Topic for lists


(titoli) #1

Here you can post any crazy list that comes to your mind, that doesn’t have its own topic and you don’t feel like opening one.

So, for start, here’s my TOP 10 VENGEFUL FLICKS: http://letterboxd.com/mavuku/list/vengeance-is-mine/

A couple I did a while ago to start off with, but I’ll add some new ones at some stage:

Ooh, Matron! The Carry On films, Ranked

Describe Your Love Life with a Movie Title

The ABCs of Movies

I’ve got some others I did a while ago but they need some re-tooling.

I like your ABC list caress, I think lots of titles would make mine too. Just 1 question: you don’t like Blade runner? :slight_smile:

The ABC list idea is a good one. Might have to try that one myself.
As for your rating of the Carry On films, well I could see us having a long argument about that in a pub in Essex somewhere. Carry On Camping better than Carry On Cleo?!? :o :o Carry On Abroad at number 3?!? :o :o :o Madness!


(titoli) #5

Something that is suitable for the weather outside my windows: SNOW MOVIES! (non-Christmas)

Fargo, Shinning, The Thing, Grande Silenzio, Jeremiah Johnson, Snowpiercer, Cliffhanger, 30 Days of Night, Alive, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, The Dark Valley, Misery, Groundhog Day…

Don’t forget The Thing; it has a Morricone soundtrack.

Well, let’s see the fibre of your fabric Philip old son! :slight_smile: I see by another thread that you’re in an “Oooh, matron!” frame of mind, let’s see your order of preference!

(tbh Camping over Cleo is by the breadth of a Rizla. Could go the other way on a given day. The next three are all bloody close to one another as well)

The full list will have to come after the marathon re-watching as some of these I haven’t seen for many years but I am willing to bet that Cleo will beat Camping by a lot more than the width of a Rizla. My rule of thumb with Carry Ons has always been the older the better. It always seemed to me that the longer the series went on and the more it became synonymous with scantily clad women and learing older men the less funny they became. Not that I don’t like a bit of Ooh Matron occasionally. After all, I’m British damn it! I just think the older black and white ones in their slightly gentler form were better. But we shall see how those memories stack up to a new viewing. So far though, it’s pretty clear that Carry On Sergeant will fair better in my list than in yours.

I am the opposite to you Phil. Do prefer the later, especially the 70’s ones. Those 70’s clothing fashion classics :smiley: for instance.

Top 20 Favourite Albums of All Time

As I went through my collection selecting potentials for my big 20, I ended up with a “shortlist” of over eighty albums. I found myself genuinely staggered as the 20 took shape that there was in the end no place for, say, Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath, Songs the Lord Taught Us by The Cramps or Danzig II: Lucifuge by Danzig; albums I would’ve sworn to fupping Jeebus were in my top twenty… nay, top ten, even. But there we have it. As you’ll see below, almost all of my very favourites come from the same period of time: The eighties, when not just music, but the discovery of music, meant more to me than it ever has at any other time (well, I’d like to have thought I was into a lot of stuff in the nineties too but I guess the big albums for me from that time didn’t manage to shift the monoliths of the decade previous).

Anyway, it’s taken me a few days to really chew over and think about but, for what it’s worth, here are my Twenty Favourite Albums of All Time:
