Dark Passage (1947)
Day 02 - The most underrated movie

Doesn't get talked about as much as other Bogart/Bacall movies. This one was quite innovative, with the first third of the movie being shot entirely in point-of-view.

People who added this item 2805 Average listal rating (1816 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.5
Day 08 - A movie that you’ve seen countless times

A ridiculous amount of times. There was a time where it felt as though I had it on a continuous loop for a full year. I was just obsessed with it, and still am. I now know this film like the back of my hand. I love it.

Pulp Fiction (1994)
Day 09 - A movie with the best soundtrack

rewster's rating:
People who added this item 2793 Average listal rating (1754 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.3
Vertigo (1958)
Day 10 - Favourite classic movie

I don't quite know what qualifies as a classic for this list. In my eyes a movie as recent as 'The Lord of the Rings' is a classic, or at least as recent as 'The Godfather', but I think this list is looking for something older, so perhaps a 1950's film like 'Vertigo' will qualify. It's my favourite Hitchcock.

The Cove (2009)
Day 11 - A movie that changed your opinion about something

I wasn't sure what to put here. I can't think of a movie that has really changed my opinion on something. This comes close I suppose. I became more aware on how captive animals were treated. I was always against the hunt for dolphins and Japanese whaling, but when I found out how the dolphin was treated on the set of 'Flipper', I guess it made me realise how poorly some animals are treated...

Halloween (2007)
Day 12 - A movie that you hate

Most horror-remakes suck. I really hated this one in particular for so many reasons, but mainly because the director just didn't understand why the original was so great. Suggestive horror was replaced by excessive violence. Love the original, hate the remake.


rewster's rating:
People who added this item 2420 Average listal rating (1640 ratings) 4.8 IMDB Rating 5.4
Godzilla (1998)
Day 13 - A movie that is a guilty pleasure

I know it's bad, but I loved it when I was ten. So I still enjoy it for its nostalgia.


rewster's rating:
People who added this item 2063 Average listal rating (1243 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.7
Changeling (2008)
Day 14 - A movie that no one would expect you to love

Not even myself. The only reason I went to see this movie was because of Clint Eastwood's name. I saw the trailer and didn't really know what to think, and when I saw Eastwood was the director I thought I'd check it out. I had no knowledge of the true story it was based on so I didn't know what would happen, all I knew is what the trailer showed me. I was so stunned and emotionally invested. Some scenes were really haunting and stuck with me long after viewing. I immediately loved this movie, and when I tell people, they're surprised at how much I love it.

People who added this item 2258 Average listal rating (1462 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.7
Clerks (1994)
Day 15 - A character who you can relate to the most - Dante Hicks

I really didn't know what to put here, but I decided to go with Dante from 'Clerks'. He just hates being a store clerk so much and that's pretty much how I felt when I was one, and don't even get me started on what it's like selling cigarettes to tobacco-addicts... "I'm not even supposed to be here today!"


rewster's rating:
People who added this item 2526 Average listal rating (1683 ratings) 5 IMDB Rating 4.9
Day 16 - A movie that you used to love but now hate

This is a movie I used to like, and now dislike. That's the closest you're going to get from me...


rewster's rating:
Day 17 - A movie that disappointed you the most

I read the book just a year before this movie was released, so I was really excited. I guess my expectations were too high. Now that enough time has passed and sequels have come and gone, looking at it now, I actually quite enjoy it.

Grindhouse (2007)
Day 18 - A movie that you wish more people would’ve seen

Day 24 - The most overrated movie

This is the highest grossing movie of all time...

rewster's rating:
Day 25 - The most hilarious movie you’ve ever seen

Even after all these years it still cracks me up.

rewster's rating:
People who added this item 1664 Average listal rating (1044 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.5
Day 26 - A movie that you love but everyone else hates

Apparently not many people like this and it features on some "worst movies" lists. Meh, whatever, I love it.


rewster's rating:
People who added this item 4571 Average listal rating (3145 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7.2
King Kong (2005)
Day 27 - A movie that you wish you had seen in theaters

When this came out I really wanted to see it, but so many things got in the way and for whatever reason I missed my chance. I have it on DVD and it's great, but I feel as though it would have been a great experience to see it on the big cinema screen.


rewster's rating:
People who added this item 2169 Average listal rating (1386 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.2
Raging Bull (1980)
Day 28 - Favourite movie from your favourite director - Martin Scorsese

This is actually my second favourite Scorsese. I'm saving my favourite Scorsese for Day 30.

Aladdin (1992)
Day 29 - A movie from your childhood

I loved it. I saw it twice in cinemas (which was a big deal for me at the time), own it on VHS, and even had an Aladdin-themed birthday party at the "Cave of Wonders".
