All Time Favorite Movies - or your favorite 'kino'


ayiyiyi, i'm a little butterfly.
Obvious with my avvie, but Tokyo Godfathers is ranked super high on my kino list. All of Satoshi Kon's work, in my opinion, are up there, but something about Tokyo Godfathers really resonates with me.

If I have to include other movies ... My Interview With A Vampire, Spirited Away, and Fight Club are some of my favorites as well.

If we're talking anime films, it's a toss-up between Urusei Yatsura: Beautiful Dreamer, my "classic" favourite, and The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, the only movie I've ever double-dipped on on Blu-Ray because I stupidly imported the Japanese version when I was convinced it would take Bandai Entertainment a lot longer to release in the west than it actually did.

I was, of course, fortunate enough to get a copy of the English version of The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya just before Bandai Entertainment ceased operations in North America, making the only English release of Disappearance movie (as a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack) highly rare and sought after until Funimation finally put out a new version half a decade later, not that I was ever all that tempted to sell my copy (because the Japanese release I also have doesn't have subs).

I've owned Urusei Yatsura: Beautiful Dreamer on Laserdisc and double-dipped on DVD but still haven't got the Discotek Blu-Ray.

I never grow tired of the Back to the Future movies. Even after decades, I still see some new details here and there.
Like, most recently, I realized that in the end of BTTF3, there's a sign that says the Clayton/Shonash Ravine is called Eastwood Ravine in 1985.

Court Jester - one of my first childhood favorites, hadn't watched it for 15 years and feared it might not be as good as I remembered it, but it turns out it's absolutely fantastc.

The Thing, of course. Alien, Aliens, Predator, Terminator 1 and 2.

The old Star Wars movies.

Pretty much everything Kurosawa ever made...

In terms of Anime, Ghost in the Shell 1 and 2, Jin Roh, Sky Crawlers. Anything Satoshi Kon ever made. 5cm per second.
I really love Princess Mononoke, it even surpasses Spirited Away for me. Nausica and Laputa are awesome, too.

Quite a lot, come to think about it...

Tis the season of spoops
The Beatles Yellow Submarine. My dad let me watch it as a kid, so its like a feel-good childhood film despite being about a massive drug trip (also the songs are my favourite Beatles songs too).

Road to Perdition, it introduced me to the amazing genre that is gangster movies, which led me to the likes of the Godfather.

East is East. A good British drama movie. Same goes for a lot of British dramas, like Quadrophenia, This is England or Trainspotting

House (1977)
Mulholland Drive
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
House and Eraserhead are great mind fuck movies; Mulholland is fantastic; Eternal Sunshine isn't my favorite Charlie Kaufman movie, nor Michel Gondry, but it's still pretty damn good; Haven't seen Rushmore yet though I've planned to for years.

Sword of the Stranger
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
Le Petit Prince
Apocalypse Now
Hacksaw Ridge
Saving Private Ryan
Drunken Master II
Your Name
Never seen Sword; I was actually planning on seeing The Girl Who Leapt Through Time tomorrow; Hacksaw Ridge I saw in theaters and it was really good;SPR I only just recently watched but I liked it; Drunken Master 2 is a very strange choice; Your Name I also saw in theaters and I'm glad I go to.
