As title, interested in what you think
1. Indy trilogy.
3. Minority Report
looking forward to War of the Worlds though...
never really got into Saving Private Ryan or Schindlers List....
Jurasic Park wasn't a great film enjoyable the first time but not worth repeat viewings.
Hmmmmmm, tough one!
Narrowing it down in could be SPR, Jurassic Park (well maybe not), Schindlers List or Raiders of the Lost Ark!
Then I remember that my favourite film of all time is Jaws so that's my answer
I doubt anyone's seen War of the Worlds yet!
i've gone for Jurassic Park. A lot of classics in there, but JP is probably the one i could watch over and over, probably partly cos i never grew out of my childhood fascination with Dinosaurs.
Some absolutely great titles in there however for me it has to be Jaws, for the sheer impact that film had on me as a child, and even today i love it. it also has the best musical score of any film, dare a say even better than The Good The Bad and The Ugly
gone with saving private ryan, his best film by far in my eye just absolutly love it. plus if anyone votes for A.I they need shooting !!!
Whats wrong with A.I.?
i think its most possibly the worst film ive had the missfortune to actually see, maybe titantic. should have ended well before it did i actually turned it off. jude law and the little wonder kid just did my head in. awful film to me!
Nore me, i'm really looking forward to seeing Pink Floyd on Saturday
Raiders is my fav
This is a tough one, but i went with Raiders of the Lost Ark. Hopefully War of the Worlds will be up to this quality.
Nothing. A fine movie. And that rare beast an intelligent SF blockbuster.
Its always nice to find someone else who understands A.I.
BTW, who voted for 1941?
always nice to know your thick in the eyes of someone because they have an opinion that differ's FYI All my "needs shooting" comment was meant to be taken lightly, afterall one mans poison is another mans pleasure
I did enjoy AI, I found it quite moving in places. Same sentiment for Titanic actually (which was mentioned). Not perfect films, but some excellent moments. And definitely films I'd watch more than once (esp if they bring an anamorphic version of Titanic out).
Nice to see Jaws doing so well
Having though some more....I reckon my top 3 would definately be:
3, Raiders/Schindlers List
Saving private ryan for me
i also enjoyed A.I yes it may of gone on abit too long but the film on the whole was enjoyable and well made.
Calm down Kopite - you're being a bit over sensitive mate. Nothing of the sort was implied / meant by my post.
The emphasis on "intelligent" was in reference to the fact that there are so few intelligent SF films made these days.
i loved AI - my daughter bursts into tears when she sees teddy, i love haley joels osment's performance - one of the best child acting jobs i've ever seen i thiought he should have been oscar nominated.
There are some really good films on that list but my vote went to Close Encounters. I went to see this while I was in our school's Film club. The school ran a trip to London and I still remember how impressed I was with the odeon in Leicester square. It's probably a sentimental thing because there are "better" films on that list but CE is my favourite.
what was wrong with a.i... well i think i'd say it was about half an hour too long, the bit where robokid gets thawed out in the future spoiled the movie for me, if it had ended with him in the ship under water, everyone would have been left deep in thought about how he may perhaps be left there till the end of time crying for his mummy, but no, they have to add the typical hollywood ending. Other than that, i think the movie was really good.
Same here. Jurassic Park with Jaws a very close second.
Erm, that isnt a typical hollywood ending, its nothing of the sort. One of the most depressing endings to come from hollywood in a long time.
Unlike most other people I also like AI, thought it was excellent
I like so many of Spielberg's movies, but in the end I had to opt for SPR I remember seeing it at the cinema...never ever has a movie affected me so much on the first viewing.
So many amazing movies, defo have to say IMO spielberg is the best director ever for me, just for the fact that so many of his movies are superb.
Looking at that list just makes me wanna see War of the Worlds even more
Strike another one up for Raiders.
Tough choice as I've enjoyed a lot of these movies, but I'd have to go with Jaws as the best for me.
There's no way I could pick my favourite as there are so many classics in that list (and also very different types of films).
Unlike some others I thought AI was top notch and quite enjoyed the ending, a typical Speilberg touch. I also really enjoyed Titanic
