1) Fast Times at Ridgemont High. This movie was awesome in so many ways. Ground breaking in that it addressed issues that weren't being openly covered in movies at the time, such as the abortion issue. It was also one of the first movies with frontal male nudity. Plus the soundtrack. And the fact that Robert Romanus was hysterical. There were so many great actors that got their start on this movie.
2) Eraserhead. David Lynch's first foray into filmmaking. My dad owned movie theatres all while I was growing up. He owned a repertory film house when I was young and I saw lots of movies I probably shouldn't have at that age. This movie left an impression on me. It scared me and grossed me out and fascinated me at the same time. It made me realize that a movie could be art and didn't necessarily have to make much sense in a traditional way to be great.
3) The Rocky Horror Picture Show - As a kid this was just a funny movie with characters that dressed funny and great music and strange events, I didn't really get the sex part of the story seeing I saw it when I was around 8. But as I got older I'd go see the midnight showings and dress up and get right into it. I loved the music and had the soundtrack and would play it in the car all the time. It's a guilty pleasure but there's never really been something else that compares to it for a movie experience where the audience is directly involved.
4) My Life Without Me. Sarah Polley and Mark Ruffalo's characters literally broke my heart watching this movie. I'm a sucker for a good tear jerker and this was just a really moving story to me. I could watch it over and over. Julian Richings is fabulous in it too.
Others I could watch over and over include Almost Famous, The Professional, The Departed, and The Shawshank Redemption. To me they are all great stories that are well told on film.
Damn thanks, I've been meaning to see My Life Without Me. I love Ruffalo.
If I had an interview on Friday, and they said they'll back to me next week how long should I not worry about it? I know wrong thread, but I need to chill out.
If I could live anywhere in the US it would be in NYC. For the theatre and music and all the great things to do and see there, I can't think of any other place I'd rather be. Central Park? Hell yes. No question.
I come from a Danish background from my Dad - but pure Danish born citizens really seem to have a lot of over-pride. My spouse is Danish born, a full Dane so the Danes would classify him as "perfect" Dane. I'm only half so I dont' qualify. I've actually heard them use the "perfect" term. They also don't allow dual citizenship. If you want to switch, your booted. While their country has a lot going for it from a social programs perspective and a wonderful lifestyle for its people, they can sometimes be a bit snobby about it, in an exclusive club sort of a way. And they are taxed up the ying yang for it.
