My Movie List - What I like - Veed

Choose file... or enter url:
Sort by: Showing 28 items

dramatic

This one represents those movies where in the end, raw emotions in their purest of states overflow.

1. Scent of a Woman (1992)
Veed's rating:


romantic

This one represents those movie where there's a very specific type of emotion involved... and my pick here is a very special one. One that plays with humor, innocence, tragedy and love.
People who added this item 1053  Average listal rating (642 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating 8.6 
2. City Lights (1931)
The way I see it, this is Chaplin's best work, not only because it is Chaplin's greatest portrayal of the Tramp in his career, but because of its perfect mix of hilarious and intelligent slapstick comedy and a very emotional, romantic story. Undoubtedly, this is my favorite romantic comedy of all time and one of the few movies I can rank a perfect score.
Veed's rating:


feel-good

Some movies just simply make you go "wow" of pure satisfaction by the end. Their purpose is nothing less than entertain and provide a very good time.
People who added this item 2079  Average listal rating (1358 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating 8.2 
3. How to Train Your Dragon (2010)
This was incredible... I was speechless after watching this movie. "How to Train Your Dragon" gave me a feeling that I have never felt watching a (animated) movie before. I can't believe I went with such low expectations about this movie and ended utterly amazed. I burst into laughs and tears throughout the movie, such a rare endearing and most outstanding story.
Veed's rating:


hilarious

Just like with pure romances (usually too cheesy or too cute) I'm not a big fan a pure comedies (sometimes, their jokes is funny stupidity). However, there are still some movies whose ability to make me laugh is genius-level in my eyes!
People who added this item 2008  Average listal rating (1342 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 7.3 
4. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)
Veed's rating:


exciting

When I think of exciting movies I think of exhilarating pace and crazy action. You know, those types of movies that make you go to the movies!
People who added this item 2732  Average listal rating (1783 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 8.2 
5. The Avengers (2012)
Veed's rating:


thrilling

More than scary, more the exciting, these movies make you feel in such a way you don't watch it... you experience it.
People who added this item 4532  Average listal rating (3116 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 8.5 
6. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
When I saw this movie for the first time (as well as the first one) I was a child that wasn't supposed to be watching it in the first place... but I'm glad I did it because this movie amazed me in every aspect.

It was violent, and it had such a heavy and dark atmosphere you couldn't help but feel the fear felt by the main characters. This movie really gives that rare feeling that it's pointless to run, that there's no hope, that you can't fight it... that it's simply impossible.

The action is simply out of this world and to this day this remains as one of the best action movies ever made in my book, as well as the pinnacle of what the Sci-Fi genre has to offer. And it managed to do it in a very realistic way.

The ending was the most emotional ending I had seen in my early days, I would even say tragic, because it was one of those movies that transcends simple entertainment. Tt injected feelings of fear, adrenaline, hope and sadness in me like no other movie did.
Veed's rating:


fantastic

My "fantastic" here represents what is fantastic in fantasy and otherworldly settings, and guess what, my pick isn't all that surprising.
People who added this item 8020  Average listal rating (5152 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating 8.9 
7. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the Kin... (2003)
As a very young teenager, "The Fellowship of the Ring" was the catapult for the amazing world of movies, most notable (at the time) movies with epic proportions and an adventurous feeling. That movie remained for many years my favorite movie of all time.

"The Return of the King", representing the whole trilogy here, is the intense and emotional conclusion of the greatest journey.
Veed's rating:


surreal

There's a lot that can be said about surrealism. I for instance, look at it as realism hidden between metaphors and symbolism. And my underrated pick, although very subtle at that, is as surreal as I can ask for.
People who added this item 4001  Average listal rating (2588 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.1 
8. A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)
Veed's rating:


scary

Let me tell you right now, I don't like horror movies. The whole horror, terror, torture elements are for the most part, unappealing to me. Though... some movies manage to inject these elements in such a way, that a genre that isn't supposed to be scary becomes more frightening than horror movies themselves.
People who added this item 5348  Average listal rating (3450 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating 8.4 
9. A Clockwork Orange (1971)
A disturbing movie indeed, but it's not that characteristic that makes this movie superb. What makes this movie a masterpiece is the themes in it: the ethic questions it evokes, the defiance of morals, the removing of liberty of choice and the using of aversion therapy to manipulate and create a "good" person in the eyes of society.

