films to see before you die

Postby anthony » Wed Aug 20, 2008 2:07 pm

well i searched on the forums and didnt find anything like this (possible failure at searching if there is already a thread like this) so here it goes.. i thought that it would be great that people posted their favourite/must see films here as a sort of guide to what you need to see in your life time then discuss them a little or whatever??... anyway ill start

the shawshank redemption
fight club
AI: artificial intelligence
princess mononoke
all of the batman films
the nightmare before christmas

those are my favourite movies ive seen and imo ones you need to see atleast once in your life as they are just epic, lets hear yours :)

Schindler's List

Well, it does say offtopic under "General." Once the lolcats get in, it's probably asylum time.

Star Wars Trilogy (4-6)
Indiana Jones Trilogy (1-3)
LotR (1-3)

The "offtopic" note predates the asylum, I think it simply hasn't been updated since

Our definitions of "universal appeal" must be fairly different :P

I'm surprised this didn't just get moved into AA. I think "off-topic" means not directly relating to Tankadins. Not pertaining to WoW at all goes in AA.

You did forget one movie I can think of so far.

One of the greatest movies of all time.

Based on the greatest book of all time.

Some say it has changed their life.

It takes place on a planet named Arakis...

also known as Dune.
