Quote: I would be embarrassed to begin to talk about Dr. Strangelove, because there has been so much written about it. It's so bleak. And Peter Sellers is perfect. He's just perfect. Terry Southern and Stanley Kubrick built this doomsday political satire, in the fists of the Cold War, and made the end of the world hysterical. We're bumbling idiots, all of us. We're all walking through dark rooms of our life, bumping into furniture, and it's shocking. I think we all enjoy watching people who are in authority positions act like bumbling idiots; it satisfies part of our ego, I'm sure, on some level. Sellers' commitment to those characters... the scene that stands out is when he's trying to get change to make the phone call to stop the bomb, and that security guard won't let him break government property to get the change. The frustration of that is as painful as it is hysterical. (Ben Foster)

I like the performance of the main role, the guy...he had a heart attack. I don't remember his name. Martin Sheen. I almost said Martin Short. [laughs] I like also the performance of Marlon Brando.

Quote: The film that sort of made me want to be an actor was Cool Hand Luke. I watched it one Sunday when I skipped church, and I was home sick, and it was on TBS, and I was about 12 or 13 years old. I had never seen a man cry like that. I was so fascinated by this masculine tough guy getting emotional, and that sort of started my interest in acting. Figuring out how one gets to that place, and why. And both he and Steve McQueen were the two people I first connected to or looked up to as actors. (Ryan Phillippe)

Quote: The Big Lebowski. Jeff Bridges ? I almost put Starman down, too, but I really think I kind of don't remember the movie so much because I haven't seen it in so many years ? but I love Jeff Bridges, and I love the movie he just did. What was it called? Crazy Heart, he's great in that. But, I mean, there's something about The Big Lebowski and that combination with the Coen brothers sensibility, which, he nailed that down. I don't know exactly what you'd even call that, but brilliant. I loved his performance in that, and I loved John Goodman, and I loved Steve Buscemi. And you know who else was great in that, was Philip Seymour Hoffman. He was really good in that movie, too. Yeah, great, great, great fan of that movie. (Jane Lynch)

Quote: I'm really worried about these five films. It's such a tough question. I mean, the first one is easy for me, I can do that right off the bat. The first one's Back to the Future, for so many reasons: sentimental, cinematic; in terms of just a movie that you love, measuring a movie in terms of how often you can see it without getting tired of it -- it's all of those things for me. I think it's the most perfect movie ever made. It's like the form of a movie that all other movies, entertainment-wise, should aspire to. It?s something that I'll always study -- just the storytelling, the efficiency of it. The fact that every element works so perfectly in harmony. It's a thing to behold. (Justin Long)

Quote: Then I would go with the first Star Wars, which is actually the fourth episode, because I remember standing in line; I was one of those bazillion kids that were standing in line opening day. My poor mother and father had to do that with me. I remember my mom left, and came back a day later. So my dad stood there with me. I think that is one of the most incredible memories for me. It was an awesome film; I'll never take anything away from the film, but the fact that I had a father who was willing to stand in line with me all that while...let's see, I was born in '68, so I was 8 or 9. Eight or 9 and my dad stood in line for me. Yeah, I was there for like a day and a half! (Casper Van Dien)

Quote: That is such a beautiful picture. I like the acting, I like the premise, I like the genuine honesty about the whole thing. It was one of those joyous things; even when [Roberto Benigni] was riding a bicycle, he was enjoying it, you know? 'This is life, this is exceptional, this is something good!' It's just so beautiful.

Quote: For me a favorite movie is a movie that you can watch at any time, and so I would say Gone With the Wind. I think the cool thing about Gone With the Wind... Well, this is what I decided, as I get older and more intelligent, why I like the film -- because as a little kid I just loved the love story, and the Civil War was an interesting thing to me -- but now it's that I think it's really cool to have the heroine of a film be someone that you really just don't wanna like. You struggle liking her and I think that's awesome. It is not a happy film. When it ends it's just so heartbreaking, and I know it's happening but I just can't handle it every time.