A dark and hideous vision of a future going through the routes of violence, criminality and corruption. Thought-provoking and thrilling story about the young delinquent that goes through all this, with an incredible performance.

And that soundtrack..!
Veed's rating:


disturbing

Again, not so much into the horror genre, but a disturbing type of genre. My pick, is a realistic movie that managed to introduce unreal elements into a survival tale that feels so frightening real I can't help but feel uneasy the whole time.
People who added this item 1296  Average listal rating (889 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.3 
10. The Descent (2005)
The only truly horror movie I have seen (mind you, I have not seen many). It has all the elements a horror movie should have, excellently done and incredibly realistic: violent, frightening, disturbing, hopeless, no supernatural nonesense, human survival to the extreme.
Veed's rating:


dialogue

A movie where the narrative moves forward almost entirely through dialogue. My pick here is a popular choice among movie buffs. Can't help it, for the movie is pure genius.
People who added this item 1894  Average listal rating (1199 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating 8.9 
11. 12 Angry Men (1957)
One of the most amazingly well-crafted and most interesting movies I have ever had the pleasure to watch. What a thrilling ride, what a simple story, what groundbreaking performances from these 12 men and what an achievement in direction!
Veed's rating:


artistic work

What do I mean by this? Well, for me an artistic work in the 7th art is a movie that exceeded not only in plot, originality or narrative, but also in most technical departments, be it picture or sound. It's a movie that basically excels in every department in its entirety, with virtually no flaws. My pick must go to an animated movie.
People who added this item 260  Average listal rating (106 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.6 
12. Memories (1995)
Memories is an anime anthology, one that explores 3 stories done by 3 geniuses of Japanese animation, with nothing in common among them, but that will give you 90 min or so of your life to remember.
Veed's rating:


style

Everybody has different notions of style, but when you refer to a movie with style, it really must have something different and appealing going for it. It's not hard to fall into the action department here.
People who added this item 2967  Average listal rating (2025 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.6 
13. Watchmen (2009)
A movie with an outstanding style and great concept where we have masked vigilants who could be considered heroes by some and villains by many. The movie is long, but has an amazing developed story with one of those endings that will leave you thinking for a while after finishing it. The action is brutal, amazingly choreographed and fast-paced while the characters are very interesting with with their very unique personalities and interests as well as extremely likeable (except from a certain someone...). Not to miss, especially for the fans of the genre.
Veed's rating:


under-appreciated jewel

EVERYONE has a movie they KNOW to be under-appreciated! Not much to tell here, it's a very personal choice. I can only recommend my under-appreciated movies so much.
People who added this item 260  Average listal rating (130 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 8.2 
14. The Twilight Samurai (2002)
A heart-wrenching tale of a man who has long stopped living and just survives doing what he can for his family, that is until the arrival of someone special starts causing drastic changes to this man's life. Phenomenal story.
Veed's rating:


guilty pleasure

Ah the guilty pleasures... things you know that have problems, but you LOVE IT!
People who added this item 1245  Average listal rating (832 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.6 
15. Lethal Weapon 4 (1998)
The Lethal Weapon series is one of the greatest series of films out there. Crazy action scenes, hilarious moments and the best duo in the history of cinema.

