    Please, pleaseee change your video support site. Every second video doesn’t work on spike, so I end up watching commercials all the time!!!

  • April 8, 2010 at 8:00 am

    Thanks for the list, I was pleased that I have seen some of the movies myself, and now I know some other interesting movies I should see and will surely enjoy.

  • April 8, 2010 at 9:48 am

    I had not seen It’s a mad mad mad mad world before i saw this even tough
    I’ve heard you talk about it much in your other videos, but I have seen it now and it’s amazing. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • April 9, 2010 at 12:18 am

    The people who e-mailed you about the german release of charlie and the chocolate factory were wrong. I remember seeing it on TV as a kid.

    So don’t feel sad for us.

    Awesome way to finish it off James ๐Ÿ™‚

  • April 16, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    A great motivation to finally see some of those classics I have been missing out on.

  • centisteed

    April 21, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    Some of those movies are so played out that they’ve become cliche. I don’t think anyone has missed these, except maybe your first & last pick. I think of Willy Wonka like I think of McDonald’ a kid, I enjoyed it. But as an adult, fuck that. I stay the fuck away from it at all costs. There isn’t anything of substance to see it again.

    And there is always somebody using it. For instance, just last week I heard it playing while showing some scenes from Lost. And then there was another commercial that used a different Wiliy Wonka tune. It made you wonder if Gene Wilder was calling in favors because his bank account was running low.

  • April 24, 2010 at 10:57 pm

    I could easily see #1 coming. Any chance of doing a commentary like you did for Dracula? That would get me to hunt down a copy.

    if i would choose one of the terminator movies i would probably pick the second movie but that might be because i watched it recently

  • May 14, 2010 at 12:57 pm

    I’m surprised there was no James Bond films on there. But never the less great list I love the reference MST3K makes to 7 faces of Dr. Lao.

  • May 16, 2010 at 12:55 am

    Now that Ive seen a closer look at the plot of “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”, I realize that they remade that movie under a different name; “Rat Race”, Its the exact same movie, right down to the senseless cameos, and the characters as well, though I think they were slightly altered to better suit todays culture.

  • Edward

    That Mad Mad…..Mad World almost sounds like Rat Race. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Almost every film you mentioned is in my top 50! That being said, I can really tell that It’s a Mad,Mad,Mad,Mad world has a special place in your heart by the way you talk about it.

    My top 25 favorite movies

    They’re not all great films, and you might roll your eyes at some, but there’s something about them–a great performance, a poignant message, immersive escape from reality–that makes them so appealing to me. Also, I haven’t seem as much really old cinema as James, obviously, so many of my picks are pretty recent. Anyway . . .

    25. The Breakfast Club (1985)
    It’s so much fun to watch these high school stereotypes squabble, then bond, then just run amok on a giddy misbehavior binge; still love those beesting lips

    24. Sleuth (2007)
    This is a bit of a black-sheep pick, but I just love it; I would pick the original, but Jude Law’s go as detective is just too entertaining to pass up; I also like that Caine switched roles for the remake, and he really gets his teeth into just being a vitriolic bastard in this one

    23. Pitch Black (2000)
    As they say, an efficient little sci-fi thriller that shows that you don’t need a huge budget to make an enduring film

    22. Dark Star (1974)
    An early John Carpenter flick; quirky and low budget but ahead of its time; still way better than the CGI junk that gets churned out nowadays; I’m sure Red Dwarf was influence by this film

    21. The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
    If I were to pick just one from Star Wars, this has to be it (like duh!)

    20. The Princess Bride (1987)
    My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die . . .

    19. Fletch (1985)
    Chevy Chase’s best film IMHO; the film itself is uninspired, but Chase is just so entertaining and really hits all the right chords; never gets old

    18. Secret Window (2004)
    Johnny Depp and John Turturro show you dark places of the human mind; disturbingly satisfying conclusion

    17. The Terminator (1984)
    Needs no explanation on this site

    16. Back to the Future (1985)
    Needs no explanation on this site

    15. Ladyhawke (1985)
    Amazing cast and performances; simple but entertaining story; beautifully shot; pulls at the heartstrings just enough without being overly sentimental; makes the fantasy element seem natural and real, it’s not overdone

    14. Empire of the Sun (1987)
    Christian Bale is still a kid in this Spielberg film set during WWII in Japanese occupied China; John Malkovich is good as always; this is an adventure (although he doesn’t really go many places) and coming-of-age story; it makes me feel like I’m reading Kipling’s Kim

    13. The Dark Knight (2008)
    If this isn’t an awesome sequel, then neither is T2; Heath! come back!

    12. Blazing Saddles (1974)
    Mel Brooks, Gene Wilder, Cleavon Little, and Slim Pickens: how can you go wrong?; amid bucket loads of giggles and naughtiness are messages about racism, life, and friendship, but Mel Brooks doesn’t force it on you; Madeline Kahn is probably the most brilliant entertainer ever to have lived–acting ability, comedic timing and delivery, amazing voice, beauty

    11. There Will Be Blood (2007)
    Epic; Day Lewis is unbelievable; I think he’s the best actor alive

    10. Drunken Master II (1994)
    Subtitled, of course; the only martial arts flick on my list; the reason I went crazy about Jackie Chan during the 90s (like many others); it’s just a continuous string of the best full-on-fun, furious fight scenes and slapstick

    9. Spaceballs (1987)
    The ultimate Star Wars parody; too much ridiculously funny stuff to mention; Mel Brooks’ finest, IMHO

    8. American Psycho (2000)
    Christian Bale is outrageously entertaining and funny as hell in this; the criticism of greed and selfishness is a bit obvious, but it works; Bale’s performance and his slide into insanity and inner anguish are what make this film

    7. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
    Needs no explanation on this site

    6. Dead Man (1995)
    Johnny Depp again, this time in Jim Jarmusch’s dreamy, hypnotic journey of discovery; and, yes, I love the soundtrack, so there!

    5. Casino Royale (2006)
    Still a bit recent, but I love it too much to leave it off; both criticized and lauded when it came out, but I think it will stand up over time; some people hated that it was like three movies in one, but to me that just made it all the more epic, and, like it or not, it set a new standard for Bond films

    4. Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)
    Just classic; my favorite of all the Kubricks; makes you wish Peter Sellers was still around; George C. Scott and Slim Pickens are a riot, too

    3. Chopper (2000)
    Australian film staring Eric Bana about notorious hitman, scallywag and ordinary bloke Mark “Chopper” Reid; see it if you can get your hands on it; it will not disappoint, and it’s funny as hell

    Tie for first (just cannot decide)

    1. Castle of Cagliostro (1979)
    Subtitled, of course (dubbed movies are never the same); combines timeless manga/anime series Lupin III with some of director Hayao Miyazaki’s best work; so well written; the characters really have depth in this one; still the best feature length Lupin III

    1. Life of Brian (1979)
    Monty Python’s best; poignant criticism of religion and society with some of the funniest humor and dick jokes ever

    So what are your favorites?

    June 9, 2010 at 1:15 am

    Movies that should have been somewhere on this list (in my opinion) The waterboy, avatar, forrest gump, gone with the wind, Godzilla, The hurt locker (and yeah i know some of these are really new but still -.-)

  • Rasengan999

    June 9, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    Ok, here’s the deal: Avatar, the crappy piece of scrotum, is a sucky movie about blue-smurfy-cats trying to secretly re-enact the Trail of Tears. Avatar:The Last Airbender, is a freaking awesome TV show that is the ORIGINAL “Avatar” that has a freaking awesome live-action movie coming out soon. When “The Last Airbender” comes out, well, let’s just say… it’s “open season” on the blue-smurfy-cats…

  • Jackp5

    June 10, 2010 at 11:43 pm

    I don’t believe Avatar was the best movie that told a strong story because it was more of James Camerons life and how he saw it in the past 30 years; with war, global warming, and many other events that were the retelling of a modern history book.

  • June 13, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    1:Aliens (1986)

  • June 13, 2010 at 8:51 pm

    I cant do any order but i did wanna list movies i love but its to hard to put them in any kind of order, they made my list because of there own reasons. BUT i can name my number 1 the movie i can watch everyday and notice something new.

    1: Aliens James Camerons BEST film and in many ways i feel it layed the foundation for a lot of characters in the AVATAR movie everyone loves so much … that isl ok “not good not bad just ok”. This movie has been quoted many time and still has a unique appeal. Ridley Scott created this dirty, steamy, claustrophobic, imperfect view contrasting movies like 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Cameron was able to expand on this world, and created a futuristic vietnam bunch of Marines.
    “Stay Frosty”

    Movies i would have on my list also
    Alien (1979)
    The Goonies (1985)
    E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
    The Wizard of Speed and Time (1988)

    Movies i agree with james on

    Ghost Busters (1984)
    Back to the Future (1985)
    Jaws (1975)
    The good the bad and the ugly (1966)
    One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)
    Star Wars (1977)
    Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

    Remember “where we are going we dont need roads”

    10. Die Hard
    9. Jurassic Park

    7.Back to the Future
    6. Wayne’s World

    I’d say my favorite movie would be The Lion King.

    This movie came out in 1994 during Disney’s “Renaissance Period”. This was the time from the early to late 90s when Disney still cared about making good animated features, and before the company sold its soul to propaganda and teen idols. Of all the classic Disney films of my childhood, The Lion King sticks out as the best.

    This movie has almost every emotion: excitement, joy, fear, jealousy, and tear-jerking sadness, all rolled into one. The movie takes itself seriously, and really shows the effort that was put into it. There are so many times when I tear up in this movie, and not just because of the sad parts, but some parts that are just so beautifully well-done, I can’t help but cry at it. This is one of the very few movies I’ve seen that actually make me cry at the happy parts, as well as the sad parts.

    The Lion King is the perfect family film: the animation, as well as the Disney name, appeals to kids; whereas the characterization and complexity of the plot is more adult-centered, filled with plots of murder, and revenge. It’s an epic retelling of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, which is considered one of the best plays of all time.

    I loved the movie when I was a kid for its bright animation and characters, but now, 12 years later, I finally saw the darker, edgier side to the movie, which completed it for me, because now I focused on the plot and the characterization.

    The Lion King has some of the best character development in any Disney movie, in my opinion: we really get to see Simba grow up, as well as the inner demons he struggles with. Not to mention, Scar is, in my opinion, the most sinister Disney villain: not only are his motives evil, but he actually completes those goals, which is something Disney villains very rarely do.

    What really sells this movie is the music. Both Elton John and Hans Zimmer exceed expectations at using their music to let the emotions flood into the visuals. The Lion King is perfect harmony of the eye, the ear, and the mind. It doesn’t just flash pretty colors and catchy tunes at your face like most Disney movies. It pulls you into the story, and sorta forces your to take sides and draw your own conclusions at some points. It respects you as a viewer, and not simply as profit.

    The Lion King serves as a symbol of what Disney used to be: a land of magic and art. Today, it’s all about profit and propaganda, treating the audience as nothing but big fat dollar signs.

    The Lion King is one of the last great Disney movies because it touches upon the nostalgia of the old Disney, while incorporating some entirely new elements to achieve not just a film, but a modern epic.