Quote: Yes, I admired Marlon Brando and I know that he influenced James Dean and he really kind of changed the world of film acting with his naturalistic style, but it was because of Vivien Leigh's performance as Blanche DuBois that I would put that as one of my favorite movies; because of her dialog, the Tennessee Williams dialog, the music, Kazan's direction, and Vivien Leigh's delivery of lines like -- I'm paraphrasing -- but when she says, "the human heart, how can that be straight?", you know. It was such a powerfully vulnerable, tragic performance that I have to put that on the top five, because that movie held that performance. (Nicolas Cage)

Even though it has a ludicrous backdrop of them trying to find this Great White shark, I think it's a film about people and relationships -- and I just think the performances are fantastic.

The Exorcist (1973)

Quote: As far as the horror genre, I think The Exorcist is the scariest movie of all time. It's like head and shoulders above... there's nothing more terrifying, or deeply sinister than that. When I saw The Exorcist, at that time when I was a kid, I may have slept with the light on. I can't remember the exact time [I saw it], but I remember being literally knocked back. You have the pure theological question about, you know, "What is the role of evil and what is the nature of evil and what is its function?" And I think in The Exorcist the point is, the reason it's here is to try and make us give up hope, and find the courage to not give up hope. Evil wants to so demoralize you that you abandon all hope; it's only human beings' capacity to love and to fight back. But that's the role of evil: To challenge, and to make you choose. And growing up as a Catholic, too, I was immersed in the theology and doctrine of the church, so that movie was a serious, serious f-cking movie. (John Cusack)

Quote: The films that I like aren't necessarily because they're good films in themselves -- One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a good film -- but that one specifically meant a lot to me. Not because I was in a mental home or anything, but that character influenced me so much when I was 15 or 16, and bits of it stuck with me. A lot of that kind of "putting your middle finger up to the world" attitude -- not that I really have that, but...I used to be so timid, and that was one of those films that [helped me break out], by pretending to be [Jack Nicholson's character] Randle.

I mean, I like the combination, the trio of Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis and Sandra Bernhard; that's just one of my favorite trios in a movie.

True Romance (1993)

Quote: True Romance would definitely be in my top five. I particularly loved Patricia Arquette in True Romance. I loved how delicate she is but also how down she is in the fight scene in that film -- it's by far one of my favorite fight scenes ever. It's just so real. I loved that hotel fight scene. And of course I loved the dialogue. I loved how you could just get so attached to the characters. That's kind of like a fairytale for me: to think that two people could meet like that and be completely, you know -- just 100 per cent have each other's back, instead of all the bullshit we go through in everyday life. Two people that just fell in love, and their dedication to each other -- that really comes through in the film. And I think the whole story, and the dialogue, is just really cool. (Gina Carano)

I just think that performance is so brave and extraordinary. It was one of those things that, as a woman, as an actress, I kind of appreciate, you know. And also, that film is kind of a really, truly independent film. I think Cassavetes financed it, I think Peter Falk put money into it; kind of no one really believed in it. I was in a film a couple of years ago that a studio would never touch, a movie called Trucker, which was a great opportunity for me; but those sort of movies need to be independently financed.

Quote: I was one of those kids who had never seen an indie film before I got to college. If it wasn't a big, huge tentpole movie, or if it wasn't on the radio, I hadn't experienced it. Then in college I started getting into independent movies, which led me to classic movies, which led me to all this different stuff. The 1970s movies, for me, were only discovered, unfortunately, as little as six or seven years ago.
So Kramer vs. Kramer. Some of the greatest writing I've ever seen, some of the gutsiest performances. It's just so quintessential of what the 1970s were for me. There's just this unfiltered, raw energy, and despite how beautiful that movie is -- and obviously, it's a well done movie -- the fact [is] that they're not making movies like that anymore. [Kramer vs. Kramer is about] a horrible relationship. It's a really tough situation for the father to be in, and yet [for] everyone who went and saw the movie, there was this weird understanding or commiseration with anger. I think people might have been angrier, or willing to see angry movies. (John Krasinski)

Even though Hackman does play a sound guy, the sound of the movie is really innovative. You have conversations that are happening in the foreground that you can barely hear, and yet that's the main conversation, so they play around a lot with where they put the microphone.

