What may just be the best movie ever made.

Office Space. I'm watching it on Comedy Central. I fully endorse this movie, as it is just too cool. Kudos to Office Space!

Now where's my stapler.........

It is one funny comedy. Like the dream sequence, that was pretty funny.

Sure Citizen Kane is a "classic" and is an example of what "good motion picture making ought to be" with its spectacular use of "lighting and camera angles" and it's "engaging plot".


But does it have a rap soundtrack? Is it laugh out loud funny/stupid?? Does it have 3 guys beating up a copier/fax machine???

No, I didn't think so. :D

Citizen Kane is the best movie ever made in the US as an example of the filmaker's art and skill and is the all round winner.

The best Western ever made is The Outlaw Josey Wales.

The best land war film is Saving Private Ryan. The best sea war film is Battle of the River Plate. The best submarine war film is Das Boot. (Apocalypse Now is the second best comedy war film ever made, with Mash (the film) first.) The best air war film is Battle of Britain.

The best romantic film ever made is ..... who gives a sh*t about romantic films anyway?

Citizen Kane:rolleyes: , rosebud, rosebud. No offense but that movie put me to sleep. Wells should have left Hurst alone. In my humble opinion, the Shawshank Redemption is much better. Almost three hours went by and didn't even notice it. Made me realize I never ever wanted to go too prison. :eek:

One of the best war movies was made back in the 1930's. All Quite on the Western Front. The cinematography was out standing in a battle film of that time period. Well it's tied with four others, Saving Private Ryan, Full Metal Jacket, the Sand Pebbles, and BAT 21.

Best westerns: well four top my list eventhough thousands were made. Once Upon a Time in the West " true western film, but slow at first", The Wild Bunch "great western for turn of the century America", The Good the Bad and the Ugly" love that one, a mix of American Civil War and western showdowns", and last but not lease The Man who shot Liberty Valence " isn't truly a classic till the last five minutes of the film, plus, I like the Duke".:)'

Mysteries/ suspense: anything done by Alfred Hitchcock, he was and many would say still is the master of suspense.

Comedies: ummmm, Air Plane and AP2, Naked Gun ,Blazing Saddles, American Pie, MASH, DR.Strangelove, Major Leauge, and Office Space.:p

Sci Fi : Star Wars, Empire strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Star Trek the motion pic and the Wrath of Khan, The Day the Earth Stood Still, 2001 and 2012.

Car Movies: Smokey and the Bandit, Original "Gone in 60 sec" acting sucked but the stunts are amazing, Gone in 60 sec "the new one", American Graffiti, Grand Prix, Last American Hero, and Greased Lighting.

Mafia movies: God Father and GF 2, Good Fellas, Casino, and Reservoir Dogs

Romance: only three I like. Gone With the Wind , the original An Affair to Remember, and the Mexican.:D

Action films: Jarassic Park, Lethal Weapon 1 and 2 , Die Hard 1 and 2, Buillit, Excecutive Order, The Right Stuff, Apollo 13, Enter the Dragon, and Croutching Tiger, Hidden Dragon "wish they'ed spoken English". Chuck Norris movies and TV shows suck, I don't even know how he became an actor.:rolleyes: :eek:

Horror: Holloween, The Omen, The Exorcist, Friday the 13th.

Sports: Brian's Song, Rocky 1 and 2.

There's a 70's movie I haven't seen for ages called Vanishing Point, which isn't great but worth a look just for the end.

I forgot about that one. The guy is driving a 70/71 Mopar product. Can't remember what model it was. Maybe a Challenger, Cuda, or Charger, it was one of them. Yeah this crazy sheriff was after him in the middle of the desert. I remember the police radio kept broadcasting " he is supercharged, I repeat supercharged". Yeah love those late 60's early 70's trip films.

Also I forgot about two more of my favorite action flicks, Mad Max and Mad Max 2.

One of the features of Vanishing Point at the time was that it had in it a DJ who apparently had a following then in the US (Wolfman Jack?) who I think was commenting on the main character's run as it occurred.

I forgot Mad Max too. Made right here in sunny Australia with our very own Mel Gibson, who happened to born in the US of American parents, but we claim as our own anybody who does any good in the world. In its day, MM was a stunner. Love the car through the caravan scene.

On a different plane, Billy Jack was one of those odd films that the late 60's early 70's threw up and is unique for its style.

The Wild Bunch was brilliant, especially the slow-mo mayhem in the opening scenes. I always thought Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was overrated, not that it's a bad movie.

Now that I'm going back into my memory vault, it's hard to go past The Graduate as one of the stand-outs in the 60's.

Billy Jack, Maybe I was to young too understand that flick. Just about everyone I know in the generation before me all say what a great movie it was. I guess one would have to be 13yrs an older during that time period to understand it. Thought the acting was horrible but the fight scenes were fantastic.

Butch and Sundance is alright, lots of funny stuff in that film. Your right it is over rated. I guess it's because of Newman and Redford. Have you ever seen Hombre, great Paul Newman movie.

The Graduate is fantastic . I can't belive I forgot about that one.:o

I watched Midnight Cowboy and it was sick, made sick as well.

Easy Rider is a good 60's icon movie, fantastic soundtrack.

Also, I forgot about these two war films Patton and Tora Tora Tora. Two great flicks.....