    Here are my top 30 favorite movies of all time, and yes, most of them are animated films, because I love the animation genre:

    30. Anastasia (animated)
    29. Wayne’s World
    28. Full Metal Jacket
    27. After the Fox
    26. The Dirty Dozen
    25. The Road to El Dorado (animated)
    24. Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie
    23. Titan A.E. (animated)
    22. Ghost in the Shell (animated)
    21. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
    20. The Great Mouse Detective (animated)
    19. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
    18. Reservoir Dogs
    17. Clash of the Titans (1981 version)
    16. The Great Escape
    15. Heavy Metal (animated)
    14. Scorched
    13. Terminator 2: Judgement Day
    12. The Hunchback of Notre Dame (animated)
    11. A Time to Kill
    10. The Land Before Time (animated)
    9. The Lion King (animated)
    8. Kelly’s Heroes
    7. Fantastic Mr. Fox (animated)
    6. Platoon
    5. Robin Hood (animated)
    4. Watership Down (animated)
    3. The Dollars Trilogy (oh yeah, I went there)
    2. South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut (animated)
    1. The Secret of N.I.M.H. (animated)

    I chose The Secret of N.I.M.H. as my #1 favorite because of how serious it takes its audience. While it maybe a film about mice, it has some frightening images that younger children can get scared at. Plus the story and how the rats became intelligent through medical experiments is just brilliant. It’s definitely Don Bluth’s best movie, and that’s why it’s my #1 favorite movie.

  • July 5, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    I like all of your choices of your top 30 favorite favorite films,I like some of these films too(especially Rocky and First blood).(this is a comment for all 3 parts).

    My personal top ten (Don’t ask for more, it was hard enough to come up with those 10 :P):

    10. The Usual Suspects
    Great characters, great acting, but I mainly love how the movie tricks the audience. One hell of a twist within the last two minutes – that’s awesome.

    9. The Departed
    Not much to say about this one, it’s just done pretty well. Jack Nicholson as Costello is awesome, the other actors are good too, and the music is awesome (hell, it has Shipping up to Boston by the Dropkick Murphys as Main theme – you can’t go wrong with that).

    8. The Boondock Saints
    A cult classic – the characters are sympathetic, the premise is pretty cool and the Soundtrack kicks ass.

    7. Crank
    One of the best – and craziest – Action movies I ever saw. This movie goes straight to 100% and entertains the living fuck out of you.

    6. Lord of the Rings
    I consider the trilogy one big movie, as much as I think of the books as a three-parter. The effects are just amazing – a prime example of CGI done right. The only thing I didn’t like were some of the changes they made to the original story, but that doesn’t keep this movie from being awesome.

    5. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
    Now, what have I gotten myself into? I don’t know, why I love this movie so much, maybe because of Johnny Depps acting, maybe because of the crazy situations the protagonists get themselves into, maybe because the whole movie is just one hell of a freakout – whatever. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas kicks ass.

    4. The Dark Knight
    I’m a Batman-fan, I especially love the Joker, and in my opinion, Heath Ledgers Interpretaion comes closer to the character than any other actor before. Furthermore, the story is great, the action is great, the Joker is as hilarious as menacing and the finale is epic. My only criticism is that Scarecrow and even Two-face came a little short. But overall, the best Batman-movie.

    3. Star Wars – The classical trilogy
    Again, to me, it’s one big movie. Basically, I totally agree with everything James said in his Star Wars-Review. As for the prequel-trilogy, it wasn’t bad. The effects were pretty cool, but it suffered from being all CG. It was done very well, of course, but the original trilogy has a charme that no computer generated effects will ever match.

    2. Heat
    I’ve watched this movie about five times, and I’m still not able to find a single flaw. I love Al Pacino and Robert de Niro, and seeing them together in one movie is a fucking feast. The story is great, the acting is great, the action is great. This movie comes as close to being perfect as possible.

    1. Fight Club
    At first I thought – oh yeah, Ed Norton and Brad Pitt beating the shit out of each other, okay. But then I saw the film and – HOLY FUCKING SHIT – This is one hell of an intelligent movie. Unfortunately, I can’t talk that much about it because I don’t want to spoil anything and I wouldn’t do the movie much justice anyway, so just sit down and watch it.

    I feel about movies much the same as a lot of the people posting comments here and James as well, so I’m not going to bore anyone with recounting my own top list since it’s too difficult and most have been mentioned already. But I do want to point out one that I haven’t seen addressed here yet (If it has, I couldn’t find it scanning the comments).

    “What’s Up Doc?”. Aside from my mother I don’t really know anyone who has seen this movie, and it’s a damn shame. It’s my favorite comedy of all time, even over Blazing Saddles. It does have Barbara Streissand in it, which I can see would be off-putting to some people. But really, you should give it a chance. Every kind of funny is represented from situational, slapstick, and pure dialog driven humor. Easily in my top 5 of any genre without a doubt. Find it, watch it, and have a good laugh.

    For a long time I didn’t realize the Wizard of Oz was filmed partly in color since I only had a black and white TV at times as a kid.

    Too bad T3 tried to pretty much make the ending of T2 pointless.

    Yeah, Star Wars. It is actually closer to traditional Fantasy (albeit futuristic) than Sci-Fi. The only bad thing I’ve ever had to say about it is that the whole Death Star subplot in RotJ is pretty much just recycled from the first movie.

    Hah, as a kid, I always wanted to go to Willy Wonka’s Factory, thinking it was a real place. The Oompa Loompas and the turbo tunnel scared me though.

    How did I know Ghostbusters would be near the top? I thought of it as soon as I saw “Top 30”.

    And BttF and the original Kong, of course.

    With the trend of “re-imagining” old films, I have a sneaking suspicion we’ll be seeing a Tim Burton remake of “The Wizard of Oz” . . . probably with Johnny Depp playing Scarecrow, Lion AND Tin-Man — wait — that would actually be kind of interesting. Haha.
    Anyway, awesome countdown James–your final 10 are almost the same as mine . . . but I’d probably squeeze “American Psycho” in there somewhere too.

  • niejaki

    1 – Who framed Roger Rabbit
    2 – Children of Men

    I’m sure you’ve watched Roger and you are probably thinking “wow, how could i forget about him” right now… I don’t know if you watched Children of Men so if you didn’t do it now. The best movie of the decade.

    Gosh, Finally! I haven’t seen Sword in the Stone since I had a VCR. No one ever talks about, stations never play it, and I have yet to see it sitting anywhere outside of Best Buy on DVD. Don’t get me wrong, I like a lot of Disney movies. But finally, Some acknowlegement, or at least agreement that Sword in the Stone was one of the greats.

    I agree with most of your selections. There’s alot I haven’t seen, but will definately be looking up in my free time. Excellent list.

  • Magic Spoon

    October 7, 2010 at 5:59 am

    Finally got the chance to see It’s a Mad World yesterday, and I gotta say.. Wow. Just, wow.
    I’ve seen a lot of comedies in my life, but this one is by far the greatest. The whole movie is a big epic adventure with great characters, fucking hilarious scenes, good soundtrack and an extremely original idea.

    On a side note, I cannot believe they remade the movie and called it “Rat Race”. It’s one of the most disgracing movies I have ever seen. They took one of the greatest comedies of all time and just took a massive shit all over it. Fuck you, Hollywood.

    • ViktorFarfarAndersson

      December 6, 2011 at 6:07 pm

      I’m much into classic movies (especially horror and comedy), I have not seen Mad, Mad World (yet), but Rat Race is actually one of the few movies of the 2000’s that I’d even dare to call a modern classic. While it’s already somewhat outdated, it has its charm and great jokes. Oh well, I guess I can’t judge it properly without seeing Mad, Mad World first.

    It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad world is my favorite movie of all time too!

    My grandfather showed this to me when I was a kid and that memory of watching it with him and laughing is one of the most powerful memories of my childhood.

    I was so surprised that it was also your number one. I tell everyone about this movie. I’ve got the VHS. I was really disappointed that the DVD is cut so short. This is the entire reason I still have a VHS player. I bought a new VHS player one time because my old one ate my tape just one time. I was scared it would happen again, so I bought a new player just to protect my one VHS copy of IAMMMMW.

    I’m so happy that other people get to hear about this movie. Thank you!

I woud’ve added the Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, but there’re so many good movies out there, so it’s hard for me to choose my favorite. Great Top 30!!

  • March 3, 2011 at 1:27 am

    I enjoyed watching this list however I find it strange that out of 30 movies, only 1 that I can remember (Terminator 2) was actually made after the year 1990. Do you hate movies that release now days or what James? It is without a doubt your own personal opinion and thats okay. I know you do the AVGN thing even though you don’t actually like to play new video games anymore. I was wondering if you felt the same way about movies? Either way I can’t argue that nearly every movie you posted was a great film, but there are several made in the last 20 years that dwarf some of them.

    With such a large mixture of different content in all thirty films, I totally understand how you gained an interest in film making. Everyone of the movies you mentioned has somethiing so special in them, something you can remember for life. After seeing just about everything you have ever created on this site, I hope someday to see a major movie in theatres, directed by James Rolfe. I really think you have what it takes to make a great movie, since you know what goes into one.

Now I watch movies more often. I saw It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad world yesterday and Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory today.

    Great list. I agree with a lot of films mentioned here. Yet, every list is there own. I really feel like i have to mention a film called Ben-Hur. Seriously, I feel like it is a slap in the face to not mention this movie based on it’s influence on modern day films and the fact that it stars Charleston Heston. It is one of his best, if not the best role of his career..

    I also feel that It could easily replace Gremlins which Honestly is a stretch as a top 30. I think a lot of people would agree with me on this.

    Watch both movies,..respond, and prove me wrong. That challenge even includes you James.

    Hope to see some responses. See you all around. Peace out.

    James, Mike and co.,

    Between your efforts and those of Doug Walker, i have not only reaffirmed my love for old school games and movies, but has educated me to many titles I had next to no exposure to. Thank you all for being so entertaining, expressive, and the hysterical fuckfaces we have come to know and love. Knowing your material and conveying it intelligently (particularly in your movie reviews) makes the content that much more dynamic. Besides, who else can put buffalo diarrhea dumps directed at your ears, unholy fuckheaps of commercial prostitution (games in your AVGN episodes), Rolling Rock then Yuengling, and Super MECHA Death Christ into a blender and then somehow fit it all together in coherent comedy? Anyway, as this is my first comment on your site I figured id just get that out of the way. Now on to my real comment…

  • Nobrakes

    June 21, 2011 at 4:16 am

    Titles are important. Many people see a title or headline and that is ALL they see in an article. Apparently, this top 30 is not an example of that. Most of the comments about which movies were left out of this top 30 list weren’t too bad and arguments could be made, if the title had been “Top 30 Movies of All Time”, Most Influential Movies etc etc. Ok…. read the title again. It says “Favorite” movies. As in, James’ top 30 favorites. So…… yeah….

  • Nobrakes

    June 21, 2011 at 4:26 am

    @ Jeremo,

    Comparing the entertainment value and influence on cinema as a whole, of Gremlins and Ben-Hur, blows my fucking mind. No need to go into details, as it pretty much speaks for itself. Completely different era’s of moviemaking, styles of entertainment, influences on their respective genres…..the list could go on.

    Prove you wrong? Prove what wrong? Wait… what the fuck are you even talking about?? Is James wrong for having a personal opinion that Gremlins belongs on his top 30 favorite movies list? Did he set the two movies together to figure out which one is better? ::sigh:: And what are you challenging people in general, and James in particular, to do exactly? Watch both movies and probably enjoy/ respect their contributions to film for completely different reasons? Ok….. i challenge you to come up with a salient point about this entirely subjective list if you end up reading this and comment here again.

    Besides, challenging James is a bad idea. His power pad makes him immune to the unholy deathbolts of Satan himself! Oh shit, he’s putting on the konami laserscope!!! Time to start cheesin’ it and run for our lives. “FUCK FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

  • June 23, 2011 at 5:51 pm

    Old Kong definitely tops Peter Jacksons version. Nice list i’ll have to check out the ones i don’t know. I would have real trouble narrowing a list of favourites to 30.

