I’ve seen Chicago so many times I’m almost able to sing a part in Hungarian of a song. I’m pretty much a sucker for musicals, and I thought the songs in this one were simply amazing. So, this is my number one movie I can watch over and over again without ever getting sick of it.

I’m not particularly a fan of Batman, despite the fact I like the heroes kind of movies, but, this one was fantastic. Not much because of Batman (who I think the only special super power is money), but because of Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker. Seriously, the movie could be entirely about him and I wouldn’t miss Batman AT ALL.

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. I think Tolkien is a fricking genius, and I absolutely love everything “Lord of the Rings”, but, to me, the conclusion of Frodo’s saga was the most incredible one of them, and that’s why it’s spotted at number 3 of my picks.

The Notebook (2004)


I don’t think I’ve met one girl who has watched this movie and said she didn’t like it. Because, frankly, I think this movie has all the elements a woman loves about love. The guy who fell in love with the girl and never forgot about her, even despite the fact she went away and never answered his letters, a kiss in the rain, the kind of love that doesn’t perish through the years and survives even with the woman’s illness… It’s just beautiful. Period.

Grease (1978)


To me Grease is one of the most popular musicals there’s around. Why? I think the songs are pretty catchy and the plot has been able to survive the years. So, generation after generation, people still watch it. Plus, I love the songs in it.

The Shining (1980)


It’s a fantastic thriller about a guy who pretty much loses his mind. And, if Jack Nicholson’s incredible performance with the axe and his classic “Here’s Johnny” didn’t wow you, then you can quit reading this.


Tolkien is back in this one. Like I said, I think his work with the Saga is fantastically done, so, I’m bound to watch pretty much anything related to it. In this one we have the very beginning of Frodo’s saga to destroy the ring, and I think the way the characters we’ll be accompanying throughout the saga are introduced here is magnificent.

A story created to precede “The Lord of the Rings”, this time with the story of Frodo’s uncle, Bilbo Baggins, explaining how the ring came to his possession. I think it’s pretty impossible not to fall in love with these stories and the way they are played out.

The Avengers (2012)


Once again the hero kind of movie. I like the heroes individually, but put together they are really awesome, and I loved how they’ve picked out the actors that actually play the heroes in their own movies franchise, I think that was the best part of it.

Dirty Dancing (1987)


I don’t love only musicals, I also love movies with dance in it. And, Dirty Dancing is the most traditional of them all. The lift performed by Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey at the end of the movie is so well known most people have heard of it even if they know nothing about the movie.
People who added this item 7192 Average listal rating (5036 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 8.2


To me this is another epic adaptation that came out great. Seriously, I just love how the guy only speaks in iambic pentameters, it makes it so, well, unique!

I’m a fan of Ferris. Seriously, when I was younger I used to love about having a ditch day just like the one he had. Be able to do all of those things without getting caught. So, yeah, Ferris was totally my idol!

Superbad (2007)


I’m a big fan of comedies. And, the silly ones kinda like this tend to make me have a great time, and I like that. I love Michael Cera’s work, and to me this movie revealed other two great comic actors, Jonah Hill and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.


The second movie of the Lord of the Rings trilogy was, to me, the weakest of them all, but, still, better than most movies I had ever watched, and, if you’re into the Middle Earth story and such, it’s still a great accomplishment.
luuhs's rating:


Johnny Depp is a freaking monster! Not in a bad way, of course, I just think he is so absurdly awesome into getting into the character of Jack Sparrow, it kinda makes me want to see him play that part for like ever! The movie probably wouldn’t be the same if they’d cast anybody else to the part.

Easy A (2010)


Easy A reminds me of the comedies made in the eighties, and I absolutely love them. The story is involving and makes you want to actually find out what’s going to happen and if people will actually find out she’s lying about most things.
People who added this item 2535 Average listal rating (1678 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.8
The Goonies (1985)


This is one of my childhood movies. I don’t think there’s anything not to like in this. It’s funny, it has adventure, I think the story is really nice, so, really, this is one of the movies I could watch over and over again without ever feeling sick of it.
People who added this item 5235 Average listal rating (3692 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8.5


When I was growing up I thought all the movies about it pretty sucked. But then I ended up watching this one and I thought it was so incredible I ended up watching a couple of others as well. In my opinion this is the best out of the entire Terminator series.

Jurassic Park (1993)


This may seem weird in here, but, I think it’s fascinating, so, it’ll always have a spot on my list. I think the visual effects aren’t that terrible, despite of how long it’s been since it came out, so, you can still watch it and think it’s actually good. Not to mention I thought it was a very original screenplay.

Fight Club (1999)


Coming out as an escape valve to the routine of some men, in the Fight Club you only really understand what’s going on at the end of the movie. And, it’s not generally something you saw it coming throughout the movie.

The Exorcist (1973)


At the edge of my like 11 years, I watched the Exorcist and, I’ve always been a fan of horror, but, this was genuinely the first, and so far, only, movie that was actually able to keep me up at night. Nowadays I think it’s just because I watched it in a very young age, but, still, quite creepy.
People who added this item 1070 Average listal rating (657 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.3


This is my childhood movie number 2. It’s so cute and lovely, you cannot help liking the characters and rooting for their friendship. Plus, it’s a whole lot of fun when you watch it as a kid.
People who added this item 5742 Average listal rating (3934 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.5
Ice Age (2002)


To me “Ice Age” is one of the best animation movies ever made. It’s funny, I love Sid, and you can always laugh at whatever Scrat is going to do that will end up sending our heroes in their next journey.
luuhs's rating:


Star Wars fans will probably hate me now for having one of the new Star Wars movies around here rather than the old classics, but, to be honest, I kinda prefer the new trilogy over the old one. I kinda expect they’ll redo the movies, but now that George Lucas’ productions were bought by Disney… What can I say? I don’t really expect that much out of the movies anymore…

Home Alone (1990)


If you watched this movie as a kid and you’ve never dreamed of doing exactly those things, then you really didn’t have a childhood. It’s good for a few laughs and I think it has a little bit of every child’s dream in it, the one of being alone at home…
luuhs's rating:

Okay, so, I Love going to the movies and actually watching things, but, there aren’t all that many movies I can say I would gladly watch again. Here’s a list of those I actually thought were worthwhile and I’d recommend.
