2.Anchorman
3.The Prestige

And I gotta add one more

Goal 1 & 2.

I'm babysitting atm, god I f'ing hate kids. :lol:

EDIT: To be honest now that it comes to mind, I'd have to say Pan's Labyrinth in the Foreign Film category, or even fantasy globally.

EDIT: You can delete your posts can't you, Keeper?

Transformers is good, but FAR from contesting as a Top 50 movie of all time. You guys don't know movies. :P

yes very true. Transformers and 300 and all that are all fantasy films that are really childish and have no meaning or point to them. They are like a "one time watch forget about it" sorta film. they don;t make u think nor do they stay on ur mind.

has anyone seen apocalypto? i saw it last night on the computer for free! :D
it was good but i thought there were too many scenes where all I did was watch the slaves walking....but other than that it niiiiiiiice. any opinions?

In accordance with good movie standards... They don't always have to. That's what's called a basement concept movie, one that you have to think about and likely read into to "get" or enjoy. But surface level movies that you can understand at a shot, with a simple plotline, also known as high concept movies... Well, there's some gems of those, too. Ever hear of Jaws and Star Wars? They're high concept movies.

I would have thought that Basement concept would have been the superficial ones...

But regardless I will allways prefer the ones without just a simple plotline, funnily enough the ones that do this well are usually the ones based on books that have been carried out well.

Ex. LOTR, Terabithia, Children of men etc.

It's hard to understand, I know. :P Picture it as high and low detail movies. The higher detail ones are more "visible" and palatable to the general public, whereas the lower detail ones have to be more closely examined to be appreciated.

However, there are also a large volume of book-based movies that suck. Out of those, as movies, if I were to be ranking them on an all time list, LOTR would probably be in the 20's, Children of Men not far behind, and Bridge to Terabithia would possibly be back in the 80-90's region.

I'm not saying they're the best ones, but for me at least, the best movies are those that are decent adaptations of really good books. If there was a movie that could completely bring a good book to life it'd probably be my favourite.

Oh sure, sure, me too. I was just ranking them personally. If they could do an excellent The Pearl (Not that sh*t one from the 40's.) then I would be appeased. I would not have to see another movie ever again.

I totally forgot about children of men, that would probably numero tres for me, it is a amazing movie, I still don't get how they did the continueous shoots.

But I dont like LOTR, it is 2 hours of crap to watch a cool fight, and they didn't even stay true to the books.
