Why?

Why are those your favorites?

I like Goodfellas cause Martin Scorsese, Ray Liotta, DENIRO AND PESSCI ARE AMAZING. Plus I quote it everyday, all day, all the time. "TOMMY GO HOME AND GET YOUR Shinebox!"

Godfather part 1 and 2 because come on it is the Godfather, it is amazing the story and everything!

A Bronx Tale, because I grew up near those places so it makes me feel good and who hasn't had those friends.

Casino because it is amazing DENIRO PESCI!!!! plus it is super awesome when they blow up the car and he survives.

Die Hard, BRUCE WILLIS I MEAN COME ONNNNNNNNNNN!!!!! So much quotable. "Just a fly in the ointment, Hans. The monkey in the wrench. The pain in the ass." He is like a Troll but a hero troll LOL

VHS 1 and 2 Cause come on if you like gore and crazy stories that will scare you, these are great movies. I love how one story is about a couple and girl turns out to be a lesbian that murders her husband, and another great one is how beautiful the zombie story is. It isn't cheesy and it shows how it would actually start!

Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein AMAZING! SO FUNNY AND how can you not be a fan! CLASSIC!

Dracula, this is the only Dracula I consider any good. Boris Karloff is amazing! I can watch that movie for hours!

Friday the 13th, a great classic of the 1980's horror golden age!

Sleep Away Camp it is a very messed up movie and I enjoy that.

Friday COME ONE CUBE and Chris Tucker!!!!! SMOKEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY "It is friday, you aint got shit to do."

Road Trip I mean Tom Green, DJ Quails, and that hot chick! I laugh thru that whole movie!

Scarface, I mean instant classic, just love it. Kinda like Silk Road, quick rise to power and doesn't realize how he made enemies in powerful people and taunts them.

That's better.

I truly despise it when these threads pop up and everyone puts up a list and then fails to discuss. It's like the most intellectually vacuous thing ever. Nobody gives a fuck about what anyone else says, because nobody actually engages.

Engage. Discuss. Criticize.

Now, how, albeit loosely, are two of your chosen films related to six of mine? Hint: it relates to the doings of a director.

I can't pick a favorite movie, since there are a lot of great movies out there. I am a huge fan of Asian cinema like ' Oldboy', 'IP Man','Azumi' etc.

SO? if i like avatar movie whats with that

Thank you for the reply. Here's my answer. I don't know of a single person who has seen films that I have mentioned, or like the films I have mentioned, that would still consider Avatar to be as great as they might have formerly believed it to be.

Forgive me if I sound a little condescending. Let's try a fresh start, where I'll explain a little. The first thing you must understand is I've seen Avatar. One and a half times to be precise. I saw Avatar before I saw any of the films I listed. I used to not be old school, and even if I do like older films now, that doesn't mean I don't like newer films now. I'd hardly qualify five of the films on my list as old, but rather quite modern. So, for starters, there's five modern films on that list.

Now, the second thing you should consider. As I mentioned, I've seen Avatar. You haven't seen the films I listed. That means that I have some perspective on the matter that you don't. Out of the fifteen films under discussion - my fourteen and your one - I've seen them all, and you've seen one.

Let's go further. Out of the fifteen films under discussion, at least four or five of them were recently voted in the top 100 films ever made by directors and critics worldwide. Avatar was not one of them. That does not mean that Avatar cannot be enjoyed. There's nothing wrong with deriving pleasure from a film. It certainly is better than not deriving pleasure from a film. I'm all for people enjoying films, rather than nitpicking about them.

And that leads to my last point. While I listed fourteen films, they are all made by five directors. Five were made by one, and four by another one. People who watch those films almost invariably love them. There is something rather magical about them. Since these directors are auteurs (not all directors are auteurs), the pleasure derived from these works go up as you build familiarity with the directors' style, themes and favorite actors.

And finally, as I alluded to when I discussed their ranking in the most prestigious poll out there, these are not obscure films. They are discussed endlessly by fans and film scholars alike. The consensus is that they provide undiminished pleasure upon repeated viewings. I can certainly attest to that.

