Random #2 : My Favourite Movie

Just like music, i find it hard to pick just one movie.
Senang cerita, two is always better than one (three four five apa lah lagi kan?)
oooh btw this reminds me of my 'Two Boyfriends Are Better Than One' top. ngahaha. mana baju tu hmmm?

back to what i was saying, movies. Hmmm. i have sooo many favourites la. how to pick just one?

I love most of Quentin Tarantino's work. Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Four Rooms, Reservoir Dogs, and obviously Inglourious Basterds (that goes without saying). Deathproof was okay i guess. I didnt like it as much as i liked the others. Tarantino has that special knack of creative directing. It's a challenge trying to figure out his hidden message.

Stanley Kubrick was also pretty good. I think Kubrick was a visionary of his time. Lolita was great (in a slightly disturbing manner, of course). So was Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange and Full Metal Jacket. Eyes Wide Shut too was eerily pointless.

I repeat watching romance movies like The Notebook and matter-of-fact stories like 500 Days of Summer. I adore musicals like Across The Universe and The Boat That Rocked. Rock N Roll Nerd has a collection of awesome songs. Same goes for Once.

And there are the odd ones like Monty Python and the Holy Grail, A Fish Called Wanda, Who Killed Gilbert Grape, Catch Me If You Can. Those are all brilliant movies. Some foreign ones are good too. Like, the French Love Me If You Dare and Le Fabeleux destin d'Amelie Poulain. Or the Japanese Departures. 

OF course, there are also some exceptional local movies from Allahyarhamah Yasmin Ahmad. I loved all of her movies. Rabun, Sepet, Gubra, Mukhsin, Talentime, Muallaf. She brings out real emotions from me.

Like I said, theres just too many to choose from. Im fickle that way, remember? Do you get me now when i tell you that i simply cant pick any certain one?

But suggesting good ones, THAT i can do. Try movies that were based on Chuck Palahniuk's books. Fight Club, Choke, disturbingly goood. And i heard that Invisible Monsters, Lullaby, Rant and Haunted will soon be made into movies too so that's bound to be explosive.

Cant wait cant wait. :)

Wait -- 'Who Killed Gilbert Grape'? Forgive me if it's the wrong movie; but I thought it was called 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape?' If it's the latter -- yes! I love that movie! Because Leo is in there :P

And how about 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' for the romance section? That was done exceptionally well...

Stanley Kubrick was a visionary, I agree. 2001: A Space Odyssey was a mindfuck. And Francis Ford Coppola's 'Blade Runner' was awesome too. (I tend to gravitate towards cyberpunk/dystopia-like stories...)

you're right. what's eating gilbert grape. hahaha. i havent seen that for so long, dah tak ingat dah the title. hehehe.

leo was spectacularly good as a retard kan? hahaa. i have newfound respect for him after watching the movie. plus, johnny depp was super yummy. haha.

everyone seems to love eternal sunshine. it's different, that i have to admit. and it's really really good jugak. but somehow, it didnt really get to me. i like Closer better.

haha. mindfuck, indeed. :D i havent seen blade runner, but perhaps i should!
