My Top 30 Favourite Movies: Part 1
By Geeky Gem
Now a few weeks ago Hmsbeefnuts told you all about his Top 20 movies and not to be outdone I started to think about what my Top 30 movies. When you look at my list you may well go back to Hmsbeefnuts list and find some movies are the same and that’s because well they are my favourite too. Shall we get down to it then?
Tron is a movie I have spoken about on All Geek a few times so is it any wonder that it is on my list. It’s a fantastic movie and brings back a memory of my childhood every time I watch and in the end isn’t that what a great movie should do. Its simple yet thought-provoking story is both fantastic and fun.
Back to the Future
What kind of child of the eighties would I be if this wasn’t n my list, I have lost count of how many times I have watched. Who knows how many times I have day dreamed about time machines being really and where and when would I go? What and who would I see.
Lord of the Rings
Yes I am doing the same as Hmsbeefnuts and including trilogy’s on my list, all the movies are good apart but together they add up to one epic, fantastic adventure through worlds unknown, mix in some epic battles and Orcs and what more did this movie have to be. I can’t wait for the Hobbit, it going to be brilliant plus it will have a dragon and we know I love those.
I don’t even know where to start with Hellboy, its everything I love about movies and comics. It dark, edgy and Ron Perlman is just fantastic as the Demon from another realm. If the BPRD where real I would so want to work there, I’ve seen enough movies to banish a few demons.
This was one of the first Super Hero movies I ever saw, and it sounds cheesy but to quote the tag line I really did believe man could fly. This is where y love for Super Heroes came from and that can only be a good thing in book. That’s why I enjoyed written about The Sons of Krypton back in Avenging April.
I had to have Star Trek on this list; yes I know there is more than trilogy. There’s 11 in fact and with the newest one they broke the myth that every odd-numbered Star Trek is shit. These movies vary and not all of them are good but they are worth a watch, there are fantastic and run alongside the show nicely. However I really wish Deep Space Nine and Voyager had been given a go at the big screen.
Did you really think I would include Superman and not include Batman? After having watched all six movies for Bat-A-Thon for Summer Knights, I sat there and had a good hard think about which of the six I like the most and this was it. This was everything I love about The Dark Knight with Nolan’s flare and a whole lot more.
I have mentioned my love for Dragon’s many times and this movie even made it on to a list of favourite dragon movies. It was then I realized it’s actually one of my favourite movie, the animation is stunning and musical score is brilliant the voice cast is rich and the story line is brilliant. I can’t wait for squeal.
Krull came out about month after I was born, not a lot of people remember it and Hmsbeefnuts is the only other person I know to have seen it. Put this with The Princess Bride and you have one of favorite weekend double bills. A prince and a fellowship of companions set out to rescue his bride from a fortress of alien invaders who have arrived on their home planet. What more could you ask for.
Oh 300 where do I start. This was just the height of epicness for me. It has a brilliant story and fantastic effects. The graphic novel is really good as well if you can get your hands on it read it. The soundtrack and dialogue for this move was just everything it should have been.
Well that is the first part of my top 30. Come back soon to find what else made it on the list that I have already changed five times.