These look very good!
but what about your favorites from the newer releases like back ~up to 5 years? I'd love to hear these too.

Three of the films mentioned are from the 21st century. Certainly there is little difference between a film made in 2004 and a film made in 2008? Two of the films are made in the '90s. I made a length reply to the thread starter. Give it a read.

Not only can you enjoy every film on this list, you can also have a whole new world opened up to you that will lead you to great places. Now consider the alternative. I could come in here and start talking about Die Hard. But everyone's heard of that, and almost certainly seen it. And even if they haven't seen it, they're already aware of it as a film that they could see if they wanted to. I'm trying to take you to new places. And my recommendations are not obscure 'B' movie picks. Rather they are films that are highly regarded. And I mean very very highly. Why do you suppose that is? One reason: they are beautiful, thoughtful, deep, pleasurable films to watch.

I can't pick a favorite movie, since there are a lot of great movies out there. I am a huge fan of Asian cinema like ' Oldboy', 'IP Man','Azumi' etc.

How many films have you watched from Yasujiro Ozu, Mikio Naruse, Kenji Mizoguchi, Edward Yang, Wong Kar-Wai, Hou Hsiao Hsien, Masahiro Shinoda, Shohei Imamura, Nagisa Oshima, Yoshishige Yoshida, Tran Anh Hung, Lav Diaz, Yasuzo Masumura, Shiro Toyoda, Kaneto Shindo, Koreyoshi Kurahara, Masaki Kobayashi, Hiroshi Shimizu, Takashi Miike, Stanley Kwan, Chen Kaige, Keisuki Kinoshita, Hiroshi Teshigahara, Jia Zhanke, Hirokazu Koreeda, Lee Chang-dong, and Hiroshi Inagaki?

What huge Japanese Golden Era director did I leave off from the list of directors listed above?

Between the three actresses Setsuko Hara, Hideko Takamine, and Kinuyo Tanaka, which do you like the best?

What is your opinion of the Taiwan New Wave vs. the Japanese New Wave?

Which Wong Kar-Wai film do you think is the best? Do you think there is another director who better explores the themes of unrequited love?

Between Naruse and Ozu, which director do you believe better explores the theme of women and Japanese modernity?

Compare and contrast the plights of women depicted in Imamura's films over those in Mizoguchi's films.

No. I'm just seeing if you're a fan or not. Films like Oldboy aren't indicative of being a fan. There's too many non Asian film fans who are fans of Oldboy.

Don't take this the wrong way. If you're a genuine fan, you will be interested in the names I mentioned, and really want to learn more. I understand I've raised your hackles, but in the end you'll get more out of it.

Now please tell me, which of those directors you are genuinely familiar with. As I said, if you're not familiar with them, but are indeed a fan, then you'll want to know more.

I know nothing about directors, I probably did see movies of them. I have +- 60  Asian movies on dvd. I love how a lot of hollywood movies were inspired by movies like Battle Royal, Internal Affairs, Ringu, Phone etc.

One of my all time favorites is Sword in the Moon.

I know nothing about directors, I probably did see movies of them. I have +- 60  Asian movies on dvd. I love how a lot of hollywood movies were inspired by movies like Battle Royal, Internal Affairs, Ringu, Phone etc.

One of my all time favorites is Sword in the Moon.

That's Infernal Affairs, not Internal Affairs. And it starred Andy Lau and Tony Leung.

You'll enjoy films more if you start paying attention to directors. Do you like to read novels? If you find an author you like, you then look for other books by that author. Same with directors. You should also learn to identify the difference between an auteur and a director. When you get into the realm of film appreciation, auteurs make a difference. Most of the directors I mentioned qualify as auteurs. Certainly the films I mentioned in the beginning of this thread were all made by auteurs.

Since you liked Infernal Affairs, you should at least start watching some Won Kar-Wai films. Days of Being Wild stars both. And Tony Leung is Wong Kar-Wai's most frequent collaborator. Start with Chungking Express.

