This is what I use sites like letterboxd for. Although I also keep a main excel spreadsheet as well

That doesn't help with movies I saw 25 years ago, though.

Okay well I'll probably be ready to go around sunday evening. You can follow my pace or go at your own. Reiterating that this is pretty low effort which is why it's happening pretty soon

You think yours is low effort, mine is just a straight list.

I thought about doing that, especially with Yojimbo/Sanjuro and the Samurai Trilogy since I watched those one after the other anyway and I don't have a real preference for one movie over the other(s). Maybe if I was commenting on them I would have but since it was just a list I decided to keep it exactly at 100, which is why Kill Bill 2 wasn't there as, unlike those other movies I much prefer the first film to the second.

Might look up directors later... but decades is easy enough to do. Or at least I thought it was until Ctrl+f:194/195/etc kept giving me 99 results. I didn't copy the year with Rumble in the Bronx, apparently.

Edit: Seems kind of strange that I've mostly not enjoyed movies from the 70s as much compared to everything else, but my top movie lands there.

Maybe sometimes Ill post clips as well in lieu of writeups. Ive found that the most surefire way to get me to actually watch a movie that Ive never heard of is to see a small part of it that makes me want to go check it out rather than having someone just recommend it to me saying its good in which case I would put it on my watchlist and forget about it. Will try to not post anything toooo spoilery but if you had plans to watch any of these as blind as possible might as well avoid them altogether.

Top 100

#100: Sound of Noise (2010)

A group of frustrated drummers commit some crimes to JAM OUT in public.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDYBK4m8VUM

#99: Space Jam (1996)

The fact that this movie even exists at all is so bizarre but I am grateful for it.

#98: ' / The Tribe (2014)

Im not going to say anything else about this movie.

#97: Tokyo Fiance (2014)

This ones due for a rewatch but an interesting look at racial/cultural fetishization.

#96: Pitch Perfect (2012)

Theres a lot of intended and unintended cringe moments and some parts are just downright stupid but there are also certain parts that I keep coming back to this movie for and those are great. Pretty sure Ive watched some parts over at least 50 times. I always think about that one youtube comment (or wherever else it actually was) saying This movie tricked an entire generation into thinking acapella was cool.

#95: Bonnie & Clyde (1967)

Honestly dont remember too much about this one besides thinking Faye Dunaway was amazing in it so its pretty high on my rewatch prio list but I was extremely high on this movie for quite a while after I watched it.

#94: Funny Games (2007) Michael Haneke

Absolutely maddening. There was a significant range of emotions felt while watching but anger was pretty constant. Havent seen the original but considering this version is a shot-for-shot remake by the same director, I dont feel quite as rushed to see it.

#93: Tickled (2016)

A fascinating documentary about the world of competitive tickling competitions and the rabbit hole it leads down for the filmmaker.

#92: Lost in Translation (2003) Sofia Coppola

Still thinking about My Bloody Valentine.

#91: / A Bittersweet Life (2005)

Mainly on here for how fucking cool Lee Byung Hun is in this.

(Part of Opening Sequence)

Outside of the ones watched via this topic the only movie I've seen from that crop is Space Jam and, while I don't really remember much about the movie, I have a distinct memory of it because some kid from school yelled out the n word during it.

I had Funny Games higher last year but I moved it down because it's not something I'm as keen to rewatch because it's so brutal

Space Jam is just mindblowing in the "this is really a movie" kind of way. Like they really got Michael Jordan with the Looney Tunes. Although my fav part is probably the scenes of the other basketball players losing their skill and forgetting how to play.

#90: Ratatouille (2007)

Despite having some of the most legitimately disgusting scenes Ive seen in an animated film, its a delight showcasing the best culinary mind of our generation.

#89: Hunger (2008) Steve McQueen

Michael Fassbender as the IRA member who led a hunger strike in prison. The commitment to the role on display is incredible.

#88: Kick-Ass (2010)

Just really trashy fun. Favorite Nic Cage role by far.

#87: Mommy (2014) Xavier Dolan

I really wanted to recommend this for the topic because it is certainly a movie with one scene being so incredible that it would have made it on the list for that scene alone. Fortunately, the rest of the movie is great too. Definitely needs a rewatch.

#86: Back to the Future (1985)

I thought I was above 80s comedies before this embarrassingly enough.

#85: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie (1995)

But I still loved this back then. You will NEVER STOP ME FROM LOVING IT!!

Catch you on the flip side.

The backflips man. THe backflips!

#84: Shattered Glass (2003)

About journalist Stephen Glass who was found out for fabricating many of his articles. Watch in disbelief the lengths this guy goes to cover his tracks.

