#1 Postby compassionategirl » Sun Jun 26, 2005 2:57 pm

What are your top 10 favourite sings and movies (that you think deserve the title of classics). You think you guyts are weird? Just check out the varied taste below!

SONGS

Stairway to Heaven - Zeplin

Dancing in the Dark - Springsteen

I want to know what love is - by Foreigner (Classic song. Love it).

YOU shook me all night long - ACDC

Unforgiven (Metallica)

That other really popular Metaliics song but I cannot remeber its name.

Feel like Making Love - Bad Company (classic!!!!)

Angel (or is it "Angie") by the Rolling Stones

Africa by Toto

Eye of the Tiger (Rockey song)

Break my Stride - Matthew Wilder

Don't you want me baby - Human League

Fly Me to the Moon - Frank Sinatra

When Doves Cry - Prince

Cryptonite - Three Doors Down

Sweet Home Alabamaa - by ???

That popular song by Stain (or it is Stained) - cannot remember the title but some of the lines are "It's been awhile since i ...."

okay that was more than 10.

Hard to choose just 10 (or 11). I also LOVE some Lenny Kravitz songs, Depeche Mode, Snow, New Order, Creed, Pearl Jam, Gypsy Kings, Michael jackson, prince, Madonna, Duran Duran, Springsteen, Diana Krawl, The Cult, and even The Platters!!!

KINDS of music: classic rock, alternative, some metal, jazz, pop, etc. basically everything but country and rap.

MOVIES (haven't seen too many in my life but these are my favs):

1) The Sound of Music (please refrain from all laughter)

2) Natural Born Killers

3) Mary Poppins (ya, I'm weird).

4) 21 grams

5) Goodfellas

6) All the Godfathers

7) All the Rockies

8) Raging Bull

9) I am Sam.

10) Rain Man

11) Heat (went over again)

12) Scarface (hard to stick to just 10 - I love pretty much all of Pacino's movies!)

13) Pulp fiction


FAVOURITE MALE ACTORS:

1) Sean Penn

2) Al Pacino

3) Robert Dinero

4) Tim Robbins

5) Christpher Walken

6) Harrison Ford

7) Mel Gibson

8) Ray Liotta ( amazing actor)

9) Johnny Depp (smokin)

10) Edward Norton

BEST COMEDIC ACTOR

Chris Tucker, hands down!


TOP FEMALE ACTORS

1. JULIETE LEWIS (probably one of the most talented actresses, but not given enough credit or recognition. Her portryal of "Malorie Knox" was flawless in Natural Born Killers - no other actress could have pulled it off like she did. Oscar award worthy performance). I know this movie by heart now!!

O ya, I would also have to add to my fav songs (thereby way exceeding the limit which I set) Sinead O'Conner's "Troy" - if you haven't heard it, you should. And "I'm on Fire" by Springsteen.

I guess my age is showing!!

SO, TALK ABOUT A WEIRD VARIETY OF TASTE!!

Ya, I'd definitely have to ad Eminem (especially "Lose Yourself")
and Rob Thomas "Lonley NO More" and Black Eyed peas (Don't phunk with my heart).

My list was based more on what I thought were "Classic" songs.

Ya, 80s in my opinion was the best decade for music. 8)

I LOVE Julliette Lewis too. I would logve to see her ad her band just to meet her.

I think she is one of the best actresses ever in Hollywood but dont really know if she can sing all that well.

Did you see Natural Born Killers? That was a masterpiece acting job on her part!!!!!

You know what, she/they were with the Warped Tour here in Houston last year, and I didn't even realize it was that Juliette Lewis until we'd left. :) Didn't even watch them although we weren't watching anyone else at the time they were on.

Did you see the movie Dan?

What an underrated actress she is. She should have won an oscar for her brilliant portryal of serial killer Malorie Knoxx in Natural Born Killers. That was an Oliver Stone movie. I love Oliver Stone movies.

The whole cast was brilliant - even Woody Harelson who played her boyfriend pyshco killer Mickie Knoxx. I never knew that he could act until I saw him in that movie. What a great performance.

I have seen natural born killers a while ago. It was a good movie, although I do not have an eye for what is a good actor or acress. And about her band, I have not heard verry good things about it. But I have not heard any of their songs, so I will wait until I do.
She was also in Old School, but in that movie Will Ferrell stands out the most:) You probably have seen Old School, but if you have not I recommend you go watch it right away!!!

Yeah, I've seen it a couple of times. I had to watch it a second time to be sure that I disliked it as much as I thought I had. I usually love Oliver Stone, but that one was too much. His next one was even worse, haven't seen Hannibal yet.

See if you can find Tarentino's original screenplay for NBK, it's much better (IMO) than the film.

Juliette is a great young actress, though. My favorite with her was her debut, Scorsese's Cape Fear.

Well, when I say I lobve the movie Natural Born Killers, obviously I dont mean I love mass murder.

But that movie was brilliantly written, directed and above all, the performances rendered by Julliete Lewis and Woody Harrleson as Mickey and Malorie Knoxx were outstanding. These two were PERFEC for the roles, and no actress in Hollywood could have portrayed Malorie Knoxx as briliantly and convincingly as Julliette Lewis. I have to admit I like the "alternative ending" to the movie that is featured on the DVD - directors cut version.

I am curious to know what you didnt like about the movie and if you agree that Julietee's performance in it was UNBELIEVABLY brilliant?

Ya she was awesome in Scorsese's Cape Fear.

I havent heard her sing either except that time in the movie when she was alone in her cell after they got caught and she was singing "I guess I was born, naturally born, born bad." Apparently that was really her singing and she wrote that song herself for the movie. I thought she had a pretty good voice, but I dont think her band is the greatest.

also, where can I get Tarantino's screenplay of it? I was looking for it last year but couldnt find it anywhere :?
