Your Favourtie Movies Part II: The Bad Guys You Cant Help But Love
k, i've decided to start another movie thread, because i just love movies so much.
this thread is dedicated to the psychopaths who are on a "noble" mission, wether it be noble to you or its noble to them it just doesnt really matter. this is the thread dedicated to the bad guys you cant just help feel sorry for or want to win in the end. so here goes.
Requiem for a Dream: k, these kids were'nt really "psychos" or "bad guys" at heart, but they did sel drugs for a profit at the eventual expense of others (sooner or later osmeone who did their drugs would OD), they did help with the "drug" scene of Coney Island, and they did it for a profit.
Falling Down: the classic example of the bad guy you want to win. i think this is one of Douglas's best movies. you cant help but feel sorry for this guy and just want him to get home to his daughter. and who didnt love the "gang turf" scene when he was orderred to leave and took on these gangsters on his own, and who didnt love the mcdonalds scene too?
American History X: once again a case where the two main characters aren't bad guys at heart, but did help with the negativity of the situation and area. theres not much to say about this film except that it will make even the most pesimistic person believe in second chances, and will make them think twice about their actions and reactions. go see this movie now.
Taxi Driver: this isn't one of my favourties but a great example of a guy at his ends, going n a vigilante justice pring, who in turn portrays himself as the bad guy or psychopath. a prettty good watch.
and thats all i can think of for now, im sure i'll come up with more
