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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. ;)
