I did think of that one, but i haven't seen it, so I've no idea if it's a "must see" or not. (I suspect not.  ???)

I got  this by receiving the wrong Hammer 2 on 1 dvd from an Amazon order! :D

I wouldn't say a "must see" ,its very similar to Hammers first two Quatermass films.

Hey i've now done Q as well!! :D

Great movie.
I saw this again after several years recently and was disappointed to discover that Michael Caines famous line "Stop throwing those bloody spears at me" in his trademark cockney accent ( like "Play It Again Sam" in Casablanca ) wasn't there and is a fabrication. :(

The over-sized stage coach when the snotty passengers were belittling Rod Steiger. And Coburn aimlessly wandering the desert exploding mountains. Found that rather surreal.

To make this game more interesting, each new player should make certain that his/her list does not contain any of the films already listed. Here's my play:

Au Hasard, Balthazar
Badlands
Coup de Torchon
David Holzman’s Diary
L’Eclisse
Far From the Madding Crowd
Il Gattopardo
Hud
In the Mood for Love
Journal d’un cure de campagne
Kind Hearts and Coronets
The Long Goodbye
Madame de……
Nights of Cabiria
Out of the Past
Providence
Quai des Orfevres
Rear Window
Sansho Dayu
Two Lane Blacktop
Umberto D
Vivre sa vie
Wise Blood
X (the final film of the Dekalog)
Yama no oto (Sound of the Mountain)
Zentropa


Jill--to better distinguish between Herzog's Nosferatu and Murnau's, you can give the complete title of the former: Nosferatu, Phantom der Nacht.

Title: Re: Name a must-see movie for each letter of the alphabet.
Post by: Sonny on July 25, 2007, 08:11:56 AM
However, even harder than listing great movies...

List movies YOU OWN for each letter of the alphabet.  With letters such as X or Q, if you don't own one, list one whose title starts with the letter that comes before that.

Example...

P - choose two movies for P
Q - if don't have a movie for Q
R
S

As you may know (since i told you it something like 458 times), I'm at work, and it's quite boring. So I'm loghgind and unlogging myself the whole day, and while calling these ******* firms that never answer, I'm thinking to it :)
What's is strange is that for "U", "M", "O" and some other letters, I have at least 2 or 3 movies and it's hard to pick up just one... and for other letters, impossible to think to a MUST SEE movie.

Yeah i know what you mean.  I had a hard time choosing between Breathless, Band a Parte, Belle de Jour, and others.  With P i had trouble choosing between The Piano, Platoon, Pulp Fiction.. etc.
And the Hardest was maybe S, Saving Private Ryan, Singin' in the Rain, Sanjuro, The Seventh Samurai.. 

And... with Q, Quills was the only title i could think of... not that it's bad, it's just not a "must-see" compared to the others.

!!!
What's wrong with casino? it is flawed (the structure of the movie has something wrong, DeNiro's character isn't very developped, and sharon stone is may be too stupid) but it is definitively a must see movie, if not a masterpiece (it's in my top 20).
The camerawork and the editing are among the most brilliant ones that will ever be done, the acting is absolutly great, the way the story is told is incredlibly inovative... everytime i watch the movie, I'm like  :o :o :o :o :o :o how the hell does Martin Scorsese do THAT???  :o :o :o

For a few, there are no answers. Some of the films I listed, I don't even give five stars. This is because they're important, none the less. The Departed, for example, gets 4/5 from me, but because it got such high critical acclaim, a film buff should see it.
