Not that I'm a big fan of reading someone's list... but couldn't help noticing number 65 - The Hobbit.

I didn't know there was a movie made?

March 8th, 2006, 09:37 PM
I'm assuming it's the Rankin/Bass thing?

Yeah, it's gotta be the Hobbit cartoon.

Anyway, I own 30 of your picks on DVD! I think your list has just reminded me of many movies I want to buy... damn you! :D

I have one question - why 82? Could you not have rounded it up or down to a more traditional number i.e 50 or 100? For exmaple you could have listed all the Star Trek films individually and same for the X-Men films.

Fist of the North Star (anime)

Does this suggest you don't think the amazing live action version wasn't up to scratch? ;)

I've never seen the Hobbit cartoon, I remember seeing the Fellowship cartoon and thinking that the way they did the Ring Wraiths was pretty cool. Might pick it up now it's been released.
I loved Flight of the Dragons as a kid as well, one of my favourite movies. My Dad got a copy of Fire and Ice, he reckoned I'd seen it before but I doubt he would have shown it to me as a kid! You gotta love old animated fantasy films.

Well the live-action version stunk! if you want THE real version of a live-action Fist of the North Star, watch "The Story of Ricky" ( a.k.a. Riki-Oh).

I'm inspired -I gotta make up my 165 and 9/10s best SFF movies list real soon! :D

March 10th, 2006, 02:23 PM
You should do it! and yes that's the animated hobbit! any movies on my lists anyones faves?

Bladerunner's my favourite film, bar none - although Empire Strikes... is a very close second.

Just out of interest Darth Boy - how old are you?

loves Flight of the Dragons

This looks more like a list of "All the films I ever seen that weren't total crap"

Check out "Screamers" and "Dreamscape" and you can post us your "Top 84 films" to see where they rank. :D
