Gods and Monsters (1998)
  Brendan Fraiser the most underrated actor alive today. Ian Mckellen is James Whale, and the strength of the source material (Whale's life and movies) make this movie wonderful.
The Seventh Seal (Criterion Special Edition) (1957)
  A man seeks answers about life, death, the existence of god, all while trying to prolong his own life by challenging death to a game of chess.
Manhattan (1979)
  I like the Gershwin and the cinematography.
Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972)
Not Rated
  One of two Werner Herzog films on my list. Klaus Kinski has one of the best performances I've seen by any actor, ever. I suppose it's easy to portray someone going mad, if you are already mad yourself.
A Christmas Story (1983)
  great movie that is built on a string of perfect moments. You know those things that you can say, "boy, i sure can relate to that", but you could never portray them on screen like Ralphie did.
The Tin Drum (Criterion Collection) (1979)
  My Favorite scene in the film is when Oskar is underneath the bleachers at the Nazi rally thing and starts playing his drum and reduces the rally to chaos. The official band loses concentration and the Nazi officials can't keep in step. Transcendental!
Taxi Driver (1976)
  Back when Deniro was in good films, instead of clunkers like Analyze This. Travis is fucking feed up, he sees a darkness in the streets of NYC, whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick, venal.
Office Space (1999)
  I think this is the most recent movie on my list. I don't really like most comedies, but I like Office Space because it's a slightly skewed vision of reality. Not too far off base that I lose interest though.
Even Dwarfs Started Small (1970)
Not Rated
  Another Werner Herzog film. This film has some of the littlest little people I've ever seen in it. It's surreal how much chaos this little folks can cause. The tiny Hombré has the best laugh ever too, at the end of the film,he laughs at a defecating camel
Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989)
Not Rated
  Surreal. I can't think of any other way to describe this movie. It uses stop action to animate the man turning into a scrap heap. It's like watching Gumby on some really good acid. Great ending when he faces the evil that lives inside of him.
Clerks (1994)
  The only Kevin Smith movie that I would consider one of my favorites. The rest of his were disappointing to me.
God of Cookery (1997)
  One of my favorite Asian films. I like Stephen Chow, and I like any film that breaks out into song when you least expect it. The ending battle is great, but the judge steals the show.
Freaks (1932)
Not Rated
  Real sideshow freaks used! and the ending is one of the creepiest moments ever captured on film.