As I said, start with Chungking Express. It's a little bit lighthearted and fun, but it's the best intro to Wong Kar-Wai's work. From there, advance to his more meditative material. 2046 is probably the best one to watch after Chungking Express.

Warning: 2046 is a deeply contemplative film loaded with sublime and beautiful shots and an extraordinary soundtrack. You can watch the surface of the film, and become mesmerized. But it will probably take a second and third viewing to properly absorb its themes and messages. To assist with your understanding of the film, you'll eventually need to watch Days of Being Wild and In the Mood for Love as well, and likely multiple times.

I can assure you that these films are levels above the films you've mentioned. Do I mean anything negative about your selections by that? No, I don't. But Wong Kar-Wai films are films which deserve contemplation well beyond your average films. That's why scholars discuss them. But some people don't 'get' his films. In one sense, his films require effort. And if you put in the effort, they pay back in spades.

I strongly urge you to watch this video where a man introduces 2046 to a film festival audience: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYINdmSyhRA

You probably don't like Asian films because you have a preconceived idea about what there are like. Tell me what they're like, and I'll address whether you've got it right or not.

Well thanks for taking an interest. Can I promise that you'll love these films? No, I can't. But among the circle of Wong Kar-Wai fans, these films end up in their top ten. Combine his locations, the cinematography, his use of color, his themes, his way of telling the story, his incredible soundtracks, and his unique style and vision, and you end up with something rather special.

Also, bear in mind that Chungking Express is often in stark contrast to his more formal and deliberate style evident in his other works. So, whatever your reaction to Chungking Express is, bear in mind that you're in for something altogether different with his other works. Nonetheless, I stand behind my recommendation to watch Chungking Express first.

Man i only like english based movies. Dunno why but that is only language that i can watch movies. Dont like german turkey or other based language movies. I am used to english.

I used to be like you. I resisted subtitled films like crazy. Man I was missing out. Within the realm of cinema, you'll find less studio driven films outside of the United States. Once you get the non artist (the studio execs) fingers out of a film's production, you get the true vision of the artist - which is the director. When a director does not need to pander to the notion of making the most money possible, he does not need to create material that will be entertaining to both idiots and illiterates. Nor does he need to do the Hollywood style of directing, which is to provide all the necessary hints and clues, keep the narrative straight and narrow, and make sure the story moves along at a fast clip, so that the less cinematically inclined will not become anxious.

Do you want an example? I think you do. Take a look at this wonderful video which shows how the same footage was cut two different ways. On the right we'll see the Hollywood style of cutting. Hollywood films rarely vary from this style. Here's the video: https://vimeo.com/68514760

Now, you've probably heard me mention Ozu, as in Yasujiro Ozu. Why do I bring him up now? Because he was an auteur. He developed a recognizable style. And the same guy who put together that wonderful video you just watched (you did watch it, did you not?), put together a wonderful video showcasing the hallways and passageways side by side so elegantly portrayed in Ozu's films. Why would someone do this? Because Ozu sits on a pedestal. He is revered. Why? Because when you watch Ozu films, something magical happens - a sort of transcendental experience which results in intense pleasure. Here's the video of Ozu's passageways: https://vimeo.com/55956937

watched and i am not interested, sorry

Sadly, you will likely never experience cinema at a level that is possible. An analogy might be someone with stunted taste buds who will never be able to enjoy fine food at the same level as others.

I mean that sincerely.

To be honest, most here post films everyone has heard of and seen, and thus they are sharing nothing. Or they're posting films which just aren't very good. Or both!

TBH I'm kinda dissapointed with this thread... just a bunch of action movies, Avatars, Godfathers and the 15 serious movies list. IMHO The Last Boy Scout is far better than Die Hard, Avatar is just another Titanic and you should go and see every movie from that list it will change your perspective. My favorite is hard to tell realy don't know... Blade runner maybe or The Good, The Bad and The Ugly or All the President's Men or Dark Star all great movies worth of your time...

