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
Ghostbusters
Pulp Fiction
The Dark Knight
La Finestra di Fronte

Tanner’s Top 25 Favorite Movies of All Time (25-13)

Considering that two weeks from now is going to be my two year anniversary, I feel it is time to answer a question that I get asked a lot, what are my favorite movies? This site may tackle video games, anime, various references in pop culture, and so forth… But above all else this site is about movie reviews. The entire reason I started this site to begin with was to become a respected movie critic and I feel I am well on my way to accomplishing that goal. After two years of reviewing and writing I have decided that it is time to release my Top 25 All Time Favorite Movies!

Now due to the sheer amount of typing I am going to be doing, I have decided to split this list into two different articles. One today and the second later in the week. This is the list that includes my honorable mentions as well as numbers 25 through 13. I want everyone to keep in mind that this list is to commemorate my 25 favorite movies of all time. This has nothing to do with the greatness of these movies or their place in history. This is just merely a list of the 25 movie that I enjoy watching the most. If you disagree… Well I’m sorry, but this is a list of my favorites so screw you. With that being said, let’s start with some honorable mentions and then on to 25.

Tanner Reviews Phantom of the Paradise

395px-Phantom_of_the_Paradise_movie_posterI definitely did some digging into the vaults in order to find this cult classic buried deep within the rest of the seventies. The first ‘modern’ retelling of the classic story of the brooding and scared Phantom who falls in love with the lovely Christine and can only express it through the art of song. The Phantom of the Opera is a timeless classic and one of the staples of theater pieces and on that note drama in general. Since its creation in 1909 it surprises me that it took damn near 70 years for someone to come along and put a ‘modern’ spin on the story (and by modern I mean 1970’s modern). But in 1974 through the shared minds of director Brian De Palma and music legend Paul Williams the Phantom of the Paradise was born. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Phantom of the Paradise”
