    No, that's "The Return of The Jedi". Its not bad and has its moments, but its a rip off of the plot of "A New Hope"in many ways, and plays to the kids a little too much.

    Ah, but if I was as young as yourself, then maybe I'd think the same. I bet you don't watch Sesame Street anymore. ;)

    Oh, and here is what P66 Posted about your favourite Star Wars movie, which proves my point ...

    Some good choices, JSR.

    Its hard to narrow down anything like movies, or songs, games, etc to a list of just ten.

    How about Dances With Wolves, The Patriot, Last of the Mohicans.

    And then theres always the classics, like Dumb and Dumber. HeHe.

    Re: my ten

    Seven Samurai is the original, did you watch it? If not, do it as soon as you can. It's an hour longer than the American Magnificent Seven.

    That's one of my choices for the best movie soundtrack ever. Along with Indiana Jones and Star Wars.

    Blade Runner is a great soundtrack. Unbeatable.

    Give him a break, eh? He's only 14.

    To tell the truth, I am impressed by his intelligence and articulate nature, for one so young.

    There should be more kids like him in the world (i.e interested in computers, books, etc), than there are. I hope my sons have similar interests.

    And you could easily call my film choices immature too.

    My remarks weren't mean't to be taken as critisism. Simply pointing out some facts.
    Would you rate Mortal Kombat, or Gone in Sixty Seconds, as good films, with a good plot? Exactly.

    And yes, --agissi-- is very bright and mature for his age. ;)

    You don't need to point out the fact that a 14 year old is young compared to you or me. That goes without saying. Lighten up, eh?

    i think

    it's a generation thing......to what degree it impacted your life, and what experience you have to draw from as your basis for your selection.......so, it's a matter of perspective......oh, and phant, nic,........if you guys would give your height weight and reach, we can start pooling the odds for a donnybrook :grinthumb

    Nic TechSpot Paladin Posts: 1,928

    I think you are misunderstanding things. :blush:

    The point is that as we grow older our tastes become more sophisticated, and we look for more meaning from films (etc). Age was in this case the whole point, and not a critisism. I think you also need to lighten up a little P66. :)

    I'm sure --agissi-- didn't take things the wrong way. We get along just fine. ;)

    Besides, I didn't mention his age. You did.
  15. Abraxas

    Re: i'm half japanese

    I'm living in Germany and I haven't seen any German movie there is... ;)

    I forgot another great score:
    Terminator 2

    Great action movie, btw. It's one of the very few which provides for deeper involvement than just action and entertainment.

    good point

    thx for the recommendation, abraxas........i guess what i meant was, that it was a folk tale then, and, fairly popular.............in other words, there we're seven samurai even before the movie.......way back then

    ---agissi--- TechSpot Paladin Posts: 2,383   +15

    :cool: *I think we're all lightened up a little bit* :cool:

    Heh, thanks for the age remarks guys :eek:

    I dont think Mortal Kombat had a good plot, but I think the fight scenes make up for it :p

    I totally agree - your probbly right. BTW JSR, whats a "donneybrook" ??
  20. StormBringer

    In no particular order:

    1) Evil Dead trilogy
    2) Twin Peaks "Fire Walk With Me"
    3) Lost Highway
    4) Highlander (the first one)
    5) Star Trek 2
    6) Aliens 2
    7) High Plains Drifter
    8) Pulp Fiction
    9) The Thing
    10) Maximum Overdrive

    I'm sure I left some out, it was hard to choose ten.
    An honorable mention should go out to all the B5 movies, while they were never cinema features, which I assumed made them not applicable here, I think they, along with the B5 series were some of the greatest works of art ever to grace a television.

    Well, I like most of the ones mentioned and, unless I missed it being mentioned, one of my favorite cult movies "Eating Raoul" If you haven't seen it I suggest you hunt it down.