    1. I’d be also interested in top 30 video/nintendo games. Maybe make it top 50. ๐Ÿ™‚
    2. Though I mostly agree with those top 30 movies I am wondering two things: A) Where is “2001” and/or “Alien”? Those movies changed the whole fricking movie-world! OK, I understand you just don’t like them that much. B) Why is there no zombie/monster movie in there (except 4 KK)? You’re obviously such a fan but there’s no such films in your list? I demand an explanation, good Sir!
    And better don’t talk back to me! I am the German Videospiel-Wรผterich (from Cologne ๐Ÿ™‚ and we don’t react too well on talking back! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I was just thinking of It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World earlier. How interesting it’s your #1. I was making a Top 30 list thanks to your inspriation and thought about putting it on there, but I haven’t seen it more than once, so I can’t count it as a favorite 30. Definitely in my top 50 list, however. And Rat Race.

    this list has got to be a fckin joke… i dont even know where to start, of course i know that this is very subjective and also depends on nostalgia but WTF: a masterpiece like Full metal jacket is on place 20, and after that come only completely stupid and lowbrow entertainment movies (for example a fckin DISNEY MOVIE).. Have you ever seen Movies like Clockwork Orange, Schindler’s List or Fight Club, movies with a meaning, with a message, movies that are precious and intelligent?

      @vocal555 I see the point your making about movies with a meaning and intelligent but that’s not always what makes a good movie. The fact of the matter is that sometimes we have that terribly stupid and senseless movie that we absolutely love for that reason, because its stupid, because its senseless, because you cab just let go and enjoy the mindless fun. It’s not the top 30 he thinks are the best, its the top 30 he likes the most. There is a difference

        and for mike: i havent seen every video on and i only know mikes game glitches, guest appearences in james vids and the mfmonday but there are only 3 trash things, so i cant rly say much about his opinion, but i guess it would be pretty similar to james’

        No one is accusing you of having “no base knowledge” of movies because you like A Clock Work Orange. There is a difference between saying a movie has no meaning at all, from a movie having less meaning than another film that you think is superior but still good in its own right. You might think Fight Club is deep, that is your conviction. However someone else might think Eraserhead is exponentially deeper than the film Fight Club. Does that make them wrong? Does that make their list objectively shittier? What was the point of your original shit-fit if not to improve upon something obviously subjective and incorrigible?

        For and intelligent person, you sure use strangely simplistic logic. Get over yourself.

But come on, If someone says that a disney movie has a greater meaning than a movie like Clockwork Orange its not anymore about subjective opinions, he’s just objectively a retard. Theres a differences about opinions and FACTS. And by the way: Why is here no one who’s able to fckin READ?? pls take a look at the conversation and then at your first sentence.. god, why am i doing this…..

        ย @vocal555ย ย @MilesWWย ย @julianwcwย No one said that disney films have a greater meaning than a clockwork orange, the reason why someone might like a disney movie is the fact that it connects with someone on a personal level rather than on psychological level. I would agree if there was a list of the top most important movies of all time, then a clockwork orange wouldย definitivelyย beat a disney movie , however since it is mostly based on opinion, it is completely sensible for someone like James to pick a disney movie instead of a kubrick movie

      What’s wrong with having a disney film on the list? They’re classics for any kid growing up…unless you weren’t hugged enough as a child or something. I grew up with disney films as well, though my personal favorite is Peter Pan/Fantasia. Just by the way you talk I could tell you’re an uncultured swine who thinks any movie that goes boom should get an oscar. If you don’t like the list, make one of your own instead of rambling about like a pissed off teenager that just figured out how to use curse words.

    • BksHulk

      January 29, 2012 at 7:03 am

      You could make your own list, but I guess it’s so much easier to log into the internet and ramble like a pissed off teenager who just figured out how to use curse words. What’s wrong with having disney films on the list? Any kid growing up, did so with disney in some form or fashion. I love disney films, though Peter Pan and Fantasia are my personal favorites. I’ve seen Clockwork Orange, and think it’s incredibly overrated. It’s all a matter of opinion, and there’s a difference between expressing your opinion like an adult, and expressing one like an idiot. Which you’ve clearly done. Solution: Make your own website, make your own video of your top 30 movie list ๐Ÿ™‚ But…like I said, must be easier for you to just sound like a tool. ๐Ÿ™‚

If anything, I feel bad for you and how you strive to be such a little prick ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s ok, get yourself a girlfriend who shares your shallow-minded views (no adult can like disney features? lmao that’s as close-minded a comment as i’ve ever heard), and maybe get laid, and maybe you can lose some of your bitterness ๐Ÿ™‚

        Also, with clockwork orange, Malcom McDowell was brilliant and the first half of the film was great. It loses itself in the last 1/3 of the film though. So it is overrated in the sense that it would be considered one of the greatest films of all-time by you. ๐Ÿ™‚

        January 29, 2012 at 6:16 pm


        Oh wow you’re simply brilliant!

        Now here’s an analysis of you:

        1. You have a superiority complex via internet which means you lack self-confidence and attempt to belittle people on a medium where you can stay anonymous, instead of on a more social and personal setting, such as real life, where the likely possibility would end you getting punched in the mouth. So it’s understandable why you would retain your vile here.

        2. You think whoever doesn’t like what you like is retarded…? Which is simply close-minded and really an insecure attitude, which speaks volumes about the kind of person you meet.

        3. You don’t post a picture of yourself…yet insult someone who is confident enough to not hide behind an blank default canvas? I think I look great, so does my girlfriend. Which, i guess is something you can’t say for yourself?

        4. You claim I’m awful at analyzing people, yet judging by your reaction I’m right on the money.

        As for myself, I don’t mind a little debate here and there since no one will ever have the same list in terms of films or whatever. As long as they express themselves in an intelligent manner. It’s all about presentation. If you want an intelligent conversation, and want people to take you seriously, than you’ve got to present yourself in that same fashion. However, if you come off like a complete asshole than shouldn’t be any surprise if you get equally insulting responses. If you presented your opinions like an adult, than I could have a genuine conversation with you. Yet, you knew exactly what you were doing. You presented yourself like an asshole, and got the response you did.