The Bitcoin crowd is mostly cinematically challenged. Not only that, but when it comes to anything related to cinema, they can't engage in discussion. They come in, snipe off a comment mentioning some film, and then leave the thread forever. Such behavior seems immature, honestly. What's the point? Can they not defend their choice? Can they not comment on another's choices? Can they not ask questions? Can they not expand on their selections? Why bother posting if you don't bother coming back?

Longest yard is a great movie. Being a popular movie among others and was very popular when it first came out. I think the story was different to any other movies that I saw prior too. Although, I'm a big fan of the actors in the movie.

Did you stop at Kurosawa, or did you explore the works of his contemporaries? Kurosawa's a good place to start, but a terrible place to end.

I'd certainly love to help you out, but you could help me out my defining what you consider to be the genre, and what other films from said genre that you watched that just missed being put on your list.

Star wars saga

I'd be more interested in hearing about the first film in your favorite films list that everyone on the planet hasn't heard of. You know, kind of like people want to hear something that has some novelty. Tell me now, what are you going to do about that little nugget of information you've shared with us?

The 4th one was terrible. They should leave older movies alone instead of whoring them for money. Just like Rambo 4 :s

I concur. The 4th part of both movies was only made for money..

Any recommendations from Q3-Q4 of 2013?

Man i only like english based movies. Dunno why but that is only language that i can watch movies. Dont like german turkey or other based language movies. I am used to english.

Get Battle royale best subtitled movie and I love it. It got me into Asian Horror.

+ on Battle Royale. Relentless action, stylish, brutal. Likely inspiration for the Hunger Games, bears the same relationship that Bitcoin does to Litecoin.

Too bad you won't brave the subtitles, my favorite film of all time is Kurosawa's Ikiru. Ozu's Tokyo Story is (for me) a very close second. FirstAscent does not feel that it is his best movie, so lots to explore there!

Anything by Miyazaki (senior), and pretty much anything from Studio Ghibli. There are dubs, but I think they are inferior to the original Japanese soundtracks. I'm not even sure how the heck you could dub Whisper of the Heart?

But there are lots of English language movies that are excellent. Check out some noir from the 40's: Out of the Past is probably my favorite.

Horror: Nosferatu. Rumor is that the actor who plays Drac was an actual vampire. Certainly seems plausible. Even the remake scared the crap out of me, and I hate remakes. Usually.

SF: Bladerunner, Philip K. Dick done right, atmospheric, with a great soundtrack.

Comedy: Good Neighbor Sam, so ridiculous a concept, but I laughed my ass off

Fellini's Amarcord. Truffaut's Small Change. Moving stuff, funny yet heartbreaking. Oops, subtitles...

My six favorite Ozu films are, in no particular order:

Late Spring
Early Summer
Tokyo Twilight
Equinox Flower
Late Autumn
Floating Weeds

Have you seen them all?

Kurosawa's Ikiru didn't really do it for me. I get it, but it's not my favorite. Red Beard, on the other hand...

I've recently watched eleven Mikio Naruse films. Have you seen any films by Naruse?

That's your favorite because you haven't seen the films which would replace it as your favorite. Conclusion: you haven't seen enough films.

I have already named some truly great films. Here are two more:

The Face of Another
Pale Flower
Okay I'll check them out.
Funny how everyone lists favorites mostly from recent releases..

Some context would be in order. For starters, those two selections really aren't obscure. They're pretty damn fine movies much lauded by critics and cinephiles.

Some of these one liners are horrendous.

But weeding through them to get to the thought-out lists is proving worth it.

I've added about 20 movies to my queue. Naruse, Ozu, and some Kurosawa I've never seen. Thanks guys!

Regarding Naruse, start with When a Woman Ascends the Stairs. From there, move on to these, in no particular order:

Floating Clouds
Yearning
Flowing
Scattered Clouds
Late Chrysanthemums
Sound of the Mountain

Regarding Naruse, start with When a Woman Ascends the Stairs. From there, move on to these, in no particular order:

Floating Clouds
Yearning
Flowing
Scattered Clouds
Late Chrysanthemums
Sound of the Mountain

Thanks, will do. Although I can't find an online copy of Bangiku (Late Chrysanthemums), but I'll keep looking.

