As long as that movie is, it's one of the rare occasions where I wanted the movie to keep going.

Lots of good ones in here so far.

Boogie Nights is on my list. I was enthralled from start to finish.

- The Dark Knight.

Absolutely riveting duality between Batman and Joker. Joker was completely turned into a corporal form of chaos and evil and that was script, directing, and acting. Really unparalleled.

- Pulp Fiction

More a collection of short stories than a full movie, but script, acting, storyline, directing, just engrossing and complete.

- Saving Private Ryan

No contest one of the best war movies from beginning to end in all categories.

I feel like the more times I watch this movie the sillier it gets. There are some great moments but man, some really dumb stuff too.

I agree with the posters that say Shawshack Redemption, Back to the Future, and Princess Bride. Both movies that appeal to a very wide range of people. I have to watch them, any time I see them on.

It's always been a meh movie to me that got a lot more hype cause of the death.

There are several Pixar films I can't find much wrong with at all.

Oooo, yeah that's good one that gets forgotten. Special effects are campy and dated, but the underlying horror is excellent.

What film has it all?
only a few movies that I know of that "have it all"

that means action, romance, humor, drama, everything along with pretty much acing it with casting, writing, directing, cinematography, music, editing etc. it has to blend all of those elements while keeping a consistent tone.

citizen kane for example isn't on the list because it doesn't have humor. Jaws doesn't have romance, and so forth. even though they're both flawless movies.

empire strikes back is a perfect movie. it has one blemish which is a 2 second scene shoved in during post production against a terrible matte painting that serves no purpose at all. it's just 2 nobody rebels saying something we already know and it feels like they thought the audience was too stupid to follow along with what was happening...it's like 15 minutes into the movie

ghostbusters while no work of freaking art...it has it all. it's hard to find one single thing remotely wrong with it. it's just the right mix of everything.

Raiders of the lost ark...hard to find something wrong with it and it checks all the boxes

sticking strictly to your requirements

jaws
citizen kane
godfather
the thing


are the only movies I can think of that are pretty much perfect.

quote:

It was also a brilliant move to use the POV of the shark
like so many iconic things from the movies this was not the plan. the shark didn't work so he had to go with the minimalism approach.

re: What is the "Perfect" film, in your opinion?
There are quite a few that I would put in a top 10 list (Master and Commander, Ex Machina, Fantastic Mr Fox, etc..) but in terms of a perfect movie I would have to say A Knight's Tale.

Also in the running would be O Brother Where Art Thou or Princess Bride for a myriad of reasons but mainly that they cross so many genres and can be watched multiple times with multiple different people and all be enjoyable; combining the right mixture of dramatic, humorous, well written/directed.