        You must be a miserable, self-important little troll out of this comment board, and for that I really do pity you. Maybe when you man up, gain some maturity, there’s intelligent conversation for someone to have you with somewhere down the road. Until then, chin up. You can’t remain an asshole forever…well unless you choose to of course. ๐Ÿ™‚

        @vocal555 i understand very well. If you expressed your opinions like an adult, than i could have a healthy debate. Yet you purposely come off short-sighted, shallow, and just like an overall asshole. So i address you in the same fashion. I’m glad you find this conversation amusing though. Because it’s been very entertaining to me, just looking over the difference the way people behave behind a computer screen, and how they are in person.

        If you didn’t come off like a pre-pubescent tantrum-suffering idiot, than I would’ve loved debating the topic at hand in a genuine conversation. I give back what I get. You approach me like an immature asshole, that’s what you get in return. You approach me like a mature adult, you’ll get that in return. It’s really a very simple concept. ๐Ÿ™‚

        @BksHulk ok now that you avoid the question the 4th time you made it perfectly clear that you dont understand… How can you expect a conversation on an adult-lvl if u dont even get what im saying? Probably because you havent developed any further and still watch disney movies, kinda fits the overall-picture dont you think? As I already said, we unfortunately hit a point now where this makes no more sense for me, see you in 40 years, maybe youve grown up then!

        I find it so incredibly amusing that you attempt to speak down to others when really, you just reflect your own insecurities and hide behind an anonymous avatar. Hiding your own ugliness in an attempt to take away any ammunition in response to your own “attacks”.

        Also, not sure I would describe Fight Club or Schindler’s list as “precious” movies as you claimed in your opening comment. Maybe that’s just me though.

        It’s ok though. Like I said, if you want to debate movies like an adult, i’m more than willing to do so. I prefer it that way. However if you wish to be persistent on your tweeny-bopper rants than I’m more than happy to analyze you on that as well. It’s a great study on internet behavior. ๐Ÿ™‚

It took you 5 days to finally think of an answer and youre making a complete idiot out of yourself by being completely wrong. And thats the 1st of the 2 big problems i have about ,,debating movies like an adult(sic!)” (what you mention in every single comment) with you. The second is that you watch fucking disney movies.

        But im not gonna ,,reveal the truth” ๐Ÿ˜€ You have to find it out yourself, especially because its so obvious.

        Also, eh i gave it a shot. Hard to single out one moment of a plethora of juvenile rants. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m content with my answers, just as you’re content being a social hobbit.

      • BksHulk

        February 4, 2012 at 10:49 am

        @vocal555 lol oh i know what precious means. Do you? I’m not sure precious would be the word i’d use to describe both films, since there is nothing really precious about them. Clockwork orange is an excellent film for the first half, than loses itself in the second half. Fight Club is great the first time you see it, but not sure i’d consider it timeless or precious. I’m not sure anyone has ever really called those films precious, which only backs my claim up. Oh that’s right, ALL OF THIS IS A MATTER OF OPINION. See what adults do is accept what the other has to say because it is his/her opinion.

        They can debate it, but most of the time, can’t or wouldn’t want to change the other’s views. Yet here you are on an internet high horse claiming people, not kids, who like disney movies are retards?

        That is why i say, when you want to debate like an adult, i’d love to debate. When you speak like a child, than I’d got to treat you like one. The Untouchables is precious, the Godfather is precious, The Day The Earth Stood Still (classic) is precious. To me at least. Clockwork Orange and Fight Club? Not so much.

      • vocal555

        February 4, 2012 at 12:59 pm

        @BksHulk I really dont know why im still doing this… You are SO annoying i have to explain every single fact they teach in junior high to you… But here because im nice today, the definition of precious:

        A precious movie is a movie with SENSE, WORTH or MEANING, because it improves your life, questions your every-day habits or moral opinions, because these movies take the mankind a step further. Thats why movies like Clockwork Orange, Fight Club, Schindlers List, Full Metal Jacket, etc… are so incredibly much better and on a complete different level than all those only entertaining movies you mentioned (which are of course still good). Now that i hopefully cleared this up: Where are your disney movies now?

      • BksHulk

        February 4, 2012 at 4:50 pm

        @vocal555 glad you’re feeling so charitable. I’m quite aware what precious means, just not sure why Clockwork Orange or Fight Club is on that list. Fight Club more so than Clockwork Orange, I could accept.

        Where are my disney movies now? They’re widely considered timeless classics. Do you ever consider the fact that grown adults watch Disney animated features because it brings them back to their childhood? Each film contains messages of morality, or some sense of meaning that, depending on the child, goes through to them.

        So, your expert analysis of only retarded adults watch disney animated feature films is beyond ridiculous. The fact that you didn’t agree with James was not the issue I had. It was your blatant disregard for anyone who valued certain films that you didn’t.

        Had you responded like a normal human being, even if people want to be retarded in their own right, doesn’t really give you the right to generalize others in a group of a few bad apples. So your remarks about how it is a fact the retards like disney feature films is ridiculous, and reflected the maturity level of the one I was to have a discussion with.

        Now obviously Clockwork Orange and Fight Club had some effect on you in a positive way, and that’s acceptable. That’s your opinion, not fact. Just as it’s my opinion that disney films, to me, should be considered classics and placed on anyone’s list.

        You obviously seem to know films, and able for some logical debate. However, it’s all about presentation. If you don’t want people to be “retards” or condescending, than don’t sound retarded or condescending .Simple as that really.