The fourth installment of this saga was cheesy and more of the same, but isn't that what we came asking for? That last showdown still ranks as one of the most suspenseful and brutal fights in Hollywood movies. Just great.
Veed's rating:


inspiring

Just say what you will... Disney knew how to make these back in the days. I still love it today.
People who added this item 6557  Average listal rating (4369 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating 8.5 
16. The Lion King (1994)
"The Lion King" excels in the story, characters and soundtrack departments and it definitely has the most memorable intro of any movie... ever.
Veed's rating:


life-changing

I don't think a movie has ever changed my life, but there was at least one movie that made me think for so long... and changed my views on at least something.
People who added this item 2985  Average listal rating (1854 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating 8.2 
17. Into the Wild (2007)
The first time I saw it, it felt just like a very good story. The second time I did it, it had a greater impact on me, and I realized just how powerful and unforgettable is the amazing journey of the main character. Not the "wild" journey mind you, but the personal journey of self-discovery. If not for the amazing soundtrack which has become my favorite of all time, watch it for the amazing scenarios and dialogue.
Veed's rating:


movie-changing

What do I mean by this? A movie that changed the way I looked at movies! The door-opener to new horizons! The trigger of my appreciation for great acting!
People who added this item 5329  Average listal rating (3382 ratings) 8.7  IMDB Rating 9.2 
18. The Godfather (1972)
The start of one of the, if not the, greatest stories ever told in the form of the 7th art, one of the greatest movies ever shown and the build-up of one of the greatest sequels of all time, while being the masterpiece it is on his own.
Veed's rating:


nostalgic

Ah nostalgia... sometimes great, sometimes terrible. One thing is certain, every-time I watch this masterpiece of my infancy (my very first memory of watching an entire movie, my mom had it recorded on VHS) I can't help but smile all the way to the end.
People who added this item 1303  Average listal rating (819 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.7 
19. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)
Ask me for fun, I'll give you the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! (and its sequel!)
Veed's rating:


made me grow

A movie that showed me something. A movie that deals with a problem that has haunted me my whole life. A movie that educated me.
People who added this item 420  Average listal rating (244 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating 8.1 
20. The Lost Weekend (1945)
Anyone who has someone in their family or someone close who suffers from alcoholism or even if you are an alcoholic yourself, I can't help but highly recommend this movie to you. Taking into account when it was made, the story is still very modern and incredibly powerful. I can strongly relate with this movie.
Veed's rating:


destroyed me

Because sometimes, movies end up not being entertaining, but DESTROYING MY HUMAN SOUL!
People who added this item 4844  Average listal rating (3288 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating 8.5 
21. The Green Mile (1999)
A beautiful and tragic story, the kind that is better to watch with some tissues. The casting in this movie is just incredible, it was what made it so unforgeable and powerful to me, the amazing performances of everyone present.
Veed's rating:


TV series

Why not a section for TV as well? It's what allows us to follow a story and its characters for longer giving us much more insight and depth on everything. Best character development is found in this form of entertainment.
People who added this item 4468  Average listal rating (2809 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 8.6 
22. Lost (2004)
A long Journey with highs and lows, but forever one that has had some of the most impactful moments I have felt in any form of entertainment. Starting from the excitement of the departure, getting into the mysteries along the road, going through the confusion of getting lost and ultimately reaching the much expected destination and feel all the raw emotions that go with it. Was there a point to all of it? I don't know. Was it worth it? Definitely.

Lost will forever be one of the most memorable things in my life.

Talk to me about Lost and I'll be the first one to admit its flaws, but I will also try to show you how enlightening this series can be.
Veed's rating:


mini-series

Sometimes longer movies divided by parts, sometimes TV series with most of the crap cut out!
People who added this item 393  Average listal rating (224 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating 8.8 
23. Spartacus: Gods of the Arena (2011)
A much interesting prequel that lives up to the amazing and surprising "Blood and Sand". It's more of the same, but somewhat more refined. While the season "Blood and Sand" is a rough diamond, this mini-series "Gods of the Arena" is a more polished work.
Veed's rating:


documentary

Because movies, not only need to be entertaining, but also informative
People who added this item 48  Average listal rating (35 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating 9.2 
24. Life on Earth (1979)
The genius of educational narrative and conversation, David Attenborough, brought us the beginning of his life series and probably the most complete, interesting and fascinating one at that, no matter what today's standards may be.

