just wanted to see the taste of people here and share some of mine, perhaps i can even find a new favorite in the replies.
gotta put my vote in for Lord of the rings as the the best trilogy to this date.
to the point i even started re watching it again, return of the king is next on the copping block on sunday, the extended edition with 4 hours and 22 minutes.
i just find it to be everybody involved at their best, the performances, peter jackson, the costumes, the locations, it all just fits together so well.
Ring (リング, 1998), just a classic that just cant be beat by the numerous other iterations and remakes.
superhero movies: probably the one everybody else and their mother knows about, infinity war
new police story 2004, i just love the more serious tone the movie has including the insanity that it neatly woven into it.
Top favorite is always hard…
If i’m thinking about movies that i have zero doubts of being on top:
The Matrix (trilogy)
Innovations, visuals, graphics, soundtrack - is all nice and well, but what i really value extremely high is deep philosophy behind it, every move and every word.
It is XXl cenutry Bible, if you know what questions to ask - you’ll certainly find relevant answers there.
Enter the void
For it’s radical new form of audio/visual language. Yes you can argue that it’s started in Irreversible and continued in Gaspar Noé’s next works - but that is something else, perfected to nearly alien level of communication.
I can name tons more of genius or just good movies that i love, but i focused here only on revelations, radically different experiences
