My Movie background

  • Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (Wolper Productions)

    Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (Wolper Productions)
    A movie that just sticks out in my mind for some reason. The first live action film I remember vividly.
  • Spirited Away (Studio Ghibli)

    Spirited Away (Studio Ghibli)
    The first non-Disney animated film I can remember clearly. The artwork is great as in all Miyazake movies, and the story is gripping and gets you attached to the characters.
  • Seven Samurai

    Seven Samurai
    This was the first Samurai movie I had ever seen, which spurned me onto the whole genre. The fuedal period of Japan has always interested me for some reason, and these movies give me a small look into it.
  • The Blues Brothers (Universal)

    The Blues Brothers (Universal)
    My favorite comedy movie of all-time. There are so many unforgettable scenes from this movie, like the cop chase through the mall and the running down of Illinois nazis. Everyone should see it at least once in their lifetime.
  • Kung Fu Hustle (Beijing Film Studio)

    Kung Fu Hustle (Beijing Film Studio)
    A movie whose wacky portrayal of a blend between Kung Fu and Gangster movies is unfoergettable. It might not be my favorite movie, but its style has definitely left an impression on me.
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey (MGM)

    2001: A Space Odyssey (MGM)
    A truly amazing film. the cinematography and music create an eery atmosphere that fit perfectly with the plotline of increasing tension and mystery.
  • The Dark Knight (Warner Bros.)

    One of my favorite movies, because of its entertaining plotline, visceral action, and excellent pacing.
