1. Apocalypse Now (1979)
I've seen horrors... horrors that you've seen. But you have no right to call me a murderer. You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that... but you have no right to judge me. It's impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror. Horror has a face... and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies.

2. The Big Lebowski (1998)
Let me tell you something, pendejo. You pull any of your crazy sh*t with us, you flash a piece out on the lanes, I'll take it away from you, stick it up your *ss and pull the f*cking trigger 'til it goes "click."

The possibility of physical and mental collapse is now very real. No sympathy for the Devil, keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride.

Well... thank you for the thought, but shocking as it may sound, I am not the first writer to sip a little weed. Furthermore, it might surprise you to know that one book I wrote, as you say, "under the influence," just happened to win a little something called the Pen Award. Which, by the way, I accepted under the influence.

Joel: Is there any risk of brain damage?
Howard: Well, technically speaking, the operation is brain damage, but it's on a par with a night of heavy drinking. Nothing you'll miss.

Craig Schwartz: There's a tiny door in my office, Maxine. It's a portal and it takes you inside John Malkovich. You see the world through John Malkovich's eyes... and then after about 15 minutes, you're spit out... into a ditch on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike.
Maxine: Sounds great! Who the f*ck is John Malkovich?

God has a hard-on for Marines because we kill everything we see! He plays His games, we play ours! To show our appreciation for so much power, we keep heaven packed with fresh souls! God was here before the Marine Corps! So you can give your heart to Jesus, but your ass belongs to the Corps! Do you ladies understand?

Mother Earth, you're my life support system. As a soldier I must drink your blue water, live inside your red clay and eat your green skin. Help me to balance myself. As you hold in balance, the Earth, the sea, and the space environments. Help me to open my heart, knowing that the Universe will feed me. I pray my boots will always kiss your face, and my footsteps match your heartbeat. Carry my body through space and time. You're my connection to the Universe and all that comes after. I'm yours and you are mine. I salute you.

34. Do the Right Thing (1989)
Let me tell you the story of Right Hand, Left Hand. It's a tale of good and evil. Hate: it was with this hand that Cane iced his brother. Love: these five fingers, they go straight to the soul of man. The right hand: the hand of love. The story of life is this: static. One hand is always fighting the other hand, and the left hand is kicking much ass. I mean, it looks like the right hand, Love, is finished. But hold on, stop the presses, the right hand is coming back. Yeah, he got the left hand on the ropes, now, that's right. Ooh, it's a devastating right and Hate is hurt, he's down. Left-Hand Hate KOed by Love.

35. King of California (2007)
You want to know how California got it's name? It's not named after some explorer, or king. Nope. Someone made the name up - a writer. He just pulled it out of his imagination in the 16th century, in Spain. He made up this place where there was unlimited gold, and pearls, and beautiful fierce women who wore gold armor, and rode wild beasts. And he called it California. It's true. It was a best seller back then. Charlie told me that. He said I could look it up if I didn't believe him. But I didn't need to.

45. The Corporation (2003)
Narrator: Having acquired the legal rights and protections of a person, the question arises - what kind of person is the corporation?

Noam Chomsky: Corporations were given the rights of immortal persons. But then special kinds of persons, persons who had no moral conscience. These are a special kind of persons, which are designed by law, to be concerned only for their stockholders. And not, say, what are sometimes called their stakeholders, like the community or the work force or whatever.

Robert Monks: The great problem of having corporate citizens is that they aren't like the rest of us. As Baron Thurlow in England is supposed to have said, "They have no soul to save, and they have no body to incarcerate."

Michael Moore: I believe the mistake that a lot of people make when they think about corporations, is they think you know, corporations are like us. They think they have feelings, they have politics, they have belief systems, they really only have one thing, the bottom line - how to make as much money as they can in any given quarter. That's it.

46. Paths of Glory (1957)
The attack yesterday morning was no stain on the honour of France, and certainly no disgrace to the fighting men of this nation. But this Court Martial is such a stain, and such a disgrace. The case made against these men is a mockery of all human justice. Gentlemen of the court, to find these men guilty would be a crime, to haunt each of you till the day you die. I can't believe that the noblest impulse for man - his compassion for another - can be completely dead here. Therefore, I humbly beg you... show mercy to these men.

50. Terribly Happy (2008)
BoomBoom3000's rating:


 

I watch a lot of streaming movies from Netflix, cuz, you know, you get to watch em right away, which is great. So, naturally, I spend a fair amount of time crusing through the Netflix's site trying to find good films to stream. I figured if I do this, there's a good chance you do the same. Hence, I hope this should be a fairly useful list--at least to a particular type of film fan.

All the films on this list are movies that I thoroughly enjoyed and which are currently available to be streamed through Netflix.

I always hesitate to recommend films until I know something about the taste of the person I'm recommending to, but this list should give you a rough idea of the kind of films I like. If you like most of these too, then, yeah, I'd recommend any you haven't seen!

And, if you find yourself digging a lot of these and there are ones you think I've missed, by all means let me know! Like I said, I spend a fair amount of time looking for quality streaming joints, so I'd love any recommendations you've got for me.

10 Point Rating Scale:

1 - 3 Awful.
4 Not good.
5 Meh.
6 Average.
7 Enjoyable.
8 Liked it quite a bit.
9 Loved it.
10 A work of genius.

nice, i was thinking about doing the same thing, but, no time.

if you liked 'This is England', check out Alan Clarke's films which 'Scum' and 'Made in Britain' are both streaming. i watch a lot of these films too and could go on and on like your list. so much quality you can just stream, it's a fantastic service, i'll close with 'Vampyres', 'Venus in Furs', and 'The New York Ripper'.
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Dec 17 18:55
Wow, that is 0/5 for me in terms of even hearing of those films you suggested. I'll have to check em out. Scum sounds like a good place to start.

Also, 2 more that I gotta add to this list that I watched last night: Restrepo and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 6 9:29
I'll come back to this when I'm more awake, but for now I send you to Netflix to watch Mother.

Everything on here I've seen I really like to love, so I'll be checking into the rest.

awesome, awesome list. I'll definately check back on this in the future. Love that you included the largely unseen but quite good "Zero Effect" "Tape" "Swimming Pool" here.

Been meaning to watch "Restrepo" I see you deemed it a work of genius!
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 7 12:26
Really its a wonderful list. i like it.

This list should be updated. Good choices but only 3 of nearly 20 that I looked up are still streaming.
