Starting in childhood ... (cinema experience only, therefore a few films I adore are missing) ~
A Hard Day's Night (oh how this changed my life, I am not kidding)
Oliver! (sang and danced in street)
Diamonds Are Forever
Jesus Christ Superstar (and my church put on the play later ...)
The Spy Who Loved Me
Apocalypse Now (not a happy high but it went thru to my core)
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Tomorrow Never Dies (yes, 2 Bonds in a row for me)
Four Weddings and a Funeral
The Matrix (so fresh back then, and loved the ending music - I wanted to get right back into that world)
Lord of the Rings (especially Return of the King)
Definitely one of the Jet Li films (can't remember which one, but it was NOT 'The Mummy 3'!). I walked out of the cinema thinking, "I know Kung Fu" :))
Kick-Ass: different from anything I'd seen before
Tron Legacy: I was blown away by this film, absolutely loved it
TMNT: can't remember leaving the cinema, but I would've walked out yelling "COWABUNGA, DUDES!!!"
Forrest Gump: his journey through life really moved me
Twilight: highly entertaining, and you almost believed me, didn't you? ;)
I'm sure there are many more from when I was younger.
QBranch, I didn't believe you for a second. B-)
A View To A Kill - My first Bond in the theater. Pretty awesome for a kid.
Batman (1989) - One of the few movies in my lifetime that lived up to the hype.
Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country - Was not expecting it to be as good as it was.
GoldenEye - Bond was back in a big way.
Star Wars/The Empire Strikes Back (1997) - Yes, they were altered but to finally see them on the big screen was magnificent.
The Matrix - Didn't know much about it going in and was blown away.
Casino Royale - Had almost given up on Bond after DAD and then this happened.
I'm sure there's more but these were the first ones that jumped into my mind.
Wow, way to spoil the adventure for yourself. Why wait and see the last film in a massive, continuity-focused franchise?
Since GE i have seen all Bond movies in the cinema and GE, TMND, Twine and DAD be my best experience. I whas exited about GE, but even more with TMND thanks to promotion. In 2000 i also have seen 2 movies in the cinema: Twine and Mission Impossible 2. DAD get bad taste, but after the view in the cinema i stil feel the hype.
After 5-6 years i get a litle bit of my pleasure back with QOS who i thaught i lost and be very creatief movie, stil it never be the same again before 2004/Brosnan left. Not realy exited enough any more to like Bond movies. Not tricked enough for buying the Daniel Craig Bond movies. More i whas again disapointed after Skyfall. That we must wait till 2015 or 2016 for Bond 24 not make it easier. A couple of things on promotion of Skyfall i must say inprove and whyle i have/should have doubts about elements in QOS for a part i like the direction QOS go and left overs in Skyfall but i discover i problems with way tradional Bond things be used.
When you don't think you are going to like it, you don't care. It happened to me a few times, but not to that point.
For me, in chronological order:
-E.T., which is ironic since I only ever saw it once and never felt the need to watch it again.
-Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. I adored it then.
-TMNT. Another ironic one, as I never cared for them afterwards.
-Goldeneye. I was a HUGE Brosnan fan then and had been wanting him to play bond since 1989.
-The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. This one I had been waiting for it a long time, hoping they'd make a movie since I read the books and grew dissatisfied with Bakshi's version. I must have seen it five times in cinema alone.
-Casino Royale. Maybe the only movie, with LOTR, that still gives me the same goosebumps as when I first watched it.
I would certainly never do that, and if I did I wouldn't choose to see the last film in the franchise before all the others. Of course I have been a Potter fan all my life, so this is like sacrilege to me. ;) I only feel sorry for those that have ruined the experience for themselves of journeying with the characters from the very beginning to the very end.
I like Harry Potter, but not to the point of being a fan. I do find the books very addictive reads though. Once you started, you need to read it all. But I never felt the same compulsion towards the movies. But anyway, it does happen from time to time, I go and see a movie or start watching a TV series with very low expectations, and ended up really glad I did watch it. That was the case for The Hunger Game, which my wife almost forced me to watch. I did not end up a fan, but I really enjoyed it. The same thing happened to her with Rise of the Planet of the Apes. She had never watched the original, could not care less about it, now she wants to see the sequel.
Oh, I had watched all of them on TV beforehand (except DH 1), albeit casually,and I saw The Half Blood Prince in cinema (having yet again been dragged along). For me, it was Star Wars and Bond all the way, but DH part 2 changed it all! I thought it was the best film I had seen in along, and I know regard myself a crazy Potterhead. Curiously, HBP is now my favourite Potter film...
Good thinking, films watched at the cinema that induced temporary depression due to being so bad or disappointing.
We should alter this thread to accompany that discussion. It would be a nice talking point, as my list would be ridiculously lengthy, as well.
- Green Zone. Don't remember what I expected, but it was just really slow and had a dull story and characters.
- Clash of the Titans. I could only see it in 3D; 3D was terrible and the film was even worse.
- Elysium. Characters I couldn't care less about and choppy editing made this one terrible movie.
