To-Watch Movie List

weather: partly cloudy
outside: 9°C
mood: geeky
IMDB's Random Movie feature is really cool. I found a few really interesting movies that I'd like to see. Here's my running list with additions from everywhere:

And the ones I've already seen:

[ Good // Bad //  So bad that I refused to finish watching. // Icons from Rotten Tomatoes. ]

 40 Year Old Virgin — It was funnier than Wedding Crashers... slightly.
 Sin City — It's like watching a comic book. Ech.
 New Police Storyreview
 Shaun of the Dead — *sigh* Whatever.
 Wedding Crashers
 Be Cool — I fell asleep several times, during. Each time I woke up, it still wasn't done yet, so I went back to sleep.
 Star Wars: Episode III — I was in the theatre and I pretty much had to finish watching, otherwise this would have been rated
 The General's Daughter — A mediocre film, but it still made me jumpy for a while.
 King Arthurreview
 The Incredibles — LOTS OF FUN!! =)
 Man on Fire — I hated the first half; it got better when things started blowing up, but I had to leave. Must finish watching.
 VIFF2004: Good Morning Beijingreview
 Bourne Supremacyreview
 I, Robotreview
 Spiderman 2review
 Fahrenheit 9/11review
 The Chronicles of Riddick — I actually saw this in the theatre. What I saw of it was good... but I fell asleep through a great big chunk of the middle. So, exactly how good I thought it was, is quite indeterminate at this point.
 Van Helsingreview
 Mean Girls — It's pretty shallow, but amusing.
 Hellboy — Heehee, neat =)
 The Butterfly Effectreview
 Along Came Pollyreview
 Lord of the Rings: The Return of the Kingreview
 Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines — Meh. Whatever.
 The Matrix Revolutionsreview
 The Matrix Reloadedreview
 Scary Movie 3review
 2 Fast 2 Firiousreview
 VIFF2003: Wild Berriesreview
 To Kill a Mockingbirdreview
 Glengarry Glen Ross — I only watched to pick out Al Pacino's soundbytes from the prank call. The dialogue is very repetitive and droning.
 Phone Boothreview
 Gone in Sixty Seconds — Boring, unless you're into cars.
 Two Weeks Notice — Cute, but not as funny as I thought it would be. The best stuff was in the trailer. =P
 Die Another Day — Yeah, okay, whatever. Now I can say I've seen it.
 Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearlreview
 Zoolander — A few chuckles, but generally not my cuppa.
 Italian Job — Two thumbs... does my opinion count if I was just staring at Mark Wahlberg the whole time?
 Memento — Wow, that was a very different format, but it was a cool way to do it.
 Office Space — It was scary and funny how true to life this was.
 Boondock Saints — Willem Defoe!! HAHAHA =D
 Picture Perfect — Saw this one on TV; a bit over-the-top. Jay Mohr is cute and the Indian wedding looked very interesting. =)
 Pi — Um, that was... interesting... I think...
 My Neighbor Totoro (1993) — I've wanted to get this one on DVD for the longest time.
 Identity — [Personal Note: John Cusack; at least they didn't call it "Schizophrenia"]
 The Corereview
 8 Milereview
 Shanghai Knightsreview
 Bourne Identityreview
 Catch Me If You Canreview
 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secretsreview
 Lord of the Rings: The Two Towersreview
 My Big Fat Grssk Weddingreview
 The Ringreview
 Black Hawk Downreview
 Hedwig and the Angry Inchreview
 Serving Sarareview
 Austin Powers: Gold Memberreview
 Minority Reportreview
 The Othersreview
 Star Wars: Episode IIreview
 Moulin Rougereview
 Kiss of the Dragonreview
 Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stonereview
 Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ringreview
 Monsters Inc.review
 13 Ghostsreview

oh good! I am not the only person who has not seen Pi! I have been wanting to see that for the longest time but just never got around to doing so.

I love My Neighbor Totoro :) Studio Ghibli puts out some great films.

Hee, I tend to even miss a lot of the well-hyped movies, so it's not too strange that there are a zillion popular movies I haven't seen. =)

Happens to me all the time. I have not seen the Indiana Jones movies and every time someone finds that out they are quite offended ;-) I just tell them I will add it to my list which is growing quite long!

(I'll see your Indiana Jones...)

I keep meaning to watch the Indiana Jones movies, but every single time I've tried, I've totally conked, so I've never been awake through any of them. I remember him running away from the giant bowling ball scene, but that's it. =P

(... and I'll raise you a Star Wars.)

I haven't seen the original Star Wars trilogy. =\

Hey don't worry too much about Star Wars! I saw the trilogy for the first time ever just a couple of years ago. All my friends had seen it hundreds of times by then. ;-)

Defending Your Life is a great movie. Haven't seen Pi (but I want to, very much) or Deathwatch or Scorched. Totoro I didn't really care for. I've never actually seen the US version, just an undubbed/unsubbed Japanese copy, and I don't speak Japanese, so that might've had something to do with it. It was also given to us by Rachael's... "friend". And that DID have something to do with it. But honestly I don't think it was as interesting a movie in general as some of his other films. Mononoke was good, as was Spirited Away.

I always liked Defending your life... one of my favs.
May. 17th, 2003 02:09 am (UTC)
Whoa, so did you actually come up with Defending randomly? That would be the first instance of "psychic IMDB" that I've heard of...
May. 17th, 2003 11:58 am (UTC)
Oh no, that one I just picked because of the "take a piss!!!" thing =D

The IMDB Random picks from a pool of the most popular movies. =)

"The Count of Monte Cristo" is one of my mother's favorite books, and she got a DVD player just so that she could watch that movie (it came out first on DVD). She loved it.

I do recommend "Road to Perdition". It's heavy and sad, but well done. At least, I liked it.

Thanks for the input =)