Life on Earth takes a look at the origins of life on Earth and its evolution through the geological clock, and I bet my science teacher back in the high-school days could have used this documentary to teach us so much more.
Veed's rating:


short

Because 5 minute stories can leave you thinking for an entire day.
People who added this item 345  Average listal rating (185 ratings) 8.4  IMDB Rating 8.4 
25. The House of Small Cubes (La maison en petit... (2008)
A wonderful and emotional little story. I really liked the atmosphere and its symbolism. Everything was good about this little movie: the silent plot, the music, the visuals, the main character and especially the conclusion.
Veed's rating:


franchise/saga

Some times a certain title is enough to draw you into a certain work. Mine is The Lord of The Rings. It gave me the movies, the books, the games, etc... And so much more.
People who added this item 8895  Average listal rating (5548 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 8.8 
26. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the... (2001)
The greatest tale of good vs. evil is the one told in "The Lord of the Rings" and still remains today, the greatest fantastic journey of self-discovery, inspiration and excitement to ever grace the screen, the books or whatever other form of entertainment.
Veed's rating:


animated movie

Because animation alone is another form of art in itself, and possibly the most versatile means of communication through a screen. With the technology you have now-a-days, no story is impossible to tell.
People who added this item 4368  Average listal rating (2900 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 8.5 
27. WALL·E (2008)
Usually this type of movie, sort of romantic movie, doesn't have much emotional impact on me. However, the story in this was the most powerful and most human story I have ever seen with my eyes. It's pure and simply the story of a being that just doesn't want to be alone anymore, and Wall-E portrays this in a manner that is both artistical and enjoyable, leading to the emotional side of it like no other love story.

I cried my eyes out in this one. There's just so much beauty and purity in the journey of Wall-E.

Not to mention the visually STUNNING scenarios of a desolated post-apocalyptic planet, that only Pixar could come up with.

Simply, one of my favorite movies of all time, and the most heart-warming romance I have ever seen. 2008 was such a good year... and I can't praise this movie enough.
Veed's rating:


live-action movie

So what movie that I have seen on the big screen has entertained me the most in my life? Yay it's a boring and standard one! I don't care, THIS MOVIE ROCKED MY SOUL!
People who added this item 6611  Average listal rating (4441 ratings) 8.4  IMDB Rating
28. The Dark Knight (2008)
The movie that most effectively caught my interest and attention from the beginning until the very end. With a gripping intro, a thrilling ride throughout the entire movie, flawed and very human characters, a memorable soundtrack and the strongest ending I've ever seen, this for me became the perfect movie. It simply doesn't have anything I do not like.

The inconsistencies of the Joker? I simply don't need to know why he does it or how he manages to achieve it, that's how great of a villain he is.

My favorite movie of all time and the only movie I watched more than once in the big screen, ever.
Veed's rating:


 

A list of everything I absolutely love about movies. In this list I try to reach every corner and list what really appeals to me in the 7th art.

*WORK IN (oh so much yet) PROGRESS!*

Nice list! almost all of them was my favorite movies
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Jan 29 21:13
very good choices and I trust you enough to watch one or two of the ones I haven't seen.
Just one question: How can you say that Memories (fantastic, fantastic movie) consists of 3 stories that have nothing in common?

!!!small Spoiler ahead!!! for the rest of the comment!
______________________________________________________
In my oppinion they are tied together very obviously by the theme of loneliness.
Magnetic rose is very obvious and pure.
Stink Bomb forces the loneliness upon the main character by creating a barrier around him.
Cannon Fodder is a bit tricky but if you consider the loneliness in this part being spread out over the entire city, considering their situation with the enemy city and the location, plus the effect this collective loneliness has on the children it ties it up very nicely.

Being alone, suddenly having become lonely, growing up in loneliness.

Dokwart, that insight is brilliant! It's the first time I've heard someone mentioning it! I need to re-watch it though.
