what maj said. the excellent momento really has a re-watch value, as much as the usual suspects or the sixth sense (it's a shame sharmalama's later films collectively devalue his first twist flick), but would you not tire of it after 15+ views? they live is a carpenter classic, i must have watched it many many times. i bought the vhs copy from the video shop, back in the days before blockbuster or the internet, I've even watched a 1080p version within the last year

usual suspects is overrated. most predictable twist ever.

Kiki's Delivery Service

. That's not even Miyazaki's best. That's either Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke, and I would just go for Spirited Away out of the two by a slim margin

I know that. I was going for universal appeal. Spirited Away is an astounding work of art, but show it to my 3 year old and nobody in my household will be sleeping for weeks. Spirited Away is for older children. Mononoke is for teenagers. Kiki is for everybody! It's a nice simple story with real emotional resonance and actual character growth. All too rare in a movie suitable for young children. Like all of his films, it's also absolutely gorgeous. Every frame a painting, etc.

If you're going for one for everybody then surely Totoro?

i would say that you sir, are somehow dislocated from the average viewing experience! yeah put that in your pipe and smoke it!!!

like a goldfish looking out of their bowl at a world that isn't even real

 

anyway I've changed my mind. I'm saying (quite predictably) my one movie would be the shawshank redemption


or maybe it should be predator.... em man, one movie is too hard!

I agree with Bob. Memento was fine, but I'm never watching it again. I can't speak for the Usual Suspects because I watched it maybe ten years after everyone had thoroughly spoiled the ending for me, but I can see how you might figure it out without stressing too much.

 

If you're going for one for everybody then surely Totoro?

 

That's what I was going to say.


everyone is bitches

fair play, it makes me think of school holidays anyway.... in fact i have to disagree with maj now. he said the person asking informs your decision process, and while i agree in the real world it does, here as we all know, is a different kind of real. a reality/social media inflation bubble if you will - a parallel universe

The problem for me is that most of the movies I like are mostly because I appreciate the craft, which is something that cannot come without having seen multiple movies. A lot of movies lose quite a bit of their appeal if they aren't viewed within the proper context.

Online you know even more about the person asking. You know they're literate, you know they're probably of decent intellect....most likely similar to yourself therefore able to appreciate things in a similar fashion to yourself and likely to hold to a lot of the same criteria for good. The only way to truly anonymize the question would be to have it asked randomly by a computer so zero assumptions can be made

but you also know that you can give 0 bytes of fuck, and that also there is a reasonable chance that the thing in your heart, that beats so fast - fuelled by the very real emotion thats propelling the decisions you make, will never be read, most likely never really understood and that all you can ever really do is tell them that you love them. bible school'ed  bitch  nonesexistandorganicnomenclature

 

maybe no one else's schooled  ;)

I personally like Kiki more than Totoro. I've watched both of them 50+ times with my kid, and Kiki is the best Miyazaki for the widest possible audience, in my opinion.. It's got better, deeper characters than Totoro, better visuals, a more linear/less abstract plotline. It's incredibly accessible for an anime film. It might not be even close to the best Miyazaki, but it's still a great film. And I mean, I could have chose the one where the raccoons have big balls. Or the one with the pig flying a plane in the 1920s, or yeah, Spirited Away, Totoro, Mononoke, Castle In The Sky, or any other of his brilliant works, but I really like the one with the teenage witch discovering herself alone in a new town.
