Thread: Favorite flicks

  1. #1

    Default Favorite flicks

    I love movies. I was thinking today about Joker and if it had already made my favorite flicks list, and I think it has. So then I started thinking what that list would entail and here it is in no particular order


    The Big Lebowski
    Fargo
    O'Brother Where Art Thou
    No Country for Old Men
    Pulp Fiction
    Jaws
    True Romance
    The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
    The Life of Pi
    Joker
    Hell or High Water
    Reservoir Dogs


    So a lot of Coen Bros. and some Tarantino.

    What is your list?

    LotR is the best movie trilogy in existence.

    Godfather I and II are arguably two top five movies ever.

    The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is good stuff. I haven't seen Road to Perdition in a long, long time, but it was excellent

    The fact that A Fish Called Wanda appears nowhere on this page is a crime tantamount to human trafficking.
