While writing a uncharacteristically long-winded comment, I came up with this short list of my favorite movies that I rarely recommend. So let it be known that I absolutely love these movies, but I don't know if you will care for them in the least.
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Dancer in the Dark
Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
How to Draw a Bunny
The Killers (1946)
The Pillow Book
Buffalo '66 was good, Strange Days was ok, those are the only two I've seen.
So many people with taste seem to like Harold and Kumar. What's special about it?
Oh, that's a long list. I want to say it's a thinking man's Dude, Where's My Car? or Van Wilder.
It's kinda like a one night stand you have absolutely no regrets about.
Just see it in as altered of a state as you can.
All pretty much great. I think "Mind Game" (by same director) is much better than FLCL. I heard conflicting reports on Pillow Book and The Killers has een on my MUST SEE list forever. Strange Days and Existenz I am both iffy on but of course I love Harold and Kumar / Buffalo 66 / Baron Von Munchausen.
Alex cried in the theater when we watched Dancer in the Dark. I prefer Lar Van Trier's "The Kingdom".
Wow, seriously better than FLCL?
I have a FLCL shot glass, for god's sake.
My only other piece of merch is an Explosions In The Sky t-shirt.
All right, it's in the queue.
wtf is mkv? oh, matroska. whatever that means...
(Russian vocab word shoutout to Andrew!)
I think you will REALLY like Mind Game. It is one of my fav anime movies EVAH!!
MKV should play with VLC.
Yeah, try to come up with a list of favorite movies that you hesitate to recommend to other people though.
It's a shorter and much more interesting list.
It always depends on the person I am talking to and what their preferred genre is. Inevitably, making a generic "best of" list alienates the cult film gems.
For instance - I would put "Human Nature" FAR over Kaufman's other films but most people will say "Eternal Sunshine" or "Being Jon Malcovich" are his best.
how can you hesitate to recommend The Adventures of Baron Munchausen? I grew up with that movie and can watch it over and over again! Love it!
Yeah, but I'd sooner recommend something like Fargo, you know?
Sorry, about the multiple posts. This library computer is being super kooky.</i>
Okay, I put it in the queue.
Pootie Tang - Simultaneously the worst and bad movie ever . . . depending on how much alchohol you have in you.
