Your best and worst ever Film/Movie....
To compliment the best/worst TV programme thread I thought I would put this question forward, although it may well have been done before!

Was one of three for me as the best. Back to the Future and JAWS share second place with Hitchcock's Rear Window still my favourite film of all time. The worst by far has to be a god awful effort called Movie 43. So bad I didn't even finish it. So many stars in it though so they either got paid a fortune or had no idea what dross they had agreed to.

Ingemar Bergman's The Seventh Seal was a classic when I was in my teens. Many regarded it as the best film ever made.
Worst: Rocky 4 would be a competitor

If you like Jaws there are some good documentaries, albeit a few years old now, on You Tube. What fascinates me is that the whole thing could have been a complete disaster and vey nearly was. Spielberg could have been finished. Over budget, over time, the shark didn't work and yet that actually helped it become the classic it became.

Best
The Sting
LA Confidential
The Apartment
A Few Good Men


Worst
Out of Africa. 3 and a half hours (well it seemed like it) wasted on a friday night before you could take booze into the cinema. Hideously dull

Re: Your best and worst ever Film/Movie....
My all time favourite is Jaws. Every aspect of the film is superb, outstanding performances by all the cast but Robert Shaw is immense in it.

I'm also into gritty America cop films of the 70's, Serpico and The French Connection are 2 of my favourites.

Other films that I will always watch are Back to the Future, Jurassic park original.

I also love foreign films, Jean de Florette is a masterpiece, Betty Blue, Battle Royale, Heimat, Das Boot. There's probably lots I've missed.

Worst films, I always forget them quickly.

The Swimmer starring Burt Lancaster was a great film with one of the most heartbreaking endings I have ever seen.

Re: Your best and worst ever Film/Movie....
I would like to add Northern Sold's favourite film and that is A Man for All Seasons

No it's not action packed but the dialogue is superb driven mainly by Paul Scofield's depiction of Sir Thomas More's refusal to bend to King Henry VIII wish to marry Anne Boleyn.

It is superb and Scofield was rightly given an Oscar for his portrayal. of More.

Re: Your best and worst ever Film/Movie....
Arsene, agree that all three of them were great, but the third one really stood out for me.

It's hard to write about it without sounding all arty-farty, and I usually hate all that 'this film is true art' bollocks.

But that third one, especially when he was up at that quarry, those scenes, and then throwing all his written words away. I was fucking spellbound by it, like no other film has done to me. That WAS true art' and don't care if I sound like a pretentious wanker writing it.

Ditto, I never used to know why people went on about things like 'lighting' in films, until seeing A Canterbury Tale, which is a beautiful film.

Best: Winters sleep (Turkish Palme D'or winner a few years ago)

Worst: Any of the Star Wars films with Ewan McGregor in it.

Manuel - yeh, definitley a cult film... very quotable. I used to have a Mk2 Jag and very difficult to resist the temptation to wind down the window and shout 'slappers'...

Re: Your best and worst ever Film/Movie....
Normally. Tak Miike and I are at loggerheads about most things. But sometimes our stars cross. Like a working and a stopped clock.
I put The Big Lebowskinas did he as its a film I never bore from. In fact it gets better and better. It has a thousand quotes that never tire.

Mostly when I saw it when it was released I was blown away and recommended to my mum and sister who went to see it. They were confused. When I saw it the second time I hadnt realised the absolute profanity of it.

All in all a slice of the greatest genius you’ll find in film making and story telling

Re: Your best and worst ever Film/Movie....
Picking a best is quite difficult and can easily change depending on your mood. A bit easier to have a top 5.

Just because I've been doing jury service I decided to re-watch 12 Angry Men. Simply brilliant.

The worst by a country mile is Broken Flowers with Bill Murray. I think it's the only film I've seen where there was literally nothing at all in it of any value.

Good shout, but all the Apu trilogy were great, also Kashejunghana Ray's first colour film was brilliant too
