I've tried to be really harsh on myself and only include movies i know i could watch again again and again

ghostbusters i missed but its in there!

Yay! Your a Wayne's World fan!! That movie rocks! All of the other movies you listed are awesome too!

Totally! It's one of those films i saw when i was younger, and still love to this day, in fact i've seen it twice this year already, no idea how many over my life time, but a lot !

Nice list!

I love this list. It's a lot of fun.

cheers dude! i enjoyed sorting them in order and picking the quotes

Awesome top 100, man!

Dr. Horrible! Yay!

Also glad to see that someone else loves Men in Black.

Oh totally with the expection of Hancock, i always enjoy Will Smith movies. He has so much charisma, Men In Black is his best movie IMO, but i also loved I Am Legend, I,Robot, & The Pursuit of Happyness

Why Slumdog Millionaire? I find it to be average. I'm Indian, and I've seen enough Bollywood films to be slightly jaded by the melodramatic, requiring-suspension-of-belief plot set midst the poverty and the gangsters.

Thats fair enough, i will admit to having not seen any bollywood movies (not that i wouldn't be open to it) however thought yes it does require a lot of suspension of belief but once i got into it, i personally found it too be very moving.

I felt it was an average movie adapting Bollywood formulas for a western audience. If you want to see a piece of true Indian genius, watch the Apu Trilogy by Satyajit Ray, the first movie especially. Also try Rang de Basanti by Aamir Khan.

Maybe this will make my point clearer.
Matthew Schneeberger states: "Say an Indian director travelled to New Orleans for a few months to film a movie about Jamal Martin, an impoverished African American who lost his home in Hurricane Katrina, who once had a promising basketball career, but who -- following a drive-by shooting -- now walks with a permanent limp, whose father is in jail for selling drugs, whose mother is addicted to crack cocaine, whose younger sister was killed by gang-violence, whose brother was arrested by corrupt cops, whose first born child has sickle cell anaemia, and so on. The movie would be widely panned and laughed out of theatres."

Sorry for jumping in, but I think that quote actually makes your point far less clearly than you were making it, and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind explaining it. The quote seems to imply that Slumdog Millionaire is nothing but an endless string of melodramatic things that are associated with happening to impoverished Indians. Is that how you actually felt about the film? I think that actually might apply better to the Apu trilogy to be honest. I thought for all its faults, Slumdog was nothing if not varied in tone. Bad things happen, good things happen, neutral things happen, Jamal is victimized, Jamal avoids being victimized, Jamal uses his street smarts to get ahead, etc. etc.

Not that I'm saying the Apu trilogy is a bad series, but I don't think that the film that Schneeberger describes would necessarily be bad either. I mean, the film Push is about an overweight African-American teen girl named Precious who is living in Harlem, illiterate, impoverished, bitter, abused by both her parents, pregnant with her father's child for the second time, and so on. The film garnered massive acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival, becoming one of very few films to win both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the festival, and also did I mention that it co-stars Mariah Carey... and Lenny Kravitz? So it's all how the film is made.

Ok, maybe it didn't get my point across.

I feel SM has covered ground that has been covered before. Hasn't India's poverty been talked about enough?

In SM we see Jamal being tortured by policemen and given shocks, his mother killed by Hindus in riots, him eking out an existence at a huge garbage dump living under a tent, gangsters masquerading as running an adoption center picking up vulnerable children and forcing them to beg, blinding them and selling them into prostitution, the elder brother getting into a life of crime, getting drunk on power....

Yeah, it does sure Jamal and Salim making money by being tour guides and this and that, and Jamal ends up being a chai-wallah and then he wins the game show. Isn't that like Precious winning American Idol? Is the storyline plausible?

Yes, I felt the film was melodramatic, designed to tug at heart strings. Its sort of a Bollywood formula, to have all these emotional, crazy twists and turns in the plot, like Jamal finding the love of his life, his brother Salim doing one last good deed, and her falling into his arms at the end of the film. So the whole good things-bad things twists and turns is, atleast I feel, a sort of formula. Also, maybe what you see in the film, the slums and the life there is new for you, its novel, for me it isn't.

This is minor, but it feels rather weird, when the film suddenly shifts from Hindi to English. Hearing perfect English from Jamal and Salim feels odd.

My point is, the film is ok, its average, but whatever it is, it definitely does not deserve the attention and awards it has garnered.

Thank you, that was much more clear than the quote.

I don't even necessarily disagree with anything you're saying. I just think the film wasn't meant to be taken at such face value. The film is a commentary on - and tribute to - Bollywood and so it should be everything that the Bollywood formulas are. It's the ultimate Bollywood movie wrapped up with scenes of violence that are far more harrowing than most Indian film ever shows (correct me if I'm wrong about this) and scenes that comment on the role of such escapist entertainment in the characters' lives. I'm sorry if that's a bit of a cop-out.

Always glad to have an intelligent discussion :)

If it is a tribute to Bollywood, shouldn't the Bollywood films that are being paid tribute be honoured instead?

I suppose its just that the film has novelty value, and that its adapted to western audiences? For example with much of the dialogue in English. If an Indian director had directed the film instead of Danny Boyle and the entire film was in Hindi, would it have got less attention?

The scenes of violence are definitely more harrowing than those in most Indian films.

In the many instances he takes off his clothes, he is revealed to have a very hairy chest. Much of his attitude toward relationships could be a parody of Bond's lack of reflection with regard to the loss of a woman.marirea sanilor
