    Favorite? - Jurassic Park. Seeing that in the theatre as a young 12 year old nerd completely changed my life and kindled my interest and obsession with movies. Others include Godfather 1 and 2. Just cinematic perfection. And Interstellar

    Back to the Future trilogy



    A great trilogy that I count as one movie because they are so entwined with each other, and also have one of the best soundtracks ever by Alan Silvestri.

    Indiana Jones and the last crusade. A brilliant mix of action and humour.

    Merci beaucoup, Macleod.

    It just struck me how very many of my favorites were made in England and/or by English authors/actors/directors.

    If I had to choose only one, which is like asking a parent to state the name of their favorite offspring at a family dinner, I would have to say Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai."

    The first time I watched this film I was literally floored. The scene where the rowdy lodgers are making fun of the farmers because they eat millet to make sure they can feed the samurai they're hoping to enlist rice had me on the floor crying. I couldn't believe it. Kurosawa's ability to reach out, grab my emotions, and elicit the response he wanted me to have was unexpected, powerful, and genuine. Later in the movie when Mifune goes on his rant about farmers it happened again. There are also many scenes in his movie "Red Beard" that have the same effect on me. The climatic scene in the more recent movie "A Monster Calls" had the same, unexpected, emotional response from me....I fell out of my seat onto the living room flooring sobbing like a baby. Don't get me wrong, I don't watch movies for this kind of visceral reaction nor do I judge a movie by this. I'm probably more in the "emotionally unavailable" category than I am in the "sentimental slob" category, so this kind of cathartic response is burned in my memory and dear to my heart.
    I love music. I want music. I need music.
