Kat’s Top 5 Favorite Movies of All Time [VIDEO]
With The Rocky Horror Picture Show coming to the Centre on September 28th, I’ve been thinking a lot about my top 5 favorite movies of all time – especially, since Rocky Horror is one of them! I thought I would share my top 5 with you!
In no particular order!
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
There are few movies as fun as this one to watch! Released in 1975, this is a parody of all of the bad B-rated movies of the previous decades, set to music. There is no shortage of laughs & shock in this movie and with Tim Curry & Meatloaf, how could you go wrong?
A Clockwork Orange
Written & Directed by Stanley Kubrick & released in 1972, this one is certainly not a movie for everyone, as there is a lot of disturbing content, but it is definitely a movie that will get you thinking on a psychological level – think Pavlov’s dog & Classical Conditioning.
Directed by George Lucas & released in 1973, American Graffiti takes us back in time to 1962. This movie is full of great music, beautiful cars, and an honest look at what it’s like to be a teenager, regardless of the decade, graduating high school, and preparing to say goodbye to your friends before you leave for college.
Dazed & Confused
Much like American Graffiti, Dazed & Confused takes a look at what it’s like to be a teenager, and features more great music & beautiful cars! This time around, it all takes place in a small town in Texas on the last day of school in the summer of 1976. Released in 1993, the cast in Dazed & Confused is certainly a laundry list of names that you’ll be familiar with, even if you’ve never seen this one – Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck, Milla Jovovich, & Parker Posey.
Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas
Based on the 1972 book by Hunter S. Thompson, & released as a film adaptation in 1998, Fear & Loathing is nothing shy of a psychedelic trip through the late 60′s. Starring Johnny Depp & Benicio del Toro, Fear & Loathing is another one of those films, like A Clockwork Orange, that’s a little tough to follow at times, but totally worth watching again, & again.