Some of these one liners are horrendous.

Just focus on the others. When a Woman Ascends the Stairs is key. That should be your first film. Not only is it a good introduction to Naruse, it's also a great introduction to the actress Hideko Takamine. You will love her. You'll be pleased that you can see her fine performances in Floating Clouds and Yearning as well. She's also in Flowing, but less so.

Takamine also gives a great performance in Keisuke Kinoshita's Twenty-four Eyes and Shiro Toyoda's Wild Geese, otherwise known as The Mistress.

Also, if you haven't discovered the directors Hiroshi Teshigahara and Masahiro Shinoda, now would be the time to do so. Teshigahara's surreal masterpieces Woman in the Dunes and The Face of Another are must see films. And Shinoda's Pale Flower is a masterpiece as well.

If you're not yet a fan of Tatsuya Nakadei, you should be. See his performance in Sword of Doom. Nakadei has appeared in several Kurosawa films, Kinoshita films, and Naruse films. His performance in The Face of Another is brilliant.

I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK (2006)
or
Gamer (2010)

I thought Gamer was a really bad movie. Lame story and bad acting, but that's just my opinion.

To be honest, most here post films everyone has heard of and seen, and thus they are sharing nothing. Or they're posting films which just aren't very good. Or both!

Both were excellent too me but I was stoned out of this earth so idk you may be right lol

If you're going to aspire to watch films by Wong Kar-Wai, then you need to do it right. I don't know if you've seen any of his films, but assuming you have not, the films to watch are:

Chungking Express
Fallen Angels
Days of Being Wild *
In the Mood for Love *
2046 *
Ashes of Time Redux

All feature Wong Kar-Wai's signature style. The ones marked with an asterisk (*) are part of a loose trilogy, but can be watched in any order. I actually encourage Wong Kar-Wai newcomers to watch Chungking Express first, and regardless of their opinion of that film, to then watch 2046 second.

The movies sound nice , but I have not seen any of them  Tongue

I was going to say that most people have not heard of them. But then I realized that would lead you to an erroneous assumption. More correctly, your average Joe has not heard of them. But among cinephiles, critics and movie directors, those films are not only well known, but highly revered and praised. Very highly. As some of the best films ever made.

I'll start downloading some of these and watch 1 or 2 in the weekend. I'll let you what I think about them.

Do you download them so you can get bad subtitles, compressed imagery, and cheat the people who restored these films, thus putting all of us on a path where investors won't invest in film archival in the future?

Ha! Okay, I'll let it slide this time, because you're being a good sport and intend to watch them. Here's a tip though. Nine of the films are available on Hulu Plus (if you live in the States) for a whopping $8.00 a month. 2046 is available as a DVD (no Blu-ray available) for about $10.00, and it doesn't have the bad subtitles which alter the meaning of the dialog. The others are available in various forms, but likely more expensive.

Most importantly, you need some context for these films. With regard to Ozu, your first movie should be Late Spring. It has been voted the 15th greatest film of all time. There's reasons why. Learn about Ozu to better understand. With regard to Naruse, your first film should be When a Woman Ascends the Stairs. You'll discover the Actress Hideko Takamine in that film. Chungking Express makes a good first film to watch by Wong Kar-Wai, followed by 2046. Sansho the Bailiff makes for a good first film from Kenji Mizoguchi. And of course, Yi Yi is the only film on the list from Edward Yang.

Now that I apparently have convinced you of the greatness of these films, please keep an eye on this thread, as I will continue to share more information on the films (sans spoilers) to help you derive more pleasure from them. And great pleasure can be derived from these films - more than most of the stuff you've probably been watching - but it can take a little effort on your part. You don't just take a cavalier attitude with regard to watching these films, as though you were going to catch the latest Hollywood flick. Some understanding of the importance of these films, there context, their place in history, the cultures they represent, the director's reputation within the world of film, and so on, all matter.

