I am a huge Kubrick Fan and wondering how many others out there appreciate his genius...
 
 
questions to answer....
 
What does the end of 2001 mean?
 
What does the end of The Shining mean?
 
Is it me, or was Barry Lyndon boring?
 
Do you agree that 2001 A Space Odyssey is Kubrick's warning about the proposed hoax of Appollo landings?

I've only seen 5 of the above movies (Strangelove, 2001, Clockwork, Jacket, Shining).  Embarrassed

Hard to pick a favorite between them.  All are entertaining in their own way, and it's comparing apples to oranges.  I'd force myself to vote had I seen all the above movies.  As for now, I won't vote.

Barry Lyndon for me.

For reference purposes: Kubrick / Stanley Kubrick  / Favourite Kubrick Film?  / Stanley Kubrick

Interesting to see the evolution of the votes.

I've seen 2001 and the ending was pretty psychedelic. My friend read the book and says it actually makes sense if you read the book, but I guess it didn't transfer to film so well. XD

I chose Paths of Glory, a superbly acted WWI piece, followed by Barry Lyndon. Full Metal Jacket has to be one of the most frustrating movies of all time. The first part (in boot camp) is one of the most intense and ultimately tragic and horrific sequences in film. Then, all of a sudden, the movie goes straight to hell, lacking focus and any of the intensity of the first half. It's almost like two films, one oscar-worthy and one tedious b-movie were grafted together.

I feel wrong voting since I havn't seen A Clockwork Orange yet...

So I won't but from those I have seen Dr Strangelove for sure

Argh, so many good films here... for me it's Full Metal Jacket, followed by 2001, Dr. Strangelove, and Clockwork Orange.

Why do people think the ending to 2001 is so mysterious?  I thought it was pretty clear what happened.  The monolith on the moon was a tool (probably designed by some super-advanced alien species is my guess) to help speed up human evolution.  That's why the apes who found the similar one on Earth figured out how to use tools all of a sudden.  When Bowman gets sucked into that one on the moon, it does the same to him, and he's reborn as a hyper-evolved life form higher than humans, e.g. that fetus floating in space.

I haven't seen enough of his films, but I'm shocked The Shining hadn't gotten any votes yet, so my vote goes to such. Superb film!

Absolutely!! Though I like all his movies, Eyes Wide Shut, has always intrigued me, even after multiple viewings! Smile

Not always - there's a strange one that The Shining won and where 2001 came fourth.

Hmmm... lots of fans here. The Imdb has some wonderful threads there but they argue about his films more than agree.

Another fan here... I gave my vote to "A Clockwork Orange".
I don't think Barry is boring, probably right words will be "slow moving"... it is one of the few movies that makes you feel like you have lived the whole life with the main character, and all that in 3 hours.

I love all of them. I recently saw "The Killing" which was very good. But my favorite has to be the Shining.
