This month’s top 5 is inspired by my fellow movie blogger, the successful Scott at Front Room Cinema. He had these mumbling posts which always have great idea to mumble. At first, I wanted to do top 3 TV Series but I have been discovering interesting British TV series lately, so I delay that top 5 because it might change after I saw those hilarious series. Scott’s mumble about To Rewatch or Not To Rewatch intrigued me to write this top 5.
I am a re-do person, meaning that I don’t mind re-watching movies or re-reading books up to the point that might turn people to boredom (I will do rereading post next month)…but not me. The reason is not because I want to explore the movie to get into more details…the reason is simply because I love the movies too damn much and I hardly find it boring even after viewing it for so many times.
This will be a list of 4 movies and 1 miniseries that almost feel like a series of movies.
Let’s begin 🙂
What can I say about Matrix?? Hmmm…let’s see, I have nothing to say but the fact that this is the best Sci-fi movie Hollywood ever created. I know many people will disagree with me but that is how I feel about Matrix. I was awed of how unpredictable it was when I first saw it…and now, I am still awed with the visual effect and of course the story.
As I have said it in my review, I practically remember all the conversation in this movie because I watch it too many times.
This is not a cinema movie, but we can still treat it as movie because each episode is 90 minutes (just like movies in cinema). When my friend lent me the downloaded file of Series 1, I was blown away of how great Benedict was as Sherlock. He was the most perfect Sherlock for me, exactly how I imagine him to be if he ever jumps out of the book.
Sherlock BBC is hilarious, serious and fun all the way…I watched the first series in 2011 and had probably rewatched it more than 5 times over the year, and to no one surprise, I have watched the second series (which was released in January 2012) 3 times and I will watch more in the few months to come.
Indonesia finally decides to release the original DVD soon…and I will buy it despite the fact I have seen it so many times (I only buy original DVD when I know I will watch it over and over again).
When Scott asked me my favorite rewatched movie, to my own surprise I immediately answer Breakfast on Pluto. Out of all Cillian’s movie, I love this one the most…the movie that turned me into a Cillianiac.
There are many things about Breakfast on Pluto that captivated me more than his other movies, he is brilliant there (which I still think as his best act so far), the supporting actors are believable, the soundtracks are amazing, and the story is fun and thoughtful at the same time.
I first saw it in 2010 and I think I have seen it more than 10 times since then…in fact, writing this makes me want to see it again 😉
Honorable mention: Alien (all 4 of them), Ringu, 28 Days Later, Shaun of The Dead, The Lord of the Rings, and Die hard.
