Guillermo del Toro's Five Favorite Films

Sort by: Showing 5 items
People who added this item 583  Average listal rating (333 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 7.9 
1. The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)


Guillermo del Toro : "Bride of Frankenstein is absolutely perfect. It has the innocence and beauty of a fairy tale, but has the darkness of a gothic horror tale. So the combination is irresistible." [On hearing that Hellboy comics creator Mike Mignola also named Bride of Frankenstein among his favorite films, del Toro said with a smile, "Well, we are alike in some aspects."]

2. Blade Runner (1982)


Guillermo del Toro : "Blade Runner is simply one of those cinematic drugs, that when I first saw it, I never saw the world the same way again."
Redmist's rating:

People who added this item 256  Average listal rating (132 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 8.1 
3. Los Olvidados (1950)


Guillermo del Toro : "The third film, Los Olvidados -- Bunuel's movie -- which I think is one of the best depictions of childhood ever made"

People who added this item 938  Average listal rating (637 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.6 
4. The Road Warrior (1981)


Guillermo del Toro : "The Road Warrior --- again, it transformed the way I see the world."

People who added this item 1007  Average listal rating (602 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating 8.7 
5. City Lights (1931)


Guillermo del Toro : "And [lastly] probably City Lights by Chaplin, because this is absolute a pinnacle of filmmaking. You have precision comedy, precision filmmaking, and one of the best directors ever. He and Buster Keaton were fantastic, and they were two of my idols."
