The Best Movies. Period.

….the best dick flicks, the best Not-A-Dick Flicks, the best chick flicks, and the best of everything in between.  Because when it comes down to it, what truly matters is not a film’s gender make-up but whether it knocks you off your feet and changes your life for all eternity.  Here (alphabetically, as usual) are the movies that absorb, engross, entertain, and transform the way that only the best of the best can.

I think movies have very little to do with gender or the sex of his protagonists (or antagonists for that matter). It is about letting yourself get lost in an alternate dimension for two hours or so. I mean if a movie can give you:
A a lovely experience
B beautiful visions that inspire you
C a few characters and scenes that will stay with you for a while
then you can certainly consider it “a good watch”, regardless of how many males or females were in it.
It is the experience that counts, and that could materialize in many different ways. It doesn’t have to be necessarily the Whole movie to awe you with its power; it could be A SINGLE SCENE, THE STORY, A HEAVENLY BLEND BETWEEN MUSIC AND IMAGES, A SINGLE LINE OF DIALOGUE, AN UNDERDOG CHARACTER, A VISION THE DIRECTOR PERMEATES HIS SCENES WITH, ETC ETC.

By the way I read your article on Story Broads.
Very entertaining and helpful.
So long,
Daniel
