A Clockwork of Kubrick

Since I just rewatched Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket, and have now seen 9 of his final 10 movies, I have decided to rank my top 8 favorite Kubrick films. These are just based on my enjoyment of them, not really ranking them based on their merit as films or historical importance or what-have-you. Why a top 8? Because I have enjoyed 8 or the 9 Kubrick movies I have seen, so really its more of a ranking of how much I enjoyed each Kubrick movie I have seen. Keep in mind, I haven’t seen his any of his first 6 movies, and that I was not really a fan of the softcore porn known as Eyes Wide Shut. If I am going to watch porn, I would prefer Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman aren’t in it, and it doesn’t involve crazy parties with elaborate masks. Anyways, onto the list:

1. Dr. Strangelove of How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

2. The Shining

3. A Clockwork Orange

4. 2001 A Space Odyssey

5. Full Metal Jacket

6. Spartacus

7. Paths of Glory

8. Barry Lyndon

As always, comments encouraged.