      • vocal555

        February 4, 2012 at 6:33 pm

        @BksHulk your really making this hard for me, huh? cant you just maybe go to wikipedia or something like this, do i really have to explain EVERY FUCKIN BIT?? The movie asks for the origin of sadistic violence and (even more important) how the state deals with it. Thoes approaches could change the whole judicial system in the world. by the way, Clockwork orange is based on a novel by anthony burgess who won the nobel price for literature for that book. And you say this movie is not precious, but the moral messages of a disney movie are naturally much more complex and important, i see.. just like Teletubbies and the Sesame Street, these are the true PRECIOUS cultural assets!!! Ok now seriously: I understand that its important that disney movies exist, i watched them myself when i was a toddler, but im staying on my point here: YOURE A RETARD IF YOU WATCH THEM AS AN ADULT. What could you possibly enjoy about them, as an intelligent person?oh and, do I have to explain fight club too? pls not…

        and at last: i am german, if your maybe german too this would make things easier, just tell me which nationality you have then i could translate some words for you, your obviously too stupid to do that yourself, you have to admit that this is really dumb

        @vocal555 lol thank you for reassuring your inability to have a mature conversation. You keep confirming that your maturity level and insecurities make it impossible for you to have a mature conversation. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Just because the author of a book wins an award, doesn’t necessarily mean the movie deserves the same accolades. In most cases the book is better than the film. I don’t need you to explain Fight Club, since I said, of the two films I could understand the merit of that one.

        Also, you can believe whatever you want to believe about adults who watch disney animated feature films. Doesn’t necessarily make it fact. It’s just what your pig-headed mind wants to think. Which, thankfully for this country, allows you to do so…for better or worse. ๐Ÿ™‚

        The only retard I see is the one I’m having this conversation with. Just by how you present yourself on THIS forum, I can tell you have a rough time making friends/finding social acceptance away from the computer. Hey, we’re not all perfect.

        You believe whatever you want to believe, if it makes you sleep better at night. Just know how you view others, doesn’t make it fact. It simply means you’re incapable of accepting what goes on outside your own little shallow mind. Have a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Why is it immature to insult people that are obviously retarded but think that they are the most intelligent person on earth? You cant differentiate between immaturety and cynicism which only proofs my point (again). But i bet you will keep ignoring this and say the 100st time that I’m immature and have no friends ๐Ÿ˜€ You cant do anything about: haters keep hatin, ravers keep ravin and reatards keep retardin

      • BksHulk

        February 19, 2012 at 2:30 am

        @vocal555 it’s proves not proofs which you used twice. ๐Ÿ™‚ Did…you just ask why it’s immature to insult people? The fact that you even have to ask alone says all that needs to be said.

        You’re right, there’s nothing anyone can do about immaturity and people with internet courage, that vent their own insecurities via internet because they just don’t like themselves away from the mighty keyboard.

        So, in that case you are a lost cause and I’m very sorry for that. However, maybe once you work out your issues and realize people are going to like things you don’t, and that doesn’t make them retarded (especially if such people enjoy animated films. Whether it be disney or otherwise).

        Short-sighted, superiority complexes via internet and in life in general just isn’t a healthy thing to have. Watch some comedies, or some disney animated films. Bring some joy to your life so you don’t have to resort to insulting people through a computer to make yourself feel better. Much healthier option, I assure you. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes thats pretty shocking man, you wouldnt survive in this world, better stick to your tv, but really stop trying to give me tips for my life thats pointless as you see:D But i warn you if you should really be THAT fuckin stupid and write the same exact thing again i will be kinda bored so pls write me something interesting or just give up and dont write anything at all

        @vocal555 well the important thing is you at least acknowledge you’re a pathetic asshole, and at least seem to be proud of that fact. Knowing is half the battle I suppose.

        I go by what you give me. If you want a more “intelligent” response, than present yourself with some intelligence and we’ll take it from there. If you want to stick to your gimmick as an asshole, than i’ll keep calling you out on it. Makes no real difference to me. I’m not trying to be funny, i just call it like i see it.

        February 21, 2012 at 1:04 pm

        @vocal555 i find it amusing that someone who claims people, apparently like myself, are “fucking stupid”…is too fucking stupid to see where you acknowledged yourself as a pathetic asshole. Mull it over, give it another look. Listen to yourself speak a few times and I’m sure it’ll come back to you. There’s really nothing else I can say that can make your dense mind see things any clearer than they are. Only way you can learn is by listening to yourself, and realize where you went wrong, did yourself in, and what you should look into changing. I’m sure it’ll come back to you though.

        Until then, watch some pixar movies and steer clear from that realm of assholes, torturers, and murderers you feel exist in this world. There’s a difference between acknowledging they exist, and falling into line with such a crowd. If you’re content being thought of in that light, than lol I can’t help you there.

        I know full well what the world is like, do I choose to accept it and fall into that category? Nope. No reason to. Why conform to assholes when it’s much more satisfying being a content individual.

        I could highlight several times where you seem content on being a “pathetic asshole”, which is a harsh tag i gave, i’m willing to admit. But I call it like I see it. However, attempting to talk sense to a shallow mind is like swimming against a current. Wasted energy. I’d much rather you find out for yourself.

Now what can you expect from that kind of human being, if he tries to analyze the psychology of one, based on an internet chat, or if he tries to criticize masterpieces like clockwork orange? To say it with james rolfe’s words: Not only a piece of shit, its a whole shit. Am I an asshole to make you realize this? Not really i just try to help making a life outside of your living room possible.

        February 21, 2012 at 11:20 pm

        @vocal555 lol for someone who claims bad grammer and stupidity in others, you don’t seem very bright at all. It’s actually pretty easy analyzing a personality like yours.

        You’re bitter and obviously since you probably aren’t taken seriously away from a keyboard, you want to build yourself up in an internet chat, and shoot down anyone who doesn’t agree with you.

        Not only that, but you see nothing wrong with insulting people that have a difference of opinion with you instead of engaging in an actual debate. O_o

        Plus, i don’t think i need to take grammar lessons from someone who doesn’t know the difference between “proofs” and “proves” ๐Ÿ™‚

        Or maybe it’s just all an act and your internet gimmick is simply an asshole, for your own amusement. Which i doubt.

        There’s nothing wrong with viewing Disney Films as an adult. It’s a reflection of great moments of one’s childhood, where their imagination was limitless. Something you seriously lack it seems.

