15. THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON - this is the one I have the most trouble with being top 100, but the monster sure is iconic


I can understand why it bothers you, it's just a personal favourite of myne, definately my favourite monster classic. It get's better the more I watch it.

That's OK, unusual choices are part of what this exercise is about.

4. A BETTER TOMORROW - interesting; it's not even my favorite John Woo film, but I can see it.


I think I'm pretty unusual in the west in that it is my favorite Woo film.  What's interesting to me is that Chinese critics almost unanimously put A Better Tomorrow as his best work.  For example, the Hong Kong film awards list it as the second best Chinese film EVER, behind Spring in A Small Town.  Over here, of course, it's usually the Killer which is put up top. The Killer is my third favorite Woo film, behind Bullet in the Head.  I'm not quite sure what puts me more in tune with ABT, but I love all three films, and all three would make it in a personal top 100.

My guess is that ABT is viewed as sort of the Chinese equivalent of GODFATHER/GOODFELLAS, but Western audiences miss a lot of the dramatic nuances.  Like most Americans, I guess I find it easier to respond to the straight-out action of THE KILLER/HARD-BOILED.

33. AMADEUS (1984)



Bull - no comment.

By the way I hope I didn't sound sarcastic there, I was actually trying to be clear.

I didn't think you were ;)
But aren't they all called Star Wars ? I thought, example, Episode 5 was called STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Or is it only THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK ?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
