Day 26 – A movie that you love but everyone else hates
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

Robin_hood_1991


Yeah, it's not a great film in a lot of ways but it does feature Alan Rickman *and* Morgan Freeman, which is a double bonus. :)

Day 25 – The most hilarious movie you’ve ever seen
The Music Box

the-music-box-poster

Yet another classic and Oscar winner. In which Mr. Laurel and Mr. Hardy are hired to deliver a player piano...

Day 23 – Favorite animation
The Last Unicorn

Last_unicorn

I just adore this movie! Can I just add that as much as I admire Disney in many ways (and yes, even though their films often get Oscar nods *and* wins) I am so thankful they did not get their hands on this one!



The main song from the film. Beautiful. (And if I ever happen to visit you, please don't play it for me unless you want to see me dissolve into a puddle of tears. Yes, really.)

Day 22 – Favorite documentary
Looking For Richard (1996)

Looking_for_richard

I actually picked this out early so that I would not have to spend hours trying to think of a documentary. (I did that with a few other films too because nothing is more frustrating than trying to remember something for a specific film when you are wanting to post and just draw a complete blank.) But honestly? I did not even *think* of today's date in conjunction with this meme. I mean seriously, it's a meme someone else made up; I just copy/pasted it. (I didn't do it last month because the month was more than half-over.)

*Anyway* -- given that next year will be the 20th anniversary for the film, I imagine that they will probably re-release it on dvd/blu-ray and maybe add some extras in there as well.

Day 19 – Favorite movie based on a book/comic/etc.
Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Man, Thor... basically *most* of the current MCU (and finally! an easy one to answer! ;)
GOTG-posterTheAvengers2012Poster

Heh, yeah I suppose I am cheating just a little but it's too hard to single any one of the films out. I've basically loved all of the films (with the notable exceptions of IM3, TDW and AoU, which I have already discussed elsewhere.) I hope that next year's releases will be more "fun".

Day 17 – A movie that disappointed you the most
Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)

WillyWonkaMoviePoster

Again, this is a movie that didn't disappoint me as much as I finally gave up on ever seeing it.

But let me tell you why...

Day 16 – A movie that you used to love but now hate
Forrest Gump

Ok, I never really loved it but somewhere along the way, I just got fed up with it.

Day 15 – A character who you can relate to the most
Junior Del Mar (Brokeback Mountain, 2005)



I tried to find a decent still pic of Kate Mara as Junior but I could only find this clip.

Day 14 – A movie that no one would expect you to love
The Godfather

Godfather_ver1

It's an unusual choice but it really is a great movie. Yet oddly enough, I don't really care for other gangster movies. Go figure, eh?
la_samtyr: asian art drawing of sleeping cat (zen cat)
Day 13 – Favorite adaptation film
The Maltese Falcon

MalteseFalconm


Again, one of the classic films I grew up with and loved. It's a great film that works so well that it still seems fresh.

Day 11 – A movie that changed your opinion about something
Brokeback Mountain

Brokeback_mountain

(I'd go into detail but my computer is having a tantrum after my kitteh flounced across the keyboard. Sorry.)
la_samtyr: asian art drawing of sleeping cat (zen cat)
Day 10 – Favorite classic movie
Rebel Without A Cause

Rebel_without_a_cause432

One of my earliest favorites. And one of the first really cool actors I fell in love with. So much promise... Back in the days when I had cable, I used to love watching this and his other films (and many other classics, obviously.)

Day 9 – A movie with the best soundtrack
A Hard Day's Night



I love this film and I think it's why I love movies in general so much. It captures a time and a place that is gone forever -- yet it can be revisited again and again. But to be honest, when I watch it, it breaks my heart just a little bit. To be that young again and so hopeful and optimistic; anyone born after 1970 can never really understand what life was like then. It was hardly perfect by any means but... at the same time, I think it was probably the last I ever felt *whole*.

Day 8 – A movie that you’ve seen countless times
PotC: Curse of the Black Pearl

potc-1

I've loved pirate movies ever since I first saw "Captain Blood" (featuring Errol Flynn) way back in the old days. It's probably when I developed my love of tall ships too and there you have it. And of course PotC 1 hits all of the right notes with me, in the best sort of way. The leads are all first rate and the vast number of supporting players are all great too. (It's also the absolute best of the four; as far as any additional films in the franchise... well, just have to wait and see...)

Day 6 – Favorite science fiction movie
Blade Runner

Despite multiple re-cuts and edits, this is still one of my all-time favorites *ever*. (And don't worry, there are more sci-fi/fantasy movies to be mentioned yet.)

Day 1 – Best movie you saw during the year

TBD (To Be Decided)

I'm actually going to post my decision sometime in December.

This has not been a great year for movies. At least, not in my very humble opinion. I did see "Avengers 2" but I wasn't very happy with it. (Refer back to my review in June for my reasons why.) I haven't seen any this summer either because (a) semi-broke and (b) the best films are held back until late October/early November so they can catch the best Oscar buzz.

So, we'll just have to wait and hope something good shows up.

Btw, I've added my "Avengers 2" review under the cut since the original entry is f-locked.

Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] testa_dura:

SUPPOSEDLY if you've seen over 85 films on this list of 239, you have no life. Copy this list, post to your LJ and paste this as a note. Then, put +'s next to the films you've seen, add them up, and use your number as the header.

Note: Personally I don't think much of this list because there isn't enough variety. If I haven't seen one of a series/franchise, it's not bloody likely I'll see the others. Just sayin'.
