My Top 50 Favorite Movies of All Time

Did my top 25 on another site earlier today and figured I might as well extend it for here  If I did this tomorrow it would probably be slightly different but whatever...   1.

My Blu-ray collection

I love collecting these sort of media items and of course discussing the items themselves. Do you have any of the same titles, and which ones interest you the most? Really, I'd be interested in hearing any general thoughts. - An arrow indicates that the films are sold in a set to explain what seems like an alphabetizing error. -   10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) 1941 (1979) 28 Days Later... (2002) Alien: Covenant (2017) Allied (2016) Amadeus (1984) American Psycho

My DVD Collection

All right, so I don't seriously think anyone is gonna sift through the hundreds of movies on this list, but I was backing it all up from the IMDb list I add to anyway and since I've done blog entries like this before, I figured why not....   The TV series that I own on DVD/Blu-ray are already listed in a separate entry: https://fotpforums.com/blogs/entry/815-my-tv-series-collection/   #-Z   2010 (1984) 22 Jump Street (2014) 300 (2006) The 300 Spartans (1962)

My 2017 in photos

I started off the year by finally getting my driver's license after many years of just having a learner's.     Film enthusiast that I am, I unfortunately didn't watch as many movies in general as I usually do, but I did reach the milestone of seeing more films than ever theatrically.     Commemorating one of two of them...     I went to the amusement park, which was fun considering I hadn't been in a while. I went on many rides varyi

What I bought at Comic-Con

Doctor Strange and Mr. Fantastic (these are somewhat old and you can't take them out of the box without cutting it open, so I won't be doing so)     The Shadow (debated getting the regular version or the Lamont Cranston/Alec Baldwin one that turns into the Shadow, landed on the former). Again, not gonna open it.     Batman (1989) blast shield (action figure included) and Batwing, still boxed.     Movie-based Dick Tracy toys that I ha

Every film I have ever seen in theatres

I was making this list for another site since I want to keep track from now on, and as I've done before I thought I might as well post it here too  This list is constructed just from memory really, so there may be a couple of mistakes, and they are ordered by U.S./Canadian release dates rather than the order that I saw them (which would be pretty much impossible to recall).   1996 (birth year):   n/a   1997:   n/a   1998:   Antz

My VHS Collection

Half of you rascals probably don't even remember this format but here it is  Again, just backing this up elsewhere and figured I might as well add it here. This is all the stuff I haven't yet bothered to replace on DVD or Blu-ray, so there's a lot of kids' movies and mediocre action films/comedies here...   #-Z 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) The 6th Day (2000) Aaahh!!!

My Top 10 TV series that lasted only one season

Some of these are better known than others, and two specifically have a lot of martyrdom attached to them due to being cancelled so early on, but ultimately I think still deserve a lot of acclaim.   10. Garfunkel and Oates     This one was more quietly removed and I don't think it really garnered much of a fanbase, but it's an amusing if somewhat uneven show with some very offbeat, non-generic comedy.   Favorite episode: Maturity   9. Clerks: The

My TV series collection

I did this for another website and I figured I'd back it up here. A minimum of people will probably care but eh, it's already done. If a series is italicised, that means it's an ongoing series that I simply own every released season of thus far, and unless otherwise indicated, these are all DVD. Complete series: American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson Angel Arrested Development Ash vs. Evil Dead (1 on DVD, 2 on iTunes) Batman: The Animated Series  Birds of Prey Buf

My Top 15 Time Travel Films

This is one of my favourite sub-genres in science fiction (though not every film here counts as sci-fi), so I'm also gonna add an "honourable mention" list as they very end just so the primary one isn't ridiculously long. Also, I won't count more than one film from the same series.   15. 14. 13. 12. 11. 10. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1.

My Top 20 Biopics

Most/all of these films take some artistic license with the real people they're based on, but I will set some limits. I'm not going to count anything here like Amadeus or Quills (both great movies) that are less biopics and more just fiction loosely based on real historical figures.   And yeah, I'm a whore for Warren Beatty.   20. Schindler's List 19. Quiz Show 18. Catch Me If You Can 17. Raging Bull 16. Tombstone 15. The Soci

"Cool" character names in movies

Most of these range from improbable to ridiculous... I could probably fill this list with Sly alone!   Sylvester Stallone  - Jerry Savage (Rebel) - Johnny Kovak (F.I.S.T) - Deke DaSilva (Nighthawks) - Robert Hatch (Victory) - Lincoln Hawk (Over the Top) - Raymond Tango (Tango & Cash) - John Spartan (Demolition Man) - Ray Quick (The Specialist) - Robert Rath (Assassins)   Seagal has some doozies as well...   Steven Sea

My Top 15 Non-Jaws Animal Attack Movies

Not gonna lie - it was a stretch to get all the way to fifteen...   15. Cujo (1983) 14. Bats (1999) 13. Anaconda (1997) 12. Orca (1977)  11. Willard (1971) 10. Monkey Shines (1988) 9. Congo (1995) 8.

My visit to the amusement park

I hadn't gone to one of these since I was about 15, so when I heard they were putting on one for ten days in my local city (with better rides than I was used to as well, my previous city didn't really get the full treatment), I was pretty excited. I had it in my head that I was gonna try all the badass shit that I was too much of a pussy to go on as a kid, and...I sorta did.   The first thing I tried was one of two rollercoasters that were there, and this line took fucking forever. As
