So, these are the movies I'm going to see at home during the following months.

I use 4 mediums :

1. I recently bought a new HD TV and also an HD receiver/recorder. So, I can record movies with HD quality. Good times!

2. I buy (mostly cheap) DVDS.

3. I buy (very occasionally) Blue-Rays (Actually, I removed them because my Blu-Ray player seems to be f*cked up and reads only 1 of them out of 10. Damned...)

4. I came accross this awesome website called 'Archive.org' here on Listal. There, you can find a whole bunch of free domain movies. I'll try to watch one of those from time to time.

I guess I'm old fashioned since I don't download movies, I don't have netflix, satellite, cable, whatever... I used to rent DVDs but the nearest shop has closed down something like 2 years ago...



The good news is that you can influence this list!

Rules :

- you can vote for any movie you want. It means you can vote for just one movie, but you can also vote for 10, 20 movies,... There are no limits.
- each time, you vote for a movie, it will get 1 point.
- you can also vote AGAINST a movie. In this case, it will get -1 point.
- you can vote only once for a movie.


Once again, I was inspired by the Mighty giraffe. Don't forget to check his list :

Glad I inspired you to make this list! And for the record if it wasn't for my future wife I'd probably still be buying and renting DVDs. She's the one with the Netflix account, I've just taken it over. ;)

Casting my votes for:
Son of Rambow
When You're Strange
Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead
Planes, Trains & Automobiles
Biloxi Blues
The Jerk
Sunshine Cleaning
Metropolis
(since it keeps moving up my list I figure it should move up your list too haha)

Casting however many votes I can against The Spirit though. It's one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I walked out on it & asked for my money back.

Looking forward to your thoughts on many of these!
Posted: 2 years, 10 months ago at Jun 11 10:32
Haven't seen hardly any of these, but I liked most of the titles I have seen. I'll cast my vote for 4 of these:

1. Metropolis (Actually I'm a bit shocked that someone as versed in film as yourself hasn't yet seen it. Not a criticism, just that you seem to have seen so many of the "big ones" in cinema.)
2. Eden Lake (Very intense, and pretty dark Brit horror. I didn't realized when I picked it up that I was about to watch one of those horror films that stick with you.)
3. Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead (Been quite a while since I saw it, so feel free not to take this recommendation too seriously. But I remember thinking pretty highly of it.)
4. The Jerk (Not as big a Steve Martin fan as many, but it's an American comedy staple, with some pretty hilarious moments.)

Nothing here I've actually seen that I feel strongly enough about to vote against. But I see a number of titles that I have serious doubts about and that I'd never bother with. So thanks in advance for watching them for me and reporting your responses so I likely don't have to sit through them!

On the other hand there are more than a few that I've been wanting to check out so I'll look for those reactions too! Cheers, and happy viewing!
Posted: 2 years, 10 months ago at Jun 11 14:02
I edited my list to include some of your new additions and subtractions.

1. The Dream Team -
one of Michael Keaton's best movies.
2. Planes, Trains and Automobiles -
I think it is a little over rated but it is considered a comedy classic
3. Julie & Julia -
Meryl Streep is great as always, I liked it even though the only thing I know about cooking is how to turn on the micro wave.
4. Night At The Museum - Battle Of The Smithsonian-
not as good as the first one but still pretty funny and worth a watch.
5. Death On The Nile -
I haven't seen it but I love Agatha Christie and Bette Davis is in it, so it's a movie I want to see -
which reminds me that I should move it further up on my queue.
6. The Jerk -
not my favorite Steve Martin movie but it was his first big hit
7. The Great Waldo Pepper -
I haven't seen it but I don't think I have ever seen a bad Robert Redford movie.

Votes against

1. Dreamscape -
Loved many, many 80's movies - but I hated that one.
2 The Boys From Brazil -
It has two of the greatest actors of all time in Gregory Peck and Lawrence Olivier - but the plot is just to creepy for words.
3. Kung Fu Panda -
I walked out on it in the theater -
King Kong is the only movie I liked Jack Black in - he annoys me no end.
4. Daddy Day Care -
One of a long string of Bad Eddie Murphy Movies.
Edit: 2 years, 10 months ago
Posted: 2 years, 10 months ago at Jun 26 21:29
I have seen very few of these movies, but I'll vote for Water for Elephants. It's one of the most beautiful movies I've seen in a few years, even if the story doesn't get to you, at least you can enjoy the view.

I'm adding a few to my own queue thanks to this, thanks for the great list.
Posted: 2 years, 9 months ago at Jul 9 18:50
For July...

