My 15 favourite films as they stand now (see the list can change quite abit at times);
15. Silent Hill- it's nice to see some effort put into a videogame film and this one really tries, it doesn't quite work but it gets some of the atmosphere of the game and a little of the psychological horror. Silent Hill Revelation however can burn in the everlasting fires of FILM HELL!!!
14. Orca- a film where a whale has revenge on a man, downright silly. Their are a few guilty pleasures on this list I'm afraid to say.
13. Dogma- a well written jibe at the catholic faith. I still can't believe they got away with this at times, it's really insulting at times, yet it never truly condemns religion.
12. Wreck it Raplh- a good film, like the environments and the characters
11. The gate- a child more or less opens the gates of hell. and true it has a stupid stupid impossible happy ending, but the effects save the film.
10. Let the right one in (not the crappy American remake! that can burn in the everlasting fires of FILM HELL!!!*) - a subtitled vampire film that gets the downright creepiness of vampires right. One of the best vampire films I've ever seen.
09. Planet Hulk - it's a film where the Hulk is a character and not just a monster whom breaks everything, an adaptation of one of my favourite Hulk stories and it works really well.
08. Never ending story - from a time long before CGI took over almost all special effects, and where fantasy films where still plentiful and good. This wonderful film came into being.
This is the one of two films on this list I'm willing to defend from remakes, meaning that if some movie studio of today tries to remake them, I'll hunt them down and shout at the people trying to. Not an effective route to go but I can't go killing people, even though I'd want to at times.
07. An American werewolf in London - it's dark sense of humour, believable characters and the single best werewolf transformation EVER!!!
I'm not kidding here, even with today's CGI super effects, no one has managed to best it, in terms of transformations. I doubt if it can be done, but I live in hope.
06. Chocolate - an actually really surprising great martial arts film.
05. Whisper of the heart - a touching love story from studio ghibli
04. Big trouble in little China - this is just a funny over the top film, a guilty pleasure really.
03. Pinocchio - one of disney's best, if not the best. It's downright dark as Hell in places.
Over 70 years old now and still manages to be better than most films of today.
02. Laputa castle in the sky- light hearted sky pirates film from studio ghibli again.
01. Shawshank Redemption- oh dear, how do I describe how I feel about this film? so far it's been the only prison film I've liked.
*= Film Hell is a place that I hope all crappy remakes of good films are sent to once they've been released, mind you this place I'm thinking of is the bargain buckets you sometimes see that mostly only have really bad films in them.
And now because I'm feeling quite evil and because I would really like to see their top 15 films as they stand now I tag;