Quote: I love the scope of the movie; there is something in David Lean that I like very much. He's always of the macro worlds and the micro worlds; he didn't only do it in Lawrence of Arabia, but repeated it in Dr. Zhivago and other movies. [In Lawrence of Arabia] he made a movie with enormous scope and events that were known in the world -- the Turkish-British War, and at the time, the taking of Akaba -- things that were very spectacular and very epic, but in reality he's talking to us about the homosexuality of one of the characters and something really minimalistic and very precise. He gets into the soul of a man through this spectacular movie and this union of these two worlds. He did it again in Dr. Zhivago as I said before, because in a way he put together the entire Russian revolution, which is also very big, while in reality telling a love story. So this kind of union, joining, he does between the macro world and the micro world is something that I was always interested in, and he was a master of doing the type of job. It's one of those movies that always remain in your mind. Also, he gave himself permission to do it in a way that probably no studio would buy in our day; just to see a man coming from five miles into the camera for two minutes and a half -- no executive producer would allow that to happen! He gave himself permission to do that, and I had the luck of seeing a remastered version of Lawrence of Arabia in a theater in Spain 10 years ago, and it was magnificent because it gave you the possibility of thinking, which is unusual.
We also have the performance of first time movie actor Peter O'Toole. That was the first movie that he did, which I didn't know until I worked with Omar Sharif in a movie that I did years ago called 13th Warrior, and he told me that. At the time, he was a very prominent theater actor in London, but that was the first movie that he did. I will never forget those blue eyes on the big screen. Amazing! (Antonio Banderas)

Quote: The Deer Hunter. I think the subject matter was very interesting. The way Michael Cimino works, he just got so much out of his actors, especially De Niro, Walken, and John Cazale, even secondary characters like the French guy in the movie. I've probably seen the movie 30 times, and you're just on the edge of your seat the whole time, you don't know what's going to happen next. I think the interesting relationship that Walken and De Niro had with Meryl Streep is very complex. Really great movies are made out of special moments, and there were just so many moments in the movie, like when Chris Walken broke down when they were asking him his family's name while he's sitting in the window. I always remember that. The way that Bobby De Niro went back to rescue his friend. I think the movie had a lot of layers and a lot of integrity, and I think the love these men had for one another was so real you could identify with it. It was like going back to get your brother, you know? (Mickey Rourke)

Quote: Gone With the Wind, and The Wizard of Oz, were two movies that I grew up with and had a lasting effect on me. Have you done the watching it with the Dark Side of the Moon? You should really do that, it's very strange. (Amy Adams)

Quote: And then, probably Harold and Maude. I just think it's this beautiful, complex love story between this kid and a much older lady. Just the performances, the direction... I don't know, definitely one of the great movies. It's wonderful, funny, emotional. (Woody Harrelson)

Badlands (1973)

Quote: Badlands, I think is one of the best love stories of all time. I think it's beautifully shot and I think Sissy Spacek's flawless in it. I watched that movie and -- you know when your hair stands up on your body and you can't control it? -- that movie really affected me quite deeply, and I cried at the end. I based a character that I did last year in this movie called Killer Joe on Sissy Spacek in that movie. It's a big inspiration for me. I think it's a flawless movie. (Juno Temple)

Citizen Kane (1941)

Quote: There's another one called Citizen Kane. Here's a man [Orson Welles] who didn't look back and read about [William] Randolph Hearst and say, 'sorry, I won't make it until [Hearst dies]. He said, 'To hell with it. I'm gonna make it anyway. If you see yourself in it, fine, that's too bad.' And he made it! And it was true! And the way he made it, and the way he works.... Ahhh. I had the opportunity to meet him one time, and I said, 'Mr. Welles?' And he said (mimicking Welles' baritone voice), 'Orson's the name, and if you don't win the g-d---ed Academy Award for Marty, I'm gonna quit it altogether.' He was that kind of a fellow. He was a good man. (Ernest Borgnine)

