In honor of what would have been Stanley Kubrick’s birthday today, I figured I’d rank his films. Oh dear – I’ve seen less than I realized! Shameful! So I’ll rank what I’ve seen from least favorite to favorite:
**I’ve seen some more! List updated July 2019**
9. Eyes Wide Shut
8. Lolita (but I barely remember it)
7. The Killing
6. Paths Of Glory
3. 2001: A Space Odyssey
2. Dr Strangelove Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb
LOVE The Shining… 🙂
hey, you’re doing better than me! I’ve only seen 1/3 of what’s on your list. For shame, Tom!
Lol. Good – I don’t feel so bad! 🙂 Which ones??
Eyes Wide Shut is up there – really tense, with a great sense of dread. 🙂
It’s Tom Cruise, man. Tom Cruise! Being all Tom Cruise-y!!! Ugh. 😉 And the worst chemistry between an on-screen (and off!) couple. Ugh. Cruise! :-p
Hahaha. Yeah, but he’s not as Tom-Cruise-y as he usually is. And there’s not a couch to jump on in sight. Or Oprah Winfrey. 🙂
Kubrick is one of the very few directors where every film is a top one – not a bad, or even average one among them! Revisiting his earliest works like Fear & Desire, Killers Kiss and The Killing further proved this.
So well done picking a top 6!
Thanks. 🙂 I’m sure I’ll watch more eventually! I do have The Killing recorded off TV so that’ll probably be next.
The Shining is incredible. My friends and I got into a conversation about which classic movies we would like to see in 3D and I said The Shining. They looked at me as if I was slightly unhinged.
Lol! Then you need new friends. The Shining in 3D would be awesome. Especially that river of blood. 😉 And the twins! And, of course, the Here’s Johnny bit…
Great list, I would probably just replace Eyes Wide Shut with Full Metal Jacket 🙂
I’m sure I will too when I see it. 😉
Paths of Glory (1957) and The killing (1956) should also be on your list to watch
I THINK both are IMDB Top 250 so I’ll be forced to watch them for my Top 250 Challenge anyway. 😉
I’ve seen Barry Lyndon as well, though I only remember it being very long. Plus I haven’t rated it at IMDb, so it must been a long time since I’ve watched it. But Clockwork Orange is one of my all-time favourite films, my all-time favourite scene might be the one where he’s cured.
A Clockwork Orange is very good. 🙂 It’s just the final two on the list I’m not crazy about. I’m sure I’ll watch Barry Lyndon eventually!
I’ve seen even less than you have!
Ha. Good! 😉 Figured a bunch of people would think it was terrible that I haven’t seen more…
Odyssey is more than a movie ! But after seeing documentary on the Shining (the new one about interpretations) I started to value it even more, not sure if it’s his best still
I really want to see Room 237! No, The Shining is probably not the best but is still my favorite anyway. 🙂

too much for me, but still amazing what you can get out of this movie !
Cool – I’ll check it out 🙂
