Just because you were too high to understand it doesn't make it over-rated.
Whats not to understand, it isnt a very complex movie. Its not like it doesnt write the twist in big neon letters across the screen, I thought the movie was O-K. But so many people worship the damn film and it doesnt deserve it.

How? It's not the best movie by any means but it's a solid movie that portrays something that a lot of people can relate to.

Full metal Jacket = an ok film...not nearly the best Vietnam film though. Apoc is so much better. Not worthy of a Top 50 of all time list though IMHO.

Momento = An ok film, again not worty of a TOP 50 film.

City of God = Again, not sure where you are going with this list....an ok film.

Shawshank= one of the best of the 90's...it could be on the all time list IMO.

Lord of the Rings...I wont even go into that.

Did you people actually watch memento and Cityu of God?

As for Nerv that twist is clear about a few minutes before its anounced, but it's very well made, Norton is perfect and the concept itsself is intriguing. The idea of how far a person can take their imagination, add to that the emptiness of a materialistic life that all of these white collar workers are floking to these clubs that offer an aalternate path and then they criticism of succumbing to mass movements. The film is a very potent piece.

As for Scarface the move does nothing to make itsself stick out as a top movie yet is often mentioned amongst best movies every threads, which it is far from being, thus it is over-rated.

I thought that those were a little excessive, I wasn't complaining but without it it would have been subtler and more realistic, thus even more powerful, atleast to me, although I understand that to make the movie more far reaching they needed to simplify it a little.

The problem with polls like that is that few have seen the greater movies like Pi, Requiem for a Dream, City of God and Memento, thus they would get out voted by crap like LOTR.

Out of the major ones listed, I voted for Godfather. But some of my favorite movies include:

Training Day
Lord of the Rings:ROTK
Shawshank Redemption
Apocolypse Now



I also like, just a little bit, Grapes of Wrath, with Henry Fonda

Largely b/c few had seen them. If you run a pole who'se seen 3 of these City of God, Memento, Pi and Requiem, I gaurantee the overwhelming majority would have to vote no.

What does everyone else think of the Apocalypse Now ending? Its good but it seemed like the movie went from a war movie to Lord of the flies.

There is a difference between best and favorite. My favorite my favorite movie is either Memento or Primal Fear. The best movie is Casablanca.

Requiem is about addiction and for Pi all I can say is that it is about a Mathematician who is exploring chaos theory and is really a piece of art on mans pursuit of knowledge.
