The Land Before Time...
I voted American Graffiti, it's just a great movie.
THX-1138 all the way, man! 2nd best Sci-Fi move i've ever seen!
THX 1138(The George Lucas director's cut) is one of the best movies I've seen. In some ways, it's like Star Wars, because it has so much going on that you don't understand the first time you watch it. When you have listened to the audio commentary with Lucas and Murch, it all becomes so clear.
Also, you just gotta love the notion that it's a film from the future rather than about the future.
Labyrinth was one of the best of it's kind I've ever seen.
Labyrinth. Kicks ass.
'You remind me of the babe
The babe with the power
Power of voodoo
Remind me of the babe'
Excellent Song. Saw that film yesterday for about the 30th time. Still brilliant.
'It's not fair!'
Aha, Sir Didymus!
I thought Tucker was a great movie! We had to watch it in my English Media glass back in high school and I enjoyed it, had no idea Lucas had anything to do with it until now!
American Graffiti. One of my favorite movies of all time, and hands-down the BEST SOUNDTRACK of ALL TIME.
A bit childish, but beautifully made.
Special effects, set design, photography, music, costumes, fight choreography, you name it, it's all top notch.
American Graffiti is the best teen relationship film ever made.
THX-1138 is a great movie, seen it many times and still find it interesting. Though my vote goes for American Graffiti. Im only 20 so i completly missed out on anything even close to that time period, but I can still relate to it. Lucas is the KING of timeless movies IMO.
the easy answer is THX-1138 his best directed film. BUT my answer is not on the list. lucas and coppola produced akeria kerosawa's kagemusha. if you have seen it you know what I am talking about. it is a large scale samauri film. beautiful to watch. simplistic enough that you don't even need the subtitles. but a facitating story of secrets and empires. and justice. right and wrong. love, mortality. and what makes a person who he is. mistaken identy.
the battle scens are epic. and the use of color...breathtaking. the night battle, wow!
it was just released on dvd a few weeks ago. go check it out. KAGEMUSHA
I'll second that, Kagemusha is an incredible film. I was surprised it wasn't included in that Criterion 4 pack but that ones includes 4 great other films. This is a trully epic masterpiece.
Land Before Time since its the only other Lucas film I've ever seen. LOL I'm pathetic.
I love that movie.
Labyrinth. It's fun for all ages.
Definitely American Grafitti. I just finished watching it for the first time in several years, and it's a great movie.
I do like willow....but my reward goes to THX1138. Its just so artistic and different than any other film I've seen. The car chase scene at the end is one of the best chase scenes I've ever seen. It represents speed very well. As well as the movie poking fun at american comsumerism.
One of George's best outside of Star wars.
Labyrinth ROCKS! Just bought it recently on DVD.
"Come inside for a cuppa tea, and meet the missus!"
The Dark Crystal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
American Graffitti. I love that movie.
Though I accidentally hit the button for Body Heat. D'oh!
Willow. I really liked that movie.
Labyrinth. I thought it was so-so when I was a kid, but now it's one of my favorite films. The soundtrack is great fun as well.
