4. The Prestige (2006)

Fact:
Most Percentage Seen From an Director.

I have seen 100% of all Christopher Nolan Films. This is my highest rated percentage I've got from an director atm. 9/9 films are seen. He is one of my favorie directors and haven't made to many films yet, so it wasn't too much of a suprise.

The Prestige is my favorite film from the director!

5. Demolition Man (1993)

Record:
Most Seen in one Month (One Film).

I have watched it 10 times in one month.


Fact:

When I was around 14-15 years old, I loved Demolition Man. It was cool and very funny to watch. One of my best childhood memories (when it comes to films that is). Now it's still entertainable.



The villain is pretty cool too!

6. JCVD (2008)

Fact:
Most Percentage Seen From an Actor.

I have watched 67% of Jean-Claude Van Damme's movies. This is my highest rated percentage I've got on an actor atm. 39/58 movies is seen. He was my favorite action-actor back in the days, but when I have taking some rewatches - the films aren't that good. Tho, he prooved himself and other that he could act in the film from 2008 - JCVD. This is my favorite movie from him.

7. The Machinist (2004)
Fact:
- Best Actor.
Back in the days, my favorite actors where Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and the named Jean-Claude Van Damme. This was until I got a turning point in my life and got a little bit different taste in movies and actors. But my first meeting with the actor, we have to go a little bit back.

Reign of Fire was showed in Norway in 2002. I went with an friend of my (Which ironically enough isn't too good friend with me now) and we were amazingly suprised. We liked it a lot back then. Now I think it's still entertainable, but not too good. Many says today that he does a good job in The Dark Knight and that is one of his good works, but not THE best. Well, a lot of people forget the movies like Equilibrium, American Psycho and of course El Maquinista (The Machinist)! He's still good in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight of course, but we can't forget the other fantastic performances! This I understood after I had my turning point - 2/3 years ago - and I had a new favorite actor, not only one of them, but my all-time favorite as well.

And the extreme body modificaton that he did from El Maquinist to Batman Begins is unbelievable. It seems also that he have done some body modification from Public Enemies to The Fighter.

8. Rocky IV (1985)
Fact:
- Worst Actor Period.
I have actually never been fascinated by mr. Lundgren. He wasn't a huge hit as sly, terminator and the karate machine was. When I saw him in Rocky IV, I remember me thinking that this was the only film I had seen him in. Tho, after some watches I think I won't cry over spilt milk here. Especially not in the later days, as of today. Since he is an horrible actor. The only thing he could play was an russian oversized drugheaded boxer a longside sly. And still when we watch it, we are cheering for sly to kick his teeth out, Literally! Dolph Lundgren is of now the worst actor that is (for me atm).

9. Walk the Line (2005)
Fact:
- Best Suprised by an Actor
Actually, I really disliked Joaquin Phoenix as an actor in my earlier days. But all of that changed when I saw Walk the Line for the first time. Then I really got to see what a great actor he really are, and the movie itself was also stunningly good!

11. Far Cry (2008)
Fact:
- Worst Director Ever.
He is the worst director in the industry atm and that by far. Ulli Lommel should also be a terrible director, that is what I'm seeing on iMDB at least. BUT no one can match this stupid director. He have made movies from massive well-knowed games, like Far Cry. What the hell is he thinking, when he can't get the right actors, screenplayworkers or the effects to shoot this films.

I got hold up with this director 3 years ago, when I saw BloodRayne, and from there you think he have gotten better and better, since the movie was awful, but no. He has actually gone worse this next years. How is that possible? And I want to know where he gets his money from. No one can be stupid enough to give him money to make a film these days. He also took my favorite actor (Jason Statham) and putted him in the horrible film, In the Name of the King. And What's up with all these sequels? BloodRayne III and In the Name of the King 2? WTF!!!?

12. Face/Off (1997)
Fact:
- Best Guilty Pleasure Movie (HEY, we ALL got at least ONE)
This is my biggest guily pleasure atm. My first viewing with this film, it blowed my mind away. And still today I really like watching it. Many other people have The Rock as their favorite. But Face/off is mine. Close followed by Con Air and, all-ready mentioned, The Rock

13. Dancer in the Dark (2000)
Fact:
- Best Upcoming Director.
Lars Von Trier is obscure and very very real in his films. Well, in most of them that is. I haven't watched a lot of his movies yet, and that's a shame, really - since he is another possibly favorite director. My first experience with Trier was his 2009-film, Antichrist. Visually I was amazed. It was stunning, and I though the film itself were really good. Then it took some time for another Trier-experience, but early this year (january-february) I finally sat down to watch Dancer in the Dark. I had waited for 2 years to see this film, because people warned from seeing, since it was boring. Boring? Dancer is an perfect masterpiece, that should be seen by all movielovers out there.

