Did anyone not cry during Hachi?

Really looking forward to following this thread. I'm in the process of further expanding my movie watching horizons so this will give me lots to watch.



Mr. Minio makes the rules in this thread. If he wants to lump together the Twilight Saga, he can do it. If he wants to put the Michael Bay discography as a single entry, it's his prerogative. This is a Mr. Minio world, you all are just living in it.
Absolutely. I was simply voicing out my objection.

I'm expecting to have heard of about one film per set.
Really? You're more optimistic than I am.

Platoon 7/10
Se7en 8.5/10
Life of Others 8.5/10
A Separation 8.5/10
Lawrence of Arabia 7/10

Se7en is the one I'd rewatch, but A Separation is the best amongst them in my opinion

160. James Bond Franchise


Where's your God now, gandalf26?

159. In a Lonely Place


I think I liked it more than the other Ray film I've seen.

158. Wenecja


Ex aequo with Jańcio Wodnik.

157. Vedreba


Poetic image about a Georgian poet.

156. Przesłuchanie


Very powerful film and my favourite Janda performance.

155. The Dante Quartet


Yay for the flickering colours!

154. 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days


An ascetic view on the problem of abortion.

153. Inglorious Basterds


Post-modernist Nazi farce. "
Bon jorno. "

152. Star Wars


Best space opera ever.

151. Vertigo


Hitchcock is 151. on my list? Good place to me.

Star Wars and Vertigo are classics I love.

My wife wasn't liking Inglourious Basterds so I shut it off-need to get to it again.

Bond is a strange franchise for me; I always look forward to the movies, but then I'm always a little bored and disappointed.



Vertigo, Inglourious Basterds and In A Lonely Place are all
films for me. Star Wars is great too, and I love the James Bond franchise, good stuff.

By the way where do you watch all these foreign films, do you deliberately seek them out as an art house fan or are they shown on local tv/cinemas?

I wish they were showing such films. I mean, they do in certain independent cinemas in big cities, but living in a small town I'm done. There's a TV station called TVP Kultura, which shows some arthouse flicks, but I mostly seek these films myself in order to develop my tastes and hobby.

I'd have added a lot more, all the way to 100 today, but I've got serious Internet issues, so I can't do it.

150. Lost in Translation


Loneliness in a big city. Beautiful cinematography and My Bloody Valentine in soundtrack. I'm sold!


149. Cemetery without Crosses



Spaghetti western from France with cool ending.

148. Found Memories


Brazilian film, which tells a story very slowly using cinematography, dialogs and masterful music.

147. The Ascent


Really grim Soviet film from Larisa Shpepitko, the wife of Elem Klimov.

146. Fear Eats the Soul


Atypical couple struggles to be together despite the malevolence of society.

145. Sleeping Beauty


"
Rise up and walk, none of your bones are broken."

144. Farewell My Concubine


It's a trap! See? That's why Communists didn't want them to perform. No, I'm just kidding.

143. Before Sunrise


"
If there's any kind of magic in this world... it must be in the attempt of understanding someone, sharing something. I know it's almost impossible to succeed... but who cares, really? The answer must be in the attempt."

142. Belle de jour


She forgot her lipstick. Oh what a tragedy!

141. Judgment at Nuremberg


Watch Polish movie Epilog Norymberski too as well. It's just as good as this one.

140. Szerelem


Love can survive everything. Is it true?

139.
La vie nouvelle

Very rarely so minimalistic film is so disturbing and dark.

138. Teorema


No matter whether you hated or loved (you're sick!) Passolini's Salo, give this one a try anyway. It's much better and not as disturbing.

137. Funeral Parade of Roses


Hands on the table! It's a trap! What a fun ride through Japanese quirkiness, though.

136. Titus


Romans driving cars and listening to jazz music? Awesome!

135. The House is Black


Debut and already such a film? Masterful! Some directors try their whole life to do something as good and fail miserably!

134. Lady Snowblood


Forget Kill Bill. This is the real deal!

133. Le Trou


If you don't watch this movie before all the sand is at the bottom, the guy will kill you. I mean it!

132. The Second Circle


Russian Ark is technically more impressing (shot in one take!!!) and visually stunning, but this movie is bleakier and sadder, so I prefer it more.

131. Niewinni czarodzieje


Forget Kanał and Popiół i Diament. This is my favourite Wajda movie!

130. Heroic Purgatory


If you've seen this movie you're awesome! It's visually breathtaking and thematically quirky and undefined. Just as I like it.

129. Hausu


It's so visually striking it feels like somebody makes a blowjob to your eyes! (see the picture)

128. Sunset Blvd.


She saw the film in only 128.

127. Code Blue


The movie portrays a great loneliness and desire to end it, even if it's risky and wrong.

126. Drive


It's oozing with style. Synthpop and badassity never get old.

125. Django


Possibly the most badass character ever. Compared to him Fox is but a whiny brat.

124. Valerie and Her Week of Wonders


Period problems with vampires and stuff! I wonder why is it so low on my own list.

123. Rome, Open City


My favourite neo-realism movie so far. Very realistic, obviously.

122. Le samurai


"
I never lose. Never really. "

121. Cria cuervos


¿ Por qué te vas ?




I have seen Lost In Translation which is pretty good although I don't love it as much as some, Drive and Sunset Boulevard which are great fims, and The House Is Black which is no doubt a great achievement but I don't really think of it as a 'entertaining film' but a serious commentary on a human issue, and I found it quite difficult to watch.



Some great films there...and some that I can't even find on IMDb because you refuse to gives us their years. Which Sleeping Beauty is that?


EDIT: nevermind, I see it's the new-ish one.



Lots of good stuff, but I'd like to second The House is Black, stunning documentary

Bright light. Bright light. Uh oh.
I've only seen 39 (60%) and I couldn't find every one on IMDb. What a bunch of non-mainstream crap I'll have to watch now.