Hulu is free. Hulu Plus is $8.00 a month. Many of my selections are on Hulu Plus. If you're paying for it, great. If not, you can usually see the first minute.

For newcomers to the Golden Era of Japanese Cinema, and the Japanese New Wave, a certain order might work best, if you're not accustomed to watching older films, especially foreign films. I realize you'll want something with a cool or modern feel to it, to help ease yourself into the more traditional material. Therefore, I recommend starting with a classic masterpiece from Masahiro Shinoda and an equally classic masterpiece from Hiroshi Teshigahara.

Masahiro Shinoda:
- Pale Flower: http://www.hulu.com/watch/265813

Hiroshi Teshigahara:
- The Face of Another: http://www.hulu.com/watch/241914

From there, you're just going to have to bite the bullet and tackle the masterpieces from the three masters themselves. These films are essentially about women and society. The three directors I'm presenting here are Yasujiro Ozu, Mikio Naruse, and Kenji Mizoguchi. Pick a director, and stick to the order within each director's works, as I have presented them.

Mikio Naruse:
- When a Woman Ascends the Stairs: http://www.hulu.com/watch/241928
- Floating Clouds: http://www.hulu.com/watch/400783
- Yearning: http://www.hulu.com/watch/348203

Yasujiro Ozu:
- Late Spring: http://www.hulu.com/watch/238248
- Early Summer: http://www.hulu.com/watch/243416
- Tokyo Twilight: http://www.hulu.com/watch/247375
- Equinox Flower: http://www.hulu.com/watch/238245
- Late Autumn: http://www.hulu.com/watch/243404
- Floating Weeds: http://www.hulu.com/watch/245714

Kenji Mizoguchi:
- Ugetsu: http://www.hulu.com/watch/215837
- Sansho the Bailiff: http://www.hulu.com/watch/237126

I'm happy to see you're exploring higher cinema. Wink

Now, just a little about Yasujiro Ozu. There's tons to say, but I'll just present a little. As I've said, my choices are not obscure. They're highly praised and treasured films. Here's some info about Ozu from the late great critic Roger Ebert. If you feel you're getting into spoiler territory, then just back off.

A clip to Floating Weeds where Roger Ebert provides commentary: http://arthousecowboy.com/journal/2013/5/1/four-minutes-of-ebert-on-ozu.html

Roger Ebert maintained a list of great films, reserved for only the best of the best:
- http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/great-movie-late-spring-1972
- http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/great-movie-an-autumn-afternoon-1962
- http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/great-movie-tokyo-story-1953

Roger Ebert said: “Sooner or later, everyone who loves movies comes to Ozu.”: http://popcornworld.net/2013/04/09/everyone-comes-to-ozu/

Roger Ebert on Ozu: http://www.rogerebert.com/interviews/saluting-a-master-of-the-cinema-yasujiro-ozu

Roger Ebert praises the masterpieces of Ozu: http://www.rogerebert.com/rogers-journal/ozu-the-masterpieces-youve-missed

Roger Ebert discusses the silent prewar films by Ozu: http://www.rogerebert.com/rogers-journal/silence-is-golden-to-ozu

Iron Man. Just like how the billianare playboy acts ^^

Iron Man 3 Smiley....
That movie was not impressive at all, though the concept of Iron Man is cool enough.

Today's CGI is amazing. I remember watching the first Superman movie when I was young. It looked pretty real to me (when Superman was flying around). Today's CGI makes it nearly impossible to make the difference between real and fake.

And that's why Ozu's Tokyo Story is not my favorite movie. It was recently voted the greatest film ever in the prestigious Sight & Sound Poll, but there are six other Ozu films that I prefer more, and those six Ozu films are indeed some of my favorite films of all time.

I used to only watch Hollywood films, mostly. It's easy. You have to go out of your way to see others. What I mean by that is several things. One, you need to spend some effort to actually learn about the existence of the films. Two, you need to find access to them. And three, you have to mentally adjust your attitude to watch films which can be more philosophical, more cultural, sometimes older, have subtitles, and often slower.

