    im bored out of my fucking skull here peoples. so heres the deal (inspired by AFI's 5 songs......but not for each week.) Pick 5 movies and give a short description why each one kicks ass. the only rule is that they have to be non-porn.....for obvious reasons. and if its a movie that people have actually heard about its better i guess. so like.......no movies you made yourself or something at some art school.

    movie the fifth: Belly- because im going to live the life of a hustler one day and i needed a guideline. plust the filming is fucking incredible and they have a short part of gummo in it.


    movie the fourth: Boondock Saints- although im not much into religion, i can respect peoples spirituality and whatnot, but even without that this is a really well filmed movie relating to spirituality and redemption, plus its quite humorous and well filmed. go boondock saints.


    movie the thrice: Death to Smoochy- the only movie i ever thought highly enough of to see more than once in theatres, funny as a limbless retarded child rolling around smacking into things. edward norton is a very talented man, as is danny devito from time to time, so is robin williams, superb cinematics, awesome dialouge, fucking great, i laugh every time i watched it and as soon as it comes out on the 17th im watching it many times.


    movie the second: American Psycho- Funny as hell and on point. sarcastic. great filming. keeps my interest every time. and i can watch paul allen die over and over and over and still laugh. i've seen this probably 28 or so times since i bought it. great movie. if i ever get banned from here, ill be back as "Patrick Bateman" or something.


    movie the first: Fight Club- ok, this is where Tyler plays into the completely predictable part of this post and picks fight club for number one. right? right. i love this movie. words cant even describe. The book is just as good, all of chuck palahniuks books are good. superb filming, edward norton is again very talented, great all around movie on alot of levels i think.


    your turn.

    My turn...

    1. The Quick And The Dead
    There are some movies that you can only watch once a year and you get bored with them, but there are some movies that you can watch everyday. This is one that I could watch everyday.

    2. Princess Mononoke
    I always hated Japanimation. But this movie is fucking sweet. P.S.: Kodama

    3. The Man Who Wasn't There
    I love black and white films, but this takes it to another level. Made in 2001 and directed by the Coen brothers, TMWWT makes you feel like you are back in the late 40's.

    4. The Iron Giant

    5. Titus
    Beautiful cinematography. The end.

    I'm so obviously white.... In no particular order...

    Momento: Difficult to wrap your head around. Fucked up story, fucked up plot, fucked up actors.
    American History X: I'm a member of the klan... I mean, it was a sad ending and a triumphant turn of events for those confused and misguided teenagers.
    The Shawshank Redemption: ug. You have to see this one. Morgan Freeman is an amazing actor.
    Star Wars Episode 4: What started it all. The greatest sci-fi movie in all time.
    Tommy Boy: pure stupid comedy. Shame he had to die so young. Stay away from hard drugs I say.

    I'm not too good with explanations, so I appologize in advance for the crap below.

    5 - Harry And The Hendersons
    One of the first movies I remember enjoying when I was little. I guess this is just for nastalgia. Either way, I think it fucking rocks. I mean c'mon, a big foot living with humans!

    4 - Pleasantville
    I really didn't know what else to pick and I watched it last night so whatever... For me personally, it shows a nice conflict between a perfect black and white world where I would like to live and the colorful world that I need as well. I really don't know how to explain it. I suck.

    3 - Jaws
    I used to want to be a marine biologist when I was little and was always fascinated by Sharks. Maybe if I followed my dreams I'd be somewhere today, like on a boat looking for a shark....

    2 - Back To The Future
    As you have noticed by now, I really am no good with explanations.

    1 - Rad
    It's every riders dream no.. learning to backflip and assliding with Laurie Laughlin. I

    seven is up there. there were a lot of good movies in the '90s sad to say.

    Now it's just who has the best graphics, biggests stars, and thinest plot.
