I know of the american version of The Paperboy I think the boy actor was Marc Marut and I think it came out in either 1994 or 95.I tried to find it last year on DVD but only found it on VHS.Love to know if the one Jensen is talking about is out on dvd would like to see it.

Jasen- I like your list.  If I added 50 more to mine I know it would include a great many from yours.  It is really hard to get all the favorites down without missing several. I used my reviews from our database as a guide.

YA, congratulations on your achievement

Thanks Zab - I'm still recovering from the effort  Grin

Thank you YoungArthur.  I like to see movie s   from your list too.  I seen Great Expectations but not old one.  I seen new movie when I was about ten and it was good but not on my list.  

You got movie Color of Paradise.  I like to see sometime.  Its Iran movie I know more from imdb.

Would be nice if more movies are on dvd but many not on dvd yet.

I'm glad Joseph start this post long time ago . Its fun to make list of movies but very hard put best movie on top.  

I put Yearling on top bcause I love film and it got very funny scenes.  My favorite is when boy walks in and see his papa standing on table wearing a dress bcause his mom was making a new dress and she used him for a pattern.  I laugh very long time when I seen this and how boy teases his dad.

Other movies very hard to put best favorite at top.

Here's my list of 'favourite' movies:

I've got two ratings out of ten following each movie on the list. The first rating is for the movie itself, the second is for the boy actors and 'content'.

The result being that my list contains quite a few movies that are not particularly good films but are ones that I enjoy watching nevertheless.

I've only numbered the first 50.  Beyond that I see little need for numbering but they are still listed 'in order' of favouritism.

The ratings I've given do not necessarily determine the order of ranking. I make a simple comparison of which movie I prefer more than another and place it in the list accordingly.


001  Children's Island (80 Sw) Tomas Fryk                                             9      10

zhizhi, thanks for your list...  it has a few titles that I'm not familiar with...  I'll certainly be checking them out.

..and thanks to all the others that have posted lists too.

Jasen,
Some of your add on titles are pretty cool. No Place To Go is a particularly inspired choice. I saw this film last year on TCM and it was pretty good.

cal,
While I certainly haven't seen all the films on your list by a long shot (only 40 of the top 50 and like YA's list, I'm missing your #1), every one I haven't seen is on my wish list save for the two I've never heard of.
What can you tell me about Jim's Gift and The Handsome Priest?

zhizhi,

I have also seen 40 of your 50, BUT your list has the highest concentration of films I've never heard of. Any comments you could add about Childhood Days, Brighter Summer Day, Mother, Sai hu, and Don't Tell Papa would be appreciated.

Everyone,

This has been one of the best threads we've had in a long time.  Smiley

Zabladowski:  I think mabey we watch movie "No Place To Go" at the same time bcause I watch it on TCM last year too.  I dont got satelite cable now for tv but did last year.  I liked movie "No Place To Go" lots.  I cant remember but I think boy in movie mabey was Tommy Bupp or Sonny Bupp.  Very very old movie but its good film.

Thank you for say nice words about films I put on list Zabladowski.  It was very difficult make list of 100 films bcause I dont know I seen so many.

cal:

Thanks. If I were to make my list 100 or 150 films, I'd include many movies on your list. I have seen 160 of it.  Quite a few films you'd seen are on my wish list.

Jasen:

I've seen 77 of your top 100. Many of what I haven't seen are old films that I have heard a lot about.

Young Arthur:

Looking at your list is like looking at movie titles I have put  on my vcr or dvd player more than once. I've seen 89 of them.

Like I said on my first post, it's great to be among film buffs who appreciate boy films.


Zabladowski:

Of the 5 films you mentioned I have two on discs so I'll post vidcaps for these films in a few days.

Childhood Days/Boyhood /Shonen Jidai
(1990) Director: Masahiro Shinoda
Starring: Shima Iwashita, Toshiyuki Hosokawa

It's based on the semi-autobiography of famed anime legend who created Doraemon.

Shinji, a quiet and bookish 11-year old boy, is sent to countryside to stay with his aunt.  He befriends the class leader Takeshi. Yet at school, Takeshi treats him cruelly despite showing affection to him in private. The movie depicts firendship and power struggle among children in a very intriquing way. 

A brighter summer day/Guling jie shaonian sha ren shijian(1991)
director: Edward Yang
starring: Chen Chang (who later starred in Crouching tiger, hidden dragon)

Long before Yi-Yi, Edward Yang had created a masterpiece. Check out the user comments on imdb. They wrote great sypnosis of the film.

Mother/Mama (1990)
director: Yuan Zhang

Zhang directed this moving film about a mother who struggles to take care of her 12 year-old son with autism.  I'll post vidcaps of it.

Sai Hu (1982)

This a typical boy-and-his-dog film.
Kiss The only difference is that it's in Mandarin. Not a good film to be honest. Even Shiloh tops this (not to mention Old Yeller, Lassie comes home or My dog Skip). However with  criteria (a) in mind, I'd happily put it among my favorites.

You can see a small poster with this link.

Don't tell papa (2004)
director: Sang-hun Lee

If you like Korean film The  way home and its star Seung-ho Yu , this is a must own movie.  In the tradition of single dad taking care of his son , there are tons of scenes about father-son bonding. The first time we see Yu is in a bathhouse with his dad. It sets the tone for the remaing 90 minutes. Over all, this is a moving film mixed with some low-brow humors.  I'll post vidcaps later.

Thanks for that quick response zhizhi!

Your description of Childhood Days reminds me of All About Lily Chou Chou, a film I really enjoyed (as did you  Smiley ). I did like Yi Yi so I'd probably like A Brighter Summer Day as well.

I am on record however as not particularly liking The Way Home (except for the grandmother). My favorite Korean film is A Little Monk (#96). The only others I've seen (all on-topic  Wink) are The Crescent Moon, The Way Home and Spring in my Hometown.
Nonetheless I would be first in line to see this if it were ever released where I live.

To tide everyone over until you get around to posting your caps, here's a publicity still I found on the net of Seung-ho Yu presumably in that opening scene.

Yikes...  those men with tattoos look rather intimidating but it's nice to see Seung-ho Yu captivating his audience.  I thought he was really good in The Way Home so I'm very pleased to see he's done another movie...  and it looks like it's going to be a 'must' watch.
