My early work into worthy cinema led me to compile a list of the 'Best movies of all time' some years ago in 2006-2007 with the help of my family and friends. It was weeks and weeks of emails and conversations, speckled with people's insane rants about the movies that they were willing to sell their next born to see on the list, and crazy late night calls from late entry people that were just leaving the cinema and needed to make sure that I put the movie that they had just seen on the list. I still haven't seen everything on this list, and I never will, some of it is quite frankly utter shit, but, when you make a compilation you have to let everyone have a voice. Is it relevant to awesome cinema? Probably not, but it is an interesting little slice of research and well worth a peruse.
Below is a copy of the note that I attached with the final compilation of movies, it pretty much explains the list and my views on the list. This is what I consider to be the earliest research I had in 'must see' cinema and probably the foundation of all of my future obsessions.
A NOTE TO MY KIND CONTRIBUTORS: Here it is everyone....in all of it's glory and I must say, it's pretty amazing.
There will be films here that you instantly identify with and others that will leave you wondering “How the hell did that get a vote?” I assure you that I only asked people that I believe to have intelligence and a thirst for decent cinema to submit, but we all have bad days! I admit, not everything on the lists are to my taste, but I have nowhere near seen all of the films listed and therefore, I cannot comment on a lot of them.
Thanks to everyone that submitted their most treasured films for me to add, it was interesting to see which movies had had the most impact on your lives.
The collection is pretty extensive, and I have tried to add everyone’s choices to the lists. However; if someone’s film got two votes on the Back Away Slowly listings, then it got axed. Sorry, but I figured if two out of twenty plus people that were polled hated it, then it didn’t deserve to make the list. So, if you cannot find something you nominated listed here, then I am afraid to say that means too many other people didn’t like it.
In all fairness to other people’s favourites, I did not add the axed movies to the Back Away Slowly (BAS) list, seeing your fave movie on that list is a bit of a slap in the face. We obviously all love our cinema or we wouldn’t have submitted, and I do not want to offend anyone for their choices.
Also, the other problem I had was genres. Some films quiet obviously blur the lines here, making it impossible to really know where they should belong. Horror/ comedy, romance/ comedy, gritty/ war, action/ drama, art house/foreign, it all gets pretty indistinguishable. I have tried to place films where I feel they belong, but this argument could go on for hours, so just live with it, or shuffle them around yourself if it really bothers you.
I have added an asterix next to the movies that got five or more votes in total, assuming that they are definite must sees, but you can judge that for yourself. Obviously, an asterix in Back Away Slowly category means it really sucks! Also, most of the foreign section has country references in brackets, which should help you locate them.
If you don’t find anything new to see on the list, you really aren’t looking hard enough. I doubt anyone has seen all of the films on here (990 odd in total, excluding BAS), so there should be plenty of stuff for your viewing pleasure. I also found that the list made me want to go back and re-watch some things I’d forgotten all about, and I am sure you will feel the same way.
Enjoy and happy viewing.
