Top Five favourite movies

Hello to all Internet stalkers and random peeps, today I bring to you a different style of article for once. Rather then just rant about how I hate something or something on those lines, I am actually going to say some things I actually like.

Now this will be three different articles and each one will cover a different top ten and the three I will be covering are listed below.

  • Top five favourite movies. (the one you are reading now)
  • Top five favourite games.
  • Top five(ish) favourite songs.

Now please be warned, these is going to pretty much be one hell of a long articles full of videos and other lovely flash objects I can whack in to make your browser experience as hell as possible. So, without any further delay lets start.

#1 The Lion King

First up we have The Lion King. This movie is seen as one of the massive hits movies inThe Lion King our history and in total three movies was made, a TV series called The Lion King’s Timon & Pumbaa, video games for pretty much everything, Broadway musical and a few other stuff.

The story of The Lion King was originally influenced from Moses from the Book of Exodus, Joseph from the Book of Genesis (both of those being from the Jewish Torah) and influenced by William Shakespeare play Hamlet.

Now the story is a simple one however because I believe pretty much everyone has watched this file that I do not need to say about it.

Now for those whom have not seen it, the original trailer is embedded below.

Overall

This film is very good and worth way more than a quick viewing. If you have not yet seen this, go out and buy a copy today.

Rating: 10/10

#2 South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

The four boys from South Park are back and this time, they are in a bigger problem then they would ever want to be in (then again, they travelled space and much more other crap during their time). South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncuthas pretty much a very basic plot that created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

In a way, I would call South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut a musical. Now while I am sure most people who views Tweaked for your Pleasure would have seen this movie, below is a very quick run down of the plot.

It starts out with Kyle, Stan, Kenny and Cartman watching the going to watch a rude movie from a show they like (the idea is that you are doing the same watching this movie) and basically Kenny kills himself. The kids parents gets pissed off at Canada and Kyle’s mother is able to get the USA to go to war against Canada.

The ending results involved Saddam coming up with Satin to rule earth. How Saddam and Satin came up together, that is for you to watch the movie. For those whom may have not seen the movie, below is the originally trailer.

Overall

Get the movie now and make sure to buy a second copy just incase your first one breaks.

Rating: 10/10

#3 Escape from New York

Escape from New York is one of those films that the acting is not the greatest and the plot is not the best but yet it is a very good film. Escape from New York is based after World Escape from New YorkWar III which involved the United States and the Soviet Union. Due to this war, Manhattan is turned into a massive maximum security prison.

Skipping apart of the movie, the president is kidnapped after Air Force One is taken down. It is at this time, an Ex-Special Force and “legendary fugitive” Snake Plissken is offered a chance for a full pardon should he get into the prison and back out with the President.

Now, I will not ruin the story as I do not think most of my viewers would not have seen it but you may have noticed the names seems to strike a best.

If you have played the hit winning series Metal Gear Solid you would have heard the name before. Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series is based very strongly on Snake Plissken from this movie. This is even seen in Metal Gear Solid 2 in which Solid Snake uses the name Plissken to hide his real name from Raiden.

For those whom may have never seen it, the trailer is below.

Overall

Quite a good film and enjoyable. Very watchable.

Rating: 9/10

#4 Finding Nemo

Finding Nemo is one of those movies you just can not find a fault with. The story basically is about a clown fish called Marlin whom is very overprotective of his son called Nemo.

Nemo goes missing and it is up to Marlin to go and find him. O200px-Nemo-poster2 n the way, he is joined by a forgetful regal tang called Dory and a vegan shark called Bruce. The whole story is pretty much based on Marlin travelling across the oceans following hints about where Nemo is.

Ultimately, he find Nemo and learns that Nemo is able to look after himself and that they all go home happy.

Unlike quite alot of other movies, this one worked together well and you can actually see how much work as been put behind the movie.

Now this movie is quite simple with the plot idea and personally I found it a very good movie. Now for those whom have not seen it, the originally trailer is listed below.

Overall

A very good movie to watch, go and rent it now.

Rating: 10/10

#5 – Under Siege

Now I honestly do not know what to say about this movie. This movie stars Steven Seagal whom if I am to be honest is not the best of actor in the world and that pretty much all the movies he stars in that he is always an Ex-Special Forces and either have to save everyone or revenge.200px-StevenSeagalUnderSiege_cover

Do not get me wrong this one is a very good movie and the others are very good movie but you just never know what makes it a good movie. Anyway, this movie is based on an ex-marine whom is working on a chef which was a part of a deal then going to prison. The whole movie is action packed and enjoyable.

This movie was such a success, that a second one was made which in my eyes was still as good as the first one but once again I do not know why. There is even another one being made to do with something about Islāmic Terrorists or so I hear.

Unlike most other films he has done, this one does not have too much martial arts in but when it does, it is very well done and this is one of the movies I have to say in which there is a good plot behind it and not just focusing on martial arts.

Now for those whom have not seen it, the trailer is one again below.

Overall

I would go out and rent this movie if you do not owe it as it is an enjoyable film that I would watch again and again.

    Apart from Lion King and Finding Nemo I haven't seen the other movies you mentioned……… I quite agree with Lion King…….. I like it and I watched it many times, and will still watch it again, I also like the follow ups, not too sure about Nemo……. yeah it is nice but after all that hype when I finally seen it, it was quite disappointing…

    I am not too keen on Segal……. other than he was quite good looking when he was younger, there is not much to him, and his acting skills…. most movies he plays in are quite boring too, they have played many of them recently on channel 5 (in their "Segal vs Van Damme" season……. Van Damme is the winner on all counts where I am concerned :lol:……..at least I could watch his movies to the end without getting bored …….I don't think I have seen the one you mentioned, so I am not passing comment on that particular movie… I might watch it someday just to see if I agree though…. πŸ˜‰

        If you like comedy mixed with a bit (hah bit) of swareing then you'd absolutely love Bigger Longer and Uncut, I haven't seen that in years.

        I used to have Lion King on video (that was an old machine where you put a tape in not a disc, I use videos nowadays they're a part of my mouse mat I also use them as a foot rest and used to play domino's with them) and loved it however I haven't seen it in about … years seriously can't remember how long.

        When Finding Nemo came out I went with my mum and little sister to see it in the cinema, then when it came out on DVD I ended up with it as a xmas present. I have to say it's one of the best animated movies I have ever seen and I have seen alot.

        Just keep swimming, Just keep swimming, Just keep swimming.

        I used to enjoy Steven Seagal movies but kinda got bored of them when I discovered Jackie Chan (he's old now) so I can't say much about that.

        Escape from New York Never even heard of seriously never, so I am gonna add this one to my list (by list I mean I am with LoveFilm.com and I add dvd's blu-ray's and pretty much any game I come close to, provided I have the console to go with it) and hopefully have it sent next week. I hope it's a good one.

        Honestly, I prefer Jean Claude-Van Damme to Steven Segal aswell, but Steven is still good though.

        I heard that Steven is gonna be in the new Robert Rodriguez film Machete (which is part of the Grindhouse series along with Planet Terror and Deathproof), he should be cool in that πŸ˜›

    Lion King was my childhood classic… I have it on VHS somewhere.

    AND it's an incredibly short film, so you can watch it whenever you want so there's on excuse.

    As for South Park, yup it's a funny film but I'm not a hardcore fan.

    Some of my favourite films, Shawshank Redemption, v for vendetta, saw

    its SawanM by the way