Now, you probably think I took a Trier-marathon. No, I didn't. Trier's film need a break from each other, otherwise it can be too much. But, I think it was in August, I finally sat downed to watch one more of his film. Now this film is around 3 hours, so it's very hard to watch, even if you are a fan of Trier. But again, a marvelous film. Not Dancer in the Dark-perfection, but clearly up there with one of the best movies out there.

Now, after seeing 4 movies I must really say he's about to be one of my favorite directors. He is definately up-and-coming.

16. Lethal Weapon (1987)
Fact:
- Best Film That Haven't Changed Over the Years.
At least one time in your life, you have been up much longer than you supposed to, because of a movie. 48 Hrs. was my first film who was like that. The second film that happend to, was Lethal Weapon. Now, first time I watched this film - I was amazed. The same went for 48 Hrs. Well, now I have taken a rewatch with both of the films and Lethal Weapon is the film that have hold it standards. Hell, it goes for all 4 of them - even tho the second is the worst of them. But belive me, that says a lot.

17. The Dark Knight (2008)
Record:
- Seen Most Times at the Cinema.
I watched The Dark Knight 4 times when it was going at the cinema. From 20. july to 4. august.

Fact:
After the cinema experience I have wtached The Dark Knight 2 times more on DVD. More times awaits after I get it on Blu-Ray!

18. Gremlins (1984)
Fact:
- Best Childhood Memory.
Today I can say a lot my childhood. But one thing is for sure; Films was easy and just pure fun then. Now I have watched a lot of films that was fun in my childhood, that isn't too much fun to watch now. But one film that I got my best memories from is Gremlins, closely followed by Home Alone & Home Alone 2. First time I watched the film, I was a little bit afraid from it, to be honest. But after getting the spin-off product, a Gizmotoy I have always been thinking the film as an funny and scary movie. My memories with this film will never go away, even tho I watch it 10 years later - I still have the same feeling when I watch the movie 10 years before.

19. Inception (2010)
Fact:
- Most Anticipated Movie that Delivered what it Suppose to Deliver.
After having watched The Dark Knight 4 times at the cinema and a Nolan had another rumored project, I almost couldn't wait for the movie to be released.

Now, before I went to the cinema to watch this masterpiece, I got to know that Nolan had spent 8 years on the script. I would say that's 8 years well spent!

20. Black Swan (2010)
Fact:
- Best Suprised by a Movie
Darren Aronofsky is another upcoming director that have impressed me with two of his other works; Requiem of a Dream & The Wrestler. Black Swan suprised me. Not that I thought BS would suck, but rather that it really gave me an intense movie experience which I didn't think it would do.

Kris's rating:

People who added this item 574  Average listal rating (357 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 8.8 
23. Curb Your Enthusiasm (1999)
Fact:
- My all-time favorite TV-Show
There are a lot of Shows that can be highly appreciated and loveable. But nobody show has ever blowed me totally away and given me a heck of suprise until I saw Curb Your Enthusiasm. The situations Larry is bumping into feels real and this is situations you most likely can relate to. And the humouristically twist to the situation is perfectly timed and done. The actors do a hell of a good job too!



My Favorite Episodes:
- The Grand Opening (S03E10)
- The Survivor (S04E09)
- Opening Night (S04E10)
- The Freak Book (S06E05)
- The Black Swan (S07E07)
- The Safe House (S08E02)

24. Public Enemies (2009)
Fact
- Biggest disappointment at the Big Screen



After I had watched this trailer, I was really looking forward to this film! It looked classy and cool, but what I got served was a medi-core film with a style that didn't fit the film and gunshots-sound that could blow my ear off...
Kris's rating:


My Achilles' heel

Sometimes a film doesn't have to be really good quality vice to get me hooked. Sometimes a film only need a really good twist, that can shake things up a bit, or it can be many good fight-scenes.

Dude if you like Christian Bale that much how come you don't mention Harsh Times? If you havn't watched that yet, just do it, it's my favorite Bale performance.
Posted: 3 years, 2 months ago at Feb 12 19:55
Oh cool, I see my list mentioned here =D Great list. Bale has done way better roles than just Batman.
I think this list idea might become a success in listal, just like the 30 day movie meme.
