Films Of My Life

Sort by: Showing 37 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
This must be one of the earliest films I have ever seen. The plot makes little to no sense at all and let's face it: American Rabbit IS a very bad film, but it must have had one helluva impact, because I still remember and even enjoy it quite a bit.

Plus: I like furries. Maybe because of this film?

A childhood friend introduced this film to me, and boy if it changed my life. I remember being huge fan of Jack London, dogs and arctic wilderness as a kid, the latter two I'm still. The film itself is also one of my favorite adaptations of all time.

Rock-A-Doodle (1991)
Rock-A-Doodle traumatized me. Don Bluth usually puts very dark and scary stuff into his films, just to twist everything at the end where it turns all fine and dandy again. The last minutes of my tape were worn off, so I never got the happy ending with this one. In my mind the kid really dies at the end and the villain takes over the world.

This film is a friggin' mess.

Dogs, I like dogs. I think what really stuck with me from this film was the theme of death and resurrection. I don't know, I must have been very fascinated with this kind of stuff from a very early age. I still am.

Saw these two at the same time. Nothing to add here.

A very underrated sequel.

Before I knew about Indiana Jones, Alan Quatermain was the shit. King Solomon's Mines is as stupid as an adventure film gets, but it was my very first official "favorite film" ever.

Buster Keaton made me a silent film junkie, and eventually a film junkie as well. Sherlock Jr. was THE ONE film that changed everything.

My dad used to be a huge fan of old horror films. I remember we had this one on tape, enjoyed watching it over and over again. The last 20 minutes or so scared the hell out of me. The soundtrack by Jerry Goldsmith is still a killer.

This film is like a rite of passage: every teenager has seen it at least once. When I first saw it, it became one of my favorite films of all time. Too bad the on point social criticism of the film is so easy to misinterpret people don't usually get it at all.

This film is badass. I remember seeing this multiple times as a kid, and the suspense just killed me every time, it still does. Maybe because of this film I'm huge fan of cyberpunk films and comis. Also, this is my favorite Terminator film still.

This film opened the doors of German Expressionism for me. My life has never been the same since.

The first Hammer film I ever saw. I my opinion it's also one of the best and the most subtle one of them all, a great underrated British horror classic.

Another one of Hammer flicks, this time with Peter "Badass" Cushing as Van Helsing, one the greatest movie anti-heroesish of all time. This film made me a huge fan of Terrence Fisher, Chistopher Lee, Peter Cushing and good old gothic vampire films to begin with.

Loving tribute to the old vampire classics, and Hammer in particular. They even tried to get Vincent Price to act as Peter Cushing impersonator, but the old man was already sufferting from severe health problems that would eventually lead to his death.

This film made me interested in film noir and hardboiled detective novels, also this was the very first film I ever wrote an essay about. Today it's a kind of a hobby, and hopefully I'll eventually find enough time to write more about this type of stuff.

Probably the greatest silent film ever made. Even as a kid Greed struck me like a lightning and at the time pretty much inspired me to concentrate on silent films more than any other genres for months and years to come.

Princess Mononoke is so goddamn good film, it destroyed my interest in films for years, because I felt nothing could come even close to it. Luckily I was wrong, but it still is a masterpiece.

This little gem gave my whole new perspective on Japanese anime. Chirin no Suzu's less than 45 minutes long, but has more heart, better story and smarter message(s) than most full-length feature films. It also has balls, as it goes from cute Carebears animation to nihilistic revenge drama in one scene alone, only to end in a tragic note.

Imagine Lion King, where Simba gets his revenge, only to be rejected by his peers and die alone somewhere far away. That's what this film is like.

After recovering from seeing Princess Mononoke years later, I started watching some serious art films. This was the first one, and arguably one of my favorites.

The reason for picking Au Hasard Balthazard was as random and stupid as it gets: Au Hasard Balthazard starts with a letter "A". That little I knew about this film before seeing it for myself.
