Who are the Mount Rushmore of movies in your opinion?
2 outta 4 ain't bad. I'm not sure I trust anybody that doesn't have Rudy Ruetteger in their top 4.
2001: A Space Odyssey
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
maybe? shit, I dunno...lists er' tough
Airplane to me is the greatest comedy and impacted the genre so immensely. While it's a Wonderful Life still holds up as a great family movie that never stops teaching life lessons.
Airplane and MPaTHG are neck and neck. I give the edge to MP on seniority only.
Airplane comes back to Netflix tomorrow, I think my 8 year old daughter is ready to watch it.
I think you have to break it down by genre. Just saying movies in general could take it all over the spectrum.
Mine were different genres, action drama/ comedy/ family and sci fi.
I understand, but I think it would be better to do the Rushmore of comedy, the Rushmore of action, etc...
It's just very difficult for me to compare which is the better movie between a comedy and a drama.
Drama - Gone with the Wind
Comedy - Office Space
Science Fiction - Star Wars
Jaws was one of those movies that impacted people for a long time.
Under that pretense. I would see Jaws as one of the 4.
GF Pt II
Lawrence of Arabia
Bridge on the River Kwai
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Oooh Aliens...I'll replace 2001 with that. Thanks
It's lowkey the most impactful movie of all time, IMO.
The music, the literal effect on society...I read some conspiracy shit years ago, and I forget where or what, but it suggested that was the movie that made the CIA take notice, and look at film as a social engineering construct, and an investment.
Funny that it was pretty much ignored and forgotten until they forgot to keep the copywrite on it allowing tv networks to play it for free decades later.
I'll go Shawshank Redemption, Goodfellas, Pulp Fiction, and The Hangover.
Fuck me, now I'll be called a racist................Blazing Saddles
Nice list..........Goodfellas sure is a great movie along with tShank.
