要選十部最喜歡電影原來好難

最近發現,讓人知道自己註冊了臉書帳號容易,告訴人自己退出了臉書好難。好友幾十歲還玩連鎖信,在臉書tag我寫十齣最喜歡的電影,我唯有在這裡寫。雖然不必解釋但要選十部電影原來好難,出色的電影太多了。不過拋下品味、拍攝技巧等包袱,隨心靠印象地選,原來也幾好玩。


Coco (2017)

Directed by Lee Unkrich, Adrian Molina. With Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Alanna Ubach. Aspiring musician Miguel, confronted with his family’s ancestral ban on music, enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.

第一部想到而且毫不猶豫的「居然」是動畫。原因可能正是那個「居然」。Coco 的故事完全證明了動畫「居然」可以去到那個高度,毫不兒戲,毫不遜於真人演繹,甚至能拍出一些真人加特技都拍不了的故事。能把很不主流的墨西哥背景和生死題材拍得人人受落,也是一絕。

只看過 Coco 一次,但有幾個原素,就是莫名其妙的深刻,教人念念不忘:Coco 的皺紋、沒有牙齒的笑容(沒齒難忘)、滿地的黃葉。看到網友十大電影選了 Inside Out 我留言說更喜歡 Coco,網友說沒選 Coco 因為對生死沒感,但在我而言 Coco 的重點不在生死而在懷念。懷念,超越了生死。

Ready Player One (2018)

Directed by Steven Spielberg. With Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe. When the creator of a virtual reality world called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune.

很商業的作品。但只要有看電影和認識我的人,大概不難理解我為什麼如此喜歡Ready Player OneCoco 演示了動畫能說出動人的故事,Ready Player One 演示遊戲如何講出好故事。

A Chinese Odyssey Part Two: Cinderella (1995)

Directed by Jeffrey Lau. With Stephen Chow, Man-Tat Ng, Athena Chu, Ada Choi. The convoluted continuation of the adventures of the time-traveling, now-human Monkey King, who attempts to fulfill his divine destiny.

有的電影越看越好看。選西遊記月光寶盒+仙履奇緣唯一讓猶豫的不是怕人覺得我品味太俗,而是選它還是選國產凌凌漆

Forrest Gump (1994)

Directed by Robert Zemeckis. With Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Sally Field. The presidencies of Kennedy and Johnson, Vietnam, Watergate, and other history unfold through the perspective of an Alabama man with an IQ of 75.

btw,誰借了我的 Forrest Gump sound track,還給我吧。我的喪禮可能要用。

Léon: The Professional (1994)

Directed by Luc Besson. With Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, Natalie Portman, Danny Aiello. Mathilda, a 12-year-old girl, is reluctantly taken in by Léon, a professional assassin, after her family is murdered. Léon and Mathilda form an unusual relationship, as she becomes his protégée and learns the assassin’s trade.

無論如何不能少了 Natalie Portman,結果在 LV 兩位大叔之間,我選了前者。

The Dark Knight (2008)

Directed by Christopher Nolan. With Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart, Michael Caine. When the menace known as the Joker emerges from his mysterious past, he wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham. The Dark Knight must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice.

最喜歡的英雄片是它,然後是 Logan,不知這算不算睇人仆街最開心。

The Grandmaster (2013)

Directed by Kar-Wai Wong. With Tony Chiu-Wai Leung, Ziyi Zhang, Jin Zhang, Chen Chang. The story of martial-arts master Ip Man, the man who trained Bruce Lee.

王家衛的品味之選該是阿飛正傳東邪西毒,或者至少花樣年華吧。其實覺得梁朝偉的作品裏一代宗師演得不算最好,但章子怡替他超額完成了,繼我的父親母親後。

Mad Detective (2007)

Directed by Johnnie To, Ka-Fai Wai. With Ching Wan Lau, Andy On, Ka Tung Lam, Kelly Lin. A rookie cop teams up with a former detective with a supernatural gift to hunt down a serial killer.

覺得怎麼也不能讓「島」sir+韋家輝缺席,卻發現單是要在他們的作品中選一部,也不是容易的事。有時我會想,這麼好的電影,該在世界範圍引起迴響才合理。

The Matrix (1999)

Directed by Lana Wachowski, Lilly Wachowski. With Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving. A computer hacker learns from mysterious rebels about the true nature of his reality and his role in the war against its controllers.

好像沒必要解釋。第一次看是在UA6,坐在前排靠邊,好像是第二行,出來其實沒有太看懂。有些電影就是這樣,重看或者看分析,逐漸理解到內容才會越益喜歡。

Man on Fire (2004)

Directed by Tony Scott. With Denzel Washington, Christopher Walken, Dakota Fanning, Radha Mitchell. In Mexico City, a former assassin swears vengeance on those who committed an unspeakable act against the family he was hired to protect.

相對算是冷門,和在大多標準下比較普通的。自己也很猶豫,雖然很喜歡,但只有10部也包括進去麼。但因為女孩那句 “You’re smiling” 和 Denzel Washington 的笑容,最後的名額就給他了。


幾乎要放進十大但塞不進的很多,比如 Manchester by the SeaSilenceLove Letter禮儀師麥兜等。就留一點遺憾吧。