Quote: It's one of the great endings to a movie ever. I worked briefly on a television show with Mel Stuart, the director, and heard all sorts of fantastic stories about that remarkable film. And of course I knew all the songs - I still do. I have a 5-year-old, but I haven't shown it to her yet. It's kind of scary - that guy who shows up with the little shopping carriage and makes that little speech about how nobody who goes in ever comes out. And the Oompa Loompas. And that boat ride - woo, acid trip! (Greg Kinnear)

Quote: Brief Encounter, I think, is just an exquisite movie. I think I see it at least once a year. It's a Noel Coward and David Lean movie, and it's so ahead of its time in so many ways. Visually, it's ahead of its time. Oh my God, it's like a piece of music. That sequence of lines in it, when they're out in the countryside, and he says, "Are you cold, darling?" And she says, "No, not really." He says, "Are you happy?" And she says, "No, not really." It's f---ing heartbreaking. I mean, it pulls every string; it's beautiful. And it's also a movie that's... the first movie I can think of -- maybe I'm wrong -- where a woman has an affair and is the hero of the piece, and isn't vilified by the piece. The husband is not evil; you know, the husband is kind of wonderful , and at the end he says, "You've been so very far away, and I'm glad you've come home," and all of that. It's just beautiful.

Fargo (1996)

Quote: I really like Fargo a lot. It has everything. I love the Coen brothers. I love Frances McDormand, I think she's just an extraordinary actress. She's so funny in that movie, as Marge. I'm from the Midwest, I'm from Iowa; so obviously that accent's really heightened, but it's something that I hear every time I go home. It's something that feels like very much where I grew up; that backdrop is exactly where I grew up. It's definitely exaggerated but yeah, there's definitely that, "Oh, oh my gosh" where I come from. And when I go home and after I have a couple of beers you'd probably hear it come out: "You betcha!" [laughs]. (Michelle Monaghan)

Quote: Shawshank is one of those films that, every time it comes on television, I watch it -- even though I own the DVD, the VHS, the Blu-ray. Every time it's on. I can't explain why. It's a good script, it's a good story; it's a story about the human spirit and redemption... it's beautiful. That scene when the opera plays, and everybody stops for that moment and you just hear Morgan Freeman's voice come in, that kills me. It's really great. (Amy Adams)

Quote: I'm a big fan of animation. I was just talking to my manager about how amazing How to Train Your Dragon is. The animation is out of this world, and the story... And I love that animated films now have evolved so much that they're real heart-wrenching stories. It's not just for kids, but adults enjoy them now as well. It's just such a beautifully done film.

A few weeks ago, I came accross this very interesting list (Actors/Actresses: Their Top 5 Favorite Films) and I was wondering what would happen if you put a point system to these votes? Let's find out!

The Points system :
- The actors had to provide 5 movies, the first one being their favorite movie of all time. The first movie they picked get 5 points, the last one get 1 point. Some of them actually gave more than 5 movies so several movies get the same amount of points.
- When the 2 movies have the same amount of points, the movie with the most voters go ahead.
- When the 2 movies have the same amount of points and voters, the first movie added go ahead.
- I only put the movies who got at least 5 points.

I still need to add a few quotes but, a part from that, this list is pretty much done.
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at May 29 9:49
I can imagine this took a monumental effort to do all the math, find the quotes, and arrange and code everything, so kudos. I don't recognize everyone quoted, but it's pretty cool that there are a good handful of movies here I've never remotely heard of!

@Pumpkinate, thanks buddy! Yeah, it was much more work than I thought it would be.... But I love those complicated lists. It is like building a cathedral and the end-result is always rewarding.

By the way, if you wonder who are those people, you just have to click on their name on the list on the right and you will be redirected to their profile page.
