I'm going to Roger Ebert this b*tch. I should do them all like the clockwork orange one. Kind of in order from most awesomest to almost most awesomest:

1. Crimson Tide

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112740/

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS4I2Z1RBIw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS4I2Z1RBIw</a>


This is probably my favorite movie. Every time it's on I can't help but watch it, and I've seen it probably > 30 times. The acting is just on point. You can feel the tension heat up between Gene Hackman and Denzel the whole movie, until it boils over hardcore for the last 1/3rd of the film. The concept of the movie is also damn interesting: How can they both be right & both be wrong aboard a nuclear sub? This movie is so damn intense.





2. Heat

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113277/

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xbBLJ1WGwQ" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xbBLJ1WGwQ</a>


This movie is just ridiculous. Everyone talks about Pacino in scarface, godfather, etc, but this has to be his best performance. This is the typical "torn between Good & Evil movie", where you find yourself rooting for Good and for evil throughout the film. De`Niro & his crew of career criminals, representing "evil" depending on what side of the fence you are on, live out the anti-establishment dream by intelligently & carefully planning heists throughout the movie, yet making very small mistakes at inopportune times. Small mistakes that Pacino & his crew of law enforcers look to exploit, in order to take De`Niro & his crew into custody. Although each character in this movie is hardened, most of them are vulnerable in the "love department", which is an all too real twist considering the loneliness of each profession, but it's not portrayed irresponsibly.

Beyond that, this movie has the best bank robbery scene in the history of cinema.







3. Fight Club

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0137523/

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8FRBYOFu2w" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8FRBYOFu2w</a>


No comment.






4. A Clockwork Orange

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066921/

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7fO3bzPeBQ" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7fO3bzPeBQ</a>


For the vast majority of people watching this film, they will be thoroughly entertained, which is somewhat interesting considering the senseless violence, hooliganism, intense imagery, & mind control tactics that take place. Everyone will leave this film with a different interpretation, including a satisfaction for various individuals violated in the film, depending on your subconscious moral code. But that's what makes this film great, that in a world where violence is so frowned upon & outlawed, there exists a thirst for violence in each human, no matter good or evil, that has to be quenched at one point or another. The hooligans go around hooliganning, the bobbies & mind-control doctors go around beating & mind-raping the hooligans. The cure, in this film, for hooliganism, is to force-feed the individual to immense amounts of violent sensory overload. After treatment, at the very thought of a violent act, the reformed hooligan's own organism will become sick, vomit, and lack any sort of will to enact a crime. Here is where you get the title, "A Clockwork (machine) Orange (organic)", which meaning comes from the ability to control, like a machine, a human organism. Re: The system.

I thought you were being ironic, but then I saw Toy Story 3, which is a legitimately excellent film, so I do not know what to make of this post.