#83: X-Men: First Class (2011)


Dude I just fucking LOVE X-MEN AAAAAAAAAAAA

This is honestly probably an average to slightly above average movie but the happiness I feel when I see X-Men characters on screen is something else. I even liked Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix. But not X3 though or the Wolverine movies lmao

#82: Jennifers Body (2009)

I first watched this on a plane when I was like 17, pulled in by the marketing, and being extremely confused because what the fuck is this years later and I find out the story of how the studio royally fucked the marketing and appreciating the actual story its telling as well as the iconic WRITING and its great now.

#80: Burn After Reading (2008) Coens

Brad Pitt is fucking great in this.

#79: Toy Story 3 (2010)

This is one of those movies where I constantly wonder if I rate it too highly because of nostalgia but whatever. From the opening scene, they lay it on thick and its a fantastic journey. Ken is an amazing new character.

#78: How to Train Your Dragon (2010)

Blew me away because I was not expecting much and then they played the Jonsi song over the credits, cementing its place on my list. If theres one way to permanently plant your movie in my brain, its a good ending song over the credits because I always let those play out the first time. I feel that credits are still part of the movie which is why its included in the runtime and the way the songs contribute to the overall mood and atmosphere are pretty important as well as giving you that cooldown period to RUMINATE.

#77: La Pianiste / The Piano Teacher (2001) Michael Haneke

Incredible performance by Isabelle Huppert and a painful painful film.

#76: / The Legend of Drunken Master / Drunken Master II (1994)

That last fight man

#75: Mean Girls (2004)

Insanely quotable and hilarious.

#74: / Ip Man

That second fight man.

#73: / Secret Sunshine (2007)

I still maintain what I said about this having one of the strongest performances Ive ever seen.

#72: / Nameless Gangster (2012)

Its another mob movie but theres a new level of appreciation here for me because of the attention given to such specific details like the culture, time period and region.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yJu98hK3DQ

#71: Good Time (2017) Safdies

Watch Robert Pattinson give an incredible performance as a piece of shit.

Goonies nearly made my list, I think the fact that I've seen it so many times actually works against it.

Also, just watched Dead Leaves a couple of weeks ago, and that is not a movie for someone with sensitive eyes.

I even liked the latter, X-Men just does it for me in a way other superhero movies don't.

My top ten superhero movies might be Logan, seven of the X-Men movies and then Joker and Defendor if you want to consider them superhero movies.

why i don't like the Wolverine movies is partly because Wolverine is not one of my favorite X-men tbh

what i lke most about them is there's a bunch of them and they all do shit together. even in a movie format where the screentime is limited and the characters are rarely fleshed out, just seeing all the characters do their one little thing is enough.

honestly the best thing would be an extended high quality live action tv series for X-Men but whatever. i guess an animated version would be okay too but there's already been multiple X-Men animated series.

#70: Cidade de Deus / City of God (2002)

I mean this is just brutal.

#69: The Princess Bride (1987)

#68: / Mother (2009) Bong Joon-ho

So an interesting thing about the title of this movie is that the original Korean title is not the word mother in Korean but the actual English word written out in Korean.

#67: No Country For Old Men (2007) Coens

#66: The Big Lebowski (1998) Joel Coen

#65: / Shoplifters (2018) - Hirokazu Kore-eda

#64: / Iron Monkey (1993)

I think this was actually the first martial arts movie I saw and I thought it was like the coolest thing ever.

#63: The Lobster (2015) - Yorgos Lanthimos

#62: Starlet (2012) Sean Baker

#61: / One Cut of the Dead (2017)

Everyone should watch this. Zombie movie with a 40 minute single take to start it off and it gets even crazier after that.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon nearly made my list, and in a vacuum it probably should have because I really enjoyed the movie, but the weightless physics it popularized that then found its way into what seemed like every martial arts movie for the next handful of years really wore me down over time. It ended up making me enjoy all of them less even if it wasn't the fault of the early movies that utilized it.

Goonies nearly made my list, I think the fact that I've seen it so many times actually works against it.

Also, just watched Dead Leaves a couple of weeks ago, and that is not a movie for someone with sensitive eyes.

I can understand that. I do feel as though if I've watched it more it'd be lower on the list. I've only seen it a handful of times. Dead Leaves is definitely something! I just like the wackiness of it.

On JC's list, didn't expect to see another Last Night in Soho movie!

Everyone should watch this. Zombie movie with a 40 minute single take to start it off and it gets even crazier after that.

That sounds really cool!

my favorite parts of the movie are actually the character interactions. i remember the movie getting clowned on years ago for the weightless stuff but it fits the tone of the story and etc. i also haven't been as overexposed to that type of style i guess so

Yeah Mishima made a pretty big impression, not just a great biopic but a fantastic examination of art, philosophy, politics.

Definitely gonna check out One Cut of the Dead soon, I've been eyeing that one for a while
