2001 gets much better if you've read the book. The end actually kinda makes sense.

For once, you're right. I actually have read it, as well as 2010 and 2061.

I need to watch 2001 again. I saw it for the first time a few years ago and I really didn't have the patience for it. I understand why it's great...but it felt like too much for me.
I also have Barry Lyndon on dvd...the sets and costumes (and the soundtrack) are amazing, but it's another one of those movies I can't watch unless i'm in the right mood.

My favourite Kubrick film is definitely A Clockwork Orange, saw it for the first time when I was 13...can't say I loved it at first but I knew it was something special...after watching it a couple of times I really got into it and now I love it.

Dr. Strangelove is great too. "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"

Barry Lyndon was tough for me as well, I understand it as a piece of art but I found it a little too slow for my tastes...

I realize that the same can be said of 2001 but for some reason I find it more enjoyable.

The Greatest series will come after the Favorites series, don't worry. Great list, too

I think the 2001 book came after the movie or was written during the making of the movie. I'll definitely read it after I see the movie though.

2. Vertigo (Hitchcock)
3. Reds (Beatty)
4. The English Patient (Minghella)
5. Three Colors Trilogy (Kieslowski)
6. Touch of Evil (Welles)
7. Once Upon a Time in America (Leone)
8. Stardust Memories (Allen)
9. Days of Heaven (Malick)
10. Barton Fink (Coen Bros)
11. Last Tango in Paris (Bertolucci)
12. Spirited Away (Miyazaki)
13. The Big Sleep (Hawks)
14. Once Upon a Time in the West (Leone)
15. The Third Man (Reed)
16. Annie Hall (Allen)
17. Bringing Up Baby (Hawks)
18. Citizen Kane (Welles)
19. The Conformist (Bertolucci)
20. Taxi Driver (Scorsese)
21. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (Miyazaki)
22. Days of Being Wild (Wong)
23. The Miracle of Morgan's Creek (Sturges)
24. eXistenZ (Cronenberg)
25. Gangs of New York (Scorsese)

I like this film a lot, and LOVE Daniel Day Lewis' performance. He owned every single scene he was in.

How many points doe "War Games" have?

Is it ranked higher than "Project X" and "D.A.R.Y.L."?
