Favourite movies by theme
« on: September 28, 2016, 01:40:23 PM »
In this topic, I'll post different lists of my 10 favourite movies, by theme. Theme may be a genre, a country of origin, an actor, a director or anything that connects different movies together.

Movies may have different genres, for example, and my lists will take in account the relevancy. For example I'll have Titanic in my disaster movies list but not in my romance movies list , but I agree that it could be the contrary for somebody else.

I begin with science-fiction movies :

1 - Avatar


2 - Alien


3 - The Empire Strikes Back


4 - Interstellar


5 - The Martian


6 - Terminator 2


7 - Abyss


8 - Prometheus


9 - Ex Machina


10 - Lucy

Really like what you have done here :) Gives me alot of good ideas. Got a stupid question for you tho. I see you count the movies  from 1-10, does that mean number 1 is your favorite? And 10 the least favorite of the pack? Or is it just a random number?

Well, I try to list them from the favourite (1) to the least one (10). But to be honest,  this could change depending on my mood, and there are many that I like that are not in those lists, since 10 movies is very few for some genres. When we are on a by actor theme, it is easier since less movies are concerned.

so I would love to see your list for horror...

Here it is. Note that I consider "Alien" movies more as science-fiction than horror, so they are not in this list.

1 - Rosemary's Baby
   

2 - Hannibal

   
3 - Antichrist

   
4 - The Ring   


5 - The Devils

   
6 - Hexen bis aufs blut gequält   

   
7 - Los Ojos de Julia   

   
8 - Haute tension

   
9 - Captifs

   
10 - Piranha

In a few days, I'll post my lists for Comedy, Comedy-Drama, and Drama. Since quite all movies can be listed in those genres, I'll need to be specific (no Romances in comedy, for example). But the choices are difficult and I've not yet finalized my lists.