Let's rephrase that. Today's CGI can be amazing, but often isn't so. The best CGI you see in the movies is of the mundane stuff that you never even knew was CGI. The Amtrak train in Let Me In was CGI, yet you'd never suspect it was.

I stopped buying dvds/blurays since I own a 600+ collection. I now use a plug-in mediaplayer for downloading movies. I still buy the ones which are really good, but not before downloading it first.

I will grant that you might have the need to seek "other" means to watch a film, if it were, say, unavailable, without English subtitles, or unavailable completely. An example might be Yoshishige Yoshida's films, such as A Story Written With Water. Keep in mind also, that you only get one chance to see a film the first time. In such cases, you don't want the experience ruined by an inferior transfer.

Furthermore, and especially for older films, it's to your benefit to pay for a disc. Older films only get restored and published if the publisher, such as Criterion, can do it profitably. If and when the majority believes it's acceptable to download for free, then that's the day that newly available films from the past will dry up to a trickle.

On a different note, what is your viewing setup? What equipment? How much importance do you attach to image fidelity? What would be your ideal setup?

Too many to count, World War Z, Iron Man 3, Thor, Men of Steel and ETC

Have you started watching cinema 3 months ago?

ROFL!

2 of my favorite Movies...:
PulpFiction & 4Rooms
There are so much more...but these 2 automatically come spontaneous to my mind when it's been asked about.

4Rooms was really good. Jackie Brown is one of my personal Tarantino favourites.

Like Tarantino, do you? Well, Tarantino likes Wong Kar-Wai - you know - four of the films on my list are from Wong Kar-Wai. Here's Tarantino on Chungking Express: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoHg-RvcwzE

By the way, there are certain scenes in Tarantino films that I just love. For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJlu_xo79k8

Thanks for the Info - I'll gonna check it out!

I have a 46" full HD 3D LED tv, the mediaplayer has 1080p output and I have a 600W 7.1 surround sound system. I always download the movies in the highest quality available so it shouldn't ruin the experience. Some movies need to be seen in cinemas though Tongue

Too many to count, World War Z, Iron Man 3, Thor, Men of Steel and ETC

Have you started watching cinema 3 months ago?

ROFL!

2 of my favorite Movies...:
PulpFiction & 4Rooms
There are so much more...but these 2 automatically come spontaneous to my mind when it's been asked about.

4Rooms was really good. Jackie Brown is one of my personal Tarantino favourites.

Like Tarantino, do you? Well, Tarantino likes Wong Kar-Wai - you know - four of the films on my list are from Wong Kar-Wai. Here's Tarantino on Chungking Express: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoHg-RvcwzE

By the way, there are certain scenes in Tarantino films that I just love. For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJlu_xo79k8

Thanks for the Info - I'll gonna check it out!

Wong Kar-Wai is a treasure. I suggest you explore his films starting with these four, in this order:

- Chungking Express
- 2046
- Days of Being Wild
- In the Mood for Love

The first is rather lighthearted. The others are heavier. They all benefit from repeated viewings. Also, the last three are part of a loose trilogy, whose proper order is:

Days of Being Wild
In the Mood for Love
2046

But when I say loose, I mean loose. You can watch them in any order. I suggest 2046 first. But remember, you really won't grasp the deeper meditations without watching them multiple times. The journey is well worth it. You're in for something wonderful.

I have a 46" full HD 3D LED tv, the mediaplayer has 1080p output and I have a 600W 7.1 surround sound system. I always download the movies in the highest quality available so it shouldn't ruin the experience. Some movies need to be seen in cinemas though Tongue

Hence my intense research into what equipment will provide the best experience. A large screen matters. And upscaling algorithms matter as well. Ultimately, I want a viewing distance to screen width ration of about 1.1 to 1.4 to give that theater like experience. But unless you have the proper upscaling equipment, DVDs will never hold up at that distance. And there are a lot of critically acclaimed films which just aren't going to get the 1080p treatment anytime soon.

