ACROSS THE BORDER
Where the banned are
Competes with Reservoir Dogs as Tarantino's best, but does beat it I think due to the brilliant dialogue and performances. Its one of my favourite movies, for sure.
Greatest movie of all time? Well, that's a tough one. Would I want to watch it with kids or someone older? No. Would I do that with 12 Angry Men or, say, Joe Vs the Volcano? Yes. Even with some of the dodgier bits in a movie like Love Actually, I'd not hesitate to introduce it to almost anyone.
My favourite film is, and probably always will be, Casablanca. Now that's what I call an old film!
It’s definitely in my top 10. I find it much easier to connect emotionally with old movies than with more recent ones.
I've mentioned this on here already (I think) but I watched this one during the Lockdown and thoroughly enjoyed it. It lived up to the hype!
I often think about what the greatest film of all time is, and honestly in the end it just comes down to my own likes and dislikes rather than an objective opinion.
Citizen Kane has always been the measuring stick for cinephiles, and after only two viewings I can fully understand why. Is it better than what's recently been cited as the greatest, in Vertigo, though? Sounds daft, but it depends what you like! I prefer Vertigo, but at the same time I think Rear Window is a more enjoyable film - does that mean this is the greatest? Probably not, but it almost always is the first that comes to mind.
I could go on here by talking about 12 Angry Men, The Godfather and The Godfather Part II, The Empire Strikes Back (not even joking here) and all sorts of other contenders, but I think you all get the picture.
Yeap. All we can talk about is favourites, really. Of course, A Streetcar named desire is the best movie ever made. But I’m sure there are many who will think, wrongly,
A mate of my youngest, mid-twenties, just got this done a couple of days ago. One of her favourite films.
Never seen it, I'll get my coat...
My friend was talking to a 22-yea-old girl the other day and Pulp Fiction came up. She said she hadn’t seen it because she doesn’t watch old movies.
@Tom Joad Scary.
I saw it when it first came out at the Glasgow Film Theatre. It blew my mind, and every time I re-watch it I just recall how brilliant it is.
I agree it’s Tarantino’s best movie, but that’s as far as I’m willing to go.
Definitely Tarantino's best, although I watched Inglorious Basterds again tonight and, man I gotta say it's close.
Now THAT'S what I call a good film.
@Jeannie Christoph Waltz gives the greatest acting performance of all time in it.
I got as far as them being in that room near the beginning. I'd seen a clip, knew something bad happened, knew I wasn't going to like it so went looking for something else. I found Mission Impossible 4 ... had missed an hour ... thoroughly enjoyed it. Much more my style of film.
