Is Meet Joe Black (1998) your favorite movie? Why or why not?
Meet Joe Black (1998) is my favorite movie (well comparatively speaking since 1950s). Do you agree? If not which one is your favorite and why?
It's not my "favourite", but I did like this one. It is a bit of a gem from the 90's and I must say I was surprised by it. I wasn't that impressed by Pitt's performance as he was playing death so there was very little to work with. Death was just starting to experience life whilst on earth and coming for Anthony Hopkins. It's worth a watch definitely. It's a bit softer than the average Pitt film, but it does go dark quite a few times in this movie that I didn't see coming.
Are you Canadian by chance? I do detect an anti-Pitt prejudgmental thesis; I did find the ideas melded into this film interesting and quite helpful...
I like Pitt and I especially thought he was excellent in movies like 12 monkeys, fight club, seven and Kalifornia. It felt like anyone could play the part he played but it did show he was diverse. And that's a good thing
Meet Joe Black is not my favorite movie, but it is an awesome movie nonetheless. It took the longest time to discover the plot, but I really liked it. It's been a long time since I've seen it. I have a favorite movie and it's still Good Will Hunting.
Oh Lord, I was just talking about this movie the other day... it's been a running gag between my wife and I for years now. She rented it when it came out on video and while we were watching, it quickly became clear that it was not going to be "my" kind of movie at all. About 90 minutes in I was REALLY starting to get bored and was thinking "Well, it should be over soon" ...then I looked at the back of the video box and saw that the film's run time was almost three hours, which meant I had another 90 minutes to go! Arrrrrgh!!
To this day if my wife hates a movie that I've picked out I remind her, "Well, YOU made me sit through Meet Joe Black!"
Wow! It is my favorite; yet I do understand it is not for everyone...
I generally prefer horror/sci-fi/action films so obviously, "Meet Joe Black" is not exactly "my" kind of movie. I gave it the old college try for the sake of my wife...
The movie was a bit slow! But I loved the idea and the main actors. And I fell in love with Claire Forlani. But not my favorite movie.
I don't have one single favorite. I have many and each fills a certain niche or need.
Das Boot -- because of its music, bravery, reality. The characters really came alive to me. It's the only one on my list of favorites with a downer ending.
Star Wars -- because of the adventure and sense of freedom. When I left Mann's Chinese theater in Hollywood that evening in May, 1977, I had to stop myself and realize that this planet doesn't have interstellar starships.
Star Man -- because of innocence and love beyond all boundaries. Great acting by Jeff Bridges.
Casablanca -- because of Bogart and Bergman, love and sacrifice.
Forbidden Planet -- because of the adventure, mystery and alien culture.
Ghost -- because of love overcoming death and Whoopi Goldberg's stellar performance.
Being There -- because of innocence and the power of spirit and humility.
Dark City -- because of the message, the power of spirit and good triumphing over evil; and yes, because of love.
What Dreams May Come -- because of love conquering death and rebirth.
Patton -- because of the larger-than-life portrayal of one man who remembered thousands of years of battles.
K-Pax -- because of the magic and the effect it had on those around him.
The Italian Job -- because it's fun and intelligent.
The Illusionist -- because of the historical feel, the magic and love overcoming great obstacles.
There are others, but these give a sense of what speaks to me.
I never saw the entire movie (only parts) but from what I did see it does seem really good-not one of my favorites, though. However, it is one of my mom's all time favorite movies.
