Listen to this Film List as told by Heath Solo :

THE FILM LIST

This week on the Blu-ray release watch, many discs I would add to my collection.  I have never seen the series Rome, I will now.  The best film of the summer, Star Trek  is out.  That will be a great re-watch.  A few of Kevin Smith films are finally being released.  My favorite is Chasing Amy, which ranks at #87 on my all-time favorite 100 films.  Finally Fight Club  comes out on Blu-ray.  Fight Club  is in my all-time top 10. 

First rule, buy it on blu-ray...Second rule, buy it on blu-ray.....

 

Also LOST fans will be excited.  Henry Ian Cusik, who plays Desmond Hume, stars as Charles Darwin in Darwin’s Darkest Hour.

"I'm playing Charles Darwin, brotha!"

Expect some great releases as we head toward the holiday shopping season.

On The Film List : episode 5, Glen (Everyone’s favorite StarWars fan) joined me on to discuss his favorite Top 10 films of all-time.  It was a fantastic podcast and Glen’s formula for picking a top 10 was very interesting.  First, he had to have seen a particular film at least 10 times.  Second, Glen wanted to make sure his list had many different genres.  His picks were selected with that in mind.  For example, at number 7, he wanted a western.  Instead of putting the 3 westerns he liked at number 7, 8, and 9, he selected one, leaving the rest out of the top 10.  “If I didn’t do it that way, I would have had 6 Star Wars films in the top 10.  I wanted variety.”  So Glen selected one film while giving proper honorable mentions to those films that are high on his list, but just not there for his top 10.

Damn, I can only pick 10!

Damn, I can only pick 10!

Glen is a close friend of mind.  I’ve gotten to know him over the past year.    He has a good heart and his an A+ human being.  This is just a film list, but Glen is just one off those friends where he puts you first and himself second.  Yes, he does talk my ear off on Star Wars expanded universe references, but I’ll listen for 5 minutes on who Chewbacca’s cousin is any day of the week.  Especially if it means spending some quality time with my friend.  Thanks for being on the podcast, you’re a good man Charlie Brown.  Even if you are from Cleveland, lol.

 

10.  The Muppett Movie  (Honorable mention to Babe and Glen says, “One of the best family films out there”)

A Glen Ewing connect-tion....

MP3 File   of Glen’s Top 10 list from the Film List episode 5.

The other half of the Jacob’s Cabin Podcast (ABC’s LOST), Denise from Indiana aka Sharp Cheddar (Twitter) joined me on The Film List, June 1st, 2009.  This podcast was a breath of fresh air.  Her list really captured what a favorite list should be.  Not the best films, but your favorites.  And why these favorites are that and what makes them so special.  She even took one for the team.  She sort of pulled an Anna but she made some hard choices as she narrowed down to a Top 10, lol. We had a lot of fun, played some tunes and she really opened up as we talked about her LIST!

THE FILM LIST : EPISODE 7 : DENISE’S TOP 10 Favorite Films :

Okay, drumroll please!

10 – The Harry Potter series (Every Harry Potter film (and Potter to come) all tied at number 10.  Kind of a loop hole but we let it slide :

Philosopher’s Stone (2001) Chamber of Secrets (2002) Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) Goblet of Fire (2005) Order of the Phoenix (2007) Half-Blood Prince (2009) Deathly Hallows (2011)
Sort of Pulling an Anna, HP films all tied at #10.

9 – The Punisher (2004, not the one with Dolph Lundgren!)
8 – The Whole Nine Yards
7 – Pirates of the Caribbean (only the first movie)

6 – Clerks 2

Great choice for #6.

Great choice for #6.

5 – Legally Blonde
4 – Aladdin (Disney’s Little Mermaid/The Lion King just missed the cut, but we give them a strong mention)

3 – Moulin Rouge (Grease/Rent get strong honorable mentions; Denise loves the movie version of RENT!, “even though it’s so much better on stage!” as quoted on The Film List)
2 – Tombstone
1 – A Hard Day’s Night (Denise is a major Beatle’s fan.  i was very impressed with her choice here.)
Denise's #1 Film of all time!

Denise's #1 Film of all time!

Again, I give her credit.  She has such a great mix of films.  But more importantly, she had reasons for her picks.  This makes Denise’s list a true fan favorite.
