The Best Movie I Saw Last Year
Technically, The Artist was the best film from 2011 that I saw, but I didn't see it until early 2012, so this moves to the top. It's one of Scorsese's best, and that's really saying something. It's a truly whimsical film that any movie fan will love.
Most Underrated Movie
Road to Perdition (2002)
There were a lot of underrated gems from 2002. Minority Report, Catch Me If You Can, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, etc., but this was always the one that I thought got the least amount of credit. It's a beautiful movie that explores the origins of violence and the bond between fathers and sons. A great cast and flawless direction should have given this movie more notoriety, instead they gave Best Picture to Chicago.
A Movie That Makes Me Happy
It's a Wonderful Life (1947)
The ultimate inspirational film, examining the weight of a single life, and showing us that we're all important.
A Movie That Makes Me Sad
Toy Story 3 (2010)
If you weren't crying at the end of this film, you're not human. (No offense to any vampires reading this.)
Favorite Love Story in A Movie
Best Television Film
The Most Surprising Plot Twist or Ending
The Usual Suspects (1995)
Movie I've Seen Countless Times
The Hangover (2009)
It's not my favorite movie, but somehow I've probably seen it more than any other. It's just an immensley enjoyable movie.
Movie with the Best Soundtrack
Garden State (2004)
Okay, to be honest, I don't really think this, but I already have the movie I do believe has the best soundtrack listed as my favorite movie overall, but this one has a very good one.
Favorite Classic Movie
To Catch a Thief (1955)
I just love watching this movie. It's got everything that you'd want in a classic; comedy, drama, mystery, and a grandeur that can only be made through Technicolor.
A Movie That Changed My Mind About Something
21 Jump Street (2012)
Before seeing this, I really didn't think that Channing Tatum was that good of an actor, but I thought he was really good in this.
Movie That I Hate
Mulholland Drive (2001)
Everybody talks about how great and dream-like it was, and anytime I watch it, I have no fucking clue as to what's going on.
Guilty Pleasure Movie
It's such a stupid movie, but I laugh my ass off every time I watch it.
Movie Nobody Expects Me to Enjoy
The Cabin in the Woods (2012)
Nobody thinks that I like horror films, and usually I don't, but this one was so inventive and fun that I actually thinks it's already one of the classics of the genre.
Movie Character That I Relate to Most
Blazing Saddles (1974)
I really don't relate to any movie character, but I just thought I would give a shout out to Hedley Lamarr.
Movie I Used to Love Now Hate
Batman & Robin (1997)
Whether it was the flashy neon light or the cheesy dialogue, (especially Ahnold's ice inspired one-liners),I really enjoyed this one when I was younger. Then, around the time I hit puberty, I realized that this was pure shot-for-shot shit.
Movie That Disappointed Me Most
The Hangover: Part II (2011)
Where the original was a breath of fresh air to the comedy world, this dropped the ball big time. Well, technically it didn't drop the ball as much as use the same exact model, but less funny jokes.
Movie I Wish More People Had Seen
This was such a sweet little indie-flick with great acting, and a beautiful script that looked at two people trying to find love during their final days.
Favorite Movie Based On A Book
The Godfather (1972)
Favorite Movie from My Favorite Actor
Death Wish 4: The Crackdown (1987)
I really don't have a favorite actor, but I had to find a way to include The Crackdown somehow. KERSEY!!!!!!
Favorite Action Movie
The Avengers (2012)
Favorite Movie Based On A True Story
Favorite Animated Movie
Toy Story (1995)
Most Hilarious Movie I've Ever Seen
The Room (2003) (2004)
Just watch these clips and try not to crack up.
Movie That Everyone Else Hates But I Like
Everybody seems to hate this one because of the monkeys or the nuking of the fridge, but I've always seemed to enjoy it. No, I don't think it's anywhere close to Raiders or The Last Cursade, but I still enjoy it more than The Temple of Doom.
Movie I Wish I Would've Seen In Theaters
This movie is a cinematic event, and getting to see it on the big screen when it first came out would've been a real treat.
Favorite Movie from My Favorite Director
The Dark Knight (2008)
There are a lot of great directors out there today, but a believe that Christopher Nolan has put out the most important ones, and The Dark Knight is his finest effort
Favorite Character From A Movie
Road House (1989)
Brad Wesley is the greatest movie character for several reasons. Always wearing white clothing and a "Dora the Explorer" style ascot, Driving on both sides of the road, blowing up random businesses, and of coarse, bringing a JC Penny to Jasper.
Favorite Movie from My Childhood
L.A. Confidential (1997)
I had an odd childhood. This, along with Toy Story and Rushmore, shaped my taste in movies forever. I thought it was a classic when I was five, and that belief has only become more firm with age.
My Favorite Movie
It's the movie that got Wes Anderson on the map, and for good reason. This is the finest coming of age movie ever, adding actual insight into love and growing up. It also features some stellar writing and acting. It also features the best soundtrack ever, the only reason why it isn't in that category is so it can be here, where it rightfully belongs.
Note: Some clips may contain spoilers.
