The ONE Greatest Film (or series) of All Time

Recommended Posts

Jordan

If you had to pick one, and I mean only one movie or movie series/trilogy/whatever that is the greatest of all time...forgetting the critics that claim its Citizen Kane...forgetting the teenagers who think its Fight Club...what is it?

 

What is the greatest film or film series/trilogy of all time?

 

Here's the thing though...you can only pick one. Not "well this is probably my favorite but ____ is in a close second."

 

Break all bonds to every movie except the one.

 

Only one...

 

Only one......

 

My choice: The Lord of the Rings

 

Reason: There is no comparison to almost any other creation or thing ever in this world. It's bigger than just a film or film trilogy...it is perhaps the greatest form of art and/or entertainment ever bestowed on human kind.

 

Wow Jordan calm down.  You are going a bit overboard, don't you think?

I just got done re-watching all three extended editions and was just in so much awe because I had forgotten over the past two years just how stunning the three films are.

 

There is no way you can judge film without seeing the king: The Lord of the Rings

 

(if you were offended by my Fight Club comment, i really don't care...)

Technical Difficulty

For film itself - Scarface, put together perfectly.

 

Trilogy - Godfather trilogy because they took the mafia scene from back then and made it into a great movie. Definately the Godfathers.- Party on Garth

I would have to say Pulp Fiction.

 

When it comes to witty, clever dialogue, great acting & edge of your seat thrill, there really is no other movie quite like it.

 

How many times have you heard yourself repeating catchphrases from the script.

 

Excellent.

I can watch The Godfather any day of week no matter how many times I've seen it before. Forget about the mafia story, it's one of the greatest dramas of all time in my opinion. Do I have to include the whole trilogy or can I just pick the first one? If I had to pick a trilogy I'd pick LOTR as well.

Enter the Dragon, because God stars in it.

 

LOTR trilogy was awesome, and I hate those stupid fantasy kind of movies.

Honestly, I don't think I could pick one. Even if you insist on it Jordan. For trilogies, it's a very tough choice between Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and the Lord of the Rings for me. Can't decide. I'm saying those three. tounge2.gif

lol

 

 

 

I'm going to be different to everyone else and say the Trilogy to be the Mariachi Trilogy by Robert Rodriguez. El Mariachi, Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico all kick ass.

 

When it comes to a single film I would say Goodfellas with Taxi Driver coming closely behind.

Aww, I can only pick one? sad.gif Well, I guess it would be a gangster type film, but there are so many good ones! So, I'm going to have to say Scarface. Excellent film, great action and storyline, good acting, the whole package, I'd definately watch it again. biggrin.gif - Mike