The best I've seen so far is an Oppo Blu-ray player (which has HDMI in as well as out to allow for incoming sources) coupled to a JVC eshift-2 projector. The Oppo can upscale to 4k, but that's not as important as the quality of its upscaling to 1080p. The JVC line of projectors are the only ones which output a pseudo 4k image outside of the Sony projector, which runs $24,000. However, the eshift-2 technology does some interesting stuff with the pixels. I recently tested a DVD in the system and was blown away by the upscaled quality. Bear in mind that I've tested quite a number of DVDs and Blu-rays in various systems for the purpose of evaluating image fidelity on large screens.

The system I evaluated:

- Oppo BDP-105 Player: http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-105/

- JVC DLA-X55R 4k eshift-2 Projector: http://procision.jvc.com/product.jsp?modelId=MODL029154&pathId=71&page=10

- McIntosh MX121 preamplifier: http://www.mcintoshlabs.com/us/Products/pages/ProductDetails.aspx?CatId=hometheaterprocessors&ProductId=MX121

- McIntosh MC8207 Amplifier: http://www.mcintoshlabs.com/us/Products/pages/ProductDetails.aspx?CatId=newproducts&ProductId=MC8207

I was quite impressed with how monaural soundtracks from older films published by Criterion were made to sound very rich and natural with the McIntosh audio equipment.

That's an awesome setup. I hope I can offord it one day Tongue. What kind of setup do you have?

It is indeed an awesome setup. The units cost, respectively, about $1,000, $5,000, $6,000 and $6,000. I too hope I can afford it someday soon.

I currently have a Samsung Blu-ray player coupled to a Samsung 40" LCD. I was an early adopter (back in late 2007), but it's time for a serious upgrade.

Some notes about the dream setup mentioned:

The Oppo Blu-ray player has some sophisticated upscaling technology both to 1080p and 4k. Good upscaling can work wonders. Bad upscaling is just bad. A lot goes into the algorithms. It also features HDMI in, which allows other sources to be piped into the player to benefit from its image processing technology.

The JVC eshift-2 projector then receives the 1080p signal from the Oppo player, and upscales it to 4k applying its own sophisticated methods which use a 21 x 21 pixel matrix to intelligently generate the upscaled pixels. It then applies a rapid projection of the original 1080p image followed by a projection of the upscaled pixels shifted by half a pixel up and to the left. Regardless of what you might intuit from this description, the resulting image is astounding. There appears to be more detail, very sharp edges, and it all has a wonderful organic feel to it, rather than some of the over processed imagery you see in other processed and upscaled images.

It really helps if you become more participative when exploring Asian cinema, or any cinema outside of the Hollywood machine. What I mean is, build a familiarity with the director and his favorite themes. Try and understand the director's message, his methods, his style, and so on. Build a familiarity with the actors. Build a familiarity with the origins of the films and their themes through an improved understanding of their time and setting.

Quentin Tarantino helps to give some background to Wong Kar-Wai in that video link I posted. But that's only a start. Asian film scholar Tony Rayns has done some nice commentaries and discussions on Wong Kar-Wai films, as well as other Asian directors. David Bordwell has also done some nice studies of Wong Kar-Wai films. Wong's films bear study and analysis. You'll find Chungking Express to be fairly light, but his other films are pretty deep.

Furthermore, Wong Kar-Wai films have distinctive style of cinematography and style of cutting, in addition to a non linear form that can be simultaneously puzzling and interesting. You're in for a cerebral and visually beautiful journey, not to mention amazing soundtracks.

These must be behind Avatar though, since you said Avatar is the best movie ever. Here's a question for you: what is it that makes Avatar the best movie ever?

2001 is a classic I love that! It is what I imagine the future to be like.

I would like to hear an answer to this question aswel. It did have the best 3D effects in a movie so far imo. Most 3D movies just have a little depth in them, but Avatar really utilised the possibilities 3D has to offer.
