What movie is a 10/10?

  1. Nathan Lane: I was adorable once, young and full of hope. And now look at me! I'm this short, fat, insecure, middle-aged THING!

  2. Was gonna say this, but you beat me too it, and after being on a jury myself, I think it is one movie that everyone should watch. It's a great analysis of human behaviour and different perspectives in a relatable situation with real life consequences. Amazing movie, 11/10.

  3. Lilo & Stitch. I can’t think of anything else Disney has done that dives deep into a serious life issue with realistic rawness except Zootopia and a few of the Pixar movies. Lilo is one of the most realistic animated children protagonists with all her little quirks and you can feel and see how hard Nani is trying to balance sisterhood and parenthood. It also functions well without a villain like an evil stepparent or foster parent. It’s just a social services agent who realizes the tragedy of the situation. Even with comedy from the aliens, it successfully balances the tone and allows you to realize the tragedy and rawness of the situation.

  4. My favorite movie of all time. Aliens always gets mentioned, but the original was always the best. Sci fi horror at its best.

  5. A movie that was in pretty much a single room also that I really enjoyed was called The man from Earth. Not a ton of people have seen it though.

  6. Aside from Jack and Nurse Ratchet, Cheswick (Sydney Lassick), Harding (William Redfield), and Billy (Brad Dourif) all gave incredible performances, with Danny Devito and Christopher Lloyd playing lesser roles, no less

  7. Underrated quote from a movie teeming w them. I love every time Clue gets brought up in a thread. Spent a good part of my childhood trading lines from it w my sister (bigtime bonding vehicle).

  8. I am so happy to see someone say this. Genuinely one of my favorite movies of all time. It's so funny and so quotable. If I recall correctly it flopped at the box office when it came out and I'll never understand why.

  9. I’m so glad someone said this. One of my all time favorites. I have seen it too many times to count and it never gets old. Still makes me laugh as hard as the first time.

  10. I always cackle when they shuffle from room to room to find the bodies of the motorist, cop, and singing telegram all with looks of being absolutely fucking done with the whole situation.

  11. I think of Jerry every time I have to scrape ice off my windshield. That scene, where everything is just so desperately wrong and he just wants to leave in his car but he can’t get the ice off his windshield, and even though he’s angry and breaking down he has no choice but to scrape the ice off. I really identify.

  12. As genius as this movie is, my favorite scene in the whole thing is a throwaway scene of no consequence where they interview one of the locals.

  13. Perfect casting and nearly line-by-line faithful to Stephen King’s novella. I consider it one of his best works and it was incredibly gratifying to have it done justice on film. I could say much the same for Shawshank, but The Body/Stand By Me gets the edge.

  14. The sense of dreary dread throughout the movie is absolutely fucking perfect. The movie is absolutely fantastic.

  15. “Cause Chevy didn't make a 327 in '55, the 327 didn't come out till '62. And it wasn't offered in the Bel Air with a four-barrel carb till '64. However, in 1964, the correct ignition timing would be four degrees before top-dead-center.”

  16. ....the other day you told me that train hardly ever comes through here at 5 o'clock in the morning...

  17. Rewatched with the kid - then 15 - a couple of years ago. Was tentative about it, because so many movies from the ‘80s and ‘90s that we loved (and quoted over and over and over) pale when watched now.

  18. My grandma (I think she didn't know any better) took me to the movies when I was about 13 to see a double feature of silence of the lambs and terminator 2. What a day.

  19. I still marvel at the scene where Salieri is looking over Mozart's music and is hearing the music in his head as he is reading the notes. Can people really do that?

  20. The research station at the South Pole has an annual tradition... at the start of the winter-over, when they're totally isolated and it's always night, the whole crew gets together and watches The Thing and The Shining back to back.

  21. In my opinion this is the best horror movie and one of the best movies ever made. It’s got everything - a great cast of characters, gruesome special effects that still hold up, aliens, a banger of an ending… I cannot overstate how much I love this movie.