Votes for:
1. The Dream Team (I've watched it several times and it's always made me laugh)
2. Role Models (seen it twice, solid comedy)

Votes against:
1. Accepted (a couple good moments, but there's better comedies you could watch instead)

If I manage to watch Dead Snow or Baader Meinhof in the near future, I'll let you know what I think.
Posted: 2 years, 9 months ago at Jul 13 10:46
For July:

1. Death on the Nile
2. Traitor
3. Son of Rambow
4. Kung Fu Panda
5. Eden Lake

Against:
The Spirit
Posted: 2 years, 9 months ago at Jul 14 20:16
For July:

Huh. I've only seen three of these!
Vote For:
Role Models
Planes...
Cadillac Records (haven't seen it, but curious)

Vote Against:
Accepted
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 2 16:17
Hmm...only see 1 film for August that I have seen but haven't already voted on, so...

Voting for: Hard Eight
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 2 19:22
Yep, me too. I second the Hard Eight vote.
I'm also gonna throw in a vote for All the Boys Love Mandy Lane even though I haven't seen it yet, cuz I'm curious what you think.
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 2 23:46
OK, well a vote for "Kung Fu Panda". I thought it was cute and didn't raise any moral issues for me to rant on about. Besides, you'll be seeing KFP 2, 3 and 4... floating around so good to stay on top of things ;)

A vote *against* "Freedomland"... I looked at the film and thought "Wow, amazing cast... why haven't I heard more about this film". Well, the answer turns out that it is a horrible , horrible film! I would say that it was worth it to watch Julianne Moore but she has dragged me into a few films I later regretted.
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 5 10:59
Oh how did I miss The Ruins on here? I'll give that a vote too! Won't change your life or anything, but if you feel like a horror flick but also don't want to completely waste your time it's a good way to go.
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 5 11:38
@Xanadon't, 'The Ruins' have just been added yesterday so you didn't miss a thing actually.
Posted: 2 years, 7 months ago at Sep 8 16:55
For September -

1. Julie & Julia -
I really enjoyed it, but I like just about everything Meryl Streep does -
it is especially good if you enjoy cooking - I am mostly a micro-waver myself.

2. The Proposal
3. Stealth
4. The Great Outdoors

All three Ok movies, but nothing great -
I wouldn't categorize them as a must see,
but they are not terrible either.

Vote against

1. Dreamscape - it still gets my vote against,
but I generally don't like movies about dreams -
which is why I didn't like Inception or the Nightmare on Elm Street movies either.
Posted: 2 years, 7 months ago at Sep 8 17:12
@phillydude, thanks for the suggestions. But you cannot vote for or against for the Same movie twice.
Posted: 2 years, 7 months ago at Sep 8 18:27
Hmm...only newer movie here I've seen is The Great Outdoors, which as phillydude said is entertaining but pretty average. I loved it as a teenager but now I'd probably think it was just OK.
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Oct 12 17:51
I simply will vote against Don't Mess With the Zohan. lol.

I will also simply vote FOR Earth Girls are Easy.

:D
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Oct 12 20:19
Votes for Spanglish and Johnny Dangerously.
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Oct 27 15:47
I second the vote for Johnny Dangerously -
it is one of my favorite comedies :)
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Nov 27 7:10
I see you got the Star Trek DVDs - Hope you enjoy them - I will rank them in order of my preference:

Wrath Of Khan
The Voyage Home
Undiscovered Country
Generations
First Contact
Search For Spock
Insurrection
Nemesis
Final Frontier

Of course it would make sense to just watch them in order, but feel free to skip over Star Trek V.

I also loved the Star Trek reboot.

Happy viewing!
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Dec 10 0:29
Lots of stuff here I've seen now, so here we go...

Films I'm voting for because I think you'll enjoy them: Book of Eli, Let the Right One In, American Werewolf in London, Adventureland, and (since I know you tend to enjoy the Apatow group of films) I Love You, Man.

Films I'm voting for because I think they're definitely worth seeing: Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Twilight Zone: the Movie, and Invention of Lying

I love Toys, but am in the minority on that. Duplicity is pretty average, as is Lovely Bones. I enjoyed Slither, but it's pretty average too...more of a fun horror movie than a good one.

And since it looks like you'll be watching the Star Trek series anyway I'll simply state that Wrath of Khan and the newest one are the best out of what I've seen. I'm not a big fan of Star Trek in general.
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Dec 10 7:57
@the giraffe, Judd Apatow didn't produce, write or direct 'I love you, man', basically, he had nothing to do with it.
Posted: 2 years, 3 months ago at Jan 18 6:24
@johan - Just now saw the above comment. I know he didn't, but I feel it has some stylistically similar things to it as Apatow's comedies, including the humor.
Posted: 2 years, 3 months ago at Jan 20 7:34
Votes For: Adventureland, Breach, (one of my faves) The Hills Have Eyes and Let the Right one in. You may or may not enjoy them, but I liked them a lot.

Votes Against: Wolf Creek, Deck the Halls
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at Feb 13 7:15

I have a few more votes for (aside from the Star Trek Movies)

Enthusiastic recommendations

Trading Places - one of my favorite Philadelphia movies
An Officer and a Gentleman

Mild recommendations

Brewster's Millions
Bride Wars


Vote Against:

The Pacifier

As Roger and Gene might say - two thumbs way down for one of the most inane movies ever made.
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Mar 4 0:56
Voting for: Trading Places, Young Frankenstein, Assault on Precinct 13, Happy Gilmore

Voting against: Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Mar 4 1:12
haha Alvin and the Chipmunks on your queue. Yeah, I would advise against that as well.

