Tanner’s Revised Top 25 Favorite Movie of All Time

So, considering the fact that I have finally decided to write the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time… Which is coming soon… I decided to revisit one of my favorite posts of all time: My Favorite Movies of All Time. Here is the thing, opinions change, ideas change, and ultimately my tastes have changed. Some movies have become more prevelent in my mind. Some… Some have fallen off the board altogether. When I originally created my Top 25 list… I completely snubbed a few of my favorite movies due to good ole fashion forgetfulness. As such, movies like Die Hard and Reservoir Dogs have made and rectified the list. So with that said, please enjoy my Top 25 FAVORITE MOVIES OF ALL TIME!

Honorable Mentions
Shaun of the Dead
Kill Bill
The Lion King
Strangers on a Train
Pulp Fiction
The Dark Knight
La Finestra di Fronte
Howl’s Moving Castle

Top 5 Bill Paxton Movies and One Show

Well… This is a shitty way to start the week. Bill Paxton may not be the most memorable actor in my life. But he certainly left quite an impression on my life. He has been in some of my favorite movies of all time and one of his most iconic rolls is in my favorite movie of all time, Aliens. With the passing of Bill Paxton, I wanted to shelf the original plan for this Sunday and make a post dedicated in his honor. So, without further ado, here is the Top 5 Bill Paxton Movies… And One Show. Continue reading “Top 5 Bill Paxton Movies and One Show”

Tanner Reviews Vertical Limit

220px-Vertical_LimitFor anyone who follows my site will know that a while back I reviewed a personal favorite movie of mine called Into Thin Air: Death on Everest which was a television dramatization of the events that occured in the Everest Disaster of 1996 that ended in the tragic death of five climbers. While I do admit that the movie is flawed and on a technical stand point, nothing to write home to mom about. I do love watching the movie and watch it from time to time on Netflix. This is key because this spurned me to watch the movie that we are talking about today in the year 2000 called Vertical Limit. A movie about a group of climbers that become stranded on K2 after an avalanche. In my young mind, knowing that I loved Into Thin Air spurned me to see this mountain climbing adventure and as a kid I proudly proclaimed ‘eh’. It was okay but even in my warped love everything mind, I still wasn’t impressed by it and after watching it again as an adult, I realize just how bad this stinker of a movie actually is. Directed by James Bond director Martin Campbell, this film was meant to be a non stop action mountain climbing adventure. But instead it flopped onto the screen and then immediately flopped out of the minds of the people willing to watch it. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Vertical Limit”

Tanner Reviews Twister

TwistermovieposterI think it is high time that I discuss ‘guilty pleasures’. Ah yes, we all have them. We all have that film or video game or TV show or whatever the hell it is that we KNOW damn well that it is terrible… And yet we can’t help but enjoy the living hell out of it. The acting is wrong, the setting is wrong, the controls are wrong, just about everything about the thing is wrong, and yet it is still something that whenever you are bored one day you can watch over and over again and never get sick of it. If you enjoy any kind of visual media and if you are reading this I am sure that you do then you have a guilty pleasure and let me assure you that there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Even the pickiest of people have them and if a person says that they do not… Odds are very likely that they are either ashamed of their guilty pleasure or are so pretentious that they have their head stuck up their ass.
