Default ...a must see movie (movie+TV shows discussion)

I always wanted to know how many great movies I actually saw....

It would be nice if you could write down a name of a movie that you consider to be the best one you ever saw and the one you would recommend to us all....

I'll start with the one that will surely be in everyones favourite list....

Pulp Fiction (1994)




Directed By: Quentin Tarantino
Screenplay: Quentin Tarantino, Roger Avary
Cast: Tim Roth, Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman

...A spectacular mix of explosive action and wickedly funny humor

Well, there's a lot of good movies well known to wide audience, but I would like to recomend one maybe not so known around the world:

Great master piece from Macedonia and director Milcho Manchevski:
"Before the Rain" from 1994, took Golden Lion in Venice and was nominated for Oscar. Great director, great screenplay, great actors, great photography, great music... Having all what movie art is all about. To enjoy it in full (photograhy, music...), should be watched in cinema, or at some good home theatre system.

If you're looking for pure art, this is it !

Briliant screenplay and maybe the lifetime performance by Rade Serbedzija !

1.Kill Bill
2.Star Wars(all of them)
3.American Beauty(i love this one)
4.Trainspotting(i just remembered this one and if i had 3 min ago it would be first place, wonderful masterpiece)
5.Raining man - the first movie that touched me deeply, just beautiful

of course all the Matrixes and Pulp fiction are on my list, i'm just mentioning some of the best ones you didn't yet.

If someone from Mars comes and asks me to tell him 3 movies to be seen it would be - ***8470;3, 4 and 5 (the Martians already know about the Matrix and Star Wars so... :wink: )

Nobody mentioned films of Woody Allen (many , many good films), Robert Altman (The player, Short cuts), Kieslowski (Dekalog) or Aldomodovar (Talk to her).Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs was exelent too.

well I really love the films that VinnieJones mentioned.
Ben Hur was really THE movie!

but no one saw some film of Federico Fellini? simply the best director of all time, the only bad thing is that if you see this movie in english for sure you lost something.

anyway if you didnt'see it, do it now :!:
