The Giraffe's 30 Days, 30 movies list

Mother (2009)
Day 01- The best movie you saw during the last year



Mother tops my Best movies of 2010 list, so I've decided to give it this spot. I'm sure there was a movie that I watched last year and liked better that didn't come out in 2010, but rather than rack my brain I'll take the easier route.

People who added this item 1935 Average listal rating (1300 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7
Wayne's World (1992)
Day 08 - A movie that you’ve seen countless times



Seen it enough times that I could mute it and perform all of the dialogue along with it. Also true for Pulp Fiction and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 2838 Average listal rating (1773 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.3
Day 09 - A movie with the best soundtrack



How many soundtracks reproduce the experience of watching the film? This is the only one I'm aware of.

See also: most if not all scores by Danny Elfman, The Crow soundtrack, A Clockwork Orange soundtrack, and most soundtracks from Tarantino's films.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 746 Average listal rating (494 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 7.8
Duck Soup (1933)
Day 10 - Favorite classic movie



Along with the rest of the Marx Bros. films I've seen.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1843 Average listal rating (1147 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.2
Super Size Me (2004)
Day 11 - A movie that changed your opinion about something



After watching this I started educating myself about my food choices/options and gave up fast food.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 366 Average listal rating (277 ratings) 2.7 IMDB Rating 2
Day 12 - A movie that you hate


As well as all the other films in my I want a refund list. I refuse to post an image for it.
People who added this item 555 Average listal rating (400 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.8
Hudson Hawk (1991)
Day 13 - A movie that is a guilty pleasure



Actually I don't believe in the term "guilty pleasure", because I don't feel guilty about any movie that I enjoy watching nor do I see why anyone else should.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 258 Average listal rating (175 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.5
Hoosiers (1987)
Day 14 - A movie that no one would expect you to love



For the most part I hate sports, so me loving any sports film is pretty rare.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 2004 Average listal rating (1298 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.5
High Fidelity (2000)
Day 15 - A character who you can relate to the most


Rob Gordon


Replace his love for pop music with a love for honest, original music and we're basically the same person. See also: Joel Barrish of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1553 Average listal rating (1064 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.8
Mortal Kombat (1995)
Day 16 - A movie that you used to love but now hate


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


the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 116 Average listal rating (47 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.7
Day 18 - A movie that you wish more people would’ve seen



As well as every other film on my Great underappreciated films list.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 3167 Average listal rating (1922 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.6
Day 19 - Favorite movie based on a book/comic/etc.




Other favorites based on books: Fight Club, Choke, Stardust (which is better than the book), The Shining, High Fidelity, A Clockwork Orange, and To Kill a Mockingbird.

My favorite movie based on a comic book is Oldboy, which already holds a spot on this list.
the giraffe's rating:
Day 20 - Favorite movie from your favorite actor/actress


That'd probably be Peter Sellers.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 3384 Average listal rating (2393 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 8.3
Aliens (1986)
Day 21 - Favorite action movie


the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 45 Average listal rating (31 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.9

the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1311 Average listal rating (785 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.1
Mary and Max (2009)
Day 23 - Favorite animation



This was tough to choose. See also: The Incredibles, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, Coraline, and Heavy Metal among many others.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 4737 Average listal rating (3094 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.7
Day 24 - The most overrated movie


Not posting an image for this one either.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 442 Average listal rating (258 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.5
Day 25 - The most hilarious movie you’ve ever seen




Followed closely by Borat, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Dead Alive.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 413 Average listal rating (248 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.4
Day 26 - A movie that you love but everyone else hates



Pretty sure people hated it because it requires you to pay attention and use your brain to piece it all together. Each time I watch it the pieces come together better than before.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 982 Average listal rating (581 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.9
The Fall (2008)
Day 27 - A movie that you wish you had seen in theaters



Because the visuals are too awesome to be experienced on a TV screen. There are many others I could put here also for a variety of reasons, but this one came to mind first.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 7855 Average listal rating (5692 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 8.1
Day 28 - Favorite movie from your favorite director



If you've seen my other lists, then you know that this is for Kill Bill as a WHOLE, not just the individual volumes. And you also know that's because the film was intended to be viewed as a whole, but Miramax split it up claiming nobody would sit through it all at once (jerks).

Tarantino has been my favorite director ever since I saw Pulp Fiction in theatres in 1994, then watched Reservoir Dogs later that year. And while I've seen Pulp Fiction more times than any of his films it's Kill Bill that stole its spot to become my favorite.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 6473 Average listal rating (4449 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.8
Day 29 - A movie from your childhood



After my dad took me to see this in the theatre, I went home and transformed my bedroom to look like Elliot's. Such is the power of film. ;)
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 2799 Average listal rating (1653 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8

Well, Kill Bill is already on here, so I've awarded this spot to my second favorite movie of all time.
