 24 - that one awesome movie idea that still hasn’t been done yet' but I prefered this one, plus it is easier to do on Listal]
Bonnie and Clyde has my favourite performance from Faye Dunaway (Chinatown is my favourite film featuring her); she gives a fierce performance but also a human element that we rarely see in biopics depicting killers.
It is the imagination of a child, written by adutls, for children who currently have such fascinations and adults who once did with their own childhood. A film with genuine heart, that actually made me laugh out loud, rtaher than an extored snigger here and there.
I cannot understand why people hate this film so much. It is well directed, with fantastic suspense, a good ensemble of unknowns who all give a great contribution to the film. There is even the typical 'Racial tension' crap thrown in that the PC Brigade usually lap up but nope. Why people hate this film is beyond me.
Another film I used to watch day after day after day. I loved it for everything. I loved Gene Wilder as Willy Wonker before I even knew or cared who Gene Wilder was. I loved the songs. I loved that little bit of uneasiness it had (the tunnel scene is haunting) and I loved the colour and granduer of it all. Perfect, although my parents must have been sick of it haha.
The Shining is the film that got me into films. I was glued to the screen and was effected by it long after it finished. An absolute classic.
[The reason this wasn't used as the best film of my favourite actor (Jack Nicholson) or best film of my favourite director (Stanley Kubrick) was because I wanted to keep The Shining for this Favourite Film' option].
I am doing the 30 Movies but not doing it daily, rather just doing it all now. Considering this was first released on Tumblr, where you could post the same film multiple times, some films will be used as stand-ins for a film that has already appeared on the list.
