It was that good Donte. A movie hasn't left that great an impact on me in a long time. I still can't stop thinking about it. And Tranny, it wasn't playing too close to here either. I had to go to Hartford which is like 30 miles away, but it was so worth it.

That's different UDM. Those two films I feel actually kind of define my list. The Dark Knight is a super hero movie, of my all time favorite hero, from when I was like 3 years old, that was finally done perfectly. I thought they captured Batman's world perfectly. I thought every role was played to perfection. I thought Heath Ledger's Joker is the greatest villain since Darth Vader, who I consider the single greatest character of all time. It was a culmination of awesomeness unlike anything I have ever seen since, well, since Terminator 2.

The Wrestler is an entirely different type of movie. The impact I speak of is an emotional impact. I'm not sitting here thinking, wow that movie was AWESOME, like I did with TDK. I'm sitting here thinking wow, that movie really hit home in my heart. Two totally different reactions, two totally different styles of film, but two films that I found to be perfect in every way. Its impossible to compare the two, but I loved them both. Which is why I say they kinda define my list. I have all sorts of films on here, that hit me in entirely different ways, but each way makes them one of my 100 Favorite Films.

I have to say the last time a film had that kind of an impact on me was the first time I saw American History X, which was a few years ago now.

Yes, generally. I think it is a brilliant concept, great story (that has been often imitated, never duplicated) amazing special effects and terrific action sequences. It improved on the original in every way. I feel like it has everything. It is the Ultimate Action Movie, although some would argue that point. James Cameron did a masterful job. I also saw it from a pretty young age, and it left quite an impression on me, obviously, and every time I have watched it since it hasn't lost a bit of awesomeness. Arnold Schwartzenegger is born to play that role. He is robotic enough as it is. Every scene is awesome.

I felt almost precisely the same about TDK, only it had better characters, not quite as good action, but a slightly better story. They are more like 1 and 1a really. They are impossibly close.

i stand by my conviction that the original Terminator is far superior.. this isn't to say that T2 doesn't kick royal ass--because it most certainly does.. the effects and the action sequences are great, but (for me) Edward Furlong and the new "nice" Arnold ruin it.. Furlong is just begging to be smacked (no way that brat could grow up to be THE john connor), and the relationship between John and the T800 comes off kinda silly.. Arnold worked better as the soulless, unrelenting killing-machine in the original.. (he also had much less dialogue in that role and, therefore, less opportunities to mess up lines)..

and, come on, without Biehn--who the heck are we really rooting for?

That's an action-packed list. Some of the better blockbusters in there as well as some comedy-gold.

Just a quick question though, do you not like foreign movies or do you not watch them yet? Cause there aren't too many on your list.

There are no foreign films on my list because I have never watched them. You really didn't know that Barca? I've been pretty vocal about that for quite some time.

And NSpan, to each his own I guess. I just feel like T2 almost renders the first terminator unnecessary. I love the cheesy dialogue between Edward Furlong and T-800. I loved seeing the Terminator with a soul. A lot of that cheesy dialogue from Furlong and the "nice" Arnold are a big part of what made the movie so great for me. And Linda Hamilton is so much better in the second one. But really, the upgrade in effects and action sequences are what makes it so much better, for me. Its like they are night and day different.

I did know that you said you didn't YET, i thought it implied that the foreign movie talk was giving you some ideas though. Just a little surprised you didn't watch any is all. Do you not like 'them'? I honestly don't know the reasoning.

The reasoning is that there are so many films that I want to see that are in my own language, that I don't have the time to search out and find films that are not. I see most films in theaters, and rarely rent movies. If I don't see a film in theaters, it could take years for me to get back to it. Most foreign films aren't released in theaters around me, and if they are, I don't see them advertised, so I don't know if I will like them or not.

That and really, the fact that I can't understand what the characters are saying does take me out of the film. People yell at me for being lazy and not wanting to read the subtitles, and maybe that's true, but for me its tough to get into a film when I can't understand any of the dialogue.

I'm sure there will be a day when I see some of the foreign films that you all rave about. I think I'm going to start with Life Is Beautiful, because my girlfriend owns it so I have easy access to it and Donte has RAVED about it.

That is a good one to start with. Also try to keep the following in mind; Downfall, Amelie, and Diving Bell and the Butterfly. And since you like action filled movies try; Oldboy, City of Lost Children, or Man Bites Dog.

I doubt you would like Amelie but it was worth a shot... Smile

The Street Fighter (1974)
City on Fire (1987)
Hard Boiled (1992)
Nine Queens (2000)
Ichi the Killer (2001)
Battle Royale (2001)

Infernal Affairs (2004)
The Host (2006)
The Orphanage (2007)

I actually have seen Hero. Its the only foreign film I've seen, and I only saw it because Tarantino's name was attached. It was good, but not really memorable.

I've got a public domain (it's widescreen but dubbed) copy of The Street Fighter. A guy gets his penis and testicles ripped off in that one.

Meanwhile, Juno would have been better had they gotten a better director, a better script, more likeable characters, characters with actual agendas and a reason of why we have 200 shots of people running in packs. My possible idea to having it work: make it a horror film. Juno could have an alien or devil incarnate inside of her. But John Carpenter beat me to the punch with Pro-Life.

I will kill you deader than a T800 dropped in molten lava.
