Well we all watch movies of some sort right? Well here are my top ten in no paticular order. They are movies I love and have watched many times over. I hope that you will find movies you have seen or find something new to watch. So here we go.
V for Vendetta
A shadowy freedom fighter known only as “V” uses terrorist tactics to fight against his totalitarian society. Upon rescuing a girl from the secret police, he also finds his best chance at having an ally.
This is one of my favorites because it’s gritty, packed with action, and science fiction all wrapped up into one. This is based off a comic done by Alan Moore. It is rated R but for obvious reasons such as violence, gore, sexual content, you get the picture. V for Vendetta stars Natile Portman, Hugo Weaving and Stephen Fry.
Repo! The Genetic Opera
In the year 2056 – the not so distant future – an epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants, for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men. In a world where surgery addicts are hooked on painkilling drugs and murder is sanctioned by law, a sheltered young girl searches for the cure to her own rare disease as well as information about her family’s mysterious history. After being sucked into the haunting world of GeneCo, she is unable to turn back, as all of her questions will be answered at the wildly anticipated spectacular event: The Genetic Opera.
This is a favorite because its not your atypical movie. Its more along the lines of a rock opera horror movie. It stars Alexa Vega known for such movies as Spy Kids, Sleepover, and Odd Girl Out. Vega plays Shilo who goes on a mission to find a cure for her blood disease. She meets a grave robber who basically is a supplier of a drug called Zydrate. Amber Sweet played by Paris Hilton is addicted to it and sugery. Zydrate is a painkiller, along the lines of anesthesia. It puts you under, but the only way to get it is from…. dead bodies. Its rated R for drug use, sexual content, language, blood and of course gore.
Elvira:Mistress of the Dark
When her Great Aunt dies, famed horror hostess Elvira heads for the uptight New England town of Falwell to claim her inheritance of a haunted house, a witch’s cookbook and a punk rock poodle. But once the stuffy locals get an eyeful of the scream queen’s ample assets, all hell busts out and breaks loose. Can the Madonna Of The Macabre find love with a studly cinema owner, avoid her creepy Great Uncle, titillate the town’s teens and become a Las Vegas dance sensation all without being burned alive at the stake?
This is a favorite simply because I fell in love with Elvira upon seeing this movie. The character is funny, scarastic and of course drop dead sexy in a gothic kind of way. This movie is extremely funny and it was made in the 80’s. What can be better than that?
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
A newly engaged couple have a breakdown in an isolated area and must pay a call to the bizarre residence of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
With a knockout cast featuring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Nell Campbell, and Meatloaf. You have the movie with the longest running theater showing and the biggest cult following. While it is a musical don’t let that turn you off from the movie. It has tranvestites, Rocky Horror, great tunes, and weirdness that I can’t even begin to describe. It is a great watch for children as old as 14.
A young boy is arrested by the US Secret Service for writing a computer virus and is banned from using a computer until his 18th birthday. Years later, he and his new-found friends discover a plot to unleash a dangerous computer virus, but they must use their computer skills to find the evidence while being pursued by the Secret Service and the evil computer genius behind the virus.
Hackers is one of my favorites because its got action and comedy. Well with Jonny Lee Miller, Angelina Jolie, and Matthew Lillard its bound for action and comedy. Dade Murphy played by Miller, is in a new high school and recently got his access to a computer back. After creating a virus that took down a lot of computers, he’s back into the underground world of hacking. Meeting up with Kate Libby played by Jolie and Emmaunel Goldstine played by Lillard, they take down a corporation. It is really a great movie and worth the watch.
The Boondock Saints Series
Fraternal twins set out to rid Boston of the evil men operating there while being tracked down by an FBI agent. The MacManus brothers are living a quiet life in Ireland with their father, but when they learn their beloved priest has been killed by mob forces, the duo return to Boston to bring justice to those responsible.
Two great movies, that have been a little spread out. The first one having been filmed in ‘99 and the second one filmed in ‘09. The movies follows the McManus brothers who take it upon them selves to rid Boston of evil men. While filled with action language and crude jokes it is still a great watch and a wonderful two movies.
A Hawaiian girl adopts an unusual pet who is actually an notorious extra-terrestrial fugitive from the law.
Just a super cute movie from Disney. I love this movie because it instills the values of family and being together. While it is considered a childrens movie I adore it. Lilo is a strange girl who falls in love with extra-terrestial expierment 626, or as she calls him Stitch. Stitch has been programed to destroy, but something Lilo does instills in him that destruction isn’t everything.
The Hangover Series
A Las Vegas-set comedy centered around three groomsmen who lose their about-to-be-wed buddy during their drunken misadventures, then must retrace their steps in order to find him. Two years after the bachelor party in Las Vegas, Phil, Stu, Alan, and Doug jet to Thailand for Stu’s wedding. Stu’s plan for a subdued pre-wedding brunch, however, goes seriously awry.
A incredibly raunchy two movie comedy, The hangover is something else to hit the comedic genera. The story line can only be done so many times but these two times were both unique and histerical. A great watch for 17+. It’s got plenty of raunchy jokes, nudity, drugs, you name it, this movie has it.
Three band members hoping for a big break head to a radio station to play their demo tape and wind up holding everyone hostage with plastic guns when the head DJ refuses to play them.
The band The Lone Rangers are just trying to get their music heard. Adam Sandler, Brendon Fraser, and Steve Buscemi play the members of the band. When they take over a local raido station things go from crazy to insane. They use fake guns filled with hot sauce and it’s your typical funny movie.
My Favorite Martian
A martian lands on Earth and makes friends with a reporter.
Christoper Lloyd and Jeff Daniels are great in this movie. They way they play off eachother and all the crazy alien things that happen, its a wonder I don’t find alliens in my cereal. A great family freindly movie and one you won’t grow tired of.