Tomorrow I promised the kid I'd take her to the theater to catch what must be the third installment of this series. Trash American pop culture animized..

I would think this would be a really nice feature of living in Holland, not being barraged by the American herd's evolving/devolving inability to tell an interesting, original, engaging story.

That said, watch Assault on Precinct 13 for a hell of a lot of fun. Young Frankenstein would make a family movie night movie.

Hey, watch Agnes and His Brothers for the club too!
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Mar 4 1:14
Since it is a new month - a few more votes -

Enthusiastic recommendations:

Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Jun 24 15:37
@the giraffe, No I have never seen 'The Vanishing'. It is quite shocking that after living for 10 years in the Netherlands, it is only the first time this movie is on TV when it is considered one of the best Dutch movies ever made. Even the American remake has been broadcasted at least 3 times during the last years... Anyway, I can't wait to see this classic!

Meet Dave -
one of the long string of bad Eddie Murphy movies, also, don't feel compelled to watch those last two Star Trek movies - it's better to go right from First Contact to the reboot and pretend like the final two movies never happened :)
Posted: 1 year, 8 months ago at Aug 24 7:40
@phillydude, I know the 2 Star Trek movies are pretty bad but I'm very obsessive and I have the dvds so I will probably end up watching those but thanks for the warning...

Vote for: Hellraiser, Inception, Scott Pilgrim, Planet of the Apes, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Beneath the Planet of the Apes (Wasn't sure if I should vote for or against that one since the movie is average, but there are worst sequels than that I decided to vote for it.)

Troy
The Planet of the Apes '68

Mild thumbs up:

Inception
Labyrinth

Thumbs down:

Planet of the Apes '01 - an unnecessary remake

Is it too late for recommendations?
Posted: 1 year, 4 months ago at Dec 7 9:01
@AVPGuyver21, no, you can vote whenever you feel like it.
Posted: 1 year, 4 months ago at Dec 7 22:56
Recommendations:

Godzilla (Gojira) (1954) - The original Godzilla is much better then the 1998 shitty remake. The movie has a great anti-nuclear war message and shows the widespread devastation that the country had suffered in World War II.
Criterion just did a DVD & Blu-Ray release of the film which is worth checking out.

Late Spring (1949)
Horror of Dracula (1958)
It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963)
Double Suicide (1969)
Showdown in Little Tokyo (1991)
Audition (1999)
13 Assassins (2010)

I just saw the new iTunes section. Gotta vote for Bullitt since you've never seen it. Would also recommend Swingers though I doubt you'd enjoy it like I do, and Radio Flyer except it's been about 20 years now since I saw it so it's possible it's not as good as I think I remember.

So yeah, definitely Bullitt at least.

Vote for: The Experiment

I COULD vote for a couple others but I have a feeling you'll watch Drive and The Fighter soon enough anyway. And I'd like to think you'll enjoy Friday, but I think it's a film you would've appreciated more back when you still smoked. ;) Unsure how you'd feel about it now.

I'm voting for The Birth of a Nation (it's on blu-ray), Intolerance, Broken Blossoms, and The Phantom of the Opera. I'm voting against To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.

If you're open to suggestions not on this list, I suggest seeing Chimes at Midnight (Falstaff) and The Trial because they're much better Orson Welles films than Macbeth.
Posted: 1 year ago at Apr 17 16:55

I'll toss in a vote for Trust. That movie is great, very reminiscent of what Sidney Lumet might have done with the subject. Also, I'll definitely vote against To Wong Foo Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar purely on the basis of me not wishing that anyone ever sees John Leguizamo as a Puerto-Rican tranny.

@filmbuilder, sure I will watch 'Wreck-it-Ralph' and 'Despicable me 2' at some point but it is not really a high priority.

How do you get the bit at the top that says Recorded movies without putting it in the description?
Posted: 2 months, 3 weeks ago at Jan 27 10:10
It is pretty simple.

- in your list, click on 'Rearrange and add items'
- you need at least 2 sections. To add one, click on 'Add section'
- choose the concerned section and click on 'Edit section'
- in 'Name', type in whatever you want and click on the green button 'Edit section'

You can also throw my votes behind The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppets. Curious to see what you think of those since you somehow haven't seen them yet. Guessing you didn't grow up with the Muppets like I did.
Posted: 2 months, 3 weeks ago at Jan 28 7:11
Indeed, I didn't watch them as a kid, I watched the cartoon 'Muppets Babies' instead.

Yes, with this list, you can vote as often as your like. However, you can vote only once for the same movie.

And while I haven't seen it, I can't imagine the American remake of Das Experiment can hold a candle to the original film. Tempted, thus, to vote against it just on principle.
