“The Lighthouse! I remember when it came out and I thought ‘Boy that seems dumb and I don’t really like Robert Pattinson’ but after hearing that it gets crazy I had to watch. Now it’s one of my favorite movies, I don’t want to give too much away, but I am fond of the lobster”

“Sunset Boulevard

All my life I’ve heard about this film and the other day I saw that it was available to stream so I watched and was enthralled. Such a great movie.”

The Thin Man.

“The Elephant Man is genuinely heartbreaking.”

“Raging Bull is more modern than most of the films on this list, and the lack of colour is a stylistic choice. It’s brutal, unflinching and deeply upsetting.”

“Seven Samurai, original 1954 version”


“Night of the living dead”

“Double Indemnity”

“Schindler’s List. Best movie I’ll only ever watch once.”

“To Kill A Mockingbird

I’m ashamed that I didn’t think of this one for my comment. This is my favorite book, and one of the few movie adaptations that I think actually did the book justice.”

“Young Frankenstein”

“Arsenic and Old Lace

One of my favs. Cary Grant is so over the top (apparently even he thought so) but I love it. Cracks me up.”


I had the pleasure of going into this movie without knowing anything else but the shower scene and my god, what a thrill ride. Go into this movie as movie with as little information as you can, and you’ll be in for a real treat.”

“The Day The Earth Stood Still”

“Tetsuo:: The Iron Man (1989).

It’s uh… It’s a black and white movie in the literal sense, but not in the “it’s an older film that was shot in black and white and therefore it’s tame by today’s standards” sense. It is, without exaggeration, one of the most deranged and out-there movies I’ve ever seen.”



  1. Touch of Evil
    Shadows and Fog

  2. How about M, Metropolis, Nosferatu, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, these were all great movies.
