I'm not going to list it here tonight, but I was thinking about what my all-time top ten favorite films list would look like, and it's a pretty shaggy lot. So I thought I'd make a Rambler contest out of it - How Well Do You Know Dave(s taste)? Get five out of ten right and you win nothing. But still, it'll be fun. Get ten out of ten and I guess I'll have to give you something. Try me and see.
Of course, it'll stop being fun if you look at my Facebook profile to see what films I have listed over there, so don't cheat; you'll only be ruining it for yourself.
Barring actual cheating, I'll give you two hints:
1) Give me way less credit than you think you should give me;
2) The 70's Auteur School? Fuck 'em.
The Great Mouse Detective..
Bo, but coincidentally, I was looking at its Wiki entry just this minute and thinking that I'd like to rewatch it.
That's 'No,' not 'Bo.'
Empire STrikes Back
The Black Hole
Vacation - maybe European Vacation
Two right. 'Tron ' & 'Fantasia.'
Never been a huge Indiana Jones fan, and... where did you get 'Vacation' from?
'Empire' would definitely be in my top 20, and I do love 'The Black Hole,' but not enough.
You always used to go... 'big ben.. Parliament'
True - still do.
City of Lost Children
Star Trek The Motion Picture
Escape to Witch Moutain
The Muppets Take Manhattan
Was I close?
I'm not yet sure, but there's a good chance that 'Mirrormask' is in the running. 'Krull' is on my shadow top-ten list, which consists of films that I objectively know aren't very good, but saw as a kid and really have deep affection for.
As far as ST:TMP - http://copper-man.net/2008/01/motionless-picture.html
HOWARD THE DUCK!!!
Yeah, I do like that, and it really is an unaccountable liking (hence the title of the blog) - but there's no way it's in my top ten. Although it probably gets a spot on my shadow list.
It just turned up on Hulu a little while ago - which misses the point, since one of the only reasons to watch that film is for some great special effects, and Hulu is too compressed to show that.
Oh yeah, I forgot you hated ST:TMP.
How 'bout Strange Brew? The toy?
For some reason, 'The Toy' always creeped me out (even creepier knowing that the kid went on to a career in porn).
'Strange Brew.' Hmmm. Not in my top 10, but definitely somewhere in my top 50. Haven't seen it in a long time, but I remember really liking the odd mix of elements.
