Favourite Movies/Movie Makers/Actors (Work in Progress)

There are movies about which you find yourself thinking the next day. There are movies which you can watch a dozen times, a hundred times, and notice something new each time.

Here are a few movies I have watched a few times. I have enjoyed introducing others to them. Some of them are movies which I have bought and lent without caring whether I got them back (I could always buy another copy). Some of these movies develop ideas which are a million miles from my own mindset.

In no particular order, then, some of my favourites:

[It would be nice to have comments featuring your favourites. If you have watched a movie over and over, then there’s a good chance that I’ll find it worthwhile.]


Pulp Fiction: There are those who think that this is the greatest movie ever made. Well, it is a great movie. I’ve probably watched it more often than any other.

Secretary: A very very strange movie but compulsive.

Groundhog Day:

Green Mile:

Inglourious Basterds:

Reservoir Dogs:

Shawshank Redemption: This seems to be the whole movie in 14 parts, in 10 minute chunks. I assume this is legal?

Team America:

High Fidelity:

True Romance:

Fugitive: Tommy Lee Jones is stunning. Harrison Ford is very good.

Favourite Movie Makers

Cohen Brothers:

Quentin Tarantino:

Favourite Actors

A lot of the above favourites are favourites because they star actors who would be watchable if they were presenting detergent commercials. Acting talent is a difficult thing to analyse, even, I suspect, if you are a top director.

Harvey Keitel: The rest of this list is in no particular order but HK is at the top for a reason.

Tommy Lee Jones:

Christopher Walken: This is such a great scene that it seems churlish not to include...

Dennis Hopper:

Dustin Hoffman:

John Cusack:

Joan Cusack:

Harrison Ford:

Jamie Lee Curtis:

Kevin Bacon:

Sigourney Weaver:

Darryl Hannah:

Brad Pitt:

Meryl Streep:

Mia Farrow:

Uma Thurman:

John Travolta:

Samuel L Jackson:

Morgan Freeman:

Angelica Houston:

Faye Dunaway:

Robert Duvall:

Robert de Niro:

Bill Murray:

Maggie Gyllenhaal:
