    What's your favorite movie?

    Good ol' mgtower posted this picture recently:



    Now I don't know how he got ahold of my family reunion photo album, but I'm glad he did.

    Actually, 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) is my favorite movie of them all. It really is. I haven't watched it in several years and I have it on DVD so tomorrow, I'm a-watching it. Thanks, mgtower! I'm looking forward to it.

    But I noticed there is no thread on this site asking for favorite movie. We have threads for favorite videos, favorite sports, and more. But not for favorite movie, that I've found. Hmm... So, what is your favorite movie? Do you have just one? I cannot mention just one. I have two. My close second favorite is John Carpenter's The Thing (1982). I always mention both in the same breath.

    How about if you tell us what your favorite movie is? I'm not looking for a contest of coolness here, just candor. No judgments made on your choice. I just wanna know. I'll probably see some variety out of this, who knows.

    But, I also ask to know why it is your favorite movie. Maybe a sentence or three. Not an analysis, though, and not a synopsis, nor a persuasion. Not those, please. For example, here's mine:

    2001: A Space Odyssey - I saw it in the theater when I was 12. There was so much for me to think about, many different and seemingly unrelated things as I did not understand much of it, but the detail and presentation blew me away. When the famous "jump cut" happened, I exclaimed "WHOA" out loud in the theater. The movie seemed important to me. Made a big impression on my kid mind that never wore off.

    John Carpenter's The Thing - It was scary and creative as the alien was unpredictable so I could not guess ahead like I have done in other movies. Kept me on edge.

    You can see from my reasons that I have not tried to explain the movies to you or "sell" them to you. I think I'm really asking what was its effect on you? Maybe that's too vague what I seek, but let's see what you say. Maybe you'll say it changed the way you look at something.

    Thanks.

    I HAD some favorite movies, but now when I rewatch them I get bored and annoyed, because now I can see all the background propaganda in plain sight and it will totally stop me from enjoying the movie itself.

    And I am not old enough to have watched any movie in which I couldnt identify any propaganda. Do note that I have a very very low threshold of tolerance. Even a minor blip of propaganda and I alt-f4 immediately.

    If I want to watch a movie and be entertained instead of annoyed, I'll just watch some esport. Havent watched any movie for past 3-4 years.

    I saw 2001 in a NYC bigscreen quadraphonic surround sound theater! Best movie experience of my lifetime! I refused to leave while the credits payed along with some classical music, my father let me watch the credits as everyone else left the theater.

    I saw "the yellow submarine" in the same theater! That night I had a nightmare when the "sea of holes" became my backyard and I had to tiptoe around them just to have another hole block my path to the house! It was my first memorable nightmare.

    Favorite movie? Hard to say, but I can watch Rollerball over and over again and not get sick of it. The rest I'm kind of sick of from all the shitty sequels that misalign with the original narrative, and as of late (past 20 to 30 years) they're chalked full of propaganda to the point of not being entertaining anymore, but rather a course in propaganda recognition and endless criticism. It's like watching liberal indoctrination bigscreen style! After the diehard series I started reading the ads on the busses in movies, and every one of them carry the party line from gun control to female superiority.

    Hollywood is dead, they can't get out of the way of their own political band standing! Now I don't buy movies with wondercunts on the cover doing wonderous things for their cause!

    I call them W-C's and find them (for the most part) in the discount pile where I say WC then toss them aside!

    Re: What's your favorite movie?

    There are so many movies I still like I find it hard to pick just one:

    The Life of Brian
    Blazing Saddles
    My Cousin Vinnie

    I could go on a bit, but note they’re all comedies.

    As for fond memories, when I was in my teens I would visit with my brother on a Saturday afternoon. We’d head down to the local video store and pick out two or three to watch, buy a load of sweets and cola and spend the rest of the day watching them. I was always on the lookout for a new Arnie movie like Commando or Red Heat, I couldn’t get enough of them.

    I would have to second that one. I love the ominous John Carpenter score in the beginning when they are chasing the "husky". I also love the practical effects when special effects were actually awesome!

    I was thinking the other day that with new movies, there needs to be a "woke" meter. It should be sorta' like a warning to the level of "wokeness" a movie has. That's all I think about now when attempting to watch a new movie. How much social justice propaganda is going to infiltrate this film? I can't say I've watched too many new movies because of that.

    As far as my favorite movie? That is too hard to tell. I will pick one that I love a lot and that is the 1984 James Cameron classic, "The Terminator". I love the film-noir look of the film, the 80's synth by Brad Fidel, and story. It also features Arnold Schwarzenegger as the terrifying and unstoppable terminator. He's intimidating and downright scary in that first movie! Then towards the end he starts resembling a zombie as his flesh is starting to rot. It's the stuff nightmares are made of. Speaking of nightmares, I've had a couple because of that movie. The part where he opens the sliding door and the boyfriend is asleep in the bed only to wake up just in time for the terminator narrowly miss his face with his fist. I would always get unnerving thoughts that someone would come in my room when I sleep and do me in. That movie probably contributed to that.

    This is a problem I also have, even with older movies. This is why tend to gravitate towards comedies – I can convince myself that the propaganda is intentionally part of the comedy and a slight intended against it.

    What I really can’t stand in modern flicks is the insertion of characters that have absolutely no bearing on the main storyline - they are there purely for the propaganda.