  22. Kilmer’s performance in this film is the greatest performance of all performances which we’re NOT given an Oscar nom. It’s also better than several that were.

  23. Val Kilmer totally stole the show there. Everyone did a great job, but his performance was legendary.

  24. Fun fact: Spielberg created Indiana Jones because he wanted to direct a James Bond film but got turned down, so he decided to essentially build his own. So Bond was, in a metaphorical sense, Indy's father.

  25. “He used a razor and he used to slice it so thin that it would liquefy in the pan with just a little oil. It was a very good system.”

  26. They didn't look very good; they look beat up. The stuff they wore were thrown together and cheap, a lot of pantsuits and double knits.

  27. We watched this in school when we were learning about DNA and I was the only person that LOVED it. We ran out of time and because the class was so unenthused we never finished it. I’ve never seen the ending to this day! But I loved it.

  28. 11/10 would go back in time to watch it for the first time again. Still blows my mind it's 4 years older than me watching it nowadays. Best movie of all time.

  29. I loved Mel Brooks comment when a reporter said: ‘you couldn’t have made that in (current year)?’ Brooks: ‘we couldn’t then, but we did it anyways.’ I’m paraphrasing but you get the point.

  30. "Okay, Jim, since you are my guest and I am your host, what are your pleasures? What do you like to do? "

  31. I have seen it dozens of times, including all the dvd extras. Some of the best satire to come out of the twentieth century in any art form, in my opinion.

  32. You’ve got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know… morons.

  33. Spirited Away was the first Japanese film I ever watched. I thought it was OK but I didn't understand the hype. Later on I watched My Neighbor Totoro, and it struck a chord. It was much more light-hearted and whimsical. Because of that connection I had the first time, it's my favorite of the Ghibli movies. Spirited Away is a better movie, now that I've watched it a few more times. I can't ignore how awesome the first time watching My Neighbor Totoro when ranking them though.

  34. Listen, strange redditors lying in comments sections is no basis for a system of upvotes. Supreme internet power derives from a mandate of the masses not some farcical upvote ceremony.

  35. My whole life changed when I saw the coconut halves in Patsy's hands, I laughed so damn hard when that hit me. Been obsessed with Comedy ever since.

  36. Was thinking are these people serious? We dine well here in Camelot. We eat ham and jam and spam a lot. So why not Monty Python 🤣🤣

  37. I will live, breathe, and die on this hill. The way that film captures the magical idea of dinosaurs being real, and a theme park where you can visit them! John Williams' score really sets the tone, and as the film goes on you get little breadcrumbs as to why that idea may not be so good...

  38. I was about 12 years old and happened to live on the island of Kauai while it was being filmed. I’ve never been so excited for anything to come out as I was for that movie. Got to see a lot of the places where things were filmed obviously.

  39. I’m reminded of the sheer POWER of the scene, watching in the theater as a ten year old kid, when the T. Rex stepped from its paddock into full view for the first time and roared. I was simply mesmerized.

  40. The Mummy is what got me into Egyptology which got me into archaeology. I start a job as a field tech next week!

  41. We watched and analyzed this in a college film class if that means anything to it being a “perfect film”

  42. Oh shit. When this movie first came out we had never seen anything like it. It's worth reposting a comment from a few months back just to talk about how great the first time viewing experience was.

  43. I’m amazed at how well the fight choreography still holds up and is even better than a lot of newer movies, they truly don’t make ‘em like they used to.

  44. The original Back to the Future. Original idea to start with, flawless screenplay where everything happens for a reason, entire last half-hour full of payoffs.

  45. One of my favorite movie jokes in in there. Twin pine mall turning into pine mall when Marty returns be a use he ran over one of the pines in the past.

  46. This script is so airtight that it’s used in many film classes. It’s widely considered to be a perfect movie.

  47. Wall-E, god the opening, like, 30 minutes. No dialogue just pantomimes and beeps and it is such incredible storytelling.

  48. Shake a leg Junior! Thank God your mammy died givin' birth. If she'd have seen you, she'd have died o' shame.
