Favorite Kubrick Movies...

In rough order of preference (it changes day to day):
Killer's Kiss
2001: A Space Odyssey
The Shining
A Clockwork Orange
Barry Lyndon
Lolita
Dr. Strangelove
Spartacus
The Killing
Full Metal Jacket
A.I.

...and I've yet to see Fear and Desire, Paths of Glory and I've never seen Eyes Wide Shut mainly because I find it difficult to take anything Tom Cruise is in seriously.

It sounded horrible, so I skipped it.

Yeah it is the most adult of them all.It also deals with the secret societies and their kinky parties that involve top officials.All his movies are messages and this one was one of the most craziest.

Clockwork Orange is my favorite message movie of his.

Now, for your viewing & listening pleasure, R Lee Ermey's tirades.....

I don't know what a Kubrick is (director, I'm guessing). But A Clockwork Orange is the only movie anyone has listed that I've seen, which is good even though at the same time all the ipidity-dippity fuddley-duddly language made it a very trying and horrendous movie. Forget the singing rape scene, they way that guy talks is repulsive, and is the reason I haven't read the book (though I've tried).
I do not like The Shining. But then again the only Stephen King book-to-movie that doesn't totally suck is Misery and that's because Kathy Bates is really scary in that movie.
I just checked, and those are the only two Kubrick movies I've seen.

If you spoke enuf Russian, all the slang would make sense.
It would also help to be familiar with an obscure British motorcycle brand: Velocette.

What?!? Not Carrie, Christine, Pet Sematary, Shawshank Redemption, Stand by me, Green Mile? Even the Stand and It were great for TV movies.

I didn't like them. Granted I haven't seen Green Mile yet, but everything else book-to-movie of his I have seen I have thought it sucks. You can even add Firestarter onto that list.

Like Revolt said, it's not just something tossed in. It's Cockney English by way of Moscow, basically.

Aye, I'd learnt me a little Russkie, so when I read the book, I thought the Englishized transmogrifications were clever, & a real hoot.
