Gimme Seven -- The Sequel

It is the end of another work week for me so the hamsters that are spinning the wheels are a little tired. So here is another fun list, at least I hope so. Last Friday we did 7 comedies, so this time it will be 7 others. They can be horror films, sci-fi, action, drama or porn for all I care, but just give your 7 favorite films that aren't designated as comedies.
I'll go first.
  1. "Casablanca"
  2. "Infernal Affairs" -- not a typo, it is infernal. It is a Hong Kong cop/action/thriller.
  3. "American Psycho"
  4. "Four Feathers"
  5. "Master and Commander"
  6. "Whale Rider"
  7. "Batman Begins"

Have a great weekend.

Dammit Steve, I said no comedies. Comedies were last Friday. It is this kind of attention to detail that gets you really bad movies and lands your career in the toilet.
Now shape up Mahoney!

@vince.. this for me feels like "if you were to go live on a deserted island forever and you could only bring 7 films, what would they be ??"
aaaahhhhhhhh

- mulholland drive
- full metal jacket
- godfather 2
- me and you and everyone we know (new)
- alien (1&2, can these count for 1?)
- in the mood for love
- the bad education (or any other almodovar films)

@mrshife, can't you make the list 10 films ?? why is it 7 ??? it's just not enough for the rest of my life on a deserted island man !!!

mrshife said...

Ha, because I am a cruel man.
I really don't have any concrete reason. I just want to be different. At least I didn't pick six.

I guees it's like the scene from "There's Something About Mary" and the 8-minute abs. Why 8 minutes, why not 7-minute abs?

So I have no reason and I hope I haven't caused too much hardship to my dear bloggers.

God this is hard...only 7? By the way Mrshife, don't say such mean things to steve guttenberg! The man deserves respect - he was in 3 Men & a Baby & 3 Men & a Little Lady! Those were quality shows!

Max said...

These seven jump immediately to mind.

1. Aliens
2. Fight Club
3. American Psycho
4. Equilibrium
5. Se7en
6. Memento
7. Mulholland Drive

Apparently I have a thing for Brad Bitt and Christian Bale.

cher said...

*Fight Club
*Seven
*Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind
*American Beauty
*12 Monkeys
*Good Will Hunting
*The birth of my son-homemovie, but TRUST me, it's NO comedy!!

If you saw my movie collection, you would know how hard these kind of lists are

totolehero said...

@ anonymous,

what did you like about the "unbearable lightness of being"??? the book was great !!, the acting was great (i have to say), but the movie as a whole was shite (to my eyes..)

Repip said...

These movies pass through my mind on a rainy day...
And yes I am female!
*Notebook
*Crash
*Pulp Fiction
*Good Will Hunting
*Princess Bride
*The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
*Lord of the Rings (all of them)

Jon said...

No particular order...
1. Donnie Darko
2. Cast Away
3. Hellraiser
4. The entire Terminator series
5. The entire Alien series
6. The Godfather
7. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

mrshife said...

I really like Donnie Darko, Seven and Fight Club so those two were on the fringe but are definitely top 10 material.

Christian Bale is currently my favorite actor after his roles in "Batman Begins" and "The Machinist." He leapfrogged Brad Pitt. That is probably somebody's fantasy, Brad and Christian playing leapfrog.
OK, why did I just type that?

@ toloehero

Well, if you thought the book was great & the acting was great, then I don't know why you didn't like the movie. If I watch a movie that I haven't seen in a long time & it still affects me as if I am watching it for the first time, then, to me, that is a good movie.

I also have to recognize great movies that I forgot -

Se7en
Fight Club
American Beauty

I forgot I loved those too...I have to add those to my list & take off Unbearable Lightness of Being & Beethoven.

Just checking out blogs and thought I would stop and read yours since we have some of the same interests and ideas. Some of the ideas are a little much and some are right on. I am glad I stopped by just to say hi I hope you don't mind. Some people consider it spam ( I DON'T ) but if you don't want people to post why do they leave it open for the world to see. I have some great wedding information and articles available for free around 2000 savings ideas so stop on in if you want... I also have some of the most informative sites on yoga and baby gifts and baby showers. Hope you enjoy Thank you for your time.wedding march sheet music