        If you want people to take you seriously in this world, you have to learn to address them like an adult. Know what I mean? You’re a pathetic asshole because you’re content on being an asshole. Simple as that. We all have our roles in life. If you’re happy with that one, by all means live as you will. I would like to think people strive to be more than that though. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t think it’s the fact that it holds up as this oscar-calibur film like so many other classics. What has inspired most film makers when they talk about the classic king kong is how far ahead of its time it was. I remember watching it on saturday afternoons on FOX growing up, that and godzilla films and it just triggered my imagination and inspired me at a very young age to persue a career in that industry.

    As an overall movie does it hold up? Of course not. There’s a ton better movies. However, I’d put it on my list just because what it accomplished at such an early point in film, when sound was still a novelty in feature films. It’s historic, and for that reason I’d definitely have it on my list.

    I personally prefer the original Godzilla though.

      @BksHulk – I disagree with your list for several reasons.. For starters you have Training Day as the 4th best movie of all time. I liked Training Day but seriously I can list 100 movies that are better than that movie that aren’t even on your list….I’ll list a few: Bondock Saints, 300, Die Hard, My Cousin Vinny, Old School, Thank You for Smoking, and RoboCop.

        @JimDavis never said it was the 4th best movie of “all time”, just my 4th personal favorite film. Boondock Saints is a great movie, 300 is more of an animated comic book than an actual film…which don’t get me wrong, love it. I will give you Die Hard though. Wasn’t a fan of Thank You for Smoking though. Again though, it’s my own personal list. Didn’t expect a lot of people to agree, but is what it is. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • JimDavis

    February 3, 2012 at 3:53 am

    I myself am impressed that James could limit himself to just 30! I don’t think I could do it simply because I would consistently be remembering awesome movies and reshuffling their order. I don’t know if I could pick a #1.

      ย @JimDavisย I agree it is very hard to find your favourite movie, the best method i can think of is to not base your preference on how well the movie was shot, or how good the dialogue was, it should be about which film made you feel the best when watching it.
      Hope this helps

      Yeah, Brazil. I wonder why they have never really talked about that movie on here. I also know that Mike is a fan of District 9, and thought that it was one of the only films of 2009 that he would consider real art. I wonder if he will doe a review of it sometime…

    Great work in the videos. Good to see there’s other people out there with similar taste in films.

    I have to agree with your #1 choice, nothing in my entire life has made me laugh harder than watching Mad World.

  • bman2016

    July 11, 2012 at 9:30 am

    @vocal 555 seriously kid, stop trying to one up someone who obviously knows a lot more than you do. You think watching disney movies as an adult makes @BksHulks less mature than you? You have no idea what your talking about, so just shut up.

  • japansgreatest

    July 31, 2012 at 2:11 am

    @vocal555, sorry buddy. You got schooled that whole time. I gotta agree with @BksHulk. I read your whole comment battle, and just like BksHulk, i was NOT surprised to find out you’re only 16. You’re arguments were childish and NEVER, not once, was a reasonable, respectable counter argument presented. I could tell by reading your comments that you were young. So many times you focused on one line that Hulk said and responded to that ONE LINE. In the words of Foghorn Leghorn, “I say I say, you’re built too low boy, the fast ones, they go right over you.” Many times you COMPLETELY missed the point of BksHulk’s comments. You constantly attacked his grammar, when you’rs was just atrocious. Do I need to point out that you are yet ANOTHER teenager who can’t understand “your” and “you’re”, “prove” and “proves” You’re a troll, and people like you make the internet a steaming pile of shit.

    Disney movies? Yeah, they’re timeless. They HAVE to be. As a child, you watch Disney movies with your parents, and they have to be good movies, or the parents would NEVER want to sit through them. Then, as an adult with children of your own, you watch Disney movies with them!!!

    I’m 29, and my mother told me before that she was glad she had children when she did. One of her main reasons? All the movies I wanted to see as a child, were enjoyable for her as an adult too. She was impressed with Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles, she actually liked it, and would watch it with me on tape. She loved Pee – Wee’s Big Adventure. If you want, you can show your age again and attack my mother for liking those movies.

    The last thing I’ll say is, the whole argument started over MOVIES. Movies people. When it comes to movies, ONE thing applies to every movie ever made. PERSONAL OPINION. Is there a book out there that sets the guide lines for how a movie should be judged? People like a movie, or don’t like it, and that is nothing more than their opinion. When it comes time to figure out witch movie wins an award, is there like a multiple choice test the movie takes and if it does good enough, it wins an award? No, it’s the personal opinion of the people in charge of deciding what movie wins what award.

    I like the list, because its Jame’s PERSONAL top 30 favorite movies. It’s not Jame’s list of 30 movies EVERYONE should love and if you don’t, you’re an idiot.

      I was wondering that too. Maybe, if he had allowed himself to chose 31 films he’d had put it as number 31… I don’t like the sound of that. I think it should be much higher up ๐Ÿ™‚

      I second that! James should make him a villain in an AVGN Movie sequel. He should make it like the last boss fight in Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures, where you fight Fuchs ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s always interesting to see someone else’s view on things. I’m just currious to what you think of more modern masterpieces and great movies, as your list kinda leans towards older movies.
    Nothing wrong with that, I understand perfectly that everyone has their own list. Some of your entries I would even put up on the list as well.
    Also I want to see more lists from you. I love your lists, you elaborate so well around them. Your Twilight Zone list got me into that for example.
    It would be very interesting if you put up lists of certain genres, though I understand you lean more towards horror and classics.
    I’m just gonna name drop some to give you a better picture of what I might have in mind. Shawshank Redepmtion, Road to Perdition, Snatch, Hot Fuzz, I love you Phillip Morris, Inglorious Basterds, the Bucketlist. Some great newer movies: Intouchables, King’s Speech, Hugo Cabret.

    This is not me trying to force you to like something, I just want more lists =), and also I’m currious about parts of the movie world you haven’t mentioned.

I think I understand why you love it so much. It has it all, a true ballet of film-making. And most importantly, it really hits home, communicating about man’s greed. Connection between filmmaker and audience. Touching. Thanks James.
